News from China
US negotiators need to show sincerity, reason at Shanghai talks
30th July 2019

 Negotiators from China and the United States are relaunching consultations to fix their strained trade relations on Tuesday in Shanghai.

 
It is the first formal sit-down between the two negotiating teams after their trade talks hit a wall in May and were brought back on track during a meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart, Donald Trump, on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit held in the Japanese city of Osaka in June.
 
After the summit, the delegations of the two countries have maintained contact. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He talked with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin twice over the phone before the two sides decided to relaunch their trade consultations in Shanghai.
 
It is also the first time that they held the trade talks outside their capital cities, and Shanghai, venue for this new round of consultations, has its special place in the history of China-US relations.
 
In 1972, when then US President Richard Nixon paid an ice-breaking visit to China, the two sides issued the "Shanghai Communique" in the sincere hope of normalizing bilateral ties after more than two decades of estrangement.
 
Today once again in the metropolis of Shanghai, US negotiators need to demonstrate that same sincerity and, more importantly, reasonable expectations in the relaunched trade talks with their Chinese counterparts in a bid to normalize bilateral trade relations.
 
For more than a year, China and the United States, in a bid to settle their trade disputes, have held 11 rounds of high-level talks, during which Beijing has demonstrated its utmost sincerity to overcome differences between the two sides in pursuit of an agreement that can satisfy both.
 
However, some US trade hawks have chosen to turn a blind eye to China's legitimate interests and put forward unrealistic demands that infringe upon China's sovereignty and dignity. China-bashers like Steven Bannon even tried to ride the waves of the tariff war to hype up anti-China sentiment and contain China's development. These provocative actions ultimately led to an impasse in dialogue.
 
In the ongoing round of trade talks, the US side needs to engage in consultations on the basis of equality and treat China with due respect if it wants a trade deal. However, if Washington still holds the illusion that Beijing will somehow cave in and compromise on issues concerning sovereignty and other related core interests to reach a deal, then no deal is fine. China will always find a way to withstand any pressure.
 
The economic and trade cooperation between China and the United States is mutually beneficial in nature. And as Washington is trying to wage a tariff war against China, it is hurting its own economy and people. According to research conducted by economists from the New York Federal Reserve and Princeton and Columbia universities, the tariff war cost American companies and consumers US$4.4 billion a month in 2018.
 
Moreover, as trade disputes linger, the world economy is suffering as well. Morgan Stanley's chief economist Chetan Ahya has said, "As uncertainty around trade policy is unresolved, the impact on the growth outlook is becoming more pronounced."
 
For the benefit of both sides and the world at large, China and the United States need to cherish the hard-won resumption of trade talks and accomodate each other's core interests so as to pave the way for an early deal.
 
Forty-seven years ago, "the Shanghai Communique" has shown the courage of the leaders of the two countries to come together over huge ideological gaps for not only the interests of the two peoples, but also the easing of tensions in the world. It is hoped that this time, the Chinese and US trade negotiators can pluck up some courage as their predecessors did and work together for sturdier and more fruitful bilateral trade relations.

Progress made as China buys US soybeans
29th July 2019

 Millions of tons of American soybeans have been shipped out to China, the latest progress in the purchase of US agricultural products by Chinese enterprises after a June meeting of the two heads of state in Osaka, official sources said on Sunday.

 
Meanwhile, the US administration has announced the exemption of additional tariffs imposed on 110 items of Chinese industrial products and expressed its willingness to prompt the US businesses to continue providing supplies for related Chinese enterprises.
 
These have shown the two sides’ readiness to implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state in Osaka, according to sources with the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Commerce.
 
The US-China trade war has curbed the export of US crops to China, with soybean sales falling sharply after Beijing slapped tariffs of 25 percent on American cargoes.
 
Since July 19, some Chinese firms have inquired with US suppliers about the new purchases of US farm produce including soybeans, cotton, pork and sorghum. Currently, a batch of deals have been made in line with market conditions.
 
The Chinese enterprises involved have applied for the lifting of additional tariffs on some of the US farm produce, and the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council will handle their applications according to stipulated procedures.
 
Chinese enterprises will continue to make inquiries based on domestic market demand about the purchase of US agricultural products including soybeans, cotton, pork, sorghum, wheat, corn and dairy products.
 
Additional deals are expected to be made as long as the US products are reasonably priced and of premium quality.
 
Chinese and US negotiators are set to meet in Shanghai this week for the first time since the summit, with talks to start on tomorrow.
 
China brought in 614,805 tons of soybeans from the United States in June, down 2.5 percent from June 2018 and down 37 percent from 977,024 tons in May, customs data released on Saturday showed.
 
The sources said that the US side should take concrete measures to fulfill its promises and create favorable conditions for the economic and trade consultations between the two sides.

Death toll rises to 15 in SW China landslide
25th July 2019

 The death toll has risen to 15 after a landslide hit southwest China's Guizhou Province, local authorities said Thursday.

 
As of 8am Thursday, 15 people had been found dead, another 11 were rescued, and an estimated 30 remained missing.
 
At about 9:20pm Tuesday, a landslide lashed a village in Shuicheng County of the city of Liupanshui, burying 21 houses. More than 50 people were living in the affected area when the landslide struck, according to rescuers.
 
The 11 rescued are receiving treatment at hospitals. Rescue work is still underway.
 
"I heard a rumbling when the slide struck, and my house collapsed not long after I ran out of it," said Mao Changshun, a villager who was under treatment for two broken ribs and head injuries.
 
"Family is my hope, and I'm holding on," Mao said, insisting on walking by himself outside the ward.
 
Rescuers are also plodding through the mud, searching for any possible sign of life. Personnel from medical, emergency, transportation and other departments are holding their positions in the site.
 
"Rescue forces will never give up hope and will spare no effort in their search and rescue work," said Lei Bangyuan with the emergency rescue team.
 
As of Wednesday night, more than 20 large-scale excavators and over 100 rescue vehicles have been sent to the site. Rescuers also set up more than 100 tents to help with the rescue work. Relief goods including food and medicine have been sent to the site.
 
A state-level emergency medical team called up by the National Health Commission has arrived at the site, with three leading medical experts from Beijing helping local doctors treat the injured.
 
A 30-million-yuan (US$4.35 million) disaster relief fund has been allocated by the ministries of finance and emergency management and will be used to support the search, rescue and relocation of victims, as well as other disaster relief work.

China issues white paper on national defense in new era
24th July 2019

 China on Wednesday issued a white paper to expound on its defensive national defense policy in the new era and explain the practice, purposes and significance of China's efforts to build a fortified national defense and a strong military.

 
The white paper titled "China's National Defense in the New Era," consisting of 27,000 Chinese characters, was released by the State Council Information Office, with a view to helping the international community better understand China's national defense.
 
The main body of the white paper was divided into six sections: the international security situation, China's defensive national defense policy in the new era, fulfilling the missions and tasks of China's armed forces in the new era, reform in China's national defense and armed forces, reasonable and appropriate defense expenditure, and actively contributing to building a community with a shared future for mankind.
 
It is the 10th white paper on national defense the Chinese government has issued since 1998 and the first comprehensive one since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012.
 
A number of figures were also used in the white paper and 10 tables on topics such as the breakdown of China's defense expenditure and international cooperation activities were added as appendices.
 
Win-win cooperation remain the irreversible trends of the times, the white paper noted, adding that there are prominent destabilizing factors and uncertainties in international security, and the world is not yet a tranquil place.
 
China firmly believes that hegemony and expansion are doomed to failure, and security and prosperity shall be shared, said the white paper.
 
According to the white paper, resolutely safeguarding China's sovereignty, security and development interests is the fundamental goal of China's national defense in the new era, whose distinctive feature is never seeking hegemony, expansion or spheres of influence.
 
Identifying this feature, the white paper clearly demonstrated the defensive nature of China's national defense policy and the transparency of its strategic intent, said Shi Qingren, an associate research fellow with the Academy of Military Sciences (AMS) of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.
 
"The white paper, for the first time, outlines China's national defense policy system," said Cao Yanzhong, an AMS research fellow. "It clearly shows the world the strategic direction, basic principles and global significance of the development of China's national defense and the Chinese armed forces."
