The strategy features six development concepts: creativity, leade

In his speech to celebrate Tsinghua’s 108th anniversary, Qiu Yon上海后花园

Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for el
ectrifying and awe-inspiring Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海后花园
Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a
上海后花园venue for dance dramas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.
After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perman

Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was inspired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app

Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, includ

The show celebrates the ancient worship of the sun and birds by the people of Sichuan tho

ll percentage of China’s total exports to the US, the tariff hike is expected to have a limited impact on its overall trade. But Chi
na’s export of textiles, chemicals, daily necessities and some other products will be affected. Yet the effect of the h
igher tariffs would be somewhat offset due to the ratio of foreign capital and value-added goods in China’s foreign trade.
In terms of product category, the tariffs are targeted at intermediate and capital goods. Intermediate prod
ucts, capital goods, and consumer goods account for 51 percent, 32 percent and 17 percent of t
he $250 billion of Chinese goods on which the US has imposed higher tariffs (the US had already slapped higher tari
ffs of $50 billion of Chinese goods last year). And since 29 percent of consumer goods, 39 percent of capital goods and 74 perce
nt of intermediate products face higher tariffs, intermediate products will be the most affected by the US tariffs.
rcing to countries other than China under the tariff specter, the FDRA said there had been com

Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowme

“Since their issues do not involve critical technologies, the

The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distri

“It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals,” Chen said.

Preventing and defusing local governments’ hidden debt risks is key to controlling major risks, he said.
Innovative financial tools will be introduced for debt swaps, and the indebted comp
anies will be allowed to choose the same way, under guidance from the local governments, Liu Shangxi, hea
d of the Chinese Academy of Fiscal Sciences, the Ministry of Finance’s think tank, told China Daily.
“The total amount of hidden debt waiting to be swapped has not yet been calculated, as this
round of debt swaps will not involve the government’s administrative orders, but depends on the ma
rket’s appetite based on the evaluation of the potential default risks and the companies’ solvency,” he said.
inds of market-driven reforms needed to make this happen. The Chinese government is investing heavily in resear
ch and development, but it should be noted that the R&D spending as a percentage of GDP is still lower than that of the US.
Nobody likes competition against themselves. So, it must be admitted that China’s transition to a high-tech, high-
value-added economy will come as a shock to many companies around the world. The US economy, which has about 7
percent of GDP in high-tech manufacturing, will be lightly affected by this change.
On the other hand, advanced manufacturing contributes around 20 percent of GDP in Sout
h Korea, Japan, Germany and a few smaller European countries. They will be much more directly affected.
growth targets, based on excessively low estimates of potential growth, lead to lower actual growth. Fo
r an economy the size of China’s, a difference of even 1 percentage point has a huge impact on welfare.
Many economists would counter that a conservative growth target is useful－or even necessary－to create space for struct
ural adjustment. But this claim is unconvincing. Reducing China’s excessive reliance on investment in real es
tate－one of the economy’s most serious structural problems－does not necessarily require a reduction in FAI gro
wth, let alone GDP growth. Nor is slower GDP growth a prerequisite for improving financial stability.
China must pursue as high a growth rate as possible
In my view, because no one is sure what exactly China’s potential growth rate is, the best strategy is to try to achieve as high a g
rowth rate as possible, so long as it doesn’t worsen inflation and hinder structural adjustment.
