With the European Union ending its anti-dumping and anti-subsidy meas

The country’s photovoltaic products export volume to the Netherlands and Spain increased 1,049.6 percent and 158.3 perc

Weaker economic growth puts at risk essential invest

ments in areas such as education, health, climate change adaptation and sustainable infrastructure.

The growth outlook in all major developed economies and most developin

g regions has weakened due to a confluence of both domestic and external factors, the report said.

Following an expansion of 3 percent in 2018, world gross product growth is now projected to moderat

e to 2.7 percent in 2019 and 2.9 percent in 2020, reflecting a downward revision from the forecasts released in January.

The report identifies several downside risks that could trigger a sharper or more prolonged growth slowdown, potentially infl

icting significant damage on development progress. Those risks include a further escalation in trade te

nsions, a sudden deterioration in financial conditions, and the accelerating effects of climate change.

When the desired train tickets are not available at the tick

et booking site and the app of the China Railway Corporation, a person can use the “waiting” function, and the system will add the wanted ticket information to a list.

One person could make an order for three tickets in the waiting list, and the function will be

free and much more efficient than other third-party software to grab tickets, according to the operator.

When ticket buyers cancel or change their tickets, the system will allocate the returned tickets to waiting buyers on the list.

To use this function, people have to pass a verification process on their status through facial recognition.

They will have to prepay the maximum price for each ticket, and once the

Liu’s article was published in Qiushi Journal, a flagship m

magazine of the Communist Party of China Central Committee. He said more efforts a

re needed to implement the proactive fiscal policy and boost efficiency this year.

Preventing and defusing local governments’ hidden debt risks is key to controlling major risks, he said.

Innovative financial tools will be introduced for debt swaps, and the indebted comp

anies will be allowed to choose the same way, under guidance from the local governments, Liu Shangxi, hea

d of the Chinese Academy of Fiscal Sciences, the Ministry of Finance’s think tank, told China Daily.

“The total amount of hidden debt waiting to be swapped has not yet been calculated, as this

round of debt swaps will not involve the government’s administrative orders, but depends on the ma

rket’s appetite based on the evaluation of the potential default risks and the companies’ solvency,” he said.

he scholars suggested that authorities such as th

 National Health Commission should monitor all gene-editing centers and IVF clinics in China to ensure trials are in line with regulations.

A national registry dedicated to clinical trials involving cell technologies should be established to pro

mote greater transparency, they said, so that before a trial begins scientists would need to pass an

ethics review and provide a list of names of all participating scientists and institutions.

Universities and research institutes should strengthen education and

training in bioethics and scientific and medical professionalism, covering research sci

entists and students of science, medicine and the humanities at all levels, they said.

In addition, more efforts should be undertaken to eliminate prejudice against people wi

th disabilities, which exists in the minds of some scholars, they said. Following the gene-edited baby incid

ent, government departments have vowed to improve supervision, and new regulations are being made or revised.

More nurses sought to treat elderly populationetition at a tra

Health authorities will redouble their efforts to train nurses in eldercare as the proportion of older people in the pop

ulation expands and tens of millions of people struggle with disabilities, a senior health official said on Wednesday.

Jiao Yahui, deputy chief of medical administration and supervision at the National He

A regulation on the training of healthcare workers and standards of service is being drafted. It i

The nurse’s aides will complement the work of full-fledged nurses to meet the demand for services for the elderly, she said.

The number of registered nurses in China topped 4 million as of the end of last year. Nearly 70 perc

ent held a junior college degree or above, accounting for almost half of all healthcare professionals, she said.
