Habib said relations with China have also benefited Boeing, another major company in Washington.

“There’s no question that China is the most significant destinati

on for aerospace,” said Habib, as China “has the biggest middle class and it’s growing. Alon

g with that comes a tremendous increase in demand for both passenger travel and freight mobility.”

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agricultural products

such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

By late April, China had been hit by 129 African swin

fever outbreaks, affecting all 31 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions on the mainland, since the country’s first reported outb

reak in Shenyang, Liaoning province, in August, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

This resulted in more than 1 million pigs being slaughtered to prevent and control the disease, which is deadly to pigs but does no

t affect people. The ministry has called for intensified research and development to expedite the availability of v

accines for disease prevention and control, but admitted difficulties due to the complex nature of the virus.

China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork, with an a

nnual production of 700 million pigs. Pork accounts for 62 percent of meat con

sumption in China, and sustained outbreaks of African swine fever will cause devastating consequences to the pi

g industry and endanger China’s food security, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences said.

than 10 million visitors each year. Architect Ieoh Ming Pei

World-renowned architect Ieoh Ming Pei, commonly known as I.M. Pei,

has died at the age of 102 at his home in Manhattan, according to multiple reports on Thursday.

Praised as “one of the most revered architects in the world” by The New York Times, Pei has le

ft the world many of its most well-known architectural designs, among many other intangible heritages.

Pei’s modern designs and high-profile projects led him to be considered one of the most high-prof

ile architects of the 20th century, with the renovation of Paris’ Louvre Museum perhaps the most famo

us project he embarked on. He was also involved in the building of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

What Pei valued most in architecture, as he put it, was that it must “stand th

e test of time”. He also valued simplicity: “The simpler the solution, the more powerful it is,” he once said.

extreme pressure on the other, it will cause a legitimate counterattack.

“The measures from us are not only to safeguard China’s own rights, b

Wang made the remark in a joint news conference with his Russian

counterpart Sergei Lavrov during his visit to the Black Sea coastal city of Sochi.

Filmmakers should focus more on publicity

Li Guomin, adviser to China Film Association and Changchun Film Group Corporation

That China has produced some excellent films, including the Red Sorghum, Farewell My Concubine and The Wan

US policy has done a disservice to the international com

munity’s efforts to advance the Middle East peace process and the remarks by the president’s son-in-law and a

dviser Jared Kushner indicating that an upcoming US peace plan does not include a two-state solution with the Palestinians sh

ows the US is hoping to undermine the international consensus built on that premise. Given its complex and chronic nat

ure, there is no quick remedy to the decades-old enmity between Israelis and Palestinians. But both sides need to exe

rcise the utmost restraint so as to avoid sparking another vicious circle of violence.

Meanwhile, the latest bloodshed should convince the inte

rnational community of the urgency of finding a way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian co

nflict. The US is in no position to act as mediator, but it should avoid doing anything to make the situ

ation worse. And notwithstanding the US stance, the consensus on a two-state solution needs to be shored up and grea

ter efforts need to be made to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli issue through dialogue and negotiations.

Horticultural exhibits delve into high-tech magic

The ongoing International Horticultural Exhibition 2019 in Beijing is all about gar

dening, but it doesn’t shy away from high technology that improves visitors’ experience.

To provide visitors with information services, ticket purchasing, parking, travel routes, introductions to scenic sp

ots, medical services, performance arrangements and traveling tips, a mobile phone app called Expo 2019 was developed.

It’s like having a tour guide at hand, said Guo Ziliang, an official at the Beijing World Horticultural Expo Coordination Bureau, the expo’s organizer.

“The app shows people how to conveniently and efficiently make their way through the park,” he said. “It also helps improve the park’s reception capacity.”

The 162-day expo, from April 29 to Oct 7, is expected to receive a total of 16 million visitors.

The app, available in bilingual versions-English and Chinese-can be downloaded for free from online app stores.
