The government of China’s Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) plans t

ngdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the SAR’s chief executive Chui Sai On has said.
上海千花坊女神会所During a question-and-answer session at the SAR Legislative Assembly Th
ursday, Chui told Macao’s legislative members that there were about 49 projects relating to M
acao’s participation in the Greater Bay Area set out in the outline development plan for the Greater Bay Area.
He said Macao’s basic fiscal reserves and surplus reserves amounted to 569.54 billion patacas (about 70.49 billion U.S. doll上海千花坊女神会所
ars), while there was 163.25 billion patacas (about 20.20 billion U.S. dollars) in foreign exchange reserves at the be
inning of 2019, and the government had the financial capability to establish such a fund.
上海千花坊The fund would be set up in the second half of 2019, and would be manag
ed by a government-owned entity operating independently of the current structure of pub
lic administration. It would be run in accordance with market-led and commercial principles, he added.上海千花坊女神会所
The chief executive said it was not only a way for improving returns on publicly-held capital and for the benefit of public fu
上海千花坊nds, but also for realizing policy goals mentioned in the Greater Bay Area outline development plan.
The Greater Bay Area consists of the Hong Kong SAR, the Macao SAR, as well as nine cities in Guangdong上海千花坊

Companies with bad credit records will receive serious punishment, said Lian Weiliang, deputy head of the National Develo上海龙凤419

The measures for rating companies’ credit are being drafted, and market-oriented third-part上海龙凤419品茶微信

ntering a new era, Shanghai encountered unprecedented opportunities
上海千花坊in domestic garbage treatment, reflected in three later-developing advantages.
(1) Shanghai has the advantage of “overtaking in bends”
上海千花坊女神会所Four first-tier cities across the world established modern garbage classification systems about 50 years ago.
These systems were first carried out from the perspective of the circular economy. Shangh
ai, as a catcher, started to classify and recycle municipal garbage through comprehensive integration.上海千花坊
Today garbage in Shanghai is classified into four categories: harmful; recyclable; organic; and other.
上海千花坊女神会所This integrates waste recycling, composting, incineration and landfills, and has the advantage of overtaking in be
nds. Shanghai for example provides a fixed subsidy for the construction of wet garbage resource facilities.
(2) Shanghai has the advantage of “backward force”上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai’s waste treatment sets the maximum capacity of landfill and incineration fa
上海千花坊cilities, reverses the front-end classification collection and resource utilization, and reduces quantity at the source.
The city encourages classification by disposing
of organic garbage for free and calculating the cost of other garbage disposal.上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai also promotes quality control and both rewards and
上海千花坊punishes district treatment facilities through its garbage treatment fee system.
(3) Shanghai has the advantage of “governance orientation”上海千花坊女神会所
Shanghai residents participate in making waste classification a bottom-up action.
Enterprises strengthen market-oriented changes and fulfill their corporate social responsibility.
s from the treaty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stability of the
world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Treaty is the上海会所
US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US di
上海会所品茶微信spensation assumed office in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and mech
anisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.
Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving bilatera上海会所品茶微信
l relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their fac
上海会所e-off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side
s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the
ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.上海会所
Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma
ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could develo
上海会所品茶微信p new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.
Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d
eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fu上海会所品茶微信
elling an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt ma
jor powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.
What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to dra上海会所品茶微信
g China into the discussions on certain international issues regardless of wh
上海会所ether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving int
ernational relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and ther
efore remains very much relevant and significant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only上海会所 品茶微信
the US’ unilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.

The election to Japan’s upper house on Sunday has acquired added significance because the result would be critical to the ruli
上海419论坛ng Liberal Democratic Party’s attempts to amend the country’s pacifist Constitution.
Constitutional amendment, the amendment to Article 9 in particular, has been a controversial 上海419论坛
issue in Japan since the end of World War II. Article 9 renounces war, and notes that the proh
上海419论坛品茶微信ibition on the use of force by Japan is a clear constitutional rule that the Japanese government has to follow. It also
prohibits the maintenance of armed forces and denies Japan the right of “belligerency”. 上海419论坛
And it is precisely to change Article 9-which would allow Japan to have a regular military and be
come a normal country-that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made constitutional amendment his goal. 上海419论坛
But Abe should realize that amending the Constitution is no small feat beca
上海419论坛品茶微信use for that, the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito has to have a two-thirds ma
jority in both houses of parliament, and then win an absolute majority of votes in a ref
erendum. Several attempts have been made to amend the Constitution, but none has been successful. 上海419论坛
Abe should also know that the ruling LDP’s coalition
上海419论坛品茶微信artner Komeito is a conservative party which is skeptical about amending Article 9.
Differences among political parties, even within o
ne party, have made it almost impossible for the LDP to amend the Constitution. 上海419论坛
For example, there are diverse voices on constitutional amendment within the Abe-led LDP. While some support rev
ising the pacifist Constitution to allow Japan to have a regular military, others say the Japa 上海419论坛品茶微信
n Self-Defense Forces, which has constitutional sanction, should be strengthened to the level of a full-fledged military.
上海419论坛品茶微信The LDP and Nippon Ishin no Kai are in favor of a constitutional amendment. But the Constitutional Democratic Party of J
apan, Democratic Party for the People, and the Japanese Communist Party strongly oppose the idea.
d in incorporating garbage classification into the rule of law.
上海419品茶微信The regulations for example say that people can be fined up to 2,00
0 yuan for mixed garbage and 50,000 yuan for mixed transportation by units.
The regulations also hold that disposable cups and utensils cannot be used in the Shanghai Party internal office and 上海419government organs.
Hotels will no longer provide disposable household necessities or they’ll
上海419品茶微信be fined at least 500 yuan and less than 5,000 yuan. Caterers cannot provide disposable tab
leware – if they do and fail to make corrections within a time limit, they will be fined the same amount. 上海419
Editor’s note: Japan has restricted the exports of three highly specialized products needed to make sem
上海419品茶微信iconductors, smartphones and computers to the Republic of Korea, which could seriously hurt ROK enter
prises such as electronics giants Samsung and SK Hynix. At a meeting of the Council on Trade in Goods of the Wo
rld Trade Organization last week, the ROK criticized Japan’s move, saying it’s unjustified. What will be the impact of the Tokyo-Seoul spat on the regional eco
nomy and stability? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Liu Jianna. Excerpts follow: 上海419品茶微信
Tokyo vents anger against ROK moves
上海419Japan has restricted the exports of the three products to the ROK mainly to vent its anger agai

to work in mines and factories and as “comfort women” before and during World War II, ROK President Moon Jae-in’s 上海419品茶微信
hard-line policy toward Tokyo, and the two countries’ conflicting policies on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
Besides, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants to portray himself as
上海419a strong leader who brooks no nonsense so his ruling Liberal Democratic Party, along with
its coalition partner Komeito, can win two-thirds of the seats in the upper house election on Sunday. To some exte

In an international conference on religious freedom he hosted in Washington
上海千花坊女神会所from Tuesday to Thursday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo again showed how freely his tongue can wag in an ef
fort to portray the United States as a beacon of freedom in a world that he painted as pitch-black.
Alleging that “83 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is either threatened or deni上海千花坊
ed entirely”, the evangelical Christian even helpfully proffered a list of those countries he considers culpable.
上海千花坊女神会所Not surprisingly, given his past lambastings of it, China came in for a tongue-lash
ing with Pompeo asserting it is “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time”.
This is not the first time he has pointed an accusing finger at China’s policies in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. Bu上海千花坊
t this time he took his rhetoric up a notch describing it as “the stain of the century”.
上海千花坊女神会所He might want to look closer to home for that, as the detention centers on the US southe
rn border are more fitting of that description, having been described by some as “concentration camps”.
Even the US president has admitted, “they’re very crowded, in many cases”. 上海千花坊
But Pompeo carefully avoided overstretching his tongue when presenting h
is examples of China’s human rights abuses. He failed to mention that the many illegal religions and s上海千花坊女神会所
ocial organizations in China and elsewhere in the world are funded by his government for its own political purpos
上海千花坊女神会所es; and that many separatist organizations are on the payroll of Washington under the name of freedom fighters.
