President calls for better livelihoods, healthier growth
President Xi Jinping called for further efforts in poverty reductio上海419
n as he concluded his four-day inspection tour in Gansu province on Thursday.
上海419品茶微信Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, urged local governments to strengt
hen environmental protection, strive to improve people’s livelihoods and secure high-quality development.
After hearing a work report by local government officials on Thursday, he said intensified efforts must be made in po上海419
verty reduction with an emphasis on solving prominent problems that affect rural residents, including access to comp
上海419品茶微信ulsory education, basic medical services and safe housing, while ensuring they have adequate food and clothing.
He required local government officials to identify and assist povert
y-stricken people house-by-house and village-by-village in impoverished areas.上海419
Saying people’s livelihoods must be ensured and improved, Xi added that the issues t
hat matter to people, such as education, medical services and transportation, should be addressed.
The president called on local governments to advance supply-side structural reforms, accelerate the upgr上海419品茶微信
ading of traditional industries, cultivate emerging industries, actively develop high value-added agriculture and coordi
nate protection and development of tourism resources to secure high-quality development.上海419
He also urged Party committees at various levels and leading officials to earnestly develop the educational ca
上海419品茶微信mpaign themed “Staying true to our founding mission” among all Party members, fight against corruption, prom
ote clean governance, improve work efficiency and resolutely overcome bureaucracy and formalism.
On Wednesday morning, Xi visited the Huanghuatan community in Gulang county, home to上海419

gchuan’s new home, with a clean yard and well-equipped kitchen and bathroom facilities.上海419品茶微信
Seeing the changes from a photo of Li’s home before relocation, Xi said he was very ple
ased at the great progress achieved in people’s working and living environments.
hina will not revise its foreign exchange policies, as the United States labeling it “a currency manipulator” is unre
上海419品茶微信asonable and unlikely to get support from multilateral mechanisms, according to Chinese officials and analysts.
Based on available facts and evidence, it is unlikely that the International Monetary Fund — the most authoritative organization to arbitrate currency ma
nipulation — will stand by the US in accusing China of being a currency manipulator, they said. Without such suppo 上海419
rt from the multilateral organization, the US accusation will not hold up, they added.
上海419品茶微信An IMF spokesperson told China Daily on Thursday that “discussions
with the US Treasury Department are ongoing on a range of issues”. The “range of issues” is not c
onfined to the currency manipulation accusation, the spokesperson added.
The IMF had not yet sent a message requiring Beijing to start related negotiation 上海419
s regarding the accusation, two Chinese officials familiar with the matter told China Daily. The Chinese govern
上海419品茶微信ment maintains routine coordination and communication with the IMF, said the officials, on condition of anonymity.
The US Treasury Department wrote in a statement on Monday that it will engage with the IMF “to
eliminate the unfair competitive advantage created by China’s latest actions”. Hours before the US annou 上海419
ncement, the renminbi weakened beyond 7 per dollar for the first time since May 2008. Washington threatened earlier to sl
ap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods beginning on Sept 1.
上海419品茶微信Li Chao, vice-chairman of the China Securities Regulatory Commission, said it is
“irresponsible” for the US administration to label China as “a currency manipulator”, as it not only viol
ates rules and common sense, but also causes damage to the US itself and stock markets of other economies. 上海419
“(The US labeling) triggered drastic fluctuations across g
上海419lobal financial markets,” Li said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.
Mark Sobe, a former senior IMF official, told Reuters on T
uesday, “It’s ridiculous that they’ve declared China a currency manipulator. T 上海419品茶微信
hey don’t have any meaningful tools to do anything about it, unless they just want to pile more tariffs on.”
The Commissioner’s Office of China’s Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong has lodged stern representations with US Consu
late General on its officer meeting “Hong Kong Independence” activists, a statement on the office’s website said on Thursday.上海419品茶微信
The statement came after it was reported that an officer at the US Consulate Gene
上海419ral in Hong Kong and Macao held a meeting with major “Hong Kong Independence” activists.
An official at the Commissioner’s Office urgently summoned a senior official at the US Consulate General to lodge stern repres
entations, expressing strong disapproval and firm opposition, and requiring clarification, according to the statement.
The official of the Commissioner’s Office emphasized that China is rock-firm in upholding natio上海419
nal sovereignty and security and Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, and in opposing any inter
ference in Hong Kong affairs by any country, organization or individual in whatever form, the statement said.
上海419品茶微信We strongly urge the members of the US Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao to abide by international law and basic
norms governing international relations, including the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the
Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, and observe their obligations as consular personnel, said the statement.上海419
They are urged to immediately make a clean break from anti-China forces who stir up tro
uble in Hong Kong, stop sending out wrong signals to violent offenders, refrain from meddling with
上海419品茶微信Hong Kong affairs, and avoid going further down the wrong path, said the statement.
