China’s overall debt-to-GDP ratio had dropped to 249.4 percent

by the end of 2018, 1.5 percentage points lower than a year earlier, according to the PBOC.

If trade tensions escalate further, more opening-up policies in the sectors of medical

care and education will help boost global investors’ confidence in the Chinese economy, Zhang added.

By hiking the tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods from 10 percent t

o 25 percent just when it seemed the China-US trade talks would achieve a bre

concessions, apparently ignorant to the fac

t that China is not what it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s when the country was forced into signing humil

iating treaties, which resulted in the opening of trading ports and paying of indemnities to Western powers.

Perhaps the blame for the breakdown in the talks should be laid at the door of the mind-set o

Health authorities will redouble their efforts to train nurses in eldercare as the proportion of older people in the pop

ulation expands and tens of millions of people struggle with disabilities, a senior health official said on Wednesday.

Jiao Yahui, deputy chief of medical administration and supervision at the National He

A regulation on the training of healthcare workers and standards of service is being drafted. It i

The nurse’s aides will complement the work of full-fledged nurses to meet the demand for services for the elderly, she said.

The number of registered nurses in China topped 4 million as of the end of last year. Nearly 70 perc

ent held a junior college degree or above, accounting for almost half of all healthcare professionals, she said.
