Experts: Bilateral ties based on mutual benefits and comparative advantages

China and the United States need to establish a new balance of trade, finance and tech上海乌托邦品茶微信

nology cooperation, while avoiding a full-blown confrontation amid intensified tensions, experts said.

Their comments came as Washington threatened to impose an additional 10 percent tariff on $300上海乌托邦

billion worth of Chinese goods starting Sept 1, and labeled China “a currency manipulator”.

上海乌托邦品茶微信Huang Renwei, deputy director of Fudan Institute of Belt and Road & Global Governance, said China-US relations are unpre

cedentedly grim, because the ballast stone-their economic and trade ties-has been facing harsh confrontation.

“We should persist in building a new strategic balance between China and the US, a b上海乌托邦

alance in terms of trade, finance and technology,” Huang said during a seminar in Beijing.

Such a balance cannot be immediately established, but the goal won’t be c

上海乌托邦品茶微信hanged, Huang said. Only when those US hard-liners are greatly challenged, will they come to seek the new balance, he added.

Wang Wen, chief economist with China Export and Credit Insurance Corp, sa

id China-US economic and trade relations are based on comparative advantages and mu上海乌托邦

tual benefits, which bring huge benefits to companies and consumers of both countries.

上海乌托邦品茶微信The world’s two largest economies have been involved in addressing th

e trade tensions for the past year. Analysts said the US’ new tariff threat puts the

progress that both parties made in the past 12 rounds of high-level talks in vain.

China, along with oth 上海乌托邦ping countries, will ne

never allow the US to use a simple way to redefine other countries’ status. Existing WTO rule

 上海乌托邦品茶微信s need to be respected, while US unilateralism should be resolutely opposed,” Cheng said.

Speaking at the WTO General Council Meeting in March, Ambassador Zhang Xiangchen

 上海乌托邦of China said the core issue of development is not whether developing nation members are willing to make gre

ater contributions in future negotiations, but rather if they can have equal rights in negotiations.

Zhang said some developed-nation WTO members enjoy certain privileg 上海乌托邦

es in negotiations. If such structural imbalance continues, the only way for develo

ping members to partially remedy imbalances is through special and differential treatment, he said.

The Navy Day is celebrated across Russia to honor “all those who at different times in history served Russia faithfully and lo 上海乌托邦品茶微信

 上海乌托邦品茶微信”Our Navy ensures security of the country, its national interests and can properly repulse any aggressor,” Putin said.

This is guaranteed by unique weapons that Russia has, he said, “but the most import

Navy Flag) and devotion to the Fatherland remain a special and lofty duty for 上海乌托邦品茶微信

them. The sailors stand to the end when they perform their combat missions”, Putin said.

Boris Johnson has won the United Kingdom’s leadership election 92,153 vo

tes to 46,656, becoming prime minister and leader of the ruling Conservative Party.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Johnson had been widely expected to win ever since Theresa May, the nation’s outgoing prime minister, announced on May 24

that she was resigning following heavy criticism of her handling of the UK’s exit from the European Union.

上海乌托邦In a short but impassioned acceptance spee

ch, Johnson thanked his leadership opponent Jeremy Hunt and May. He said that the p

arty will “deliver Brexit, reunite the country and defeat” the leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn.

“That’s what we are going to do,” Johnson sai上海乌托邦品茶微信

d. “We know that we can do it, the people in our country know that we can do it, and I know that we will do it.”

Johnson and Hunt were the last people standing in the leadership battle that had initially involv

上海乌托邦ed 10 hopefuls and was ultimately decided in a postal vote open to the party’s 160,000 members.

Johnson takes over as party leader immediately and will be sworn in as prime minister on Wednesday.

He was an outspoken critic of May and says he will take the UK out of the EU on Oct 31, with or without a deal with the political bloc.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Following the result, May congratulated Johnson and said he will have her “full support from the back benches”.

“Many congratulations to Boris Johnson on being elected leader of the Conservatives-we now need to work togethe上海乌托邦品茶微信

r to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government,” she wrote on Twitter.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage wrote on social media: “I wish Boris Johnson well as Prime Minis

ter with his do or die pledge to deliver Brexit on Oct 31. Does he have the courage to deliver?”

They defaced the national emblem mounted at the entrance of the office and painted offensive graffiti on the office’s exterior.

上海乌托邦Lam said the vandalism is in blatant defiance of the nation’s sovereignty and an open chal

lenge to the “one country, two systems” principle. It has caused great harm to the SAR, which is governed u上海乌托邦

nder the principle, and it hurt the sentiments of people in Hong Kong and on the Chinese mainland.

Lam also strongly denounced the “astonishing and outrageous” attacks

上海乌托邦in Yuen Long in the New Territories. Late on Sunday night, attackers in white shir

ts, some wearing masks, assaulted bystanders and commuters at the Yuen Long subway station with bamboo sticks an

d metal poles. They said they were targeting radical protesters who have disrupted local order.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The attackers completely disregarded law and order as they indiscriminately assaulted innocent people, she said, addin

g that what they did was appalling and totally unacceptable. She requested that the police chief conduct an extensive a

上海乌托邦nd in-depth investigation into the incidents and punish those who violated the law.

The SAR government has zero tolerance for any kind of violence at any time, anywhere and toward anyone.

Commissioner of Police Lo Wai-chung pledged that the police investigation will begin imm上海乌托邦品茶微信

ediately, and the force will pursue offenders at all costs in order to bring them to justice.

He also dismissed allegations that the police force acted leniently when facing the violent上海乌托邦

attackers at the Yuen Long subway station. The police force is against any kind of violence, Lo stressed.

Wang Zhimin, director of the Liaison Office, made the “stron

上海乌托邦品茶微信
gest condemnation” of the vandalizing of the office on Sunday night.

Saying that Hong Kong has seen a series of radical protests that exceeded the bo

undaries of peaceful demonstration, Wang said these acts have challenged the city’s rul

He said he believed the Hong Kong government and its law-enfo

Through May in 2019, the province saw a steady rise in investment and foreign trade-with exports up by 10.9 percent year-上海乌托邦品茶微信

on-year, 5 percentage points above the national average-provincial Vice-Governor Guo Ningning said.

Fujian has been working hard to create an increasingly pro-business environm上海乌托邦

ABB, a digital technology company based in Switzerland, has invested 2 billion yuan ($290.7 million) to build a business hub.

The two-day meeting was attended by about 500 delegates, including more than 80 ministerial officials from 53 African countries and the African Union.

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said at the opening ceremony that Beijing’s coop

d so-called debt traps, which are totally groundless and not accepted by the African people, he said.

Such attempts constitute a total lack of respect for Africa, a lack of understan
