um for Asia, that China will grant 5G licenses this year, but didn’t disclose a specific date.
“5G, industrial internet and the internet of vehicles are among the country’s top development priorities in the teleco
mmunications industry,” Zhang Feng, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, sa
id on Friday during the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.
Zhang called for accelerated efforts to set standards in key areas, including 5G, to expedite th
e commercialization of this forefront technology and bolster the nation’s core competitiveness.
Major Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies Co has already unveiled its first 5G chip and first 5G fol
dable smartphone, the Mate X, which is expected to hit the market in June, despite challenges involving the United States.
icts appear to have a religious or ethnic basis, some scholars believe their root cause may be economic, with ethnic divisio
s serving as a way to exclude other groups from access to scarce resources and opportunities. Whatever its so
urce, inequality of opportunity has a highly disruptive effect on governance and hence growth.
But these obstacles are not insurmountable. For one th
ing, developing countries now have huge potential export markets in middle-inc
ome countries, and no longer depend entirely on advanced economies for access to global markets.
Belt and Road can play vital development role
There is also a renewed awareness of the importance of infrastructure in e
nabling growth. In addition to roads, railways and ports, electricity and digital conn
ectivity are crucial. In this regard, the rapid expansion of cellular wireless technology, combined with the install
ation of high-capacity undersea broadband pipes around Africa, represents major prog
traded and they can redirect trade toward one country, away
from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account balance. A count
ry that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.
There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme
nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gove
rnment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.
Ironically, the disputes between the US and China center around both nations’ legitimate desires to
protect some current low-skilled jobs, or at least to allow an easier transition to new jobs and industries.
US administration’s economic policy has rightly focused on the need to
retain jobs for working-class people in the US. And, China’s companies that export to the U
ent. External critics of China don’t appreciate that Chinese themselves realize there
are issues to be addressed. They are doing so. These developments should be encouraged.”
President Xi Jinping, who spoke at the Second Belt and Road Foru
m for International Cooperation in Beijing recen
tly, listed areas in which China will improve the environment for foreign investment.
The president said the nation will work hard to create a business environ
ment that respects the value of intellectual prop
erty, will improve the legal system for IPR protection at all levels, will strengthen law enforcement and pr
otection for the legitimate rights and interests of foreign IP owners and will bar the
forced transfer of technology, improve protection of trade secrets and crack down on infringement.

Chen Kun is a very sensitive, delicate, high-performance, showing a unique melancholy
temperament. Even playing the soft role of “Yuhua Tian” can surprise many girls.
Recently, when Chen Kun participated in an event, fans and passers-by all knew that Chen Kun would appear.
Everyone was surrounded by three layers of interior and three layers of periphery. When Chen Kun appeared under the
protection of staff and bodyguards, the crowd immediately burst into excitement. Everyone was calling Chen Kun’s name,
hoping that the idol could see his side. Chen Kun wore a black down suit that day. His long black hair was also pinched by a black hairpin. As he walked, he folded his hands together to thank the fans for their enthusiasm.
At first, Chen Kun followed the staff. When he was halfway there, a passer-by shouted, “Yang Kun, how handsome!” As a result, Chen Kun, who had already taken several steps, turned around and corrected the passers-by seriously: Chen Kun, not Yang Kun.
Chen Kun’s serious corrective expression not only made passers-by laugh, but also the assistant beside Chen Kun could not help laughing.
Chen Kun corrected the mistake and looked at the passer-by with a firm eye. Then he was pulled forward by the assistant.
The passer-by nodded and laughed. Estimate is also a slip of the tongue, although Yang Kun and Chen Kun
are only one word apart, are also stars, but the difference in appearance is several grades.
On the evening of the 27th, Chen Kunfawen responded suspiciously to the video with the wrong name and wrote,
“When the plane landed, they turned on their mobile phones. I just got up.
I was a little embarrassed to hear my voice in a video. The other party looked up and stayed there for a while.
Suddenly he laughed, and I laughed embarrassingly. The beauty of life lies in coincidence.”
I didn’t expect Chen Kun to be such a real person in private, but do fans like Chen Kun also have new skills to stop idols?
