Indeed, Premier Li Keqiang, who led China’s negotiati

tions at the Brussels summit, has pledged to intensify discussions on the rules concerning in

dustrial subsidies, a priority for the WTO reform for the EU. This is being seen as a breakthrough by the EU side.

In fact, almost all countries provide subsidies for domestic companies in certain sectors, and i

n most cases, China has given subsidies to Chinese companies in strict accordance with WTO rules as its ultim

ate goal is to achieve complete marketization. Yet intensifying discussions on industrial subsidies and other

sensitive issues, including intellectual property rights protection, is a step that must be taken to not only addre

ss WTO members’ concerns, but also invigorate the organization and the global trading system.

China, US should jointly promote WTO reform

Chen Fengying, a senior researcher in world economy at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations

The Office of the United States Trade Representative seems to have made dr

iving the WTO reform its priority so that Washington can claim the discourse rights in global t

rade mechanisms and lead the process for making new trade rules and establishing a new global trading system.

As one of the most recognized movie events in Chin

ina, the festival-which will be held through April 20-recently announced 15 nominated fil

ms, including The Composer, which will contend for the festival’s top honor, the Tiantan Award.

Inspired by a speech made by President Xi Jinping during his v

isit to Kazakhstan in 2013, the film looks back at the life of Xian, a music

ian who was once a household name and best known for his epic work, Yellow River Cantata.

When the Great Patriotic War (the Soviet Union’s defensive war again

st the invasion of Nazi Germany) broke out in 1941, Xian-who was assigned by the Commu

nist Party of China to work in Moscow-found himself stranded in Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan.

With the help of Kazakh musician Bakhytzhan Baikadamov and his family, Xian spent his final years living out the war in K

azakhstan, where he concentrated on writing music. In early 1945, the musician who was suffering fro

m multiple diseases was sent back to Moscow, where he died in a local hospital on Oct 30 the same year.

Baoxun pays 1,550 yuan for each ton of sludge it sends

to qualified waste disposal operators. But it only paid 300 yuan per ton to individuals

who carted it away to carry out unauthorized disposals, Xinhua News Agency reported.

Qiu, the environmental official, also acknowledged that capac

ity for authorized hazardous waste treatment is unevenly distributed across the country and enterp

rises in areas with inadequate capacity could be dissuaded from lawful practices by high disposal costs.

“The country‘s complete industry chain means that we

generate a large variety of hazardous waste. The treatment is technically demand

ing and it can be hard for some regions to have the capacity to handle all types of hazardous waste,” he said.

Wang said most companies with treatment licenses are located in the Yangtze a

nd Pearl river deltas. The treatment capacity in regions with high discharge of hazardous waste, including Shand

ong, Henan and Hunan provinces and the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, however, remains insufficient.

Moreover, “green travel”, that is, maximum use of public

transport, should also be encouraged.Yet travel safety is one thing that is more often than not ignored. Media reports publicize tourist s

pots, especially before and during long holidays, while traffic safety education is rare, which is a pity bec

ause traffic safety education and proper traffic management can prevent accidents.

Beijing said on Thursday that the United States sending acting military serviceman to Taiwan un

Artificial intelligence will bring about changes as fundamental as t

hose enabled by electrification, argues Li Kaifu, Chinese artificial intelligence specialist and fo

under of the venture capital firm Sinovation Ventures. He says that China is leading in real-world applications of AI to bus

Li’s technological optimism contrasts with a widespread pessi

mism about technology prevalent among thinkers from Silicon Valley.

For example, famed venture capitalist Peter Theil uses the slogan “We wanted flying cars, ins

tead we got 140 characters” as the subtitle of his investment fund. In many interviews, he ha

s explained that we’ve seen “innovation in the world of bits, but not in the world of atoms”.

out of the Barcelona airport, there’s a Huawei hospitality stand. The company’s bran

ding dots the city. The lanyards conference attendees wear around their necks are decorated with the Huawei name.

  There’s a good reason everyone is focused on Huawei, one of the world’s largest makers of telecom equipment.

  Huawei is a crucial part of China’s efforts to advance superfast 5G wir

eless networks and today is caught in a life or death battle with the US government.

  The United States claims that Huawei poses a potential national security threat. Last month, US prosecutors revealed cri

minal charges against the company, alleging that Huawei stole trade secrets and worked to skirt US sanctions on Iran.
