hroughout the world, with a history of more than 2,000 years. In 2006, the traditional festival was listed as part of China’s
national intangible cultural heritage. In 2008, it was recognized as a public holiday in the Chinese mainland.
The Dragon Boat Festival commemorates the death of Qu Yuan, a Chu state
official and poet who lived during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC) before the reu
nification of China under the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC). He was exiled after opposing his king’s decision to ally wit
h the neighboring state of Qin, and when Chu was finally conquered by Qin, he
committed suicide by drowning in the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.
The Chu people, who admired Qu Yuan for his loyalty and integrity, th
rew rice dumplings into the river to feed the fish so they would not eat the body of their po
et hero. People then started dragon boat racing to scare off the fish.
Since then, the fifth day of the fifth month on the lunar calendar is cel
brated as the Dragon Boat Festival. The following are some customs for the festival.

For example, Zhenjiang in Jiangsu province, promised bonuses of 150,000 and 200,000 yuan for house purchases to gradua
tes with master’s and doctoral degrees, respectively, after they work in the city for three years.
Haikou, capital of Hainan province, is attracting college students with a monthly rent s
ubsidy of 1,500 yuan, with an 18,000-yuan allowance to graduates who decide to buy an apartment there.
Employment, especially some groups such as college gradu
ates and demobilized military staff, remains a priority to the government.
Premier Li Keqiang said at a teleconference on May 13 that employme
nt pressure will be felt this year by a larger number of college graduates. However, promotin
en he visited a museum of broken relationships in Chengdu, capita
l of Southwest China’s Sichuan province, with two friends in January. They tho
ught it would be a good thing for Taiyuan to have a place for people to bury souvenirs from a failed relationship.
They acted fast and opened the museum after three months’ preparation.
The world’s first museum of broken relationships was founded in Croatia in 2006 by two artists, who
ended their four-year relationship and got the idea of setting up a museum to house their leftover personal items.
China has several museums of broken relationships now, in Nanjing, Chen
gdu, Xi’an, Wuhan, Beijing, Chongqing, Jinan, Harbin, Changsha, Guangzhou and Changchun.

ucing poverty further. Although these countries face significant headwinds, they could also seize imp
ortant new growth opportunities－especially with the help of digital platforms.
The headwinds are certainly considerable. For starters, advances in digital technolo
gies－robotics, machine learning, sensors, and vision－directly threaten the labor-intensive manu
facturing and assembly upon which lower-income, nonresource-rich economies have traditionally relied.
Moreover, climate change has had its greatest economic impact on the tropical and subtropical regio
ns where most of the lower-income countries are located. The effects of global warming are highly disrup

“And the essence of the 40-year story is amity between the peoples, which lays the foundation for

Hundreds of US citizens participated in the series from Feb 6 to April 19, sharing their personal stories about China thro

Moreover, Pakistan intends to send one of their astronauts to China’s space station by 2022, A

the opening ceremony of China Space Day in Changsha, Hunan province, on Wednesday.
“Hopefully, the agreement on the matter will be signed very soon. We will select the candidates based on the agreement. Also, they
will come to China for some parts of the training,” Nadeem said. He added that Pakistan and China will furth
