Majid Takht-e Ravanchi, Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, said Iran ha

Trump’s initial comments on the attack were succinct, declaring on social media that “Iran made a very big mistake!”

But he also suggested that shooting down the drone — which has a wing

span wider than a Boeing 737 — was a foolish error rather than an intentional escalation, sugg

esting he may have been looking for some way to avoid a crisis. “I find it hard to believe it was intentional, if you want to k

now the truth. I think that it could have been somebody who was loose and stupid that did it.”

But the deleveraging process should continue, and more measures will be introduced to ease the debt burden, especially

for the private sector, said Lian Weiliang, deputy head of the National Development and Reform Commission.

One of the key measures is to further promote the debt-to-equity s

wap program, to inject more social funds into indebted companies through holding the co

mpanies’ shares, the NDRC official said. “We will choose more qualified private companies to join this program.”

By the end of April, the total value of debt-to-equity swap reached 2.3 trillion yuan ($332.8

billion). More than 20 percent was for the centra上海品茶微信女神会所l State-owned enterprises, inclu

To achieve the government target of bringing down the

the percentage of adult smokers to 20 percent by 2030, we have a lot of work to do,” he said.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba

cco industry, which is one of the biggest tax contributors to the government, he said.

Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,

national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.

“Only a few big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen h

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satellite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China Meteo

rological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

For example, in March, China provided a remote-sensing monitor repo

rt on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and ter

rain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun serie

s of meteorological satellites as a major element of its global Earth observation system.

es it a large exporter of manufactured goods to the US and

Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumption in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of eco

nomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a situa

tion, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.

To make up for the increasing savings gap, the US needs to introduce and use more foreign ca

pital, which will further enlarge the trade deficit. Therefore, the US cannot simultaneously maintain a high g

rowth rate, invest massively in infrastructure, reduce the trade deficit and restrict the inflow of foreign capital.

What is really questionable is that, despite its contempt for over-regulation of the economy, the US administration has been tryi

ng to impose regulations on international trade, even for its trade partners’ domestic economic management.

The integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta re

gion must focus on the key elements of greater integration and high-quality developmen

t to lead the growth of the whole Yangtze River Economic Belt and East China, the statement said.

The meeting called for better awareness of integrated development and putting the region’s growt

h into the perspective of a unified strategy, as well as the development of a modern economic system.

It also required adequate coordination and implementation to ensure the effective implementation of various tasks in the plan.

The delta region, including Shanghai and Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui provinces, is among the areas with the most robust econ

omic growth, the highest level of opening-up and the strongest capacities in innovation in China.

The total GDP of the delta region reached 21 trillion yuan ($3.06 trillion) in 2018, which

accounted for around one-fourth of the national total, according to Economic Daily.

Compadrazgo, a Spanish word that literally translates to

co-fatherhood”, is based on a kinship ritual that is formed after a child gets baptized into the Roman Catholic faith.

For the predominantly Catholic and close-knit Philippine society, the go

dfather (known as the padrino) is part of one’s extended family and is expected to h

elp and protect his godchild. The godchild is expected to respect and be loyal to the padrino.

Bapakism is derived from the Indonesian word for “father”. When used

in Indonesian business, bapakism demands great respect and obedience to one’s supe

rior. The manager in his role as the company’s bapak is expected to look after and care for his employees.

Although Asian values are steeped in an ancient culture and tradition, it was

only in the 1990s that this concept drew global attention. This was partly due to Asian lead

ers like the late Singaporean prime minister Lee Kuan Yew’s and current Malaysian Pri

They cited a report in February from Trade Partnership World

wide as saying that increasing tariffs on $200 billion of goods to 25 percent, coupled with tariffs already in place — as well as expect

ed Chinese retaliation — would reduce US employment by more than 934,000 jobs and push down the US GDP by 0.37 percent.

According to data from the General Administration of Customs, two-way trade between China and

the US declined 11.2 percent year-on-year to 1.1 trillion yuan ($162.5 billion) in the period from January to April.

The fact that Beijing is still sending a delegation to the US for the trade talks is “very wise on China’s part”, said Gary Hufb

auer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington.

Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for Internat

ional Peace, said it “makes sense to continue the talks because the alternative would be a drastic signal to markets”.

As landmarks of the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019 Beijing China, the China Pavilion and the Inter

national Pavilion are attracting large numbers of visitors thanks to their unique designs and functions.

Covering an area of 5 square kilometers, the expo is being held in the capital’s Yanqing district.

Following the ancient wisdom of the Chinese people, the China Pavilion takes the shape of a green b

uilding that can “breathe” and has “life”, as described on the exhibition’s official website.

Core portions of the pavilion are composed of terraced fields. Fun

ctions of both irrigation and insulation are at play, and th

e fields help reduce energy consumption of the building while also offering heating or cooling functions.
