Santarita said a similar concept can also be found in other

Asian countries, citing the Philippines’ compadrazgo and Indonesia’s bapakism as examples.

Compadrazgo, a Spanish word that literally translates to “co-fatherhood”, is based

on a kinship ritual that is formed after a child gets baptized into the Roman Catholic faith.

For the predominantly Catholic and close-knit Philippine society, t

he godfather (known as the padrino) is part of one’s extended family and is expected to he

lp and protect his godchild. The godchild is expected to respect and be loyal to the padrino.

Bapakism is derived from the Indonesian word for “father”. When us

ed in Indonesian business, bapakism demands great respect and obedience to one’s su

perior. The manager in his role as the company’s bapak is expected to look after and care for his employees.

Although Asian values are steeped in an ancient culture and tradition, it was only in t

he 1990s that this concept drew global attention. This was partly due to Asian leaders like the la

Bai Chunli, president of the academy, said in the conference’s opening ceremony on Saturday that areas along the Silk Road are

prone to various natural disasters that have resulted in massive loss of life and economic damage.

“As a result, it is paramount to use new technologies and international cooperation to jointly tackle these nat

The academy will continue to collaborate with foreign partners to create new platfor

Premier Li Keqiang urged government departments to speed up the implementation

of tax reductions to invigorate the country’s economy, amid rising uncertainties about growth on Friday.

Li was speaking with entrepreneurs from the manufacturi

ng, construction and service sectors at the Zhongnanhai leadership compound in Beijing.

The businesspeople said they have received benefits from the tax reduction measu

res in the past months, after the measures were introduced by Li in the Government Work Report in March. They

also offered advice on how to further ease the tax burden on businesses.

After hearing their opinions, Li called tax reduction a great decision made by the Communist Party of China Central Comm

ittee and the State Council. It has boosted market confidence in outstanding ways and promoted the stable

growth of the economy, he said, adding that the positive factors for economic growth are increasing.

The king is an old friend of the Chinese people and has been attending to and supp

orting the cause of friendship between the two countries for long, Xi said in the message.

“I attach great importance to the development of China-Thailand rel

ations and stand ready to make joint efforts with you to carry forward the traditional C

hina-Thailand friendship, deepen cooperation in building the Belt and Road jointly, and push forward the comp

rehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries to make bigger headway,” Xi said.

China and the US have been expediting their econo

ic and trade consultations, with a goal of implementing the consensuses President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump r

eached in December, said Xue Rongjiu, deputy director of the China Society for WTO Studies in Beijing.

China has made various moves recently to expand the new round of reform and opening-up — such as the approval of the Foreign Investm

ent Law in March and further facilitating trade connectivity under the Belt and Road Initiative. It will cont

inue opening its market in a proactive, steady and orderly manner, in accordance with its own development ne

eds and its own pace and timetable, to benefit Chinese and global consumers across the world, said Tu Xinquan, a pro

fessor of international trade at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

James Collins, CEO of Corteva Agriscience, the agricultural division of US-bas

ed DowDuPont, said he hopes the two countries will reach a positive resolution, to benefit both countries and the re

st of the world. Collins said his firm was “not so much affected” in the short term by China-US trade tensions.

The two countries should take the opportunity to join

intly build the Belt and Road, deepen mutual political trust and pragmatic cooperation and pr

omote the development of the China-Chile comprehensive strategic partnership to a higher level, Xi said.

The two countries should promote the upgrading of bilateral tra

de and investment and enhance cooperation in such areas as minerals, clean energy, infor

mation technology, e-commerce, innovation and scientific research on the Antarctic, he said.

Xi called on the two countries to make joint efforts to celebrate the 50th anni

versary of China-Chile diplomatic ties next year and promote people-to-people exchanges.

China supports Chile’s hosting of the United Nations climate change confere

nce and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation economic leaders’ meeting this year, Xi said.

yers do need their staff to work extra hours to meet pro

 deadlines or fulfill other tasks, they can ask them to work overtime – but not than 36 hours a month and only after consulti

ng and reaching an agreement with the labor union and the workers. More important, empl

oyers have to pay at least 1.5 times the usual salary to the employees for overtime work.

This is to protect the rights, interests and health of the workers.

Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group, has added fuel to the debate, by saying that empl

oyees who get the “opportunity” to work according the “996” schedule are the luc

ky ones, because in many companies employees don’t get the chance to work long hours.

But the fact is, if employers do not meet the two essential requiremen

ts to make employees work overtime – consulting wo

rkers and restricting the amount of extra work – and force the “996” schedule o

n their workers and make them work for more than 60 hours a week, they violate the Labor Law.

Plenkovic said CEE countries’ exports to China rose f

 fivefold in the past few years, which helps reduce trade disparities with developed

economies. He called on all CEE nations to take the opportunity to deepen economic and trade cooperation with China.

Zhong Shan, minister of commerce, said over 1,000 people participated, the most since the event started nine yea

rs ago. “It demonstrates the increasing confidence in the forum and cooperation with China at large,” he said.

In recent years, China’s trade with CEE nations has seen rapid growth. According to the Ministry

of Commerce, China’s imports from the countries have risen by 24.6 percent to $23 billion. Chinese compan

ies have invested over $10 billion in CEE nations, which in turn have injected more than $1.5 billion into China,

focusing on machinery, auto components, the chemical industry, financing and environmental protection.

After the forum, Li and Plenkovic attended an exhibition of Chin

a-CEEC education cooperation and a dialogue mechanism to boost cooperation among small an

d medium-sized enterprises from both sides. Before leaving for Beijing, Li also had separate

People-to-people contacts, as a non-ignorable compon

ent of the Belt and Road Initiative, are boosted by China and Azerbaijan

via linking people of the two countries in cultural exchange, education, human

itarian dialogue and tourism cooperation. China and Azerbaijan signed a memorandum of understanding to stim

ulate tourism between the two countries. “Data from 2018 shows 15,000 Chinese tourists visited Azerbaijan last year, w

hich is not enough of course, and we aim to do more to attract more visitors in the coming years,” Hajiyev said.

He also highlighted education exchanges between the two countries, as China has sent students to study language in Azerba

ijan and viceAs Azerbaijan has a favorable political and geographic location, the country aims to become a tran

sport hub connecting Europe and Asia under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative. “The point of the transp

ortation network is to integrate it with the original countries,” Hajiyev said, adding Azerbaijan has built a network of transp

ortation including seaports, airports, railways and land roads.-versa. “We are looking forward to increase the numb

er of (students) because we see they can play the role of a humanitarian bridge between our countries.”

However, Xi said the country still has a lot to do to mak

ke up for the environmental arrears of the past, and its lack of forest c

over and vulnerable ecology remain problems requiring substantial efforts to conquer.

He called on officials at different levels to lead the public in making unwavering efforts to continue with tree planting programs.

It is also important to act on the understanding that clear w

aters and lush mountains are invaluable assets, promote the high-quality development of forestati

on programs and continue to promote the development of forested cities and rural areas, he said.

He also called for greater efforts to improve the living environm

ent, develop the green economy and step up the management and protection of forests.

Environmental protection has long been a priority for Xi, who has called on several occasions for efforts to protect the natu

ral environment “the way we protect our eyes”, and cherish it “as we cherish our own lives”.
