Xi noted that China and Brazil are the biggest developing

 countries in the Eastern and Western hemispheres, and both are imp

ortant emerging markets. The two countries have a common wish and great potential for d

evelopment, he said, adding that both countries are important forces for promoting a multilateral world.

Since the establishment of diplomatic ties 45 years

ago, relations between China and Brazil have achieved fruitful outcomes, Xi said.

The president said it is a critical period for the two countries, and they

should forge ahead, and each side should deem the other as a partner for development.

Xi called on the two countries to respect, trust and support each other in making the China-Brazil relationship a model for d

eveloping countries’ cooperation and an important force in promoting world peace and progress.

While eating alone is hardly a novel experience in many

“Chinese culture is family-based. Everyone wants to have a group of people eating toget

her, so eating is more of a collective behavior. People either eat with family members at home or with colle

agues and clients at work,” said Cai Yani, who has directed a series of short videos about solo dining.

Eating together is considered crucial for family bonding. On a typical Chinese dining table, one rarely finds dishes for indi

viduals; instead, there is usually a range of dishes-meat, fish, vegetables and soup-for everyone to share.

Restaurants usually boast round tables with a rotatable surface, known as a “lazy Susan” in the West, to make sharing easier.

The move away from the traditional sharing approach is largely due to a demo

graphic shift in the country, especially a sharp rise in the number of unmarried people. Statistics from the Mi

nistry of Civil Affairs show that more than 200 million people were living on their own in 2017.

The ministry made the remarks after the United States gover

nment late last week ordered its tech companies to cut ties with China’s

Huawei and put a number of Chinese comp

anies on an export blacklist , which makes it almost impossible for listed companies to purchase US-made goods.

Gao Feng, ministry spokesman, said China will

provide consumers in various countries with quality, reliable and diverse products.

The Chinese government is confident it will protect the legitimate

rights and interests of Chinese companies, he said Thursday at a news conference.

The misuse of the state power by the US to suppress Chinese companies not only seriously undermines the commercial cooper

ation between companies on both sides, but poses a serious threat to the safety of the global industrial chain, he said.

he familiar discrediting of China’s policy toward the

 Uygurs in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

Which in itself is a worrying development since it may be the start of the US using the domestic affa

irs of other countries as a pretext to stifle the growth of foreign competitors to US companies.

Washington, of course, is trying to put the US on the high moral ground while embedding

its trade frictions with other countries into its political agenda and using its economic policy for its foreign policy aims.

In this way, it is hoping to achieve the colonization of the global

business world, allegedly under the banners of human rights, freedom and democracy.

If Washington really cared about the human rights situation in X

injiang, it would by no means ignore the development of the region. Over the past four

decades, the regions’ economy has increased more than 250 times, and the well-being of the Uygur people h

pment team and deputy chief engineer of CRRC Qingdao Sifang, said the

testing prototype can check and optimize the key technologies and core system comp

onents of the high-speed maglev system and lay a technological basis for the forthcoming engineering prototype.

The engineering prototype is planned to roll off the production line in

2020 and go through comprehensive tests to conclude integrated verification in 2021.

The high-speed maglev transportation system is one of the key projects under the Mi

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Thursda

that enterprises in any country will not disregard their own interests and blindly follow other countries’ “political command”.

“Most countries have always been highly alert to US government acts of

resorting to state power to crack down on companies in other countries, disrupt m

arkets and obstruct mutually beneficial cooperation between other countries,” Lu said.

But the positive development is also accompanied by some concerns. A string of Japanese

carriers, including NTT Docomo, said they were also considering delaying the launch of Huawei’s new sma

rtphones. Their hesitance is due to uncertainty about Google’s previous announcement that it would restrict H

uawei’s access to updates of the Android operating system in compliance with a US ban.
