BEIJING - An official with the State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) Monday warned against security loopholes at many heritage sites and vowed to enhance law enforcement.
In 2003, under the firm leadership of the Party and the government, the Chinese people, united as one, won a decisive victory in their combat against the severe acute respiratory syndrome pandemic. Learning a lesson from this experience, the government took comprehensive measures to improve public health services, and the prevention and control of serious diseases. Marked progress was made in the prevention and control system for serious diseases, in the response mechanism for public health emergencies, in the development of community healthcare services in rural and urban areas, and in the new-type rural cooperative medical care and basic medical insurance for urban residents.
According to its strategic plan to build itself into a world-class university, the NPU will build Taicang Campus into an international campus combining talent cultivation, scientific research, community service and cultural inheritance and innovation together.
"The change in the last 50 years has been astonishing," he said. "I fell in love with the place ... when my wife (Alyce) and I went to Beijing as 'foreign experts' to teach at what was then called the Beijing Foreign Languages Institute. It is now called the Beijing Foreign Studies University, and I still love the place."
He noted that the past year had seen some "outrageous" claims made against China, and the media had been "poisonous".
The office will incorporate part of functions of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, and the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, to solve problems including separated administration and overlapping enforcement.
