nd the winter sports industry in China? And what

Winter sports are relatively new to China and not played by

many Chinese people. In recent years, the Chinese winter sports team particip

ated in some individual events in the 2016 World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Seoul and

the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, the Republic of Korea, and won some medals, including gold medals.

The development of winter sports in China suffers from reg

ional imbalance, with people in the northeastern region being

the most avid fans and practitioners of winter sports.

But after winning the bid to host the 2022 Winter Games, especially s

ince the issuing of a guideline that aims to prompt 300 million people to play winter sports by 20

22, the development of winter sports and the winter sports industry has gathered pace in China.

Chris Rowley, a visiting professor from Oxford Uni

University’s Kellogg College in England, called openin

g to more foreign investment a very important development.

“Of course this will expose both inward investors and indigenous organ

izations to some stark differences in management and doing business between them, which in tu

rn requires more globally effective leaders who are les

s ethnocentric and more culturally aware,” he said.

Sikhumbuzo Zondi, a research assistant at th

e Institute for Global Dialogue associated with

the University of South Africa, said another important aspect of Xi’s

opening address was the desire to invest more resources in scientific innovation and technology.

I think the Belt and Road Initiative is very good . Five

pillars of the initiative are important. The most and best (part) of it, I think, is connectiv

ity and inter-culture exchange, sustainable development agenda, and knowledge transfer.

China is the biggest market in the world. We have enough resources in our country. We want our p

roduct get access to the market and we also want to live in good infrastructure, such as roads, railw

ays, schools, hospitals. I also hope knowledge of China come to our country. We have sea access, and good infra

structure can help our country and neighboring countries get access to the Maritime Silk Road.

China has become the second-largest investor of our count

ry in the past 10 years. It’s investing infrastructure, mining

and agriculture. We have Confucius Institute, facilitate Chinese and Portuguese learning. The Belt and Road

Initiative helps Mozambique boost its industrialization, technology and finance.

In terms of transportation methods, high-speed train is

 preferred by travelers for the four-day vacation. In most cases, it takes travelers under five hours to get to their destinations.

In addition Shanghai’s Disney theme park, Guangzhou’s Chimelong Safari Park and Cho

ngqing’s Hongyadong were predicted to be the hottest three tourist attractions on the Chinese mainland.

Two thousand years ago, the ancient Silk Road opened the door for Chengdu to connect with th

e rest of the world. Now, fueled by the Belt and Road Initiative, the city again stands at the forefront of ope

ning-up, developing its industries, creating value and making innovations on the global stage.

The first freight train from Luxembourg to Chengdu departed on April 4. The train, branded under the “China Railway Express” bann

er, passed through Germany, Poland, Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan, and then entered China through the Al

ashankou port in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. The travel time, from start to finish, was 15 days.

Universities will join efforts to save water under a ne

new evaluation system, which will be released by the ministries of

water resources and education, the minister said. A number of universities will be desig

nated along with the participation of private capital, which is expected to get the public involved, he added.

Ma Jun, director of the Institute of Public& Environment

al Affairs, said that the plan is expected to accelerate water conservation.

“The disparity in water resources among different provincial regions means we have to

save more water for a sustainable development for the years to come, even centuries,” Ma said.

“In industrial and agricultural production, more technolo

gies can help save such resource. It also applies to Chi

na’s urbanization process, as now only 11 percent of towns can process waste water.”

Restoration of classic TV series sheds light on nostalgia

Generations of Chinese people growing up between the 1980s and the

early 2000s will no doubt share fond collective memories of spending the long after

noons of their childhood summer vacations squeezed in front of small TV sets watching their favorite shows.

Most people will be able to reel off the names of these productions, which have been broadcast ov

er and over again: the historical detective drama The Arbiter, the martial arts saga Legend of the Drago

nslayer Sword, the fantasy New Legend of Madame White Snake. You name it, we’ve all seen them.

Nevertheless, for the content managers at Youku, one of China’s leading

video streaming platforms, one problem has been bothering them for a long time.

When they finally gained the broadcasting rights for thes

e old drama series – in a bid to tap into people’s nostalgia – they were embarrassed to find users

soon abandoning the series. Some viewers even stopped watching after less than a minute, their big data analysis showed.

China’s innovation and entrepreneurship activities ha

s have accelerated since 2015 as the government sees them as drivers for the economy’s transition.

As a result, a number of supportive policies have been issue

d to support maker spaces, incubators and companies to speed up innovation.

Roee says that the Chinese innovation and entrepreneurship market has “mind-blowing speed and scale”, which, despite short-

term fluctuations, has a growth trajectory from a long-term perspective and might grow more than tenfold in the next decade.

“Chinese enterprises have advanced consumer-oriented thinking and strong manuf

acturing capabilities, and China’s speed of getting from an idea to a product is unparalleled,” he says.

Dylan Huang, who oversees WeWork Labs’ Greater China operations, says the demand a

mong Chinese startups for all-round support is strong, and the platform will leverage its global re

ources to facilitate exchanges between Chinese partners and their overseas counterparts.

Ma described the early radiation as carpet bombing, sayin

g it causes collateral damage in the area around the tumor. A “satellite map” is needed for a precision strike, he said.

Ma and his team put forward an individualized irradiation range and dose standard for radi

otherapy. The result is a clear picture showing high – and low-risk areas, which then allows dose stratification.

In 2014, an atlas of organs at risk in nasopharyngeal cancer patients was published in

Radiotherapy and Oncology. It suggested tailoring both radiation doses and targets, and setting a reco

mmended safety dose for protecting 33 normal organs around the nasopharynx.

Today, the five-year overall survival rate for patients exceeds 80 percent at Sun Yat-sen Uni

versity Cancer Center, while the rate of severe side effects from radiotherapy has dropped by 24 percent.

Ma, who has won China’s National Science and Technology Award twice with his team, is grateful to more than 10,000

patients who have participated in his research, saying their courage is behind the progress in the treatment.
