More nurses sought to treat elderly population

Health authorities will redouble their efforts to train nurses in eldercare as the

proportion of older people in the popula

tion expands and tens of millions of

people struggle with disabilities, a senior health official said on Wednesday.

Jiao Yahui, deputy chief of medical administration and supervision at the Nation

al Health Commission, said there are not

enough nurses to cope with the growing needs of the country’s elderly.

A regulation on the training of healthcare workers and standards of service is being drafted.

It is expected to boost the number of nurse’s aides, Jiao said ahead of

International Nurses Day on Sunday.

The nurse’s aides will complement the work of full-fledged nurses to meet the demand for services for the elderly, she said.

It was Washington’s decision to recognize Jerusalem

as the capital of Israel and Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights that fueled the massive protests from Palest

inians and the Arab world and deepened the enmity between the Palestinians and Israelis.

The Trump administration has closely aligned itself with Israel’s right wing, and on Su

nday night, US President Donald Trump reinforced this when he tweeted his “100%” su

pport for Israel’s actions, blaming the violence on “terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad”.

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since the Islamic militant group s

eized control of Gaza from Western-backed Palestinian forces in 2007, but its leader Ism

ail Haniyeh said Hamas is “not interested in a new war” and is ready to “return to the state of calm” if Israel stop

s its attacks “and immediately starts implementing understandings about a dignified life”. In the past, Hamas has hal

ted attacks in return for the easing of an Egyptian and Israeli blockade imposed on Gaza.

The 20-year-old said she first learned about the history

The volunteer team-led by Wu Liangliang, a security guard who has gained online fame for his fluent self-taught En

glish-has also been part of the site’s efforts to provide a more personal management style, in addition to the city go

vernment’s introduction of various measures, including a mobile app, to help tourists.

Larry Goodrich, from Seattle, who has been traveling with his wife

in the Yangtze River Delta for three weeks, lauded the volunteers’ contributions.

Having worked in the computer industry since “the era of brick-si

zed cellphones”, the 65-year-old said that while technology has provided unimaginable con

venience, traveling is about being a part of the destination and interacting with local residents.

“The human connection is always better,” said Goodrich.

In the 1980s, the share of the US in the world econ

omy was more than 20 percent; in the past four decades, it has steadily

declined to 15 percent. At the same time, China’s share (in purchasing powe

r parity terms) has soared from 5 percent to about 20 percent. While the PPP indicators inflate the

pace of progress, the trend lines do herald a coming structural shift in the world economy.

China can foster the share of developing nations

In the future, the well-being of the advanced economies will de

pend on the rising living standards in less-wealthy nati

ons. And just as US leadership supported the role of the advanced countries in the 20th century world, Ch

ina has the potential to foster the share of emerging and developing countries in the 21st century.

In particular, the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative can redirect domestic overcapacity and ca

pital for regional infrastructure development to improve trade and relations with Southeast and So

uth Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe-even across the Americas and Sub-Saharan Africa.

financing cooperation center has recently been established — jointly with eight multilateral develo

pment institutions including the World Bank, Asian Development Bank and Asian Infrastructure In

China releases report on progress, contributions and pro

China on Monday published a report elaborating on the progress, contributions and prospects of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

The document, prepared by the office of the leading group for promoting the BRI, was released ahead

of the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation to be held from April 25 to 27 in Beijing.

The Belt and Road Initiative is an initiative for peaceful

development and economic cooperation, rather than a geopolitical or military alliance, said the rep

ort. “It is a process of open, inclusive and common development, not an exclusionary bloc or a ‘China club’.”

“It neither differentiates between countries by ideology nor plays the zero-sum

game. Countries are welcome to join the initiative if they so will,” according to the report.

The BRI has turned ideas into actions and vision into reality, and i

tself into a public product widely welcomed by the international community, the report said.
