ave had a negative impact on the Chinese economy, but it has shown resilience in coping with the shocks, and the repercussions have not been as severe as pred
icted. In January, for instance, Chinese exports rose 9.1 percent from a year earlier, compared with a 3.5 percent declin
e in December, according to customs data released on Thursday. And although its export growth to the US continued t
relations with a deal that is in line with the interests of both countries. If that has been the shared und
erstanding during this week’s talks, and it is carried forward in the negotiations in Wa
shington next week, hopefully the two sides will be able to narrow the differences between them sufficiently so that the t
o drop, no doubt due to the raised tariffs on Chinese goods, China’s shipments to other major
markets, such as the European Union, Japan and Southeast Asia, all rose strongly.
Meanwhile, leyishengpxcn/ions otherwise, the US economy has not rem

Cooperation based on fully respecting mutual interests is the best way for t

China is expected to generate 48.6 zettabytes (48.6 trillion gigabytes) of data in 2025, while the number for the US is forecast to be
30.6ZB, according to a study by the International Data Corporation (IDC) and data storage firm Seagate, a CNBC report said.
In addition, the global total amount of new data generated is set to grow from 33ZB in 2018 to 175ZB by
2025, with data collected from entertainment platforms, video surveillance footage, internet-co
nnected devices, productivity tools and metadata contributing to most of the growth, according to the report.
In the race for data, which, as IDC analysts put in their report, is
“at the heart of this digital world” and “a company’s most valuable intangible a
sset, which can create a competitive edge in digital transformation”, there is already a victory sign coming from China.
The country generated about 7.6ZB data last year, around 0.7ZB more than the US, the report said.

Tam Yiu-chung, a Hong Kong member of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, the country’s top legislat

Hong Kong will thus have a clearer direction for future development, and better understand how it can fully contribute, Tam said.
The Greater Bay Area encompasses Hong Kong and Macao, as well as nine cities in Guangdon

In 2017, the 11 cities produced one-eighth of China’s gross domestic product while containin

BEIJING, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) — China announced Monday that it is developing the modified version of the Long March-6 rocket with four additional solid boosters to increase its carrying capacity.
The improved medium-left carrier rocket will be sent into space by 2020, according to the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology under the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASTC), which designed the rocket.
With a short launch preparation cycle, the Long March-6 has been mainly used for the academy’s commercial launches. The rocket completed two space tests in September 2015 and November 2017, carrying 20 satellites and three satellites, respectively.
The three-stage rocket is 29.3 meters long, with a launch weight of 103 tonnes. It has a carrying capacity of one tonne for sun-synchronous orbit.
Fueled by a liquid propellant made of liquid oxygen and kerosene, the Long
March-6 is China’s first carrier rocket that uses non-toxic and non-polluting fuel.
Ding Xiufeng, executive manager of the Long March-6 project, said in response to the growing demand for commercial launches, the
y will have the rockets’ market competitiveness enhanced through technical improvements, so that t
hey can provide easier, faster and more comprehensive services to users at home and abroad.
In January, the China Great Wall Industry Corporation, affiliated wi
th the CASTC, signed a multiple launch services agreement with Satellogic to use the Long
March-6 and the Long March-2 rockets to launch 90 satellites for a private Argentine company in the coming years.
The first 13 satellites will be delivered late
r this year. It will be the first time for the Long March-6 to provide launch services for an international user.
