ing gap between increased spending and the slower expansion of income, some local governments, especially at the co

unty level, are facing fiscal pressure. But the central government will transfer more funds to local go 上海龙凤1314女神会所

vernments to ensure stable fiscal spending and further implement tax and fee cuts, the ministry said.

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

onds for the year, accounting for 82.8 percent of the annual quota of 3.08 trillion yuan.

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

upport infrastructure projects-had been 65 percent used up by the end of July, the Ministry of Finance said.

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

e to support infrastructure investment, and they also are not included in local 上海龙凤1314

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

ued in the first half, the Ministry of Finance said. The remaining 600 billion yuan

issuance must be finished by September-a State Council requirement to speed financing for key projects.

China should have an expansionary and much stronger fiscal policy in order to inc 上海龙凤1314

rease public spending and prevent a further slowing of economic growth, said Yu Yo

ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. Yu spoke at a recent forum.

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

cent of GDP this year, should be compensated by issuing more central government

bonds, said Yu, who also suggested the central bank lower interest rates for the bond issuance.

上海419论坛The problems were outlined on Friday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the central

Fu met media after he was discharged from the Princess Margaret Hospital in the New Territories of Hong Kong SAR. Fu上海419

Fu thanked the public for their care and concern, saying he still loves Hong Kong.

上海419Fu was sent to Hong Kong by the Global Times to cover the protests. The mass sit-in

at the airport started on Friday and led the airport to halt operations for two days.

Wearing a yellow press jacket, Fu’s hands and legs were bound while he上海419

was assaulted by a group of protestors who didn’t believe him to be journalist.

Fu was taken away by ambulance early Wednesday morning.

Hours before the assault of Fu, a tourist from Shenzhen, Guangdong province, was上海419女神会所

The man was later rescued after riot police arrived at the airport.

In July, the IMF said the US dollar was overvalued by 6 percent to 12 percent based on near-ter上海后花园女神会所

上海后花园Some estimate that a 10 percent appreciation of the dollar, relative to a trade-weighted current basket, reduces US

exports by about 1 percent of gross domestic product, or about $200 billion annually,” he said.

Usha Haley, the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair in International Business a上海后花园女神会所

“A counter-argument to Trump would be China has just responded to these new rounds of tariffs,” she told China Daily.
