To bring an end to the protests sparked by the proposed amendments to the special administrative region’s extradit

ion law, Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced on Tuesday her ad上海千花网

ministration’s decision not to restart the suspended legislative process for the amendments, saying the “bill is dead”.

上海千花网女神会所The demonstrations, some of them violent, have threatened the health of the city’s economy and thus the well-being of its resi

e SAR government and the public, with the ultimate objective of improving governance in the SAR.上海千花网女神会所

It might be demanding too much of those leading the protests to have the kind of vision and political courage exhibited by the chief exec

上海千花网utive in her willingness to make compromises in policymaking in the face of public opposition. But they sh

ould have the wisdom to realize that persistent political conflict and unrest do not bode well for the city and residents, es

pecially at a time when the local economy is still licking its wounds from the ongoing Sino-US trade row.上海千花网女神会所

Hong Kong’s economy has slowed significantly over recent months, with the yea

上海千花网r-on-year GDP growth having eased to 0.6 percent in the first quarter of this year — the

slowest expansion in a decade — as both foreign trade and domestic consumption have been hard hit by the tra

de conflict between the Chinese mainland and the United States, the city’s two largest trading partners. Any es上海千花网女神会所

calation of the social conflict witnessed recently will only further harm Hong Kong’s economy and people’s livelihoods.

上海千花网Yet, the organizers of some of the mass rallies have said they will announce

more protests in the coming days until the bill is officially withdrawn from the legi

slative agenda. But more social unrest will only hinder efforts to tackle the fundamental problems that have a ta上海千花网

ngible effect on the lives of Hong Kong residents, particularly the younger generation — such as the severe housing s上海千花网女神会所

hortage, lack of social upward mobility and the widening wealth gap, which have fueled the social discontent.

 England — Rafael Nadal was up near the Centre Court net when Nick Kyrgios smacked a booming forehand directly at the上海千花网

Rarely does Kyrgios offer regrets, for much of anything. Instead, h

“I’m always willing to go out there and try and put on a show. I know peo

According to the agency, China will specifically lead in the e-bus market. It is estimated that by

2025, China’s e-bus fleet share will reach 50 percent, and by 2040, the ratio will rise to roughly 80 percent.

s have seen Modi front-loading India’s unique religious, cultural and civilizational links with neighboring countries.

This pragmatic approach has not just made the Sino-Indian summits most frequent but hopefully also more produ

ctive. Modi has not had as many one-on-one meetings with any other global leader. And since this trend is like

ly to continue, it could see them jointly responding to the White House’s blitzkrieg against friends and foes alike.

The fact that Russia still faces serious economic challenges and the US has slipped into confrontations with some coun

Agricultural products, chemicals and chemical products, textiles and g

In the first four months of this year, the volume of Sino-US trade dropped by 15.7 percent to $161.23 billion. In terms of product
