China is a highly com上海千花网. In the past, some s

ectors have been a “wild west” where Chinese firms did not hesitate to

copy each other or foreigners. But, as China has developed its own technology and moved u上海千花网品茶微信

p the value chain, protecting intellectual property rights has become a high priority for the government.

上海千花网At the China Development Forum in March, Vice-Premier Han Zheng emphasized: “We w

ill step up our efforts for IPR protection as well as law enforcement in various aspects, and establish a sy上海千花网

stem of punitive punishment for IPR infringement to significantly raise the cost of violating the law.”

上海千花网品茶微信And, President Xi announced that China will strengthen intellectual property rights protectio

n in his April speech to the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation.上海千花网

Also, the removal of the requirement that foreign companies enter in

Financial market reforms

Reform of the financial sector is moving especially rapidly. China will allow full foreign ownershi上海千花网

p of securities firms, futures businesses and life insurance companies by 2020, a year earlier than was s

上海千花网品茶微信cheduled, Premier Li Keqiang told the Summer Davos Forum. Foreign institutions will be offered treatment e

qual to that of domestic companies in credit references, credit ratings and payments, he said.

Li emphasized that this reform is part of a broader push to force domestic上海千花网

firms to upgrade as they face foreign competition. “Further opening to foreign investors, we are no

上海千花网品茶微信t just providing them with opportunities to enter the Chinese market. We are also providing opportu

Measures to boost private sectorThe Chinese government has also recently announced mea上海千花网品茶微信

sures to improve the availability of credit for the private sector and reduce taxes on it.

In a discussion with foreign CEOs at the Summer Davos meeting, Li noted that small and medium-sized companies and private e上海千花网

conomy plowing ahead上海419ite strong headwindsChin

For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig

ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419

ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.

上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove

rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419

This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge

sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow

上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.

But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that

China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi

culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419

For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen

t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef

forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所

uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.

上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an

d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund

amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.

Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所

sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot

上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a

fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.

Later, he visited the Chifeng Museum, where he was briefed on the evolution of loca

Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.

All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled

to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419

Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de

 上海419品茶微信bris expected to fall in a designated secure area in the South Pacific Ocean, it added.

Preparations for reentry are underway, the agency said, saying China will publish related infor

mation or inform relevant parties in a timely manner to fulfill its international obligations. 上海419

Tiangong II was put into orbit in September 2016 atop a Long March 2F carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite La

unch Center in the Gobi Desert. The space lab is 10.4 meters high, 3.35 m in diameter and weighs 8.6 metric tons.

 上海419品茶微信Two astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, entered the lab that October after the

ir Shenzhou XI spacecraft docked with the lab and remained there for 30 days.

From April to September 2017, Tiangong II and Tianzhou I cargo spacecraft performed several docking and in-orbit refuel

ing operations, which demonstrated resupply and refueling technologies for a space station. 上海419

The space lab also carried out a series of scientific and technological experiments.

 上海419品茶微信Its predecessor, Tiangong I, was launched in September 2011 and was mainly used to test technologies involved in space re

Planned deal worth around $2.2 billion seriously violates international law

China said on Friday it will place sanctions on US companies involved in the lates上海419论坛女神会所

t planned military sale to Taiwan, which it said has impaired its sovereignty and national security.

The planned sale worth an estimated $2.2 billion seriously violates international law and b上海419论坛

asic norms of international relations, as well as the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three Chi

na-US joint communiques, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in a statement.

上海419论坛女神会所China made the sanctions decision in order to safeguard its national interests, Geng said.

In a news conference in Beijing, Geng again urged the United States to call off the sale and cut military ties with Taiwan.

The US announced its State Department has approved the sale, the largest since US President Donald Trump took office in Jan上海419论坛女神会所

uary 2017. The announcement came just days before the arrival of Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen to the US.

Tsai arrived in the US on Thursday, Reuters reported, and is spending four nights in th上海419论坛

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China is “gravely concerned” by Tsa上海419论坛女神会所

“Taiwan independence” separatist activities are doomed to fail, and no foreign

intervention is allowed in the Taiwan question, which is purely China’s domestic affair, Wang said in a joint ne

ws conference in Budapest with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Friday.

“No one and no force is able to obstruct the historical process of unifica

A story by the head of the National Endowment for Democracy published in The Washingt

上海后花园品茶微信on Post last Thursday about the horrifying riot on July 5, 2009, was a typical example of this.

In that riot, 197 innocent people were killed and 1,700 more injured. Without showing any sympathy to the dead and injur

Looking at what happens in Xinjiang through such a prism of bias, it is not uncom

The vocational training centers China has organized are meant to equip Uygurs, in partic

ular Uygur youths, with knowledge and skills上海后花园

so that they can land a job to make a decent living, which will hopefully keep them away from contact with extremism.

Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack

上海后花园品茶微信s in more than three years; tourist trips made to Xinjiang from home and abroad reached 150 million last year; its econo

my has grown by 40 percent over the past five years; and the Uygur population has increased from about

9.8 million to over 12 million in over a decade with their religious rights and activities strictly protected by law.

It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信

what it has done and is doing in Xinjiang, want to see this region being plagued by terrorist attacks. It seems as if they consider a

Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.

atellite positioning prot上海夜网ou’s historical bui

The precise satellite positioning program organized in Hangzhou, East China’s Zhejiang provi

nce, targeting 364 historical buildings in the city’s central area, was completed by the city’s hi上海夜网女神会所

storical building protection center recently, Qianjiang Evening News reported.

By comparing and analyzing multiple satellite images, people can get a more comprehensive understanding of the historical buildings.上海夜网

Although image clarity from different satellites has varied, some images sent back have been quite clear

上海夜网女神会所, according to the report. Roof structures, planting conditions and certain decorative objects in the yards can also be observed.

“Except for the rooftops, the surrounding environment and the conditions of the w

hole area also come with a plain view,” said a staff member with the protection center.上海夜网

Currently, the daily supervision of the city’s historical buildings i

上海夜网女神会所s completed mainly through regular human inspections, especially in bad weather.

But now, these checks have been supplemented with precise satellite positioning, which enables remote mo

nitoring of the historical buildings and fills in the inspection blanks in time and space.上海夜网

This program also provides reasonable grounds for protective law enforcement.

上海夜网女神会所”(Previously) when our staff members inspected the protection con

ditions, they may not have been able to enter those buildings. Some of them are enclosed so th上海夜网

ey may look normal from the outside, but may have already been pulled down inside,” said a staff member in charge. “B

上海夜网女神会所ut now they can be inspected through images from the satellite and any destructive behavior will be discovered.”

The historical conditions of these buildings in geographical space can also be reviewed back in time via the satellite imagery ‘

’system, which can provide pictures dating back to the early days after the People’s Republic of China was founded.

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.

Thomas Pritzker began上海千花坊ith the National Cultural

 Heritage Administration and Sichuan University in 1996 and he later published a series of relevant academic papers followi

ng research in the west of Tibet. His son David also nurtured his passion for archaeology during that time.上海千花坊

“One step follows the other, and we’ve kept going,” he sm

上海千花坊品茶微信iles. “We’re still ‘amateurs’, but it’s good to see David turn into a real professional.”

Strategy is helping institutions achieve better rankings at home and abroad

A veteran of such US universities as the University of Chicago and Yale University has become the first foreigner appointed by a Beij上海千花坊

ing university to a management position since the reform and opening-up policy was launched in 1978.

上海千花坊David Zupko was recently appointed deputy director of Tsinghua University’s global cooperation

and communication office after working at different universities in the United States for more than 20 years.

In 2017, when he was asked by the National Cultural Heritage Ad上海千花坊品茶微信

ministration if he would consider exhibiting his family collection in China, he agreed.

His sentiment was echoed by Wang Xudong, the then director of the Dunhuang Academ上海千花坊

y, who spent over a year contacting institutions abroad and around China to contribute to the exhibition.

上海千花坊品茶微信The Pritzker Art Collaborative brought 35 artifacts to the exhibition in Dunhuang. It is joined by key Chin

ese institutions, such as the National Museum of China, the Palace Museum and the Shaanxi History Mus

eum in Xi’an, as well as several other major overseas collections, including the Al Thani Collection owned by the Qatari ru上海千花坊

ling family, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and Hirayama Ikuo Silk Road Museum in Japan.

Abegg-Stiftung, a Swiss collection that mainly features textiles, dropped its “zero l上海千花坊品茶微信

oan policy” for the exhibition, opting in favor of cultural exchange and supplying 16 artifacts to the exhibition.

A hanging brocade with roundel featuring a pair of stags locking horns, on loan from Abegg-Stiftung, is one of the m

ost important exhibits on display. It is believed to have been hung as decoration in the tents of Tubo nobles as a symbol of power.上海千花坊品茶微信

“The Silk Road carries a message for all of us today,” Thomas Pritzker says. “The world will

always have problems … Yet each culture has its own history and values, which are unique.

“If we learn more about another country’s culture, it will be easier to find ways to solve these problems,” he says.

Nevertheless, he also po上海千花坊dies into Tubo cul

Tubo culture are still at an early stage.”We’ve only revealed the tip of the iceberg,” he says. “This exhibition is not so muc

h designed to come up with answers, but rather to raise more questions.”上海千花坊女神会所

From his point of view, further achievements in the field will require more solid support from archaeologists.

上海千花坊Pritzker, 36, who received his PhD from the University of Oxford with a f

ocus on the early textual history of Tibet, first came to the mountains of the Himalayas at

just 4 years old. With his parents, he spent a large part of his childhood living in Nepal.上海千花坊女神会所

For him, this exhibition represents a long-held family dream that has finally come true.

The Pritzker family from Chicago is famed for its achievements in entrepreneurship an上海千花坊

d philanthropy. It funds the Pritzker Architecture Prize, one of the world’s leading architecture awards.

上海千花坊David’s parents Thomas and Margot Pritzker first came to the Hi

malayas in 1975 and soon became “addicted” to the place. Since then, the couple has made frequ

ent treks through the mountain ranges there. They first visited the Tibet autonomous region in 1981.

“When we started, the (ancient) Greek and Roman cultures and Renaissance were really上海千花坊女神会所

well understood in the West, and there was no new ground to be broken,” Thomas Pritzker, 69, tells China Daily.

“But here we discovered a lot of new ground to cover,” he sa

上海千花坊女神会所ys. “Tubo studies were in their infancy then, and we could do things that are really exciting.”

In recent years, studies of the Reshui site, a Tubo graveyard in Dula

n county, Qinghai province, have offered scholars a clearer picture of the communication betw上海千花坊

een Tang and Tubo peoples. Gold plaques unearthed from the site are also on show at the exhibition in Dunhuang, acc

o上海千花坊女神会所rding to Luo Wenhua, a researcher from the Palace Museum in Beijing and also one of the curators of the exhibition.

By comparison, studies of burial sites in Ngari offer a more global perspective through its links with other civilizations outside of China.上海千花坊

“However, these regions are on the frontiers of the Tubo regime,” Luo says. “Details of t

he rulers’ lives still largely remain a mystery due to a lack of archaeological evidence.上海千花坊女神会所

“It’s interesting for David and I to discuss where the exhibits first origin

ated,” he says. “That will trigger a great deal of inspiration for joint studies.”

tral Asian hanging silk br 上海会所xhibitionpair of Cen

A gilded silver wine rhyton in the form of an antelope’s head demonstrate

s the aesthetics of the Sasanian Empire (224-651), located in today’s Iran. A gilded bronze 上海会所

standing Buddha bearing strong Greek influences is believed to have originated in what is currently Kashmir.

 上海会所Six ewers from the period reflect the common influences shared acros

s the different cultures along the Silk Road, and one of them, a 50-centimeter-tall gold

ewer, represents a tasteful blend of their styles. It is believed to have been made by the Sogdian people for a c 上海会所

ustomer looking for a piece that combined Tang, Sasanian and Central Asian influences.

“When you put them side by side, you can see their shared cultural influen

 上海会所品茶微信ces, since they employ similar shapes and images,” Pritzker says. “Patterns similar to the on

es found on the ewers can be seen in some of the silk pieces on display. Some similar images can also be found in Cave 158.

“They are closely related, but this is the first time that they can be seen together,” he adds.

According to Huo Wei, an archaeology professor from Chengdu-based Sichuan Universit 上海会所

y, the rising power of the Tubo regime in the latter half of the 9th century enabled it to build up a huge n

etwork of trade routes connecting it with the rest of China, South Asia and Central Asia. 上海会所品茶微信

“The Tubo people introduced Buddhist art from the Tang regions an

d what was today’s Nepal, along with techniques in craftsmanship for making gold and silver art

 上海会所ifacts from Persia,” Huo explains. “It amassed a huge number of silk pieces through trade, despite the fact that Tubo pe

ople never learned how to make silk, probably due to the restrictions within their natural environment.

“We like to refer to it as the Silk Road on the Plateau,” he explains. “It was an indispensable part of the ancient Silk Road.” 上海会所品茶微信

Pritzker says: “Studies of Tibetan culture around the world have largely been influen
