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

The riots have become 上海会所iolent. The police ha

But this is also an exact description of the rising violence between two bitterly distrustful religious communities that I witn

essed on the streets of my native Belfast in British-ruled Northern Ireland exactly-uncannily-half a century ago as a te上海会所

enager in that unforgettable, agonizing August of 1969. The lessons I learned then would serve the people of the H

上海会所品茶微信ong Kong Special Administrative Region well today before they bring an unimaginable disaster upon themselves.

Violent protests against authorities never bring peace. They only bring war, destruction

and suffering-almost always on a scale that none of the demonstrators could have imagined when they took to the上海会所

streets. Prosperity never follows violent protests. At best, there is mass unemployment and despair as local bu

sinesses and national investment flee the territory-a process which could continue for decades. You do not build fac上海会所品茶微信

tories and hire workers when those factories could be razed in one of the endless clashes.

The “freedom” the demonstrators in Hong Kong have been demanding is illusory. It is fool’s gold. It is the mythical pot o

上海会所f gold at the end of the rainbow. This kind of “freedom” will never benefit the people of Hong Kong. At best it could be gra

nted, but at the cost of a serious decline in investment from both the Chinese mainland and other regions of Asia.

Hong Kong’s enormous advantage for decades, including the past two decades under Chinese a上海会所品茶微信

utonomous rule, has been that it is considered a secure, predictable and safe place to do business wit

h the mainland and with the wider region. But that no longer seems true. The longer the protests rage and the wi上海会所

der and more serious they become, the more that incalculable advantage will be eroded.

When I was a young boy, Belfast was still the largest ship building center on earth. In the late上海会所品茶微信

1960s, the British government invested in two gigantic gantry cranes called Goliath and Samson-at the time the

largest such pieces of machinery in the world-to build super oil tankers. They still stand today as tourist attr

上海会所actions, looming 32 and 35 floors high over the city. But they were never used industrially. Not once. The N

orthern Irish Civil War (known with masterly understatement as “The Troubles”) saw to that.

The great shipyard that at its peak employed 35,000 workers became an indust上海会所品茶微信

rial wasteland peopled only by ghosts. Even after peace finally returned to Northern Ir

eland, after 30 years of civil strife, the great complex on Queen’s Island never recovered, never revived.

上海会所品茶微信In 2016, aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis and four ships in its strike group were denied port visits to Hong Kong after t

he US criticized China’s activities in the South China Sea. China also denied similar visits by US warships in 2014 and 2007.

Warship port calls to Hong Kong are defense and diplomatic affairs t上海会所

hat require special permission by the central government in Beijing, according to the Basic

Law of the HKSAR. The Hong Kong government is tasked with hosting and carrying out the details of such events.

Port call activities typically consist of diplomatic exchanges, repairs, refueling, restocking of supplies and local tours, sho上海会所品茶微信

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs University, said the US Navy has a long track record of port visits上海会所

to Hong Kong given its strategic location, and requests for such visits must be submitted in advance.

“Hong Kong has been in turmoil for months now. Coincidence or n

上海会所品茶微信ot, the US Navy couldn’t have picked a more terrible time for a port call. It feels highly su

spicious and does not take the feelings of the Chinese people into consideration,” Li said.
