Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowme

“Since their issues do not involve critical technologies, the

The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distri
bution, ages, gender ratio, birth and deaths of wild pandas, who live in deep mountains and are hard to tr
ack,” said Chen Peng, a researcher with the base who co-authored a paper on “Giant Panda Face Recognition Using Small Database.”
“It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals,” Chen said.
China has carried out four scientific field research project of giant pandas in the wild.
The giant panda was scientifically discovered 150 years ago and n
amed in the city of Ya’an, Sichuan. It remains one of the world’s most endangered species.
The number of captive pandas was 548 globally as of November last y

China will continue to conduct joint law enforcement operations with other countries targeti

“We have been encouraging domestic and overseas enterprises to conduct exchanges on t

Perhaps the blame for the breakdown in the talks should be laid at the door of the mind-set o

bstacles to those that Asian and Latin American platforms previously had to overcome, including a
lack of reliable payment systems, low trust between buyers and sellers, and logistics and deliv
ry bottlenecks. But the experience of other regions shows that these shortcomings can be addressed over time.
Internet regulations must not be disruptive
The bigger risk to these platforms stems from the inevitable and necessary increase in regulation of the internet arou
nd the world. In particular, diverse national regulatory regimes may inadvertently or deliberately disrupt or bloc

The decision was made at the State Council’s executive meeting, chaired by Premier Li Keqiang on Sunday.
Participants at the meeting agreed that the government’s efforts in recent years to repeal unwarranted certification requ

Oct 1, 1949, the Chinese people began leaving behind a century of colonial humiliation and building a new life.
What remains poorly understood by the wider world even seven decades later is how dire were
the conditions in China during those days. While China sustained its triumph, Chinese people’s living stan

It was a dire starting point.
Transitions that raised China’s living standard
In the late 1970s, Deng Xiaoping introduced “reform and opening-up” policies
and established special economic zones, which ultimately facilitated China’s entry int
cult to legally protect in the past, causing “huge trouble for American tech

The latest amendments to the Anti-Unfair Competition Law, which unde
