gic nature of the China-Italy relations in the long term, and comp
rehensively elevate the level of their mutually beneficial cooperation, Xi said.
China is willing to enhance high-level guidance with the Italian side, respect each other
‘s major concerns, jointly build the Belt and Road, explore cooperation with third parties, boost cu
ltural exchanges and local-level cooperation, and strengthen popular support for bilateral relations, Xi said.
The Chinese president stressed that in recent years, China’s National People’s Congress and the Italian Senate have established a regular exchange mechanism.
China supports the two countries’ legislative bodies to carry out multi-level, wide-ranging and multi-channel exch
anges and cooperation, and share successful experience on major issues such as legislative supe
rvision, state governing, national economy and the people‘s livelihood, on the basis of mutual respect and mutual learning, Xi said.
mental illness and not go back to work until he recovered.”The utmost goal is like Zhuge Liang (of the Three Kingd
oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno
wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”
“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red
Star News. The auditing office of Xuhui district hasn’t responded to comment as of press time.
Shen also denied online rumors that he graduated from Fudan University and once lost a daughter to a car crash.
“I have never been married, so how could I have a daughter,” he retorted. “Me, a Fudan graduate? Fudan was far out of my league.”
After days of being bombarded with visits and interviews from curious citizens or online streamers, who
are tapping into his sudden popularity for public exposure, Shen said he hopes he can be left alone so as to read more books.
our exhibitions,” he said.
The CCTV cameras also are used to safeguard the museum’s precious relics. More than 1.86 milli
on of them are housed at the museum, which logged 17.5 million visits from the public in 2018, topping all museums worldwide.
“How can we make sure no single visitor who might have evil ideas threatens these treasures?” Shan sa
id. “After adopting the internet of things, we can instantly detect any motion involving the artifacts to prevent such threats.”
Such a networked system also will be used to facilitate management of inventory and closely supervise transportation and exhibition of cultural relics.
New technologies can assist the museum staff in other ways, too, said Wang Tao, a member of Huawei’s board of directors.
The company will use algorithms to more efficiently draft tailored plans for restorin
g cultural relics after information on similar pieces and files on each collection are included in a database.
“We can thus combine old craftsmen’s experience and artificial intelligence,” Wang said.
The 5G network also will be used to improve remote consultation through webcams, which will facilitate conver
sations with overseas scholars to jointly find the best answers for restoration and preservation issues, he said.
ment plan should fit with national strategies in development, security and the milita
ry, and should integrate their current and future needs to pursue sustainable, consistent growth.
Xi insisted on the military understanding the determination and intention of the Party’s leadership, exerting itself to en
hance combat preparedness and firmly safeguarding China’s sovereignty, safety, development interests, and social stability.
He also instructed the military to support the country’s economic and social development, environmental endeavors and d
isaster and accident relief work. It should also play its part in poverty alleviation, he added.
Governments at all levels should, in turn, support the military’s work, make appropriate arrangements for veterans’ empl
oyment, take good care of military retirees with physical difficulties and the family members of military personnel, and s
upport the military’s efforts to withdraw from all its commercial activities, Xi said.
sformation from high-speed economic growth to high quality development, its econo
my has reached a period of significant strategic opportunity. By 2035, China is e
xpected to achieve socialist modernization with its per capita GDP reaching 35,000 int
ernational dollars in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP). While the United States reached that level in 198
8, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Japan did so in 1998, 2001, 2003 and 2004, respectively.
But to realize that goal, China has to solve several significant long-term problems. First, it has to mai
ntain high total factor productivity (TFP), which at present is only 43 percent that of the US, whereas whe
n the main developed countries achieved economic modernization, their TFP was about 78 percent that of the US. To in
crease its TFP in the following years, therefore, China should expedite systemic reform in order to let the mar
ket play a leading role in factor distribution and give full play to factor efficiency.
