Already, opposition t上海会所gton-triggered tra

 war is intensifying within the US. For example, the US Chamber of Commerce – one of the country’s most powerful bu

上海会所siness lobbies – has called for the reversal of all tariffs imposed over the past two years.

The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment

. In recent years, rising Chinese production costs have driven many foreign enterp上海会所女神会所

rises – and, increasingly, even Chinese enterprises – to relocate their operations to lower-cost countries such as

Vietnam and Thailand. The trade war is accelerating this process. According to the Vietnamese government, inward for

上海会所eign direct investment increased by nearly 70 percent year-on-year in the first five months of 2019, the highest such i

ncrease since 2015. Meanwhile, the growth of US investment in China is slowing.上海会所女神会所

Essential to improve investment environment

上海会所The US administration wants American companies to leave China. It is u

p to China to persuade them to stay. That means improving the local investment envi

ronment, including responding to foreign companies’ justifiable complaints – say, by strengthening intellectual p上海会所

roperty rights protection – and, more broadly, better adhering to World Trade Organization rules.

But the pressure on China does not end there. The US is also eager to exclude the count

上海会所女神会所ry’s high-tech companies from global value chains. Trump recently announced that he would allow US co

mpanies to continue to sell to Chinese high-tech giant Huawei, after a months-long campaign against the company. But it r

emains highly unlikely that the US administration – which reversed a similarly aggressive policy toward sm

artphone company ZTE last year – will abandon its efforts to strangle China’s high-tech industries.上海会所女神会所

China has three options. First, it could accede to US pressure to disengage from global value chains. Second, it could remain

committed to integration, hoping that, thanks to existing interconnections, sanctions on Chinese high-tech com上海会所

panies will also hurt their US counterparts (such as Qualcomm) enough for the US administration to back d

上海会所女神会所own. The third option is to focus on supporting domestic high-tech companies’ effo

rts to strengthen their own positions within global value chains and develop contingency plans.

The US’ policy to contain 上海乌托邦evident in the way

 it has hyped up the problems in Xinjiang. Some American people and organizations have openly suppor

ted the separatist “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” in China through political and financial hel 上海乌托邦品茶微信

p, and by disseminating its separatist ideas through publicity and diplomatic channels in the disguise of human rights an

 上海乌托邦d freedom. No wonder they call white black and assume the measures China has taken in Xinjiang to fight terrorism, se

paratism and extremism and improve public welfare are human rights violations.

President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump may have agreed at the G20 summit in Osaka to resu 上海乌托邦品茶微信

me trade negotiations, but the path to ending the trade war remains far from clear. After all, the two leaders had rea

ched a similar agreement at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires in December 2018 and that agreement ultimately fail

 上海乌托邦ed, not least because the United States administration mistook China’s conciliatory attitude for weakness.

Whether the US administration makes the same mistake this time remains to be seen. In any case, it is worth considering how t 上海乌托邦品茶微信

he trade war might unfold over the coming months and years – and what China can do to protect itself.

US has not withdrawn tariffs it imposed earlier

 上海乌托邦Import tariffs may, for the foreseeable future, remain steady – neither es

calating nor being rolled back. The agreement in Osaka kept the US administration from foll

owing through on its threat to impose additional tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods. But it did nothing to re 上海乌托邦品茶微信

verse past measures, such as the 15-percentage-point tariff hike, to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese p

roducts that the US implemented after the 11th round of talks broke down in May. 上海乌托邦

While these tariffs have not yet had serious consequenc

 上海乌托邦品茶微信es for China’s economy, their effects are likely to deepen over time. But China may succeed in per

suading the US to remove them – or, at least, not raise them further – if it refrains from retaliating with tariffs of its own 上海乌托邦

on US goods. Instead, China should focus on reducing its bilateral trade surplus with the US on its own terms. It is incr

easingly clear that the US tariffs have done more damage to American businesses and consumers than to China’s. 上海乌托邦品茶微信

The US wants to create among Belt and Road partner countries doubt

s about the situation in Xinjiang, which is a core region on the Silk Road Economic Belt, and

thus dissuade them from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.

Some American politicians and media will continue to proclaim

the US as the judge of the world and infringe upon other countries’ sovereignty. They are also ex

pected to hype up the Tibet issue and Taiwan question, even the Hong Kong issue. In fact, their involvement in the

recent protests against the amendments to Hong Kong’s extradition laws is cl

ear. But as a Uygur saying goes, camels march on as usual even when dogs bark furiously.

Liangzhu Museum re上海419opens to public in Hangzhou

Liangzhu Museum in East China’s Hangzhou reopened to the public Monday after 10 months of closure.

It is often said that Chinese civilization extends back 5,000 years. Now,上海419女神会所

after 15 years of intense research as part of a nationwide project to explore the origins of

上海419女神会所that civilization, archaeologists are able to back up that statement with solid physical evidence.

The results were disclosed at a news conference on Monday at the State Council Information Office.

The project has proved with physical evidence that Chinese civ上海419

ilization exhibited a multifaceted unity, said Guan Qiang, deputy director of the State Ad

上海419女神会所ministration of Cultural Heritage. “It was inclusive, and its succession has never stopped.”

Previously, some overseas scholars expressed doubts about the length of Chinese civilization due “to a lack of physical evidence”.上海419

After several years’ preparation, the project was launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the heritage administration in 2004.

上海419女神会所Nearly 70 research institutions and universities have participated in the program, which is led

by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Archaeology and Peking University’s School of Archaeology and Museology.上海419

Over 900 academic papers have been published on the proje

上海419女神会所ct, including nearly 400 released in foreign languages or in overseas journals, Guan said.

“We have done large archaeological investigations in several key, capital city-level

sites from 5,500 to 3,500 years ago,” said Wang Wei, a leader of the program from the CASS.上海419品茶微信

New discoveries kept appearing with the help of new research technologies.

Visitors now can see the latest archaeological exhibit – the ruins of the ancien

t Liangzhu city and large water projects dating back about 5,000 years in Zhejiang province.

More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area o

f 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.

The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the cult

ure of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the s

ymbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.

In January, the archaeological site was officially submitted to UNE

SCO to compete for recognition as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2019.

And when Abe visited China, 12 cooperation documents-two agreements and 10

memorandums of understanding-and 52 documents on the Belt and Road Initiative were signed between the two governments, and companies and or上海乌托邦

However, to develop Sino-Japanese relations in a way that meet the requ

上海乌托邦Politically, the two sides should abide by the principles enshrined in the four political doc

uments inked by the two governments, and ensure the two sides are cooperation partners, not a threat to ea

ch other. Exchanges and coordination at all levels, particularly those between the leaders, should be strengthened to de上海乌托邦女神会所

epen mutual trust and help Sino-Japanese ties to evolve on a friendly and cooperative track.

On the economic front, the two sides should deepen cooperat

ion in investment, third-party markets, technology and innovation so as to boost mu上海乌托邦女神会所

tual economic growth and promote regional economic integration, including accelerating the regional economic coop

eration negotiation process, encouraging enterprises to increase investments in each other’s country and bu上海乌托邦女神会所

ild a fair, nondiscriminatory and predictable business environment for companies from both sides.

The cultural bonds between the two countries need to be further strengthened. And the two sides should expedite t

heir efforts to promote youth exchanges and people-to-people engagement in order to deepen mutual un

derstanding. It is good to see that the two governments have decided to take the 2019 China-Japan Youth Exchange Pro

motion Year as an opportunity to initiate senior-level cultural exchanges to bring the two peoples closer.

for the EU to revi上海千花坊女神会所se up the nearer-term target – although

doing so has far less support as doubts remain over how to pay for the economic shift to low-

To achieve net-zero emissions, the bloc would have to invest an additional 175 billion to 290 billio

On the eve of the summit, Greenpeace activists projected the image of a bomb-sh

“With people on the streets demanding action and warnings from scientists that the window to respond is closing fast, our gove上海千花坊

Statistics from a property research institution showed that Hangzhou, with a total lan上海千花坊

According to data from the China Index Academy, a Beijing-based property research institution, the tot

During the first months of this year, the combined value of land transaction in the top 10 cities was 764.5 billion yuan, up 16 percent year-on-year.上海千花坊女神会所

Foshan in Guangzhou province, Changzhou in Jiangsu province and Shaoxing in Zhejiang province all entered the top 20 cities ranking.

In terms of planning construction areas, Wuhan, with 24.75 million square meters, took the top spo

When it comes to land purchases, Country Garden, a Hong Kong-listed proper

The enthusiasm of property developers grew as the land market showed signs of rebound since March, the academy said. Durin

Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

上海千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.上海千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for Southwest Airlines said this month it will ask B

oeing  for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.

The company is now home to more than 100 indie ban

nds and has expanded into the United States and Britain by signing Western bands. It also promote

上海千花坊s one of the country’s most popular outdoor musical events, the Strawberry Music Festival, whi

ch was launched in Beijing by the company in 2009 and has since expanded into dozens of Chinese cities.

“The first reason to form a band was to attract more girls,” says the singer-songwriter Gao Xiaosong, who formed his own band in 1990 while he was studying rada上海千花坊

r engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing. “But the most important thing was that when I learned to play guitar I wanted to explore more be

autiful sounds of the instruments, so I was eager to find people who shared my interests and who wanted to play music together with me.”

Gao is credited with creating a music genre during the 1990s called “campus folk music”, which won a

上海千花坊品茶微信large fan base in China then with poetic lyrics about youth, romance and friendship, accompanied by guitar.

One of the major contributors to indie music’ development in the country is the emerg

ing live house venues and small bars, which offer the indie rock bands stages to perform.

 live bar called School is among the most popular places for indie music bands and music fans.

School, tucked in a narrow hutong in downtown Beijing, was co-founded by Liu Fei, a former band agent and music festival organizer, about nine years ago.

“We wanted to have a place to enjoy music and drink together so we decided to l上海千花坊品茶微信

aunch School,” says Liu, 36, a Beijing native. “The place connects like-minded people.”

As Liu sat in the two-floor venue he was accompanied by a black dog that he adopted last year. He spotted the stray sitting outside the l

ive bar and decided to take it in. It was the Year of the Dog, so Liu considers her as an omen of good things and named her School, after the club.

“Like us, she really enjoys crowds and loves to listen to music,” Liu says.上海千花坊品茶微信

Among the young bands that started to give performances at School and gained a fan base is Penicillin, an indie rock group whose members were all born after 1990.

“They started with performing in front of fewer than 10 people and now they have a stable fan base with about 100,000 fol

lowers on their Sina Weibo account,” says Liu, adding that the lead vocalist and guitarist, nicked-named Xiaole, has the n

atural charisma of a rock star with his solid technique, songwriting talent and onstage composure.

h made Tantou once a renowned papermaking center in Central and South China. Since 2015, Li Qiugui, 35, has been committed to inheriting the ancient craft of ha

ndmade paper from his father Li Zhijun with the papermaking techniques such as bamboo cutting, soaking, crushing, squeezing and drying. Li Qiugui wis 上海千花坊

hes that he and his father could promote their own workshop to a papermaking research institute known nationwide.

The country’s music scene is dominated by good-looking pop idols who are chart-toppers, give sold-out concerts and bathe in the adulation of screa

ming fans. All very good for them, but it means rock bands that tend to be associated with bad boy images are often overshadowed. 上海千花坊

However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the thanks for that can go to a

reality show, The Big Band, produced by the online streaming service iQiyi that premiered on the platform on May 25.

 上海千花坊With the first group of 31 Chinese bands-both established and new-taking turns to display their songs a

nd techniques, the reality show introduces this particular indie culture, which engenders passion and zeal.

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced the golden days of Chi 上海千花坊女神会所

nese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established B

eijing-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head fro

 上海千花坊女神会所m Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiulian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.

The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所

ist Ou Yang and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The so

ng was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.
