 this year, a上海夜网品茶微信nd the central government will take a series of significant measures to promote high-quality economic development, Liu said.

Huang said China should be cautious about the impact of the slowing global growth and also hold some measures in reserve.

“If we use up all the ammunition, what are we going to do in a coup

One aim of the literature festival is to improve the cul

ltural appeal of the countryside so as to attract people back, Jia says. The organizers are als

o working to promote communication between the authors and the villagers, and encourage more reading activities.

Rural resident Ren Chunhua, 63, who now works as a narrator at a local history gallery, was list

ening to Ge Fei’s lecture in her gallery neighboring the festival venue and wanted to buy his work and got the write

r’s signature. She thought Ma’s work inspired by village life in the 1950s was well-written and accurately reflected the reality there.

Literature aficionado Cao Liang drove for two hours from Taigu county to attend the lectures. Having coll

ected all of Su’s books and being familiar with many of the guest authors’ works, he is currently writing his own novel.

Villagers took turns to attend the festival, a move which Ren believes will in

vigorate the local cultural environment and raise Jiajiazhuang’s profile.

The Sino-US trade tensions have had a limited impact

mpact on China’s financial markets and the effects will be “even smaller” in the future, Guo said.

Yi Huiman, chairman of the CSRC, also pledged earlier in May to continuously enhance the quality of listed firms as part of s

Trump arrives in Japan for state visitUS President Donald Trump

 arrived in Japan for a state visit that will make him the first world leader to meet the country’s new emperor.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived Saturday aboard Air Force One after a 14-hour journey. The president was h

eading to a dinner with business leaders at the US Ambassador’s residence in Tokyo after a brief airport welcome.

The visit is part of a continuing charm offensive by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo

Abe that analysts say has spared Japan from far more debilitating retaliatory action by Trump.

The president has refused to lift the threat of slapping potentially devastating US

tariffs on imports of Japanese autos and auto parts on national security grounds.

US tariffs against Japanese aluminum and steel remain.

May’s Brexit deal has been rejected three times by parliament, and weeks of talks with the opposition Labour Party, the idea

A BBC reporter said on Thursday those talks were due to be

called off soon after the ruling Conservatives gave up on any hope of a resolution.

Conflict also disrupts growth. Although many conflic

icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio

s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so

urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.

But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th

ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc

ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.

Belt and Road can play vital development role

There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e

nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn
