China starts harvest season with driverless harvesters

CGTN– May 28, 2022

In China’s Anhui Province, Huaiyuan River Bay area in Huaiyuan County, the harvesting of 120,000 hectares of wheat is underway. The six large combine harvesters can harvest 13 to 20 hectares per day. Considering that operators from other cities may reduce production due to the coronavirus, Huaiyuan County has also set up green channels to provide full support. In Bozhou City, also in Anhui Province, a driverless wheat harvesters’ competition was held. The machines can automatically harvest, turn and avoid obstacles, making the harvest smarter, more efficient and economical. #harvest #season #driverless #operation #china #country #anhui #wheat #green #bozhou #turn #county #anhui #huaiyuan #technology #intelligent #unmanned For more: https://www.cgtn.com/video

Biden Says U.S. Will Defend Taiwan as China Accuses U.S. of Forming “ Indo-Pacific Version of NATO”

Democracy Now! – May 24, 2022

President Biden is on his first trip to Asia as president to meet with other leaders from the “Quad” — Japan, India and Australia — as part of efforts to counter China’s growing power in the region. During the trip, Biden has contradicted longstanding U.S. policy of “strategic ambiguity” on Taiwan by vowing to defend it militarily if China attacks. “This idea that the United States is obligated to come to the defense of Taiwan if it [China] attacked, is simply not U.S. policy,” says Michael Swaine, director of the Quincy Institute’s East Asia program. Swaine says the official U.S.-China policy on Taiwan — which prioritizes peaceful unification over military force — has been subtly weakened by both sides, and “President Biden’s recent comment weakens it even further.”
