China has played a m 上海千花网ore active role in global

health governance. The country participates in all of the United Nations’ specialized bodies r

 上海千花网elating to health-including WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA, UNAIDS-and other multilateral health forums.

Moreod in the government’s 2017 White Paper on Public Health, China is now energetically, “t

 上海千花网cus on using the Belt and Road Initiative to improve global health. And often overlooked are Beijing’s efforts to est

ablish international standards on products related to global health such as food additives and pesticide residues.

With respect to health information exchange, China has much to share with the world-particularly knowledge about its 上海千花网女神会所

spectacular health care accomplishments. For example, more than 95 percent of China’s population no

 上海千花网w enjoys basic health care coverage. And life expectancy has climbed to 76.7 years compared with 35 years in the 1940s.

China’s successes in controlling tropical disease, reducing infant mortality, contai

ning malaria and schistosomiasis, and battling deadly infectious diseases (particularly tuberculosis) are truly re 上海千花网女神会所

markable and deserving of study as valuable lessons for the global community. Not surprisingly, Chinese univ

 上海千花网ersities are accelerating research in health policy and expanding cooperative programs with foreign universities.

Unfortunately, however, some cooperative programs in the U

S have fallen victim to the “anti-China hysteria” that has swept parts of Washington. M 上海千花网女神会所

Ex-US Treasury head says department’s credibility ‘damaged’ by accusing China of manipulating yuan

Former US Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers on Tu上海419论坛

i calls for villagers to a 上海419chieve rural vitalization

President Xi Jinping has encouraged residents of a mountainous township in Fujian provi

 上海419nce to continue their unrelenting efforts to consolidate poverty reduction outcomes and achieve rural vitalization.

Xi, who also is general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Co 上海419

mmission, made the remark in a letter replying to residents of the township of Xiadang, in the province’s Shou­ning county.

 上海419In a letter to Xi, the villagers wrote they had shaken off poverty and e

xpressed their gratitude to the CPC Central Committee and the general secretary.

Xi’s letter, published on Tuesday, recalled the three arduous

journeys he made to the township, saying he still has vivid memories of the area. 上海419品茶微信

Xi worked in Fujian between 1985 and 2002. He made his first trip to the township to lea

rn about poverty alleviation and provide instructions on the work on July 19, 1989, when he was Par

ty secretary of Ningde. The township was once among the most remote and poorest areas in Ningde. 上海419

It took him a three-hour car ride and a two-hour walk in scorching sum

mer heat to reach the township, which had no paved roads at the time, according to

Xinhua News Agency. He made another two trips to township, later that year and in 1996. 上海419品茶微信

Xi expressed his delight after learning that the township had shaken off poverty, and he offered hearty congratulations to villagers.

After 30 years of unremitting efforts, Xiadang has shifted from being almost inaccessible to being easily reached and has 上海419

been transformed inside and out, with residents having an increasing sense of gains and happiness, Xi said.

It has been a vivid example of the truth of such sayings as, “A slow sp

 上海419品茶微信arrow should make an early start” and “Little strokes fell great oaks”, he said.

Xi said he hopes the villagers will forge ahead with a persistent spirit, enhance their confi

dence and make sustained and arduous efforts to consolidate the outcomes of poverty reduction.

He also encouraged them to explore a path of rural vitalization with the characteristics of eastern Fujian during the process. 上海419品茶微信

The letter to Xi was written by six Party members on behalf of all villagers in the township.

Xinhua contributed to this story.

hina on Tuesday voiced strong opposition to the US decision to label it “a currency manipulator,” stressing that China has nev 上海会所

er resorted to competitive devaluation and will not use the currency as a tool to deal with trade disputes.

In a response to the designation, China’s central bank refuted the unilateral move, saying the labe

l does not meet the quantitative criteria for the so-called “currency manipulator” set by the US Treasury. 上海会所品茶微信

“The US labeling is an arbitrary unilateral and protectionist

practice, which seriously undermines international rules and will significantly i

ang pointed out that those who stand at the front of causing Hong Kong’s current chaos are a small number of violent r

The anti-China forces both in and out of Hong Kong are the mastermin上海419论坛女神会所

上海419论坛ns by promoting views such as “civil disobedience”, “only violence can solve problems”, and the “noncooperation movement”.

The immediate task for Hong Kong citizens is to stop the viole

nce and chaos and bring back order, Yang said. He appealed to the HKSAR government, its jur上海419论坛

idical organs and police to safeguard the rule of law and never be soft on violent violations of the law.

“With no punishment for lawbreaking, there would be no majesty of the law,” he s上海419论坛女神会所

aid. “The central government has unswerving support for Chief Executive Carr

Yang warned the small group of unscrupulous and violent prote上海419论坛

sters and their behind-the-scenes masterminds not to misjudge restraint for weakness. “

Those who play with fire will perish by it. At the end of the day, they will eventually be punished.”上海419论坛女神会所

China’s State Council, or the cabinet, has issued an overall plan for the new Lingang area of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone.

The new area will be set up to the south of Dazhi River, east of Jinhui Port, and south of X

The district launched first is to cover an area of 119.5 square kilometers, it says.

According to the plan, the new section will match the standard of the most competitive free trade zones worldwide

and implement opening-up policies and systems with strong global market competitiveness.

Kim Jong-un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), again guided the test-firing of “a newly-developed large-caliber multiple la

上海千花坊According to the report, Kim expressed “great satisfaction” with the result of the test-firin

The European Union’s disagreement with the United States over Iran widened when the EU vowed on Thursday to co

The US Treasury Department announced on Wednesday its sanctions on Zarif. “Javad Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran’s S

“We regret this decision,” said Carlos Martin Ruiz De Gordejuela, a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

In March, at the globa 上海乌托邦nance forum co-host

Dialogue facilitates understanding among countries, as was demon

 上海乌托邦女神会所strated in the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations held in Beijing in May.

The conference aimed to create a new platform for advancing equal dialogue, mutual le

The intensifying global challenges humanity is facing now require concerted efforts by countries across the world, he said.

 上海乌托邦女神会所hina strongly opposes a new tariff proposal from the United States

targeting $300 billion worth of Chinese imports, and vowed to take necessary

countermeasures if the move is implemented, ministry officials said on Friday.

Shortly after the 12th round of bilateral trade talks in Shanghai, the US government said on Thursday that it 上海乌托邦

would impose an additional 10 percent tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting Sept 1. The plan will put

additional tariffs on basically all Chinese goods coming into the US, but medicines will not be affected.

 上海乌托邦女神会所The Ministry of Commerce said in a statement that China is “strongly dissati

sfied with and resolutely opposed to” the US tariff proposal. The US plan seriously violates the consensus reached

between the heads of the two countries in Japan, deviates from the right track and won’t help solve the problem, it said.

 上海乌托邦The country will have to take necessary countermeasures if the US tariffs c

ome into force, the ministry said, urging the US to correct its mistakes in a timely ma

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in B
