underlines legacy of Long Marchnping visits a museum mark

President Xi Jinping encouraged the Chinese people to be prepared for a new Long March to

ward national rejuvenation during a visit to a revolutionary base in Jiangxi province on Monday.

“We came here to the starting point of the Long March to exper

ience the situation of the Red Army’s departure during those years. Now there is a new Long

March, and we should make a new start,” Xi said at a memorial park in Yudu county, Ganzhou.

The Long March covered over 12,500 kilometers from October 1934 to October 1936. It was a military

maneuver carried out by the Red Army and led by the Communist Party of China to combat the Ku

omintang regime. The expedition, beginning in Yudu, laid the foundation for the Party’s victory.

Weaker economic growth puts at risk essential invest

ments in areas such as education, health, climate change adaptation and sustainable infrastructure.

The growth outlook in all major developed economies and most developin

g regions has weakened due to a confluence of both domestic and external factors, the report said.

Following an expansion of 3 percent in 2018, world gross product growth is now projected to moderat

e to 2.7 percent in 2019 and 2.9 percent in 2020, reflecting a downward revision from the forecasts released in January.

The report identifies several downside risks that could trigger a sharper or more prolonged growth slowdown, potentially infl

icting significant damage on development progress. Those risks include a further escalation in trade te

nsions, a sudden deterioration in financial conditions, and the accelerating effects of climate change.

At some sections of the flight, the Russian strategic bombers were shadowed by US Air Force F-22 fighter jets, the statement said.

The Tu-95MS strategic bombers spent over 12 hours in the air, the ministry specified.

Sichuan-Tibet Railway to see high-speed trains at 200 kmh

he Sichuan-Tibet Railway, the second railway line linking the Tibet autonomous region to other parts of China, will opera

te high-speed trains with a designed running speed of 200 kilometers per hour, thecover.cn reported.

China Railway Eryuan Engineering Group Co Ltd, which is designing the line, revealed a draft plan on Wednesday that tra

ins on the whole Sichuan-Tibet line will travel with a designated speed of 200 km/h, with some segments limited to 160 km/h.

The 1,600-kilometer-long line under construction is designed to start from Chengdu, pass through Ya’an and Kan

gding, then enter Tibet via Qamdo and end at Lhasa. The 140-kilometer Chengdu-Ya’an high-speed railway, whic

h serves part of the Sichuan-Tibet Railway, started operation last year with a maximum speed of 200 km/h.

When the desired train tickets are not available at the tick

et booking site and the app of the China Railway Corporation, a person can use the “waiting” function, and the system will add the wanted ticket information to a list.

One person could make an order for three tickets in the waiting list, and the function will be

free and much more efficient than other third-party software to grab tickets, according to the operator.

When ticket buyers cancel or change their tickets, the system will allocate the returned tickets to waiting buyers on the list.

To use this function, people have to pass a verification process on their status through facial recognition.

They will have to prepay the maximum price for each ticket, and once the

y have obtained the tickets, the difference from the actual fare will be refunded. If they f

Before his retirement, Wang irrigated farmland for de

nd for decades and witnessed local farmers’ continuous battles against sandstorms.

“It didn’t just feel like a black storm, it was as if the whole desert was approachi

ng,” recalls Liu Conghui, a writer who was born, and still lives, near the farm Wang once worked.

As the menacing sandstorms made the area increasingly inhospitable, Liu’s whole community planned to up sticks.

To restore the local ecosystem, the Chinese government launched

a 10.7 billion yuan ($1.6 billion) project in 2001. A set of measures were adopted such as sav

ing water, converting farmland into grassland, providing treatment for dry riverways and building dams. In addition to t

hose measures, industrial and agricultural use of water in cities and counties along the river was limited.

Over the past two decades, Xinjiang has infused 7.7 billion cubic meters of water into

the dry trunk stream of the lower reaches of the Tarim River in 19 rounds of water diversion.

ponds and lakes dotting the pasture, but thanks to an im

anks to an improved ecosystem, fish are returning to those waters.

The 38-year-old says his father once grazed his flock in this area of northwest China’s X

injiang Uygur autonomous region, which he described as being “barren and more like a desert back in the day”.

The Tarim River runs 1,321 kilometers along the rim of the barren Tarim Basin, a sparsely populated area about the size of Poland.

Excessive irrigation in the past used up too much water, which caused the lower 400 km of t

he Tarim River to run dry in the early 1970s and pushed surrounding trees to the verge of disappearance.

Born in the village of Yengisu by the dried-up river, Ahmat never saw the water as a child. Sa

nd would slowly cover the caked riverbed. To find water, Ahmat’s family and flock had to move 200 km north.

Xinjiang to launch up to 100 trains for tourists

As tours to Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region have become increasingly popular among tourists from home and abroad, local

authorities have announced a plan recently to launch as many as 100 special trains for tourists from May to October.

The local railway authorities will step up cooperation with other part

s of the country to boost Xinjiang’s tourism development, according to Huang Ti

ngfen, deputy general manager of Xinjiang Railway Tourism Development Group.

The trains will provide easier access to both the southern and northern parts of Xinjia

ng, said Huang. It will also be more convenient for Xinjiang residents to travel to other parts of the country.

Although Huang was diagnosed with mild schizophrenia, th

the court said that it was not able to exempt him from punishment as the disorder d

id not have an obvious influence on his ability to distinguish between right and wrong.

“He had an extremely despicable motive, used an extremely cruel manner to carry out the cri

me, and caused a severe consequence and extremely negative social impact,” the court said.

The court pointed out that Huang had planned to carry out the crime for a long time, visiting

several kindergartens and primary schools in Shanghai and Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong pro

vince, before deciding where to carry out the attack.Police examine the site of a knife attack that occurred in downtown Sh

Reportedly, the United States administration is considering extending its attacks on

Chinese companies by blacklisting China’s largest surveillance equipment manufacturer Hikvision.

If so, Hikvision — which has about 20 percent of the global market share and has been the

leading player in the industry for seven consecutive years — will become the fourth Chinese company Wa

shington has targeted after the telecommunications companies ZTE and Huawei, and drone maker DJI.

Unlike the previous three companies, which the US administrat
