Arms sales to Taiwan 上海419 blow tootening the poten

tial sale of arms worth $2.2 billion to Taiwan, the US State Department

has not only further strained cross-Straits relations, it is also trying Beijing’s p上海419

atience. And by passing a series of acts and resolutions related to Taiwan this year, the US Congress has dealt a serious bl

上海419品茶微信ow to Sino-US relations, as well as undermined peace and stability across the Straits.

The US House of Representatives enacted the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 and passed a resolution reaffirming the US’ commitment to Taiwan on May 7, which es上海419

sentially means the US would sell arms to the island regularly and back its participation in international organizations.

上海419品茶微信That the US has continued to meddle in Taiwan affairs shows it is desperate to use the “Taiwan card” to contain the Chinese mainland.

The US believes that by consolidating its relationship with Taiwan authorities through a

cts and resolutions, it can further integrate the island into its “Indo-Pacific” strategy to contain the mainland, t上海419

he biggest rival in Washington’s eyes thanks, in part, to the trade disputes between them.

上海419Yet the ruling Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, which favors an independent entity f

or the island, is willing to act as the cat’s paw for the US in exchange for security protection and p上海419品茶微信

olitical cover. Which is nothing but wishful thinking on the part of Taiwan authorities, because there is little chance o

f Washington getting involved in a war across the Straits if the DPP indeed tries to split the country.上海419

Following the DPP’s ideology of making Taiwan an independent entity, t

he island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-in上海419品茶微信

dependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, since she took office in 2

016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, openly pitched himself as a上海419品茶微信

worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai administr

ation and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has he

ld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

Xi held talks with Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Tuesdhinese President Xi Jinping held talks with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the Great Hall of the People on Tuesday, pledging more efforts to promote strategic cooperation between the two sides and work for sound bilateral ties.

Last year, China’s per-capita gross national income (GNI) hit $9,732, higher than that of middle income countries, according to a report released by the National Bureau of Statistics Monday.上海419

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Over the past seven decades, China’s national economy maintained rapid growth, with a tangible rise in its economic aggregate, the report said.

The report, which elaborates economic and social development achievement since the founding of New China 70 years ago, show

ed China’s GDP was 67.9 billion yuan in 1952, with per-capita GDP of 119 yuan. In 1978, C上海419品茶微信

hina’s GDP rose to 367.9 billion yuan, accounting for 1.8 percent of the global economy and ranking No 11 in the world.

Since the country began to implement reform and opening-up in 1978, China’s economy has maintained rapid growth. Its econo

mic aggregate surpassed 1 trillion yuan in 1986 and 10 trillion yuan in 2000, becoming the sixth-largest economy in the world上海419

. In 2010, China’s economic aggregate was 41.21 trillion yuan, overtaking Japan to become the second-largest economy.

上海419Over the past three years, China’s economic aggregate has topped 70 trillion yuan, 80 trillion yuan and 90 trillion yuan, respectively. Last year, Ch

ina’s economic aggregate reached 90.03 trillion yuan, accounting for nearly 16 percent of the global economy, while its

per-capita GNI reached $9,732, higher than the average level of middle income countries.上海419品茶微信

China’s financial strength has also improved greatly, with big increase in fore

ign reserves. In 1950, China’s fiscal revenue was only 6.2 billion yuan, and the figure rose to 113.2 billion yuan in 1978.上海419品茶微信

Since the country began its reform and opening-up, China has seen a surge in fiscal revenue. In 1999, China’s national fis

cal revenue exceeded 1 trillion yuan for the first time, and reached 11.72 trillion yuan in 2012, and 18.34 trillion yuan in 2

018. Between 1951 and 2018, China registered an average annual growth of 12.5 percent in fiscal revenue, providing st

rong capital guarantee to promote economic development and improve people’s livelihood.

Since the reform and opening-up, China’s foreign exchange reserves have show

ed stable growth. As of 1978, the figure stood at $167 million, ranked 38th in the world. By

the end of 2006, China’s foreign reserves surpassed $1 trillion and become the world’s largest. The figure w

as $3.07 trillion as of the end of last year, ranking at the top worldwide for 13 consecutive years.

Industrial structure continued optimization and upgrade over the past 70 yea

rs. At the early stage of the founding of the country, China’s agricultural production has weak bases, wit

h lower grain output. Since the reform and opening-up, the agricultural economy witnessed rapid development. In

2012, China’s total grain output rose to 612.23 million tons from 304.77 million tons in 1978, while the total output value of ag

riculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery increased to 8.63 trillion yuan from 139.7 billion yuan.

Guo Rui, a professo 上海419r of international relations at Jilin

University, said, “Although the DMZ meeting has created significant momentum that will help restart a change on the Korean Peninsula, as sanctions will remain in place, chances are

 上海419品茶微信not high that the meeting will lead to a major change in the short-term trajectory of denuclearizing the peninsula.”

One of the most encouraging signs that emerged from the meeting between President Xi Jinpi

ng and US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka on Saturday was the s 上海419

oftening of Trump’s stance on the sanctions the US administration had imposed on Chinese telecommunications equi

pment provider Huawei. Trump said US companies can continue selling telecom components to Huawei. 上海419

If US companies indeed continue selling telecom components to Huawei, it will come as a big relief to the world at a time when th

e international community fears the “technology decoupling” of world’s largest and second-largest economies could u 上海419品茶微信

ndermine global technological development, especially the commercialization of 5G technology, in which Huawei is a leading global player.

Previously the US administration was reportedly mulling banning 5G telecom equipment designed and manufactured in China, includin 上海419

g those made by multinational companies such as Ericsson and Nokia, from the US market.
The fact is, as a global leader in 5G, Hu

 上海419品茶微信awei is too big to fail. After the US administration banned American companies from selling chips to Huawei an

d other Chinese companies, Silicon Valley has suffered as much, if not more than, Huawei. Besides, some companies co

ntinued to supply chips to Huawei via their overseas branches in order to avoid violating the US ban. 上海419品茶微信

Hopefully, the Xi-Trump meeting and the likely resumption of trade talks between China and the U

S will prompt Washington to adopt a consistent and the right approach toward Chinese high-tech co

mpanies, not least because China tends to treat all companies, domestic as well as foreign, equally. 上海419品茶微信

For example, with research and development centers and manufacturing bases in China, Er

icsson and Nokia have won big contracts in the just launched bid for 5G network devices. These companies hav

e been supplying to markets and serving telecom operators and enterprises across the globe, by capi

talizing on China’s skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure and complete industrial chain.

Yet, if the US does not lift the ban, such companies would have to endure higher production co

sts. They could even be forced to transfer their businesses out of China, although both Ericsson and Nokia cl

aim they can operate production bases in other countries despite the higher costs, due to the flexible supply chain.

Electric carmaker NIO will replace the power battery pack

with an improved version for vehicles within the scope of the recall for free to eliminate safety hazards.

上海419品茶微信At least three NIO ES8 vehicles had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transdepartmental 上海419

investigation team to optimize the quality management system of their products in cooperation with supply chain partners.

上海419品茶微信By May this year, NIO had delivered over 170,000 ES8 vehicles, and the 70 kilowatt-hour battery packs produced after Oct 20, 2018, have been equipped with modules of the specification model NEV-P102, which has no safety hazards, the company said.

A senior lawyer said he is “very optimistic” about the future of China’s business envi

ronment, as the country is determined to develop an advanced intellectual property protection legal regime.上海419

“We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, managing

partner of Zhao Sheng Law Firm. The office is the British law firm Linklaters’ joint operating partner in China.上海419品茶微信

Despite the uncertainty caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he believes “Chin

a will continue opening its economy up to international trade and cross-border inbound and outbound direct investment.”

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for IP prot

ection, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the intellectual prope

rty rights of foreign investors, following the promulgation of the Foreign Investment Law.

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tra

de dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

“There is no talk about a truce,” he said. “If we totally surrender and sp

Putin added that Russia’s losses from economic sanctions were m

“According to expert data, as a result of these restrictions, Russia lost about 50 billion US dollars since 2014, while the European Unio

He said the losses were reflected in a reduction in the number of jo
