frequently than the stick. Though it used a lighter touch in administ
ration after World War II — and this approach had limits; see above — Britain never went so fa上海会所品茶微信
r as to risk its own position. Indeed, when push came to shove the cudgel was still happily relied upon; discontent in t
上海会所he 1950s and ’60s was smothered with a force today’s protesters couldn’t begin to imagine.
Police, after all, did nothing to stop the Legislative Council from being
ransacked and defaced with the colonial flag early last month — compare that treatment wi
th the hundreds killed in protests under British rule. What’s more, even limited improvements in governance w上海会所品茶微信
ere done cynically, as a means of pacifying a restive population. “Democratic” reforms were never se
riously pursued until negotiations began between Britain and China for the restoration of Chinese sovereignty. Su
rely we can put two and two together and see this as more than mere coincidence.上海会所
But for some, this strategy worked. With a few token concessions — none of which compare to the rights the po
pulation now enjoys — certain segments were won over to the idea of living as colonial subjects. Thi
s led to a sort of Stockholm Syndrome, where despite being occupiers the British were looked upon more fav上海会所品茶微信
orably as time passed. Sovereignty and self-determination were sacrificed at the altar of getti
ng ahead in a notoriously unequal system, where class divisions only grew more and more pronounced.上海会所
Long-standing inequalities with deep roots in the colonial period are now blamed by nostalgics on post-handover adm
inistration, and this misplaced blame is amplified by bad actors with an axe to grind. Thes上海会所品茶微信
e contradictions won’t be resolved so long as outside forces attempt to interfere, and th
ere certainly won’t be any progress if the city’s past is viewed through rose-colored glasses.
s from the treaty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stability of the
world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Treaty is the上海会所
US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US di
上海会所品茶微信spensation assumed office in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and mech
anisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.
Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving bilatera上海会所品茶微信
l relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their fac
上海会所e-off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side
s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the
ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.上海会所
Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma
ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could develo
上海会所品茶微信p new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.
Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d
eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fu上海会所品茶微信
elling an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt ma
jor powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.
What is especially surprising is that some Western observers want to dra上海会所品茶微信
g China into the discussions on certain international issues regardless of wh
上海会所ether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has played an important role in improving int
ernational relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding global strategic balance and stability, and ther
efore remains very much relevant and significant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only上海会所 品茶微信
the US’ unilateral withdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.

The rural rejuvenation strategy, released last year, aims to reduce
the gap between rural and urban areas and modernize China’s agriculture and rural areas by 2035.
上海会所品茶微信Yu Fawen, a researcher in rural development at the Chinese Academy of Social Scienc

vironmental pollution, which should be addressed while carrying out the rural rejuvenation strategy.
Rural areas face many challenges – lack of investment, inadequate infrastructure and insuffi上海会所品茶微信

“The government needs to increase investment in improving infrastructure in rural areas, and more efforts are need上海会所品茶微信
