The government aims to build the Xiongan New Area into a model fo

Olympic Forest Park offers range of activities, abundant wildlife
The most crowded place in Beijing on a typical weekend morning is not the Sanyu上海楼凤
anli Market or the Sanlitun shopping area, but a park near the North Fifth Ring Road.
Entering through the park’s south gate, you’ll typically see a group of people to the left warming up for exercises, cha

Borrowing costs will get lower for companies in China starting Tuesday through a
key interest rate reform brought out by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, to maintain ec上海419
onomic momentum amid the continuing trade friction with the United States.
上海419女神会所Analysts say the interest rate reform will lower financing costs for small a
nd private companies and encourage investment in the manufacturing sector.
The PBOC unveiled the policy over the weekend, saying it would introduce a new reference rate, the loan prime rate－the pr上海419
ice of loans banks offer their best clients－for setting the prices of business and household loans. The earlier re
上海419ference rate, the one-year benchmark lending rate, will be replaced in the future.
The announcement is seen as China’s most significant market-based interest rate reform for over a decade, experts said.上海419女神会所
The PBOC said in a statement that, starting Tuesday, 18 qualified commer
cial banks, including State-owned banks, city and rural commercial banks and foreign banks, will report their lend
上海419ing reference rate every month. Analysts expect the first loan prime rate will be much lower than the current 4.35 per
cent one-year benchmark lending rate, which has been unchanged since August 2015.
The statement said commercial banks will be allo上海419
wed to float the lending rates up by certain percentage points above the medium-ter
上海419女神会所m lending facility rate of the central bank. The medium-term lending rate is the cost that commercial banks sho
uld pay for borrowing from the central bank, and it was set at 3.3 percent on Thursday.
Sheng Songcheng, a central bank adviser and former head of the PBOC’s
statistics department, said the reform will help keep lending rates lower.
Moreover, the changes will enable the PBOC to effectively influence Chin上海419女神会所
a’s entire interest rate system by selling or buying financial instruments on the open
market, much like how Western central banks implement monetary policy, Sheng said.
More than 80 percent of Chinese parents have made arrangements for their young children du

In response to a lawsuit against its “no outside food and beverage” policy, Sha

The suit was brought by a law school student in Shanghai after she was tol上海夜生活女神会所

上海后花园女神会所The IMF has long been committed to promoting international financial stability
and currency cooperation, redressing the imbalances of international payments, Zhu said.
Citing previous market performance, Zhu said the yuan has depreciated against the dollar fo上海后花园
llowing Washington’s renewed threat of tariff hikes on Chinese goods. Similarly, the yuan fluctuations earlier this m
onth were a natural market reaction, resulting from trade tensions that have been escalated by the US, she said.
上海后花园The yuan weakened to above 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade last week,
after Washington’s threat to slap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods starting Sept 1.上海后花园女神会所
Shortly after the yuan fell beyond the psychological threshold, the US Treasury Departme
nt declared that China was manipulating its currency to achieve unfair trade advantage.上海后花园
Zhu said that despite the trade tensions over the past year and a hal

The IMF report, referring to last year’s performance of the yuan, also said that even上海后花园女神会所
though the Chinese currency depreciated against the dollar fairly rapidly
from mid-June to early August, it was “broadly stable” against a basket of benchmark currencies.上海后花园
Moreover, the Chinese monetary authorities took measures, including reintroducing a countercyclical adjus
tment factor, to resist depreciation pressure during that period, according to the report, which is based on the IMF’s latest
上海后花园女神会所Article IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.
The IMF report released last week suggests that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, said Yu Yongding, a se
nior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant for the CF40 forum.上海后花园女神会所
The IMF report provides evidence that, rather than artificially depreci
ating the yuan for trade advantage, as the US administration alleged, China has shown a
pattern of commitment to keeping the yuan generally in equilibrium at an adaptive
level, said Liu Chunsheng, an associate professor at Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.
