On the one hand, judging上海龙凤1314ustrial developme

nt history, the relocation of some manufacturing industries from

上海龙凤1314China to overseas destinations is inevitable given the extent of China’s development. On the other h

and, this phenomenon does not mean China will lose its manufacturing and economic power.上海龙凤1314品茶微信

During the previous five industrial migrations, the economic development of the leading countries that hosted such industries didn’t stop after

some of the traditional sectors relocated to other countries. Instead, they soon saw the rise of new industries, high-end m上海龙凤1314

anufacturing and the service sector-and they are still developed economies. For example, the US is still the world’s larg

上海龙凤1314品茶微信est economy even 60 years after the third industrial migration, while Japan, Germany and Britain are ranked among the

top seven economies in terms of size and quality even decades after the industrial migration.上海龙凤1314

Relocation speed and scope not alarming

As a country with the world’s largest population, the third-largest territory, and the longest continuous上海龙凤1314

economic growth curve, China’s case will be the same even after the relocation of some of its manufacturing industries.

First, as mentioned above, the speed and scope of the manufacturing units’ relocation from China are not as fast and large as s

上海龙凤1314品茶微信ome people imagine. The industrial relocation from China started after the 2008 global financial crisis br

oke out, accelerated in 2012, and gained pace last year due to the Sino-US trade conflicts.

But the consequences are not expected to be very serious. For instance, from 2008 to 2018, global trade grew at an annual aver

age rate of 2.4 percent, while China saw 6.3 percent annual average export growth, which shows China’s export g上海龙凤1314品茶微信

rowth has been not only steady, but also 3.9 percentage points higher than that of global trade.

As a result, the share of China’s exports in global exports rose from 8.9

percent in 2008 to 12.9 percent in 2018, an increase of 4 percentage points. Which is a clear indica上海龙凤1314

tion that the relocation of manufacturing industries from China is not fast enough to make us feel worried.

Second, the rapid rise of emerging manufacturing industries in China will to a large extent offset t上海龙凤1314

he impact of the relocation of low-end industries on its entire manufacturing industry and e上海龙凤1314品茶微信

conomy. Therefore, China will continue to be a manufacturing and economic powerhouse.

Washington should face the matter of deficit squarely: former vice-premier

The “real” trade imbalance between the world’s two largest economies has long been overstated b

上海龙凤1314女神会所y 20 percent. Better data would give a more balanced picture of Sino-US trade and reflect the gains th

at both sides derive from their economic relationship, said former Chinese Vice-Premier Zeng Peiyan.

There has always been divergence between Chinese and US figures on the bilateral trade gap due to the different met

hods used. Current methods omit trade in services from the trade balance, overlooking China’s role in processing tr上海龙凤1314女神会所

ade, and thus overestimating the trade deficit, Zeng told a seminar in Hong Kong on Tuesday.

The two-day event, themed “US-China Trade and Economic Relatio

ns: What Now, What Next”, invited former government officials, industry re上海龙凤1314

presentatives and academics from home and abroad to share their insights on the year-old Sino-US trade friction, w

hich has become the single most important factor in the global economy and markets.

上海龙凤1314女神会所According to Chen, the robot is still a prototype and on the basis of that the two sides hope to step u

p investments to develop versatile robots that can even pick fruit with a bionic hand in the future.

“Based on the mass agricultural data and images we have acquired, we hope to build an optimized plant growth model to ach

ieve automatic control of the growth environment and early warning of pests and diseases,” Chen added.上海龙凤1314女神会所

China is now the world’s largest market for industrial robots. As labo

He listed infrastructure, energy, education and business-to-business relationships as potential areas of coope

“It’s so important to be working at the state and local level. Because in that fashion, by buildin

Tariffs pose threat to global industrial chains, official says

The tariff increases that the United States has placed on Chinese goods affect not only the interests of Chinese companies and consumers, but also their US cou

nterparts and threaten the security of global industrial and supply chains, according to a senior Chinese industrial official.

“We once again urge the US to stop unreasonably suppressing Chin

ese companies. Chinese companies deserve to invest and operate in a fair and just en

vironment in the US and the world,” Vice-Minister of Industry and Information Technology Wang Zhijun said.

Concerning the US decision to further increase tariffs on Chinese imports, Wang s

aid during a recent interview with news media that the total impact is “controllable”.

The nearly $200 billion of Chinese goods hit by additional US tariffs on May 10 acco

unted for 41.8 percent of China’s US exports in 2018, or 8 percent of its total exports.

senior official of the China Meteorological Administration’s National Satellite Meteorological Center.

The services will be provided based on the results of a survey of 81 countries. By the end

of April, 22 countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, Libya and Sudan, had responded to the survey.

All of the respondents said they wanted to install the application software platforms

of the Fengyun satellites for weather forecasting, as well as climate and environment monitoring.

They also requested a range of services, especially in monitoring rainf

Chinese firms ideal partners on Belt and Road Initiative

Firms from China and the UK are ideal partners in many countries along t

he Belt and Road Initiative, a China-Britain Business Council official said in Beijing.

“The UK has taken a very positive view on seizing these opportunit

ies for UK businesses, particularly our banks, our large consultancy firms and our infr

astructure companies,” said Jeff Astle, managing director of China operations at the council.

British expertise in areas of financial services, banking, legal services, consulting services around engineering pro

vides a broad range of opportunities for UK firms to collaborate with Chinese firms in other countries, Astle said.

“We benefit from many English legal jurisdictions in many

of these countries, the English language and our businesses have long history and experiences in these coun

tries. That means we are a great ideal partner for Chinese firms in many of these Belt and Road counties,” said Astle.

Before the start of the China Cup, Cannavaro said that fans

 and media need to focus on long term development of Chinese soccer instead of what happens at the tournament.

“It’s like building a house-the first job is to build a solid foundation,” he said

“Based on that, we can have success. Compared to Japan and South Korea, their plans started decades ago.

“They are 20 to 25 years ahead of China in terms of their soccer development.”

Another factor was that Cannavaro did not recall China’s best striker, Wu Lei, who is now playing for Espanyol in La Liga.

Other experienced veterans, such as captain Zheng Zhi, were passed over in order to make way for younger players.

Cannavaro said he sought out the opinion of Lippi, who now serves as an adviser, including player selection.

Talks can produce fresh progress toward a dea ina Daily editorial

It is encouraging that after the deputy-level meetings on Monday and Tuesday

to work out the technical details for an agr

eement — including a mechanism for enforcing any deal — the face-to-face discussions being conducted between d

ecision-makers from both countries are being held amid a general air of optimism.

The negotiations are being led by Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and US Treasury Secr

etary Steven Mnuchin, whose cordial discussions in Washington on Jan 30 and 31 raised hopes that the two s

ides are genuinely doing their utmost to reach an agreement ahead of the March 1 deadline when US tariffs on $

200 billion worth of imports from China are set to rise to 25 percent from 10 percent.

But there are still obstacles to be overcome, and no one should underestimate how daunting a task the two s

ides face trying to resolve all the differences that have long existed between them in one clean sweep.
