rcing to countries other than China under the tariff specter, the FDRA said there had been com
panies moving away, but “footwear is a very capital-intensive industry, with years of planning required to m
ake sourcing decisions, and companies cannot simply move factories to adjust to these changes”.
Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowme
nt for International Peace, said the footwear industry’s complaints are justifiable, albeit a little late.
“Since their issues do not involve critical technologies, the
re might be room for the administration to offer a degree of relief,” Paal told China Daily.
The app and database will help us gather more precise and well-rounded data on the population, distri
bution, ages, gender ratio, birth and deaths of wild pandas, who live in deep mountains and are hard to tr
ack,” said Chen Peng, a researcher with the base who co-authored a paper on “Giant Panda Face Recognition Using Small Database.”
“It will definitely help us improve efficiency and effectiveness in conservation and management of the animals,” Chen said.
China has carried out four scientific field research project of giant pandas in the wild.
The giant panda was scientifically discovered 150 years ago and n
amed in the city of Ya’an, Sichuan. It remains one of the world’s most endangered species.
The number of captive pandas was 548 globally as of November last y
ear. Fewer than 2,000 pandas live in the wild, mostly in the provinces of Sichuan and Shaanxi.
pplication software platforms of the Fengyun satellites for weather forecasting, as well as climate and environment monitoring.
They also requested a range of services, especially in monitoring rainfall, droughts, dust stor
ms, heavy fog and lightning, in addition to training courses on Fengyun meteorological satellite data ana
lysis, remote-sensing applications and data collection.
Many countries along the Belt and Road have high mountains, deserts, oc
eans and a lack of accurate meteorological information. The number of me
teorological disasters in the regions is more than double the global average, the administration said.
Wei Caiying, deputy general-director of the National Satellite Meteorol
ogical Center, said that real-time disaster monitoring by meteorological satellites co
uld provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.
March 29 exit from the EU, May’s Conservatives suffered major losses in local election
s this month and are trailing in opinion polls before May 23 European Parliament elections.
With Labour and Brexit-supporting rebels in the Conservatives p
lanning to vote against her deal, it is unlikely to be approved as things stand.
Pro-Brexit Conservative lawmakers were unimpressed with May’s failure to set a firm date to quit. One, who declined to be na
med, described it as “yet further procrastination which is causing appalling damage to the Conservative Party.”
Another, Andrew Bridgen, said May was “an increasingly beleaguered and isolated prim
e minister who is desperate to salvage something from her premiership and is prepared to drive thro
ugh an agreement that would fatally hamstring any future prime minister in negotiations with the EU.”
inds of market-driven reforms needed to make this happen. The Chinese government is investing heavily in resear
ch and development, but it should be noted that the R&D spending as a percentage of GDP is still lower than that of the US.
Nobody likes competition against themselves. So, it must be admitted that China’s transition to a high-tech, high-
value-added economy will come as a shock to many companies around the world. The US economy, which has about 7
percent of GDP in high-tech manufacturing, will be lightly affected by this change.
On the other hand, advanced manufacturing contributes around 20 percent of GDP in Sout
h Korea, Japan, Germany and a few smaller European countries. They will be much more directly affected.
growth targets, based on excessively low estimates of potential growth, lead to lower actual growth. Fo
r an economy the size of China’s, a difference of even 1 percentage point has a huge impact on welfare.
Many economists would counter that a conservative growth target is useful－or even necessary－to create space for struct
ural adjustment. But this claim is unconvincing. Reducing China’s excessive reliance on investment in real es
tate－one of the economy’s most serious structural problems－does not necessarily require a reduction in FAI gro
wth, let alone GDP growth. Nor is slower GDP growth a prerequisite for improving financial stability.
China must pursue as high a growth rate as possible
In my view, because no one is sure what exactly China’s potential growth rate is, the best strategy is to try to achieve as high a g
rowth rate as possible, so long as it doesn’t worsen inflation and hinder structural adjustment.
China will further cut the number of items requiring certificatio
n and refine the procedures through institutional inno
vation to improve government services and foster a more enabling business environment.
The decision was made at the State Council’s executive meeting, chaired by Premier Li Keqiang on Sunday.
Participants at the meeting agreed that the government’s efforts in recent years to repeal unwarranted certification requ
irements and deepen the reform of government functions have produced notable results.
“These are crucial steps benefiting both companies and individuals
,” Li said. “At a time when the economy still faces uncertainties, removing these unjustified cer
tification requirements will help boost market vitality and improve the business environment.”
With Chairman Mao Zedong proclaiming the founding of the People’s Republic of China on
Oct 1, 1949, the Chinese people began leaving behind a century of colonial humiliation and building a new life.
What remains poorly understood by the wider world even seven decades later is how dire were
the conditions in China during those days. While China sustained its triumph, Chinese people’s living stan
dard 70 years ago was barely 5 percent relative to their counterparts in the United States.
It was a dire starting point.
Transitions that raised China’s living standard
In the late 1970s, Deng Xiaoping introduced “reform and opening-up” policies
and established special economic zones, which ultimately facilitated China’s entry int
cult to legally protect in the past, causing “huge trouble for American tech
nology companies in protecting core and critical technologies” that they could not patent.
The latest amendments to the Anti-Unfair Competition Law, which unde
rwent a substantial revision in 2017, have emphasized protecting trade secrets.
He said in that in January, China’s Supreme People’s Cour
t set up an IPR court to handle complex appeals on patent litigation.
Chan said “all these measures” have led to progress for 59 percent of t
he US companies operating in China in protecting trademarks and brands in the pa
st five years, according to the American Chamber of Commerce in China.
