In Beijing ended the “two sessions” — the annual meeting of the national Committee of the people’s political consultative Council of China (a kind of “political advisers”) and the all-China Assembly of national representatives (vsnp, the “Parliament” of China). Surprises closure “two sessions” has been the most high profile initiative was the resolution On “national security”, threatens to put an end to the independence of Hong Kong.”Fully and faithfully to adhere to the policy of “one country, two systems”” — this promise was given by Premier of the state Council of China Li Keqiang in answering a reporter’s question at a press conference. He promised that Beijing will provide Hong Kong’s “high degree of autonomy on the principle of “Hong Kong govern themselves tangency””, quoted by the official Agency “Xinhua”, using the Chinese name of the special administrative region. Mr. Lee stressed that in pursuance of this principle, and the decision on the elaboration and adoption of the scandalous law on national security.It is one of the main themes that were considered at the session of the national people’s Congress. The approved resolution “On national security” provides for measures to prevent threats to national security in Hong Kong, including a ban on “secession, Subversion and terrorism”. The document was supported 2878 delegates, six abstained, one opposed.It is expected that Beijing will have the right to use in Hong Kong of its staff of intelligence, which, according to supporters of the autonomy of the city, will allow Chinese authorities to detain without trial of unwanted citizens. Sources Reuters reported that Hong Kong judges are foreigners disqualified to hear cases on issues of national security that completely undermine the judicial independence of the city.The final version of the law, however, will be developed by the standing Committee of the national people’s Congress and will take effect without submission to the authorities of Hong Kong. All necessary procedures are expected to spend about two months.Beijing’s plans have caused not only large-scale protests in Hong Kong, but also criticism from Washington. This may result in the loss of the status of a special trading partner of the US, which will adversely affect its economy.In addition, it confirmed the decision as early as 2020, despite the epidemic COVID-19, to be completed in the country to build “a society of average prosperity” (passenger). According to the plan in 2020, such a society must be built (which includes ten indicators, including the availability of computers and a high percentage of the urban population), poverty eradicated, and the GDP and income per capita should be doubled compared to 2010.Approved a package of economic “protivokariosnoe” help the economy recovery sent 6 tRLN yuan ($840 billion, about 6% of GDP). 70% will be allocated to the maintenance of incomes, the labour market and stimulate domestic consumption. Separately, it emphasizes that special attention will be paid to small and medium businesses, which provide up to 90% of all jobs in the country.The NPC also approved the first country in the history of the civil code: the document of 1260 articles is intended to harmonise the legislation and make it more understandable and convenient for the population.”The adoption of the civil code, of course, it is important for China — a country more than half a century lived without such a set of civil law. This, of course, the movement to base the codification of civil — political — rights. XI Jinping was originally setup to “lock power in a cage system” and it involves not only “government by law”, but actually the rule of law”,— told “Kommersant” head of the programme “Russia in Asia-Pacific,” Carnegie Moscow center Alexander Gabuev.According to him, was important and the system of anti-crisis measures proposed by the authorities, and the fact that Beijing decided not to provide the projected economic growth for next year. “This suggests that in Beijing, the prevailing caution — China doesn’t understand what real growth, and therefore does not want to take on unrealistic obligations, nor to tie their hands and to achieve growth at any cost by, for example, cheap credit money”,— said Mr. Gabuev.He said that, coming out of the 2008 crisis, China told foreign observers that coped with the difficulties faster than any other, but in fact in the country so a forced exit from the crisis had a largely negative effect.”As for Hong Kong, the resolution, of course, overshadowed all the other decisions, largely because of the American-Chinese conflict. To call this law a triumph for China, not triumph’d in the peaceful merger of Hong Kong and the rest of China in 2047, as provided in the transfer of the city in the UK,” said sinologist. According to him, a relatively tough one, you decided to go Beijing, was a natural result of protest activity and in another way the situation could not. China hoped that Hong Kong is integrated into the country and protests that do not interfere, but hopes to it collapsed. “The Chinese authorities hoped to control the city through the business elite, which makes Beijing, and protesting young people and supporters of democracy are not out there any weight. This bill, in part, demonstrated the crisis, they adopted the model and the recognition that, in addition to the whip, they have no other tools,” he concluded.Alexey Naumov
