As the world’s second-largest movie market with a grow

th rate of more than 9 percent three years in a row, the Chinese film market is extreme

ly open and inclusive with outstanding movies from around the world, fine works of Hollyw

ood in particular, being screened in China even before they are shown in other countries.

This shows China’s decision to open up its film market in the trough in 1995 was absolutely right. Since then the quota for Hollywo

od movies has been significantly raised from the initial 10 films a year. The opening up of the Chinese movie ma

rket proves that the more open and inclusive a film market is, the higher the number of good films it will generate o

wing to the active and beneficial exchanges with the world’s most advanced filmmaking countries.

The remarkable performance of about a dozen Chinese movies in recent

years makes it clear that well-made films that showcase Chinese culture and touch Chin

ese people’s hearts could not only become smash hits but also help spread Chinese culture. Which g

In the years since, the country has continued to maint

tain a breakneck pace of economic development, which has brought booming economic prosperity.

Unfortunately, it has also brought a deteriorating environment. Seeing heavy smog, for ex

ample, many people feel that a worsening environment will destroy the happiness brought by economic growth.

Since 2012, the new leadership under President Xi Jinping has put forward a series of ecol

ogical ideas. On Sunday, Xi said at the opening ceremony of the exhibition that “green mountains and cle

ar waters are indeed mountains of gold and silver, and environmental improvement means great productivity”.

This idea, dubbed the theory of two mountains, enjoys immense popular support in China.

Xi, who is also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party o

f China, urged officials at all levels never to sacrifice the environment for economic growth.

Small train supplies water to mountain for 44 years

 For residents in Huojugou village in China’s Changbai Mountains, a train whistl

e is a euphonious sound that will bring gurgling water to their kitchen and bathhouse.

For 44 years, the mountainous village and several others in northeast China’s Jilin Province

have relied on a train, which only has one locomotive and one tank car, to provide their water supply.

The train commutes between the towns of Songshu and Baihe, nestled deep in Changbai Mountain. Since 1975, it has run for m

ore than 1.6 million km, delivering water to over 2,600 nearby villagers that had limited access to clean water.

Though cisterns have been built to store water unloaded from the trains, villagers along the line

still keep the tradition of welcoming the train in person, clanking their buckets and bottles.

Fetching water used to be a big headache. We had to travel to a far-away river to get water and e

ven make a hole in the ice during winter,” said Li Zuopei, an 80-year-old resident in Yingbishan village.

“Then the small train sent water right to our doorsteps, and it’s amaz

ing that the service has been going on uninterrupted for so many years,” said Li.

Obscure parliamentary procedures have been resurrecte

 providing daily drama from the House of Commons but making the future of Britain’s biggest change in generations no clearer.

After finally recognising that her minority Conservative g

overnment could not push through a Brexit deal on its own, May started talks this w

eek with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the hope of coming up with a cross-party solution.

But that means accepting the need for more time, including the possibility of Britain hol

ding European Parliament elections on May 23, which May has long hoped to avoid at all cost.

“The United Kingdom proposes that this period should end on 30 June 2019,” May said in the letter.

“The government will want to agree a timetable for ratification that allows the United Kin

gdom to withdraw from the European Union before 23 May, 2019, and therefore cancel the European Parlia

ment elections, but will continue to make responsible prepara

tions to hold the elections should this not prove possible.”
