Another series of miles上海会所 stemmed from the UA

China Economic Forum, where 19 agreements and memorandums were signed by a broad range of sect

上海会所ors between numerous UAE and China businesses. This forum showed the level of sophistication achieved in the UAE-Ch

ina relationship, as opportunities for joint action for investment were explored with a high-ranking ministerial

上海会所delegation and business leaders from the respeuch achievements are the result of decades of hard work,

since the first visit of the late Sheikh Zayed in 1990, as the first leader to China from the Arab region.

There was a fitting send-off toward the end of the visit, as a celebration上海会所

was held marking the 35th anniversary of the establishment of friendship and bilateral rel

ations between the United Arab Emirates and the People’s Republic of China. A grand ceremony took place in Be

上海会所品茶微信ijing, which was attended by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, China’s Vice-President Wang Qi

shan, the staff of the diplomatic mission and many high-level dignitaries, ministers, businesses and investors. T

here were even more agreements and memorandums achieved on the sidelines of this event, between a number of E上海会所

mirati and Chinese businesses, five more to cap off an extremely fruitful trip to China.

The celebration culminated with the unveiling by His Highness of a new building for the new UAE embassy to China in B上海会所品茶微信

eijing. A modern and forward-looking building, this provides a physical expression of the long-lasting vision for th

上海会所e UAE-China relationship. The new embassy is a symbol in itself, and a physical expression of a blueprint come to

life, as the comprehensive strategic partnership outlined last year is in full swing, pro

gressing and in action. Our relationship has now reached a higher level, with bilateral cooperation in full swing.

The collective vision between our countries is bold. His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bi上海会所品茶微信

n Zayed Al Nahyan emphasized, “The two sides are laying pillars for the next 100 years, beginning wit

上海会所h steps to teach the Chinese language in more than 200 schools in the UAE.” The vision of His Highness is supported by a

memorandum between the UAE Ministry of Education and the Confucius Institute headquarters of China, which wi上海会所品茶微信

rer communication and understanding in a shared lingua franca for generations to come.

Re-weighting of indexes 上海会所affect capital flows

Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they inten

上海会所d, to increase the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.

Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MSCI上海会所品茶微信

Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la

上海会所rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent-a significant inc

rease from the current 0.7 percent-of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.

The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese mainland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated Chi上海会所

na’s A-shares to emerging market status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon f

上海会所品茶微信ull implementation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.

And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-den上海会所

ominated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R

ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.上海会所品茶微信

The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a

sizable share of the investible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tr

上海会所acked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and

other investors. And the re-weighting of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capit

al across emerging markets. As a result, China’s asset market will inevitably become more important for glo上海会所

bal investors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.

上海会所品茶微信Welcome shift for Chinese firms and global investors

An increased weighting for China’s securities in these indexes in the MSCI would me

an a larger allocation of AUM by foreign fund managers into the Chinese markets. While this shift would b上海会所品茶微信

e a welcome development for both Chinese enterprises seeking financing and global i

nvestors searching for emerging opportunities, it potentially represents bad news for other emerging markets.

The rural rejuvenation strategy, released last year, aims to reduce

the gap between rural and urban areas and modernize China’s agriculture and rural areas by 2035.

上海会所品茶微信Yu Fawen, a researcher in rural development at the Chinese Academy of Social Scienc

vironmental pollution, which should be addressed while carrying out the rural rejuvenation strategy.

Rural areas face many challenges – lack of investment, inadequate infrastructure and insuffi上海会所品茶微信

“The government needs to increase investment in improving infrastructure in rural areas, and more efforts are need上海会所品茶微信

Oil prices jump amid c上海会所品茶微信n conflict

Oil prices rallie上海会所品茶微信d on Thursday as the tensions between Washington and Tehran escalated after Iran shot down a US military drone.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps on Thursday announced that its air force downed “a US RQ-4 Global Hawk spy dr

For many solo diners, the most trying times are Chinese festiv

Late last year, Pu Kunhong decided to conduct a test. On New Year’s Eve, the 21-year-o

ld visited a well-known hotpot chain on his own to see how people would react.

Inside the packed restaurant, diners sat around tables, dropping meat, fish

balls and vegetables into boiling cauldrons and chatting happily amid the rising steam.

Pu sat opposite a large stuffed teddy bear-placed at his table by the management to ac

t as a companion-and quietly added slices of raw beef to the broth bubbling in his cauldron.

Providing large stuffed toys as companions is just one wa

y the restaurant attempts to put solo diners at ease and reduce the stigma of eating out alone.

“The stuffed bear brought a sense of warmth and security, and I didn’t feel embarrassed eating on my own,” Pu said.

Experts believe the animal-friendly tours are part of an em

n emerging trend that will benefit animal protection work in the long run.

The survey, released last week, found that more than 90 perce

into account whether their activities negatively affected the animals before making future tour decisions.

“Wildlife-friendly travel plays a crucial role in the healthy growth of wildlife tourism. The

research shows the responsibility that Chinese travelers would like to take, which is very enc

ouraging,” said Zhao Zhonghua, chief representative of the World Animal Protection China office.

The research was based on 2,206 questionnaires and jointly conducted by marketing com
