We bring the best wishes of President Trump. He’s aske

ed us to state that he also places great importance on his personal relationship with you,” Lighthizer said.

“We have had two very good days of negotiations. We feel that we have made headway on some very

, very important and very difficult issues,” he said. “We have additional work we have to do but we are hopeful.”

Xi asked Lighthizer and Mnuchin to extend his sincere greetings to President Trump, saying that he cherishes their good wor

king relationship and would like to keep in contact with him.
Cooperation based on fully respecting mutual interests is the best way for the two c

ountries to renew their trade and economic relations with a deal that is in line with the interests of both countries. If that has been the shared und

erstanding during this week’s talks, and it is carried forward in the negotiations in Washington next week, hopef

ully the two sides will be able to narrow the differences between them sufficiently so that the two leaders can pe

ncil in a date for a meeting at which they can shake hands on a deal that sets the right course for future relations.

Tianhe, another name for the galaxy in ancient China, imp

lies that the Chang’e 4 probe served as a pioneer in the history of human lunar exploration.

According to the IAU naming rules, the landing site name has the prefix of Statio in Latin. And so far onl

y two places have such a prefix, the first being the landing site of Apollo 11, Statio Tranquillitatis.

Zhinyu, Hegu and Tianjin are the names of stars in China’s ancient star chart, as the three pits in the lunar crater formed a shape similar to these three celestial bodies.

Mount Tai is one of the five most famous mountains in China in East China’s Shandong province and stands 1,545 me

ters tall above sea level. The central peak, Mons Tai, in the lunar crater measures 1,565 meters in height from its base.

In August 2010 and October 2015, China had applied to name the landing sites of Chang’e 1 and Ch

ang’e 3, and gained approval, and in January this year, China applied to the IAU for the five new names.

So far, a total of 12 lunar features have been named by China.

Naming entities on lunar surfaces started in the 17th century in Europe, and in the 20th century, the U

nited States and the former Soviet Union had the most names due to their lunar explorations.

Zhai, 32, is also a postdoctoral candidate at Peking Univ

versity. He found himself in hot water last week on social media after a netizen accused him of plagiarism.

The academy launched its own investigation on Mon

day. It completed its preliminary collection of evidence and notified Zhai, adding it has zero tolerance f

or academic misconduct and will look into other matters uncovered by netizens.

In a public apology posted on Sina Weibo on Thursday, Zhai said, “I lost myself amid a mentality of vanity and good luck.”

“After I starred in a few films and TV series, I became full of myself and forgot honesty is the most important principle,” Zhai said.

“Vanity misled me, and I brought this attitude into writing academic papers. I will withdraw from postdoctoral res

earch at Peking University and I am deeply sorry to my school, teachers, fans and the public,” he wrote.

In addition, the global total amount of new data generat

China is expected to generate 48.6 zettabytes (48.6 trillion gigabytes) of data in 2025, while the number for the US is forecast to be

30.6ZB, according to a study by the International Data Corporation (IDC) and data storage firm Seagate, a CNBC report said.

In addition, the global total amount of new data generated is set to grow from 33ZB in 2018 to 175ZB by

2025, with data collected from entertainment platforms, video surveillance footage, internet-co

nnected devices, productivity tools and metadata contributing to most of the growth, according to the report.

In the race for data, which, as IDC analysts put in their report, is

“at the heart of this digital world” and “a company’s most valuable intangible a

sset, which can create a competitive edge in digital transformation”, there is already a victory sign coming from China.

The country generated about 7.6ZB data last year, around 0.7ZB more than the US, the report said.

Forward-looking measures have already been taken

 by the Chinese monetary authority, earlier than other major central banks, based on the evaluation on macroeconomic conditions and the exter

nal environment. Policy fine-tuning will send positive signals to the market and support financial resilience, Zhang said.

This year, the remarkable change in tone from the world’s major central banks is shifting into a monet

ary easing cycle, and policies from the Chinese central bank are headed in the same direction, Zhang added.

A recent research note from Goldman Sachs forecast China’s credit growth to rise in January as commercial banks may be “si

gnificantly more aggressive than before” with encouragement from the easing policy. With the PBOC scheduled to

release more data this week, the trend may be reflected in faster growth of new yuan loans and the broad money supply.

Amid a good fall of snow, which Chinese traditionally believe promises a year of harvest and

prosperity, Chinese and United States top officials started two days of talks in Beijing on Thursday.

Space a new realm for Sino-US cooperationational Space Ad

After the successful landing of the Chang’e-4 lunar probe on the far side of the moon on Jan 3, Ch

ina is planning to launch Chang’e-5, a more advanced lunar probe, later this year to collect samples from the moon.

The Chang’e-4 mission, the first such mission in history, was an important m

ilestone in the lunar exploration program of not only China but also the wo

rld. About 50 years ago, the United States’ Apollo 11 landed the first humans on the moon, marking a critical step in spa

ce exploration. But no human has landed on the moon after 1972. Since Apollo 11, according to the US, effectively en

ded its space race with the Soviet Union, the Americans abandoned all ambitions to further explore space.

“Project Apollo” did not prompt other countries to join the space race because no country ot

her than the US and the Soviet Union could afford the huge costs. Even the US found it extremely difficult to s

ustain the project. For example, the cost of launching the Saturn V rocket, the carrier of Apollo 11 in 1969, was nearly $40

0 million, almost equal to the total budget of the US National Science Foundation that year.

Zheng Wen, director-general of the ministry’s department of

circulation industry development, said online sales have become an important engine to stimulate domestic spending and i

mports. “Durable consumer goods with high-tech features and branded foreign products have huge commercial potential,” Zheng said.

China UnionPay, the country’s largest bank card operater by market share, saw its total transaction volume over the ho

liday period reach 1.16 trillion yuan, jumping 71.4 percent year-on-year, the company said on Monday.

sq m, Tiantongyuan includes five major communities with

subdistricts that were built in 2000. In the first three years of the century, the population quickly rose to more than 100,000.

The family of Beijing native Du Bo moved to Tiantongyuan in 2005 because at 5,600 yuan per sq m the area was still relatively cheap.

“Our old home in Haidian district was scheduled for urgent demolition, so we had to find another place to live,” the 26-year-old said.

Though the family would have preferred an apartment in the downtown, Du’s parents could not afford

to move to such an expensive area. The urgency of the situation meant the family of four, which included his grandfather, had no alt

ernative but to move to the 120-sq-m, three-bedroom apartment in Tiantongyuan.

“Dirty” and “chaotic” were Du’s first impressions of the neighborhood. Unlicensed traders bloc

ked the roads, meaning people could not park their cars, and feral cats and dogs often ap

peared on the streets. As a result, some people simply bought apartments to rent to tenants.

Du said he has heard that in a building near his tower block, one bedroom can accommodate eight people. “It’s like a dormitory at college,” he said.

Some conservatives in South Korea voiced concerns over a we

akening alliance with the United States at the same time as negotiations with North Korea to deprive it

of its nuclear weapons hit a stalemate. They said Trump might use the failed military cost-sharing negotiations as an excuse to pull back so

me U.S. troops in South Korea as a bargaining chip in talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Feb. 3 that he has no plans to withdraw troops from S

outh Korea. During his election campaign, Trump suggested he could pull back troops from South Korea a

nd Japan unless they took on greater a share of the financial burdens of supporting U.S. soldiers deployed there.

South Korean media earlier reported that Trump demanded South Korea double its spe

nding for the U.S. military deployment, before his government eventually asked for 1.13 trillion won ($1 billion).

Seoul’s Foreign Ministry said the U.S. had called for a sharp increase in South Korean spending but didn’t elaborate.
