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

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang urged the US gover

 government on Tuesday to consider the costs it would bear through raising tariffs.

He reiterated that China will never capitulate under any external pressure and hopes the US meets China halfway.

The US has no need to “worry about” China’s affairs, Geng said at a daily news conference. The country has made progress i

improving its foreign investment environment and has become a popular investment destination, he sa

id, citing the expansion of US-based Exxon Mobil Corp and Tesla Inc in the market last year.

Geng stressed that China welcomes foreign companies to increase investment in the market and will co

ntinue to establish a more stable, fair, transparent and predictable investment and business environment.

Perhaps most notably, the growth rate of women workers wa

s higher than men in new media operators and data analysts among the five professions, illustrating that burgeoning career opportunities and skill requ

irements are presenting an unprecedented advantage for women. That’s a change from the past, when women

normally had more household duties, especially in the era of universal two-child policy, he said.

Lu also said that the number of people engaged in human-centered job positions was growing faster than other rules.

“It implied that jobs requiring insights into people’s preferences and habits, such a

s marketing and human resources, are irreplaceable by machine intelligence so far,” Lu said.

A survey jointly conducted by research firm Trustdata and LinkedIn in April found career starters w

ere establishing their career goals earlier than past generations, exhibiting a stronger self-driven momentum.

Fretting about weight has become a common topic for

discussion among Chinese women-and not just at the office. Such discussions can be heard

everywhere, from high school classrooms to fitness studios, beauty salons and department stores.

But the issue is not just cause for concern in China. Obsessing over body shape has also emerged in Western countries over the past decade.

The term “fat talk” was coined by United States anthropologist Mimi Nic

hter and her team of researchers in 1994 after they observed the way girls in middle school

spoke about their body shapes-unexpectedly revealing that they invariably focused on the negatives.

Since then, numerous studies have detailed how pervasive “fat talk” has become among women of all ages.

A study published in the Psychology of Women Quarterly in 2011 found that an “overwhelm

ing majority of women”-93 percent-admitted to discussing the issue, with one-third of them doing so frequently.

Often these pictures do not represent how these indivi

duals look in real life without the posing, the filters, the photoshopping and the professional hair and make-up,” Martz said.

Pan, the Renmin University researcher, also believes that pi

ctures shared frequently on social media impose peer pressure on women.

“If people around you look thin on WeChat Moments, you are inevi

tably anxious to fit the general profile of having the ‘right look’,” she said.

Articles have also gone viral in summer on WeChat Moments, with sensational headlines such as “Good-looking girls never

weigh more than 50 kilograms” or “If you don’t lose weight in May, you will cry out loud in June”.

Shen Zijiao, a psychological consultant at Beijing Normal University, said: “Women don’t know what kind of beauty is best for th

em; they just thumb through their phone screens and get the notions of ‘being slender’ consciously or uncons

ciously. They always worry if their bodies are inconsistent with the so-called perfect body shape.”

Officials urged to create safe, stable societyand

Xi underlines building professional forces at key meeting on public security

President Xi Jinping urged the nation’s public security forces to fulfill their responsibilities and missions in the new era to cr

eate a safe and stable social environment that enables people to feel an even stronger sense of security.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Cent

ral Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remark at a t

wo-day national conference on public security work, which concluded in Beijing on Wednesday.

He called for building highly professional public security forces that are loyal to the Pa

rty, serve the people, promote impartiality in law enforcement and remain disciplined.

Under the new historical conditions, public security departments must

adhere to the overall national security outlook and a people-centered approach, Xi said.

The legislation states that Washington should condu

ct “regular sales” of “defense articles” to Taiwan and back its participation in international organizations.

“We urge the US side to keep its promise, abide by the one-­China policy a

nd the three joint communiques, and block the bill’s progress,” Geng said.

He urged the US to “appropriately handle the Taiwan question to avoid serious da

mage to Sino-US cooperation in key areas, and the peace and security of the region”.

Experts said the bill will further damage Sino-US relations, and the confr

ontational approach taken by the US against China will damage regional peace and security.

Yuan Zheng, director of US foreign relations research at the Institute of American Studies under the Chinese Academy of

Social Sciences, said the recent passage of US naval vessels through the Taiwan Straits, arms sales and

political support to Taiwan are meant to help Taiwan separatists and pressure Beijing.

US policy has done a disservice to the international com

munity’s efforts to advance the Middle East peace process and the remarks by the president’s son-in-law and a

dviser Jared Kushner indicating that an upcoming US peace plan does not include a two-state solution with the Palestinians sh

ows the US is hoping to undermine the international consensus built on that premise. Given its complex and chronic nat

ure, there is no quick remedy to the decades-old enmity between Israelis and Palestinians. But both sides need to exe

rcise the utmost restraint so as to avoid sparking another vicious circle of violence.

Meanwhile, the latest bloodshed should convince the inte

rnational community of the urgency of finding a way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian co

nflict. The US is in no position to act as mediator, but it should avoid doing anything to make the situ

ation worse. And notwithstanding the US stance, the consensus on a two-state solution needs to be shored up and grea

ter efforts need to be made to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli issue through dialogue and negotiations.
