|BEIJING Wholesale Chicago White Sox Jerseys , Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- China has reported 5,046 fires in high-rise buildings since the beginning of 2017, with direct economic losses of over 80 million yuan (12.2 million U.S. dollars), according to a statement released by the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) on Wednesday.
A high-rise building refers to a public building with a height of more than 24 meters or a residential building with a height of more than 27 meters, according to the MPS.
The country has 619,000 high-rise buildings, of which 6 Wholesale Boston Red Sox Jerseys ,457 buildings have a height of more than 100 meters. The latter are increasing by 8 percent year on year, 2.5 times the world average.
In July, a campaign was launched by related departments, including the MPS and the Ministry of Civil Affairs, in a bid to address problems involving exterior thermal insulation materials and fire-fighting equipment in high-rise buildings.
Fire departments are drafting a regulation for fire safety management in high-rise buildings.
BEIJING, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- Technological improvement will contribute more to China's economic growth this year, a senior official said Saturday.
Wang Zhigang Wholesale Baltimore Orioles Jerseys , vice minister of Science and Technology, estimated the contribution would rise to 57.5 percent in 2017, up from 56.2 percent last year, at a forum.
Wang cited breakthroughs in transformation of scientific achievements including high-speed rail, UHV power transmission, hybrid rice, satellite navigation Wholesale Atlanta Braves Jerseys , and electric cars. "We can grow rice in seawater with lower density...and Huawei's polar coding has become part of international 5G standards."
China has become the world's second largest investor in R&D, with 1.57 trillion yuan (nearly 240 billion U.S. dollars) poured in the area last year, accounting for more than 20 percent of the world's total. Its R&D-to-GDP ratio was 2.11 percent, generally at the same level with that of European countries.
Wang said more efforts will be made in innovation, including employing technologies such as big data to upgrade traditional industries, increasing tax breaks to support tech firms, and stepping up protection of intellectual property rights.
UNITED NATIONS Wholesale Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys , Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- The special representative of the UN secretary-general for Iraq, Nickolay Mladenov, on Tuesday stressed the optimism he feels for the country's future, while tempering those hopes with fear over the many things that can go wrong and saying the most pressing goal for the Middle East nation remains defeating Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant ( ISIL).
""I am a paranoid optimist,"" Mladenov said in his final briefing as the UN Iraq envoy to the UN Security Council, noting the efforts made by the Iraqi political, community and religious leaders to save their country from terror. ""Today Wholesale Colorado Rockies Jerseys , more than ever, there is a growing understanding that the country can only move forward based on the principles of democracy, rule of law, respect for diversity and inclusivity.""
Even though the national unity government was set on addressing many long-standing concerns of the Iraqi people, Mladenov said that he remains ""paranoid.""
""So many things can go wrong,"" he said. ""ISIL remains in control of most of Iraq's western provinces, the fragile efforts towards unity and reconciliation need to be carefully nurtured if they are to bear fruit Cheap Washington Nationals Jerseys , while the economy has been hit by falling oil prices and skyrocketing security costs,"" he said.
Iraq is facing an insurgency by the jihadist group ISIL, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or the Islamic State (IS), which has forced thousands of people mainly from minority communities to flee their homes since late last year.
The group, whose fighters had seized vast swaths of territory in northern Iraq since June 2014 and announced the establishment of a caliphate in areas under its control in Syria and Iraq, has released videos showing beheadings of people including two American journalists and a British aid worker.
Mladenov also touched upon the Iraqi government's ""important steps"" on political and institutional reform, economic and social reconstruction and national reconciliation Cheap Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys , as well as its efforts to engage countries in the region.
""Iraq's most pressing goal remains to win back territory taken by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, ISIL,"" he said. ""The authorities have pledged to provide military and financial assistance to local leaders and tribal fighters to aid their struggle against ISIL.""
Moving forward would require expansion of the process of inclusion into the political sphere, as an exclusively military solution to the problem would be both impossible and counterproductive, he said.
""ISIL flourishes when Iraq is weak,"" he said. ""Iraq is weak when it is divided by sectarian politics, when political patronage overtakes national loyalty.""
Mladenov said many risks remained despite positive steps taken. He pointed to the toll taken by armed conflict and acts of terrorism Cheap Texas Rangers Jerseys , with more than 12,000 civilians killed in 2014 and 23, 000 others injured.
""Almost daily terrorist attacks continue to deliberately target all Iraqis, most notably the Shi'ite community, as well as ethnic and religious minorities across the country,"" he said, decrying ISIL's violations and abuses as ""gruesome"" and stressing the "" serious threat"" they posed to the country's cohesion Cheap Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys , with increasing reports of revenge attacks, and the marring of recent military gains by claims that militias have killed unarmed civilians.
The country was challenged also by fiscal constraints and UNAMI was working actively with the authorities to set up a Recovery and Reconstruction fund, while the challenge posed by supporting internally displaced persons was also huge.
According to him, 5.2 million people need h.
