One day before the opening of BIBF, the 13th Special Book Award of China was held in Beijing亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活

to honor 15 foreign writers, translators and publishers who have helped spread Chinese culture.

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活女神会所Romanian translator Ioan Budura was one of the award winners. He said he felt enc

ouraged by the honor and wanted to “continue supporting the communication betwe

en China and Romania” in the future. Romania is also featured as the guest of honor of the fair this year.亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活

A Beijing International Publishing Forum was also held on

Aug 20 to discuss how to improve the quality of publishing content and promotion.

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活女神会所A Hong Kong pavilion has also been opened at the book fair despite the special administrative region’s recent troubles.

“It is Hong Kong’s ninth visit to BIBF, and we want to exchange Hong

Kong’s creations with people in the publishing business and with readers through this o亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活

pportunity,” said Lee Ka Kui, chairman of Hong Kong Publishing Federation Limited.

Lee admits the recent chaos in Hong Kong has negatively affected publishing th

ere since many retail bookstores have closed and much fewer people attended the H亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活女神会所

ong Kong Book Fair that was held on July 17-23. He hopes violence will cease and communication will continue.

This time, 66 Hong Kong companies brought over 2,000 books and other works. One feature of their pavilion is a cre亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活

ation corner showcasing many STEM books – about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“It seems STEM books are quite popular in the world now, and we want to follow that trend,” Lee said.

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活女神会所The pavilion also contains an artistic and cultural zone exhibiting some Cantonese books.

“I hope we will bring more Chinese mainland writers and books to Hong Kong, and vice versa,” Lee said.

The establishment of a national ethics committee on science and technology will i亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活

mprove supervision and ensure they develop along the right path, experts said.

“There have long been calls to set up a top-level ethics committee to亚博体育yabo88靠谱么夜生活女神会所

enable unified supervision of scientific research,” said Zhai Xiaomei, deputy dir

ector of the National Health Commission’s Expert Committee on Medical Science Ethics.

Earlier last month, another incident involving foreign teachers caused outrage, when 16 foreign nationals-se

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么楼凤ing, issued a statement saying that it forbids employees to possess or use narcotics or controlled substances, and th

The incidents triggered a flood of posts on social media platforms, with some dema亚博体育yabo88靠谱么楼凤女神会所

nding that the establishments be closed, while others called for the teachers to be deported.

But even if that happens, more foreign teachers will follow in their wake because the soaring de亚博体育yabo88靠谱么楼凤

mand for English-language teachers means that finding a job is little more than a formality for many foreigners.

Last year, 300 million people in China were learning English, according to the Chinese Acad

IMF report proves 亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419t manipulating currency

The latest report by International Monetary Fund (IMF) conclude

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419d that the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan was “broadly in line with medium-term f

undamentals”, and the Chinese monetary authority barely intervened in the foreign exchange market.亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

The report, released late Friday in Washington, was a blow to the lab

eling of China as “a currency manipulator” by the US administration, experts said.

The value of the Chinese currency and the country’s external position i

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信n 2018 were “broadly in line with the level consistent with medium-term fun

damentals and desirable policies,” the report said, citing that China’s current account surplus fell by around 1 pe

rcentage point to 0.4 percent of GDP in 2018 and is projected to remain contained at 0.5 percent of GDP in 2019.

Estimates showed that the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central ban亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

k, has had “little FX intervention”, said the report, which is based on IMF’s latest Ar

ticle IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信The IMF’s conclusion came in just four days after the US Treasury officially la

beled China as a “currency manipulator” on Monday. The Chinese yuan

weakened to beyond 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade earlier this week.亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

“The IMF conclusion is objective and reflected that the renminbi was assessed to be broadly

in line with medium-term fundamentals. The result kept pace with what it said in July,” said Zhang Xiaohui, a s

亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信enior researcher of the China Finance 40 Forum (CF40), and former assistant governor of the PBOC.

What the IMF concluded is a just decision, reflecting that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, according to Yu Yo

ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant of CF40.

Labeling China ‘currency 亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419pulator’ unreasonable

hina will not revise its foreign exchange policies, as the United States labeling it “a currency manipulator” is unre

?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信asonable and unlikely to get support from multilateral mechanisms, according to Chinese officials and analysts.

Based on available facts and evidence, it is unlikely that the International Monetary Fund — the most authoritative organization to arbitrate currency ma

nipulation — will stand by the US in accusing China of being a currency manipulator, they said. Without such suppo?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

rt from the multilateral organization, the US accusation will not hold up, they added.

?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信An IMF spokesperson told China Daily on Thursday that “discussions

with the US Treasury Department are ongoing on a range of issues”. The “range of issues” is not c

onfined to the currency manipulation accusation, the spokesperson added.

The IMF had not yet sent a message requiring Beijing to start related negotiation?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

s regarding the accusation, two Chinese officials familiar with the matter told China Daily. The Chinese govern

?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信ment maintains routine coordination and communication with the IMF, said the officials, on condition of anonymity.

The US Treasury Department wrote in a statement on Monday that it will engage with the IMF “to

eliminate the unfair competitive advantage created by China’s latest actions”. Hours before the US annou?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

ncement, the renminbi weakened beyond 7 per dollar for the first time since May 2008. Washington threatened earlier to sl

ap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods beginning on Sept 1.

?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419品茶微信Li Chao, vice-chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, said it is

“irresponsible” for the US administration to label China as “a currency manipulator”, as it not only viol

ates rules and common sense, but also causes damage to the US itself and stock markets of other economies.?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419

“(The US labeling) triggered drastic fluctuations across g

?亚博体育yabo88靠谱么419lobal financial markets,” Li said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.
