war is intensifying within the US. For example, the US Chamber of Commerce – one of the country’s most powerful bu
上海会所siness lobbies – has called for the reversal of all tariffs imposed over the past two years.
The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment
. In recent years, rising Chinese production costs have driven many foreign enterp上海会所女神会所
rises – and, increasingly, even Chinese enterprises – to relocate their operations to lower-cost countries such as
Vietnam and Thailand. The trade war is accelerating this process. According to the Vietnamese government, inward for
上海会所eign direct investment increased by nearly 70 percent year-on-year in the first five months of 2019, the highest such i
ncrease since 2015. Meanwhile, the growth of US investment in China is slowing.上海会所女神会所
Essential to improve investment environment
上海会所The US administration wants American companies to leave China. It is u
p to China to persuade them to stay. That means improving the local investment envi
ronment, including responding to foreign companies’ justifiable complaints – say, by strengthening intellectual p上海会所
roperty rights protection – and, more broadly, better adhering to World Trade Organization rules.
But the pressure on China does not end there. The US is also eager to exclude the count
上海会所女神会所ry’s high-tech companies from global value chains. Trump recently announced that he would allow US co
mpanies to continue to sell to Chinese high-tech giant Huawei, after a months-long campaign against the company. But it r
emains highly unlikely that the US administration – which reversed a similarly aggressive policy toward sm
artphone company ZTE last year – will abandon its efforts to strangle China’s high-tech industries.上海会所女神会所
China has three options. First, it could accede to US pressure to disengage from global value chains. Second, it could remain
committed to integration, hoping that, thanks to existing interconnections, sanctions on Chinese high-tech com上海会所
panies will also hurt their US counterparts (such as Qualcomm) enough for the US administration to back d
上海会所女神会所own. The third option is to focus on supporting domestic high-tech companies’ effo
rts to strengthen their own positions within global value chains and develop contingency plans.
it has hyped up the problems in Xinjiang. Some American people and organizations have openly suppor

p, and by disseminating its separatist ideas through publicity and diplomatic channels in the disguise of human rights an
上海乌托邦d freedom. No wonder they call white black and assume the measures China has taken in Xinjiang to fight terrorism, se
paratism and extremism and improve public welfare are human rights violations.
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.
The China-skeptics in the United States are at it again. This time they are using the pretext of huma
n rights violation to criticize China’s policy of combating terrorism and separatism in the Xinjiang Uygu上海419论坛
r autonomous region and improving the livelihoods of the people there. But by so doing, they have exposed their ulterior motives,
上海419论坛女神会所not least because they have no evidence to prove their allegations, and thus become the target of both ridicule and anger.
This group of people has always claimed it wants to “help” China furth
er the human rights cause while, ironically, not paying any attention to the US’ horrible hu上海419论坛
man rights record. Which makes people wonder whether the American people
上海419论坛女神会所elected those “patriots” to “make America great again”, or just to poke their nose into other countries’ internal affairs.
As we Chinese say, seeing is believing and ignorance spreads rumor. The US is thousands of kilometers away from Xinji
ang, and few of those finger-in-every-pie China-skeptics have actually visited this part of the world. Yet they ac上海419论坛女神会所
cept as true rumors about Xinjiang that some people have made it their job to spread.
vespite repeated invitations from the central and local governments to foreign dignitaries, envoys and journalists to visit Xin
jiang, the publication of ample reports, data, photographs and videos showcasing Xinjiang’s development, and the issu上海419论坛女神会所
ance of a white paper on Xinjiang’s human rights condition, those China-skeptics turn a blind eye to the facts.
上海419论坛女神会所The authors who have penned a book on the region – Xinjiang: China’s Muslim Borderland – did visi

judice. Thus, for those who have a political agenda to serve, facts are the first thing to ignore, twist or play with.上海419论坛
Some say this is a result of differences in cultures and values. Yet since the white color is a symbol of purity in one culture and of
supremacism in another, bullying others to attribute just one meaning to a color is nothing but hegemony.上海419论坛
There is little doubt that some politicians in the US and other Western countries have an ulterior motive
behind their seeming concern for Xinjiang residents. And not surprisingly, the motive is directly li
nked with the US’ politics, ideology and global strategy. Showing a sudden interest in Xinjiang after the end of th

Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for el
ectrifying and awe-inspiring Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海后花园
Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a
上海后花园venue for dance dramas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.
After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perman
ent theme. Chinese acrobatics is a spectacular performance art characterized by amazing physical fe上海后花园品茶微信

Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was inspired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app
上海后花园eared during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). It was refined during the Western Han Dynasty (206 B
C-AD 24), when pole climbing and tightrope walking debuted on stage. The most famous performance at that time, Gu
ang Chang Bai Xi, saw a rich variety of acrobatic acts performed simultaneously in a public square.上海后花园品茶微信
Chaoyang Theatre currently stages about 1,000 dazzling performances every year, includ
ing up to four daily shows in its 1,300-seat performance hall during peak season from May to October.
上海后花园品茶微信Many renowned acrobatics troupes have graced the stage at the theater, among them Deyang Acrobatic Troupe from Sou

The show celebrates the ancient worship of the sun and birds by the people of Sichuan tho

The storytelling mixes flips, falls, dance and high-wire spectacle with the latest in high-tech sound and lighting, to whisk the
audiences away to the world of Sichuan some 3,000 years ago. At the show’s climax, live peacocks and macaws f上海后花园品茶微信
