n macroeconomic terms, the China-US trade dispute ha

as added huge uncertainties to the US economy and raised the likelihood of recession. Which could

thwart the US president’s chances of being re-elected in 2020. And the trade dispute could pre

vent the US from taking the measures it intends to in order to consolidate its national power.

As for China, the significant deviation in the US’ stances and objectives

in the trade talks should be a warning for it to more strictly stick to its principles. And the

fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.

China may grant official 5G licenses, instead of the interim licenses previously planned, to tel

ecom carriers this year and is likely to start commercial use of the superfast wireless technology na

tionwide in the near future, possibly as soon as October, according to people familiar with the matter.

he said. The report also found that studying overseas is no longer limited to wealthy fam

ilies, and the number of students from middle-class families studying overseas keeps growing.

According to the survey on parents’ professional backgrounds, most parents whose children prefer studying overseas hold o

rdinary positions at work, accounting for 43 percent of the total, up 14 percentage points from 2015.

Parents who are middle-level managers accounted for 35 percent, and those who are high-level executives accounted for 22 per

cent, the report said. The number of students studying overseas for master’s degrees continues to increase, a

counting for 70 percent of the total, up from 57 percent in 2016. They are studying ov

erseas to obtain higher academic qualifications and be more competitive in the domestic job market, it said.

Apart from proposing to build a community of shared

 future for mankind in his speech at the headquarters of the United

ations in September 2015, and in his report for the 19th National Congress of the Communist Par

ty of China in October 2017, Xi has pledged on different occasions to build a peaceful, safe, prosperous, open, inc

lusive, clean and beautiful world to let the sunshine of a community of shared future for mankind illuminate the world.

The world, which is going through a phase of adjustment that fea

tures huge development and fundamental changes, faces great and unfamiliar turbulent situ

ations — the overall trends of peace and development are irreversible, while instabilit

y and uncertainty are prominent. Some problems and challenges are unprecedented, and the int

ernational community faces crucial choices concerning the future of the world and the fate of humanity.

Last year, we issued an announcement offering op

portunities for all UN member states to propose experiments they want to conduct using China’s space station,” said Simone

tta Di Pippo, director of the UNOOSA. “We have received more than 40 proposals before the deadline for sub

mission. We will announce the winners probably by the end of June after evaluation.” Di Pippo said these on the sideli

nes of the fourth China Space Day on April 24 to mark the anniversary of the country’s first satellite launch in 1970.

Moreover, Pakistan intends to send one of their astronauts to China’s space station by 2022, A

mer Nadeem, chairman of Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission in Pakistan, said after

the opening ceremony of China Space Day in Changsha, Hunan province, on Wednesday.

“Hopefully, the agreement on the matter will be signed very soon. We will select the candidates based on the agreement. Also, they

will come to China for some parts of the training,” Nadeem said. He added that Pakistan and China will furth

er enhance cooperation on several space projects focusing on satellite networks in future.

Fixed-asset investment growth was 6.3 percent in the first

 quarter, compared with 6.1 percent in the first two months, the National Bureau of Statistics reported.

As favorable policies are implemented at all levels of government in the sec

ond quarter, manufacturers will start seeing concrete financial benefits and industrial out

put is expected to at least maintain a steady expansion from April to June, said Qin H

ailin, a senior industrial economy researcher at the China Center for Information Industry Development.

At the news conference, ministry officials also denied market rumors that China’s telecom carrie

rs are slowing down their investments in 5G, the fifth-generation mobile communication technology.

They said 5G is recognized as a fundamental digital infrastructu

re for societal and economic development, but it will take time to build a nationwide 5G netw

ork. China’s plan is to roll out the superfast technology step by step, the officials said.

Piraeus Port is the largest port in Greece. On Aug 10, 2016, COSCO Shipping (Hong Kong) Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China COSC

O Shipping Group, became a controlling shareholder of the port and started operating the facility.

Around 290 million euros are expected to be invested by the company for the expansion of a crui

se terminal, improvement of a ship repair wharf and a new multi-storey garage of roll-on roll-off ship wharf.

The port, as an important meeting point of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Cent

ury Maritime Silk Road, has become one of the fastest-growing container ports in the world in recent years.

Under the joint operation of Chinese and Greek enterprises, the port’s infrastruct

ure conditions and operational capabilities have been greatly improved. The freight hub has become increas

ingly prominent, not only providing more jobs, but also promoting local economic development and be

coming a model of win-win cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative.

Third, there is a serious focus on education overall. Ove

 the past five years, China has built or expanded 260,000 primary and secondary schools, added 1.7 million teache

rs and increased the student body by 27.3 million. The Ministry of Education committed more resources last y

ear to poverty-stricken areas to ensure every child is able to attend school by 2020.

Beyond easing dire poverty in rural areas, China has an ongoing pa

rallel policy to build a moderately prosperous society by 2020, a crucial aspect of which is set

ting up a basic social security system. This has been done progressively since the 1980s.

China also has had several social insurance programs since the 1990s, covering unemployment, employment injury, mat

ernity, medical care and pension. The country subsequently embarked on a new and successful phase of so

cial security development to provide healthcare benefits to rural and nonworking urban residents.

Pan prepared each lesson very carefully. When I made teach

ng slides, I didn’t allow enough time for the transition between them, so Pan gently pointed

out how I should express myself when I changed slides so the students would understand more nat

urally. I was very impressed,” said Namgal, who like many Tibetans only uses one name.

Zhang Dazhong, her second mentor, taught her how to get the best results from th

e papers she assigned her students. Now, the average score for her class has jumped to second place in the grade.

“The Jiangsu teachers are all very nice and willing to tutor me. They all

have their own teaching techniques and tips that I always want to learn,” Namgal said.

In addition to providing teaching guidance, the Jiangsu teache

rs introduced a prestudy system. At the beginning of every semester, teachers of the

same subject sit together to analyze the textbooks and compile a document that outlines the key points of each lesson.

When the students read the document, they know what they should focus on and the problems they will be expected to solve in class.

The study shows that 40 out the 46 infants studied receive

nursing from one or more females other than their mothers. And 22 out of 46 infants were nursed by two or more females.

Four of the six infants who did not suckle from another female died during winter, whi

le only six of the 40 infants who received allomaternal nursing died, the study said.

Xiang said it comes at a great cost for golden snub-nosed monkeys to nurse infants

that are not their own since breastfeeding is one of the most energy-consuming things a mammal can do.

The behavior likely arose in close kinship-based groups in whic

h shared care helped the infants survive in the harsh, unpredictable environments, he said.

Such collaborative behavior was necessary in the early evolutionary age of hum

ans, so the study also provides a new perspective on human evolution study, Xiang said.

The Chinese government has never imposed any policy

 to force foreign companies to transfer their technology,” Gao added, sayi

ng that the country’s Foreign Investment Law bars forced technology transfers.

The newly passed law, approved this month and set to take effect in January, stipulates that China will treat foreign and Chi

nese enterprises equally and protect their intellectual property rights. Under the law, foreign enterprises will recei

ve pre-establishment national treatment, in addition to a negative list system for market access.

A negative list shows areas where investment i

s limited or prohibited for foreign investors, with all other areas presumed to be open.

Gao said the ministry is working with relevant de

partments to conduct research on shortening the negative list for market access.
