As the world’s second-largest movie market with a grow

th rate of more than 9 percent three years in a row, the Chinese film market is extreme

ly open and inclusive with outstanding movies from around the world, fine works of Hollyw

ood in particular, being screened in China even before they are shown in other countries.

This shows China’s decision to open up its film market in the trough in 1995 was absolutely right. Since then the quota for Hollywo

od movies has been significantly raised from the initial 10 films a year. The opening up of the Chinese movie ma

rket proves that the more open and inclusive a film market is, the higher the number of good films it will generate o

wing to the active and beneficial exchanges with the world’s most advanced filmmaking countries.

The remarkable performance of about a dozen Chinese movies in recent

years makes it clear that well-made films that showcase Chinese culture and touch Chin

ese people’s hearts could not only become smash hits but also help spread Chinese culture. Which g

m are becoming increasingly fierce. We must

 adamantly safeguard the contemporary international order that was foun

ded by the UN and that brought about more than 70 years of general peace and rapid de

velopment after World War II. We must oppose a Cold War mentality and competitive rivalry, which go against the ti

itable and rational direction so as to realize a common prosperity and progress of humanity.

Third, we should be disseminators of Chinese civilization. Many pundits in the contemporary world think that China’s trad

itional culture contains important answers to resolving difficult problems of today’s world. A nation’s most profound spiritual

pursuits are deposited in its culture. China’s development path is rooted in its civilization and traditions.

Sourabh Gupta, resident senior fellow at the Washingto

ton-based Institute for China-American Studies, specifically praised the new Foreign Investm

ent Law-passed in March by China’s national legislature and effective in 2020-which he said is “a far

sighted piece of legislation” that “will firmly usher in a new round of reform and opening-up”.

“Strong measures to deal with political, regulatory and administrative noncompliance are envisaged. A robust wor

king mechanism to promptly address foreign businesses’ complaints is also envisaged,” said Gupta, who believes the p

rovisions are a big step in assuring foreign businesses that the playing field is leveled in China.

“It is the predictability, transparency and nondiscrimination bent of the law which, in my view, will lead to a significant inw

ard flow of foreign capital in key services and advanced manufacturing sectors,” he said.

However, the consumption structure has changed, with

service consumption accounting for 47.7 percent, up 1.4 percentage points year-on-year

Viewpoint Adding gene-editing in draft civil lawnceptual art

On Saturday, a new item was added to China’s draft civil law, which put

s all medical and scientific research related to human genes and embryos under stricter re

gulation. Two experts shared their views with China Daily’s Zhang Zhouxiang:

One major change this time is that embryos are clearly included in the draft regulation. Actually,

gene-editing of embryos deserves more attention than gene-editing of adults or children.

First, gene-editing of embryos might more easily get out of control an

d pose more risks to the society. The safety of gene-e

diting for embryos remains unknown and the availability limit of the technology needs to be confirmed.

The birth of the twin gene-edited babies in November 2018 sounded an alarming bell to all. If the embr

yos with edited genes are born, how should we protect their rights as citizens? Will they suffer fro

m discrimination? Who will be responsible if the gene-editing causes health problems?
