We have decided to fo上海会所hinese custom and

 create a grave site here in America to honor Yingying’s memory,” said Zhang Ron

ggao, who had begged his daughter’s killer to reveal what he did with his daughter’s body.上海会所

The news conference came days after the family’s lawyer, Steve Beckett, announced that he had learned from Brendt Christensen’s defense team that Zha

上海会所ng’s dismembered body was somewhere in a landfill, giving the family a sliver of hope that it could be found.

But Beckett explained in gruesome detail on Wednesday why that might never hap

pen, even suggesting that any remains “could be smaller than a cellphone.”上海会所品茶微信

Christensen, 30, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison last month in the June 2017 kidnap

ping and killing of Zhang Yingying, a 26-year-old visiting Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois.上海会所

Beckett explained that, after Christensen was convicted, prosecutors explained to the Zhan

g family and their lawyers what Christensen’s attorneys said he told them about what he had done.上海会所品茶微信

“He told them after killing her, he placed her remains in three separate garbage bags,” Beckett said.

He said Christensen told his attorneys that he tossed the bags i上海会所

nto a dumpster near his apartment before he disposed of her clothes, cellphone and other of her pers

onal items in dumpsters around the area, which is about 120 miles (195 kilometers) southwest of Chicago.

上海会所品茶微信Sanitation workers emptied the dumpster that purportedly contained the victim’s

remains a few days later and took the contents to a landfill in the Danville area, where they were co

mpacted “at least twice” before being taken to a private landfill and covered with least 30 feet (9 meters) of trash.上海会所

He said that although authorities have a general idea of

where the remains might be, recovering them would be expensive and difficult. 上海会所品茶微信

Such an effort would also be complicated by environmental rules regarding digging at landf

ills and the fact that the remains have certainly decomposed and are believed to be “very small in size.”

Increasing global de上海会所nd for Chinese products du

ue to their cost advantage and rapidly growing domestic demand driven by income growth form the basis of their expan

上海会所ding scales. But the greatest factor driving Chinese enterprises’ continuous development is innovation.

Reform will promote innovation. Innovation will generate new demand and prompt Chinese enterprises to impr

上海会所品茶微信ove their quality, while technological innovation is key to their development and expansion. And to c

hange their long-term dependence on low-end products, the Chinese companies, with the government’s active h

elp, have invested more in research and development to facilitate their qualitative growth and expansion.上海会所

Last year, China’s total investment in R&D accounted for 2.18 percent of GDP, equivalent to the average of OECD countries, with the average R&D intensity o

上海会所f high-tech enterprises and A-share listed companies being about 3 percent and 4.87 percent.

Higher R&D investment has increased the enterprises’ capacity for independent innovation and competition advantage.

In particular, since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in November 2012, which for上海会所

mulated the innovation-driven development strategy and five new development concepts, Chinese en

上海会所品茶微信terprises have increased R&D investment and achieved remarkable breakthroughs in core technologies. In

fields as important as aviation, railways and 5G technology, Chinese enterprises have even taken a leading position.

Huawei is a good example of an innovation-driven high-tech Chinese company.上海会所

For years Huawei’s R&D intensity has been above 14 percent. In actual terms, Huawei’s R&D investment las

上海会所品茶微信t year was 101.5 billion yuan ($14.77 billion)-the fifth-highest in the world and more than that of Microsoft, Apple an

d Intel. Also, by the end of last year, Huawei had more than 87,800 global patents. No wonder Huawei’s R&D in

vestment and abundant innovation have placed Huawei at 61 on the 2019 Fortune Global 500 list.上海会所品茶微信

And despite Washington preventing US companies from selling components to Hua

wei in the first half of this year, the company’s mobile phone shipment grew continuously.

上海会所Since the beginning of this century, Chinese companies have been

applying or trying to apply modern information technology to improve production and ope

rations. The Internet Plus strategy has helped expedite the integration of enterprises and the inte上海会所品茶微信

net. And many enterprises have achieved rapid growth by making use of innovative business models thanks to IT.

Nation’s NEV industry t 上海会所o accelerate development

The Chinese authorities’ ramped-up efforts to promote high-qualit

y development in the new energy vehicle sector, reflected by the most recent re 上海会所品茶微信

lease of an updated list on NEVs to enjoy exemptions of vehicle and vessel tax, will further help boost the healthy de

 上海会所velopment of the sector and also promote clean energy consumption, industry insiders said.

The vehicle and vessel tax, paid annually by car or ship owners, varies between hundre 上海会所

ds of yuan to thousands of yuan, depending on engine sizes and the capacity of vehicles or ships.

 上海会所品茶微信According to the latest list of NEVs and small engine vehicles to enjoy vehicle and vessel tax cu

ts that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued recently on its website, vehicle and ve

ssel tax will be slashed completely for 444 types of NEVs and halved for 72 types of energy-saving vehicles. 上海会所

Moreover, the list has extended tax cuts to more NEVs compared with the previous list, and

 上海会所品茶微信makes higher requirements on the performance of the NEVs to be included, such as lower power co

nsumption per 100 kilometers, the increased energy density of battery packs, and a higher cruising range, a

cording to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association. 上海会所品茶微信

“The new list mirrors the progress of China’s NEVs, especially in key perfo

 上海会所rmance indicators, and such progress is driven by incentives from the Chinese authorities,” Cui said.

“It is obvious Chinese NEVs have been making remarkable progress in high-quality development, and this will continue.”

The Chinese authorities announced cuts in vehicle and vessel tax on vehicles and ships that use new energy or engines 上海会所品茶微信
