ward-looking, in-depth integration of the digital economy and the real economy.亚博88娱乐场419

The annual Smart China Expo, begun last year, aims to showcase new products, technologies, business formats and mod

亚博88娱乐场419es of smart technology through conferences, exhibitions, summits and competitions.

This year’s expo attracted over 1,800 participants and 843 companies from 28 countries a

nd regions, including 13 Nobel Prize laureates, four Turing Award winners, Fortune 500亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

business leaders and tech giants including Intel, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba and Xiaomi.

“Smart technology is developing very fast in China,” Vice-Premier Liu He said at the opening ceremony.亚博88娱乐场419

“It has become a new, important economic growth point, with preliminary statistics showing that the total industrial sc

亚博88娱乐场419ale of AI-related industries in China surpassed 500 billion yuan ($71.4 billion) in 2018.”

As the gateway to Southwest China and a major industrial base, Chongqin亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

When Brenda Kazule returned to Zambia after completing her master’s degree at the Institute of South-South Cooperation and

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信Development at Peking University in June last year, she had a thick book in her unwieldy luggage.

Kazule, a traditional-affairs officer from Muchinga province, said the book —?Xi Jinping: The Governance of China?— is import

ant to her because it gave her insights about China’s development as well as the governing of the world’s most popu亚博88娱乐场419

lous country by the Communist Party of China, and she wanted to share it with her colleagues.

Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

resident of China in March 2013, the country’s diplomacy has opened new prospects and achieved new progress.

亚博88娱乐场419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin

ciples of the top CPC leadership’s governance and also helps foreign people better understand China’s development

path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

Kazule said what impressed her most about the book was the cou

Radicals breached ‘bottom line’ of law, spokeswoman says

Two organizations of the central government expressed strong indignation and condemnation on Wednesd亚博88娱乐场419

ay over violent acts targeting mainland residents at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the airport resumed operations on Wednesday after the High Court in the Hong Kong亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

Special Administrative Region issued an interim injunction banning unlawful obstruction of airport operations.

亚博88娱乐场419The order, requested by Airport Authority Hong Kong, prohibits

any person from unlawfully and willfully obstructing and interfering with ope

rations at the airport, according to a statement issued by the authority on Wednesday morning.

The Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrativ亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

e Region and the State Council’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office responded to the violence at the airport.

Two mainland residents were illegally detained and beaten on Tuesday night by radical protesters who occupied and crip亚博88娱乐场419

led the airport. The two are a Global Times reporter and a Shenzhen resident who was accused of being an undercover pol

ice officer from the mainland. After the assault, the two were taken to local hospitals for medical treatment.亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

“The atrocity has totally gone beyond the bottom line of a civilized society,

which is no different from terrorists’ acts,” the Liaison Office statement said.

The office pointed out that the protesters’ acts, including paralyzing operations of the airport and harassing passengers of var亚博88娱乐场419

ious nationalities and ages, severely hurt others’ rights and damaged Hong Kong’s international reputation.

“This time the protesters have torn down their deceptive masks of ‘peace, rationality and nonviolence'”, the statement said.亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

The liaison office pledged that it will continue to stand behind relevant authoritie

s to safeguard the personal safety and legitimate rights of mainland residents in Hong Kong.

ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信wloon and the New Territories and said that police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.

The HKSAR said on Saturday that protesters who breach the law should be brought to justice, while the police reiter亚博88娱乐场419

ated on early Sunday that anyone participating in an unauthorized assembly will be committing an offence.

A large group of protesters gathered in Tai Po on Friday although their request of such an event had been turned down by the police.

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信They damaged public properties and blocked thoroughfares including the K

owloon entrance of the Cross-Harbor Tunnel, and they also set fires in various places.

According to the police, some protesters aimed laser beams at police officers and some even hurled objects and stones at police officers.

After repeated warnin亚博88娱乐场419gs, the police dispersed the protesters, sometime using tear gas when necessary.

During the operation, HKSAR police arrested 16 people for unlawful assembly, possession of offe

亚博88娱乐场419nsive weapon, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of duties.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r

ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.

The IMF said that the country’s external position in 2018 was “broadly in li

亚博88娱乐场419ne with the level consistent with medium-term fundamentals and desirable policies”.

The organization also welcomed China’s efforts to reform its exchange rate regime to make the yuan more fle

xible, according to its report released after its latest Article IV consultation with China that concluded on July 31.亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

The clarification by the IMF indicates that the US Treasury’s reckless claim on Mon

day of China engaging in currency manipulation is nothing but unfounded finger-pointing.

IMF report proves 亚博88娱乐场419t manipulating currency

The latest report by International Monetary Fund (IMF) conclude

亚博88娱乐场419d that the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan was “broadly in line with medium-term f

undamentals”, and the Chinese monetary authority barely intervened in the foreign exchange market.亚博88娱乐场419

The report, released late Friday in Washington, was a blow to the lab

eling of China as “a currency manipulator” by the US administration, experts said.

The value of the Chinese currency and the country’s external position i

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信n 2018 were “broadly in line with the level consistent with medium-term fun

damentals and desirable policies,” the report said, citing that China’s current account surplus fell by around 1 pe

rcentage point to 0.4 percent of GDP in 2018 and is projected to remain contained at 0.5 percent of GDP in 2019.

Estimates showed that the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central ban亚博88娱乐场419

k, has had “little FX intervention”, said the report, which is based on IMF’s latest Ar

ticle IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信The IMF’s conclusion came in just four days after the US Treasury officially la

beled China as a “currency manipulator” on Monday. The Chinese yuan

weakened to beyond 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade earlier this week.亚博88娱乐场419

“The IMF conclusion is objective and reflected that the renminbi was assessed to be broadly

in line with medium-term fundamentals. The result kept pace with what it said in July,” said Zhang Xiaohui, a s

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信enior researcher of the China Finance 40 Forum (CF40), and former assistant governor of the PBOC.

What the IMF concluded is a just decision, reflecting that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, according to Yu Yo

ngding, a senior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant of CF40.

The action plan pledges that by the end of 2020, authorities

must grasp the dust hazards situation of related employers and the employe

Marked progress will be made in the rectification and control of dust hazards in industries including c

At a giant venue at Beijing’s 751 Park, a stage was decorated like a replica of an apartment building in New York.

Then, a few minutes after the event host appeared from the door, three windows opened, with

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信comedian Chen Peisi, actor Feng Shaofeng and Taiwan singer-actress Amber Kuo appearing from them.

Each of the guests then hugged a furry creature resembling the an

imal characters they perform in the voice-overs for the upcoming Hollywood an亚博88娱乐场419

imation sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, which will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday.

亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信In the film, Chen is the voice of the conceited rabbit Snowball, while Feng dubs t

he canine protagonist Max, and Kuo lends her voice to Gidget, a white Pomeranian.

As well as the three celebrities, the film also features renowned director Feng Xiaogan亚博88娱乐场419

g and actress Ma Li, who lend their voices to two of the major animal characters in the Mandarin version.

At a news conference held in the Chinese capital on June 25, the stars tried to strike

亚博88娱乐场419a chord with local audiences through sharing personal stories about raising pets.

Meanwhile, latest data from the box-office tracker Maoyan showed that the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entert亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

ainment production has topped the presale box-office charts for animation features as of Friday.

Comments on review aggregator Douban, an important reference point for fans to select their weekend viewing, also suggest亚博88娱乐场419

ed that the film had drawn the highest number of potential theatergoers for its opening day.

For most industry observers, the film typifies the latest efforts by foreign animati亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

on productions to grab attention in China, the world’s second-largest movie market.

亚博88娱乐场419Jiang Yong, a Beijing-based analyst, says that using Chinese celebrities for the Mand

arin voice-overs is a pivotal part of the local marketing strategy for imported animation films.

“And, despite the fact that most adult viewers, especially those in their 20s or 30s, are used to watching native language orig亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

inals with subtitles, the Mandarin version is the top option for families with young children,” adds Jiang.

But while stars can boost ticket sales, some of them have also sparked contro

versy, mostly due to skepticism surrounding their inadequate voice-over techniques.

President underlines two-way cooperation, strategic coordination

China and Turkey should enhance mutual strategic trust and respect each other’s core interests

and major concerns on such issues as sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, President Xi Jinping said on Tuesday.

Xi made the remark while meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Previously, Xi hosted a welcoming ceremony for Erdogan.

Erdogan said that Turkey firmly supports the one-China policy, and that it is a fact that the people of all ethnicities in Xinjian

g are leading a happy life amid China’s development and prosperity. Turkey will not allow anybody to sow dissension among the two countries, he said.

Noting that both China and Turkey are important emerging markets and developin

g countries, Xi said it is of great significance for them to enhance strategic cooperation.

The two countries also should strengthen strategic coordination, consolidate the politica

l foundation of the China-Turkey strategic cooperation and cooperative relationship, a

nd ensure that the bilateral relations always operate on a healthy and stable track, Xi said.

China appreciates that Erdogan has reaffirmed his commitment many times to not allow any forces to carry out anti-Chinese or separatist activities in Turkey, Xi said.

China attaches great importance to Turkey’s stance of supporting China’s fight against te

rrorism, Xi said, adding that China would like to enhance their anti-terrorism cooperation.

Xi said the two sides should enhance connection of development strategies and deepen practical cooperation. Hailing Turkey as an important partner for join

tly building the Belt and Road, Xi said that China would like to speed up connecting the Belt and Road with Turkey’s Middle Corridor plan, and pro

mote the cooperation in areas including trade, investment, science, energy, infrastructure and major projects.

Guo Rui, a professo 亚博88娱乐场419r of international relations at Jilin

University, said, “Although the DMZ meeting has created significant momentum that will help restart a change on the Korean Peninsula, as sanctions will remain in place, chances are

?亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信not high that the meeting will lead to a major change in the short-term trajectory of denuclearizing the peninsula.”

One of the most encouraging signs that emerged from the meeting between President Xi Jinpi

ng and US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka on Saturday was the s?亚博88娱乐场419

oftening of Trump’s stance on the sanctions the US administration had imposed on Chinese telecommunications equi

pment provider Huawei. Trump said US companies can continue selling telecom components to Huawei.?亚博88娱乐场419

If US companies indeed continue selling telecom components to Huawei, it will come as a big relief to the world at a time when th

e international community fears the “technology decoupling” of world’s largest and second-largest economies could u?亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

ndermine global technological development, especially the commercialization of 5G technology, in which Huawei is a leading global player.

Previously the US administration was reportedly mulling banning 5G telecom equipment designed and manufactured in China, includin?亚博88娱乐场419

g those made by multinational companies such as Ericsson and Nokia, from the US market.
The fact is, as a global leader in 5G, Hu

?亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信awei is too big to fail. After the US administration banned American companies from selling chips to Huawei an

d other Chinese companies, Silicon Valley has suffered as much, if not more than, Huawei. Besides, some companies co

ntinued to supply chips to Huawei via their overseas branches in order to avoid violating the US ban.?亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

Hopefully, the Xi-Trump meeting and the likely resumption of trade talks between China and the U

S will prompt Washington to adopt a consistent and the right approach toward Chinese high-tech co

mpanies, not least because China tends to treat all companies, domestic as well as foreign, equally.?亚博88娱乐场419品茶微信

For example, with research and development centers and manufacturing bases in China, Er

icsson and Nokia have won big contracts in the just launched bid for 5G network devices. These companies hav

e been supplying to markets and serving telecom operators and enterprises across the globe, by capi

talizing on China’s skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure and complete industrial chain.

Yet, if the US does not lift the ban, such companies would have to endure higher production co

sts. They could even be forced to transfer their businesses out of China, although both Ericsson and Nokia cl

aim they can operate production bases in other countries despite the higher costs, due to the flexible supply chain.
