criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.
And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园
tioned remarks from these prominent US political figures belies both those denials, since they have incited
上海后花园Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with both the SAR government and the central government.
If the increasing violent acts employed by the Hong Kong demonstrators are still being categorized as p上海后花园女神会所
eaceful calls for democracy by these US politicians and others, what happened in Hong Kong in the pa
st weeks has shown people around the world the ugly and violent side of Western-style democracy.
Here is what rioters have done in Hong Kong in the name of upholding democracy上海后花园
They have repeatedly occupied public spaces to stage illegal demonstrations, they have blocked roads and h
ijacked subway carriages so that people cannot go to work, they have attacked police officers, police stations and pol
上海后花园女神会所ice family quarters, even passers-by, and they have stormed the airport forcing it to shut down three times so far this month.
The Hong Kong police have done what they are supposed to do, which is enforce the law, fight crimes and uphold social order.
Yet by turning a blind eye to the iron-clad evidence of what is happening in the SAR, some polit上海后花园
icians in the US have criticized the Hong Kong police claiming they have used excessive force. One only has to re
call the police actions in Ferguson in the US and in Paris, France, to see how restrained the Hong Kong police have bee上海后花园女神会所
n. But using a double standard in this way has become typical US behavior. Anti-China forces in the West should not un
derestimate China’s determination to safeguard stability and prosperity in Hong Kong. Nor should they un上海后花园
derestimate China’s capability to defend its territorial sovereignty and security.
Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an

上海龙凤1314品茶微信Besides refraining from competitively depreciating its own currency, China has also b

President Xi Jinping announced at the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing in April tha上海龙凤1314
t China will more effectively engage in international macro-economic policy coordination, including more improve

According to the IMF news release on Friday, its executive directors agreed that grea

markets would help China’s financial system be more capable of dealing with capital flow volatility.
Chen Yuan, chairman of the CF40 Executive Council and former上海龙凤1314

Chen suggested increasing yuan-denominated settlements in global comm上海龙凤1314品茶微信

Zhou Xiaochuan, chairman of the China Institute of Finance and a former c

China’s Yutu 2 lunar rover has entered its eighth period of dormancy on the moon’s far side and is in上海千花坊

上海千花坊女神会所In a statement sent to China Daily on Thursday, the administration said the rover, China’s second
movable robot on the moon after Yutu, was switched to dormant mode at around 5:50 pm on W

Before its dormancy, the machine had traveled 271 meters on the lunar surface, more than dou

The administration said that on the lunar day that just ended, Yutu 2 and Chang’e 4’s lander, wh

上海千花网Li Chao, chief economist at Huatai Securities, said that the July readin

The stable inflation level will not have a significant bearing on monetary policymaking, said Liu of CUFE.
上海千花网But Liu also warned that policymakers should closely monitor the food
price changes and ensure stable food supplies to iron out major price fluctuations.上海千花网
The producer price index, which measures factory-gate prices and co

The fall reflects the easing of GDP growth, which slowed to 6.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter.
上海千花网女神会所”The fall is in line with market expectations,” said Zhu Jianfang and Liu Boyang, economists at CITIC Securities. The c
