Chen liked to say something to the audience about his pieces and I have always stopp

ed him. His music speaks for itself and is strong enough to communicate with people.”上海千花坊

Born in Shanghai, Yu, 55, studied piano with his grandfather, the composer Ding Shande, before he

上海千花坊品茶微信was trained at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and later at the Hochschule der Kunst in Berlin. On

his return from Europe, Yu has become a central character in the development of the Chinese classical music scene.

Like Yu, Chen, 68, is also a Shanghai native. In 1977, Chen was enrolled to study composition at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and in 1984上海千花坊

he moved to France where, for four years, he studied with Olivier Messiaen as the great French composer’s last pupil. He

上海千花坊品茶微信is best known as the musical director for the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and composed the

song, You and Me. He is also known for his cooperation with Chinese film director Zhang Yimou on the 2001 ballet prod上海千花坊

“When I first wrote Wu Xing, the piece was not well received, since the melodies were not smo

oth and not considered beautiful in a traditional way,” says Chen. “But, over the course of the last 20 years, a gr

owing number of people have developed a liking for it and it’s beyond my expectation.”上海千花坊品茶微信

The violin concerto, La joie de la Souffrance, was written in 2017, and Chen added color w

ith a percussion section. Maxim Vengerov played the solo part and the violinist premiered the work alon

g with China Philharmonic under the baton of Yu during the 20th Beijing Music Festival.

The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra also knows the violin conce

rto very well since it was a test piece for the 2018 Shanghai Isaac

Stern International Violin Competition and was played by the six finalists, accompanied by the Orchestra.

“The relationship between a composer and his music is like that of a biological father and his

children. For the interpreters, like the conductors and symphony orchestras, they are like the ‘f

oster parents’ of the work,” says Chen. “As the ‘biological father’, I can do nothing about my work after I finished wr

ting it, but Yu has his own understanding of my music, which sometimes surprises me.”

enovo unveils upgraded h上海千花坊ance computing plat

Tech firm Lenovo Group Ltd unveiled its upgraded high-performance co

mputing platform on Friday, as the country’s tech giants pushed forward the research and deve上海千花坊品茶微信

lopment of supercomputers in an attempt to post global leading breakthroughs.

上海千花坊The latest system is named Shenteng X9000. It is an integrat

ed solution network embedded with several key technologies such as high-performance comp

uting, artificial intelligence and big data, which industry insiders said can tackle a variety of scenarios.上海千花坊品茶微信

“The country’s high-performance computing has embraced

上海千花坊new breakthroughs,” said Tong Fuyao, senior vice-president of Lenovo.

China has emphasized the importance of high-performance comp

uting, highlighted by the use and application of supercomputers, in making innovations.上海千花坊品茶微信

Top500, one of the most authoritative rankings on supercomputers globally, said the co

上海千花坊untry continued to dominate the world’s fastest supercomputers in terms of the number of systems.

With 219 systems, the nation tops the supercomputer list and accounted for 4

3.8 percent of the world’s total, followed by the United States with 116 and Japan with 29.上海千花坊品茶微信

In the list, Lenovo claimed the greatest number of systems globally with 173, while the cou

上海千花坊ntry’s server maker Inspur Group hit 71, and supercomputer manufacturer Sugon stood at 63.

“Compared with our competitors, Lenovo is a unique company that can

offer solutions spanning cloud to the edge, meaning the firm can meet all kinds of de上海千花坊品茶微信

mands from clients,” said Scott Tease, executive director of HPC and AI at Lenovo.

上海千花坊品茶微信Even though the US Commerce Department added five Chinese supercomputer

companies to its Entity List barred from buying US technology, Scott said Lenovo has been able to deal wi

th the development because “Lenovo is a China-based company but (has) globalized” its operations.上海千花坊品茶微信

“We consider ourselves a global asset for high-performance computing. We are able to drive the value of high-perfo

上海千花坊rmance computing throughout different countries, not just for one or two countries only,” he said.

Qian Depei, dean of the School of Data and Computer Science of Su上海千花坊品茶微信

n Yat-sen University, pointed out that though China has gained momentum in the number of supe

rcomputers globally, there are still many challenges ahead, especially in the E-level supercomputer.

Apple supports more t上海千花坊 jobs in China, tech

Apple Inc said it has supported more than 5 million jobs in China through its local companies, research

and development centers, local suppliers and third-party mobile application developers on its App Store.上海千花坊女神会所

The United States tech giant said that it derived about 20 percent of its global revenue from China in 2018, up $7 billion from a year ago.

上海千花坊It has set up nine companies in China, with 71 branches nationwide. It also had 51 retail

stores across the country by the end of 2018, Apple added in its latest China corporate social responsibility report.

The Wall Street Journal reported earlier that Apple will manufacture its new Mac Pro comp上海千花坊女神会所

uter in China, shifting production of its only major device assembled in the US to China.

Ecolab Inc, a United States-based global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services, will invest mo

e on innovation in China and get focused on three of its core businesses, its top management said.上海千花坊

“A big area of focus for us more recently has been digital innovation,” said Jill Wyant, executive vice-president of regions, Ecolab. She is also the president of

上海千花坊女神会所the company’s global healthcare unit. “We have a corporate relationship with Microsoft in terms of some of their cloud co

mputing platforms and solutions. We’re in the process of extending that relationship in china. We’ve hired a chief dig

ital officer and hired someone to help us look after digital infrastructure and architecture.”上海千花坊

Ecolab made a multimillion-dollar investment in innovation in China. The comp

any built a research and development center in Shanghai around a decade ago.

Apple said in a statement, “the new Mac Pro is designed and engineered in California and includes components from seve上海千花坊女神会所

ral countries including the United States”, and “final assembly is only one part of the manufacturing process”.

Apple has been expanding its R&D push in China, one of the world’s largest consumer elec

上海千花坊女神会所tronics markets. Since 2017, it has established four R&D centers in the country – one each in Beijing, Sh

enzhen, Shanghai, and Suzhou – entailing a combined investment of 3.5 billion yuan ($509 million) and emp

loyment for over 1,000 people dedicated to innovation in hardware, software and services.上海千花坊女神会所

The company directly employed over 13,600 people in China by the end of 2018.

Environmental experts 上海千花坊lcomed the manda

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.

Since the area features two free trade zones in Shang

上海千花坊Kong Qingwei, chairman of China Pacific Insurance (Group) Co Ltd, said t

he Yangtze River Delta region is a key driver of the group’s annual income and inno

vative development. Of the insurer’s 126 million customers in China, 30 million live in the region, and account for 80

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.

of its most dynamic enterprises from North West, Free Stat

上海千花坊e and Limpopo provinces, involving a variety of sectors, including agro-processing, biodiesel produ

ure development, textile and fashion, farming, solar energy and tourism.

South Africa’s business trends and the entrepreneurial landscape require far more sophisticated sk上海千花坊

ills to achieve international competitiveness to ensure access to global markets for SMEs, the director-general said.

“We believe that small, medium and micro enterprises and coop

eratives are important drivers of economic growth and job creation,” Vries said.

上海千花坊上海品茶In total, more than 70 small, medium and micro enterprises of South Afric

a will promote their products and investment opportunities during this year’s event.

The event’s organizers have launched a series of overseas promotions to showcase the annu

al fair, and 1,028 exhibition booths have been confirmed already by businesses and organizations from 31 countries and regions.

The fair will include special exhibition zones covering countries related to the Belt and Road上海千花坊上海品茶

Initiative, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, as well as China’s Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

“Since the announcement of the Belt and Road Initiative, Poland has been willing to be a part of it and an im

portant trade and economic partner for China,” said Joanna Skoczek, consul general of Poland in Guangzhou.

Skoczek said the number of Chinese visiting P上海千花坊上海品茶oland in the first quarter of 2017 increased by 85 percent compared with the same period last year. The trade volume between Guangdong and Poland was

nearly $4.2 billion in 2016, increasing 13.3 percent year-on-year and accounting for over one-fifth of the total between China and Poland.

“Chinese businesses are encouraged to visit Poland to strengthen the mutual cooperation in the fields of trading, investment and education,” Skoczek said.

Basic telecommunication service providers will be encouraged to further lower prices. The g

net traffic between the mainland and Hong Kong and Macao by 30 percent. A “floor-price” rate will be set for low-income and elderly populations.

Basic telecommunication service providers will be urged to ensure that cellphone users n
