“In April this year, the Chinese economy was hit by the coronavirus outbreak, but the impact is short-lived. In the long term, we will see better results. The general trend of transformation, modernization and high-quality development of our economy has remained unchanged.”
Thus, in April, the total retail sales amounted to almost 3 trillion yuan, and imports and exports exceeded this amount. Despite the pandemic, China's food and energy industries have managed to maintain growth. The extraction of coal, oil and natural gas has increased. Steel production reached 110 million tons, and coal - 360 million tons.
Fu Linghui, Spokesperson for China National Bureau of Statistics:
“Since the beginning of this year, the country has provided enhanced financial support for the real sector of the economy: reducing taxes and fees, postponing the payment of social security contributions and issuing preferential loans. This helped solve the problems of many enterprises and stabilize the economy.”
The official noted that in the first four months, the value added of industrial enterprises with annual sales revenue of 20 million yuan or more, increased by 4% year-on-year, while investment in fixed assets and total imports and exports increased by almost 7 and 8 percent, respectively.

The port of Shanghai is also increasing cargo transportation via water channels and rivers. This method of delivery allows companies to avoid delays due to possible traffic congestion.
York Pan, co-founder and CEO of a technology company:
“A very large amount of cargo is currently transported by waterways. Traffic on roads cannot be absolutely uninterrupted, so carriers have turned their attention to rivers and canals. In this regard, we launched a project to switch from land to water transport. This reduced the load on highways."
In the meantime, the Shanghai airlines have taken their planes back to the runways. However, only domestic flights are open so far. On May 16, after a long downtime, the first airliner of the local carrier Junyao Airlines took off on the Shanghai-Longyan route. The company said it scheduled three flights a week from Shanghai to Fujian province. Other routes will gradually return to the schedule.
Restrictions on the number of passengers are still in force. As of today, the allowable occupancy of the aircraft is no more than 40 percent.

Smart silkworm factories created in China

Xie Yun, agricultural technician:
“When the control system detects that the room temperature or humidity is disturbed, it automatically makes adjustments. Also, in order to create a suitable environment for the growth of silkworms, a ventilation system begins to work in poorly ventilated rooms. It also eases the burden on farmers.”
Automated factories help farmers earn more money.
Lu Zhou, Administration Officer Qianjiang District:
“Once the smart silkworm factories were built, we took control of production costs. In one harvesting season, we can get 10-15 percent more cocoons than before. Sericulture farmers earn at least 10 percent more income than before.”
Qianjiang District, which has already built a total of eight smart manufacturing factories silkworm, continues to work on the further development of its industry, applying scientific and technical achievements.
