Cabinet unveils measures to stabilize job market in face of downward pressure on economy

China has unveiled measures to stabilize the job market, with上海夜生活

steps to establish an early warning mechanism for large-scale la

上海夜生活yoffs and unemployment risks amid mounting downward pressure on the economy.

In a statement released after an executive meeting on July 31, the State Council said the country is facing pressure to create mor

e jobs, and stronger measures must be adopted to stabilize growth and promote entrepreneurship.上海夜生活女神会所

It also called for stronger efforts to break barriers hindering the development of market enti

上海夜生活ties and to create more jobs. Employment in labor-intensive sectors must be closely monitored, and an early war

ning mechanism for large-scale layoffs and unemployment risks will be established.

More than 7.37 million urban jobs were created in the first half of the year-two-thirds上海夜生活女神会所

of the annual target-according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.

In the first half, the surveyed unemployment rate remained stable at 5.1 per

上海夜生活cent, while the registered urban unemployment rate was kept at 3.61 percent, according to the ministry.

China’s economic growth slowed to 6.2 percent in the second quarter, its weakest pace in a

t least 27 years, with demand faltering at home and abroad amid ongoing trade frictions with the United States.上海夜生活女神会所

Delivering a government work report in March, Premier Li Keqiang pledged to pursue an employment-first policy with

full force. The country would implement a vocational skills training initiative, and allocat

 well, and most of those I harvest go to big food processing factories nearby,” he sa

上海夜生活id. “I can sell the soybeans for about 4 yuan a kilogram, compared with 3.6 yuan last year.”

Although Sun wanted to rent more land from farmers in nearby villages to expand his soybean上海夜生活

harvest this year, many of them were unwilling to do so, or had increased their rents, so Sun said he gave up.

上海夜生活品茶微信In Hailun, a national pilot area for high-efficiency production of green and high-quality soybeans, m

ore than 133,000 hectares of farmland have been planted with the crop since 2000, according to Yang

Dayong, director of the Green Food Development Office, which is responsible to the city’s agricultural and rural affairs bureau.

With higher profits from soybean farming and policies to encourage the growth of such crops adopted by the local govern上海夜生活

ment, the amount of land used for soybean planting in the city is expected to rise to 193,000 hectares this year, a year-on-ye

上海夜生活品茶微信ar expansion of 45 percent, accounting for more than half the farmland in Hailun.

The city will also try to take more measures to help farmers to improve soybean

productivity and quality, including introducing superior species and promoting new fertilizing techn上海夜生活

ologies to enable the crop to play a more important role in the local economy, Yang said.

上海夜生活品茶微信Soybean planting has increased nationwide this year, following a na

tional plan proposed by the central government to rejuvenate production of the crop.上海夜生活

The total area of farmland planted with soybeans this year may exceed 8.6 millio

n hectares, a year-on-year rise of more than 667,000 hectares, which would be the fourth consecutive year of gro

上海夜生活wth, according to Pan Wenbo, planting administration head at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

This year, the central government has provided more support to enco

urage soybean planting, including continuing to provide subsidies to farmers in the north上海夜生活品茶微信

east, a major production area for the crop, promoting rotation farming of corn and

上海夜生活soybeans, and increasing financial support for major soybean production counties, Pan said.

According to a plan released by the ministry earlier

this year to increase domestic soybean production, authorities will introduce more policies to e上海夜生活

ncourage planting of the crop. The policies will include increasing subsidies to farm

ers and developing new soybean species over the next few years to raise domestic production.

上海夜生活品茶微信According to the plan, the amount of land used for growing soybeans is expected to rise to 9.3 million hectares by the end of next y

ear and to 10 million hectares by 2022, with per-hectare production and quality also being boosted.

With consumption of soybeans in recent years increasing for their protein and ed

ible oil, the gap between supply and demand has been widening, resulting in China re上海夜生活品茶微信

lying on imports, with more than 80 percent of such produce coming from countries such as Brazil and the United States.

In comparison, China is almost self-sufficient in rice, wheat and corn – the nation’s

three major crops – with domestic production meeting more than 98 percent of total demand.

Last year, China’s soybean imports reached 88 million metric ton

s, more than twice the level in 2009, but a decline of about 8 percent compared with the previo

us year – the first fall since 2011 – due to outbreaks of African swine fever. This led to declining demand for soybean me

al, a major byproduct used for pig feed, along with a slump in imports from the US due to increased tariffs on soybe

ans imposed by Beijing, according to the General Administration of Customs.

Imports from Brazil exceeded 66 million tons last year, accounting for 75 percent of the total, fo

llowed by those from the US, which fell by more than 16 million tons, a drop of about 50 percent year-on-year.

Amid rising domestic production, soybean imports have continued to fall this year. A total of 31.7 million tons were impo

rted in the first five months, a year-on-year fall of 12.2 percent, according to the ministry. Imports from the US fell ye

ar-on-year by 70.6 percent in the first four months to 4.3 million tons, the ministry said.

ritain’s Conservative Party leadership contest frontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his prev

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no-

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.上海夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp

end – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.

in Malaga, where the artist was born, will move to Shanghai after running in Beijing.

A week after Trump threatened to impose tariffs on the remaining $300 billion of goods imported from Chi

“Your proposal to add tariffs on all imports from China is ask

the companies. It was posted on the website of the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA).
