Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment

Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊

During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊

volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.

• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所

Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral

上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga

me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.

In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o

t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr

ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p

ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所

untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.

In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil

lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec

onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre

ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.

• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?

Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that

have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high

ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm

ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the

international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

As Kong understands, there are plenty of opportunitie

 for insurance companies in the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, with transportation as a top priority.

上海夜网女神会所”Insurance capital can help the government to boost domestic consumption. A co

mprehensive transportation network connecting railway, subway, ports and even airports has上海夜网

been a longstanding goal of many cities in this area. This is where insurers can play a big role,” he said.

Elderly care is another sector where insurance companies can find big opportunities, said Ko

ng. In early June, CPIC opened an elderly care community in Hangzhou, and is about to launch a new one in Nanjing.上海夜网女神会所

“The idea is to let the senior citizens in Shanghai enjoy quality elderly care services in other parts of the Yangtze River Delta region. Mor

e room in Shanghai can thus be given to ambitious young entrepreneurs to set up their own businesses,” he said.

The integration of risk prevention schemes for peasants in the Y

angtze River Delta region is one more area where insurers can focus on, said Kong.上海夜网

Peasants’ income can be largely increased via products such

as cost insurance, yield insurance, income insurance or one-stop insurance service.

He Haifeng, director of the Institute of Financial Policy, which is a part of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said the int上海夜网女神会所

egrated development of the delta region presents many latent challenges. So, more efforts should be made to r

eform finance and tax areas, to reduce fees in various fields, and improve the overall business environment.

Geng Shuang, spokesman of the Foreign Ministry

d China has always called for resolving trade tensions with the US through dia

US threats to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports cannot intimidate the Chinese people, Geng added.上海千花坊

Gao said China’s stance toward tariffs is clear, that the country has always opposed

unilaterally imposed tariffs. “The US trade bullying eventually hurts its own businesses and consumers,” he said.上海千花坊女神会所

The “unreliable entities” list-a blacklist of foreign parties that, for noncom

Gao said. Companies that abide by Chinese law and the spirit of contracts have nothing to worry about, he said.

上海千花坊女神会所Zhou Mi, deputy director of the Institute of American and Oceania Studies of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Eco

nomic Cooperation, said it is necessary for China to push forward with the list of “unreliable entities,” and export restriction measures.

“These moves will bring about institutional improvement,” Zhou said. “They are

上海千花坊女神会所not meant to punish any company, but to guide all market entities to abide by the laws, regulations and commercial con

According to Ling Zi, a marriage consultant, it does more harm than good for parents to be overly involved in children’s ma

It has become common in China for pushy parents to look for spouses for their children who are too busy or slow in finding love, the paper said.

With all expressway lanes capable of offering ETC servic

vice by October, an increase in the number of China’s ETC users will make the 90 percent passage via ETC

a reality by year-end, the action plan said.

Starting from July 1, 2019, the country will strictly implement the poli

cy of granting a discount of no less than 5 percent off expressway tolls for ETC use

rs. By the end of the year, the number of ETC users is expected to top 180 million, the action plan said.

The plan calls for increased investment in building the ETC infrast

ucture to increase the proportion of ETC lanes, which should be no less than 70 percent by

the end of October for big and medium-sized cities, new towns and sites near scenic spots.

Given that some vehicles may not have installed ETC devices by yea

r-end, expressways will still offer some manned lanes, accepting mobile payment.
