of information about the cultural relics it preserves has been provided on its app, and multiple dig

hina to punish makers, sellers of fake products ‘until bankrup

EIJING – China will substantially increase the cost for breaking the law in the crackdown on intellectual property right infringe

ments and counterfeits, an official with the national market regulator said Monday.

“We will make the manufacturers and sellers of fakes products pay the

price until bankruptcy,” Zhang Mao, head of the State Administration for Market Reg

ulation, told a press conference on the sidelines of the annual legislative session.

They will also be exposed to the public and “have no place to hide under the sunshine,” Zhang said.

Through the efforts, the administration aims to gradually red

uce the number of fake products and ease the concerns of the people, Zhang added.

The first such case of an HIV patient being cleared of the

 virus after a bone marrow transplant happened a decade ago to Timothy

Brown, known as the “Berlin patient”, who is still free of the virus.

“The breakthrough suggests the first case was not a one-off and could pave the way

for future treatments,” Nature said in a release on its website.

Gupta described his patient as “functionally cured” and “in remission”.

But he cautioned, “It’s too early to say he’s cured,” according to a Reuters report.

The procedure is expensive, complex and risky, and will not be a common method

to cure all patients with HIV, the report said.

The number of people living with HIV in the world is estimated at 37 million,

according to the Joint United Nations Progr

amme on HIV/AIDS. In China, the number of people living with HIV was

estimated at 1.25 million as of the end of las

t year, and the number of new cases is

around 80,000 a year, according to the National Health Commission.

Although it is generally thought that HIV/AIDS cannot be cured, many patient

s with the virus can live a mostly normal

life with anti-viral treatment that keeps the virus at a low level.

Meanwhile, China’s long-running trade war with the US has

  forced Beijing to look for alternative trading partners. As result, China has started to rebuild ties wi

th rival rising power India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Last year Modi made two visits to China.

  This week, China’s Foreign Ministry called for both Pakistan and India to “maintain self-restraint and focus on regional peace and stability.”

  In an urgent late night call on Wednesday, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah M

ehmood Qureshi asked Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to play “a constructive role in easing the current tensions.”

  During the call, China‘s Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed that “the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countr

ies should be respected, and China does not want to see the acts that violate the norms of international relations.”

  Steve Tsang, director of the China Institute at SOAS University of London, said th

ere was no benefit to China on any front if tensions between India and Pakistan spiraled.

  ”China cannot afford to be seen as failing Pakistan, but at the

same time I don’t think the Chinese really want to pick a fight with the Indians over this,” he said.

Converting using the average rate in the year is relativ

ely more accurate, said Sun Bushu, deputy director of the South China City Research Association.

However, per capita GDP in Hong Kong in 2018 was HK$381,870, equal to around 322,000 yuan according to the an

nual average exchange rate, and remains above Shenzhen’s 200,000 yuan.

Furthermore, he estimated that Guangzhou would also catch up with Hong Kong soon.

Hong Kong’s Financial Secretary Paul Chan Mo-po said in his budget speech that the local ec

onomy was expanding with a stronger growth momentum during the first half of 2018, but had slo

wed down in the second half due to brewing trade tensions and other unfavorable conditions.

For the fourth quarter, the growth rate was a mere 1.3 percent, making it the slowest pace since the first quarter of 2016.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed the hope on Febru

that China should be involved in international disarmament efforts. “We would of course be glad if such talks were held not j

ust between the United States, Europe and Russia but also with China,” said Merkel at the 55th Munich Security Conference.

Her remarks were clearly directed against Washington and Moscow’s withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

Yang Jiechi, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee,

who was also present at the conference, reiterated that “we [China] are opposed to the multilateralization of INF.”

The INF treaty concerns Europe and Germany’s interests. The US took the lead in abandoning INF, resulting in the collapse of the arms control system.

It is understandable that Berlin is anxious, but Merkel’s hasty call for Beijing is rath

er inappropriate. Her words disrespect China’s interests and wishes, and objectively encourage Washington to quit irresponsibly.

Five more lunar locations get Chinese nameon Jan

ive more geographical entities on the moon have been given Chinese names, based on discoveri

es from China’s latest Chang’e 4 mission, according to a news conference on Friday.

The China National Space Administration, Chinese Academy of Sciences and International Astronomical Union held a j

oint news conference Friday to announce the five names approved by the IAU on Feb 4.

The landing site of the Chang’e 4 probe is named Statio Tianhe, and three annular pits around the landing site are called Zhin

yu, Hegu and Tianjin. The central peak in the Von Karman Crater is referred to as Mons Tai.

The five places are clearly shown on high-resolution images based on data from the Chang’e 2 and Chang’e 4 missions.

China’s Chang’e 4 probe, launched on Dec 8, landed on the Von Kar

man Crater in the South Pole-Aitken Basin on the far side of the moon on Jan 3.

Tianhe, another name for the galaxy in ancient China, implies that th

e Chang’e 4 probe served as a pioneer in the history of human lunar exploration.

That the festival triggers such huge human movements eac

ch year is linked to how rapid urbanization has driven and been driven by China’s historically

high annual economic growth rates over the past four decades of reform and opening-up.

With the benefits of migration increasingly visible, and the main obstacles to rural-to-urban migration removed (including through massively ex

panded transport infrastructures), the number of internal migrants has increased by 35 times between 1982 and 2018.

However, China’s household registration system complicates the migration process. For m

any reasons, a major unintended effect of migration has been the creation of large populations of left-beh

ind family members-elderly parents, spouses and children, each of these subsets totaling tens of millions.

Beyond the gift-sharing and merrymaking of family reunions, Spring Festival pr

ovides opportunities for improving care arrangements for left-behind parents, spouses and children.

This social value of the festival is important since we know that despite on

going improvements, left-behind children and elderly people have poorer ac

cess to quality education, health and social protection services, compared with their peers in the big towns and cities.
