ietnam surpassed India to become the largest buyer of Chin

a’s photovoltaic products. Export value to Vietnam rose 239 times to $739 million in the fi

rst quarter, taking up 16.8 percent of China’s total photovoltaic export value.

With the European Union ending its anti-dumping and anti-subsidy meas

ures, photovoltaic exports from China to Europe also saw large increase in Q1.

The country’s photovoltaic products export volume to the Netherlands and Spain increased 1,049.6 percent and 158.3 perc

ent, respectively, in the first quarter, said the report. It predicted that the emerging markets, such as Mexico, Aus

tralia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates will further boost the export of China’s photovoltaic modules.

The export of China’s photovoltaic products to the United States dropped 28.9 pe

rcent to just 0.01 GW in the first quarter, the report said. The Section 201, Section 3

In contrast, the US seems to take it for granted that tarif

s are a weapon it can employ to bring China to its knees and extract one-sided

concessions, apparently ignorant to the fac

t that China is not what it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s when the country was forced into signing humil

iating treaties, which resulted in the opening of trading ports and paying of indemnities to Western powers.

Perhaps the blame for the breakdown in the talks should be laid at the door of the mind-set o

f the West, which sees only winners and losers, rather than a holistic whole in

which all benefit from each other.

That Eastern viewpoint explains why

China still hopes that the US will meet it halfway for

the benefit of both countries and both

peoples as well as the development of the world economy.

he scholars suggested that authorities such as th

 National Health Commission should monitor all gene-editing centers and IVF clinics in China to ensure trials are in line with regulations.

A national registry dedicated to clinical trials involving cell technologies should be established to pro

mote greater transparency, they said, so that before a trial begins scientists would need to pass an

ethics review and provide a list of names of all participating scientists and institutions.

Universities and research institutes should strengthen education and

training in bioethics and scientific and medical professionalism, covering research sci

entists and students of science, medicine and the humanities at all levels, they said.

In addition, more efforts should be undertaken to eliminate prejudice against people wi

th disabilities, which exists in the minds of some scholars, they said. Following the gene-edited baby incid

ent, government departments have vowed to improve supervision, and new regulations are being made or revised.

Not only are there missing links on the causality chai

 between long-term structural factors and actual economic performance, it is also unclear how long those factors would take to constrain GDP growth to a part

cular level. In fact, 20 years ago, the same long-term factors were used to warn of a possible fall in Chinese GDP growth.

Because of the complexity of China’s growth trajectory, many economists seem to base their assessments of potenti

al on performance. After every drop in China’s GDP growth since the second quarter of 2012-when growth fell be

low 8 percent-economists have emerged to declare that performance was in line with potential.

Difficult to determine potential growth rate

To be sure, there are various estimates of China’s potential growth rate, ranging from 5 perc

ent to 8 percent. But it is difficult to determine which is reliable. For one thing, there is reason to believe that

most estimates fail to discount cyclical factors adequately when calculating the long-term trend.

Opening up of film market leads to vibrancy

the 22nd film of Marvel Cinematic Universe, has made more than $2 billion globally wit

h over $576 million, nearly a third of the total, being contributed by the Chinese market.

The percentage of Hollywood films contributing to China’s box office has witnessed a gradual decline in recent years

thanks to the rise of successful Chinese films including The Wandering Earth and Dying to Survive.

Due to its explosive growth in third-and fourth-tier cities, the Chinese movie market is certainly poised to become the larg

est in the world in the not too distant future. Last year, China’s total box office exceeded 60 billion yuan ($8.9 billion), gra

dually closing the gap with the United States whose box office was about $11.6 billion. China has become such a form

idable force in the global film industry that international film producers cannot afford to overlook it.

Apart from proposing to build a community of shared

future for mankind in his speech at the headquarters of the United Nation

s in September 2015, and in his report for the 19th National Congress of the Communist Part

y of China in October 2017, Xi has pledged on different occasions to build a peaceful, safe, prosperous, open, incl

usive, clean and beautiful world to let the sunshine of a community of shared future for mankind illuminate the world.

The world, which is going through a phase of adjustment that features huge development and fundamental changes, faces

great and unfamiliar turbulent situations — the overall trends of peace and development are irreversible, while ins

tability and uncertainty are prominent. Some problems and challenges are unprecedented, and the interna

i also called for the two countries to further enhance

exchanges between their legislatures, political parties, youth, think tanks, media

and local authorities to cement their people’s support for friendly bilateral ties.

Bhandari said the joint building of the Belt and Road is a historic initiative and has an important global influence.

The initiative has served as a good platform for Nepal-China cooperation, she said.

The Nepali president expressed her congratulations on the

70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and said

it is admirable what the Chinese people have achieved under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.

China is a true friend of Nepal, and Nepal sees opportunities in China’s prosperity and stability, Bhandari said.

Also, the UNOOSA just signed a framework agreeme

 with China, allowing UN member states to participate in its scientific missions for the exploration of the solar system. It will bri

ng scientists from all over the world to work together, which will bring a lot of innovation,” she added.

The meteorological satellite jointly designed and constructed by

Chinese and French scientists has already started to send back data on the wind and ocean wave

s after it was sent to orbit by a Chinese rocket in October. The data can help scientists learn more about climate chan

ge, said Lionel Suchet, chief operating officer of the National Centre for Space Studies of France.

“In 2021, France and China plan to jointly launch an astronomical satellite to help the world deepen

its understanding on the gravitational wave,” Suchet said. “Space is our future, we need to step into it together.”

Besides the successful capture of the first black

k hole image, two earlier detections of gravitational waves from

black hole mergers also were products of international collaboration.

In February 2016, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory in the United States announ

ced the first observation of gravitational waves generated by a black hole merger. The following June, it annou

nced the second detection of a gravitational wave event from colliding black holes.

Wu said Tianqin has potential for even greater discoveries.

“LIGO used interferometers on the ground with an arm length of 4 km. But with satellites, the arm length will increas

e to 170,000 km. So the space-based probes (enabled by Tianqin) will be able to detect gravitational waves at much l

ower frequencies generated by the merging of massive or supermassive black holes,” he said.

“It will also enable us to see the smaller black holes during the infancy of the universe, as w

ell as understand the history of black hole growth and the evolution of galaxies,” he said

The core of Beijing’s high-quality development is to

 better deal with the relationship between ‘capital’ and ‘city’, which is to strengthen the four funct

ions of Beijing — the national center of politics, culture, international communications and scient

ific innovation,” said Cai Qi, Party secretary of Beijing, last month during the two sessions.

According to the municipal authority, the new economy — industries with intensive innovation a

nd knowledge — now makes up 33 percent of the city’s economy, and this ratio is expected to keep growing.

President Xi Jinping’s three-nation visit to Europe last month prod

uced tangible fruits and showed that despite any differences that may exist between China and

the European Union, they have the common desire to strengthen cooperation.

Thanks to mutual efforts from both sides, China-EU interaction has been displaying good momentum. Over the years, their economic

interests have become increasingly intertwined, and people-to-people exchanges have flourished, formin

g a solid foundation on which bilateral ties have been able to grow and prosper in an all-around way.
