Since women have “internalized the thin ideal” from soci

ial media, they develop a negative relationship with their bodies. This often leads th

em to engage in “fat talk”-resulting in much lower self-esteem, Shen added.

Ye, from Hangzhou, who works as an accountant for Silergy Corp, said more than 90 percent of her colleagues in the finance

department are women, ranging in age from the early 20s to late 40s. Some have families, while others are singl

e or just “jump into” romantic relations. But all of them have varying degrees of dissatisfaction with their body shape.

“Every woman in our office is unhappy with at least one part of her b

ody. One of them might say her face is too round, while others are unhappy with their arms when

we sit together and gossip,” said Ye, who weighs 48 kg but frowns as she looks at the shape of her thighs.

“I have often thought I would be more attractive if my thighs were thinner,” she said, a

dding that one of her colleagues had not eaten dinner for at least two years in order to stay slim.

He underlined the importance of properly mitigating

various social conflicts, and said efforts must be made to address legitimate and lawful concerns to safeguard public int

erests, and also guide the public in voicing their concerns in a law-based manner to maintain social order.

Strong pressure must be maintained to crack down on crimes such as organized gang activity, violent and terroristic cri

mes, as well as those related to fraud, robbery, food and drug safety, and environmental protection, Xi said.

Calling social fairness and justice a lifeline for judicial and law enforcement work, Xi called for improving the mec

hanism of the use of power in law enforcement as well as the supervision over such powers.

Efforts should be made to help the public feel fairness and justice in every case, Xi said.

He also urged public security staff to improve their work so that human rights can be guarant

eed while crime is fought, and fairness can be ensured while efficiency of law enforcement is pursued.

The 20-year-old said she first learned about the history

The volunteer team-led by Wu Liangliang, a security guard who has gained online fame for his fluent self-taught En

glish-has also been part of the site’s efforts to provide a more personal management style, in addition to the city go

vernment’s introduction of various measures, including a mobile app, to help tourists.

Larry Goodrich, from Seattle, who has been traveling with his wife

in the Yangtze River Delta for three weeks, lauded the volunteers’ contributions.

Having worked in the computer industry since “the era of brick-si

zed cellphones”, the 65-year-old said that while technology has provided unimaginable con

venience, traveling is about being a part of the destination and interacting with local residents.

“The human connection is always better,” said Goodrich.

Other commonly used disaggregated growth meas

ures are consistent with the top-line measured GDP growth number. For example, production and

supply of electricity, thermal power, gas and water increased by 7.1 percent in the quarter. Pl

us, value-added index of transport, storage and post increased by 7.3 percent.

A closer look at the highest growth sectors shows that the economy is moving toward the long-term goal of shif

ting away from a development strategy based on heavy investment in industry and

infrastructure to one based on services and domestic consumption. Also, more productive industries that tur

n out higher-value added goods are growing at a much faster rate than traditional heavy industry.

Among large companies, State-owned enterprises grew 4.5 percent yea

r-on-year while shareholding enterprises grew almost twice as fast, at 7.8 percent. So, stro

ng progress is being made toward the goal of promoting private enterprise, which was re

inforced by many policies announced at last month’s meeting of the National People’s Congress.

In August 2018, the Australian government banned

Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturers such as Huawei and ZTE from providin

g 5G technology and products, as well as the use of Chinese telecommunications equipment in dom

estic broadband networks. Behind this decision is vague “national security”. For example, the West has repeat

edly accused China of its “Intelligence Law”, especially the particular Article 7 of the law, under whic

h Chinese enterprises will cooperate with the Chinese government in carrying out acts of theft.

However, the Intelligence Law does not require organizations and citizens to uncondition

ally “support, assist and cooperate” with “national intelligence”. On the contrary, the so-called “support, ass

istance and cooperation” must be carried out “in accordance with the provisions of other laws”.

Shanghai, China’s financial hub, prevailed as expats’ fa

favorite city to work and live in for the sixth year in a row, followed by Beijing, Hefei, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, S

uzhou, Qingdao, Tianjin, Xi’an and Wuhan.

The campaign also looked at cities with the most potential to attract expats, naming X

iamen, Nanjing, Urumqi, Guangzhou, Xuzhou, Haikou, Kunming, Jinan, Dalian and Chengdu.

In recent years, China has implemented a work permit system for foreigners to come to Chi

na and a visa system for expats. This has promoted the government affairs, policies, work and living

environment of Chinese cities, allowing more expats to live and work better in China.

The survey has been conducted for nine years, starting in 2010. The A

mazing China 2018 poll took place from November to December. Results were anal

yzed from 239 signed votes from top expert panels, 2,815 votes from foreign experts, and 94,849 votes from internet users.
