According to the China CDC, the country saw no sudden spikes in measles last year, as f

“In China, there is room to improve in terms of rounding up the domestic immunization program and further improving the vaccination rate,” Wang said.

上海品茶微信Public health experts in China have underscored their confidence in the safety and efficacy of domestic vaccines and called for concerted efforts to eradicate vaccine-preventable diseases.

Gao Fu, head of the China CDC, reaffirmed that vaccines produced in China are among “the best in the world” and urged the public to maintain confidence in domestically produced vaccines.

hina plans to introduce a compensation system for people who report adverse events linked to preventive vaccinations, according to a draft law under review at the top legislature.上海品茶微信女神会所

Compensation must be provided in cases of an adverse event leading to death, serious disability or o

rgan injury during or after vaccination, or when the possibility of an adverse event cannot be excluded, the draft says.

The draft vaccine administration law was submitted Saturday to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress for the second reading.

The draft increases penalties on illegal activities, such as manufacturing and selling fake or substan上海品茶微信女神会所

dard vaccines, and stipulates a punitive compensation to those who sell or use substandard vaccines with knowledge, causin

g death or serious health consequences.
“The newly proposed law on vaccine management, currently under review by China’s

上海品茶微信女神会所top legislative body, speaks volume about the country’s determination to establish the most stringent standards and impleme

t the strongest supervision, toughest penalties and accountability in the vaccine sector,” he said.

Gao added that recent scandals involving ineffective or fake va上海品茶微信女神会所

ccines in China do not reflect the mainstream quality of domestic vaccines.

“It is imperative for the whole society to restore public confidence in vaccines and the national immunization program,” he said.

hinese consumers to drive future global growth

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumer 上海品茶微信s will be the driving force of future global economic growth.

Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief econom

i 上海品茶微信st at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the celebration of the 70th anniversary of th

e founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.

“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.

“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP gr 上海品茶微信owth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pri

ces (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next

year to the next decade is somewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.上海品茶微信

O’Neill i 上海品茶微信s known for coining the term BRIC, the group term for Brazil, Russia, India and China, in 2001, to describe the four rapidly-developing nations that symbolized the shifting balance in the global economy.

South Africa was added to the group nine years later, making it BRICS.

“China remains the only one of the BRICS countries that aft上海品茶微信er 17 years has actually done exactly what we had expected it would achieve,” he said.

His opinion is that the ongoing trade dispute with the Un

ited States is not the most important challenge the country currently faces.

To continue its success, O’Neill said, China ne

上海品茶微信女神会所eds to address aspects of its aging population, which is a key contr

ibutor to the economic growth slowdown, and tackle environmental issues and population control in urban areas.

O’Neill is a former British commercial secretary to the Treasury. He said the Belt and Road Initiative, or BRI, initiated six ye

ars ago, will play a “hugely important” role in global trade, which has been buffeted by rising protectionism and unilateralism.

The BRI aims to build the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road and deliver policies, infra

structure, trade, financial and people-to-people c上海品茶微信女神会所onnectivity via a new platform for a brighter future.

“If it can be implemented collectively, it can transform the trade pattern in Asia, p

articularly between China and India, two of the major BRICS countries,” he added.

The 5.1 percentage point growth of leverage ratio is

s out of ou上海品茶微信女神会所r expectations, and it was maintained because of countercyclical policies,” said Zhang Xiaojing, a senior economist with the CASS.

But the deleveraging process should continue, and more measures will be introduced to ease the debt burden, especially

for the private sector, said Lian Weiliang, deputy head of the National Development and Reform Commission.

One of the key measures is to further promote the debt-to-equity s

wap program, to inject more social funds into indebted companies through holding the co

mpanies’ shares, the NDRC official said. “We will choose more qualified private companies to join this program.”

By the end of April, the total value of debt-to-equity swap reached 2.3 trillion yuan ($332.8

billion). More than 20 percent was for the centra上海品茶微信女神会所l State-owned enterprises, inclu

In contrast, the US seems to take it for granted that tarif

s are a weapon it can employ to bring China to its knees and extract one-sided

concessions, apparently ignorant to the fac

t that China is not what it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s when the country was forced into signing humil

iating treaties, which resulted in the opening of trading ports and paying of indemnities to Western powers.

Perhaps the blame for the breakdown in the talks should be laid at the door of the mind-set o

f the West, which sees only winners and losers, rather than a holistic whole in

which all benefit from each other.

That Eastern viewpoint explains why

he scholars suggested that authorities such as th

 National Health Commission should monitor all gene-editing centers and IVF clinics in China to ensure trials are in line with regulations.

A national registry dedicated to clinical trials involving cell technologies should be established to pro

mote greater transparency, they said, so that before a trial begins scientists would need to pass an

ethics review and provide a list of names of all participating scientists and institutions.

Universities and research institutes should strengthen education and

training in bioethics and scientific and medical professionalism, covering research sci

entists and students of science, medicine and the humanities at all levels, they said.

In addition, more efforts should be undertaken to eliminate prejudice against people wi

th disabilities, which exists in the minds of some scholars, they said. Following the gene-edited baby incid

ent, government departments have vowed to improve supervision, and new regulations are being made or revised.
