体育彩票顶呱刮怎么玩 www.icnsw.icu Guangdong Information Office announced today that the 5th Plenary Session of Guangdong Provincial People’s Congress would be held in Guangzhou on Jan 19.

The Guangdong Provincial People’s Congress and its Standing Committee have formulated and approved 623 local laws and regulations by the end of 2016, and 455 of which are enacted.

Overseas Chinese who currently invest, work and live in Guangdong will be invited to attend the meeting and participate in the discussion based on their specific situations.

Besides, 60 representitives from 32 countries’ embassies in Guangzhou will also be invited to attend and give their advices.

Italian soccer wizard Marcello Lippi has returned as head coach of China’s national soccer team. But will the magic come with him? Will he bring what’s needed to take Team China into the 2022 World Cup? The challenge is daunting.

The Chinese Football Association’s announcement on Friday provided no details of Lippi’s contract. But according to Beijing Youth Daily, his new deal will be similar to his first contract, when he was reportedly paid an annual salary of 20 million euros ($22 million). It said he will start in June.

The first time Lippi took over, the national team showed “a very positive attitude and great perseverance” in competitions, the association said on Friday. “We are confident that Team China will again try its best to chase their World Cup dream,” it said.

The association also announced that it has set up a preparatory group for the upcoming election of new leadership, which is scheduled for next month.

Chen Xuyuan, chairman of Shanghai International Port (Group) Co, which owns the Chinese Super League’s Shanghai SIPG, has been appointed to lead the group.

According to Beijing Youth Daily, Lippi will arrive in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, on Tuesday. His first task will be to compile a new list of 25 candidates for Team China, which will assemble on June 3 for training. Lippi’s assistants are currently scouting matches in the Chinese Super League and the second-tier China League One.

News of Lippi’s hiring triggered a wave of chatter on Chinese social media. An hour after the announcement, related topics had been viewed more than 5 million times. While many basked in the coach’s return, others expressed concern about the current status of the national team.

The last major appearance of Team China was at the 2019 China Cup in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, in March, when the squad lost both its games. Lippi’s successor, Fabio Cannavaro, who coached both China and Evergrande, resigned a month later.

Lippi will now guide the team through the qualifying rounds of the 2022 World Cup. China is looking to secure a place in the World Cup again after making its one, and so far only, appearance in the finals in 2002.

Lippi, who led his native Italy to World Cup glory in 2006, was first hired in November 2016, but his original two-year stint in China delivered little to cheer about. He was unable to take China to the World Cup finals in Russia in 2018.

The 71-year-old Lippi had stepped down in January, after the country’s quarterfinal exit from the Asian Cup, when he reportedly became furious in the dressing room after China’s crushing 3-0 loss to Iran.

Lippi’s first game in his second tenure will be a friendly match with the Philippines in Guangzhou on June 7, as Team China prepares for the second round of Asian zone qualifying for Qatar 2022, which kicks off in September.

“I think I’d vote for Lippi to come back,” 38-year-old Team China captain Zheng Zhi said on China Central Television in March. “The old man would for sure bring more values to the team. We never lost faith in him, and our players all recognize his importance. From the beginning until the last game of the Asian Cup, we never doubted him, despite all the ups and downs.”

What players will be chosen by Lippi remains uncertain, but seeking younger talent will be a priority. Lippi led the oldest team at the Asian Cup this year, with an average age of 30.2 years, and many veterans will retire before the next World Cup.

Lippi’s best shot now is Espanyol striker Wu Lei, who joined La Liga immediately after the Asian Cup and became the first Chinese player to score in the league.

The International Consultative Conference on the Future Economic Development of Guangdong Province 2017 (ICCFED 2017) was held on September 21 in Guangzhou. As a consultant, Dr. Hsiao-Wuen Hon, corporate vice president of Microsoft, agreed to an exclusive interview with Newsgd.com, explaining his proposal to the Guangdong Government and Microsoft’s future plans in Guangdong.

During the interview, Hon emphasized the importance of digitalization as well as an innovative ecosystem, and expressed his willingness to cooperate with Guangdong to help set up the South China ‘Intelligence Valley’ for AI.

Newsgd.com: What’s your proposal to Guangdong Government in ICCFED 2017?

Hon: My proposal lies on two points. The first one is about digital transformation.

I think this is a new economic form merging with the development of information technology. Thanks to the speedy development of information technology, great and rapid changes have taken place in different fields, sparking a digital revolution globally.

Microsoft has been working toward digital transformation in all industries globally and achieved much already. And we think it is certain that Microsoft and Guangdong can cooperate in this regard.

The second part is about the innovative ecosystem.

We are delighted to see that the government values innovation as the core of its 13th Five-Year Plan. We believe that it would help gather world-wide resources and enlighten the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Hence, I proposed that we should develop an innovative ecosystem including a good environment for technology exchange, enterprises’ innovative awareness and also optimized resource allocation.

Also, since the key to innovation is about talent, suitable preferential policies could be implemented to attract talent from across the globe.

Moreover, we also suggested Guangdong can take advantages of the current concentration of talent, industrial chain, and set up the South China Intelligence Valley for AI.

Hans Vestberg, President CEO of Ericsson Group and an advisor of the ICCFED 2015, accepted an exclusive interview from Newsgd.com on November 19. Mr. Vestberg introduced his understanding of “Internet+” Initiative and pointed out the essence of 5G to Guangdong.

At this conference, Mr. Vestberg’s suggestions to Guangdong government mainly focus on “Internet+” Initiative. He thought Internet+ Initiative is very important for Guangdong and they wanted to see much more cross-sectorial as well as cross-ministerial work to achieve the initiative.

Besides, Mr. Vestberg believed the digitalization could be very important in the education system, software, coding, etc.

The “Networked Society” is an important concept mentioned in Mr. Vestberg’s speech on the conference. “I think the networked society is based on mobility, broadband and cloud,” Vestberg said. Only people have sufficient mobility, broadband and cloud services, they are able to talk about some great things like the smart transport.

Hence, people still need to work endlessly before getting to the “Internet +”. He thought that Guangdong, China and many countries all around the world are getting very advanced on it. It is said that 90% of the earth population will have 3G or 4G coverage in 2020. “So we are all in the revolution of technology and of course that we need to plan how to use these in the best efficient way and that’s we call the Networked Society,” said Mr. Vestberg.

3G/ 4G is not enough, 5G is coming to Guangdong

Compared with the last time Mr. Vestberg came to Guangdong, he admitted that Guangdong has a lot of changes. “Four years ago when I was here, 3G was hard to hear, now we have a lot of 4G here, so a lot of technology (changes) there has happened,” said Vestberg. More importantly, it is said that Ericsson will bring 5G to Guangdong in future.

Ericsson is considering launch the 5G service in Guangdong. Ericsson are doing 5G RD for a long time and they are always starting with the headquarters of the big operators in China. Mr. Vestberg agreed that Guangdong is also a very important province for that. He said that 5G as a technology will be ready by 2020 and will be very much defined in the next couple years.

According to Mr. Vestberg, the whole regional program (5G) is a very advanced technology that is done for industrial Internet. The use cases (of 5G) will both benefit the industries and for government. “That’s why I think 5G will play a very vital role in the transformation of the province and goes to the next step for efficiency and sustainability,” Mr. Vestberg illustrated the essence of 5G service.

Green development and the promotion of new energy vehicles (NEVs) have always been key focal points for Guangdong over recent years.

In an interview with Newsgd.com, Dr. Jochem Heizmann, a Member of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, highlighted innovation, digitalization, education and international exchange when talking about cooperation with Guangdong.

Dr. Jochem Heizmann was here to attend the International Consultative Conference on the Future Economic Development of Guangdong Province (ICCFED) on Sept 21, during which he gave suggestions to the Governor of Guangdong on the development of the province.

Volkswagen is one of the old friends of the conference. The enterprise and its representative, Dr. Jochem Heizmann, have participated in three consecutive ICCFED since 2013.

Newsgd.com: What suggestions has Volkswagen provided to the Guangdong government?

Dr. Heizmann: The auto industry as well as the whole of society are now facing a wide range of challenges, such as digitalization, artificial intelligence, environmental challenges and the rise of self-driving cars… To keep innovating, our suggestions for the ICCFED include 5 major points:

First is to establish think tanks to create even more outside-the-box thinking and advice.

Second, since future mobility is about more than the production of new electric vehicles. We also need to take into account customer demands, a sustainable power supply, an established charging infrastructure and a sufficient supply chain open to all suppliers.

Third, the improvement of living standards for all through smart urban planning, including autonomously driven cars and convenient mobility services.

Fourth, nurture future innovation through advanced technical and environmental education, which will also further secure employment and upskill future-proof jobs.

Fifth, have a dependable and predictable regulatory framework, protection of intellectual property, open access to the market, a level playing field and fair and open competition, since these are the prerequisites of all further high-tech developments.

Consultation between China and the United States on economic and trade issues will be constructive as long as the U.S. delegation comes with sincerity, said a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wednesday.

Spokesperson Hua Chunying made the remarks in response to a question regarding the upcoming China visit by a U.S. delegation comprising of high-ranking trade and economic officials.

At the regular daily news briefing Wednesday, Hua confirmed the visit, saying that China welcomes the visit by the U.S. delegation led by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Mnuchin, who is also U.S. president’s special envoy, will lead the U.S. delegation to visit China from Thursday to Friday.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, also a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, will exchange views on China-U.S. economic and trade issues of common concern with the U.S. delegation.

China and the United States are the world’s top two economies. Properly settling issues in economic and trade relations through equal consultations and maintaining the overall stability of trade relations are undoubtedly in line with the common interests of both sides and will help world economic stability and growth, said the spokesperson.

Given the volume of the two economies and the complexity of their relations, it is unrealistic to expect to solve all the problems through one single consultation, Hua said.

As long as the U.S. delegation is sincere about maintaining the overall stability of China-U.S. economic and trade relations and an attitude of mutual respect, equal consultation and mutual benefits, the consultation will be constructive, Hua said.

Thai ambassador to China, Piriya Khempon, said that his country’s food has absorbed many Chinese traditions.

“Food makes people understand each other, understand the way of life of different people. Because the way they cook dishes reflects how they live, how they make use of the environment,” said the ambassador.

He said due to different local cultures, different regions have different food, which enriches our lives.

“The Chinese chef is number one in the way they cook and decorate the food”, he said.

The ambassador also emphasized the importance of promoting people-to-people exchange between China and Thailand. Last year 10.5 million Chinese tourists visited Thailand. “We always welcome Chinese tourists”, the ambassador said.

Nearly 300 passengers on the UA 86 flight enroute from New Jersey to Shanghai had a terrible experience on board on June 8, 2017 – they stranded on the plane for 11 hours.

Due to a mechanical issue, the flight was at first delayed for about 4 hours. After boarding, the passengers had waited for another 7 hours since more than 10 pilot crews had been replaced continuously according to the requirements of Flight Time Limitations (FTL) to avoid pilot fatigue.

Most passengers understood the importance of the mental status of pilots. However, UA unexpectedly took a total of 7 hours to manage the replacement of pilots crew 3 times, making hundreds of people wait in an airtight cabin for such a long time. And during this horrible idle time, UA did not even offer water and food. “No lunch, no dinner. If you want some water, you have to ask the crew yourself, while they were not seen in the cabin most of the time,” a passenger said.

Even worse, the cabin crew didn’t care about the feelings of passengers at all. Some of the passengers were old people and children while nobody was allowed to leave the cabin to get some fresh air, except for two people who chose to give up the flight without any compensation. According to a passenger Surname Zhan, her father, also a passenger on the UA 86 flight, had shown signs and symptoms of anxiety after arrival.

Afterwards, UA apologized for the mechanical issue and frequent replacement of pilot crews, and claimed that it would provide either $1,000 worth of air ticket voucher or 50,000 miles for the passengers, while it still didn’t mention the terrible and inappropriate service of its staff.

Three departments responsible for implementing family planning policies have been removed from the new structure of the National Health Commission, the commission has announced on its website.

The departments have been replaced with a new one that will focus on population monitoring and family development, and will be responsible for putting forward advice related to birth policies.

Three new departments have also been set up to take charge of work related to family health, eldercare and occupational health, according to the announcement, released on Monday.

It detailed 14 specific responsibilities of the commission after the organizational restructuring, including formulating national health policy, coordinating and deepening medical and healthcare system reforms, disease prevention and control, and formulating pharmaceutical policies.

After restructuring, the commission now has 21 departments, with 525 administrative staff members. It emphasized the importance of building a comprehensive system for disease prevention and tackling challenges arising from an aging population.

In March, “family planning” was dropped from the commission’s name as part of a sweeping government overhaul to reform official departments and reduce red tape.

The removal of the three departments that used to enforce family planning policies triggered public conjecture that the government may be planning to scrap long-standing limits on the number of children its citizens can have.

“The restructuring doesn’t mean that family planning will no longer exist,” said Yuan Xin, a population studies expert at Tianjin’s Nankai University.

“But in the new era, the major tasks have shifted from birth control to providing comprehensive reproductive services in support of the development of families.”

As of 2017, people age 60 and older accounted for about 16.2 percent of China’s population.

About a third of the country’s population will be over 60 by 2050, according to the China National Working Committee on Aging.

By comparison, the number of working-age people is set to fall to 700 million-a decline of nearly a quarter.

Alarmed by the rapidly aging population and shrinking workforce, the government relaxed the family planning policy, which was introduced in 1979, and implemented a two-child policy in 2016.

“The establishment of the new department to serve the aging population shows the government’s attention to the elderly. But issues related to an aging population cannot simply be solved by boosting the birthrate. Instead, enhancing our competitiveness in the global market and maintaining stable economic growth is the solution,” Yuan said.

Apart from the commission, several other ministerial departments recently released restructuring plans, such as the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.
