>World trade to fall by up to 32%
WTO:全球贸易将跌13-32%

World trade is expected to fall by between 13% and 32% in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts normal economic activity and life around the world, the World Trade Organization (WTO) said Wednesday in its latest annual Trade Statistics and Outlook Report.
世界贸易组织8日在其最新发布的年度《全球贸易数据与展望》报告中表示,由于新冠肺炎大流行扰乱全球正常经济活动和生活,今年全球贸易将缩水13%到32%。

The WTO added that the decline would likely exceed the trade slump brought on by the global financial crisis of 2008-09.
世贸组织还称,此次贸易下降幅度可能会超过2008-09年全球金融危机带来的贸易下滑。

According to the report, estimates of the expected recovery in 2021 are equally uncertain, with outcomes depending largely on the duration of the outbreak and the effectiveness of the policy responses.
报告称,对2021年贸易恢复的预期也同样存在不确定,其结果在很大程度上取决于疫情的持续时间和政策反应的有效性。

"The immediate goal is to bring the pandemic under control and mitigate the economic damage to people, companies and countries. But policymakers must start planning for the aftermath of the pandemic," said WTO Director-General Roberto Azevedo.
世贸组织总干事阿泽维多表示,目前首要目标是控制疫情,减轻疫情对民众、企业和国家的经济损害,但政策制定者们必须同时开始为后疫情时期作规划。

Azevedo underlined that "if countries work together, we will see a much faster recovery than if each country acts alone."
阿泽维多强调,如果各国共同努力,我们将看到比每个国家单独行动更快的复苏。

>Sanders quits presidency campaign
桑德斯退选为拜登让路

Bernie Sanders announced on Wednesday he is dropping out of the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, leaving former vice-president Joe Biden as the party's nominee against President Donald Trump in November.
伯尼·桑德斯8日宣布退出美民主党总统候选人角逐,使前副总统乔.拜登成为民主党总统候选人,他将在11月大选中挑战现任总统特朗普。

Speaking from Burlington, Vermont, Sanders announced his "very difficult and painful decision" in a live streamed address to supporters.
桑德斯在佛蒙特州伯灵顿市对支持者发表直播讲话时宣布了这个"非常艰难和痛苦的决定"。

"I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour," Sanders said.
桑德斯表示:"从良心上说,我无法继续无望获胜的竞选,这样反而会干扰我们所有人在这个艰难时刻需要投入的重要工作。"

Sanders had a strong performance in the first three states that held primaries in February. It appeared he was unstoppable until the last day of February when Biden surged to a blowout victory in South Carolina.
桑德斯在2月的初选中表现良好,一举拿下前三个州,看似势不可挡,直到2月的最后一天,拜登在南卡罗来纳州大获全胜,强势逆袭。

Biden acknowledged that he still needs to gain support from Sanders' followers, and said they are "more than welcome" and "needed" for him to defeat Trump in November.
拜登承认,他仍需要获得桑德斯追随者的支持,并表示"非常欢迎"和"需要"他们帮助自己在11月击败特朗普。

>5G-enabled messaging unveiled
三大运营商合推5G消息

China's big three telecom carriers unveiled a new 5G-enabled messaging service on Wednesday, which analysts said is likely to open a new era for social networking.
我国三大电信运营商8日宣布启动一种新的5G赋能的消息服务,分析人士称,5G消息可能令社交网络进入全新时代。

中国移动、中国联通和中国电信联合发布的《5G消息白皮书》中明确了邀请智能手机制造商支持这种服务的技术细节。

5G消息,其技术名称为"富媒体通信/富通信服务",旨在用一个更加丰富的体系取代现有的短信服务,可以提供通讯录查询以及通话时多媒体传输。

With the new message service, for instance, consumers don't have to download a variety of mobile apps.

They can directly buy train tickets and book flights by sending messages.
他们可以通过发送消息直接购买火车票或预订机票。

Ma Jihua, an independent telecom analyst, said the new 5G-powered messaging service, if properly promoted, will usher in a new era of social networking, and erode the social networking business of Tencent Holdings.
独立电信分析师马继华表示,新的5G赋能的消息服务如果推广成功,将引领社交媒体新时代,对腾讯控股的社交网络业务造成冲击。
