Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Timezones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (for example Newfoundland Standard Timeis UTC−03:30, NepalStandard Timeis UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Timeis UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones . This also creates a permanent daylight saving time effect

China Standard Time
The TIME IN CHINA follows a single standard time offset of UTC+08:00 (eight hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time ), despite China spanning five geographical time zones . The official national standard time is called _ Beijing Time_ (Chinese : 北京时间) domestically and _ China Standard Time_ (CST) internationally. Daylight saving time has not been observed since 1991. The special administrative regions (SARs) maintain their own time authorities, with standards called _ Hong Kong Time _ (香港時間) and _ Macau Standard Time_ (澳門標準時間). These have been equivalent to Beijing time since 1992. In addition, a second time standard is used in Xinjiang , two hours less than the Beijing Time (UTC+06:00 ), which is called _Ürümqi Time_ (乌鲁木齐时间) or _ Xinjiang Time_ (新疆时间).

Telephone Numbering Plan
A TELEPHONE NUMBERING PLAN is a type of numbering scheme used in telecommunication to assign telephone numbers to subscriber telephones or other telephony endpoints. Telephone numbers are the addresses of participants in a telephone network, reachable by a system of destination code routing. Telephone numbering plans are defined in each of administrative regions of the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and they are also present in private telephone networks. Numbering plans may follow a variety of design strategies which have often arisen from the historical evolution of individual telephone networks and local requirements. A broad division is commonly recognized, distinguishing open numbering plans and closed numbering plans. A closed numbering plan imposes a fixed number of digits assigned to every telephone, while an open numbering plan features a variable length of telephone numbers assigned to stations. An open plan permits the expansion of the total numbering capacity of the plan by addition of more digits to a subset of numbers. Many numbering plans subdivide their territory of service into geographic regions designated by a special prefix, often called AREA CODE, which is a set of digits forming the most-significant part of the dialing sequence to reach a telephone subscriber

Vehicle Registration Plates Of China
CHINA, officially the PEOPLE\\'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA issues vehicles licence plates (Chinese : 牌照; pinyin : _pái zhào_) at its Vehicle Management Offices, under the administration of the Ministry of Public Security. Hong Kong and Macau , both of which are Special Administrative Regions , issue their own licence plates, a legacy of when they were under British and Portuguese administration. Vehicles from Hong Kong and Macau are required to apply for licence plates, usually from Guangdong , to travel on roads in Mainland China . Vehicles from Mainland China have to apply for Hong Kong or Macau licence plates to enter those territories. Taiwan , on the other hand, also has plates administered by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MoTC) in the Republic of China . The number of registered cars, buses, vans, and trucks on the road in China reached 62 million in 2009, and is expected to exceed 200 million by 2020. The font used on the plates were said to be modified from the East Asian gothic typeface , but speculations exist as the numbers and letters somewhat bear similarity with the German font DIN 1451

Hanyu Pinyin
PINYIN, or HàNYǔ PīNYīN, is the official romanization system for Standard Chinese in mainland China , Malaysia , Singapore , and Taiwan . It is often used to teach Standard Chinese, which is normally written using Chinese characters . The system includes four diacritics denoting tones . Pinyin without tone marks is used to spell Chinese names and words in languages written with the Latin alphabet , and also in certain computer input methods to enter Chinese characters. The pinyin system was developed in the 1950s by many linguists, including Zhou Youguang , based on earlier forms of romanization of Chinese . It was published by the Chinese government in 1958 and revised several times. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) adopted pinyin as an international standard in 1982, followed by the United Nations in 1986. The system was adopted as the official standard in Taiwan in 2009, where it is used for romanization alone (in part to make areas more English-friendly) rather than for educational and computer-input purposes. The word _Hànyǔ_ (simplified Chinese : 汉语; traditional Chinese : 漢語) means the spoken language of the Han people . _Pīnyīn_ (拼音) literally means "spelled sounds"
