People living in Hotan prefecture in the southern Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region
上海419论坛can travel to other parts of China along a newly opened expressway connecting th
e last prefecture in Xinjiang to the modern transportation infrastructure in the rest of the country.
The expressway, linking Shule county in Kashgar prefecture and Moyu county上海419论坛
in Hotan, stretches 434 kilometers and is a subsection of the G30 National Express
上海419论坛女神会所way, which links Lianyungang in East China’s Jiangsu province with Horgos on the China-Kazakhstan border.
Construction of the expressway began in July 2017 and it opened on July 31. It has a designed speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour.
The Hotan prefecture had its first expressway linking Moyu county and Hotan cit上海419论坛
y in August last year, but the expressway was not connected with those in other parts of Xinjiang.
Hotan is located in southern Xinjiang, which is known for its hostile environ
上海419论坛女神会所ment and complex geological conditions. It is also one of the poorest regions in China.
Pan Feng, president of a logistics company in Hotan, said the opening of the new expressway is great news for logistics comp
anies as it can shorten the travel time from Kashgar to Hotan from eight hours to just more than four hours.上海419论坛女神会所
“The opening of the expressway will improve traffic infrastructure and benefit the economic development and po
verty alleviation of Hotan,” said Lu Jun, head of the construction team for the expressway.
上海419论坛Extra efforts were taken to overcome construction difficulties and extreme weather, s
uch as sandstorms, rainstorms and flooding and to protect the local ecosystem, he said.
The total length of expressways in Xinjiang is expected to reach 5,234 km by the end of 2019, with上海419论坛
an additional 434 km being built this year, according to the Xinjiang transport department.

Sun Yuchen, or Justin Sun, the 29-year-old cryptocurrency entrepreneur and this year’s Warren Buffett lunch winner, apologized
for his excessive marketing and publicity stunt on the Chinese social media platform Weibo on Thursday.上海419论坛
Sun said the lunch meeting came from his admiration of Warre
n Buffett and his love for philanthropy, and he also wanted to take the opportunit
上海419论坛女神会所y to promote the blockchain industry, though it turned out to be an overblown marketing attempt.
The Chinese entrepreneur won the auction for this year’s Buffett lun
ch with a record high $4.57 million bid in June, while he canceled the planned lunch m上海419论坛
eeting, claiming he had “a sudden kidney stone attack” in a Tuesday post on Weibo.

hinese authorities that would restrict him from traveling abroad for allegations includi
ng illegal fundraising, money laundering, gambling and spreading pornography.
Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they intend, to in
crease the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.上海419论坛品茶微信
Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MS
上海419论坛CI Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la
rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent－a significant incr
ease from the current 0.7 percent－of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.上海419论坛品茶微信
The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese ma
上海419论坛inland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated China’s A-shares to emerging market
status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon full imple
mentation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.上海419论坛品茶微信
And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-deno
上海419论坛minated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R
ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.
The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a sizable share of the invest上海419论坛品茶微信
ible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tracked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in
上海419论坛assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and other investors. And the re-weighting
of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capital across emerging markets. As a
result, China’s asset market will inevitably become more important for global in上海419论坛品茶微信
vestors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.
ory of Music Middle School, in Beijing. Her score for pipaperformance ranked first among candidates in the country. From 1981-1987, she stu
died at the Central Conservatory of Music (in Beijing), where she became the first reci 上海419论坛
pient of a master’s degree in the pipa(in the country). Then, she began teaching at the school. However, she was not s
上海419论坛品茶微信atisfied with the “stable life.” In 1990, she traveled — alone — to Los Angeles (LA), to pursue further studies in the pipa.
Wu felt lost when she first arrived in LA, as most Americans, who had never seen the pipa, were not
accustomed to the musical instrument. As she struggled to adapt to her new life, Wu performed, in her 上海419论坛
spare time, in communities and primary and middle schools (in LA), to help Americans understand the beauty of the
上海419论坛品茶微信pipa. At the same time, though, Wu felt as if she were in music heaven, because she was able to study various ge
nres of music, including jazz, musicals, electronic music and rock and roll, to her heart’s content.
To help Americans understand the beauty of the oriental mus
ical instrument, she has, for the past three decades, played the pipa during numer 上海419论坛品茶微信
ous musical performances, including recitals and symphony and chamber music concerts. As a result, ma
上海419论坛ny Americans have become Wu’s fans. As Musical America (the oldest American magazine on classical music) noted, “She is th
e very model of a modern soloist, but more importantly, her work is part of a big step in the evolution of Western classi
cal music. Thanks to her, the pipa is no longer an exotic curiosity, let alone a complete mystery.” 上海419论坛品茶微信
Compared with Western music, traditional Chinese music tends to be more abstract, which leaves one with greater ro
上海419论坛om for imagination. After you watch a pipa performance, you may enjoy its lasting, and pleasant, aftertaste.
Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across disciplines, and ha
ve allowed her to reach wider audiences, as she has worked to break through cultural and musical border 上海419论坛品茶微信
s. As a result, an increasing number of Westerners have been fascinated by the unique charm of Wu
上海419论坛’s “lute -like instrument.” During the past 29 years, Wu has achieved fruitful results in collaborating with Kronos Q
uartet. Early in 1995, Wu and Kronos premiered their first project, Tan Dun (a Chinese contemporary classical co 上海419论坛品茶微信
mposer and conductor)’s Ghost Opera, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (in New YorkW
ithin a short time, Wu and Kronos embarked on a worldwide musical tour. Their performances were well received.

The gross profit margin for the US’ three giant garbage sorting companies are 30 to 40 percent a上海419论坛
nd each has healthy cash flow, while China’s sanitation industry only reaches 6 to 10 percent, Zhang said.
The sanitation industry in China is in an expansion phase with tight cash flows, a
上海419论坛女神会所nd the industry has plenty of room to develop in the Chinese market, she added.
Policy supporting are still needed to grow sanitation as an industry, startup heads and investors told 21jingji.com.
Garbage clearance and transportation needs qualification licenses, which are given by the government in China.上海419论坛女神会所
As garbage sorting promoting and the sanitation
industry become hotspots, licenses will become precious.
上海419论坛Furthermore, achieving large-scale development and standard
ized operation in the industry are questions for startups to explore, the website said.
In June an official with the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, said the上海419论坛
country will invest 21.3 billion yuan in the construction of garbage processing facilities, and by 2025 all 300 Chi
上海419论坛女神会所nese cities at or above the prefecture level shall complete the building of garbage sorting and processing systems.

The ongoing East Asia Expo 2019 held in Jinan, capital of East China’s Shandong province, has attracte
d more than 500 institutions and enterprises from 56 countries and regions and presented over 10,000 exhibits.
上海419论坛女神会所The expo focuses on the development of trade in goods and servi

“The expo sets a good stage for economic and trade exchanges,” said Darya.
上海419论坛女神会所Deep sea cod from the Netherlands are also popular at the expo, with long queues outside the Dutch exhibition area.
Many exhibitors are confident about the huge consumption potential of the Chine
se market. “Tariffs have been cut, and even the prices of those imported with original packaging are not so high. On 上海419论坛
the other hand, in the context of the consumption upgrading, many Chinese consumers pay more attention to the q
uality of goods and life,” said Cai Lizhen, an importer of ceramic glazed pots in the German exhibition area.
Scheduled from July 5 to 7, the expo also includes an e-commerce development for

es have been retu上海419论坛品茶微信rned to China to stand trial from more than 120 countries and regions since 2014, the leading anti-corruption watchdog said.
The announcement came just before the fifth anniversary on Thursday of the founding of the of
fice created to coordinate anti-corruption efforts as a means to help bolster the hunt for fugitives.
That office was established on June 27, 2014, to strengthen the work undertaken by the Interna
tional Cooperation Bureau of the Communist Party of China’s Central Commission for Discipline Insp
ection. It was set up to better coordinate the efforts of such entities as the CCDI, the Supreme People’s Court, th
e Foreign Ministry and the Public Security Ministry in pursuing fugitives who escaped overseas.
Between January 2014 and May of this year, 5,974 fugitives suspected of economic
crimes, including 1,425 government officials, were brought back, and 14.248 billion
Institutes for In上海419论坛品茶微信ternational Studies, said the Xi-Trump meeting will undoubtedly be in the spotlight during the G20 Summit.
Chen said that long-lasting trade friction has led to downside risk for the Chinese economy, and a negative impact also looms over the US economy.
The International Monetary Fund warned earlier this month that US-China tariffs tha
t have been implemented or proposed could cut global economic output by 0.5 percent, or $455 billion, in 2020.
The Xi-Trump meeting will help ease tensions between Beijing and Washington in trade disputes, Zhou said. “You can
‘t expect the meeting to resolve the trade issue, but it will inject impetus into trade talks,” he added.
Stephen Roach, a faculty member at Yale University and a former chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, said in the Preview Policy
Report for the G20 Osaka Summit that resolution is possible, but it won’t be easy in the current climate.
