uld provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.

NPC reviews Securities Law amendmentdamental law governin

Country may soon adopt revision to pave way for capital market reform

The top legislature deliberated on the draft revision of the Securities Law over the weeke

nd, signaling China may soon adopt the revision to pave the way for key capital market reforms, experts said.

On Saturday, the draft revision was submitted to a bimonthly s

ession of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress for a third reading, Xinh

ua News Agency reported. The session began on Saturday and continues through Tuesday.

Revision of the fundamental law governing the capital market h

as lasted for six years, with 2015 and 2017 having seen readings of two draft versions.

“The latest draft version is of great importance because it will provide legal grounds for the registration-based initial pub

lic offering system-a key reform that China’s capital market has been awaiting for years,” said Dong Dengxin, director of th

e Finance and Securities Institute at Wuhan University of Science and Technology.

Flight systems, however, typically are built with a

 backup system so there can be no single point of failure. Since the crashes of Max jets in Indonesi

a in October and Ethiopia last month, Boeing has modified design of the anti-stall device to include two sensors on all aircraft.

The FAA allows airlines to make minor modifications in previously certified

aircraft to meet their operational needs, a rule Boeing followed in building the 737 Max for

foreign carriers. Ethiopian Airlines and Indonesia’s Lion Air — involved in fatal crashes five months apart — repo

rtedly declined to buy two add-on safety devices that might have helped the pilots keep the doomed planes in the sky.

Neither airline purchased the “angle of attack” system display for readi

ngs of two sensors rather than one and a “disagree light” to be activated if the sensors prod

uce conflicting readings. The Lion Air crash in October killed 189 passengers and crew.

Airlines around the world, including China and the US, have flown the 737 Max, introduced in 2018, without incident.

Rice project benefits nations in Asia, Africa

Chinese scientist says resilient varieties boost harvests, minimize use of fertilizers

A decadelong agricultural project spearheaded by Chinese scientists has helped alleviate poverty for more than 1.6 million f

arming households in 18 Asian and African countries through cultivation of high-yield and resilient rice strains.

The Green Super Rice project, led by the Chinese Academy of Agric

ultural Sciences, has generated 78 rice varieties that boast an average 20 percent increase in har

vest per hectare while minimizing the use of fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation, said Li Zhikang, a professor and

researcher of rice breeding at the academy and a leading member of the project, on Tuesday.

The total area planted with the varieties in participating countries h

ad expanded to 6.12 million hectares by the end of last year, including around 3.4 million hect

ares in the Philippines, 1.3 million hectares in India and 1.1 million hectares in Vietnam, he said.

The Belt and Road Initiative is set to promote cooper

globally — not for China only, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank President Jin Liqun said on Wednesday.

Jin made the remarks in response to questions over whether the BRI only involves C

hinese projects prior to the Boao Forum for Asia, which will officially begin on Thursday.

“It was a misunderstanding,” Jin said, adding any country or investor can do a BRI project

anywhere, so long as it promotes global and regional economic cooperation, peace and development.

“The so called ‘China strategy’ is simply to promote global cooperation,” he added.

Joint efforts essential to fight global warming: China Daily editorial

Record low temperatures in winter and record high temperatures in summer in many parts of the

world year after year and more frequent natural disasters caused by extreme weather events prov

ide strong evidence that global warming is not just an alarmist theory as some claim.

Yet striking a balance between the effective control of human activities that are contr

ibuting to climate change and economic growth is proving a hard nut for countries to crack.
