Hong Kong has agreements on extradition arrangem

angements with 20 jurisdictions. The Chinese mainland, Macao and Taiwan are not among them.

The revision was triggered by a murder case in which a Hong Kong ma

n, Chan Tong-kai, allegedly killed his pregnant girlfriend in Taiwan and then fled back to the c

ty. The Taiwan authorities are unable to prosecute him as the two sides have no fugitive transfer arrangements.

During the meeting, Han also hailed the contribution of the Hong Kong Federation of Fujian Associations in pro

moting exchanges and cooperation between Hong Kong and the mainland, as well as its efforts in maintaining Hong Kong’s

prosperity and stability. He hoped that the organization can continue to firmly safeguard national sovereignty.

Data cited from Zhaopin, an online recruitment platform

 shows that college students slated to graduate in 2019 have higher

expectations of working in these cities, than in cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

According to the platform, 44 percent of new graduates this year wish to find their jobs in new fir

st-tier cities, while only about 30 percent hope to work in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

Yang Zheng, who graduated with a master’s degree from Fudan University in Shanghai in March, said th

at he received three offers from companies in the city, but finally chose a high-tech enterprise in neighboring Hangzhou.

“I’ve spent about seven years in Shanghai, it’s time to explore a new world,” he said, laughing. “The most importa

nt reason I chose Hangzhou is the city’s potential development in the high-tech industry, which can bring us more opportunities.”

To attract more foreign investment to China, the country’s

 top legislature recently passed the Foreign Investment Law, which says China will gradually shorten the negative list fo

r foreign investors to increase inbound foreign investment. This, together with Italy’s policy to welcome Chin

ese investment, is expected to help the two countries take more measures to boost investment cooperation.

Sino-Italian friendly exchanges have a long tradition, and the prospects for deeper bilateral cooperation are bright. This ye

ar marks the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Sino-Italian comprehensive strategic partnership, and in 2

020 the two countries will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.

Therefore, the two sides should synergize their development strategies and tap the potential for further bilateral cooperation. They should also strengthen bilate

al macroeconomic policy coordination under the frameworks of G20, World Bank, Asian Development Ban

k, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and other multilateral mechanisms, and help maintain the rule-based multi

lateral trading system and jointly promote global governance reform apart from deepening Sino-Italian and Sino-EU relations.

hina to establish first Great Wall restoration center surrounded

BEIJING – China’s first Great Wall restoration center will be established in Beijing, combining academic research, restoration and protection of the ancient wall.

The center will have archaeologists, designers and craftspersons w

orking together to make targeted plans for the restoration of the Jiankou section of the Gr

eat Wall, which is located in the northern Huairou District of Beijing, according to Beijing Daily.

“The new method will effectively tackle unpredictability in excavation and protection

of the Great Wall,” Zhang Tong, an official at the cultural relics administration of Huairou, was quoted as saying.

The center will also regularly check the conditions of the Great Wall for preventive c

onservation. It will keep records of the restoration for future use, the newspaper said.

With a total length of 7,952 meters, the Jiankou Great Wall was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It was once neglected and became damaged over time.

In 2017, the working population in China’s agricultural indus

try was about 27 percent of the total workforce, but contributed only 7.9 percent of its GDP. If only 4-5 percent of China’s workforce were to work in the prim

ary industry to generate 3-4 percent of its GDP, more than 20 percent of the country’s labor force has to shift from the agr

icultural sector to the secondary and tertiary sectors. But that would mean large-scale redistribution of workers, wh

ich could create serious problems in many fields including public services and education.

Third, the number of people aged 65 or above in China is likely to account for 23 percent of the

total population in 2035. In comparison, when Japan’s per capita GDP reached 35,000 international dolla

rs in 2004, only 14.15 percent of its population was aged 65 or above. Which means China

faces a more serious aging population problem. Today, China’s median population age is about 37 years-sim

ilar to that in the US-but in 2035 it will be 46 years. So China’s aging population will pose a big challenge to the

labor market, industrial structure adjustment and the country’s overall development.

But things are gradually changing. The number of Chinese

The Chinese drinking culture is set for a transformation. According to a survey of 109,441 Chinese conducted by the China Youth Daily’s Social Investigation Center, 84 percent said they were not fan of the drinking culture in China.

The long tradition seems to be on the wane, reflecting a change in an important aspect of China’s material culture.

On one hand, as living standards improve, Chinese people pay more atte

ntion to their health. More people are choosing tea over liquor as their daily beverage. Instead

of sitting at the table for the night, people now prefer healthier lifestyles. On the other hand, Chinese pe

ople have realized that drinking culture may provide opportunities for the undeserving who can get what they want by

pleasing those who insist that they drink. This is not only unfair to the deserving but also undermines ethical conduct.

Nowadays, Chinese people have developed more decent drinking habits.

Those who risk their lives drinking heavily are not the so-called heroes anymore, and those who alw

ays urge others to drink may be gradually isolated by their friends. More and more Chinese pe

ople enjoy having only a few drinks and chat over the cup. Taking small sips and slowly tasting liquor seems more enjoyable.

In addition, real friendship cannot be measured by how much alcohol is consumed. Neither can bottles of liquor build relations am

ong people. Instead, they only hurt people’s feelings and health. When people are sober again, the ecstasy and promises disappear.

After all, true friends are those who care about your health, not those who urge you to drink.

Take my poor friend. After he got out of hospital, he completely forgot who forced him to drink at the t

able. When he was blind drunk and almost choked on his vomit, all he remembered was those who loyally stayed by his side.
