The legacy plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Win

ter Games was unveiled in February. Plans aim to optimize the

venues’ designs and operations to be beneficial to the hosting regions after 2022.

“Here, you have the venues from 2008 that are going to be used in 2022 for a complete set of winter sports. This is a wonde

rful legacy story,” said Juan Antonio Samaranch, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee.

Powering all the 2022 venues using green energy while minimizing environmental impacts, while

planning for their post-Games operations, are key in venue preparation this year, Liu said.

To support the preparations financially, Beijing 2022 has signed nine domestic market

ing partners and four second-tier sponsors, while the Games’ licensing program, whic

Balancing growth with structural reformting perform

After a disappointing performance in 2018, China’s economy appears to be stabiliz

ing. In the first quarter of 2019, GDP growth, at 6.4 percent year-on-year, matched that of the previous quarter. But grow

th in industrial production exceeded expectations, expanding by 6.5 percent year-on-year (and by 8.5 percent in Mar

ch). Even exports growth was positive, albeit weak, despite the ongoing trade frictions with the United States.

Moreover, fixed-asset investment (FAI) grew by 6.3 percent-0.2 percentage points higher than in the previous quar

ter. Investment in real estate grew the fastest (11.8 percent), followed by manufacturing (4.6 percent) and in

frastructure (4.4 percent). The growth of investment both in real estate and infrastru

cture was stronger not only sequentially, but also year-on-year. As usual, consumption growth was stable.

Sarah Daley, a student at the University of Virginia, has deep connectio

ns with China. She spent the summer of 2018 teach

ing English in Hebei province and has a younger sister who was adopted from China in 2009. Both experiences left

her with positive impressions of Chinese people and long-lasting friendships.

Those connections led to Daley being honored by the Chinese embassy

in the United States during an award ceremony in Washington on Saturday, after she sha

red her stories with the world through an event hosted by the embassy and China Daily.

At the botanic park, one of the core areas of the expo

more than 100 projectors were installed to digitally recreate mangrove fo

rests and the environment surrounding them: tropical seas, tides and beaches.

With sound, light and electrical effects, the exhibition shows how mangroves, one of the very few vegetation env

ironments that can survive in coastal waters, thrive in the tides and change their surroundings for the better.

Tianjin resident Li Lingyan, who visited the park on Monday, was fascinated by the mangrove exhibition.

“Looking at the exhibit, it is as though I was brought to the seashore to se

e how mangroves grow in a tough environment. It was an amazing process,” she said.

” I was totally thrilled, and I got to learn a lot about mangroves.”

Near Gate No 5 of the park, “a forest of lights and shadows” draws crowds.

He is scheduled to meet with European Council Presi

sident Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Tuesday at the European Union headquarters in the Belgian capital.

The leaders of the two sides will exchange views on China-EU relations and major international

and regional issues of common concern. A number of agreements are to be signed after that.

This is Li’s fifth time attending the China-EU leaders’ meeting as prem

ier, and his sixth visit to a Central and Eastern European nation to attend the China-CEEC

meeting, with the previous five being in Romania, Serbia, Latvia, Hungary and Bulgaria.

Vice-Foreign Minister Wang Chao, who oversees China’s relations with EU

nations, said at a briefing last week that the EU is a highly integrated regional bloc an

d a vital strategic force in the international community. China and the EU share broad com

mon interests in pragmatic cooperation and have a common stance regarding multilateralism and free trade, he said.

The EU has been China’s biggest trading partner for 15 consecutive years and Chin

a is the regional bloc’s second-largest trading partner after the United States, with bilater

The Abuja–Kaduna Railway, as the first segment of the

 Lagos–Kano standard gauge project, the first standard gauge railway in Nigeria and West A

frica, was officially inaugurated and started commercial operation on July 26, 2016.

The railway, constructed by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, is the first overseas railway fully adopting the Chinese r

ailway standard. Spanning 186.5 kilometers, it alleviates traffic tension, improves the investment envir

onment and promotes the coordinated development of regional economy and society.

By Jan 11, the train service had delivered 1.23 million passengers and had safely operated for 900 days without any major accident recorded since its inception.

The China-funded Colombo Port City, the largest project between C

hina and Sri Lanka under the Belt and Road Initiative, completed land reclamation of 269 hectares in January.

In addition, hydro-structure construction will be completed by the middle

of this year. The port city’s municipal facilities construction is expected to be completed in J

uly 2020. At the same time, investment promotion of the city is also being carried out.

But one of the first things taught to economics gradu

 students, even back in my day, is to be wary of the perils of data mining. And the middle-income tra

p is a classic example of the pitfalls of endless number crunching. Give me a database and a po

werful computer, and I can “validate” almost any economic relationship masquerading as an analytical co

njecture. There are five key reasons to dismiss the widespread diagnosis that China is ensnared in the middle-income trap.

First, a middle-income trap may not even exist. That is the conclusion of a rigorous empirical stud

y by Lant Pritchett and Lawrence Summers that covers a broad cross section of 125 economies from 1950 to 20

10. The best they could come up with is a strong tendency for growth discontinuities and mean reversion. At the recent China Development Forum in Be

ijing, Summers went further in assessing likely outcomes in rapidly growing developing economies, dubbing any

mean-reverting slowdown as merely a tendency to close a “post-miracle gap”. Needless to say, the statistical regularity of s

uch periodic growth gaps is very different from the permanent quagmire of a growth trap.

Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

rnor’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.
