2018 “Belt and Road” Nordic Spring Peace and Culture Festival held on Stockholm Cultural Night

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

STOCKHOLM, April. 21(Greenpost) – 2018 Belt and Road Nordic Spring Peace and Cultural Festival and Li Li’s Chinese Paintings Exhibition  have been successfully held as a part of Stockholm Cultural Night which was a cooperation with over 100 museums, galleries, opera houses and other cultural locations to open free to the public from 18:00-24:00 on April 21.

The festival was held by China-Europe Cultural Association, Professional Foreign journalist Association or PROFOCA in cooperation with Chinese Teachers Association in Sweden.

Chinese Ambassador to Sweden Gui Congyou spoke highly about the festival.

“The opening of the Stockholm Cultural Night and Belt and Road International Peace and Cultural Festival is of great significance in such a period of time. China and Sweden have enjoyed  very good relations and the bilateral relations are on a new historical starting point with great potential to tap. With Chinese style in  Stockholm Cultural Night, it will make the night even more beautiful and be conducive to Sino-Swedish relations. ” said Ambassador Gui.

“China proposes Belt and Road initiative based on the principle of discussing together, jointly building and sharing the result to improve relations with various countries and  expand cooperation with various countries. People to people relation is one of the five parts of belt and road initiative and cultural exchange is an important way to communicate with each other. ”  he said.

“I understand that tonight there will be a big banquet of culture including instrument performance, dancing and singing, and Chinese woman artist Li Li’s painting and the Chinese film Romance on the Lushan Mountain, I hope you all have a good evening.  ” said Ambassador Gui.

China-Europe Cultural Association is a non-political , non-religious organization consisting 75% of Chinese women in Sweden aiming at enhancing Chinese culture and enrich their life in Sweden and serving as a bridge between China and Sweden.

Ambassador Gui said he also welcomed journalists from PROFOCA and other foreign friends to visit China. Over the past 40 years of reform and opening up, China has experienced great changes. Since the 18th Party’s Congress, China has entered a new era. Now China enjoys stable social and political environment and high quality economic development.  Nearly 1.3 billion people have shrugged off poverty and the rest 50 million will eradicate their poverty situation by 2020. In the International arena, China plays an important role in maintaining world peace, security and stability.  It is a main force for world harmony. I believe the journalists can find some good news from China.

Xuefei Chen Axelsson, President of China-Europe Cultural Association and PROFOCA explained why they held this event.

She said to be part of the Stockholm Cultural Night made her proud to be able to contribute to the cultural life in Stockholm with some Chinese flavour. This is also a sign that Sweden is open and international.

“We hold 2018 Belt and Road Nordic Spring Peace and Culture Festival in order to guard world peace.  Belt and Road Initiative proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping is not to impose Chinese influence by purpose, but treat it as a way to promote peace and development. Sweden was the destination of the maritime silk road taking the boat Gothenburg as an example. We like to promote cultural exchanges between China and Sweden and China and Europe. ” said Chen Axelsson.

“The third is to celebrate the exhibition of Beijing women artist Li Li. Although it is a small scale of 30 small pieces of paintings, it is profound and a real action of bilateral cultural exchange. ” she said.

As a journalist herself, Chen Axelsson said while China insists on peace and development, some other parts of the world are not very peaceful. She held that violence and conflict are the biggest enemy of sustainable development. We condemn all kinds of violence.  Violence and conflict are a result of illiteracy. Belt and Road initiative aims to avoid violence and conflict. Through peace and development, people’s living standards can be improved. Without peace, there will be no development. We must value the peaceful environment. We believe that cultural exchange is conducive to understanding between different people and countries, and further avoid conflict and maintain world peace and stability.

Last year, we held the first Nordic Spring International Cultural Festival, we also held other cultural activities such as holding lectures and listening to Chinese actor Pu Chunxin’s presentation held in Chinese Cultural Center . By learning Chinese culture, we feel more peaceful and life is more joyful.  By going to China and reporting the Party Congress, I saw China’s peaceful transition to a new era aiming at wiping out poverty completely and building a modern Chinese society. We shall continue to work hard to serve the members and contribute to Sino-Swedish good relations.

Historiskt trendbrott: Kina större exportmarknad än USA för företag i Stockholm

För första gången är exporten från Stockholms län till Kina större än till USA.

Det visar en ny analys från Stockholms Handelskammare.

– Kinas starka tillväxt har bidragit till att man nu gått om USA som Stockholms viktigaste exportmarknad. Paradoxalt nog kan Donald Trumps tullar göra så att USA försvagas ytterligare då dessa kommer göra Kina än mer intressant. Det är bra när Sverige och Stockholm handlar med Kina men vi skulle tjäna på att fördjupa den transatlantiska relationen. Därför bör Trump lägga ned sina tullar och Sverige borde driva på för att EU fortsätter samtalen om ett frihandelsavtal med USA, Andreas Hatzigeorgiou, chefsekonom på Stockholms Handelskammare.

Analysen, som bygger på statistik från SCB, visar att företag från Stockholms län i allt högre grad exporterar till Kina. Detta samtidigt som exporten till USA minskat över tid.

År 2007 värderades Stockholms varuexport till Kina endast till omkring fyra miljarder kronor samtidigt som varuexporten till USA hade ett värde på 26 miljarder.

Tio år senare uppgår varuexporten från Stockholm till Kina till omkring 16 miljarder, vilket är cirka en miljard kronor mer än varuexporten till USA.

– För Sverige är Kina fortfarande en mindre marknad än USA, men förändringen vi ser i Stockholm under de senaste åren är exceptionell. Det kan mycket väl vara en fingervisning om framtiden, för Stockholm går inte sällan i första ledet för förändringar. Om Donald Trumps tullar leder till en eskalerande handelskonflikt skulle jag inte bli chockad om Kina går om USA som Sveriges viktigaste exportmarknad utanför Europa, säger Andreas Hatzigeorgiou.

Handelskrig skulle skada världsekonomin. Samtidigt finns vissa möjligheter för svenska företag.

– Donald Trump har undantagit svenska och europeiska företag från sina tullar. Det innebär att vår konkurrenssituation i USA faktiskt på marginalen kan förbättras. Dessutom innebär Kinas motåtgärder mot USA drabbar amerikanska företag, vilket i sin tur kan gynna våra svenska företags kamp om kontrakt i Kina. Världen behöver med frihandel, men om nu världens stormakter vill införa tullar måste Sverige se till att utnyttja situationen till vår fördel, säger Andreas Hatzigeorgiou.

两会时评:关闭小煤窑到底对不对?

北欧绿色邮报网两会时评  评论员陈雪霏

2018年两会期间,环保部长李干杰说,坚决反对一刀切,但是该关的还得关。为什么要主张关闭小煤窑呢?

主要是前期粗放型发展,全国小煤窑遍地开花,不管有没有资质,有没有环保措施,或者安全措施,很多私人企业因为关系就都上了。因此,导致中国的煤电资源供大于求,价格非常低。这对个别老板是好事,对于就业也是好事,因为人人都有事干,人人都赚钱。但这样干的负面影响是,一有安全事故时常出现。二是对环境有破坏作用。中国北方长期雾霾不散,甚至出现沙尘暴,为什么?主要是破土路面太多。

记者曾经看到过一部电影叫《悲兮魔兽》,那就是表现的土壤植被受到严重破坏,大面积土地都暴露出来。真的是对环境很不好。

很多这样的企业当初本来可能就不应该批准,因此,现在需要关闭。这实际上是地方政府的失职。但是,当初是为了抓经济增长,这也是可以理解的。现在,为了环境进行整治,也是可以理解的。

只是,在这个过程中,注意方式方法,注意依法办事。否则也会产生社会矛盾。地方官员也要深入考察,对于那些可以改进的企业,或者说管理好的,可以帮助他们增加环保措施,或者说敦促他们增加安全环保措施。这样,可以实现可持续发展。如果真是污染的企业,高耗能的企业,实际上,迟早都可能被迫退出市场。

所以,我认为关闭小煤窑是对的。中国北方的空气水和土壤都面临严峻挑战。但同时,对于下岗或失业的人,政府还是应该想办法给他们以帮助。或者是为再就业提供适当的培训。这也是西方国家转型时期采取的必要措施。

下面是有关问题更多的报道,敬请关注。

连续两年的中央环保督察,前三批中央环保督察问责10426人,第四批督察的8个省份已全部进驻,实现31个省(区、市)全覆盖。目前,全国范围内自然保护区矿权清退工作在稳步进行中。此外对涉污生产矿山的整改,环保督查已经初显成效,但也遇到了一些问题和争议,其中“一刀切”问题最为突出。有些地方在环保督察检查执法过程中出现“一刀切”等问题,使不少非污染企业也被迫关停。整改中存在认识不到位、方法简单片面、措施不细不实等问题,引发各方关注。

但在8月22日的环保部新闻发布会上,环保部政策法规司司长别涛明确表明了态度。

反对平时不作为、检查时滥作为

别涛在环保部8月份例行新闻发布会上表示,我们从来没有要求环保部门“一刀切”。相反,环保部有两个态度是明确的:

一个是反对部分地方,在平时疏于监管,使违法企业长期存在,污染环境。这种现象环保部是坚决反对的,因为它表现为不作为;

第二个反对部分地方,平时不作为,到了环保督察检查巡查的时候,采取简单、粗暴的方法,片面处理发展与环保的关系,这是严重的不负责任,也是滥作为。我们反对平时不作为,也反对检查时的滥作为。

别涛表示,环境监管执法应该有的三个原则或是立场:

第一对违法企业应该坚持零容忍,严格执法,公平执法。

第二对环保守法企业,应该公正对待,依法保护合法经营权。

第三是对违法的企业,从依法行政的角度,我们也要遵守法律规定的条件、程序,分类管理、合理引导、依法合理行政。

地方政府叫停环保“一刀切”

环保问题整改“一刀切”问题近期也引起了地方政府重视。

四川成都市发布《关于扎实做好环境保护督察问题整改的紧急通知》,叫停环保问题整改“一刀切”,要求对涉污企业分类处理,相关部门在开展环境保护工作中,既不能矫枉过正,也不能以偏概全;既要回应部分群众合理环保诉求,更要兼顾广大群众正常生产生活,决不能简单一关了之。

山东就整改问题下发通知,要求各市党委和人民政府要坚决杜绝“闯关”思想、应付心理,绝不允许以临时性关停等方式敷衍环保督察;对环保不作为、乱作为者坚决严肃问责,对违法者坚决依法打击;要针对不同的污染企业分类处置,科学有序抓好问题整改,不能简单一关了之、一拆了之。

山东潍坊、淄博和济宁等多地出台文件,叫停环保问题,整改一刀切。

媒体看法不一

环保整治究竟该不该“一刀切”,社会各界对此众说纷纭。前段时间,新华社和法制日报两大官媒就“一刀切”问题进行互怼。

新华社方认为环保管控不能一刀切,在《环保管控不能”一刀切”》(新华社记者 顾立林)一文中提到,环保管控要精准施策,营造良好的管控导向。对不同企业要不同对待,要有奖优罚劣的具体措施,防止出现“失责者宽,尽责者严”的逆向淘汰。

《法制日报》记者曾多次参与环保部组织的现场督查,部分企业不仅“散乱污”现象严重,而且督查组一走就开始继续违规生产。竺效(法学博士)认为,对这样的违法违规企业就该一刀切,该停产的停产,该治理的治理。以往就是因为没有采取一刀切的做法,致使一些违法违规企业总能找到各种借口逃避处罚,逃避监管。

环保整治力度只增不减

事实上,新一轮的环保督察比往年都要严格。尤其是刚刚结束的第三批中央环保督察工作,在反馈会上直接点名怒批省(市)级领导层的现象实属罕见。天津两名副区长更是直接被免职,说明环保督查问责力度也在持续加大。

近日,环保部长李干杰发声:各级环保部门要严格执法监管,加大对企事业单位违法行为的打击力度,让环保执法“硬”起来。

据环保部明确通报,截止六月底,京津冀及周边地区28个城市已经核查出散乱污企业17.6万家,对无法升级改造达标排放的企业,今年九月底前将一律关闭。这些涉污企业,在短短几个月内如果未按要求完成整改,将面临被“一刀切”关停的风险。

从8月18日在京召开的环境保护部党组会议获悉,近日,环保部已经开始部署环保“回头看”方案。已经检查过的企业不要高兴太早,环保部门很可能杀个“回马枪”,持续监督。

民营矿企在夹缝中生存

伴随国内经济转型升级,以及国家各项政策的实施,民营矿企的日子越来越不好过。

1、去产能。近年来,民间投资增速持续下滑,不只是市场在起作用,或许还有去产能因素的影响。以钢铁行业为例,很多地方被去产能的主力是民营企业。2016年,河北省有97%的去产能任务是由民企完成的。

2、自然保护区。为有效修复自然保护区内生态环境,国土资源部发布了《自然保护区内矿业权清理工作方案》,目前全国各省市区自然保护区内工矿企业正全面有序退出,矿业权人在退出自然保护区的过程中需对矿区进行生态补偿。

3、《环境保护税法》。《环境保护税法》实施在即,其对四大类污染物的征税做了明确规定,部分矿企税负将明显增加。在环保税征收的影响下,矿山企业的生产成本、开采生产模式、竞争格局也都将产生重大变化。

中国经济要发展,最终还得靠中小企业。然而成本上涨的压力、行业形势的严峻等问题都可能给民营矿企带来经营恶化的风险。

当然,正如别涛所说,对那些拖延消极、拒不整改、一味违规投产的“散乱污”企业,应该坚持零容忍,法律法规也有相应的处罚规定。这些“散乱污”的企业环保成本基本等于零,这对守法企业的市场竞争是不公平的。

但对于正规企业应适时引导、循序渐进,着眼建立问题整改的长效机制,拿出创新性举措,不应急于求成。在环保问题上的“一刀切”,对这些矿企而言无疑是雪上加霜。

民企求生不易,但求刀下留情。

Analysis: Trump and Chinese farmers

By Xuefei Chen Axelsson

US President Donald Trump recently announced that he has endorsed the order to increase tariff for imported steel and aluminium. As a result, a lot of Chinese products that are exported to the US will face a higher tariff.

Chinese Ministry of Commerce immediately responded that China will increase its tariff against the America grain exported China.

Why was China responding so quickly? Because China has imported American grain or corn at a so low price that it affected the Chinese farmers’ interest. Why?

Because Chinese farmers earned more money before China imported American grain.  My brother Shemin whose name means a member of the socialist commune is a farmer.  He was both happy and sad when I talked with him over the phone.  He was happy to tell me that he harvested 40 tons of corn marking the highest production over the years.  But he was not very happy when talking about how much he earned.

He said that he earned just about 60 thousand yuan or 10 thousand dollars for the whole year. Compared with a couple of years ago,  when the price of the corn was at one yuan or 1.2 yuan, he could have earned 80 thousand yuan with the current harvest amount.  But now the price was only 70 percent of the previous one.  although the productivity increased, the profit decreased.

Why? Because Chinese government said the market is deciding the price and China is open to allow import of grain from America.  Those pig raising entrepreneurs or farmers spend large amount of dollars imported grains from America with much lower prices.  So the American cheap grain actually make the Chinese small farmers lower their income.

This will be very bad for Chinese agriculture because then the Chinese farmers or peasants will leave their land and go to the city to find jobs to earn a salary instead of labouring in the farms with so low income.  In the long run, the peasants are forced to be out of their land and larger contractors will come to the countryside to contract the land, then the monopoly of the larger business people will have right to decide the price and the price will be getting higher, either due to the cost or due to the monopoly. But then the ones who complain will not only be farmers, but the urban citizens.

So far, Chinese government has get rid of agricultural tax and also give a little subsidies.  But that subsidies are so little compared with the French farmers’.  That is only 200 yuan per mu or 30 dollars per acre.  That is too little.

I hope the Chinese government should consider this issue and really care about farmers’ interest.
