As a step towards rural modernization and transformation, digital rural development play
s a crucial role in rural revitalization and building a digital China, according to the guideline jointly issue
d by the general offices of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council.

According to a news release from the local fire department, the battery of an electric bicycle parked beside a building for s
tudents ignited, starting the fire. The incident is still being investigated and some people have been detained.
This is not the first fatal fire caused by an electric bicycle. In December 2017, five people were killed and nine injured when an electric bike started a fire in Beijing, and
in July last year, one person was killed and another injured in Wuxi, Jiangsu province. In fact, type “electric bicy

The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth
ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.
The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.
In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza
tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every
step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.

Crude steel production capacity in Hebei province and Tianjin will be capped at 200 million metric tons
and 15 million tons by 2020, as part of China’s efforts to optimize the iron and steel industry, a senior government official said.
