hina has seen rapid income and consumption growth in rural areas over the
past 70 years, according to a report from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).上海夜网品茶微信
In 2018, rural per capita disposable income had increased 40 times from 1949 to stand at 14,617 yuan (about $2,
088) in real terms after deducting price factors, up 5.5 percent on average annually, the NBS said.
The country’s urban-rural income gap narrowed remarkably, with the ratio of per capita上海夜网
disposable income for urban residents to that of rural residents hitting 2.69 in 2018, 0.64 lower than 1956.
The rural consumption level continued to rise in the last 70 years, as indicated by its expanding size and improving quality.
上海夜网品茶微信Per capita rural consumption grew by an average annual rate of 5.2 percent to reach
12,124 yuan in real terms in 2018 after deducting price factors, up 32.7 times from 1949, while the Engel c
oefficient for rural residents dropped 38.5 percentage points from 1954 to reach 30.1 percent.
Shanghai has seen a sharp decline in the usage of disposable items such as toothbrushes, combs, razors, nail polis
上海夜网hers, shoe wipers and loofahs in hotels since the city’s first regulation on waste sorting took effect a month ago.
According to the regulation, hotels can only provide such disposable items to guests upon上海夜网女神会所
request. The violation of the rule could result in fines ranging from 500 to 5,000 yuan ($72.6 to $726).
At St. Regis Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, the number
of disposable toothbrushes used in July was 30 percent lower than the usual average.
上海夜网女神会所Campanile Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, which is affiliated to Jin Jiang International Hotels Company, also saw a 30 perc
ent drop in the overall usage of the six items, Xiao Bo, brand executive of Campanile, told the local news portal Eastday.
“Toothpaste and toothbrushes are the most requested items by customers. To reduce waste, we have thre上海夜网
e sizes of toothpaste and offer customers a size according to the duration of their stay,” Xiao told Eastday.
Xiao added that the usage of these six disposable items may be reduced by up to 80 perc
上海夜网女神会所ent in the near future as waste treatment regulations get introduced to more cities in China.
Meanwhile, the InterContinental Hotels Group on July 30 announced its plan to swap its miniature bathroom amenities to bu
lk-sized ones by 2021 in order to reduce plastic waste. The move will affect its entire hotel estate of 843,000 guest rooms.上海夜网

uraging farmers to grow soybeans, as seen in China and many other countries such as the US, other ways should be expl
ored to increase domestic soybean production, such as developing new species, she said.上海夜网
According to the ministry, while continuing to encourage international trade in s
上海夜网oybeans, China is also making efforts to diversify its imports of the crop. It has increased imports from co
untries such as Argentina to minimize risks from turmoil in international relations.上海夜网品茶微信
Zhou Tianyong, an economics professor at the University of Science
上海夜网and Technology Beijing, said it is not practical to rejuvenate domestic soybean product
ion solely through the provision of subsidies, which require heavy government investment.
He said more efforts should be made to improve productivity – so that fewer farme上海夜网
rs can produce more soybeans – to reduce costs and increase domestic competitiveness.
Meanwhile, he suggested that authorities could consider using more uncultivated land, in
上海夜网品茶微信cluding desert and grassland, to enable it to be used for soybean production.
Ji, from the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Bureau in Wudalianchi city, said domes
tic development of soybeans still faces many challenges, including higher production costs than for imported
products, and a lack of processing services for the domestic crop. Higher subsi上海夜网品茶微信
dies for soybean exports from some countries mean the produce can be sold in China at e
ven lower prices, worsening the situation for the domestically produced crop, he said.上海夜网
“Authorities should formulate more policies to sup
port development of the soybean industry, and provide more support f
上海夜网品茶微信or the production of non-GM soybeans through financial subsidies and insurance coverage.
“Subsidies should not only cover farmers who plant soybeans, but also other factors suc
h as the research and development of soybeans, logistics, processing and consumption.”上海夜网
Ji said the authorities could provide more support for soybean insurance cove
rage, to enable farmers to be better prepared for losses stemming from natural disa
上海夜网品茶微信sters. More efforts should also be made to promote domestically produced soybeans to increase exports.
In addition, more should be done to protect the environment in m
ajor soybean production areas to improve the production and quality of the crop, he said.上海夜网品茶微信

hina and Japan should jointly resist protectionism and uphold mul

industrial and supply chains, said former vice-premier Zeng Peiyan in Tokyo on Thursday. 上海夜网女神会所
“Trade protectionism had challenged the globalization process of the world and had bee

In Tokyo for the fifth round of a dialogue between Chinese and Japa

Barry became a hurricane as it was making its final approach toward the Gulf Coa
st onto the southern US state of Louisiana on Saturday morning, according to the NHC. 上海夜网女神会所
Barry is expected to bring dangerous storm surge and heavy rains across the north-central Gulf Coast foll
