High requirements for mountaineering admission is an

other professional measure that relates to safety. Anyone without experience climbing mountains above 8,000 meters, and witho

ut adequate capability for independent movement is not allowed on Mount Qomolangma,” he said.

Both overseas and domestic climbers must apply as part of a team, not personally, he said.

Tibet installed a new ladder in a section of the climbing route in 2017, and provided climb

ing ropes as long as 6,000 meters along the path between a section at 6,600 meters and the summit at 8,844 meters.

Cleanup efforts on the mountain involve both environmental considerations and climbing sa

fety. The work has become routine, said Tashi Gyatso, the deputy secretary of the regional government.

Accelerating the opening up of China’s commodity futu

ures market will help foreign investors optimize their renminbi-denominated asset portfolios as they can inc

orporate investment targets of a wider variety, said Wang Tingting, an associate pro

fessor of finance with the Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.

“Moreover, as foreign investors’ trading helps boost liquidity in the domestic market and makes the price changes mor

e consistent with international trends, domestic market participants can also better hedge against risks,” he said.

Experts also expect China to open up the stock index futures market to foreign invest

ors, as they have large exposure in the A-share market and are therefore in need of this risk management tool.

he familiar discrediting of China’s policy toward the

 Uygurs in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Which in itself is a worrying development since it may be the start of the US using the domestic affa

irs of other countries as a pretext to stifle the growth of foreign competitors to US companies.

Washington, of course, is trying to put the US on the high moral ground while embedding

its trade frictions with other countries into its political agenda and using its economic policy for its foreign policy aims.

In this way, it is hoping to achieve the colonization of the global

business world, allegedly under the banners of human rights, freedom and democracy.

If Washington really cared about the human rights situation in X

injiang, it would by no means ignore the development of the region. Over the past four

decades, the regions’ economy has increased more than 250 times, and the well-being of the Uygur people h

A recent report by the Beijing Municipal Education

 Commission said that more than 231,000 college students graduated from universities in

Beijing last year, but 37.5 percent of employed graduates chose to work outside the capital.

A female college student surnamed Zhang said that she chose to w

ork in Wuhan, Hubei province, after graduating from Tsinghua University in June, 2018.

“The biggest reason driving me away from Beijing was the living cost,” she said. “Tho

ugh I can earn 8,000 ($1,160) or even 10,000 yuan a month in Beijing, the rent may cost me 3,000 yuan or more ea

ch month, let alone other expenses such as meals, transportation and getting together with friends.”

In contrast, some so-called new first-tier cities like Chengdu, Sichua

n province; Hangzhou, Zhejiang province; and Wuhan have sprung up as new at

tractions to college graduates for their cheaper living costs and preferential policies to newcomers.

The US’ monetary hegemony is itself a big impedim

ment to the reindustrialization process, which could be viewed as a sort of financial Dutch disease-the apparent causal relationsh

ip between the increase in the economic development of a specific sector and a decline in other sectors. The more

heated the US stock market gets, the more serious the Dutch disease will become. And, ironically, the US leader is k

een on strengthening the stock market to showcase his political and economic track record.

Besides, the US administration cannot launch large-scale infrastructure construction projects, significantly red

uce the trade deficit with China and deny Chinese investors access to its market all at the same time.

The US’ trade deficit stems from its extremely low national saving

s rate and has to be compensated by other countries’ national savings, which in turn

adds to the trade deficit. On the other hand, China’s efficiency in the manufacturing industry mak

Huawei has more than 13,000 component and service su

uppliers worldwide. In November, it unveiled a list of its 92 core suppliers for the first ti

me. Thirty-three of them are from the US, including chip giants Qualcomm Inc and Intel Corp.

Wang Yanhui, secretary-general of the Mobile China Alliance, said, “Huawei has also been pre

paring for such a situation for some time and has hoarded chips to handle a worst-case scenario.”

The company became the world’s third-largest buyer of semiconductors last year.

ei Jianguo, a former vice-minister of commerce, said US bus

inesses and consumers will pay the cost amid hefty levies, which will eventually add significant pressure on the US economy.

The US government’s moves risk sparking a full-blown trade

war with China, and China is fully prepared for any possibility, Wei said.

Economists at Goldman Sachs said in a research note that recent data showed the costs of Washington’s tariffs on China last year

had fallen “entirely” on US businesses and households, with no clear reduction in prices charged by Chinese exporters.

The bank said that US consumer prices are higher, partly because Chinese exporters have not low

ered their prices to better compete in the US market. In addition, some US producers “op

portunistically” increased prices in response to protection from Chinese competitors, it said.

Yanqing and Zhangjiakou are preparing another 10 ven

ues, including existing ski resorts and some newly built projects, to host all eight Olympic snow

sports in 2022. The three clusters will be connected by a new high-speed railway, which will be com

pleted by the end of this year. It looks beyond the Games to boost future winter sports tourism.

According to the organizing committee, all 26 venues for 2022 will be ready by June next year with the first t

est event, a World Cup skiing series, scheduled to be held in Yanqing’s National Alpine Skiing Center in February.

About 90 percent of the earth moving work for the mountain center is now complete, and a 53-hec

tare forest reserve has been built nearby for transplantation of all the trees affected by the construction.

“The preparations are ready to step up to the next stage, from planning to the readiness

phase. Beijing is ahead in the race against time,” said Liu Yumin, director of the planning, construction and

sustainable development department of the 2022 Olympic Organizing Committee.

Baidu came under fire in 2016 when Wei Zexi, a 21-year

old student from Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from a rare cancer of the soft tissue. Wei was re

searching the disease on Baidu and came across an advertisement for treatments that proved ineffective.

After Wei’s death, Baidu announced a sweeping restructuring and optimization of its medical business, especially regardi

ng its paid listing practices. It also tightened regulations on medical promotion and enforced clear labeling rul

es that differentiate advertisements from credible medical information, according to media reports.

However, medical advertising remains one of the key sources of income for Baidu, and some are still trying to exploit the s

ystem. In April, the police in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, detained a team of medical fraudsters who drove up r

ankings on Baidu’s research results to promote faulty hospitals to patients, local authorities said.

Cambodia is working with China to launch our first

 satellite in 2021, so the (Cambodian) government hoped that someone could learn something abo

ut spacecraft. But there is no school in Cambodia that teaches such a thing. So here I am,” Chea said.

China has signed an agreement with Cambodia to develop, make and launch the Southeastern Asian nation’s first sat

ellite in the next few years. The satellite, Techo 1, will be used for communications.

Moreno Pena, on the other hand, has 11 years’ experience at the Bolivarian Agency for Space Activities, Venezuela’s sp

ace organization, as an electrical engineer and chief of the spacecraft operation unit.

This is the second time he has come to China as a student. The first time w

as in 2007, when he was selected to take part in satellite application training in Beijing.

He said he came to China this time hoping to expan

d his knowhow on spacecraft and learn how to design and build satellites.
