Local governments told to provide accurate information to authorities
Authorities have found a series of problems上海419论坛女神会所
while carrying out the third national land survey, warning local gover
nments and natural resource departments to fulfill their responsibilities.
上海419论坛The problems were outlined on Friday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the central
government supervision team, and involved 20 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions.
In Qinghai province, for example, local natural resources department and sup上海419论坛
ervisory teams were blamed for not taking the field surveys seriously, nor did they urg
e that uncovered problems be corrected in accordance with rules and regulations.
In Yulin, Shaanxi province, entities did not fully carr上海419论坛女神会所
y out the investigation responsibly, resulting in imprecise
outcomes, and county-level authorities deliberately changed and forged mapping data.
“Those cases reflected problems, such as poor quality surveys a上海419论坛nd data accuracy. I hope that will be a w
arning for future work,” said Wang Guanghua, vice-minister of natural resources.
He said the ministry will not tolerate the forging of data.上海419论坛女神会所

MORE BENEFITS FOR ALL
上海419论坛女神会所While protectionism and fierce global competition for resources have dive
rted some economies’ attention from making a bigger cake to wrestling for a larger slic
e, Xiplomacy staunchly advocates common efforts to create more shared interests and benefits.
“We should forge a global connectivity partnership to achieve common development and prosperity,” Xi said at th上海419论坛
e Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in April. “As long as we work together to help each oth
上海419论坛er, even if thousands of miles apart, we will certainly be able to find a mutually beneficial and win-win road.”
His remarks resonated with many attendees at the event, which was held in Beijing
上海419论坛女神会所and gathered participants from more than 150 countries and 90 international organizations.
Xi proposed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013 and frequently promoted it on multiple i
nternational occasions. The endeavors have borne fruitful results — some 126 countries上海419论坛
and 29 international organizations have signed BRI cooperation documents with China.
From 2013 to 2018, trade between China and other BRI countries surpas
上海419论坛女神会所sed $6 trillion, and China’s investment in BRI countries exceeded $90 billion.
“The BRI has transcended the challenges of geography and une

The US accusation of “erosion of Hong Kong’s autonom

The accelerated launch of a new batch of pilot free trade zones shows China’s determinatio

上海419论坛Industry analysis shows the new pilot free trade zones may come from six out of eig

China Securities Journal reported the above provinces and autonomous regions have all applied to build pilot free trade zones. S上海419论坛

上海419论坛品茶微信These free trade zones will most likely be located along the Yangtze River Economic Belt, the Silk Road Economic Belt,
21st Century Maritime Silk Road and around the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, said Bai Ming, deputy director of the I

“China will set up six new pilot free trade zones and open a new section of the Shanghai Pi上海419论坛品茶微信lot Free Trade Zone, and will sp

Xiamen International Cruise Home Port in East China’s Fujian province has registered a record

上海419论坛Having hosted over 3,500 passengers this year, it is expected

In early April the reconstruction of Xiamen International Cruises’ berths was completed.
上海419论坛The total length is over 1,400 meters, including a 150,000-ton, two

“After the reconstruction, the entire cruise service has been greatly improved. The fir

“A 130,000-ton ship named Glory will also be brought into o

The provincial government also rolled out a scheme this May to spur cruise ship growth by 2035, with

The Ministry of Education and the British Council recently announced the recipients of the first round of seed fund上海419论坛

As part of the funding, an initial 420,000 pounds ($527,000) of the investm

is an essential step in connecting the brightest minds across the world to improve the qua

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma
n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛
r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,
上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.
This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth
er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛
man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people
上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.
As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji
ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所
cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.
vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin
jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所
ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.
上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi
t Xinjiang, but what they came up with are distorted versions of the situation, twisted history and pre
judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛
Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of
supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛
There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive
behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li
nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th
e Cold War, the US devised a so-called Xinjiang policy to boost its Central Asia strategy and new global strategy, one
of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.

“It hardly would have been possible for a tribe or a league of tribes to mobilize so many

Division of labor, hierarchical social classes and inequality in wealth were also observed when studying the Taosi Site (from
4,300 to 4,100 years ago) in Xiangfen county, Shanxi province, and several other key sites of “huge city ruins”, he said.上海419论坛女神会所
The relics are from what is believed to have been the capital of Emperor Ya
o, a legendary ancient ruler. Some markings were discovered that are believed to be a pro
上海419论坛女神会所totype of written characters, but they appear to have been used exclusively within a small group of ruling elites.
“Around 5,000 years ago, some regions along the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the western bank
of Liaohe River (in Northeast China) stepped into the age of civilization,” Wang said. Those ancient sta上海419论坛
tes, he said, “controlled certain territory, but had economic, political and cultural connections with each other”.
上海419论坛女神会所During the time of the Erlitou Site (3,750 to 3,550 years ago), in Luoyang, Henan province, China entered what is often called the age of dynasties, Wang said.
“Erlitou marked the time when the Central China plain began to widely influence上海419论坛
the surrounding areas,” he said. “It created a foundation for a united country with multiethnic groups.”
Speaking of how to define “civilization”, Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University
上海419论坛女神会所who is in charge of the project, said traditional criteria in Western academia, which emphasize the ap
