On the China-CEEC leaders’ meeting, Chen said the

mechanism has made good achievements in economic cooperation over the past several years, including freight trains running between C

hina and Europe. The mechanism should continue focusing on concrete projects in infrastructure and other key areas, she said.

People-to-people exchanges, including education and tourism, should also be stren

gthened to improve mutual understanding between their people, Chen added.

China will take key measures in a new push to improve its cities through boosting the urban pop

ulation and bolstering the nation’s high-quality and stable economic growth, the country’s top economic planner said.

Measures include relaxing residency curbs, promoting investmen

t and financing mechanisms and increasing infrastructure spending in cities.

The National Development and Reform Commission issued on Monday key tasks for 2019’s new urbanizatio

n boost, which will help maintain the country’s sustainable and healthy economic growth and overall social stability.

China aims to increase the urbanization rate by at least 1 percentage point by the end of this year, accordi

ng to a document posted on the NDRC’s website. The proportion of urban population to total population reached 59.58 percent in 2018.

Flight systems, however, typically are built with a

 backup system so there can be no single point of failure. Since the crashes of Max jets in Indonesi

a in October and Ethiopia last month, Boeing has modified design of the anti-stall device to include two sensors on all aircraft.

The FAA allows airlines to make minor modifications in previously certified

aircraft to meet their operational needs, a rule Boeing followed in building the 737 Max for

foreign carriers. Ethiopian Airlines and Indonesia’s Lion Air — involved in fatal crashes five months apart — repo

rtedly declined to buy two add-on safety devices that might have helped the pilots keep the doomed planes in the sky.

Neither airline purchased the “angle of attack” system display for readi

ngs of two sensors rather than one and a “disagree light” to be activated if the sensors prod

uce conflicting readings. The Lion Air crash in October killed 189 passengers and crew.

Airlines around the world, including China and the US, have flown the 737 Max, introduced in 2018, without incident.

Crude steel production capacity in Hebei, Tianjin to be

Crude steel production capacity in Hebei province and Tianjin will be capped at 200 million metric tons

and 15 million tons by 2020, as part of China’s efforts to optimize the iron and steel industry, a senior government official said.

“There is too much capacity in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and

the surrounding areas, as well as the Yangtze River Delta region,” said Lyu Guixin, an ins

pector with the raw material department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

“The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region takes up only 2.2 percent of

China’s territory, but accounts for 25 percent of the nation’s crude steel output.”

Although official figures from the Chinese authorities are not av

ailable, Zeng Jiesheng, chief analyst with steel e-commerce platform Ouyeel.com, told Chi

nese media earlier that the iron and steel capacity of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region stood at about 280 million tons.

Tashi Lhamo, a 14-year-old eighth-grader, loves the Engl

lish class, which is taught by a Jiangsu teacher who is humorous and friendly. Memorizin

g vocabulary can be a dull task, so the teacher brings snacks, desserts or small gifts as incentives.

To spice up the classes, the teacher finds ancient Chinese poems that

have been translated into English and lets the students work out the original versions.

“My teachers in primary school didn’t use lots of multimedia. They were all too serious, so

the students rarely interacted or joked with them. But the Jiangsu teachers know how to use multimedia, and

always tell us things outside of our textbooks. The class is always great fun,” Tashi Lhamo said.

Chemi Drolma, an 18-year-old senior, plans to apply for a “normal” university-one that te

aches a range of subjects-after taking the gaokao, the national college entrance exam, in June.

Her favorite subject is geography, because it is the most ac

tive class. The school has a special geography classroom, and the teacher often uses a proje

ctor to display maps and images of different terrains to help the children better understand the lesson.

All the devices were judged to be viable, and the package

  sent to Heathrow Airport burst into flames after being opened by staff. Nobody was injured by the devices and no arrests have been made.

  The packages were posted with Irish stamps and had return addresses in Dublin, prompting Irish police to join the investigation. The packages were all A4-size

d white postal bags containing yellow padded bags, which were capable of igniting when opened.

  Police Scotland confirmed that a controlled explosion was carried out on the p

ackage found at the University of Glasgow on March 6 as a precautionary measure.

  The Metropolitan Police and Police Scotland said in a joint statem

ent that the devices “bore similarities” to past packages “linked to dissident groups asso

ciated with Northern Ireland related terrorism,” and that “officers were already looking at this as a line of enquiry.”

  The devices did not cause any injuries or damage.

Taxpayers whose main business is postal services, telecom

postal services, telecommunications, modern services or consu

mer services will receive 10 percent additional input VAT deduction before the end of 2021.

An increase in the overpaid VAT following this round of tax cuts will be refunded.

“The planned VAT cuts must be delivered as soon as possible,” Li said.

“Their implementation must be closely monitored to ensure that tax burdens are meaningfully reduced

in the major industries and lowered to various extents in some industries. All industries will see their taxes go down, not up.

“In case of an increased tax burden due to inadequate deducti

ons in certain individual industries, the government will work out targeted solutions,” he added.

The rules, coming into effect on Jan 1, 2019, also stipulate

that a stay of less than 24 hours on the mainland will not be counted as a day, and the count started from Jan. 1 this year.

The adjustment marked more generous tax exemptions on overseas-sourced incomes of foreigne

rs and non-mainland citizens working in the mainland. The move will attract more foreign investm

ent and overseas talent to work in the mainland, the STA said in a statement on its website.

Previously, the exemption was for tax residents who have lived on the mainland for less than five years.A house collapse triggered by a lan

dslide in North China’s Shanxi province has caused 10 deaths and left another 10 missing, local authorities said Sunday.

city, when a landslide toppled two residential buildings, a makeshift house and a public bathhouse.

  Premji’s foundation focuses on supporting education, and ru

ns the Azim Premji University in Bangalore. Its billionaire benefactor’s latest donation coul

d help it open a second university and “scale up significantly,” the organization said.
