For example, in March, China provided a remote-sens

sing monitor report on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and

terrain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun se

ries of meteorological satellites as a major element of its global Earth observation system.

Intensified law enforcement also benefits overseas ent

erprises in China. Last year, intellectual property authorities punished violators in more

than 6,000 cases of infringing on rights of trademark registrants from overseas, with a t

The reform and opening-up policies are exactly the ki

inds of market-driven reforms needed to make this happen. The Chinese government is investing heavily in resear

ch and development, but it should be noted that the R&D spending as a percentage of GDP is still lower than that of the US.

Nobody likes competition against themselves. So, it must be admitted that China’s transition to a high-tech, high-

value-added economy will come as a shock to many companies around the world. The US economy, which has about 7

percent of GDP in high-tech manufacturing, will be lightly affected by this change.

On the other hand, advanced manufacturing contributes around 20 percent of GDP in Sout

h Korea, Japan, Germany and a few smaller European countries. They will be much more directly affected.

Investigators criticize lax management, failure to control enterovirus outbreak

Liu Ruilin, Party secretary and president of Shunde Hospital of Southern Medical University, has been

An investigation determined that the case became serious because

of the combination of the intestinal virus with lax hospital management.

Last year, there were 150 million people 60 years or abo

above living with chronic diseases in China. Of those, 44 million

were fully or partially disabled and in need of regular nursing services, she said.

“With more nurses and nurse’s aides, the demand for nursing services from the elderly will be gradually met,” she said.

The commission will also encourage community health centers to provide more nursin

g services for the elderly in neighborhoods, Jiao said. They would include more beds and setting up day-care centers.

Regulations will also be released to encourage community health centers to pro

vide beds to the elderly at home, so family doctors can provide treatment there, she said.

“The disabled, whether fully or partial, will be the priority in nursing services,” Jiao sa

id. “We will release a detailed standard for evaluating nursing services for the disabled elderly

As President Xi has said, the initiative originated from

China, but it belongs to the world. China has put forward the idea of boosting global development vi

a infrastructure connectivity, and is working zealously to translate it into reality. This is based on wha

t the country learned from its own rags-to-riches story, its own experience of the benefits of free trade and inte

rnational cooperation, and on its understanding of the role a responsible major country must play.

The forum’s growing list of distinguished guests is credible testimo

ny that more and more countries appreciate the initiative‘s win-win nature and long-term pote

ntial. With 126 countries and 29 international organizations signing cooperation agreements with China und

er the Belt and Road framework, and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank now boasting 97 members, it is m

ore appropriate to call the initiative a global development mechanism than a Chinese one.

Tu Liangcheng, one of the leading scientists of the Tia

nqin project, said that the project has been going smoothly.

“So far nearly 200 Chinese scientists from more than 30 dome

stic research institutions and universities and about 30 researchers from at l

east eight other countries-including Russia, Italy, Germany and France-have participated in the pr

oject,” said Tu, who is also director of the gravitation center at the Wuhan university.

Shen Zhiqiang, head of the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, and a membe

r of the EHT team, said the success of the first black hole image has encouraged Chinese scientists to engage in mo

re international collaboration and boost the country’s ability in studying deep space.

Chinese scientists participated in Hawaii and Spain in the observations

that yielded the black hole image. They were highly involved in follow-up data analysis and th

eoretical explanation throughout the two years that followed the five-day observations in April 2017.

May asks for Brexit extension to June 30; EU could of

British Prime Minister Theresa May wrote to Brussels on Friday asking for a delay of Brexit until up to June 30, while saying she

aims to get Britain out of the EU earlier to avoid it participating in European elections.

But Donald Tusk, who chairs EU summits, has proposed a longer Brexit postpone

ment of one year for Britain‘s feuding politicians to agree and ratify a plan, EU officials said.

Any such extension would still require unanimous approval of the other 27 EU countrie

s and some, notably France, suggested they wanted a better justification from London for its request.

Britain is now due to leave the EU in a week, but May has been forced to seek mo

re time after Britain’s parliament repeatedly rejected her withdrawal agreement.

Her Conservative Party is deeply divided, as is the main opposition Labou

r Party, leading to a bewildering marathon of inconclusive votes in parliament that stretch

ed Britain’s centuries-old unwritten constitution to its limits. Scenarios running the gamut from aba

ndoning the EU abruptly with no deal to cancelling Brexit altogether have all gone down to defeat.
