During the meeting, Sin上海品茶微信sed e-scooter sharing se

service provider Neuron Mobility signed an agreement with Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City Investment and Dev

上海品茶微信女神会所elopment Co, a joint venture operator, to set up a smart urban mobility innovation center in the knowle

dge city to support its research and development activities as well as global operations.

The innovation center project also involves a third partner, Ascendas Onehub GKC, wh上海品茶微信

ich runs about 600,000 square meters of residential and commercial floor space in SSGKC.

上海品茶微信女神会所According to the agreement, Neuron plans to launch the pilot project in SSG

KC to test out transportation solutions to the “last mile” problem in China.

The so-called last mile issue refers to a common concern of metro commuters, afte上海品茶微信女神会所

r they get out of a subway exit and face walking the last stretch to their offices.

上海品茶微信Also on the same site, the SSGKC Administrative Committee signed an importa

nt agreement with the SSGKC Investment and Development Co to carry out a three-year training program.

This aims to learn from Singapore’s advanced experience and successful practi上海品茶微信女神会所

上海品茶微信ces, to train top professionals for the knowledge city and for Huangpu district, where SSGKC is located.

Dynamic, high-value city

“SSGKC has developed into a knowledge economy center driven by innovation with glob上海品茶微信

al competitiveness and a desirable place to work and live,” a leading official of the city said.

上海品茶微信女神会所Located in the core area of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, SSGKC is 25 kilometers from Gua

ngzhou Baiyun International Airport and almost 35 km from downtown Guangzhou, Guangdong’s capital.

Besides the completion of a subway network linking SSGKC to th上海品茶微信

e rest of Guangzhou by the end of this year, in the future the area will also be connected to othe

r cities and provinces by eight rail lines, five roads and seven urban expressways.上海品茶微信女神会所

“We have favorable locations, a strong research institute, a State-leve

l pilot zone for IP protection and improved transportation network and efficient op上海品茶微信

erations, which ensure SSGKC will be an ideal destination for investment,” the official added.

上海品茶微信女神会所SSGKC is designed to cover a total greenfield area of 123 sq km. But ab

out half of the area has been earmarked for urban use, during the 15 to 20 year devel

opment period from the 2010 ground-breaking ceremony, while the other half will be preserved as green spaces.

Fujian aims to devel上海419论坛op cruise industry

Xiamen International Cruise Home Port in East China’s Fujian province has registered a record

上海419论坛number of passengers passing through in the first of the year – 185,000, a 36 percent year-on-year increase.

Superstar Gemini, operated by Xiamen port partner Star Cruises上海419论坛女神会所

, has berthed at the port’s Dongdu International Cruise Terminal for its 17th operation since May.

上海419论坛Having hosted over 3,500 passengers this year, it is expected

to have 70 operations this year, marking its longest cruise season in history.

“We’ve seen the cruise tour boom this year because we have deve上海419论坛女神会所

loped a Spring Festival season cruise, and cruise services to Taiwan reopened this May.

上海419论坛”Meanwhile the Belt and Road course is growing popul

ar among tourists thanks to the geographical advantage of our port,” said

Yang Lili, deputy general manager of Xiamen International Cruise Home Port Group.上海419论坛女神会所

In early April the reconstruction of Xiamen International Cruises’ berths was completed.

上海419论坛The total length is over 1,400 meters, including a 150,000-ton, two

80,000-ton and a 3,000-ton berths which can simultaneously accommodate three or fou

r medium and large cruise ships – including the world’s largest 225,000-ton cruise ship.上海419论坛女神会所

“After the reconstruction, the entire cruise service has been greatly improved. The fir

上海419论坛st Chinese-funded cruise ship, Gulangyu, will come into service in September.

“A 130,000-ton ship named Glory will also be brought into o

peration in Xiamen, marking a new area of giant cruises,” Yang Lili said.上海419论坛女神会所

The provincial government also rolled out a scheme this May to spur cruise ship growth by 2035, with

the aim of establishing a preliminary layout of harbors and shipping lines.上海419论坛女神会所

It is hoped the move will provide for a sustainable, secure and reliable emergency system.

ese law enforcement of上海千花坊atian colleagues on

hinese tourists in Croatia will be in for a surprise

when they see police from their homeland patrolling the streets this summer.上海千花坊品茶微信

For the second year running, Chinese law enforcement officers will be jo

上海千花坊ining their fellow professionals in the popular Balkan tourist destination on the streets of the

capital Zagreb, the historic walled city of Dubrovnik, tourist resort Zadar and Croatia’s biggest county, Lika-Senj.

Croatia has been running the Safe Tourism Season project since 2006 when officers from Hungary became the first forei上海千花坊品茶微信

gn law enforcement officials invited to take part. Since then, more than 800 officers from 19 countries have come to assis

上海千花坊品茶微信t their Croatian counterparts at the height of the tourist season, undergoing special localized training before starting patrols.

In addition to the helpful presence of fellow Chinese officers on the s

treets, Chinese tourists will also be able to benefit from special telephone support line

s set up in the regions where the visiting police are deployed, with compatriots answering calls.上海千花坊

In 2018, there were six officers from China and this year there will be eight.

上海千花坊品茶微信Croatia, which was part of the former Yugoslavia, is proving an increasingly popular destination for Chinese visitors.

In the first half, there has been a 53 percent year-on-year rise in the number of Chinese vis

itors to the ancient Roman port of Split, and a 20 percent increase in numbers going to Zagreb.上海千花坊

“Chinese tourists are mostly interested in historical and cultural monume

上海千花坊nts and sightseeing,” said Zagreb Tourist Board spokeswoman Darja Dragoje.

International police organization Interpol has praised the Safe Tourism Season initiative as an example of the be

st international police practice, and China’s ambassador in Zagreb, Xu Erwen, said the inclusion of Chinese po上海千花坊品茶微信

lice in the project confirms the two countries’ traditional friendship and cooperation.上海千花坊

A generation on from the brutal war that broke out in the aftermath of the collapse of the for

Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou

ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊

hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.

上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the

Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou

nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co

上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.

“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i

dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊

uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”

上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy

mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co

nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v

iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所

“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu

上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in

ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c

ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee

l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所

Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’

s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De

上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and

orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.

Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.

Nation’s NEV industry t 上海会所o accelerate development

The Chinese authorities’ ramped-up efforts to promote high-qualit

y development in the new energy vehicle sector, reflected by the most recent re 上海会所品茶微信

lease of an updated list on NEVs to enjoy exemptions of vehicle and vessel tax, will further help boost the healthy de

 上海会所velopment of the sector and also promote clean energy consumption, industry insiders said.

The vehicle and vessel tax, paid annually by car or ship owners, varies between hundre 上海会所

ds of yuan to thousands of yuan, depending on engine sizes and the capacity of vehicles or ships.

 上海会所品茶微信According to the latest list of NEVs and small engine vehicles to enjoy vehicle and vessel tax cu

ts that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued recently on its website, vehicle and ve

ssel tax will be slashed completely for 444 types of NEVs and halved for 72 types of energy-saving vehicles. 上海会所

Moreover, the list has extended tax cuts to more NEVs compared with the previous list, and

 上海会所品茶微信makes higher requirements on the performance of the NEVs to be included, such as lower power co

nsumption per 100 kilometers, the increased energy density of battery packs, and a higher cruising range, a

cording to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association. 上海会所品茶微信

“The new list mirrors the progress of China’s NEVs, especially in key perfo

 上海会所rmance indicators, and such progress is driven by incentives from the Chinese authorities,” Cui said.

“It is obvious Chinese NEVs have been making remarkable progress in high-quality development, and this will continue.”

The Chinese authorities announced cuts in vehicle and vessel tax on vehicles and ships that use new energy or engines 上海会所品茶微信

smaller than 1.6 liters as early as in 2012 and 2015, in a bid to save energy and combat pollution.

Unlike the moon, which上海夜生活phere, or Mercury an

y and Pluto, which have very thin atmospheres, Mars has an atmosphere composed mainly of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. It is unfit for human survival, but

there is the possibility of transforming the carbon dioxide into oxygen with green plants.上海夜生活品茶微信

And unlike Venus, which has a similar atmosphere, Mars has liquid water, as detected in June 2018. The water is kilome

上海夜生活ters underground, but human inhabitants can pump it out with engineering devices. There are even M

artian maps that make scientists believe there used to be rivers on the surface of the planet.上海夜生活

With all the advantages, Mars has already become the next destination for human space exploration. China’s Ma

rs mission comes at a good time and we hope China can play its part in getting humans to our neighboring planet.上海夜生活品茶微信

While industrial robots have become a common sight in factories across

eastern China, the country’s agriculture sector is seen by some as a place where few techn

上海夜生活ologies can take root, due to the high cost and sophisticated natural environment involved in growing food.

But a research institute and a startup based in Fuzhou, capital of East China’s Fujian pro

vince, are determined to change the perception by jointly developing an agricultural robot.上海夜生活品茶微信

The white, 5G-enabled, sensor-rich agricultural robot can move between two rows o

f leafy greens in a greenhouse, collect data about the plants, and feed it back to the control room.

上海夜生活Developed by Fujian Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Fujian Newl

and Era Hi-Tech Co Ltd, the robot is part of their efforts to build an autonomous running farm.

Different from industrial plants where robots can follow preset routes上海夜生活品茶微信

and do fixed jobs such as feeding standardized electronic parts, agricultural env

上海夜生活ironments are far more complex, said Zhao Jian, deputy head of the digital agriculture institute of FAAS.

“Farm robots also have to adapt to a wide variety of highly differentiated crops, livestock and aquatic products,” said Zhao.

To solve the challenges, the research institute and Newland have jointly develop上海夜生活品茶微信

ed a more sophisticated artificial intelligence system. Computer algorithms as well as the hardware for pos

itioning, map construction, route design and avoiding obstacles have all been optimized to suit the agricultural envi

ronment, taking into consideration fertilization, watering the plants, bumpy roads and other natural factors.

For the US, instead of b上海后花园 military muscles of Ta

iwan, the sales of arms send the wrong message to the secessionis

ts, encouraging them to go further on the road of seeking independence. As a res上海后花园女神会所

ult, the arms sales are anything but a move to stabilize the situation across the Taiwan Straits.

With the current trade frictions between the US and China, what is badly n上海后花园

eeded is more political trust between the two economic heavyweights. Arms sales to t

he island are not only incompatible with the spirit of the three joint communiqués Beijing and Washington signed for the esta

上海后花园女神会所blishment of diplomatic relations, but also set new stumbling blocks in the way of building mutual political trust.

More tension and worsening relations across the Taiwan Straits are not in the interests of the US. Its meddling in the internal af上海后花园

fairs of China in whatever form will only increase the possibility of the mainland resorting to whatever m

eans necessary to realize the final reunification of the island with the motherland.上海后花园女神会所

The US should not hope to see and will not be able to do anything to prevent that scenario from becoming a reality.

上海后花园The best choice for the US is to stay away from Taiwan affairs.

Ouyang Ziyuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that China will launch a mission to Mars with M

artian satellite, Martian lander, as well as Martian rover. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:上海后花园女神会所

In his speech, Ouyang mentioned that one of the main purposes of the

probe is to determine if the planet is suitable for terraforming so humans can inhabit it.上海后花园

For some, his words may sound like science fiction. It remains a fact t

hat only about 400 people in the whole of human history have ever ventured into space. Of th

em, only 12 astronauts have left their steps on the moon, the nearest celestial body to our Earth.

No human has been to Mars yet. SpaceX has an ambitious plan to set up a human colony on the Red Planet, but NASA’s ex

isting plan to get humans to the planet seems to have been kiboshed by funding constraints.

China has now thrown its hat into the ring.

While it might be some time in the future, the good news is, once humankind inh

abits Mars and starts to terraform it, the planet’s potential can be fully exploited and its rich supply of resources can p

rovide ample support for human kind’s further development and exploration of the planet.

China’s prospects for copi上海千花坊anctions – whic

 the US administration is likely to use more often – are not so bright. Last month, a US judge found three large Ch

inese banks in contempt of court for refusing to produce evidence for an investigation into violations of sanctions aga上海千花坊

inst the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The ruling ignores the fact that, according to Chinese law, any request for ba

上海千花坊品茶微信nking records should be handled in accordance with the US-China mutual legal assistance agreement.

Chinese financial institutions thus need to prepare for more troubles, including the risk of being blacklisted – that is, deprived of the right to u

se the US dollar and important services, such as the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication financial m上海千花坊

essaging service and the Clearing House Interbank Payments System. It is a punishment few companies can survive.

上海千花坊品茶微信Already, one Chinese bank has been included on the Correspondent Account or Payable-Through Acc

Make more efforts to internationalize yuan上海千花坊

The Chinese government has few options here, but it can step up legislative efforts to protect Chinese banks’ interests, while encour

上海千花坊品茶微信aging Chinese financial institutions to treat compliance with US financial regulations with the utmost c

are. It should also continue working to internationalize the yuan, as there is still a long way to go on this front.

China remains committed to its 40-year-old process of reform and opening-up. Today, that process must focus on redoub

ling efforts to strengthen intellectual property rights protection, adhering to competitive neutrality and de上海千花坊品茶微信

fending multilateralism. But following through on this commitment will require China to find ways to manage escalating ten

上海千花坊sions with the US and avoid a costly – and potentially devastating – reconfiguration of the global economy.

In 2017, Tianhe district issued a series of supportive policies to boost cultural and technological innovation there.

Every year, a specialized fund is used to support key cultural fields, including digital cont

The cultural and creative companies can get stipends of up to 500,000 yuan, it said.

“Tianhe district is open and inclusive enough to develop the cultural and creative industry,” Mao said.
