Local governments told to provide accurate information to authorities
Authorities have found a series of problems上海419论坛女神会所
while carrying out the third national land survey, warning local gover
nments and natural resource departments to fulfill their responsibilities.
上海419论坛The problems were outlined on Friday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the central
government supervision team, and involved 20 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions.
In Qinghai province, for example, local natural resources department and sup上海419论坛
ervisory teams were blamed for not taking the field surveys seriously, nor did they urg
e that uncovered problems be corrected in accordance with rules and regulations.
In Yulin, Shaanxi province, entities did not fully carr上海419论坛女神会所
y out the investigation responsibly, resulting in imprecise
outcomes, and county-level authorities deliberately changed and forged mapping data.
“Those cases reflected problems, such as poor quality surveys a上海419论坛nd data accuracy. I hope that will be a w
arning for future work,” said Wang Guanghua, vice-minister of natural resources.
He said the ministry will not tolerate the forging of data.上海419论坛女神会所

by the State Council, aiming to thoroughly check the status of the country’s l

The SAR government, in a statement issued at around 6 pm on Sunday, said Hong Kong will descend to a d

Hong Kong saw two very different crowds on Saturday afternoon. On was made up of 90,000 people who assembled peacefully in Victoria Park in Causeway Bay.上海419论坛
Observers called the peaceful, positive rally, the third of its type since mid-June, the silent majority’s answer to the radica
lism and violence mounted by protesters who have repeatedly thrown the city into chaos. Two earlier rallies saw a
上海419论坛女神会所bout 480,000 people voicing their shared aspirations of restoring peace and harmony to the city.
The damp lawns of Victoria Park were packed with participants. At one point in the pub
lic rally, youngsters took the stage to remove their masks to reveal their identities in stark contrast to masked radicals.上海419论坛
Emma Chan Ming-kwan took her 13-year-old son to the rally in hopes of teaching him “to tell right from wrong”.
“Biased school education and media reports have failed to warn youngsters about the consequences of violence,” she said.
上海419论坛女神会所A 46-year-old Hong Kong resident of Italian origin who gave his name as Renato said he attended to support Hong Kon

At about the same time in the Kowloon Peninsula, one of the city’s busiest business dist上海419论坛

The owner of a stationary shop in Sheung Wan, surnamed Lam, said the violence had grossly affected the business.
“I didn’t and wouldn’t dare to open the shop yesterday for the whole day,” Lam told China Daily.
上海419论坛Lam’s concerns and fears were shared by the owner of another dried seafood shop, surna

Efforts will be made to further streamline administration and delegate powe上海419论坛

The document outlined 12 major tasks of reform in five areas.

The Internet of Things and big data will be used to enable real-time evaluation of fire risks and precise oversight.

The names of six new pilot free trade zones, which have completed the approv

The accelerated launch of a new batch of pilot free trade zones shows China’s determinatio

上海419论坛Industry analysis shows the new pilot free trade zones may come from six out of eig

China Securities Journal reported the above provinces and autonomous regions have all applied to build pilot free trade zones. S上海419论坛

Xiamen International Cruise Home Port in East China’s Fujian province has registered a record

The southern building which used to be Sanlu Plant’s production area now serves a space for the high-end customization and in

Yongyuan park will focus on the development of intangible cultural heritage. It was set up to
allow inheritors to work with designers and find ways to blend the traditional arts more seamlessly into public life.
上海419论坛品茶微信So far, many inheritors are confined to limited development space, says Li.
The cultural product concept falls behind the times and is separated from modern design and sales, he adds.

The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma
n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛
r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,
上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.
This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth
er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛
man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people
上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.
As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji
ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所
cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.
vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin
jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所
ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.
上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi
t Xinjiang, but what they came up with are distorted versions of the situation, twisted history and pre
judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛
Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of
supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛
There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive
behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li
nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th
e Cold War, the US devised a so-called Xinjiang policy to boost its Central Asia strategy and new global strategy, one
of whose major objectives is to weaken, contain and attempt to disintegrate China.
Since the pilot park was established in 2016, the Chinese government

anging from wildlife monitoring to community training and nature watch projects.
“The station’s monitoring work mainly focuses on snow leopards. If the number of snow leopar上海419论坛女神会所
ds is stable, it means the quality of the pastures and environment here is good,” said Liu Xinnong, a stu

“Monitoring efforts in recent years have contributed to the lack of data on wildlife in th

A major exhibition examining the pivotal role played by the Tibetan Tubo regime in the S上海419论坛
ilk Road era is breaking new ground, Wang Kaihao reports in Dunhuang.
上海419论坛女神会所When you mention the ancient Silk Road to most people, they usually think of the Eurasian trade routes spreading from Chang’an, today’
s Xi’an and the capital of Shaanxi province, toward Central Asia out through the deserts of Northwest China.
Dunhuang, Gansu province, served as a pivotal crossroads on this networ上海419论坛女神会所
k of routes for over a millennium. It’s also an ideal place to gain an insight into the pros
perity that those trade routes brought when you visit the nearby Mogao Grottoes. This complex of hundreds of cav上海419论坛
es features a host of exquisite statues and murals in a mix of artistic styles from a diverse range of civilizations.
A major new exhibition of cultural relics held in Dunhuang will remind visitors that the Silk Road extended t上海419论坛女神会所
o a much wider area than first believed, covering the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and all the way up to the Himalayas.
This is the story being told through the 120 or so artifacts on loan from 30 instituti上海419论坛

The area has prioritized environmental conservation before economic deve
