In May and June, the ave娱乐地图hly deficit on forex set

 settlement and sales by banks stood at $6.6 billion, down 44 percent from H2 2018, SAFE data showed.

The reading indicated a relatively good supply-demand situation of the forex market, while monthly fluctuations refl娱乐地图

ected the overall stability of market expectations and the market-oriented adjustment of prices, Wang said.

娱乐地图女神会所According to Wang, China’s forex market showed stable sentiment amid trade frictions with the US and the exchanges bet

ween Chinese and American companies are still very close, which is playing a positive role.

“We are confident to cope with the changing situation and maintain the stability of cross-border capital flows in China,” Wang said.娱乐地图女神会所

A national bankruptcy mechanism is under discussion by policymakers, covering local gover

娱乐地图nments and enterprises, to prevent systemic financial risks, said a senior official with the central bank.

“The key task is to prevent debt default risk,” said Wan Cunzhi, director-general of the PBOC’s Credit Information System Bu

reau, at a news conference on Thursday. He said the mechanism will include inde

bted local governments, while market-oriented measures will be introduced to ease their debt burden.娱乐地图女神会所

Bankruptcy of local governments was rarely mentioned in China before, and the official didn’t re

娱乐地图lease more details on the mechanism. It reflected that policymakers have noticed the potential challe

nges and more measures are expected to strengthen financial stability, analysts said. Total local government deb

t reached 19.9 trillion yuan ($2.89 trillion) by May, according to the Ministry of Finance.娱乐地图女神会所

The State Council released a guideline on Tuesday for building a credit-based market regulation system. The bankruptcy mechanism is one part of the who

娱乐地图le system. Besides local government, individuals and enterprises will also be regulated.

Companies with bad credit records will receive serious punishment

, said Lian Weiliang, deputy head of the National Development and Reform Com娱乐地图女神会所

mission. “For the worst scenario, the companies could be prohibited from the market.”

The measures for rating companies’ credit are being drafted, and market-oriented third-part

y institutions and industry associations will be involved in the rating process, according to Lian.

To safeguard drug inspe 上海419tal rights and to en

ation disclosure are the underlying reasons why some market players chose to cross the line frequently, Lian said. The m

echanism will improve the efficiency of inspection, promote fair competition and reduce transaction costs. 上海419品茶微信

The country also encouraged the applications of the Internet Plus model and

 上海419technologies such as big data to regulate over acts of bad faith more effectively.

The State Council issued a circular on July 18 outlining measures to form professional drug

-inspection teams, as part of efforts to strengthen drug supervision and guarantee drug safety. 上海419品茶微信

According to the circular, drug inspectors will be recognized by drug authoriti

 上海419es and authorized to conduct compliance verification and risk judgment on places where drugs are develop

ed and produced, as well as ensure that drugs are produced in accordance with laws and regulations.

The drug teams will be established by 2020 at both national a

 上海419品茶微信
nd provincial levels, the circular said, with an emphasis on high-risk drugs like vaccines.

The circular also determined the division of power and responsibilities for both teams.

Drug-inspection teams under the State Council drug regulatory department will be responsible for on

site inspections on the research and development of drugs, medical equipment, and cosmetics for special use. 上海419品茶微信

These teams will also be responsible for overseas ins 上海419

pections and targeted inspections of drugs, medical equipment and cosmetics.

 上海419品茶微信
Provincial teams will meanwhile conduct onsite inspections on the production of drugs, medical equipment, and cos

metics. They will also inspect pharmaceutical wholesale enterprises, headquarters of retail chains, as well as thir

d-party online sales platforms, and provide guidance for regulatory departments at county level.

Rules and process specifications for drug inspection should be further improved, and a national unified database and informat 上海419品茶微信

ion platform should be established for drug inspectors at different levels to share information.

ump administration mov上海后花园p more immigrants

The Trump administration on Monday moved to bar almost all immigrants from appl

ying for asylum at the country’s southern border, requiring them to first pursue safe上海后花园女神会所

haven in a third country through which they had traveled on the way to the United States.

上海后花园The Department of Homeland Security, in a statement issued with the Departme

nt of Justice, said the interim rule would set a “new bar” for immigrants “by

placing further restrictions or limitations on eligibility for aliens who seek asylum in the United States.”

The American Civil Liberties Union called the new rule “patently unlawful” and vowed to file a lawsuit.上海后花园女神会所

The rule would make it all but impossible for applicants seeking p

rotection from persecution unless they first apply for asylum in “third count

上海后花园ry” such as Mexico or Guatemala, through which they traveled en route to the United States.

It was just short of a “nuclear option, close to something like shutti

ng down the border,” said Jessica Vaughan from the Center上海后花园女神会所

for Immigration Studies, which supports increased immigration restrictions.

上海后花园uatemala, which both sends migrants the United States and receives Hondurans and Salvadorans passing through, said on Sunday it wo

uld postpone President Jimmy Morales’ visit to Washington to discuss Guatemala’s potential designati

on as a “safe third country” for asylum seekers, stressing it had no plans to sign such an agreement.上海后花园

The proposed changes, set to become official on Tuesday, represent the latest effort by the Trump administration to c

rack down on immigration, the signature issue that helped propel Trump to the Wh上海后花园女神会所

ite House in the 2016 election and one already figuring prominently in the 2020 campaign.

The change 上海后花园would also place an even higher burden on Mexico, w

hich has been somewhat cooperative with US efforts to slow Central American immigration.

Mexico pushed back on Monday, saying asylum-seekers上海后花园女神会所

rejected by the United States should have to go back to their home countries, not Mexico.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcel Ebrard said the new US rule would not unila上海后花园女神会所

terally convert Mexico into a designated “safe third country,” a status that would

oblige it to offer asylum to those who entered its territory en route to the United States.

“Lagarde has excellent pe上海龙凤419MF chief, with a go

good global vision, political foresight, and understanding of international relations,” he said. “She has ac

Wei, also a member of the Academic Committee of the International Mo

上海龙凤419netary Institute of Renmin University of China, said that he also appreciates Lagarde’s ef

forts in making the Chinese currency RMB part of the IMF Special Drawing Rights basket on Oct 1, 2016. It made the R

MB the fifth currency in the basket, joining the US dollar, euro, Japanese yen and British pound.上海龙凤419品茶微信

Edward Tse, founder and CEO of management consultancy Gao Feng Advisory, said that Lagarde’s comp

上海龙凤419rehensive experiences in multilateral institutions would make her a qualified ECB head.

He said that an important part of leading the ECB is balancing the p

olitical interests among eurozone members, so political skills are essential and somet上海龙凤419品茶微信

imes are more important than technical skills. And, in the ECB, there are already many economists to assist her.

“The most important part of leading the ECB is political sensitivity and political coord

上海龙凤419品茶微信ination capacity,” he said. “So EU leaders’ choice of Lagarde is very reasonable.”

He added that the EU’s economy lacks vitality, so whoever is ECB head will find it hard to change the situation.

“If Lagarde gradually solves the current problems with her high political sensitivity, it is already the best scenario,” he said.上海龙凤419

The European Union on Wednesday lowered its forecasts for economic growth next year fo

上海龙凤419品茶微信r both the 19-country eurozone as well as other countries within the bloc, partly due to the United Kingdom’s i

rom 1.2 percent this year to 1.4 percent in 2020, down from a previous estimate of 1.5 percent.上海龙凤419

Tse said that EU’s economy has entered a structural downturn, and in many countries, ma

king short-term adjustments cannot help them achieve rapid economic development.上海龙凤419品茶微信

“Up till now, EU countries haven’t found the means for quic

k economic growth yet, which is different from the situation in China and t

Liu Bingjiang, head of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment’s air quality management department, said at the same fo上海千花坊品茶微信

rum that it is unfair for companies with high operational costs on environmental protection to compete und

上海千花坊er the same market conditions against those investing little into environmental protection.

The authorities will bring in industrial associations to tighten emissions assess

ment on steel producers when granting exemptions from production restrictions, he said.上海千花坊

Those with poor environmental protection records or that scheme to cheat the assessment will be severely punished, he said.

上海千花坊品茶微信Currently, China enforces steel production restrictions in key areas on days forecast to have heavy air pollution, and

roducers with ultra-low carbon emissions are allowed to have lower or no production cuts.

More than 60 steel producers in key areas, with a total crude steel capacity of 260 million上海千花坊

tons, have upgraded to meet ultra-low carbon emission standards, according to Liu.

上海千花坊品茶微信China expects 60 percent (340 million tons) of existing crude steel capacity in key areas

to be made with ultra-low carbon emissions by 2020, according to a ministry guideline released this year.

Li Xinchuang, president of the China Metallurgical Industry Planni

g and Research Institute, said that to achieve low-carbon emissions involves upgrades in上海千花坊

the whole process of steel production, and more attention should be paid to procedures such as raw materials tra

上海千花坊品茶微信nsportation and storage, which often generate emissions that are difficult to contain.

China’s oil and gas industry saw steady growth in 2018, with expansion reported in both pr上海千花坊

oven reserves and annual output, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources on Monday.

In 2018, national exploration of oil and gas saw a total investment of 63.66 billio
