The report said bilateral trade has been mutually benefi

e上海千花坊品茶微信ficial, and the US has reaped substantial benefits from cooperation.

“China-US economic and trade cooperation has reached unprecedented depth and breadth,” the repo

rt said, noting that bilateral trade surged to $633.5 billion last year, about 252 times that of 1979.

Since the current US administration took office, it has ignored that, said Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesman.

The US has propagated the notion of a “loss” of US trade with China and

uses the deficit as an excuse to provoke economic and trade friction, he said, ad

ding that the study was based on concrete facts and figures showing the nature and causes of the deficit.

The report shows that the US has made great profits from trade with China, Gao said.

The report found that bilateral trade in services exceeded $125 billion in 2018, and

two-way direct investment has totaled nearly $160 billion in the past four decades.

The spokesman noted that the two will have some communication and cooperation programs in the coming months.

iners developing a taste for table-for-one tren

A growing number of people are eating alone, whether at home or in restaurants, and overturning traditional etiquette. Zhang Yangfei reports.

In China, food has always played a major role in promoting social cohesion. Communal eating is not on

ly familybased and deeply rooted in the nation’s cultural heritage, but is also regarded as an indicator of society’s health and stability.

Given that background, it is little wonder that eating alone, publicly or privately, has long been considered taboo.

However, in recent years things have started to change as a r

esult of demographic shifts and the growing influence of modern lifestyles.

According to a report released last year by the global market researcher

Kantar, 46 percent of people interviewed said they had eaten alone in the previous 24 ho

urs, a rise of 9 percent from 2017, and about 16 percent expressed a preference for eating solo.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

A hearing on the proposed tariffs on Chinese imports will

 take place on June 17, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative.

Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for Internation

al Economics in Washington, said the FDRA letter will add to the pressure on Trump to reach a deal with China.

“It will not be totally ignored,” Hufbauer said.

Over the past few weeks, business groups have voiced their concern that the escalating tariffs on Chinese imports risked knocking consumers off their feet.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association, for example, said in a st

atement: “The administration’s decision to announce a tax on every product coming from China pu

ts America’s entire economy at risk. Americans’ entire shopping cart will get more expensive,” it said.

to future human development. It’s also important to fully use

education to help people learn more about the values of different civilizations and to pass down the cultures,” he said.

At the session, 44 scholars and professors from Asian countries, along with France, Russia, Germa

ny and Canada, voiced their opinions on exchanges by Asian civilizations in historical and modern times.

Chen Lai, a professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing, said

some ancient Chinese philosophers had proposed values for different civilizations.

“Confucius said that ‘A gentleman seeks harmony, not conformity’, showi

ng respect to different cultures,” he said. “Mencius proposed that we should have goo

d intentions toward others. I think it’s an inclusive attitude toward other people and their civilizations.”

therefore, can be attributed to the uncertainty over their chil

 children’s education-for instance, how many after-school classes should a child take per day and how t

o plan a schedule that would strike the right balance between study and leisure time, homework and hobbies.

Another source of stress for a mom is the relatively rich extra-curricular a

ctivities of other kids, which could prompt her to force her child to do the same. The fear that

her kid would fall behind forces a mom to make the child learn everything that she thinks could be useful.

Chinese parents usually have very high expectations for their kids, so many of them don’t even try to find out what their chil

dren are really good at-and when the kids fail to fulfill their aspirations, the parents feel they have been let down.

China’s IPR protection efforts bear fruit for foreign enterprises

China’s constant improvement of intellectual property rights pro

tection is a huge boon for popular foreign IPs like Peppa Pig to ride the country’s consum

ption boom, according to an executive from the trademark’s owner Entertainment One UK Ltd.

“There has been a very positive trend in China,” said Tim Pfeiffer

, the company’s senior vice-president of business affairs. “Our cooperation with the China Trad

emark Office has been very encouraging and we are more than happy to cooperate further.”

Beijing’s efforts have shown that it is serious about enforcing IPR protection to safeguard justice an

d social stability. Chinese courts have resulted in a 42 percent surge in intellectual property r

ights cases in 2018, according to the work reports of the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Proc

uratorate that were submitted to the country’s annual national legislative session in March.
