US President Donald Trump, in the name of “national sec

urity”, signed an executive order on May 15 that led the US Department of Commerce to put Huawei and its affilia

tes on an Entity List, which would restrict the sale or transfer of US technologies to the company.

Craig Allen, president of the council, said many of its members are suppliers to Huaw

ei, and all of them have been impacted by the Department of Commerce’s move.

Founded in 1973, the council represents around 200 US companie

s doing business with China, including Apple and Microsoft. It also includes chipmakers Inte

l and Qualcomm, which have said they would stop offering supplies to Huawei until further notice.

The members will follow US law, but there is a cost associated with that, Allen told China Daily.

He said it does no one any favors to delink over poss

ssible national security concerns. Fair engagement across technologies is a better way to secure national security than delinking.

“The cost of decoupling will be very high for both economies,” he said. “Engage

ment in a fair competition with common rules is a far better outcome than decoupling.”

If there has to be some “decoupling” due to “valid national security conc

erns” in both countries, that should be kept to a minimum and not exaggerated, he said.

“Normal commerce is in the interest of both of our countries. And we should pursue it vigorously,” he added.

Allen also said members of the council are worried that they are now i

n a “very uncertain time” when the already tense situation could potentially deteriorate, as th

e world’s top two economies are embroiled in a protracted trade dispute with the Trum

new college graduates aged up to 24 years old increased by

ed by 8.4 percentage points, as the global financial crisis caused demands to fall drastically. It i

s possible that the Sino-US trade dispute could have a similar impact on the job market.

So the government should implement an expansionary macroeconomic policy to create a loose em

ployment environment and better implement social security measures to cope with frictional u

nemployment and the structural employment problem of college graduates.

To offset the possible negative impact of the Sino-US trade dispute on college graduates’ employment, the government sho

uld also expand post-graduate enrollment, increase internships for unemployed college graduates and imp

lement favorable policies to ease the enterprises’ financial burden so they can recruit more employees.

he May report summarized that China’s growth appear

ears to be stabilizing on the back of recently enhanced supportive measures.

The report expanded the number of countries it scrutinizes for curr

ency manipulation to 21 from 12. Countries with a current account surplus with the US e

quivalent to 2 percent of GDP were put on the watch list, compared with 3 percent of GDP before.

China didn’t meet the “currency manipulator” criteria listed by the US Treasury, but Washi

ngton will continue assessing the RMB’s performance given China’s large trade surplus with the US, the report said.

The US Treasury removed India from the watch list, while it added Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam.

“Chinese authorities have not used the exchange rate in prior easing

cycles to support growth, and they are unlikely to do so now, as this could pose macr

oeconomic stability risk,” said Andrew Fennell, lead sovereign analyst for China at Fitch Ratings.

The currency’s depreciation was purely caused by mark

et forces, and China has never taken any measures to deliberately devalue the currency to make its exports more at

tractive, said Guo, who is also head of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission.

According to Guo, the short-term fluctuation of the RMB exchan

ge rate was normal, and the depreciation will not last long given the stable economic growth base.

“Any speculative activities to short the RMB will suffer huge losses,” he warned.

The RMB’s daily trading reference, or the central parity for onshore trading, has been stabilized arou

nd 6.89 per dollar for eight days from May 20, and market watchers said market-oriented depreciation pressure was losing steam.

Yi Gang, the central bank governor, has said several times that the PBOC has ceased

direct intervention in foreign exchange markets, and the performance of RMB is address

Liu said that according to statistics, about 80 percent of Chinese employees were employed b

y private enterprises, and 80 percent of Chinese exports were done by private companies.

Asked how the US businesses operate in China with the risk of their intellectual property rights b

eing stolen, Liu said many American companies have been established in China and they’re very profitable.

“The great majority of them, I believe, plan to continue to invest i

n China and explore the Chinese market as well,” Liu said. “Now, US President Donald Tru

mp’s tariff makes it a little bit more difficult — makes the future a little bit uncertain.”

Liu said that there is consensus among Chinese people that no c

ountry or individual “can be stronger” and “develop itself” without intellectual prop

erty protection, and that isolated cases do not mean that America is stealing or Chinese people are stealing.

The two TV anchorwomen met “face to face” for the firs

t time after exchanging a flurry of Twitter messages over the past week, in which one challenged the other, and both agreed, to hav

e an “honest debate” and “meaningful discussion” on the trade issues that are perplexing their countries.

Liu joined Regan’s show at Fox’s studio in New York via satellite from CGTN’s studio in Beijing.

“I would stress that trade wars are never good. They’re not good for anyone,” Regan said

on the show. “So I want to believe, Xin, I want to believe that something can get done.”

Regan, who addressed Liu on a first-name basis, contrasted what she said on her show two weeks ago, when she said th

at US tariffs were a “necessary response” to China “stealing” billions worth of intellectual property a year.

Wu Hongwei, a researcher of China-Russia relation

s at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said bilateral cooperation plays a prominent role

in guaranteeing world peace and security at a time when the global situation is clouded by tensions and turmoil.

The two countries share the same position in promoting a more stable and multipolar world, Wu said, adding that they ha

ve sent such signals through supporting and coordinating with each other on international occasions.

China would rather rely on market-oriented forces to determine the renminbi’s value than defend its currency by di

pping into its $3 trillion foreign exchange reserves amid trade disagreements, analysts said.

The United States Treasury announced on Wednesday that it could not label Chin

a as a “currency manipulator” after Washington monitored the recent performance of the RMB.

Issoufou attended the Beijing Summit of the FOCAC in S

September. The two countries should continue to understand, trust an

d support each other on issues related to core interests and major concerns, Xi sa

id, adding that the two sides should share more experiences on governance and development. Xi called on the two nat

ions to enhance connections under the frameworks of the Belt and Road Initiative and FOCAC.

China will continue to support Niger to fight terrorism and safeguard regional peace and stabilit

y, Xi said. China would like to help Niger improve its people’s livelihood through such measures as m

edical assistance and via exchanges in areas including culture, youth, women and think tanks.

Mutual understanding between the people of both nations should also

be promoted, Xi said. He stressed that as long as all countries stick to the dev

elopment paths that suit their own national situations, make joint efforts to build the Belt and Road and remain dedi

cated to fulfilling the goal of building a community with a shared future for mankind, they will definitely achieve success.

The results of the elections for the European Parliame

nt are broadly in line with expectations. Although pro-European Union parties have won a majori

ty of the seats, the EP is more fragmented than before with traditional center-right and center-left par

ties losing seats to Liberals and Greens, and Euroskeptic parties increasing their vote share. This is likely to

make it more difficult for the EU to agree new trade deals and choose new leaders for EU institutions.

The heads of government of EU states met on Tuesday to discuss who will fill the top jobs.

The new EP and the EU leadership face a difficult international environment, especially on th

e trade front. The United States administration, already engaged in a tariff war with China, has its sights on the

EU as well, describing the bloc as “a foe”. The US has imposed 25 percent tariffs on European steel and aluminum an

d threatened to slap similar tariffs on European cars unless the EU opens up its agricultural market.
