The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

Telecom carriers, chipmakers and smartphone vendors

 in China are ready to commercialize 5G. China will directly grant 5G licenses, instead of the prev

ious plan to give several key cities interim 5G licenses, to better time the rollout,” said a source clo

sed to the telecom industry regulator who asked to remain anonymous because public statements are not authorized.

Michael Gao Wenhao, deputy general manager of the 5G industrial products line at ZTE, disclosed at a 5G conference in

Hong Kong on Thursday that “China is likely to start commercial use of 5G nationwide on Oct 1”.

He told China Daily that he got the information from the country’s major telecom operators.

China said earlier that it was considering a pre-commercial launch of 5G this year, follo

wed by large-scale commercialization in 2020. Miao Wei, minister of industry an

Also on Friday, shortly after the US said it would ban Hua

 Huawei from buying US technology without special approval, Huawei’s chipmaking arm, HiSilico

n, said it has long been prepared for the “extreme scenario” of the US blocking access to some components and technologies.

“We have been developing backup products for years in anticipation. … Such efforts can ensure the strategic safety of most of the

company’s products and a continuous supply of most products,” said HiSilicon President He Tingbo in an internal letter.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a news conference

on Friday that the development and utilization of 5G depends on global cooperation, and i

nterference by the US undermines the principle of fair competition and shows a lack of respect for other countries.

HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chipsets like Kirin, which has b

een used in Huawei’s high-end smartphones. In addition to server chips, the company has also

Paul Tapponnier, a distinguished research professor at the

 administration’s Institute of Crustal Dynamics, said he “wholeheartedly” welcomes the project. China boasts unique

conditions to carry out the experiment as most of its earthquakes occur “inside the land under the feet of th

e people” rather than in the ocean, and there are many active faults in the country.

“My personal hope is that if there is any way or any future in trying

to forecast earthquakes, it may very well happen in C

hina,” said Tapponnier, also foreign associate member of the United States’ National Academy of Sciences.

According to the administration, the country is stricken by an average 20 earthqua

kes above magnitude 5 every year. There is an earthquake above magnitude 8 every decade. Since the turn of

the new millennium, more than 91,800 people have been killed by earthquakes in the country.

Industry insiders said that the rapid development of interne

 technology in China and people’s heavy use of online shopping, mobile payment and

banking services have allowed e-visa services to take root quickly in the country.

Eleven people dead in Shenzhen floodsmissing in a floo

Eleven people were killed in floods triggered by a sudden rainstorm in the southern Chin

ese city of Shenzhen Thursday night, local authorities confirmed Saturday.

The last missing person was found dead Saturday afternoon, said a source with the city’s emergency management bureau.

At around 9 pm Thursday, the rainstorm pounded Shenzhen, leading to floods that flushed aw

ay dredging workers at different river sections in the districts of Luohu and Futian.

The average precipitation in three hours Thursday night reached 65 mil

limeters in Luohu district, data from the Shenzhen Meteorological Bureau showed.

Provincial authorities of Guangdong province in charge of workpl

ace safety and emergency management on Friday issued a circular on strengthening safety and prevent

ing deadly risks during flood season, demanding all projects be halted and workers be evacuated to safe grou

nds during heavy rainfall to prevent loss of life. Shenzhen falls under jurisdiction of Guangdong.

The government had also warned pro-Brexit politicians th

 that rejecting May’s deal could see Brexit delayed indefinitely.

The promises moved some previously resistant Brexit-backers to support the deal. Former Forei

gn Secretary Boris Johnson — a likely contender to replace May as Conservative Party leader — twe

eted that rejecting it risked “being forced to accept an even worse version of Brexit or losing Brexit altogether.”

But the Democratic Unionist Party in Northern Ireland, with 10 seats in the House

of Commons, has refused to back the agreement because it treats Northern Ireland differently from the rest of the UK.

Parliament voted on the legally binding, 585-page withdrawal agreement that May agreed upon with the EU late las

t year. It set out the terms of Britain’s departure — including its financial divorce settlement with the EU and the rights of EU and U.K. cit

izens after Brexit — but not a shorter declaration on future ties, which is also part of the agreed-upon divorce deal.

Removing the political declaration from the Brexit vote altered the deal enough to over

come a parliamentary ban against asking lawmakers the same question over and over again.

What we still don’t know about the Ethiopian Airlines Flig

  Investigators are combing through debris at the site where Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed on Sunday, attem

pting to make sense of a disaster that claimed 157 lives and left thousands more in grief and shock.

  In the days since the crash, the personal stories of many of those on board have

come to light — highlighting the truly international nature of a tragedy that saw people of 35 different nationalities die.

  The focus on Boeing has also been intense. On Tuesday, the U

K joined several other countries in grounding the company’s newest, big-selling 737 MAX 8 jet o

ver safety concerns. The MAX 8 was also the model involved in October’s Lion Air crash, which killed all 189 people on board.

  But much more about Sunday’s crash remains unclear — including crucial questions over what caused the jet to go down.
