全球竞争力排名 香港第6中国大陆第27

Out of 137 economies surveyed worldwide, the Chinese mainland ranks 27th in terms of overall competitiveness while in innovation, it is "on par with or even better than many advanced economies," the Geneva-based World Economic Forum said.


The Chinese mainland places between South Korea and Iceland in the latest WEF Global Competitiveness Index, an annual ranking based on factors contributing to productivity and prosperity.


The mainland ranks highest among the BRICS group of five emerging markets and moves up to 27th, one place higher than in last year's assessment.


BRICS also includes Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa.


The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region moves up three spots to sixth place.


According to the index, Switzerland, the US, Singapore, the Netherlands and Germany are the top five most competitive economies in the world.


David Aikman, chief representative of the World Economic Forum's China operation, said the most important development in the past decade has been the mainland's emergence as an innovation powerhouse.


新版北京总体规划获批 划定2300万人口红线

China announced it would limit Beijing's population to 23 million by 2020 and build a world-class city group around the capital.


"The scale of the city should be controlled," the State Council said in response to The Beijing Urban Master Plan, urging the city to limit its permanent population to 23 million by 2020 and maintain it at that level.


Beijing's permanent population was 21.7 million at the end of 2016.


"We should defend the three red lines of the population, ecology and urban exploitation," the reply said, noting that the strictest water management system should be enforced to ensure the capital's water security.


The urban design should be better managed with more public space, while maintaining the keynote and diversity of urban architecture.


The reply also stressed the synergic development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, vowing to build a world-class city group with the capital as the core.

About Entertainment


Call Me By Your Name


André Aciman’s 2007 novel has spawned a big screen adaptation that’s among the most acclaimed films of the year. Up-and-coming 21-year-old actor Timothée Chalamet plays a young man living in Italy who has a passionate affair with an older academic (Armie Hammer). When it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, BBC Culture critic Sam Adams awarded Call Me By Your Name five stars and praised Chalamet and Hammer’s chemistry, the lush photography of the sun-kissed Italian setting, and the particular nuance and depth of the script. It will be a major Academy Awards contender. Released November 24 in the US.


Thor: Ragnarok


Until now Thor has been the neglected child of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though some liked Kenneth Branagh’s first film featuring the god of thunder, Chris Hemsworth was arguably overshadowed by Tom Hiddleston’s preening popinjay of a villain, Loki. And the second film, the humourless Thor: The Dark World, is widely regarded as the worst film released by Marvel Studios to date. So to inject new life into this sagging franchise, Marvel brought in New Zealand comedy auteur Taiki Waititi to add some Kiwi quirk. This time Thor faces down the goddess of death, played by Cate Blanchett. Thor may have the hammer, but she has the attitude. Released November 1 in Serbia and Hungary, November 2 in Cambodia and Israel and November 3 in India and Canada.




In an industry enthralled to rehashed stories that strike a familiar chord with audiences, give Pixar credit for often trying something new and pushing their viewers into uncharted territories. Coco, directed by Toy Story 3’s Lee Unkrich, has a visual look based around Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). It’s about a young boy named Miguel who idolises legendary guitar player Ernesto de la Cruz and wants to learn how to play as well as he could. So he goes on a transformative odyssey of self-discovery into the realm of the dead to find his long-deceased idol and learn some lessons about the nature of creativity and originality. Whether it can reach the heights of Pixar’s 2015 masterpiece Inside Out remains to be seen, but Coco should surely be a feast for the eyes. Released November 15 in France, November 22 in the US, Croatia and the Philippines, and November 30 in Israel.


Good Time


Have any franchise-leading duo reinvented themselves as spectacularly as Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson? Both have become art-house mainstays. Pattinson’s latest Good Time, keeps going his recent pattern of looking fairly unrecognisable. After he transformed himself with shaggy beard and spectacles in The Lost City of Z he now has bleach-blond hair as a bank robber who tries to pull off the perfect heist in New York City, only to get his younger brother (Ben Safdie), who suffers from a developmental disability, arrested for the crime. He tries to use the money he stole to post his brother’s bail, but complications ensue. Many complications. In addition to appearing as the younger brother, Safdie co-directs the film with his own brother Josh Safdie, and Good Time was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at Cannes. Released November 3 in Japan, November 17 in the UK and Ireland and November 23 in Greece.
