An amicable relationship 上海千花坊hina and Japan ser

ves the interests of the two and the region, experts sai

d, as Beijing and Tokyo resumed strategic talks after a seven-year hiatus. 上海千花坊

On Saturday, a strategic dialogue between

Le Yucheng, China’s vice-minister of foreign affairs, and his Japanese

 上海千花坊女神会所counterpart, Takeo Akiba, was held at the Karuizawa mountain resort in Japan’s Nagano prefecture.

They had what was described as candid exchanges about bilateral and regional issues and said they would push

forward the consensus reached between President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinz 上海千花坊

o Abe at the Group of 20 Summit in Osaka in June, a Foreign Ministry statement issued after the dialogue said.

“Both China and Japan advocated building a relationship that meets the requirements of the new era,” it said.

 上海千花坊女神会所The resumption of the China-Japan strategic dialogue is a key sign that Beijing a

nd Tokyo have pushed forward their bilateral relations on the right track and forged closer ties, said Lu Hao, a rese

archer at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Japanese Studies.

Official exchanges and communication mechanisms, includ 上海千花坊

ing the strategic dialogue, were suspended after the two countries becam

e mired in a dispute over China’s uninhabited Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea.

 上海千花坊女神会所Lu said the strategic dialogue mechanism plays a vital role for the two neighbors, especially as they are both fa

cing unprecedented conditions and a rapidly changing global environment.

“The dialogue not only focuses on improving bilateral ties but also touches on

some of the important regional and international issues of common interest,” Lu said, 上海千花坊女神会所

adding that boosting mutual understanding and cooperation between China and Japan, the w

orld’s second-and third-largest economies, helps promote regional stability and prosperity. 上海千花坊

On Friday, while meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, Le, the

 上海千花坊女神会所vice-minister, said China and Japan should keep up the positive momentum broug

ht by the improved ties and enhance short-term goals while strengthening long-term ones.

In a statement sent to China Daily on Thursday, the administration said the rover, China’s second m上海夜网女神会所

ovable robot on the moon after Yutu, was switched to dormant mode at around 5:50 pm on Wed

nesday after receiving signals from ground control. Yutu 2 is part of the Chang’e 4 robotic probe.

The administration s上海后花园on the lunar day tha

t just ended, Yutu 2 and Chang’e 4’s lander, which has also entered a dormancy period, obtained a great deal of scientific data.

A lunar day equals 14 days on Earth, and a lunar night is the same length. During the lunar n上海后花园

ight, the temperature falls below minus 180 C, and there is no sunlight to provide power to the probe.

上海后花园Chang’e 4 was lifted atop a Long March 3B rocket in early December at the

Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Sichuan province to make the country’s fourt

h lunar exploration and the world’s first expedition to the moon’s far side, which never faces Earth.上海后花园女神会所

The probe made a soft landing on the far side on Jan 3 and then released Y

utu 2, the world’s seventh moon rover, and also the first to get to the far side and survey t

上海后花园he South Pole-Aitken basin, the largest and deepest known basin in the solar system.

The scientific tasks of the Chang’e 4 mission include low-frequency radio a

stronomical observation, surveying the terrain and landforms, and detecting the mine上海后花园女神会所

ral composition and shallow lunar surface structure, as well as measuring neutron radiation and neutral atoms.

上海后花园As no probe had landed on the far side before Chang’e 4, all scien

tific information obtained in the mission would be new, according to Zhang He, ex

ecutive director of the Chang’e 4 program at the China Academy of Space Technology.上海后花园女神会所

China’s next lunar probe, Chang’e 5, will weigh about 8.2 metric tons and will be the largest a

上海后花园nd heaviest lunar probe ever built by the country. It will consist of four components – orbiter, lander, ascender and

re-entry module. The probe will be sent by China’s largest carrier rocket, Long March 5, from the Wenchang Space Launch C

enter in the island province of Hainan in the near future. It will collect lunar samples and bring them back to Earth.上海后花园女神会所

If the Chang’e 5 mission succeeds, China will become the third nation to retrieve lunar samples, after the United States and Russia.

he China-Kyrgyzstan “Cooperation-2019” joint counterterrorism exercise was launch

上海后花园ed on Tuesday at a training base in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

The exercise is the first joint exercise conducted by security forces of the two countri

es and will last about 10 days, according to a statement from the People’s Armed Police Force of China.上海后花园

About 150 officers and soldiers from a commando unit of the force’s Xinjiang division

and a special warfare brigade under the National Guard of Kyrgyzstan, are taking part in counterterrorism drills at

上海后花园女神会所a training base of the Xinjiang division in Urumqi, the region’s capital. They are expected to hone their capabilities in a w

ide range of fields such as joint command, basic technical training and joint tactical operations, the statement said.

“The exercise is intended to deepen security cooperation between the two co

untries, enhance the counterterrorism capability of the security forces and expan上海后花园

d the two forces’ cooperation,” Lieutenant General Yang Guangyue, deputy commander-in-chief of the Peop

le’s Armed Police Force, said at the exercise’s opening ceremony in Urumqi. He added that it does not target any third party.

上海后花园女神会所Zhou Zhen, commander of the Chinese troops in the exercise, was quoted in the statement as saying th

at his soldiers are specialized in counterterrorism operations in mountainous regions, so they

would be focused on joint tactics in mountain tasks with their Kyrgyz counterparts.

The People’s Armed Police Force has been gearing up its exchange and collaborat上海后花园

It held an international counterterrorism forum in Beijing in June to boost communication and coopera

上海后花园女神会所tion in the fight against terrorism. It was the third time the Chinese force had organized such a forum since 2016.

In addition, the force has also hosted two international contests for snipers since that year.

Beijing lodges protest o上海419s meeting withparatists

The Commissioner’s Office of China’s Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong has lodged stern representations with US Consu

late General on its officer meeting “Hong Kong Independence” activists, a statement on the office’s website said on Thursday.上海419品茶微信

The statement came after it was reported that an officer at the US Consulate Gene

上海419ral in Hong Kong and Macao held a meeting with major “Hong Kong Independence” activists.

An official at the Commissioner’s Office urgently summoned a senior official at the US Consulate General to lodge stern repres

entations, expressing strong disapproval and firm opposition, and requiring clarification, according to the statement.

The official of the Commissioner’s Office emphasized that China is rock-firm in upholding natio上海419

nal sovereignty and security and Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, and in opposing any inter

ference in Hong Kong affairs by any country, organization or individual in whatever form, the statement said.

上海419品茶微信We strongly urge the members of the US Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao to abide by international law and basic

norms governing international relations, including the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the

Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, and observe their obligations as consular personnel, said the statement.上海419

They are urged to immediately make a clean break from anti-China forces who stir up tro

uble in Hong Kong, stop sending out wrong signals to violent offenders, refrain from meddling with

上海419品茶微信Hong Kong affairs, and avoid going further down the wrong path, said the statement.

China’s foreign trade of goods rose 4.2 percent year-on-year in the first seven m

onths of this year to 17.41 trillion yuan ($2.49 trillion), customs data showed Thursday.

Exports increased 6.7 percent year-on-year to 9.48 trillion yuan during the period,上海419

while imports grew 1.3 percent to 7.93 trillion yuan, the General Administration of Customs (GAC) said.

China saw its trade surplus widen by 47.4 percent year-on-year to 1.55 trillion yuan during the same period.

上海419品茶微信China’s trade mix continued to optimize with the general trade growing both in volume a

nd proportion in the January-July period. General trade grew 5.7 percent year-on-year and accounted for 5

9.8 percent of the total trade, 0.8 percentage points higher than the same period of last year.

Despite reductions in th上海龙凤of labor, the slowdow

own in economic growth will result in more sluggish labor demand,” he said.

上海龙凤He added that the manufacturing sector has been troubled by weak expor

ts and sluggish prices, while the construction sector is suffering from sliding inve

stment. Both sectors played important roles in stabilizing employment, he added.上海龙凤

The authorities should adopt measures to further improve the business environment, especially for private and smal

上海龙凤l and medium-sized enterprises, which accounted for more than 90 percent of urban employment.

“It is also important to enable further opening-up in the servic

e sector, especially for finance, education, medical care and telecommunications,” he said.上海龙凤女神会所

During the second quarter of this year, China’s smartphone shipments totaled 97.9 mil

lion units, down 6.1 percent year-on-year, the latest report from the International Data Corporation showed.

上海龙凤Smartphone vendors shipped a total of 180 million phones during the first six months, down 5.4 percent from a year earlier.

During the second quarter and the first six months, most manufacturers’ new product rel上海龙凤女神会所

上海龙凤rts into the domestic market and its shipment performance exceeded expectations.

Huawei maintained the top position in the market, with shipment volumes of 36.3 million units, up 27 percent from the year-ago

period. Its market share rose to 37 percent from 27.4 percent. The tech giant was also the only company that regi上海龙凤女神会所

stered an increase in shipments among the top five smartphone makers, IDC report showed.

Vivo, with shipments of 18.3 million units and a market share of 18.7 percent, came in sec

ond. It was followed by OPPO, whose shipments fell 13.9 percent to 18.2 million units.上海龙凤

Xiaomi ranked fourth. Its smartphone shipments fell 19.3 percent, the biggest drop amo

From bilateral to multilateral forums, the US has been using ever

上海夜生活y platform to put “maximum pressure” on China in the hope that it would cave in.

Yet, has its approach worked?It’s evident to all, especially market players, that the increasing

ly dirty pressure tactics used by the US have not caused any visible damage to China’s real e上海夜生活品茶微信

conomy, including industrial production. Instead, the US leader’s decision to impose additional tariffs on m

ore Chinese goods caused Wall Street to dive into the red with stock indexes sliding on Thursday.上海夜生活

Also, the US is vulnerable to suffering greater damage if there is t

urmoil in the financial sector since the US economy depends more heavily on it than China.

上海夜生活品茶微信United States overvalues its economic strength

The US economy, despite registering 120 months of continuous growth i

n June, faces increasing threat of recession. Could anything other than waning co上海夜生活

nfidence in the economy have prompted the US Federal Reserve to sharply cut interest rates?

More importantly, the US should learn something from China. From being an impoverished and backward agricultural c

上海夜生活品茶微信ountry in the past, China has become the world’s biggest manufacturer and exporter, and second-largest economy.

As early as 2013, it accounted for one-third of the global equipment manufacturing-and its exports were one a

China has also overcome numerous setbacks and major external shocks, any of whic

Resilient China has weathered many storms上海夜生活品茶微信

China’s industrialization started in the 1949-52 period when it was struggling to recover from the

上海后花园market economy, and take more measures that benefit others as well as itself,” Cong added.

Hong Junjie, a professor of international trade at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, said tha

t while China was looking for reasonably priced agricultural products from the US, it was also making targeted adjust上海后花园女神会所

ments to its supply chain of agricultural imports, largely motivated by the ongoing Sino-US trade dispute.

“This move will not only enhance its food security, but may also further improve the quality of ag

ricultural products, bringing its people more options of farm goods across the world,” Hong added.上海后花园女神会所

“The US must be aware that China’s purchase of agricultural product

s is only based on reasonable market prices and good quality, and the country certainly

上海后花园has many choices in global markets,” said Huo Jianguo, vice-chairman of the China Society for WTO Studies.

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

上海后花园女神会所”Moreover, the impact has affected to the whole industrial chain. The growing trade tension can only hold back

purchases in the market and cause price competition that damages the market environment,” he said.

On Thursday, the day after the 12th round of trade talks concluded on a “constructive” note, according to US neg

Toshiyasu Iiyama, executiv上海夜生活resident of Nom

The goal is to grow itself into a comprehensive securities firm in China by sett

Public information shows five companies, including Hanhua Finance and Xiamen Fig Group, obtained the first feedb

上海夜生活品茶微信ack on May 17 from the CSRC regarding their application to set up joint-venture brokerages in the country.

With that, 18 companies are on the waiting list. The CSRC will la

ter provide a second feedback that will either approve or reject their applications.

For the international leaders who have not yet established a joint venture in China or those who have faced bumps in the上海夜生活

ir mapping in China, the limit lifted one year in advance may indicate that they will skip the joint venture option by se

上海夜生活品茶微信tting up a wholly-owned foreign entity here, said Henry Wang, a director with S&P Global.

In an announcement released by Shanghai-based Orient Secur

ities in early January, the company has received a notice from Citi Asia to cease the coo上海夜生活

peration between the two companies and transfer all its 33-percent stake in the joint venture to Orient Securities.

Industry insiders said that Citi had expressed willingness to increase its control in the eight-year-old joint venture in l

上海夜生活品茶微信ight of the relaxed grip from the central regulators. But the efforts turned out to be a failure.

The abortive attempt of Citi with Orient Securities may help the New York-headquartered financial leader to make up it

s mind and found a securities firm which it holds 100 percent control, as industry insiders inferred. Although Citi did上海夜生活

not make any comment on that, its Hong Kong-based spokesman James Griffiths said in a reply to China Daily th

at “Citi welcomes any move that leads to the further opening-up of the Chinese financial system”.

上海夜生活品茶微信Regarding the foreign securities firms’ more ambitious goals in China, Richard Huang, partner at McKinsey& Co, sugge
