In January P Global 上海千花网tings, a companyet for

wholly-owned by the leading global ratings firm, was granted access into China’s interba

上海千花网nk bond market for all forms of credit rating businesses, covering financial institution bonds, non-fin

ancial corporate debt financing instruments, structured products and offshore bonds.上海千花网女神会所

According to the PBOC, introducing international credit rating agencies to conduct ratings in China is conducive to meeti

上海千花网ng the diverse needs of international investors and improving the quality of China’s rating industry.

The PBOC said it would, together with the country‘s securities regulato

r, promote wider opening-up in the ratings sector by allowing more qualified foreign-funded ra

ting agencies to develop businesses in China’s inter-bank and exchange bond market.上海千花网

上海千花网女神会所Giving the green light to foreign-funded institutions to obtain type-A major underwritin

g licenses in the inter-bank bond market was also among the new opening-up measures.

In recent years, China’s bond market has seen significant growth in both the number of foreign issuers and the amou

nt of foreign investment, while the number of foreign intermediaries has continued to grow.上海千花网

As of now, a total of six foreign-funded banks have obtained type-B qualifications for major

上海千花网女神会所underwriting and underwriting business of non-financial enterprise debt financing instruments.

The permission for type-A major underwriting business will help enri上海千花网

ch the means for foreign institutions to serve China’s real economy, while intro

ducing more overseas investment demand for domestic enterprises’ bond financing, a PBOC official said.

China will facilitate foreign institutional investors in investing in the inter-bank bond m上海千花网女神会所

arket, which was included in the new measures to optimize the opening-up of the financial sector.

“In order to achieve this, it is necessary to integrate policies and requirements regardin

上海千花网g different open channels and link up accounts of bond and capital,” said the official.

By satisfying the differentiated needs of investors, the measure will improve the convenience for foreign investors to invest in the上海千花网女神会所

market, which reflects the high-level opening-up required for the financial market, the official added.

Legions of volunteers 上海419 at Beijing expo

Around 4,000 university students have provided or will provide professional s

ervices to visitors on a volunteer basis at the ongoing International Horticultural Exhi上海419

bition in Beijing’s Yanqing district during their summer break, Beijing Youth Daily reported.

上海419品茶微信These students from Beijing and Zhangjiakou, North China’s Hebei province, do th

eir work in groups at the Beijing expo, where temperatures can easily exceed 30 C during the summer.

Volunteers have little time to spend under the umbrellas, and keep busy giving directions to visitors under the sun. Wh上海419品茶微信

en it rains, they line up on both sides of the road to lead tourists to the nearest cover.

上海419Zhao Yihan worked as a hostess. She and her partner held a 10-hour post split into two

shifts every day. Standing in the scorching sun, volunteers need to make sure their p上海419品茶微信

osture and manner of speaking present the image of volunteers in the best possible way.上海419

“The happiest moment for me every day is to give answers to tou

上海419rists’ questions.” Zhao said. It makes her feel her hard work is worth it, she added.

For indoor volunteers who work in pavilions, walking 30,000 steps a day is not unheard of. Many have become exc

That all four have be上海乌托邦head their respective in

e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa

rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog

ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats were both rejected by some EU member states.

The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦

es in the European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad

opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has

上海乌托邦品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig

ned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.

The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh

ile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con

flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans hav上海乌托邦品茶微信

e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.

Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU

上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro

pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.

Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦

and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur

opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信

support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

Constitutional revision 上海419论坛for Abeime Minister S

The election to Japan’s upper house on Sunday has acquired added significance because the result would be critical to the ruli

 上海419论坛ng Liberal Democratic Party’s attempts to amend the country’s pacifist Constitution.

Constitutional amendment, the amendment to Article 9 in particular, has been a controversial 上海419论坛

issue in Japan since the end of World War II. Article 9 renounces war, and notes that the proh

 上海419论坛品茶微信ibition on the use of force by Japan is a clear constitutional rule that the Japanese government has to follow. It also

prohibits the maintenance of armed forces and denies Japan the right of “belligerency”. 上海419论坛

And it is precisely to change Article 9-which would allow Japan to have a regular military and be

come a normal country-that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made constitutional amendment his goal. 上海419论坛

But Abe should realize that amending the Constitution is no small feat beca

 上海419论坛品茶微信use for that, the ruling coalition of the LDP and Komeito has to have a two-thirds ma

jority in both houses of parliament, and then win an absolute majority of votes in a ref

erendum. Several attempts have been made to amend the Constitution, but none has been successful. 上海419论坛

Abe should also know that the ruling LDP’s coalition

 上海419论坛品茶微信artner Komeito is a conservative party which is skeptical about amending Article 9.

Differences among political parties, even within o

ne party, have made it almost impossible for the LDP to amend the Constitution. 上海419论坛

For example, there are diverse voices on constitutional amendment within the Abe-led LDP. While some support rev

ising the pacifist Constitution to allow Japan to have a regular military, others say the Japa 上海419论坛品茶微信

n Self-Defense Forces, which has constitutional sanction, should be strengthened to the level of a full-fledged military.

 上海419论坛品茶微信The LDP and Nippon Ishin no Kai are in favor of a constitutional amendment. But the Constitutional Democratic Party of J

apan, Democratic Party for the People, and the Japanese Communist Party strongly oppose the idea.

A 2015 report by Brookin上海千花网olars Stuart Butler an

 Jonathan Grabinsky stated that while racial segregation has been declining over the last

50 years in the larger metropolitan areas, there are exceptions to this rule, one of which is Washington. It s上海千花网

aid “there remains a stark, persistent, white-black racial divide” from the rate of poverty to the level of education.

上海千花网Rice can also compare notes with her current colleagues, such as Derek

Hyra, an associate professor at the American University, where Rice is now a disting上海千花网女神会所

uished visiting research fellow in its School of International Service. I cherish my chat with Hyra on the racial issue two y

上海千花网ears ago in Washington and learned a lot from his book, Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City.

Rice may call me biased if I share my observations on the racial issue after living and working in

Washington for five years. But fellow journalists have covered extensively the racial segregation in Washington.上海千花网女神会所

Responding to Washington’s latest threat to impose additional tariffs on another $325

billion of Chinese exports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry called on Washin上海千花网

gton to show “determination and perseverance” and work with Beijing to find a way out of the current impasse.

上海千花网女神会所Washington says the two sides still have a long way to go before they can conclude a trade deal, but a

s the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

The question that the two sides now have to answer is what that first step is to be to get the stalled trade negotiations moving again.上海千花网

In recent remarks on the trade talks, US officials claim Washington is not in a hurry, and a quality deal is all that matters.

Aaron Wiener, a veteran reporter at the Washington City Paper, descr

上海千花网女神会所ibed Washington as the sixth most segregated city. “DC remains wildly segregated, with an ove

rwhelming white majority west of Rock Creek Park and an overwhelming black majority east of the Anacostia River … DC

‘s racial divide is evident to anyone who’s spent time in the city. It shows up in every facet of District life, including vot上海千花网女神会所

ing patterns, home purchase, and school choice,” Wiener wrote in an article.

Senator Bernie Sanders, during his campaign for the 2020 US presidential election, made it a priority to repair the US上海千花网

public education system and end school segregation and racial discrimination against students.

Rice would do better to devote time to such campaigns and fix the racial p上海千花网女神会所

roblems rather than distracting public attention by making a fuss over Zhao’s tweet.

To safeguard drug inspe 上海419tal rights and to en

ation disclosure are the underlying reasons why some market players chose to cross the line frequently, Lian said. The m

echanism will improve the efficiency of inspection, promote fair competition and reduce transaction costs. 上海419品茶微信

The country also encouraged the applications of the Internet Plus model and

 上海419technologies such as big data to regulate over acts of bad faith more effectively.

The State Council issued a circular on July 18 outlining measures to form professional drug

-inspection teams, as part of efforts to strengthen drug supervision and guarantee drug safety. 上海419品茶微信

According to the circular, drug inspectors will be recognized by drug authoriti

 上海419es and authorized to conduct compliance verification and risk judgment on places where drugs are develop

ed and produced, as well as ensure that drugs are produced in accordance with laws and regulations.

The drug teams will be established by 2020 at both national a

 上海419品茶微信
nd provincial levels, the circular said, with an emphasis on high-risk drugs like vaccines.

The circular also determined the division of power and responsibilities for both teams.

Drug-inspection teams under the State Council drug regulatory department will be responsible for on

site inspections on the research and development of drugs, medical equipment, and cosmetics for special use. 上海419品茶微信

These teams will also be responsible for overseas ins 上海419

pections and targeted inspections of drugs, medical equipment and cosmetics.

 上海419品茶微信
Provincial teams will meanwhile conduct onsite inspections on the production of drugs, medical equipment, and cos

metics. They will also inspect pharmaceutical wholesale enterprises, headquarters of retail chains, as well as thir

d-party online sales platforms, and provide guidance for regulatory departments at county level.

Rules and process specifications for drug inspection should be further improved, and a national unified database and informat 上海419品茶微信

ion platform should be established for drug inspectors at different levels to share information.
