Xing Ziqiang, chief economist with investment bank Mo

organ Stanley China, said this age group will be a main driver of the consumption upgrade in the next decade, with consum

ption in third- and fourth-tier cities expected to reach 45 trillion yuan in 2030, compared with 15 trillion yuan in 2017.

There were estimated to be about 112 million small-town youths in

China last year, according to mobile internet industry consultancy iiMedia Research.

Chen Ke, a senior partner with global consultancy Roland Berger, said that with lower housing prices in third- and fourth-tier c

ities, small-town youths have sizable disposable income and are more willing to spend a larger proportion of th

eir income on daily consumption, compared with people of the same ages living in bigger cities.

“They also have an increasing desire to live a better material and spir

itual life, are becoming more interested in personal products and are more willing to sp

end on entertainment and hobbies, as they have more spare time than their peers in big cities,” he said.

er, that are more common in China but are rare in the US,” he said, adding that cooperation on research for those canc

ers can help the US improve understanding of them and help China develop new drugs faster.

Chen said the potential for China’s cancer drug market is huge and dynamic. The market is projected to reach $30 billi

on by the year 2024, according to a recent report by US company Research and Markets.

rug market in China and are expected to do so in the near future, according to the report.

The tanks lined up, were kept 50 meters apart and stre

ched for 10 km, making it a memorable scene for a generation.

In October 2016, the bridge was closed for repairs after being open for almost 50 years. The 100,000 vehicles it carried each day far

exceeded its designed capacity of 8,000, causing many cracks to appear in the structure. It has been repaired 12 times since 2002.

Other problems it faced included falling mortar and metal fatigue.

The government decided to spend more than 1.1 billion yuan ($164 million) on the repairs.

The structure’s original concrete deck was replaced by a steel one, which is lighter and h

as greater durability. The replacement work was carried out above the 27,000-volt railway line. Any falling mater

ial, even a screw, would have caused a power failure and disrupted services on the busy Beijing-Shanghai Rail

way. Workers had to erect scaffolding and protective nets when no trains were passing.

The diameter of the lamp bases on the bridge were reduced by 5 ce

ntimeters, making the sidewalk wider and more convenient for pedestrians.

Wow! Do the authors of the books expect a 1-year-ol

d girl to learn what her father did not study until the third year of university? How could I

explain such complex concepts as, say, superposition states, to my 1-year-old daughter?

Yet, as I started this “mission impossible”, I soon realized it might not be as difficult as I first thought. The quantu

m physics book is, like all the books I buy for her, still a cartoon book, containing very few words.

Open the first page and you see a baby running after a cat, drawn in

a simple, colorful style that every infant will fall in love with at first sight.

Then the story became faster-paced. The cat jumped into a box and the box shut automatic

ally. The baby sat next to the closed box, not knowing what his furry friend was doing inside.

“Is the cat asleep or awake?” A question emerged from the book, w

ith the answer on the next page: “It can be both and in quantum physics.

With the coming of 5G commercialization, Miao disclosed

 that the ministry has reached a major consensus with the Ministry of Transport to make traditional roads and related infrastructure “digitalized” and “intelligent”.

Traffic lights, for instance, will benefit from 5G, with its large bandwidth and low l

atency, enabling them to send signals according to real-time road conditions, he said.

Currently in China, major equipment makers including Huawei Technologies Co Ltd are developing related standards, technologies and infrastructure.

“The 5G-related plans made by telecom experts might not meet the actual needs in real applications,” sai

d Yang Chaobin, president of 5G product line at Huawei. “Therefore, it’s important to involve all types of industries in 5G construction.”
