ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko
上海419品茶微信wloon and the New Territories and said that police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.
The HKSAR said on Saturday that protesters who breach the law should be brought to justice, while the police reiter上海419
ated on early Sunday that anyone participating in an unauthorized assembly will be committing an offence.
A large group of protesters gathered in Tai Po on Friday although their request of such an event had been turned down by the police.
上海419品茶微信They damaged public properties and blocked thoroughfares including the K
owloon entrance of the Cross-Harbor Tunnel, and they also set fires in various places.
According to the police, some protesters aimed laser beams at police officers and some even hurled objects and stones at police officers.
After repeated warnin上海419gs, the police dispersed the protesters, sometime using tear gas when necessary.
During the operation, HKSAR police arrested 16 people for unlawful assembly, possession of offe
上海419nsive weapon, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of duties.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r
ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch上海419品茶微信
ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.
The IMF said that the country’s external position in 2018 was “broadly in li
上海419ne with the level consistent with medium-term fundamentals and desirable policies”.
The organization also welcomed China’s efforts to reform its exchange rate regime to make the yuan more fle
xible, according to its report released after its latest Article IV consultation with China that concluded on July 31.上海419品茶微信
The clarification by the IMF indicates that the US Treasury’s reckless claim on Mon
day of China engaging in currency manipulation is nothing but unfounded finger-pointing.
The latest report by International Monetary Fund (IMF) conclude
上海419d that the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan was “broadly in line with medium-term f
undamentals”, and the Chinese monetary authority barely intervened in the foreign exchange market.上海419
The report, released late Friday in Washington, was a blow to the lab
eling of China as “a currency manipulator” by the US administration, experts said.
The value of the Chinese currency and the country’s external position i
上海419品茶微信n 2018 were “broadly in line with the level consistent with medium-term fun
damentals and desirable policies,” the report said, citing that China’s current account surplus fell by around 1 pe
rcentage point to 0.4 percent of GDP in 2018 and is projected to remain contained at 0.5 percent of GDP in 2019.
Estimates showed that the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central ban上海419
k, has had “little FX intervention”, said the report, which is based on IMF’s latest Ar
ticle IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.
上海419品茶微信The IMF’s conclusion came in just four days after the US Treasury officially la
beled China as a “currency manipulator” on Monday. The Chinese yuan
weakened to beyond 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade earlier this week.上海419
“The IMF conclusion is objective and reflected that the renminbi was assessed to be broadly
in line with medium-term fundamentals. The result kept pace with what it said in July,” said Zhang Xiaohui, a s
上海419品茶微信enior researcher of the China Finance 40 Forum (CF40), and former assistant governor of the PBOC.
What the IMF concluded is a just decision, reflecting that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, according to Yu Yo
ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant of CF40.

MORE BENEFITS FOR ALL
上海419论坛女神会所While protectionism and fierce global competition for resources have dive
rted some economies’ attention from making a bigger cake to wrestling for a larger slic
e, Xiplomacy staunchly advocates common efforts to create more shared interests and benefits.
“We should forge a global connectivity partnership to achieve common development and prosperity,” Xi said at th上海419论坛
e Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in April. “As long as we work together to help each oth
上海419论坛er, even if thousands of miles apart, we will certainly be able to find a mutually beneficial and win-win road.”
His remarks resonated with many attendees at the event, which was held in Beijing
上海419论坛女神会所and gathered participants from more than 150 countries and 90 international organizations.
Xi proposed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013 and frequently promoted it on multiple i
nternational occasions. The endeavors have borne fruitful results — some 126 countries上海419论坛
and 29 international organizations have signed BRI cooperation documents with China.
From 2013 to 2018, trade between China and other BRI countries surpas
上海419论坛女神会所sed $6 trillion, and China’s investment in BRI countries exceeded $90 billion.

In the first half of this year, retail sales of consumer goods in China
上海后花园女神会所reached 19.5 trillion yuan ($2.83 trillion). Consumption contributed as much as
60.1 percent to the country’s GDP growth and remains the most powerful growth engine.
“Government departments should enhance guidance and policy support, work out more w上海后花园

上海后花园女神会所The meeting said that, in response to the trends in commercial transformation and consumption upgrading, the use of t
