    Phone roaming charges

    The country’s three telecom carriers, China Mobile Communications, China United Network Communications Group and China Telecommunications Corp., announced steps to scrap domestic long-distance and roaming charges from October 1, 2017, a move to drive forward industrial transformation* and boost the upgrading and adjustment of real economy.

    Li Yue, president of China Mobile, the country’s largest telecom operator, said the domestic roaming charges account for 8 to 10 percent of its total revenue, removal of such fees will have an influence on the company.

    GDP target

    China has set its GDP growth target at around 6.5 percent for 2017, compared with a target range of 6.5-7 percent last year, a government work report said on Sunday.

    “[China will] pursue better results in actual economic work,” according to the report delivered by Premier Li Keqiang at the opening meeting of the annual session of China’s top legislature, the National People’s Congress, in Beijing. This closely watched target is a 25-year low, down from last year’s actual growth of 6.7 percent.

    Homeschooling

    Homeschooling should not replace national compulsory* education, the Chinese Ministry of Education said in a notice just before the start of the new semester.

    The ministry did not specify that it would take any action against parents who insisted on educating their children at home. By February 2016, some 6,000 Chinese children were being home-educated, and another 50,000 parents intended to try it out, the Workers’ Daily reported on Friday, citing Wang Jiajia, a researcher at the 21st Century Education Research Institute.

    Antique bronze ware

    Chinese archaeologists* discovered a large deposit of bronze items in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China’s Sichuan Province, when excavating* a tomb cluster dating between the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.) and the Warring States Period (475-221 B.C.).

    Archaeologists have excavated 180 tombs in an area the size of two soccer fields, from which 540 bronze ware items were unearthed.(SD-Agencies)
