uary and it only took four months to reach an official agreement with the CSGKC administrative committee.
Biopharmaceuticals company InnoCare entered the CSGKC last year. Its founder and CEO, Cui Jis上海千花坊女神会所
ong, said the company will set up a production base in the CSGKC. Their first independent patented
上海千花坊new drug will hit the market by 2020 with an estimated sales value of 10 billion yuan.
Meanwhile, a General Electric bio-campus and an oncother
apy medicine manufacturing center of the international pharma company BeiGene wi上海千花坊女神会所
ll finish construction in the CSGKC this year. It will lead a new stage of development for the knowledge city.
Liu Jian, senior vice-president of BeiGene, said that the production center started construction in 2017. It is exp
上海千花坊女神会所ected to begin operating in the third quarter of 2019, with a production capacity of 24,000 liters of biological agent.
The CSGKC is also designated as a State-level pilot zone for the comprehensive reform of IP use and protection by the Sta上海千花坊
te Council. It has attracted the Patent Examination Cooperation Center of the National Intellectual Property Ad
ministration in Guangdong to settle in CSGKC. They are an important partner to build a whole IP chain in the area.上海千花坊女神会所
The center assesses patent invention applications, searches international patents and international preliminary applic
ations under the Patent Cooperation Treaty. It has processed 706,000 patent filings to date.上海千花坊
The center can handle more than 150,000 filings every year, covering machi

Liu Bingjiang, head of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment’s air quality management department, said at the same fo上海千花坊品茶微信
rum that it is unfair for companies with high operational costs on environmental protection to compete und
上海千花坊er the same market conditions against those investing little into environmental protection.
The authorities will bring in industrial associations to tighten emissions assess
ment on steel producers when granting exemptions from production restrictions, he said.上海千花坊
Those with poor environmental protection records or that scheme to cheat the assessment will be severely punished, he said.
上海千花坊品茶微信Currently, China enforces steel production restrictions in key areas on days forecast to have heavy air pollution, and
roducers with ultra-low carbon emissions are allowed to have lower or no production cuts.
More than 60 steel producers in key areas, with a total crude steel capacity of 260 million上海千花坊
tons, have upgraded to meet ultra-low carbon emission standards, according to Liu.
上海千花坊品茶微信China expects 60 percent (340 million tons) of existing crude steel capacity in key areas
to be made with ultra-low carbon emissions by 2020, according to a ministry guideline released this year.
Li Xinchuang, president of the China Metallurgical Industry Planni
g and Research Institute, said that to achieve low-carbon emissions involves upgrades in上海千花坊
the whole process of steel production, and more attention should be paid to procedures such as raw materials tra
上海千花坊品茶微信nsportation and storage, which often generate emissions that are difficult to contain.

Yantai, a coastal city in East China’s Shandong province, which is
a popular tourist destination, is trying to regain its past glory as a center for Peking Opera.上海千花坊女神会所
Peking Opera, or jingju, is a traditional Chinese art form, which has a history of more tha
n 200 years. In 2010 UNESCO declared Peking Opera an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
上海千花坊To promote the art form, the local government in Yantai is to launch its first Peking Op
era summer camp from July 19 to 24, hoping to attract young students from around the country.
The summer camp, which is being supported by Jingju Theatre Company of Beijing will have veteran Peking Opera artists c上海千花坊女神会所
oach young students on painting the facial masks for Peking Opera, acting and giving live performances.
The origins of Peking Opera go back to 1790, when four famous Anhui Opera troupes came to Beijing as part of the celeb
上海千花坊rations for the 80th birthday of Emperor Qianlong (1711-99) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), and stayed on.
Then, in 1828, some famous Hubei Opera troupes came to Beijin上海千花坊女神会所
g. And then the artists from the Hubei and Anhui troupes often performed jointly.
Later, around 1840, Peking Opera began to formally take shape, growing even faster d
uring the reign of the Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908), who was a Chinese opera lover.
After that, Peking Opera, which is known for combining various art for
ms, like singing, dancing, acrobatics, and for elaborate costumes and movements, grew f
rom strength to strength. Peking Opera troupes were born in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.

which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”上海千花坊
Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.
上海千花坊”We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic and so
cietal trends, such as the emerging of the middle class, water scarcity issues and the aging population, an
d our business is in line with the government’s commitment toward a more healthy and beautiful China. The m上海千花坊品茶微信
arket is huge and we are a good fit and well-placed to grasp the opportunities here,” said Wyant.
According to her, the company has to focus to succeed in China.
“It’s a massive country. It’s rife with opportunities, and it’s got a very aggressive and vibrant customer set, but also a co上海千花坊
mpetitive set. That’s why we say we really focus on three big opportunity areas where we think we bring ad
上海千花坊vantages that match China’s economic opportunities and its vision for society,” she added.
The first is food service, a market that is estimated to exceed 4 trillion y
uan, making it the second largest in the world. The annual revenue of the food service an上海千花坊品茶微信
d hospitality market has grown at double digits, providing a big opportunity for Ecolab.
上海千花坊And the second is around water management. This is where Ecolab brings things like the total water management capability.
“In China, we’re looking at the end use of water. And we’re leveraging out digital technologies like our 3D TRASARTM platf
orm, where we bring digitally connected devices into industrial cooling, boiler environments, and can reduce wa上海千花坊品茶微信
ter usage by up to 30 percent. Besides, we’re also introducing international standards on water management into the C
hina market, in a bid to upgrade the framework and bring corporate water management to the next level,” said Wyant.上海千花坊品茶微信
Ecolab and its client Nestlé are frontrunners on this, from setting
up a systematic water management approach for protecting the Taihu basin to ac
hieving the AWS (Alliance for Water Stewardship) standard certification in 15 drinking water factories.
The last focused area, according to Wyant, is healthcare. The comp
any is in talks with some of the leading hospitals on better managing infectious diseases.
“China is the best place to learn how to be agile, how to be fast, how to be m
arket focused, so we think we bring global know-how, global innovation with the w
illingness to invest in local Chinese capabilities and stay relevant,” said Wyant.
tory trash sorti上海千花坊ng implementation in Shanghai, saying it will serve as an example for the capital’s upcoming revised regulation.
Chang Jiwen, deputy director of the Institute for Resources and En上海千花坊女神会所
vironment at Development Research Center of the State Council, said Shanghai’s waste so
rting will give reference to Beijing as the public’s awareness has been greatly enhanced due to the implementation.
“Some citizens in Shanghai formed the habit of delivering the上海千花坊
garbage to recycling stations every day, since the trash bins had been removed,” he said. “Be
上海千花坊女神会所ijing can follow Shanghai’s suit on mandatory household garbage sorting the same way.”
Jiang Jianguo, a professor at Tsinghua University’s School of Environm
ent, said there are still lots of challenges if Beijing plans to classify residential garbage.
“Most of the residential garbage didn’t have recycling value, but that trash makes up most of the public’s garbage,” h上海千花坊
e said. “How to restrict those through legislation remains a question to consider in the future.”
Beijing has carried out trash sorting since early 1998, when the Dachengxiang commu
nity in Xicheng district became the first neighborhood to classify garbage. At the end of 2011, the city p上海千花坊女神会所
ublished China’s first domestic waste management regulation, which took effect on March 1, 2012.
However, the implementation of trash sorting in Beijing hasn’t gone well in the past decade, since mere encouragement is not en上海千花坊女神会所
ough for citizens to change their habits, said Hao Zhilan, director of the urban construction and environmental p
rotection committee, at the Beijing’s People Congress meeting at the end of May.
The previous regulations didn’t give specific fines for househ
olds, companies or institutions that fail to sort their garbage properly.
Yuan Yiyu, a 20-year-old sophomore at the University of International Business and Econom
ics in Beijing, said she started to learn garbage classification this month since the implementation of t
rash sorting in Shanghai largely drove her passion to learn waste sorting at college.
“I hope to use the garbage classification knowledge more in the future to help better protect our city’s environment,” she said.

上海千花坊女神会所She cited the global success of short video-sharing app TikTok, also known as Douyin in
China, and the apps developed by China’s Palace Museum, as examples of China’s innovative ability.
TikTok has 75 language versions and is liked by users from over 150 countries and regions, while the 11上海千花坊
apps developed by the Palace Museum have been downloaded by over 5 million users across the world.
“In the future, Apple and Chinese developers will enhance their coo
上海千花坊女神会所peration in the education and technology sectors, and hopefully Apple would contribute more to China’s app economy,” she said.
Before coming to Shanghai, Ge led the US company’s wireless technologies software engineering teams for nine ye
ars. Looking back, she admitted it is challenging to transition from a technical management job to run business in China.上海千花坊
“But I am very grateful to have the opportunity to return to China from the US. We hav

“We want to offer better localized services. That is what I have been constantly pushing forward and what I like most,” Ge said.
上海千花坊女神会所She also hailed the smooth progress of the construction of Apple’s first China data center in Guiyang,
Guizhou province, adding that the company had received tremendous support from the local government.

billion yuan, or 25 percent, of the insurer’s 320 billion yuan in total premiums.上海千花坊品茶微信
As Kong understands, there are plenty of opportunities for insurance companies in the integr
ated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, with transportation as a top priority.上海千花坊
“Insurance capital can help the government to boost domestic consumption. A com
prehensive transportation network connecting railway, subway, ports and even airports ha
上海千花坊品茶微信s been a longstanding goal of many cities in this area. This is where insurers can play a big role,” he said.
Elderly care is another sector where insurance companies can find big opportunities, said Ko
ng. In early June, CPIC opened an elderly care community in Hangzhou, and is about to launch a new one in Nanjing.
“The idea is to let the senior citizens in Shanghai enjoy quality elderly
care services in other parts of the Yangtze River Delta region. More room in Sha上海千花坊品茶微信
nghai can thus be given to ambitious young entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses,” he said.
The integration of risk prevention schemes for peasants in the Ya
ngtze River Delta region is one more area where insurers can focus on, said Kong.上海千花坊品茶微信
Peasants’ income can be largely increased via products such
as cost insurance, yield insurance, income insurance or one-stop insurance service.
上海千花坊品茶微信He Haifeng, director of the Institute of Financial Policy, which is a part of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the
integrated development of the delta region presents many latent challenges. So, more efforts should be made to ref
orm finance and tax areas, to reduce fees in various fields, and improve the overall business environment.
