Data cited from Zhaopin, an online recruitment platform

 shows that college students slated to graduate in 2019 have higher expectations of working in these cities, than in cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

According to the platform, 44 percent of new graduates this year wish to find their jobs in new fir

st-tier cities, while only about 30 percent hope to work in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

Yang Zheng, who graduated with a master’s degree from Fudan University in Shanghai in March, said th

at he received three offers from companies in the city, but finally chose a high-tech enterprise in neighboring Hangzhou.

“I’ve spent about seven years in Shanghai, it’s time to explore a new world,” he said, laughing. “The most importa

nt reason I chose Hangzhou is the city’s potential development in the high-tech industry, which can bring us more opportunities.”

A recent report by the Beijing Municipal Education

 Commission said that more than 231,000 college students graduated from universities in

Beijing last year, but 37.5 percent of employed graduates chose to work outside the capital.

A female college student surnamed Zhang said that she chose to w

ork in Wuhan, Hubei province, after graduating from Tsinghua University in June, 2018.

“The biggest reason driving me away from Beijing was the living cost,” she said. “Tho

ugh I can earn 8,000 ($1,160) or even 10,000 yuan a month in Beijing, the rent may cost me 3,000 yuan or more ea

ch month, let alone other expenses such as meals, transportation and getting together with friends.”

In contrast, some so-called new first-tier cities like Chengdu, Sichua

n province; Hangzhou, Zhejiang province; and Wuhan have sprung up as new at

tractions to college graduates for their cheaper living costs and preferential policies to newcomers.

From chips to its self-developed operating system, Huawe

wei has long been preparing for independent research and development in core technologies. It has the ab

ility to adjust to changes in the global market,” said Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Information Consumption Alliance.

Huawei has also made preparations with core chipsets. Existing st

ocks are thought to provide the company with a buffer of six months to a year, he said.

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a

great extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of eco

nomics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objecti

ves-though many of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the

US hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

Huawei earlier said it had been preparing a contingency

ncy plan for such a block to Android by developing its own technology, of

which some is already being used in products sold in China, said the Reuters report.

The impact is limited in the Chinese market, as most of Go

ogle’s services have alternatives offered by domestic competitors like Tencent and Baidu.

However, Huawei’s European market could be affected as Huawei licenses these serv

ices from Google in Europe.A radio telescope in Shanghai that has made significant contributions to ast

Weather-related disasters such as typhoons pose a thr

reat to life and property. Tracking their path could help local authorities decide how to proceed with evacuations,” she said.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Suppor

t Mechanism for international users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

So far, 15 countries including Iran and Mongolia have registered as users of the mechanism.

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satel

lite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China

Meteorological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

d provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.

“Weather-related disasters such as typhoons pose a threat to life and property. T

As for China, the significant deviation in the US’ stanc

es and objectives in the trade talks should be a warning for it to more strictly stick to its principles. And t

he fact that the US wants to challenge the laws of economics should not be reason for China to try to do the same.
