Li called for more measures in line with market principles to上海夜网女神会所

adjust prices so the general public can be assured drug prices are stabilizing.

上海夜网Some experts attributed the shortages to price hikes for active pharmace

ut i cal ingredients, saying that more must be done to boost their production.

Shi Lichen, founder of Beijing Dingchen Consultancy, which specializes in research on the pharmaceutical sector, sai上海夜网女神会所

d many active ingredient producers had been closed for various reasons in the last

few years, and many remaining players in the sector had raised prices due to their market dominance.

上海夜网”There must be more punitive measures from the authorities on price manipulation,” he said.

“Meanwhile, it is important for the authorities to encourage pha

rmaceutical businesses to establish their own production lines for active pharmac上海夜网女神会所

eutical ingredients, so that they can better withstand market risks from the supply end.”

The State Council meeting also emphasized the nee

Medical institutions will face tighter drug use supervision so that basic medicines ha

上海夜网女神会所The Cabinet urged efforts to improve early warning systems for medicine shortages, implement a productio

The current joint operat上海夜网t the first of its kind

 for Herbert Smith Freehills. The London-headquartered law firm has also been work

ing with Hiswara Bunjamin and Tandjung in Indonesia in a similar fashion for the last 15 years.上海夜网女神会所

Gavin Guo, international partner of Kewei, said that they had submitted an application for the joint operation to the Shang

上海夜网hai Municipal Bureau of Justice earlier this year and it took them three months to get the green light.

According to Guo, the joint operation of law firms is different from a joint ven

ture and does not include equity options. The two law firms are still independent e上海夜网女神会所

ntities but share administrative resources and provide one-stop legal services to clients.

Such joint operation models are attractive for multinational companies with operat上海夜网

ions in China and outbound Chinese companies, said Guo. Before this, companies need to go to a foreign la

上海夜网女神会所w firm and a Chinese law firm separately for legal services. This can be avoided as communication with both the l

aw firms can be completed in the same office and will incur only a single charge, he said.上海夜网

“Given the current global economic and political uncertainties and trade friction, governments are tightening their scru

上海夜网tiny and regulation in areas like foreign direct investment. The joint operation model will play a big role in te

rms of transaction habits, disputes resolution and even company strategies,” he said.

The first joint operation was set up by the Chicago-headquartered Baker McKenzie and Beijing Fenxun Partners in April 201上海夜网女神会所

5. In an action plan rolled out in April 2018, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Justice said it will study the possibility of pro

moting the joint operation model to the rest of the city to further improve the business environment.上海夜网

Although government s上海夜网 an important role in

uraging farmers to grow soybeans, as seen in China and many other countries such as the US, other ways should be expl

ored to increase domestic soybean production, such as developing new species, she said.上海夜网

According to the ministry, while continuing to encourage international trade in s

上海夜网oybeans, China is also making efforts to diversify its imports of the crop. It has increased imports from co

untries such as Argentina to minimize risks from turmoil in international relations.上海夜网品茶微信

Zhou Tianyong, an economics professor at the University of Science

上海夜网and Technology Beijing, said it is not practical to rejuvenate domestic soybean product

ion solely through the provision of subsidies, which require heavy government investment.

He said more efforts should be made to improve productivity – so that fewer farme上海夜网

rs can produce more soybeans – to reduce costs and increase domestic competitiveness.

Meanwhile, he suggested that authorities could consider using more uncultivated land, in

上海夜网品茶微信cluding desert and grassland, to enable it to be used for soybean production.

Ji, from the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Bureau in Wudalianchi city, said domes

tic development of soybeans still faces many challenges, including higher production costs than for imported

products, and a lack of processing services for the domestic crop. Higher subsi上海夜网品茶微信

dies for soybean exports from some countries mean the produce can be sold in China at e

ven lower prices, worsening the situation for the domestically produced crop, he said.上海夜网

“Authorities should formulate more policies to sup

port development of the soybean industry, and provide more support f

上海夜网品茶微信or the production of non-GM soybeans through financial subsidies and insurance coverage.

“Subsidies should not only cover farmers who plant soybeans, but also other factors suc

h as the research and development of soybeans, logistics, processing and consumption.”上海夜网

Ji said the authorities could provide more support for soybean insurance cove

rage, to enable farmers to be better prepared for losses stemming from natural disa

上海夜网品茶微信sters. More efforts should also be made to promote domestically produced soybeans to increase exports.

In addition, more should be done to protect the environment in m

ajor soybean production areas to improve the production and quality of the crop, he said.上海夜网品茶微信

The third will make applying for driving permits easier by setting up service centers at po

As part of its efforts to comprehensively deepen reform and opening-up, China rolled out a pla上海夜网女神会所

Meanwhile, foreign investors with stable investments in innovative enterprises in Haina上海夜网女神会所

Nevertheless, it is difficult to separate cyclical elements

and external shocks from the long-term trend and to conclude that China’s potential growth rate really is 6-6.5 percent.

Many Chinese economists cite long-term supply-side structural factors-such as demographic agi

ng, environmental degradation, and a lack of progress on reform-to argue that China has simply en

tered a new stage of development, characterized by significantly lower potential growth rates.

Structural factors don’t explain falling growth rate

While this may be true-everyone in China agrees that 9-10 perce

nt annual growth rates are a thing of the past-there is no clear indication of how much Chin

a’s growth potential has actually declined. Long-term supply-side structural factors do not explain, for exam

ple, why the growth rate fell from 12.1 percent in the first quarter of 2010 to 7.4 percent in the third quarter of 2013.
