Hong Kong has agreements on extradition arrangem

angements with 20 jurisdictions. The Chinese mainland, Macao and Taiwan are not among them.

The revision was triggered by a murder case in which a Hong Kong ma

n, Chan Tong-kai, allegedly killed his pregnant girlfriend in Taiwan and then fled back to the c

ty. The Taiwan authorities are unable to prosecute him as the two sides have no fugitive transfer arrangements.

During the meeting, Han also hailed the contribution of the Hong Kong Federation of Fujian Associations in pro

moting exchanges and cooperation between Hong Kong and the mainland, as well as its efforts in maintaining Hong Kong’s

prosperity and stability. He hoped that the organization can continue to firmly safeguard national sovereignty.

The US administration’s more often than not conflicti

conflicting goals have resulted in the trade conflicts with China an

d other countries. For instance, China’s exports to the US grew 11.3 percent

and its trade surplus with the US increased to $323 billion in 2018, up 17.3 percent year-on-year.

Moreover, Washington has forbidden US companies to sell chips to ZTE, a Chinese multinational telecommunications equip

ment and systems company, even after imposing huge fines on the company. By so doing, the US has act

ually encouraged China to increase investment in its high-tech sector. So, even if China and the US

were to strike a deal, China would be prompted to import lower volumes of energy and agricultural products from the US.

China and the US started tit-for-tat tariff exchanges in July,

 when the first round of tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods

took effect. There has been strong opposition to the tariff measures from the US side.

Joe Biden, a Democratic candidate for US president, said on Monda

y, “The only people paying the price are farmers and working people right now”.

“Raising tariffs will hurt both the US and China economies, plus more importantly, they will hurt US farmers, co

nsumers and businesses,” tweeted Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a major soybean-producing state.

The world’s two largest economies have intensified their consultations to iron out differe

nces on existing trade issues. An 11th round of high-level talks was held in Washington on Thursday and Friday.

Short-video apps such as Douyin and Kuaishou offer maj

major platforms for them to learn about the outside world. They also l

ike to use social networking platforms such as Pinduoduo and WeChat, on which they can bu

y products, socialize with friends, learn about the latest fashion trends and make purchases, Yu said.

“For example, Pinduoduo asks consumers to invite friends to join the platform, to help r

educe prices, which can be a good way of obtaining new customers and retaining them,” he said. “C

onsumers also like purchasing activities that can strengthen connections with friends.”

t hang out with friends, and 60 percent watch movies, according to Sun’s report.

“They want it to look like an impeachment hearing

 because they won’t bring impeachment proceedings,” Collins said.

The report detailed extensive contacts between Trump’s 2016 preside

ntial campaign and Moscow and the campaign’s expectation that it would ben

efit from Russia’s actions, which included hacking and propaganda to boost Trump and harm Democratic can

didate Hillary Clinton. The report also detailed a series of actions Trump took to try to impede the investigation.

Mueller, a former FBI director, concluded there was insufficient evide

nce to show a criminal conspiracy and opted not to make a conclusion on whether Trump committed obstruction of j

ustice, but pointedly did not exonerate him. Barr has said he and Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department’s No. 2 off

icial, then determined there was not enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction.

There is some merit to raising capital,” said Chief Exec

cutive Elon Musk on a call discussing the results. “It’s probably about the right time.”

He also said he would prefer Tesla to be private but “that ship has sailed.”

The company which is ramping up production of its Model 3 electric sedan, the vehicle Tesla sees as the key to future succ

ess, stood by its 2019 delivery forecast of 360,000 to 400,000 vehicles and said it may produce as many as 50

0,000 vehicles if its factory in Shanghai reaches volume production in the fourth quarter.

Tesla said it would make a loss in its second quarter but predicted a return to profit in the third.

Musk said that global deliveries were “the most difficult logistics problem” he had ever seen.

Haris Anwar, senior analyst a financial markets platform Investing.com, called guida

nce for the second quarter “bleak”. “I continue to see a very volatile 2019 for Tesla and its shares,” Anwar said.
