in the first seven mon 上海龙凤1314Given the widenin

ing gap between increased spending and the slower expansion of income, some local governments, especially at the co

unty level, are facing fiscal pressure. But the central government will transfer more funds to local go 上海龙凤1314女神会所

vernments to ensure stable fiscal spending and further implement tax and fee cuts, the ministry said.

 上海龙凤1314By the end of July, local governments had issued 2.55 trillion yuan in new b

onds for the year, accounting for 82.8 percent of the annual quota of 3.08 trillion yuan.

A quota of 2.15 trillion yuan for local governments’ special bonds-mainly meant to s 上海龙凤1314

upport infrastructure projects-had been 65 percent used up by the end of July, the Ministry of Finance said.

Market speculation is that there will be additional bond quota space to bolster fiscal spending in coming months. But a seni 上海龙凤1314女神会所

or official at the Financial Department of the Ministry of Finance said in an interview this week: “It is unlik

 上海龙凤1314ely that the government will raise the quota for local government bonds, or for the special bonds.”

Local government special bonds are seen as an important measur

e to support infrastructure investment, and they also are not included in local 上海龙凤1314

budgeted debt. The annual quota was set by the Government Work Report in March.

About 1.55 trillion yuan in local government special bonds had been iss 上海龙凤1314女神会所

ued in the first half, the Ministry of Finance said. The remaining 600 billion yuan

issuance must be finished by September-a State Council requirement to speed financing for key projects.

China should have an expansionary and much stronger fiscal policy in order to inc 上海龙凤1314

rease public spending and prevent a further slowing of economic growth, said Yu Yo

ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Yu spoke at a recent forum.

The fiscal deficit ratio, which may surpass the government target of 2.8 per 上海龙凤1314女神会所

cent of GDP this year, should be compensated by issuing more central government

bonds, said Yu, who also suggested the central bank lower interest rates for the bond issuance.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the comment at a sympos

The president stressed the need to step up support in carrying forwar

Saying that Dunhuang displays the Chinese nation’s confidence in its cu

As the nation strives to rejuvenate its culture, it needs to be more inclusive to extensively develop cultural exchanges wit上海楼凤品茶微信

He encouraged cultural experts to tell the stories of Dunhuang and spread the voice of China to上海楼凤

the rest of the world in an effort to promote international cooperation on the BRI.

Li called for more measures in line with market principles to上海夜网女神会所

adjust prices so the general public can be assured drug prices are stabilizing.

上海夜网Some experts attributed the shortages to price hikes for active pharmace

Shi Lichen, founder of Beijing Dingchen Consultancy, which specializes in research on the pharmaceutical sector, sai上海夜网女神会所

d many active ingredient producers had been closed for various reasons in the last

few years, and many remaining players in the sector had raised prices due to their market dominance.

上海夜网”There must be more punitive measures from the authorities on price manipulation,” he said.

“Meanwhile, it is important for the authorities to encourage pha

The riots have become 上海会所iolent. The police ha

But this is also an exact description of the rising violence between two bitterly distrustful religious communities that I witn

essed on the streets of my native Belfast in British-ruled Northern Ireland exactly-uncannily-half a century ago as a te上海会所

enager in that unforgettable, agonizing August of 1969. The lessons I learned then would serve the people of the H

上海会所品茶微信ong Kong Special Administrative Region well today before they bring an unimaginable disaster upon themselves.

Violent protests against authorities never bring peace. They only bring war, destruction

and suffering-almost always on a scale that none of the demonstrators could have imagined when they took to the上海会所

streets. Prosperity never follows violent protests. At best, there is mass unemployment and despair as local bu

sinesses and national investment flee the territory-a process which could continue for decades. You do not build fac上海会所品茶微信

tories and hire workers when those factories could be razed in one of the endless clashes.

The “freedom” the demonstrators in Hong Kong have been demanding is illusory. It is fool’s gold. It is the mythical pot o

上海会所f gold at the end of the rainbow. This kind of “freedom” will never benefit the people of Hong Kong. At best it could be gra

nted, but at the cost of a serious decline in investment from both the Chinese mainland and other regions of Asia.

Hong Kong’s enormous advantage for decades, including the past two decades under Chinese a上海会所品茶微信

utonomous rule, has been that it is considered a secure, predictable and safe place to do business wit

h the mainland and with the wider region. But that no longer seems true. The longer the protests rage and the wi上海会所

der and more serious they become, the more that incalculable advantage will be eroded.

When I was a young boy, Belfast was still the largest ship building center on earth. In the late上海会所品茶微信

1960s, the British government invested in two gigantic gantry cranes called Goliath and Samson-at the time the

largest such pieces of machinery in the world-to build super oil tankers. They still stand today as tourist attr

上海会所actions, looming 32 and 35 floors high over the city. But they were never used industrially. Not once. The N

orthern Irish Civil War (known with masterly understatement as “The Troubles”) saw to that.

The great shipyard that at its peak employed 35,000 workers became an indust上海会所品茶微信

rial wasteland peopled only by ghosts. Even after peace finally returned to Northern Ir

eland, after 30 years of civil strife, the great complex on Queen’s Island never recovered, never revived.

上海419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin

path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.上海419品茶微信

Northeastern province to ban release of some animals to safeguard ecosystem

A revised draft of Heilongjiang’s Wild Animals Protection Regulation, presented to the Standing Committee of t

上海楼凤he provincial People’s Congress recently, aims to strengthen protection of wildlife habitats and food chains.

It said those transporting and selling wildlife and related products should follow laws and provide relevant certificates.

The regulation would ban the unauthorized release of aquatic animals into the上海楼凤

wild and the releasing of animals that may interfere with residents’ normal lives and harm the ecosystem.

The regulation would also ban the release of wild animal species that are not nat

上海楼凤女神会所urally found in Heilongjiang or come from outside the northeastern province or overseas.

Organizers and participants in tourism, animal viewing, photography and video activities

should not interfere with the growth and reproduction of wild animals or destroy the habitats of wild animals.上海楼凤

Those violating the rules could face fines of up to 10,000 yuan ($1,420).

Wildlife expert Zhang Wei, a professor at Northeast Forestry University, in Harbin, the provincial capital, said the current regulat

ion, in force since 1996, was unable to meet the practical demands of wildlife protection. The new version, fol上海楼凤女神会所

lowing the basic principles of the Law on Protection of Wildlife, was significant and necessary.

Such remarks distort th上海后花园which is that it is the

 criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.

And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园

上海后花园Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with both the SAR government and the central government.

If the increasing violent acts employed by the Hong Kong demonstrators are still being categorized as p上海后花园女神会所

eaceful calls for democracy by these US politicians and others, what happened in Hong Kong in the pa

Here is what rioters have done in Hong Kong in the name of upholding democracy上海后花园

They have repeatedly occupied public spaces to stage illegal demonstrations, they have blocked roads and h

The Hong Kong police have done what they are supposed to do, which is enforce the law, fight crimes and uphold social order.

Yet by turning a blind eye to the iron-clad evidence of what is happening in the SAR, some polit上海后花园

call the police actions in Ferguson in the US and in Paris, France, to see how restrained the Hong Kong police have bee上海后花园女神会所

Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an
