It was in the European Parliament elections five years

ago that small numbers of nationalists and far-right politicians won seats, signaling the challenges since faced by ruling parties acr

oss the EU, said Cui Hongjian, director of the department for European studies at the China Institute of International Studies.

Clemens von Goetze, Germany’s ambassador to China, said at a news conference

in Beijing on Saturday that he hopes mainstream political groups that support the integration of EU will win the elections.

The move fully demonstrates Beijing’s firm determinati

on to defend its due interests and legitimate rights in international trade and economic cooperation, according to analysts.

The US has totally ignored the fact that China has been eager to resolve trade and economic issues through high-level official ta

lks and pledged to further expand market access for global businesses, said Liang Ming, a senior resea

rcher at the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation.

China has emphasized that the US should not use the tariff method. That is not just for China’s benefit; it is the rational choice a

rnational trade office at the Institute of World Economics and Politics under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

US soy farmers call for cool-down of trade tensions

US soy farmers have urged Washington to work for a positive solution to the current tarif

f dispute with the world’s top oilseed buyer China, and avoid further escalation of trade tensions.

In a statement released late Tuesday, the American Soybean Association (ASA) described the t

hreat by US President Donald Trump’s administration to increase the tariff rate from 10 percent to 25 p

ercent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods as the “worst case” for US soybean growers.

“This is a predicament for soy growers,” said Davie Stephens, ASA president and a soybean farmer from Kentucky.

“With depressed (soybean) prices and unsold stocks fo

recast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, we nee

d the China market reopened to US soybean exports within weeks, not months or longer,” he added.

ities have grown more quickly than in big cities, including clothing, food, beverages and home appliances, Chen added.

During Spring Festival in February, small-town youths in third- an

d lower-tier cities outperformed their peers in bigger centers of population in consu

mption across major e-commerce platforms, including the number of orders placed and the range of products bought.

In third- and fourth-tier cities, total online spending during Spring Festival rose by 55 percent year-on-year, comp

ared with 51 percent in first-tier metropolises. Spending by small-town youths on beauty products rose by 7.8 perc

ent year-on-year, compared with a 5.4 percent increase among their peers in larger cities, according to a report rel

eased by Tmall-Alibaba’s e-commerce platform-and market research company Kantar Worldpanel.

Small-town youths have also boosted the movie industry. For example, in the first quarter of this year, some

56 percent of the box office for The New King of Comedy came from lower-tier cities, as did 46 percent for Crazy Alien.

 “I go on trips twice a year. I usually do not buy souvenirs on the road, because they are q

uite similar and less creative, which I can easily find at the stalls of Shanghai’s Town God Temple.”

Netizens in China joke online Yiwu’s residents need

not buy souvenirs at other places as all such articles originate in their hometown.

As Shi sees it, there is immense scope to reinvent the concept of souvenirs in general and Chinese souvenirs in particular.

Souvenirs, he said, should be made in various formats-a local snack, curries from In

dia, black tea from Sri Lanka, dried apricots from Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, or Spanish Iberian ham.

They could also be in the form of a delicate little gift of a key ch

ain, handicraft or fridge magnet, but a special local product would be ideal.

Chen said most Chinese scientists and researchers foc

us on translational research that applies a new discovery from basic research and moves it along toward clinical practice.

“But I think Chinese scientists need to focus more on making innovative and new dis

coveries from basic research and develop new methods for cancer treatment from that,” he said.

China and the US are working together in many medical research areas, Chen said, citing the clinica

l practice cooperation between China and large US pharmaceutical companies, which he said is “huge now”.

“The cooperation between specialists and pharmaceutical companies in China and the US can potentially accelerate resea

rch and development of new drugs and translate laboratory findings to treat human cancers,” he said.

Chen said that there are still many other areas in which the US and China can work together.
