Two Chinese mega-cities, Hangzhou in East China's Zhejiang Province and Xi'an in Northwest China's Shaanxi Province, said on Thursday they would lift all home purchase restrictions to shore up the local real estate market and boost market confidence. It follows similar moves recently in other big cities like Chengdu, Shenzhen and Beijing.

5月9日,中国两座特大城市杭州和西安取消限购,以支撑当地房地产市场,提振市场信心。此前,成都、深圳和北京等大城市也采取了类似举措。


As of Thursday, a total of 35 Chinese cities have relaxed restrictions on home purchases, while 24 have completely scrapped all curbs on residential property purchases. In addition, more than 160 cities have adopted home-buying loosening policies.

截至9日,中国共有35个城市放松了限购,24个城市全面取消限购。此外,160余个城市出台了购房宽松政策。


Chinese authorities have been ramping up measures to prop up the real estate sector recently. The most recent meeting of the Communist Party of China Central Committee Political Bureau on April 30 called for measures to support the property sector, saying that city-specific policies should be implemented, and that local governments, real estate enterprises and financial institutions must shoulder their share of responsibilities to ensure the delivery of housing projects and to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of homebuyers.

中国政府最近一直在加大力度提振房地产行业。中共中央政治局4月30日召开会议,呼吁采取措施支持房地产行业,继续坚持因城施策,压实地方政府、房地产企业、金融机构各方责任,切实做好保交房工作,保障购房人合法权益。


Combining the new changes in the relationship between supply and demand in the real estate market and people's aspirations for high-quality housing, it is imperative to conduct research on policies and measures to reduce housing inventory and improve the quality of new housing in a coordinated manner. New modes for the development of the real estate sector will be fostered to boost the sector's high-quality development.

同时,结合房地产市场供求关系的新变化、人民群众对优质住房的新期待,统筹研究消化存量房产和优化增量住房的政策措施。抓紧构建房地产发展新模式,促进房地产高质量发展。

A top Baidu public relations executive has reportedly departed the Chinese technology company after she drew public outcry over her comments that were seen as glorifying a culture of overwork.

据报道,中国科技公司百度一名公关高管因其一系列被认为美化加班文化的言论引发广泛争议而离职。


Baidu’s head of communications Qu Jing had implied in a series of videos that she was not concerned about her employees as she was “not their mom” and said she only cared about results. She also said that the relationship between her and her subordinates was purely an “employer-employee relationship.”

百度公关负责人璩静在其发布的多条视频中透露,不愿意考虑员工,因为“我不是你的妈妈”,并表示只关心结果。她还称和员工只是雇佣关系。


The backlash was swift, with many on social media platforms like Weibo saying Qu lacked empathy.

此言论一经发出,迅速引发热议,微博等社交媒体平台的许多网友都认为璩静缺乏同情心。


Chinese online media outlet 36Kr first reported late Thursday that Qu had left her position at Baidu, citing unnamed sources. Internal systems showed Qu is no longer with the firm, according to a Baidu employee who asked not to be named as they were not authorized to provide that information to media.

中国线上媒体平台36氪5月9日晚最先报道了璩静从百度离职的消息,但消息来源不明。据一名不愿透露姓名的百度员工称,百度内部系统显示璩静已经离开公司,但他们不允许向媒体提供这一信息。


Qu had earlier posted an apology Thursday on her private WeChat account, where she “sincerely apologized to all netizens” and clarified that she had not sought Baidu’s permission before posting the videos.

9日凌晨,璩静在朋友圈发文道歉,表示发布短视频之前,没有事先征求公司意见,因为短视频引起的风波跟广大网友诚恳道歉。

TikTok, an online video entertainment platform, and its Chinese parent company ByteDance on Tuesday filed a legal challenge against the U.S. government over a law forcing ByteDance to sell off the ultra-popular app or face a nationwide ban in the country.

在线视频娱乐平台TikTok及其中国母公司字节跳动7日提起法律诉讼,指控美国政府通过法案强迫字节跳动出售TikTok这款极受欢迎的应用程序,否则将在美国面临全国性禁令。


The law only gives ByteDance 270 days to sell TikTok to a non-Chinese buyer, with the possibility of a 90-day extension if the U.S. President determines it necessary.

该法案强迫字节跳动在270天内将TikTok出售给非中国买家,如果美国总统认为有必要,可有90天的出售延长期。


"But in reality, there is no choice," said TikTok, noting that the "qualified divestiture" demanded by the Act to allow TikTok to continue operating in the United States is simply not possible: not commercially, not technologically, not legally.

“但实际上,别无选择,”TikTok指出,法案要求的“合格剥离”以便TikTok继续在美国运营是根本不可能的,从商业、技术和法律层面来看都是不切实际的。


The TikTok ban, citing unfounded national security concerns due to its Chinese ownership, has drawn widespread criticism from various quarters both within and outside the United States, with people questioning the motivations behind Washington's suppression of the popular app, and raising concerns about constitutional rights and the principle of fair competition being violated.

TikTok禁令源于其中国所有权引发了所谓的国家安全担忧,该禁令引起了美国国内外各界的广泛批评,人们质疑美国政府压制这款流行应用背后的动机,并担心宪法权利和公平竞争原则受到侵犯。
