of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariffs on $
4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海419论坛
sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU goo
上海419论坛品茶微信ds－in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US ad
ministration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.
Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute ove上海419论坛
r the subsidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tari
ffs to exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global
上海419论坛品茶微信market and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.
The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “thre
e zeros”－zero tariff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy－for non-auto industrial products.上海419论坛
Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agricu
上海419论坛品茶微信ltural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington comp
elled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.
As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campai
gn, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the votes from the agricultural belts helpe上海419论坛品茶微信
d him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has provided numerous subsidies for farmers to
help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and other eco上海419论坛
nomies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agr
上海419论坛品茶微信icultural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.
However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane manuf
acturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose m
ore tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU goo
ds, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.

Planned deal worth around $2.2 billion seriously violates international law
China said on Friday it will place sanctions on US companies involved in the lates上海419论坛女神会所
t planned military sale to Taiwan, which it said has impaired its sovereignty and national security.
The planned sale worth an estimated $2.2 billion seriously violates international law and b上海419论坛
asic norms of international relations, as well as the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three Chi
na-US joint communiques, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in a statement.
上海419论坛女神会所China made the sanctions decision in order to safeguard its national interests, Geng said.
In a news conference in Beijing, Geng again urged the United States to call off the sale and cut military ties with Taiwan.
The US announced its State Department has approved the sale, the largest since US President Donald Trump took office in Jan上海419论坛女神会所
uary 2017. The announcement came just days before the arrival of Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen to the US.
Tsai arrived in the US on Thursday, Reuters reported, and is spending four nights in th上海419论坛
e US－two on the first leg and two on the way back from a visit to four Caribbean countries.
State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China is “gravely concerned” by Tsa上海419论坛女神会所
i’s transiting the US, and is firmly against any form of official contact between the US and Taiwan.
“Taiwan independence” separatist activities are doomed to fail, and no foreign
intervention is allowed in the Taiwan question, which is purely China’s domestic affair, Wang said in a joint ne
ws conference in Budapest with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto on Friday.
“No one and no force is able to obstruct the historical process of unifica
tion of the two sides across the Taiwan Straits,” Wang said, urging the US to honor its on
e-China promise and the stipulations of the three China-US joint communiques.
of Agricultural Sciences, said that with sharp declines in the supply of
pork in China, domestic pork consumption has declined since the second half of last year.
Zhu predicted a further decline in production and consu上海419论坛女神会所
上海419论坛mption this year, and a gap of 5 to 10 percent between supply and demand.
“As an alternative to pork, poultry will see a noticeable increase in
supply in the next two years, which will ease shortages in pork supplies,” he said.
Pork accounts for more than 60 percent of meat production in China上海419论坛
, said Xin Guochang, an information monitoring official at the ministry.
Authorities have been adapting swine fever controls and prevention measures since late last year to effectively contain the infec上海419论坛女神会所
tious disease, which has a high mortality rate for pigs but is not transmittable to humans, Xin said at the Gl
obal Pig Industry Conference hosted by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing on Thursday.
上海419论坛For example, all hogs within 3 kilometers of farms where swine fever had been verified used to be slaughtered for dise
ase prevention and control. Now, more sophisticated calculations are made to determine the area targeted for s
laughter so that farmers without infected animals are more easily able to maintain production, he said.上海419论坛女神会所
The government has been transparent in disclosing information about swi
ne fever outbreaks, Xin said. “But it cannot be entirely ruled out that some pig farmers fa
上海419论坛女神会所iled to report outbreaks to authorities, according to regulations, for various reasons,” he added.
Li Shuilong, president of the China Meat Association, said that although African swine fever has caused serious damage to the
country’s pork sector, it has also provided a good opportunity for the domestic industry to upgrade operations an上海419论坛女神会所
d address problems such as poor sanitation conditions and overuse of vaccines and drugs.

The construction of a smart industry park started in Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC) on Thursday. The knowledge city was elevated to a national-level project last month.
上海419论坛Involving a total investment of 1.4 billion yuan ($203.34 million) and scheduled to be completed in 2020, the China-Singapore International Smart Industry Park will focus on the development of technology related to the internet of things, big data and cloud ecology.
It is designed to empower companies developing applications in the smart home, transport, office, healthcare and city industries, according to the administration of Huangpu district, Guangzhou, where the project is located.

US markets rallied and closed in positive territory Monday on news that Chinese President Xi Ji
上海419论坛nping and his US counterpart Donald Trump will resume negotiations to resolve the ongoing trade dispute.
Trump said talks are “back on track” and held off on his threat to impose tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods. Trump 上海419论坛
said China will buy “a tremendous amount” of US food and agriculture exports while bilateral negotiations are ongoing.
The S&P 500 reached 2,977.86 in midday trading, all all-time high, bef
ore closing at 2964.33, up 22.57 points. Nevertheless, the long-term outlook for the market rema 上海419论坛
ins unclear as US manufacturing dipped close to a three-year low in June amid a worldwide economic slowdown.
“The devil is always in the details,” Usha Haley, professor of manageme
nt at Wichita State University, told China Daily. “I don’t know if Trump is the great m
上海419论坛品茶微信ediator. But everyone gave a huge sigh of relief that talks have resumed between the US and China.”
Trump eased export sanctions on Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, boosting semiconductor stocks, including Micron Tech
nology, Skyworks Solutions, Qualcomm and Broadcom — and sparking the possibility of a revolt among some Republicans.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a strong Trump supporter, told NBC’s Face the Nation on Sund 上海419论坛品茶微信
ay that he’s reviewing Trump’s action and noted, “It’s clearly a concession. There’ll be a lot of pu
shback if this is a major concession. If it’s a minor concession, I think it’s part of the overall deal.”
Neither side sai 上海419论坛品茶微信d when negotiations would resume or established a schedule for completing a deal.
Goldman Sachs called Trump’s decision to ease export sanctions on Huawei a “potential unexpected market friendly outcome”。
Asked at the G20 meeting in Japan if he had removed Huawei from the Entity List that controls the export of technology th
at could compromise US national security, Trump said, “No, not at all” and “We are talking about that” before telling re
porters, “I don’t want to talk about it now, we are looking at it very carefully. Huawei is very much in play.”

The park will also dismantle old factories to add 3.5 million sq meters of floor space for industrial development.
Shenzhen’s first united headquarters building will also be located in the Na

The zone’s Pingshan park, occupying 51.6 square kilometers, is the largest among the five parks across the city. It is divided into the
southern and northern areas. The northern area features a new-energy industry headquarters while the sout
上海419论坛hern area, where Shenzhen Technology University is located, is focused on education, intelligent manufacturing and innovative services.
In 2019, the Pingshan park will provide an additional 50,000 sq km of land for industrial development through urban rejuvenation and upgrading old industrial parks.
Shenzhen National High-Tech Zone, inaugurated in 1996, was transformed from Shenzhen Science and Technology Park, which was set up in 1985.

It yielded 24.4 billion yuan ($3.87 billion) of GDP and 4.3 billion yuan of tax revenue per square kilometer in 2018, the biggest among
all its counterparts in the country. It accounted for 15 percent of the city’s total patent applications and yie

One of Britain’s leading economists said Chinese consumers will be the driving force of future global economic growth.
Jim O’Neill, chair of the international think tank Chatham House and former chief economist at Goldman Sachs, made the remarks in a speech on Wednesday at the c上海419论坛女神会所
elebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the second China-UK Economic and Trade Forum in London.
“What happens to the Chinese consumers is more important to China’s future,” O’Neill said.上海419论坛女神会所
“If China continues with 8 percent nominal GDP growth, which I believe is 5 percent real (GDP growth), and 3 percent pric
es (meaning inflation), and if the Chinese consumers become the 50 percent of that total, the change from the next year to the next decade is so
mewhere between $11 to $12 trillion, which is equivalent to create another China,” he said.
