The Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations, whic

will be held later this month following the proposal of President Xi Jinping, demonstrates China’s deep thinking and resp

onsibility for promoting the development of civilization in Asia and the world. The conference will have great and

far-reaching significance to the construction of a community of shared future for mankind.

The history of humanity is one of the coexistence and joint development of multiple civilizations. In his article on excha

nges among civilizations and mutual learning, published by the Qiushi journal on May 1, Xi wrote that “civiliz

ation becomes colorful because of exchanges, and abundant because of mutual learning”. He urged nations to “seek wisd

om, absorb nutrition from different civilizations, provide the people with spiritual support and comfort for thei

r soul, and join hands to resolve common challenges of various kinds confronting human beings”.

McGuinness identified a great number of opportuni

ties brought by the BRI, which by some estimates could be worth 1.8 billion pounds ($2.33 billion) annually to the British economy.

As a financial hub for international infrastructure investmen

t, British firms and international companies based in the UK stand ready to provide many of the ser

vices required along the Belt and Road, especially as it becomes more of a shared venture, she said.

They can also provide private financing required by the project and support thro

ugh green finance, consultancy, rule of law and foreign exchange, McGuinness added.

Seventy years after the founding of the People’s Republic of China, ties between China and UK h

ave gone from strength to strength, with bilateral trade now worth nearly 70 billion pounds, McGuinness said.

“I look forward to celebrating this long, fruitful relationship with our Chinese counterp

arts, and to marking the next chapter of our partnership in the Belt and Road,” she added.

Taylor said the US will ultimately “pay the price for

this”, in the form of an incomplete and inaccurate understanding of China by barring scholars wh

o have great familiarity with US politics and policymaking and have the ear of Chinese officials.

Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carn

egie Endowment for International Peace, said it appears that the scholars who best unders

tand the US and communicate well with China’s leaders are being denied visas or threatened with denial.

“I don’t see how this is in America’s interest,” Paal said.

Some US media have mentioned that China also denies visas to

US academics, but Taylor and Paal said that has not been

their experience when applying for Chinese visas to visit China for academic exchanges.

In a news conference on Thursday, when asked if China rejected a visa application fr

om an adviser to US President Donald Trump, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang

said Chinese embassies and consulates overseas always handle visa applications according to law.

China welcomes cultural exchanges between China and the US an

d will actively promote mutual understanding between the two countries, Lu said.

is a shoebox of a shop tucked away in a small alley in downtown Beijing. And those who do find it will qui

ckly be disabused of the quaint notion that old-style phonographic recordings have gone the way of the dinosaur.

nstead the 100-square-meter shop prides itself on being an independent distributor of vinyl records and other musical recordings.

In the basement Yang greets his fans, who have already bought the new album, either as vinyls or cassettes.

“I am impressed by the cover design of the new album,” says a rou

nd-faced young man with black-framed glasses. “It’s usually the first reason for me to buy an album.”

The experimental cover design of P.K 14’s latest album is a depart

ure from its previous use of paintings or photographs and was completed b

y the band’s drummer, Jonathan Leijonhufvud, along with two other designers and YVMIN Studio, a Beijing outfit that handled the 3D vi

sual aspects. Playing with the illusion and contrast of true and false, the cover is a 3D rendering layered on top of an im

age. The two overlap, adding dynamism to the experiment, reflecting the way the band’s 11 new songs are structured.

He said that based on the research of national legislator

China produces more than 80 million tons of hazardous waste per year, instead of the official figure of 40 million tons.

Therefore, the total capacity for hazardous waste treatment in the country is insufficient, according to Wang.

The utilization rate of the capacity for hazardous waste dispo

sal also remains low. According to data that the Ministry of Ecology a

nd Environment provided to the NPC Standing Committee in 2017, only about 25 percent of China’s capacity was

in full operation and data from other sources also shows low utilization rates, Wang said.

“Some enterprises have failed to build sound systems for hazardous waste manageme

nt as required, or failed to implement them,” Wang said, adding that some companies had turned a blind eye to loo

pholes in the production process that could result in hazardous waste leakage.

In one case, Baoxun Precision Screws Co Ltd in Zhejiang province was found to have dumped about 1,072 tons of hazardou

s sludge into the Yangtze River in Anhui and Jiangsu provinces from July 2016 to May 2017.
