    BEIJING Da'Ron Payne Redskins Jersey , May 27 (Xinhua) -- China's major industrial firms posted double-digit profit growth in the first four months of this year on the back of a firming economy, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Saturday.

    Industrial companies with annual revenue of more than 20 million yuan (about 2.92 million U.S. dollars) reported profits of 2.28 trillion yuan in the first four months, a 24.4-percent increase from one year earlier, the NBS said in a statement.

    CHINA is concerned over the detention of more than 1,000 Chinese nationals in the Philippines during a crackdown on online gambling, the Foreign Ministry said yesterday.

    The Philippine immigration bureau last week detained about 1,200 Chinese people working in call center-like facilities who were suspected of running online gambling operations out of a former American air base Montae Nicholson Limited Jersey , Clark Field.

    The detentions marked the government’s biggest such round-up of Chinese nationals in the Philippines, many thought to be working there “illegally.”

    Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Beijing had requested that Manila “appropriately make arrangements” for those who had been detained and quickly release individuals who had “legal identification.”

    “At the same time, China expresses concern over the large number of Chinese citizens detained by the Philippines,” Geng told a regular press briefing.

    Geng added that China always reminded its citizens who traveled abroad to abide by local laws.

    It is unclear if the Chinese nationals were being held for gambling offences or for visa and immigration violations Samaje Perine Limited Jersey , but about 900 were brought to the immigration detention center in Manila, according to a Philippine police report.

    China has expressed support for other law enforcement efforts in the Philippines, including President Rodrigo Duterte’s anti-narcotics campaign, which has sparked criticism from the United States and other Western countries over fears of “extrajudicial killings.”

    STOCKHOLM, March 22 (Xinhua) -- The world needs effective and inclusive water governance amid a growing demand, said Hakan Tropp, director of water governance at the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), on Wednesday.

    The amount of water available is unchanging, yet demand for it is growing every day, especially from the manufacturing, energy and food producing sectors, he told Xinhua during a ceremony held here for announcing the 2017 Stockholm Water Prize winner.

    "We see an increasing number of cities and factories reaching further into the rural landscape to claim water resources, increasing the potential for water to be a source of tough trade-offs and social and political tensions," he noted.

    Tropp called for an effective and inclusive governance of water resources worldwide.

    "The world needs effective, and more inclusive water governance. We need to make better decisions today to manage the water demands of tomorrow," he said.

    "We also need to make sure that the water available is used for the greater public good and is recognized as a critical component to eradicating poverty," the water expert added.

    According to SIWI, nearly 40 percent of the world's population lives in countries that share river basins. Increasing stress on water resources globally demands reasonable and equitable use of transboundary waters.

    SIWI also believes that improved management of transboundary waters reduces the potential for conflict, fosters socio-economic development, promotes shared benefits, and supports healthy ecosystems and services.

    Tropp pointed out that water resources are currently over-exploited and polluted in many places, and millions of people around the world lack access to safe water and basic sanitation.

    "I hope to see clear political direction that empowers decision-makers to make better choices for both people and the environment," he said.

    "For example, improved water governance reduces investment risks. A more stable and reliable investment environment leads to more investments into water. By.
