d in incorporating garbage classification into the rule of law.

 上海419品茶微信The regulations for example say that people can be fined up to 2,00

0 yuan for mixed garbage and 50,000 yuan for mixed transportation by units.

The regulations also hold that disposable cups and utensils cannot be used in the Shanghai Party internal office and  上海419government organs.

Hotels will no longer provide disposable household necessities or they’ll

 上海419品茶微信be fined at least 500 yuan and less than 5,000 yuan. Caterers cannot provide disposable tab

Editor’s note: Japan has restricted the exports of three highly specialized products needed to make sem

Tokyo vents anger against ROK moves

 上海419Japan has restricted the exports of the three products to the ROK mainly to vent its anger agai

nst the ROK Supreme Court’s ruling last year that Japanese companies must compensate Koreans forced

to work in mines and factories and as “comfort women” before and during World War II, ROK President Moon Jae-in’s 上海419品茶微信

hard-line policy toward Tokyo, and the two countries’ conflicting policies on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.

Besides, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants to portray himself as

 上海419a strong leader who brooks no nonsense so his ruling Liberal Democratic Party, along with

its coalition partner Komeito, can win two-thirds of the seats in the upper house election on Sunday. To some exte

nt, Japan also intends to show the United States that it will respond aggressively to any moves it considers harm 上海419品茶微信

ful to the country, so that the US stops coercing Japan to compromise its economic interests.

Knowledge city shines上海夜生活 as beacon of innovation

The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is expected to at

tract a further influx of dynamic investment and professionals – thanks to closer coop

上海夜生活女神会所eration just announced between the Lion city and the southern Chinese coastal province of Guangdong.

Officials said SSGKC’s importance continues to grow, and the iconic project for Sino上海夜生活

-Singaporean collaboration since 2010 will soon be elevated to the status of a State-level bilateral project.

上海夜生活女神会所Situated at the heart of Pearl River Delta Region and in a massive greenfield site in the s

outhern city of Guangzhou, SSGKC is widely seen as a model and catalyst for the economic transformation and the ind

ustrial upgrade of the province as a global producer of cheaper goods to high-end and cutting-edge production.上海夜生活

At a total site area of 123 square kilometers, it is being developed in a series of phases over the 15-20 years starting from 2010.

上海夜生活女神会所The officials added that both the Chinese and Singaporean governments have agreed

to deepen their collaboration in terms of scientific innovation, intellectual property rights, financial se

rvices, personnel exchanges, industrial development and community management.上海夜生活

Part of their collaborative efforts, the Sino-Singapore Knowledge Forum, was held in Singapore for the first time on Friday.

上海夜生活女神会所The event was a strategic and SSGKC-hosted summit promoting di

alogue between government officials, academics and entrepreneurs from Guangdong and Sing

apore on hot-button topics concerning the practices of bilateral collaboration.上海夜生活女神会所

On the same day in Singapore, memorandums of understanding and strategic cooperation agreements were signe

d at the annual meeting of the Singapore-Guangdong Collaboration Council, an official body co-chaired by Ma上海夜生活

Xingrui, governor of Guangdong and Ong Ye Kung, education minister of Singapore.

上海夜生活女神会所The new projects, which cover several sectors including artificial intelligence, smart trave

l and training, will give a powerful boost to the development of SSGKC, local officials said.

The conventional bulb 上海龙凤419et is indeed declining, but

we are declining less than the market. Instead we are increasing our market share, so it’s still quite a sizable

上海龙凤419女神会所business for us. We are keeping our profitability high and the cash flow is still good. The other businesses are growing in a co

mplicated market because the Chinese economy is not (growing) the same as before, and neither is Europe. The rest of t

he growth engines have grown in both sales and profits. It proves their contribution to profits.上海龙凤419女神会所

What’s your take on the current global economic uncertainty especially in US-China trade? How will this affect your company’s business?

上海龙凤419女神会所The world has become a much more complex place to do business. Although the trade friction hasn’t had a real impact on us

yet, we have of course paid attention to the two big superpowers in the world that not only have an impact on bila

teral relationships, but also worldwide. We believe in free markets, and global market uncertainty is det上海龙凤419女神会所

rimental to business activities. We think the world is global, technology is global, and knowledge is global. We will cont

i上海龙凤419女神会所nue to invest quite a lot worldwide, and of course in China. We have made two acquisitions, LiteMagic and WiZ. We con

tinue to invest here because we believe in the potential of the Chinese economy.

You had a big presence during last year’s CIIE. What about this year?上海龙凤419

We plan to make our exhibition space 50 percent bigger at about 300 square meters. Meanwhile, we wil

上海龙凤419女神会所l showcase our latest innovations, including Li-Fi to Li-Fi Generation 2, Zigbee based Hue, Wi-Fi-based

WiZ, horticulture lighting, animal lighting, 3D printing and other new applications.

Last time we talked about Li-Fia two-way, high-speed wireless technology similar to Wi-Fi, which uses light waves instead of radi

o waves to transmit data. Signify’s Li-Fi products could provide a broadband internet connection through light waves wi

thout compromising lighting quality. But it was the beginning of it. Now we can say that we have four pilots in China for Li-Fi – one

with the China Academy of Building Research, where they’re testing and improving the capacity of that technology. So, we’ve moved from prese

nting the technology to application, finding customers and developing pilots. So this is the big change from last time.

Do you have any plans especially in the Yangtze River Delta region?

We don’t only look at our investment from a geographic perspective. We have invested in research and development and China is ho

me to the second biggest R&D center that we have. We develop not only for China but also for the world. It’s mostly in

Shanghai but also in Shenzhen. With that company, we are “potentializing” it, which is increasing sales in China, but

also helping the products that company has worldwide. We believe in investment, and we’re going to invest more.

A 2015 report by Brookin上海千花网olars Stuart Butler an

 Jonathan Grabinsky stated that while racial segregation has been declining over the last

50 years in the larger metropolitan areas, there are exceptions to this rule, one of which is Washington. It s上海千花网

aid “there remains a stark, persistent, white-black racial divide” from the rate of poverty to the level of education.

上海千花网Rice can also compare notes with her current colleagues, such as Derek

Hyra, an associate professor at the American University, where Rice is now a disting上海千花网女神会所

uished visiting research fellow in its School of International Service. I cherish my chat with Hyra on the racial issue two y

上海千花网ears ago in Washington and learned a lot from his book, Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.

Rice may call me biased if I share my observations on the racial issue after living and working in

Washington for five years. But fellow journalists have covered extensively the racial segregation in Washington.上海千花网女神会所

Responding to Washington’s latest threat to impose additional tariffs on another $325

billion of Chinese exports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Washin上海千花网

gton to show “determination and perseverance” and work with Beijing to find a way out of the current impasse.

上海千花网女神会所Washington says the two sides still have a long way to go before they can conclude a trade deal, but a

s the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The question that the two sides now have to answer is what that first step is to be to get the stalled trade negotiations moving again.上海千花网

In recent remarks on the trade talks, US officials claim Washington is not in a hurry, and a quality deal is all that matters.

Aaron Wiener, a veteran reporter at the Washington City Paper, descr

上海千花网女神会所ibed Washington as the sixth most segregated city. “DC remains wildly segregated, with an ove

rwhelming white majority west of Rock Creek Park and an overwhelming black majority east of the Anacostia River … DC

‘s racial divide is evident to anyone who’s spent time in the city. It shows up in every facet of District life, including vot上海千花网女神会所

ing patterns, home purchase, and school choice,” Wiener wrote in an article.

Senator Bernie Sanders, during his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, made it a priority to repair the US上海千花网

public education system and end school segregation and racial discrimination against students.

Rice would do better to devote time to such campaigns and fix the racial p上海千花网女神会所

roblems rather than distracting public attention by making a fuss over Zhao’s tweet.

Re-weighting of indexes 上海会所affect capital flows

Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they inten

上海会所d, to increase the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.

Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MSCI上海会所品茶微信

Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la

上海会所rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent-a significant inc

rease from the current 0.7 percent-of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.

The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese mainland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated Chi上海会所

na’s A-shares to emerging market status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon f

上海会所品茶微信ull implementation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.

And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-den上海会所

ominated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R

ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.上海会所品茶微信

The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a

sizable share of the investible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tr

上海会所acked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and

other investors. And the re-weighting of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capit

al across emerging markets. As a result, China’s asset market will inevitably become more important for glo上海会所

bal investors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.

上海会所品茶微信Welcome shift for Chinese firms and global investors

An increased weighting for China’s securities in these indexes in the MSCI would me

an a larger allocation of AUM by foreign fund managers into the Chinese markets. While this shift would b上海会所品茶微信

e a welcome development for both Chinese enterprises seeking financing and global i

nvestors searching for emerging opportunities, it potentially represents bad news for other emerging markets.

But removing an e上海后花园e from the Entity List is a co

omplicated process, which requires a unanimous vote of the En

d-User Review Committee, which comprises the Department of Commerce as chair, and the depar上海后花园

tments of state, defense and energy and other agencies. Which means Huawei could remain on the list for some time.

上海后花园品茶微信The US may have relaxed restrictions on Huawei, but that alone is not enough for the Chinese company

to develop its overseas markets. So Huawei can continue to purchase chips and other tech上海后花园

products from US companies to make mobile phones but cannot sell those mobile phones in the US.

Also, the US’ decision to keep Huawei on the Entity List until the concl

上海后花园品茶微信usion of the Sino-US trade negotiations will lead to considerable uncertainty. And the US presi

dential election next year could complicate matters further, as the American public opinion about China,

and the attitudes of the Democratic and the Republican parties could influence the final outcome.上海后花园

The US has relaxed the restrictions on Huawei as a negotiation strategy w

ithout changing its China policy. Since the information and communication te

上海后花园品茶微信chnology sectors of the two countries are still intertwined thanks to economic globalizat

ion, Huawei and China’s high-tech industry have become bargaining chips in Sino-US trade negotiations.

Chinese companies should therefore make greater efforts to intensi上海后花园

core technologies, so they can better tackle eventualities and ultimately become self-sufficient.

Multiple local governments including those of Handan in Hebei province, Jinan in Shand

上海会所品茶微信ong province, and Tianjin have banned the so-called Beijing Bikini-which refers to men who roll up their sh

irts or T-shirts to expose their bellies in public places in summer. Aimed at promoting civilized behavior, the ban is a tim

ely move as the “Beijing Bikini” is considered offensive, especially by women.上海会所

Yet the good intentions of the local governments cons

上海会所titute only the first step toward promoting civilized behavior, par

ticularly in public places. So the authorities should consider all possible options

and devise an appropriate plan to ensure the ban on Beijing Bikini is actually implemented.上海会所品茶微信

In this regard, Handan’s move offers some food for thought, as civic inspectors in Hanshan district gift a T-shirt to men in B上海会所

eijing Bikini to cover themselves up. This method of correcting uncivilized behavior in a c

ivilized way reflects proper social management and sends a goodwill signal to the people in general.

上海会所品茶微信However, it is necessary to make certain facts clear, and adopt the most appropriate m

ethods to deal with the issue. For instance, men in Beijing Bikini cannot be held guilty of committing an of

fense. At most, their behavior may be deemed uncivilized. In sociological terms, the

act of a man wearing nothing above the waist could be defined as minor transgression.

上海419论坛Just as Deng Xiaoping said, some Western countries use issues su

of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, on Wednesday, it was decided t上海419论坛

hat 10 percent of the shares of domestic large-and medium-sized State-owned e

nterprises will be transferred to the social security fund. Beijing News comments:上海419论坛女神会所

State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co

mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.上海419论坛

After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits

as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.

Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel

ied on enterprises and fees paid by individuals plus financial subsidies.上海419论坛女神会所

Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo

wed to get their pensions without ever paying for them, which means the whole society sub上海419论坛女神会所

sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.

Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev上海419论坛

er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this

year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account

s for less than 10 percent of the planned total. Only four provinces had started the job.上海419论坛女神会所

Liu Bingjiang, head of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment’s air quality management department, said at the same fo上海千花坊品茶微信

rum that it is unfair for companies with high operational costs on environmental protection to compete und

上海千花坊er the same market conditions against those investing little into environmental protection.

The authorities will bring in industrial associations to tighten emissions assess

ment on steel producers when granting exemptions from production restrictions, he said.上海千花坊

Those with poor environmental protection records or that scheme to cheat the assessment will be severely punished, he said.

上海千花坊品茶微信Currently, China enforces steel production restrictions in key areas on days forecast to have heavy air pollution, and

roducers with ultra-low carbon emissions are allowed to have lower or no production cuts.

More than 60 steel producers in key areas, with a total crude steel capacity of 260 million上海千花坊

tons, have upgraded to meet ultra-low carbon emission standards, according to Liu.

上海千花坊品茶微信China expects 60 percent (340 million tons) of existing crude steel capacity in key areas

to be made with ultra-low carbon emissions by 2020, according to a ministry guideline released this year.

Li Xinchuang, president of the China Metallurgical Industry Planni

g and Research Institute, said that to achieve low-carbon emissions involves upgrades in上海千花坊

the whole process of steel production, and more attention should be paid to procedures such as raw materials tra

上海千花坊品茶微信nsportation and storage, which often generate emissions that are difficult to contain.

China’s oil and gas industry saw steady growth in 2018, with expansion reported in both pr上海千花坊

oven reserves and annual output, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources on Monday.

In 2018, national exploration of oil and gas saw a total investment of 63.66 billio

n yuan (about $9.26 billion), up 8.9 percent year on year, the ministry said in a report on its website.上海千花坊品茶微信

Investment in oil and gas exploitation rose 24.7 percent to reach 203.11 billion yuan, according to the ministry.
