>2020 Asian economy forecast
IMF下调亚洲经济预期
The International Monetary Fund on Wednesday revised down its 2020 forecast for the Asian economy to a contraction of 2.2 percent, calling it "the worst outcome for this region in living memory."
国际货币基金组织(IMF)10月21日下调今年亚洲区经济预测至负增长2.2%,称"这是有记忆以来亚太区面临的最糟糕的局面"。
The latest forecast is a downgrade compared with the projection of a 1.6 percent contraction in June.
今年6月IMF曾预测今年亚洲经济萎缩1.6%,最新预测值较这一数字又有所下调。
Australia will see a contraction of 4.2 percent in 2020, and Japan's economy will shrink by 5.3 percent. South Korea will contract by 1.9 percent, while New Zealand is expected to see a sharp contraction of 6.1 percent.
IMF称,2020年澳大利亚经济将萎缩4.2%,日本经济将萎缩5.3%,韩国经济将萎缩1.9%,而新西兰经济预计将急剧收缩6.1%。
India's economy experienced a much sharper than expected contraction in the second quarter, and is expected to recover slowly in the coming quarters, according to the report, which projected India's economy to contract by 10.3 percent this year.
报告称,印度经济在第二季度的收缩幅度比预期严重得多,有望在未来几个季度缓慢复苏,预计今年印度经济将萎缩10.3%。
China, which suffered from the COVID-19 pandemic's blow earlier than other countries, has seen a strong recovery after the first quarter lockdown, with growth revised up to 1.9 percent this year, "a rare positive figure in a sea of negatives," an IMF official noted.
国际货币基金组织官员指出,与其他国家相比,中国更早遭受新冠病毒疫情的打击,在经历了第一季度的封锁期后,中国经济出现强劲复苏,IMF将今年中国经济预期值上调为正增长1.9%,"这是在众多负增长中出现的罕见的正增长"。
The IMF expects the region to grow by 6.9 percent in 2021.
国际货币基金组织预计,2021年亚洲区经济将增长6.9%。

通知称,旅行企业必须坚持常态化疫情防控措施,不得为非常住外籍人士提供旅游服务,也不得经营出境团队游业务。
The ministry suspended domestic and overseas group tours by travel agencies on Jan 24 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

>Veterans granted medals
中央颁发抗美援朝纪念章
Chinese People's Volunteers army veterans who fought in the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea (1950-1953) have been granted memorial medals as China marks the 70th anniversary of the CPV army entering the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to join the war.

The medals were presented to living veterans and other personnel in the name of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, the State Council, and the Central Military Commission.

Bearing the image of a CPV soldier and featuring various elements including a dove and five-pointed stars, the medal symbolizes the fact the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea is a war of justice fought to safeguard peace and resist aggression, and the fact the great spirit demonstrated in the war will always be an invaluable wealth of the Chinese people. The medal also demonstrates China's firm determination and confidence in defying its enemies, safeguarding world peace, and building a community with a shared future for humanity.
纪念章核心部分为志愿军战士形象,采用和平鸽和五星等元素,寓意伟大的抗美援朝战争是保卫和平、反抗侵略的正义之战,伟大的抗美援朝精神永远是中国人民的宝贵财富,彰显了我国不畏强敌、维护世界和平、构建人类命运共同体的坚定决心和信心。
