Hi there,
I don't know the meaning of 'with' in the following sentence.

With 200 days to go to the opening of the Olympics, the Beijing government faces the herculean task of cleaning up the city's polluted air and reining in its chaotic traffic.

Thanks

In this sentence 'with' indicates possession - a synonym might be 'having'.
