ombat Hero. When he retired from the PLA, Zhang chose to

ork in the poverty-stricken mountainous areas in Laifeng, a remote county in Hubei province. He dedicated his life to the p

eople, holding posts ranging from community-level government official to deputy manager of a local bank.

His political beliefs as a Party member supported him during the war period and in serving th

e people in peacetime, with indifference to fame and wealth, Zhang told Xinhua News Agency. He said he has been

fulfilling the oath that he had sworn when joining the Party, and that he doesn’t deserve special recognition for his a

chievements, since what he did was negligible compared with those who sacrificed their lives in the war. His left leg

was amputated seven years ago because of an illness, but Zhang stood up again on his prosthesis.

He said he doesn’t want to be a burden for others, and wants his children to work wholeheartedly for the Party and the people.

The ministry made the remarks after the United States gover

nment late last week ordered its tech companies to cut ties with China’s

Huawei and put a number of Chinese comp

anies on an export blacklist , which makes it almost impossible for listed companies to purchase US-made goods.

Gao Feng, ministry spokesman, said China will

provide consumers in various countries with quality, reliable and diverse products.

The Chinese government is confident it will protect the legitimate

rights and interests of Chinese companies, he said Thursday at a news conference.

The misuse of the state power by the US to suppress Chinese companies not only seriously undermines the commercial cooper

ation between companies on both sides, but poses a serious threat to the safety of the global industrial chain, he said.

The topic “Hotpot can be eaten by one person” has attracted about 56 million hits and more than 17,000 posts.

Cai Yani started dining alone in 2012, just after she quit her job as a maga

zine editor. During her period without work, she ate alone, but she discovered that ma

ny restaurants, especially those serving stir-fry, were reluctant to receive solo diners.

In response, Cai started filming her Solo Dining series. Each episode lasts about three minute

s and features one meal made by one person. The short series has attracted millions of views on Youku, a vid

eo-sharing platform in China, and its social media account has more than 1 million followers.

She believes the growing popularity of her films, as well as many othe

r videos and publications dedicated to eating alone, is not only due to the rising number

of singletons in China, but also the growing stress of living in big cities that pushes people to seek comfort in food.

The forecast for weaker global growth casts a shadow over efforts to im

Faced with deep-rooted structural weakness, several large

eral large developing countries are struggling to recover from recessions or remain trapped on a low growth path.

The report highlights that per capita income growth in several parts of Africa, western Asia, L

atin America and the Caribbean is expected to remain very weak in the outlook period. That poses ad

ditional challenges for the Sustainable Development Goals, including the goal to universally eradicate poverty by 2030.

The report further notes that while poverty remains predominantly

rural, further progress on poverty-reduction also hinges on the effective management of o

ngoing urbanization. That is particularly relevant for Africa and South Asia, the two regions with the highest num

ber of people in poverty, which are expected to experience the most rapid pace of urbanization in the next two decades.
