The new airport, constructed to meet China’s surging air service demand and take the pr

上海419论坛With four runways, 268 parking bays and a vast terminal building covering 700,000

Didi Chuxing, China’s ride-hailing giant, plans to lower its minimum passenger age restricti上海419论坛女神会所

on for teens traveling without a supervising adult from 18 to 16, the company announced Wednesday.

The new adjustment comes months after Didi said in October that children under 18 were not上海419论坛

allowed to use the car-hailing service alone, which later generated heated discussion online.

Some people hold that for users aged between 16 to 18 who have left h上海419论坛

ome for work or study, the age regulation just shut them out of the service that gave

them no alternatives but to turn to illegal cab services, or black cars, the company said.上海419论坛女神会所

“It was never our intention to push some independent minors toward the more dangerou

s gray areas just because our policy requires all minors to take cars with their parents,” the company said.上海419论坛

According to an online poll initiated by Didi in February to seek public opinion on

whether minors can ride Didi alone, over half percent of the participants suppor上海419论坛女神会所

ted children below 18 years old being able to hail a ride without an adult accompanying them.

In another poll, the percentage of support group increased to 80% with the minimum age restriction was changed to 16.

上海419eneration pressurized water reactors that are being built without any time overruns.

Zheng Mingguang, president of Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Inst

itute Co Ltd, an affiliate of the State Power Investment Corp, said China has accumulated precious experiences and上海419女神会所

capabilities in nuclear power project design, construction, and operation over the past few decades.

By the end of June, China had 47 reactors in operation with a capacity of about 48.73 million kW, and the nuclear power

上海419plants produced about 160 billion kWh of electricity in the first half of 2019, up 23.09 percent year-on-year and acc

ounted for 4.75 percent of the total electricity generated in China, according to the China Nuclear Energy Association.

“We used to lag behind, but thanks to efforts of several generations of researchers, China is now among the few cou上海419女神会所

ntries in the world to have a comprehensive third-generation nuclear power industrial chain,” said Zheng, who is a

lso chief engineer of CAP1400, a third-generation nuclear reactor technology developed by the institute.

上海419China is among the best in the world’s nuclear power industry, with di

stinct competitive advantages to export nuclear power projects, he said.

CAP1400 utilizes proven technologies and takes advantage of superior design features to reduce costs and meet high上海419女神会所

safety requirements, he said, adding China is able to design and manufacture key equipment and materials.

Over 85 percent of components and devices of CAP1400, including key ones s

上海419uch as steam generators, pressure vessels, accumulators, and squib valves, can

be domestically manufactured, thanks to efforts and innovations from both State-owned and private Chinese com上海419女神会所

Given the current climate of cross-Straits relations, the Chinese mainla

上海楼凤nd suspended issuing individual travel permits for Taiwan on Thursday. What do

es the move suggest? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Yao Yuxin. Excerpts follow:

上海楼凤女神会所DPP should stop splittist activities

Taiwan witnessed rapid growth in tourist arrivals from the mai

nland in the eight years before Tsai Ing-wen became the island leader in 2016.

Individual travel to Taiwan was first permitted for residents of Beijin

上海楼凤女神会所g, Shanghai and Xiamen, Fujian province, in 2011 when cross-Straits relations were goo

d thanks partly to Ma Ying-jeou being the Taiwan leader. The arrangement was extended to 47 mainland cities over the fol

上海楼凤lowing three years. As a result, mainland tourist arrivals in Taiwan peaked at more than 4 million in 2015.

But tourist arrivals began dropping after Tsai took office, because she and her Democratic Progressive Party refused to rec

ognize the 1992 Consensus that there is only one China, which soured cross-Straits relations.上海楼凤女神会所

Mainland visitors-a large number of whom are individual travelers-account for ab

out a quarter of Taiwan’s total tourist arrivals, so the new curbs could rattle the island’s tourism industry and上海楼凤

hurt the broader economy. If the situation continues to worsen, the system for mai

上海楼凤nland tourists to apply for group travel to the island might also be affected in the foreseeable future.

But ignoring the mainland’s huge contribution to the island’s tou

rism sector prosperity and economic growth, Tsai and the DPP have more brazenly p上海楼凤女神会所

ushed forward their “Taiwan independence” agenda without thinking that, by fur

上海楼凤ther straining cross-Straits relations, they are compromising the well-being of Taiwan compatriots.

Besides, without any evidence to prove their outrageous claim, Tsai

and her fellow DPP leaders accused the mainland of sending spies and interferi上海楼凤女神会所

ng in the local elections last year, which put the safety of mainland individual travelers at risk.

上海千花坊”So far, 98 percent of China’s administrative villages have been covered by the 4G networ

According to him, more efforts will be made to deepen the coverag

e of the network. Cyberspace should be considered as a community of shared fu

ture for all humankind. Governments should scale up policy support to encourage telecom operators in actively e上海千花坊

nhancing the joint construction and coverage of broadband networks in rural, remote, difficult and unserved areas.

Starting from the end of 2015, the central government and telecom carriers including China Telecom, China Mobile an上海千花坊女神会所

xpand optical networks to 130,000 administrative villages, including 43,000 poor villages.

上海千花坊女神会所”We also need to ramp up efforts to accelerate the pace of technologic

上海419论坛Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and it concerns China’s sovereignty, n

ational security and territorial integrity. The problems in Xinjiang are not ethnic or relig

上海419论坛品茶微信ious issues, but issues of terrorism and violent crimes. The Chinese government has taken measures

according to the law to respond to these challenges to ensure social stability and the fundamental interests of local people.

The measures China has taken in Xinjiang are to not only fight ag上海419论坛

上海419论坛品茶微信ainwashed by harmful ideology that is often packaged in religion and nationalism.

These measures have reversed Xinjiang’s security situation within a few ye

Xinjiang was once at a crossroad where it threatened to become another hotbed and上海419论坛品茶微信

exporter of terrorism. China has turned it to a region of stability and prosperity.

Beijing has invited foreign envoys, ambassadors, international organization officials and repo

cational education training centers, for themselves have said that it is different from the Western media’s reports.

The duplicity and hypocrisy of some Western countries are evident in their one-sided and baseless criticism of the a

nti-radicalism measures employed in Xinjiang. It seems only after Beijing gives a green light to the spre
