With the Office of the United States Trade Representative threatening to impose new tariff

s on $4 billion worth of European Union goods, the trade conflict between the US and the EU has inten上海千花坊品茶微信

sified. And if the US makes good the threat it issued on July 1, the additional tariffs would cover $25 billion of EU go

上海千花坊ods-in April the US had decided to impose additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU products. In addition, the US adm

inistration launched a Section 301 investigation against the digital service tax of France on July 10.

Washington’s move seems to have roots in the 15-year-old dispute over the su上海千花坊

sidies given to Boeing by the US and to Airbus by the EU. The US is using tariffs t

上海千花坊品茶微信o exert pressure on the EU to reduce subsidies to Airbus so Boeing can maintain its competitiveness in the global ma

rket and the jobs in the US plane manufacturing industry could be protected.

The US is wielding tariff as weapon also to increase its bargaining chips in the negotiations over “three zeros”-zero ta上海千花坊

riff, zero tariff barriers and zero subsidy-for non-auto industrial products.

Since the US and the EU have wide differences over auto and agri上海千花坊品茶微信

cultural products, the negotiations remain mired in uncertainty, although Washington com

pelled Brussels to continue the talks by threatening to impose fresh tariffs on EU goods in April.上海千花坊

As US President Donald Trump prepares to launch his re-election campaign, he is trying to mitigate US farmers’ sufferings, as the

votes from the agricultural belts helped him win the 2016 presidential election. The US administration has pro上海千花坊品茶微信

vided numerous subsidies for farmers to help offset their losses due to the US’ trade disputes with China, the EU and othe

r economies, but subsidies alone cannot solve the farmers’ problems. So Washington has put some EU agricu

ltural products on the tariff list in an effort to protect its agricultural products market.

However, the fact that the EU has agreed to resume negotiations on subsidies to the plane ma

nufacturing industry does not mean it will not take countermeasures if the US does impose mo

re tariffs on EU goods. In April, when the US levied additional tariffs on $21 billion of EU go

ods, Brussels responded by imposing tariffs on€20 billion ($22.43 billion) of US products.

“I love Chinese Kongfu, I like Bruce Lee,” Njumbe added.

Chinese songs are not the only area Njumbe is good at, he can also recite poems from上海千花坊品茶微信

China’s Tang Dynasty (618-907). He can also easily recite Di Zi Gui – The Rules for Students – from ancient China.

Njumbe is just one of the 38 players aged from 5 to 82 from six states in the U.S. Midwest to participate in the Chinese songs contest.

上海千花坊Emily Mcclintick, a seven-year-old girl, sang “Pear Trees Bloom Again” and another song at the competition and came out the sixth place.

lture and language,” Yang said. She hoped that more people will take part in the contest next year.

Electric carmaker NIO will replace the power battery

pack with an improved version for vehicles within the scope of the recall for free to eliminate safety hazards.At least three NIO ES8 vehicles上海千花坊

had self-ignition accidents in the past three months and the State Administration for Market Regulation has started investigating the vehicles in these incidents.上海千花坊

Apart from recalling vehicles with safety hazards, the company has also established a transde

“上海千花坊We are very optimistic about the future of China’s business environment,” said Eric Liu, manag

Despite the uncertaint女神会所y caused by the trade conflict, which has put investment and consumption on hold, Liu said he beli

“China has become increasingly innovative, and is determined to develop an advanced legal regime for

IP protectio上海千花坊女神会所n, and new protection mechanisms have already taken shape in the country,” he said in a written reply.

He believes China will step up its efforts in protecting the int

Asked about his take on the China-US trade dispute, Liu said: “Although we have seen many uncertainties concerning the tr上海千花坊

ade dynamics between China and the US, we still believe in the potential and vitality of trade and investment markets.”

SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”
