The industrial internet, education and medical care are ou

r priorities in upgrading internet services in order to boost industrial development, improve acc

net traffic between the mainland and Hong Kong and Macao by 30 percent. A “floor-price” rate will be set for low-income and elderly populations.

Basic telecommunication service providers will be urged to ensure that cellphone users n

ationwide can switch service carriers without changing phone numbers by the end of November, and any e

xtra term required for this service will be looked into. These companies will also be urged to straighten out their service pa

ckages to trim the packages available by more than 15 percent within this year, bringing more benefits to consumers.

We don’t know why regulators are taking different approaches

  The MAX 8 was unveiled to great fanfare little over two years ago, but passengers ar

ound the world are now asking if the planes are safe after they were involved in two tragedies in less than six months.

  On Monday, Boeing said it has no “basis to issue new guidance to operators.”

  But several countries have taken the decision out of their hands, grounding the 737 MAX 8 or th

e whole MAX range to carry out additional safety checks and await developments in the investigation.

  On the other hand, most airlines in the US have said they are still confident in the model,

and the Federal Aviation Administration has not yet taken action. Several American airlines have the plane in th

eir fleet, including Southwest, which has more MAX 8s than any carrier other in the world.

  ”We remain confident in the safety and airworthiness of our fleet of more than 750 Boeing aircraft,” Southwest said in a statement sent to CNN on Monday.

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”

Based on what we know about the North Koreans and

  their negotiating style, they always come to the table well-prepared and they always follow protocol. Above all else, they value the dignity of their Supreme Lea

der. Kim’s delegation must have been mortified by what could be perceived as a humiliating loss of face,” he added.

  ”Not only did the US President walk out of the talks, he also snubbe

d the final meal they were supposed to share together. The table was set and menu pr

epared for what should’ve been a friendly working lunch ahead of the scheduled joint signing ceremony. In

stead the snow fish and banoffee pie turned cold and the table sat empty — a symbol of the wasted opportunity in Hanoi.”

  Another get together ‘before too long’

  Pompeo said that he believes working level negotiators will get together “before too long,” b

ut added that both sides need to regroup and that there would need to be a reason to meet.

  ”Look, there has to be a reason for the conversations. There has to be a theory of th

e case about how to move forward. I’m confident that there is one,” Pompeo said.

  Joel Witt, director of the Stimson Center website 38 North, which monitors North Korea, said “I’m not sure where it goes from here.”

Last week US President Donald Trump said that Washing

ton wants to catch up in the 5G race through competition and thus won’t seek to block com

panies, including Huawei, from the United States’ 5G market on the pretext of security concerns.

This may be encouraging news. But it’s no use just paying lip service to

fair competition in the telecom sector while the US delegation to the world’s biggest mo

bile industry trade fair that opened in Barcelona, Spain, on Monday continued its smear campaign against Huawei by tryin

g to persuade telecom executives from other countries not to use the Chinese company’s products.

What the US has done for the past year or so in a desperate bid to maintain its supremacy in the high-tech field is grossly

unbecoming of a superpower. It is essentially wielding its national power to contain China’s rise in the high-tech field — p

erhaps because it is perturbed by a number of Chinese companies that have come to the fore on the world stage.

However, the United States’ wheeler-dealer like attitude and actions will not only inflict pain on Ch

ina but also cause damage to the high-tech and telecom sectors in the US as well as the rest of the world.

To begin with, given that the world economy is closely intertwined due to globalization, which some countries includ

ing the US now vehemently oppose, any action against China’s tech giants is bound to cause a chain reaction — de

aling a blow to their suppliers, clients, consumers and other parties involved no matter which part of the wo

rld they are based. Regardless of the inner workings of modern economics, any undue action taken against China’s te

ch giants could cause havoc for a number of global enterprises and hurt the interests of many countries.
