From construction materials to energy supply, a zero-carbon measures are fully implemented in more than 20 links.

This practice aligns with the green and low-carbon concept of the International Horticultural Exposition," said Wang Pu, leader of the steel structure for the International Horticultural Exposition 2024 project at China MCC5 Group Corp. Ltd.

The main venue, designed in the shape of three lotus petals, not only boasts an elegant form but also has the capability to collect and recycle rainwater.

"It is equipped with a system that collects rainwater, which converges in the center before draining into underground tubes for recycling. The annual volume of pooled rainwater could reach 2,500 tons," said Tang Donghu, director of electromechanical production for the International Horticultural Exposition 2024 project, China Construction Eighth Engineering Division. Corp. LTD.

The expo, slated to run from April 26 to October 28, will showcase diverse gardening cultures from China and around the world.

A Chinese defense spokesperson Friday said China will take all necessary countermeasures against the Philippines' dangerous and escalating acts.

Zhang Xiaogang, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense, made the remarks when responding to a media question about the recent moves by the Philippine side in areas of Ren'ai Jiao (Reef) and Xianbin Jiao.

"Nansha Qundao (Nansha Islands), including Ren'ai Jiao and Xianbin Jiao, is inherent territory of China, and it is legitimate and reasonable for the Chinese side to carry out law enforcement activities in waters under its jurisdiction. China has repeatedly made clear its principled position on this. In fact, the Philippine side broke its promises on the Ren'ai Jiao issue, played with fire and made provocations to escalate tension. Such behavior is like a thief crying 'stop thief'. It has even cooked up and spread disinformation about Xianbin Jiao in an attempt to cover up its infringements and provocations. Such behavior fully shows that the Philippine side is undoubtedly the one that undermines peace and creates instability. The Chinese side has remained highly vigilant and will continue to take all necessary countermeasures against the dangerous and escalating acts of the Philippine side," said the spokesperson.
