Expat jobs in some sectors increasingreign students see

The service sector, IT and media industries have

overtaken the education industry as major job sources for expat

s in China, according to figures from the 2019 Job Fair for Foreigners in Beijing.

The job fair was organized on Sunday by the Foreign Talent Research Center and the State Administration of Foreign Exper

ts Affairs, attracting more than 500 expats with nearly 1,000 jobs available in a range of professions.

The expat job market, once dominated by language teachers, has seen a major shift. Approximatel

y half the jobs available at the fair were in the sales, media, marketing and IT sectors, including ope

nings for journalists, brand and communication managers and software engineers.

“A certain level of Mandarin proficiency is an advantage,” said Yang Jiayin, project manager of the research center. “The be

st-paying jobs generally require the ability to speak Mandarin. Positions that require fluent spoken and written Ma‘

’ndarin tend to pay more than the same jobs without the language requirement.”

Poverty alleviation high on agenda during president’s

President Xi Jinping is paying great attention to poverty reductio

n work during his inspection tour of the mountainous Chongqing municipality.

Immediately after Xi got off his plane on Monday he boarded a train and then traveled by road,

heading to a primary school and a village in the Shizhu Tujia autonomous county, in a remote part of Southwest China.

To build a moderately prosperous society, it is crucial to raise rur

al living standards, Xi said while visiting the home of Ma Pei­qing, an 85-year-old farmer

in the village of Huaxi, Zhongyi township, who joined the Communist Party of China 45 years ago.

“Seeing that the people are guaranteed the basic necessities of food and clothing, as well as bet

ter and better access to education, medical care and safe housing, I feel relieved,” Xi told the villagers.

science, compared to figure of over 10 percent wh

o do in developed countries. A key reason for that, according to exp

erts, is the lack of proper scientific learning materials, especially those for adults.

This in turn explains, at least in part, why Chinese engineers have been faring better than Chinese scientists. A certain proport

ion of the population with a good understanding of natural science should be the basis for a nation to produce large numbe

rs of excellent scientists, which in turn will render firm support to the prosperity of the nation.

Having finished the book on quantum physics, I made a thorough check of my daughter’s little

bookshelf and divided her books into a few different categories. The topics of the books ranged from dinosa

urs to animal tongues, then to everyday wisdom, yet they all had one thing in common: They were interesting.

Dinosaurs

Besides the Baby Loves Quantum Physics book, there were books l

ike How Dinosaurs Lived and Why Dogs Are Your Friends. These cartoon books tell stories just

like animations, with the only difference being is that they’re printed on paper, not viewed on an LED display.

According to our data, the demands for housekeeping and

 photography are growing fast. The house keeper with most orders on our platform earns more

than 160,000 yuan a year and the best photographer can rake in 60,000 yuan monthly,” said Chen.

Considered China’s answer to Airbnb, Xiaozhu has listed more than 500,000 shared ho

uses in 650 cities and other destinations on its platform since its foundation in 2012. Many are fitted with smart locks, smoke detectors and alarms.

According to Chen, with the Chinese economy entering the phase of “new normal”, the sharing economy will face multi-layere

d challenges, including innovating its business model, adopting intelligent technologies, and offering standardized services.

Advances in new technologies such as 5G and internet of things will bri

ng huge potential for the home-share market, which is still in its early stages, according to C

hen, who said that the company will accelerate its expansion to non-first-tier cities and rural areas.

According to latest Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of China data, over 3

billion tourists visited rural resorts last year, which collected revenues of more than 800 billion yuan.

To take advantage of rural tourism’s potential Xiaozhu last year signed a strateg

ic deal with the Tourism Development Committee of Hainan province to promote the rural homestay

Why should MPs who hate the deal back it suddenly? There a

  re arguments to be made either way. Ultimately, all the Withdrawal Agreement does is place the UK into a transition p

eriod, allowing for future negotiations about where all this ends up. If your biggest fear is remaining in the EU, then this is the case for holding your nose.

  Taking back control

  If May fails, as is widely expected, then it’s likely that MPs will do everything in their power to take control of Brexit away from the PM.

  On Monday, MPs will vote on an amendable motion. This means that the Commons vo

tes on a question put forward by the government, which MPs can amend to suit their needs.

  It is highly likely that an amendment will be made demanding that the PM allows the Comm

ons to hold a series of indicative votes so MPs can finally say what they are for, not just what they are against.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May sent her “deepest condolenc

  My thoughts are with all of those affected by this sickening act of violence,” she wrote.

  France has also stepped up security at places of worship in the light of the shootings.

  Interior Minister Christophe Castaner called for increased surveillance and patrols near “denominational spaces.”

  CNN’S Yazhou Sun, Paul Murphy and Eric Cheung, and journalist Matthew Mckew contributed to this report.

  ”I’m very lucky to come from a place like this and that’s why I became an activist,” says Toby Thorpe.

  Thorpe grew up in the Huon Valley in the far south of Tasmania. He

is helping to organize the strike in Tasmania’s capital – Hobart – because he wants to ensu

re that future generations will experience the island’s natural beauty and clean air.

  ”The reality of climate change really impacted my community this year, when bushfires r

avaged the Huon Valley, and burned over 200,000 hectares of wilderness across the state” he says.

But despite the fact that the draft law is, first and forem

ost, part of the measures to deepen reform and opening-up in order to improve China’s overall business environment, some assume Beijing is rushing t

he draft through the NPC to help trade negotiations with Washington. Such assumptions are groundless, to say the le

ast, because discussions on adjusting the existing regulatory statutes had begun around 2013. Plus, a 170-arti

cle draft foreign investment law was published for public review way back in January 2015.

Moreoverarticle draft in 2018 is nothing short

of revolutionary, as it is aimed at a strategic turn in the country’s approach to foreign inv

estment. Beijing’s concept of openness is no longer limited to offering favorable treatments to businesses, including for

eign businesses. It focuses more on providing an environment conducive to rules-based fair competition.

Roger Federer claims 100th title with revenge victory

  Federer, who moves back to number four in the world, had endured a frustrating wait since lifting his 99th tour-lev

el trophy last October in Basel, while the 20-year-old Tsitsipas was fresh from claiming the Marseille Open crown last weekend.

  ”I’m delighted. It’s great to win my eighth here in Dubai and in combination with my 100th si

ngles title,” he said.Federer imposed himself on his youthful opponent from the start, brea

king him in the very first game and then saving two break points when serving for the opening set.

  The second was closer, but Federer made his breakthrough against the Tsitsipas del

ivery in the ninth game and served out to love to clinch the title and enter the tennis history books.

  ”I don’t know if he was born when I won my first title,” he joked about his youthful

opponent in the on-court interviews, but Federer’s longevity has been remarkable.

  Since his first title as a 19-year-old, Federer has won at least one trophy in every season si

nce with at least four titles in 16 of the past 18 seasons, including a record 20 grand slam crowns.

  Frenchman Julien Boutter faced him in that Milan final

and at the time had no inkling he would go on to dominate tennis for so many years.

  ”He was still so young, still far from the top 10, never mind the best

player in the world. It’s not possible to say, but it’s not impossible for him,” he told CNN.

  Only Connors with 109 titles stands ahead of him, within Federer’s reach if he can stay motivated and injury free.

In 2018, the government introduced several policies to offer

 more support to private hospitals. According to the policies, private hospitals will have the same assessment system as

public hospitals, the government will not limit the opening of general clinics, third-party medical insti

tutions will have their own standards, and internet hospitals will be encouraged.

Judging from the policies, opening up the incremental market will c

ontinue to be an important direction for medical reform in the nex

t few years. At the same time, the government will also tighten the supervision of private hospitals, in the ho

pe of forming a diversified system with public hospitals being the main body, supplemented by private institutions.

On Nov 5 2018, President Xi Jinping gave a speech during the opening

ceremony of the China International Import Expo, stating that China is steadily expanding the

opening-up of the financial sector, and will loosen limitations on foreign investment in the medical field.

Market insiders said that this is a positive signal for China’s medical sector to attract foreign investment.

According to the notice issued by the government in 2000, forei

gn capital can contribute up to a 70 percent share of China’s medical institutions.

give full play to its advantages and seek complementary and mutually beneficial cooperation on inn

ovation and technology in the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Ba

y Area, an official of the HKSAR government said in a recent interview with Xinhua.

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area aims at building a globally influenti

strengths to serve the country’s needs,” the HKSAR government’s Secretary for Innovation and Technology Nic

holas Yang said Tuesday, one day after China unveiled an outline development plan for the Greater Bay Area.

To build an international innovation and technology hub, Hong Kong has multiple advantages due to its world-class uni

versities, high international recognition and relatively low financing cost, according to Yang.

Home to four of the world‘s top 100 universities, Hong Kong i

s well recognized for its basic scientific research, he said, adding that the newly un

veiled outline development plan may encourage other elite universities around the globe to upgrade cooperation w
