Xinjiang Uygur sees big in上海419flux of visitorsmelons at

The Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region experienced a travel boom

上海419from January to June, and the growth is projected to co

ntinue through the rest of 2019, according to a recent report by the region’s government.

The report said that in the first half of 2019, the region received abou上海419

t 76 million visits, up 46 per-cent year-on-year. Revenue generated by tourism exc

上海419品茶微信eeded 115 billion yuan ($16 billion), registering an increase of about 48 percent over the same period last year.

Urumqi, Ili Kazak autonomous prefecture and Changji Hui autonomous pre

fecture were the three hottest destinations for travelers in the past half year. Yea

-on-year, Urumqi saw a 56 percent increase in travelers, Ili Kazak saw 81 per-cent, and Changji Hui 46 percent.上海419

Domestic travelers accounted for 98 percent of those visiting the region, w

hile the top three sources of overseas visitors were Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia.

上海419品茶微信According to the report, tourism will maintain high-speed growth of 40 percent in the next half year thanks to sta

ble public security, enhanced infrastructure construction and flourishing winter tourism.上海419

Zhang Xiaoyu, general secretary of the Xinjiang Tourism Association, said that winter use

d to be the slack season for Xinjiang because of the rather low temperatures and heavy snow.

上海419品茶微信”Numerous scenic spots were shut down when winter came, but they grew

to be new attractions to travelers thanks to the popularity of winter tourism,” he said.

In February, 351 attractions were available to travelers, much上海419

more than the 69 that opened around that time last year, according to the report.

上海419品茶微信Scenic spots also saw an increase in travelers during the winter. Zha

ng said that the region offers diversified entertainment to travelers during the season.

Most importantly, farmers,上海419iaries of the toile

et revolution, should be encouraged to actively participate in the program and freely voice thei

r concerns. As the toilet revolution is aimed at increasing farmers’ well-being, their opinions about the prog上海419

ram, especially after it is completed, should be given due importance by the local governments.

上海419Besides, the toilet modernization program should be sustainable in nature. And for that, the of

ficials need to take measures to ensure the toilets’ design and structure can withstand the test of time a上海419品茶微信

nd the facilities can be sustainably maintained. Since the aim of the toilet revolution is not just to accomplish a task assign

上海419ed by the higher authorities, but to revitalize the countryside, local officials should not embellish their performance by p

resenting results that appear impressive but lack substance. Instead, they should a

ttempt to fundamentally improve farmers’ living conditions so they can lead a better life.上海419品茶微信

Jiang Wenlai, a professor at the Institute of Agricultural Resources and Regional Planning, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences

上海419There is a need to pay more attention to sustainability

The toilet revolution has not only improved farmers’ quality of life,

but also brought them some unexpected benefits. For instance, thanks to the significant impr上海419品茶微信

ovement in the living conditions in rural areas, partly due to the toilet revolution, young people living in the city ten

d to spend more time with their parents or grandparents in the countryside. As such, farmers will gra上海419

dually recognize the program’s many benefits and their enthusiasm for the toilet revolution will likely increase.

Also, certain villages’ experiences of the nationwide toilet modernization campaign could be applied elsewhere. For i上海419品茶微信

nstance, the model of integrating toilet renovation with domestic wastewater treatment adopted by Laiwu, Sha

ndong province, not only turns waste into productive commodity, but also significantly lowers the cost of the toilet ren

ovation. This model could be applied to areas with similar conditions and socioeconomic development level.上海419

Moreover, there is a need to pay more attention to the effects and sustainability of the

toilet revolution. To this end, a third-party monitoring and evaluation system sho上海419品茶微信

uld be established to assess the results and ensure the program is properly operated in the long run.

Despite a “global slowd上海419lia’s economy has ma

aged to stay afloat thanks to a raft of stimulus measures and a surge in Chinese

demand for commodities, a new report by Deloitte Access Economics said on Monday.上海419品茶微信

While Australia has experienced falls in the real estate market, severe drought, stagnant wage gro

上海419wth and weak consumer spending over the past 18 months, strength in its robust resources sector has not waned.

This, combined with record low interest rates and generous tax breaks that were introduced by t上海419

he newly-elected Morrison government should help keep Australia’s economy on track, Deloitte Ac

cess Economics Partner Chris Richardson said in the firm’s latest Business Outlook for the month of June.上海419品茶微信

“Overall global growth looks set to stay in the slow lane through the rest o

f 2019 and through 2020 as well, though the extent of that slowdown looks to be co

上海419ntained as central banks start to boost their assistance to growth, and as government budgets do the same,” he said.

“Remarkably, despite the global slowdown, the world has given Australia a big pay上海419品茶微信

rise, as China’s stimulus means a surge in the demand for and prices of Australian coal and iron ore.”

上海419Although Australia’s inflation levels remain subdued mainly because of low wage growth, Richardson said the cou

ntry’s central bank is now beginning to change direction when it comes to monetary policy.上海419

“For years the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) thought full employme

nt meant unemployment of “around 5.0 percent,” but now it thinks unemployment can go a lit上海419

tle under 4.5 percent before wages start to party. Australia can go stronger-for-longer before inflation revs up,” he said.

上海419品茶微信”But getting unemployment under 4.5 percent is more than the RBA can do by itself, so official ra

tes are headed to 0.75 percent or 0.5 percent pretty fast, and things get more complicated after that.”

“We may be in for a phase in which Australia joins much of the world in having interest rates very low for some time. Th上海419品茶微信

at change of tack by the RBA is keeping the Australian dollar under control despite sky-high commodity prices.”

Following the DPP’s id上海419aking Taiwan an ind

ependent entity, the island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-ind

ependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, sinc上海419

e she took office in 2016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, ope

上海419品茶微信nly pitched himself as a worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai admini

stration and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has h上海419

eld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

上海419品茶微信But at the instigation of the US administration, thanks to its acts and resolutions and promise of support, the DPP co

uld try to further push forward its “pro-independence” agenda and cross the red line and worsen the situation ac

ross the Straits. Therefore, the US should review its policy and stop selling dreams to the Taiwan authorities.上海419

The Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 is a serious violation of the one China principle a

上海419品茶微信nd the three joint communiqués, which the Sino-US relationship is built on. The US’ int

erference in China’s internal affairs will not only endanger one of the world’s most important bilateral ties and jeo

pardize peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, but also increase the possibility of the mainland using w上海419

hatever means necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.

上海419品茶微信The US has frequently meddled in Taiwan affairs, which has significa

ntly undermined Sino-US ties, creating worries and risks across the Straits.

But since China is committed to safeguarding its sovereignty and territo

rial integrity, and achieving national reunification, the US should not hope to succ上海419品茶微信

eed in its design of splitting the country by leading the island authorities down the garden path.

By calling a cease-fire in上海419row, the world’s two

largest economies have sent a strong signal across the globe that th

ey want to resolve their trade disputes, which helped stock markets worldwide to stage a r上海419

ally on Monday. The fact that both countries and the world beyond have started to feel the pinch of the trade war, to s

上海419品茶微信ome extent, helped the two sides to step down a bit in order to resolve their trade frictions.

The opposition of a large number of US high-tech companies, and consu

mers and industry organizations to the trade war could seriously impair the US ad上海419品茶微信

ministration’s ability to play the card of a booming economy, which the president relies on to be re-elected in 2020.上海419

Yet, irrespective of the Trump administration’s emphasis on defending US economic

上海419interests, the US has basically formed a strategy to portray China as a main rival that involves a fier

ce competition in core areas, strategic security, geopolitics, and science and technology. As a result, more disputes on mu上海419品茶微信

ltiple fronts could be the new normal for China-US relations even if a trade deal is eventually inked.上海419品茶微信

Bilateral trade ties that increasingly look like the only bond connecting the two countries now should be valued and mad

e the ballast for promoting Sino-US relations, instead of being made a tool to champion American interests. As Xi said, c

ooperation brings benefits for both countries while conflict incurs losses on both sides.

opean and American Studies, China Center for International Economic Exchanges

The views don’t necessarily represent those of China Daily.

President Xi Jinping’s meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Osaka las

t week produced a number of consensuses, with both sides agreeing to build Sino-Japanese relations by meeting the

needs of a new era so they can jointly safeguard world peace and promote common development.

The thawing of Sino-Japanese relations last year-after Premier Li Keqiang visited Japan in May and Abe visited China in Oct

ober-was partly due to the rise of unilateralism and protectionism in some parts of the world and the urgent n

eed to oppose them. And since ensuring a free and fair trade order is a shared goal of

the world’s second-and third-largest economies, they need to make greater efforts to realize that goal.

Limiting the spirit of open scientific research by monitoring Chinese students and scientis

上海419ts can only suppress the progress in science in the United States, academics said recently.

The FBI is urging universities to monitor some of their Chinese students and scholars in the country. According to a report on Na

tional Public Radio, US intelligence agencies are encouraging US research universities to develop pr上海419

otocols for monitoring students and visiting scholars from Chinese State-affiliated research institutions.

Since last year, FBI officials have visited at least 10 members of the Association of American Universitie上海419品茶微信

s, a group of 62 research universities, with an unclassified list of Chinese research institutions and companies, the report said.

“We are being asked what processes are in place to know what labs they are working at or what inform上海419

ation they are being exposed to,” Fred Cate, vice-president of research at Indiana University, told NPR. “It’s not a question of j

上海419品茶微信ust looking for suspicious behavior-it’s actually really targeting specific countries and the people from those countries.”

A series of actions over the past few years has heightened concerns among Chinese and Chinese Amer

ican scholars, including the arrest of China-born scientists, the firing of several others and clo

sure of their labs, frequent calls from the FBI and visits to many individuals without any charge and a tightened visa process.上海419品茶微信

In a panel discussion at the China Institute in New York on June 27, Chinese A

merican scientists agreed that the freedom of scientific research in the US faces serious challenges.

“This is a challenging time for US-China relations,” said Fred Yan, president of the Chinese Association for Science and Technology, USA.上海419品茶微信

“China is perceived to be in contention with the US for global dominance. Whether it’s t

rue or not, we Chinese Americans and Chinese students who are legally here are caught in between,” he said.

Xi Xiaoxing, a physics professor at Temple University, said he believes limitin

g the spirit of open scientific research can only suppress the progress of science in the US.

Four years ago, Xi was accused by the State Department of sharing a US company’s technology with China. The charges were dropped after a few months.

I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chin

inese-imposed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in ou

r aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposing 25 percent tariffs

on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with t

ariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June 1.

“Because of the tariff discussion going on in Washi
