t Institute at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said China
‘s agricultural sector was plagued by inefficient production practices for亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所品茶微信
many years, while annual output was highly susceptible to changes in climate.
For example, from 1959 to 1961 large parts of the country experienced a severe drought.亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所
In 1961, the arid conditions reduced the total crop yield by 61 million metric tons, a 30 percent fall from 1958.
Since the early 1980s, the central leadership has attached great significan
亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所ce to agricultural innovation. In 2015, investment in scientific and technological research reached 55 billion yu
an ($7.8 billion at today’s rates), compared with 720 million yuan in 1978, Du said.
According to the ministry, more than 96 percent of fields dedicated to the cultivation亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所品茶微信
of major crops, including rice, corn and wheat, are sown with high-yield, resilient species.
亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所A number of crop-breeding platforms that employ scientifically proven approaches-such as the use of “dwarf-st
erile” wheat, the “super rice” system and hybrid corn breeding-have been established to fast-t
rack improvements in edible crops and ensure the food supply is reliable and safe in the long term.
The wide application of modern farming techniques ha亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所品茶微信
s also helped farmers to raise yields and reduce damage to the environment.
At present, environmentally friendly methods are used to prevent and control pests on 56.7 mill
ion hectares under cultivation, accounting for 15 percent of the total area affected by such pests.
亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所Meanwhile, smarter use of pesticides in demonstra
tion areas has reduced the use of chemicals by 20 to 30 percent, the ministry said.
The use of fertilizers has been further contained as a result of a nationwide campaign l亚博体育官网贵宾登录会所品茶微信
aunched in 2005. It aims to tailor the use of synthesized fertilizers to suit local soil conditions
and improve awareness of the scientific management of fertilizers among farmers.

Local governments told to provide accurate information to authorities
Authorities have found a series of problems亚博体育官网贵宾登录419论坛女神会所
while carrying out the third national land survey, warning local gover
nments and natural resource departments to fulfill their responsibilities.
亚博体育官网贵宾登录419论坛The problems were outlined on Friday by the Ministry of Natural Resources and the central
government supervision team, and involved 20 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions.
In Qinghai province, for example, local natural resources department and sup亚博体育官网贵宾登录419论坛
ervisory teams were blamed for not taking the field surveys seriously, nor did they urg
e that uncovered problems be corrected in accordance with rules and regulations.
In Yulin, Shaanxi province, entities did not fully carr亚博体育官网贵宾登录419论坛女神会所
y out the investigation responsibly, resulting in imprecise
outcomes, and county-level authorities deliberately changed and forged mapping data.
“Those cases reflected problems, such as poor quality surveys a亚博体育官网贵宾登录419论坛nd data accuracy. I hope that will be a w
arning for future work,” said Wang Guanghua, vice-minister of natural resources.
He said the ministry will not tolerate the forging of data.亚博体育官网贵宾登录419论坛女神会所

Party motto inspired by young soldier keeps educating members in new era
XI’AN-Serving the people wholeheartedly-this is
the motto of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the world’s largest ruling party.?亚博体育官网贵宾登录夜网
In an education campaign themed “stay true to our founding mission”, which has been carried out nationwide since May, all CPC
members and officials are required to bear in mind the phrase and act accordingly.?亚博体育官网贵宾登录夜网女神会所
The expression “serving the people” originated from a speech by late Chinese leader Ma
o Zedong in September 1944 in memory of a soldier, Zhang Side, renowned for
his lofty morality for serving the people wholeheartedly and sacrificing for the benefit of the people.?亚博体育官网贵宾登录夜网
The speech has had a profound impact on the history of the CPC, and “serv
?亚博体育官网贵宾登录夜网女神会所ing the people wholeheartedly” became the fundamental purpose of the Party.
Seventy-five years on, Zhang’s stories have been eulogized by generations of Chinese, and his spirit has been passed on.

亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园女神会所The IMF has long been committed to promoting international financial stability
and currency cooperation, redressing the imbalances of international payments, Zhu said.
Citing previous market performance, Zhu said the yuan has depreciated against the dollar fo亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园
llowing Washington’s renewed threat of tariff hikes on Chinese goods. Similarly, the yuan fluctuations earlier this m
onth were a natural market reaction, resulting from trade tensions that have been escalated by the US, she said.
亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园The yuan weakened to above 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade last week,
after Washington’s threat to slap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods starting Sept 1.亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园女神会所
Shortly after the yuan fell beyond the psychological threshold, the US Treasury Departme
nt declared that China was manipulating its currency to achieve unfair trade advantage.亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园
Zhu said that despite the trade tensions over the past year and a hal
f, China has never used exchange rates to respond to external disruptions.
The IMF report, referring to last year’s performance of the yuan, also said that even亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园女神会所
though the Chinese currency depreciated against the dollar fairly rapidly
from mid-June to early August, it was “broadly stable” against a basket of benchmark currencies.亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园
Moreover, the Chinese monetary authorities took measures, including reintroducing a countercyclical adjus
tment factor, to resist depreciation pressure during that period, according to the report, which is based on the IMF’s latest
亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园女神会所Article IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.
The IMF report released last week suggests that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, said Yu Yongding, a se
nior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant for the CF40 forum.亚博体育官网贵宾登录后花园女神会所
The IMF report provides evidence that, rather than artificially depreci
ating the yuan for trade advantage, as the US administration alleged, China has shown a
pattern of commitment to keeping the yuan generally in equilibrium at an adaptive
level, said Liu Chunsheng, an associate professor at Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.
