Li Cuizhi, an NPC deputy and director of the quality monitoring center at Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co, said Xi's emphasis on higher-quality growth has set the direction for the company's development.
The fossil in Al Wusta was discovered by a team of researchers from the University of Oxford led by archaeologist Huw Groucutt, whose report was published in the journal Nature this week. He had been searching the area for human fossils for 10 years before unearthing a single bone from the middle finger of a Homo sapien.
"The most improved African countries year-on-year are Madagascar (121st, up seven places), Gambia (117th, up six), Kenya (91st, up five), and Senegal (106th, up six), thanks either to an improved macroeconomic environment (Madagascar and Senegal) or to the efficiency of goods, labor, and financial markets (Gambia and, to a lesser extent, Kenya), the report says.
“It was very clearly a human finger bone - it was instant excitement,” said Groucutt. The bone was found near fossils of hippos and buffalos, suggesting the now arid area was once a vast wetland.
Experts attribute this to recent infrastructure expansion, especially in countries that have strong Chinese presence - Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. The report also notes improvement in health, technological readiness and business sophistication.
"The addition establishes their guiding status in the country's political and social life, reflects common aspirations of people of all ethnic groups, embodies the unity in the Party's advocacy and people's will, and makes clear the common ideological foundation for the entire Party and all the Chinese people to strive for national rejuvenation," read the document.
