i calls for villagers to a 上海419chieve rural vitalization

President Xi Jinping has encouraged residents of a mountainous township in Fujian provi

 上海419nce to continue their unrelenting efforts to consolidate poverty reduction outcomes and achieve rural vitalization.

Xi, who also is general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Co 上海419

mmission, made the remark in a letter replying to residents of the township of Xiadang, in the province’s Shou­ning county.

 上海419In a letter to Xi, the villagers wrote they had shaken off poverty and e

xpressed their gratitude to the CPC Central Committee and the general secretary.

Xi’s letter, published on Tuesday, recalled the three arduous

journeys he made to the township, saying he still has vivid memories of the area. 上海419品茶微信

Xi worked in Fujian between 1985 and 2002. He made his first trip to the township to lea

rn about poverty alleviation and provide instructions on the work on July 19, 1989, when he was Par

ty secretary of Ningde. The township was once among the most remote and poorest areas in Ningde. 上海419

It took him a three-hour car ride and a two-hour walk in scorching sum

mer heat to reach the township, which had no paved roads at the time, according to

Xinhua News Agency. He made another two trips to township, later that year and in 1996. 上海419品茶微信

Xi expressed his delight after learning that the township had shaken off poverty, and he offered hearty congratulations to villagers.

After 30 years of unremitting efforts, Xiadang has shifted from being almost inaccessible to being easily reached and has 上海419

been transformed inside and out, with residents having an increasing sense of gains and happiness, Xi said.

It has been a vivid example of the truth of such sayings as, “A slow sp

 上海419品茶微信arrow should make an early start” and “Little strokes fell great oaks”, he said.

Xi said he hopes the villagers will forge ahead with a persistent spirit, enhance their confi

dence and make sustained and arduous efforts to consolidate the outcomes of poverty reduction.

He also encouraged them to explore a path of rural vitalization with the characteristics of eastern Fujian during the process. 上海419品茶微信

The letter to Xi was written by six Party members on behalf of all villagers in the township.

When US President Don上海千花网p assumed office in Jan

anuary 2017, he pledged GDP growth at 4 percent. More recently, he projected

上海千花网女神会所US growth at 3 percent. Yet analysts estimate US growth this year at 2.5 percent or less. Quali

tative assessments suggest deterioration, as the growth of domestic demand is slumping.

Worse, US GDP growth forecasts for 2020 indicate softening to 1.8 per上海千花网

cent, possibly a (near-recession) slowdown-especially if trade and tech wars still

escalate. In the absence of negative surprises, China’s GDP growth is lik

上海千花网ely to stay within the target of 6.2 percent in 2019 and possibly in 2020 as well, with

supportive fiscal and monetary conditions. US tariff wars are likely to penalize the Chinese economy by less

上海千花网女神会所than 0.5 percent of GDP, which could be offset by just a modest depreciation of the renminbi.

If recent policy mistakes in the White House prevail, slower growth in i

nvestment spending, rising concern for continued trade wars and destabilizing geopolitics are likely to foster downside上海千花网

risks in global economic prospects, as risks for further downgrades morph into actual realities.
