Tourist safety behind cro上海楼凤moveview of Taipei

Given the current climate of cross-Straits relations, the Chinese mainla

上海楼凤nd suspended issuing individual travel permits for Taiwan on Thursday. What do

es the move suggest? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Yao Yuxin. Excerpts follow:

上海楼凤女神会所DPP should stop splittist activities

Taiwan witnessed rapid growth in tourist arrivals from the mai

nland in the eight years before Tsai Ing-wen became the island leader in 2016.

Individual travel to Taiwan was first permitted for residents of Beijin

上海楼凤女神会所g, Shanghai and Xiamen, Fujian province, in 2011 when cross-Straits relations were goo

d thanks partly to Ma Ying-jeou being the Taiwan leader. The arrangement was extended to 47 mainland cities over the fol

上海楼凤lowing three years. As a result, mainland tourist arrivals in Taiwan peaked at more than 4 million in 2015.

But tourist arrivals began dropping after Tsai took office, because she and her Democratic Progressive Party refused to rec

ognize the 1992 Consensus that there is only one China, which soured cross-Straits relations.上海楼凤女神会所

Mainland visitors-a large number of whom are individual travelers-account for ab

out a quarter of Taiwan’s total tourist arrivals, so the new curbs could rattle the island’s tourism industry and上海楼凤

hurt the broader economy. If the situation continues to worsen, the system for mai

上海楼凤nland tourists to apply for group travel to the island might also be affected in the foreseeable future.

But ignoring the mainland’s huge contribution to the island’s tou

rism sector prosperity and economic growth, Tsai and the DPP have more brazenly p上海楼凤女神会所

ushed forward their “Taiwan independence” agenda without thinking that, by fur

上海楼凤ther straining cross-Straits relations, they are compromising the well-being of Taiwan compatriots.

Besides, without any evidence to prove their outrageous claim, Tsai

and her fellow DPP leaders accused the mainland of sending spies and interferi上海楼凤女神会所

ng in the local elections last year, which put the safety of mainland individual travelers at risk.

“It was quite an interesting experience when I played, with my pipa at Carnegie Hall, the tunes of Shaanxi opera (Qinqiang) and of上海楼凤女神会所

Taipingyuan Station o Station in position in the devel

4With the surge of 5G, Chengdu is in the leading position in the development of 5G cities in China. On January 5, Sichuan Mobile officially

announced that the first 5G metro station in China was officially opened in Chengdu after the

opening of the first 5G demonstration block in Chengdu Ocean Taiguri at the end of 2018.

In Taipingyuan Station of Metro Line 10, the high-speed WIFI signal transformed from Sichuan Mobile 5G network has quietly covered the

It is understood that the 5G base station opened by Sichuan Mobile in Taipingyuan Metro Station is the first domestic 5G digital indoor distribution system network based

on 2.6GHz band. Simply put, the previous 5G base stations are mainly located outdoors to broaden the breadth of 5G network, while the indoor distribution system is used to solve the problem of deep coverage of 5G

network. The goal is to make 5G network signal cover every corner of the indoor. The 5G indoor distribution system began to lay out, marking the

5G whole scene continuous coverage will soon become a reality. In the future, whether from indoor to outdoor, or from outdoor to indoor, 5G network can seamlessly connect,

which will also bring infinite possibilities for the digitization of indoor scenes, and will also help the development of the new economy in the future.

demonstration cities of China Mobile, Sichuan Mobile has continuously strengthened its network construction and business test, laid a solid foundation for the trial commercial use

of 5G in Chengdu, and contributed to the construction of a strong network country, digital China and a wise society.

It’s important we have both of the visions. One is the visi

on to look into the future amid urban life, and the other is to look back

on rural history – it’s our past,” he says, adding that this contradiction – resisting urban

ization while at the same time embracing progress – has driven the emergence of modern thought and di

scourse, which has become the internal motivation for change in art, literature and philosophy.

Ethnic Tibetan writer A Lai, famous for his novel Settling Dust, which was also published und

er the title Red Poppies, says many of the writers today still depict rural life as they imagine it, rather than ob

serving and reflecting on it by honestly facing the challenges posed by globalization.

“We should be aware that many of the problems facing Chinese farmers and villagers today are universal,” he says.
