Tourist safety behind cro上海楼凤moveview of Taipei

Given the current climate of cross-Straits relations, the Chinese mainla

上海楼凤nd suspended issuing individual travel permits for Taiwan on Thursday. What do

es the move suggest? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Yao Yuxin. Excerpts follow:

上海楼凤女神会所DPP should stop splittist activities

Taiwan witnessed rapid growth in tourist arrivals from the mai

nland in the eight years before Tsai Ing-wen became the island leader in 2016.

Individual travel to Taiwan was first permitted for residents of Beijin

上海楼凤女神会所g, Shanghai and Xiamen, Fujian province, in 2011 when cross-Straits relations were goo

d thanks partly to Ma Ying-jeou being the Taiwan leader. The arrangement was extended to 47 mainland cities over the fol

上海楼凤lowing three years. As a result, mainland tourist arrivals in Taiwan peaked at more than 4 million in 2015.

But tourist arrivals began dropping after Tsai took office, because she and her Democratic Progressive Party refused to rec

ognize the 1992 Consensus that there is only one China, which soured cross-Straits relations.上海楼凤女神会所

Mainland visitors-a large number of whom are individual travelers-account for ab

out a quarter of Taiwan’s total tourist arrivals, so the new curbs could rattle the island’s tourism industry and上海楼凤

hurt the broader economy. If the situation continues to worsen, the system for mai

上海楼凤nland tourists to apply for group travel to the island might also be affected in the foreseeable future.

But ignoring the mainland’s huge contribution to the island’s tou

rism sector prosperity and economic growth, Tsai and the DPP have more brazenly p上海楼凤女神会所

ushed forward their “Taiwan independence” agenda without thinking that, by fur

上海楼凤ther straining cross-Straits relations, they are compromising the well-being of Taiwan compatriots.

Besides, without any evidence to prove their outrageous claim, Tsai

and her fellow DPP leaders accused the mainland of sending spies and interferi上海楼凤女神会所

ng in the local elections last year, which put the safety of mainland individual travelers at risk.

It also highlights the fight against financial corruption and secu

rities-related crimes, including to strictly punish people who disturb registration-ba

He noted the guideline is also a key move to maintain order in the capital market and improve its transparency.

Liu Junhai, director of the Business Law Center at Renmin University of China, said the guideli

ne lays a solid legal basis for the registration-based IPO reform on the STAR Market, adding that it could h

elp the judicial system to synchronize with, rather than lag behind, the capital market reforms.

Zhang Lianwen, a famome上海楼凤品茶微信 of illness

Zhang Lianwen, a 上海楼凤品茶微信North China Film performer who once starred in Yanyang Tian, Pioneering

tors. In 1960, he was admitted to the Department of Performance of Beijing Academy of Art. He studied drama

staff went to Daqing to experience life. “Eat, live and work with oil workers for more than a month.” Zhang Lianwen once said, “It was ice and snow, more than 20 degrees below

zero, and they stood on the well platform for more than ten hours a day. If they caught up with the wind, it would be even harder. Only then can

we really realize the difficulty of the oil workers, and know that the passionate bold words in the script are not shouted out in the mouth, they are all done in practice.

What touched Zhang Lianwen even more was listening to the workers’stories about Wang Jinxi. “When experiencing life, I listened to many oil workers’

descriptions of Iron Man, and felt that he was a man of iron clank! It is said that when the rig was transported from the railway station to the well

station, there was still a long way to go. A rig weighed tens of tons. Even after it was disassembled, a part weighed several tons. However, the

transportation equipment was limited. Later, it was Wang Jinxi who organized the workers to lift the

month in the hospital. Since then, his health has deteriorated, often accompanied by a wheelchair.

Nobel laureate Mo Yan and a dozen winners of the presti

gious Luxun and Maodun literature prizes, including Ge Fei, A Lai and Su Tong, together

with a group of renowned Shanxi writers and poets gathered that week to discuss literary depictions of the countryside.

The village has a literary tradition which dates back to the mid-20th century, when a new Chin

ese modern literary genre shanyaodan, a nickname for a potato that’s popular in North China, emerged.

Authors who follow the shanyaodan school of writing such as Zhao Shuli, Ma Feng and Xi

Rong were all living in the Shanxi countryside, where their work centered around rural life there.

Many of Ma’s works in particular were written in Jiajiazhuang, where he witnessed the changes to the village broug

ht about by the agricultural cooperatives during the 1950s after moving to work in Fenyang.

The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.
