The “contraction” trend is becoming increasingly prominent in the United States’ foreign policy thanks to its “Am
erica first” approach. Once the major provider of global public goods, the US is becoming a penny-pinching country focu
上海乌托邦sed solely on its national interests and thus weakening its international leadership.
Yet despite the contraction of its diplomacy, the US has gone on th
e offensive on particular issues, trade being the most prominent. Launching tra 上海乌托邦
de wars against nearly all major economies such as China, the European Union and Japan, the White House is
using the trade brawls to appeal to the US leader’s base even though tariff-slapping at will, and 上海乌托邦品茶微信
without any reason, goes against established trade practices and the World Trade Organization’s rules.
上海乌托邦Besides, the US administration has shown an inclination toward revisionism on the Taiwan question, with a number of pro-Taiwan of
ficials holding key decision-making positions in the US. The US leader’s phone call to Taiwan leader Tsai Ingwe

e moves including sailing aircraft carriers through the Taiwan Straits and endorsing laws such as the Taiwan Tr 上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海龙凤1314By the end of July, local governments had issued 2.55 trillion yuan in new b

A quota of 2.15 trillion yuan for local governments’ special bonds－mainly meant to s 上海龙凤1314

Market speculation is that there will be additional bond quota space to bolster fiscal spending in coming months. But a seni 上海龙凤1314女神会所
or official at the Financial Department of the Ministry of Finance said in an interview this week: “It is unlik
上海龙凤1314ely that the government will raise the quota for local government bonds, or for the special bonds.”
Local government special bonds are seen as an important measur

budgeted debt. The annual quota was set by the Government Work Report in March.
About 1.55 trillion yuan in local government special bonds had been iss 上海龙凤1314女神会所

The fiscal deficit ratio, which may surpass the government target of 2.8 per 上海龙凤1314女神会所

Party motto inspired by young soldier keeps educating members in new era
XI’AN-Serving the people wholeheartedly-this is
the motto of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the world’s largest ruling party. 上海夜网
In an education campaign themed “stay true to our founding mission”, which has been carried out nationwide since May, all CPC
members and officials are required to bear in mind the phrase and act accordingly. 上海夜网女神会所
The expression “serving the people” originated from a speech by late Chinese leader Ma

his lofty morality for serving the people wholeheartedly and sacrificing for the benefit of the people. 上海夜网
The speech has had a profound impact on the history of the CPC, and “serv
上海夜网女神会所ing the people wholeheartedly” became the fundamental purpose of the Party.
Seventy-five years on, Zhang’s stories have been eulogized by generations of Chinese, and his spirit has been passed on.
Role modelBorn in an impoverished peasant family in Sichuan province in 1915, Zhang joined the New Fourth Army in 上海夜网
1933 and the CPC four years later. Throughout the Long March, Zhang fought bravely in battles and was injured seve
