China’s determination to expand opening-up and the ong

going reform measures have made its financial market increasingly appealing to overse

as investors,” the administration said on Monday in a statement on its website.

“The administration will continue to support the opening-up of financ

ial markets, meet demand from overseas investors to expand investment in the ma

rkets and attract global long-term capital to enter China’s financial markets,” it said.

Given the stable performance of the yuan and expectations of balanced capital flows, China’s fore

ign exchange reserves remained stable in April, reaching $3.095 trillion by the end of last month, co

mpared with $3.099 trillion by March, according to data released by the administration on Tuesday.

China is willing to see the accelerated development of the onshore capital market, said analysts, allowing direct fi

nancing to play a more significant role in allocating savings and investment, and better serve the economy.

Under a pilot scheme, the first group of six provinces and cities sold 6.8 billion yuan in bonds

at commercial bank counters to individual buyers between March 22 and early April.

The coupon rates are between 3.01 percent and 3.33 percent, higher than treasury b

onds issued by the central government as well as bank deposits with the same maturity.

Gross local bond issuances hit 1.18 trillion yuan in the first qua

rter, compared with only 219.5 billion yuan in the same period last year.

The total quota for 2019 local government bond issuances is 3.08 trillion yuan, according to the Ministry of Finance.

“About 60 percent of the bonds were issued for ongoing construction, especially

for shantytown renovation projects, railways and roads,” said Hao Lei, head of the ministry’s Budget Department.

While debt financing continues to grow, the government is experiencing sharp declin

es in fiscal revenue growth, especially from tax and land sales, official data showed.

President outlines goals for improving, protecting country’s natural heritage

President Xi Jinping has called for mobilization at the national level and joint particip

ation from the whole of society to move forward with large-scale campaigns to make the homeland greener.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Commit

tee, made the remark as he took part in a voluntary tree planting event in Beijing on Monday.

Working alongside students, Xi shoveled soil and emptied water buckets

before planting seven trees in a forest park in the capital’s Tongzhou district.

He underscored the importance of giving play to China’s honored tradition of loving, pla

nting and protecting trees to ensure that national forestation programs yield concrete results continuously.

He noted that this year marks the 40th anniversary of China’s creation of the tree planting festival on March 12 each year. Over

the past 40 years, China’s forest coverage and its net volume of timber have doubled, he said, adding that Chin

a has made the largest contribution to the world’s increase in the area of vegetation in recent times.

And if parliament *actually* says what it wantsad to ask, didn’t yo

  It’s very likely that any consensus that could be reached across the Commons would be a softer Brexit than the one May is currently pursuing.

  That, I am afraid, is still a fairly open-ended answer. It might mean the need to renegotiate, which would mean a longer exten

sion, which would mean being in the EU elections, which could mean a second referendum, ultimately.

  The key point here is that cross-party consensus might soun

d nice, but on an issue as divisive as Brexit, it’s as likely as anything to blow up both main parties.

  While things are far from rosy and three weeks is not enough t

ime to sort much, it’s worth noting that while Brexit might not be going terribly well, the last thr

ee years have been a huge learning curve for the entire UK. We know more now than we did.

  So while the next bit of the Brexit process might look crunchy, the decisions made in the coming days will not be made lightly.

The UK National Cyber Security Centre has concluded tha

ways to limit the risks from using Huawei in future 5G ultra-fast networks,” according to tw

o people familiar with the matter which has not been made public, The Financial Times reported.

The article comments that the conclusion is “a serious blow to US efforts to persuade

allies to ban the Chinese supplier from high-speed telecommunications systems.”

As a member of the Five Eyes (the anglophone intelligence alliance comprising Austral

ia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US), London may indeed have given a reason for other E

uropean countries to continue using Huawei based on the above conclusion.

Not a single country or organization has found any evidence so far demonstrating that Huawei has illegally collected its device users’ i

nformation. All accusations against Huawei of gathering intelligence for the Chinese government are only ba

sed on imagination. London’s conclusion provides a reliable basis for third parties to dispel such fears.
