eral public. They are a special commodity, and should not be subject to arbitrary price hikes,” he said at the meeting.
Li called for more measures in line with market principles to亚博贵宾夜网女神会所
adjust prices so the general public can be assured drug prices are stabilizing.
亚博贵宾夜网Some experts attributed the shortages to price hikes for active pharmace
ut i cal ingredients, saying that more must be done to boost their production.
Shi Lichen, founder of Beijing Dingchen Consultancy, which specializes in research on the pharmaceutical sector, sai亚博贵宾夜网女神会所
d many active ingredient producers had been closed for various reasons in the last
few years, and many remaining players in the sector had raised prices due to their market dominance.
亚博贵宾夜网”There must be more punitive measures from the authorities on price manipulation,” he said.
“Meanwhile, it is important for the authorities to encourage pha
rmaceutical businesses to establish their own production lines for active pharmac亚博贵宾夜网女神会所
eutical ingredients, so that they can better withstand market risks from the supply end.”
The State Council meeting also emphasized the nee
d to expand imports of much-needed medicines to meet public demand.亚博贵宾夜网
Medical institutions will face tighter drug use supervision so that basic medicines ha
ve priority in both procurement and utilization. The proportion of basic medicines t亚博贵宾夜网
o total drug stock will be raised at State-run grassroots hospitals, the statement said.
亚博贵宾夜网女神会所The Cabinet urged efforts to improve early warning systems for medicine shortages, implement a productio
n suspension reporting system, prompt medical institutions to set inventory warni
ng lines and build up reserves of medicines that might encounter severe shortages.亚博贵宾夜网
It also called for greater government oversight over drug pricing to p
亚博贵宾夜网女神会所event unreasonable price hikes. Businesses found to have raised prices unreas
onably will be identified publicly or disqualified from the government procurement network.
uraging farmers to grow soybeans, as seen in China and many other countries such as the US, other ways should be expl
ored to increase domestic soybean production, such as developing new species, she said.亚博贵宾夜网
According to the ministry, while continuing to encourage international trade in s
亚博贵宾夜网oybeans, China is also making efforts to diversify its imports of the crop. It has increased imports from co
untries such as Argentina to minimize risks from turmoil in international relations.亚博贵宾夜网品茶微信
Zhou Tianyong, an economics professor at the University of Science
亚博贵宾夜网and Technology Beijing, said it is not practical to rejuvenate domestic soybean product
ion solely through the provision of subsidies, which require heavy government investment.
He said more efforts should be made to improve productivity – so that fewer farme亚博贵宾夜网
rs can produce more soybeans – to reduce costs and increase domestic competitiveness.
Meanwhile, he suggested that authorities could consider using more uncultivated land, in
亚博贵宾夜网品茶微信cluding desert and grassland, to enable it to be used for soybean production.
Ji, from the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Bureau in Wudalianchi city, said domes
tic development of soybeans still faces many challenges, including higher production costs than for imported
products, and a lack of processing services for the domestic crop. Higher subsi亚博贵宾夜网品茶微信
dies for soybean exports from some countries mean the produce can be sold in China at e
ven lower prices, worsening the situation for the domestically produced crop, he said.亚博贵宾夜网
“Authorities should formulate more policies to sup
port development of the soybean industry, and provide more support f
亚博贵宾夜网品茶微信or the production of non-GM soybeans through financial subsidies and insurance coverage.
“Subsidies should not only cover farmers who plant soybeans, but also other factors suc
h as the research and development of soybeans, logistics, processing and consumption.”亚博贵宾夜网
Ji said the authorities could provide more support for soybean insurance cove
rage, to enable farmers to be better prepared for losses stemming from natural disa
亚博贵宾夜网品茶微信sters. More efforts should also be made to promote domestically produced soybeans to increase exports.
In addition, more should be done to protect the environment in m
ajor soybean production areas to improve the production and quality of the crop, he said.亚博贵宾夜网品茶微信
The precise satellite positioning program organized in Hangzhou, East China’s Zhejiang provi
nce, targeting 364 historical buildings in the city’s central area, was completed by the city’s hi亚博贵宾夜网女神会所
storical building protection center recently, Qianjiang Evening News reported.
By comparing and analyzing multiple satellite images, people can get a more comprehensive understanding of the historical buildings.亚博贵宾夜网
Although image clarity from different satellites has varied, some images sent back have been quite clear
亚博贵宾夜网女神会所, according to the report. Roof structures, planting conditions and certain decorative objects in the yards can also be observed.
“Except for the rooftops, the surrounding environment and the conditions of the w
hole area also come with a plain view,” said a staff member with the protection center.亚博贵宾夜网
Currently, the daily supervision of the city’s historical buildings i
亚博贵宾夜网女神会所s completed mainly through regular human inspections, especially in bad weather.
But now, these checks have been supplemented with precise satellite positioning, which enables remote mo
nitoring of the historical buildings and fills in the inspection blanks in time and space.亚博贵宾夜网
This program also provides reasonable grounds for protective law enforcement.
亚博贵宾夜网女神会所”(Previously) when our staff members inspected the protection con
ditions, they may not have been able to enter those buildings. Some of them are enclosed so th亚博贵宾夜网
ey may look normal from the outside, but may have already been pulled down inside,” said a staff member in charge. “B
亚博贵宾夜网女神会所ut now they can be inspected through images from the satellite and any destructive behavior will be discovered.”
The historical conditions of these buildings in geographical space can also be reviewed back in time via the satellite imagery ‘
’system, which can provide pictures dating back to the early days after the People’s Republic of China was founded.
hat the ban will be an alarm bell for China, and the Chinese government and domestic comp
anies will accelerate the push for developing core industries, including in chips manufacturing.
“As the division of the telecom industrial chain has become globalized, the US ban will also affect US chipmakers’ income,” the report
said. “Huawei lists 33 US companies among core suppliers, accounting for 36 percent of its total key suppliers.”
A strong 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck Peru on Sunday morning, the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) said.
No casualties or material damages have so far been reported.
The IGP first reported the quake measured 7.2 magnitude. It was recorded at 02:41
am local time (0741 GMT) in the province of Alto Amazonas in northern area of the Loreto region.
Hernando Tavera, head of the IGP, told local media: “The quake has been percei
ved with a fairly large radius, including Lima, Junin, Pasco and Iquitos, where there has been a power cut.”
roject, including Russia, Egypt and Algeria, and 17 domestic research teams, including on
e from University of Science and Technology of China, have started research on the site, Zheng noted.
The site will “offer research teams with observation equipmen
t, support for outdoor observation and data sharing services”, he said.
Wu Zhongliang, director of the administra
tion’s Institute of Earthquake Forecasting, said the experimental site will help for
m a “united front” at the national and international level to work on earthquake forecasting.
Referring to earthquake forecasting as a hard nut to crack, Wu said the work can
not see marked progress just in a few days, but forecasting capability will be improved a
s technology develops. “If it’s a war between humans and earthquakes, it’s us that will finally win,” he said
