The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

“It looks like it’s going to be a big win for the Brexit

Party,” Farage told reporters in Southampton in southern E

ngland where vote tallies from across the southeast region were being collated.

“The intelligence I get is that the Brexit party is doing pretty well,” sa

id Farage, who headed one of the two Brexit campaigns in the 2016 referendum.

While May was forced to delay Brexit after agreeing a deal that the British parliament and much of her party reject

ed, the Labour Party has voiced both support for another referendum and a promise to honour the result of the 2016 vote.

The impact of such a severe election drubbing for the major parties is

unclear though potential successors to May are calling for a more decisive Brexit, while L

abour leader Jeremy Corbyn is under pressure to openly support another referendum.

 big data industry and is willing to share opportunities of the digital economy’s development with other countries and jointly explore new

and store 27.8 percent of global online data by 2025, up from 23.4 percent last year, according to a r

eport by market researcher International Data Corp and data storage firm Seagate.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said th

at from medicine to transportation to farming, big data presents the world with a re

markable tool to advance global progress, but with that opportunity also comes risk.
