Northeastern province to ban release of some animals to safeguard ecosystem
A revised draft of Heilongjiang’s Wild Animals Protection Regulation, presented to the Standing Committee of t
上海楼凤he provincial People’s Congress recently, aims to strengthen protection of wildlife habitats and food chains.
It said those transporting and selling wildlife and related products should follow laws and provide relevant certificates.
The regulation would ban the unauthorized release of aquatic animals into the上海楼凤
wild and the releasing of animals that may interfere with residents’ normal lives and harm the ecosystem.
The regulation would also ban the release of wild animal species that are not nat
上海楼凤女神会所urally found in Heilongjiang or come from outside the northeastern province or overseas.
Organizers and participants in tourism, animal viewing, photography and video activities
should not interfere with the growth and reproduction of wild animals or destroy the habitats of wild animals.上海楼凤
Those violating the rules could face fines of up to 10,000 yuan ($1,420).
Wildlife expert Zhang Wei, a professor at Northeast Forestry University, in Harbin, the provincial capital, said the current regulat
ion, in force since 1996, was unable to meet the practical demands of wildlife protection. The new version, fol上海楼凤女神会所

China will support Shenzhen, adjacent to Hong Kong, in building a demonstration pi

It will help better develop the Guangdong-Hong Kon

It will be built into a modern, international and innovative city by then, with its cultural power greatly enhanced and it上海乌托邦女神会所

Borrowing costs will get lower for companies in China starting Tuesday through a
key interest rate reform brought out by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, to maintain ec上海419
onomic momentum amid the continuing trade friction with the United States.
上海419女神会所Analysts say the interest rate reform will lower financing costs for small a
nd private companies and encourage investment in the manufacturing sector.
The PBOC unveiled the policy over the weekend, saying it would introduce a new reference rate, the loan prime rate－the pr上海419
ice of loans banks offer their best clients－for setting the prices of business and household loans. The earlier re
上海419ference rate, the one-year benchmark lending rate, will be replaced in the future.
The announcement is seen as China’s most significant market-based interest rate reform for over a decade, experts said.上海419女神会所
The PBOC said in a statement that, starting Tuesday, 18 qualified commer
cial banks, including State-owned banks, city and rural commercial banks and foreign banks, will report their lend
上海419ing reference rate every month. Analysts expect the first loan prime rate will be much lower than the current 4.35 per
cent one-year benchmark lending rate, which has been unchanged since August 2015.
The statement said commercial banks will be allo上海419
wed to float the lending rates up by certain percentage points above the medium-ter
上海419女神会所m lending facility rate of the central bank. The medium-term lending rate is the cost that commercial banks sho
uld pay for borrowing from the central bank, and it was set at 3.3 percent on Thursday.
Sheng Songcheng, a central bank adviser and former head of the PBOC’s
statistics department, said the reform will help keep lending rates lower.
Moreover, the changes will enable the PBOC to effectively influence Chin上海419女神会所
a’s entire interest rate system by selling or buying financial instruments on the open
market, much like how Western central banks implement monetary policy, Sheng said.
