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 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.

he much-anticipated debate between a Chinese anchorwoman and an A

merican counterpart on a prime-time TV show Wednesday night turned out to be more like

a Q&A session, with the host and her guest disputing everything from tariffs to China’s developing nation status.

But Trish Regan, host of Trish Regan Primetime on the Fox Business N

etwork, and Liu Xin, who anchors The Point on China Global Television Network, or CGT

N, seemed to agree that something must be done to break the impasse between China and the US, which are em

broiled in a protracted trade dispute with the Trump administration escalating tariffs and Beijing retaliating.

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

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

China you picked the wrong fight!” Regan tweeted on

On May 22, on her own program, The Point With Liu Xin, Liu a top anchor on the English-languag

e channel of CGTN, said the $600 billion figure is an estimate by a nonprofit organization that had not been verified.

Liu said it refers to the US’ possible IP loss to the world in a year, according to the organization’s report, China Daily reported.

She said Regan’s points were “all emotion” with “little substance”.

Regan responded on Twitter: “Hey #China State TV – let’s have an HONEST debate on #trade. You

accuse me of being ’emotional’ and not knowing my facts – wrong! You name the time and place, and I’ll be there!”

In accepting the challenge, Liu wrote on Twitter: “My name is not #China State TV. It’s LIU Xin and ple

ase, feel free to call me Xin. … But I don’t want to play any mud throwing game, if that’s what you prepare to do.”

The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

These parties tend to look at trade agreements purely from

m a nationalist point of view and if a trade agreement is seen as overall beneficial for their co

untry, they could support it. For instance, Italy voted in favor of the EU agreement with Japan but again

st the agreement with Canada. The content of the agreement is key. For instance, these parties do not like clauses tha

t curtail the powers of single EU member states, such as the establishment of new regulatory or arbitration bodies.

Another uncertainty is Brexit. Whether it will happen or not? And what might change under

a new British prime minister? The new Brexit Party under Nigel Farage was the clear leader in the EP

election in the United Kingdom, but the UK’s 73 EP members have to leave the EP as soon as Brexit takes place.
