As the social sector plays a crucial role in the dev

elopment and popularization of sports, including winter sports, we sh

ould advocate and support its growth. Since the winter sports industry is part of the gene

ral sports industry, the expansion of the former automatically means the expansion of the latter.

Some local governments have used winning the bid to host the 2022 Winter Games as an in

spiration to popularize winter sports among children and youths. For example, some departments have

hosted various theme activities to spread knowledge about and attract more people to winter sports.

Since advancement in winter sports also signifies a country’s comprehensive sports s

trength, we should make concerted efforts to develop winter sports in China.

The project will be beneficial to both China and Cambodia, Qian said.

“Many Chinese companies go overseas to expand their businesses. However, because of a la

Some Chinese companies have decided to join the investment in the ne

Messi shines as Barca secure their 8th league title in year

Leo Messi scored the only goal of the game as FC Barcelona

beat Levante 1-0 to assure the 2018-19 Liga Santander title on Saturday night.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde again rotated his starting 11 for the game and Messi spent the fir

st 45 minutes watching from the sidelines. Barca controlled the first half with Luis Suarez and Philippe Cou

tinho testing Levante keeper Aitor Fernandez, who was his side’s best player in the opening 45 minutes.

Despite Barca’s dominance, they were unable to open the scorin

g and Messi replaced Coutinho at the start of the second half to try and find a way through.

He was on target for the 34th time in the league this season in the 62n

d minute as he fired home a left foot shot following a headed pass from Arturo Vidal.

Barca has won 26 league titles in Spain, compared to

 33 for Real Madrid. But Barca have won

eight of the last 11 leagues and 10 of the last 15 (all 10 with Messi in the squad).

Earlier in the day, second-placed Atletico Madrid won 1-0 at home over struggling Valladolid to delay Barca’s celebrations.

The only goal of the match came in the 66th minute when Valladolid’s Joaquin Fernandez put the ball into his own net, but

the visitors were convinced they should have had a penalty after Santiago Arias clearly handed the ball in his own area.

Referee Melero Lopez checked with the VAR but decided the handball was accidental.

Athletic Club Bilbao remains seventh after a 1-1 draw at home with Alaves in the Basque derby.

The Maputo-Katembe Bridge, opened in November after

The Maputo-Katembe Bridge, opened in November after

 four years of construction, is part of the Maputo Bridge and Link Roads project built by CRBC. It is 187 kilometers long and s

erves as an arterial highway that directly links Maputo to the border with South Africa, to the south.

CRBC mainly undertakes contracting, investment and infrastructure pro

jects, including roads, bridges, ports and railways, and has operations stretching ac

ross more than 60 countries and regions in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.

“China Road and Bridge Corporation has a wealth of experience in building bridges of the highest quality, including many brid

ges in China that presented even tougher challenges than the Maputo-Katembe Bridge,” Wang said.

Katembe rose, and industrial parks are being planned in the region,” Wang said. “So the bridge will deliver huge economic benefits.”

The project also benefits China. For example, as Mozambique is short of construction materials and equipment, the p

roject has driven the export of more than 70,000 metric tons of steel products and equipment worth $68 million from China.

Even though CRBC was no stranger to building bridges when it took

on the Maputo-Katembe project, particular difficulties were presented by the fact that

both countries have different evaluation systems and standards of construction, Wang said.

The bridge was designed to Chinese standards but subjected to local and European standards, and the company g

ot a German engineering services provider, Gauff, to oversee the project’s quality.
