Hua Changchun, an analyst with Guotai Junan Securities, said the biggest impact of the planned new tariffs o
n the US will be inflation, and it will cause urgent need for the US to find new sources of good suppliers.
上海乌托邦Hua said even though the US planned tariffs targeting Chinese goods will reduce China’s e
xports, US importers also need to bear tariffs and seek new import suppliers from other countries, wh

Which is the position FedEx finds itself in now.
It has claimed that it misdirected three of Chinese telecommuni上海乌托邦品茶微信
cations giant Huawei’s packages to the United States in May due to what it called “operational error”.
上海乌托邦Yet investigation by the Chinese authorities has found these were not due to any
oversight but rather part of a deliberate pattern of behavior in which the US ex
press services company is also suspected of holding up more than 100 Huawei packages entering China, as well as other violations of the law.上海乌托邦
And with the investigation still on-going, it is expected that more wrongdoings are yet to be revealed.
上海乌托邦Responding to China’s investigation on Friday, FedEx blamed the mishandling of the packages on the “unclear” rules of the US Com
merce Department, claiming they bring “great complexity” to its operation. “That is why we sued” the department, it said.
As one of the first foreign express delivery companies coming to China nearly 40 year上海乌托邦品茶微信
s ago, FedEx is well aware of China’s postal law. But it has obviously underestimated the country’s dete
rmination to enforce it to the letter. Otherwise, it would have not given such a feeble excuse when it was discovered to have
上海乌托邦delivered the three Huawei packages to the US, not their intended destination, which for one of the top-no

上海乌托邦Looking ahead to the future of China-UK partnership in higher education, he hopes that both sides c

上海乌托邦品茶微信tudents enrolled in the global engagement program launched
by Shanghai Jiao Tong University on June 26 will be engaged in tackling typical issues

上海乌托邦The projects cover research and surveys on specific themes before com

Ten of the projects will be carried out during the summer, while the remaining thre上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦More than 200 students are expected to join the program, according to the university.
“Every project is challenging as most of the students have never set foot in these areas,” says Cao Yongk

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.

Detailed measures of the plan are to be disclosed at a later date.
The list will target companies, people and organizations that fail to abide by market rules, violate th
e spirit of contract, block Chinese companies for non-commercial reasons, and severely violate Chinese co
mpanies’ legitimate rights, said Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesman, in a media briefing on Friday.
“Due to the increasing uncertainties in the global economy, including
the rising trade protectionism and unilateralism, the multilateral trading system is facing s
evere challenges and regular international commercial activities have been disrupted,” Gao said.
