I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chin

inese-imposed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in ou

r aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposing 25 percent tariffs

on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with t

ariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June 1.

“Because of the tariff discussion going on in Washi

ngton DC, a lot of the farm community is being hurt,” said Bob Holde

n, former Missouri governor who co-founded the United States Heartland China Association.

Another example of localization was that Haier red

esigned the ratio of deep-freezer and normal cooling area inside refrigera

tors as Indians do not require much of deep-freezing capacity, according to Braganza.

As part of a strategy to associate itself with different strata of the Indian society, Haier began the “Laundry Service” conc

ept to cater to the need of washing clothes at Delhi University’s Indraprastha College for Women. Ar

ound 500 female students can wash their clothes at the washing machines installed with the help of the Haier Wash App.

The washing-machine users can reserve, schedule, monitor and pay for the services with their phones

. This provides an end-to-end digitally managed washing experience. Each washing machine is conn

ected to the cloud and can be individually managed from the application.

Even though there are amazing innovations nearly ever

y day in the way 3D printers are used in key industries, including automotive, aerospace and

medical, we believe that we’re still just scratching the surface of the potential for 3D printing as an enabl

er of digital transformation,” said Tim Greene, research director at consultancy IDC.

Industry experts, however, have noticed a gradual paradigm shift. Acco

rding to Agam, the sector is on the cusp of a transformation from prototyping and desig

n to real-life manufacturing and end-user engagement. This year could herald such changes.

Conglomerates are leading the pack, with GE celebrating the 30,000th additively-manufac

tured fuel nozzle tip on a 3D printing device at its aviation plant in the US a couple of months ago.Under the addit

ive manufacturing method, the number of parts in a single fuel nozzle tip was reduced from about 20 pieces previo

usly welded together to one whole piece. The nozzle tip’s weight was cut by about 25 percent.

Monday was the deadliest day for emergency worker

rs in China since the Ministry of Emergency Management was formed last year.

Chinese scientists have discovered a possible “death switch” mechanism in plant’s immunity system t

hat triggers infected cells to self-destruct, thus limiting the spread of the disease and keeping other parts of the plant healthy.

Scientists said the discovery provides clues to cell death control and im

munity for plants, and they hope further research can lead to a new generation of disease-

resistant crops that use significantly less pesticide and are more environmentally friendly.

rector of the ministry’s political department, said at the Xichang ceremony that the 27 firefighters have been offi

cially recognized as martyrs and were awarded first-class merit citations by the ministry and the Sichuan provi

ncial government. Eleven of the firefighters were also approved as members of the Communist Party of China.

Sichuan Vice-Governor Peng Yu­xing said the other three victims were also officially recognized as martyrs.

Huang Ming, Party secretary of the ministry, said that over the past 70 years, 719 firefighters have

sacrificed their lives to protect public safety. The ministry will strengthen the regularization, specia

lization and professionalization of the China’s firefighters and enhance their emergency management capabilities.

China’s Belt and Road policy seeks to integrate smart

ecological infrastructure among developing countries to facilitate

trade, investment and communications while achieving the United Nations Sustainable Develop

ment Goals of reducing poverty and protecting the environment. China’s policy of the “ecological civilization” prio

ritizes environmental protection through technology application to enhance green energy and the deve

lopment of ecological cities. Protection of the oceans and water systems is a priority of the “ecological civilization”.

The Belt and Road follows the historical Silk Road and includes the historical Maritime Silk Road. This cove

rs a vast oceanography involving many sea-lanes for transport and many island areas. Some island archipelagos and many coas

tlines are threatened by rising ocean levels. To prevent a migration crisis, it will be necessary to support increasing popula

tions on the island states and coastlines that will be lost to rising seas. This will require new, technologically smart

and environmentally sound infrastructure. The floating city concept hopes to address this need.

On March 13, CNBC reported that Malta, an island nation i

the Mediterranean that is also a EU member state, has indicated it, too, could join the BRI. The news channel quoted Maltes

e Finance Minister Edward Scicluna as saying that “certain prejudices” should not come in the way of good business.

I am not sure if Marquis, or his boss, US National Security Advisor John Bolton, plan to lecture, warn or th

reaten Malta as they have been doing to Italy these past days. But instead of indulging in such rea

ctionary activities, the US should abandon its Cold War mentality and stop looking for non-existent enemies.

More important, the US should also stop forcing other countries to ch

oose between China and the US, especially as many countries made it clear they do not wan

t to be lectured on what they should do when the Obama administration launched the “pivot to Asia strategy”.

The world needs more infrastructure-building projects such as the BRI, not mo

ves to sabotage such projects, as the US has been trying to do for quite some time now.
