While some netizens praised the story, others felt cheated for the home decoration advertisement afte

r the video. Jiang Luxian, a lawyer from Chengdu, Sichuan province, said the advertisement probably violates relevant provisions of the A

dvertising Law, and the creativity of “sharing father” is also improper for public order and traditions.

Oppein, the creator behind the promotion, however, said on social media that

it hoped everyone would pay attention to the lack of father figures, and return to the family for love.

“Everything can be shared in this era, apart from family love,” the company said.

The province has given 1.69 million registered poo

 students stipends worth a total of 5.3 billion yuan ($777 million) since 2015, according to Guizhou’s Education Department.

While working out its strategy to impart knowledge to rural children, Guizh

ou has also taken into consideration that many kids come to school hungry.

According to Bao Benqi of the provincial Education Department, the Guizhou government has set the goal that

“each of the primary and secondary schools in the rural areas should have a canteen so that lunch can be served to every student”.

The meal is believed to help students improve their performance at school. Many studen

ts in the poverty-stricken areas had been coming to class with an empty stomach, since they did not have food at home.

“More than 3.8 million primary and secondary school students and

860,000 preschool kids are covered in the nutrition project every year,” Bao said.

In the years since, the country has continued to maint

tain a breakneck pace of economic development, which has brought booming economic prosperity.

Unfortunately, it has also brought a deteriorating environment. Seeing heavy smog, for ex

ample, many people feel that a worsening environment will destroy the happiness brought by economic growth.

Since 2012, the new leadership under President Xi Jinping has put forward a series of ecol

ogical ideas. On Sunday, Xi said at the opening ceremony of the exhibition that “green mountains and cle

ar waters are indeed mountains of gold and silver, and environmental improvement means great productivity”.

This idea, dubbed the theory of two mountains, enjoys immense popular support in China.

Xi, who is also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party o

f China, urged officials at all levels never to sacrifice the environment for economic growth.

Guests share thoughts on president’s speech

What impressed me most is that President Xi highlighted the importance of sustainable d

evelopment. The hosting of the Horticultural Expo is the best chance to raise people’s attention to the conce

pt of sustainability, both in China and around the world.President Xi outlined his commitment to open and gre

en development as well as underlined China’s dedication to conserving the ecosystem now and for generations to come.

Xi’s call for countries to work together for the common goal o

f improving the global ecosystem aligns well with the Paris Agreement. This is an excellent foll

ow-on from the commitment outlined in the communique from the Belt and Road Forum.

In this communique, to which the UAE is a signatory, countries ag

reed that cooperation will be open and clean, with green development promoted.

The expo attracted widespread global participation, and I think everybody will recog

nize China’s vision in green development and its resolve to build a green future.
