Radicals breached ‘bottom line’ of law, spokeswoman says
Two organizations of the central government expressed strong indignation and condemnation on Wednesd亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
ay over violent acts targeting mainland residents at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the airport resumed operations on Wednesday after the High Court in the Hong Kong亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
Special Administrative Region issued an interim injunction banning unlawful obstruction of airport operations.
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419The order, requested by Airport Authority Hong Kong, prohibits
any person from unlawfully and willfully obstructing and interfering with ope
rations at the airport, according to a statement issued by the authority on Wednesday morning.
The Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrativ亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
e Region and the State Council’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office responded to the violence at the airport.
Two mainland residents were illegally detained and beaten on Tuesday night by radical protesters who occupied and crip亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
led the airport. The two are a Global Times reporter and a Shenzhen resident who was accused of being an undercover pol
ice officer from the mainland. After the assault, the two were taken to local hospitals for medical treatment.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
“The atrocity has totally gone beyond the bottom line of a civilized society,
which is no different from terrorists’ acts,” the Liaison Office statement said.
The office pointed out that the protesters’ acts, including paralyzing operations of the airport and harassing passengers of var亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
ious nationalities and ages, severely hurt others’ rights and damaged Hong Kong’s international reputation.
“This time the protesters have torn down their deceptive masks of ‘peace, rationality and nonviolence'”, the statement said.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
The liaison office pledged that it will continue to stand behind relevant authoritie
s to safeguard the personal safety and legitimate rights of mainland residents in Hong Kong.
The Commissioner’s Office of China’s Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong has lodged stern representations with US Consu
late General on its officer meeting “Hong Kong Independence” activists, a statement on the office’s website said on Thursday.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
The statement came after it was reported that an officer at the US Consulate Gene
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419ral in Hong Kong and Macao held a meeting with major “Hong Kong Independence” activists.
An official at the Commissioner’s Office urgently summoned a senior official at the US Consulate General to lodge stern repres
entations, expressing strong disapproval and firm opposition, and requiring clarification, according to the statement.
The official of the Commissioner’s Office emphasized that China is rock-firm in upholding natio亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
nal sovereignty and security and Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, and in opposing any inter
ference in Hong Kong affairs by any country, organization or individual in whatever form, the statement said.
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信We strongly urge the members of the US Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao to abide by international law and basic
norms governing international relations, including the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the
Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, and observe their obligations as consular personnel, said the statement.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
They are urged to immediately make a clean break from anti-China forces who stir up tro
uble in Hong Kong, stop sending out wrong signals to violent offenders, refrain from meddling with
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信Hong Kong affairs, and avoid going further down the wrong path, said the statement.

These are the international events under the spotlight for the week starting July 29.?亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
China and the US will hold the 12th round of trade talks in Shanghai from July 30 to 31, said
Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng at a news conference on Thursday.
?亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419The meetings scheduled for next week will be the first face-to-face discussions betw
een the two sides since their top leaders met at the G20 summit in Japan last month.
The 52nd ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (AMM) and its related m?亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
eetings will take place from July 29 to Aug 3 in Bangkok. The meetings will further ad
vance topics discussed by ASEAN leaders at the 34th ASEAN Summit, which has just concluded.
?亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419The main topics at the AMM in Bangkok will continue to be driving and responding to new challenges, which are relat

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Trade Represent
ative Robert Lighthizer will meet with Vice-Premier Liu He to continue negotiations aimed at imp?亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
roving the bilateral trade relationship, the White House said in a statement on Wednesday.
?亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信Analysts said that holding the talks in Shanghai, the country’s financia
l hub, will help the US have a more direct understanding of China — a nation that is deter
mined to further open up. Previously, the trade talks in China took place in Beijing.
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亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台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.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台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
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台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.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台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亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所
uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台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亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所
sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台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.

Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.
It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所
after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.
The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.
The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”
Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led
by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.
“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level
sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信
New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.
Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien
t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.
More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o
f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.
The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult
ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s
ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.
In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE
SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.

亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419″According to expert data, as a result of these restrictions, Russia lost about 50 billion US dollars since 2014, while the European Unio
n lost 240 billion dollars, the United States, 17 billion dollars, and Japan 27 billion dollars,” Putin said.
He said the losses were reflected in a reduction in the number of jo亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419品茶微信

An increasing number of small and medium-sized enterprises are stepping outside of
亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所their own countries and regions to reach global markets with the help of an imp
ortant annual fair in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Guangdong province.
The China International SME Fair – which has focused on establishing a platfor亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419
m for displays of transactions, exchanges and cooperation among SMEs around the world since 2004 – will be
held from Oct 10-13 in Poly World Trade Expo Center this year, according to the event’s organizer.

“We have designed a series of activities to bring substantial benefits and business opportuni亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所
ties to international SME exhibitors, so that they can better participate in the industri
al and economic chains of the world,” said He Zuoxian, deputy director-general of the Guan

亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所So far, delegations from 28 countries, regions and international organizations have confirmed they are attending, with reservations for almost 1,100 stands – accounting for about 45 percent of all booths at the October fair, according to the organizer.
The United Arab Emirates is the co-host country of the fair for the first time, said He, bringing the total number of foreign co-hosts to 18 since the show was launched.亚博娱乐线上娱乐平台419女神会所
The UAE delegation will comprise some 75 SMEs from a broad range of sectors: agriproducts, trade and retail, innovation, technology, hospitality, industries and manufacturing. These will cover a total exhibition area of 800 square meters, said Rahma Alshamsi, UAE consul general in Guangzhou.
A number of countries – including Bulgaria, Mexico, Brazil, the Philippines, Laos and Myanmar – have shown great interest in co-hosting the fair in the future and will hold talks with the organizers during the event, He said.
Meanwhile, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, which co-hosted the fair last year, has agreed to take the role for the next five years starting from this year. He said the move would give impetus to the consistent development of SMEs across the globe.
Zhang Linhe, head of the business unit in the Ofice of Japan External Organization in Gua
ngzhou, told the briefing that 29 companies from a variety of industries – including food, beauty products, fashion and
metalware – would join the Japanese delegation. Zhang said 17 of these are new to the event.
