nt history, the relocation of some manufacturing industries from
上海龙凤1314China to overseas destinations is inevitable given the extent of China’s development. On the other h
and, this phenomenon does not mean China will lose its manufacturing and economic power.上海龙凤1314品茶微信
During the previous five industrial migrations, the economic development of the leading countries that hosted such industries didn’t stop after
some of the traditional sectors relocated to other countries. Instead, they soon saw the rise of new industries, high-end m上海龙凤1314
anufacturing and the service sector－and they are still developed economies. For example, the US is still the world’s larg
上海龙凤1314品茶微信est economy even 60 years after the third industrial migration, while Japan, Germany and Britain are ranked among the
top seven economies in terms of size and quality even decades after the industrial migration.上海龙凤1314
Relocation speed and scope not alarming
As a country with the world’s largest population, the third-largest territory, and the longest continuous上海龙凤1314
economic growth curve, China’s case will be the same even after the relocation of some of its manufacturing industries.
First, as mentioned above, the speed and scope of the manufacturing units’ relocation from China are not as fast and large as s
上海龙凤1314品茶微信ome people imagine. The industrial relocation from China started after the 2008 global financial crisis br
oke out, accelerated in 2012, and gained pace last year due to the Sino-US trade conflicts.
But the consequences are not expected to be very serious. For instance, from 2008 to 2018, global trade grew at an annual aver
age rate of 2.4 percent, while China saw 6.3 percent annual average export growth, which shows China’s export g上海龙凤1314品茶微信
rowth has been not only steady, but also 3.9 percentage points higher than that of global trade.
As a result, the share of China’s exports in global exports rose from 8.9
percent in 2008 to 12.9 percent in 2018, an increase of 4 percentage points. Which is a clear indica上海龙凤1314
tion that the relocation of manufacturing industries from China is not fast enough to make us feel worried.
Second, the rapid rise of emerging manufacturing industries in China will to a large extent offset t上海龙凤1314
he impact of the relocation of low-end industries on its entire manufacturing industry and e上海龙凤1314品茶微信
conomy. Therefore, China will continue to be a manufacturing and economic powerhouse.

A new natural gas network in the Xinjiang Uygur auton上海后花园品茶微信

“I used to go to the gas station to change the fuel tank when it was empty, which used to take 10 minutes of riding an electric sco上海后花园品茶微信

“Using natural gas costs less than 20 yuan ($2.90) every month for cooking,” Hazret added.上海后花园
Such convenience in Hazret’s life is due to a natural gas p

Doctors in Hubei province have successfully transplanted kidneys
from a prematurely born donor baby into a 47-year-old woman suffering from kidney failure.娱乐地图女神会所
The donor weighed only 1.3 kilograms, the lightest kidney donor ever reported, Wuhan Union Hospital said on Wednesday.
娱乐地图The woman, surnamed Wang, from Duchang county, Jiangxi province, was diagnos
ed with uremia in June last year and transplant surgery performed a month later.
Without the transplant, she would have had to rely on blood dialysis for the rest of her life.娱乐地图女神会所
The kidneys used in the surgery were from a baby born prematurely
娱乐地图, whose parents decided to donate the organs after the infant died, the hospital said.
Following a year of follow-up treatment, the baby’s kidneys, which were between 3 and 4 centimeters long when tran娱乐地图
splanted, have grown to 6.9 cm and 7.6 cm in the patient’s body, closer to the usual size of 10 cm for an adult.
娱乐地图女神会所The two kidneys are functioning normally and Wang’s health has recovered, the hospital said.
Transplant surgeries using kidneys donated by infants are
very difficult compared with kidneys donated by adults. Generally, infants that weigh less th娱乐地图
an 5 kg are not considered as sources of organs for transplant surgeries abroad, the hospital said.
娱乐地图女神会所Wang Zhendi, a transplant surgeon in the hospital and the woman’s do
ctor, said the blood vessels and ureter, a tube that carries urine from the kidney to the ur
inary bladder, are very thin in infants’ kidneys. This makes precise surgery very difficult, with higher chances of post-surgery complications. It is also more di
fficult for such kidneys to function in an adult’s body as they are not fully developed.娱乐地图
“The less the weight of the donor, the slower the kidney recovers functioning in the body where it is transplanted,” he said.
Although an adult can survive with just one kidney, usually two ki娱乐地图女神会所
dneys are transplanted from an infant to improve the chances of a healthy outcome, he said.
The success of the surgery means sources for kidney transplant surgeries can be expanded to inclu娱乐地图
de infant donors. This will ease the gap between the number of organs donated and the number of patie
娱乐地图女神会所nts with terminal kidney disease waiting for transplant surgery in China, the hospital said.
In Wuhan Union Hospital alone, more than 500 registered patients wit
h kidney failure are waiting for suitable organs for transplantation, the hospital said.
