One day before the opening of BIBF, the 13th Special Book Award of China was held in Beijing上海夜生活

to honor 15 foreign writers, translators and publishers who have helped spread Chinese culture.

上海夜生活女神会所Romanian translator Ioan Budura was one of the award winners. He said he felt enc

ouraged by the honor and wanted to “continue supporting the communication betwe

en China and Romania” in the future. Romania is also featured as the guest of honor of the fair this year.上海夜生活

A Beijing International Publishing Forum was also held on

Aug 20 to discuss how to improve the quality of publishing content and promotion.

上海夜生活女神会所A Hong Kong pavilion has also been opened at the book fair despite the special administrative region’s recent troubles.

“It is Hong Kong’s ninth visit to BIBF, and we want to exchange Hong

Kong’s creations with people in the publishing business and with readers through this o上海夜生活

pportunity,” said Lee Ka Kui, chairman of Hong Kong Publishing Federation Limited.

Lee admits the recent chaos in Hong Kong has negatively affected publishing th

ere since many retail bookstores have closed and much fewer people attended the H上海夜生活女神会所

ong Kong Book Fair that was held on July 17-23. He hopes violence will cease and communication will continue.

This time, 66 Hong Kong companies brought over 2,000 books and other works. One feature of their pavilion is a cre上海夜生活

ation corner showcasing many STEM books – about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“It seems STEM books are quite popular in the world now, and we want to follow that trend,” Lee said.

上海夜生活女神会所The pavilion also contains an artistic and cultural zone exhibiting some Cantonese books.

“I hope we will bring more Chinese mainland writers and books to Hong Kong, and vice versa,” Lee said.

The establishment of a national ethics committee on science and technology will i上海夜生活

mprove supervision and ensure they develop along the right path, experts said.

“There have long been calls to set up a top-level ethics committee to上海夜生活女神会所

enable unified supervision of scientific research,” said Zhai Xiaomei, deputy dir

ector of the National Health Commission’s Expert Committee on Medical Science Ethics.

In 2017, China devised a national park system aimed at protecting more of the country’s areas of outstanding natural bea

上海乌托邦女神会所Xi said the purpose of establishing the national park system is to pr

otect the authenticity and integrity of natural ecosystems, preserve biological diversity, pr

otect ecological buffer zones and leave behind precious natural assets for future generations.上海乌托邦

The system is an important measure taken by China to promote ecological prote

Trump said he had approved the deal in New Jersey late last week, Taipei-based Central News Agency reported on Monday.上海乌托邦

Speaking at a news conference in Beijing on Monday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Sh

上海乌托邦女神会所China has lodged solemn representations several times to the US over the sale, which gravely violat

Local governments told to provide accurate information to authorities

Authorities have found a series of problems上海419论坛女神会所

while carrying out the third national land survey, warning local gover

上海419论坛The problems were outlined on Friday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the central

government supervision team, and involved 20 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions.

In Qinghai province, for example, local natural resources department and sup上海419论坛

ervisory teams were blamed for not taking the field surveys seriously, nor did they urg

e that uncovered problems be corrected in accordance with rules and regulations.

In Yulin, Shaanxi province, entities did not fully carr上海419论坛女神会所

outcomes, and county-level authorities deliberately changed and forged mapping data.

“Those cases reflected problems, such as poor quality surveys a上海419论坛nd data accuracy. I hope that will be a w

He said the ministry will not tolerate the forging of data.上海419论坛女神会所

The Nielsen report also found consumers’ personal financial situation and willingness to spend have been robust.上海千花网

In Q2, the sub-index for personal finance increased from 70 in Q1 to 71, hitting a historical high, and local j

上海千花网品茶微信ob prospects and willingness to spend came in at 77 and 61 respectively, the report said.

Sargent said the Chinese government’s efforts to further cut tax an

The consumer trend index for different regions in China remained stable, reaching 124 in the eastern region while the

northern and southern regions achieved steady growth in the past three quarters, the report showed.上海千花网品茶微信

In addition, indices for first, second and third-tier cities all have increased steadily in the past four quarters, part

icularly in the past six months, driven by better personal finance and rising willingness to spend, the report said.

“In the first half of this year, people’s livelihood indicators such as employmen上海千花网

t, costs and income all performed well. Among them, prices were basically stable, and the supply and de

mand of the whole market balanced, boosting residents’ willingness to spend,” Sargent analyzed.

He said the consumption structure of residents was further improved by a change in consumption concept and m上海千花网品茶微信

ode, which gradually released the potential of service consumption demand.

The report also showed 68 percent of Chinese consumers prefer domestic brands, and even for the 62 percent of co

Cost performance is the main reason why consumers choose domest

Such remarks distort th上海后花园which is that it is the

 criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.

And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园

tioned remarks from these prominent US political figures belies both those denials, since they have incited

上海后花园Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with both the SAR government and the central government.

If the increasing violent acts employed by the Hong Kong demonstrators are still being categorized as p上海后花园女神会所

eaceful calls for democracy by these US politicians and others, what happened in Hong Kong in the pa

st weeks has shown people around the world the ugly and violent side of Western-style democracy.

Here is what rioters have done in Hong Kong in the name of upholding democracy上海后花园

They have repeatedly occupied public spaces to stage illegal demonstrations, they have blocked roads and h

ijacked subway carriages so that people cannot go to work, they have attacked police officers, police stations and pol

上海后花园女神会所ice family quarters, even passers-by, and they have stormed the airport forcing it to shut down three times so far this month.

The Hong Kong police have done what they are supposed to do, which is enforce the law, fight crimes and uphold social order.

Yet by turning a blind eye to the iron-clad evidence of what is happening in the SAR, some polit上海后花园

icians in the US have criticized the Hong Kong police claiming they have used excessive force. One only has to re

call the police actions in Ferguson in the US and in Paris, France, to see how restrained the Hong Kong police have bee上海后花园女神会所

n. But using a double standard in this way has become typical US behavior. Anti-China forces in the West should not un

derestimate China’s determination to safeguard stability and prosperity in Hong Kong. Nor should they un上海后花园

derestimate China’s capability to defend its territorial sovereignty and security.

Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an

y illusion they may have that they will get away with their illegal acts and crimes. And th上海后花园女神会所

e SAR government will continue to enforce the law in the city and bring any lawbreakers to justice.

Journalist abused at上海419ys he still loves Hong Kong

Global Times journalist Fu Guohao was discharged from a Hong Kong hospital on Wednesday, ha

ving been detained and assaulted by protestors at Hong Kong International Airport for almost an hour la上海419女神会所

Fu met media after he was discharged from the Princess Margaret Hospital in the New Territories of Hong Kong SAR. Fu上海419

Fu thanked the public for their care and concern, saying he still loves Hong Kong.

at the airport started on Friday and led the airport to halt operations for two days.

Wearing a yellow press jacket, Fu’s hands and legs were bound while he上海419

was assaulted by a group of protestors who didn’t believe him to be journalist.

Fu was taken away by ambulance early Wednesday morning.

Hours before the assault of Fu, a tourist from Shenzhen, Guangdong province, was上海419女神会所

also detained and assaulted for hours by protestors who had doubts about his identity.

ome journalists tried but were unable to rescue the man, with protestors accusing those journalists of being undercover agents.

上海419The protestors demanded that the journalists produce identity documents to prove that they were reporters.

The man was later rescued after riot police arrived at the airport.

Shortly after Fu was detained and assaulted, Global Times editor-in-chief Hu

Xijin confirmed on his Sina Weibo account that Fu works for the media organization.上海419女神会所

Hu said the protesters’ actions were “shameless” and “cowardly”.

Hu urged protesters, whom he called “mobs”, to respect journalists.上海419

Wishing for a period c上海千花坊rized by violence an

 and prejudice— no matter how soft-pedaled things got right before Hong Kong’s return — plays into the hands of tho

se who want to see China fractured. Whitewashing the crimes of colonial powers, to say nothing of waving their fla上海千花坊

g, demonstrates a profound ignorance of history. Imagine for a moment what the people killed in anti-colonial fights ac

ross the globe would think if they saw this wholesale embrace of their tormentors.上海千花坊女神会所

This is where the contrast between flags must be emphasized. Blind worsh

ip of any national symbol is dangerous, but the Chinese flag stands for very different prin

上海千花坊ciples than the British or US ones. The People’s Republic of China flag represents liberation and an end to exp

loitation, and was only raised after years of bloodshed and revolutionary struggle. That success was the cul

mination of a century of resistance to imperialism, feudalism and colonialism. Countless lives were lost in pursuit of this no上海千花坊女神会所

ble goal, and those martyrs live on in the flag’s red fabric, as do the many others who have stood against opp

ression all over the world. The Chinese people are well aware of this, and treat their flag with care and pride.

But that shouldn’t be conflated with the callous jingoism of “former” colonial powers. Victory in a war of liberation and rut上海千花坊女神会所

hless imperial conquest are polar opposites — the former should be a source of strength and motivation in the fac

e of adversity, the latter should be regarded with the deepest shame. I myself recall my childhood in Texas, wh

上海千花坊ere the flag of the US was invoked to justify unilateral action against countless countries and the massacring of millions. T

he stars and stripes are used as a cudgel against minority groups to this day, and a “love it上海千花坊女神会所

or leave it” attitude is deployed against any critics of the country’s record of bigotry and genocide.
