In June 2018, Oppo launched its high-end smartphone mod

Find X in Paris, marking its official foray into Europe. As of January, it had entered nine European markets, including Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Wu Qiang, who is in charge of Oppo’s overseas business, said the company is not adopting an aggressi

ve strategy in overseas markets. Instead, it strictly follows CEO Chen Mingyong’s principle of “eating rice bite by bite”.

“We will only enter the next market after doing a good job in existing markets,” Wu said.

Oppo’s intensified interest in foreign countries came after the Chinese sma

rtphone market hit a saturation point, with shipments declining for several quarters.

From September to December of 2018, smartphone shipments in China plunged almost 10 pe

rcent year-on-year, according to data from market research company International Data Corp or IDC.

Though Oppo outgrew the industry average to achieve an annual expansion rate of 1.5 pe

rcent in that time-frame, there is still a pressing need to look for new opportunities, Wu said.

The Olympic giant slalom champion won three giant slalo

  Hirscher’s season tally of 10 wins was reduced to nine after the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld Stefan Luitz’s ap

peal against a doping violation and reinstated the German’s victory in Beaver Creek on December 2.

  Luitz was disqualified when he was photographed inhaling oxygen from a mouthpiece between the fi

rst and second runs. The International Ski Federation (FIS) ruled it was against anti-doping rules at FIS events. Luitz lodged an app

eal on January 29 and it was heard on March 11. The panel ruled that the World Anti-Doping Code prevails over FIS laws.

  ”FIS fully accepts the decision of CAS and all World Cup records and the World Cup star

ting list for giant slalom has been adjusted to reflect the decision,” said an FIS statement.

Because our global supply and value chains are well estab

lished, it is fairly critical for us to transform the operational mode from simply

producing and shipping rolling stock to other countries to deepening the degree of international cooperation,” said Lou.

His remarks came after China and Argentina enhanced their relations to boost t

rade, investment, infrastructure and development of services-related facilities.

More Chinese companies such as China Railway Construction Corp and China National Machine

ry Industry Corp have already expanded their market presence in Argentina in the second half of 2018.

To upgrade the public transportation system in Buenos Aires, the country’s capital, and modernize the city’s infrast

ructure, Argentina’s Ministry of Transport signed a purchase deal for 200 rail cars and related parts from CRRC in Apr

il last year. It was the third carriage order from the ministry. The deal is worth about 2 billion yuan ($299 million).

Wang Jianru, the new engine’s chief designer, said it is bas

d on its predecessor, which is used with China’s Long March 11 carrier rocket and

features advanced composite materials built into its casing.

He said the new engine will be used on the upgraded variant of Long March 11, enabling the new model to transport a 1.5-ton

satellite or multiple satellites with a combined weight of 1.5 tons, to a sun-synchronous orbit 700 kilometers high. The

carrying capacity of the original Long March 11 for such orbits is 400 kilograms.

Development of the new engine shows there are plans to diversify the launch portfolio of Long March 11 to turn it from a si

ngle model into a family of models to enable it to meet different demands in the launch market.

The Long March 11, developed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology in Be

ijing, is a major solid-fueled carrier rocket and has been used for six flights from the Jiuquan Satellite Lau

nch Center in northwestern China. The rocket is mainly used for lifting small satellites to sun-synchronous orbit

The draft law also has clear positions on the protection of f

foreign investors’ rights regarding issues such as intellectual property rights protection a

nd technology transfer that are of common concern to foreign investors, according to Zhang.

Investments from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions are distinctive

in a way that they are not foreign investment, but are not entirely equivalent to domestic c

apital, and in practice, they are managed with reference to foreign investments, Zhang said.

With the new foreign investment law in place, relevant legal appli

cation arrangements will not be changed, and legal systems regarding investment from Hon

g Kong, Macao and Taiwan will be continuously revised and improved in coherence to the needs of the practice, and

will further provide a more open and easy business environment for investors from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, he said.

i’an released some draft guidance on testing on Feb 27, Xinhua News Agency reported.

Shenzhen surpasses HK in GDPal view of Shenzhen is se

Shenzhen’s 2018 gross domestic product surpassed that of Hong Kong, c

alculated by the annual average exchange rate, for the first time in history, as the latter u

nveiled the government’s 2019-20 budget on Wednesday.

Hong Kong’s GDP grew 3 percent in 2018 to HK$ 2.845 trillion ($362.4 billion), equivalent to 2.4 trillion yuan based on th

e average annual exchange rate, according to the government’s Census and Statistics Department.

Meanwhile, its neighboring city and China’s “Silicon Valley” Shenzhen earlier this ye

ar announced a year-on-year increase of 7.5 percent in GDP-2.422 trillion yuan in total.

Therefore, Hong Kong was behind by about 22 billion yuan and Shenzhen also ascen

ded to the top spot in GDP in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Shenzhen’s 2017 GDP already outperformed Hong Kong according to the rea

l-time exchange rate, but fell behind if calculated by the annual average exchange rate.

Huawei strongly denies the claims and is trying har

  d to persuade the world to use its 5G technology and not cave to pressure from Washington.

  ”This is not something that should be decided by politics,” Huawei’s chairman Guo Ping said on Sunday, ahead of the formal start of Mobile World Congress.

  Guo said he was hoping “independent sovereign states” will make “independent decision

s based on their own understanding of the situation and will not just listen to someone else’s order.”

  Huawei is taking the center stage at this year’s MWC in Barcelona. The event is expected to attract around 100,000 visi

  The US government is trying to convince its allies to shun Huawei equip

ment, which it says could be used by the Chinese government for spying. The company vehemently denies that claim.

  ”Just because you are from a certain country doesn’t mean your equipm

ent is not secure,” Guo said. He added that Huawei must abide by Chinese law and the

laws of countries where it operates. “Huawei will never, and dare not, and cannot violate any regulations,” he said.

  Vice President Mike Pence described Huawei as a “threat.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned other cou

ntries that using Huawei would make it more difficult for the United States to “partner” with them.
