Some of the “smart” lampposts on Sheung Yuet Road vandalized on Saturday were now protected by traffic cones.

亚博极速下注千花坊Black-clad, masked protesters had sawed off the new lampposts on Satur

day. City officials said each “smart” lamppost cost about HK$140,000($17,850).

Residents were enraged. A security guard at a building on Tai Yip Street-the亚博极速下注千花坊品茶微信

scene of violent rioting on Saturday-said the building and some nearby shops and

garages were closed on Saturday, and some remained closed on Sunday.亚博极速下注千花坊

“Some protesters put up roadblocks with metal barricades and bamboo

poles on the streets, and we had to pull down the shutters for safety,” the guard said.

亚博极速下注千花坊品茶微信In Kowloon Bay, Tso Tat-ming, a 60-year-old taxi driver, denounced radical prote

He lamented that not only his business had suffered but also retail and tourism industries w亚博极速下注千花坊

“Some residents are scared seeing the protesters blocking main roads and tunnels with their guerilla-style tactics,” he s

亚博极速下注千花坊品茶微信aid, adding that some residents who had tried to reason with the protesters had been attacked.

“Hong Kong is my home. I hope you (radical protesters) don’t put the city in jeopardy,” Tso said.

“By labeling China a currency manipulator, the US is in fact continuing its maximum-

pressure approach in trade talks,” said Liao Qun, chief economist of the China CITIC Bank International.亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所

China and the US have been locked up in drawn-out trade disputes since last year.

On Monday, Chinese companies have halted purchases of US farm prod

Chinese imports, as the US move seriously violated the consensus reached by the two heads of state in Osaka.

NO INTENTION TO DEVALUATE CURRENCY

亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所China has long been committed to keeping the yuan’s exchang

e rate basically stable at a reasonable and balanced level, the central bank said.

The Chinese currency is the strongest among the G20 and is one of the currencies that has seen substantial appreciation.

From the beginning of 2005 to June this year, the currency’s nominal e亚博极速下注千花坊

xchange rate appreciated 38 percent and real exchange rate strengthened 47 percent.

Last month, the IMF found in its latest annual assessment that the renminbi exchange rate was broadly in line with fundamentals.亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所

From the macro perspective, the yuan’s exchange rate is buoyed by the coun

try’s sound fundamentals, strong economic resilience, stable fiscal position, c亚博极速下注千花坊

ontrollable financial risks, balanced cross-border capital movement and sufficient foreign exchange reserves.

China has no intention to gain trade advantages by devaluing its currency, as the yuan’

亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所s depreciation cannot necessarily lift exports, said Song Xiangyan, an analyst with the PBOC.

A large devaluation probably leads to panic capital outflows and competitive currency devaluation of China’s trading par

tners, which will undermine the country’s financial stability and hurt imports, Song added.

China will be committed to the promises on exchange rates made at all G20 summit亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所

s and abide by a market-determined exchange rate system, the PBOC governor Yi Gang said Monday.

Refusing competitive devaluation, the country will not resort to exchange r

ates in handling external uncertainties such as trade disputes, Yi said.

Hua Changchun, an analyst with Guotai Junan Securities, said the biggest impact of the US planned ne亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所

The tariff plan’s biggest influence on China is that the country’s participation in th

The ulterior motive is to throw Hong Kong into major turmoil, the former pr

esident of the Legislative Council told China Daily in an exclusive interview on Thursday.

亚博极速下注千花坊”When Hong Kong is in a chaotic state, the US can unsettle China, while people from Taiwan in favor of independence

will say ‘one country, two systems’ is not applicable to Taiwan because it is a failure in Hong Kong,” Fan said.

“Due to the rapid rise of China, the US always sees China as a big threat.亚博极速下注千花坊

If Hong Kong is unsettled, the city will lose its functions of contributing to the nation’s

development, with the trade dispute being one of the US tactics to unsettle China.

亚博极速下注千花坊女神会所”In addition, the US and other Western powers can criticize China for not doing well e

nough to maintain implementation of ‘one country, two systems’ unchanged for 50 years,” she said.

Boeing may reimburse airlines for 737 MAX grounding

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

亚博极速下注千花坊is having “ongoing conversations” with airlines about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets.

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb亚博极速下注千花坊

urg didn’t say how Boeing would compensate airlines, but it could be cash, a discount on future orders or additional pilot training and services.

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.亚博极速下注千花坊品茶微信

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation con

sulting firm and professor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first imp

ression. Some of what Boeing proposes to do may be contractual and it’s certainly sound public relations. Boeing wants to keep its customers happy.”亚博极速下注千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for?Southwest Airlines?said this month it will ask?B

oeing ?for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.

亚博极速下注千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept

2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”

亚博极速下注千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa

rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c

ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi

a and October 29, 2018, in Indonesia that killed a total of 346 passengers and crew.

Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an automated anti-stall device, apparently fo

rced the noses of Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines flights down and into a fatal plunge when it erroneously deter

mined the planes were about to stall. To avoid a stall, MCAS points the nose of the plane down to gain air speed.
