Global retail giant Walmart Inc is planning to further increase its investment in th

The US-based multinational said on Monday it would spend around 8 billion yuan
上海会所($1.16 billion) over the next 10 years to build or upgrade over 10 distribution centers to boost online
and offline businesses to meet Chinese customers’ demand for fresh goods and convenient services.
The investment plan came a day after China released a revised list of industries for foreig上海会所品茶微信
n investment, which includes logistics of ordinary goods, cold chain logistics for fresh agricultural goods and special medicines.
Walmart is looking for sustainable and quality growth in the Chinese market and the revised
上海会所品茶微信foreign investment list further supports its investment plan for upgrading local logistics
supply chains, said Ryan McDaniel, senior vice-president of supply chain with Walmart China.

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 tarif
fs imposed over the past two years. The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment
. In recent years, rising Chinese produ
ction 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
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
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.

“They are closely related, but this is the first time
that they can be seen together,” he adds. According to Huo Wei, an archaeology professor from Chengdu-based Sichuan Universit 上海会所
y, the rising power of the Tubo regime in the latter half of the 9th century enabled it to build up a huge n
etwork of trade routes connecting it with the rest of China, South Asia and Central Asia. 上海会所品茶微信
“The Tubo people introduced Buddhist art from the Tang regions an
d what was today’s Nepal, along with techniques in craftsmanship for making gold and silver art
上海会所ifacts from Persia,” Huo explains. “It amassed a huge number of silk pieces through trade, despite the fact that Tubo pe
ople never learned how to make silk, probably due to the restrictions within their natural environment.
“We like to refer to it as the Silk Road on the Plateau,” he explains. “It was an indispensable part of the ancient Silk Road.” 上海会所品茶微信
Pritzker says: “Studies of Tibetan culture around the world have largely been influen
