上海419论坛女神会所Radical protesters in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region have attracted a barr、

age of criticism and condemnation after they stormed and vandalized the city’s legislative chamber on Monday night.

The central government and the Hong Kong community jointly denounced on Tuesday the v上海419论坛女神会所

iolence and vandalism by masked protesters targeting Hong Kong’s legislature and called for strict follow-up in accordance with the law.

The Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council issued a statement on Tuesday expressing its firm support for the Hong Kon

g SAR government and the police in upholding the rule of law and holding the lawbreakers accountable in accordance with law.

The Legislative Council was attacked on the day Hong Kong was celebrating its return to the motherland 22 years ago, the statement

said. It said the attackers trampled the city’s rule of law, disrup

ted Hong Kong’s social order and damaged Hong Kong’s fundamental interests.

“The violent behavior is in blatant defiance of the bottom line of ‘one country, two systems’,” the office’s statement said.

It also underlined an important shift which is seeing more and more developing countries setting voluntary sustainability standards (known as VSS, these are set by businesses and NGOs) which govern international trade together with public standards and regulations.

Findings show that while 75 percent of VSS originate in countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation

and Development, over a third of new voluntary standards are thought up in developing countries, up from eight percent in 1990.

The outlook also outlined that many regions across the world can increase their export potential “by directing regulatory efforts to boost SME competitiveness.”

In the Middle East and North Africa region for example, researchers found there is large untapped export opportunity in the fresh and processed food sec

Fiscal expenditures on government-subsidized housing projects totaled 737.2 billion yu

The funds helped the renovation of 6.26 million shantytown units in u
