The “contraction” trend is becoming increasingly prominent in the United States’ foreign policy thanks to its “Am
erica first” approach. Once the major provider of global public goods, the US is becoming a penny-pinching country focu
上海乌托邦sed solely on its national interests and thus weakening its international leadership.
Yet despite the contraction of its diplomacy, the US has gone on th
e offensive on particular issues, trade being the most prominent. Launching tra 上海乌托邦
de wars against nearly all major economies such as China, the European Union and Japan, the White House is
using the trade brawls to appeal to the US leader’s base even though tariff-slapping at will, and 上海乌托邦品茶微信
without any reason, goes against established trade practices and the World Trade Organization’s rules.
上海乌托邦Besides, the US administration has shown an inclination toward revisionism on the Taiwan question, with a number of pro-Taiwan of
ficials holding key decision-making positions in the US. The US leader’s phone call to Taiwan leader Tsai Ingwe
n and his statement to substantially improve “US-Taiwan relations”, together with the US’ other provocativ
e moves including sailing aircraft carriers through the Taiwan Straits and endorsing laws such as the Taiwan Tr 上海乌托邦品茶微信
vel Act and Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018 are all aimed at checking the Chinese mainland’s rise.
Since the US could try to ratchet up tensions across the Straits and
some separatist elements on the island could deman 上海乌托邦d “Taiwan independence” in a bid to r
estrain the mainland, Beijing should be fully prepared to deal with any eventuality.

As the nation strives to rejuvenate its culture, it needs to be more inclusive to extensively develop cultural exchanges wit上海楼凤品茶微信

Northeastern province to ban release of some animals to safeguard ecosystem
A revised draft of Heilongjiang’s Wild Animals Protection Regulation, presented to the Standing Committee of t
上海楼凤he provincial People’s Congress recently, aims to strengthen protection of wildlife habitats and food chains.
It said those transporting and selling wildlife and related products should follow laws and provide relevant certificates.
The regulation would ban the unauthorized release of aquatic animals into the上海楼凤

The regulation would also ban the release of wild animal species that are not nat

Although it might be the US suppliers of Huawei that care more about the outcome than the Chinese telecommu上海千花坊

“I was shocked to see so many children waiting in line with their parents and relatives outside the clinics to see the doctors,” she said.
Although congenital heart diseases are usually identified and treated very e

“Though the diagnosis was free, many of the children recommended by local Red Crescent bran上海千花坊女神会所

At the same time, the tariff proposal shows that Washington has turned a blind eye to the tremendous efforts made by both n
上海乌托邦品茶微信ations in advancing their economic and trade ties, Wang said at a recent seminar in Beijing.
The US announced the new tariff threat shortly after the 12th round of high-level trade talks in late Ju
ly. If the plan takes effect, the US will put additional tariffs on basically all Chinese goods coming into the US. 上海乌托邦
On Tuesday, the Office of the US Trade Representative said it will delay 10 percent ta
riffs on certain Chinese products, including laptops and cellphones, until Dec 15.
Yang Weiyong, an economics professor at the University of International Business and Ec 上海乌托邦品茶微信
onomics in Beijing, said the US tariff delay is more out of consideration for its own interests－creating sufficient time
for its consumers and trading companies to look for substitute goods in other markets.
“Besides, the US did so because of concerns over the Christmas shopping season. Th
上海乌托邦e government intends to reduce the potential impact of tariffs on US holiday shopping,” Yang said.
But the US plan to merely delay some tariffs by no means sho
ws Washington’s sincerity toward advancing future consultations, Yang said. 上海乌托邦品茶微信
According to a Reuters analysis, the delay may encompass around half of th
e $300 billion list of remaining Chinese imports. Chinese imports subject to the tariffs as of 上海乌托邦
Dec 15 totaled about $156 billion last year, Reuters said, citing US Census Bureau information.
Sun Lipeng, a research fellow with the China Institutes of Contemporary International 上海乌托邦品茶微信

Washington’s new tariff plan will further burden US consumers and dam
