COLOMBO Mens Air Jordan 13 Wheat Golden Harvest Elemental Gold For Sale , May 30 (Xinhua) -- Sri Lanka on Tuesday defended its preparedness to face natural disasters following floods and landslides which killed nearly 200 people so far.

Cabinet spokesman Rajitha Senaratne told reporters that Sri Lanka was caught by surprise when the heavy rain brought floods and landslides.

He said that early warnings had been issued for areas prone to landslides but some people disregarded the warnings.

Meanwhile the United Nations said that based on previous emergencies, drinking water and non-food items (NFIs) were identified as immediate needs by the National Disaster Relief Services Center in Sri Lanka.

The full extent of damage and needs is expected to be more clear once additional areas become accessible.

Sri Lanka's Disaster Management Center has activated the International Space Charter Center to obtain satellite imagery to support analysis of the flood damage. Cloud coverage, however, is constraining collection of images.

The Chinese government has said it will offer humanitarian aid worth 15 million yuan (about 2.2 million U.S. dollars) to Sri Lanka for its flood relief efforts.

The relief supplies include tents Mens Air Jordan 13 GS Bordeaux Sail Cheap Price , blankets and others which Sri Lanka is in urgent need of, and will be sent to the country in the shortest time, the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement.

BEIJING, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Rather than adding to pure optimism Mens Air Jordan 13 Love Respect Pack White For Sale , fresh official data released Thursday painted a realistic picture of the world's second largest economy that is slower in expansion but steady in reforms.

China posted weaker-than-expected growth in key economic indicators in the first eight months of this year, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

Industrial output, a gauge of the activity of large enterprises, grew 6 percent year on year in August Mens Air Jordan 13 GS Love Respect Pack Black For Sale , down from the 6.4-percent pace a month earlier and retreating to the lowest level this year. Fixed asset investment fell short of expectations with a 7.8-percent rise in the January-August period, the weakest since 1999.

Retail sales rose 10.1 percent last month, lower than market estimates of 10.5 percent and July's 10.4-percent rate. Private investment and property sales also registered slower growth.

Thursday's data came after a strong economic rebound that features forecast-beating GDP expansion in the first two quarters and aroused concerns over the growth impetus of the economy.

Bloomberg chief Asia economist Tom Orlik said in an e-mail that the data showed "a slightly sharper-than-expected loss of momentum," adding that headwinds against the economy are significant.

"China still faces lurking problems and challenges" from external uncertainties and domestic transformation Air Jordan 13 GS Wolf Grey White Jordan Shoes For Sale , NBS spokesperson Liu Aihua said at a press conference, but dismissed worries that the lackluster performance will linger for the remainder of the year.

"Short-term volatility can be triggered by non-economic factors, such as weather and comparison bases, and does not represents the overall trend Men's Air Jordan 13 Retro DMP White Gold Cheap Price ," Liu said, adding that high temperatures and more rainfall disrupted factory activity this summer.

Employment was stable and inflation was under control. The surveyed unemployment rate in 31 cities was under 5 percent last month and consumer prices rose 1.8 percent. Industrial enterprises saw their profits improve substantially in the first seven months.

"The economy still stayed within a reasonable range," Liu said, predicting stability in the second half. China has targeted an annual economic growth of around 6.5 percent for 2017 Men's Air Jordan 13 Retro History of Flight White Red For Sale , down from the 6.7 percent pace recorded in 2016.

The NBS data also pointed to solid progress in the country's economic rebalancing and industrial upgrades.

With old growth engines losing steam, China is pressing forward with a new model of economic development that draws strength from consumption, services sector and innovation.

Services maintained rapid expansion in August, with revenues of information and rental services logging double-digit growth.

Investment into high-tech sectors jumped 19.5 percent in the first eight months Men's Air Jordan 13 Low Black Brave Blue Blue Silver For Sale , while the environmental protection industry saw investment up by 28.2 percent.

The output of industrial robots surged 63 percent in the January-August period, and 25 percent more new energy vehicles rolled off assembly lines.

"In the details, there were some positives for China's reform and rebalancing story, with most of the slowdown in production coming from investment and output of old-line industries Men's Air Jordan 13 Low Chutney Black White ," Orlik said.

China has made headway in downsizing saturated sectors. Around 128 million tonnes of excess coal capacity was eliminated during the January-July period, while shoddy steel products were banned.

Economic adjustments continued with improvements in quality and efficiency, Liu said.
