Since the area features two free trade zones in Shang

anghai and Zhejiang, Bank of China will come up with more offshore FTZ businesses in the near future.

上海千花坊Kong Qingwei, chairman of China Pacific Insurance (Group) Co Ltd, said t

he Yangtze River Delta region is a key driver of the group’s annual income and inno

vative development. Of the insurer’s 126 million customers in China, 30 million live in the region, and account for 80

billion yuan, or 25 percent, of the insurer’s 320 billion yuan in total premiums.上海千花坊品茶微信

As Kong understands, there are plenty of opportunities for insurance companies in the integr

ated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, with transportation as a top priority.上海千花坊

“Insurance capital can help the government to boost domestic consumption. A com

prehensive transportation network connecting railway, subway, ports and even airports ha

上海千花坊品茶微信s been a longstanding goal of many cities in this area. This is where insurers can play a big role,” he said.

Elderly care is another sector where insurance companies can find big opportunities, said Ko

ng. In early June, CPIC opened an elderly care community in Hangzhou, and is about to launch a new one in Nanjing.

“The idea is to let the senior citizens in Shanghai enjoy quality elderly

care services in other parts of the Yangtze River Delta region. More room in Sha上海千花坊品茶微信

nghai can thus be given to ambitious young entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses,” he said.

The integration of risk prevention schemes for peasants in the Ya

ngtze River Delta region is one more area where insurers can focus on, said Kong.上海千花坊品茶微信

Peasants’ income can be largely increased via products such

as cost insurance, yield insurance, income insurance or one-stop insurance service.

上海千花坊品茶微信He Haifeng, director of the Institute of Financial Policy, which is a part of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the

integrated development of the delta region presents many latent challenges. So, more efforts should be made to ref

orm finance and tax areas, to reduce fees in various fields, and improve the overall business environment.

Steel Roses in bloom, 上海419论坛女神会所umors in bud

China’s Steel R上海419论坛女神会所oses got off the mark at the FIFA Women’s World Cup on Thursday, shooting d

own their critics and rumors of a rift between head coach Jia Xiuquan and star player Wang Shuang in the process.

In a dominant display that lacked only for more goals, a first-half volley from striker

Li Ying proved enough to earn the points against South Africa at Parc des Princes in Paris.

The 1-0 win leaves China third in Group B, level on points with secon

d-place Spain to set up a mouthwatering showdown between the two teams on Mo

nday (Tuesday morning Beijing time), when a spot in the knockout stage will be up for grabs.

Wang’s omission from the starting XI (she was eventually introduc

ed after the interval) in the opening 1-0 loss to Germany had raised eyebrows and sp

arked speculation on social media that the Paris Saint-Germain star had somehow fallen out with coach Jia.

Chan Lai-wing, a teacher at the school, said she believ

eves the conviction of serving the country had taken root among children and would later blossom and bear fruit.

In a reply letter dated Friday to the school’s students, Xi expressed

his hope that the students could pass on the fine tradition of loving the motherland and lovi

ng Macao, and make contributions to Macao’s development and the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation when they grow up.

In a statement, Chief Executive of Macao Special Administrative Region Fernando Chui Sai-on said that the letter has demo

nstrated Xi and the central government’s care and expectations for Macao’s students and youngsters.

China has a large youth population, with more than 248 million aged 15 or below on the Chinese mainland alone.

Despite a busy schedule, Xi still tries to find time to interact with children.

The release of the report was part of the Pujiang Innova

tion Forum, a major annual event in Shanghai for exchanges on science and technology innovation between China and the rest of the world. Nearly 150 gues

t speakers from 23 countries and regions will make speeches at 16 different forums through Sunday at this year’s event.

All China’s administrative villages are expected to enjoy delivery services by 2022, according to the country’s postal service regulator.

Besides, there will be delivery service outlets in every township across China, one o

f the goals outlined in a guideline to leverage postal services to vitalize the rural areas.

About 74.9 percent of the country villages still don’t have rural e-commerce delivery stations.

The central government’s infrastructure investment, as well as local specific funds for rural

vitalization, should offer support for rural delivery infrastructure development, the guideline said.

nual Lin Zhaohua Theater Arts Festival, which was

One day last summer, Chinese actor-turned-director Lin Xiyue dined with his father Lin Zha

ohua, a veteran theater director, at his father’s home in Beijing. After dinner, the father and son smoked ciga

rettes together on the balcony, where the father spoke about the Lin Zhaohua Theater Arts Festival.

The festival, initiated by Lin Zhaohua in 2010, is seen as a cultural e

vent which brings well-known and pioneering foreign plays to Chinese audiences.

But last year, the event was canceled.

“When he told me that he wanted me to be the artistic director of the festival in 2019, hones

tly, I was not ready for that,” says the 49-year-old Lin Xiyue, who started directing plays about five years ago.

“I was not even sure if we could have another Lin Zhaohua The

ater Arts Festival since almost every year they encountered financial losses.”

Ultralow emissions will be realized at all steel manufa

cturers in key regions, and in 80 percent of the sector nationwide by the end of 2025, under a guideline pub

lished by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment on Sunday. The guideline was drafted by the ministry and four other central gove

rnment bodies, including the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s economic planner.

The guideline sets different limits for various procedures in steel produ

ction. The hourly density of particulate matter in emissions should be below 10 mill

igrams per cubic meter in all procedures. As for sulfur dioxide and nitric oxide discharges, the limit can dif

fer. The hourly concentration of sulfur dioxide, for example, should be below 35 mg/cu m in emissions generated by core pr

ocesses, such as pellet roasting, but the standard is relaxed to 50 mg/cu m for other processes.

At least 80 percent of raw materials and products should be transported v

ia railway, ship and pipeline rather than road transportation, the guideline said.

China is the largest steel-maker in the world. The country produced 928 million metri

c tons of crude steel in 2018, representing 51.3 percent of the world’s output, the ministry said.
