Meng also said that a new version of the nationally unified negative list for market access will be rolled out w
ithin the year. Illegal or implicit entry barriers and locally issued negative lists will be canceled, she said.
The Chinese authorities will also establish and refine mechanisms for adjusting the annually released
list when necessary, she said, adding that the list will better cope with the reforms to delegate power, streamline ad
ministration and optimize government services, and will better meet the needs of market entities for broader access.
Wang Yuanhong, deputy head of the Department of Economic Forecas
ting at the State Information Center, said the fast growth of high-tech industries and the
service sector reflects the ongoing upgrading of traditional industries and the optimization of C
ons in February for the clinical application of new biomedical technolog
ies, stipulating that clinical research that involves human trials, including gene editing, stem cells, organ tra
nsplants between species and assisted reproductive technologies, must secure the approval of the commission in advance.
Under the draft, which is yet to be adopted, violators may face
punishments including fines, revocation of business permits or criminal charges.
The commission this year will complete its revision of an existing r
egulation on ethical inspection of human-related biomedical research that was adopted in 2016.
Authorities are also considering establishing a national ethics
committee that supervises life science technologies and researchers to ensure compliance wit
h ethical standards, Huang Jiefu, former vice-minister of health, told China Daily in an earlier interview.
The service sector, IT and media industries have

“A certain level of Mandarin proficiency is an advantage,” said Yang Jiayin, project manager of the research center. “The be

This in turn explains, at least in part, why Chinese engineers have been faring better than Chinese scientists. A certain proport

Having finished the book on quantum physics, I made a thorough check of my daughter’s little
bookshelf and divided her books into a few different categories. The topics of the books ranged from dinosa
urs to animal tongues, then to everyday wisdom, yet they all had one thing in common: They were interesting.
Besides the Baby Loves Quantum Physics book, there were books l
ike How Dinosaurs Lived and Why Dogs Are Your Friends. These cartoon books tell stories just
like animations, with the only difference being is that they’re printed on paper, not viewed on an LED display.
