Chris Rowley, a visiting professor from Oxford Uni

University’s Kellogg College in England, called openin

g to more foreign investment a very important development.

“Of course this will expose both inward investors and indigenous organ

izations to some stark differences in management and doing business between them, which in tu

rn requires more globally effective leaders who are les

s ethnocentric and more culturally aware,” he said.

Sikhumbuzo Zondi, a research assistant at th

e Institute for Global Dialogue associated with

the University of South Africa, said another important aspect of Xi’s

opening address was the desire to invest more resources in scientific innovation and technology.

The zone is located in a labor-intensive area in Cambodi

 which means the project will provide a large number of jobs to lo

cal communities,” he said. “It is expected that up to 100,000 to 200,000 locals will be d

rawn to the new economic zone after its completion. They will rise out of poverty by working in this zone.”

The project will be beneficial to both China and Cambodia, Qian said.

“Many Chinese companies go overseas to expand their businesses. However, because of a la

ck of experience and related knowledge, most of them face huge obstacles abroad,” he said. “Our company has done overseas business for mo

re than 40 years and will provide a familiar business environment for other Chinese companies in the new economic zone.”

Some Chinese companies have decided to join the investment in the ne

w Cambodia project, Qian said, adding that in his opinion, a company should follow the nati

onal policy and direction such as Belt and Road Initiative while being profitable at the same time.

There is some merit to raising capital,” said Chief Exec

cutive Elon Musk on a call discussing the results. “It’s probably about the right time.”

He also said he would prefer Tesla to be private but “that ship has sailed.”

The company which is ramping up production of its Model 3 electric sedan, the vehicle Tesla sees as the key to future succ

ess, stood by its 2019 delivery forecast of 360,000 to 400,000 vehicles and said it may produce as many as 50

0,000 vehicles if its factory in Shanghai reaches volume production in the fourth quarter.

Tesla said it would make a loss in its second quarter but predicted a return to profit in the third.

Musk said that global deliveries were “the most difficult logistics problem” he had ever seen.

nce for the second quarter “bleak”. “I continue to see a very volatile 2019 for Tesla and its shares,” Anwar said.

The 29-clause plan sets six key tasks, including control

 of overall water consumption, reducing agricultural, industrial and urban use and technological innovation. In the meantime, two measu

China has a water shortage, the commission said on its website

. Each year, the country faces a shortfall of 50 billion cu m of fresh water. In the mea

ntime, public awareness of conserving water and preventing waste has to be improved.

In 2017, water consumption per $10,000 in GDP was 500 cu m, 66.6 perce

Restoring a feature-length film by hand can easily tak

e months, if not up to half a year. Hong Kong film director Peter Ho-sun Chan once said the image restoration of his most a

cclaimed work Comrades: Almost a Love Story cost 1.5 million yuan ($224,000), excluding the expenses for restoring the soundtrack.

Faced with hundreds old TV series to restore, Youku was naturally reluctant to throw such a huge sum of money at every project. Their

technicians then turned to artificial intelligence to develop programs that could automatically enhance the tapes.

“If a lengthy manual frame-by-frame restoration might be able to achieve a full score of 10, at least we could turn an ‘unw

atchable’ series into one that achieves a score of 7 to 8 points within a shorter period of time using mass digital techn

iques,” says Jiang Wenfei, a leading technician and head of Youku’s 30-member restoration team.

He estimates that a single episode takes one working day to restore using traditional methods.

Pei explains that correcting the color cast is the most common problem they have to fix. “People’

s faces sometimes look like they are covered by dirt (on film), and their black hair turns green or blue.”

igned to be responsible for handling not only local IPR ca

In 2014, the supreme court released a guideline to introduce tech

ed by the local court in Hefei last year said it would recruit both full-time and part-time technical investigators.

More full-time technical investigators are expected to be recruited for IPR cases in the future, researcher Li said.
