At the same time, the tariff proposal shows that Washington has turned a blind eye to the tremendous efforts made by both n
上海乌托邦品茶微信ations in advancing their economic and trade ties, Wang said at a recent seminar in Beijing.
The US announced the new tariff threat shortly after the 12th round of high-level trade talks in late Ju
ly. If the plan takes effect, the US will put additional tariffs on basically all Chinese goods coming into the US. 上海乌托邦
On Tuesday, the Office of the US Trade Representative said it will delay 10 percent ta
riffs on certain Chinese products, including laptops and cellphones, until Dec 15.
Yang Weiyong, an economics professor at the University of International Business and Ec 上海乌托邦品茶微信
onomics in Beijing, said the US tariff delay is more out of consideration for its own interests－creating sufficient time
for its consumers and trading companies to look for substitute goods in other markets.
“Besides, the US did so because of concerns over the Christmas shopping season. Th
上海乌托邦e government intends to reduce the potential impact of tariffs on US holiday shopping,” Yang said.
But the US plan to merely delay some tariffs by no means sho
ws Washington’s sincerity toward advancing future consultations, Yang said. 上海乌托邦品茶微信
According to a Reuters analysis, the delay may encompass around half of th
e $300 billion list of remaining Chinese imports. Chinese imports subject to the tariffs as of 上海乌托邦
Dec 15 totaled about $156 billion last year, Reuters said, citing US Census Bureau information.
Sun Lipeng, a research fellow with the China Institutes of Contemporary International 上海乌托邦品茶微信
Relations, said the US won’t be immune to the effects of its own trade bullying behavior.
Washington’s new tariff plan will further burden US consumers and dam
pen companies’ confidence in investment, dragging down the US economy, Sun said.

Party motto inspired by young soldier keeps educating members in new era
XI’AN-Serving the people wholeheartedly-this is
the motto of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the world’s largest ruling party. 上海夜网
In an education campaign themed “stay true to our founding mission”, which has been carried out nationwide since May, all CPC
members and officials are required to bear in mind the phrase and act accordingly. 上海夜网女神会所
The expression “serving the people” originated from a speech by late Chinese leader Ma
o Zedong in September 1944 in memory of a soldier, Zhang Side, renowned for
his lofty morality for serving the people wholeheartedly and sacrificing for the benefit of the people. 上海夜网
The speech has had a profound impact on the history of the CPC, and “serv
上海夜网女神会所ing the people wholeheartedly” became the fundamental purpose of the Party.
Seventy-five years on, Zhang’s stories have been eulogized by generations of Chinese, and his spirit has been passed on.
Role modelBorn in an impoverished peasant family in Sichuan province in 1915, Zhang joined the New Fourth Army in 上海夜网
1933 and the CPC four years later. Throughout the Long March, Zhang fought bravely in battles and was injured seve
ral times. He also worked very hard while in Yan’an, a revolutionary base of the CPC in the 1940s.
On Sept 5, 1944, Zhang was working in a kiln with several soldiers when suddenly, the kiln coll 上海夜网女神会所

On Friday the Foreign Ministry rejected the United States’ labeling China as “a thuggish regime”, saying Washington has confo

The spokesperson of the US State Department was astonished to claim the job of American diplomats was to meddle with t

“Can the world be at peace with the way the US operates?” Hua asked in the statement.
Hua’s comments came as US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus on Thursday called China a “thuggish regime” for disclosing pho上海419论坛品茶微信
tographs and personal details of a US diplomat who met with major leaders of the “Hong Kong Independence” activist groups.
The US State Department spokesperson should look at her own words and behaviors instead of using media reports to hit

Huo said it is time for the US to help its farmers sell their products in overseas markets with more policy guarantees.

NO INTENTION TO DEVALUATE CURRENCY
上海千花坊女神会所China has long been committed to keeping the yuan’s exchang
e rate basically stable at a reasonable and balanced level, the central bank said.
The Chinese currency is the strongest among the G20 and is one of the currencies that has seen substantial appreciation.
From the beginning of 2005 to June this year, the currency’s nominal e上海千花坊
xchange rate appreciated 38 percent and real exchange rate strengthened 47 percent.
Last month, the IMF found in its latest annual assessment that the renminbi exchange rate was broadly in line with fundamentals.上海千花坊女神会所
From the macro perspective, the yuan’s exchange rate is buoyed by the coun
try’s sound fundamentals, strong economic resilience, stable fiscal position, c上海千花坊
ontrollable financial risks, balanced cross-border capital movement and sufficient foreign exchange reserves.
China has no intention to gain trade advantages by devaluing its currency, as the yuan’
上海千花坊女神会所s depreciation cannot necessarily lift exports, said Song Xiangyan, an analyst with the PBOC.
A large devaluation probably leads to panic capital outflows and competitive currency devaluation of China’s trading par
tners, which will undermine the country’s financial stability and hurt imports, Song added.
China will be committed to the promises on exchange rates made at all G20 summit上海千花坊女神会所
s and abide by a market-determined exchange rate system, the PBOC governor Yi Gang said Monday.
Refusing competitive devaluation, the country will not resort to exchange r
ates in handling external uncertainties such as trade disputes, Yi said.
