Dealing with the economic bullying, trade protect

tionism and unilateralism of the United States is not just the business of China, it also matters to the recovery of the world economy,” Zhang said.

Regarding the future development of the SCO, Zhang said the short-term goal of the regional organization is to build a commu

nity of development and security while its long-term goal is to build a community with a shared future.

The “Annual Report on the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (2019)”, released by the Chinese Academy of Social Scien

ces on Monday, highlighted the challenges the regional body is facing due to unilateralism, protectionism and terr

orism against the backdrop of increasing global uncertainty and instability.

The report said political mutual trust among the SCO members has been strengthened and high-quality de

velopment of the BRI has injected fresh impetus into the member states’ cooperation.

ess. And the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiativ althoug

ugh criticized by much of the West, and the US in particular-could bring dramatic

improvements in physical and digital connectivity to Central Asia and parts of Africa.

Further advances in critical infrastructure will create important growth opportunities for developing countries via e-commerce, mobile paym

ents, and related financial services. The experience of China suggests that these digital platforms, and the ecosy

stems that develop around them, are powerful engines for incremental, highly inclusive growth.

China, of course, is a very large, homogenous market. If smaller, lower-income developing countries are to bene

fit from equally rapid inclusive growth, the digital platforms will have to be regional and international in scope.

Some are starting to emerge. Jumia, a Nigeria-based e-commerce

platform covering 14 African countries, recently went public on the New York Stock Exchange, am

Some Chinese car companies are State-owned, usually

by provincial governments, but the car business in China is very highly competitive and foreign brands are very successful.

In any case, the continuing growth of an already large private sec

tor should alleviate foreign concerns about competing with State-owned companies.

During the George W. Bush administration, the US imposed tarif

fs on Chinese steel, arguing that State-owned companies had an unfair advantage. But, US st

eel companies also face higher costs because of increased environmental protection. China’s current emphasis on buil

ding an “ecological civilization” means that that kind of polluting heavy industry will be less viable.

China has also recently announced a strengthened regime of intelle

ctual property rights protection. Again, this is what foreign negotiators are seeking, but al

so is important for China’s own economy as it transitions to being a technology leader.

The national landmark has received thousands of visitors

from China and overseas since it opened in 1968. Leaders from more than 70 countries and over 600 delegations from 150 nations have visited it.

During the three days it reopened to the public before taking road traffic in December, the bridge had more than 200,000 visitors.

The 4,589-meter-long structure reopened after 27 months of repairs. As China’s first home-designed road and rail truss bridge, it has been p

raised and loved by many. A truss bridge is one whose load-bearing superstructure is composed of connected elements forming triangular units.

Liu Yong, 63, a retired teacher from Nanjing, said he was in elementary school when the bridge first op

ened. Without telling his parents and teachers, he and his classmates walked more than 10 kilometers to see it.

“It was the most magnificent structure I had ever seen. When our relatives visited Nanjing, we

took them to see the bridge instead of visiting other well-known places of interest,” Liu said.

Zhou Lei, who lives in a residential community near the bridge, said that when he was an elementary school student in Ya

ncheng, Jiangsu, his father promised him that he would take him to see the bridge if he had high scores in his final exam.

The name 996.ICU refers to a saying among Chin

hinese developers that following the 996 schedule puts you at risk of ending up in an intensive care unit.

In the weeks that followed the creation of 996.ICU in March, the page ha

s accrued almost 200,000 stars-which indicates popularity among users.

Users listed tech companies that use the 996 schedule, and then crea

ted a licensing agreement that would ban such companies from using their codes.

The 996.ICU page was soon blocked on multiple platforms including the messaging tool WeChat and the UC Browser.

The 996 schedule was allegedly first adopted in 2016 by 58.com, a major online classified advertisement site.

Jiang Ying, a professor at China University of Labor Relations

and a leading expert on China’s Labor Law, said the rare protest by sleep-deprived tech f

Legal experts called for China to protect juveniles through cybersecurity legislation a

nd redoubled efforts against school bullying after several cases aroused public outrage and concern.

Fang Yan, a lawyer from Shaanxi province, said that it’s good to see the nation adding to the protectio

n of juveniles in the past few years, “but in some new aspects, such as cyberspace, the protection is far from enough”.

At the end of 2018, China had 829 million netizens, of whom almost 20 percent w

ere under the age of 18, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.

Another report released by the center in March said that 15.6 percent of juven

iles had experienced disturbances, insults or privacy leaks online, while 30.3 percent said

they had been exposed to pornography, gambling or drugs in cyberspace.

The gaokao has its faults, but at least it judges all stud

“However, independent enrollment has evolved into a situation where rich people find ways to get their children extra

points. Third-party organizations should be involved in the process to make it fairer and more transparent,” he said.

Xiong Bingqi, vice-president of the 21st Century Education Research Institute, said the goal of independent college adm

ission is to establish a system of multiple evaluations, instead of judging students by test scores alone.

However, students who qualify for independent enrollment also must take the gaokao, and their scores in the exam rem

in an important basis for admission, Xiong said. So students and their parents are still focused on the scores.

Moreover, the pilot program has failed to help establish a two-way a

dmission mechanism between colleges and students. Independent enrollment refo

rm has increased the right of colleges to choose students, but students still have limited ability to seek admission to the coll

ege of their choice, as one student normally gets a call for admission from just one institution, he said.

Xuan Changneng, deputy head of the State Administration of

 Foreign Exchange, said, “China has ample room to maneuver and take measures toward deleveraging.”

That conclusion is based on the debt structure and interest rate level, he said.

“When we’re talking about deleveraging and maintaining stable growth, I think the focus for seve

ral years has been on quality growth, not just any growth,” he said.Chinese President Xi Jinping met wit
