Xuan Changneng, deputy head of the State Administration of

 Foreign Exchange, said, “China has ample room to maneuver and take measures toward deleveraging.”

That conclusion is based on the debt structure and interest rate level, he said.

“When we’re talking about deleveraging and maintaining stable growth, I think the focus for seve

ral years has been on quality growth, not just any growth,” he said.Chinese President Xi Jinping met wit

at “major progress was made in boosting the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region”. In the years since t

he central government put forward the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei coordinated development plan, local authorities have taken a series of me

asures, including working on key issues such as top design, to help shift Beijing’s noncapital functions to nei

ghboring locations, integrating the region’s transport network and better strengthening environmental protection.

The government had also warned pro-Brexit politicians th

 that rejecting May’s deal could see Brexit delayed indefinitely.

The promises moved some previously resistant Brexit-backers to support the deal. Former Forei

gn Secretary Boris Johnson — a likely contender to replace May as Conservative Party leader — twe

eted that rejecting it risked “being forced to accept an even worse version of Brexit or losing Brexit altogether.”

But the Democratic Unionist Party in Northern Ireland, with 10 seats in the House

of Commons, has refused to back the agreement because it treats Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the UK.

Parliament voted on the legally binding, 585-page withdrawal agreement that May agreed upon with the EU late las

t year. It set out the terms of Britain’s departure — including its financial divorce settlement with the EU and the rights of EU and U.K. cit

izens after Brexit — but not a shorter declaration on future ties, which is also part of the agreed-upon divorce deal.

Removing the political declaration from the Brexit vote altered the deal enough to over

come a parliamentary ban against asking lawmakers the same question over and over again.

Top court’s new IP tribunal upholds French firm’s patent

The top court on Wednesday ruled in favor of a French global automotive supplier in a patent dispute

with two Chinese car accessory companies amid the country’s intensified efforts to protect intellectual property rights.

It was also the first public hearing by the Intellectual Property Court of the Supreme People’s Court since the special court was set up on Jan 1.

Valeo Systemes d’Essuyage, one of the world’s leading auto component providers, sued X

iamen Lukasi Car Accessories Co and Xiamen Fuke Wiper Co, two companies based in Fujian pro

vince, claiming infringement of Valeo’s patent on a connector for windshield wipers.

An IP court in Shanghai reached a verdict on Jan 22 finding that the two Chinese companies must cease their infring

ement. The two companies appealed to the top court, insisting that their products did not infringe on Valeo’s patent rights.

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.

The UK government described the plant closure as “a

  ating decision for Swindon and the United Kingdom.”

  Business Secretary Greg Clark said in a statement that it was “deeply disappointing that this decision has been taken now” b

ecause Britain is a leader in developing new technologies needed by the auto industry.

  Britain is set to leave the European Union in less than 40 days, but the details of what happens then are uncertain.

In the guidelines, the regulator set detailed rules on

the basic prerequisites that micro and small enterprises should meet to renew their loans and on the regulatory

requirements for banking institutions to do this type of business.

The loan renewal policy does not apply to real estate companies or enterprise group head office that are not engaged in production

and business operation. Besides, qualified companies should not have delinquent loans and interests with malice, according to Jiang.

In terms of pricing, the regulator said commercial banks should adhere to market principl

es and encouraged banks to renew micro and small business loans at a lending rate no higher than the previous rate.

As of the end of 2018, the balance of micro and small business loans of the banking sector in Beijing

increased by 15.23 percent year-on-year to 1.2 trillion yuan ($176.95 billion). During the same pe

riod, the number of micro and small enterprises that received loans grew by 59,500 to 257,200.

A recent survey on 617 micro and small businesses in 200 villages in Beijing’s peripheral areas found that at the start-up phase, 13 perc

ent of the businesses obtained bank loans, 13 percent borrowed from friends and relatives, 8 percent secured funding from

microcredit companies, nearly 8 percent received loans from small lending services offered by Alibaba Group Ho

lding Ltd and Tencent Holdings Ltd, while the majority of business owners used their own money or borrowed from individual creditors, said Mo Xiugen, di

rector of research at the Chinese Academy of Financial Inclusion at Renmin University of China.

He advised policymakers to encourage joint-stock commercial banks and microcredit com

panies to play a bigger part in providing financing to micro and small companies, as these financial institu

tions are more flexible and experienced in serving small business clients than large State-owned commercial banks.

patriarch, a lanky, hulking beast of 550 pounds,had been detained. As soon as we stepped in, he loped up tothe bars of his cage and set off a full-throated snarl, ears

 

flatagainst his skull and round eyes fixed on Babu. The soundwas so loud and fierce it seemed to shake the whole cathouse. My knees started quaking. I got close to

 

Father seemed to pause and steadyhimself. Only Babu was indifferent

to the outburst and to thesearing stare that bored into him like a drill. He had a testedtrust in iron bars. Mahisha started

pacing to and fro againstthe limits

of his cage.
Father turned to us. “What animal is this?” he bellowedabove Mahisha’s

snarling.
“It’s a tiger,” Ravi and I answered in unison, obedientlypointing out the blindingly obvious.

“Are tigers dangerous?””Yes, Father, tigers are dangerous.””Tigers are very dangerous,” Father shouted. “I want you

tounderstand that you are never – under any circumstances –to touch a tiger, to pet

a tiger, to put your hands through thebars of a cage, even to get close to a cage. Is that clear?

Nothing, thought Jon Snow, the same as me.

Halfway up the winding steps, he came upon Samwell Tarly, headed down. “Are you coming from the king?” Jon asked him.

“Maester Aemon sent me with a letter.”

“I see.” Some lords trusted their maesters to read their letters and convey the contents, but Stannis insisted on breaking the seals himself. “How did Stannis take it?”

“Not happily, by his face.” Sam dropped his voice to a whisper. “I am not supposed to speak of it.”

“Then don’t.” Jon wondered which of his father’s bannermen had refused King Stannis homage this time. He was quick enough to spread the word when Karhold

declared for him. 

How are you and

your longbow

getting on?”

stealing a cobra. He was a snake charmerwhose own snake had died. Both were saved: the cobra froma life of servitude and bad music, and the man from apossible death bite. We had to deal on occasion with stonethrowers,

who found the animals too placid and wanted areaction. And we had the lady whose sari was caught by alion. She spun like a yo-yo, choosing mortal

She had leaned over, thrust her hand in the cage and wavedthe end of her sari in the lion’s face, with what intent wenever figured out. She was not injured;

there were manyfascinated men who came to her assistance. Her flusteredexplanation to Father was, “Whoever heard of a lion eating acotton

sari? I thought lions were carnivores.” Our worsttroublemakers were the visitors who gave food to the animals.

Despite our vigilance, Dr. Atal, the zoo veterinarian, co

Jon’s cloak hung on a peg by the door, his sword belt on another. He donned them both and made his way to the armory. The rug where Ghost slept was

empty, he saw. Two guardsmen stood inside the doors, clad in black cloaks and iron halfhelms, spears in their hands. “Will m’lord be wanting a tail?” asked Garse.

“I think I can find the King’s Tower by myself.” Jon hated having guards trailing after him everywhere he went. It made him feel

It is reported that the female teacher, Zhang Shuhong

BEIJING, Dec. 28 – Dec. 26, a picture of a female teacher kneeling on a lecture

stool to give lectures to students was forwarded in the circle of friends, and netizens praised the professionalism of the teacher’s adherence to the lecture

platform. It is reported that the female teacher, Zhang Shuhong, is an English teacher of the third experimental primary school in Ningling County. Because

of the soft tissue injury of her right foot, she can’t stand for long on the platform, but she also catches up with the children at the end of the day. She

is afraid of delaying the children’s class. So she decided to kneel down to give the children a lesson, and this kneeling is one month.

According to Dahe Daily News, it can be seen from the pictures that Ms. Zhang Shuhong was standing on the desk with one hand, explaining with one hand,

while kneeling on the bench. Zhang Shuhong said that her legs would soon be numb because she needed to kneel for a long time in class, but she did not

accompanied the children down this difficult journey. In the meantime, teachers and children because of understanding Zhang Shuhong’s difficulties,

as long as they see her up and down the stairs, they are fighting to help her. Every time before class, the students also scramble to get her books and bags. At noon, the students will help her to cook. In this regard, Zhang Shuhong

lesson. After the examination, the leader let her rest at home, but thinking that the students will soon face the final review, Zhang Shuhong was not at

ease, so she could not stay at home, and returned to school in less than a week.

In this regard, some netizens said that “this is a model for teachers, worthy of respect”; others said,

ihope this teacher will recover soon,
