Growing economic dynamism will also serve as an im

portant stabilizing factor, he said. China’s research and devel

opment spending ranks second in the world, acc

ounting for around 2.18 percent of its GDP, while emerging strategic industries, th

e sharing economy and other new growth engines are also seeing continuous expansion.

The strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the solid material and technological foundation built through dec

ades of rapid development in the era of reform and opening-up will also help shore up economic growth, he said.

He added that China also has enormous resilience, potential and flexi

bility in development, deep experience in ma

croeconomic regulation and ample space for policy adjustments.

he May report summarized that China’s growth appear

ears to be stabilizing on the back of recently enhanced supportive measures.

The report expanded the number of countries it scrutinizes for curr

ency manipulation to 21 from 12. Countries with a current account surplus with the US e

quivalent to 2 percent of GDP were put on the watch list, compared with 3 percent of GDP before.

China didn’t meet the “currency manipulator” criteria listed by the US Treasury, but Washi

ngton will continue assessing the RMB’s performance given China’s large trade surplus with the US, the report said.

The US Treasury removed India from the watch list, while it added Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam.

“Chinese authorities have not used the exchange rate in prior easing

cycles to support growth, and they are unlikely to do so now, as this could pose macr

oeconomic stability risk,” said Andrew Fennell, lead sovereign analyst for China at Fitch Ratings.

For many solo diners, the most trying times are Chinese festiv

Late last year, Pu Kunhong decided to conduct a test. On New Year’s Eve, the 21-year-o

ld visited a well-known hotpot chain on his own to see how people would react.

Inside the packed restaurant, diners sat around tables, dropping meat, fish

balls and vegetables into boiling cauldrons and chatting happily amid the rising steam.

Pu sat opposite a large stuffed teddy bear-placed at his table by the management to ac

t as a companion-and quietly added slices of raw beef to the broth bubbling in his cauldron.

Providing large stuffed toys as companions is just one wa

y the restaurant attempts to put solo diners at ease and reduce the stigma of eating out alone.

“The stuffed bear brought a sense of warmth and security, and I didn’t feel embarrassed eating on my own,” Pu said.

hina’s ‘big three’ State-run airlines ask Boeing for compen

Air China, the country’s leading carrier, has formally requested compensation from Boeing Co for th

e grounding of its 15 737 MAX aircraft and delayed deliveries of future planes, the company said Wednesday.

China Southern Airlines, another of China’s “big three” State-run

carriers, has also officially asked the US aircraft-maker for compensation involving its 24 gro

unded MAX aircraft and postponed deliveries of such planes, CCTV reported the same day.

Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines had already sought compensa

tion from Boeing for incurring considerable losses after the grounding of the 737 MAX aircr

aft following two major crashes, according to a previous China Daily report citing People’s Daily.

The carrier filed a claim against Boeing for the losses caused by 14 suspensions of 737 MAX ai

rcraft since March 11 and delayed delivery of the models it had booked earlier, the report said.

Lovren celebrates scoring their fourth goal during the Ch

England — Liverpool delivered the greatest in a long line of famous comebacks to reach the Champions Leagu

e final on Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi’s Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield to overturn a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Divock Origi scored twice, either side of goals by halftime substitute Georginio Wijnaldum early in the second half, to send Liverp

ool into its second straight final and set up a meeting with either Ajax or Tottenham on June 1.

It was only the third time in the history of the European Cup that a team ca

me from three goals down after the first leg of a semifinal and progressed to the final, afte

r Panathinaikos in 1970-71 and Barcelona in 1985-86. No team had done it in the Champions League era.

The comeback was all the more unlikely given that Liverpool was witho

ut two of its first-choice forward line, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Instead, it was Origi — the scorer of the crucial fourth goal in the 79th minute — who made the seemingly impossible, possi

ble. And it needed some remarkable ingenuity from Trent Alexander-Arnold, who pretended to walk away from taking a co

rner before quickly spinning round and sending in a low cross as Barcelona’s players dawdled. Origi swept in the finish.

All the professors here at the institute have not only

theoretical knowledge, but also very good and deep experience in different

types of satellites. For example, Professor Hu was part of China’s own satellite program from th

e very beginning, and Professor Cui has taken part in both of my nation’s remote-sensing satellite projects.

“All of them have at least 10 years of experience in satellite re

search and development. This is very important and very unique,” he added.

Moreno Pena said China is special to him, professionally as well as personally.

“I met my wife during my first training in Beijing in 2007. She was also a Venezuelan studying spacecraft here at that time,” he said.

“China is a very special nation to me. I’ve made a lot of Chinese friends. I love Chinese f

ood in all flavors, especially Beijing roast duck, noodles and local Muslim food,” he added.

If you come in to the shore to deliver, it takes at least

an hour – an hour we lose on the water. The thing about the fish

is that once you find them, you’ve got to stay on top of them,” Berry said.

Irwin said that every day the fish seem to prefer different temperatures and water depths. He is us

ing all the skills he has learned throughout the world to find better ways to fish for carp in Kentucky.

The half-brothers are not the only ones lured to the state by Asian car

p. About a year ago, Lin Jiantong and his wife Jiang Huiying moved there from Atlanta to fish the species.

In Atlanta, they were employed as kitchen workers by Chinese restaurants. After le

arning they could make a living from fishing, Lin had no hesitation in trying a new lifestyle.

Growing up along the coast in Fujian province, he knows a thing or two about fishing.

Small pots with succulent plants have become a craze for Chinese but horticulture sector is facing a manpower shortage

Cheng Yajing is a gardener with “magical power” to make plants grow faster in a greenhouse at the Beijing Botanical Ga

rden, also a playground of succulent plants such as cactus, vines and potted juicy leaves.

“I’ve just finished trimming and fertilizing them,” says Cheng, as she walks through the gree

nhouse covering a total area of 1,000 square meters and spells out names of various plants.

“We have developed a series of industry regulations, but it is relatively hard to supervise their execu

delines in certain areas, such as whether a pet boarder is qualified, are still lacking,” Kong said.
