Legal experts called for China to protect juveniles through cybersecurity legislation a
nd redoubled efforts against school bullying after several cases aroused public outrage and concern.
Fang Yan, a lawyer from Shaanxi province, said that it’s good to see the nation adding to the protectio
n of juveniles in the past few years, “but in some new aspects, such as cyberspace, the protection is far from enough”.
At the end of 2018, China had 829 million netizens, of whom almost 20 percent w
ere under the age of 18, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.
Another report released by the center in March said that 15.6 percent of juven

they had been exposed to pornography, gambling or drugs in cyberspace.

hang Jun, head of the Xichang branch of the Liangshan forest fire briga
de, and his team members went back to Xichang from Muli on Wednesday. Recalling the er
uptive fire, Zhang said it had been the first blaze of its kind he’d encountered in a dozen years of firefighting, China News Serv
ice reported. “I was at the south part of the fire, when I heard a blare and saw a mushroom cloud about 50 to 60 meters hig
h rising from the valley. Two to three minutes later, dense smoke began to fall and the communication equipment didn’t work.”
Zhang divided his team during the firefighting. One of them, consisting of 10 firefighters, only had four escape with their lives.
Zhao Maoyi still sees his dead teammate four days after the eruptive fire. When his team decided to evacu
ate after hearing blasts, the fire spread to their location from the foot of a mountain in seconds. They were blocked by a huge l
og. “I pushed one onto the log and used my last strength to climb over the log. When I looked back, I saw the desperate look
on an 18-year-old teammate,” Zhao cried. “I dream about him every night, I hear him saying ‘give me a hand'”.
ital economy will be the new engines for the economy, while some traditional driv
ing forces, such as injecting funds into the market, are losing momentum, Zhu said.
China’s total GDP exceeded 90 trillion yuan ($13.4 trillion) in 2018, and the per capita GDP was
about $9,700. Economists predict that if the country maintains growth of at least 6 percent this
year, which is likely given the current momentum, its per capita GDP this year would surpass $10,000.
That means China would move closer to the standards for a “high-inco
me country” — above $12,736 in per capital GDP — set by the World Bank in 2015.
However, a productivity slowdown, aging population and unbalanced regional development could be among the “bot
tlenecks” that constrain China in becoming a high-income country, economists said.
and reduce costs of internet services, which will be good not only for consumers but also for industrial upgrading.
The country’s three telecom carriers — China Mobile Communications, China United Network Comm
unications Group and China Telecommunications Corp — announced steps to scrap domestic long-distan
ce and roaming charges from Oct 1, 2017, and cancel data roaming fees within the country starting July 1, 2018.
However, increasing speed and cutting charges doesn’t bring less
revenue for telecom operators. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, du
ring the first half of last year, revenues from the telecom business rose 4.1 percent year-on-year to 672 billion yuan.
Mobile internet traffic jumped 199.6 percent to 26.6 billion gigabytes. Among them, inter
net usage via phones soared 214.7 percent to 26.2 billion gigabytes, accounting for 98.3 percent of the total.
the basic prerequisites that micro and small enterprises should meet to renew their loans and on the regulatory
requirements for banking institutions to do this type of business.
The loan renewal policy does not apply to real estate companies or enterprise group head office that are not engaged in production
and business operation. Besides, qualified companies should not have delinquent loans and interests with malice, according to Jiang.
In terms of pricing, the regulator said commercial banks should adhere to market principl
es and encouraged banks to renew micro and small business loans at a lending rate no higher than the previous rate.
As of the end of 2018, the balance of micro and small business loans of the banking sector in Beijing
increased by 15.23 percent year-on-year to 1.2 trillion yuan ($176.95 billion). During the same pe
riod, the number of micro and small enterprises that received loans grew by 59,500 to 257,200.
A recent survey on 617 micro and small businesses in 200 villages in Beijing’s peripheral areas found that at the start-up phase, 13 perc
ent of the businesses obtained bank loans, 13 percent borrowed from friends and relatives, 8 percent secured funding from
microcredit companies, nearly 8 percent received loans from small lending services offered by Alibaba Group Ho
lding Ltd and Tencent Holdings Ltd, while the majority of business owners used their own money or borrowed from individual creditors, said Mo Xiugen, di
rector of research at the Chinese Academy of Financial Inclusion at Renmin University of China.
He advised policymakers to encourage joint-stock commercial banks and microcredit com
panies to play a bigger part in providing financing to micro and small companies, as these financial institu
tions are more flexible and experienced in serving small business clients than large State-owned commercial banks.
