The resumption of the China-Japan strategic dialogue is a key sign that Beijing an亚博极速下注会所

d Tokyo have pushed forward their bilateral relations on the right track and forged closer ties, said Lu Hao, a re

亚博极速下注会所品茶微信searcher at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Japanese Studies.

Official exchanges and communication mechanisms, including the strategic dialogue, were suspended after the two cou

ntries became mired in a dispute over China’s uninhabited Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea.亚博极速下注会所

Lu said the strategic dialogue mechanism plays a vital role for the two neighbors, especial

ly as they are both facing unprecedented conditions and a rapidly changing global environment.

亚博极速下注会所品茶微信”The dialogue not only focuses on improving bilateral ties but also touch

es on some of the important regional and international issues of common interest,” Lu

said, adding that boosting mutual understanding and cooperation between China

and Japan, the world’s second-and third-largest economies, helps promote regional stability and prosperity.亚博极速下注会所

On Friday, while meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, Le, the vice-minister, said China and Japan should k

eep up the positive momentum brought by the improved ties and enhance short-term goals while strengthening long-term ones.

Describing the meeting in Osaka between Xi and Abe as fruitful, Kono said Japan is expecting a state visit by Xi next spring and i亚博极速下注会所品茶微信

willing to work with China “in various fields and face global challenges shoulder to shoulder”.

Zhou Yongsheng, a professor and deputy director of the Ja

panese Studies Center at China Foreign Affairs University, said, “As Sino-J亚博极速下注会所

apanese relations have shown signs of warming in recent years, both

亚博极速下注会所品茶微信countries should cherish the momentum and build new relations featuring a shift from

competition to collaboration under the guidance of the strategic dialogue mechanism. Prom

oting Sino-Japanese ties will benefit the peace and prosperity of Asia and improve global governance.”

As for China, US seclu亚博极速下注会所ans scientific fields that r

亚博极速下注会所品茶微信Given the uncertainty of the situation, scientists and scholars around the world fear that the worl

“The current international systems were mostly put in place after World War II, but this world

亚博极速下注会所品茶微信order did not anticipate the astonishing rise of China,” he said. “As a result, some norms within the current glob

Already, opposition t亚博极速下注会所gton-triggered tra

?war is intensifying within the US. For example, the US Chamber of Commerce – one of the country’s most powerful bu

亚博极速下注会所siness lobbies – has called for the reversal of all tariffs imposed over the past two years.

The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment

. In recent years, rising Chinese production costs have driven many foreign enterp亚博极速下注会所女神会所

rises – and, increasingly, even Chinese enterprises – to relocate their operations to lower-cost countries such as

Vietnam and Thailand. The trade war is accelerating this process. According to the Vietnamese government, inward for

亚博极速下注会所eign direct investment increased by nearly 70 percent year-on-year in the first five months of 2019, the highest such i

ncrease since 2015. Meanwhile, the growth of US investment in China is slowing.亚博极速下注会所女神会所

Essential to improve investment environment

亚博极速下注会所The US administration wants American companies to leave China. It is u

p to China to persuade them to stay. That means improving the local investment envi

ronment, including responding to foreign companies’ justifiable complaints – say, by strengthening intellectual p亚博极速下注会所

roperty rights protection – and, more broadly, better adhering to World Trade Organization rules.

But the pressure on China does not end there. The US is also eager to exclude the count

亚博极速下注会所女神会所ry’s high-tech companies from global value chains. Trump recently announced that he would allow US co

mpanies to continue to sell to Chinese high-tech giant Huawei, after a months-long campaign against the company. But it r

emains highly unlikely that the US administration – which reversed a similarly aggressive policy toward sm

artphone company ZTE last year – will abandon its efforts to strangle China’s high-tech industries.亚博极速下注会所女神会所

China has three options. First, it could accede to US pressure to disengage from global value chains. Second, it could remain

committed to integration, hoping that, thanks to existing interconnections, sanctions on Chinese high-tech com亚博极速下注会所

panies will also hurt their US counterparts (such as Qualcomm) enough for the US administration to back d

亚博极速下注会所女神会所own. The third option is to focus on supporting domestic high-tech companies’ effo

rts to strengthen their own positions within global value chains and develop contingency plans.

Analysts attending the symposium said more efforts ar

China, the world’s largest producer of rare earths, currently produces around 80 percent of the world’s supply of the metals.

The NDRC said in late May that China is willing to continue supplying rare

earth metals to global markets, but is opposed to those who use products made with Chi

nese rare earths to “suppress and dampen China’s development”.The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party

of China in October 2017 advocated that China would be developed into a modern socialist country that is prosp
