There has always been divergence between Chinese and US figures on the bilateral trade gap due to the different met

The two-day event, themed “US-China Trade and Economic Relatio

“Based on the mass agricultural data and images we have acquired, we hope to build an optimized plant growth model to ach

Huang Runqiu, vice-minister of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said dis
aster risk reduction of natural hazards along the initiative is crucial for its success and sustainability.
Regions at the heart of the initiative, such as the Tianshan-Pamir Platea

us disaster threats due to tectonic movements, fragile ecosystems and extreme weather, he said.

“Structural opportunities (in the capital market) may con

IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde sai
in a recent interview with China Central Television that China’s economic d
evelopment now allows for “a focus on quality growth”, rather than necessarily quantity growth.
“And China’s development is clearly at the stage whe
re it can afford and should afford to do that,” Lagarde said.

Second, how are policies designed to help the poorest people? Chinese policies aim to give the poor a roof over their heads, guarantee
food, clothing and basic medical services, and provide their children with nine years of compulsory education.
Funds and resources have been made available for agricultural subsidies and cheap loans to rural far
mers. Funds also went into rural revitalization, to integrate regional development and build infrast
ructure connecting villages to markets so that farmers could sell their products more easily. Villagers have been enco
uraged to be innovative, with incentives and loans for them to become self-employed and to set up micro-businesses.
Moreover, teams of officials have been traveling to faraway and isolated rural areas to help individual
s and families with individualized plans that target specific problems, such as whether there is ill
ness or disability in the household. In other words, China has not taken a “one-size-fits-all” approach for the tough cases.
