China will support Shenzhen, adjacent to Hong Kong, in building a demonstration pi

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.

‘s agricultural sector was plagued by inefficient production practices for上海会所品茶微信
many years, while annual output was highly susceptible to changes in climate.
For example, from 1959 to 1961 large parts of the country experienced a severe drought.上海会所
In 1961, the arid conditions reduced the total crop yield by 61 million metric tons, a 30 percent fall from 1958.
Since the early 1980s, the central leadership has attached great significan
上海会所ce to agricultural innovation. In 2015, investment in scientific and technological research reached 55 billion yu
an ($7.8 billion at today’s rates), compared with 720 million yuan in 1978, Du said.
According to the ministry, more than 96 percent of fields dedicated to the cultivation上海会所品茶微信
of major crops, including rice, corn and wheat, are sown with high-yield, resilient species.
上海会所A number of crop-breeding platforms that employ scientifically proven approaches-such as the use of “dwarf-st
erile” wheat, the “super rice” system and hybrid corn breeding-have been established to fast-t
rack improvements in edible crops and ensure the food supply is reliable and safe in the long term.
The wide application of modern farming techniques ha上海会所品茶微信
s also helped farmers to raise yields and reduce damage to the environment.
At present, environmentally friendly methods are used to prevent and control pests on 56.7 mill
ion hectares under cultivation, accounting for 15 percent of the total area affected by such pests.
上海会所Meanwhile, smarter use of pesticides in demonstra
tion areas has reduced the use of chemicals by 20 to 30 percent, the ministry said.
The use of fertilizers has been further contained as a result of a nationwide campaign l上海会所品茶微信

and improve awareness of the scientific management of fertilizers among farmers.

According to Wang, data from 326 counties have been reviewed by the natural re上海乌托邦品茶微信

Zhu Liuhua, deputy director of the State Council’s supervision team on the third national land survey, said the survey is s

Local governments told to provide accurate information to authorities
Authorities have found a series of problems上海419论坛女神会所
while carrying out the third national land survey, warning local gover

上海419论坛The problems were outlined on Friday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the central
government supervision team, and involved 20 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions.
In Qinghai province, for example, local natural resources department and sup上海419论坛
ervisory teams were blamed for not taking the field surveys seriously, nor did they urg
e that uncovered problems be corrected in accordance with rules and regulations.
In Yulin, Shaanxi province, entities did not fully carr上海419论坛女神会所
y out the investigation responsibly, resulting in imprecise
outcomes, and county-level authorities deliberately changed and forged mapping data.
“Those cases reflected problems, such as poor quality surveys a上海419论坛nd data accuracy. I hope that will be a w

He said the ministry will not tolerate the forging of data.上海419论坛女神会所
