Focusing largely on standards and regulations, both crucial to a firm’s generic value chain, the report found however that when authorities take steps to reduce compliance costs, the competitiveness of SMEs is greatly improved.

It also underlined an important shift which is seeing more and more developing countries setting voluntary sustainability standards (known as VSS, these are set by businesses and NGOs) which govern international trade together with public standards and regulations.

Findings show that while 75 percent of VSS originate in countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation

and Development, over a third of new voluntary standards are thought up in developing countries, up from eight percent in 1990.

The outlook also outlined that many regions across the world can increase their export potential “by directing regulatory efforts to boost SME competitiveness.”

In the Middle East and North Africa region for example, researchers found there is large untapped export opportunity in the fresh and processed food sec

tor, while metal and basic manufacturing represent 28.4 percent of Eastern Europe and Central Asia’s unexploited export potential.

In China, ITC estimated that telephone sets have an unrealized export potential of more than $100 billion, while other prod

Iranian Minister of Inform上海千花坊女神会所munications Techn

hnology Moham上海千花坊女神会所mad Javad Azari Jahromi also decried US cyber attacks on

Iran over the past years, saying that “We have been facing cyber-terrorism for a long time.”

Earlier this month, the United States claimed Iran is responsible for an attack on two oil

tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The accusation was dismissed by the Islamic Republic.

Over the accusation, Zarif has said the United States immediately jumped to make allegat

ions against Iran was a plan to use sabotage diplomacy to cover up its economic terrorism against Iran.

Following the attack on the oil tankers, the Pentagon authorized the d

This was preceded by the deployment of the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group, bo

India to impose retalia上海419品茶微信roductsmedia

The Indian governmen上海419品茶微信t has decided to impose retaliatory d

uties worth over 200 million US dollars on 29 products from the United States to co

unter the penal duties imposed on Indian aluminum and steel, local media reported Saturday.

The decision, to be officially notified on Sunday, came a few days ahead

of the scheduled visit of the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to India to discuss def

ense and trade issues, the Hindu Business Line quoting an unnamed government official as saying.

In June last year, India announced retaliatory tariffs worth 230 million US dollars on 29 US goods. However, India h

as since been postponing implementation of the duties in a bid to address trade concerns.

The trade concerns including the proposed withdrawal of the Generalized System of Preferences by the United States o

n India taking effect on June 5, may have prompted New Delhi to finally put the duties in place, the report said.

The US has not only intensified screening and restrict

the possibility that the US may ban all high-tech product exports to China in the future,” Li said.

“The new move will be a major step to strengthen controls over technological exports. It is necessary for China to set up export control

It is one of the oldest festivals, not only in China but also

hroughout th上海龙凤品茶微信e world, with a history of more than 2,000 years. In 2006, the traditional festival was listed as part of China’s

national intangible cultural heritage. In 2008, it was recognized as a public holiday in the Chinese mainland.

The Dragon Boat Festival commemorates the death of Qu Yuan, a Chu state

official and poet who lived during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC) before the reu

nification of China under the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC). He was exiled after opposing his king’s decision to ally wit

h the neighboring state of Qin, and when Chu was finally conquered by Qin, he

committed suicide by drowning in the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.

The Chu people, who admired Qu Yuan for his loyalty and integrity, th

rew rice dumplings into the river to feed the fish so they would not eat the body of their po

et hero. People then started dragon boat racing to scare off the fish.

Since then, the fifth day of the fifth month on the lunar calendar is cel

brated as the Dragon Boat Festival. The following are some customs for the festival.
