Among them, Shanghai Love Meal Industry Co has developed an automatic cooker to save time in the kitchen.
Three to five minutes after you put chopped raw food into a cabinet and push a button, a plate of delectable dish is served.
The automatic cooker is about 1.3 meters in height and occupies less
than a square meter of floor space. It looks like an ordinary
He Qing, the company’s chairman, said: “My wife used to complain
that I could offer no help but eat the food she cooked. I felt
frustrated for I really didn’t know how to cook. Therefore, I wondered
if I could invent an automatic cooking machine that simply would free
everybody from the labor.”
The idea of an automatic cooking machine attracted a number of
research teams because of its huge potential, but most gave up due to
the complex technologies involved.
It took He and his team eight years of trail and error, and tens of millions of yuan.
In a recent demonstration, a technician showed how the machine cooked a plate of rice cakes with onion and beef.
She put a box of onion, beef and rice cakes into the machine, and
three minutes after she pushed the “sauté” button, the machine was done
Then she put a plate at the bottom of the cabinet. The inner wok rotated automatically and transferred the dish to the plate.

Chengdu has many reasons to claim that it is most suitable for the development of the new economy.To get more Chengdu City news, you can visit shine news official website.
Firstly, it has fine industrial advantages, providing a solid
foundation for developing the new economy. Chengdu ranked fifth in the
ranking of 100 Chinese “Internet +” digital economy cities (the first in
southwest China), fostered six industrial clusters each with a value
over 100 billion yuan, and reshaped its economic geography, further
optimizing the industrial structure.
The output value of high and new industries in Chengdu reached
around 937.5 billion yuan in 2017, up 11.7 percent from a year earlier.
Chengdu newly increased 357,000 new economy enterprises in 2017, one
third of the total newly increased enterprises.
Secondly, Chengdu introduced a series of talent policies to attract
professionals for the new economy. So far, Chengdu already has 56
colleges and universities, more than 30 national research institutions,
which provide rich reserve of talent in the field of big data, 5G,
robots and the like.
Chengdu’s “12 talent policies” were issued in 2017 to encourage
professionals to settle in Chengdu. So far, the policies have attracted
almost 200,000 professionals to work or start a business in Chengdu.
Chengdu ranked third in the ranking of the most attractive cities for
overseas returnees, only next to Beijing and Shanghai, according to the
report issued by the Center for China and Globalization and job portal
Thirdly, Chengdu’s special regional cultural genes including
innovation spirit and inclusiveness, and pleasant environment provide
unlimited growth space for the new economy.
Chengdu has been the most pleasant city in China for many years. To
enhance this advantage to attract more talent and build a livable
“Garden City” to enhance competitiveness, Chengdu is constructing the
biggest city park in the world — Longquan Mountain City Forest Park and
the longest greenbelt — the Tianfu Greenbelt.
Fourthly, Chengdu stands at the forefront of inland opening as a
“national central city.” The construction of the Chengdu section of
Sichuan Free Trade Zone, the increase of the services of China-Europe
Express Railway as well as the construction of Tianfu International
Airport helped Chengdu expand opening-up.
Capitals also favor Chengdu since its declaration to develop the new
economy. Internet giants, such as Alibaba, Tecent and Huawei, set their
eyes on Chengdu. JD.com, one of the leading e-commerce giants, planned
to build its southwestern headquarters in Chengdu.
In 2005, 29-year-old Wang Hong was a third year graduate student at
Fujian Medical University in Fuzhou, southern China’s Fujian Province.
The chances of working at a local hospital after graduation were high,
but she was also seeking opportunities elsewhere.To get more Ningbo City news, you can visit shine news official website.
Then she saw an advertisement about the High-level Talent
Intelligence Introduction Conference in Ningbo. It promised to cover the
travel costs of graduates coming from other places. So she gave it a
The train from Fuzhou to Ningbo took about 10 hours. But the result
came much earlier than expected. In less than two weeks, she received an
offer from Ningbo Women and Children’s Hospital.
“Their efficiency was really impressive,” said Wang, who is now vice
head of the children’s gastroenterology department at the hospital.
“I only found out later that the person who interviewed me at the fair was the president of the hospital.”
The conference, initiated in 1999, has attracted over 60,000 people
like Wang to work and stay in Ningbo over the past 20 years. And in 2006
it became part of the Ningbo Talent, Science and Technology Week.
This year, the talent week includes 16 major events targeting
overseas returnees, academics, entrepreneurs and other high-end
professionals in specialized technological areas. Over 3,000 local
companies and institutions are offering more than 13,000 job
opportunities over the week, which ends today.
It is expected to attract more than 20,000 visitors.
In the Yangtze River Delta City Cluster Plan approved by the State
Council in 2016, Ningbo is listed as an independent metropolitan area,
“a world-class port and a hub of international shipping and logistics
services,” together with four other regional centers including Nanjing,
Hangzhou, Hefei and Suzhou-Wuxi-Changzhou.
The competition for talent has been fierce so far. Since December
last year, the Ningbo government has announced two measures under the
“3315 plan” to extend the scope of individuals and teams who can enjoy
preferential policies from the plan.According to these measures, a
start-up team which meets certain criteria and promises to stay in
Ningbo for at least 10 years can be funded with millions of yuan. If the
project is special enough, there is no funding limit.
“Ningbo has a large manufacturing output, larger than Hangzhou,”
said Jin Yan, vice head of the Organization Department of the Ningbo
Committee of the Communist Party of China.
“The area that we are weaker in is the service industry. So this
time nine new areas have been added to the plan, which include
e-commerce, shipping and logistics, finance and insurance, technology
services and modern farming, amongst others,” added Jin.
The “3315 plan” is first launched by the Ningbo government back in
2011. By the end of 2017, it had supported the establishment of 296
setups in Ningbo, bringing a total sales of 5.4 billion yuan and 860
million yuan (US$125 million) of profit and tax revenue in 2017 alone —
up 44 percent and 46 percent from a year earlier.
These companies are also bringing in the latest technology. In 2017,
the total investment in research and development reached 640 million
yuan, with 889 new patents approved. The number of patents approved in
the six years from 2011 to 2017 is 4,126.
The situation for investors in the private sector has been well maintained in Songjiang District and, in turn, private enterprises, accounting for over 90 percent of the district’s economy, have become major engines driving regional economic development, according to officials.To get more Songjiang District news, you can visit shine news official website.
“Songjiang has created a nurturing environment for the private sector,” said Chen Rong, chief of Songjiang Economic Committee.
Autowise.ai, a private sci-tech startup which settled at Tus-Caohejing Science Park in August 2017, developed the world’s first fleet of driverless sweeper trucks in April last year.
The company obtained its angel investment by the end of 2017 and achieved in less than two months its A round of funding of over 100 million yuan (US$14.5 million).
It is now starting business with many sanitation enterprises nationwide.
The achievements Autowise.ai made is inseparable from the G60 High-Tech Corridor cross-regional development vision that attracts talent and gathers technologies and information to the district. G60 is a cross-regional development program agreed between Songjiang and another eight cities in the Yangtze River Delta.
Shanghai Chuanglan Culture Communication Co, another private company based at the science park, developed into a well-known SMS verification code company within a few years of its establishment.
The company is providing services that cover 221 countries and regions. It has channel resources of more than 1,400 operators.
“After our company settled at the park, we couldn’t solve the accommodation problem of more than 300 employees. Then district officials learned of our situation and helped us solve the problem. Now our employees are ready to live in new apartments,” said Tang Xiaobo, chairman of the company.
Compared to the innovative incubator system Tus-Caohejing Science Park adopts to support startup companies, 27 private sector clusters in various communities or towns in the district offer services to private companies.
Based in Zhongshan Community, Shanghai Hebo Hydraulics Co is a leading design and manufacturing plant producing low-speed, high-torque hydraulic motors and matching products.
Financing a sore topic
The company kept on expanding in recent years and was in urgent need of a bigger production base. Officials of the community, once they became aware of the problem, provided them with short-term, mid-term and long-term solutions.
Financing has been a sore topic for the private sector and restraining its development. The district government joined with financial institutes to make it easier for the private sector to get finance.
The Songjiang government has prepared a guidance fund of 200 million yuan to invest in medium and small enterprises. The district guarantee fund center is also cooperating with banks to provide policy-based financing assurance for such enterprises.
China Construction Bank joined with tax authorities and provides loans to enterprises without the need to offer mortgages. By the end of October 2018 the bank had provided credits worth 243 million yuan to 340 companies.
The Post Office Savings Bank launched a green approval channel for qualified private companies with loans under 5 million yuan able to be granted in 7 working days.
Fu Tiegang, section chief of the Songjiang Economic Committee’s service department, said: “About 17,200 private companies registered from January to September 2018. The private sector in the district generated tax revenue of 23.487 billion yuan in the first three quarters of 2018, up 14.2 percent year on year and accounting for 51.73 percent of the total tax revenue of the district.”
Cheers, hoorays, whistling and Mexican waves filled the “Little Lotus” stadium on the last day of the 14th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in Hangzhou. The heat, blended with sweat and a whiff of disinfectant, seemed to be rising endlessly from the pool where thousands of eyes were fixed.Find the more Hangzhou City news from SHINE.
This was the final of the men’s 1,500-meter freestyle. No Chinese athletes were taking part but a cleaner was asking if Sun Yang, probably the best-known Chinese swimmer, was on TV. She wanted to shoot a video of the broadcast with her phone.
Outside the stadium, the fried chicken hawkers were staring at the television. The cold did not stop them from marveling at the athletes’ strength and speed.
Everybody knew the significance of the event, an international short-course swimming competition held every two years since 1993. Hangzhou is the third Chinese city to host it, after Hong Kong (1999) and Shanghai (2006).
It was an occasion for the city to rehearse and prepare for the 2022 Asian Games and to showcase the city and its level of service to visitors and a much wider audience in front of the television.
At the closing ceremony, the mascot “Jelly,” a blue-gray jellyfish with goggles presented to the world by triple Olympic Champion Sun during the opening, was handed to a child swimmer from Hangzhou Chen Jinglun Sports School.
The swimming pool at the school used to be the training base for many Hangzhou-born world champions including Sun, the first Chinese Olympic swimming gold medalist, gold medalist at 2012 London Olympics Ye Shiwen, and gold medalist at the 2015 Kazan World Aquatics Championships Fu Yuanhui.
The championships took place from December 11 to 16 and attracted nearly 1,000 athletes from 178 countries. Nine world records and 22 match records were broken. Over 450 reporters from around the world were at the event.
“Very positive. The FINA family had a memorable time in a dynamic and modern city. Our national federations, their athletes, coaches and officials worked and competed in an outstanding venue. They were supported by an immense crowd,” Julio Maglione, FINA’s president, told a press conference on December 16.
The venue was designed to be a tennis stadium but was temporarily revamped to accommodate an international swimming competition.
The 10,000-seat arena is composed of 24 entwined steel petals on its exterior and eight steel petals on the roof, which can be opened when needed.
To save costs and ensure minimum alterations to the original design, the warm-up pool was built outside as a temporary structure together with locker rooms. A removable stainless steel 25-meter by 25-meter competition pool was shipped from Italy three months ahead of the event and placed on top of the tennis court.
The temperature inside needed to be maintained at 26 degrees Celsius, 8 degrees higher than in a tennis stadium, so a floor heating system was installed in the pool deck.
The seating area remained unchanged and the audience was able to see the races from any angle, including both ends of the pool.
“I’ve never seen the 25m (championships) before. It’s a great job that they’ve put a swimming pool inside a tennis court,” Alan Adams, who worked at the organization committee’s information service center, told Shanghai Daily.
Adams, a sports journalist who has covered eight Olympic Games and three Asian Games, was hired to train staff at the center to work on press releases which would later be updated on the event’s website in Chinese and English.
The press room was on the first floor of the venue, next to the mixed zone where athletes exit and are interviewed. It had 136 workstations with computer connections and televisions showing live broadcasts.
Adams said he was most impressed by the quality of the volunteers. “I have many volunteers working for me. They did an amazing job. They have great language skills, which helped us a lot at the mixed zone.”
More than 1,500 volunteers took part in the championships, most of them university students.
“The preparation work started early, since March this year. We received over 5,000 applications when the recruitment opened in September 2018. Candidates must have previous volunteering experiences, and also a competency in English,” said Xiang Ying of the Hangzhou Voluntary Service Instruction Center, who led the team of press room volunteers.
The volunteers included 19 native speakers in Polish, Russian, Korean and Malaysian.
Compared to other volunteering work, Xiang said the championships required more professional skills and longer hours. “The races (heats and finals) are held either early in morning or late at night. So our volunteers have to arrive earlier (than the swimmers) and stay even after all races are over,” Xiang said.
Chen Dian, a volunteer at the doping control station, said she was among the last to leave the venue every day. She and her colleagues accompanied and assisted the athletes to do their drug tests after the races.
“Athletes who break records at the heats or those who receive medals in the finals need to be tested by their urine and blood samples. Most of the work is done in the afternoon and evening, until around 11 and 12 at night,” Chen said.
