China will issue more measures to further implement the country’s innov

ation-driven development strategy and incentivize business startups and innovation nationwide, the State

上海会所品茶微信Council’s executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang decided on Wednesday.

Global retail giant Walmart Inc is planning to further increase its investment in th

e Chinese market after opening a mega perishable products distribution center in South China’s Guangdong province in March.上海会所品茶微信

The US-based multinational said on Monday it would spend around 8 billion yuan

上海会所($1.16 billion) over the next 10 years to build or upgrade over 10 distribution centers to boost online

and offline businesses to meet Chinese customers’ demand for fresh goods and convenient services.

The investment plan came a day after China released a revised list of industries for foreig上海会所品茶微信

n investment, which includes logistics of ordinary goods, cold chain logistics for fresh agricultural goods and special medicines.

Walmart is looking for sustainable and quality growth in the Chinese market and the revised

上海会所品茶微信foreign investment list further supports its investment plan for upgrading local logistics

supply chains, said Ryan McDaniel, senior vice-president of supply chain with Walmart China.

Along with the catalog, two shortened negative lists were also rolled out.上海会所

The two lists, one for pilot free trade zones and one for the rest of the country, contain fe

wer access-limiting measures. Pilot FTZs now have 37 items that are restricted for foreign inv上海会所品茶微信

estors, down from 45, while non-FTZ areas are required to implement 40 items instea

d of 48.The negative lists outline sectors that are restricted to foreign investment.

Already, opposition t上海会所gton-triggered tra

 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.

I must stress that Taiwan is an inseparable part of Chin

na, and the one-China principle is the foundation of China-US relations and an international consensus,” Shao said.

“The US side has conducted a series of negative rhetoric and actions regarding the Taiwan questi

on, violated the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiques,” he said.

“This has undermined China’s sovereignty and security, sent a seriously wrong message to

Taiwan secessionists, and disrupted regional peace and stability,” Shao said, adding that China must, and will be, reunified.

“If anyone tries to separate Taiwan from the mainlan

d, the Chinese military will adamantly protect its territorial integrity at all costs,” he said.

As for the South China Sea, Shanahan accused China of undermini

The world’s second-largest economy maintained its fore

eign exchange reserves at $3.095 trillion at the end of April. The reserve amount was stable, altho

ugh it slightly retreated from $3.098 trillion at the end of March, according to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.

Li Yang, director of the National Institution for Finance and Development of the Chinese Academy

of Social Sciences, said that China is unlikely to sacrifice foreign exchange reserves to de

fend its currency, even if depreciation pressure rises amid any escalation in trade tension.

In May, the offshore RMB exchange rate against the US dollar dropped more than 3 percen

t under market pressure as global investors worried about the escalation of trade friction.

Guo Shuqing, Party secretary of the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, said on Monday that higher US tariffs on Chin

a’s imports triggered financial market volatility, and this also affected the offshore RMB.
