For instance, an electric ca上海千花网run 350 kilomet

ers on one charge would earn 5 credits for its maker according to previous equations, and in the draft proposal the credits will be redu

ced to 2.5, according to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association.上海千花网

He added that the proposed policy encourages better technology as more efficient power consumption will earn more credits.

上海千花网女神会所Analysts said the plan’s release will help carmakers to coordinate their production plans, es

pecially international ones, which have been slower than Chinese ones to respond to policy changes.

Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen AG, called for a stable policy envi上海千花网

ronment at the World New Energy Vehicle Congress held in early July in Hainan province.

The German carmaker said almost half of its new energy vehicles produced in 2028 will

上海千花网女神会所be made in China. China has been the largest market for new energy vehicles since it overtook the United States in 2015.

So far there are around 3.5 million such vehicles on its roads.

The country’s new energy vehicle sales surged 65.9 percent year-on-year to 577,000 units上海千花网

during the January-June period, data from the China Passenger Car Association showed.

上海千花网女神会所The draft proposal is expected to help boost hybrids as well, to which Japanese carmakers have devoted much time and money.

They would still be considered fossil-fueled but re-classified as “low fuel consu

mption passenger vehicles” and thus will incur less negative points than traditional vehicles.

Under the current system, automakers in China are obliged to make up for a portion of the negative points they incur whe上海千花网女神会所

n they produce internal combustion engine vehicles with points won for producing new energy vehicles.

Analysts said the revision could see more traditional vehicles replaced with hybrids, because when automakers prod

uce hybrids. The proposed change came as a surprise, some experts and industry officials said, because the gove上海千花网女神会所

rnment has never before given any preferential treatment for hybrid technology.

“The new proposed policy is a roundabout way to promote hybrid cars,” said Cui in a social media post.

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.

first recording on Germa上海千花坊abel will promote C

Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou

ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊

hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.

上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the

Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou

nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co

上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.

“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i

dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊

uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”

上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy

mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co

nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v

iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所

“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu

上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in

ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c

ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee

l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所

Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’

s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De

上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and

orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.

Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.

digital path to better h上海千花坊l leaders at the rec

ecent annual gathering of the World Health Assembly in Geneva expressed worry and optimi

sm in almost equal measure. Delegates at the assembly-the decision-making body of the World He上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所alth Organization-likened the scope of the world’s health crisis to that of the threat posed by climate change. They also ag

reed, however, that digital technology and data will play a crucial role in accelerating efforts to achieve health for all.上海千花坊

In many respects, the world’s health has improved markedly in recent decades: average global life expectancy has incr

eased by more than five years, while childhood mortality has declined by more than 50 percent since 1990. Yet half the wo上海千花坊

rld’s population still lacks full access to basic health services, and health-related expenses drive roughly 100 m

上海千花坊女神会所illion people into poverty every year. The problem is particularly severe in low-and middle-income countries, where the fin

ancial burden of the four most frequent non-communicable diseases alone (cardiovascular disease, cancer, dia

betes and chronic respiratory diseases) is expected to surpass $7 trillion from 2011 to 2025, according to WHO.上海千花坊

At the same time, the world is just beginning to recognize the potential of digitally enhanced data to improve health. With increased use of digital tech

上海千花坊nology, we can help people stay healthy, rather than waiting for them to get sick. We can make reactive healthcare s

ystems proactive and-thanks to artificial intelligence (AI)-even predictive.

Most cost-effective way to meet health-related SDGs上海千花坊女神会所

In our view, digital health is the most efficient, cost-effective way for the world to meet the United Nations Sustainable Develo

上海千花坊pment Goals’ health-related targets-particularly universal health coverage, whereby everyone can access the q

uality care they need without incurring financial hardship. This is also a high priority for WHO, which earlier this

year created a Department of Digital Health and published its first set of guidelines on the subject.上海千花坊

With several major global strategy-setting meetings ahead, including the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Co

上海千花坊女神会所verage in New York in September, the world must act now to realize the promise of digital health. We see three dist

inct opportunities for cross-sectoral partnerships: in prediction, prevention and healthcare delivery.

Understanding-and, where possible, predicting-the health profile of populations is integral to providing better上海千花坊女神会所

care. Digitalized data collection, including through the use of AI and machine learning, can help healthcare sys

tems to detect risk factors in advance and respond quickly to prevent disease. Real-time data can inform planning and re

source-allocation decisions, reduce costs, and improve the overall quality of care. Better

processes for ensuring data security and privacy are also essential to implement predictive systems at scale.

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

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

Hog industry gets he上海419lp amid deadly outbreaks

hina will intensify efforts to make its hog farming sector safer and ensure stable supplies after the industry has

上海419been seriously affected by African swine fever outbreaks, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Thursday.

“We will place equal importance on disease prevention and control and on pork output to st

abilize hog production and try to guarantee market supplies,” Vice-Minister of Agriculture and Rural Af上海419

fairs Yu Kangzhen said at a news conference organized by the State Council Information Office.上海419

Yu was elaborating on a guideline released by the State Council on Wednesday regarding intensifying prevention and control of African swine fever.

Outbreaks of the fever have been effectively contained in China in recent months following strict controls and prevent

上海419品茶微信ion efforts taken since early August after the first domestic outbreak of the disease was reported. But the co

untry still faces severe challenges in the disease’s prevention and control, and sustained efforts are needed, he said.

Yang Zhenhai, chief of the ministry’s Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Medicine Bureau, said monit上海419

oring has shown the number of live hogs in China fell by nearly 23 percent year-on-year in May due to the outbreaks.

The ministry will work with related authorities to urge local governments to implement policies and m上海419品茶微信

easures designed to support hog raising, including offering preferable loans to hog farmers and cash subsidies to those wh

上海419ose animals were slaughtered due to swine fever prevention and control measures, he said.

The authorities will encourage hog farmers to replenish stock and organize technicians to hel

p them solve problems in hog raising. Meanwhile, the ministry will guide local authorities to help hog fa上海419品茶微信

The ministry will also support cross-regional transport of pork to replace transport of live pigs-which is still co

mmon practice in many places-to reduce the chance of the spread of disease, Yang said.上海419品茶微信

As of Wednesday, Yu said, 143 swine fever outbreaks had been reported in China, 44 of them this year. To prevent it spre
