The Belt and Road Initiative has huge potential to bring prosperity

to millions by building infrastructure in areas of the world where it is most needed, a UK offici

al said after attending the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing.

Catherine McGuinness, chair of the policy and resources comm

ittee at the City of London Corporation, was very impressed by Chinese President Xi Jinp

ing’s speech on the crucial need for financial and environmental sustainability.

McGuinness wished to learn more on how the Green Belt and Road Investment Principles, developed in

part by the City of London Corporation’s Green Finance Initiative, can play a part in this journey for win-win cooperation.

She spoke highly of the achievements Chinese government has made in developin

g BRI from a concept on the drawing board to the reality of roads, rail tracks and ports since it was proposed in 2013.

Yi pledged to use more market-based commercial fund

 He also said improving transparency for projects’ financing is needed, especially for green

financing, and using local currencies in BRI investments to curb exchange rate risks. “The opening of local curr

ency-denominated bond markets will effectively attract long-term funds and reduce risks of currency mismatches,” he said.

Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fu

nd, said at the forum that China’s increased focus on the long-term success of BRI projects and the

BRI debt sustainability framework “are very welcome steps in the right direction”.

The further opening-up of China’s financial sector, such as the b

ond market, will enable diversification and foster renminbi internationalization, she said.

New cross-border bridge to boost China-Vietnam trade

The Second Beilun River Bridge opened to traffic on March 19. It connects the Chinese city of Dongxing with the Vietn

amese city of Mong Cai, two important trade cities along the border between the two countries.

The new bridge spans 549 meters across the border river between China and Vietnam and is built to the first-class high

way standard. Construction started in 2014 and was completed in late 2017, costing a total of 220 million yuan ($33 million).

The bridge will greatly alleviate traffic burden on the First Beilun River Bridge three kilometers away, whi

ch was previously the only means of shipping personnel and cargo to or from Dongxing Checkpoint.

Statistics from immigration authorities show that 12.19 million people and 47,05

6 vehicles passed over the old bridge in 2018, far beyond its maximum capacity.

The new bridge is now designated for freight vehicles, while the First Be

ilun River Bridge is reserved for personnel. This could save 30 minutes or more in custo

ms clearance time for each consignment, according to Huang Xiong, deputy chief of Dongxing Customs.

The cooperation between the museum and Huawei will now

take that to an even higher level, as the new generation of telecoms technology will enrich the ex

perience of visitors to the museum, virtually and in reality, even further. And if conditions become mature in th

e near future, it will not just be visits to the Palace Museum that 5G transforms.

With 5G networks and a smartphone, one will be able to have a consultation with a doctor w

ithout leaving home or give instructions to robotic cleaners to do household chores.

In fact, what the new 5G networks represent is none other than the next technological revolution. There is no reason t

o politicize the arrival of this next-generation technology. Neither is there any reason to demonize what Hu

awei, as one of the world biggest telecoms equipment providers, is doing to usher in this technological revolution.

What is even more dangerous than the harm done to fair competition in the world market is the negative impact the polit

ical barriers some Western countries have put in the way of Huawei will have on the evolution of technology.

Ministers are taking questions from the media about the

 most pressing public issues. This is the second ministers’ “passage interviews” of this year’s two sessions.

Passage interviews got their name because they usually take place on walkways leadi

ng to the main hall of the Great Hall of the People before or after plenary meetings of the National People’s Co

ngress and the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

China’s financial sector is striving to solve the financing difficulties

of private enterprises and reducing their costs, said Guo Shuqing, Party secretary of the Peo

ple’s Bank of China and chairman of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.

“The efforts to step up support for private enterprises are closely related to the supply-side

structural reform of the financial sector. We are making adjustments in terms of financial ins

titution, market and product systems,” said Guo during an interview on Tuesday.

China will continue taking new steps in financial opening-up thi

s year, over which Sino-US trade talks are very likely to reach a consensus, Guo added.

Rudolph, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler introduced Sunday’s

  telecast, following Queen and Adam Lambert’s opening performance of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Cham

pions.” The “Saturday Night Live” alums riffed off the messy build-up to this year’s awards.

  An abundance of drama surrounded the build-up to this year’s Osca

rs, even before getting around to the nailbiting best-picture finish.

  The contenders reflected the gamut of an evolving movie industry, with “Roma” representing Netflix’s arrival in mo

vies, after the streaming service’s model-bending impact on the TV business.

  On the flip side, “Black Panther” embodied the blockbusters upon which the studios have come to rely, and the th

ird-highest-grossing US release of all time at $700 million, nearly doubling that total worldwide.

  A number of individual nominees registered breakthroughs for women and people of color, only

a few years after lack of diversity among the acting categories birthed the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.

Zhang Xinyu’s husband bought back all the twists from

Zhang Xinyu’s husband He Jie is not unfamiliar to many people. He Jie is excellent in all aspects. Besides his military achievements

and excellent physique in the army, he also reads poems, knows a lot, and is in the “One Stop to the End” of the Knowledge Competition Answer Program.

For all kinds of questions, the answer is fluent, presumably ordinary people dare not go to such a program, after all, it is to broadcast, if killed by seconds will be very embarrassing.

So when Zhang Xinyu made his partner public, everyone suddenly realized that he had participated in this program, and his admiration came into being.

Although He Jie may not earn as much as Zhang Xinyu, his educational level is obviously much higher than that of Zhang Xinyu, and he is also very kind.

On Jan. 7, Zhang Xinyu shared with you a trifle of life. She sunned a twist and said, “He saw Grandma putting

up a stall to sell twists and bought all the remaining twists…” He said that 9 kilograms of twist can be eaten for four months.

Although Zhang Xinyu did not specify which he was, everyone guessed, of course, what instructor

he was, or who else he could be. Zhang Xinyu almost mentioned his father on weekdays, and that was only his husband.

It’s getting colder and colder. In order to let the old man go home

earlier, He Jie bought all the hemp flowers aggressively. It’s really handsome and kind. Imagine that countless girls want to marry a good man like He Jie.

Iron Emmett’s lads were well at it in the yard, blunted

Iron Emmett’s lads were well at it in the yard, blunted swords slamming into shields and ringing against one another.

Jon stopped to watch a moment as Horse pressed Hop-Robin back toward the well. Horse had the makings of a

good fighter, he decided. He was strong and getting stronger, and his instincts were sound. Hop-Robin was another tale. His clubfoot was bad enough, but he was

afraid of getting hit as well. Perhaps we can make a steward of him. The fight ended abruptly, with Hop-Robin on the ground.

“Well fought,” Jon said to Horse, “but you drop your shield too low when pressing an attack. You will want to correct that, or it is like to get you killed.”

“Yes, m’lord. I’ll keep it higher next time.” Horse pulled Hop-Robin to his feet, and the smaller boy made a clumsy bow.

A few of Stannis’s knights were sparring on the far side of the yard. King’s men in one corner and queen’s men in another,

Jon did not fail to note, but only a few. It’s too cold for most of them. As he strode past them, a booming voice called after him. “BOY! YOU THERE! BOY!”

Just beyond the ticket booth Father had had painted on awall in bright red letters the question:

DO YOU KNOW WHICH IS THE MOSTDANGEROUS ANIMAL IN THE ZOO?
An arrow pointed to a small curtain. There were so manyeager, curious hands

that pulled at the curtain that we had toreplace it regularly. Behind it was a mirror.

But I learned at my expense that Father believed there wasanother animal even more dangerous than us, and one thatwas extremely common, too,

found on every continent, in everyhabitat: the redoubtable species Animalus anthropomorphicus,the animal as seen through human eyes. We’ve all met

one,perhaps even owned one. It is an animal that is “cute”,”friendly”, “loving”, “devoted”, “merry”, “under-standing”.

Not Sly. Haggon would have called it abomination,

Not Sly. Haggon would have called it abomination, but Varamyr had often slipped inside her skin as she was being mounted by One Eye. He did not want to spend his

new life as a bitch, though, not unless he

had no other choice. Stalker might suit him better, the younger male … though One Eye was larger and fiercer, and it was One Eye who took Sly whenever she went into heat.

“They say you forget,” Haggon had told him, a few weeks before his own death. “When the man’s flesh dies, his spirit lives on inside the beast, but every day his

memory fades, and the beast becomes a little less a warg, a little more a wolf, until nothing of the man is left and only the beast remains.”

“Wonder what happened to her face,” was57 her mental question, but the answer was doubtless any one of a dozen possibilities and she didn’t waste time in surmises.

Mrs. Pollzoff took up the speaking tube and Roberta attached the end so she could hear what was to be said.

“You have an exceptionally fine plane,” Mrs. Pollzoff remarked.

“I think so,” Roberta answered with a smile.

“Care to sell it?” The girl was so astonished that she gasped.

“No, indeed, I do not,” she answered emphatically.

Far away, a wolf gave howl.A shiver went through

Far away, a wolf gave howl.

A shiver went through Varamyr. He knew that howl as well as Lump had once known his mother’s voice. One Eye. He was the oldest of his three, the biggest, the

fiercest. Stalker was leaner, quicker, younger, Sly more cunning, but both went in fear of One Eye. The old wolf was fearless, relentless, savage.

Varamyr had lost control of his other beasts in the agony of the eagle’s death. His shadowcat had raced into the woods, whilst his snow bear turned her claws on those

around her, ripping apart four men before falling to a spear. She would have slain Varamyr had he come within her reach. The bear hated him, had raged each time he wore her skin or climbed upon her back.

His wolves, though …

“That’s what we want,” Mrs. Langwell told him, then turned to her daughter. “That is our telephone, dear.”

“I’ll go and answer it,” Roberta replied, and ran to the house as fast as she could. The bell was still ringing so she knew that the party had not been discouraged over the

delay and given up getting in touch with the family. “Hello,” she spoke into the phone.

“I wish to speak with Miss Langwell,” came the reply, and although the voice sounded familiar, Roberta could not recognize it immediately.
