violence is intolerable

On the evening of July 21, some radical demonstrators stormed the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), defaced the national emblem and painted insulting words on the wall. The vicious acts have trampled the rule of law in Hong Kong and challenged the authority of the Central Government, and are absolutely intolerable. Earlier, violent protesters stormed the HKSAR Legislative Council complex, surrounded the police headquarters, attacked police officers and illegally stored dangerous goods and large amounts of offensive weapons. The protesters’ behaviors have gone far beyond peaceful demonstrations.

Rebalancing Progress The economy moved a step forward in external rebalancing with the current account surplus plunging from more than 10 percent of the GDP in 2007 to 0.4 percent in 2018. The substantial decline can be attributed to shrinking trade balance driven by high import growth and an increase in services deficit, mostly driven by tourism, as well as higher commodity and semiconductor prices, according to a report released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Sun Xuegong, Director of the Institute of Economic Research of the National Development and Reform Commission, said the reduction means the economy has become more reliant on domestic demand, rather than external factors. “In an overall perspective, the current account surplus decline is conducive to the stability of the macroeconomy as a more domestic demand-driven economy has fewer…
