The ChiNext and the NEEQ are both existing equity

 trading platforms, mainly serving China’s Nasdaq-style high-growth enterprises and small to medium-sized enterprises, respectively.

Li Chao, vice-chairman of the regulatory commission, said the new board’s registration sys

tem will not lead to a large number of enterprises flooding onto the new board, thus avoiding hu

rting market liquidity. The new board will have appropriate listing standards and procedures, Li said.

“Regulators’ remarks have dispelled investors’ concerns that the ne

w board may take a toll on the liquidity of existing boards,” said Hong Rong, founder of Ho

nda Education, a Shanghai-based investor education platform. “Moreover, the regulators delivered clear signals that the

ChiNext and NEEQ can benefit from the reform experiences of the new board in the long term.”

Regulators’ remarks constitute a boost to investor sentiment on the A-share market, Hong s

aid. “I think investors are gradually forming a consensus that the country attaches great importance on de

veloping a strong capital market that functions well in not only financing but investing.”

China’s blue-chip CSI300 index had risen 22.2 percent to 3,678.39 points from the start of

this year to Wednesday, and Morgan Stanley has raised this year’s target for the index to 4,300 points.

“The US is a shining example of how to inspire passion for technological innovation and dev

elopment. We too have been inspired by your history of creativity and hard work,” said the letter, beari

ng the name Catherine Chen, a Director of the Board at Huawei, who is in charge of public and government affairs.

“I am writing to you in the hopes that we can come to understand each other better. In recent years, the US government has developed some mi

sunderstandings about us. We would like to draw your attention to the facts,” the letter said.

driven breakthroughs. Although among the two, the Huawei

Mate X is more practical than Galaxy Fold because the latter is folded inward to lower the risk of br

eaking apart while falling down, which is not so useful when breaking-glass insurance is popular.

More importantly, the “new” foldable smartphones are hardly of any pr

actical use. Of course, one can easily double the display of the foldable smartphone by un

folding it so it has the size of an iPad, but that’s all. In plain words, the foldable display enables users to combine a tablet an

d a smartphone into one. There might be more uses in the future, but at least not for now.

When touchable displays for smartphones was invented, they did not get popularized until certain apps that suit

ed touchable displays only, such as Fruit Ninjia, gained popularity. Now foldable smartphones faces a similar pr

oblem. Only when apps that suit the foldable smartphones are developed will the phones be truly accepted by the market.

Wu Shuyuan, a senior analyst at Sigmaintell, a company specialized in display analysis

Samsung Fold and Huawei Mate X are both foldable smartphones, but they differ greatly in terms of des

ign. The former is folded inward while the latter is folded outward, and each has its advantages and disadvantages.

An archive video report of Trump’s 1996 Moscow trip

  emerged online in late January. The news report — misidentified on You

Tube as dating from 1995 — shows Lorber, Lebow and Trump in discussion with Mo

scow’s then deputy mayor, Vladimir Resin, and his staff, with Geovanis looking on from the background.

  Blocked numbers and ‘dirt’ on Clinton

  Lorber has already been linked to the Senate investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections. The New York Times n

amed him earlier this month as one of the Trump family associates who spoke with Donald Trump J

r. from blocked numbers around the time of a highly scrutinized 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York.

  That meeting was attended by top Trump campaign advisers –— Trump Jr., the Presid

ent’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Manafort — and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskya, who had pr

omised dirt on Trump’s election opponent, Hillary Clinton. Lorber has not responded to multiple calls for comment.

Australia and New Zealand have already blocked mobil

  using equipment from Huawei, the world’s biggest maker of telecommunications equipment, over security concerns.

  The United States has made it clear that any country that uses Huawei will find its opportunities to work with Was

hington limited. In a speech in Munich on Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence described the company as a “threat.”

  ”Chinese law requires them to provide Beijing’s vast security apparatus with access to any data that touches their networks or equipment,” Pence said.

  The RUSI report reached a similar conclusion, saying that although Huawei may be a pri

vate company, China’s national security laws required cooperation with authorities when requested.

  ”Huawei’s Chinese staff have no choice but to accede to requests from Chinese government departments,” the report said.

  The Chinese government has denied it would demand access to Huawei’s technology for spying, and the company has said it would refuse such a request.

Dozens of winter swimmers from Yuhuan, Zhejiang, gathered at the beach behind Kanmen and rushed into to the sea against the cold wind to enjoy s

wimming. “We coastal people start the new year with our unique sport,” winter swimming enthusiast Chen Zhongfang said.

In preparation for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, games on snow and ice are drawing more interest. In snow and ic

e parks in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, a number of experiential projects have been set up, such

as a snow football field, ice bumper cars, curling, ice gyro and a snow circle. Thousands of citizens take part in such activities every day.

d inclusive world economy, China’s ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming, said in London on Thursday.
