Digital health tools that inform and empower patients can also play a crucial role in p
reventing disease. Simple, existing, cost-effective technology, such as mobile phones and broadband, can ma上海千花坊品茶微信
ke a huge difference in raising awareness of the causes and early symptoms of diseases. PATH and the No
上海千花坊vartis Foundation, for example, are collaborating on the Communities for Healthy Hearts program in Vietnam, w
hich uses digital technology to improve and accelerate control of hypertension－the leading cause of heart disease.
Finally, digital technology can help to deliver healthcare to people in remote or und上海千花坊品茶微信
erserved areas, thereby tackling one of the greatest obstacles to reducing disease. Using
mobile phones, WhatsApp, and text messages can improve the quality and accessibility of care for millions of people. In this re上海千花坊品茶微信
gard, the Novartis Foundation and PATH have introduced telemedicine in Ghana, which connects rural inhabitants wi
th trained healthcare professionals, and digital dashboards that enable better, faster malaria care.上海千花坊品茶微信
Digital data must be made part of health systems
Digital data and technology must be fully integrated into national health systems, and should become as essential as hos
pital beds. Too many digital health pilot programs over the past decade have been uncoordinated and focused on sing上海千花坊
le issues. Leadership from national governments is therefore critical to ensuring a coherent approach.
Fortunately, global and country-led efforts are starting to move in this direction. Earlier this year, for example, the D上海千花坊品茶微信
emocratic Republic of the Congo established its first digital health agency, with the aspiration of improving ma
nagement of the healthcare system, providing better care, and making services more accessible.
We can solve the global health crisis and achieve universal coverage, but only by making
digital tools central to all countries’ health systems. No single organization can achieve this on its own: we
need the public, private and social sectors to work together. In fact, the goal must be to make these new technologies s
o widespread that we no longer need to refer to “digital” health, because that is what all health systems will be.

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment
Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊
During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊
volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.
• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所
Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral
上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga
me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.
In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o
t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr
ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p
ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所
untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.
In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil
lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec
onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre
ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.
• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?
Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that
have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high
ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm
ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the
international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan上海千花坊品茶微信
achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F
rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.
The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open上海千花坊
ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.
This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl
e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.上海千花坊品茶微信
The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso
n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.上海千花坊品茶微信
It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi
t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all上海千花坊品茶微信
of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V
alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.
Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft
er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo
bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.
It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to
retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o
ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.

The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the thanks for that can go to a
reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.
上海千花坊With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their songs a
nd techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.
For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced the golden days of Chi 上海千花坊女神会所
nese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established B
eijing-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head fro
上海千花坊女神会所m Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiulian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.
For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.
The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所
ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

Five AI startups have signed memoranda of understanding with the first AI space, covering areas from the combination of AI and medical care, education and big data.
