President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump may have agreed at the G20 summit in Osaka to resu 上海乌托邦品茶微信
me trade negotiations, but the path to ending the trade war remains far from clear. After all, the two leaders had rea
ched a similar agreement at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires in December 2018 and that agreement ultimately fail

Whether the US administration makes the same mistake this time remains to be seen. In any case, it is worth considering how t 上海乌托邦品茶微信
he trade war might unfold over the coming months and years – and what China can do to protect itself.
US has not withdrawn tariffs it imposed earlier
上海乌托邦Import tariffs may, for the foreseeable future, remain steady – neither es
calating nor being rolled back. The agreement in Osaka kept the US administration from foll

verse past measures, such as the 15-percentage-point tariff hike, to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese p
roducts that the US implemented after the 11th round of talks broke down in May. 上海乌托邦
While these tariffs have not yet had serious consequenc
上海乌托邦品茶微信es for China’s economy, their effects are likely to deepen over time. But China may succeed in per
suading the US to remove them – or, at least, not raise them further – if it refrains from retaliating with tariffs of its own 上海乌托邦
on US goods. Instead, China should focus on reducing its bilateral trade surplus with the US on its own terms. It is incr
easingly clear that the US tariffs have done more damage to American businesses and consumers than to China’s. 上海乌托邦品茶微信
The US wants to create among Belt and Road partner countries doubt

thus dissuade them from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.
Some American politicians and media will continue to proclaim

He illustrates the university’s continued internationalization efforts
. This strategy at many universities on the Chinese mainland has helped them to achieve better上海后花园女神会所
standings globally, as internationalization is an important factor in university rankings.
上海后花园In the latest QS World University Rankings published by higher education analyst QS Qu

Tsinghua is China’s highest-ranked university on the list, rising from 17th place last year to 16th. Peking University ros上海后花园

Fudan University in Shanghai ranked third among mainland 女神会所universities, up four place上海后花园

QS ranked 1,000 universities from 82 countries and regions. They are measured on academic standing, grad

Last year, more than 16,000 faculty and students went abroad for visits and exchanges, and
over 3,700 international students from 128 countries were studying at Tsinghua, he said.上海后花园
It is not the only university pursuing a more globalized education, with neighboring Peking University also rec

The strategy features six development concepts: creativity, leade

In his speech to celebrate Tsinghua’s 108th anniversary, Qiu Yon上海后花园

上海后花园女神会所The university continues to further implement its global strategy, which strives to
enhance the competence of its students worldwide, conduct high-end research for the benefit of both China an

According to Huo Wei, an archaeology professor from Chengdu-based Sichuan Universit 上海会所

“The Tubo people introduced Buddhist art from the Tang regions an

上海会所ifacts from Persia,” Huo explains. “It amassed a huge number of silk pieces through trade, despite the fact that Tubo pe

“We like to refer to it as the Silk Road on the Plateau,” he explains. “It was an indispensable part of the ancient Silk Road.” 上海会所品茶微信
Pritzker says: “Studies of Tibetan culture around the world have largely been influen

Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub
With its modern industrial system, Tianhe district in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信
rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become an
international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t
上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation.
Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove
rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信
By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj
上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city
‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis
trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网
eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.
上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen
t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.
More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网
sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go
上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.
With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c
alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信
llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr
eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di
strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信
As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie
s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u
p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信
Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent
of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.
By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent

g province, which dates from 5,300 to 4,500 years ago, archaeologists unearthed a hug
e dam 3.5 kilometers long and more than 10 meters thick. Ruins of the city cover 3 million square met上海419论坛
ers, and the city’s walls are 40 to 60 meters thick. The discovery was made possible with remote sensing technology.
上海419论坛”In the city center, we found a terrace that is 630 meters by 450 meters,” he said. “Some of the foundations are as large as 900 square meters.”
He estimated that the entire city would have taken 10,000 people a decade or longer to build.上海419论坛女神会所
“It hardly would have been possible for a tribe or a league of tribes to mobilize so many
上海419论坛people,” Wang said. “That indicated a time of early-stage states with wide influence.”
Division of labor, hierarchical social classes and inequality in wealth were also observed when studying the Taosi Site (from
4,300 to 4,100 years ago) in Xiangfen county, Shanxi province, and several other key sites of “huge city ruins”, he said.上海419论坛女神会所
The relics are from what is believed to have been the capital of Emperor Ya
o, a legendary ancient ruler. Some markings were discovered that are believed to be a pro
上海419论坛女神会所totype of written characters, but they appear to have been used exclusively within a small group of ruling elites.
“Around 5,000 years ago, some regions along the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the western bank
of Liaohe River (in Northeast China) stepped into the age of civilization,” Wang said. Those ancient sta上海419论坛
tes, he said, “controlled certain territory, but had economic, political and cultural connections with each other”.
上海419论坛女神会所During the time of the Erlitou Site (3,750 to 3,550 years ago), in Luoyang, Henan province, China entered what is often called the age of dynasties, Wang said.
“Erlitou marked the time when the Central China plain began to widely influence上海419论坛
the surrounding areas,” he said. “It created a foundation for a united country with multiethnic groups.”
Speaking of how to define “civilization”, Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University
上海419论坛女神会所who is in charge of the project, said traditional criteria in Western academia, which emphasize the ap
pearance of written characters and metallurgy, have not strictly been used in this project.
Liangzhu and several other early civilizations in China, h上海419论坛女神会所
owever, are known for their highly developed techniques in making jade articles.
上海419论坛女神会所”Some characters of human development are common,” Zhao said. “The
difference also shows there are some unique characters in early Chinese civilization.”
He said Chinese civilization also absorbed influences from other civilizations. Archaeological discoveries sho
w wheat cultivation, breeding of cattle and sheep, and bronze-making technology in China originated in We
stern and Central Asia and were later adopted and acquired local characteristics.
Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.
It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所
after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of
上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.
The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.
The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419
ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad
上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”
Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419
After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.
上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led
by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419
Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje
上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.
“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level
sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信
New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.
Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien
t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.
More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o
f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.
The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult
ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s
ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.
In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d
上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch
ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.
“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da
rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所
anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu
nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d
ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int
elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所
