The China market is truly mobile-first-and it is thriving. According to a CNNIC (China Inter
yb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信net Network Information Center) report, there are 829 million netizens in China, 98.6 percent of whom acce
ss the internet using mobile devices. The support of emerging infrastructure-for example, the fast development of 4G and
5G in China, plus cheaper data packages and the greater accessibility of smartphones and apps for developing po

In addition, China is also a dominant leader in terms of both app downloads and in-app consumer spending. With its stro

Chinese tech heavyweight Lenovo Group Ltd saw its profit more than double in the quarter which ended in June, on the back of
a record high personal computer market share and strong performance in its internet data center business.yb亚博体育APP乌托邦
Its profit hit $162 million compared with an average estimate of $154 millio

12.51 billion, marking year-on-year growth for the eighth consecutive quarter.
Yang Yuanqing, chairman of Lenovo, said the Beijing-based company has cemented its positiyb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信
on as the world’s largest PC maker, grabbing a record 24.9 percent market share in the quarter.
“We have seen robust growth in market segments such as gaming PCs, and light
yb亚博体育APP乌托邦PCs, with related revenue jumping by about 30 percent year-on-year,” said Yang.
According to him, the company also performed quite well in Japan after it acquired a 5

“Our enhanced operational efficiency also contributed to our better profit
s,” Yang said. The company’s gross profit margin hit 16.4 percent in the quarter.
Lenovo’s strong performance came as global PC market rebounded from April toyb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信
June. Year-on-year growth during the quarter reached 4.4 percent, which was nota
bly higher than expected as the easing of supply shortages combined with looming trade tensions which increased theyb亚博体育APP乌托邦
demand, according to data from the market research company International Data Corp.

e normalization of China-US ties. Different translated versions were also published in 1979 and 2001.yb亚博体育APP乌托邦
The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree
yb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.
In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importayb亚博体育APP乌托邦
nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.
“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers
yb亚博体育APP乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in
ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com
munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.yb亚博体育APP乌托邦
According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi
bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.yb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信
The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.
Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h
yb亚博体育APP乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”
The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w
ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.yb亚博体育APP乌托邦
“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w
orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.yb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信
Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l
ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C
hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijinyb亚博体育APP乌托邦品茶微信
