BEIJING, March 25 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese court has ruled in favor of Apple Inc. in design patent disputes between it and a domestic phone-maker, overturning a ban on selling iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones in China.

Last May, a Beijing patent regulator ordered Apple's Chinese subsidiary and a local retailer Zoomflight to stop selling the said phones after Shenzhen Baili Marketing services Co. (Shenzhen Baili) lodged a complaint to it, claiming that the patent for the design of its mobile phone 100c was being infringed upon by the iPhone sales.

Apple and Zoomflight took the Beijing Intellectual Property Office's banning order to court.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court on Friday revoked the ban, saying Apple and Zoomflight did not violate Shenzhen Baili's design patent for 100c phones.

The court ruled that the regulator did not follow due procedures in ordering the ban while there is no sufficient proof to claim the designs constitute violation of intellectual property rights.

Representatives of Beijing Intellectual Property Office and Shenzhen Baili said they would take time to decide whether to appeal the ruling.

In another related ruling, the same court denied a request by Apple to demand stripping Shenzhen Baili of its design patent for 100c phones. Apple first filed the request to the Patent Reexamination Board of State Intellectual Property Office. The board rejected the request, but Apple lodged a lawsuit against the rejection to court.

The Beijing Intellectual Property Court on Friday ruled to maintain the board's decision. It remains not immediately clear if Apple will appeal.

Apple phones are popular among China's urban young people, but the sale faces stiff competition from domestic phone makers, which produce a wider range of affordable and quality smart phones.

Last year, three domestic brands -- OPPO, Huawei and Vivo -- outperformed Apple as China's top selling phone brands, according to a report by the International Data Corporation.

OPPO sold 78.4 million handsets in China last year, tailed by Huawei with 76.6 million units.

BEIJING, March 14 (Xinhua) -- China's value-added industrial output, an important economic indicator, expanded 6.3 percent year on year in the first two months, compared with the 6-percent increase for December of 2016, official data showed Tuesday.

The 6.3-percent growth rose from the 5.4-percent increase in the Jan.-Feb. period of 2016. It was also higher than the 6-percent annual gain seen in 2016, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).

Industrial output, officially called industrial value added, is an important economic indicator. It is used to measure the activity of designated large enterprises with annual turnover of at least 20 million yuan (2.9 million U.S. dollars).

On a monthly basis, industrial production expanded 0.6 percent in February, the data showed.

HARARE nike cortez leather sale , Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwe has requested for assistance from the African Development Bank (AfDB) to clear its 7 billion U.S. dollars external debt which has prevented it from accessing fresh loans from multilateral financial institutions.

Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa made the request Monday during a meeting with the visiting delegation of AfDB executive directors who are on week-long annual field visit to assess projects being funded by the regional bank in the country.

"In our meeting I have emphasized that the AfDB should play a leading role in securing clearance of areas that we have accumulated with multilateral creditors, alongside the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund nike cortez nylon sale ," the minister said.

Zimbabwe owes the World Bank 1 billion U.S. dollars, the IMF 142 million dollars and 566 million U.S. dollars to the AfDB.

The debt-ridden country also owes the Paris Club 3.09 billion dollars and 350 million to the European Investment Bank.

Chinamasa said the huge external debt had become a major impediment to the country's efforts to access concessionary borrowing from the multilateral lenders.

"I have tried to appeal to the bank to come up with a mechanism that will help us clear those areas. I am aware that they have done it with respect to other countries and my appeal to them is that they should bend over backwards to assist us so that we become part of the global economy nike cortez kenny sale ," Chinamasa said.

The minister also appealed to the regional bank to support the country's private sector, saying the move would help government to build capacity to pay its external arrears.

AfDB executive director and head of delegation Alieu Momodou Ngum said they also discussed with the finance minister how the regional bank can assist Zimbabwe to intensify re-engagement with the international community to unlock funding to accelerate economic development.

He said the AfDB was committed to assisting Zimbabwe's economic recovery as shown by its continued support to the private sector despite the country owing it money.

"The AfDB as an African bank has demonstrated that it is a trusted and dependable partner of Zimbabwe. Even during the crisis we were here and with limited resources we have provided emergency assistance in critical areas of the economy nike cortez classic nylon sale ," said Momodou Ngum.

The AfDB has invested 195 million in support of economic programs in Zimbabwe since 2011.
