urged to avoid more damage to China tiesonly

Beijing urged Washington on Saturday “not to go too far” in harming China’s interest

s, and called for it to change course to avoid further damaging bilateral ties.

China firmly opposes the United States’ recent remarks and actions that harmed China’s interests, in

cluding its resorting to political means to suppress normal operations of Chinese companies, State Coun

cilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a phone call with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

History and reality show that China and the US both benefit f

rom cooperating with each other, while both suffer from bilate

ral conflicts, and cooperation is the only proper choice for the two major countries, Wang said.

The keynote speech delivered by President Xi Jinping is ver

Diversified, harmonious and inclusive civilizations should be highlighted and they are good for sustainable development.

The conference offers an open platform for us to understand each other, and dialogues will help reduce many misunderstandings.

Asian countries need to reach a consensus by exchanging and mutual learning during this conference, and ba

sed on their histories and philosophies, they can have their own ways, or Asian styles, to solve problems.

I was born in a lucky generation, not in times of conflict or in times of war. Sometimes m

y generation may take peace for granted. But if we see the history, we cannot take anything for granted.

So how do we continue the age of peace? We might not be talking about

war. We might be talking about environmental challenges or terrorism.

This is not an issue that one country faces. We have to sit together, put these issues on the table and hopefully come to a consensus.

More than 700 scientists from around 40 countries, regio

ns and international organizations supported the declaration. It recommended a

ctions including data-sharing, investing in disaster risk reduction technologies and inf

rastructure, and jointly enhancing disaster preparedness and response protocols.

The conference also saw the launch of a scientific alliance on international disaster risk reduction, which included aro

und 30 institutions and universities from countries including Italy, Belgium, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The alliance will serve as a new platform for international coordinati

on and provide scientific support for disaster relief and sustainable development.

The conference was co-hosted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Chi

na Association for Science and Technology, the United Nations Environment Progra

China has also recently announced a strengthened reg

gime of intellectual property rights protection. Again, this is what foreign negotiat

ors are seeking, but also is important for China’s own economy as it transitions to being a technology leader.

Trade agreements can affect the types of goods being traded and they can redirect trade toward one c

ountry, away from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account bal

ance. A country that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gov

ernment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.

US soy farmers call for cool-down of trade tensions

US soy farmers have urged Washington to work for a positive solution to the current tarif

f dispute with the world’s top oilseed buyer China, and avoid further escalation of trade tensions.

In a statement released late Tuesday, the American Soybean Association (ASA) described the t

hreat by US President Donald Trump’s administration to increase the tariff rate from 10 percent to 25 p

ercent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods as the “worst case” for US soybean growers.

“This is a predicament for soy growers,” said Davie Stephens, ASA president and a soybean farmer from Kentucky.

“With depressed (soybean) prices and unsold stocks fo

recast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, we nee

d the China market reopened to US soybean exports within weeks, not months or longer,” he added.

Rich Chinese parents also caught up in college admissions scandal

Paying millions of dollars to secure their children a spot at an elite college may

sound absurd to many parents, but some are willing to do this.

Nicole Shen, the Chinese mother of a high school student in Palo Alto, California, said she would be wi

lling to pay a pretty penny upfront to get her daughter admitted to a top-tier university if she could afford it. “As long as eve

rything is legal,” she added.Zhao, 52, was introduced to William “Rick” Singer, a college consultant in California and the mast

ermind behind the scandal, by Michael Wu, who worked as an adviser at the Los Angeles area branch of in

vestment bank Morgan Stanley, according to the Los Angeles Times. Wu has since been fired.

Two wealthy Chinese families have recently been in the spotlight and t

he subject of widespread discussion after media reports showed they paid huge am

ounts in a high-profile college admissions scandal. The sums they paid dwarfed the typical amount footed by US parents.

The highest-known payoff to date is the $6.5 million by billionaire Zhao Tao, president and co-founder of Shandong Buchang Pharmaceuticals Co.

Lan Fei, marketing center director for Guangzhou Wei

meizi Industrial Co in Guangdong province, said people in lower-tier cities have huge consumption power.

In 2016, the company’s oral care brand Saky reached customers in lower-tier cities for the first time. Mor

eover, the quality of oral care products in this market varies, so there is huge potential.

In addition to traditional sales channels such as supermarkets and stores, Saky was introduced to co

nsumers in lower-tier cities by livestreaming hosts on social media platforms. The hosts used en

tertaining methods to introduce oral care products and educate consumers about the correct way to use them.

“On Kuaishou, the host placed some sesame powder on a piece of c

orn, showing that Saky’s electric toothbrush could easily wash it away,” he said. “The host

also held a Saky electric toothbrush against a balloon (which did not burst) to demonstrate that its power could not damage teeth.”

The regulation also called for stricter implementation

 of programs and compliance oversight to ensure that the required funds of investment programs are in place on time.

The approval mechanism for government-invested pro

grams will be further standardized, and major programs must go through procedures suc

h as evaluations by intermediary service institutions, the public and experts, as well as risk assessment.

Government investment funds must prioritize investments into areas where the market cannot effectively allocate res

ources, such social services, public infrastructure and environment protection, the regulation said.

It also calls for equal treatment of various

types of investment entities, adding that authorities should not set up biased conditions.

The premier said in his Government Work Report this year that Chi

na will pursue a proactive fiscal policy with greater intensity and enhance its performance.

As the state was looking for innovative ways to tackle

 the Asian carp problem, Kentucky awarded Yu its first-ever fish house contract in fall last year. Under the deal, Yu’s Kentucky Fish

Center will buy Asian carp at a guaranteed price, with part of this coming from a government subsidy.

All fish at the center will be sold by auction to buyers in the US or overseas. S

ales will be overseen by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Kentucky provided a secured $734,000 fixed-assets loan to help the center begin oper

ating. Additional incentives will be awarded every year based on performance.

The center needs to reach certain goals: to remove 2.26 million kg of Asian

carp from Kentucky waters this year and increase that amount gradually to just ov

er 9 million kg annually by 2024. If those goals are met, the loan will be waived.

The entire program will cost Kentucky about $4 million.
