ess. And the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiativ althoug

ugh criticized by much of the West, and the US in particular-could bring dramatic

improvements in physical and digital connectivity to Central Asia and parts of Africa.

Further advances in critical infrastructure will create important growth opportunities for developing countries via e-commerce, mobile paym

ents, and related financial services. The experience of China suggests that these digital platforms, and the ecosy

stems that develop around them, are powerful engines for incremental, highly inclusive growth.

China, of course, is a very large, homogenous market. If smaller, lower-income developing countries are to bene

fit from equally rapid inclusive growth, the digital platforms will have to be regional and international in scope.

competitors. This was the policy followed by the US in the

 in the 19th century and by Western Europe, Japan, and South Korea in the years after World War II.

China is no longer a poor country. It can no longer compete by using l

ow-wage labor. Fortunately, it has now developed world-class companies that are incr

easingly developing new products and services that can compete successfully in many foreign markets.

Now that it has reached middle-income status, China’s economic strategy will focus on creating a highly competitive dom

estic market that forces companies to produce high-value goods so they can pay high wages to highly skilled people.

Because of its long experience in manufacturing, much of th

at push will be focused on higher value-added production, using the new technologies of rob

otics, artificial intelligence, the internet of things and 5G. This is the only way to avoid the middle-income trap.

Paul Tapponnier, a distinguished research professor at the

 administration’s Institute of Crustal Dynamics, said he “wholeheartedly” welcomes the project. China boasts unique

conditions to carry out the experiment as most of its earthquakes occur “inside the land under the feet of th

e people” rather than in the ocean, and there are many active faults in the country.

“My personal hope is that if there is any way or any future in trying

to forecast earthquakes, it may very well happen in C

hina,” said Tapponnier, also foreign associate member of the United States’ National Academy of Sciences.

According to the administration, the country is stricken by an average 20 earthqua

kes above magnitude 5 every year. There is an earthquake above magnitude 8 every decade. Since the turn of

the new millennium, more than 91,800 people have been killed by earthquakes in the country.

“Products that just scratch the surface, like simple tours of famous universities, have fallen out of favor with the market,” Zhang says.

Language training, NASA’s space camp, computer programming, homes

tays, wild animal care and desert and museum experiences are among the most popular options.

“Certain volunteering and public-welfare routes have seen a particularly fast increase in bookings,” Zhang says.

During the recent winter vacation in February, study-t

The industrial park sits on nearly 26 hectares of land in

Ballard County and has been set up to use the carp acquired by the fish center. Twelve tracts of land inside the park are for sale.

On opening day, eight tracts were already claimed, with most of the investors coming from China.

Jiang Chenguang, an internet businessman from the Guangxi

Zhuang autonomous region, launched the United Fisheries Group to process carp into fish balls

and fish cakes for export to China. Two Rivers Foods will process smoked fish, and has already shipped a smoker to the site.

A business called Lakeside City has been formed to process carp into salted fish, while

Eco Fish, which already existed, has hired fishermen to catch carp, process them and recycle waste into fertilizer.

Zhu Hongwei, a hotel and catering businessman from Jiangsu province, decided on the day the indus

trial park opened to buy one tract of land for food processing. “I will decide how to process the fish later,” Zhu said.

Akihito walks for a ritual called Taiirei-Toashikodokoro

Earlier in the day, Akihito reported his abdication in sanctuaries i

nside the Imperial Palace, including one honouring the sun goddess Amaterasu Omikami, from

whom mythology says the imperial line is descended, and two others for departed emperors and Shinto gods.

Video aired on NHK public television showed Akihito, wearing a dark orange traditional robe and black headdress, wal

king slowly into the first sanctuary as a courtier in a white robe walked behind holding the train and another carried a sword.

Era names, or “gengo” as they are known in Japanese, are used in Japan for the length of a monarch’s reign.

The new era name, Reiwa, meaning beautiful harmony, was announced by the government on April 1.

New era names are usually announced after the accession of the new monarch, but the

government decided to announce the new name in advance of the accession of the new emperor.

Crown Prince Naruhito conducted a similar ceremony, NHK said.

These old TV series are such classics, that the storyli

lines and the acting were not the problem,” says Pei Yinxiang, an IT engineer from Youku. “There was something wrong with the quality of the images.”

While vintage roles and stories may be able to survive the test of time,

the pictures cannot. When the blurred images and dark colors flicker onto the scree

ns of modern digital devices, which are set up for high-definition viewing, the viewers’ lukewarm response was easy to predict.

“The original tapes were often scratched or tarnished by mildew after being stored for such a lo

ng time,” Pei explains. “You can imagine what they will look like on online streaming media.”

Consequently, Youku launched a project to digitally restore these old drama series in November.

While the restoration of old films is commonplace in the movie indus

try, this kind of work on TV series is rare in China, largely because of the length of time it takes.

ent organizations, including stock image platforms, have been debatable and remain a key issue among lawmakers,” she said.

“I believe such copyright agencies will be regulated in the future version of the law after Visual

China’s incident, and our IP protection will also be further strengthened thanks to the case,” she added.

Different from many comments that criticized the company and its business, Chen sai

d it is “Okay” for stock image platforms to profit from selling images or filing copyright lawsuits.

“Proper commercial operations can help defend the rights of individual creators, as it is difficult a

nd costly for individuals to sift through seas of information and find out who infringes their rights,” she said. “Or su

ch platforms create a better environment for copyright owners to easily and effectively safeguard their rights.”

But she suggested the country set up a third-party to supervise

the platforms’ operation to prevent them from exercising the rights beyond the legal scope.
