It should not come as a surprise that more than 300,000 Hong Kong residents, from all w
alks of life and from different nationalities, participated in a rally convened by over 70 civic leaders on Saturday.上海楼凤品茶微信
That the organizers represented the business sector, student groups, civic organizati
上海楼凤品茶微信ons and police associations shows they’ve had enough of the radical youths, who for weeks have made hea
dlines for resorting to violence supposedly to oppose an amendment to Hong Kong’s extradition law.上海楼凤
These radical youths have attacked police officers, stormed the legislature, and laid sie
ge to the police headquarters, all carried out in illegal and violent fashion, which th
上海楼凤品茶微信e silent majority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region could no longer remain mute spectators to.
This silent majority gathered together with one purpose in mind: to defend the SAR, its residents, its business and its values上海楼凤
by demanding an immediate end to the violence. The message “end divisions, defend Hong Kong” was read out
loud and clear by a young student at the rally held in Hong Kong’s central administrative and business center.
上海楼凤The silent majority of the SAR would have preferred to live a peaceful life and strive to achieve their dreams rather than rack t
heir brains over politics were it not for the danger their city is facing. Hong Kong’s social order and reputation as one of t
he world’s safest cities are not the only things at risk. The rule of law－which H上海楼凤
ong Kong residents cherish most and is crucial for the SAR’s long-term stability and prosperity－is also under threat.上海楼凤品茶微信
The radical elements’ sustained attacks on Hong Kong’s social fabric are a potent threat to the SAR’s上海楼凤品茶微信
social stability and economic prosperity. Not to mention people’s livelihoods and well being.

Thiel is seeking to leverage the annoyance of the US Department of Defense and hawk

Google was targeted with similar accusations in March, when General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta

Google has repeatedly denied any relations with the Chinese government or the Chinese military.
In response to the latest charges, Riva Sciuto, a spokeswoman for Google, said: “As we have said before, we do not work wit上海后花园

It is irresponsible of the US leader to buy into Thiel’s allegations and cast aspersions
on China. Google has little business in China. But, to some extent, Thiel has just given him the excu上海后花园品茶微信

上海后花园The White House has growing concerns about Google’s influence ove

But as shown by the recent controversial tweets against four congresswome上海后花园品茶微信

The baseless charges against China do a disservice to the efforts of those working hard to hammer out the details of a trade deal.

of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, on Wednesday, it was decided t上海419论坛
hat 10 percent of the shares of domestic large-and medium-sized State-owned e
nterprises will be transferred to the social security fund. Beijing News comments:上海419论坛女神会所
State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co
mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.上海419论坛
After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits
as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.
Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel
ied on enterprises and fees paid by individuals plus financial subsidies.上海419论坛女神会所
Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo
wed to get their pensions without ever paying for them, which means the whole society sub上海419论坛女神会所
sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.
Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev上海419论坛
er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this
year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account

The authorities will bring in industrial associations to tighten emissions assess

Those with poor environmental protection records or that scheme to cheat the assessment will be severely punished, he said.
上海千花坊品茶微信Currently, China enforces steel production restrictions in key areas on days forecast to have heavy air pollution, and
roducers with ultra-low carbon emissions are allowed to have lower or no production cuts.
More than 60 steel producers in key areas, with a total crude steel capacity of 260 million上海千花坊
tons, have upgraded to meet ultra-low carbon emission standards, according to Liu.
上海千花坊品茶微信China expects 60 percent (340 million tons) of existing crude steel capacity in key areas
to be made with ultra-low carbon emissions by 2020, according to a ministry guideline released this year.
Li Xinchuang, president of the China Metallurgical Industry Planni

aged to stay afloat thanks to a raft of stimulus measures and a surge in Chinese
demand for commodities, a new report by Deloitte Access Economics said on Monday.上海419品茶微信
While Australia has experienced falls in the real estate market, severe drought, stagnant wage gro
上海419wth and weak consumer spending over the past 18 months, strength in its robust resources sector has not waned.
This, combined with record low interest rates and generous tax breaks that were introduced by t上海419
he newly-elected Morrison government should help keep Australia’s economy on track, Deloitte Ac
cess Economics Partner Chris Richardson said in the firm’s latest Business Outlook for the month of June.上海419品茶微信
“Overall global growth looks set to stay in the slow lane through the rest o
f 2019 and through 2020 as well, though the extent of that slowdown looks to be co
上海419ntained as central banks start to boost their assistance to growth, and as government budgets do the same,” he said.
“Remarkably, despite the global slowdown, the world has given Australia a big pay上海419品茶微信
rise, as China’s stimulus means a surge in the demand for and prices of Australian coal and iron ore.”
上海419Although Australia’s inflation levels remain subdued mainly because of low wage growth, Richardson said the cou
ntry’s central bank is now beginning to change direction when it comes to monetary policy.上海419
“For years the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) thought full employme
nt meant unemployment of “around 5.0 percent,” but now it thinks unemployment can go a lit上海419
tle under 4.5 percent before wages start to party. Australia can go stronger-for-longer before inflation revs up,” he said.
上海419品茶微信”But getting unemployment under 4.5 percent is more than the RBA can do by itself, so official ra
tes are headed to 0.75 percent or 0.5 percent pretty fast, and things get more complicated after that.”
“We may be in for a phase in which Australia joins much of the world in having interest rates very low for some time. Th上海419品茶微信
at change of tack by the RBA is keeping the Australian dollar under control despite sky-high commodity prices.”
