The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is getting bolde
r in its reforms and experimentation, following an official upgrade centering on its ambit
上海千花坊品茶微信ions to be a world-class knowledge city, an outstanding source of innovation in the region and a global talent magnet.
According to a framework agreement signed by the Chinese and Singaporean governm
ents on Monday, the iconic Sino-Singaporean collaboration project based in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Gu上海千花坊
angdong province, was officially elevated to the status of a State-level bilateral project.
上海千花坊品茶微信Involving a total investment of 1.4 billion yuan ($203.34 million) and scheduled to be co
mpleted in 2020, the China-Singapore International Smart Industry Park will focus
on the development of technology related to the internet of things, big data and cloud ecology.上海千花坊
It is designed to empower companies developing applications in the smart home, transport, office, healthcare and city ind
上海千花坊ustries, according to the administration of Huangpu district, Guangzhou, where the project is located.
Infrastructure projects including eight railways, five expressways and seven urban express
ways are under construction and a new metro line is scheduled for operation in late September.上海千花坊
An intercity light rail is also slated to be put into service next year. By then, travel time from th
e CSGKC to other cities in the Bay Area is expected to be reduced to within an hour.
上海千花坊品茶微信In addition, a high-speed rail station and convenient traffic routes
to the airport, railway stations and the port of Guangzhou are planned.
The park will accommodate innovation incubators, offices, commerc上海千花坊
ial facilities and residential apartments, with green-building technologies to be used widely.
上海千花坊品茶微信The park will also include a Siemens green city digitalization center and a Sino-Singapore research institute.

Statistics from a property research institution showed that Hangzhou, with a total lan上海千花坊
d revenue of 142.3 billion yuan ($20.71 billion), has become the “king of land revenue” during the first six months of this year.
According to data from the China Index Academy, a Beijing-based property research institution, the tot

上海千花坊女神会所The combined income from leasing land in Hangzhou surpassed 140 billion yuan, ranking the top na
tionwide. It was followed by Wuhan, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing, whose land income all exceeded 60 billion yuan.

The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult
ilateralism, partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperation and providing directions for global growth and global governance.
Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所
ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo
reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra
de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所
titutional costs of imports. Xi also called on all parties to work together to build a high-quality world economy.
An important player for global governance
The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm
ent system from Jan 1 next year, establish a punitive compensation mechanism for intellectual property rights violations, and lift all foreign inves
tment restrictions beyond the negative list, giving equal treatment to all types of businesses. The country will vigorously advance economic and trade ne
gotiations, including making efforts for the early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and
expediting the talks on the China-EU investment agreement and the China-Japan-Republic of Korea free trade agreement.
On the one hand, Xi’s speech brought hope to the world economy at a time when glo
bal economic recovery is facing challenges and uncertainties thanks to the rise of trade protectionism and unila
teralism in some economies since 2017. In fact, protectionism and unilateralism have become an impediment to global growth.
ally those whole-heartedly trumpeting an all-round trade war.
But as Paulson also pointed out, what is at stake goes far above and beyond a trade war.
上海千花坊Which is why, despite their continuing differences, Beijing and Washington should work together to make the upcoming Xi-Trump meeting a success.
Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment
Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊
During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊
volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.
• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所
Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral
上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga
me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.
In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o
t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr
ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p
ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所
untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.
In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil
lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec
onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre
ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.
• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?
Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that
have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high
ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm
ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the
international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

In 2013, Yang heard a television commercial for the newly launched XuetangX, which only offered five classes at the
time. “But it was free, and from one of the best schools in the country. That gave me hope,” he said.
However, while signing up for classes was easy, the study process was anything but.
“I had to increase the font size of each character to that of an egg, an

Despite those difficulties, he completed about 15 courses and passed
every exam. He then put theory into practice by investing about 5,000 yuan in the stock mar

It’s a Sunday afternoon and Yang Haisong seems to be in a chipper mood. Under a blazing sun on a warm day in Beijing he sit

ead vocalist, is taking a break from activities in Free Sound, a record store in which he has been talking to fans about th
e band’s seventh studio album, What We Talk About When We Talk About His Name.
Yang hails from Nanjing, Jiangsu province, and it was there that P.K. 14 was formed nearly 22 y
ears ago before going on to become one of the most influential rock bands in China’s indie rock scene.
“I love record stores,” Yang, 46, says. “Of course listening to music
online through streaming services is incredibly conven
ient, but when I hold cassette tapes or vinyls in my hands I feel this connection with the music.”
The band’s latest album, released on Oct 14, 2018, was recorded in Be
rlin, and in addition to being streamed online, it was distributed on record and cassette.
