It was also decided at the meeting to submit the dr

raft amendments to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, C

hina’s top legislature, for deliberation, according to a statement after the meeting.

Suggestions for revisions include adding the principle of “non-discrimination” in administrativ

e licensing, substantially raising the amount of compensation for infringing exclusive rights to use trade

marks, and cutting approval time for applications for qualified construction permits.

Last month, the National People’s Congress passed the foreign

investment law, a landmark legislation that will provide stronger protection and a better bus

rgency declaration, it will underline that he is pushing

  Still, presidential vetoes occur more often than you might think. Every president since Garfield has vetoed at least

one bill. The younger Bush was the first president since John Quincy Adams to go a full four years without a veto, acco

rding to the Congressional Research Service. The House, which was Republican-led for Bush’s entire first term,

was protecting him from bills he opposed. Barack Obama, similarly, had help on Capitol Hill for most of his pr

esidency, just as Trump has. But Obama did veto two bills even when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress.

  The President with the most vetoes was Democrat Roosevelt, wi

th 635, although he also served the longest in the White House (12 years). All those vetoes cam

e even though Roosevelt enjoyed Democratic majorities for his entire time in the White House.

  If you plot vetoes alongside how closely aligned Congress is

to the president, it used to be quite common for a president to veto bills from a House and Senate ali

gned with him. This data comes from The American Presidency Project at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Action plan created to improve water quality in Yangtze River

The Ministry of Ecology and Environment has drawn up an action plan to impro

ve the water quality of the Yangtze River over the next two years, it announced on Feb 28.

The ministry aims to finish the overhaul of sewage outlets and eliminate nearly all water below Gra

de V — the lowest quality grade in China’s five-tier system — near the river by 2020 under the action plan, whi

ch was released by the ministry and the National Development and Reform Commission on Feb 25.

Other goals include guaranteeing at least 1,000 metric tons of drinking water a day in the Yangtz

e River Economic Zones and suspending all large-scale construction activities that affect the river.

“It is hard to overhaul sewage outlets. Most of the time, we can’t tell

who is discharging or where the discharge takes place, because many enterprises are now shar

ing a single exit,” said Zhang Bo, director of the ministry’s department of water ecology and environment.

“To distinguish who is generating the pollution, we need to trace sour

ces, measure pollutants and renovate the outlets one by one. It’s a big job.”

But Myanmar still has some obstacles to deal with in order

attract foreign capital. The first is instability in the job market and relatively low labor efficiency. Particularly, the recent years have seen an increasing number of strikes and the failure of the g

overnment to ease industrial relations conflicts with effective measures has crippled investor confidence in the country. Some foreign ent

erprises even withdrew from Myanmar and shifted to neighboring countries, denting the image of the nation.

Second, Myanmar’s backward infrastructure may deter potential investors. A small nu

mber of power generation facilities and fragmented grids cannot ensure stable and sufficient po

wer supply. Access to electricity is limited to only 26 percent of the population, impeding Myanmar’s economic development.

Third, some Myanmese are prejudiced against foreign investment. Worrying that Myanmar’s eco

nomic and social interests may be impaired, they turned their backs on foreign investment. Demonstrators r

allied in Kachin State to demand the government permanently halt the Myitsone dam project, without giving any constructive suggestion on the fo

llow-up arrangements. It’s fair to say some movements against foreign-invested projects, driven by nationalism an

d so-called environmental concern, are of no help in improving the country’s investment environment, and have hijacked economic development. Re

specting the spirit of the contract is a basic requirement for modern states and their people. Myanmar State Councilor Aun

g San Suu Kyi recently said an administration shouldn’t terminate foreign-invested projects approved by its predecessor.
