Also on Friday, shortly after the US said it would ban Hua

 Huawei from buying US technology without special approval, Huawei’s chipmaking arm, HiSilico

n, said it has long been prepared for the “extreme scenario” of the US blocking access to some components and technologies.

“We have been developing backup products for years in anticipation. … Such efforts can ensure the strategic safety of most of the

company’s products and a continuous supply of most products,” said HiSilicon President He Tingbo in an internal letter.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a news conference

on Friday that the development and utilization of 5G depends on global cooperation, and i

nterference by the US undermines the principle of fair competition and shows a lack of respect for other countries.

HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chipsets like Kirin, which has b

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.

Quarterly earnings growth augurs well for A-share firms

Improved earnings of companies listed on mainland bourses during the first quarter of the year augur well for the full-ye

ar financial results and are an indication of the vitality the Chinese economy, analysts said.

During the January to March period, aggregate profits of A-share compan

ies topped 1 trillion yuan ($147.6 billion) and grew 9.4 percent year-on-year, reversing a fu

ll-year decline of 1.9 percent last year, data from Shanghai-based information provider Wind Info showed.

Meanwhile, aggregate return on equity (ROE)-a major gauge of

profitability-stood at 9.8 percent, intact from the whole-year of 2018.

“Given that the downtrend in economic growth had largely eased by the end of the first quarter, the aggregate ROE of A-shar

e companies has probably hit the bottom,” said Xu Gao, chief economist at Everbright Securities Asset Management Co Ltd.

“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

rip bookings surged by 80 percent compared with the same period of last year.

Domestic trips cost roughly 4,500 yuan ($663) per capita on ave

rage, while expenditures hit 21,000 yuan for outbound experiences, the agency reports.

Parents from Shanghai, Beijing and Guangdong province’s Guangz

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.

hang Jun, head of the Xichang branch of the Liangshan forest fire briga

de, and his team members went back to Xichang from Muli on Wednesday. Recalling the er

uptive fire, Zhang said it had been the first blaze of its kind he’d encountered in a dozen years of firefighting, China News Serv

ice reported. “I was at the south part of the fire, when I heard a blare and saw a mushroom cloud about 50 to 60 meters hig

h rising from the valley. Two to three minutes later, dense smoke began to fall and the communication equipment didn’t work.”

Zhang divided his team during the firefighting. One of them, consisting of 10 firefighters, only had four escape with their lives.

Zhao Maoyi still sees his dead teammate four days after the eruptive fire. When his team decided to evacu

ate after hearing blasts, the fire spread to their location from the foot of a mountain in seconds. They were blocked by a huge l

og. “I pushed one onto the log and used my last strength to climb over the log. When I looked back, I saw the desperate look

on an 18-year-old teammate,” Zhao cried. “I dream about him every night, I hear him saying ‘give me a hand'”.

As a professional writer, Chu has interviewed dozens of peop

 from across the country who moved to Dali. She and her husband, who help organize activities

such as gardening, hiking and cycling for newcomers, have a big circle of friends who have relocated to the city.

“People have different reasons for leaving, ranging from the need to take care of elderly pare

nts who have stayed in their hometowns, to taking their children back to big cities for better education,” she said.

People are also leaving because after two or three years without work, they need to find paid employment.

In recent years, thousands of people have moved to Dali from big cities. The exact number is not kno

wn, but a rough estimate from the local government shows that about 40,000 newcomers are living in the city.

Many people decided to leave their jobs and move to Dali from large cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong pro

vince, due to work pressures and surging property prices, which have been hotly debated nationwide in recent years.

High-tech manufacturing, the service industry and the digi

ital economy will be the new engines for the economy, while some traditional driv

ing forces, such as injecting funds into the market, are losing momentum, Zhu said.

China’s total GDP exceeded 90 trillion yuan ($13.4 trillion) in 2018, and the per capita GDP was

about $9,700. Economists predict that if the country maintains growth of at least 6 percent this

year, which is likely given the current momentum, its per capita GDP this year would surpass $10,000.

That means China would move closer to the standards for a “high-inco

me country” — above $12,736 in per capital GDP — set by the World Bank in 2015.

However, a productivity slowdown, aging population and unbalanced regional development could be among the “bot

tlenecks” that constrain China in becoming a high-income country, economists said.

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.
