Sun Yuchen, or Justin Sun, the 29-year-old cryptocurrency entrepreneur and this year’s Warren Buffett lunch winner, apologized

for his excessive marketing and publicity stunt on the Chinese social media platform Weibo on Thursday.上海419论坛

Sun said the lunch meeting came from his admiration of Warre

n Buffett and his love for philanthropy, and he also wanted to take the opportunit

上海419论坛女神会所y to promote the blockchain industry, though it turned out to be an overblown marketing attempt.

The Chinese entrepreneur won the auction for this year’s Buffett lun

ch with a record high $4.57 million bid in June, while he canceled the planned lunch m上海419论坛

eeting, claiming he had “a sudden kidney stone attack” in a Tuesday post on Weibo.

上海419论坛女神会所However, according to a Wednesday report from Chinese media outlet Caixin, Sun was put on a border control list by C

hinese authorities that would restrict him from traveling abroad for allegations includi

ng illegal fundraising, money laundering, gambling and spreading pornography.

he exhibition also r上海419论坛e classic stories from the

e Romance of the Three Kingdoms, such as the battle of Chibi and the battle of borrowing

arrows with thatched boats, depicting ancient Chinese military commanders’ wisdom.

上海419论坛In the exhibition hall, 1,100 arrows suspended from the ceiling and 400 arrows on the opposite wall are displa

yed, replicating the scene, so that visitors can experience the density of arrows fired during the ancient battle.上海419论坛品茶微信

another first-grade relic, draws visitors’ attention with its broad branches and leaves, which unfurl in all directions and are decorat

上海419论坛ed with images of the ageless Queen Mother of the West and a Taoist immortal riding on a deer. The branches are fest

ooned with about 400 bronze coins, showing the intricacy and delicacy of ancient Chinese craftsmanship.上海419论坛

On one side of the exhibition wall, a large snake spear model, measuring more than 3 meters in length, is mounted. Accor

上海419论坛品茶微信ding to the exhibition, snake spears were used in the southwestern region of China’s Yunnan province in the second cent

ury BC, where actual snake spears are often found at historical sites. With the deification of Zhang Fei, a famous military co

mmander during the Three Kingdoms period, there is still debate about whether he himself wielded a snake spear.上海419论坛

Adding a little local flavor, the exhibition also displays the original manuscript of the Three Kingdoms m

上海419论坛anga comic by Japanese cartoonist Mitsuteru Yokoyama, a drawing for die-hard fans of the cartoon art form.

Dressed in a T-shirt embroidered with a map of the Three Kingdoms, Torahiko Hara, a fan

who works at Sony Digital Entertainment, says he was interested in the exhibition because of his love for Yokoy上海419论坛品茶微信

ama’s cartoons, adding that, since visiting it, he now understands more about the ancient history behind them.

上海419论坛The exhibition is the largest China-themed display ever held by the Tokyo National Museum, with 85 percent of the exhi

bits on display in Japan for the first time, says Zeniya Masami, executive director of the museum.

Zhou Ming, deputy director of Art Exhibitions China, says he believes the exhi上海419论坛

bition would arouse a new enthusiasm among the Japanese people for the c

ulture of the Three Kingdoms and help them gain a deeper understanding of the period’s history.

上海419论坛品茶微信According to the exhibition, the Three Kingdoms period began a

round 1,800 years ago amid the chaos of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). The events of this time, alo

ng with tales about the rise and fall of the era’s various warlords, were recorded and later became popular legends.上海419论坛

They provided the inspiration for numerous works of poetry, literature and painting, leadin

g to the formation of a rich and colorful “Three Kingdoms culture” that still resonates to this day.

Up until now, the stories of the Three Kingdoms have been continuously developed in various forms in Japan, including上海419论坛品茶微信

novels, comics, puppet shows and games, with many characters of the Three Kingdoms familiar to the Japanese people.

Which shows Western, especially US, politicians and

media accuse China of violating human rights in Xinjiang not because they care for the people of the region but because they want to use hu

man rights as a weapon to attack China so they can hide their own atrocious human rights records.

Just as Deng Xiaoping said, some Western countries use issues su

ch as human rights to criticize China, but what they’re really after is China’s sovereignty. In pa

rticular, the US, given its grim human rights record, has no right to criticize China.

If governments and people across the world want to safeguard huma

n rights and promote the global cause of human rights, they should abandon their biases ag

ainst each other, respect cultural diversities and realize that human rights are really ab

out making people’s lives better, which is exactly what the central government has been doing in Xinjiang.

of the State Council, China’s Cabinet, on Wednesday, it was decided t

hat 10 percent of the shares of domestic large-and medium-sized State-owned e

nterprises will be transferred to the social security fund. Beijing News comments:

State capital belongs to the people and should benefit all members of society. It is also the co

mmon practice of developed countries to supplement social security fund with State-controlled capital.

After the money is transferred, the SOEs will enjoy the rights and profits

as financial investors, while the social security fund will be strengthened.

Before the move, the social security fund mainly rel

ied on enterprises and fees paid by individuals plus financial subsidies.

Especially, in the past round of SOE reform, many retirees were allo

wed to get their pensions without ever paying for them, which means the whole society sub

sidized the SOEs. Now the SOEs are flourishing and it is time they render some help back to society.

Money from the SOEs has long been considered an important way to supplement the social security fund. Howev

er, progress in achieving this goal has been rather slow. According to a national audit report, at the end of March this

year, only 113.2 billion yuan ($16.42 billion) of 23 SOEs had been transferred to the social security fund, which account

s for less than 10 percent of the planned total. Only four provinces had started the job.

There are vested interests behind this. For example, certain local government

Trade deal possible if上海419论坛tions realisaily edito

Little has been revealed about what each party actually said during their lat

est conversation. But Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He’s phone call with US Trade Re上海419论坛

presentative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday has made headlines anyway.

上海419论坛女神会所Information available so far suggests the conversation was at least partly

about bringing the negotiators back to the negotiating table.

Although tentative, this surely is a constructive initial step toward building on the all-impor上海419论坛

tant outcome of the June 29 Osaka meeting between the Chinese and US leaders, which secured a pause in th

上海419论坛女神会所e two countries’ trade war. After all, this was the first high-level contact at the operational level since then.

Progress was made after the two leaders agreed to further negotiations when they met

in December, and it is to be hoped that will be the case after their consensus this time.上海419论坛

However, considering how the subsequent talks broke down, how the two part

上海419论坛女神会所ies responded, and what they want from each other, it would be advisable to be realistic about what to exp

ect, otherwise the trade impasse will be perpetuated and their respective economies will continue to suffer.

Both countries need and want a trade deal and fine trading ties. This is the understa上海419论坛

nding both countries have reached after a grueling year of tit-for-tat tariffs. Which is why, despite all the dr

上海419论坛女神会所awbacks, we remain convinced Beijing and Washington will indeed make every effort to find a way out.

While Beijing is fighting fiercely against the rising noise of “decoupling” the C

hinese and US economies, the latter appears equally anxious for that not to happen. If Beijing is driven mostly by con上海419论坛女神会所

cerns about looming economic woes, Washington has the 2020 election as an additional incentive.

China to hold 2019 Worl上海419论坛f Things Exposition

The 2019 World Internet of Things Exposition (WIOT) will be held in Wuxi, eastern China’s Jiangsu province, from September 7 to 10.

This year’s exposition will focus on the Internet of Vehicles (IoV), the convergence of the mobile Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT).上海419论坛

Earlier in May, Wuxi was approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to be the pilot area of developing IoV.

上海419论坛品茶微信Exhibitors including traditional car makers, automotive electronics manufact

urers and IoV platform service providers will showcase new achievements of the IoV industry.上海419论坛

The establishment of six new pilot free trade zones (FTZs) and expansion of the Shanghai FTZ are underway, the Ministry of Commerce said Thursday.

上海419论坛The new zones and the Shanghai FTZ expansion will further optimize China’s FTZ lay

out and better serve national strategy, said MOC spokesperson Gao Feng at a press conference.

Last weekend, China released two negative lists for 2019, one for the FTZs and one for上海419论坛品茶微信

the rest of the country, easing market access in agriculture, mining, manufacturing industries and services.

The shortening of negative lists and improvement of FTZ business environment wi上海419论坛

ll help further stimulate market innovation and drive economic growth, Gao said, adding that the m

inistry was working alongside other departments on rolling out related regulations.上海419论坛品茶微信

While opening up more sectors, China is committed to providing better services and environment

for foreign investors and sharing with them more opportunities of China’s development, Gao said.

More than 30 of the world’s top 500 companies will participate in the exposition.上海419论坛品茶微信

Discussions will also involve sectors including inte

lligent manufacturing, intelligent robots, information security, big data and 5G.

A total of 180,000 visitors are expected to attend the exposition, including guests from more than 30 countries and regions.

China has introduced a two-year pilot program to find out the psychological conditions a

nd needs of senior citizens at the primary level, the National Health Commission (NHC) announced Thursday.

Covering 1,600 urban communities and 320 villages, the pilot program targets permanent reside

nts aged 65 or above, said Wang Haidong, director of NHC’s Department of Ageing and Health.

The CPC had 90.59 million members at the end of last year, an increase of 1.03 million from the end of 2017, and 4.61 million primary-level Party organizations, up by 39,000, according to the report.上海419论坛品茶微信

It has seen its membership grow from more than 50 when it was founded in 1921 to 4.49 millio

n when the People’s Republic of China was founded in 1949, and now to more than 90 million.上海419论坛

Statistics show that about 99.8 percent of existing Party members joined the CPC after the PRC was foun

上海419论坛品茶微信ded, and more than 80 percent joined the Party after the third plenary session of the 11th CPC Central Committee in 1978.

Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC in 2012, an average of 3.9 million people have applied to join the Party eve

ry year, with the annual number of members recruited remaining steady at about 2 million in recent years, according to the report.上海419论坛品茶微信

Last year, the CPC recruited nearly 2.06 million new members, 72,000 more than in 2017.

Among those new members, about 850,000 were women, 44.9 percent held junior college degrees or above, and 80 percent were aged 35 or younger.

Zhu Lijia, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance, said, “The increase in membership means more people, especially上海419论坛品茶微信

younger generations, are interested in joining the CPC because they have seen the achievements that the Party has led people to gain.

“Meanwhile, as the country is moving to pursue quality development, the Party needs talent from differen

t walks of life. The educational background of the Party members has seen a big improvement in recent years,” he said.上海419论坛品茶微信

The CPC was founded on July 1, 1921. From 1921 to 1949, it led the Chinese people to overt

hrow the rule of imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat-capitalism and establish the PRC.

The CPC has led the Chinese people to develop the country into th

e world’s second-largest economy and lift 700 million people out of poverty.

China’s liquor brand Kweichow Moutai gave up “Guojiu”, or State-level liquor, in its trademark, and took

down the sign of “Guojiu” from the gate of its plant last Saturday, news website Zaker reported on Sunday.

Li Baofang, chairman and general manager of Moutai Group, said on June 12 the company would stop using

the “Guojiu Moutai” trademark before June 30, and had hired consulting companies for new promotion plans.

Moutai repeatedly applied for “Guojiu Moutai” trademark registration starting from 2001, tho

ugh all applications were rejected by the then-State Administration for Industry and Commerce, since the wor

d in Chinese means the best liquor in China, which will have a negative impact on market competition.

Chen Hongbin, asso上海419论坛品茶微信e Shanghai

 Institutes for In上海419论坛品茶微信ternational Studies, said the Xi-Trump meeting will undoubtedly be in the spotlight during the G20 Summit.

Chen said that long-lasting trade friction has led to downside risk for the Chinese economy, and a negative impact also looms over the US economy.

The International Monetary Fund warned earlier this month that US-China tariffs tha

t have been implemented or proposed could cut global economic output by 0.5 percent, or $455 billion, in 2020.

The Xi-Trump meeting will help ease tensions between Beijing and Washington in trade disputes, Zhou said. “You can

‘t expect the meeting to resolve the trade issue, but it will inject impetus into trade talks,” he added.

Stephen Roach, a faculty member at Yale University and a former chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, said in the Preview Policy

Report for the G20 Osaka Summit that resolution is possible, but it won’t be easy in the current climate.
