 said another cut in the reserve requirement ratio — which wi

“As the United States Federal Reserve will probably gradually cut interest r

ates and domestic inflationary pressure may ease, China’s monetary policy options are exp上海乌托邦品茶微信

ected to further broaden,” said Cheng Shi, chief economist of ICBC International.

上海乌托邦To support financial reforms, the People’s Bank of China — the cent

ral bank — may refrain from broad-based easing but adopt more structural tools in the

coming months, such as targeted reserve cuts to boost lending to small businesses, Cheng said.上海乌托邦品茶微信

On the fiscal side, policies facilitating debt financing of infrastructure projects may be stepped up, he added.

The country has set a 2.15-trillion-yuan ($312.4 billion) spe

cial local government bond issuance quota to help finance infrastructure projects.

Iris Pang, director of ING in China, said policymakers may even

上海乌托邦roughly double the fiscal stimulus for infrastructure projects to 4 trillion yuan.

This will offset the expected reduction in exports and related supply-chain reloc上海乌托邦

ation activities, securing the GDP growth rate for the second half at 6.3 percent.

JPMorgan’s Zhu said the economy may slow a bit in the second half but ma

Xue Yi, a finance professor at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing

, said the debut of the Nasdaq-style tech-heavy STAR Market will also lend support to the economy.

“In the second half, the much-anticipated new board is expected to raise public interest i

China broke into the 上海乌托邦rld’s innovative econo

conomies, jumping from 22nd in 2017 to the 17th last year, according to the Global Innovation Index 2018, published by Cornell U

niversity, the World Intellectual Property Organization and INSEAD, a global business graduate school. 上海乌托邦品茶微信

Pan said these achievements are manifestations of China’s growing technol

 上海乌托邦ogical capability, fueled by the desire to use innovations to push socioeconomic progress.

This, however, has led to some Western countries, such as the US, fearing that China’s scientific and te

chnological rise will challenge their global position. “This sentiment is understandable, but misguided,” he said.

“China is still a developing country, lacking a base and accumulation of innovation capability compared with the US, as w 上海乌托邦品茶微信

ell as drastically different national conditions,” Pan said. “This means we cannot follow the deve

 上海乌托邦lopmental path that the West expects us to take, and we have to forge our own path one step at a time.

“But now the US is treating China like a developed country capable of challenging its global dominance, it is holding China to sta

ndards that we cannot meet for the time being, and it makes accusations against us if we don’t,” he said.

As of late May, the US Department of Commerce had placed more t 上海乌托邦品茶微信

han 140 entities from the Chinese mainland on its Entity List, a ledger of firms legally pro

 上海乌托邦hibited to trade with the US, on the basis of an alleged threat to US national security and interests.

In June, five entities were added to the list: Chinese supercomputer manufacturers and institutions including Sug

on, Higon and the Wuxi Jiangnan Institute of Computing Technology, the chipmaker for China’s most powerful sup

ercomputer, Sunway TaihuLight, which also ranked as the third most powerful globally. 上海乌托邦

The United States also is targeting Chinese scholars and students b

y closing their labs or denying visas to visit the US over alleged spying dangers. In May, Emo

 上海乌托邦品茶微信ry University in Atlanta fired neuroscientists Li Xiao­jiang and his wife, Li Shihua, both US citizens who had worked

at Emory for more than two decades, accusing them of hiding funding and ties to institutions in China.

“These actions are antithetical to the US’ immigrant roots and inte 上海乌托邦

rests, and will impede global scientific exchange and progress,” Pan said.

The Tibetan Tubo regim上海乌托邦ate contemporary

Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro

ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦

According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event

上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo

rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.

“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦

During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l

上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.

Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes-with Ca

ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信

hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.

“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦

form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”

Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr

上海乌托邦品茶微信ough its kaleidoscopic variety of exhibits, spanning from sancai, the three-color glazed

earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo

ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid

er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine-all made of gold-all de

monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.

Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p

ieces depicting celestial deities playing Chinese lutes remind visitors of the popularity of music at that ti

上海乌托邦me, while an arched plaque also tells people of the Tubo people’s admiration for the phoenix.

The daily life of the Tubo people is portrayed through a hunting s

cene on painted lacquer arrow quiver, a child’s silk garment and horse-riding gear.上海乌托邦品茶微信

“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ

ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”

Students to be vital cogs in travel sectordents born betwe

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th

e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.

Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are

limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud

y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b

tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e

ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.
