Recent monetary and fiscal stimulus measures are expe

The US recently signaled its intention to impose additional tariffs on the European Union, primarily targeted at the

aircraft and food industries. It is in addition to the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs that are already in place.

Amid unresolved trade disputes and higher tariffs, the projected growth of world tra

de has been revised downwards to 2.7 percent in 2019, slowing markedly from 3.4 percent in 2018.

The report warns that “the impact of a spiral of additional tariffs and retalia

Hu Kunxu, 17, finds the booklet very helpful, particularly

 at the end of the semester. “The key knowledge is clearly pinpointed, and I make notes.

When the end of the semester arrives, I read it again. It is especially helpful for my exam,” she said.

Wang, the history teacher, said the document iThe Jiangsu teachers have all been given free lodgings next to the scho

core contents still come from the textbook, but they are listed in a more straightforward way.

“After reading it, the students gain a basic understanding of the things they need to research about the subject,” he said.

“Only when they form such a basis can they better absorb the knowledge comm

unicated during classes, instead of mechanically cramming knowledge into their heads.”

Then Trump claimed — wrongly — that the EU was unwillin

  g to “negotiate with the Obama administration” about trade. In fact, the prev

ious administration sought to conclude a Transatlantic Trade and Investm

ent Partnership — or TTIP — with Europe, though was unable to get the deal across the line. Trump’s own talks on t

rade with Europe have been inconclusive, after he threatened to spark a trade war.

  Trump vs. his global counterparts

  Trump’s comments on Brexit also illustrated the tendency of a Pre

sident who admires dictators to throw allied leaders under the bus.

  He criticized Prime Minister Theresa May, whose credibility has been shredded by parliamentary defeats.

  ”She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine, I mean, she’s got to do what she’s got to do,” said Trump, who was forced into

a rare apology last year after hammering May’s Brexit strategy on the eve of meeting her in the UK.

School administrators asked to eat with students to strengt

People in charge of kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in China should eat with students at school can

teens to strengthen the safety of campus food, according to a notice issued on Monday.

The notice, jointly issued by the Ministry of Education, State Admin

istration for Market Regulation and National Health Commission, will take effect on April 1.

It requires that administrators should keep record of each meal and resolve any food problems as soon as possible. Pare

nts can also eat with students at school canteens and give suggestions to the school on food safety and nutrition, it said.

The schools should publish the sources of the food to the public and invite parents to parti

cipate in the management and supervision of food safety and nutrition, the notice said.

Trump, who has faced backlash for saying he took Kim’s

  word that the North Korean leader was unaware of former prisoner Otto Warmbier’s c

apture, said Saturday that he was torn between his obligation to negotiate and his support for the Warmbiers.

  ”I’m in such a horrible position,” Trump said. “Because in one way I have to negotiate. In

the other way, I love Mr. and Mrs. Warmbier. And I love Otto. And it’s a very, very delicate balance.”

  Democrats and socialism

  Trump also accused congressional Democrats of accepting socialism and trying to “replac

e individual rights with total government domination” during the speech.

  ”Just this week more than 100 Democrats in Congress signed up for a socialist takeover of Am

erican health care,” he said, apparently referencing the Medicare For All bill currently supported by many House Democrats.

  Trump said that the plan “would lead to colossal tax increases” and “take away private covera

ge from over 180 million Americans,” as opposed to the private plans and new cooperative plan backed by hi

s administration “where you get better insurance than Obamacare for a fraction of the cost.”

How the Wagah border post became a symbol of India

  Military tensions in the disputed region of Kashmir have erupted in recent

weeks, with India and Pakistan painting different versions of events.

  One thing we do know for certain is that an Indian pilot, identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan, was captured by Pakistan aft

er his plane was shot down in a dogfight earlier this week between Pakistani and Indian warplanes over the ceasefire line in Kashmir.

  He was due to be handed back to India on Friday afternoon, at a famous border post in the village of Wagah.

  While Indian-controlled Kashmir and Pakistani-controlled Kashmir are separate

d by a 435-mile de facto border known as the Line of Control (LoC), Wagah village sits on the international fron

tier to the south between the Pakistani city of Lahore and the Indian city of Amritsar.

  Wagah straddles the border — with the eastern half in India and the western half in Paki

stan — and sits on the Grand Trunk Road, one of the main overland routes between the two nations.

  Pakistani rangers (L) and Indian security forces (R) perform the daily Beating Retreat ceremony at Wagah in August 2017.

  The border post has taken on a symbolic role in the decades-long conflict over Kashmir, despite be

ing outside the disputed region, thanks to a daily military parade known as the Beating Retreat ceremony.

  Every evening there for 60 years, Pakistan’s Rangers and India’s Border Securit

y Force have taken part in a lowering-of-the-flags ceremony before sunset, typically around 4 p.m. local time.

It’s hard to say that China entered a new cycle of credit expansion,” said Zhang Ming, chief eco

nomist at Ping An Securities. “For the whole year, the overall financing growth and money supply is expected to stabilize.”

Fast credit expansion means higher pressure on companies to repay debt and interest, and the space for sustainable credit growth i

s limited, given the current leverage level. Total outstanding debt has exceeded 250 percent of GDP, Zhang said.

The good news is that credit has been channeled effectively into the production sector, such as manuf

acturing and high-tech, and the healthier credit structure can support the overall economic r

estructuring reform, said Ruan Jianhong, head of the central bank’s statistics and analysis department.
