|US Senator Max Baucus Heren Nike Air Max 97 Ultra Zwart Wit Schoenen Kopen , the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee who has a track record in tackling trade issues with China, was reportedly to be nominated by President Barack Obama as the next ambassador to Beijing to succeed Gary Locke.
The White House and Baucus, a Montana Democrat, declined on Wednesday to comment on the pick, but the ranking Senate member Orrin G. Hatch and several Senate aides and Baucus allies confirmed the information, The Washington Post reported.
China has noticed the report and looks forward to working with a new US envoy to China to keep continued, sound and steady development of the Sino-US relationship Air Max 97 Ultra Zwart Heren Nike Kopen , foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Thursday.
Locke, who has occupied the post as the first Chinese American ambassador to Beijing since 2011, said in late November that he will step down early next year for personal reasons.
The US ambassadors to China usually fall into three categories, namely professional diplomats, politicians and officials who are close to the US president, Ni Feng, a deputy director with the Institute of American Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Air Max 97 Wit Heren Nike Schoenen Kopen , told the Global Times.
"But given the increasing importance of bilateral relations, US ambassadors have mostly been picked from the last two groups in recent years," Ni added.
Chairing the powerful Senate Finance Committee that oversees tax and trade policy, Baucus, 72, was first elected to the Senate in 1978 and has helped craft Obama's landmark healthcare bill.
"An ideal nominee for US ambassador in Beijing should know about China, understand the big picture of the bilateral relationship and meanwhile have a close relationship with top US officials to ensure his opinions are smoothly communicated Heren Nike Air Max 97 OG GS Zwart Schoenen Kopen ," Xin Qiang, a professor with the Center for American Studies at Fudan University, told the Global Times on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the envoy must be able to establish a sound relationship with the Chinese leadership and build a good public image, Ni added.
Obama's choice of Baucus must be confirmed by the Senate. The chamber is not expected to consider the nomination until early next year.
Baucus has lots of experience on China issues. In the 1990s he led the effort to admit China into the World Trade Organization in 2001. He has visited China eight times and has also hosted Chinese trade delegations in Washington and Montana.
However, Baucus has also urged both Democratic and Republican administrations to take a harder line against China's trade practices, according to the AP.
He and three other influential members of Congress wrote to Obama in last July Nike Schoenen Air Max 97 Zwart Heren Kopen , urging he press China to halt violations of intellectual property and to prevent practices that discriminate against US companies.
Whether Baucus is a hard-liner to China does not make a big difference in bilateral relations, Xin said.
"Baucus understands well the significance of the Sino-US relations and if appointed, his abundant experience in trade would make him well versed in advancing economic and trade ties between China and the US, which stand at a critical stage," Xin said.
The outgoing Locke has attracted widespread attention in China with his Chinese-American background and his everyman image, which was in sheer contrast to some Chinese officials.
Locke was photographed carrying his own backpack and ordering his own coffee at an airport on his way to assume the envoy post two years ago, triggering a wave of public attention on the Internet.
BEIJING Nike Air Max 97 Summit Wit Schoenen Kopen , Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Chinese cities had "good" air quality on nearly 90 percent of days in August, a slight year-on-year drop, but the level of key pollutants PM2.5 and PM10 has declined significantly, official data showed Tuesday.
The 338 cities monitored by the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) reported good or excellent air quality on 89.3 percent of August days, down 0.9 percentage points from August 2016, according to Liu Zhiquan, head of environmental monitoring at the MEP.
During the same period Nike Air Max 97 OG Undefeated Groen Oranje Kopen , the density of PM2.5 nationwide dropped 14.3 percent from a year ago, and the density of PM10 9.6 percent.
Beijing had more "good air" days last month as PM2.5 density fell 19.1 percent year on year.
However, air quality worsened in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area. PM2.5 in 13 cities rose 5.4 percent in August, while PM10 increased 9.5 percent.
To improve air quality in the upcoming autumn and winter, the MEP began a new round of on-site environmental inspections earlier this month in cities around the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
The government has encouraged use of cleaner fuel for heating in north China, where coal burning in winter is a major source of pollution.
In Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and nearby areas, 28 cities will now use only natural gas Nike Air Max 97 OG Undefeated Rood Wit Kopen , electricity and renewable energy for heating.
BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- China has put 103.3 million hectares of farmland under permanent protection, stating that the areas should not be used for non-farming purposes.
Some 2,887 counties nationwide had been tasked to define specific land plots for government permanent protection, according to the Ministry of Land and Resources (MLR).
The acreage was very slightly larger than target set in the country's land use plan for 2006-2020.
Through the demarcation, the government is seeking to prevent farmland from being used for non-farming purposes such as construction and property development, as this could threaten the country's food security.
At the end of 2016 Nike Air Max Classic BW Dames Kopen , China had a total of about 135 million hectares of farmland, about 76,900 hectares less than 2015 levels.
China must retain at least 124.3 million hectares of farmland in 2020, under a new target set by the MLR in 2016, which is above a government red line of 120 .
