Nobel laureate Mo Yan and a dozen winners of the presti

gious Luxun and Maodun literature prizes, including Ge Fei, A Lai and Su Tong, together

with a group of renowned Shanxi writers and poets gathered that week to discuss literary depictions of the countryside.

The village has a literary tradition which dates back to the mid-20th century, when a new Chin

ese modern literary genre shanyaodan, a nickname for a potato that’s popular in North China, emerged.

Authors who follow the shanyaodan school of writing such as Zhao Shuli, Ma Feng and Xi

Rong were all living in the Shanxi countryside, where their work centered around rural life there.

Many of Ma’s works in particular were written in Jiajiazhuang, where he witnessed the changes to the village broug

ht about by the agricultural cooperatives during the 1950s after moving to work in Fenyang.

The move is a part of China’s decades-long efforts to purs

ue the set course of opening-up, so as to maintain domestic growth momentum and contribute more to the world economy.

China will step up efforts to diversify export markets and actively expand im

ports, Li said. To better attract foreign investment, China will further relax controls over market access, shorten the ne

gative list for foreign investment, and permit wholly foreign funded enterprises to operate in more sectors, Li added.

The country will further align the policies with international trade rules, enhance policy transparency and consistency in imple

mentation, and create a fair market environment where Chinese and foreign companies are treated equally, Li said.

Li said China will continue to push forward China-US trade negotiations. The co

untry is committed to mutually beneficial cooperation and aiming to settle trade disputes through discussions in a

n equal manner. He stressed the country is resolute in safeguarding its lawful rights and interests.

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”
