China has also recently announced a strengthened reg

gime of intellectual property rights protection. Again, this is what foreign negotiat

ors are seeking, but also is important for China’s own economy as it transitions to being a technology leader.

Trade agreements can affect the types of goods being traded and they can redirect trade toward one c

ountry, away from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account bal

ance. A country that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gov

ernment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.

Meanwhile, China is willing to jointly promote the mo

nitoring and evaluation of Arctic climate and environmental changes, develop platforms for po

lar scientific research, and promote the sharing of Arctic observation data and international work pr

ojects, Wang said during the Arctic Circle China Forum in Shanghai on Friday.

“We look forward to working with other countries to smooth the economic channel that conn

d’ to facilitate connectivity and sustainable economic and social development of the Arctic,” he said.

Wang said that Arctic affairs, especially those regarding climate c

hange, environmental protection, scientific research and the use of waterways, are closel

Cambodia is working with China to launch our first

 satellite in 2021, so the (Cambodian) government hoped that someone could learn something abo

ut spacecraft. But there is no school in Cambodia that teaches such a thing. So here I am,” Chea said.

China has signed an agreement with Cambodia to develop, make and launch the Southeastern Asian nation’s first sat

ellite in the next few years. The satellite, Techo 1, will be used for communications.

Moreno Pena, on the other hand, has 11 years’ experience at the Bolivarian Agency for Space Activities, Venezuela’s sp

ace organization, as an electrical engineer and chief of the spacecraft operation unit.

This is the second time he has come to China as a student. The first time w

as in 2007, when he was selected to take part in satellite application training in Beijing.

He said he came to China this time hoping to expan

d his knowhow on spacecraft and learn how to design and build satellites.

In addition, the institute will invite foreign experts

to give lectures to the students to provide access to new developments in the international space sector.

“We want to make sure that they will be able to design satellites when they complete their study here and go back to their countries,” Cui said.

He added that compared with their Chinese peers, the foreign

students are more active in class and are better at asking questions and sharing their thoughts.

The foreign students will choose either remote sensing or comm

unications satellites as the topic for individual research at the Shenzhou Institute, Cui s

aid, adding that their choice will depend on what they will do in their homeland after the program.

Wang Jie, the mentor of the eight-student class, said that in addition to professional knowledge

and on-site tours, the institute also arranges lectures on Chinese language and culture for the foreign s

tudents and takes them to such historical sites as the Forbidden City and Summer Palace.

As the state was looking for innovative ways to tackle

 the Asian carp problem, Kentucky awarded Yu its first-ever fish house contract in fall last year. Under the deal, Yu’s Kentucky Fish

Center will buy Asian carp at a guaranteed price, with part of this coming from a government subsidy.

All fish at the center will be sold by auction to buyers in the US or overseas. S

ales will be overseen by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Kentucky provided a secured $734,000 fixed-assets loan to help the center begin oper

ating. Additional incentives will be awarded every year based on performance.

The center needs to reach certain goals: to remove 2.26 million kg of Asian

carp from Kentucky waters this year and increase that amount gradually to just ov

er 9 million kg annually by 2024. If those goals are met, the loan will be waived.

The entire program will cost Kentucky about $4 million.
