The State Council Information Office on Sunday issued a white paper
上海419on historical matters concerning Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China.
China is a unified multiethnic country, and the various ethnic group上海419
s in Xinjiang have long been part of the Chinese nation. Throughout its long history, X
上海419injiang’s development has been closely related to that of China, the white paper said.
However, in more recent times, hostile forces in and outside China, especially se
paratists, religious extremists and terrorists, have tried to split China and bre上海419品茶微信
ak it apart by distorting history and facts, the document, titled “Historical Matters Concerning Xinjiang”, said.
上海419Xinjiang has long been an inseparable part of Chinese territory. Never has it bee
n the so-called “East Turkistan.” The Uygur ethnic group came into being throug上海419品茶微信
h a long process of migration and integration, the white paper said, adding that it is part of the Chinese nation.
In Xinjiang, different cultures and religions coexist, and ethnic cultures have been fostered and developed in the embrac上海419
e of the Chinese civilization. Islam is neither an indigenous nor the sole belief system of the Uygur people. It has ta
ken root in the Chinese culture and developed soundly in China, the document said.上海419品茶微信
The surge in religious extremism around the world has caused a rise in religious extremis
上海419m in Xinjiang and has resulted in an increasing number of incidents of terror and violence, it noted.
“Xinjiang’s fight against terrorism and extremism is a battle for justice and civilization
against evil and barbaric forces. As such it deserves support, respect and understanding,” it said.上海419品茶微信
The document said that some countries, organizations and individual
上海419s that apply double standards to terrorism and human rights have issued unjustified
criticism of Xinjiang’s effort. This kind of criticism betrays the basic conscience and j上海419品茶微信
ustice of humanity, and will be repudiated by all genuine champions of justice and progress, it said.
anel discussions regarding future cooperation and development between the two countries, the organizers said.
An estimated 250 guests from Singapore and China attended, following the Singapore-Gu上海后花园品茶微信
angdong Collaboration Council’s ninth meeting, which was held the morning of the same day.
A series of agreements were signed during the meeting.
上海后花园Among them was a memorandum of understanding for the develo

ncial Group from China and Ascendas-Singbridge Group from Singapore.上海后花园
In response to the Chinese government’s drive to create an international in
上海后花园品茶微信dustry innovation hub in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the center is pl
anned to be built at the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City and leverage its research and develo
pment resources to achieve breakthroughs in core chip technologies, local officials said.上海后花园
The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is located in the Guangzhou Development District.
上海后花园品茶微信The Guangzhou Development District Talent Work Group and the East Asian Institute at Natio

rtant platform to deepen cooperation between China and Singapore,” noted Heng Swee Keat, Singa 上海会所品茶微信
pore’s deputy prime minister and finance minister, when he and his team visited CSGKC in May.
上海会所With joint effort, the CSGKC maintains growth and embodies
ecological protection. The combination will attract professionals, he added.
Greeting Heng’s delegation, Zhang Shuofu, Party secretary of Guangzhou, said th 上海会所品茶微信

ries and smart cities, to build the CSGKC into a highland of knowledge innovation.
Designated as a major innovation platform in the Bay Area, the CSGKC has gained much development in nine years. 上海会所品茶微信
According to official statistics, the CSGKC has attracted 1,524 companies with registered capital totaling 133.4 billion yuan
($19.39 billion). It also completed investments in fixed assets worth 106.2 billion yuan. 上海会所
Among them are CanSemi Technology, a 12-inch wafer chip supplier to be operational soon, equipment manufa
上海会所品茶微信cturer Greatoo Intelligent Equipment, biopharmaceuticals company BeiGene and other big names.
Collectively, they have launched 165 projects – 48 of w
hich are under construction – with a total investment of 77 billion yuan. 上海会所品茶微信
Cooperation with international companies is boosting the development of the biomedicine industry in the CSGKC.
Earlier this month, the CSGKC administrative committee signed an agreement with Tessa Therapeutics in Sin 上海会所
gapore for the latter to set up its China pharmaceuticals headquarters. The agree
上海会所品茶微信ment focuses on the research and development, production and sales of innovative immunotherapy.
Tessa will invest $120 million in the project. They will set up teams to launch clinical tests and strengthen the biomedic 上海会所品茶微信

The Lancet report predicts that China will surpass the United States in alc
上海419论坛品茶微信ohol intake per capita by 2030, with Chinese adults projected to drink more than 10 lit
ers annually on average and per capita consumption of alcohol in the US to drop to 9.5 liters. By then, about 77 percent of pe
ople in China are forecast to drink alcohol at least occasionally, compared with 73 percent in the US.
A recent report by major e-commerce platform Suning said that its sales of alcoho上海419论坛品茶微信
l rose greatly last year. Wine was the most popular choice, followed by spirits and beer.
Sales of the Chinese liquor baijiu, which is commonly used for wedding banquets, have risen along with the price, with som上海419论坛
e 20 million couples marrying in China from 2010 to last year. Baijiu is more popular in lower-tier cities than in me
tropolises. The greatest demand is for bottles priced from 100 to 300 yuan ($15 to $44), the Suning report said.
上海419论坛品茶微信Sales of beer and wine have also been steadily rising, especially high-qua
lity or niche products such as imported wine and craft beer. Chinese women prefer fruit
beer, nonalcoholic beer and sweet wine, with growth of all three exceeding the industry average.上海419论坛
US beer and spirits producer Alltech Beverage shipped its first Kentucky bourbon brand Town Branch to China in 2011.
上海419论坛品茶微信Jonathan Ardoin, head of Alltech Beverage Division China, said middle-class Chinese are now ready
to try spirits or beer from overseas, which wasn’t the case when the company first arrived in the count
ry. It now sells a range of imported drinks in China, and has also set up a factory in Hebei province.上海419论坛
“People are still drinking, but are willing to get out of their comfort zone,” Ardoin said.
He added that alcohol is a good “palliative solution” to relieve pr
essure for people who are constantly under stress, and Chinese consumers are foll上海419论坛品茶微信
owing a global trend that has led to increased demand for imported alcoholic beverages.
Sales of Scotch whisky are falling in Europe and the US, while Irish w
hiskey is the industry’s fastest-growing market. Alltech has received many inquiries from C上海419论坛品茶微信
hina and began importing a range of Irish whiskey into the country this year, he said.

上海419Xi urged local people’s congresses and their standing committees to ensure deputies play their roles better.
The local legislatures and their standing committees should maintain close ties with the people and observe their needs, X

上海会所”As an actress, I cannot shape a perfect role. The script is there, and I have to show the role’s stupidity according to the script,” says Yang.
Another highlight of her career was the fantasy drama, Ashes of上海会所品茶微信
Love, which aired in 2018. It topped TV ratings for 34 consecutive days.
上海会所But success can take a toll. Yang lost 9 kilograms while shooting, but the end result made the sacrifice worthwhile, she says.
Yang cares deeply about audiences and welcomes critical suggestions. “I don’t like hearing praise all the time, since that makes it hard to pro
gress. I like to listen to different people and improve my acting based on their suggestions.”上海会所品茶微信
With 20 years of acting under her belt, Yang allows herself a modicum of confidence. “I used to feel tense and was afraid the director might be dissatisfied with
上海会所my acting. But now, I can discuss the character and my acting with the director if I have a different understanding of the role.”
Yang also says she used to care a little too much about what others thought
. Now, she focuses more on her inner feelings and is clearer on what road she should take.上海会所品茶微信
“Sometimes, it seems two people are fighting inside my heart, but I always tell myself to discover my true feelings.”
Gu Ying, formerly a professional paraglider, is now a wild

Becoming a Photographer
Both of Gu Ying’s parents served in China’s air force. Under their infl

Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.
All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled
to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419
Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de
上海419品茶微信bris expected to fall in a designated secure area in the South Pacific Ocean, it added.
Preparations for reentry are underway, the agency said, saying China will publish related infor

Tiangong II was put into orbit in September 2016 atop a Long March 2F carrier rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite La
unch Center in the Gobi Desert. The space lab is 10.4 meters high, 3.35 m in diameter and weighs 8.6 metric tons.
上海419品茶微信Two astronauts, Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong, entered the lab that October after the
ir Shenzhou XI spacecraft docked with the lab and remained there for 30 days.
From April to September 2017, Tiangong II and Tianzhou I cargo spacecraft performed several docking and in-orbit refuel

The space lab also carried out a series of scientific and technological experiments.
上海419品茶微信Its predecessor, Tiangong I, was launched in September 2011 and was mainly used to test technologies involved in space re

Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou
ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊
hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.
上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the
Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou
nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co
上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.
“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i
dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊
uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”
上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy
mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co
nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v
iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所
“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu
上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in
ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c
ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee
l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所
Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’
s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De
上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and
orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.
Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.
