Minister General Wei Fenghe speaks at the Shangri-La Dialo

The People’s Liberation Army will adamantly support regional and world peace, but will not be

“bullied or preyed upon” by foreign powers into giving up national sovereignty and legitimate int

erests, State Councilor and Defense Minister General Wei Fenghe said on Sunday in Singapore.

Experts said Wei’s speech at the Shangri-La Dialogue, a key defense summ

it, marked a milestone in Chinese military diplomacy as Wei showcased the PLA’s confide

nce, positions on key issues and its sincerity and willingness to exchange and cooperate with other countries.

It is the first time in eight years that a Chinese defense minister has participated in the event.

Building a community with a shared future for mankind is the right path forward an

Lu told a Foreign Ministry news briefing that China has reiterated that it

s door is always open, but negotiations must be meaningful and conducted with sincerity.

“A mutually beneficial deal must be based on mutual respect, equality and win-win outcomes,” he said.

The US, out of political purposes, has used its state power to groundlessly suppress Chinese te

ch firms, which has severely affected the global development and cooperation in science and technology, he said.

It has also damaged the interests of businesses of relevant countri

es and will not win the approval and support of the international society, he added.

“Apparently it will not help create a good atmosphere for the negotiations,” he said.

Also, these new first-tier cities have preferential po

policies for residence permits and financial incentives to lure more talent.

For example, Zhenjiang in Jiangsu province, promised bonuses of 150,000 and 200,000 yuan for house purchases to gradua

Haikou, capital of Hainan province, is attracting college students with a monthly rent s

Employment, especially some groups such as college gradu

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satellite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China Meteo

rological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

For example, in March, China provided a remote-sensing monitor repo

rt on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and ter

rain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun serie

They acted fast and opened the museum after three months’ preparation.

The world’s first museum of broken relationships was founded in Croatia in 2006 by two artists, who

ended their four-year relationship and got the idea of setting up a museum to house their leftover personal items.

China’s consumer inflation quickens tosumer price ind

China’s consumer price index (CPI), the main gauge of inflation, gr

ew 2.5 percent year-on-year in April, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Thursday.

The reading, in line with market expectations, accelerated from the 2.3 percent gain in March and 1.5 percent in Febru

ary. On a monthly basis, consumer prices edged up 0.1 percent, compared with the 0.4 percent drop seen a month earlier.

NBS official Dong Yaxiu attributed the rise to higher prices of vegetables, pork and fruit, which ros

e 17.4 percent, 14.4 percent and 11.9 percent, respectively, from the same period last year due to tighter supplies.

Food prices, which account for nearly one-third of weighting in China’s CPI, went up 6.1 percent year-on-year.

Meanwhile, China’s producer price index (PPI), which measures inflation at the factory gates, rose

0.9 percent year-on-year last month, up from the 0.4 percent gain in March that showed improving market demand.
