nd the winter sports industry in China? And what

Winter sports are relatively new to China and not played by

many Chinese people. In recent years, the Chinese winter sports team particip

ated in some individual events in the 2016 World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Seoul and

the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, the Republic of Korea, and won some medals, including gold medals.

The development of winter sports in China suffers from reg

ional imbalance, with people in the northeastern region being

the most avid fans and practitioners of winter sports.

But after winning the bid to host the 2022 Winter Games, especially s

ince the issuing of a guideline that aims to prompt 300 million people to play winter sports by 20

22, the development of winter sports and the winter sports industry has gathered pace in China.

The international community has hailed President Xi Jinping’s call on Friday to ease mar

ket access for foreign capital and increase imports so that opening-up reaches a higher level.

Xi said in his keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the

Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing that the purpose of bu

ilding the Belt and Road is to achieve win-win cooperation and common development.

China will increase its imports of goods and services and will further lower its tariff rates, Xi said.

Francis Chua, chairman emeritus of the Philippine Chamber of Comm

erce and Industry, noted Xi’s emphasis on quality imports and state-of-the-art products.

In overseas ventures, insurance gives firms a sure footing

Overseas investment inevitably means risks and uncertainties for Chinese comp

anies, but many have started using insurance services to help control and reduce risks.

“Chinese companies face new situations while investing overseas, namely that global politi

cs and economics have become more complex,” said Wang Tingke, general manager of China Export and Cr

edit Insurance Corporation, or Sinosure, China’s State-funded policy-oriented insurance company.

“So while going abroad, Chinese companies need to i

ncrease their awareness of risks and set up comprehensive risk management systems.”

Sinosure, established in 2001, said that it has suppor

rted Chinese companies export or invest in countries and regions involved

in the Belt and Road Initiative to a total of value $724 billion by the end of March, since 2013.

It has set up more than 2,300 insurance policies for projects that Chinese companies are carrying out in countries involve

d in the Belt and Road Initiative, and has paid a total of $2.8 billion in insurance claims to Chinese companies.

The Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by China in 2013, aims to build stronger links among countries across the globe.

Guan Wenfeng, assistant general manager of Sinosure Fujian bra

nch in Fujian province, said that about 10 years ago he needed to keep telling companies tha

t have international business or want to invest overseas what policy-oriented insurance products are. But gradually m

ore companies started contacting Sinosure to find out about insurance services for investing overseas.

sport access. It also eases demographic pressures on Maputo, a city with a population of 1.7 million.

The drinking water source enforcement app integra

tes satellite remote sensing images, water environment problems spotted by satellite, water protection zone bound

ary’s spatial data, water environment problems found by provinces and cities themselves and law enfo

rcement data at the scene, and sends environmental problem lists to law enforcers at the scene to guide their work.

The app was used during the nationwide inspection on water sources i

n 2018 and the law enforcement during water sources inspection at county level this year.

Meng Zhiqi, a law enforcer with the water ecology and environment department of Shang

hai bureau of ecology and environment, has witnessed the app’s ability. “We received

a message from a work team of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, saying there was an illegal shrimp farming house with a chimney deep

inside a water resource conservation forest, but my colleagues and I didn’t know how to get there. Later, we fo

llowed the map provided by the app and demolished the house within 24 hours,” said Meng.
