Top Chinese leaders paid homage to the Chinese soldiers who died fighting Japanese aggression during the Second World War Friday, the 65th anniversary of the Japanese surrender to China.
At the Museum of the War of the Chinese People's Resistance Against Japanese Aggression in Beijing, Chinese President Hu Jintao, top legislator Wu Bangguo, Premier Wen Jiabao and other members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee - Jia Qinglin, Li Changchun, Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang and Zhou Yongkang - presented bouquets to honor the war martyrs.
Veterans, foreigners who helped China fight the Japanese invaders and other citizens also mourned the martyrs with silent tribute.
The Chinese government issued a white paper on its human resources, highlighting the country's policies to cope with employment pressures and a lack of "high-level innovative talents."
The white paper, released by the State Council Information Office, introduced the country's human resources situation, related laws and regulations and protection of workers' rights and interests.
The 41-page paper, the first of its kind in China, says China's 1.3 billion population is "a vast reservoir of human resources," and "actively developing human resources, bringing into full play the potential ability and value of each individual and promoting the people's all-round development" is a significant aim.
Four Chinese government agencies jointly released a circular urging a "high voltage" crackdown take place along with more severe punishments for food safety crimes.
According to the document, in addition to casualties and the amount of money involved, Chinese courts should also weigh in on offenders' subjective culpability, criminal methods and the negative effects their behaviors cause to various markets, when sentencing the criminals.
Repeat offenders, principals of criminal groups and those resulting in severe harm to people or to large-scale sales, should be "strictly" punished in accordance with laws and regulations, the circular instructed.
