A story by the head of the National Endowment for Democracy published in The Washingt

In that riot, 197 innocent people were killed and 1,700 more injured. Without showing any sympathy to the dead and injur

Looking at what happens in Xinjiang through such a prism of bias, it is not uncom

The vocational training centers China has organized are meant to equip Uygurs, in partic

so that they can land a job to make a decent living, which will hopefully keep them away from contact with extremism.

Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack

上海后花园品茶微信s in more than three years; tourist trips made to Xinjiang from home and abroad reached 150 million last year; its econo

9.8 million to over 12 million in over a decade with their religious rights and activities strictly protected by law.

It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信

what it has done and is doing in Xinjiang, want to see this region being plagued by terrorist attacks. It seems as if they consider a

Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.

• What is China’s position and attitude toward Sino-US economic and trade friction?

Since some people in the US provoked the Sino-US economic and trade friction, the two sides have increasingly taken divergent approaches to this issue. That is, s上海后花园

hould it be taken as a zero-sum game or based on mutual benefit, being addressed through confrontation or cooperation? Should the countries stay enc

losed or open up, maintaining a monopolistic or competitive market? Should the countries stick to unilateralism or multilateralism? All these differences are underpinned by the ulti上海后花园女神会所

mate question of whether the world is governed by the old way of hegemonism, or a new approach by building a community with a shared future for m

上海后花园女神会所ankind. China’s position and attitude toward these major fundamental issues is clear, firm and consistent.

Faced with the economic and trade friction provoked and escalated by some people in the US, China does not want a trade war. However, the country is not afra

id of a trade war and will fight one if necessary. Proceeding from safeguarding the common interests of the two countries and the world trade order, Chin上海后花园女神会所

a has responded to the concerns raised by the US with great sincerity. China overcame various difficulties, proposed practical solutions, and conducted 11 rounds of high-level ec

onomic and trade consultations with the US, which demonstrated China’s sincere desire of not fighting a trade war. How

ever, the US has continuously challenged China’s bottom line and overstepped the red line of norms governing international relations, att上海后花园女神会所

empting to sacrifice China’s rights to development and even damaging China’s sovereignty and dignity.

No matter how the situation develops, China runs its own affairs well. The fundamental way to deal with ec

onomic and trade friction is to develop itself through reform and opening-up, which China will continue to deepen.

China’s Qomolangma climbing season runs from April 10 t

At least four deaths have been blamed on crowding during the climbs, Agence France-Presse reported.

People should be well prepared to handle Qomolangma’s traffic jams which are common phenomena along climbing paths, said alpinists who had reached the summit.

“Although the news about the jam on Qomolangma this year has gone viral, people should understand that it happens every year during the brief cl

imbing window. Knowing what to do when climbers jam the narrow paths should be incl

uded in their training well in advance,” said Ma Liyamu, who reached the top of Qomolangma, the world’s ta

llest mountain at 8,848 meters, on May 22 and was also held up by the crowds on her descent.

She is the leader of a mountaineering team of three Chinese women w

ho scaled Qomolangma. They launched their expedition from Nepal, which issued 381 cli

mbing permits for the season that concludes this week. Nepal’s permits this season cost $11,000 each.

Panda researchers hope algorithms and AI technology will

The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distri

bution, ages, gender ratio, birth and deaths of wild pandas, who live in deep mountains and are hard to tr

ack,” said Chen Peng, a researcher with the base who co-authored a paper on “Giant Panda Face Recognition Using Small Database.”

“It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals,” Chen said.

China has carried out four scientific field research project of giant pandas in the wild.

The giant panda was scientifically discovered 150 years ago and n

amed in the city of Ya’an, Sichuan. It remains one of the world’s most endangered species.

The number of captive pandas was 548 globally as of November last y

Intensified law enforcement also benefits overseas ent

than 6,000 cases of infringing on rights of trademark registrants from overseas, with a t

The danger here lies in the fact that excessively low

growth targets, based on excessively low estimates of potential growth, lead to lower actual growth. Fo

r an economy the size of China’s, a difference of even 1 percentage point has a huge impact on welfare.

Many economists would counter that a conservative growth target is useful-or even necessary-to create space for struct

ural adjustment. But this claim is unconvincing. Reducing China’s excessive reliance on investment in real es

tate-one of the economy’s most serious structural problems-does not necessarily require a reduction in FAI gro

wth, let alone GDP growth. Nor is slower GDP growth a prerequisite for improving financial stability.

China must pursue as high a growth rate as possible

In my view, because no one is sure what exactly China’s potential growth rate is, the best strategy is to try to achieve as high a g

rowth rate as possible, so long as it doesn’t worsen inflation and hinder structural adjustment.
