r plant, said the four reactors are the world’s first-ever third-g
上海419eneration pressurized water reactors that are being built without any time overruns.
Zheng Mingguang, president of Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Inst
itute Co Ltd, an affiliate of the State Power Investment Corp, said China has accumulated precious experiences and上海419女神会所
capabilities in nuclear power project design, construction, and operation over the past few decades.
By the end of June, China had 47 reactors in operation with a capacity of about 48.73 million kW, and the nuclear power
上海419plants produced about 160 billion kWh of electricity in the first half of 2019, up 23.09 percent year-on-year and acc
ounted for 4.75 percent of the total electricity generated in China, according to the China Nuclear Energy Association.
“We used to lag behind, but thanks to efforts of several generations of researchers, China is now among the few cou上海419女神会所
ntries in the world to have a comprehensive third-generation nuclear power industrial chain,” said Zheng, who is a
lso chief engineer of CAP1400, a third-generation nuclear reactor technology developed by the institute.
上海419China is among the best in the world’s nuclear power industry, with di
stinct competitive advantages to export nuclear power projects, he said.
CAP1400 utilizes proven technologies and takes advantage of superior design features to reduce costs and meet high上海419女神会所
safety requirements, he said, adding China is able to design and manufacture key equipment and materials.
Over 85 percent of components and devices of CAP1400, including key ones s
上海419uch as steam generators, pressure vessels, accumulators, and squib valves, can
be domestically manufactured, thanks to efforts and innovations from both State-owned and private Chinese com上海419女神会所
panies, while the rest can be sourced from multiple foreign suppliers, according to Zheng
ina and others involved in the Belt and Road Initiative to achieve the goals of the United Na
上海楼凤女神会所tions’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development through capacity building.
While proactively making use of multilateral cooperation channels such as the BRI to promote environmental cooperation, China has also established a bila
teral environmental cooperation mechanism with Russia and Kazakhstan. The top environmental watchdogs of Ch上海楼凤

上海419论坛女神会所b seekers, college graduates have an entire year to find jobs. In addition, college gra

As for migrant workers, they have always been flexible in the job ma上海419论坛

上海419论坛女神会所The government, on its part, should improve its economic efficiency, overcome
uncertainties and take measures to fulfill enterprises’ requirements to ensure sustained eco

Take college graduates for example. The majority of them expect to get
a salary higher than the existing market rate－and many of them prefer to work in China’s

er capita from 2010 to 2020 and clearly will reach that goal.
上海千花网女神会所Nicholas Lardy, an often-cited Washington-based expert on the Chinese economy, argues i
n his recent book The State Strikes Back: The End of Economic Reform in China that China could have co
上海千花网ntinued to grow at 10 percent per year throughout this decade if not for policy mistakes.
His core argument is that Japan and South Korea continued high growth r
ates until they reached GDP per capita equal to 60 to 70 percent of the US, so why can’t China?上海千花网
With all due respect, I think this is a silly argument. The early growth in both Japan and South Korea was based on for
上海千花网eign demand for exports. In South Korea, these exports were manufactured largely by state-led companies.
China is a much larger economy. There is not enough potential import demand in the worl
d to continue as a main driver of the economy’s growth. It takes longer to grow organically from domestic demand.
上海千花网女神会所Japan saw very fast economic growth from the 1950s to the 1970s based on technological c
atch-up and on fast export growth to the US. The export industries of Japan – mostly cars and electronics –
are extremely competitive. But, much of the domestic economy is protected and inefficient.上海千花网
A series of trade disputes with the US in the 1970s and 1980s culminat
上海千花网女神会所ed in the Plaza Accords in 1985 that limited Japanese exports to the US and forced Jap
an to roughly double the value of the yen. So, export-led growth was no-longer an option.
Instead of opening-up and reforming its domestic economy, Japan first chose to use monetary stimulus in the late 1980s, which上海千花网
resulted in an immense real-estate bubble and led to the real-estate and stock market collapses in 1990 to 1992.
Through the 1990s and 2000s, Japan then tried to use very large infrastructure investm上海千花网女神会所
ents to stimulate the economy. This just resulted in negligible growth, ecological damage and a government-d
ebt-to-GDP ratio of more than 200 percent – by far the highest in the world. In contrast, China’s strategy of str
uctural reform, opening up, and increasing domestic competition will lead to more sustainable GDP growth.
n of Hubei province, announced that it had punished 15 local officials for constructing a bridge that caused the de
上海419品茶微信aths of 36 Chinese sturgeons, which are a critically endangered species. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:
In September 2018, when a company was constructing the local Miyue Bridge in Jingzhou, Hubei province, a nearby C
hinese sturgeon breeding base found that their Chinese sturgeons suffered and were jumping out of the water. 上海419
An investigation concluded that it was the noise of the construction that distur
上海419bed the fish. However, the local government upon receiving the investigation report si
mply passed the buck from one department to another. The construction did not stop until one month later, but th
e tragedy had already happened because 36 Chinese sturgeons, whose number is lower than 1,000 nationwide, died. 上海419品茶微信
A later probe even found that the construction project had not undergone any environmental impact assessment. The ca
上海419e reflects the lack of any environmental protection awareness among many local officials, whose sole co
ncern is GDP growth. The construction of the bridge will probably result in tens of millions of yuan in GDP growth. C
ompared to that, in their minds, the lives of a few Chinese sturgeons are expendable. 上海419
For a long time, wildlife protection and other aspects of environmental protection have
上海419品茶微信been considered a job that belongs to environmental departments only. In this case, the local
government of Jingzhou received complaints first, but they simply passed them on.
Even when experts reached their conclusions, the bridge constr 上海419
uction still continued. It did not stop until the media reported on the incident.
This is the first of its kind, in which local officials have been punished for failing to properly protect an endangered species. Mo
上海419品茶微信re important, the majority of the 15 punished officials serve in administrative offices, not just the one responsible for wi
ldlife protection. In other words, wildlife protection is considered a job for every department.
Let’s hope it will guide more officials nationwide to have a deeper understanding of the importance of wildlife protection.
