Premier Li Keqiang urged government departments to speed up the implementation
of tax reductions to invigorate the country’s economy, amid rising uncertainties about growth on Friday.
Li was speaking with entrepreneurs from the manufacturi
ng, construction and service sectors at the Zhongnanhai leadership compound in Beijing.
The businesspeople said they have received benefits from the tax reduction measu
res in the past months, after the measures were introduced by Li in the Government Work Report in March. They
also offered advice on how to further ease the tax burden on businesses.
After hearing their opinions, Li called tax reduction a great decision made by the Communist Party of China Central Comm
ittee and the State Council. It has boosted market confidence in outstanding ways and promoted the stable
growth of the economy, he said, adding that the positive factors for economic growth are increasing.
American Soybean Association President Davie Stephens said on Tuesday.
President Donald Trump threatened in a tweet on Sunday to increase tariffs.
Stephens, a grower from Clinton, Kentucky, said that US farmers are in a tough situation, and with depressed prices
and unsold stocks forecast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, farmers urgently need the China market.
“We need a positive resolution of this ongoing tariff dispute, not further escalation of tensions,” he said in a release posted on the ASA web site.
Nicole Kaeding, vice-president of federal and special projects at the Washington-based Tax Foun
dation, said that if the Trump administration follows through on the president’s threat, it’s US taxp
ayers, not Chinese taxpayers, who will pay the price — thanks to higher prices and fewer job opportunities.

tween China and economies related to the Belt and Road Initiative ex
ceeded $130 billion between 2013 and 2018, injecting new growth momentum into BRI-rela
ted countries and contributing to recovery of the global economy, senior Chinese officials said on Monday.
China’s direct investment in BRI-related countries grew by 5.2 percent a
nnually on average to surpass $90 billion between 2013 and 2018, Song Lihong, an officia
l in the Ministry of Commerce’s Comprehensive Department, said at a news conference.
Song said that in the same period, China had received a total of
$40 billion in inbound investment from BRI countries as two-way investment deepened.
Within the five years, the value of the projects completed
by Chinese companies in BRI economies amounted to $400 billion, Song said.

Zhu also was twice denied single-entry visas to the US.
“This shows how the US is trying to block normal social exchanges bet
ween the two countries, an important channel for mutual understanding and trust,” Zhu said.
Besides scholars in social sciences, the US also began last year to make it harder for Chinese graduate students to get visas if they stud
y in “sensitive research fields”. It warned biomedical researchers at US universities to beware of “Chinese spies
trying to steal information from their laboratories”, according to The New York Times report.
Jon Taylor, a professor of political science of the University o
f St. Thomas in Houston, said the decision is “both absurd and exceedingly shortsighted”.
“These scholars and researchers are social scientists with a long history of interactin
g with their American counterparts as well policymakers in both countries,” he said.
“They are scholars teaching and researching what I teach and research. What are they going to steal?”
