About 8.34 million new college graduates and 2 million migrant workers are expected to enter the job market this year. Added to the list of job seekers woul
d be those who lose their jobs because of the industrial structural transformation and special type of job see
kers such as veterans. This means at least 12 million urban jobs have to be created this year.
Still, the employment pressure this year is not overbearing for two re
asons. First, the number of job seekers has not increased considerably from last year.

Zheng, who had beaten Walkden three times in a row, took a dominant lead of 20-10 in the closin
g stages of the women’s over 73km category final, but the referee disqualified Zheng alleging she had committed 10 fouls during the bout.
Wakden then secured her third successive world taekwondo title by the referee’s punitive declaration.
“Our athlete has worked very hard for this gold medal and it was taken away so easily by the referee. This is very dirty.”
Guan said that the Chinese team will launch an appeal to the World Taekw

“We will definitely appeal to the decision,” he said. “And this refe

With Labour and Brexit-supporting rebels in the Conservatives p
lanning to vote against her deal, it is unlikely to be approved as things stand.
Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers were unimpressed with May’s failure to set a firm date to quit. One, who declined to be na
med, described it as “yet further procrastination which is causing appalling damage to the Conservative Party.”
Another, Andrew Bridgen, said May was “an increasingly beleaguered and isolated prim

China will further cut the number of items requiring certificatio
n and refine the procedures through institutional inno
vation to improve government services and foster a more enabling business environment.
The decision was made at the State Council’s executive meeting, chaired by Premier Li Keqiang on Sunday.
Participants at the meeting agreed that the government’s efforts in recent years to repeal unwarranted certification requ

Oct 1, 1949, the Chinese people began leaving behind a century of colonial humiliation and building a new life.
What remains poorly understood by the wider world even seven decades later is how dire were
the conditions in China during those days. While China sustained its triumph, Chinese people’s living stan
