Such a hegemonic mentality actually poses a threat to the

 world’s peaceful exploration of space and the peaceful exploitation of it for the benefit of all people on Earth.

It is with this mentality that the report catalogs and details supposed threats Russia and China may pose to the US in space.

For the US, there is no justice and fairness when it comes to its relations with other co

untries, especially when it assumes that its dominance in a particular area is being challenged.

Those who have written the report have listed threats that are anything but real. The

US assumptions about the threats only serve to justify what it wants to do. I

n other words, the US is only making a case for maintaining its dominance in space technology.

The “Space Force” the US administration has proposed, which will see huge amounts of reso

urces devoted to pushing the US military capabilities in space, is what it really intends to achieve by p

ositing that other countries with space technology pose a threat to its national security.

The central authorities plan to adopt the National VIemission

The bureau is soliciting public opinion on the draft until Feb 20.

With the new standard, major polluting gas from light-duty vehicles, including ca

rbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide, will be reduced by about 50 percent and em

issions of particulate matter will be reduced by about 40 percent, according to the bureau.

For heavy-duty diesel-powered trucks, the emissions of nitrogen oxide and particulate matter are expected to drop by more than 60 percent, it said.

Mobile sources, mainly vehicles, contributed 45 percent of locally generated

hazardous particles known as PM2.5 in 2017, outnumbering all other types of sources, according to the bureau.

Beijing has seen continuous improvement in its air quality. The PM2.5 density in th

e capital in 2018 stood at 51 micrograms per cubic meter, down by 12.1 percent year-on-year.

Officials and experts have said, however, it could be increasingly challe

nging for the city to further reduce air pollution after the local government has taken all ma

jor measures that could achieve quick results, including the shifting of bulk coal to clean energy as a heating source.

China-US space cooperation would likely to prompt more

countries to join hands to develop space instead of choosing between China and the US, especially because after the end of the Cold War, international space cooperation has increased.

In fact, the International Space Station launched in 1998 has been operating thanks to the cooperat

ion between the US, Russia, Japan, some European countries, Canada and Brazil. The four maj

or satellite positioning systems — GPS (US), Beidou (China), GLONASS (Russia) and Galileo (Europe) — may also comple

ment each other to provide the most accurate positioning services. And once China and the US engage in a major sp

ace project, many other countries will join in and thus take space exploration to a new stage.

Sino-US space cooperation will stimulate the development of relevant industries and bring tangible benefits to the people. Space explora

tion will set in motion a series of space industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, resources, e

ergy and tourism. These may become new sources of growth for the world economy, promote industrial techn

ologies, and help address some global challenges such as climate change and energy depletion.

And the new products and services so generated will improve people’s lives and contribute to social progress.

The fourth opportunity is the Belt and Road Initiative, Liu

said. In 2018, trade in goods between China and countries within the re

gion covered by the BRI stood at $1.3 trillion, a 16.3 percent increase year-on-year. It w

as 3.7 percentage points higher than the growth rate of China’s overall external trade.

More than 13,000 China Railway Express trains have traveled along the BRI routes to date, l

inking cities in China with 49 cities in 15 European countries, including London, he added.

Rona Fairhead, the UK’s minister of state for trade and export promotion, said trade be

tween the two countries is worth more than 66 billion pounds ($86 billion) annually.

“UK exports to China continue to go from strength to strength,” she said. “In this n

ew year, I very much look forward to continuing our close level of engagement w

ith China. It is clear that there is still untapped demand for British goods and services in the Chinese market.”

China and Russia further developed their bilateral ties in 2018, with leaders at high levels visiting each o

ther multiple times. Hailing the rapid development of China-Russia economic and trade cooperation, the

bilateral trade volume was projected to exceed 100 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, while the two sides agreed to work to

gether on international issues, safeguarding free trade and multilateralism.

“China and Russia regard each other as comprehensive strategic partners. T

hanks to the high-level mutual trust and strategic guidance of the two heads of st

ate, bilateral ties have always been as firm and stable as a rock or mountain,” said Wang.

“Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of di

plomatic relations between China and Russia. China-Russia relations will sure

ly, based on current high-level development, make further progress in 2019,” Wang added.

There are a variety of meaty fillings that can be stuffed into

dumplings, the most common being pork along with a choice of vegetables. For the vegetarians am

ong us, it’s common to add egg or tofu to an array of tasty, crunchy fillings such as carrot, chives or cabbage.

“We usually put a coin in one of the dumplings, legend has it whoever gets that will bec

ome lucky and wealthy in the coming year,” explains Wu as she expertly wraps a coin into one o

f the fat little dumplings. Although making dumplings may look easy, there’s a def

inite trick to it, as Wu notes, “You need to pinch the side of the dumpling to wrap up the fillings to make it chewy, and th

en you squeeze it into a shape of an ancient Chinese coin to convey a feeling of jubilance.”

As Wu shows me, traditionally, dumplings are made to look like gold in

gots, which were used as currency in ancient China. Dumplings are therefore me

ant to signify wealth, and it’s said that the more you eat over the Spring Festival, the richer you will become in the coming year.
