The region’s measures for mountaineering safety ma

anagement include controlling the number of climbers, limiting the climbing seas

on, setting high requirements and maintaining the high-traffic climbing routes.

“Seasonally, since 2017, we have only allowed climbers on Mount Q

omolangma in spring due to favorable weather conditions of the northern slope,” Trinley said.

“Controlling the number of climbers is another key measure to ensure both mountaineering safety and ecological protection,” he said.

In 2019, the north face routes had a total of 362 people, including 142 foreign climbers from

33 countries, 12 domestic climbers and 208 Nepali Sherpa mountaineering guides, the association said.

Within the last few years, the overall number of climbers has averaged 290, the association said.

Another major problem is that the return on equity in the

infrastructure sector is a mere 3 percent while that in the US capital market is about 12 percent. So how can the US attract more private capital to the infr

astructure sector without guaranteeing a return on equity equal to that in the capital market?

US suffering from a financial Dutch disease

The US’ monetary hegemony is itself a big impediment to the reindustria

lization process, which could be viewed as a sort of financial Dutch disease-the apparent causal

relationship between the increase in the economic development of a specific sector and a decline in other sectors. The mor

e heated the US stock market gets, the more serious the Dutch disease will become. And, ironically, the US leader is k

een on strengthening the stock market to showcase his political and economic track record.

Besides, the US administration cannot launch large-scale infrastructure construction projects, significantly redu

ce the trade deficit with China and deny Chinese investors access to its market all at the same time.

Huawei said in a statement on Thursday that restricting t

 company from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger.

“Instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior, yet more expensive alternatives, leav

ing it lagging behind in 5G deployment and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.”

The company said it is ready and willing to engage with the US government to come up with effective measures to ensure product security.

In response to the ban on Huawei buying parts from US companies, the company said such a deci

sion will “do significant economic harm to the US companies with which Huawei does business, affect tens of t

housands of US jobs and disrupt the current collaboration and mutual trust that exist in the global supply chain”.

Wang Peng, deputy head of the China Center for Information Industry Development, said the new US moves will disrupt the whole global electronics in

ustry and hurt a string of US companies that supply chips and other components to Huawei.

It is sometimes called Cantonese cancer, as the inciden

e in Guangdong – 30 cases per 100,000 people – is more than 30 times higher than the rest of the world.

When Ma was a visiting scholar in the United States, he found many patients we

re Chinese-American, and most of their families were originally from Guangdong.

An epidemiology study in 2010 traced the risk gene for this type of cance

r to the Baiyue people, an ethnic group that lived in the area more than 2,000 years ago.

In 1998, the US National Comprehensive Cancer Network proposed concomitant radiothera

py and chemotherapy along with three courses of intensified adjuvant chemotherapy afterward to treat patients with a

dvanced nasopharyngeal cancer. It became the standard treatment for advanced cases around the world.

For years, Ma has wondered if it really worked for Chinese people.
