BEIJING, March 20 (Xinhua) -- China is on track for more balanced and sustainable development despite lower growth, according to head of Swedish manufacturing giant Volvo Group.

"I am optimistic on the Chinese economy, especially in a longer-term perspective. There might be some economic consequences as growth rate goes down in the short term, but in the long run we can make the society much more resilient, sustainable and inclusive," Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO of Volvo Group, told Xinhua on the sidelines of the 2017 China Development Forum (CDF).

This is the second time that Lundstedt has attended the annual CDF, and despite the pervasive pessimistic outlook on China's growth for 2016, he was still upbeat at the time.

"China is going through a transition, which is necessary because you cannot continue on the old path. But if you think about the history and the heritage of China in the long run, people will not remember the year 2016 but remember what bold actions China has taken to build the society for the future," he said.

Lundstedt said that emerging business models and solutions that could survive in the long run would not only be economically beneficial, but also environmentally friendly, socially inclusive and long-sighted.

This is why Volvo has been promoting development of sustainable transport, which in Lundstedt's eyes, means transport that is developed with economic considerations going hand in hand with other important factors, including environmental protection and social development.

"While working on developing themselves via means like digitalization, transport infrastructure manufacturers also have to put themselves in the context of a lifecycle and make transformation throughout the whole value chain to move from product-based, inside-out-strategy-based companies to develop sustainable solutions, which will influence their long-term competitiveness," Lundstedt said.

Lundstedt said that China was moving in the right direction with many transport innovations, not only technically, but also systems, such as the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, which aims to connect different continents to enjoy a better shared future.

Regional infrastructure development creates win-win outcomes for all participating countries, and improving transportation networks in the region will bring gains through increased market access, reduced trade costs and more efficient energy use and production, according to a white paper released by Volvo last year.

The Volvo Group has been in China for 25 years, and China has become its second "home market" after, Volvo's Global Headquarters, Sweden. It has already participated in projects along the Belt and Road such as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

"China's Belt and Road Initiative is very important for all the countries related, not only for short-term opportunities in project participation, but the real interest for all is the platform and future connections between countries along the initiative," Lundstedt said.

LONDON, June 6 (Xinhua)-- Plant embryos have cells that function as a brain, a study published Tuesday by scientists at the University of Birmingham has revealed The group of brain cells can assess environmental conditions and dictate when seeds will germinate Buy Cheap Mens Air Jordan 11 Low IE Fire Red White Fire Red-Black 919712-101 Clearance , the researchers say.

"A plant's decision about when to germinate is one of the most important it will make during its life. Too soon, and the plant may be damaged by harsh winter conditions; too late, and it may be outcompeted by other Best Mens Air Jordan 6 UNC Black University Blue 384664-006 Outlet Restock , more precocious plants," said the Birmingham researchers in a study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

The Birmingham scientists have shown that this trade-off between speed and accuracy is controlled by a small group of cells within the plant embryo that operate in similar way to the human brain.

The "decision-making center" in a plant called Arabidopsis, or thale cress Mens Air Jordan 11 Chicago Gym Red Black White 378037-623 For Sale , contains two types of cell, one that promotes seed dormancy, and one that promotes germination Discount Mens Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Los Primeros AH7739-001 Sale , the study revealed.

"These two groups of cells communicate with each other by moving hormones, an analogous mechanism to that employed by our own brains when we decide whether or not to move," their study added.

The scientists used mathematical modelling to show that communication between the separated elements controls the plant's sensitivity to its environment.

Following this theory Wholesale Mens Air Jordan 13 Wheat Golden Harvest Online Outlet , they used a mutant plant where cells were more chemically linked -- essentially enhancing communication between circuit elements -- to show that germination timing depends on these intra-region signals.

Professor George Bassel from the School of Biosciences at the University of Birmingham, said: "Our work reveals a crucial separation between the components within a plant decision-making centre.

"In the human brain, this separation is thought to introduce a time delay Mens Air Jordan 13 Altitude Retro Black Altitude Green 414571-042 Sale , smoothing out noisy signals from the environment and increasing the accuracy with which we make decisions.

"The separation of these parts in the seed 'brain' also appears to be central to how it functions."

Dr Iain Johnston, a bio-mathematician from the university, involved in the study Discount Mens Air Jordan 13 GS Love & Respect Pack Black Clearance Sale , added: "The separation of circuit elements allows a wider palette of responses to environmental stimuli.

"It's like the difference between reading one critic's review of a film four times over, or amalgamating four different critics' views before deciding to go to the cinema."
