The tariffs imposed on Chinese goods by the US so far hav

ave had a negative impact on the Chinese economy, but it has shown resilience in coping with the shocks, and the repercussions have not been as severe as pred

icted. In January, for instance, Chinese exports rose 9.1 percent from a year earlier, compared with a 3.5 percent declin

e in December, according to customs data released on Thursday. And although its export growth to the US continued t

relations with a deal that is in line with the interests of both countries. If that has been the shared und

erstanding during this week’s talks, and it is carried forward in the negotiations in Wa

shington next week, hopefully the two sides will be able to narrow the differences between them sufficiently so that the t

o drop, no doubt due to the raised tariffs on Chinese goods, China’s shipments to other major

markets, such as the European Union, Japan and Southeast Asia, all rose strongly.

Meanwhile, leyishengpxcn/ions otherwise, the US economy has not rem

ained unscathed, as shown by the need to offer emergency assistance to its farmers and t

he voices of complaint from US companies urging the administration to change tack.

Cooperation based on fully respecting mutual interests is the best way for t

he two countries to renew their trade and economicwo leaders can pencil in a date f

or a meeting at which they can shake hands on a deal that sets the right course for future relations.

Between each April and October, villagers from Dingri Cou

unty usually set up black tents at the foot of Mount Qomolangma, providing tourists accomodation as a means of earning money.

Though ordinary visitors can’t go beyond the monastery, it won’t affect them from appreciating the mountain.

“The new tent camp for ordinary tourists can still allow them to clearly see the 8,800-meter-plus mountain,” Kelsang said.

Travelers who have a climbing permit can go to the base camp at an altitude of 5,200 meters. Kelsan

g said the mountaineering activities have been approved by the regional forestry department.

Decades after the epic climb to the world’s peak, Tibetans at the f

oot of Mount Qomolangma have conquered poverty by receiving professional and am

ateur mountaineers and tourists, who have also posed an environmental challenge to the mountain.

To conserve the environment surrounding Mount Qomolangma, China c

arried out three major clean-ups at an altitude of 5,200 meters and above last spr

ing, collecting more than eight tonnes of household waste, human feces and mountaineering trash.

Comments Off on Which is why US President Donald Trump’s latest remarks

Which is why US President Donald Trump’s latest remarks

that the negotiations have been progressing “very well” and he might reportedly even let the March 1 deadline “slide for a little while” — have been taken as portents that progress is being made and a positive result may well be on the way.

Especially as White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has raised the possibility of Trump meeting with Pres

ident Xi Jinping at the US president’s personal retreat at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, sometime in March — The White Ho

use has previously said the two leaders would have to meet to strike the final bargain.

The market never lies, as the saying goes. Let’s hope that’s true, because the stock market has already

cast a vote of confidence in China and the US being able to reach a deal. The bench mark S

hanghai Composite Index has rebounded more than 10 percent, and the Dow Jones industrial average, more than 15

percent, from their lows in December when Sino-US trade tensions were running high.

It is apt that melting snow symbolizes a new beginning, as positive progress in the talks would m

ean a convergence of expectations for bilateral relations and help ensure the Sino-US relationship has a s

olid foundation of mutual trust and good momentum for positive interaction at the start of its fifth decade.

Comments Off on Festival brings to fore importance of demographic data

Festival brings to fore importance of demographic data

Spring Festival, celebrating the start of the Chinese Lun

ar New Year, is unique beyond being the most important festival in the world’s most populous country.

Not only is it the longest holiday that most workers in China are entitled to, it also pr

oduces the largest annual human population movement in the world, th

anks to the age-old tradition of family reunions that are at the center of the occasion.

This year, the Year of the Pig, which is strongly believed to be associated with good fortune, has seen hundreds of millions

of workers based in cities and big towns returning to their smaller towns and villages of origin to reunite a

nd feast with their families-including their parents, and, for many, also their spouses and children. The official fo

recast is that this year, nearly 3 billion trips will be generated during the 40-day travel rush from Jan 21 to March 1.

While it might not be so obvious, this huge social phenomenon both shapes and is shaped by the sheer size and dis

tribution of China’s population linked to births, deaths and migration, and the way these three sets of vital events interact.

The post by the Sina Weibo blogger claimed that one of Zha

i’s papers published in an academic journal, was uploaded to CNKI and the similarity score for the 2,783-word article was 40.4 percent.

Another post by the same blogger claimed that Zhai’s doctoral graduation dissertation

could not be found in the CNKI database, while all the graduation dissertations written by his classmates could be found there.

The posts stirred a heated debate among netizens, with many saying academic misconduct

was unfair to students who had worked hard to obtain a degree. They have called for strict rules to curb such behavior.

“For someone with a PhD, how could he not know what the CNKI is? And how could he have never used it for referencing academic works?” one netizen wrote.

“I was only joking when I said that I did not know what CNKI was,” Zhai wrote in response

to the post. “Will anyone believe me if I said that I do not know one plus one equals two?”

Zhai’s studio said on Friday that he obtained a PhD from the Beijing Film Academ

y in June, and all his academic papers and his dissertation were written by him under the guidance of supervisors.

He has met all graduation requirements from the academy and is willing to be held responsible for any academic misconduct, the studio said.

Peking University declined to comment when contacted by China Daily on Monday.

Comments Off on South Korea began paying for the U.S. military deplo

South Korea began paying for the U.S. military deplo

the early 1990s, after rebuilding its economy from the devastation of the 1950-1953 Korean War.

About 20 anti-U.S. activists rallied near the Foreign Ministry building in Seoul on Su

nday, chanting slogans like “No more money for U.S. troops.” No violence was reported.

“The United States government realizes that Korea does a lot for our alliance and peace an

d stability in the region,” chief U.S. negotiator Timothy Betts said Sunday in Seoul. “We are very pleased ou

r consultations resulted in agreement that will strengthen transparency and deepen our cooperation and the alliance.”

The deal, which involves the spending of South Korean taxpayer money, requires parliam

entary approval in South Korea, but not in the United States, according to Seoul’s Foreign Ministry.

The allies had failed to reach a new cost-sharing plan during some 10 rounds of tal

ks. A five-year 2014 deal that covered South Korea’s payment last year expired at the end of 2018.

  HONGQING — Authorities in the southwestern municipality of Chongqing plan to

transform rural houses and toilets to boost development in the countryside.

  A total of 30,000 dangerous houses will be renovated in 2019, in addition to 375,000 toilets. Authorities also plan to build 24,000 km of new roads.

  According to the local government, polluted water in the countryside will be p

roperly treated, and agricultural waste will be utilized effectively. The aut

horities will also strengthen protection for rural culture and traditions.

  A series of projects will be implemented to help with the supply-side reform in Chongqing.

Philip drove Barack Obama and his wife Michelle to lunch at Windsor Castle during their st

ate visit to Britain in 2016, prompting the former US president to remark: “I have to say I have never been dr

iven by a Duke of Edinburgh before, but I can report it was very smooth riding.”

The queen, a trained military driver during World War II, is said to have sh

ocked Saudi Arabia’s late King Abdullah, then crown prince, by climbing in

to the driver’s seat and taking him for a ride around her estate during a visit to Britain in 1998.

At the time, women were banned from driving in Saudi Arabia.
