上海乌托邦品茶微信tudents enrolled in the global engagement program launched

by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on June 26 will be engaged in tackling typical issues

faced by countries involved in China and the Belt and Road Initiative. According to the statement of the univer上海乌托邦

sity organizers, over 10 countries and regions will be involved in the program that includes 13 projects.

上海乌托邦The projects cover research and surveys on specific themes before com

ing up with solutions to problems related to the environment, medicine and civil engineering.

Ten of the projects will be carried out during the summer, while the remaining thre上海乌托邦品茶微信

e will be held in winter, from December to January next year. Each project will last between two and four weeks.

上海乌托邦More than 200 students are expected to join the program, according to the university.

“Every project is challenging as most of the students have never set foot in these areas,” says Cao Yongk

ang, director of the International Research Center for Architectural Heritage Conservation at the university.上海乌托邦品茶微信

“The program will definitely motivate them to realize their social responsi

bility in the new era and inspire them to solve the common problems of humankind.”上海乌托邦

Cao will lead one of the teams in investigations of villages in Zhejiang province’s Lishui city.

This project will involve setting up furniture and facilities that are

urgently needed by residents. The team will later visit villages in the Italian Alps to explore ne上海乌托邦品茶微信

w development models for locals, and compare the practices for these two countries.

“The project is designed for those majoring in architecture, city planning, sociology, and other上海乌托邦品茶微信

related subjects, and will equip them with a comprehensive understanding of rural revitalization,” says Cao.

No forces should underestimate China’s determination and ability to s

上海乌托邦The Democratic Progressive Party has ignored the safety and wellbeing of

China has sufficient policy tools and new measures to further optimize its fo

“We face a series of challenges in achieving stable foreign trade growth,” said Li K上海乌托邦

He made the comment after customs released the country’s trade dat上海乌托邦

For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-s

上海乌托邦peaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.上海乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances. In addition, as a prelude to the exhibition Writer Picasso, those young participants also created a mega-sized mosaic artwork as a tribute to the Spanish master.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c上海乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
