The rules, coming into effect on Jan 1, 2019, also stipulate

that a stay of less than 24 hours on the mainland will not be counted as a day, and the count started from Jan. 1 this year.

The adjustment marked more generous tax exemptions on overseas-sourced incomes of foreigne

rs and non-mainland citizens working in the mainland. The move will attract more foreign investm

ent and overseas talent to work in the mainland, the STA said in a statement on its website.

Previously, the exemption was for tax residents who have lived on the mainland for less than five years.A house collapse triggered by a lan

Chen Jingxue, a researcher with Kantar Worldpanel, sai

many Chinese leave their hometowns to make a living in big cities, where they live alone. This makes it inevitable that they will do things on their own at times.

“Due to life’s stresses, sometimes they will actively look for the chance to escape from social interaction to enjoy solitude. As a re

sult, dining, traveling and singing karaoke or watching movies alone has become more common,” she said.

Chen added that the perception of single people has witnessed profound

changes, as there is no longer any stigma attached to them and many prefer to remain alone.

“Whether in TV shows or movies, there are increasing scenarios that tell people they sho

uld remain independent, and it is possible to live a nice life without getting married, especially for women,” she said.

The reductions will be up by more than 50 percent on

with tax cuts alone accounting for more than 10 percent of the tax revenue target this year, according to the government budget, Wang said.

The cuts aim to reduce the burden on manufacturing companies, small

and micro-sized enterprises, and the working class, in an effort to stabilize em

ployment, the financial sector, trade, domestic investment and market confidence, Wang said.

He made the comments during an interview at the annua

l meetings of the national legislature and China’s top political advisory body.

“This scale of tax cuts and fee reductions has rarely been seen over the past decades, both

inside and outside China. It demonstrates the resolution, confidence, wisdom and power of our Party and gov

ernment to overcome difficulties and make great efforts to build a strong state,” he said.

Indian PM Modi’s reputation as a strong leader put to

  As tensions between India and Pakistan escalate yet again wit

h Delhi launching airstrikes on what it says was a terrorist training camp across its de facto bord

er with Islamabad, all eyes are on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

  As the world’s biggest democracy heads into general elections in a few weeks, the

government’s stance on its nuclear armed neighbor comes at a critical time.

  Modi built up formidable support ahead of his 2014 campaign, in which his Bha

ratiya Janata Party (BJP) claimed a record-breaking 282 seats in the national parliament.

  Since joining the Hindu nationalist organization Rashtriya Sway

amsevak Sangh (RSS) in 1972, and joining ma

instream politics 15 years later as a member of the BJP, Modi has enjoyed a steady rise to power.

PYONGYANG — Kim Jong-un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), left here Saturday afternoon by train f

or Vietnamese capital Hanoi for the second DPRK-US summit, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Sunday.

Kim will meet with US President Donald Trump there on Feb 27-28. Their first meetin

g was held in June 2018 in Singapore, which resulted in improved bilateral relations.

Kim will pay an official visit to Vietnam at the invitation of Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Trong before his meeting with Trump.

Kim was accompanied by Kim Yong-chol, Ri Su-yong, Kim Phyong-hae and O Su-yong, members of th

e Political Bureau and vice-chairmen of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of K

orea (WPK), Ri Yong-ho, member of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Com

mittee and foreign minister, No Kwang-chol, alternate member of the Po

litical Bureau of the WPK Central Committee and minister of the People’s Armed Forces, among others, said the KCNA.

One of the goals of Pompeo’s visit is to rebuild the political

relationship between the US and Central and Eastern Europe. The US will also launch a Future Leaders Ex

change Program, providing one-year academic scholarships for Hungarian high school students to study in the US.

There are many aspects to US strategic return to Central and Eastern Europe. First, the US can

enhance energy cooperation with the region. The regional countries would prefer not to become overly dependent on Russia.

The US has already voiced strong opposition to the energy cooperation between Germany and Russia via the Nord Stream 2 project.

Given that the US is set to become a net energy exporting country in 2020, it could become a major source of energy for Central and Eastern European countries.

Second, the US will strengthen political cooperation with Central and Eastern European countries.

The region has undertaken multifaceted diplomacy, hoping to win more policy initiatives in tod

ay’s volatile geopolitical dynamic. As they receive less political and economic promises from the EU, they are turning to e

xternal powers such as China and Russia. The US wants to get back in as quickly as possible to make up for its absence.

Ministry of Education addresses Zhai plagiarism case

The Ministry of Education has zero tolerance for academic misconduct and has ordered relevant universities and education authorities to investigate pl

agiarism allegations leveled at actor Zhai Tianlin, a ministry spokeswoman said on Friday.

The investigation will not only include Zhai’s plagiarism allegations, but also possible miscond

uct of other people that allowed this to happen, ministry spokeswoman Xu Mei said at a news conference.

“We have zero tolerance for behaviors that ignore academic rules and standards and undermine education equality,” she said.

The universities and Beijing education authorities will seriously look i

nto the case and publish the investigation’s results as soon as possible, she added.

The Beijing Education Commission and the Education Work Committee of the

Beijing Committee of the Communist Party of China sent an investigative team to

Robert Aspell, president for Asia-Pacific of the US agricultural

nglomerate Cargill Inc, said the best way to solve trade issues is to talk to each other, communicating to find solutions.

“A large number of global companies have invested in China; it is a clear signal that Ch

ina is going to further open its markets, and many opportunities can be found in different sectors across the country,” he said.

Experts said the new progress, reached by collaborative efforts from both sides, can im

prove the outlook for both the US and Chinese economies and benefit the global economy and supply chain in 2019.

The Chinese and US economies are so inextricably intertwined that a blow to one would most li

kely make a dent in the other, too, said Bai Ming, deputy director at the International Market Institute of the

Beijing-based Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

This interdependence would exact far-reaching damage on the optimal resource allocation of both countries if trade tensions esc

alated, said Chen Wenling, chief economist at the China Center for Economic Exchanges. “The US needs C

hinese goods as much as China needs equipment and agricultural products from the US,” she said.
