Thanks to the extension of the subsidiary policy of new e

energy vehicles (NEV), sales of NEVs reached 111,000 in March, up 100.9 percent year-o

n-year, with NEV wholesales accounting for 254,000 units in the first quarter.

CPCA predicts a 40 percent increase in NEV sales to 1.7 million

units in 2019, based on these first quarter figures.

As China began to cut manufacturing sector VAT from 16 to 13 percent on April 1, som

e imported and high-end vehicle brands lowered prices to boost sales nationwide.

As the industrial chain of domestic-made goods are comparatively longer than that of imports howe

ver, most domestic manufacturers have not lowered prices for goods, including automobiles.

“Consumers should not expect too much on price cuts of automo

biles, but choose vehicles based on demand and affordability,” CPCA said.

The objective is part of its larger goal, set in 2014, to m

move 100 million rural residents, mostly migrant workers, to cities by 2020.

Under the plan, cities with a population under 3 million should remove all limits on hukou — hous

ehold registration — and cities with populations between 3 million and 5 million should relax restrictio

ns on new migrants. Having hukou in a city generally confers more social benefits on residents.

Megacities including Beijing and Shanghai should improve the points system to qu

alify for household registration, allowing more people to settle in those cities.

“In the future, the main driving force of China’s urbanization will be conferring the benefits of urban

citizenship on rural migrant workers,” said Xu Lin, former director of the NDRC’s development plan

ning department. “In this process, it is key to offering new migrants treatment equal to that of city residents.”

China has made steady progress in urbanization, as permanent urban residents amounted

to 831 million at the end of 2018, up by 17.9 million from the previous year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.

I am a beneficiary of organ donation, and know cle

learly what it feels like to be a patient in need of transplant surgery and eagerly waiting for an

organ, since such organs are scarce,” he said. “I want to do the same to save others.”

With the number of registered organ donors increasing rapidly in China, it is expected that more patients with terminal illn

ess in need of organ transplants will be fortunate, like Zhao, and not have to wait very long.

By the end of February, the number of registered organ donors in China exceeded 1.05 mill

ion, compared with 1,087 in 2010, the year China began to pilot organ donations, according to the Chin

a Organ Donation Administrative Center. More than 64,000 organs have been donated since then, the center added.

The turning point came in 2015, when China banned the use of organs harvested from executed prisoners, which

made voluntary donations the only legitimate source of organs. Since then, the number of organ donations and the num

ber of organ donors have continued to increase rapidly, according to data from health authorities.

In the Government Work Report, Li said that the govern

ment’s moves to cut taxes on this occasion aim at an accommo

dative effect to strengthen the basis for sustained growth while also considering the need to ens

ure fiscal sustainability. It is also a major measure to lighten the burden on businesses and boost market dynamism.

Participants at Wednesday’s meeting also decided on adjustments to the export tax rebate rates of certain goods and services and

to the tax deduction rate of purchases of farm produce. They decided to increase transfer payments to local gov

ernments, focusing on supporting the central and western regions and counties and prefectures experiencing difficulties.

“The share that goes to enterprises in the national income distribution ne

eds to be increased to boost market vitality. This will

help keep employment stable, expand tax sources and make public finance sustainable.” Li said.

The revelation that an extra pilot saved the plane the day

before the crash has never been reported before, according to Bloomberg.

Aviation analyst and editor in chief of Airlineratings.com, Geoffrey Thomas, said it was not unusual for off-duty pilots, known as dead heads, to fly in the cockpit of planes.

“It could well be that the flight is full and he needs to get back t

o Jakarta — so as long as he is authorized to do so — then it’s absolutely fine,” he said.

However, the presence of the third pilot in the cockpit did not appear in the National Tra

nsportation Safety Committee’s (KNKT) November preliminary report into the crash.

Thomas said this fact should have been reported “as you could argue that the pilot was a distraction or an assistance,” he said.

Wall Street Journal: Transportation Department inspector general investigating FAA’s approval of Boeing 737 Max

CNN contacted Lion Air Group Captain Daniel Putut for comment and he directed questions to the KNKT.

About 100 million units of handsets are sold in Europe ever

year. We must build a presence there.”In the fourth quarter of 2018, Oppo outcompeted Samsung to

become the largest smartphone vendor in Thailand with a market share of 22.2 percent, gro

wing about 70 percent year-on-year, according to the market research company Canalys.

Its products and services are also well received in other South Asian and Sout

heast Asian countries, including India, and African countries such as Kenya.

In 2018, Oppo shipped 113 million units of smartphones wor

ldwide, garnering a global market share of more than 8 percent, according to IDC data.

Other Chinese smartphone makers, including Huawei, Xiaomi and Vivo, are also looking beyon

d their home turf for growth. In this context, Oppo believes it has an edge over others as it first started its i

nternational journey as early as in 2009 in Thailand, much before others jumped on the going-global bandwagon.

Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwillin

  g to “negotiate with the Obama administration” about trade. In fact, the prev

ious administration sought to conclude a Transatlantic Trade and Investm

ent Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the line. Trump’s own talks on t

rade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump vs. his global counterparts

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a Pre

sident who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Trump, who was forced into

a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.

The Chagos Islands never got its independence day. Instea

  Britain has now been instructed to properly finish the process of decolonizati

on, and return the Chagos Islands, located half way between Africa and Indonesia, to Mauritius.

  The ruling, though non-binding, potentially creates a huge problem for the Unite

d States. Today, Diego Garcia is one of America’s most important — and secretive — overseas assets.

  Home to over 1,000 US troops and staff, it has been used by the US Navy, the US Air Force and ev

en NASA — the island’s enormous runway was a designated emergency landing site for the spac

e shuttle. Diego Garcia has helped to launch two invasions of Iraq, served as a vital landing spot for bombers that fly mis

sions across Asia, including over the South China Sea, and has been linked to US rendition efforts.

  Many in Britain, including Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the country’s opposition Labour Party, are now calling for the

UK to return the islands to Mauritius. Should that happen experts believe the ownership of Diego Garcia co

uld be up for negotiation — a move that would make Mauritius a much more important country geopolitically.

The Government Work Report presented by Premier Li Keq

iang contains a comprehensive review of the progress made in 2018 and the targets achieved. It al

so mentions the challenges and impediments faced in the process. It is significant that despite h

eadwinds in global economy, Chinese economy registered a growth rate of 6.6 percent. More than 13.6 million new urba

n jobs were generated. Unemployment was around 5%. China contin

ued to make strides in the fields of innovation and high-tech. Concerted eff

orts were also made to deal with the problem of environment pollution while infrastructure development was also on course.

For me the most impressive part is the government’s resolve to tac

kle the issue of poverty and create a knowledge-based economy. Projections for 2019 of 6-6.5% GDP g

rowth, creation of 11 million new jobs, an employment-first policy, supply-side structural reform and three critical batt

les against potential risks, poverty and pollution are reflective of key priority areas. Budgetary spending on educ

ation above 4% of GDP and over 2% on R&D shows that China is moving forward to establish a society which me

ets the needs of the people through scientific applications and modern technologies.

Video footage of the ceremony shows spectators arranged

  on stadium-style bleachers along the road, who shout and clap, egged on by animated cheerleaders, to a soundtrack of patriotic music.

  Military personnel in full regalia perform elaborate fast-paced marches and high kicks in a show of one-upmanship.

  Then the soldiers lower and fold the flags of their respective countries and shake hands, before flinging the border gates shut with a final flourish.

  It’s a powerful show of pride, which draws attendees from both sides of the border, as well as international tourists.

  But anyone hoping to watch the ceremony on Friday will have been left disappoint

ed. Beating Retreat was canceled on the Indian side as officials awaited the return of their pilot.

  Shashank Joshi, defense editor at The Economist and former sen

ior research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), a defense and sec

urity think tank, said Wagah was probably chosen as the site of the handover for logistical reasons.

  ”It’s a high-security location,” Joshi told CNN via telephone. It did, however, suffer

a deadly suicide attack on the Pakistani side in 2014 following the Beating Retreat ceremony.
