ents, as a new reference for bank loans, instead of the existing one-year benchmark lending rate.上海千花网
The new LPR was reported for the first time on Tuesday at 4.25 percent for one-year loans, low
上海千花网女神会所er than the 4.35 percent one-year benchmark lending rate which has been unchanged since August 2015. The LP
R for five-year loans was at 4.85 percent, according to the National Interbank Funding Center.
Many analysts have seen the new measure as an alternativ上海千花网女神会所
e way of cutting overall interest rates. In response, central bank officials said the reform itself
cannot replace the monetary policy or other policies, but it can improve the effectiveness of monetary policy.
Sun Guofeng, head of the central bank’s Monetary Policy Department, said the market-oriented inte上海千花网女神会所
rest rate reform will not have a direct impact on the renminbi exchange rate. “The market rates are directly
上海千花网related to the exchange rate, but this reform is not involved with changes of market rates.”
He said the current interest rate spread between China and the United States “is within a comfortable zone”.
While many developed countries use monetary easing to spur econ上海千花网女神会所
omic growth, China is the only country among major economies to retain a normal mone
上海千花网tary policy, and the valuation of yuan-denominated assets is still at a relatively lower level. All of these factors can hel
p to maintain the renminbi exchange rate at a stable and adaptive level, Sun added.
Even under the new scheme, the interest rate level for mortgage loans will not decline, as the government will not ease the rea上海千花网女神会所

Liye town, Longshan county, Hunan province. The front and back of the slip contain the fo上海千花网女神会所
rmula in Chinese characters, which is believed to be the earliest and most complete such model in the country.
The slip was among some 38,000 bamboo and wooden pieces found in the well and d
上海千花网ates to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), China’s first unified empire that was powerful but short-lived.
The discovery of these slips, as well as other excavations at the Liye relic site, is deemed on
e of the most important archaeological findings in China since the beginning of the 21st century上海千花网女神会所
It is not only because the Liye slips were 10 times the total number of Qin slips discovered in other parts of China before, but also be
cause the Liye slips bear more than 200,000 characters, documenting the political, economic and social aspects of Liy
上海千花网e life, a riverside military fortress during Qin rule. The relics are helping historians to understand more about the dyn
asty’s bureaucracy and economic systems, as written records about Qin were previously unclear.
After years of decoding and interpreting the information on the slips, researchers from Hunan are n上海千花网女神会所

These objects are from the collections of the Hunan Provincial Institute of Archaeology in Changsha and the Liye Qi

media for texts before paper was invented by Cai Lun, an official of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220).
Pieces from the collection of Liye slips, which have been cleaned, date from 222 BC to 20上海千花网
8 BC, unfolding a panoramic view of administrative management at the prefecture level then, as well as ep
itomizing the area’s social life. It is through these tiny slips and glimpses of a small t上海千花网女神会所
own’s past that people today are able to get a bigger picture of the rise and fall of Qin rulers.
Archaeologists and historians view the significance of the Liye slips rivalin

For Yu, who entered the Liaoning Ballet in 2009, it has been a unique process.
“In the past, I often played the roles of a swan or a princess. This tim上海品茶微信

art well, she had to do push-ups and fight with sticks on stage, just like the male dancers.
上海品茶微信The story originates from a Northern Dynasty (386-581) folk song, known as the Ballad of Mulan. The song tells the tal

high distinction. However, she refuses the accolades thrust upon her and ultimately retires to her hometown.上海品茶微信
Besides the physical techniques required, Chinese b

“Playing the legendary warrior has made me grow up and deepened my understanding of performance, life and Chin上海品茶微信

Qu Zijiao, 57-year-old director of the Liaoning Ballet, says: “To tell Ch

She says it is a touching story, and Mulan’s heroic spirit, perseverance, and love fo
