Paul Chan Mo-po, financial secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administ

rative Region, said the government has cut its forecast of the region’s Gross Domestic Pro

上海乌托邦品茶微信duct, which is also known as GDP, to between 0 and 1 percent year-on-year for the whole of 2019. At the beginning of th

is year, the government had predicted GDP for 2019 would have been between 2 and 3 percent.

The downgrade in the forecast was attributed to the negative impact of prolonged pr

otests and violent clashes in the city, as well as the escalation of the Sino-US trade conflict since August. 上海乌托邦

Hong Kong’s GDP recorded a 0.6 percent year-on-year growth for both the first and second quarter of this year.

Such remarks distort th上海后花园which is that it is the

 criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.

And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园

tioned remarks from these prominent US political figures belies both those denials, since they have incited

上海后花园Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with both the SAR government and the central government.

If the increasing violent acts employed by the Hong Kong demonstrators are still being categorized as p上海后花园女神会所

eaceful calls for democracy by these US politicians and others, what happened in Hong Kong in the pa

st weeks has shown people around the world the ugly and violent side of Western-style democracy.

Here is what rioters have done in Hong Kong in the name of upholding democracy上海后花园

They have repeatedly occupied public spaces to stage illegal demonstrations, they have blocked roads and h

ijacked subway carriages so that people cannot go to work, they have attacked police officers, police stations and pol

上海后花园女神会所ice family quarters, even passers-by, and they have stormed the airport forcing it to shut down three times so far this month.

The Hong Kong police have done what they are supposed to do, which is enforce the law, fight crimes and uphold social order.

Yet by turning a blind eye to the iron-clad evidence of what is happening in the SAR, some polit上海后花园

icians in the US have criticized the Hong Kong police claiming they have used excessive force. One only has to re

call the police actions in Ferguson in the US and in Paris, France, to see how restrained the Hong Kong police have bee上海后花园女神会所

n. But using a double standard in this way has become typical US behavior. Anti-China forces in the West should not un

derestimate China’s determination to safeguard stability and prosperity in Hong Kong. Nor should they un上海后花园

derestimate China’s capability to defend its territorial sovereignty and security.

Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an

y illusion they may have that they will get away with their illegal acts and crimes. And th上海后花园女神会所

e SAR government will continue to enforce the law in the city and bring any lawbreakers to justice.

Signs of ‘terrorism’ see 上海419rest their way throug

 arrested as unlawful protests continue, violent acts spread over weekend in SAR

Violence has escalated to a point that smacks of terrorism in the Hong Kong Special 上海419

Administrative Region, China’s top authority on the city’s affairs warned on Monday.

 上海419品茶微信In Beijing, Yang Guang, a spokesman for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Coun

cil, said radical protesters have repeatedly attacked police officers in the past few days and have com

mitted serious violent crimes. Such violence has begun to show the “first signs of terrorism”, Yang said. 上海419

Yang strongly condemned protesters who threw gasoline bombs at police officers on Sunday night.

 上海419品茶微信A very small number of rioters hurled the bombs at police officers at police sta

tions in Cheung Sha Wan, Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai on Sunday night. A police off

icer was hit by one such bomb thrown by a protester in Tsim Sha Tsui, causing burns to his legs.

An initial diagnosis showed that the officer suffered second-degree bu 上海419品茶微信

rns on 10 percent of his left leg, and first-degree burns on 3 percent of his right leg.

“We express our strong indignation and condemnation of this sinister, reckless and serious crime,” Yang said.

Such violent acts have brutally violated the rule of law and social order in Hong Kon 上海419

g, seriously threatened the lives of Hong Kong citizens and challenged Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, he added. Such

acts must be “resolutely cracked down upon” in accordance with the law, and the affairs of

Police will strictly enforc上海419ng Kong Special Admi

ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko

上海419品茶微信wloon and the New Territories and said that police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.

The HKSAR said on Saturday that protesters who breach the law should be brought to justice, while the police reiter上海419

ated on early Sunday that anyone participating in an unauthorized assembly will be committing an offence.

A large group of protesters gathered in Tai Po on Friday although their request of such an event had been turned down by the police.

上海419品茶微信They damaged public properties and blocked thoroughfares including the K

owloon entrance of the Cross-Harbor Tunnel, and they also set fires in various places.

According to the police, some protesters aimed laser beams at police officers and some even hurled objects and stones at police officers.

After repeated warnin上海419gs, the police dispersed the protesters, sometime using tear gas when necessary.

During the operation, HKSAR police arrested 16 people for unlawful assembly, possession of offe

上海419nsive weapon, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of duties.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r

ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch上海419品茶微信

ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.

The IMF said that the country’s external position in 2018 was “broadly in li

上海419ne with the level consistent with medium-term fundamentals and desirable policies”.

The organization also welcomed China’s efforts to reform its exchange rate regime to make the yuan more fle

xible, according to its report released after its latest Article IV consultation with China that concluded on July 31.上海419品茶微信

The clarification by the IMF indicates that the US Treasury’s reckless claim on Mon

day of China engaging in currency manipulation is nothing but unfounded finger-pointing.

IMF report proves 上海419t manipulating currency

The latest report by International Monetary Fund (IMF) conclude

上海419d that the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan was “broadly in line with medium-term f

undamentals”, and the Chinese monetary authority barely intervened in the foreign exchange market.上海419

The report, released late Friday in Washington, was a blow to the lab

eling of China as “a currency manipulator” by the US administration, experts said.

The value of the Chinese currency and the country’s external position i

上海419品茶微信n 2018 were “broadly in line with the level consistent with medium-term fun

damentals and desirable policies,” the report said, citing that China’s current account surplus fell by around 1 pe

rcentage point to 0.4 percent of GDP in 2018 and is projected to remain contained at 0.5 percent of GDP in 2019.

Estimates showed that the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central ban上海419

k, has had “little FX intervention”, said the report, which is based on IMF’s latest Ar

ticle IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.

上海419品茶微信The IMF’s conclusion came in just four days after the US Treasury officially la

beled China as a “currency manipulator” on Monday. The Chinese yuan

weakened to beyond 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade earlier this week.上海419

“The IMF conclusion is objective and reflected that the renminbi was assessed to be broadly

in line with medium-term fundamentals. The result kept pace with what it said in July,” said Zhang Xiaohui, a s

上海419品茶微信enior researcher of the China Finance 40 Forum (CF40), and former assistant governor of the PBOC.

What the IMF concluded is a just decision, reflecting that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, according to Yu Yo

ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant of CF40.

The US Treasury design上海千花坊 was seen by analysts a

 a new excuse for more protectionist measures.The Treasury move reeks of arbitrariness and unilater

上海千花坊alism, and will disrupt international trade rules and order as well as dampened investors’ confidence, experts said.

“By labeling China a currency manipulator, the US is in fact continuing its maximum-

pressure approach in trade talks,” said Liao Qun, chief economist of the China CITIC Bank International.上海千花坊女神会所

China and the US have been locked up in drawn-out trade disputes since last year.

On Monday, Chinese companies have halted purchases of US farm prod

上海千花坊uce after the US decided to impose additional 10-percent tariffs on $300 billion worth of

Chinese imports, as the US move seriously violated the consensus reached by the two heads of state in Osaka.

NO INTENTION TO DEVALUATE CURRENCY

上海千花坊女神会所China has long been committed to keeping the yuan’s exchang

e rate basically stable at a reasonable and balanced level, the central bank said.

The Chinese currency is the strongest among the G20 and is one of the currencies that has seen substantial appreciation.

From the beginning of 2005 to June this year, the currency’s nominal e上海千花坊

xchange rate appreciated 38 percent and real exchange rate strengthened 47 percent.

Last month, the IMF found in its latest annual assessment that the renminbi exchange rate was broadly in line with fundamentals.上海千花坊女神会所

From the macro perspective, the yuan’s exchange rate is buoyed by the coun

try’s sound fundamentals, strong economic resilience, stable fiscal position, c上海千花坊

ontrollable financial risks, balanced cross-border capital movement and sufficient foreign exchange reserves.

China has no intention to gain trade advantages by devaluing its currency, as the yuan’

上海千花坊女神会所s depreciation cannot necessarily lift exports, said Song Xiangyan, an analyst with the PBOC.

A large devaluation probably leads to panic capital outflows and competitive currency devaluation of China’s trading par

tners, which will undermine the country’s financial stability and hurt imports, Song added.

China will be committed to the promises on exchange rates made at all G20 summit上海千花坊女神会所

s and abide by a market-determined exchange rate system, the PBOC governor Yi Gang said Monday.

Refusing competitive devaluation, the country will not resort to exchange r

ates in handling external uncertainties such as trade disputes, Yi said.

In Japan, a controversial statue symbolizing “comfort women” was withd

上海会所Comfort women is a euphemism for those, many of them Korean, forced to work in Ja

Japan says the issue was settled by past agreements and apologies but many ROK citizens say J上海会所

“Yesterday we also received a fax saying, ‘Get rid of it fast or else I’m上海会所品茶微信
