The region’s measures for mountaineering safety ma

anagement include controlling the number of climbers, limiting the climbing seas

on, setting high requirements and maintaining the high-traffic climbing routes.

“Seasonally, since 2017, we have only allowed climbers on Mount Q

omolangma in spring due to favorable weather conditions of the northern slope,” Trinley said.

“Controlling the number of climbers is another key measure to ensure both mountaineering safety and ecological protection,” he said.

In 2019, the north face routes had a total of 362 people, including 142 foreign climbers from

33 countries, 12 domestic climbers and 208 Nepali Sherpa mountaineering guides, the association said.

Within the last few years, the overall number of climbers has averaged 290, the association said.

President’s Russia visit eyes global stabilityernational Coo

President Xi Jinping’s upcoming visit to Russia reflects close cooperation between China and Russia, which is impo

rtant to maintain the stability of the international community amid rising uncertainties, analysts said.

Xi will make a state visit to Russia from June 5 to 7 and attend the 23rd St. Petersburg Inter

national Economic Forum, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang announced on Wednesday.

The trip is part of the annual exchange of visits between the two countries’

heads of state, after Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the Second Belt and Road For

um for International Cooperation in Beijing in April and had talks with Xi on the sidelines.

The visit will further display the strength of bilateral ties, which are developing “very good” momentum both politically and

economically, said Ruan Zongze, vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies.

US President Donald Trump, in the name of “national sec

urity”, signed an executive order on May 15 that led the US Department of Commerce to put Huawei and its affilia

tes on an Entity List, which would restrict the sale or transfer of US technologies to the company.

Craig Allen, president of the council, said many of its members are suppliers to Huaw

ei, and all of them have been impacted by the Department of Commerce’s move.

Founded in 1973, the council represents around 200 US companie

s doing business with China, including Apple and Microsoft. It also includes chipmakers Inte

l and Qualcomm, which have said they would stop offering supplies to Huawei until further notice.

The members will follow US law, but there is a cost associated with that, Allen told China Daily.

ill come out soon while others saying it’s still difficult to reach an agreement, from time to time.

China’s position has been consistent, Lu said. “The trade frictions should be resolved through friendly con

sultations and negotiations, which must be based on mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit,” he added.

The ministry made the remarks after the United States gover

nment late last week ordered its tech companies to cut ties with China’s

Huawei and put a number of Chinese comp

anies on an export blacklist , which makes it almost impossible for listed companies to purchase US-made goods.

Gao Feng, ministry spokesman, said China will

provide consumers in various countries with quality, reliable and diverse products.

The Chinese government is confident it will protect the legitimate

rights and interests of Chinese companies, he said Thursday at a news conference.

The misuse of the state power by the US to suppress Chinese companies not only seriously undermines the commercial cooper

ation between companies on both sides, but poses a serious threat to the safety of the global industrial chain, he said.

Another major problem is that the return on equity in the

infrastructure sector is a mere 3 percent while that in the US capital market is about 12 percent. So how can the US attract more private capital to the infr

astructure sector without guaranteeing a return on equity equal to that in the capital market?

US suffering from a financial Dutch disease

The US’ monetary hegemony is itself a big impediment to the reindustria

lization process, which could be viewed as a sort of financial Dutch disease-the apparent causal

relationship between the increase in the economic development of a specific sector and a decline in other sectors. The mor

e heated the US stock market gets, the more serious the Dutch disease will become. And, ironically, the US leader is k

een on strengthening the stock market to showcase his political and economic track record.

Besides, the US administration cannot launch large-scale infrastructure construction projects, significantly redu

ce the trade deficit with China and deny Chinese investors access to its market all at the same time.

Huawei said in a statement on Thursday that restricting t

 company from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger.

“Instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior, yet more expensive alternatives, leav

ing it lagging behind in 5G deployment and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.”

The company said it is ready and willing to engage with the US government to come up with effective measures to ensure product security.

In response to the ban on Huawei buying parts from US companies, the company said such a deci

sion will “do significant economic harm to the US companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of t

housands of US jobs and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist in the global supply chain”.

Wang Peng, deputy head of the China Center for Information Industry Development, said the new US moves will disrupt the whole global electronics in

ustry and hurt a string of US companies that supply chips and other components to Huawei.

Such a personal goal can be seen, to a certain extentas a

microcosm of the national aspirations of both of their countries to gain a place in the global space arena via the cooperation and assistance of China.

Chea and Moreno Pena are part of a training program hosted by the China Academy of Space Technology.

The idea is to train a small group of elite foreign students to become s

pace industry engineers capable of developing and manufacturing satellites on their o

wn, thus enabling their countries to build their respective space industries and explore space.

Eight people are taking part in the program, which began in March 2018-two Ve

nezuelans, two Pakistanis, one Cambodian, one Russian, one Belarusian and one Kazakh.

“I am the first-ever Cambodian studying spacecraft knowledge,” Chea told

China Daily recently at the Shenzhou Institute, which is run by the academy.
