ONDON Christian Dvorak Youth Jersey , Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Cyclists in Britain could be charged with causing death by dangerous cycling, Transport Minister Jesse Norman announced Thursday.

A government review has been ordered following a series of high profile incidents involving cyclists, the Department for Transport (DfT) said here.

The issue hit headlines in London on Monday after cyclist Charlie Alliston, 20, was cleared of manslaughter -- the British equivalent of involuntary homicide. Pedestrian Kim Briggs, 44 Max Domi Youth Jersey , died after being hit by Alliston's cycle.

The cycle had a fixed gear and no front brake. Instead Briggs was found guilty of "wanton or furious driving," an offence that dates back to the 1860s. He was ordered to be detained for 18 months in a young offenders' institution.

A new offence would match a current crime that motorists face of causing death by careless or dangerous driving, with the prospect of long prison sentences.

Transport Minister Norman also said the review would widen improvements for cycling road safety issues.

Norman said: "We already have strict laws that ensure drivers who put people's lives at risk are punished, but given recent cases it is only right for us to look at whether dangerous cyclists should face the same consequences."

The minister added that the devastation that reckless cycling and driving can cause has already been seen. Norman added: "This review will help safeguard both Britain's cyclists and those who share the roads with them."

Government spending on cycling between 2010 and 2017 has been trebled leading to a huge increase in the number of cyclists on our roads, said the DfT.

In 2015, two pedestrians were killed and 96 seriously injured on British roads after being hit by a bicycle Anthony Duclair Youth Jersey , while every year more than 100 cyclists are killed and more than 3,000 are seriously injured.

The review, which will seek to improve all elements of cycle safety, will be in two phases. The first phase will analyze the case for creating a new offence equivalent to causing death or serious injury by careless or dangerous driving to help protect both cyclists and pedestrians.

The second phase will be a wider consultation on road safety issues relating to cycling. It will consider the rules of the road, public awareness, key safety risks and the guidance and signage for all road users.

NEW YORK, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- China has the potential to maintain an annual economic growth rate of 6 percent until the 2030s, said former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank Justin Lin Yifu Tuesday.

Lin, also the honorary dean of National School of Development at Peking University, made the remarks while delivering a keynote speech during the "Forecast: China's Economy 2018," an event hosted by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations and Peking University's China Center for Economic Research in New York.

He attributed his confidence in the Chinese economy to the fact that "China's labor productivity will improve continuously in the years to come."

The economist explained that the way to maintain economic growth is to improve labor productivity Niklas Hjalmarsson Youth Jersey , and the way to raise labor productivity is to "have technology innovation as well as industrial upgrading."

Lin said that compared to developed countries like the United States, China, as a developing economy, has the so-called "latecomer advantage" in terms of technology innovation and industrial upgrading.

He further stated that developing countries like China can "learn technology that has been matured in high-income countries," so that "the cost and risks of innovation are comparably low, and potentially Luke Schenn Youth Jersey , developing countries can grow more dynamically than high-income countries."

According to Lin, China has benefited from the "latecomer advantage" in the past 40 years and achieved an annual growth rate of 9.6 percent, which was hailed as a miracle by many all over the world.

For the years to come, he predicted that China will continue to maintain a faster growth rate compared to developed countries.

To further illustrate his prediction, Lin cited his latest study of the world economy in the past 70 years, pointing out that "In 2008 Shane Doan Youth Jersey , the per capita GDP of China was 21 percent of the United States, which was similar to Japan in 1951, Singapore in 1967, China's Taiwan in 1975 and South Korea in 1977."

"The four economies above all achieved an annual growth rate of 8 percent to 9 percent continuously over the next 20 years, which indicates that China can achieve around an 8 percent growth rate continuously from 2008 to 2028," said Lin.

He added that real economic growth will depend on how much China carries out current reforms to ensure social and political stability as well as on the global economic situation.

"From my observation Clayton Keller Youth Jersey , it is very likely that China will be able to achieve a 6 percent growth rate from now until around the 2030s," Lin noted.
