When US President Don上海千花网p assumed office in Jan

anuary 2017, he pledged GDP growth at 4 percent. More recently, he projected

上海千花网女神会所US growth at 3 percent. Yet analysts estimate US growth this year at 2.5 percent or less. Quali

tative assessments suggest deterioration, as the growth of domestic demand is slumping.

Worse, US GDP growth forecasts for 2020 indicate softening to 1.8 per上海千花网

cent, possibly a (near-recession) slowdown-especially if trade and tech wars still

escalate. In the absence of negative surprises, China’s GDP growth is lik

上海千花网ely to stay within the target of 6.2 percent in 2019 and possibly in 2020 as well, with

supportive fiscal and monetary conditions. US tariff wars are likely to penalize the Chinese economy by less

上海千花网女神会所than 0.5 percent of GDP, which could be offset by just a modest depreciation of the renminbi.

If recent policy mistakes in the White House prevail, slower growth in i

nvestment spending, rising concern for continued trade wars and destabilizing geopolitics are likely to foster downside上海千花网

risks in global economic prospects, as risks for further downgrades morph into actual realities.

Key indexes decline as US threat to impose tariffs rattles global investors上海千花网

China’s A-share market, together with other Asian peers, tumbled on Friday, after the

unexpected tariff threat from the United States overnight rattled investors globally.

上海千花网女神会所The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index fell by 1.41 percent to close at 2867.84 poi

nts, while the smaller Shenzhen Component Index ended 1.42 percent lower at 9136.46 points.

More than 3,000 shares, or 85 percent of the shares listed on mainland bourses in total, registered losses on上海千花网

Friday, with brokerages, energy equipment manufacturers and the shipping sector leading the fall.

上海千花网女神会所Low investor sentiment was witnessed in other Asian bourses on Friday, with Hong Kong’s Hang Seng, Japan’s Nikkei a

nd South Korea’s Kospi losing 2.35 percent, 2.11 percent and 0.95 percent, respectively.

He said that efforts to p上海千花网air and soil are reco

gnized as the top three missions for environmental protection work. “What we need to do is not only to reduce pollutio

上海千花网but to improve the mechanism to better secure environmental protection work in the future.”

In April 2018, Fujian launched the nation’s first eco-cloud platform, w

here the government can manage data in real-time on air, water and soil in the p上海千花网品茶微信

上海千花网Before 2016, Fu Xin had never thought of working in the Tibet autonomous region.

The area in southwestern China is not only far away from his hometown of Shanghai, but the situation was further compou

nded by Fu’s f上海千花网amily situation. His mother was recovering from lung cancer surgery, his mother-in-law breast cancer t

上海千花网品茶微信reatment, and his young daughter needed the care and love of both her parents.

Fu, then aged 36, was a deputy principal of the high school attached to Shanghai Normal University. The

re seemed little could lure him away. But Fu said when he was dispatched by the Shanghai Muni

cipal Education Commission to Tibet in 2016 to aid local education, there was little to hold him back.上海千花网品茶微信

“I wanted to help children in the less-developed Tibet region to access the same quality education

上海千花网resources as those living in other areas of the country,” Fu said. “It’s my duty as an educator.

“I am so grateful that my family is supportive, especially my w

ife, who told me to take it easy as she would take good care of the whole family.”上海千花网品茶微信

For three years, Fu worked as deputy director of the Shigatse City

上海千花网Education Bureau and principal of the Shanghai Experimental School there.

Every year since he arrived, he has led a group of 40 teachers from Shanghai who come to support Tibet’s education. They stay year-r

ound and only return home for family visits during the Spring Festival, which normally falls in February.上海千花网

So far, their efforts have paid off.

上海千花网品茶微信The performance of students at schools the team has helped has impro

ved markedly. For two consecutive years, all senior high students have been accepted to fi

rst-and second-tier universities, compared with a level of around 80 percent three years ago.上海千花网

The number of students passing the junior high school entrance exam has nearly doubled.

According to Fu, the education environment in Tibet has been improving in recent decades due to government efforts.

上海千花网品茶微信”Basic education facilities have been established, including canteens, dor

ms, labs and classrooms,” he said. “But the toughest part to tackle was the lack of edu

cation resources, school culture and modern teaching methods for a holistic education.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took to Twitter to express his horror. “It’s so dre

adful that I’m lost for words,” he wrote. “I pray for those who passed away.”

 上海千花网品茶微信The fire department said it began receiving calls about the fire around 10:3

am. The blaze started in the three-story building in Japan’s ancient capital after the

suspect sprayed an unidentified liquid accelerant, Kyoto prefectural police and fire officials said. 上海千花网

Kyoto Animation’s president, Hideaki Hatta, told reporters “there have been emails with death threats”, without givin

 上海千花网品茶微信g further details. He said the gutted building was “the core of the company”, which has produced several well-known t

elevision anime series including The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and K-ON!

In China, Kyoto Animation’s Doraemon and Crayon Shin-chan series are well known. 上海千花网

“It’s unbearable that those who have led Japan’s animation industry were hurt and lost their lives,” Hatta said.

 上海千花网品茶微信A witness who saw the suspect being approached by police told Japanese netw

orks that the man admitted spreading gasoline and setting a fire with a ligh

ter. She told NHK public television that the man had burns on his arms and legs and that he was angrily complaining tha 上海千花网

t something of his had been “stolen”, possibly by the company. NHK footage also sh

owed sharp knives police had found at the scene, though it was not clear if they belonged to the suspect. 上海千花网品茶微信

Survivors said the attacker was not their colleague

and that he was screaming “(You) die!” when he dumped the liquid and star 上海千花网

ted the fire, according to Japanese media reports. They said some survivors were splashed with the liquid.

Kyoto Animation, better known as KyoAni, was founded in 1981 上海千花网品茶微信

as an animation and comic book production studio, and its hits include Lucky Star. Th

e company does not have a major presence outside Japan, though it was hired fo

r secondary animation work on a 1998 Pokemon feature and a Winnie the Pooh video seen abroad.

Yet the differences can上海千花网he points where th

Chinese and Western elements and values can find common ground. A good example being the part in the trailer where the matchmaker describes the qu

alities that make for a good wife, namely a woman being “quiet, composed, graceful, disciplined”. This is said with M上海千花网品茶微信

ulan appearing in two images. One has her dressing as a woman, the other with her practicing sword. Obviously Disney de

上海千花网scribed Mulan as a warrior, an independent female who can save herself instead of waiting for someone to save her.

That’s a good point where Chinese and Western values are similar because gender equality and female independence are上海千花网

now valued in both cultures. It will strike a chord with both Chinese and Western audiences.

上海千花网品茶微信But whatever styles her clothes and makeup follow, Mulan is a Chinese legendary heroine and she embodies the virtues of Chinese wo

men. Disney’s Mulan should also prompt the Chinese movie industry to make better use of Chinese stories. Chinese scriptwriters an

d directors can well tell stories about Chinese ancient heroes to the world, instead of waiting for Disney or H上海千花网

ollywood to tell them. Good stories move audiences of the whole world because their hearts are interconnected.

Policies to enhan上海千花网ce entrepreneurship, employment and consumption are encouraging people to spend

上海千花网品茶微信Consumption will continue to be the strongest driver of China’s economic growth

and the country’s regulators are looking at ways to further liberalize its potential.

Immediately after the three-day Dragon Boat Festival at the beginning of June, during which, according to China’s Ministry of C上海千花网

ulture and Tourism, Chinese tourists spent 39.3 billion yuan ($5.72 billion) on domestic travel, the country’s sav

上海千花网品茶微信vy internet users were busy arranging their shopping carts for the online sales day on June 18.

“It is the best time to stock up on those daily necessities of life for the whole year,” said Hong X

in, a 28-year-old office worker in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, who had her eye set on a toilet paper and

上海千花网品茶微信washing liquid value deal on Tmall, one of the country’s biggest e-commerce platforms.

She said the sales day was not just about saving money, but also about en

joying better products. “For example, wet toilet tissue is quite expensive if you buy it in

the supermarket one pack at a time, but it is much more affordable during the sales day if you buy in bulk,” she said.上海千花网

Consumers like Hong, who have a strong willingness to spend to make their lives easier, are adding

impetus to national consumption, which achieved an eye-catching performance in the first quarter of上海千花网品茶微信

2019, according to Nielsen, the New York-headquartered information, data and measurement company.

Nielsen’s report said that in the first quarter, China’s consumer trend index, which measures perceptions of local job pr

ospects, personal finance and willingness to spend, was close to a historical high.
