From chips to its self-developed operating system, Huawe

wei has long been preparing for independent research and development in core technologies. It has the ab

ility to adjust to changes in the global market,” said Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Information Consumption Alliance.

Huawei has also made preparations with core chipsets. Existing st

ocks are thought to provide the company with a buffer of six months to a year, he said.

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a

great extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of eco

nomics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objecti

ves-though many of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the

US hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

During Spring Festival, the proportion of small-town yo

ouths who traveled rose by 101 percent year-on-year, compared with 50 per

cent among peers in bigger cities, according to major online travel agency Ctrip.

Ruan Tianying, deputy general manager of Western-style food chain Houcaller, said t

hat with fastgrowing urbanization in China, lower-tier cities definitely offer great potential.

Houcaller, founded in Xiamen, Fujian province, in 1993, plans to operate about 400 store

s in 100 Chinese cities, with more than two-thirds of them located in lower-tier centers by the end of this year.

Ruan said consumption per capita at Houcaller outlets is about

60 yuan, and about 80 percent of its more than 30 million customers a year are age 36 or younger.

“Opening a restaurant involves different factors, so we cannot reach lower-tier cities as quick

ly as fast-moving consumer goods do,” he said, adding that in these cities, the market still needs to be educa

ted about eating Western-style food, which involves a different dining etiquette from Chinese food.

Lofty goal draws elite satellite students to China

Socheat Chea, a Cambodian student with big dreams, wouldn’t attract much attention if he

walked down a street in his country since he doesn’t talk a lot and is a bit shy around strangers.

His classmate, Edgar Moreno Pena, who is from Venezuela, is more adept at socializing. He has

a vocabulary of more than 200 Chinese words, tells shopkeepers on Beijing streets pia

nyidian (give me a bigger discount) and uses Chinese-language food-delivery apps on his mobile phone.

“I often do shopping at Taobao and JD,” he said, referring to China’s two most popular online shopping websites.

Although the two foreign students have few similarities in their perso

nal backgrounds, they share a common goal at the Shenzhou Institute in northern Be

ijing: They are trying to learn from Chinese teachers how to design, build, operate and maintain satellites.
