to skiing, skating and other winter sports, which in turn will promote more national and int

ernational winter sports events. With the aim to better develop winter sports, governments at all levels shou

ld issue policies to encourage more people, in particular, teenagers, to follow and play winter sports.

Besides, the government should learn from the experiences of Nordic countries how to increase the popularity of winter sports.

Messi shines as Barca secure their 8th league title in year

Leo Messi scored the only goal of the game as FC Barcelona

beat Levante 1-0 to assure the 2018-19 Liga Santander title on Saturday night.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde again rotated his starting 11 for the game and Messi spent the fir

st 45 minutes watching from the sidelines. Barca controlled the first half with Luis Suarez and Philippe Cou

tinho testing Levante keeper Aitor Fernandez, who was his side’s best player in the opening 45 minutes.

Despite Barca’s dominance, they were unable to open the scorin

g and Messi replaced Coutinho at the start of the second half to try and find a way through.

He was on target for the 34th time in the league this season in the 62n

d minute as he fired home a left foot shot following a headed pass from Arturo Vidal.

Benat opened the scoring for the home side with a

spectacular 41st minute free kick, but Borja Baston equalized four minutes later in a game in which both teams looked flat in their third game in seven days.

Leganes and Celta Vigo drew 0-0, which draws Celta a point closer to

survival and means they remain unbeaten since Iago Aspas returned to the side after injury.

In overseas ventures, insurance gives firms a sure footing

Overseas investment inevitably means risks and uncertainties for Chinese comp

anies, but many have started using insurance services to help control and reduce risks.

“Chinese companies face new situations while investing overseas, namely that global politi

cs and economics have become more complex,” said Wang Tingke, general manager of China Export and Cr

edit Insurance Corporation, or Sinosure, China’s State-funded policy-oriented insurance company.

“So while going abroad, Chinese companies need to i

ncrease their awareness of risks and set up comprehensive risk management systems.”

Sinosure, established in 2001, said that it has suppor

rted Chinese companies export or invest in countries and regions involved

in the Belt and Road Initiative to a total of value $724 billion by the end of March, since 2013.

It has set up more than 2,300 insurance policies for projects that Chinese companies are carrying out in countries involve

d in the Belt and Road Initiative, and has paid a total of $2.8 billion in insurance claims to Chinese companies.

The Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by China in 2013, aims to build stronger links among countries across the globe.

Guan Wenfeng, assistant general manager of Sinosure Fujian bra

nch in Fujian province, said that about 10 years ago he needed to keep telling companies tha

t have international business or want to invest overseas what policy-oriented insurance products are. But gradually m

ore companies started contacting Sinosure to find out about insurance services for investing overseas.

Bridge of dreams brings two halves together

It’s so close, and yet it always seemed so far away. To get to the rur

al district just a few hundred meters away on the other side of the bay, locals used to have to ju

mp on a boat or drive about 160 kilometers-part of that journey on dusty, unsealed road.

Now anyone wanting to get from downtown Maputo

, capital of Mozambique, to Katembe, or vice versa, can do so with ease, and in a matter of min

utes, thanks to the longest twin-tower suspension bridge in Africa, that hangs over Maputo Bay.

“Mozambique had long planned to build a bridge linking the north and south of the bay, bu

t nothing came of them because of a lack of financing and technological difficulties,” said Wang Li

jun, vice-president of China Road and Bridge Corporation, which built the bridge.

qzof2.cn

As the bridge was being built the price of land in

Katembe rose, and industrial parks are being planned in the region,” Wang said. “So the bridge will deliver huge economic benefits.”

The project also benefits China. For example, as Mozambique is short of construction materials and equipment, the p

roject has driven the export of more than 70,000 metric tons of steel products and equipment worth $68 million from China.

Even though CRBC was no stranger to building bridges when it took

on the Maputo-Katembe project, particular difficulties were presented by the fact that

both countries have different evaluation systems and standards of construction, Wang said.

The bridge was designed to Chinese standards but subjected to local and European standards, and the company g

ot a German engineering services provider, Gauff, to oversee the project’s quality.

President Xi’s speech deeply motivated us and touch
