The vision to transform Shenzhen to become the country’s pilot zo
ne for socialism has been applauded by various business sectors in Hong Kong, as the cit 上海千花坊女神会所
y is poised to reap the benefits by enriching the practice of “one country, two systems.”
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council, China’s Ca
binet, issued the guideline on Sunday to support Shenzhen, adjacent to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Re
gion, in building a demonstration pilot zone for socialism with Chinese characteristics.
Under the guideline, Shenzhen is vying to become a modern, inter
national and innovative city by 2035 through boosting efficient flow
s of personnel, capital, technology and information between Shenzhen, Hong Kong and
Macao, thus helping to better develop the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area blueprint.

In order to develop into a demonstration pilot zone for socialism with Chinese characte
上海乌托邦品茶微信ristics that would strengthen democracy and rule of law, facilitate the flow of foreign talents and nurture an intern

The Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council, China’s Cabinet, recently issued a guidance on sup上海乌托邦
porting Shenzhen in building the demonstration pilot zone for socialism with Chinese characteristics.
上海乌托邦Shenzhen’s expanded cooperation with Hong Kong will also lay a solid fo
undation for the overall development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Grea

Just more than 30 years ago, Hong Kong residents used to be reluctant to visit neighboring Shenzhen. It was not only the complica
ted clearance procedure at the border, which took at least two to three hours, but also the backwardness of the上海乌托邦

Today, Hong Kong residents marvel at the pace and ease with which Shenzhen has transformed into上海乌托邦品茶微信
a global innovation center, offering more opportunities and oozing more vitality than Hong Kong.

“Attempts to suppress Huawei’s business won’t help the US achieve technological leadership. We call on the US gover上海后花园女神会所

Washington at first put Huawei on the Entity List in May, banning it from buyin

But this is also an exact description of the rising violence between two bitterly distrustful religious communities that I witn
essed on the streets of my native Belfast in British-ruled Northern Ireland exactly－uncannily－half a century ago as a te上海会所
enager in that unforgettable, agonizing August of 1969. The lessons I learned then would serve the people of the H
上海会所品茶微信ong Kong Special Administrative Region well today before they bring an unimaginable disaster upon themselves.
Violent protests against authorities never bring peace. They only bring war, destruction
and suffering－almost always on a scale that none of the demonstrators could have imagined when they took to the上海会所
streets. Prosperity never follows violent protests. At best, there is mass unemployment and despair as local bu
sinesses and national investment flee the territory－a process which could continue for decades. You do not build fac上海会所品茶微信
tories and hire workers when those factories could be razed in one of the endless clashes.
The “freedom” the demonstrators in Hong Kong have been demanding is illusory. It is fool’s gold. It is the mythical pot o
上海会所f gold at the end of the rainbow. This kind of “freedom” will never benefit the people of Hong Kong. At best it could be gra
nted, but at the cost of a serious decline in investment from both the Chinese mainland and other regions of Asia.
Hong Kong’s enormous advantage for decades, including the past two decades under Chinese a上海会所品茶微信
utonomous rule, has been that it is considered a secure, predictable and safe place to do business wit
h the mainland and with the wider region. But that no longer seems true. The longer the protests rage and the wi上海会所
der and more serious they become, the more that incalculable advantage will be eroded.
When I was a young boy, Belfast was still the largest ship building center on earth. In the late上海会所品茶微信
1960s, the British government invested in two gigantic gantry cranes called Goliath and Samson－at the time the
largest such pieces of machinery in the world－to build super oil tankers. They still stand today as tourist attr

Earlier last month, another incident involving foreign teachers caused outrage, when 16 foreign nationals－se

dents from nearby schools－were among 19 people detained in Xuzhou, Jiangsu pro
vince, during an anti-narcotics crackdown, according to the local public security bureau.上海楼凤
EF Education First, an international company that specializes in language train
上海楼凤ing, issued a statement saying that it forbids employees to possess or use narcotics or controlled substances, and th
e contracts of the teachers would be terminated if they were found to have been involved in illegal drug use.
The incidents triggered a flood of posts on social media platforms, with some dema上海楼凤女神会所
nding that the establishments be closed, while others called for the teachers to be deported.
But even if that happens, more foreign teachers will follow in their wake because the soaring de上海楼凤
mand for English-language teachers means that finding a job is little more than a formality for many foreigners.
Last year, 300 million people in China were learning English, according to the Chinese Acad
上海楼凤女神会所emy of Social Sciences, which noted that there were 50,000 English-language teaching estab

However, according to the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, of the 400,000 foreign nationals wo上海楼凤

According to a regulation issued by SAFEA, all foreign teachers mu上海楼凤女神会所

“I was shocked to see so many children waiting in line with their parents and relatives outside the clinics to see the doctors,” she said.
Although congenital heart diseases are usually identified and treated very e
arly in China, some of the patients waiting for screening are more than 10 years old and上海千花坊
had not been diagnosed previously due to a lack of access to health care services, Gu said.
“Though the diagnosis was free, many of the children recommended by local Red Crescent bran上海千花坊女神会所

By November last year, 100 Afghan children with congenital heart disease had re

Port calls often serve as a barometer of China-US ties. Last year, China canceled the vi

上海会所品茶微信In 2016, aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis and four ships in its strike group were denied port visits to Hong Kong after t
he US criticized China’s activities in the South China Sea. China also denied similar visits by US warships in 2014 and 2007.

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs University, said the US Navy has a long track record of port visits上海会所

“Hong Kong has been in turmoil for months now. Coincidence or n
