Some of the settled cases had attracted enormous atten

ention at home and abroad. For example, in handling a dispute between

Chinese and foreign companies, the Beijing Intellectual Property Court conclu

ded a design patent of Chinese automaker Jiangling Motors Group was invalid.

Jaguar Land Rover Automotive said the LandWind X7 SUV manufactured by Jiang

ling subsidiary LandWind was an unauthorized imitation of its Range Rover Evoque.

“Technology-based disputes involving findings of complex tech

One of the measures taken by the supreme court for improving efficie

China makes headway in application and commercializatio

n of 3D printing, paving way for high-quality manufacturing, end-user engagement

From aircraft units, car parts to musical instrum

ents, 3D printing technology is pushing the limits of what can be made out of materials.

While relatively young, this new techniqu

e has established itself as one of the most disruptive technologies in decades.

According to consultancy Statista, the glob

al 3D printing industry’s output value is projected to reach $23 billion by 2022.

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process

of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital profile. It is the opposite of sub

tractive manufacturing that features hollowing out a piece of material with a milling machine.

It’s the mix of all these factors-timing, situation, peop

and deepen, “developing from perhaps the more direct visual aspects like contemporary art to embracing areas that r

equire more investment of time and emotional involvement-books, films, TV, theater, games”.

On March 31, two Chinese People’s Liberation Army Ai

r Force Shenyang J-11 fighter jets flew across the so-called median line of t

he Taiwan Straits, prompting a strong reaction by Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen. She vo

wed a “forceful expulsion” of mainland fighters should they cross the line again.

A former official on the island, Lai Ching-te, said in

a recent interview that the pro-secession Democratic Progres

sive Party, of which Tsai and Lai are members, is protecting Taiwan by pursuing independence.

Responding to both questions, Ma said the flight was part of the PLA’s scheduled exercise this year.

“Protecting national sovereignty and territorial integrity is the sacred duty of the PLA,” he s

aid. “Tsai’s wild talk means she is scared. We warn them not to play with fire. Don’t even think about it.”

As for Lai’s comment, Ma said it was an example of “confusing right and wrong”.

Moreover, BYD said its net profits fell on account of the subsidy cutting a

The opportunity is a fast-closing window for China to make history by being

vision for these cities, pioneered and designed by Marc Collins Chen, former tourism minister of French Polynesia, wa

Floating cities are no longer science fiction — the technology to build human habitation on the ocean exists today,” Collin

The ministry also called for small and medium-sized enterprises to forge alliances for common development to consolidate the fragmented logistics sector.

In recent years, China’s logistics industry has been experiencing consistent growth on the back of steady economic progress and a rising domestic market. Accor

ding to the National Development and Reform Commission, logistics expenditures rose 9.8 percent to 13.3 trillion yuan, am

ounting to 14.8 percent of last year’s national GDP. The share was slightly up from the previous year.

The logistics sector is of strategic importance in the development of the market econom

China ranked 12th last year in the World Bank’s logistics performan

Before he settled in Dali, Yang worked for a bank in Chongqing, his

hometown. After moving, he started a business selling hand-made traditional costumes of the loc

A year after he arrived, Yang opened his small restaurant, which

serves spicy Chongqing cuisine. He has developed a close relationship with his customers.

“I cook the food on my own for my customers, most of whom

are tourists. When I serve them, I often sit and chat with them and listen to their stories,” he said.

“In my spare time, I go with friends to climb Mount Cangshan, or cycle around Erhai Lak

  ”Study it, I’m sure you’ll agree,” Trump told reporters.

  The jab at O’Rourke was not just a throwaway. It was a return to the forensic targ

  Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time of national political angst and wi

th a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittli

ng opponents, to detract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida govern
