al for innovation and creativity, such as new disaster risk prediction and analysis, and disaster-resilient infrastructures.

Huang Runqiu, vice-minister of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said dis

While early-stage Uber investors such as Benchmark, Men

Different from 3G and 4G technologies, 5G technolo

 will impact various industries and stimulate the emergence of many new products, services and industries.

China Daily’s app was named the “Highly Commended” news app of the year at the newsawards 2019 in London on Wednesday.

The result was announced at the gala dinner held at the Royal Lancaster London. Ch

ina Daily beat two other nominees – The Independent and the Belfast Telegraph – to win the honor.

The China Daily app offers “a powerful mix of technology and innovation, with great clarity on audience needs,” said the judges.

The automotive sector will most likely be one of the first industries to rely

on 5G, connecting vehicles to other vehicles, roadsides, traffic lights, buildings and the inter

net to process data across cars or in the cloud, according to the report.

As 5G technology has integrated various industries and technologies, the number of 5G Stand

ards-Essential Patents applications surged to more than 60,000 globally by the end of April, the report said.

Boosting rural areas will help solve dilemmas of ove

rcrowding and rampant construction plaguing cities, and the development of cities will also offer unique ways to bring about rural revitalization,” Chen said.

“As restrictions on hukou will gradually be removed, cities need to be well-prepared to offer

accommodation and employment opportunities, and allow children of migrant workers to have equal access to education,” Chen added.

China has made steady progress in urbanization, as the ranks of permanent urban r

esidents stood at 831 million at the end of 2018, up 17.9 million from the previous year, said the National Bureau of Statistics.

Last month, the National Development and Reform Commission said it

plans to increase the urbanization rate by at least 1 percentage point by the end of this year.

Shen Chi, vice-director of the China Center for Urban Development, said the government’s new

plan will help foster high-quality and sustainable economic development across the nation.

“Relaxing the hukou policy will be a key step in promoting the free flow of labor across

the nation,” Shen said. “A systematic consideration and arrangement of the integratio
