I’m excited about the Asian cuisine festival,” said Li Jingy

Xu Hejian, a Beijing official in charge of the event, said visitors can see how Asian food i

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang urged the US gover

 government on Tuesday to consider the costs it would bear through raising tariffs.

He reiterated that China will never capitulate under any external pressure and hopes the US meets China halfway.

The US has no need to “worry about” China’s affairs, Geng said at a daily news conference. The country has made progress i

improving its foreign investment environment and has become a popular investment destination, he sa

id, citing the expansion of US-based Exxon Mobil Corp and Tesla Inc in the market last year.

Geng stressed that China welcomes foreign companies to increase investment in the market and will co

ntinue to establish a more stable, fair, transparent and predictable investment and business environment.

In the past several months, China has announced and

started to implement a “negative list” program that allows foreign co

mpanies to have 100 percent ownership in investments in all areas of the economy, excep

t for a small number of areas, such as telecoms and defense, that are explicitly prohibited.

Also, foreign investment has been simplified by creating a one-stop regulatory shop and a single application process.

These new policies will lead to greater competition within China, forcing C

hina’s companies to become more efficient and to produce higher quality products.

The Chinese government has also recently announced tax cuts and financial regulations desi

gned to help private companies. This will hasten the ongoing transition to a market-driven economy.

Most Chinese State-owned enterprises are not relevant to trade negotiations. Many are in non-tradable sectors such as p

roperty development, infrastructure, or concrete. Others are basically public utilities in telecoms or power.

As the world’s second-largest movie market with a grow

th rate of more than 9 percent three years in a row, the Chinese film market is extreme

ly open and inclusive with outstanding movies from around the world, fine works of Hollyw

ood in particular, being screened in China even before they are shown in other countries.

This shows China’s decision to open up its film market in the trough in 1995 was absolutely right. Since then the quota for Hollywo

od movies has been significantly raised from the initial 10 films a year. The opening up of the Chinese movie ma

rket proves that the more open and inclusive a film market is, the higher the number of good films it will generate o

wing to the active and beneficial exchanges with the world’s most advanced filmmaking countries.

The remarkable performance of about a dozen Chinese movies in recent

years makes it clear that well-made films that showcase Chinese culture and touch Chin

ese people’s hearts could not only become smash hits but also help spread Chinese culture. Which g

But she insisted Britain could still secure a deal and leav

e before Britons would have to vote in a May 23-26 election to the European Parliament — a condit

ion for the country to remain a member of the bloc beyond June 1 under the EU’s accord.

Many leaders had wanted a much longer extension, to the end of the year or even next March, but French President Emma

nuel Macron mounted stiff resistance throughout the evening, eventually forcing the compromise.

Macron questioned May’s ability to persuade parliament to her treaty, EU officials sa

id, and said that a tighter deadline would focus British minds. Others argued that an even longer exten

sion could spook May’s pro-Brexit critics into backing her deal for fear Brexit might stall.

The core of Beijing’s high-quality development is to

 better deal with the relationship between ‘capital’ and ‘city’, which is to strengthen the four funct

ions of Beijing — the national center of politics, culture, international communications and scient

ific innovation,” said Cai Qi, Party secretary of Beijing, last month during the two sessions.

According to the municipal authority, the new economy — industries with intensive innovation a

nd knowledge — now makes up 33 percent of the city’s economy, and this ratio is expected to keep growing.

President Xi Jinping’s three-nation visit to Europe last month prod

uced tangible fruits and showed that despite any differences that may exist between China and

the European Union, they have the common desire to strengthen cooperation.

Thanks to mutual efforts from both sides, China-EU interaction has been displaying good momentum. Over the years, their economic

interests have become increasingly intertwined, and people-to-people exchanges have flourished, formin

g a solid foundation on which bilateral ties have been able to grow and prosper in an all-around way.

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.”

She would also become the fourth Conservative prime min

ister in a row to have fallen foul of divisions over Europe within her centuries-old party, following David Cameron, John Major and Margaret Thatcher.

Most voters think the Brexit negotiation has been handled badly and there may now be a slight majority for staying in the EU, rec

ent polls suggest. Many Conservative MPs say May herself has caused the chaos by not negotiating harder with the EU.

“It was inevitable and I just feel she’s made the right decision. She has actually read the m

ood of the party, which was a surprise,” said Conservative lawmaker Pauline Latham.

Over two decades since her debut appearance at Wimbledon, Chinese legend Li

Li first competed there in the girls’ singles in 1998, and was tripped up by the switch f

“I had no clue at all on how to play on grass,” Li recalled at Tuesday’s The Road to Wimbledon junior training camp in Beijing.

North Korea has yet to issue any direct public statement on

  the decision to withdraw. Chad O’Carroll, an analyst and chief executive of the K

orea Risk Group, said the move was to be expected following the failure of the Hanoi summit.

  ”North Korea’s pull-out Friday from the Kaesong Lias

on Office has been on cards since Hanoi, given recent no-shows there,” he said on Twitter.

  He added that the move was designed to send a message that from

Pyongyang’s perspective “Seoul has insufficient influence” over the US-North Korea rela

tionship and that intra-Korean talks are increasingly pointless, “when sanctions prevent practical cooperation.”

  Following the Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi, the US and South Korea canceled major war ga

mes that have long been a source of tensions on the Korean Peninsula in order to “support diplomatic efforts” with Pyongyang.

  Speaking on Thursday, Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he was “absolutely confide

nt” that smaller exercises held in place of the traditional war games enabled the US and South Korean forces to “maintain readiness.”
