na photovoltaic modules export jumps 77% in nels in Dingh

Thanks to huge demand in the emerging markets, China’s export of photovoltaic modules jumped 77.63 percent to 16.78 GW in

the first quarter, with exports value rising 31.89 percent to $4.39 billion, news portal Jiemian reported.

The report, citing newly released Import and Export Analysis Report of China’s Photovoltaic Prod

ucts in Q1 2019 by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Pr

ducts, said the cut in prices of China’s photovoltaic modules boosted purchase of overseas buyers.

According to locals like Ahmat, the Lop Nur people fished for food in the area famous for the

vast Lop Nur lake, where historically the Tarim River ended. The lake dried up not long after the water in the

river had gone. As such, many fishermen packed away their rods and instead pursued herding and farming.

“When I was a child, I never ate fish. Nor did I ever see my grandfather or father go fishing,” says Ahmat.

When the ‘black storms’ struck, I could see nothing, and the shee

p couldn’t find their way home,” he recalled of the sandstorms in the old days.

“Nothing could be seen when a black storm hit, and nothing was left after the sto

rm,” says Wang Jianben, 74, who lives on a farm some 100 km away from Ahmat’s village.

“Most of the crops would be blown away, and the farmers had to replant the crops three to four times in a single spring.”

Faced with deep-rooted structural weakness, several large

eral large developing countries are struggling to recover from recessions or remain trapped on a low growth path.

The report highlights that per capita income growth in several parts of Africa, western Asia, L

atin America and the Caribbean is expected to remain very weak in the outlook period. That poses ad

ditional challenges for the Sustainable Development Goals, including the goal to universally eradicate poverty by 2030.

The report further notes that while poverty remains predominantly

rural, further progress on poverty-reduction also hinges on the effective management of o

ngoing urbanization. That is particularly relevant for Africa and South Asia, the two regions with the highest num

ber of people in poverty, which are expected to experience the most rapid pace of urbanization in the next two decades.

he Ya’an-Nyingchi section is believed to be one of the

 world’s most challenging railway projects to build, as it will traverse the southeast

portion of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, which has intricate and difficult geological conditions.

Previous reports said that 80 percent of the Sichuan-Tibet Railway will

consist of tunnels and bridges, and the cumulative ascent of the line will exceed 16,000 me

ters, which is equivalent to double the height of Qomolangma, the world’s highest mountain also known as Mount Everest.

When the line is completed, the travel time by rail between Chengdu and Lhasa will shorten f

rom 48 hours to about 13 hours.hina’s national railway operator has on Wednesday added a new function to h

weather, and the provincial government recently announ

nced that when conditions are right, artificial means will be used to make rain.

Chen Lijuan, the chief weather forecaster of the National Climate Center, sai

d rain is on the way to the northeast and will arrive next week. That should alleviate the

drought, but dry conditions will continue to make things worse in Yunnan, she said.

Zhou Wenyi, a 26-year-old from Kunming, Yunnan province, said that the weather is very strange this year.

“The climate of Yunnan is kind of like the southeastern Asian countr

ies, where April and May are the two hottest periods before the rainy season arrives. The hig

hest temperature in Yunnan’s summer period usually is around 21 to 22 C,” she said.

Last year, a few days before the incident, Zhou sent a mes

ssage to the students who attended the school reunion, saying,

“Do you remember the gathering two years ago? I’ll get even with him (Xie Diao)!”

Previous reports said Zhou confessed to police after the incident that w

hat Xie had said in the gathering made him feel unpleasant in the past two years.

On Dec 12, 2018, Zhou went to Beijing for a trip. Two days later in the evening, Xie Diao met Zh

ou at a restaurant outside the school. He even took a photo for Zhou and sent it to their high school Wechat group.

The surveillance footage from the restaurant recorded everything that hap

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

He cautioned that the government should have a clear

outlook on the long-term and complex characteristics of all unfavor

able factors both at home and abroad, and should prepare for all possible difficulties.

The most important thing for China is to focus on its own issues, X

i said, adding that joint efforts are needed to push forward reform and development.

Xi required governments in the central region to promote the high-quality development o

f the manufacturing sector and speed up the application of digital, internet and intelligent technologies in all areas.

More efforts are needed to promote independent innovation capabilities in key are

employment, especially for college students, is of great

importance for economic development and social stability.

To better secure the employment of

graduates, government at all levels issued policies to redu

ce discriminatory practices these new

graduates may encounter when hunting for a job.

For example, the Ministry of Human

Resource and Social Security said in February that employees are not allowed to def

ine positions based on gender or to ask for a female job-seekers’ marital status, to protect women’ rights in the job market.

Also, the Ministry of Education required colleges to reinforce campus recruitment activ

ities, prohibiting discriminatory information concerning gender, nationality and college levels.

According to the ministry, the number of college graduates is projected to reach a record high of 8.34 million this year, up by 140,000 from 2018.

A hearing on the proposed tariffs on Chinese imports will

 take place on June 17, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative.

Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for Internation

al Economics in Washington, said the FDRA letter will add to the pressure on Trump to reach a deal with China.

“It will not be totally ignored,” Hufbauer said.

Over the past few weeks, business groups have voiced their concern that the escalating tariffs on Chinese imports risked knocking consumers off their feet.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association, for example, said in a st

atement: “The administration’s decision to announce a tax on every product coming from China pu

ts America’s entire economy at risk. Americans’ entire shopping cart will get more expensive,” it said.
