According to a State Council executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang, demand-oriented development of elderly car

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

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

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

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

“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.

ing gap between increased spending and the slower expansion of income, some local governments, especially at the co

vernments to ensure stable fiscal spending and further implement tax and fee cuts, the ministry said.
上海龙凤1314By the end of July, local governments had issued 2.55 trillion yuan in new b

A quota of 2.15 trillion yuan for local governments’ special bonds－mainly meant to s 上海龙凤1314
upport infrastructure projects－had been 65 percent used up by the end of July, the Ministry of Finance said.
Market speculation is that there will be additional bond quota space to bolster fiscal spending in coming months. But a seni 上海龙凤1314女神会所
or official at the Financial Department of the Ministry of Finance said in an interview this week: “It is unlik
上海龙凤1314ely that the government will raise the quota for local government bonds, or for the special bonds.”
Local government special bonds are seen as an important measur
e to support infrastructure investment, and they also are not included in local 上海龙凤1314
budgeted debt. The annual quota was set by the Government Work Report in March.
About 1.55 trillion yuan in local government special bonds had been iss 上海龙凤1314女神会所

China should have an expansionary and much stronger fiscal policy in order to inc 上海龙凤1314
rease public spending and prevent a further slowing of economic growth, said Yu Yo

The fiscal deficit ratio, which may surpass the government target of 2.8 per 上海龙凤1314女神会所
cent of GDP this year, should be compensated by issuing more central government
bonds, said Yu, who also suggested the central bank lower interest rates for the bond issuance.

Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p上海419品茶微信

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

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

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
