Although it might be the US suppliers of Huawei that care more about the outcome than the Chinese telecommu上海千花坊

Huawei is confident that no power can hold back the pace with which the world wil上海千花坊女神会所

itional 150 Afghan children with congenital heart disease will be selected after screening in Ka 上海千花网品茶微信

bul and then sent to hospitals in China for treatment, said Liu Xuanguo, vice-president of the CRCF.

In addition to Afghanistan, the foundation has provided h 上海千花网

umanitarian assistance to 26 countries in Asia and Africa in recent years. Among the pro

 上海千花网jects, it has established emergency centers in Pakistan, provided free diagnosis and treatment to children with co

ngenital heart disease in Afghanistan and Mongolia, built a blood dialysis center in B

angladesh, constructed mobile hospitals for Syria and Iraq and donated rescue vehicles in Cambodia and Laos, he said. 上海千花网

“Most of the programs have been carried out since 2017, follow

ing the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative (in 2013),”

Liu said. “Humanitarian assistance is badly needed in many countries involved in the 上海千花网品茶微信

initiative. Although much smaller in scale compared with international assistance delivered by the Chinese gov

ernment, China Red Cross humanitarian assistance has played a very important role in promoting frie

 上海千花网ndship between China and these countries, and emotional connectivity between different peoples.”

For example, a foundation project that has provided free treatment in Chinese hospitals over the past two years to 100 Mo

ngolian children under age 14 with congenital heart disease has won high praise from the Mongolian government a 上海千花网

nd was recognized as one of the best humanitarian assistance projects in the country last year, Liu said.

In June, another Chinese medical team arrived in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, to screen around 100 of the m

the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and in Wuxi, Jiangsu province.

In neighboring Pakistan, an emergency center established by the foundation in Gwadar in 上海千花网

cooperation with the Pakistani Red Crescent Society has also won the praise of locals, Liu said.

As of the end of April, three medical assistance teams sent by the Red 上海千花网品茶微信

‘s agricultural sector was plagued by inefficient production practices for上海会所品茶微信

many years, while annual output was highly susceptible to changes in climate.

For example, from 1959 to 1961 large parts of the country experienced a severe drought.上海会所

In 1961, the arid conditions reduced the total crop yield by 61 million metric tons, a 30 percent fall from 1958.

Since the early 1980s, the central leadership has attached great significan

上海会所ce to agricultural innovation. In 2015, investment in scientific and technological research reached 55 billion yu

an ($7.8 billion at today’s rates), compared with 720 million yuan in 1978, Du said.

According to the ministry, more than 96 percent of fields dedicated to the cultivation上海会所品茶微信

of major crops, including rice, corn and wheat, are sown with high-yield, resilient species.

上海会所A number of crop-breeding platforms that employ scientifically proven approaches-such as the use of “dwarf-st

erile” wheat, the “super rice” system and hybrid corn breeding-have been established to fast-t

rack improvements in edible crops and ensure the food supply is reliable and safe in the long term.

The wide application of modern farming techniques ha上海会所品茶微信

s also helped farmers to raise yields and reduce damage to the environment.

At present, environmentally friendly methods are used to prevent and control pests on 56.7 mill

ion hectares under cultivation, accounting for 15 percent of the total area affected by such pests.

上海会所Meanwhile, smarter use of pesticides in demonstra

tion areas has reduced the use of chemicals by 20 to 30 percent, the ministry said.

The use of fertilizers has been further contained as a result of a nationwide campaign l上海会所品茶微信

and improve awareness of the scientific management of fertilizers among farmers.
