Shanghai has seen a sharp decline in the usage of disposable items such as toothbrushes, combs, razors, nail polis
上海夜网hers, shoe wipers and loofahs in hotels since the city’s first regulation on waste sorting took effect a month ago.
According to the regulation, hotels can only provide such disposable items to guests upon上海夜网女神会所
request. The violation of the rule could result in fines ranging from 500 to 5,000 yuan ($72.6 to $726).
At St. Regis Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, the number
of disposable toothbrushes used in July was 30 percent lower than the usual average.
上海夜网女神会所Campanile Shanghai Jing’an Hotel, which is affiliated to Jin Jiang International Hotels Company, also saw a 30 perc
ent drop in the overall usage of the six items, Xiao Bo, brand executive of Campanile, told the local news portal Eastday.
“Toothpaste and toothbrushes are the most requested items by customers. To reduce waste, we have thre上海夜网
e sizes of toothpaste and offer customers a size according to the duration of their stay,” Xiao told Eastday.
Xiao added that the usage of these six disposable items may be reduced by up to 80 perc
上海夜网女神会所ent in the near future as waste treatment regulations get introduced to more cities in China.
Meanwhile, the InterContinental Hotels Group on July 30 announced its plan to swap its miniature bathroom amenities to bu
lk-sized ones by 2021 in order to reduce plastic waste. The move will affect its entire hotel estate of 843,000 guest rooms.上海夜网
“It’s a big step in the right direction and will allow us to significantly reduce our waste footpri

Reform will promote innovation. Innovation will generate new demand and prompt Chinese enterprises to impr

Last year, China’s total investment in R&D accounted for 2.18 percent of GDP, equivalent to the average of OECD countries, with the average R&D intensity o
上海会所f high-tech enterprises and A-share listed companies being about 3 percent and 4.87 percent.
Higher R&D investment has increased the enterprises’ capacity for independent innovation and competition advantage.
In particular, since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in November 2012, which for上海会所
mulated the innovation-driven development strategy and five new development concepts, Chinese en
上海会所品茶微信terprises have increased R&D investment and achieved remarkable breakthroughs in core technologies. In
fields as important as aviation, railways and 5G technology, Chinese enterprises have even taken a leading position.
Huawei is a good example of an innovation-driven high-tech Chinese company.上海会所
For years Huawei’s R&D intensity has been above 14 percent. In actual terms, Huawei’s R&D investment las

Over the past two weeks, China’s satellites took photographs of flood-stricken region
s in India. China provided those images, together with previously taken pictures of the same places, to the In 上海千花坊
dian Space Research Organization to assist with the neighboring nation’s recent flood relief efforts.
上海千花坊Vivek Singh, a spokesman for the space research group, told Xinhua on Thursday that India appreciated China’s
help in the disaster-relief efforts and that such mutual assistance was a good example of international cooperation.
上海千花坊As of Sunday, the death toll in India’s flood-hit states had risen to more than 200. At least 11 million people have been directly affected.
The International Charter on Space and Major Disasters is a worldwide collaboration platform, throug
h which satellite data are made available for the benefit of disaster management. It has 61 contributing satellites operated by 17 c 上海千花坊女神会所
harter members, including the European Space Agency and United States Geological Survey.
上海千花坊China signed the charter in May 2007 and first called for assistance under the charter in July of that year when deva
stating floods ravaged central and eastern parts of the country, according to the China National Space Administration.
To date, China has invoked the charter 24 times and obtained a significant amount of satellite d 上海千花坊女神会所
ata for post-disaster relief efforts, according to information published on the charter’s website.
上海千花坊女神会所The most recent time China activated the charter was in June last year when it asked for as
sistance to monitor a serious forest fire in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region.
hina moved up three places to 14th among the world’s most innovative countries this

Mark Cohen, senior fellow at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, said after the forum that “what the presi

上海夜网女神会所”If you are going to say the system I built no longer works so well for me, then you’ll have
to let go a little bit. I think that process hasn’t really been thought through so well in the US,” he said.
Cohen said it’s not as simple as saying every country looks after its
own priorities. “That may be true for a lot of smaller countries. It may be true even for lar上海夜网女神会所

China’s science-technology innovation board, dubbed the STAR Market, opened at the Shanghai Stock Exchange on Mon
上海千花坊day, and officials and analysts said it will help support innovation-driven economic growth and capital market reform.
A series of new systemic arrangements have been introduced in the Nasdaq-style board, such as the registration-based init上海千花坊
ial public offering system, a wider daily price limit and strengthened information disclosure requirements.
上海千花坊女神会所The first 25 companies listed on the board made a strong debut, with an average da
ily increase of 140 percent, possibly because there is no price change limit for the first five trading days. At oth
er A-share markets, there is a 10-percent daily price limit. Shanghai-based integrated circuit maker Anji Mi上海千花坊
croelectronics reported the biggest daily jump of 400 percent to close at 196 yuan ($28.50) per share.
There are over 3 million individual investors qualified to invest in the new board while the n
上海千花坊女神会所umber and scale of listed companies in the STAR Market is relatively small at present, leading to the firs
t-day surge of prices, said Yang Delong, chief economist at Shenzhen-based First Seafront Fund.
Trading rules set by the Shanghai exchange and the China Securities Regulator上海千花坊
y Commission allow for a daily price fluctuation of 20 percent on the STAR Market after the first trading week. B
ut Yang warned investors of the possibility of price drops on the board in the next few days.
Liu Zhongyuan, di上海千花坊女神会所rector of securities investment at the National Council for Social Security Fund, said at the listing cerem

Many parents in Guangxi have had the same worry as Ms. Long. Another Nanning resid上海后花园

Running out of vaccine stock has been a nationwide phenomenon, mainly caused by the insufficient production capability of manu上海后花园
facturers, said an official from the Disease Control and Prevention Center in Guangxi.
Currently there is no sign that the supply and demand gap can be filled in the short term, the official added.上海后花园品茶微信
According to a report from Beijing News, regions including Sichuan, Gansu, Guizhou, Anh

The number of Chinese companies which made it on the Fortune Global 500 reached 129, surpassi

China’s largest State-owned oil and gas company Sinopec Group climbed one spot on Fortune’s Gl上海后花园

The strong results were driven largely by robust domestic demand for gas and chemical products, the report said.
China this year has had one of its best summer harvests in recent years, and an overall good harve
st of grain is likely for the whole year, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Friday.上海后花园
Total grain production for the summer reached nearly 142 billion kilograms, an increase of 2.1 percent com
上海后花园品茶微信pared with last year and the same level as 2017, the year with a historically high summer yie
ld, said Wei Baigang, head of the development and planning department at the ministry.
Meanwhile, grain to be harvested in the fall is growing normally. The sprea上海后花园
d of the crop-eating fall armyworm, a species that entered China from Southeast Asia in Jan
上海后花园品茶微信uary, has decelerated, laying a foundation for an overall good harvest this year, he said.
Despite favorable signs, natural disasters such as drought and flooding, whic
h have seriously affected many areas, pose obstacles for a good fall harvest, which上海后花园
usually accounts for about 75 percent of the total grain production in China, Wei said.
上海后花园”The ministry will not spare any effort to protect crop production for the summer…. It will try its best to guide local au
thorities to prevent and control fall armyworms. It will work with related departments to closely watch fluctuations of d上海后花园品茶微信
rought and flooding, carry out emergency plans in a timely way in case of need and intensify oversight for im

In addition to grains such as wheat and rice, production of other ma
jor agricultural products such as beef, mutto上海后花园n, aquatic products and milk also inc
reased in the first half of the year, resulting in adequate supply and stable prices, he said.
With increased agricultural production, China’s international trade in agricu
