On the eve of the summit, Greenpeace activists projected the image of a bomb-sh

Statistics from a property research institution showed that Hangzhou, with a total lan上海千花坊
d revenue of 142.3 billion yuan ($20.71 billion), has become the “king of land revenue” during the first six months of this year.
According to data from the China Index Academy, a Beijing-based property research institution, the tot
al land transaction fees in 300 major Chinese cities was 2.25 trillion yuan in the first half, a 16 percent year-on-year increase.

tionwide. It was followed by Wuhan, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing, whose land income all exceeded 60 billion yuan.

Foshan in Guangzhou province, Changzhou in Jiangsu province and Shaoxing in Zhejiang province all entered the top 20 cities ranking.
In terms of planning construction areas, Wuhan, with 24.75 million square meters, took the top spo

When it comes to land purchases, Country Garden, a Hong Kong-listed proper

The enthusiasm of property developers grew as the land market showed signs of rebound since March, the academy said. Durin

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan
achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F
rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.
The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open
ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.
This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl
e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.
The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso
n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.
It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi
t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all
of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V
alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.
Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft
er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo
bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.
It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to
retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o
ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.
hina is drafting a list of foreign parties considered “unreliable enti
ties” that harm the interests of Chinese companies, said the Ministry of Commerce on Friday.
Detailed measures of the plan are to be disclosed at a later date.
The list will target companies, people and organizations that fail to abide by market rules, violate th
e spirit of contract, block Chinese companies for non-commercial reasons, and severely violate Chinese co
mpanies’ legitimate rights, said Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesman, in a media briefing on Friday.
“Due to the increasing uncertainties in the global economy, including
the rising trade protectionism and unilateralism, the multilateral trading system is facing s
evere challenges and regular international commercial activities have been disrupted,” Gao said.
The growth of manufacturing activity in China eased in April but remained within expansion territory, adding to the confidence that the country’s economy is stabilizing.
The purchasing managers index for the country’s manufacturing sector came in at 50.1 in A
pril, slightly down from 50.5 in March, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday.
A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while one below it reflects contraction.
Senior NBS official Zhao Qinghe said in a statement that factory activity continued a steady ex
pansion in April, with the subindexes for production and for new orders standing respectively at 52.1 and 51.4. T
he readings are slightly lower than those in March, but they are higher than the average performance of the first quarter.
“Market demand is driving a stable growth in production,” Zhao said, adding strong growth in e
merging industries, such as high-tech and equipment manufacturing, also contributed to the steady performance.
