t Institute at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said China

‘s agricultural sector was plagued by inefficient production practices foryabo sports app会所品茶微信

many years, while annual output was highly susceptible to changes in climate.

For example, from 1959 to 1961 large parts of the country experienced a severe drought.yabo sports app会所

In 1961, the arid conditions reduced the total crop yield by 61 million metric tons, a 30 percent fall from 1958.

Since the early 1980s, the central leadership has attached great significan

yabo sports app会所ce to agricultural innovation. In 2015, investment in scientific and technological research reached 55 billion yu

an ($7.8 billion at today’s rates), compared with 720 million yuan in 1978, Du said.

According to the ministry, more than 96 percent of fields dedicated to the cultivationyabo sports app会所品茶微信

of major crops, including rice, corn and wheat, are sown with high-yield, resilient species.

yabo sports app会所A number of crop-breeding platforms that employ scientifically proven approaches-such as the use of “dwarf-st

erile” wheat, the “super rice” system and hybrid corn breeding-have been established to fast-t

rack improvements in edible crops and ensure the food supply is reliable and safe in the long term.

The wide application of modern farming techniques hayabo sports app会所品茶微信

s also helped farmers to raise yields and reduce damage to the environment.

At present, environmentally friendly methods are used to prevent and control pests on 56.7 mill

ion hectares under cultivation, accounting for 15 percent of the total area affected by such pests.

yabo sports app会所Meanwhile, smarter use of pesticides in demonstra

tion areas has reduced the use of chemicals by 20 to 30 percent, the ministry said.

The use of fertilizers has been further contained as a result of a nationwide campaign lyabo sports app会所品茶微信

aunched in 2005. It aims to tailor the use of synthesized fertilizers to suit local soil conditions

and improve awareness of the scientific management of fertilizers among farmers.

Increasing global deyabo sports app会所nd for Chinese products du

yabo sports app会所ding scales. But the greatest factor driving Chinese enterprises’ continuous development is innovation.

Reform will promote innovation. Innovation will generate new demand and prompt Chinese enterprises to impr

yabo sports app会所品茶微信ove their quality, while technological innovation is key to their development and expansion. And to c

hange their long-term dependence on low-end products, the Chinese companies, with the government’s active h

elp, have invested more in research and development to facilitate their qualitative growth and expansion.yabo sports app会所

Last year, China’s total investment in R&D accounted for 2.18 percent of GDP, equivalent to the average of OECD countries, with the average R&D intensity o

yabo sports app会所f high-tech enterprises and A-share listed companies being about 3 percent and 4.87 percent.

Higher R&D investment has increased the enterprises’ capacity for independent innovation and competition advantage.

In particular, since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in November 2012, which foryabo sports app会所

mulated the innovation-driven development strategy and five new development concepts, Chinese en

yabo sports app会所品茶微信terprises have increased R&D investment and achieved remarkable breakthroughs in core technologies. In

fields as important as aviation, railways and 5G technology, Chinese enterprises have even taken a leading position.

Huawei is a good example of an innovation-driven high-tech Chinese company.yabo sports app会所

For years Huawei’s R&D intensity has been above 14 percent. In actual terms, Huawei’s R&D investment las

yabo sports app会所品茶微信t year was 101.5 billion yuan ($14.77 billion)-the fifth-highest in the world and more than that of Microsoft, Apple an

d Intel. Also, by the end of last year, Huawei had more than 87,800 global patents. No wonder Huawei’s R&D in

vestment and abundant innovation have placed Huawei at 61 on the 2019 Fortune Global 500 list.yabo sports app会所品茶微信

The form has multiple sections, including a section on “aggravating factor

s” that asks jurors, among other things, if Christensen killed Zhang “in an espeyabo sports app会所品茶微信

cially heinous, cruel, or depraved manner” and whether he’s shown no remorse, and a section on “mitigation fa

yabo sports app会所ctors” asking if aspects of Christensen’s “background, record or character … mitigate against imposition of a death sentence”.

The jurors had to independently assess if aggravating factors presente

d by US prosecutors regarding how Christensen killed Zhang and the impact her death hayabo sports app会所品茶微信

s had on others “sufficiently outweigh the mitigating factors”, according to the penalty-phase form.

yabo sports app会所On Wednesday, the jury asked the judge whether the prosecution’s aggravating factor of

future dangerousness referred to while Christensen was in prison or if he were free or had never been caught. Th

e judge circled “in prison” after a brief discussion with defense lawyers and prosecutors. yabo sports app会所

Jurors also asked if the jury was supposed to quantify the number of jurors who fo

yabo sports app会所品茶微信und each mitigating factor proved by a preponderance of the evidence. Both sides agreed the answer is yes.

On Thursday, the jury asked how the number of jurors who found a mitigating factor to exist could be used after the trial.

“We are inclined not to share our results,” a juror wrote.yabo sports app会所品茶微信

“We need help,” the jury then said in a message to the court on Thursday, asking the judge about what would happen if they c

yabo sports app会所ouldn’t reach a unanimous decision — just about one hour before the judge announced the verdict.

“I think today must be the most disappointing day for Zhang’s family ot

her than the day they acknowledged Yingying was kidnapped and killed,” Wangyabo sports app会所品茶微信

Zhidong, a Chicago-based lawyer who represents Zhang’s family, told China Daily after the sentencing.

“But we have to know that it’s very difficult to seek the death penalty in federal court,” Wang said, adding that jur

ies have sentenced defendants to death in only 36 percent of the cases that went to trial.yabo sports app会所品茶微信

Since the reinstatement of the federal death penalty in 1988, 78 people have been sentenced to death — but only three ha

On the other hand,yabo sports app会所he past, the Fed now has t

to take the delayed effect of balance sheet reduction conducted earlier into its consideration of rate cuts. The current phase-out of balanc

yabo sports app会所e sheet reduction already has some easing effect, and only after the balance sheet reduction ends in September, can its impact become clearer.

By incorporating that impact into consideration, the Fed can draw up a better rate cut plan that maximizes effects of the policy mix.yabo sports app会所

Thirdly, the market may have overestimated how much the Fed will cut the rates. There may be no more than three rate cuts by the end of 2020.

St. Louis Fed President James Bullard – the major advocate of this

round of rate cut – has suggested the use of the modern-day Taylor rule, which fairly well explains thyabo sports app会所

e Fed’s interest rate decisions. Even based on this model adopted by dovish Fed officials, we found that the degree of rate cuts may be weaker than m

yabo sports app会所arket expectation for quite some time going forward: at most one cut by the end of this year and likely two or three cuts by the end of 2020.

By contrast, before the June FOMC meeting, the market expected a higher-than-85-percent chance of more than one rate cut by the

end of this year as well as an about 60-percent chance of more than three cuts by the end of 2020, according to Bloomberg data.yabo sports app会所品茶微信

In conclusion, we think as economic downside pressure gradually emerges, the Fed will have to kick off the rate cut cycle. But the rate cut siyabo sports app会所品茶微信

gnal, timing and degree may not measure up to the market expectation. Therefore, two future developments appear possible:

First, investor sentiment can reverse drastically if the Fed’s action fails to meet market expecyabo sports app会所品茶微信

tation. Considering the market has fully priced in the unrealistic expectation of rate cuts sinc

e early June, any reversal of expectation can lead to short-term fluctuations of key price signals such as the US Treasury yield cu

rve, the US Dollar Index, and the gold price, which may pose extensive spillover shocks to asset portfolios.

Second, the long-term trend of rate cuts will continue even if the market expectation reverses. In the long

run, the Fed is expected to proceed with rate cuts in a fairly slow and smooth way. This will enlarge the monetary policy room of ot

her major economies and expedite the shift toward an easing global monetary environment, which may in turn lift the sen

timent of global stock markets and ease any currency risk of emerging markets gradually.
