Growing economic dynamism will also serve as an impo

portant stabilizing factor, he said. China’s research and development spending ranks se

cond in the world, accounting for around 2.18 percent of its GDP, while emerging strategic industries, the

es of rapid development in the era of reform and opening-up will also help shore up economic growth, he said.

He added that China also has enormous resilience, potential and flexibility in developm

ent, deep experience in macroeconomic regulation and ample space for policy adjustments.

That China has produced some excellent films, including the Red Sorghum, Farewell My Concubine and The Wan

nister, said on Tuesday that Islamic extremists staged the attacks in

Sri Lanka in retaliation to the shootings in two New Zealand mosques in March that claimed 50 lives.

And the blasts lay bare several threats confronting the whole world. First

Sri Lanka had enjoyed relative peace after the Liberation Tige

rs of Tamil Eelam, a militant organization demandin

g a separate homeland for Tamils in northeastern Sri Lanka, was defeated in 2009.

mber of people that have returned to their countries after atten

ding IS training camps. Yet the lack of coordination mechanisms among countries seemin
