LHASA, July 21 (Xinhua) -- A center for restoring ancient Tibetan books was inaugurated in Lhasa, capital of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region on Tuesday.
China has more than one million ancient Tibetan books, two-thirds of which are in Tibet. These books are scattered in temples, local libraries, research centers, museums as well as among the people.
Many of these ancient books have been damaged and are in dire need of restoration and protection.
Nyima Cering, head of the regional culture department, said Tibet has launched an ancient book protection campaign since 2008, creating a leading team and an expert committee to help with the work.
So far, the regional government has allocated a total of more than 5 million yuan (about 805,000 U.S. dollars) to support the survey and protection of ancient Tibetan books.
"Ancient Tibetan books are symbols of the industrious and intelligent Tibetan people through the centuries. They also play an important part of the multi-culture of the Chinese nation," said Painba Cering, vice head of the Tibet regional library.
In the past, people used to repair damaged books using traditional methods, such as sewing books with thread or pasting pages with starch, which can lead to more damage to these vulnerable books, Painba Cering said.
The newly founded center will improve the restoration and protection of ancient Tibetan books, he said.
A 10-day ancient book restoration training workshop also opened on Tuesday, with 42 trainees from different monasteries and cultural relics protection departments across the region.
XI'AN, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese online retailer JD plans to roll out a drone that can carry packages weighing as much as 200 kilograms for long-distance deliveries.
Developed by the Beijing-based company, the new drone VT1 with a hybrid gas-electric engine is 3.4 meters long and can cover a 200-kilometer radius, according to JD.
JD said the new drone was in testing. The drone service will transport goods between distribution stations rather than to customers directly.
Xiao Jun, vice president of JD, said the VT1 could carry heavier parcels and travel over a longer time. The drones will not be affected by traffic congestion and can improve delivery efficiency and save logistic costs.
JD started conducting trial deliveries using drones in 2016. Smaller drones are being used in the city of Xi'an in Shaanxi Province and the city of Suqian in Jiangsu Province.
From June to July 31, the delivery drones, which can carry items weighing between 15 kg and 30 kg, have flown more than 800 times and traveled over 4,000 km in Xi'an, according to the company.
JD announced in May that it planned to invest 20.5 billion yuan (3 billion U.S. dollars) over the next five years to build a logistics hub in Xi'an.
