Recent monetary and fiscal stimulus measures are expe

cted to bolster domestic demand, partially offsetting the adverse impact of trade tariffs on overall growth,” the report said.

The US recently signaled its intention to impose additional tariffs on the European Union, primarily targeted at the

aircraft and food industries. It is in addition to the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs that are already in place.

Amid unresolved trade disputes and higher tariffs, the projected growth of world tra

de has been revised downwards to 2.7 percent in 2019, slowing markedly from 3.4 percent in 2018.

The report warns that “the impact of a spiral of additional tariffs and retalia

tions would not only dampen growth of these large economies, but also have severe spi

The reform and opening-up policies are exactly the ki

inds of market-driven reforms needed to make this happen. The Chinese government is investing heavily in resear

ch and development, but it should be noted that the R&D spending as a percentage of GDP is still lower than that of the US.

Nobody likes competition against themselves. So, it must be admitted that China’s transition to a high-tech, high-

value-added economy will come as a shock to many companies around the world. The US economy, which has about 7

percent of GDP in high-tech manufacturing, will be lightly affected by this change.

On the other hand, advanced manufacturing contributes around 20 percent of GDP in Sout

h Korea, Japan, Germany and a few smaller European countries. They will be much more directly affected.

Government pledges more red tape cuts of items requiri

China will further cut the number of items requiring certificatio

n and refine the procedures through institutional inno

vation to improve government services and foster a more enabling business environment.

The decision was made at the State Council’s executive meeting, chaired by Premier Li Keqiang on Sunday.

Participants at the meeting agreed that the government’s efforts in recent years to repeal unwarranted certification requ

irements and deepen the reform of government functions have produced notable results.

“These are crucial steps benefiting both companies and individuals

,” Li said. “At a time when the economy still faces uncertainties, removing these unjustified cer

tification requirements will help boost market vitality and improve the business environment.”

hina’s growth a source of hope for allong proclaimi

With Chairman Mao Zedong proclaiming the founding of the People’s Republic of China on

Oct 1, 1949, the Chinese people began leaving behind a century of colonial humiliation and building a new life.

What remains poorly understood by the wider world even seven decades later is how dire were

the conditions in China during those days. While China sustained its triumph, Chinese people’s living stan

dard 70 years ago was barely 5 percent relative to their counterparts in the United States.

It was a dire starting point.

Transitions that raised China’s living standard

In the late 1970s, Deng Xiaoping introduced “reform and opening-up” policies

and established special economic zones, which ultimately facilitated China’s entry int

He called on civilians and military to act against the government and urged Maduro to step down.

Venezuela’s Communication and Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said on Tues

day that the government is deactivating a small group of soldiers who attempted a coup d’etat.

“At the moment we are facing and deactivating a small group of traitor military

personnel who positioned themselves in the Altamira to attempt a coup d’etat,” Rodriguez said.

“The FANB (National Bolivarian Armed Forces) stand firm in defense of the National C

As President Xi has said, the initiative originated from

China, but it belongs to the world. China has put forward the idea of boosting global development vi

a infrastructure connectivity, and is working zealously to translate it into reality. This is based on wha

t the country learned from its own rags-to-riches story, its own experience of the benefits of free trade and inte

rnational cooperation, and on its understanding of the role a responsible major country must play.

The forum’s growing list of distinguished guests is credible testimo

ny that more and more countries appreciate the initiative‘s win-win nature and long-term pote

ntial. With 126 countries and 29 international organizations signing cooperation agreements with China und

er the Belt and Road framework, and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank now boasting 97 members, it is m

ore appropriate to call the initiative a global development mechanism than a Chinese one.

The country will continue to deepen supply-side stru

ctural reform and consolidate outcomes in its efforts to cut overcapac

ity, reduce excess inventory, deleverage entities and lower costs, the statement said.

More efforts will also be made to strengthen the dynamics of micro-entities, im

prove industry chains and ensure unimpeded flow of goods and services in the national economy.

The meeting also pledged major new outcomes through enhanced reform and opening-up.

More work will be done to seize new opportunities, improve scientific

and technological innovation capacity and speed up green development, said the st

atement, which also stressed the need for the country to take part in the reform of the global economic governance system.

It is also important to resolutely guard against the practice of forma

lities for formalities’ sake and excessive bureaucracy, as well as prevent fraud to ens

ure implementation of requirements set in the Central Economic Work Conference.

It’s more than just dance: both consider the ball a

 window to Viennese social traditions, classical music, and Austrian culture.

While recommending three must-see Austrian cities for first-time visitors, ambass

ador Stift gave a surprising answer. While well-known cities like capital Vienna with its iconic concert hall, Mus

ikverein, and Salzburg , once home to Mozart, both make the cut, that doesn’t tell the full story.

Brice Péan, who studied at ski resort Innsbruck, showed his know

ledge of China, mentioning Hallstatt, a small Austrian town modeled on a Chi

nese housing development, as an increasingly popular destination for Chinese tourists.

Beijing News also reported that the facility caught fir

 before the explosion. The facility is adjacent to a

natural gas station, the explosion of which caused the tragedy, the report said.

An assessment report on the factory’s environmental protection

facilities drafted in July 2018 by the Jiangsu Provin

cial Academy of Environmental Science showed that Tianjiayi has a warehouse wit

h a floor area of more than 1,000 square meters to store industrial waste, which includes tar and methyl alcohol.

The assessment report said the plant generated on average about 11 metric tons of solid waste and w

aste­water per day, and there has been an accumulation of 4,500 tons of hazardous waste in the factory every

year. While some of the waste materials are transported out for disposal, others are processed within the factory.

A special license is required to dispose of hazardous waste in China. Accor

ding to the Jiangsu’s Department of Ecology and Environment, 460 enterprises in the prov

ince had the necessary licenses as of the end of 2018, but Tianjiayi was not among them.

Official records also show that Tianjiayi had been punished at least twice for violations in waste management.

If the US Congress continues to send the wrong signals

to the “pro-independence” DPP, it will embolden the Tsai authorities to take more risky acti

ons, and thus damage cross-Straits ties further, harming the interests of Beijing and Washington both.

US Congress members are elected by American voters as their representatives and, ther

efore, they should always put the interests of their people and country first. And instigating the Tsai authorities to fu

rther damage cross-Straits ties certainly doesn’t serve the interest of either American voters or the US as a country.
