“The United States is very concerned that the digital services tax which is expected to pass the French Senate tomorrow un

fairly targets American companies,” USTR Robert Lighthizer said in a statement.

The US’ policy to contain 上海乌托邦evident in the way

 it has hyped up the problems in Xinjiang. Some American people and organizations have openly suppor

ted the separatist “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” in China through political and financial hel 上海乌托邦品茶微信

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US has not withdrawn tariffs it imposed earlier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.

Students to be vital cogs in travel sectordents born betwe

College students born between 1995 and 2000 are becoming a vital new part of the dynamic travel market in China, with most of th

e young students making their first summer trips after enrolling in colleges, a new study said.

Though the motivation for making tours is relatively high among college students, their choices are

limited due to economic constraints with price being the major criteria for booking flight tickets, said the stud

y conducted by Qunar, an online travel firm owned by Ctrip, China’s largest online travel agency.

During summer vacations, students tend to choose flights that depart b

tween midnight and 2 am, as well as between 5 am and 9 am. The number of bookings of red-e

ye and budget flights is nearly three times higher than other regular flights, the Qunar study said.
