Now that the SAR government has called time on the amendment bill, it can turn its attention to the most important mat

上海千花网Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen and other secessionists on the island ma
y feel exhilarated about the US State Department on Monday approving the pot
ential sale to Taiwan of $2.2 billion in arms, considering the move to be a sign that they will be able to count on the U上海千花网品茶微信
nited States for help should there be a military confrontation with the Chinese mainland.
And for those in the US who consider Taiwan as a pawn the US can use上海千花网
in its competition with China, the sale of arms represents not only a profitable deal, but also
a hedge to maintain the status quo in which they can regard Taiwan as an independent entity.上海千花网品茶微信
Tsai and her followers should know that their exhilaration is nothing but whistling past the
graveyard. The more arms the island buys from the US, the less safe the island becomes as efforts to bu上海千花网
ild up the island’s military capabilities only serve to send a clear message of secessionism to the mainland.
Tsai and her followers should not underestimate the mainland’s resolve to defend the nation’s sovereignty and territ
orial integrity. The farther the island moves away from the possible peaceful reunion w
ith its motherland, the more resolute the mainland will become to take the island back by force.
By building up its military defense, Tsai is playing a game of brinkmanship.
Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub
With its modern industrial system, Tianhe district in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信
rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become an
international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t
上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation.
Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove
rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信
By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj
上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city
‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis
trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网
eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.
上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen
t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.
More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网
sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go
上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.
With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c
alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信
llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr
eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di
strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信
As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie
s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u
p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信
Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent
of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.
By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent
erprises, as well as more than 50,000 science and technology enterprises.

and the country’s regulators are looking at ways to further liberalize its potential.
Immediately after the three-day Dragon Boat Festival at the beginning of June, during which, according to China’s Ministry of C上海千花网
ulture and Tourism, Chinese tourists spent 39.3 billion yuan ($5.72 billion) on domestic travel, the country’s sav

上海千花网品茶微信washing liquid value deal on Tmall, one of the country’s biggest e-commerce platforms.
She said the sales day was not just about saving money, but also about en
joying better products. “For example, wet toilet tissue is quite expensive if you buy it in
the supermarket one pack at a time, but it is much more affordable during the sales day if you buy in bulk,” she said.上海千花网
Consumers like Hong, who have a strong willingness to spend to make their lives easier, are adding
impetus to national consumption, which achieved an eye-catching performance in the first quarter of上海千花网品茶微信

Nielsen’s report said that in the first quarter, China’s consumer trend index, which measures perceptions of local job pr
