Making use of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become a hub
With its modern industrial system, Tianhe district in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province, is seizing the oppo上海千花网品茶微信
rtunities brought about by the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to become an
international first-class central business district, an international core area for innovation in science and t
上海千花网echnology, and a demonstration zone for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao cooperation.
Its solid industrial foundation and favorable business environment, as well as the gove
rnment’s strong policy support, attract large numbers of enterprises to the district.上海千花网品茶微信
By the end of November, 162 out of the Fortune Global 500 enterprises had invested in 228 proj
上海千花网ects in finance, science and technology, trade and commercial services in Tianhe. It is the city
‘s center for headquarters, with 104, or 29 percent of the total across Guangzhou, making Tianhe’s business dis
trict one of the three largest world-class central business districts in China. Among these, 95 percent of the h上海千花网
eadquarters in Tianhe are in the service sector and 25 headquarters are foreign-funded ventures.
上海千花网In the first three quarters of 2017, Tianhe’s GDP hit 304 billion yuan ($46 billion), up 9.5 percen
t year-on-year. Its GDP has been the highest among all the districts in Guangzhou for 10 years consecutively.
More importantly, experts said innovation, high-tech and service上海千花网
sectors have become the driving force of the district’s economic growth. The district go
上海千花网品茶微信vernment focuses more on quality rather than quantity when it comes to the economy.
With 53 innovation platforms and 51 startup incubators above city level, the district government is carrying out what it c
alls its “super incubator” strategy. It is making use of old industrial parks, factory workshops and public sites co上海千花网品茶微信
llectively owned by villagers to provide a platform for startups and to foster local economic growth. So far, Tianhe has cr
eated 29 of this kind of incubators for startups and innovation, covering a total area of 1.11 million square meters. The di
strict is also implementing a convenient “five-in-one” new business registration system.上海千花网品茶微信
As a center of finance and technology industries, Tianhe has 215 registered financial agencie
s and 33 enterprises listed on the stock market. It boasts 378 research and development institutes set u
p by enterprises, 86 institutes affiliated to universities and governments, and 239 engineering technology research centers.上海千花网品茶微信
Last year, 4,312 patent applications were submitted in Tianhe, 32 percent
of the city’s total and a rise of 45 percent year-on-year. Among these 1,158 patents were granted.
By the end of last year, Tianhe had 1,403 high and new-technology ent
erprises, as well as more than 50,000 science and technology enterprises.

Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.
It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所
after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of
上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.
The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.
The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419
ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad
上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”
Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419
After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.
上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led
by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419
Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje
上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.
“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level
sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信
New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.
Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien
t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.
More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o
f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.
The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult
ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s
ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.
In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potential of massive data as mounting firms globally own “d
上海千花网女神会所ark data” and very few know how to use it, an industry insider said during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Ch
ampions 2019, also known as Summer Davos, which ended Wednesday in Dalian, Liaoning province.
“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “da
rk data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org上海千花网女神会所
anization’s systems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se
上海千花网curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opportu
nities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.上海千花网女神会所
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect d
ata but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
上海千花网女神会所In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial int
elligence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 mil上海千花网女神会所
lion for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.
“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their b
usinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.

Ecolab Inc, a United States-based global leader in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services上海千花坊
, will invest more on innovation in China and get focused on three of its core businesses, its top management said.
上海千花坊女神会所”A big area of focus for us more recently has been digital innovation,” said Jill Wyant, executive vice-president of regions, Ecolab. She is also the president of
the company’s global healthcare unit. “We have a corporate relationship with Microsoft in terms of some of their cloud com
puting platforms and solutions. We’re in the process of extending that relationship in china. We’ve hired a chief d上海千花坊
igital officer and hired someone to help us look after digital infrastructure and architecture.”
Ecolab made a multimillion-dollar investment in innovation in China. The co
上海千花坊女神会所mpany built a research and development center in Shanghai around a decade ago.
“We want more than double our business in China in the medium term,” said Wyant. “Our expectations are high for so
me reasons. One of which is the emerging middle class, so there are more opportunities for food safety.”
Ecolab, a $15 billion company in a $125 billion market, has a market share of around 11-12 percent globally.
“We see enormous opportunities here in China along with the underlying economic a
nd societal trends, such as the emerging of the middle class, water scarcity issues and the aging population, an
d our business is in line with the government’s commitment toward a more healthy and beautiful China. The ma
rket is huge and we are a good fit and well-placed to grasp the opportunities here,” said Wyant.
According to her, the company has to focus to succeed in China.
“It’s a massive country. It’s rife with opportunities, and it’s got a very aggressive and vibrant customer set, but als
o a competitive set. That’s why we say we really focus on three big opportunity areas where we think we bring a
dvantages that match China’s economic opportunities and its vision for society,” she added.

Beijing will push forward its waste sorting legislation soon, and the newly revised regul上海千花坊品茶微信

A municipal regulation in Shanghai covering domestic waste management had taken effect on Monday and required every household and institution to sort上海千花坊
their trash into four categories: recyclable waste, hazardous waste, household food waste and residual waste.
Sun Xinjun, director of Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Management, said Beijing will follow suit soon without giving a possible date.
“If the garbage is not sorted, the resident may face a fine of up to 200 yuan ($30),” he said上海千花坊品茶微信

Different from the four categories of separating trash in Shanghai, Beijing will use four other garbage classification sta
上海千花坊品茶微信dards: recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste, according to Sun.
Some departments and public institutions in the capital hav
