future for mankind in his speech at the headquarters of the United
ations in September 2015, and in his report for the 19th National Congress of the Communist Par
ty of China in October 2017, Xi has pledged on different occasions to build a peaceful, safe, prosperous, open, inc
lusive, clean and beautiful world to let the sunshine of a community of shared future for mankind illuminate the world.

James Hall, managing partner of Hall & Associates, an aviation consulting firm in Washin
gton and former chairman of the NTSB, said it’s unclear how the FAA’s new panel will m
esh with investigations of Boeing launched by the US inspector general, US Justice Department and Congress.
“Will the technical review team look at the certification pro
cess, or is it an attempt to get the plane back in the air?” Hall said. “We’ll see.”
Boeing said it would work closely with the new task force.
“We welcome the Joint Authorities Technical Review and look forward to working wi
th the panel,” Paul Bergman, a spokesman for Boeing in Seattle, said in a statement. “Safety is our top priority.”
Every morning, dozens of students from Myanmar walk hand in hand across the border into China’s Yunnan province.
There, they are led by patrol officers to Yinjing Frontier Primary School. After school, as they are escorted to the border insp
ection station, they wave, tell the officers goodbye and return to their homes in Myanmar.
The students attend the first frontier primary school in China. Loca
ted in Yinjing village in the small border city of Ruili in Yunnan province, the school has 36 My
anmar students and 99 Chinese students. Founded in 1960, it has been admitting students from Myanmar since 1990.
Wen Liang, 10, from Myanmar, has repeated this routine for three years. “I like go
ing to school in China. It makes me very happy because I have many friends there,” Wen said.

cultural exchanges and local-level cooperation, and strengthen popular support for bilateral relations, Xi said.

Wu Qiang, who is in charge of Oppo’s overseas business, said the company is not adopting an aggressi
ve strategy in overseas markets. Instead, it strictly follows CEO Chen Mingyong’s principle of “eating rice bite by bite”.
“We will only enter the next market after doing a good job in existing markets,” Wu said.
Oppo’s intensified interest in foreign countries came after the Chinese sma
rtphone market hit a saturation point, with shipments declining for several quarters.
From September to December of 2018, smartphone shipments in China plunged almost 10 pe
rcent year-on-year, according to data from market research company International Data Corp or IDC.
Though Oppo outgrew the industry average to achieve an annual expansion rate of 1.5 pe
rcent in that time-frame, there is still a pressing need to look for new opportunities, Wu said.
