A group of boys on bicycles gather on a dusty side

Foot on pedal, 10-y上海龙凤女神会所ar-old Murtaja Qureiris is about to lead the group of a

round 30 children. In video footage obtained by CNN, he is wearing rolled up denim jean

s and black flip-flops on his feet, and grinning at the camera recor

ding the event. It may look like a regular bike ride, but the group is staging a protest.

Moments after they set off, Qureiris gets lost in the sea of boys, strug

gling to keep up as he lifts a megaphone and presses it against his lips. “The people demand human rights!” he shouts.

As a boy, Qureiris participated in demonstrations like this bike

ride, expressions of dissent in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province during the 2011 Arab Spring.

Growing economic dynamism will also serve as an impo

portant stabilizing factor, he said. China’s research and development spending ranks se

cond in the world, accounting for around 2.18 percent of its GDP, while emerging strategic industries, the

sharing economy and other new growth engines are also seeing continuous expansion.

The strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the solid material and technological foundation built through decad

es of rapid development in the era of reform and opening-up will also help shore up economic growth, he said.

He added that China also has enormous resilience, potential and flexibility in developm

ent, deep experience in macroeconomic regulation and ample space for policy adjustments.

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satellite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China Meteo

rological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

For example, in March, China provided a remote-sensing monitor repo

rt on flooding in Iran via Fengyun. The analysis estimated the coverage and ter

rain characteristics of the flooded area, which greatly assisted the country’s evacuation efforts.

China has launched 17 Fengyun series meteorological satellites, of which seven are currently operational.

The World Meteorological Organization has included China’s Fengyun serie

s of meteorological satellites as a major element of its global Earth observation system.

Huawei has said that it is willing to sign a “no-spy” agreeme

nt with countries that commit to its equipment. And this may po

nt to a reasonable solution as it offers a way out for international partners in the West, which h

ave been caught in the middle of the US-waged campaign against Huawei, to cooperate with the Chinese company.

The security of 5G networks is a technical issue, and it should be addressed as such. Security prin

ciples should be based on verifiable facts and technical data rather than ideology or a vendor’s country of origin.

However, judging by its ill treatment of Huawei since last year, t

he US will continue with its persecution and has no intention of changing its ways.

The victimization of Huawei shows the world’s largest economy no longer wants to uphold the core values that govern free trade

and fair market competition. And it is willing to use its superpower status, so that, by hook or by crook, it can obstruct co

mpetitors that might challenge its competitive edge in science and technology.

In the past several months, China has announced and

started to implement a “negative list” program that allows foreign co

mpanies to have 100 percent ownership in investments in all areas of the economy, excep

t for a small number of areas, such as telecoms and defense, that are explicitly prohibited.

Also, foreign investment has been simplified by creating a one-stop regulatory shop and a single application process.

These new policies will lead to greater competition within China, forcing C

hina’s companies to become more efficient and to produce higher quality products.

The Chinese government has also recently announced tax cuts and financial regulations desi

gned to help private companies. This will hasten the ongoing transition to a market-driven economy.

Most Chinese State-owned enterprises are not relevant to trade negotiations. Many are in non-tradable sectors such as p

roperty development, infrastructure, or concrete. Others are basically public utilities in telecoms or power.

China-led project expected to enhance space research

The ongoing China-led international collaboration project Tianq

in, a space-based gravitational wave detection syste

m scheduled to be completed by 2035, is expected to significantly improve unders

tanding of major cosmic phenomena, including black holes, scientists said.

Tianqin uses the Chinese words tian, meaning sk

y or heavens, and qin, meaning stringed musical instrument.

It will consist of three satellites forming an equilater

al triangle around Earth at an orbit of 100,000 kilometers.

Tianqin will work to detect gravitational waves, whic

h scientists theorize are ripples in the fabric of space-time caused by violen

t cosmic events, such as colliding black holes, supernovas and even the birth of the universe.
