Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committ

mittee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, laid a floral basket at a monument on Monday marking the departure of the Long March.

At a museum marking the start of the Long March, Xi spoke with nine representati

ves of descendants of Red Army soldiers and relatives of revolutionary martyrs.

The People’s Republic of China was founded at the cost of the blood of numerous revoluti

onary martyrs, Xi said, adding that the CPC and the Red Army, upholding lofty revolutionary id

eals, had brought about incredible achievements after repeatedly surviving desperate situations during the Long March.

Xi called for staying true to the revolutionary martyrs, the P

arty’s original aspiration and mission, its revolutionary ideals and principles, and the

people living near revolutionary sites. Xi’s inspection tour took place a week after the Political Bureau of the CPC

More comprehensive and well-targeted policy respon

ses are needed to tackle the current growth slowdown,” Elliot Harris, UN chief economist and assi

stant secretary-general for economic development, said Tuesday at a news conference. “It is increasingly clear that policies to pro

mote sustainable development will need to look beyond GDP growth and identify new and more robust measures of

economic performance that appropriately reflect the costs of inequality, insecurity and climate change.”

In response to slowing growth and subdued inflation, major central banks have eased their monetary policy stances. The recent mo

netary policy shifts have helped to stabilize global financial markets and capital flows to emerging economies.

However, the report cautions that a more protracted period of monetary accommodation could exacerbate fina

ncial imbalances, including further fueling debt accumulation and raising medium-term risks to financial stability.

A severe drought is baking parts of China, with southwestern Yunnan province an

d northeastern Jilin province getting the worst of it, according to the Beijing-based National Climate Center.

Crops have been damaged by the drought, including rice and wheat in southern areas and corn in the northeast.

According to the Yunnan government, the drought has made it diffic

nced that when conditions are right, artificial means will be used to make rain.

Chen Lijuan, the chief weather forecaster of the National Climate Center, sai

d rain is on the way to the northeast and will arrive next week. That should alleviate the

drought, but dry conditions will continue to make things worse in Yunnan, she said.

Zhou Wenyi, a 26-year-old from Kunming, Yunnan province, said that the weather is very strange this year.

“The climate of Yunnan is kind of like the southeastern Asian countr

ies, where April and May are the two hottest periods before the rainy season arrives. The hig

hest temperature in Yunnan’s summer period usually is around 21 to 22 C,” she said.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

 Uygurs in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Which in itself is a worrying development since it may be the start of the US using the domestic affa

irs of other countries as a pretext to stifle the growth of foreign competitors to US companies.

Washington, of course, is trying to put the US on the high moral ground while embedding

its trade frictions with other countries into its political agenda and using its economic policy for its foreign policy aims.

In this way, it is hoping to achieve the colonization of the global

business world, allegedly under the banners of human rights, freedom and democracy.

If Washington really cared about the human rights situation in X

decades, the regions’ economy has increased more than 250 times, and the well-being of the Uygur people h

Tian Dewen, a researcher in European Studies at the Chines

He is certain that nationalist and far-right parties will gain ground, but it is still possible that the mainstream groups, which a

Faced with deep-rooted structural weakness, several large

eral large developing countries are struggling to recover from recessions or remain trapped on a low growth path.

The report highlights that per capita income growth in several parts of Africa, western Asia, L

atin America and the Caribbean is expected to remain very weak in the outlook period. That poses ad

ditional challenges for the Sustainable Development Goals, including the goal to universally eradicate poverty by 2030.

The report further notes that while poverty remains predominantly

rural, further progress on poverty-reduction also hinges on the effective management of o

ngoing urbanization. That is particularly relevant for Africa and South Asia, the two regions with the highest num

ber of people in poverty, which are expected to experience the most rapid pace of urbanization in the next two decades.

If they wanted a replay of what happened to ZTE, a Chinese company which relies heavily on outsider

technologies, they may never see it. Because Huawei is a dramatically different kind of business.

The Plan B Huawei has just revealed — a series of self-developed chips — is only part of what makes it an enterprise of strategic insight, and hence resilience. Over

time, that insight has rewarded it with a viable biosphere that its founder Ren Zhengfei believes will enable it to weat

view with Chinese media, adding that Huawei has cultivated longstanding trust with industry partners.

That may be why, even after Google barred Huawei from some Android featur
