attracting talents and capital. This in turn prompts the autho

rities to introduce more favorable policies and regulations for the enterprises bas

ed in the US, which is essentially a combination of representative democracy and market econ

omy. Under such circumstances, how can the US promote sustainable reindustrialization?

Besides, reindustrialization is not possible without rebuilding or strengthen

ing infrastructure facilities. And although the US leader has been claiming to implement a trillion-dollar infrastructure

plan-and even made it one of the pillars of his “Make America Great Again” campaign-not much has come of it.

Another major problem is that the return on equity in the infrastructure sector is a mere 3 percent w

hile that in the US capital market is about 12 percent. So how can the US attract more private cap

ital to the infrastructure sector without guaranteeing a return on equity equal to that in the capital market?

ities for UK and China businesses transitioning from investment and infras

tructure into an operating phase where British service providers can really benefit.

One reason for publishing the article on Nature was to sho

show the resolve of the government and ethics scholars in China to improve ethical compliance in the sciences, Zhai said.

In the commentary, the four scholars said the government should release clearer rules and regulations on the use of tech

nologies and hand down sharper punishments to offenders, including disqualifying them from scientific research.

“Self-regulation of scientists is unlikely to be enough, given their potential conflicts of i

nterest under market pressures. Thus, top-down regulation is crucial,” they said.

The scholars suggested that authorities such as the National Health Commission should

monitor all gene-editing centers and IVF clinics in China to ensure trials are in line with regulations.

Both the Zhaos and the Guos have issued statements through

their lawyers, saying they were not aware of Singer’s aims.

The Guos’ attorney, James Spertus, said Singer preyed on Chinese families who were not familiar with

the US education system, and he charged them sums far higher than those he received from his domestic clients.

In China, college admission is based largely on scores attained in the gaokao, the nati

onal college entrance examination, rather than a process involving essays, extracurricular activities and other factors.

Chinese students planning to apply for US colleges usually struggle with the persona

l essay, a critical part of the application process, because the US essay style is hugely different from the Chinese style.

Elizabeth Venturini, owner of Los Angeles admissions consultancy

College Career Results, said: “Unscrupulous college consultants know international stu

dents pay the full tuition price. If they can afford full tuition, they can afford their services.

“To command their high prices, they might promise a wealthy family that their child will

get into a top school by writing their essays, filling out their application, or through other unethical activities.”

The Asian carp dominates the biomass, creating pro

lems for commercial and recreational fishing, boating and water skiing. It deters a

lot of new business owners when they talk to us about opening in Kentucky,” Brooks said.

In some waterways, carp are so abundant that they jump out of the water into boats, sometim

es hitting boaters and creating a nuisance. The massive schools of the fish are also hazardous to water skiers

on popular lakes. Commercial fishermen in pursuit of other types of fish have to try hard not to catch them.

Asian carp are having a $7 billion negative effect on various businesses in the US.

But He Lining, development manager at Two Rivers F

isheries, said the fish are not a problem, but an opportunity.

According to He, who is writing a book about the species, the fish was introduced to the US

by scientists in the late 1960s and early ’70s as an easy and cheap way to treat domestic waste.

But horticulture is facing a crisis, says Cheng, as, accor

rding to her, the average age of various professionals in gardens and sce

nic spots is 45 and positions like groundskeepers and display workers are often left open.

Also, the demand for horticulture professionals is growing as the market has boomed in the past 10 years.

So, as plant growers reach retirement age, there are too few gardeners ar

riving to replace them, says Zhao Shiwei, the chief engineer of the Beijing Institute of La

ndscape Architecture, the only municipal public welfare landscape research institute in Beijing.

“There’s an obvious gap in plant cultivation and maintenance talent in recent years, especially those who have an ove

rall understanding of horticulture landscape designs and garden flower cultivation,” he says.

Zhao also says that horticulture involves a wide range of fields, and a long period is needed to train professionals.

“More importantly, the work is relatively tedious for young professionals. Nowadays fewer young people are keen on th

e horticulture industry, and we are concerned that the industry is facing difficulty to attract and retain talent,” he adds.

As for front-line gardeners, many of them are known as “city farmers” as they need to weed and mulch for the plants.

Thanks to Chengdu’s geographical advantages with

regard to the Belt and Road Initiative, local companies have linked to global markets more frequently. Companies that

used to lack the confidence to go global began taking the step. Companies that have had export business for years upg

raded their product structure and expanded their business to production capacity cooperation and technological export.

Chengdu Xinzhu Road and Bridge Machinery is a prime ex

ample. The company was founded as an infrastructure company, and its business has exp

anded to include new energy and railway traffic. In September 2018, the company’s production base at the China-Bela

facturer to begin operation in the park. Before that, the company mainly exported parts used in roads and bridges’ construction.
