A staff member places cartons of milk on refrigerator shelves at a supermarket in Beijing, China, May 21, 2021. China is the world's third-largest milk producer, but last year's 34 million tonnes of output only met about 70% of domestic needs. On the face of it, China's dairy market, worth some $62 billion in annual sales, is ripe for development. "Average per capita consumption is still very low," Gao Lina, the CEO of China Modern Dairy Holdings Ltd (1117.HK) told Reuters. China Youran Dairy is planning an IPO, seeking up to $800 million to expand its breeding herd and increase milk output.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterChina will uphold the leadership of the Communist Party in Tibet to further its economic development, and guide Tibetan society in accordance to socialism, the region's top official said on Saturday. The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. "First and foremost we must uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China," said Tibet's Party Secretary Wu Yingjie at a news conference in Beijing. "Since the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, everyone has discovered that only with party leadership can Tibet continue on this road of prosperous development," Wu said. China has rebuffed attempts by the CTA to reopen a dialogue since 2010, and Beijing maintains that the Dalai Lama is a separatist.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin attends a news conference in Beijing, China December 14, 2020. REUTERS/Thomas PeterChina condemned on Thursday a joint statement by G7 foreign ministers that expressed support for Chinese-claimed Taiwan and cast Beijing as a bully, saying it was a gross interference in China’s internal affairs. G7 foreign ministers said in a communique after a London summit that China was guilty of human rights abuses and of using its economic influence to bully others. China regards Taiwan as its own territory and opposes any official Taiwan representation on an international level. The G7 statement was warmly received in Taipei, where the government said this was the first time the foreign ministers had mentioned the island in their joint communique.

Staff members talk outside booths where people receive a vaccine against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at a vaccination center, during a government-organized visit, in Beijing, China, April 15, 2021. China had administered a total of 243.91 million doses as of April 28, surpassing 234.6 million shots the United States has given. The fifth Chinese vaccine, developed by a state microbiology research agency, has yet to release efficacy data, and Sinovac (SVA.O) is the only vaccine maker that has released detailed data so far. That leaves China to rely on data from coronavirus-hit countries that use its vaccines such as Chile, Brazil and Indonesia. But the rate could go down to 70-80% when it uses vaccines with efficacy of higher than 90%, Cowling said.

BEIJING (Reuters) -China’s factory gate prices beat analyst expectations to rise at their fastest annual pace since July 2018 in March in the latest sign that a recovery in the world’s second-largest economy is gathering momentum. FILE PHOTO: People look at fresh seafood in a supermarket following an outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Beijing, China, August 13, 2020. The inflation data is the latest indicator to point to robust economic growth in the January-March quarter. That was the weakest full-year reading in over 40 years as China grappled with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Beijing has warned that uncertainties related to the pandemic, which has claimed more than 3 million lives worldwide, continue to overshadow the economic outlook.
