BEIJING, June 13 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.

TARIFFS

China's trade promotion body has expressed strong opposition to the plan of the European Union (EU) to add duties on imports of Chinese electric vehicles (EVs), describing it as "notably unfair" and "typical double standards."

The European Commission (EC) on Wednesday proposed the provisional additional tariffs ranging from 17.4 to 38.1 percent in its preliminary ruling on anti-subsidy probe into Chinese EVs.

A spokesperson with the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade said Thursday the EC persisted in imposing the tariffs in disregard of the fact that the European EV industry actually came to no harm, did not ask for any investigation, and has even repeatedly voiced objections.

CHANG'E-6

A recent photo of the Chinese Chang'e-6 probe's lander-ascender combination on the far side of the moon has captured a historic moment in human lunar exploration.

The photograph was taken by a mini rover that was carried to the moon by the Chang'e-6 mission.

The probe has collected samples from the moon's far side and is currently in lunar orbit, awaiting the optimal time for its return journey.

INTELLIGENCE EXPO

The 2024 World Intelligence Expo, scheduled to be held in Tianjin from June 20 to 23, aims to aggregate AI-related resources both nationwide and worldwide, according to a news conference on Wednesday.

The expo will be co-hosted by north China's Tianjin Municipality and southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, combining two events formerly known as the World Intelligence Congress in Tianjin and the Smart China Expo in Chongqing.

The AI event aims to create a global platform for academic innovation, exhibitions, competitions and investment promotion in the field of intelligent technology. It will attract leading enterprises, renowned research institutions and top universities. Enditem
