For example, at the Lian上海419论坛Hangzhou, Zhejian

g province, which dates from 5,300 to 4,500 years ago, archaeologists unearthed a hug

e dam 3.5 kilometers long and more than 10 meters thick. Ruins of the city cover 3 million square met上海419论坛

ers, and the city’s walls are 40 to 60 meters thick. The discovery was made possible with remote sensing technology.

上海419论坛”In the city center, we found a terrace that is 630 meters by 450 meters,” he said. “Some of the foundations are as large as 900 square meters.”

He estimated that the entire city would have taken 10,000 people a decade or longer to build.上海419论坛女神会所

“It hardly would have been possible for a tribe or a league of tribes to mobilize so many

上海419论坛people,” Wang said. “That indicated a time of early-stage states with wide influence.”

Division of labor, hierarchical social classes and inequality in wealth were also observed when studying the Taosi Site (from

4,300 to 4,100 years ago) in Xiangfen county, Shanxi province, and several other key sites of “huge city ruins”, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The relics are from what is believed to have been the capital of Emperor Ya

o, a legendary ancient ruler. Some markings were discovered that are believed to be a pro

上海419论坛女神会所totype of written characters, but they appear to have been used exclusively within a small group of ruling elites.

“Around 5,000 years ago, some regions along the Yangtze River, the Yellow River and the western bank

of Liaohe River (in Northeast China) stepped into the age of civilization,” Wang said. Those ancient sta上海419论坛

tes, he said, “controlled certain territory, but had economic, political and cultural connections with each other”.

上海419论坛女神会所During the time of the Erlitou Site (3,750 to 3,550 years ago), in Luoyang, Henan province, China entered what is often called the age of dynasties, Wang said.

“Erlitou marked the time when the Central China plain began to widely influence上海419论坛

the surrounding areas,” he said. “It created a foundation for a united country with multiethnic groups.”

Speaking of how to define “civilization”, Zhao Hui, a professor at Peking University

上海419论坛女神会所who is in charge of the project, said traditional criteria in Western academia, which emphasize the ap

pearance of written characters and metallurgy, have not strictly been used in this project.

Liangzhu and several other early civilizations in China, h上海419论坛女神会所

owever, are known for their highly developed techniques in making jade articles.

上海419论坛女神会所”Some characters of human development are common,” Zhao said. “The

difference also shows there are some unique characters in early Chinese civilization.”

He said Chinese civilization also absorbed influences from other civilizations. Archaeological discoveries sho

w wheat cultivation, breeding of cattle and sheep, and bronze-making technology in China originated in We

stern and Central Asia and were later adopted and acquired local characteristics.

Zhu Zengyong, a resear上海419论坛 the Chinese Academy

 of Agricultural Sciences, said that with sharp declines in the supply of

pork in China, domestic pork consumption has declined since the second half of last year.

Zhu predicted a further decline in production and consu上海419论坛女神会所

上海419论坛mption this year, and a gap of 5 to 10 percent between supply and demand.

“As an alternative to pork, poultry will see a noticeable increase in

supply in the next two years, which will ease shortages in pork supplies,” he said.

Pork accounts for more than 60 percent of meat production in China上海419论坛

, said Xin Guochang, an information monitoring official at the ministry.

Authorities have been adapting swine fever controls and prevention measures since late last year to effectively contain the infec上海419论坛女神会所

tious disease, which has a high mortality rate for pigs but is not transmittable to humans, Xin said at the Gl

obal Pig Industry Conference hosted by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing on Thursday.

上海419论坛For example, all hogs within 3 kilometers of farms where swine fever had been verified used to be slaughtered for dise

ase prevention and control. Now, more sophisticated calculations are made to determine the area targeted for s

laughter so that farmers without infected animals are more easily able to maintain production, he said.上海419论坛女神会所

The government has been transparent in disclosing information about swi

ne fever outbreaks, Xin said. “But it cannot be entirely ruled out that some pig farmers fa

上海419论坛女神会所iled to report outbreaks to authorities, according to regulations, for various reasons,” he added.

Li Shuilong, president of the China Meat Association, said that although African swine fever has caused serious damage to the

country’s pork sector, it has also provided a good opportunity for the domestic industry to upgrade operations an上海419论坛女神会所

d address problems such as poor sanitation conditions and overuse of vaccines and drugs.

Located in the core area of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Ar上海夜网

ea, SSGKC is 25 kilometers from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and almost 35 km from do

wntown Guangzhou, Guangdong’s capital.上海夜网女神会所

Besides the completion of a subway network linking SSGKC to the re

st of Guangzhou by the end of this year, in the future the area will also be connected to o

上海夜网ther cities and provinces by eight rail lines, five roads and seven urban expressways.

“We have favorable locations, a strong research institute, a State-level pilot zone for IP protection and improved transportation network and efficient o

perations, which ensure SSGKC will be an ideal destination for investment,” the official added.上海夜网女神会所

SSGKC is designed to cover a total greenfield area of 123 sq km. But about half of the area has been earmarked for urban use, during the 15 to 20 year de

velopment period from the 2010 ground-breaking ceremony, while the other half will be preserved as green spaces.

上海夜网Ultimately, the knowledge city will house a population of 500,000 a

nd become a vibrant place for all to “live, work, learn and play”, its designers have said.

To date, the project’s startup phase, with an area of 6.27 sq km, has been substantially completed.上海夜网女神会所

According to official figures, more than 1,000 companies have registered with SSGKC since 2010, with an aggregate regist

Both parties agreed to enhance connectivity to create an internationally renowned think tank brand together, by poolin上海后花园女神会所

上海后花园g the ideas of experts, planning research and holding a series of activities such as forums, meetings and seminars to promote exchanges.

The projects are expected to contribute to the knowledge city’s sustainable growth and join its already considerable facilities.

The China National Intellectual Property Administration has established a patent examination cooperation center within the k上海后花园女神会所

nowledge city. The facility contributed one-fifth of the total number of annual patent examinations processed in China.

In addition, SSGKC is also the first in China to set up a national-level Belt and Road Intellectual Property Services Center.上海后花园

Together with an IP-dedicated court and provincial centers for IP p

上海后花园女神会所The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is expected to

attract a further influx of dynamic investment and professionals – thanks to closer coo

Officials said SSGKC’s importance continues to grow, and the iconic project for Sino上海后花园女神会所

Situated at the heart of Pearl River Delta Region and in a massive greenfield site in the southe

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment

Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊

During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊

volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.

• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所

Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral

上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga

me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.

In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o

t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr

ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p

ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所

untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.

In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil

lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec

onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre

ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.

• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?

Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that

have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high

ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm

ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the

international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.
