Wang said the Sino-US trade talks have made important

and substantive progress thanks to efforts from both sides. Meanwhile the talks face some serious problems which need to be resolved.

The top diplomat said that as long as the negotiations meet the general direction of China’s reform an

d opening-up policy, adhere to China’s basic needs about high-quality development and serve the com

mon interests of the Chinese and US people, the negotiator teams from both sides could have the capability and w

isdom to settle their reasonable demands and eventually achieve a win-win agreement.

Wang said China insists on upholding national sovereignty, safeguarding the inter

ests of its people and defending national honor when negotiating with any country.

According to the General Administration of Customs, trade between

China and the US in the first four months stood at 1.1 trillion yuan ($160 billion).

Chinese exporters have from 20 to 50 percent of the

 US market in other low-value-added markets, plus electrical machinery and equipment, mechanical

appliances, and iron and steel. In most other categories, China has less than 20 percent of the US market.

China also assembles and then exports a lot of phones, computers and other gadgets to the US. But, most of the profits and

wages go to Japanese or South Korean component producers or US-based designers. For example, China ma

kes less than $9 from each iPhone. The total price of a phone is ridiculously counted as a Chinese export to the US.

It’s a good thing that China is no longer a low-wage country. Most Chinese

are much better off than they were even 10 years ago. But it does mean that these lo

w-skilled, labor-intensive industries will be moving to less-developed nations. US tariffs on such products will only se

rve to hasten the transition to higher value-added industries that China has to make anyway.

He speaks fluent Mandarin and planned to continue his

 study of Chinese history and religious traditions in college. Horne began studying Ch

inese in fourth grade, and it’s “both a personal journey and an intellectual journey”, he said.

“That diversity — another way to see the world, another way to look at things — has brought so much into my life,” Horne said.

Charlotte Christensen, vice-president of the Oregon China Council, has worked for years with Chinese people and organizations.

Christensen, who took second prize, also witnessed friendships going

beyond the personal level. The state of Oregon developed a sister-state/province rela

tionship with Fujian province 35 years ago and a state/municipality relationship with Tianjin in 2014.

“China raised 800 million of her people from poverty and made it a p

riority to restore her natural environment to become an ecological civilization,” she said.

Xi’s remarks will guide younger generations in taking his

tory as a mirror, and combining their personal ideals with the dream of national rejuvenation, Hu Xianzhong, a senior re

searcher at the China Youth and Children Research Center, said in an article published by China Youth Daily on Sunday.

Since the movement began nearly a century ago, the country’s youth

has been collectively marching with the times and the people under the leadership of the C

PC-whether in periods of revolution, construction, or in the nation’s campaign of reform and openingup, Hu said.

As the centenary of the movement draws near, a good understanding of its history will make yout

hs know more about why their futures are closely connected with the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation so that

they will find their niches and play bigger roles in the country’s socialist cause, he added.

Chen Yuhao, a postgraduate student at the U

niversity of International Business and Economics, said the spirit of patriotism, progress, democracy and s

cience is still the core value of Chinese youth, and should be upheld and carried forward in the new era.

Once completed, Tianqin will become an important

 tool to search for and detect black holes of all sizes and wavelengths in the n

ext two decades,” Wu Qingwen, a professor at the School of Physics of Huazhong Uni

versity of Science and Technology in Wuhan, Hubei province, said on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Event Horizon Telescope, a global array of e

ight ground-based radio telescopes, revealed the first-ever image of a black hole.

Wu was one of the more than 200 astronomers worldwi

de involved in the EHT collaboration, which captured the first vi

sible representation of what are considered the most extreme objects in the universe.

International collaboration is vital for astronomical observations, Wu said.

Bernard Dewit, chairman of the Belgian-Chinese Cham

ber of Commerce, said that industrial and trade relations between the EU and China will i

ncrease following the meeting, and that China has made great efforts to open its market to European companies.

“China’s new Foreign Investment Law, which has just been (approved), will greatly reassure European investors of the com

mitment of the Chinese government to further protect foreign investments in China,” he said.

Wang Yiwei, a professor of international relations at Renmin University of China, said in an article

published in the People’s Daily Overseas Edition on Wednesday that the Chinese and EU lead

ers’ strategic communication on important issues will help foster new areas for bilateral cooperation.

The concerted efforts made by the two sides to cope with the common challenges

and develop win-win cooperation will add stability to an increasingly uncertain world, he added.

The Temburong Bridge, the largest infrastructure

unei’s history, will become the country’s longest sea-crossing bridge with a total length of about 30 km. It is scheduled to open to traffic by the end of November 2019.

The CC4 section of the bridge is constructed by China State Construction Engineering C

orp. At around 11.6 km of the 11.8 km-long section will be a land viaduct traversing the mangrove swamp of the

Labu Forest Reserve, the company has established a set of strict safety and green construction evaluation systems to mee

t the high demand for environmental protection and cope with unprecedented difficulty in construction.

The Padma Bridge, 25 meters in width and 10 km in length, will

be built over the Padma River, one of the three major rivers in Bangladesh.

In June 2016, China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co Ltd was awar

ded a $1.55-billion contract by the Bangladeshi government to build the core structure of the bridge.

The bridge is the country’s largest infrastructure project, as wel

l as the largest foreign bridge project undertaken by Chinese companies in terms of total cost.

Once completed, travel time between the capital, Dhaka, and the southern city of Khulna will be shortened to about three hours from 13 hours.

But the underlying trend for the past five years is enc

ncouraging: annual TFP growth of about 3 percent, with especially strong growth in the tertiar

y sector. So, notwithstanding the recent slowdown in aggregate GDP growth, services-led Chi

nese rebalancing is imparting meaningful productivity leverage to the economy as a whole.

The question now is: Can China sustain its recent TFP trajectorya dist

inct possibility in light of an increasingly powerful shift to indigenous innovation and

the sustained services-led productivity of a growing cohort of well-educated knowledge workers-as well as rea

p the benefits of continued upgrading of its capital stock? If it can, the new Chinese study concludes that China’s potential GDP growth rate could hold aro

nd 6 percent over the next five years. Such an outcome would conform quite closely with China’s longer-term ambitions.

So, despite the days of 10 percent Chinese growth being over, which w

as inevitable, there is good reason to believe that the real story is China’s shift from qua

ntitative to qualitative growth. Which suggests China will defy yet again widespread fears of a looming middle-income trap.

ation and safety officials Daniel Elwell, Robert

US senators sharply questioned regulatory officials on Wedne

sday about the Federal Aviation Administration’s reliance on Boeing Co’s engineers to cert

ify the safety of the company’s new 737 Max 8 aircraft, which was involved in two fatal crashes in the past five months.

A self-certification procedure called Organization Designation Authorization came under scr

utiny at a hearing of the Senate Commerce Committee’s aviation subcommittee in Washington. Testifying wer

e Daniel Elwell, acting FAA administrator; Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Saf

ety Board; and Calvin Scovel III, Transportation Department inspector general.

For decades, the FAA has delegated some authority for certifying new aircraft to the manufacturers, reducing government costs.

After the crashes of Lion Air in Indonesia in October and Ethiop

ian Airlines this month, which killed a total of 346 passengers and crew members, critics have ci

ted the self-certification process as evidence of an overly cozy relationship between the FAA and the industry.

The revelation that an extra pilot saved the plane the day

before the crash has never been reported before, according to Bloomberg.

Aviation analyst and editor in chief of Airlineratings.com, Geoffrey Thomas, said it was not unusual for off-duty pilots, known as dead heads, to fly in the cockpit of planes.

“It could well be that the flight is full and he needs to get back t

o Jakarta — so as long as he is authorized to do so — then it’s absolutely fine,” he said.

However, the presence of the third pilot in the cockpit did not appear in the National Tra

nsportation Safety Committee’s (KNKT) November preliminary report into the crash.

Thomas said this fact should have been reported “as you could argue that the pilot was a distraction or an assistance,” he said.

CNN contacted Lion Air Group Captain Daniel Putut for comment and he directed questions to the KNKT.
