The construction of a smart industry park started in Sino-Singapore Guangzh
ou Knowledge City (SSGKC) on Thursday. The knowledge city was elevated to a national-level project last month.上海千花坊
The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City is getting bolde
r in its reforms and experimentation, following an official upgrade centering on its ambit
上海千花坊品茶微信ions to be a world-class knowledge city, an outstanding source of innovation in the region and a global talent magnet.
According to a framework agreement signed by the Chinese and Singaporean governm
ents on Monday, the iconic Sino-Singaporean collaboration project based in Guangzhou, capital of South China’s Gu上海千花坊
angdong province, was officially elevated to the status of a State-level bilateral project.
上海千花坊品茶微信Involving a total investment of 1.4 billion yuan ($203.34 million) and scheduled to be co
mpleted in 2020, the China-Singapore International Smart Industry Park will focus
on the development of technology related to the internet of things, big data and cloud ecology.上海千花坊
It is designed to empower companies developing applications in the smart home, transport, office, healthcare and city ind
上海千花坊ustries, according to the administration of Huangpu district, Guangzhou, where the project is located.
Infrastructure projects including eight railways, five expressways and seven urban express
ways are under construction and a new metro line is scheduled for operation in late September.上海千花坊
An intercity light rail is also slated to be put into service next year. By then, travel time from th
e CSGKC to other cities in the Bay Area is expected to be reduced to within an hour.
上海千花坊品茶微信In addition, a high-speed rail station and convenient traffic routes
to the airport, railway stations and the port of Guangzhou are planned.
The park will accommodate innovation incubators, offices, commerc上海千花坊
ial facilities and residential apartments, with green-building technologies to be used widely.
上海千花坊品茶微信The park will also include a Siemens green city digitalization center and a Sino-Singapore research institute.
Covering an area of 21.2 square kilometers, SSGKC has attr
acted 1,382 companies with a total registered capital of 129.4 billion yuan.上海千花坊品茶微信
The knowledge city is the only national-level pilot zone for intellectual property use and protection reform.

US District Court Judge James Shadid read instructions to the jury on Wednesd
上海后花园ay morning after the prosecution and defense made their closing arguments.
“The law leaves this decision exclusively to you, the jury,” Shadid said. “Whichever sentence you choose, death or life im上海后花园
prisonment without the possibility of release, the court is required to impose that sentence.”
上海后花园品茶微信Zhang’s mother, father, boyfriend and brother were in the main courtroom Wednesday m

Christensen’s defense lawyers admitted to the court that in June 2017, he
raped Zhang and beat her to death with a bat. Christensen hasn’t said what he did with the bod上海后花园品茶微信
y. Investigators have not been able to find Zhang’s body, despite an intensive search.
In his closing argument, federal prosecutor James Nels上海后花园

He acknowledged the grief of Christensen’s family would have if he were sen上海后花园品茶微信

He described the impact on Zhang’s family, as they placed great hope in her.

nt history, the relocation of some manufacturing industries from
上海龙凤1314China to overseas destinations is inevitable given the extent of China’s development. On the other h
and, this phenomenon does not mean China will lose its manufacturing and economic power.上海龙凤1314品茶微信
During the previous five industrial migrations, the economic development of the leading countries that hosted such industries didn’t stop after
some of the traditional sectors relocated to other countries. Instead, they soon saw the rise of new industries, high-end m上海龙凤1314
anufacturing and the service sector－and they are still developed economies. For example, the US is still the world’s larg
上海龙凤1314品茶微信est economy even 60 years after the third industrial migration, while Japan, Germany and Britain are ranked among the
top seven economies in terms of size and quality even decades after the industrial migration.上海龙凤1314
Relocation speed and scope not alarming
As a country with the world’s largest population, the third-largest territory, and the longest continuous上海龙凤1314
economic growth curve, China’s case will be the same even after the relocation of some of its manufacturing industries.
First, as mentioned above, the speed and scope of the manufacturing units’ relocation from China are not as fast and large as s
上海龙凤1314品茶微信ome people imagine. The industrial relocation from China started after the 2008 global financial crisis br
oke out, accelerated in 2012, and gained pace last year due to the Sino-US trade conflicts.
But the consequences are not expected to be very serious. For instance, from 2008 to 2018, global trade grew at an annual aver
age rate of 2.4 percent, while China saw 6.3 percent annual average export growth, which shows China’s export g上海龙凤1314品茶微信
rowth has been not only steady, but also 3.9 percentage points higher than that of global trade.
As a result, the share of China’s exports in global exports rose from 8.9
percent in 2008 to 12.9 percent in 2018, an increase of 4 percentage points. Which is a clear indica上海龙凤1314
tion that the relocation of manufacturing industries from China is not fast enough to make us feel worried.
Second, the rapid rise of emerging manufacturing industries in China will to a large extent offset t上海龙凤1314
he impact of the relocation of low-end industries on its entire manufacturing industry and e上海龙凤1314品茶微信
conomy. Therefore, China will continue to be a manufacturing and economic powerhouse.
ority will continue to come up with measures to grow the construction of facilities t
hat protect intangible cultural heritage and offer better conditions for cultural inheritors.上海乌托邦品茶微信
So far, several masters of intangible culture have moved in, and the park is talking
上海乌托邦with more than 30 inheritors nationwide about some form of cooperation.
The park offers more than 30 spaces for traditional artists to meet guests and show their work.
For example, many artists will make bracelets because they are currently popular,” Zhang says.上海乌托邦品茶微信
“But jade, after all, is non-renewable. If we all cut good material to make quick consumables, it would be pointless,” he adds.
上海乌托邦Zhang believes joining Yongyuan will allow for more thorough, long-term learning am
ong artisans in his field and collaboration with designers who are more familiar with the market.
The ultimate goal is to better combine the art of jade sculpture with tasteful design and then h上海乌托邦
elp the public to gain a better appreciation for the beauty of this traditional art, Zhang says.
上海乌托邦The China National Textile and Apparel Council has also settled in the park.
Handbags and clothes bearing elements of intangible culture are neatly placed at the co上海乌托邦品茶微信
uncil’s workshop for visitors to appreciate and, if it tickles their fancy, purchase.
上海乌托邦”We will mainly showcase products deriving from intangible cultural heritage i
nnovation in the field of textiles,” says Xia Jingjing, an employee with the textile council.
These products are selected from art masters working in the industry nationwide.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The council will also invite textile art masters to mee
t with designers and develop new products for the future, according to Xia.
“The Yongyuan office will also be a good platform to test the wate上海乌托邦
r and see what kinds of textile products appeal to consumer tastes,” Xia says.
上海乌托邦品茶微信Zhang Tiecheng, a Chinese arts and crafts master, is one of the first to move into Yongyuan.
His workshop at the park now presents a range of delicate jade items on sale to the public.
Zhang has engaged in the art of jade sculp
ting-an art form once practiced by ancient royal houses-for more than three decades.
He says that people are increasingly interested in the field because of its growi
ng returns, but that has unfortunately led many inheritors of art to make items purely for money.
