s landmarks of the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019 Beijing China, the China Pavilion and the Intern

ational Pavilion are attracting large numbers of visitors thanks to their unique designs and functions.

China said Monday it will ease the requirements for permanent residency in many large cities as part of its new urbanization push.

Restrictions on permanent residence permits should be scrapped in cities with populatio

ns between 1 million and 3 million, according to a document outlining key urbanization tasks this year release

d by the National Development and Reform Commission, the country’s top economic planner.

For cities with populations of 3 million to 5 million, the qualifications for such permits should be “fully relaxed,” and the restrictions

for certain key groups of people to get such permits should be removed, the document said.

Previously, the country has already gradually abolished permanent residency restrictions in

small and medium-sized cities and towns with populations below 1 million.

The NDRC document also demanded cities with populations above 5

million to improve their policies and drastically expand the scale of permanent residency.

  Gujarat in late 2001, the state was wracked with violence in which more than 1,000 people — mostly Muslims — were killed.

  Although his critics say Modi didn’t do enough to stop the violence, he has always denied any involvement and has never be

en charged with a crime. A supreme court ordered investigation in India cleared him of any blame or wrongdoing.

  Now after five years at the helm, he is struggling to retain the support that

saw his spectacular rise in 2014 — in contrast to his Pakistani counterpart. Imran Kh
