China has to walk a fine balance between local govern

nment debt management and stable economic growth, especially at a time when trade te

nsions with the United States have imposed more downward pressure, said economists.

More financial resources and investors will be involved in the debt resolution process, said Qiao Baoyun, head of the Acad

emy of Public Finance and Public Policy at the Central University of Finance and Economics.

The last round of local government debt swaps started in 2015 and ended in August 2018, w

hich saw 14.34 trillion yuan ($2.08 trillion) of local government debt being swapped into bonds.

Local governments are set to face more debt burden in the next three ye

According to the latest plan, the new line will extend north

ward underground to Lize Financial Business Area, which is about 3.5 km from Caoqiao Statio

n, so passengers can transfer to Line 14 and Line 16, which are under construction, and Line 11, which is planned.

Masood Khalid, Pakistani ambassador to China, said Chinese culture is a reflection of the cou

ntry’s long and rich history. “It is a civilization that has made an imprint on global culture,” he said.

The ambassador listed a variety of manifestations of Chinese culture, which include Chinese cuisine, dance, art, and costume.

“The way Chinese people attach importance to their family and their children, lookin

g after the elderly – all these practices and traditions have been inherited over time,” he said. “Then after har

d work, they come together with their families and friends.”

A city terminal will be established in the Lize Financial Business Area, p

roviding check-in and luggage check services. Passengers will enjoy more convenience with

the ability to check their luggage and get their boarding passes before they arrive at the new airport.

Uber was the biggest of a group of Silicon Valley startu

ups that have spent years raising money in private rounds at record prices. Many of these com

panies are now looking to follow with their own IPO. Some, like Uber and Lyft, are unprofitable.

Workplace messaging company Slack Technologies Inc plans to hold an investor presentation on Monday in adv

ance of its direct listing next month. Grocery and food delivery platform Postmates, WeWork owner The We Co

mpany and online mattress retailer Casper Sleep are among startups seeking to launch IPOs this year.

t once you get to the public markets you have to show profitability or a path to it,” said Jordan Stuart, a po

rtfolio manager at Federated Kaufmann who often purchases companies’ shares during an IPO.

British lawmakers reject all four Brexit options in sec

British lawmakers on Monday voted to turn down all the four proposed Brexit options on the ta

ble, the second time since Friday that none of MPs’ proposed Brexit options wins clear backing in the House of Commons.

MPs voted down all the four Brexit proposals chosen by House Speaker John Bercow in a bid to break

the current Brexit deadlock. The British government has until April 12 to decide how Britain will leave the European Union (EU).

None of the four alternatives to British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Br

exit deal receives support from a majority of MPs in the second round of “indicative vote,” whi

ch kicked off at around 20:00 BST on Monday and whose results were announced at around 22:00 BST.

MPs voted 261 to 282 to reject the proposal that the United Kingdom stays in the single market and negotiates the customs union with the EU.

The customs union proposal means Britain’s close trading relations with the European Union after Brexit.

The UK now faces a deadline of April 12 to present the EU

  with a new plan, or crash out of the bloc without an agreement.

  But May’s government is considering a fourth vote on her deal, bolstered by their suc

cess in narrowing margin of defeat to 58 votes on Friday from 230 votes in January.

  The EU has given Britain until April 12 — two weeks away — to decide

whether it wants to ask for another postponement to Brexit. The bloc has called an eme

rgency Brexit summit for April 10 to deal with a British request, or prepare for a no-deal Brexit.

  Without a delay, Britain will leave the bloc at 11 pm U.K. time (6 pm EDT) on April 12 without a divor

ce agreement to smooth the way. Most politicians, economists and business groups think such a no-deal scenario would be disa

strous, erecting customs checks, tariffs and other barriers between Britain and its biggest trading partner.

  Parliament has voted repeatedly to rule out a no-deal Brexit — but it remains the def

ault position unless a deal is approved, Brexit is canceled or the EU grants Britain another

This is like saying that because of this atrocity, every whi

  28-year-old man should now be on a watch list or face prejudice. It’s a nonsensical, prim

itive argument. Yet one that elites in powerful positions repeat, even though they should know better.

  The trope that all Muslims are somehow predisposed to violence or terrorism is dangerous an

d wrong. Most Muslims — particularly immigrants — keep their heads down, want a quiet, pea

ceful life and want to stay out of trouble. I know this because I am Muslim and know our community. We are not out to c

ause trouble. We don’t come to “invade”; we come to make a better life for ourselves.

  We run your convenience store, drive your cabs, feed you late-night food when you’ve had a drink or look after you when you’r

e ill. We serve our communities. Yet we have become the victims of harassment, hatred and now terrorism.

  Attacks — verbal and physical — on Muslims are par for the course. But society doesn’t seem to care. Our lives and p

ain don’t seem to matter as much because we are seen as second-class citizens or “bad people.”

  I wept Friday on “CNN Talk,” thinking about the sadness of it al

l. It has been a dark day. But if there is any light, it was the outpouring of grief from people of all

backgrounds around the world who sent in messages of solidarity and kindness. If we can take one lesson from the

horror of Christchurch, we have to stop this hate and see Muslims as human beings, just like anyone else.

Kim Song, North Korea’s envoy to the United Nations, sent a

  r Monday to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres calling for the UN Security Council to drop the sanctions, North Korean state media reported.

  ”The ‘sanctions resolutions’ of the Security Council aga

inst the DPRK (North Korea’s official name), that prohibit even the shipment of computers and o

ther electronic devices widely used at societies and homes of today, are indeed the action against humanity to dest

roy modern civilization and turn the society back in a (medieval) dark age,” the letter read.

  The issue of sanctions has been a key sticking point in talks between Washington and Pyongyang.

  North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said North Korea asked for removal of five of the 11 sets of sanctions levied

by the United Nations — those that “hamper the economy and the livelihood of our people.”

  But the Trump administration has said that price was too steep for what North Korea was offering.

Until now, China has 3,607 listed firms with a total market ca

capitalization of 53 trillion yuan. However, the weight of sci-tech firms remains quite limited.

The establishment of the board will help promote technological innovation, high-quality develop

ment of the economy and market-oriented reform of the capital market, according to Yi Huiman, CSRC chairman.

The tech board will ease the listing criteria, such as allowing firms that have yet to m

ake a profit to list but will also adopt higher requirements for information disclosure.

Li Chao, CSRC vice-chairman, said the new board will have strict IP

O standards and certain procedures and will not be flooded by listed firms.

The sci-tech board will focus on high-tech and strategically emerging sec

tors such as new generation information technology, advanced equipment, new ma

terials and energy, and biomedicine. The new board is likely to be rolled out as soon as the first half of this year.
