Barbey, 78, says he saw former premier Zhou Enlai many times (during the 1973 visit). “The trip by t
he French president lasted for five or six days, and Zhou was with the delegation every day for reasons of protocol.”上海419品茶微信
Barbey recalls that whenever Pompidou visited Beijing, Shanghai or Datong in Shanxi prov
上海419ince, where the French president traveled to see archaeological sites, he saw Zhou every day.
“Zhou is a special figure to the French people. He spent some years in France as a young m
an, among the generation of Chinese students who came to the country on a study-work program.”上海419
Barbey remembers asking Zhou’s interpreter, a woman in her mid-50s, how many French
上海419interpreters of her caliber were there in China－and she answered there was “about 11”. When he vis
ited Shanghai, he was told that there were only three French people living in the city.上海419品茶微信
One of the most iconic photos Barbey took from the 1973 visit is a portrait of Zhou when he
accompanied Pompidou on a boat trip around the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.
上海419The image is not included in the show at the National Art Museum, but a portrait of another i
mportant figure who had a connection with France－a snapshot of Ba Jin sunbathing in 1980－is on display. Th上海419
e prominent Chinese author also studied in France for two years during the late 1920s.
“I met him very briefly in Shanghai at his house. He still spoke French,” says Barbey.上海419
The warm tones and sharpness of Barbey’s imagery also pres
上海419品茶微信erve the vibrant details of people’s everyday lives at a time when taking photos remained a lux
ury for many. Many of the scenes and ways of life have now vanished from the fast-paced metropolis. For example, one pho
to Barbey took in Nanjing shows boats with elongated sails traveling along the Yangtze River, while another photo show上海419
s paddy fields on the outskirts of Shanghai which have now been replaced by high-rise buildings.
Jean Loh, a photography curator and publisher, comments in the Color of China’s foreword: “Beijing, Shanghai, Sichu上海419品茶微信

the ochre red of the imperial palace of the Forbidden City and the morning blue of the Shanghai Bund.”
The government of China’s Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) plans t
o set up an investment and development fund to support the development of the Gua上海千花坊
ngdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the SAR’s chief executive Chui Sai On has said.
上海千花坊女神会所During a question-and-answer session at the SAR Legislative Assembly Th
ursday, Chui told Macao’s legislative members that there were about 49 projects relating to M
acao’s participation in the Greater Bay Area set out in the outline development plan for the Greater Bay Area.
He said Macao’s basic fiscal reserves and surplus reserves amounted to 569.54 billion patacas (about 70.49 billion U.S. doll上海千花坊女神会所
ars), while there was 163.25 billion patacas (about 20.20 billion U.S. dollars) in foreign exchange reserves at the be
inning of 2019, and the government had the financial capability to establish such a fund.
上海千花坊The fund would be set up in the second half of 2019, and would be manag
ed by a government-owned entity operating independently of the current structure of pub
lic administration. It would be run in accordance with market-led and commercial principles, he added.上海千花坊女神会所
The chief executive said it was not only a way for improving returns on publicly-held capital and for the benefit of public fu
上海千花坊nds, but also for realizing policy goals mentioned in the Greater Bay Area outline development plan.
The Greater Bay Area consists of the Hong Kong SAR, the Macao SAR, as well as nine cities in Guangdong上海千花坊
Province — Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing.
上海千花坊女神会所China’s Ministry of Finance (MOF) Saturday announced a favorable tax pol

ies from the treaty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stability of the wo
上海龙凤419品茶微信rld order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Treaty is the US’ latest one
in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US disp
ensation assumed office in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and mechanism上海龙凤419
s, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.
上海龙凤419品茶微信Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving bilateral relations. The actions of the US a
nd Russia have further worsened their relations following their face-off over the Ukraine crisis and the S
yrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both sides in th上海龙凤419
e Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means their ta
ctical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.
上海龙凤419品茶微信Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarmam
ent process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev上海龙凤419
elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.
Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now
上海龙凤419品茶微信deploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuel
ling an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major
powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.上海龙凤419
What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discu
ssions on certain international issues regardless of whether it is a party to such issues. Re上海龙凤419品茶微信
garding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving international
relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and therefore re
上海龙凤419品茶微信mains very much relevant and significant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the US’ u
nilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.
nt mechanism will be established to guide and encourage residents to separate their waste.
The comprehensive coverage pattern of domestic waste classification has taken shape, and上海千花网女神会所
more than 70 percent of residential areas achieve the set waste-classification standard.
上海千花网Shanghai has simultaneously followed the construction period of nine domestic garbage treatm
ent projects and accelerated work on three organic garbage projects and four other garbage projects.
By the end of 2019, the other garbage incineration capacity will reach上海千花网
19,300 tons per day and organic garbage capacity will reach 5,500 tons per day.
上海千花网女神会所Adhering to the four categories method and forming the Shanghai model
Shanghai’s waste classification standard has changed many times.
Today the city’s standard is set to the aforementioned four categories of waste.上海千花网
Regulations on this standard clearly categorize the whole process: units and individuals sh
ould be classified at source; property companies should be classified and transferred; receiving enterprises sh上海千花网女神会所
ould be classified and transported; and the final disposal enterprises should be classified and disposed.
上海千花网Clarifying the purpose of the four categories establishes a social responsibi
lity system so that garbage producers, government departments, managers, collection, transportation and dis
posal units and social organizations can perform their duties and responsibilities.上海千花网女神会所
This is all with the goal of putting in place the Shanghai model of Chinese domestic waste classification.
Forming a system based on the rule of law上海千花网
Shanghai in 2000 became China’s first pilot for municipal solid waste classification.上海千花网女神会所
To ensure the pilot’s success, the Shanghai Municipal Government in 2014 issued ten policies and documents.
Laws and regulations are obviously crucial to any waste management system, and on July
d in incorporating garbage classification into the rule of law.
上海419品茶微信The regulations for example say that people can be fined up to 2,00
0 yuan for mixed garbage and 50,000 yuan for mixed transportation by units.
The regulations also hold that disposable cups and utensils cannot be used in the Shanghai Party internal office and 上海419government organs.
Hotels will no longer provide disposable household necessities or they’ll
上海419品茶微信be fined at least 500 yuan and less than 5,000 yuan. Caterers cannot provide disposable tab
leware – if they do and fail to make corrections within a time limit, they will be fined the same amount. 上海419
Editor’s note: Japan has restricted the exports of three highly specialized products needed to make sem

Officials said SSGKC’s importance continues to grow, and the iconic project for Sino上海夜生活

上海夜生活女神会所Situated at the heart of Pearl River Delta Region and in a massive greenfield site in the s

At a total site area of 123 square kilometers, it is being developed in a series of phases over the 15-20 years starting from 2010.
上海夜生活女神会所The officials added that both the Chinese and Singaporean governments have agreed
to deepen their collaboration in terms of scientific innovation, intellectual property rights, financial se

Part of their collaborative efforts, the Sino-Singapore Knowledge Forum, was held in Singapore for the first time on Friday.
上海夜生活女神会所The event was a strategic and SSGKC-hosted summit promoting di

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

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

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

Dutch lighting specialist helps advance smart city initiative with lower energy use and reduced operating costs
Ahead of the inaugural China International Import Expo上海夜网
last year, the Bund, Shanghai’s famous waterfront, was given a dramatic face-lift when it was illum
上海夜网女神会所inated along with three bridges and more than 40 buildings in the financial and tourist districts.
Dutch lighting specialist Signify, formerly known as Philips Lighting, was responsible for the illumination. The com
pany said it is the largest, single, architectural lighting project in Signify’s 127-year history and illustrates the co上海夜网
mpany’s leadership in unlocking the potential of connected lighting to transform cities.
“The upgraded lighting system helps demonstrate Shanghai’s cultural heritage in a more vivid
way, creating impressive night scenes in an energy efficient way,” said Eric Rondolat, CEO of Signify.
上海夜网女神会所With more than 44 million connected light points and 6.4 billion e
uros ($7.21 billion) in sales last year, Signify is rated by multiple market agencies including the D
ow Jones Sustainability Index as the top player in conventional lighting, LED and connected lighting.上海夜网
Rondolat said Signify is committed to helping Chinese cities to develop more eco-friendly business and tourist landm
上海夜网女神会所arks by using connected LED lighting to lower energy use and reduce operating costs. The new lighting is expe
cted to save the city 50-70 percent of its annual lighting costs compared to areas using conventional lighting.
Some of Signify’s exhibits during the last CIIE underscored its ambition to help adva上海夜网女神会所

city farms, a newly launched internet of things platform and the Philips Hue, a smart lighting system for homes.

上海后花园品茶微信The US may have relaxed restrictions on Huawei, but that alone is not enough for the Chinese company
to develop its overseas markets. So Huawei can continue to purchase chips and other tech上海后花园
products from US companies to make mobile phones but cannot sell those mobile phones in the US.
Also, the US’ decision to keep Huawei on the Entity List until the concl
上海后花园品茶微信usion of the Sino-US trade negotiations will lead to considerable uncertainty. And the US presi
dential election next year could complicate matters further, as the American public opinion about China,
and the attitudes of the Democratic and the Republican parties could influence the final outcome.上海后花园
The US has relaxed the restrictions on Huawei as a negotiation strategy w
ithout changing its China policy. Since the information and communication te
上海后花园品茶微信chnology sectors of the two countries are still intertwined thanks to economic globalizat

Chinese companies should therefore make greater efforts to intensi上海后花园
