It aims to increase the share of gas in its energy mix to

percent of the nation’s primary energy demand by 2020, according to the commission.

“Demand for gas has surged in China in recent years, which has posed a pot

ential threat to the country’s energy security. Underground gas storage, on the other hand, could w

ell meet the peak for gas consumption and is a necessary part of the natural gas industrial chain,” he said.

“Sufficient storage facilities and competent peak load regulation capacity is necessary for a stable supply of natural gas.”

According to Zhang, major gas consumers around the world have set up gas storage sy

stems, with gas in storage contributing more than 10 percent of annual gas consumption.

Bloomberg Intelligence estimated earlier that nationwide gas storage will rise to 4.1 percent of demand in 2020, compared with 2.8 percent in 2015.

The approach — particularly the threats of re-election reperc

  ussions — stemmed defections from several Republicans up for re

-election in 2020, but ultimately failed to stop the Senate from passing the resolution.

  Trump tweeted about the political advantage he expects those who supported him will receive.

  ”I’d like to thank all of the Great Republican Senators who bravely voted for Strong Bo

rder Security and the WALL. This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Cou

ntry. Watch, when you get back to your State, they will LOVE you more than ever before!” Trump tweeted Friday.

  Trump’s veto sends the resolution back to the US House of Re

presentatives, which is expected to pick it up after the week-long congressional recess. The Hous

e is not expected to have the two-thirds of the chamber’s support needed to override the President’s veto.

However, in a social media post just before the attack, an acco

  unt that is believed to belong to one of the attackers posted a link to an 87-page manifesto that

was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack. The manifesto was not signed.

  In addition, police are aware of a video shared online and broadcast live during the at

tack, which purports to show a gunman walking into an unnamed mosque and opening fire.

  ”We would strongly urge that the (video) link not be shared. We are working to have any footage removed,” the New Zealand police said.

  In a statement, a spokesperson for Facebook New Zealand, Mia Garlick, said videos that appeared to show the Christchurch shootings were quickly taken down.

  ”New Zealand Police alerted us to a video on Facebook shortly after the livestream co

  dual responsibility of offering suggestions and building consensus, and shoulder its political responsibilities of impleme

nting the CPC Central Committee’s decisions and plans, of meeting its requirements for CPPCC wo、

rk, and of pooling the wisdom and strength of all Chinese people, at home and overseas, for national rejuvenation, it says.

He asked all military personnel to understand the significa

nce and urgency of the plan’s realization and spare no effort to turn its goals into reality.

Xi ordered the military to focus on improving its comb

at readiness and capability. It should also deepen its reform, foster innovation and present new

The young soldiers in the new era are passionate, ambit

itious, and knowledgeable, with many holding a bachelor’s or master’s degree, he said.

The young people enlisted in recent years are, in general, well-rounded, he

said. In 2018, university graduates accounted for 60 percent of the intake, he added.

They are also more skilled and qualified with more qualifications, including academic degr

ees, vocational skills certificates and other awards for participating in various competitions, he said.

In addition, he said, their willingness to serve the countr

y is growing increasingly intense and the generation born after 2000 are a major force.

“They are cheerful, aspirational and energetic. Talking with them you will feel that they have an

urgent desire to thrive in the military and contribute to making our country and military stronger,” he said.

More countries ban Boeing 737 MAX planes after Ethiopian

  Numerous aviation authorities and countries moved to ground Boeing 737 MAX planes on Tuesday, following Sunday’s fatal plane crash in Ethiopia.

  Turkey and Holland were the latest to join other countries in introducing temporary suspen

sions for the aircraft, after Germany, Iceland, France and the UK took similar measures in quick succession.

  Earlier on Tuesday, aviation authorities in Singapore, Australia, Malaysia and Oman suspended Boeing 737 MAX services after Sunday’s MAX 8 flight fr

om Addis Ababa to Nairobi reported technical problems a

nd asked for permission to turn back, before crashing into a field six minutes after ta

keoff, killing all 157 people on board. Investigations are taking place into the cause of the crash.

  This is the second time in less than six months that this model has crashed soon after taking

off. A new Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 flight went down over the Java Sea off Indonesia last October, killing 189 people.

  The UK, Oman, Singapore, Australia, Ireland, France and Norwegian Airlines have suspended the whole Boeing 737 MAX range.

hina, Indonesia, Malaysia, Iceland, Germany and the air

  rlines TUI Airways, GOL Linhas Aereas, Aeromexico, Aerolíneas Argentinas, Cayman Airways, Comair Airways, Eastar Jet, Jet Airways, Mon

golian Airlines, China Airlines, China Eastern, China Southern, Lion Air and Silkair have suspended the MAX 8 model.

  Turkey and Poland have suspended the 737 MAX 8 and 9.

  These airlines are still flying 737 MAX planes: American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Fiji Airways, Icelandair, Flydubai, Spicejet and WestJet.

  Two crashes, 6 months: What to know about the Boeing 737 MAX 01:54

  Those decisions on Tuesday followed the lead of China’s aviation administration, who on Monday ordered that all

domestic Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets be out of the air by 6 p.m. local time, due to its principle of “zero tolerance for safety hazards.”

  China has one of the world’s largest fleets of Boeing 737 MAX 8, operating 97 of the planes, according to Chinese state-run media.

  The fallout has appeared to affect Boeing’s bottom line. The aircraft maker’s stock dropped 8% Monday, with investors voicing concerns about the 737 and B

oeing’s future in China, predicted to soon become the world’s first trillion-dollar market for jets.

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.
