To encourage them to move, Guizhou authorities have used a better schooling for their children as bait,” said Zhang Qing of Guizhou’s provincial Education Department.
“More than 130,000 children will be enrolled in the 1,600 preschool facilities and primary and secondary schools near their urban s
ettlements. Also, 333 nurseries and junior high schools will be built to enroll some 50,000 relocated children,” Zhang added.
To promote educational development and cultivate more high-quality teachers in the country’s central and w
estern regions, China launched a State-level training program for rural primary and middle school teachers in 2010.
Primary school teachers in Guizhou have joined the training at Beijing Normal University.
In September 2014, President Xi Jinping met with teachers from Guizhou who were r
eceiving training at Beijing Normal University. The group of teachers later wrote a letter to Xi.
In a letter of reply to the Guizhou teachers, Xi asked them to lead education reform in poor areas.

China and the United States are expected to come to an agreement soon over trade frictions, analysts said, as the negotiating teams a
re reported to be discussing the wording of an accord and considering applying the brakes to their tariff standoff.
They made the prediction after Chinese and US officials said there had been concrete p
rogress on multiple issues in the latest round of trade talks in Washington.
During the latest talks, held from Thursday to Sunday in Washington, the seventh round since February of last year, th
e two sides focused on the text of an agreement, the Chinese delegation said, according to a Xinhua News Agency report.
The negotiators also had made substantial progress on such specific issues as technology transfers, protection of i
ntellectual property rights, nontariff barriers, the service industry, agriculture and exchange rates, the delegation said.
On the basis of the latest progress, the two sides are expected to continue their work
into the next stage, in accordance with the instructions of the two countries’ top leaders, according to Xinhua.
2018 was a bumpy year for China and US bilateral relations. As 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties betw
een the two nations, both sides have been making an effort to ease trade tensions, as well as deepen cooperation.
“The experience and lessons over the past 40 years are
enough to prove that for China and the US, cooperation will del
iver win-win results, whereas confrontation will end with a loss for both sides,” noted Wang.
As the latest round of China-US trade talks took place in January, the two sides made import
ant progress for its current stage, while the two had “candid, specific and fruitful” discussions, according to Xinhua.
“In today’s world, where the interests of China and the US are interwoven in the era of in-
depth development of economic globalization, both countries should eliminate all barriers,” added Wang.
