industrial internet and the internet of vehicles are am

ong the country’s top development priorities in the telecommuni

cations industry,” Zhang Feng, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Te

chnology, said on Friday during the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.

Zhang called for accelerated efforts to set standards in key areas, including 5G, to expedit

e the commercialization of this forefront technology and bolster the nation’s core competitiveness.

Major Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies Co has a

lready unveiled its first 5G chip and first 5G foldable smartphone, the Mate X, which is

expected to hit the market in June, despite challenges involving the United States.

Also on Friday, shortly after the US said it would ban Huawei from buying US t

echnology without special approval, Huawei’s chipmaking arm, HiSilicon, said

The phone call took place days after the US Commerce Dep

artment announced on Wednesday it will add telecommunications eq

uipment maker Huawei and its affiliates to the Entity List on Wednesday. Being on the list

bars the company from buying US technology without government approval due to security concerns.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bars US companies fr

om using telecom equipment from manufacturers considered a national security risk, without mentioning Huawei by name.

Such moves, as well as the increase of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods earlier this m

onth, complicated the prospect of continuing the bilateral trade talks that have been ongoing for more than a year.

China has always believed in and hoped to solve trade differences thr

ough talks, but such talks should be equal, Wang said. In any talks, China must protect its legitim

The report was based on an experimental survey condu

cted by the China Consumer Association from December to March, which included mor

e than 1,700 students from elementary, junior high and senior high school.

According to the report, most elementary school students were first exposed t

o the internet in third grade, and these 9-year-old students accounted for 32.2 percent of th

e total. For junior high school students, most had their first online experience at the age of 12 years in grade six, a

nd these students comprised 21.7 percent. Among high school students, the peak period to access the internet fell duri

ng their first year in junior high school, with these 13-year-olds representing 19.4 percent.

The report shows over 90 percent of teenagers use electronic devices for study or playing game

s every week. What deserves attention is that the percentage of inevitable exposure to electronic devi

ces among elementary school students is significantly higher than that of the other two groups.

The downward trend will linger in the first half of th

f the year until July or August, when the market may see a recovery, Xu Haidong, assistant to

the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers’ secretary-general, told the newspaper.

The reason for the slowdown in China’s automotive market lies in the lack of consumer confidence, according to CA

AM. In addition, the upcoming stricter Nation VI emission standards, market expectation for the country’s stimulating spe

nding policy and a strong wait-and-see mood, are all contributing to the bleak picture, the association said.

With the actual policy effects from tax cuts and fees reduction

s, a promising consumer market boosted by infrastructure investment, the country’s a

utomobile market will have a stable development throughout the year, said the association.

To encourage them to move, Guizhou authorities have used a better schooling for their children as bait,” said Zhang Qing of Guizhou’s provincial Education Department.

“More than 130,000 children will be enrolled in the 1,600 preschool facilities and primary and secondary schools near their urban s

ettlements. Also, 333 nurseries and junior high schools will be built to enroll some 50,000 relocated children,” Zhang added.

To promote educational development and cultivate more high-quality teachers in the country’s central and w

estern regions, China launched a State-level training program for rural primary and middle school teachers in 2010.

Primary school teachers in Guizhou have joined the training at Beijing Normal University.

In September 2014, President Xi Jinping met with teachers from Guizhou who were r

eceiving training at Beijing Normal University. The group of teachers later wrote a letter to Xi.

In a letter of reply to the Guizhou teachers, Xi asked them to lead education reform in poor areas.

This is a predicament for soy growers,” American

American Soybean Association President Davie Stephens said on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump threatened in a tweet on Sunday to increase tariffs.

Stephens, a grower from Clinton, Kentucky, said that US farmers are in a tough situation, and with depressed prices

and unsold stocks forecast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, farmers urgently need the China market.

“We need a positive resolution of this ongoing tariff dispute, not further escalation of tensions,” he said in a release posted on the ASA web site.

Nicole Kaeding, vice-president of federal and special projects at the Washington-based Tax Foun

dation, said that if the Trump administration follows through on the president’s threat, it’s US taxp

ayers, not Chinese taxpayers, who will pay the price — thanks to higher prices and fewer job opportunities.

The glazed tiles on the top of the China Pavilion ar

 in fact a type of aluminum alloy that can be used to imitate the shape

of traditional Chinese architecture at a low cost. It is an example of how modern technology is app

lied at the exhibition,” Li Liang, a designer of the pavilion, was quoted by Beijing Daily as saying.

By installing rainwater collection devices on the roofs and tanks beneath the pavilio

n, a mini ecological circulation has been created by gathering rainwater to irrigate the terraced fields.

Shen Yanyan, who came with her family from Jiangxi province for a visit, said that

although she didn’t know much about design, she felt the building was “very cool”.

“We saw its shiny roof upon entry to the park and we were immediately attracted,” said the 33-year-old. “The Ch

ina Pavilion is not only beautiful outside, but also inside. My mother is very happy to see flowers from so many pro

vinces and regions of the country, and all are well-trimmed and placed in the pavilion’s exhibition halls.”
