Washington blasted fo亚搏官网419osing an unworkable

China won’t give in to extreme pressure by the United States on tariffs and will firml

y defend its core interests, as it has sufficient countermeasures available, experts said.亚搏官网419品茶微信

The reaction came after the Ministry of Commerce expressed strong opposition on Saturday

亚搏官网419to a new threat of additional tariffs by the US on about $550 billion worth of Chinese imports. The ministry urge

d Washington to reverse course immediately or be prepared to “bear all the consequences”.

The fresh retaliatory threat by the US violates the consensus reached between the count亚搏官网419品茶微信

ries’ top leaders and severely undermines the multilateral trading system and normal international trade o

rder, the ministry said, adding that Washington will eat the bitter fruit of its own actions.

亚搏官网419Gu Xueming, head of the ministry’s Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, said none of the ex

treme pressure tactics and intimidation by the US will work with China, which will unswervingly protect itself.

In the future, the country’s countermeasures will be more rational, firmer and more powerful, Gu said at a seminar in Beijing on Sunday.亚搏官网419品茶微信

Noting that cooperation is the only correct choice, Gu said he hoped the US will see the situation clearly, give up its illu

sions and resolve its differences with China under the principle of mu亚搏官网419

tual benefit and respect. Any agreement must be acceptable to both sides, Gu said.

Bai Ming, a senior researcher at the acad

亚搏官网419emy, said China has sufficient tools in its toolbox to use to counter the US adm

inistration’s unilateral tariff actions. The “quality” of the tools matters most, he said.

On Friday, the US administration said it will hike duties on $250 billion worth of Chinese亚搏官网419

goods from the current 25 percent to 30 percent beginning on Oct 1, and the re

maining imports of $300 billion from the previously planned 10 percent to 15 percent on Sept 1.

The move followed Beijing’s plan on Thursday to raise亚搏官网419品茶微信

tariffs on $75 billion worth of US goods in a response to the US side’s planned levies on a

n additional $300 billion worth of Chinese imports, announced earlier this month.

y-stricken people house-by-house and village-by-village in impoverished areas.亚搏官网419

Saying people’s livelihoods must be ensured and improved, Xi added that the issues t

hat matter to people, such as education, medical services and transportation, should be addressed.

The president called on local governments to advance supply-side structural reforms, accelerate the upgr亚搏官网419品茶微信

ote clean governance, improve work efficiency and resolutely overcome bureaucracy and formalism.

On Wednesday morning, Xi visited the Huanghuatan community in Gulang county, home to亚搏官网419

people relocated from environmentally vulnerable and impoverished areas. There he visited Li Yin

gchuan’s new home, with a clean yard and well-equipped kitchen and bathroom facilities.亚搏官网419品茶微信

President’s Thought on Diplomacy has opened new vistas, achieved fresh progress

亚搏官网419品茶微信Editor’s note:?Xi Jinping Thought on Diplomacy is the fundamental guideline for China’s diplomati

When Brenda Kazule returned to Zambia after completing her master’s degree at the Institute of South-South Cooperation and

亚搏官网419品茶微信Development at Peking University in June last year, she had a thick book in her unwieldy luggage.

Kazule, a traditional-affairs officer from Muchinga province, said the book —?Xi Jinping: The Governance of China?— is import

ant to her because it gave her insights about China’s development as well as the governing of the world’s most popu亚搏官网419

lous country by the Communist Party of China, and she wanted to share it with her colleagues.

Since Xi Jinping was elected as general secretary of the CPC Central Committee in November 2012 and p亚搏官网419品茶微信

resident of China in March 2013, the country’s diplomacy has opened new prospects and achieved new progress.

亚搏官网419The book is a collection of several dozen speeches and essays by Xi on a variety of topics. It interprets the concepts and prin

ciples of the top CPC leadership’s governance and also helps foreign people better understand China’s development

path, its domestic and foreign policies and responses to international concerns about the country.亚搏官网419品茶微信

Kazule said what impressed her most about the book was the cou

ntry’s targeted poverty-reduction policy and Xi’s vision on building a community with a shared fut亚搏官网419

ure for mankind.f poverty alleviation efforts aim to solve a problem in China, the vision of building a community with a sh

The new policy announcement pointed out three scenarios of property

transfers, including parents granting housing ownership to their children, and discount cou

Six other taxation items which have been levied in the past have been left out. Stock inves

Zhang said that the announcement reassures the revised individual taxation law w

cessary inconsistencies between current and previous tax policies and making tax more practical and effective.

The 14 new rooms, spanning over 1,100 square meters, wi

host 105 works by Venice and Florence artists, including Titian and Tintoretto. The pieces were st

ored in the museum’s warehouses, and about a third had not been exhibited to the public for several years.

“All these great masters are back on view here in the Uffizi in new spaciou

s halls where we can have many visitors to admire them,” says Uffizi’s director, Eike Schmidt.

“It is as if a second, new museum had opened inside the gallery,” he adds.

Titian’s Venus of Urbino hangs in a room with two other paintings and is

among the most celebrated canvas on display in the new section of the Florence art gallery.

their growth and his hope for them to carry on endeavors to realize the nation’s dreams.

International Children’s Day falls on June 1 every year.

In May 2013, while inspecting a school devastated by an earthquake in Sichuan province, Xi told

students to turn their trauma into a source of strength, urging them to be strong, brave and united.
