China plans to provide more public exercise facilities and further promote awareness of sport, a senior official said on Friday.上海乌托邦女神会所

Rapid urbanization and growing public enthusiasm for athletic events mean public sport facilities can no longer meet dem

The sports area per capita in China increased from 1.46 squa上海乌托邦

developed countries, with the figure in the United States at 16 sq m, and that in Japan 19 sq m.

The association said China’s national flower should meet four criteria for consideration: it shoul上海乌托邦

The voice of Hong上海楼凤t majority must be heard

It should not come as a surprise that more than 300,000 Hong Kong residents, from all w

alks of life and from different nationalities, participated in a rally convened by over 70 civic leaders on Saturday.上海楼凤品茶微信

That the organizers represented the business sector, student groups, civic organizati

上海楼凤品茶微信ons and police associations shows they’ve had enough of the radical youths, who for weeks have made hea

dlines for resorting to violence supposedly to oppose an amendment to Hong Kong’s extradition law.上海楼凤

These radical youths have attacked police officers, stormed the legislature, and laid sie

ge to the police headquarters, all carried out in illegal and violent fashion, which th

上海楼凤品茶微信e silent majority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region could no longer remain mute spectators to.

This silent majority gathered together with one purpose in mind: to defend the SAR, its residents, its business and its values上海楼凤

by demanding an immediate end to the violence. The message “end divisions, defend Hong Kong” was read out

loud and clear by a young student at the rally held in Hong Kong’s central administrative and business center.

上海楼凤The silent majority of the SAR would have preferred to live a peaceful life and strive to achieve their dreams rather than rack t

heir brains over politics were it not for the danger their city is facing. Hong Kong’s social order and reputation as one of t

he world’s safest cities are not the only things at risk. The rule of law-which H上海楼凤

ong Kong residents cherish most and is crucial for the SAR’s long-term stability and prosperity-is also under threat.上海楼凤品茶微信

The radical elements’ sustained attacks on Hong Kong’s social fabric are a potent threat to the SAR’s上海楼凤品茶微信

It goes without saying上海会所it of both signatories

s from the treaty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stability of the

world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Treaty is the上海会所

US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US di

上海会所品茶微信spensation assumed office in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and mech

anisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.

Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving bilatera上海会所品茶微信

l relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their fac

上海会所e-off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side

s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the

ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.上海会所

Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma

ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could develo

上海会所品茶微信p new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d

eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fu上海会所品茶微信

elling an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt ma

jor powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.

What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to dra上海会所品茶微信

g China into the discussions on certain international issues regardless of wh

上海会所ether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving int

ernational relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and ther

efore remains very much relevant and significant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only上海会所 品茶微信

the US’ unilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.

In order to let Japanese audience have a deeper understanding of the cultural essence of China, and to strengthen the cul

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

The country also encouraged the applications of the Internet Plus model and

The State Council issued a circular on July 18 outlining measures to form professional drug

According to the circular, drug inspectors will be recognized by drug authoriti

ed and produced, as well as ensure that drugs are produced in accordance with laws and regulations.

The drug teams will be established by 2020 at both national a

 上海419品茶微信
nd provincial levels, the circular said, with an emphasis on high-risk drugs like vaccines.

The circular also determined the division of power and responsibilities for both teams.

Drug-inspection teams under the State Council drug regulatory department will be responsible for on

site inspections on the research and development of drugs, medical equipment, and cosmetics for special use. 上海419品茶微信

These teams will also be responsible for overseas ins 上海419

 上海419品茶微信
Provincial teams will meanwhile conduct onsite inspections on the production of drugs, medical equipment, and cos

metics. They will also inspect pharmaceutical wholesale enterprises, headquarters of retail chains, as well as thir

d-party online sales platforms, and provide guidance for regulatory departments at county level.

Rules and process specifications for drug inspection should be further improved, and a national unified database and informat 上海419品茶微信
