>'Dual circulation' to power growth
中国开启'双循环'发展模式

The "dual circulation" development paradigm, in which domestic and overseas markets reinforce each other, with the domestic market as the mainstay, was mentioned as a guiding thought in a blueprint for China's development in the next five to 15 years.
以国内大循环为主体、国内国际双循环相互促进的"双循环"发展格局将是中国未来5到15年发展蓝图的指导理念。

Domestic circulation will be key to the new development pattern, with detailed measures to be rolled out to expand domestic consumption and smooth supply chains. But "dual circulation" is by no means a closed domestic loop.
国内大循环对新发展模式至关重要,政府将推出具体措施来扩大内需、保持供应链顺畅。尽管国内市场对新发展格局很关键,但“双循环”绝对不是封闭的国内循环。

China will work to promote the coordinated development of both domestic and external demand, imports and exports, as well as foreign and outbound investment. The country will stay committed to further opening-up.
中国将积极促进内需和外需、进口和出口、引进外资和对外投资协调发展,坚定不移地进一步扩大对外开放。

It also extends an additional $300 weekly federal unemployment benefits through September.

巴赫成功连任IOC主席

Thomas Bach proposed that "together" be added to the Olympic slogan of "faster, higher, stronger" after being re-elected as president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) during the virtual 137th IOC Session on Wednesday.
国际奥委会第137次全会3月10日以视频会议的形式召开,国际奥委会主席巴赫在主席选举中成功连任。之后他建议在奥林匹克格言"更快、更高、更强"后面,再加入一个词"together"(意为"在一起、携手或共同")。

In his acceptance speech addressing IOC members, Bach said: "We learned during this coronavirus crisis, the hard way, that we can live up to our Olympic slogan 'faster, higher, stronger', in sports and in life, only if we are working together in solidarity. The world is so interdependent that nobody can solve the real big challenges alone anymore."
巴赫在向国际奥委会成员发表连任致辞时说:"我们在这场新冠危机中艰难地认识到,只有团结一致,才能在体育和生活中践行我们的奥运口号'更快、更高、更强'。当今世界彼此依靠,单靠个体已经无法应对巨大的挑战。"

"There is no doubt the opening ceremony (of Tokyo 2020) will take place on July 23," Bach reiterated in his opening remarks.
巴赫还重申:"毫无疑问,东京奥运会的开幕式将于7月23日举行。"
