A great debate set over tariffs, technologyhorwom

Two television anchorwomen — one from China and one from the US — will debate two sides of the long-running trade dispute between the two countries.

Liu Xin, a mainstay of the China Global Television Network, and Trish Regan, a former CNBC busi

ness correspondent who now hosts her own show on the Fox Business Network, will have at it over i

ssues such as tariffs and technology Wednesday at 8 pm EDT in the US and simultaneously at 8 am Thursday in China.

The discourse will take place via satellite, as Liu will be in CGTN’s studio in Beijing, while Regan will be at Fox’s studio in New York.

The debate idea came about after the two newswomen clashed earlier this month after Regan said Beijing stole “$600 bill

on worth of intellectual property a year”, leading to the Trump administration tariffs.

China is the world’s largest producer of rare earths, acco

counting for about 80 percent of global supply. However, the country’s rare-earth industry is faced with such pro

blems as rapidly decreasing inventory, inefficient production and environmental pollution.

Analysts also said that the low prices of China’s exports have failed to reflect the real value of the precious resource.

The division of labor of the global rare-earth industry should be coo

rdinated in accordance with the principle of opening-up and sharing, the NDRC said.

While the country prioritizes the domestic use of rare-earth meta

ls, it is willing to see its exports help drive the development of global industries, it said.

About 8.34 million new college graduates and 2 million migrant workers are expected to enter the job market this year. Added to the list of job seekers woul

kers such as veterans. This means at least 12 million urban jobs have to be created this year.

Still, the employment pressure this year is not overbearing for two re

asons. First, the number of job seekers has not increased considerably from last year.

In fact, the number and ratio of China’s working-age people have both d

So far EU ministers have only agreed a modest mandat

The most prominent supporter of free trade is the center-right European People’s Party which lost sea

Still, the victory of the Brexit Party could prompt the Cons

servatives to choose a new leader to campaign on a “no-deal” Brexit. But

this has little or no chance of being accepted by the British parliament, which means the B

rexit stalemate will continue until there is a general election or a second referendum. In any case, the normally pr

ofree trade voice of the UK will be reduced in the new European Parliament.

During the team’s 40-day intensive training in Nepal, the

heir Sherpa guides had taught them how to maintain healthy blood circulation and remain safe in crowded conditions, she said.

This spring, 144 foreign and 12 Chinese climbers have also attempted to con

quer Qomolangma from Tibet, according to the Tibet Mountaineering Association. “D

espite having a smaller number of climbers, traffic jams also happened on the Tibetan side,” Ma said.

“Crowds are usual on some mountains. It’s not a new phenomenon. Climbers often lose their live

s when they don’t follow the instructions of Sherpa guides and make decisions on their own,” Kami Ri

ta, an experienced Sherpa who has reached Qomolangma’s summit 24 times, told Xinhua News Agency.

Sherpas are aware of every twist and turn and which paths to follow up mountains, so he urged the Nepali government to dis

courage mountaineers from climbing mountains without guides in order to prevent casualties.

The huge domestic consumer market in China will dige

est most of the unsalable exports, and many of China’s exports will also shift to other foreign markets. The US will continu

e to purchase China-made goods if there are no substitutes, but US consumers will need to pay more, Guo said.

Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs have

been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.

US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, and

rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the Chin

ese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.
