China Daily (Hong Kong) - - PAGE TWO -

With a speed of 603 kilo­me­ters an hour, Ja­pan’s new­est ma­glev train will be the fastest in the world when it be­gins ser­vices be­tween Tokyo and Nagoya in 2027.

Fear of miss­ing out, or FoMO, is a per­va­sive ap­pre­hen­sion that others might be hav­ing re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ences from which one is ab­sent. This so­cial angst is char­ac­ter­ized by a desire to stay con­tin­u­ally con­nected with what others are do­ing.

China has be­come the big­gest trad­ing part­ner of Rus­sia, and an im­por­tant source of for­eign in­vest­ment in the coun­try, while Rus­sia is one of China’s main sources of en­ergy and high tech­nol­ogy.

Last year, China im­ported more than 40 mil­lion met­ric tons of crude oil from Rus­sia, a 28 per­cent in­crease from the pre­vi­ous year.

China’s im­ports of Rus­sian in­dus­trial equip­ment and high-tech prod­ucts grew by more than 32 per­cent dur­ing the same pe­riod.

This year marks the 15th an­niver­sary of the sign­ing of the Treaty of Good-Neigh­bor­li­ness and Friendly Co­op­er­a­tion be­tween China and Rus­sia, and the 20th an­niver­sary of the es­tab­lish­ment of a strate­gic part­ner­ship be­tween the two na­tions.

China and Rus­sia have ac­tively pro­moted co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous fields.

Dur­ing Pre­mier Li Ke­qiang’s re­cent of­fi­cial visit to Rus­sia, the two sides vowed to en­hance co­op­er­a­tion.

They also agreed to align China’s Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive with the Rus­sian-led Eurasian Eco­nomic Union.

The two coun­tries al­ready work closely in a num­ber of fields, in­clud­ing in­vest­ment, en­ergy, high­speed rail­way con­struc­tion, avi­a­tion and in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment.

The con­struc­tion of the east­ern sec­tion of the Chi­naRus­sia nat­u­ral gas pipe­line, with the first de­liv­er­ies of gas sched­uled for 2018, is among the most im­por­tant projects aimed at bol­ster­ing co­op­er­a­tion be­tween China and Rus­sia.
