upon the successful experiences of others and find proper ways of rural governance that suit their region best.”
China will release a list of generic drugs by the end of June this year to g
uide enterprises to develop, register and produce urgently needed generic drugs fo
r clinical use, public health and safety, according to the National Health Commission.
Those on the list will be the first batch of generic drugs of which production will be encouraged, the Commission said, ad
ding that a renewed list would be released by the end of each year starting from 2020.
With healthcare reform going deeper and a population increasingly ageing, China encoura
ges both the creation of new drugs and the research and development of generic drugs, and strives
n London has helped set up links between Surrey and Liaoning provinc

standing was built about mutual opportunities, since when I have also been there,” Samuels said.
As the gateway to the industrial heartland of northeast China, Liao
ning has huge commercial market potential, with more than 109 million customers, and S
amuels believes Surrey has a headstart on some other regions because of its existing connections.
“The vice-chancellor of Surrey University, Professor Max Lu, is a graduate of
North Eastern University in Shenyang, and retains strong alumni links. My visit there helped strengthen e
xisting connections between the two institutions, and I’m hopeful thi
s will lead to greater mutual understanding and tangiblebenefits in the months to come.”
promoting the application of e-buses, by supporting technology innovation, improving fiscal
and taxation policies, enhancing infrastructure construction, as well as reinforcing fund supervision.
“It is estimated that in the future, China’s e-bus market will transform to a more market-driven pattern, instead of policy-driv
en. The market will shift from an incremental market to a stock market, maintaining steady growth,” he said.
Bloomberg New Energy Finance estimates that EVs will attain price parity by the mid 2020s, as lithium battery pric
es have been falling. From 2010 to 2018, lithium battery prices dropped by over 85 percent, with an annual average decl
ine rate of 20 percent. And the decline, with the same rate, is estimated to continue for the next few years.

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.
Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.
He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg
ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.
“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th
e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.
This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co
nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.
Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.
