Candidates urged to stand aside in crowded UK leadersh

Candidates bidding to replace Theresa May as Britain’s prime minister

and the leader of its ruling Conservative Party are vying to separate themselves from the pack

in a crowded leadership race that had, as of Monday, attracted 13 competitors and much criticism.

Leadership battles typically attract a handful of hopefuls but this is the largest in Conservative Party history.

The BBC said on Monday the overcrowded race had led so

me senior members of the Conservative Party, including Housing Minister James Bro

kenshire, to urge fringe candidates to pull out in order to save time and leave the waters less muddied.

One aim of the literature festival is to improve the cul

ltural appeal of the countryside so as to attract people back, Jia says. The organizers are als

o working to promote communication between the authors and the villagers, and encourage more reading activities.

Rural resident Ren Chunhua, 63, who now works as a narrator at a local history gallery, was list

ening to Ge Fei’s lecture in her gallery neighboring the festival venue and wanted to buy his work and got the write

r’s signature. She thought Ma’s work inspired by village life in the 1950s was well-written and accurately reflected the reality there.

Literature aficionado Cao Liang drove for two hours from Taigu county to attend the lectures. Having coll

ected all of Su’s books and being familiar with many of the guest authors’ works, he is currently writing his own novel.

Villagers took turns to attend the festival, a move which Ren believes will in

vigorate the local cultural environment and raise Jiajiazhuang’s profile.

Since agricultural products account for a relatively smal

ll percentage of China’s total exports to the US, the tariff hike is expected to have a limited impact on its overall trade. But Chi

na’s export of textiles, chemicals, daily necessities and some other products will be affected. Yet the effect of the h

igher tariffs would be somewhat offset due to the ratio of foreign capital and value-added goods in China’s foreign trade.

In terms of product category, the tariffs are targeted at intermediate and capital goods. Intermediate prod

ucts, capital goods, and consumer goods account for 51 percent, 32 percent and 17 percent of t

he $250 billion of Chinese goods on which the US has imposed higher tariffs (the US had already slapped higher tari

ffs of $50 billion of Chinese goods last year). And since 29 percent of consumer goods, 39 percent of capital goods and 74 perce

nt of intermediate products face higher tariffs, intermediate products will be the most affected by the US tariffs.

the World Trade Organization in 2001. That paved the

way to more than a decade of export-led double-digit economic grow

th, and the ongoing shift from export-led quantitative economic growth to inno

vation-led qualitative development, which has accelerated under President Xi Jinping’s leadership.

China’s industrialization peaked between the late 1990s and 2008, when the

global financial crisis broke out. Now China’s rate of growth is decelerating, which has been

the norm for all industrialized countries from Great Britain in the 19th century to the US in the 20th century.

In China, deceleration is a sign that rebalancing toward consumption and innovation by 2030 is on track.

Nevertheless, the living standard in China continues to improve st

eadily. Today, it is about a third relative to the US. In other words, it has multiplied six tim

es relative to US living standard, thus supporting the rise of the world’s largest emerging middle-income group.

The kind of view that he expressed is certainly in th

 right direction, and I’m encouraged by all of that,” said Jack Perkowski, a Wall S

treet veteran and founder and managing partner of JFP Holdings in New York.

Perkowski said that when combined with a perceived lack of legal enforc

ement, the issue of protecting IPR has always been the single biggest hurdle for most

companies from the United States when thinking about entering the China market.

He said every aspect of doing business in China has gotten better in the past two decades in the view of international investors.

Perkowski said IPR protection has emerged as a key issue. “China is deve

loping economically and technologically, so the bar is getting higher,” he said.

Savio Chan, CEO of US China Partners Inc, a business development f

irm, said the government’s crackdown on “squatting”-registering a large number of tradem

arks in order to unfairly profit-will improve the environment and help enterprises build brands with real value.

As an important power promoting human develop

tanding, deepening friendship and expanding cooperation in the fast-changing world. They should push world pro

gress in the right historical direction while promoting exchanges among civilizations and mutual learning.

First, we should act as promoters of exchanges among human civilizations. The mutual depende

Zhao, the middle school teacher in Beijing, said th

t although he donated organs, many of his friends would not register as donors, sin

ce the traditional belief still exists that the body should be kept intact after death.

“I think more education and publicity should be made at colleges

to promote the awareness of students, who accept the idea more easily,” he said.

Chen, the transplant center director, said more efforts should be made to ensure the quality o

f harvested organs, especially those harvested at smaller hospitals or clinics.

“No doctor would dare to use substandard organs, since th

at may cost lives,” he said. “We hope all organs distributed are equally up to standard.”

Huang, chairman of the donation and transplantation commit

tee, said there are 182 hospitals certified in organ transplant surgeries around the country.
