Cabinet support rate dips to 53% after ministers quit-Japan News
2014-10-27 Mon 10:13
Fifty-three percent of eligible voters support the Cabinet of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, according to a Yomiuri Shimbun survey taken shortly after two female Cabinet members resigned over separate scandals.

The latest figure represented a drop of nine percentage points from a similar poll conducted in early October.

The disapproval rating for the Cabinet rose to 37 percent from 30 percent in the previous survey.

The latest poll was taken on Friday and Saturday, a few days after the resignations of Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Yuko Obuchi and Justice Minister Midori Matsushima.

September’s Cabinet reshuffle helped raise the Abe administration’s support rate, partly due to his appointment of five women to the Cabinet. However, the departure of the two Cabinet members served to lower the approval rating.

Seventy-three percent of respondents said it was appropriate for Obuchi to resign over the lack of transparency in the financial dealings of one of her political support groups. Slightly over half of respondents, 53 percent, agreed with Matsushima’s resignation after an outcry over the distribution of uchiwa fans to her constituents.

China Cites Big Gain in Energy Efficiency But Doubts Remain Over Data, Economy-RFA
2014-10-27 Mon 09:40
Stimulus package

While slower economic growth has raised expectations of another big stimulus plan, the better efficiency numbers may be seen as a benefit of the government's resistance to pump-priming that relies on wasteful building projects and infrastructure investment.

"In the first half of the year, the growth of investment and production of industries with high energy consumption noticeably slowed down," Li said.

Much of the earlier trouble with meeting the five-year target stemmed from after-effects of the previous government's massive 4-trillion yuan (U.S. $651-billion) stimulus package that spurred GDP growth in 2009.

In 2011, total energy use jumped 7 percent thanks largely to the building boom, causing the government to undershoot its annual 3.5-percent target for efficiency improvement with a gain of just 2.01 percent.

While the latest results are far better, the per-unit numbers may mask the real prospects for reducing smog-causing emissions because GDP in the first half still rose 7.4 percent. Even with greater efficiency factored in, total energy consumption increased by some 3 percent.

The prevalence of both smog and global warming may paint a darker picture than China's progress toward its targets suggest, highlighting the problem with relying on per-unit measures.

While carbon emissions have fallen 28.5 percent on a per-unit basis since 2005, China's GDP has risen by 91 percent over the same period, according to one measure used by the International Monetary Fund. The result is huge total growth in emissions, despite per-unit-GDP gains.

In his U.N. speech, Zhang raised expectations that China would adopt absolute targets in the future to replace per-unit indexes, but it was not clear when.

"We will also try to bring about the peaking of total CO2 emissions as soon as possible," he said, according to Britain's The Guardian.

China Cites Big Gain in Energy Efficiency But Doubts Remain Over Data, Economy-RFA
2014-10-27 Mon 09:29
As China's economic growth sags, the government is reporting greater success in cutting energy waste, lifting hopes that the country can meet its environmental goals.

In recent years, China has missed its official conservation targets that measure energy consumption per unit of economic output, or gross domestic product (GDP).

Under its current Five-Year Plan, the government has aimed to lower its "energy intensity" in 2015 by 16 percent from the level of 2010, although reductions have fallen short of annual benchmarks so far.

In the past, analysts have blamed China's focus on economic growth for poor performance on environmental concerns, forcing energy efficiency to take a back seat.

According to one efficiency measure used by the World Bank, China's economic output per unit of energy in 2011 was 31 percent lower than that of the United States, 48 percent lower than Japan's and nearly 55 percent less than Germany's.

But this year, Premier Li Keqiang has claimed major progress, announcing on Sept. 10 that energy efficiency rose 4.2 percent in the first half from the comparable period in 2013.

The improvement from an efficiency gain of 3.7 percent last year could put China on track to meet its five-year goal.

Li reported the first-half result and a similar drop in carbon intensity of "about 5 percent" at last month's Summer Davos Forum in Tianjin, the official Xinhua news agency said.

The rates are critical to China's longer-range goal of achieving a 40 to 45-percent reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per unit of GDP by 2020 compared with 2005.

China first set the target at the United Nations summit on climate change in 2009 and reaffirmed it at the latest summit in New York on Sept. 23.

Speaking at the summit, Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli said China's carbon intensity dropped 28.5 percent from 2005 levels last year, suggesting the country is well on the way toward its 2020 goal.

In announcing the figures for the first half of this year, Li credited the new government's drive for "structural adjustment to improve growth quality," Xinhua said.

China Sees End to Era of 'GDP Supremacy' With Downplay of Growth-RFA
2014-10-27 Mon 08:39
As China struggles through a slowdown in economic growth, the government is trying to shift attention to other measures of success.

On Sept. 12, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) announced that it would start issuing a variety of new reports in an effort to end the country's preoccupation with its gross domestic product (GDP).

Ten days later, the official Xinhua news agency said the decision to publish over 40 new economic indicators on subjects ranging from urbanization to the environment "signals the end of the era of 'GDP supremacy.'"For decades, officials at all levels have pursued high GDP growth rates, reflecting the broadest index of economic expansion and their own worthiness for promotion.

But in recent years, as pollution has worsened, the central government has repeatedly urged provincial and local authorities to take other factors into account.

Last November, the Third Plenum of the ruling Chinese Communist Party Central Committee pledged to "reform the evaluation and promotion system for party officials," which has been linked to wasteful development, environmental damage and societal ills.

"We should no longer judge leaders solely by GDP growth," President Xi Jinping said in a speech last year.

"Instead, we should look at welfare improvements, social development and environmental indicators to evaluate leaders," Xi said.

韩媒:中国“罕见”表现与朝鲜改善关系意愿-BBC

韩国媒体周日(26日)报道说,中国驻朝鲜大使刘洪才在平壤强调中国与朝鲜是“坚固同盟”,表现出中国希望与朝鲜改善“恶化关系”的意愿。

分析说,中国方面这一“罕见举动”被看作是对美国在朝鲜半岛强大军事存在做出的反应。

上周四,韩国和美国达成一致,鉴于来自朝鲜持续的核威胁和导弹威胁,将“不定期”推迟移交战时作战指挥权。

1994,驻韩美军向韩国移交平时指挥权,但战时作战指挥权仍由驻韩美军掌握,移交期限已经被多次推迟。

10月25日是中国的“抗美援朝纪念日”。中国官方媒体《中国日报》也在周日报道,刘洪才大使在平壤参加了纪念志愿军入朝64周年活动
