China's top economic regulator will continue to promote the implementation of a package of policies to stabilize the economy, further expedite the financing of projects via policy-based and developmental financial instruments, accelerate infrastructure projects, and proactively expand effective investment, said an official from the National Development and Reform Commission.


"We have noticed that economic stabilization is speeding up in major economically developed provinces. Industrial growth drivers and investing confidence will continue to increase as the implementation of economic stabilization policies accelerate, and a series of measures, including the launch of a relending facility to support equipment upgrades, will achieve the desired effect in the fourth quarter," said Meng Wei, a spokeswoman for NDRC, at a news conference.


"Recently, China announced measures to optimize COVID-19 responses and guide local governments to put into practice anti-pandemic measures in a more scientific and targeted way. This is conducive to further promoting unimpeded flows in the economy and market demand recovery. As for the outlook for the whole year, China's economic growth is likely to accelerate further, and the foundations of the stabilizing and improving economy will be consolidated," Meng said.


Considering that the current international environment is still complicated and the COVID-19 prevention situation is still severe, China must make strenuous efforts to promote a continuous economic recovery in the fourth quarter, she said.

>Climate activists pour slime on mummy at Spanish museum

Climate activists with the Spanish group Futuro Vegetal targeted a replica mummy at the Egyptian Museum in Barcelona this weekend to protest the climate conference, COP27, which is taking place in Egypt.
本周末(11月13日),来自西班牙活动组织“未来植物”(Futuro Vegetal)的气候活动家破坏了巴塞罗那埃及博物馆的木乃伊复制品陈列柜,以此抗议正在埃及召开的《联合国气候变化框架公约》第二十七次缔约方大会(COP27)。

Two people doused a display case with red and brown goo from Coca-Cola bottles, also splattering framed images on surrounding walls.

The liquid was thought to be syrup and beetroot juice.

They then glued their hands beside a nearby exhibit and held up a modified Coca-Cola banner scrawled with the words "climate justice".
二人随后将手黏上展品橱窗,并举起可口可乐的横幅,上面写着“climate justice”(气候正义)两个词。

The US drinks giant was one of the official sponsors of the UN's COP27 climate summit in Egypt, a position widely denounced by environmentalists who say the company is behind much of the world's plastic pollution.

The Futuro Vegetal activists said their latest ploy was to "highlight the emergency" the world is facing.

"Currently 99 percent of the world's plastic is produced from fossil fuels," the group said.

"We find it hard to believe the global leader in plastic pollution is not going to use its influence as a sponsor of COP27 to advance its commercial interests given its total dependence on fossil fuels."

Recently, more than 90 museum leaders signed a letter decrying the actions of the eco-activists, saying that the protesters “severely underestimate the fragility” of the art works they are targeting.

"As museum directors entrusted with the care of these works, we have been deeply shaken by their risky endangerment." "We will continue to advocate for direct access to our cultural heritage. And we will maintain the museum as a free space for social communication."
声明中写道:“作为委以保护艺术品重任的博物馆馆长,我们对这些危险行为表示震惊。” “我们将继续倡导人们能够近距离鉴赏到这些文化遗产。同时,我们将坚持让博物馆成为一个社会交流的自由空间。”

However, thus far, none of the paintings or works that have been targeted have been harmed.
