A self-certification procedure called Organization Designation Authorization came under scr

ian Airlines this month, which killed a total of 346 passengers and crew members, critics have ci

As if that was not enough of a provocation, Christensen

 said the first consultation will be held in September when a US delegation, led by a senior official fr

om the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, is expected to visit Taipei.

The US has been using one pretext or the other to provoke Beijing and violate the 1979 Joint Commun

iqué. But for the sake of Sino-US relations and regional peace, Washington should realize that instead of gain

ing anything, it would suffer huge economic and political damage by interfering in China’s internal affairs.

  systemic financial risks, are the fundamental tasks of financial work, calling for accelerated construction of the fina

ncial market infrastructure and advanced efforts to nationalize key information infrastructure in the sector.

  He also urged solid statistics in the financial sector and improvement in the warning system and rules on information disclosure and management.

  Education and supervision of senior officials of financial institutions and regulators sh

ould be enhanced, and more should be done to fight corruption in the financial sector, Xi said.

  He called for dynamic supervision of domestic and cross-border capital flow to enable financial watchdogs to fully monitor all flows.

  Xi said tasks for the reform and opening-up of the financial sector should be well implem

ented, calling for the preparation and the rolling-out of new reform and opening-up measures based on

the latest development of global economy and finance as well as the strategic needs of China.

  Reforms including revamps on market access system and trading regulations should be deepened, and regulators should take a two-pronged appr

  He said those causing major financial risks due to their breaches such as lax regula

  Efforts should be made to address the current situation where the costs of legal and

regulatory breaches in the financial sector, especially capital markets, are too low, Xi said.

Great Oolong in the Asian Cup! uuuuuuuuuuuu Chinese Maps

The Asian Cup of the United Arab Emirates officially kicked off in 2019. Both the opening ceremony and the opening battle ended this

morning in Beijing time. The first match of China Men’s Football Team will be held on January 7. Nevertheless,

it was learnt from the journalists ahead that the official brochure of the Asian Football Federation had made a big joke, Big Oolong! uuuuuuuuuu

Looking at this brochure carefully, even if you don’t understand Arabic, you can see at a glance that the

map of China in the upper right corner actually uses the map of the United States! This is almost an

unforgivable mistake! It is expected that the official of the Asian Cup will explain it later, even apologize.

The journalists who are familiar with Arabic are always pointing out mistakes. Although the picture uses

the portrait of Coach Lippi and the famous hostess Hao Haidong, the first point is that in the Asian Cup,

which is a national team competition, Gaolin’s image is still a picture of his club effectiveness.

In addition, the picture album gives the Chinese men’s football team this Asian Cup start forecast,

unexpectedly there are Dewey, Huang Bowen, Ren Hang’s name. Dewey and even the players of the 2011

Asian Cup, Huang Bowen and Renhang are the players of the 2015 Asian Cup. They did not participate in this competition!

The other mistake is to print the family portrait of the Korean team in the Asian Cup. At the reminder of Chinese journalists, the Asian

Football Association has retrieved some of its official brochures. It should be said that in this intercontinental tournament, even in the case

of a rehearsal by the Middle East countries for the 2022 World Cup, it is a pity that there are so many mistakes and so on.
