Hua Changchun, an analyst with Guotai Junan Securities, said the biggest impact of the planned new tariffs o

亚博yabo平台乌托邦Hua said even though the US planned tariffs targeting Chinese goods will reduce China’s e

xports, US importers also need to bear tariffs and seek new import suppliers from other countries, wh

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亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

Their comments came as Washington threatened to impose an additional 10 percent tariff on $300亚博yabo平台乌托邦

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

亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信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亚博yabo平台乌托邦

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

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

Earlier this week, a spokesman for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, the nation’s t

US Federal Reserve on Wednesday lowered interest rates for the first time since the 2008 global financial crisis,亚博yabo平台乌托邦女神会所

amid rising concerns over trade tensions, a slowing global economy and muted inflation pressures.

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the Fed’s rate-setting body,

亚博yabo平台乌托邦trimmed the target for the federal funds rate by 25 basis points to a range of 2 perc

ent to 2.25 percent after concluding its two-day policy meeting, in line with market expectation.

“Through the course of the year, weak global growth, trade policy uncertai

nty, and muted inflation have prompted the FOMC to adjust its assessment of the app亚博yabo平台乌托邦女神会所

ropriate path of interest rates,” Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

Despite strong job growth and solid consumer spending, the cen

亚博yabo平台乌托邦女神会所tral bank chief pointed out that manufacturing output has declined for two consecutive qua

rters, business fixed investment fell in the second quarter, and domestic inflation shortfall has continued.

“The Committee moved from expecting rate increases this year, to a亚博yabo平台乌托邦

patient stance about any changes, and then to today’s action,” Powell said.

“It’s primarily about risk management and a recalibration in response to rising ri

Which is the position FedEx finds itself in now.

It has claimed that it misdirected three of Chinese telecommuni亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

cations giant Huawei’s packages to the United States in May due to what it called “operational error”.

亚博yabo平台乌托邦Yet investigation by the Chinese authorities has found these were not due to any

oversight but rather part of a deliberate pattern of behavior in which the US ex

press services company is also suspected of holding up more than 100 Huawei packages entering China, as well as other violations of the law.亚博yabo平台乌托邦

And with the investigation still on-going, it is expected that more wrongdoings are yet to be revealed.

亚博yabo平台乌托邦Responding to China’s investigation on Friday, FedEx blamed the mishandling of the packages on the “unclear” rules of the US Com

merce Department, claiming they bring “great complexity” to its operation. “That is why we sued” the department, it said.

As one of the first foreign express delivery companies coming to China nearly 40 year亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

s ago, FedEx is well aware of China’s postal law. But it has obviously underestimated the country’s dete

rmination to enforce it to the letter. Otherwise, it would have not given such a feeble excuse when it was discovered to have

亚博yabo平台乌托邦delivered the three Huawei packages to the US, not their intended destination, which for one of the top-no

Prices of stocks on new tech-focused board likely to diverge, say experts?亚博yabo平台乌托邦

Stocks on Shanghai’s STAR Market extended their gains on Thursday, and analysts

?亚博yabo平台乌托邦said prices of stocks on the new tech-focused board may diverge with lower volatility in the near future.

The whole A-share market may be on an up

ward trend in the third quarter, they added, given fading concerns that the new

board may str?亚博yabo平台乌托邦女神会所ain the liquidity of other submarkets and the expected bottoming out of economic growth.

After a spectacular average gain of 140 percent on Monday and a retreat on Tuesday, t

?亚博yabo平台乌托邦he first 25 stocks on the STAR Market posted consecutive gains broadly in the following two trading days.

On Thursday, stocks on the STAR Market ended up by 5.5 percent on a?亚博yabo平台乌托邦

verage, versus 11 percent on Wednesday, with 23 of them registering gains and three of th

em rising by more than 10 percent, according to financial information provider Wind Info.

The value of shares that changed hands on the new board was around 29 billion yu?亚博yabo平台乌托邦

an ($4.2 billion) on Thursday, down from the more than 48 billion yuan on Monday.

“Trading of the STAR Market has been relatively rational, without signs of notable excessive speculation,” said W

?亚博yabo平台乌托邦女神会所ang Maobin, investment department chair at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

Behind the stable debut of the new market are innovations in fundamental market

rules, including enabling investors to short-sell stocks from their first trading day and the 10-minute halt of tra?亚博yabo平台乌托邦女神会所

亚博yabo平台乌托邦Looking ahead to the future of China-UK partnership in higher education, he hopes that both sides c

“The key to success is about ensuring mutual benefit, shared objectives and working together to resolve global challenges,” he says.

亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信tudents enrolled in the global engagement program launched

by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on June 26 will be engaged in tackling typical issues

faced by countries involved in China and the Belt and Road Initiative. According to the statement of the univer亚博yabo平台乌托邦

sity organizers, over 10 countries and regions will be involved in the program that includes 13 projects.

亚博yabo平台乌托邦The projects cover research and surveys on specific themes before com

ing up with solutions to problems related to the environment, medicine and civil engineering.

Ten of the projects will be carried out during the summer, while the remaining thre亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

e will be held in winter, from December to January next year. Each project will last between two and four weeks.

亚博yabo平台乌托邦More than 200 students are expected to join the program, according to the university.

“Every project is challenging as most of the students have never set foot in these areas,” says Cao Yongk

ang, director of the International Research Center for Architectural Heritage Conservation at the university.亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

“The program will definitely motivate them to realize their social responsi

bility in the new era and inspire them to solve the common problems of humankind.”亚博yabo平台乌托邦

Cao will lead one of the teams in investigations of villages in Zhejiang province’s Lishui city.

This project will involve setting up furniture and facilities that are

urgently needed by residents. The team will later visit villages in the Italian Alps to explore ne亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

w development models for locals, and compare the practices for these two countries.

“The project is designed for those majoring in architecture, city planning, sociology, and other亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

related subjects, and will equip them with a comprehensive understanding of rural revitalization,” says Cao.

Whether the US administration makes the same mistake this time remains to be seen. In any case, it is worth considering how t?亚博yabo平台乌托邦品茶微信

While these tariffs have not yet had serious consequenc

The US wants to create among Belt and Road partner countries doubt

thus dissuade them from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.

Some American politicians and media will continue to proclaim

the US as the judge of the world and infringe upon other countries’ sovereignty. They are also ex
