In addition, Shanghai has expanded its medical health service in
the past decade to nearly 5,300 health institutions scattered across 15 districts.
狗亚APP入口龙凤1314At least one 3A-grade hospital, the highest of China’s three-tier g

“Shanghai has become a medical high-water mark for
the country, and the region is attracting the largest number of patie狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所

“Shanghai’s ability to serve the Yangtze River Delta region

ing gap between increased spending and the slower expansion of income, some local governments, especially at the co
unty level, are facing fiscal pressure. But the central government will transfer more funds to local go?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
vernments to ensure stable fiscal spending and further implement tax and fee cuts, the ministry said.
?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314By the end of July, local governments had issued 2.55 trillion yuan in new b
onds for the year, accounting for 82.8 percent of the annual quota of 3.08 trillion yuan.
A quota of 2.15 trillion yuan for local governments’ special bonds－mainly meant to s?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
upport infrastructure projects－had been 65 percent used up by the end of July, the Ministry of Finance said.
Market speculation is that there will be additional bond quota space to bolster fiscal spending in coming months. But a seni?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
or official at the Financial Department of the Ministry of Finance said in an interview this week: “It is unlik
?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314ely that the government will raise the quota for local government bonds, or for the special bonds.”
Local government special bonds are seen as an important measur
e to support infrastructure investment, and they also are not included in local?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
budgeted debt. The annual quota was set by the Government Work Report in March.
About 1.55 trillion yuan in local government special bonds had been iss?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
ued in the first half, the Ministry of Finance said. The remaining 600 billion yuan
issuance must be finished by September－a State Council requirement to speed financing for key projects.
China should have an expansionary and much stronger fiscal policy in order to inc?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
rease public spending and prevent a further slowing of economic growth, said Yu Yo
ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Yu spoke at a recent forum.
The fiscal deficit ratio, which may surpass the government target of 2.8 per?狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
cent of GDP this year, should be compensated by issuing more central government
bonds, said Yu, who also suggested the central bank lower interest rates for the bond issuance.
aggressive recruitment efforts have been made by UK universities to attract non-European students.
Meanwhile, favorable policies were announced by the UK’s Department for Education狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
, such as allowing international students to stay up to one year after their study visas expire.
狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所According to the 2019 survey conducted by higher education marketing company QS, which covered more
than 75,000 students and 71 universities from around the world, 77 percent of prospective inte狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
rnational students claim that extending the post-study leave period for the UK’s visa offer to one year would incr
狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所ease the likelihood of them studying in the UK. And 54 percent of students stated that feeling welcome as an inte
rnational student is one of the five important factors they consider when choosing a university.
However, Zerzan says the major reason for the UK being one of the fav狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
orite destinations for Chinese overseas students is that British education has a trad
ition of innovation by linking academic foundations with the needs of industry. This helps to instill in its grad狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
uates a need for continuous learning, an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to life as well as
strong practical and relevant skills that are appreciated by employers globally.
Zerzan adds that many foreign universities aim to recruit Ch狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
inese students for short-term financial gains, which might result in a mismatc
h in partners, poorer research output and possible frustrations on both sides.狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
And he also points out that international student mobility is not just about economic funding.
“The environment now is one where there is a mass flow of students狗亚APP入口龙凤1314
and lecturers – a mass flow of knowledge – and the UK has to engage in that so Chinese stud
ents are among the top academic performers and contribute greatly to scholarly ex狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所
change and academic research and development within the UK education sectors,” he says.

rrived in the United States from China. A stone was placed there, engraved with Zhang’s name in both English and Chinese.
For nearly two years, defense lawyers have been preparing their case for Brendt Christensen, a former University of Illi
nois doctoral student who is charged with kidnapping, torturing and killing the 26-year-old scholar from China.
On Wednesday, in the federal courtroom of the central Illinois city of Peoria, a 90-minute drive from the cam
pus, in front of Zhang’s family members, friends, reporters－and 12 jurors－it took defense atto
rney George Tesseff less than one minute to stun the courtroom by saying Christensen had indeed killed Zhang.
The surprise admission was part of the defense attorney’s strategy to focu
s on why his client’s life should be spared when the trial resumes on Monday.
?two female Chi狗亚APP入口龙凤1314女神会所nese climbers: Ma Liyamu from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, and Tsang Yin Hung from Hong Kong.
For Ma and Tsang, it was their second ascent to the summit of Mount Qomolangma, as Ma had reached th
e top of the mountain in 2016, and Tsang conquered it in 2017. But for Sun, this was her first such experience.
“What surprised me when I reached the top was the shadow of Mount Qom
olangma on other mountains. It was simply magnificent and stunning and it was a heavenly experience,” she shared.
Growing up, Sun didn’t have any aspirati
ons to climb Mount Qomolangma, but she loved drawing, especially nature and mountain scenes.
Having worked as a designer, she had some mountaineering exp
erience after climbing Mount Manaslu in September last year. Before she came into contact w
ith Ma, it was not in her mind to form an all-female, all-Chinese team to summit the mountain.
After a disappointing performance in 2018, China’s economy appears to be stabiliz
ing. In the first quarter of 2019, GDP growth, at 6.4 percent year-on-year, matched that of the previous quarter. But grow
th in industrial production exceeded expectations, expanding by 6.5 percent year-on-year (and by 8.5 percent in Mar
ch). Even exports growth was positive, albeit weak, despite the ongoing trade frictions with the United States.
Moreover, fixed-asset investment (FAI) grew by 6.3 percent－0.2 percentage points higher than in the previous quar
ter. Investment in real estate grew the fastest (11.8 percent), followed by manufacturing (4.6 percent) and in
frastructure (4.4 percent). The growth of investment both in real estate and infrastru
cture was stronger not only sequentially, but also year-on-year. As usual, consumption growth was stable.
?Lagos–Kano standard gauge project, the first standard gauge railway in Nigeria and West A
frica, was officially inaugurated and started commercial operation on July 26, 2016.
The railway, constructed by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, is the first overseas railway fully adopting the Chinese r
ailway standard. Spanning 186.5 kilometers, it alleviates traffic tension, improves the investment envir
onment and promotes the coordinated development of regional economy and society.
By Jan 11, the train service had delivered 1.23 million passengers and had safely operated for 900 days without any major accident recorded since its inception.
The China-funded Colombo Port City, the largest project between C

In addition, hydro-structure construction will be completed by the middle
