What’s happening in 上海乌托邦e world next week

Chinese officials and experts have urged politicians in the United States to stop using the situat

ion in Hong Kong as a bargaining chip for negotiations or as leverage for fueling competition with Beijing.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Senior politicians such as US Vice-President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pel

osi have spoken out on or pushed legislation concerning the recent violent protests in the city.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Pence angered China on Monday by telling the Detroit Economic Club that “for the Un

ited States to make a deal with China”, Beijing needs to “respect the integrity of Hong Kong’s laws”.

上海乌托邦”Our administration will continue to urge Beijing to act in a humanitarian manner,” Pence added.

In response, the Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner’s Office in the Hong Kong Special A

dministrative Region said on Tuesday that China resolutely opposes any country attempting to “take Hong Kong’s s上海乌托邦

tability and prosperity as well as the well-being of more than 7 million Hong Kong residents as a bargaining chip”.

“Do not daydream about China making a deal using its territorial sovereignty and national reunification,” an unnamed spokesperson上海乌托邦品茶微信

said in a statement, calling for a halt to intervention in China’s domestic affairs, including Hong Kong affairs.

On Aug 6, Pelosi said in a written statement that “the extraordinary outpourin

上海乌托邦品茶微信g of courage from the people of Hong Kong stands in stark contrast to a cowardly government”, and she reite

rated her call for suspending “future sales of munitions and crowd control equipment to the Hong Kong police force”.

Northeastern province to ban release of some animals to safeguard ecosystem

A revised draft of Heilongjiang’s Wild Animals Protection Regulation, presented to the Standing Committee of t

上海楼凤he provincial People’s Congress recently, aims to strengthen protection of wildlife habitats and food chains.

It said those transporting and selling wildlife and related products should follow laws and provide relevant certificates.

The regulation would ban the unauthorized release of aquatic animals into the上海楼凤

wild and the releasing of animals that may interfere with residents’ normal lives and harm the ecosystem.

The regulation would also ban the release of wild animal species that are not nat

上海楼凤女神会所urally found in Heilongjiang or come from outside the northeastern province or overseas.

Organizers and participants in tourism, animal viewing, photography and video activities

should not interfere with the growth and reproduction of wild animals or destroy the habitats of wild animals.上海楼凤

Those violating the rules could face fines of up to 10,000 yuan ($1,420).

Wildlife expert Zhang Wei, a professor at Northeast Forestry University, in Harbin, the provincial capital, said the current regulat

ion, in force since 1996, was unable to meet the practical demands of wildlife protection. The new version, fol上海楼凤女神会所

lowing the basic principles of the Law on Protection of Wildlife, was significant and necessary.

Beijing has unveiled a three-year action plan to further reform and expa上海楼凤

上海楼凤The plan came up with 190 specific measures to open wider in eight fields in the service sector, including science and tech

New measures will be taken in the professional service field to stre上海楼凤女神会所

By easing restrictions and allowing wider market access for overseas investors, Beijing

has seen a growing number of new foreign businesses settled, including Toyota Fina上海楼凤

The city’s actual use of foreign capital was $8.59 billion in the first half of 2019, with 755 fo

The growth rate of the government’s fiscal income slipped to 3.1 percent in the year’s first seven months, the slowest in four years.

But moderation in fiscal income will not weaken authorities’ capacity for expa上海楼凤

On Friday, the Ministry of Finance reported 12.56 trillion yuan ($1.78 tr

“I was shocked to see so many children waiting in line with their parents and relatives outside the clinics to see the doctors,” she said.

Although congenital heart diseases are usually identified and treated very e

“Though the diagnosis was free, many of the children recommended by local Red Crescent bran上海千花坊女神会所

Du Zhixiong, a resear上海会所ural Development

t Institute at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said China

‘s agricultural sector was plagued by inefficient production practices for上海会所品茶微信

many years, while annual output was highly susceptible to changes in climate.

For example, from 1959 to 1961 large parts of the country experienced a severe drought.上海会所

In 1961, the arid conditions reduced the total crop yield by 61 million metric tons, a 30 percent fall from 1958.

Since the early 1980s, the central leadership has attached great significan

上海会所ce to agricultural innovation. In 2015, investment in scientific and technological research reached 55 billion yu

an ($7.8 billion at today’s rates), compared with 720 million yuan in 1978, Du said.

According to the ministry, more than 96 percent of fields dedicated to the cultivation上海会所品茶微信

of major crops, including rice, corn and wheat, are sown with high-yield, resilient species.

上海会所A number of crop-breeding platforms that employ scientifically proven approaches-such as the use of “dwarf-st

erile” wheat, the “super rice” system and hybrid corn breeding-have been established to fast-t

rack improvements in edible crops and ensure the food supply is reliable and safe in the long term.

The wide application of modern farming techniques ha上海会所品茶微信

s also helped farmers to raise yields and reduce damage to the environment.

At present, environmentally friendly methods are used to prevent and control pests on 56.7 mill

ion hectares under cultivation, accounting for 15 percent of the total area affected by such pests.

上海会所Meanwhile, smarter use of pesticides in demonstra

tion areas has reduced the use of chemicals by 20 to 30 percent, the ministry said.

The use of fertilizers has been further contained as a result of a nationwide campaign l上海会所品茶微信

aunched in 2005. It aims to tailor the use of synthesized fertilizers to suit local soil conditions

and improve awareness of the scientific management of fertilizers among farmers.

Two organizations of the central government expressed strong indignation and condemnation on Wednesd上海419

Meanwhile, the airport resumed operations on Wednesday after the High Court in the Hong Kong上海419品茶微信

Special Administrative Region issued an interim injunction banning unlawful obstruction of airport operations.

上海419The order, requested by Airport Authority Hong Kong, prohibits

any person from unlawfully and willfully obstructing and interfering with ope

rations at the airport, according to a statement issued by the authority on Wednesday morning.

The Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrativ上海419品茶微信

Two mainland residents were illegally detained and beaten on Tuesday night by radical protesters who occupied and crip上海419

“The atrocity has totally gone beyond the bottom line of a civilized society,

which is no different from terrorists’ acts,” the Liaison Office statement said.

The office pointed out that the protesters’ acts, including paralyzing operations of the airport and harassing passengers of var上海419

“This time the protesters have torn down their deceptive masks of ‘peace, rationality and nonviolence'”, the statement said.上海419品茶微信
