One standard goal is to create a “level playing field” so

 that foreign companies can compete against domestic companies in each country.

In the past several months, China has announced and started to implement a “negative list” program

that allows foreign companies to have 100 percent ownership in investments in all areas of the ec

onomy, except for a small number of areas, such as telecoms and defense, that are explicitly prohibited.

Also, foreign investment has been simplified by creating a

one-stop regulatory shop and a single application process.

These new policies will lead to greater competition within China, forcing Chi

na’s companies to become more efficient and to produce higher quality products.

The Chinese government has also recently announced tax cuts and financial regulation

s designed to help private companies. This will hasten the ongoing transition to a market-driven economy.

 which means the project will provide a large number of jobs to lo

cal communities,” he said. “It is expected that up to 100,000 to 200,000 locals will be d

rawn to the new economic zone after its completion. They will rise out of poverty by working in this zone.”

The project will be beneficial to both China and Cambodia, Qian said.

“Many Chinese companies go overseas to expand their businesses. However, because of a la

ck of experience and related knowledge, most of them face huge obstacles abroad,” he said. “Our company has done overseas business for mo

Ma described the early radiation as carpet bombing, sayin

g it causes collateral damage in the area around the tumor. A “satellite map” is needed for a precision strike, he said.

Ma and his team put forward an individualized irradiation range and dose standard for radi

otherapy. The result is a clear picture showing high – and low-risk areas, which then allows dose stratification.

In 2014, an atlas of organs at risk in nasopharyngeal cancer patients was published in

Radiotherapy and Oncology. It suggested tailoring both radiation doses and targets, and setting a reco

mmended safety dose for protecting 33 normal organs around the nasopharynx.

Today, the five-year overall survival rate for patients exceeds 80 percent at Sun Yat-sen Uni

versity Cancer Center, while the rate of severe side effects from radiotherapy has dropped by 24 percent.

Ma, who has won China’s National Science and Technology Award twice with his team, is grateful to more than 10,000

patients who have participated in his research, saying their courage is behind the progress in the treatment.

Before the start of the China Cup, Cannavaro said that fans

and media need to focus on long term development of Chinese soccer instead of what happens at the tournament.

Cannavaro said he sought out the opinion of Lippi, who now serves as an adviser, including player selection.

“The China Cup players are all those who had good performances in the previous rounds of the CSL, along with young players,” said Cannavaro.

“What we need is a sustainable system that will allow the best

coaches all around the world to work here in the future. It’s not a short-term play. It will take time.”

“It’s like building a house-the first job is to build a solid foundation,” he said

“Based on that, we can have success. Compared to Japan and South Korea, their plans started decades ago.

“They are 20 to 25 years ahead of China in terms of their soccer development.”

Another factor was that Cannavaro did not recall China’s best striker, Wu Lei, who is now playing for Espanyol in La Liga.

Other experienced veterans, such as captain Zheng Zhi, were passed over in order to make way for younger players.

His arrest may have an impact on upcoming Indian election

due to take place in May.

The discovery of the alleged fraud and Modi’s refusal to return to India to face criminal charges has in

creased pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — no relation to Nirav Modi — who promised to fight corruption in India.

Tuesday’s arrest and the possibility of extradition could help to improve the Prime Minister’s tarnished image.

Rahul Gandhi, leader of the principle opposition party Congress, has repeatedly attacked PM Modi on his failure to bring fugitives back to India.

In 2016, liquor baron Vijay Mallya left the country owning an estimated $1.6 billion to 17 Indian banks.

The process for Mallya’s extradition to India is ongoing. He has denied fleeing the country ov

er his debts and described charges of fraud and money laundering as “false, fabricated and baseless.”

Trump issues first veto of his presidency, says resolution ‘pu

  Deeming congressional rejection of his border national emerg

ency “reckless” and “dangerous”, President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presi

dency Friday, insisting the situation on the southern frontier amounted to a threat to Americans’ safety.

  ”Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution and I have the duty to veto it,” Trump said fr

om the Oval Office before officially sending the measure back to Congress without his approval.

  It is the first time in his two years in office that Trump has used his presidential v

eto power to block legislation and comes after a dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats to rebu

ke Trump’s use of his national emergency power to bypass Congress and fund construction of a border wall.

  Trump said the resolution, which would have reversed the national emergency, “put countless Americans in danger.”
