Yi, the PBOC governor, said the current fiscal policy package is strong enough to counter headwinds, even if
the situation gets a little worse, and “a discussion” could be opened if the scenario turns “tremendously worse”.
Looking forward, the unemployment rate, rather than the GDP growth rate, should receive more atte
ntion. “The Chinese economy is presently doing reasonably well, and I don’t worry too mu
ch about the unemployment problem. So long as people still have jobs, it’s not a concern if growth slows slightly. But this ma
tter deserves to be very closely watched, particularly as now trade tensions escalate rapidly,” Huang said.
If trade tensions start to have “bigger impacts” on the economy, he said
nd force low-end manufacturers to move out more rapidly, it might increase the pres

ces sector, especially labor-intensive services, could help mitigate the pressure, he said.
promoting the application of e-buses, by supporting technology innovation, improving fiscal
and taxation policies, enhancing infrastructure construction, as well as reinforcing fund supervision.
“It is estimated that in the future, China’s e-bus market will transform to a more market-driven pattern, instead of policy-driv
en. The market will shift from an incremental market to a stock market, maintaining steady growth,” he said.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance estimates that EVs will attain price parity by the mid 2020s, as lithium battery pric

metric tons of sanitary sewage was collected after the mountaineering season,” said Tashi Gyatso.
According to Nyima Tseringa, the head of the region’s sport
bureau, the Tibet Mountaineering Guide School has been playing an important role in mountain rescue.
“Founded in 1999, it is world’s second and China’s first such school, fo

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.
Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.
He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg
ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.
“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th
e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.
This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co
nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.
Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba

Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,
national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.
“Only a few big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen h
ave strict tobacco control regulations and law enforcement, but in most areas in China suc
h regulations are absent,” he said. “The prevalence of tobacco has caused serious health conseque
lear that if the US treats the Chinese negotiating team with respect and shows the willingness to talk wit

“Otherwise, I think we might be facing a prolonged period of problems for both sides,” she said.
Regan, at the close of their 15-minute talk, said again, “No one wan
ts trade wars. But we have to think long hard about the right next steps.”
Liu, however, did counter an assertion by Regan that China’s government controls its entire economy.
“Everybody thinks that China’s economy is state-owned, state-controlled, every
thing is state, state, state. Let me tell you that is not the true picture,” Liu said. “We are a
ng should be leveraged to improve coordination mechanisms
for economic policies such as finance, currency, employment, industry, and regional develop
ment to ensure the nation’s economic development stays within a reasonable range, the statement said.
The meeting highlighted the importance of strengthening innovative cap
abilities as well as opening-up and cooperation in this regard, and called for improving the serv
ices and environment for opening-up and cooperation so that development is promoted through opening-up, inn
ovation is advanced through reforms and win-win results are achieved through cooperation, it said.
Tough and newly emerging problems should be resolved through deepening reforms, the state
ment said, adding that the capability of dealing with challenges and preventing risks should be intensified.
