He and his team carried out more than 800 surgeries la

st year, increasing from 21 surgeries in 2000, the first year he returned to Zhengzhou from Australia, he said.

Cheng hoped the schematic diagrams could make a contribution for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in the future.

Besides his persistence on drawing the schematic diagrams, he also keeps improving techniques for his surgeries.

He has been using the 8-0 sutures, the most delicate and fine surg

ical stitches for heart surgeries, ever since he came back to the hospital in 2000.

“For the anastomosis (or connection) of tiny coronary blood vessel in heart surgery, th

e 8-0 sutures can maintain better blood flow to the heart compared with other size of threads,” Cheng said.

This is a challenge for a surgeon because he has to be very gentle in the process when co

nnecting the blood vessels of 1.5-2.0mm with this kind of fine sutures, either not too loose or not too tight.

Cheng is one of the five surgeons who use this technique in almost every case of coronary bypass operation in China, according to Dahe Daily.

In a statement on May 16, Huawei said that losing acce

ss to US suppliers “will do significant economic harm to the US companies” and affect “tens of thousands of US jobs”. In total, US firm

s sold an estimated $11 billion worth of components to Huawei last year, according to earlier media reports.

“I’m not able to tell you exactly what the costs will be; it differs from company to company,” said Allen.

“But clearly, from a corporate perspective, this Department

of Commerce action has created costs and has escalated the uncertainty quite a bit.”

Asked to comment on some voices in the US calling for the “decoupling” of the two countries, especially in the technology sect

or, Allen said both sides should pursue a playing field of “smart competition and engagement”, in which the

y play by a “common set of rules” that are mainly set by World Trade Organization obligations.

Lu Yong, vice-president of Huawei Technologies Co, said China’s d

igital economy has thrived on the basis that China has built the world’s largest 4G network.

“5G is not just a faster 4G. It will fundamentally reshape how enterprises run busine

sses and overhaul a wide range of industries by using data to create more value,” Lu said.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang reiterated on Monday that China

has been holding a consistent position in trade frictions with the United States, say

ing the differences should be resolved through friendly consultations and negotiations.

Lu’s remarks came as US President Donald Trump said in Japan that the US isn’t ready to make a trade deal with Ch

ina, but he’s leaving open the possibility that the two nations could strike an agreement someday.

Under the trade pressure, the world’s second-largest econo

onomy is accelerating restructuring reform and shifting from an export-dominated growth model to a more services-driven model, they added.

“The United States escalated trade tensions, but it cannot solve any problem. This causes volatility and sluggishness in global financial markets an

d hurts the global economy,” said Guo Shuqing, the People’s Bank of China’s Party secretary and also head of the China Banking and In

surance Regulatory Commission. His keynote speech was delivered by a commission spokesman at a forum on Saturday.

Impact on the Chinese economy will be very limited, said Guo. “Chinese fi

nancial markets, although they were excessively affected by trade tensions last year, are un

likely to be hit more dramatically going forward, as financial resilience is strengthening.”

The huge domestic consumer market in China will digest most of the un

salable exports, and many of China’s exports will also shift to other foreign markets. The US will con

said it would be adding Huawei and its 70 affiliates to an Entity List, which will ban the compan

y from buying parts and components of US companies without prior government approval.

Gao Feng, spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce, said at a briefing that the con

cept of national security “should not be used as a tool for trade protectionism”.

“China strongly opposes other countries imposing unilateral sanctions on Chinese entities,” Gao said.

He called on the US to stop its wrongful behavior and make more efforts to create conditions for normal international trade cooperation.

Huawei has been increasing its 5G commercial contracts worldwide, with more countries giving the com

pany a vote of confidence. But it is facing security allegations from the US, which Huawei has said are unfounded.
