“Currently, the robot can inspect farms automatically and collect dat亚博贵宾龙凤1314

Washington should face the matter of deficit squarely: former vice-premier
The “real” trade imbalance between the world’s two largest economies has long been overstated b
亚博贵宾龙凤1314女神会所y 20 percent. Better data would give a more balanced picture of Sino-US trade and reflect the gains th
at both sides derive from their economic relationship, said former Chinese Vice-Premier Zeng Peiyan.
There has always been divergence between Chinese and US figures on the bilateral trade gap due to the different met
hods used. Current methods omit trade in services from the trade balance, overlooking China’s role in processing tr亚博贵宾龙凤1314女神会所
ade, and thus overestimating the trade deficit, Zeng told a seminar in Hong Kong on Tuesday.
The two-day event, themed “US-China Trade and Economic Relatio
ns: What Now, What Next”, invited former government officials, industry re亚博贵宾龙凤1314
presentatives and academics from home and abroad to share their insights on the year-old Sino-US trade friction, w
hich has become the single most important factor in the global economy and markets.
亚博贵宾龙凤1314女神会所According to Chen, the robot is still a prototype and on the basis of that the two sides hope to step u
p investments to develop versatile robots that can even pick fruit with a bionic hand in the future.
“Based on the mass agricultural data and images we have acquired, we hope to build an optimized plant growth model to ach
ieve automatic control of the growth environment and early warning of pests and diseases,” Chen added.亚博贵宾龙凤1314女神会所

rrived in the United States from China. A stone was placed there, engraved with Zhang’s name in both English and Chinese.
For nearly two years, defense lawyers have been preparing their case for Brendt Christensen, a former University of Illi
nois doctoral student who is charged with kidnapping, torturing and killing the 26-year-old scholar from China.
On Wednesday, in the federal courtroom of the central Illinois city of Peoria, a 90-minute drive from the cam
pus, in front of Zhang’s family members, friends, reporters－and 12 jurors－it took defense atto
rney George Tesseff less than one minute to stun the courtroom by saying Christensen had indeed killed Zhang.
The surprise admission was part of the defense attorney’s strategy to focu
s on why his client’s life should be spared when the trial resumes on Monday.
?two female Chi亚博贵宾龙凤1314女神会所nese climbers: Ma Liyamu from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, and Tsang Yin Hung from Hong Kong.
For Ma and Tsang, it was their second ascent to the summit of Mount Qomolangma, as Ma had reached th
e top of the mountain in 2016, and Tsang conquered it in 2017. But for Sun, this was her first such experience.
“What surprised me when I reached the top was the shadow of Mount Qom
olangma on other mountains. It was simply magnificent and stunning and it was a heavenly experience,” she shared.
Growing up, Sun didn’t have any aspirati
ons to climb Mount Qomolangma, but she loved drawing, especially nature and mountain scenes.
Having worked as a designer, she had some mountaineering exp
erience after climbing Mount Manaslu in September last year. Before she came into contact w
ith Ma, it was not in her mind to form an all-female, all-Chinese team to summit the mountain.
?question whether the US is really trying to improve the DPRK-US relationship and it is wondering whe
ther its previous steps to promote engagement with Washington were the right thing to do.
In what was the most comprehensive review of Pyongyang’s recent i
nteraction with Washington, the DPRK leader put the ball decisively back in Was
hington’s court after the US president floated the idea of a third summit on Thursday.
Washington maintains unabated zeal for a deal of some sort, because ot
herwise the engagement with Pyongyang since last year
would be regarded as failure. So, more likely than not, it will try to find a way to keep the possibility of a summit alive.
But the “correct manner” Pyongyang demands is Washington forsaking its “max
imum pressure” and demonstrating sufficient goodwill by relieving, or completely rollin
g back, sanctions, putting an end to the state of war, or, even better, offering economic incentives.
?Lagos–Kano standard gauge project, the first standard gauge railway in Nigeria and West A
frica, was officially inaugurated and started commercial operation on July 26, 2016.
The railway, constructed by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, is the first overseas railway fully adopting the Chinese r
ailway standard. Spanning 186.5 kilometers, it alleviates traffic tension, improves the investment envir
onment and promotes the coordinated development of regional economy and society.
By Jan 11, the train service had delivered 1.23 million passengers and had safely operated for 900 days without any major accident recorded since its inception.
The China-funded Colombo Port City, the largest project between C
hina and Sri Lanka under the Belt and Road Initiative, completed land reclamation of 269 hectares in January.
In addition, hydro-structure construction will be completed by the middle
of this year. The port city’s municipal facilities construction is expected to be completed in J
uly 2020. At the same time, investment promotion of the city is also being carried out.
