Washington’s countervailing measures on Chinese imports violate body’s laws
The United States has challenged the authority of the World Trade Organization by ignoring a上海419
WTO ruling, and such a move may escalate trade tension with China, experts said on Wednesday.
上海419品茶微信The WTO announced on Tuesday that the revised countervailing measures imposed by t
he US on imports of certain products from China were inconsistent with WTO laws.
However, the US failed to comply with the WTO ruling and上海419
accused China of “using State-owned enterprises to subsidize its economy”.
上海419The WTO mechanism is what members use to settle trade disputes, and countries in most cases abide by the rulings made by th
e organization, said Xue Rongjiu, deputy director of the China Society for WTO Studies.上海419品茶微信
“If member economies don’t follow this procedure, the rule-based global multilateral system
will be damaged and threatened by protectionism,” Xue said, adding that under such circumstances, some
上海419members may be forced to also use trade as a geopolitical weapon to ensure their interests.
Upholding the findings of a WTO dispute panel made public in March 2018, a WTO appellate body ruled that the US acted inc
onsistently with its provisions of subsidies and countervailing measures agreement.上海419品茶微信
The Ministry of Commerce urged the US to take immediate and concrete
action to “correct the wrong practices” in the anti-subsidy investigation against China and to c
上海419reate a fair and stable international trading environment for companies from both countries.
“Although both the panel of experts and the appellate body in this case
have ruled that the US countervailing measures violate WTO rules and asked the US to c上海419品茶微信
orrect its action, the US didn’t comply with the WTO ruling and continued to adopt tra上海419
de remedy measures against Chinese products in recent years,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
Domestic celebrities can enhance the viewing experience when they make ch
aracters in overseas animations sound local, but things can sometimes go wrong.上海419
At a giant venue at Beijing’s 751 Park, a stage was decorated like a replica of an apartment building in New York.
Then, a few minutes after the event host appeared from the door, three windows opened, with
上海419品茶微信comedian Chen Peisi, actor Feng Shaofeng and Taiwan singer-actress Amber Kuo appearing from them.
Each of the guests then hugged a furry creature resembling the an
imal characters they perform in the voice-overs for the upcoming Hollywood an上海419
imation sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, which will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday.
上海419品茶微信In the film, Chen is the voice of the conceited rabbit Snowball, while Feng dubs t
he canine protagonist Max, and Kuo lends her voice to Gidget, a white Pomeranian.
As well as the three celebrities, the film also features renowned director Feng Xiaogan上海419
g and actress Ma Li, who lend their voices to two of the major animal characters in the Mandarin version.
At a news conference held in the Chinese capital on June 25, the stars tried to strike
上海419a chord with local audiences through sharing personal stories about raising pets.
Meanwhile, latest data from the box-office tracker Maoyan showed that the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entert上海419品茶微信
ainment production has topped the presale box-office charts for animation features as of Friday.
Comments on review aggregator Douban, an important reference point for fans to select their weekend viewing, also suggest上海419
ed that the film had drawn the highest number of potential theatergoers for its opening day.
For most industry observers, the film typifies the latest efforts by foreign animati上海419品茶微信
on productions to grab attention in China, the world’s second-largest movie market.
上海419Jiang Yong, a Beijing-based analyst, says that using Chinese celebrities for the Mand
arin voice-overs is a pivotal part of the local marketing strategy for imported animation films.
“And, despite the fact that most adult viewers, especially those in their 20s or 30s, are used to watching native language orig上海419品茶微信
inals with subtitles, the Mandarin version is the top option for families with young children,” adds Jiang.
But while stars can boost ticket sales, some of them have also sparked contro
versy, mostly due to skepticism surrounding their inadequate voice-over techniques.
Mutual support, pragmatic cooperation, China-EU ties high on bilateral agenda
上海419品茶微信China and Bulgaria should make joint efforts to maintain the international system base
上海419d on multilateralism and international law, President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday.
Xi made the remarks while meeting with Bulgarian President Rumen Radev at the Great Hall
of the People in Beijing. Radev is paying a state visit to China from Monday to Friday. 上海419
上海419品茶微信The two presidents agreed to promote their countries’ relationship to a strategic partnership. Before their talks, Xi hosted a ceremony to welcome Radev.
The two countries should take the opportunity of upgrading their bilateral relations, join h
ands to deal with changes of international relations and inject new impetus into China-Bulgaria cooperation, Xi said. 上海419
Noting that Bulgaria was one of the first countries to establish diplomatic relations with Chi
na, Xi said that the traditional friendship between the two countries has developed over the past 70 years. 上海419品茶微信
Xi called on the two countries to enhance mutual respect and trust, and strengthen commu
nication in such areas as government, legislative authorities and political parties. 上海419
The two countries should continue to firmly support each other on issues related to their core interests and major concerns, Xi said.
Bulgaria is among the Central and East European countries that from a very early period hav
e signed intergovernmental cooperation documents with China on jointly building the Belt and Road, Xi said. 上海419品茶微信
China would like to enhance connection of development strategies with Bulgaria, promote infrast
ructure interconnectivity, increase trade and investment and strengthen people-to-people exchanges, Xi added.
He said that China attaches great imp
ortance to relations with Europe and firmly supports the integration process of Europe.
China hopes the new European Union authorities maintain stable and susta
inable policies toward China, Xi said, adding that Bulgaria is a good friend and partner of China in the EU.
University, said, “Although the DMZ meeting has created significant momentum that will help restart a change on the Korean Peninsula, as sanctions will remain in place, chances are
上海419品茶微信not high that the meeting will lead to a major change in the short-term trajectory of denuclearizing the peninsula.”
One of the most encouraging signs that emerged from the meeting between President Xi Jinpi
ng and US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka on Saturday was the s 上海419
oftening of Trump’s stance on the sanctions the US administration had imposed on Chinese telecommunications equi
pment provider Huawei. Trump said US companies can continue selling telecom components to Huawei. 上海419
If US companies indeed continue selling telecom components to Huawei, it will come as a big relief to the world at a time when th
e international community fears the “technology decoupling” of world’s largest and second-largest economies could u 上海419品茶微信
ndermine global technological development, especially the commercialization of 5G technology, in which Huawei is a leading global player.
Previously the US administration was reportedly mulling banning 5G telecom equipment designed and manufactured in China, includin 上海419
g those made by multinational companies such as Ericsson and Nokia, from the US market.
The fact is, as a global leader in 5G, Hu
上海419品茶微信awei is too big to fail. After the US administration banned American companies from selling chips to Huawei an
d other Chinese companies, Silicon Valley has suffered as much, if not more than, Huawei. Besides, some companies co
ntinued to supply chips to Huawei via their overseas branches in order to avoid violating the US ban. 上海419品茶微信
Hopefully, the Xi-Trump meeting and the likely resumption of trade talks between China and the U
S will prompt Washington to adopt a consistent and the right approach toward Chinese high-tech co
mpanies, not least because China tends to treat all companies, domestic as well as foreign, equally. 上海419品茶微信
For example, with research and development centers and manufacturing bases in China, Er
icsson and Nokia have won big contracts in the just launched bid for 5G network devices. These companies hav
e been supplying to markets and serving telecom operators and enterprises across the globe, by capi
talizing on China’s skilled workforce, world-class infrastructure and complete industrial chain.
Yet, if the US does not lift the ban, such companies would have to endure higher production co
sts. They could even be forced to transfer their businesses out of China, although both Ericsson and Nokia cl
aim they can operate production bases in other countries despite the higher costs, due to the flexible supply chain.

my suffering is unbearable,” Pothoven wrote in a post, which has since been removed.
