China has issued an action plan on the prevention and treatm
ent of pneumoconiosis, vowing to fulfill the plan’s targets by the end of 2020.上海419品茶微信
Pneumoconiosis, a class of lung diseases where inhalation of dust causes interstitial fibrosis, accounts for nearly 90 perce
上海419nt of all occupational disease cases in the country, said Li Bin, deputy head of China’s National Health Commiss
ion (NHC), adding that the action plan aims to reduce the number of new pneumoconiosis patients.上海419
The action plan pledges that by the end of 2020, authorities
must grasp the dust hazards situation of related employers and the employe
上海419品茶微信rs’ reporting of the health of occupational pneumoconiosis patients to supervisors.
Marked progress will be made in the rectification and control of dust hazards in industries including c

The action plan was jointly formulated by 10 departments including the NHC, the National Healthc上海419品茶微信

City has ‘good conditions’ for hosting negotiations, ministry spokesman says
上海419Top negotiators from China and the United States will meet in Shan
ghai on Tuesday and Wednesday for the first time since President Xi Jinping and his US coun
terpart Donald Trump agreed in June to resume economic and trade consultations. 上海419女神会所
Analysts said that holding the 12th round of talks in Shanghai, the c
上海419ountry’s financial hub, will help the US have a more direct understanding of China — a nation
that is determined to further open up. Previously, the trade talks in China took place in Beijing.
Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng said that holding the negotiations in different plac 上海419女神会所
es is not unusual. “Shanghai has good conditions for conducting consultations,” Gao said. 上海419
The meeting is expected to implement the consensus reached between the top leaders of both
上海419女神会所countries at the G20 Summit in Japan last month, Gao said at a regular news conference.
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Tr
上海419ade Representative Robert Lighthizer will meet wi

Ni Yueju, a researcher at the Institute of World Econo

上海419ial Sciences, said Shanghai remains at the forefront of the country’s opening-up.
“The choice to hold the next round of trade talks in Shanghai demonstrates Chi
na’s determination to further open up the economy,” Ni said, adding that the cou 上海419女神会所

“The planned negotiations will mainly cover issues th
上海419at have not yet been resolved, for example, whether the US will lift tariffs o
n Chinese products and remove Chinese companies from a blacklist,” Ni said.
The US placed several Chinese companies, like t 上海419女神会所

上海419″In the upcoming talks, the two sides may also discuss whe

If both sides can negotiate on the basis of sincerity and equality, they may achi
eve some breakthroughs in addressing the aforementioned issues, Ni added.
The State Council Information Office on Sunday issued a white paper
上海419on historical matters concerning Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China.
China is a unified multiethnic country, and the various ethnic group上海419
s in Xinjiang have long been part of the Chinese nation. Throughout its long history, X
上海419injiang’s development has been closely related to that of China, the white paper said.
However, in more recent times, hostile forces in and outside China, especially se
paratists, religious extremists and terrorists, have tried to split China and bre上海419品茶微信
ak it apart by distorting history and facts, the document, titled “Historical Matters Concerning Xinjiang”, said.
上海419Xinjiang has long been an inseparable part of Chinese territory. Never has it bee
n the so-called “East Turkistan.” The Uygur ethnic group came into being throug上海419品茶微信
h a long process of migration and integration, the white paper said, adding that it is part of the Chinese nation.
In Xinjiang, different cultures and religions coexist, and ethnic cultures have been fostered and developed in the embrac上海419
e of the Chinese civilization. Islam is neither an indigenous nor the sole belief system of the Uygur people. It has ta
ken root in the Chinese culture and developed soundly in China, the document said.上海419品茶微信
The surge in religious extremism around the world has caused a rise in religious extremis
上海419m in Xinjiang and has resulted in an increasing number of incidents of terror and violence, it noted.
“Xinjiang’s fight against terrorism and extremism is a battle for justice and civilization
against evil and barbaric forces. As such it deserves support, respect and understanding,” it said.上海419品茶微信
The document said that some countries, organizations and individual
上海419s that apply double standards to terrorism and human rights have issued unjustified
criticism of Xinjiang’s effort. This kind of criticism betrays the basic conscience and j上海419品茶微信
ustice of humanity, and will be repudiated by all genuine champions of justice and progress, it said.
Washington’s countervailing measures on Chinese imports violate body’s laws
The United States has challenged the authority of the World Trade Organization by ignoring a上海419
WTO ruling, and such a move may escalate trade tension with China, experts said on Wednesday.
上海419品茶微信The WTO announced on Tuesday that the revised countervailing measures imposed by t
he US on imports of certain products from China were inconsistent with WTO laws.
However, the US failed to comply with the WTO ruling and上海419
accused China of “using State-owned enterprises to subsidize its economy”.
上海419The WTO mechanism is what members use to settle trade disputes, and countries in most cases abide by the rulings made by th
e organization, said Xue Rongjiu, deputy director of the China Society for WTO Studies.上海419品茶微信
“If member economies don’t follow this procedure, the rule-based global multilateral system
will be damaged and threatened by protectionism,” Xue said, adding that under such circumstances, some
上海419members may be forced to also use trade as a geopolitical weapon to ensure their interests.
Upholding the findings of a WTO dispute panel made public in March 2018, a WTO appellate body ruled that the US acted inc
onsistently with its provisions of subsidies and countervailing measures agreement.上海419品茶微信
The Ministry of Commerce urged the US to take immediate and concrete
action to “correct the wrong practices” in the anti-subsidy investigation against China and to c
上海419reate a fair and stable international trading environment for companies from both countries.
“Although both the panel of experts and the appellate body in this case
have ruled that the US countervailing measures violate WTO rules and asked the US to c上海419品茶微信
orrect its action, the US didn’t comply with the WTO ruling and continued to adopt tra上海419
de remedy measures against Chinese products in recent years,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

上海419″According to expert data, as a result of these restrictions, Russia lost about 50 billion US dollars since 2014, while the European Unio
n lost 240 billion dollars, the United States, 17 billion dollars, and Japan 27 billion dollars,” Putin said.
He said the losses were reflected in a reduction in the number of jo上海419品茶微信

Last year, China’s per-capita gross national income (GNI) hit $9,732, higher than that of middle income countries, according to a report released by the National Bureau of Statistics Monday.上海419
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Over the past seven decades, China’s national economy maintained rapid growth, with a tangible rise in its economic aggregate, the report said.
The report, which elaborates economic and social development achievement since the founding of New China 70 years ago, show
ed China’s GDP was 67.9 billion yuan in 1952, with per-capita GDP of 119 yuan. In 1978, C上海419品茶微信
hina’s GDP rose to 367.9 billion yuan, accounting for 1.8 percent of the global economy and ranking No 11 in the world.
Since the country began to implement reform and opening-up in 1978, China’s economy has maintained rapid growth. Its econo
mic aggregate surpassed 1 trillion yuan in 1986 and 10 trillion yuan in 2000, becoming the sixth-largest economy in the world上海419
. In 2010, China’s economic aggregate was 41.21 trillion yuan, overtaking Japan to become the second-largest economy.
上海419Over the past three years, China’s economic aggregate has topped 70 trillion yuan, 80 trillion yuan and 90 trillion yuan, respectively. Last year, Ch
ina’s economic aggregate reached 90.03 trillion yuan, accounting for nearly 16 percent of the global economy, while its
per-capita GNI reached $9,732, higher than the average level of middle income countries.上海419品茶微信
China’s financial strength has also improved greatly, with big increase in fore
ign reserves. In 1950, China’s fiscal revenue was only 6.2 billion yuan, and the figure rose to 113.2 billion yuan in 1978.上海419品茶微信
Since the country began its reform and opening-up, China has seen a surge in fiscal revenue. In 1999, China’s national fis
cal revenue exceeded 1 trillion yuan for the first time, and reached 11.72 trillion yuan in 2012, and 18.34 trillion yuan in 2
018. Between 1951 and 2018, China registered an average annual growth of 12.5 percent in fiscal revenue, providing st
rong capital guarantee to promote economic development and improve people’s livelihood.
Since the reform and opening-up, China’s foreign exchange reserves have show
ed stable growth. As of 1978, the figure stood at $167 million, ranked 38th in the world. By
the end of 2006, China’s foreign reserves surpassed $1 trillion and become the world’s largest. The figure w
as $3.07 trillion as of the end of last year, ranking at the top worldwide for 13 consecutive years.
Industrial structure continued optimization and upgrade over the past 70 yea
rs. At the early stage of the founding of the country, China’s agricultural production has weak bases, wit
h lower grain output. Since the reform and opening-up, the agricultural economy witnessed rapid development. In
2012, China’s total grain output rose to 612.23 million tons from 304.77 million tons in 1978, while the total output value of ag
riculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery increased to 8.63 trillion yuan from 139.7 billion yuan.
University, said, “Although the DMZ meeting has created significant momentum that will help restart a change on the Korean Peninsula, as sanctions will remain in place, chances are
上海419品茶微信not high that the meeting will lead to a major change in the short-term trajectory of denuclearizing the peninsula.”
One of the most encouraging signs that emerged from the meeting between President Xi Jinpi
ng and US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka on Saturday was the s 上海419
oftening of Trump’s stance on the sanctions the US administration had imposed on Chinese telecommunications equi
pment provider Huawei. Trump said US companies can continue selling telecom components to Huawei. 上海419
If US companies indeed continue selling telecom components to Huawei, it will come as a big relief to the world at a time when th
e international community fears the “technology decoupling” of world’s largest and second-largest economies could u 上海419品茶微信
ndermine global technological development, especially the commercialization of 5G technology, in which Huawei is a leading global player.
Previously the US administration was reportedly mulling banning 5G telecom equipment designed and manufactured in China, includin 上海419
g those made by multinational companies such as Ericsson and Nokia, from the US market.
The fact is, as a global leader in 5G, Hu
上海419品茶微信awei is too big to fail. After the US administration banned American companies from selling chips to Huawei an
d other Chinese companies, Silicon Valley has suffered as much, if not more than, Huawei. Besides, some companies co
ntinued to supply chips to Huawei via their overseas branches in order to avoid violating the US ban. 上海419品茶微信
Hopefully, the Xi-Trump meeting and the likely resumption of trade talks between China and the U
S will prompt Washington to adopt a consistent and the right approach toward Chinese high-tech co
mpanies, not least because China tends to treat all companies, domestic as well as foreign, equally. 上海419品茶微信
For example, with research and development centers and manufacturing bases in China, Er
icsson and Nokia have won big contracts in the just launched bid for 5G network devices. These companies hav
e been supplying to markets and serving telecom operators and enterprises across the globe, by capi
talizing on China’s skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure and complete industrial chain.
Yet, if the US does not lift the ban, such companies would have to endure higher production co
sts. They could even be forced to transfer their businesses out of China, although both Ericsson and Nokia cl
aim they can operate production bases in other countries despite the higher costs, due to the flexible supply chain.
An increasing number of small and medium-sized enterprises are stepping outside of
上海419女神会所their own countries and regions to reach global markets with the help of an imp
ortant annual fair in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Guangdong province.
The China International SME Fair – which has focused on establishing a platfor上海419
m for displays of transactions, exchanges and cooperation among SMEs around the world since 2004 – will be
held from Oct 10-13 in Poly World Trade Expo Center this year, according to the event’s organizer.
SMEs take a bow at globally important Guangzhou fair
“We have designed a series of activities to bring substantial benefits and business opportuni上海419女神会所
ties to international SME exhibitors, so that they can better participate in the industri
al and economic chains of the world,” said He Zuoxian, deputy director-general of the Guan
gdong SME Bureau and director-general of the China International SME Fair Bureau上海419.
He, speaking at a media briefing on Tuesday, said activities at the fair would i上海419
nclude cross-border business matchmaking events, a promotional tour along the Belt and Road countries and regions, investment and funds sourcing promotions especially for overseas delegations, as well as procurement meetings.
上海419女神会所So far, delegations from 28 countries, regions and international organizations have confirmed they are attending, with reservations for almost 1,100 stands – accounting for about 45 percent of all booths at the October fair, according to the organizer.
The United Arab Emirates is the co-host country of the fair for the first time, said He, bringing the total number of foreign co-hosts to 18 since the show was launched.上海419女神会所
The UAE delegation will comprise some 75 SMEs from a broad range of sectors: agriproducts, trade and retail, innovation, technology, hospitality, industries and manufacturing. These will cover a total exhibition area of 800 square meters, said Rahma Alshamsi, UAE consul general in Guangzhou.
A number of countries – including Bulgaria, Mexico, Brazil, the Philippines, Laos and Myanmar – have shown great interest in co-hosting the fair in the future and will hold talks with the organizers during the event, He said.
Meanwhile, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, which co-hosted the fair last year, has agreed to take the role for the next five years starting from this year. He said the move would give impetus to the consistent development of SMEs across the globe.
Zhang Linhe, head of the business unit in the Ofice of Japan External Organization in Gua
ngzhou, told the briefing that 29 companies from a variety of industries – including food, beauty products, fashion and
metalware – would join the Japanese delegation. Zhang said 17 of these are new to the event.
