be why despite the US government blacklisting Huawei, Re

Ren on Tuesday expressed continued willingness to collaborate with US partners in the future.

Ren’s confidence lies in Huawei’s capacity to serve its customer

s under “any circumstances”, and has the support of its growing clientele at home and abroad.

“Last week, in public bidding by China Mobile, we won contracts to build 5G networks for 37 of the 40 cities,” Ren dis

closed. “Our capacity for mass production is enormous, and will not drop much with US restrictions”.

The otherwise low-profile Huawei leader made no secret about his pride

in his company’s technologies: “Huawei’s 5G will absolutely not be affected. When it c

omes to 5G technologies, others will definitely not catch up in two or three years”.

That was why the confident Ren said the 90-day exemption Washington declared on Monday was dispensable.

Trump must turn over financial records to House, judge rules

A federal judge in Washington ruled Monday against President Donald Trump in a financial records dispute with Congress.

US District Judge Amit Mehta, who was appointed by President Barack Obama, said T

rump cannot block a House subpoena of financial records. He sai

d the Democratic-led House committee seeking the information has said it belie

ves the documents would help lawmakers consider strengthening ethics and disclosure laws, among other things.

The committee’s reasons were “valid legislative purposes,” Mehta said, and it was not for hi

m “to question whether the Committee’s actions are truly motivated by political considerations.”

The decision comes amid a widespread effort by the White House and the preside

nt’s lawyers to refuse to cooperate with congressional requests for information and records.

Washington foolish to defy economics law and turns in the

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a grea

t extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of econ

omics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objectives-though m

any of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the U

S hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

A dream called sustainable reindustrialization

Yet the US expends huge amounts of its resources just to maintain its mo

netary hegemony and thus ensure its financial sector offers higher pay and return on inv

estment compared with the real economy sectors, which helps it to maintain its advantage in

Chinese students are increasingly diversifying their choices of destinations for overseas stud

ies, with more students choosing to go to the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, a new report showed.

In a multiple choice survey for the annual Report on Chinese Students’ Overseas Study, released

on Tuesday, while the United States remains the most popular destination for overseas study this year, pref

erred by 43 percent of the respondents, this was down by 8 percentage points compared with 2015.

US dominance looks uncertain as the number of students inclined to study in the UK r

ose sharply in 2019, accounting for 41 percent, up 9 percentage points compared with 2015.

Boosting rural areas will help solve dilemmas of ove

rcrowding and rampant construction plaguing cities, and the development of cities will also offer unique ways to bring about rural revitalization,” Chen said.

“As restrictions on hukou will gradually be removed, cities need to be well-prepared to offer

accommodation and employment opportunities, and allow children of migrant workers to have equal access to education,” Chen added.

China has made steady progress in urbanization, as the ranks of permanent urban r

esidents stood at 831 million at the end of 2018, up 17.9 million from the previous year, said the National Bureau of Statistics.

Last month, the National Development and Reform Commission said it

plans to increase the urbanization rate by at least 1 percentage point by the end of this year.

Shen Chi, vice-director of the China Center for Urban Development, said the government’s new

plan will help foster high-quality and sustainable economic development across the nation.

“Relaxing the hukou policy will be a key step in promoting the free flow of labor across

the nation,” Shen said. “A systematic consideration and arrangement of the integratio

“President Xi has called upon young people to overcome hardships, and that is what our team has been doing,” Yi said.

Qiu Shuiping, Party secretary of Peking University, said the learning institution is pro

 transit. According to NBS preliminary estimates, the share of consumption of clean energy such as natural gas, hydropo

wer, nuclear power and wind power in total energy consumption in the first quarter was 1.5 percentage points hi

gher than that of the same period last year. Energy consumption per unit of GDP went down by 2.7 percent year-on-year.

Total investment in fixed aassets grew by 6.3 percent, with private invest

ment growing at 6.4 percent, slightly faster than the overall number. This is es

pecially significant in the light of last year’s fears that private investment in the econo

my might collapse. So, the government’s efforts to strengthen the private sector appear to have borne fruit.

Investment in high-tech manufacturing rose by 11.4 percent and investme

nt in high-tech services rose 19.3 percent, both far higher than overall investment gro]

wth. This shows that the shift toward advanced manufacturing and services is well underway.

They maintained that Belt and Road construction wi

Employees have been working according to the che

edule in some companies, including some well-known internet enterprises. Earlier this year, Youzan, an e-commerce compa

ny based in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, triggered controversy by introducing the “996” schedule in its annua

l meeting. The move even prompted the labor authorities to conduct an investigation against Youzan.

Workers have been working overtime in many industries for yea

rs. But now, many programmers in internet companies are opposing the “996” schedu

le because the extra work does not come with any compensation or bonus. To reduce the labor cost, many high-tech and int

ernet companies are laying off workers. That means, there are fewer people left to shoulder the extra work. Tha

t’s a reason why the overloaded IT programmers have now burst out with complaints.

Alibaba chairman Jack Ma has said that only by working harder

and longer than others can an employee achieve success in life. He h

as also said that those who want to join Alibaba should be prepared to work for 12-hour work a day. This not only goe

s against the Labor Law but also violates the rights and interests of the employers, and could harm their health.
