China says ties with India now see progress

China says ties with India now see progress

One-month old pigs stand in a pen at Duncan Farms in Polo, Illinois, US April 9, 2018.

It seems the spike has been driven by exporters fretting over tariff hikes prompted by Donald Trump's threats of a trade war.

"We hope both China and the USA can solve the disputes with wisdom and respect", Huang Songping, a spokesman for the customs administration, said last Friday at a briefing in Beijing.

The list announced Friday was linked to Trump's steel and aluminum tariffs, but companies already were looking ahead to a battle over complaints Beijing steals or forces companies to hand over technology.

"He's going to open it up, take down a lot of the trade barriers - maybe all of them - but take down a lot of trade barriers".

Just Thursday, Trump ordered his top aides to look at reentering the 11-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership, from which he withdrew right after taking office, generating a wave of optimism.

Concentrations of particulate matter of less than 2.5 microns, known as PM2.5, climbed to 80 micrograms per cubic metre in the region last month, an increase of 27 percent from a year ago, the ministry said.

The main source of concern is the escalating tensions with China after Trump last month imposed steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, and then then hit Beijing with punitive duties in retaliation for massive theft of U.S. intellectual property.

"If you are those without special technology or products, you will die", said Rose Qiu, a director with Zhejiang Fonda Technology, another LED maker.

Chinese President Xi Jinping attended a massive military drill by the country's naval forces in the South China Sea, and stressed that the need for a strong navy "has never been more pressing". Too bad we couldn't have done it the other way around.

And still to come are tightened restrictions on Chinese investment in sensitive US sectors, due in about a month from the US Treasury Department.

Xi, clad in camouflage military fatigues, observed 48 vessels, 76 aircraft and more than 10,000 service personnel at the South China Sea naval hub of Sanya, including the aircraft carrier Liaoning, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

We may have differing perceptions on our borders but India and China coming together to try and bargain for lower oil prices from West Asian crude producers is a welcome step.

While the speech offered little new policy and made no mention of Trump, Xi affirmed or expanded on proposals to increase imports, lower foreign-ownership limits on manufacturing and expand protection to intellectual property - all issues central to the USA president's trade complaints.

China is now working on a new 2018-2020 action plan to tackle pollution, and experts have urged the government to introduce more targeted measures to tackle rising ground-level ozone, which has become a growing urban health threat.

"'Now we're really negotiating and I think they're going to treat us really fairly", Trump said.

"If you read carefully the speech Xi gave, you have to give Trump a fair amount of credit".

Trump left time to negotiate.

"The madman theory works sometimes, especially when it's not a theory".

Chinese state broadcaster China Central Television showed footage of the President boarding one of his destroyers which then sailed to an unnamed location in the contentious waters to watch the drills. Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen has infuriated China by refusing to endorse the one-China framework while offering to sign a USA free-trade deal and buy more advanced American arms.
