The United States seems intent on playing the dangerous “Taiwan card” again by allowing Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen to stop over in the US on her way to “v
上海会所isit” some Caribbean countries this month. The US has already made a series of moves, especially the passing of the Ta
iwan Assurance Act by the House of Representatives, which has raised tensions across the Taiwan Straits.上海会所品茶微信
As part of its Indo-Pacific strategy, the US has been trying to woo Japan, Australia and India to form a “
quadrilateral alliance”－known as Quad－aimed at containing China. But as the US pres上海会所
ident’s “America first” agenda is in defiance of the norms followed by the international community, including US all
上海会所品茶微信ies, and considering its huge economic exchanges with China, India is reluctant to side with the US in order to avoid of
fending any party and ending up as a victim of the conflict between the world’s two largest economies.
And since Japan is also reluctant to blindly toe the US line, Washington is using the上海会所品茶微信
“Taiwan card” to bolster its Indo-Pacific strategy and strengthen its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
By following their foreign masters’ guideline, the island’s politicia上海会所
ns such as Tsai create enough space for the US to play the “Taiwan card”. In fact, thanks to th
e covert support of some Taiwan politicians, the US has intensified its strategic activities－for instance, na上海会所品茶微信
vigating its warships through the Straits five times in the past five months, a frequency too high even by US “s
tandards”－in the Asia-Pacific region. Besides, the US has continued selling arms to the island.
By passing acts and resolutions indicating that the US’ relations with the island’s administration are strong not on
ly in political but also military fields, Washington is trying Beijing’s patience on the Taiwan question.
Worse, the US Congress has attempted to use Taiwan as a means to win brown
ie points in its conflict with the mainland by passing a number of acts related to the isl
and including the Taiwan Assurance Act, Taiwan Travel Act and the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018.
Since both Beijing and Washington understandably want to hold their cards close to their chest
s until Xi Jinping and Donald Trump actually sit down to talk, it remains difficult to foretell exactly ho
上海会所w the widely anticipated Saturday meeting between the two presidents on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka will play out.
Both sides appear intent on seeking the best possible outcome, while being prepared for the worst. For all the harshness in thei上海会所
r respective rhetoric, both parties need some kind, or at least degree, of truce. Because both are beginning to feel the pain.
Yet ironing out the obviously substantial divergences between the two governments and sealing a wholesale deal will take time.上海会所品茶微信
So both have come with a Plan B.
“My Plan B with China is to take billions and billions a month … and we’ll do less business with them,” Trump said on Wednesday. Which is unrealistic.
Beijing’s, as both the Foreign Ministry and official media are vowing, is to “fight till the end” in上海会所
that case. Such a scenario would be lose-lose, as it would mean diminishing returns for both.
Global investors are pinning their hopes on the upcoming meeting producing a breakthrough in the cur上海会所品茶微信
rent impasse. The yet-to-be-confirmed report that China and the United States have reached a te

上海会所品茶微信If some kind of truce cake has indeed been baked, as some assume, it certainly would be something worth celebrating.

A pair of gloves and socks were all the betrothal gifts needed for a rural man in China to prepare for a marriage in the 198
0s, but the gifts in modern times have evolved into huge amounts of money, putting great pressure on rural families.
上海会所品茶微信”I took my wife home by riding a bicycle on the day I got married,” said Shan Yi
nhe, a 55-year-old rural villager in Handan, in northern China’s Hebei province.
A marriage ritual in the country’s northern areas usually starts with the bri
degroom picking up the bride in the morning from her home and bringing her to his home, bo
th accompanied by families, relatives and friends. Then a wedding ceremony is held around noon. 上海会所品茶微信
Shan got married in 1988 in Nanduqi village in Feixiang district, about 400 kilometers southwest of Beijing.
Shan prepared a pair of brand-new gloves and socks for his bride’s family, wh 上海会所
ich were all he could manage but were enough for him to begin a happy marriage.
Three decades and two adult sons later, Shan began to feel stressed by the high cost of modern marriages.
上海会所品茶微信At the end of 2017, his second son was about to marry his girlfriend, with whom he had been in a relations
hip for five years. Shan was gratified to see his son happy. But the happiness was accompanied by great pressure.
He needed to come up with a lot of money – 60,000 yuan ($8,722) as betrothal gifts for the bride’s family – to pay for his son’s wedding.
“It is local custom for the bridegroom’s family to give money to the bride’s family, but the
amount has been mounting in the past few years,” Shan said, adding that there is competition among villagers.
Although the amount was at a medium level compared with the cost of other marriages in Shan’s village – where some h
ave topped 150,000 yuan – the expense he bore was equal to about two years of his family’s total income.
Shan earns 2,000 yuan a month as an accountant at the government of Tiantaishan town, which covers his vil
lage. He and his family also grow crops on 0.7 hectares of land, which can yield about 5,000 yuan each year.

“As China’s economy is transitioning to a phase of high-quality growth, the country needs to further open up its economy,” said Li Gan
g, director of the academic committee of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.
“To expand high-level opening-up, China will fully implement the management system of preestablished national treatment and negative lists to encourage foreign investment.”上海会所品茶微信
“In fact,” he added, “many of our industries are still at the low to medium tier in the global market. So we need to take key mea
sures to further improve the business environment and expand market access, encouraging more foreign investment to usher in advanced ma
上海会所nufacturing, modern services and other key sectors. That will help China foster high-quality growth and innovative economic upgrading.”
According to the NDRC announcement, the service sector will see greater opening-up.
The new lists lifted restrictions that the Chinese side must control domestic shipping agencies and gas a上海会所品茶微信
nd heat pipelines in cities with populations of more than 500,000. Restrictions that cinemas and p
erformance brokerage institutions must be controlled by the Chinese side were also eliminated.
Through the shortened lists, the government widened market access for foreign investors in agri上海会所
culture, mining and manufacturing. The lists also lifted prohibitions on foreign investment in the expl
oitation of wildlife resources. Restrictions were canceled on exploration and development of p
上海会所品茶微信etroleum and natural gas, which have been limited to Chinese-foreign equity joint ventures or non-equity joint ventures.
Based on the nationwide list, this year’s version of the FTZ negative list for foreign investment abolishes restrictions on fo
reign investment in such areas as aquatic products, fishing and publications.
On Sunday, the NDRC and the Ministry of Commerce also released a
new industry catalog for encouraging foreign investment, which aims to encourage more
foreign investment in modern agriculture, advanced manufacturing, technology and modern services.
