Telecom carriers, chipmakers and smartphone vendors

 in China are ready to commercialize 5G. China will directly grant 5G licenses, instead of the prev

ious plan to give several key cities interim 5G licenses, to better time the rollout,” said a source clo

sed to the telecom industry regulator who asked to remain anonymous because public statements are not authorized.

Michael Gao Wenhao, deputy general manager of the 5G industrial products line at ZTE, disclosed at a 5G conference in

Hong Kong on Thursday that “China is likely to start commercial use of 5G nationwide on Oct 1”.

He told China Daily that he got the information from the country’s major telecom operators.

China said earlier that it was considering a pre-commercial launch of 5G this year, follo

Paul Tapponnier, a distinguished research professor at the

 administration’s Institute of Crustal Dynamics, said he “wholeheartedly” welcomes the project. China boasts unique

conditions to carry out the experiment as most of its earthquakes occur “inside the land under the feet of th

e people” rather than in the ocean, and there are many active faults in the country.

“My personal hope is that if there is any way or any future in trying

to forecast earthquakes, it may very well happen in C

hina,” said Tapponnier, also foreign associate member of the United States’ National Academy of Sciences.

According to the administration, the country is stricken by an average 20 earthqua

kes above magnitude 5 every year. There is an earthquake above magnitude 8 every decade. Since the turn of

the new millennium, more than 91,800 people have been killed by earthquakes in the country.

The industrial park sits on nearly 26 hectares of land in

Ballard County and has been set up to use the carp acquired by the fish center. Twelve tracts of land inside the park are for sale.

On opening day, eight tracts were already claimed, with most of the investors coming from China.

Jiang Chenguang, an internet businessman from the Guangxi

Zhuang autonomous region, launched the United Fisheries Group to process carp into fish balls

and fish cakes for export to China. Two Rivers Foods will process smoked fish, and has already shipped a smoker to the site.

A business called Lakeside City has been formed to process carp into salted fish, while

Eco Fish, which already existed, has hired fishermen to catch carp, process them and recycle waste into fertilizer.

Zhu Hongwei, a hotel and catering businessman from Jiangsu province, decided on the day the indus

trial park opened to buy one tract of land for food processing. “I will decide how to process the fish later,” Zhu said.

In addition to being members of local committees of the

Communist Party of China and local governments, the punished o

fficials also come from State-owned enterprises and public institutes, it said.

Jilin outnumbers the other seven provincial regions, with 177 punished officials. In one of

the cases there, 22 officials were punished because of the continuous deterioration of the Liaoyuan Riv

er and the slow progress in remediation of the water body in the city of Liaoyuan.

In the first half of 2017, the water quality of the river was found below Grade V, the lowest level in the co

untry’s five-tier water quality system, in eight of the nine monitoring stations along the stream. The ci

ty was also found to have only completed 28 of 67 projects that were listed in its 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-15).

Wang Liping, Party chief of Liaoyuan, for example, was re

moved from his post, and four officials were given severe warnings within the Party.

Previously, about 3,100 officials have been held accountable for environ

mental violations in the first three rounds of inspections, which were launched in late 2015.
