British switched tacti上海会所ng for the carrot more

 frequently than the stick. Though it used a lighter touch in administ

ration after World War II — and this approach had limits; see above — Britain never went so fa上海会所品茶微信

r as to risk its own position. Indeed, when push came to shove the cudgel was still happily relied upon; discontent in t

上海会所he 1950s and ’60s was smothered with a force today’s protesters couldn’t begin to imagine.

Police, after all, did nothing to stop the Legislative Council from being

ransacked and defaced with the colonial flag early last month — compare that treatment wi

th the hundreds killed in protests under British rule. What’s more, even limited improvements in governance w上海会所品茶微信

ere done cynically, as a means of pacifying a restive population. “Democratic” reforms were never se

riously pursued until negotiations began between Britain and China for the restoration of Chinese sovereignty. Su

rely we can put two and two together and see this as more than mere coincidence.上海会所

But for some, this strategy worked. With a few token concessions — none of which compare to the rights the po

pulation now enjoys — certain segments were won over to the idea of living as colonial subjects. Thi

s led to a sort of Stockholm Syndrome, where despite being occupiers the British were looked upon more fav上海会所品茶微信

orably as time passed. Sovereignty and self-determination were sacrificed at the altar of getti

ng ahead in a notoriously unequal system, where class divisions only grew more and more pronounced.上海会所

Long-standing inequalities with deep roots in the colonial period are now blamed by nostalgics on post-handover adm

inistration, and this misplaced blame is amplified by bad actors with an axe to grind. Thes上海会所品茶微信

Re-weighting of indexes 上海会所affect capital flows

Major stock and bond index providers have started, or have announced that they inten

上海会所d, to increase the weighting of China’s securities in their respective benchmark indexes over the course of 2019-20.

Global index provider MSCI Inc. announced in February that China’s coverage in the MSCI上海会所品茶微信

Emerging Market Index will increase from its coverage of 235 large-capitalization A-shares to 253 la

上海会所rge-and 168 mid-capitalization stocks. On a pro forma basis, A-shares will constitute 3.3 percent-a significant inc

rease from the current 0.7 percent-of the MSCI-EM Index when the process is completed in November.

The FTSE Russell, the first international index provider of the Chinese mainland’s benchmarks 20 years ago, has elevated Chi上海会所

na’s A-shares to emerging market status and started adding them to the FTSEEM Index from June 24, 2019. Upon f

上海会所品茶微信ull implementation of phase 1 by March 2020, the A-shares will make up 5.7 percent of the index.

And the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond (GAB) Index started the process of including China’s yuan-den上海会所

ominated government and policy bank bonds as a constituent on April 1. Other index providers, such as the FTSE R

ussell and JPMorgan, are reportedly also considering adding China’s debt to their indices.上海会所品茶微信

The MSCI, FTSE Russell and Bloomberg Barclays GAB indexes cover a

sizable share of the investible markets in the world. For example, the MSCI-EM alone is tr

上海会所acked by an estimated $1.9 trillion in assets under management (AUM) from pensions, endowments, passive funds, and

other investors. And the re-weighting of these major global investment indexes is expected to result in a re-allocation of capit

al across emerging markets. As a result, China’s asset market will inevitably become more important for glo上海会所

bal investors, notwithstanding the “noise” created by the ongoing US-China trade tension.

上海会所品茶微信Welcome shift for Chinese firms and global investors

An increased weighting for China’s securities in these indexes in the MSCI would me

an a larger allocation of AUM by foreign fund managers into the Chinese markets. While this shift would b上海会所品茶微信

During the second half of this year, some cities are predicted to loosen their control of the real estate market based on loc

Statistics from Shanghai-based China Real Estate Information Corp showed that during the first six m上海会所

The real estate market tracker also predicted that during the second half these developers w

Liquor firm Kweichow Moutai’s shares break through

Kweichow Moutai Co Ltd, China’s iconic high-end spirit maker, saw its share price exceed 1,000上海会所

上海会所yuan ($145) per share during Thursday trading, making a historical breakthrough and becoming the

most expensive stock in the A-share market, aided by continuously growing demand and its good earnings.上海会所

上海会所Most investors are not surprised by the robust performance of Moutai. Earlier this year, many investment firms, incl

上海会所uding Goldman Sachs and China International Capital Corp Ltd, were bullish on the growth potential of the stock.

They set the target price of Moutai at more than 1,000 yuan per share, attri

buting it to China’s sustained supply-side reforms and consumption upgrade, which have boosted investor sentiment toward such consumer stocks.

上海会所Moutai, a distiller from Maotai town in southwestern China’s Guizhou province, has made substantial gains this year. On Jan 1, it

closed at 598.98 yuan per share. On Thursday, it closed at 996.35 yuan per share, and its share price has surged 66 per上海会所

cent so far this year. Its performance has been better than 90 percent of the A-share listed companies.上海会所品茶微信

Now, its market value stands at 1.24 trillion yuan. Previously, it became the first consumer st

ock with a market value exceeding 1 trillion yuan. Last year, the overall GDP of Guizhou province reached 1.4上海会所

上海会所品茶微信8 trillion yuan, meaning the market value of Moutai accounts for nearly 85 percent of provincial GDP.

Moutai became the first stock that exceeded 1,000 yuan per share after 27 years. More than tw

o decades ago, there was a stock-now named INESA Holding Group-which once exceeded 1,000 yuan pe

r share. The company has experienced multiple structural 上海会所品茶微信changes and now its market value is less than 10 billion yuan.

Other major上海会所 liquor makers are reporting solid sales and also saw outsta

nding performance during Thursday trading. They include Sichuan province-based W

uliangye Yibin Co Ltd and LuzhouLaojiao Group, which led the advance of the spirits and consumer sector.

he May report summarized that China’s growth appear

ears to be stabilizing on the back of recently enhanced supportive measures.

The report expanded the number of countries it scrutinizes for curr

ency manipulation to 21 from 12. Countries with a current account surplus with the US e

quivalent to 2 percent of GDP were put on the watch list, compared with 3 percent of GDP before.

China didn’t meet the “currency manipulator” criteria listed by the US Treasury, but Washi

ngton will continue assessing the RMB’s performance given China’s large trade surplus with the US, the report said.

The US Treasury removed India from the watch list, while it added Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam.

“Chinese authorities have not used the exchange rate in prior easing

cycles to support growth, and they are unlikely to do so now, as this could pose macr

oeconomic stability risk,” said Andrew Fennell, lead sovereign analyst for China at Fitch Ratings.

New vaccines could combat swine fevermay have fou

Chinese scientists have developed two possible vaccines for the African swine fever virus, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences announced on Friday.

The research was led by Harbin Veterinary Research Institute, in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, which is affiliated to the academy.

Researchers have determined the minimum amount required to produce adequate immunization, and hav

e proved they are safe when used in large quantity and repetitively, the academy said, adding more research and tests are nee

ded before the vaccines can be submitted to authorities for inspection and approval.

Currently there is no effective vaccine for African swine fever, although

research and development of potential vaccines is underway in some countries.

hina’s ‘big three’ State-run airlines ask Boeing for compen

Air China, the country’s leading carrier, has formally requested compensation from Boeing Co for th

e grounding of its 15 737 MAX aircraft and delayed deliveries of future planes, the company said Wednesday.

China Southern Airlines, another of China’s “big three” State-run

carriers, has also officially asked the US aircraft-maker for compensation involving its 24 gro

unded MAX aircraft and postponed deliveries of such planes, CCTV reported the same day.

Shanghai-based China Eastern Airlines had already sought compensa

tion from Boeing for incurring considerable losses after the grounding of the 737 MAX aircr

aft following two major crashes, according to a previous China Daily report citing People’s Daily.

The carrier filed a claim against Boeing for the losses caused by 14 suspensions of 737 MAX ai

rcraft since March 11 and delayed delivery of the models it had booked earlier, the report said.
