The economy slowed上海419y in July. The National

Bureau of Statistics indicated the infrastructure investment growth rate, year-to-y

ear, retreated to 3.8 percent in the first seven months, compared with 4.1 percent in the first six months.上海419品茶微信

Economists have said they think the policy stance likely will be loosened again in Augus

上海419t to support economic growth. As a result, growth is expected to be stronger in the next two months.

“In the current environment, we believe economic growth is likely to be strong only when there is clear policy support, like

in the first quarter and in June,” said Song Yu, chief China economist at Beijing Gao Hua Securities.上海419品茶微信

Goldman Sachs research showed on Friday that by the end of June, the official general government sp

上海419ending balance recorded a deficit of 1.6 percent of GDP, the largest half-year deficit since 2011. The gr

eater than expected half-year deficit is from the combined effects of tax and fee cuts and more public spending.

Despite some fiscal challenges and rising debt levels, the government will continue to step up fiscal suppo上海419

rt, as needed, to ensure the economy doesn’t slow more than policymakers can tolerate in the near

term, said Wang Shengzu, co-head of Investment Strategy Group Asia at Goldman Sachs.上海419品茶微信

encent Holdings Ltd following the release of the company’s second quarter earnings.上海419品茶微信

Shares of the Hong Kong-listed fell 2.82 percent, or HK$9.6 ($1.22), to settle on Thursday at

HK$330.4, after it reported its core gaming business rebounded in the three months ending in June.

Net profit jumped 35 percent year-on-year to 24.14 billion yuan ($3.4 billion) in the t上海419

hree months to June, while revenue rose 21 percent to 88.8 billion yuan in the same period.

The company experienced a slowdown in the online advertising sec上海419

tor. The segment accounts for 18 percent of Tencent’s overall revenue.

“Our assumption is that the macro environment will remain difficult for the rest of the year and that the situation of the上海419品茶微信

heavy supply of advertising inventory will continue for the rest of the year and potentially into next y

ear,” Tencent Chief Strategy Officer James Mitchell said in an earnings call late on Wednesday.

Days before that, the c上海4195G unstaffed smar

bookstore opened in Xiong’an New Area, Hebei province. Driven by the adv

antages of 5G networking, book lovers can enter after having their face or their identity c上海419品茶微信

ard scanned, and obtain their favorite books any time, because technology has made 24-hour unstaffed service feasible.

上海419In Sanlitun, the heart of Beijing’s nightlife hub, at 11 pm on a sum

mer night, among the bustling crowds one store stands out. It is Sanlian Taofen Sa

nlitun Bookstore, a 24-hour bookstore that has become a landmark since it opened last year.上海419

The shop used to be a bar in a street reputed for its late-night carousing.

上海419品茶微信The night China Daily visited the shop, and alley that connects the north

ern and southern ends of Sanlitun Village was teeming with people, while in the 700-squ

are-meter bookstore with about 20,000 books, a couple of young people were sitting next to their laptops open.上海419

“We come here quite often,” says one of them, who lives nearby. “It’s th

e place I use most for finishing work each day. This is the only quiet place I can find arou

上海419品茶微信nd here where I do not need to worry about closing time, and you have the air conditioning in summer, too.”

Another of those in the shop, Zhao Xiaohan of Xiamen, Fujian province, who was on holi

day in Beijing, says: “I accidentally found this place while I was looking for a perch after a long day of trave上海419品茶微信

l. It’s a relaxing place, but many young people come in here after dinner time because it’s the summer holidays.”

上海419In addition to stocking the latest titles and best-sellers, Sanlian Taofen sells books in ancien

t Chinese and many works in English. To attract customers in an area that is popular with tourists it al

so sells souvenirs and ornaments representative of traditional Chinese culture.上海419品茶微信

Another tourist in the shop, who says she is from Moscow, was astounded by the shop’s ran

上海419ge of offerings. “I’ve never seen a bookstore like this. It’s got everything related to books you could ever want. Befo

re I came in I wasn’t even sure it was still open. I’ve never come across anything like this in Russia.”

A shop assistant says the design of the shop, on two floors, is inspired by Travelers a上海419品茶微信

mong Mountains and Streams, an ink-wash painting by Fan Kuan of the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127).

Zhu Hongwei, deputy P上海419of the nuclear power

r plant, said the four reactors are the world’s first-ever third-g

上海419eneration pressurized water reactors that are being built without any time overruns.

Zheng Mingguang, president of Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Inst

itute Co Ltd, an affiliate of the State Power Investment Corp, said China has accumulated precious experiences and上海419女神会所

capabilities in nuclear power project design, construction, and operation over the past few decades.

By the end of June, China had 47 reactors in operation with a capacity of about 48.73 million kW, and the nuclear power

上海419plants produced about 160 billion kWh of electricity in the first half of 2019, up 23.09 percent year-on-year and acc

ounted for 4.75 percent of the total electricity generated in China, according to the China Nuclear Energy Association.

“We used to lag behind, but thanks to efforts of several generations of researchers, China is now among the few cou上海419女神会所

ntries in the world to have a comprehensive third-generation nuclear power industrial chain,” said Zheng, who is a

lso chief engineer of CAP1400, a third-generation nuclear reactor technology developed by the institute.

上海419China is among the best in the world’s nuclear power industry, with di

stinct competitive advantages to export nuclear power projects, he said.

CAP1400 utilizes proven technologies and takes advantage of superior design features to reduce costs and meet high上海419女神会所

safety requirements, he said, adding China is able to design and manufacture key equipment and materials.

Over 85 percent of components and devices of CAP1400, including key ones s

上海419uch as steam generators, pressure vessels, accumulators, and squib valves, can

be domestically manufactured, thanks to efforts and innovations from both State-owned and private Chinese com上海419女神会所

panies, while the rest can be sourced from multiple foreign suppliers, according to Zheng

Barbey, 78, says he saw former premier Zhou Enlai many times (during the 1973 visit). “The trip by t

he French president lasted for five or six days, and Zhou was with the delegation every day for reasons of protocol.”上海419品茶微信

Barbey recalls that whenever Pompidou visited Beijing, Shanghai or Datong in Shanxi prov

上海419ince, where the French president traveled to see archaeological sites, he saw Zhou every day.

“Zhou is a special figure to the French people. He spent some years in France as a young m

an, among the generation of Chinese students who came to the country on a study-work program.”上海419

Barbey remembers asking Zhou’s interpreter, a woman in her mid-50s, how many French

上海419interpreters of her caliber were there in China-and she answered there was “about 11”. When he vis

ited Shanghai, he was told that there were only three French people living in the city.上海419品茶微信

One of the most iconic photos Barbey took from the 1973 visit is a portrait of Zhou when he

accompanied Pompidou on a boat trip around the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

上海419The image is not included in the show at the National Art Museum, but a portrait of another i

mportant figure who had a connection with France-a snapshot of Ba Jin sunbathing in 1980-is on display. Th上海419

e prominent Chinese author also studied in France for two years during the late 1920s.

“I met him very briefly in Shanghai at his house. He still spoke French,” says Barbey.上海419

The warm tones and sharpness of Barbey’s imagery also pres

上海419品茶微信erve the vibrant details of people’s everyday lives at a time when taking photos remained a lux

ury for many. Many of the scenes and ways of life have now vanished from the fast-paced metropolis. For example, one pho

to Barbey took in Nanjing shows boats with elongated sails traveling along the Yangtze River, while another photo show上海419

s paddy fields on the outskirts of Shanghai which have now been replaced by high-rise buildings.

Jean Loh, a photography curator and publisher, comments in the Color of China’s foreword: “Beijing, Shanghai, Sichu上海419品茶微信

an and Guangxi are, in his eyes, so different and distinct from one another … His Kodachrome film faithfully captured

the ochre red of the imperial palace of the Forbidden City and the morning blue of the Shanghai Bund.”

With the decline in th上海419ork, consumption has

s also started to drop, partly due to the psychological effect of the viru

s, which has made some people reluctant to eat pork and so they turn to other meat, he said.上海419品茶微信

“The supply of alternatives to pork, such as poultry, will increase in

上海419the next two years, which will help ease the gap between the supply and demand of pork.”

More convenient immigration policies will be adopted nationwide starting Aug 1 that make it easier for foreig

n talent to come to China, the National Immigration Administration said on Wednesday.上海419品茶微信

The 12 new policies aim to attract foreign talent, outstanding youths and overseas Chinese to inn

上海419ovate, start businesses, study and work in China to help promote economic and social development.

The policies have been gradually implemented in some free trade zones in 16 provinces and municipalities, includi

ng Shanghai, Beijing and Fujian province, since 2015, said the Ministry of Public Security.上海419品茶微信

Their extension will allow a wider range of people across the country to apply for permanent residency, long-term visas and residence p

ermits, said Chen Bin, head of the immigration authority’s department of foreigner administration.

上海419The new policies add three types of people to those eligible for permanent residency.

The first category covers high-level foreign talent, inclu

ding people who have made significant contributions and those in special demand.

The second applies to foreigners working in China. They need to have wor上海419品茶微信

ked in the country for at least four consecutive years, and to have lived in the country for no l

ess than six months a year. Their annual income should be at least six times the average for local urban employ

上海419ees, and their annual personal income tax should be no less than 20 percent of their salary.

The third category refers to overseas Chinese who have a doctoral de上海419品茶微信

gree or who have worked in national key development areas in China for at least f

our consecutive years and who have lived in China for at least six months a year.

oga Lin gave a show in Beijing recently as part of his Idol World Tour, wh

ich he launched in 2018 at the Taipei Arena, to mark a decade in the music business. 上海419

For the Idol World Tour, Lin, 31, is music director. And he ha

 上海419品茶微信s rearranged his hits and worked with multimedia artists to design the visual images.

Meanwhile, the veteran-studded cast also includes actor Wu Gang, known for China’s all-time h 上海419

ighest-grossing film Wolf Warrior 2, and Taiwan actor Chin Shih-chie, a best supporting actor w

 上海419品茶微信inner at Beijing International Film Festival for the martial arts film The Master in 2016.

Separately, at a recent promotional event in Beijing, Huang said that most of the scenes for the series were shot over eight m

onths at a film and TV drama filming base near the West Taihu Lake in Changzhou, in Jiangsu province. 上海419

After Beijing, Lin will tour other Chinese cities, including Qingdao, in Shand

ong province; Nanjing, in Jiangsu province and Changsha, in Hunan province, till the end

 上海419品茶微信of August. And besides China, he will go to Auckland, Melbourne and Sydney in September.

Lin, who was born in Pingtung, Taiwan, joined a rock band while in hig

h school and performed in local pubs before launching his career as a singer.

He took his first steps to stardom by winning the first season of the One Mil 上海419品茶微信

lion Starcompetition in 2007, a popular reality TV singing contest in Taiwan.

So far, he has released five full-length studio albums, includi

ng Fiction and Perfect Life, both nominated for awards at the Taiwan Golden Melody Awards. 上海419

No matter how the i上海419ion changes,Chinause, the c

ina will firmly 上海419女神会所support the DPRK’s socialist cause, the country’s new strategic line and its efforts

to promote the political settlement of the peninsula issue and safeguard regional peace and stability, Xi said.上海419品茶微信

On behalf of the Party, government and people of China, Xi expressed gratitude for the warm rec

上海419eption and thoughtful arrangements from the DPRK. The friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere thr

oughout the visit has reflected the deep friendship between the two parties and two countries, Xi said.

Hailing the visit as a great success, Xi said that it has strengthened上海419品茶微信

the traditional friendship between China and the DPRK, set the direction for the deve

上海419lopment of bilateral ties in the new period and demonstrated the two countries’ firm determination to promote th

e political settlement of the peninsula issue and safeguard peace and stability of the region.

The visit took place in this important year, which marks the 70th anni

versary of diplomatic relations. It is also the fifth meeting between the two leaders in the pa上海419品茶微信

st 15 months, Xi said, adding that both are vivid demonstrations of the vitality of China-DPRK traditional friendship.

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419

ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res

toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419

nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.

Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信

increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which

上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r

estoration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.

“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信

ges have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe

riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku.

Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419

do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.

Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series bec

上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a

nd on the other hand, she wanted the younger generation to gain new experience through watching these classic works.

eans, Liu Yuejin, 上海419女神会所deputy director of the National Narcotics Control Comm

ission, said ahead of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, which falls on Wednesday.

The Golden Triangle, which straddles Laos, Myanmar and Thailand, accounts for nearly

85 percent of the drugs illegally consumed in China, according to the Ministry of Public Security.

Last year, Chinese police seized 29.6 metric tons of dru

gs from the Golden Triangle, up 17.6 percent year-on-year, the commission said.

The haul included 4.6 tons of crystal methamphetamine, more than four times as mu

h as in 2017, and 1.4 tons of ketamine, 35 times more than the previous year.

“Domestic drug manufacturing was hit hard last year and the traditi

onal sources of drug production in key provinces, including Guangdong, were greatly cur

bed, causing an imbalance between drug supply and demand, and higher prices for drugs nationwide,” Liu said.

ntum weakens, said Huang Yiping, deputy dean of Pe

eking Univer上海419sity’s National School of Development and a former member of the central bank’s monetary policy committee.

“But the adoption of (overly aggressive) macro-polices should be avoided” and there is no need to r

epeat 2009-type stimulation this time, Huang said last week. “Because it could have negative c

onsequences, including excessive production capacity, inflation and asset bubbles.”

Finance ministers and central bank governors from the G20 group gathered in Fukuoka, Japan, over the weekend and discuss

ed possible impacts of escalated China-US trade tensions on economic growth. The International Monetary F

und and the World Bank have recently downgraded their global growth projections for the next two years.

Finance Minister Liu Kun warned at the G20 meeting that protectionism co

uld hurt global growth. “All parties should pay close attention to downside risks and joint

ly protect the rule-based multilateral mechanism. Trade disputes should be resolved on a basis of fairness and ra

tionality,” said Liu, according to a statement on the ministry’s website on Sunday.

China would like to promote coordination between the Belt

elt and Road Initiative and the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Xi said.

Noting that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the foundin

g of the People’s Republic of China, Xi said the Chinese government is making all-aro

und efforts to achieve its goal of lifting all the country’s poorest people out of poverty by 2020.

The Chinese government aims to create more than 11 million jobs this year,

Xi said, adding that China will promote the development of occupational education.

Xi said the Belt and Road Initiative, first proposed in 2013, aims to achieve common development with other countries.

China held the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in April, during w

hich participating countries agreed to promote the building of the Belt and Road with high quality, Xi said.
