Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor on Monday sternly denounced t

Such violent acts are vicious, have caused city-wide indignation and should be punished, Lam stressed. 上海419品茶微信
Lam met with the media alongside principal government officials on Monday aftern
上海419oonfollowing targeted violenceat the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in Sai Wan,
Hong Kong Island, and at passengers in a metro station in Yuen Long, New Territories.
The vandalization to the Liaison Office, including besieging the office an 上海419品茶微信
d defacing the Nation Emblem mounted at the office entrance, is a blatant defiance to
上海419the nation’s sovereignty and an open challenge to the “one country, two systems” principle, Lam said.
Such acts have left a great harm to the special administrative region 上海419品茶微信
which is governed by the principle of “one country, two systems”, Lam added.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive also condemned the “astonishing a
上海419nd outrageous” attacks in Yuen Long. On late Sunday night, attackers in white shi

The SAR government bears zero tolerance to any kind of violence carried out at any time, anywhere and towards an
上海419品茶微信people. “We thus call on all citizens to safeguard the city’s law and order and never resort to violence”, Lam concluded.

At a giant venue at Beijing’s 751 Park, a stage was decorated like a replica of an apartment building in New York.
Then, a few minutes after the event host appeared from the door, three windows opened, with
上海419品茶微信comedian Chen Peisi, actor Feng Shaofeng and Taiwan singer-actress Amber Kuo appearing from them.
Each of the guests then hugged a furry creature resembling the an
imal characters they perform in the voice-overs for the upcoming Hollywood an上海419
imation sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, which will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday.
上海419品茶微信In the film, Chen is the voice of the conceited rabbit Snowball, while Feng dubs t
he canine protagonist Max, and Kuo lends her voice to Gidget, a white Pomeranian.
As well as the three celebrities, the film also features renowned director Feng Xiaogan上海419

At a news conference held in the Chinese capital on June 25, the stars tried to strike
上海419a chord with local audiences through sharing personal stories about raising pets.
Meanwhile, latest data from the box-office tracker Maoyan showed that the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entert上海419品茶微信
ainment production has topped the presale box-office charts for animation features as of Friday.
Comments on review aggregator Douban, an important reference point for fans to select their weekend viewing, also suggest上海419
ed that the film had drawn the highest number of potential theatergoers for its opening day.
For most industry observers, the film typifies the latest efforts by foreign animati上海419品茶微信
on productions to grab attention in China, the world’s second-largest movie market.
上海419Jiang Yong, a Beijing-based analyst, says that using Chinese celebrities for the Mand
arin voice-overs is a pivotal part of the local marketing strategy for imported animation films.
“And, despite the fact that most adult viewers, especially those in their 20s or 30s, are used to watching native language orig上海419品茶微信
inals with subtitles, the Mandarin version is the top option for families with young children,” adds Jiang.
But while stars can boost ticket sales, some of them have also sparked contro
versy, mostly due to skepticism surrounding their inadequate voice-over techniques.

上海419Country still has room to render policy support for economic growth, World Bank official says
China’s GDP growth slowed to 6.2 percent year-on-year in the second quarter, its slowest pace in the 27 years since qua
rterly record keeping began. But analysts said the brisk retail sales growth and stable employment, together wi上海419品茶微信
th possible support measures to be rolled out in the second half, will help bolster full-year growth.
Growth in the April-June period was 0.2 percentage point lower than the first quarter. GDP g上海419
rowth came in at 6.3 percent in the first half, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Monday.
上海419品茶微信Retail sales rose by a higher-than-expected 9.8 percent year-on-year in June, the fastest sinc
e March 2018, and increased by 8.4 percent year-on-year in the first half, compared with 8.3 percent in the first quarter.上海419
Industrial output rose by 6.3 percent year-on-year in June, beating general market expectatio
ns, compared with 5 percent in the previous month, the NBS said. But in the first half, industrial ou上海419品茶微信
tput growth dropped to 6 percent, down from 6.5 percent in the first quarter.
Fixed-asset investment growth was 5.8 percent in the first six months, compared with 6.3 percent in the first quarter, the NBS said.
Mao Shengyong, a spokesman for the NBS, said that “growth remained on tr
ack despite increasing external uncertainties and new downward growth pressure”.
“The 6.3 percent growth in the first half is in line with our expectations
and our full-year forecast of 6.2 percent growth,” said World Bank Country Director for China
Martin Raiser. In fact the data suggest “some stabilization of domestic demand, which is welcome”, Raiser added.
For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig
ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419
ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.
上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove
rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419
This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge
sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow
上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.
But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that
China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi
culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419
For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen
t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef
forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所
uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.
上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an
d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund
amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.
Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所
sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot
上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a
fter casting off losses that had pushed it down as much as 1.5 percent in the morning ahead of the data release.
