Special trains connecting Xinjiang with major tourist are

areas such as the cities of Beijing, Dalian and Qingdao will be launched during the coming summer vacation, which usually spans June to August.

In the second half of the year, more trains for tourists will go into operation, linking the region to the Guangdong-Hong K

Huawei CEO addresses US ban, 5G and users’ rights

Ren said in an interview with Chinese media in Shenzhen on Tuesday that “We are very grateful to the

US companies. They have made a lot of contributions to us. Many of our consultants are from American companies such as IBM.

“We can make chips as good as those made by US companies, but it does not mean that we will not buy chips from them,” Ren added.

He said the company will not exclude US chips. “Instead, we should grow together. But if there is a

supply shortage, we have a backup. In the “peace period”, half of our chips are from the US companies and half

from Huawei. We cannot be isolated from the world.”Ren also highlighted that Huawei’s 5G plan will not be affected by

the US ban. “Others will definitely not be able to catch up with Huawei in 5G technologies for two or three years,” he said.

Lee Byong-hyun, chairman of the executive board of UNE

said at the session’s opening ceremony that multilateral cooperation is crucial in tackling local, regional and global issues.

“My experience has taught me that the key for the success of international cooperation is dialog

ue,” he said. “This requires being curious about others, willing to open up and ready to listen with real engagement.”

Chen Baosheng, minister of education, said civilizations are enriched by exchanges, in which people learn from each other.

“To promote the world’s peaceful development, we need to see more and think more in light of protecting diverse Asian civiliza

tions. It’s encouraging to hold a more inclusive and modest attitude about equal dialogue among Asian civilizations.

“We need to keep the principle of amity, sincerity, mutual benefits and inclusive

ness in mind to make the dialogue among Asian civilizations an inspiration to the world an

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.

A woman gets it into her head that she can never be too th

Zhang Xin, associate professor at the School of Psychological and Cognitive Science at Peking Uni

versity in Beijing, believes “fat talk” may be a way of expressing that “we all share feelings of insecu

rity”.In China, “fat” has become a word that women will do almost anything to avoid being associated with. This is not surpris

ing, given that being slim as a beauty ideal has become the subject of countless newspaper stories, TV comm

ercials and movies, resulting in the almost universal correlation between a slim figure and beauty.

“Women are more likely than men to enjoy chatting with their

peers about weight concerns and body issues, and this ma

y release them from pressure over their weight and serve as a way to bond with their friends,” he said.

But “fat talk” is a double-edged sword. While it may seem a harmless way to ease dissatisfact

ion over body shape by gaining reassurance within a peer group, it can also serve to reinforce negative feelings.

Paul Tapponnier, a distinguished research professor at the

 administration’s Institute of Crustal Dynamics, said he “wholeheartedly” welcomes the project. China boasts unique

conditions to carry out the experiment as most of its earthquakes occur “inside the land under the feet of th

e people” rather than in the ocean, and there are many active faults in the country.

“My personal hope is that if there is any way or any future in trying

to forecast earthquakes, it may very well happen in C

hina,” said Tapponnier, also foreign associate member of the United States’ National Academy of Sciences.

According to the administration, the country is stricken by an average 20 earthqua

kes above magnitude 5 every year. There is an earthquake above magnitude 8 every decade. Since the turn of

the new millennium, more than 91,800 people have been killed by earthquakes in the country.

tariff hike against China: Intl responseses on Friday

The United States on Friday raised tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent.

Here is a collection of comments on the tariff hike from analysts and business professionals from around the world.

Rene Pastor, foreign editor, China Daily

Global trade is not a zero-sum game of who gets the most benefits. The decision by President Donald Trump to up the ante in a tra

de dispute by slapping tariffs invites retaliation, as China has threatened to do, and damages a global tra

ding system that in all honesty has lifted all boats in the decades following World War II.

Countries should resist the temptation to treat global trade as purely the aren

a of winners and losers. The idea is to keep talking with the full knowledge that any co

untry, any trading power, will win some and lose some in those negotiations. The consequences and less

ons of history are clear when trade degenerates into a winner-take-all mentality, as was the case during the tim

e of the Great Depression in the 1920s. Everybody lost. We just cannot afford a repeat of that episode in our history.

The legacy plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Winter G

ames was unveiled in February. Plans aim to optimize the venues’ designs and operations to be beneficial to the hosting regions after 2022.

“Here, you have the venues from 2008 that are going to be used

in 2022 for a complete set of winter sports. This is a wonderful legacy story,” said Juan Anto

nio Samaranch, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee.

Powering all the 2022 venues using green energy while minimizing environmental impacts, while p

lanning for their post-Games operations, are key in venue preparation this year, Liu said.

To support the preparations financially, Beijing 2022 has signed nine domestic marketing partners and four second-tier spon

sors, while the Games’ licensing program, which was launched early last year, has contributed 257 million yuan ($38

million) in sales of more than 780 types of products with the Winter Games logo as of the first quarter this year.

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.
