Ahead of the second亚博极速下注千花网f the bill in the Legis

?the Legislative Council, the protests escalated.

On June 15, Hong Kong leader Lam suspended the bill. The next da亚博极速下注千花网

y, Lam apologized and offered to “accept all criticism” and “serve the public”.

But the demonstrations did not stop.

亚博极速下注千花网女神会所Paul Yeung, a Hong Kong-based researcher and commentator on public policy, said the protests against the extradi

tion bill have morphed into demonstrations against the local government’s manner of responding to pub

lic opinion. Thus the protests are continuing, though the bill has been declared “dead”, he said.

Some observers say many y亚博极速下注千花网oung people who took to the streets were merely affected b

y peer influence, instigated by a small number of radicals, and lost their critical thinking and simply followed.

Yeung said another factor leading to the situation in Hong Kong is that the government亚博极速下注千花网女神会所

has failed to respond in a timely manner to young people’s aspirations and sentiments throughout the process.

亚博极速下注千花网He said channels that the Hong Kong government is to establ

ish to communicate with local people can help break the city’s current deadlock.

But he said it will be a difficult task, given the tense social atmosphere. “It is imperative to restore peace and r亚博极速下注千花网

ationality to society, with both sides showing a willingness to compromise before dialogue,” he added.

Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 150 years, and p亚博极速下注千花网女神会所

art of it, Hong Kong Island, was ceded to the United Kingdom after a war in 18

42. In 1898, China also leased the rest of Hong Kong-the New Territories-to the British for 99 years.

亚博极速下注千花网Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country

, two systems”, which means Hong Kong is part of China and enjoys a high degree of a

Wang also attended a亚博极速下注千花网eeting held later on Fri

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信embers, China, Japan, ROK, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Russia and India.

At the gathering, Wang called on parties involved to secure the multilatera

l trading system with the World Trade Organization at its center, and said un亚博极速下注千花网

ilaterally imposed sanctions or additional tariffs are not helpful to resolving of trade issues.

Thai Foreign Minister Don Pra-mudwinai said that bolstering free trade was mentioned throughout the discussions.

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信After the conclusion of an important meeting of the Commu

nist Party of China Central Committee, the participants said China seeks to make its fiscal policy more eff

ective and maintain “reasonably ample” liquidity. And instead of resorting to a stimulus in the real estate market, Ch亚博极速下注千花网

ina will lay emphasis on “proactive fiscal policy and prudent monetary policy”.

It is a challenging balancing act, but the right stance at the right time.

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信Meanwhile, White House pledged to impose an additional 10 percent tariff on Chin

ese imports to the US, which caused US stocks to tank 280 points. The White House needs a scapegoat as the Fed cuts can

not offset Trump’s tweet policies, US growth is slowing and a slowdown is looming in 2020.

The CPC Central Committee seeks to avoid targeted but costly stimulus polic亚博极速下注千花网

ies, which could exacerbate new risks of asset bubbles over time, while ensuring adequate fiscal support. Since in

frastructure investment remains relatively soft by historical standards, fiscal easing on investment is likely in the s

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信econd half of the year. And it could be tilted toward small enterprises and startups.

This year’s growth to be within range

Moreover, fiscal easing is likely to be coupled with monetary support, including cuts in the banks’ reserve r亚博极速下注千花网

equirement ratio. Although the fiscal easing tilt could cause downward pressure on Chinese bond yields and co

rporate spreads in the near future, the big picture suggests stabilization and resilience.

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信In the second quarter, the Chinese economy grew 6.2 percent compared with 6.4 percent in the

first quarter, but that was hardly surprising in view of the global challenges. China’s econ

omic growth is within the target range of 6 percent to 6.5 percent set by t亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信

ins achievable even if growth stabilizes around 6 percent to 6.2 percent in the second half.

According to Zhang Shu亚博极速下注千花网 of the Yantai Ar

rt Museum, Peking Opera became popular in Yantai back in the 19th century after some famous Peking Opera maste

rs performed there, including Tan Xinpei (1847-1917), the founder of Tan-style performance.亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信

Tan, who gave three shows in Yantai in 1868, was the first Peking Opera master who performed in Yantai.

亚博极速下注千花网Peking Opera master Zhou Xinfang (1895-1975) made his debut performance in Yantai in 1907 when he was 12 years old.

After that he performed in Yantai six times from 1907 to 1931, which made him a household name in the city.

“Then, Peking Opera troupes which toured the country stopped by the docks at the亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信

port in Yantai. as the city was regarded as a place which could test the popularity of the artists,” says Zhang.

During the summer camp, the Yantai Art Museum will also hold Peking O

亚博极速下注千花网pera exhibitions, displaying artworks based on the old art form, including paper-cutting, in

k paintings, sculptures and facial makeup, which introduce the history and characters of Peking Opera.

On Aug 7, the exhibition will move to Beijing.亚博极速下注千花网

Meanwhile, according to Zhang Zuling, the director of Yantai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism, Yantai has 10 pr

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信ofessional Peking Opera troupes, which give over 1,000 shows each year in the city.

In 2018, a project was launched by the government to promote Peking Opera in Yantai, especially among the young generation.

An original Peking Opera production Liberation of Yantai, which chronicles Yantai’s亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信

liberation during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-1945), was premiered by Yantai Pekin

亚博极速下注千花网g Opera Company, and was also staged at the eighth China Peking Opera Art Festival in Nanjing, Jiangsu province.

Speaking about the project, Zhang Zuling says: “In 2018, over 80 million tourists came to Y亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信

antai. It’s a great platform to revitalize the old art form among the young students.”

and the country’s regulators are looking at ways to further liberalize its potential.

Immediately after the three-day Dragon Boat Festival at the beginning of June, during which, according to China’s Ministry of C亚博极速下注千花网

ulture and Tourism, Chinese tourists spent 39.3 billion yuan ($5.72 billion) on domestic travel, the country’s sav

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信vy internet users were busy arranging their shopping carts for the online sales day on June 18.

“It is the best time to stock up on those daily necessities of life for the whole year,” said Hong X

亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信washing liquid value deal on Tmall, one of the country’s biggest e-commerce platforms.

She said the sales day was not just about saving money, but also about en

joying better products. “For example, wet toilet tissue is quite expensive if you buy it in

the supermarket one pack at a time, but it is much more affordable during the sales day if you buy in bulk,” she said.亚博极速下注千花网

Consumers like Hong, who have a strong willingness to spend to make their lives easier, are adding

impetus to national consumption, which achieved an eye-catching performance in the first quarter of亚博极速下注千花网品茶微信

2019, according to Nielsen, the New York-headquartered information, data and measurement company.

Nielsen’s report said that in the first quarter, China’s consumer trend index, which measures perceptions of local job pr

“亚博极速下注千花网Poland is known worldwide for the q

He said the CISMEF is an international event which features the highest level, largest scale and most wid
