“And plans to build data infrastructure, such as cloud computing and data centers, have been made in the integrated development of the region.”

The report also surveyed AI education in China, which has started at all levels. More than 30 univers

ities have opened schools on AI, and 75 established AI majors or interdisciplinary majors with AI.

Under the trade pressure, the world’s second-largest econo

onomy is accelerating restructuring reform and shifting from an export-dominated growth model to a more services-driven model, they added.

“The United States escalated trade tensions, but it cannot solve any problem. This causes volatility and sluggishness in global financial markets an

d hurts the global economy,” said Guo Shuqing, the People’s Bank of China’s Party secretary and also head of the China Banking and In

surance Regulatory Commission. His keynote speech was delivered by a commission spokesman at a forum on Saturday.

Impact on the Chinese economy will be very limited, said Guo. “Chinese fi

nancial markets, although they were excessively affected by trade tensions last year, are un

likely to be hit more dramatically going forward, as financial resilience is strengthening.”

The huge domestic consumer market in China will digest most of the un

salable exports, and many of China’s exports will also shift to other foreign markets. The US will con

Pompeo said in an interview with CNBC that, “We’ve been

working at the State Department to make sure that everyone understands the risks.”

“Recently, some US politicians have repeatedly made rumors about Huawei but canno

t provide any evidence that other countries have requested,” Lu told a daily news conference.

He noted that the US public is having more and more doubts over the market turbulen

ce and undermined industrial cooperation caused by the trade war and technology war initiated by the US.

“So some US politicians have continually created rumors, tr

ying to mislead the public and stir up ideological opposition, which is illogical,” Lu said.

Ideological differences do not necessarily impede tra

de, industrial and technological cooperation between countries, he said.

Xi hailed Zhang’s deeds, saying the elderly hero hid the

 for more than 60 years and stayed true to his original aspirations. As a s

oldier, Zhang defended the country; as a civilian, he works for the people’s well-being, Xi said.

Zhang lives a life of simplicity, purity and indifference to fame and fortune, serving as a role

model for military officers, rank-and-file soldiers and veterans across the country, Xi said.

Zhang, a member of the CPC, was a soldier of Brigade 359 of the Northwest Field Ar

my, one of the main forces of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army during the Liberation War between 1945 and 1949.

He was honored by the Northwest Field Army sever

mers eat at a hotpot restaurant in Wuhan, capital of Hubei

In addition, a thread on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like comments platfor

m, titled “eating alone” contains 226,000 posts and has garnered 290 million hits.

In 2017, WithEating Magazine, a Chinese foodie journal, started its Eati

ng Alone channel on Bilibili, a popular video-sharing website. To date, the channel, wh

ich has 52 episodes explaining how to prepare meals for one, has attracted more than 200 million hits.

In February, the magazine published a book of the same name, listing 65 recipes for dishes ranging fr

om desserts to foreign cuisine, such as roasted ribs, the Korean favorite bibimbap and seafood curry.

To many people’s surprise, it became a best-seller. “We didn’t expect the book to sell so we

ll. We didn’t print enough copies initially,” the magazine said on its Weibo account last month.

The resident of Chengdu, Sichuan province, is a popular vlogge

and his reviews of digital appliances have won him more than 124,000 fans on social media.

He had never eaten hotpot alone before. However, he happened to be in

Beijing on business and when he heard the restaurant offered stuffed toys as co

mpanions for solo diners he decided to visit and produce a vlog so his fans would know how it felt.

Knowing that a large number of unattached people often

spend festivals alone, Pu hoped his vlog would help them enjoy their solitude.

Even though he was the only solo diner in the restaurant, Pu said he didn’t feel at all awk

ward eating with a toy companion. The vlog showed him eating casually, occasionally scrolling through his phone, an

d having a video chat with his family. The restaurant was full of diners, but no one gave him a second glance.

“Overall, it was very enjoyable; the only thing was that I can’t eat too much so I only ordered a small amount of food,” he said.

Lu’s comment followed US Treasury Secretary Steven Mn

nuchin’s comments on Wednesday that he is hopeful that both countries can “go back to the table”.

Lu told a Foreign Ministry news briefing that China has reiterated that it

s door is always open, but negotiations must be meaningful and conducted with sincerity.

“A mutually beneficial deal must be based on mutual respect, equality and win-win outcomes,” he said.

The US, out of political purposes, has used its state power to groundlessly suppress Chinese te

ch firms, which has severely affected the global development and cooperation in science and technology, he said.

It has also damaged the interests of businesses of relevant countri

es and will not win the approval and support of the international society, he added.

“Apparently it will not help create a good atmosphere for the negotiations,” he said.
