?亚博yabo平台夜网ilateralism as well as the free trade system in order to repair the broken global

Barry became a hurricane as it was making its final approach toward the Gulf Coa
st onto the southern US state of Louisiana on Saturday morning, according to the NHC.?亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所
Barry is expected to bring dangerous storm surge and heavy rains across the north-central Gulf Coast foll
?亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所owing its landfall, mainly due to its slow movement toward the inland region. Residents in the
affected regions who had not been put under voluntary or mandatory evacuation were told to take shelter.?亚博yabo平台夜网
Local governments and residents have geared up for the hurricane. N
ew Orleans and Baton Rouge, the capital city of Louisiana, are among the cities at high risk?亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所
of flooding. Mississippi River is forecast to crest at 19 feet (about 5.8 meters) in New Orleans on Saturday.
In New Orleans, voluntary evacuations have been issued for areas which are not protected by levees.?亚博yabo平台夜网
Both US states of Louisiana and Mississippi have declared state of emergency in advance of Barry’s arrival.
?for insurance companies in the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, with transportation as a top priority.
亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所”Insurance capital can help the government to boost domestic consumption. A co
mprehensive transportation network connecting railway, subway, ports and even airports has亚博yabo平台夜网
been a longstanding goal of many cities in this area. This is where insurers can play a big role,” he said.
Elderly care is another sector where insurance companies can find big opportunities, said Ko
ng. In early June, CPIC opened an elderly care community in Hangzhou, and is about to launch a new one in Nanjing.亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所
“The idea is to let the senior citizens in Shanghai enjoy quality elderly care services in other parts of the Yangtze River Delta region. Mor
e room in Shanghai can thus be given to ambitious young entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses,” he said.
The integration of risk prevention schemes for peasants in the Y
angtze River Delta region is one more area where insurers can focus on, said Kong.亚博yabo平台夜网
Peasants’ income can be largely increased via products such
as cost insurance, yield insurance, income insurance or one-stop insurance service.
He Haifeng, director of the Institute of Financial Policy, which is a part of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the int亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所
egrated development of the delta region presents many latent challenges. So, more efforts should be made to r
eform finance and tax areas, to reduce fees in various fields, and improve the overall business environment.
Work on a new film based on a script by novelist Liu Cixin, the first Asian ever to win a global sci-fi literature’s top honor Hugo Award, has just begun.亚博yabo平台夜网女神会所
The movie called?Mo?Ri Zheng Jiu?(The Rescue on the Last Day) will star award-winning Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung Ka-f
ai and veteran actor Hu Jun, best known for the first Sino-Kazakh coproduction?The Composer.
Director Shen Yue says that Liu wrote the script before he started to write?The Three-Bod
y Problem, which won the Hugo Award for Best Novel in August 2015. The book was first published in 2006.
Zhu Jin, the curator of Beijing Planetarium, will be the film’s chief science consultant.
icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio
s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so
urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.
But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th
ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc
ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.
There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e
nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn
ectivity are crucial. In this regard, the rapid expansion of cellular wireless technology, combined with the install
ation of high-capacity undersea broadband pipes around Africa, represents major prog
mote the reform and opening-up. There are many things in the pipeline for foreign direct i
nvestment. The government plans to allow many companies in different kinds of sectors. In this
upcoming session, the new law regarding foreign direct investment will be discussed. I believe more Sudanese co
mpanies will be allowed to come to China and more Chinese companies will go to Sudan.
I noticed many important things mentioned in today’s report. It talk
s about employment, the protection of the environment, the opening-up of the Chin
ese economy and external trade, which are very impressive. As an ambassador, I wish success to the Chin
ese government in the coming year and I’d like to see more Chinese investors invest in Tunisia.
When it comes to the opening-up of the financial sector, the bond mark
et, the development of multi-tier capital market, the continued emphasis on controlling lev
erage, I think those are some of the issues that we are very interested in. And we are going to study the report.
We haven’t seen the final version of the Foreign Investment Law yet. We
will look at it. But further opening up, especially related to service sector, is very imp
ortant. I think it will bring big benefits for China and big benefits to all the countries in the world.
