The US Department of Homeland Security issued an alert warning on Monday that Chinese-made drones may be se
nding sensitive flight data back to their manufacturers in China, where it can be accessed by the government there.
According to a report by CNN, the alert warns companies and organizations that the US gov

Filmmakers should focus more on publicity
Li Guomin, adviser to China Film Association and Changchun Film Group Corporation
That China has produced some excellent films, including the Red Sorghum, Farewell My Concubine and The Wan
dering Earth, while allowing foreign films to be screened in the country demonstrates both its cultural inclu
siveness and independence, without which the Chinese movie market could not have become so vibrant.
In some sense, China has made more marked achievements in reforming and developi
ng its film industry than most other countries, including India that is known for its Bollywo
integration－trade, investment and finance－began benefiting large emerging and developing econ
omies. To be sustainable, globalization cannot serve just a few wealthy advanced economies. It m
ust also serve poorer and faster-growing economies, which today account for most of the global growth.
So, by flirting with trade protectionism and punitive tariffs on imports, adva
nced economies are seeking to implement the wrong policies at the wrong time. As the adv
anced countries have fallen into secular stagnation, they desperately need growth. Therefore, the rise of poorer eco
nomies is not a win-lose game, because it benefits the advanced economies, too.
In the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis, all major advanced econom
ies would have faced another Great Depression without the support of large emerging economies, particularly Ch
ina. And the contribution of these countries to global GDP growth is expected to climb to 80 percent by 2050.
The Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition opened just two days before the May holiday, giving
the public a close-up view of state-of-the-art gardens created by horticulturists from around the world.
China hosted a similar exhibition in Kunming, Yunnan province, in 1
999. In the two decades since, the social and economic situations in China have unde
rgone tremendous changes. A growing awareness of environmental protection is one of them.
Two decades ago, the Chinese people embraced the Kunming horticu
ltural show as a novelty and curiosity because the countr
y at that time did not have many opportunities to host large international gatherings.
Economic development at the time was the top priority of the country,
which explains why the news media were so interested in reporting that 15 billion yu
an ($2.23 billion) in economic and trade deals were inked during the exhibition.
