Zhang Xiaohui, a senior researcher for the CF40 and a former assistant governor of the Chinese central bank, said, “The IMF concl上海龙凤1314
usion is objective and reflects that the yuan was assessed to be broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals.”
上海龙凤1314品茶微信Besides refraining from competitively depreciating its own currency, China has also b
een committed to promoting international currency policy coordination, said Zhu, the bank official.
President Xi Jinping announced at the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing in April tha上海龙凤1314
t China will more effectively engage in international macro-economic policy coordination, including more improve
ments to the exchange rate regime, to ensure that the market plays a decisive role in resource allocation.
According to the IMF news release on Friday, its executive directors agreed that grea

markets would help China’s financial system be more capable of dealing with capital flow volatility.
Chen Yuan, chairman of the CF40 Executive Council and former上海龙凤1314
vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, ca
utioned that China needs to prepare for long-term disputes, including in the field of finance.
Chen suggested increasing yuan-denominated settlements in global comm上海龙凤1314品茶微信

Zhou Xiaochuan, chairman of the China Institute of Finance and a former c

For Ma and Tsang, it was their second ascent to the summit of Mount Qomolangma, as Ma had reached th
e top of the mountain in 2016, and Tsang conquered it in 2017. But for Sun, this was her first such experience.
“What surprised me when I reached the top was the shadow of Mount Qom
olangma on other mountains. It was simply magnificent and stunning and it was a heavenly experience,” she shared.
Growing up, Sun didn’t have any aspirati
ons to climb Mount Qomolangma, but she loved drawing, especially nature and mountain scenes.
Having worked as a designer, she had some mountaineering exp

Huang Runqiu, vice-minister of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said dis
aster risk reduction of natural hazards along the initiative is crucial for its success and sustainability.
Regions at the heart of the initiative, such as the Tianshan-Pamir Platea

us disaster threats due to tectonic movements, fragile ecosystems and extreme weather, he said.
Henrik Slotte, a senior disaster management expert from the UN Environm
ent Program, said poorly managed infrastructure projects can damage the ecosystem.
