The Hong Kong government has announced extra budget measures valued at HK$19.1 billion ($2.4 billion), in

Chief Executive Lam is expected to give a policy address in October, which is likely to include more enhancements, Wang said.
“First and foremost, Lam, with the support of Beijing, must break the stranglehold of local property tycoons on the上海后花园女神会所
real estate market and curb their political influence by greatly increasing land supply f

“Hong Kong may pride itself as one of the freest economies in the world
but, in fact, the property tycoons are calling the shots on the economy,” he said.
上海后花园女神会所”For better distribution of wealth,” Wang suggested, “the government can also consider raising taxes on those making HK$2 m
illion a year or more, and increasing taxes on property transactions valued at HK$10 million or more.”
Zheng Yongnian of National University of Singapore noted that the mainland has taken the initiative to adjust its policy on Hon上海后花园

ing gap between increased spending and the slower expansion of income, some local governments, especially at the co
unty level, are facing fiscal pressure. But the central government will transfer more funds to local go 上海龙凤1314女神会所
vernments to ensure stable fiscal spending and further implement tax and fee cuts, the ministry said.
上海龙凤1314By the end of July, local governments had issued 2.55 trillion yuan in new b
onds for the year, accounting for 82.8 percent of the annual quota of 3.08 trillion yuan.
A quota of 2.15 trillion yuan for local governments’ special bonds－mainly meant to s 上海龙凤1314
upport infrastructure projects－had been 65 percent used up by the end of July, the Ministry of Finance said.
Market speculation is that there will be additional bond quota space to bolster fiscal spending in coming months. But a seni 上海龙凤1314女神会所
or official at the Financial Department of the Ministry of Finance said in an interview this week: “It is unlik
上海龙凤1314ely that the government will raise the quota for local government bonds, or for the special bonds.”
Local government special bonds are seen as an important measur
e to support infrastructure investment, and they also are not included in local 上海龙凤1314
budgeted debt. The annual quota was set by the Government Work Report in March.
About 1.55 trillion yuan in local government special bonds had been iss 上海龙凤1314女神会所
ued in the first half, the Ministry of Finance said. The remaining 600 billion yuan
issuance must be finished by September－a State Council requirement to speed financing for key projects.
China should have an expansionary and much stronger fiscal policy in order to inc 上海龙凤1314
rease public spending and prevent a further slowing of economic growth, said Yu Yo
ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Yu spoke at a recent forum.
The fiscal deficit ratio, which may surpass the government target of 2.8 per 上海龙凤1314女神会所
cent of GDP this year, should be compensated by issuing more central government
bonds, said Yu, who also suggested the central bank lower interest rates for the bond issuance.

There was a “China is not an enemy” open letter to the US president recently in The Wa

the US, including a former US ambassador to China and professors from Yale, MIT and Harvard.
The letter reads in part: “US opposition will not prevent the continued expansion of the Chinese economy, a greater global mar上海千花网女神会所

It is imperative for the protesters to heal the wound now and clearly stay
away from the rioters. Identify the right crowd and recognize one incontrovertible fact－t

restoring the rule of law in Hong Kong. Please do not become the ones you hated most. If Hong Kong becomes hell, you are

China will simply weaken those Chinese intent on developing a more humane and tolerant society.”上海千花网

Port calls often serve as a barometer of China-US ties. Last year, China canceled the vi

330 million sale of military equipment to Taiwan and sanctioned the Chinese military over a Russian arms deal.
上海会所品茶微信In 2016, aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis and four ships in its strike group were denied port visits to Hong Kong after t
he US criticized China’s activities in the South China Sea. China also denied similar visits by US warships in 2014 and 2007.
Warship port calls to Hong Kong are defense and diplomatic affairs t上海会所

Law of the HKSAR. The Hong Kong government is tasked with hosting and carrying out the details of such events.
Port call activities typically consist of diplomatic exchanges, repairs, refueling, restocking of supplies and local tours, sho上海会所品茶微信

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs University, said the US Navy has a long track record of port visits上海会所

“Hong Kong has been in turmoil for months now. Coincidence or n
