Comments Off on Well-tuned steps urged for poverty eradicatio
President Xi Jinping underlined on Monday the need to shore up areas of weakness and carry out more targeted pove
rty alleviation efforts in building the country into a moderately prosperous society in all respects.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chair
man of the Central Military Commission, made the remark while presiding over the fourth meeting of t
he Central Committee for Financial and Economic Affairs. Xi is head of the committee.
The meeting stressed the importance of achieving targets for poverty alleviation across the boar
d and focusing efforts on areas of extreme poverty, according to a statement released after the meeting.
It is important to tackle the remaining difficulties faced by people still confronting hard
ships in terms of their access to education, medical care, quality housing and safe drinking water after ens
uring that their basic needs for food and clothing have been met, the statement said.

Comments Off on It is reported that the IS terrorist organization has clai
med it was behind the horrific attacks. Yet whoever the perpetrators, the attacks on innoc
ent people should be condemned in the strongest terms, and those responsible arrested and punished.
Since Sri Lanka has been facing some political and e
conomic problems, and increasingly acute social conf
licts for the past few years, the attacks seem to reveal not just sectarian disputes but also cer
tain people’s dissatisfaction with the situation in the island nation, and the rest of South Asia.
The motive behind the attacks could be helplessness and desperation of certain sections of Muslims in South Asia.
The rise of Islamic extremism has to some extent fueled the rise of white supremac
ist groups in the United States and some European countries. Perhaps the conflict between Islamic extremism and
the anti-Muslim forces today is greater than that immediately after the Sept 11, 2001, attacks in the US.
And the rising tensions in South Asia and other regions should prompt govern
ments to take sound measures to prevent the spread of extremism inside their borders.、

tory as a mirror, and combining their personal ideals with the dream of national rejuvenation, Hu Xianzhong, a senior re
searcher at the China Youth and Children Research Center, said in an article published by China Youth Daily on Sunday.
Since the movement began nearly a century ago, the country’s youth
has been collectively marching with the times and the people under the leadership of the C
PC－whether in periods of revolution, construction, or in the nation’s campaign of reform and openingup, Hu said.
As the centenary of the movement draws near, a good understanding of its history will make yout
hs know more about why their futures are closely connected with the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation so that
they will find their niches and play bigger roles in the country’s socialist cause, he added.
Chen Yuhao, a postgraduate student at the U
niversity of International Business and Economics, said the spirit of patriotism, progress, democracy and s
cience is still the core value of Chinese youth, and should be upheld and carried forward in the new era.
Comments Off on Unlike the second version, the latest one included rule
on the new science and technology innovation board, which will pilot the registration-based IPO system, according to Xinhua.
To accommodate the progress of reforms and development of the capital market, other modifications have also been made, cov
ering public issuance of securities, securities trading, and the protection of investors’ rights and interests, Xinhua said.
Dong expects the latest version to legitimize registration-based IPO systems not only
on the new board, but also across China’s whole A-share market. “Once the system achieves success on the n
ew board, it should be adopted on other submarkets as soon as possible,” Dong said.
President Xi Jinping announced in November that China will launch the S&T innovation board and pilot the registr
ation-based IPO system. Analysts expect the new board to begin trading around the middle of this year.
“The latest draft is expected to make comprehensive revisions, and it could go a long way
toward restoring public investors’ confidence and modernizing the regulation and governance of the ca
pital market,” said Liu Junhai, director of the Business Law Center at Renmin University of China.

rule has been added stating that such tests should also follow ethical pri
nciples. It also clarified the responsibilities of the ethics review board.

The draft laws are the latest by Chinese authorities to encourage responsible research practices and increase the effe
ctiveness of the nation’s oversight in scientific research, especially those related to humans.
