Companies on the list 上海夜生活 obtain a special li

icense from the US government for US materials and technology exports. In practice, such approval is rarely granted.

Chinese companies previously added to the list include high-tech giant Huawei Technolo上海夜生活品茶微信

gies Co and five other tech firms in the fields of chips and supercomputing.

上海夜生活Experts said the new US move is just part of its concerted efforts to hi

nder China’s fast-growing nuclear industry, but such attempts will be in vain.

“The restriction on CGN is another attempt to curb China’s development, similar to that against Huawei,” said Hu Chi

, a researcher at the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.上海夜生活品茶微信

“However, China has homegrown nuclear power technologies and is able to design and manufacture most of the comp

onents and devices domestically, while among the few imported items, very few are from the US.”

上海夜生活China could always turn to other countries for similar impor

ts or invest more in domestic research and development to avoid US imports, altho

ugh existing nuclear power projects that use US technologies are likely to be affected, he said.上海夜生活品茶微信

CGN, one of China’s largest nuclear energy companies, said the US

上海夜生活move will have “basically manageable influence” on the company’s development.

In October, the US government announced a new policy fram

ework for civil nuclear cooperation with China which imposes significant restrictions on U上海夜生活品茶微信

S exports of commercial nuclear technology, equipment and material to China.

In 2016, the US Department of Justice accused CGN of leading a conspiracy to steal US energy sector secrets.上海夜生活

A senior nuclear energy expert at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, who ask

ed to remain anonymous, said the restriction may have some influence on CGN’s H上海夜生活品茶微信

ualong One project at the Bradwell nuclear power station in the United Kingdo

m, but it generally will have little impact on the company and China’s nuclear power industry.

not a response to the draft extradition bill, Nouvelles d’Europe cited him as saying.

 for Herbert Smith Freehills. The London-headquartered law firm has also been work

ing with Hiswara Bunjamin and Tandjung in Indonesia in a similar fashion for the last 15 years.上海夜网女神会所

Gavin Guo, international partner of Kewei, said that they had submitted an application for the joint operation to the Shang

上海夜网hai Municipal Bureau of Justice earlier this year and it took them three months to get the green light.

According to Guo, the joint operation of law firms is different from a joint ven

ture and does not include equity options. The two law firms are still independent e上海夜网女神会所

ntities but share administrative resources and provide one-stop legal services to clients.

Such joint operation models are attractive for multinational companies with operat上海夜网

ions in China and outbound Chinese companies, said Guo. Before this, companies need to go to a foreign la

上海夜网女神会所w firm and a Chinese law firm separately for legal services. This can be avoided as communication with both the l

aw firms can be completed in the same office and will incur only a single charge, he said.上海夜网

“Given the current global economic and political uncertainties and trade friction, governments are tightening their scru

上海夜网tiny and regulation in areas like foreign direct investment. The joint operation model will play a big role in te

rms of transaction habits, disputes resolution and even company strategies,” he said.

The first joint operation was set up by the Chicago-headquartered Baker McKenzie and Beijing Fenxun Partners in April 201上海夜网女神会所

Trump’s declaration is 上海后花园nt with any of the pr

reviously announced standards,” Hufbauer said. “Trump is toying with the idea of countervailing currency interve

上海后花园ntion-selling dollars to buy yuan-but that seems unlikely. The Fed is not likely to go along, and the Exchange Stab

ilization Fund controlled by the Treasury does not have the big bucks needed to move currency markets.”

In July, the IMF said the US dollar was overvalued by 6 percent to 12 percent based on near-ter上海后花园女神会所

m economic fundamentals, while China’s yuan was seen as broadly in line with fundamentals.

上海后花园Some estimate that a 10 percent appreciation of the dollar, relative to a trade-weighted current basket, reduces US

exports by about 1 percent of gross domestic product, or about $200 billion annually,” he said.

Usha Haley, the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair in International Business a上海后花园女神会所

nd a professor of management at Wichita State University, concurred that China did not manipulate its currency.

“A counter-argument to Trump would be China has just responded to these new rounds of tariffs,” she told China Daily.

上海后花园”The first rule of successful negotiations should be understanding

the other party and its interest, and it appears neither side understands the other.

“When elephants fight, the grass gets trampled,” she said. “In this case, the trade上海后花园女神会所

dispute between China and the US is hurting both parties and the global economy.”

In a statement on Monday, PBOC Governor Yi Gang said: “As a responsible big country, China will abide by the spirit of th

上海后花园e G20 Leaders Summit on the exchange-rate issue, adhere to the market-determined exchange-rate sys

tem, not engage in competitive devaluation, not use the exchange rate for competitive purposes and not use the

exchange rate as a tool to deal with external disturbances such as trade disputes.”上海后花园女神会所

Currency manipulation is based on two assumptions: First, that a nation

can lower the international value of its money by acquiring foreign currency r

eserves, and second, that a weaker currency gives a nation an unfair trade advantage.

China, US must seek ne上海乌托邦lance of traderal ties bas

Experts: Bilateral ties based on mutual benefits and comparative advantages

China and the United States need to establish a new balance of trade, finance and tech上海乌托邦品茶微信

nology cooperation, while avoiding a full-blown confrontation amid intensified tensions, experts said.

Their comments came as Washington threatened to impose an additional 10 percent tariff on $300上海乌托邦

billion worth of Chinese goods starting Sept 1, and labeled China “a currency manipulator”.

上海乌托邦品茶微信Huang Renwei, deputy director of Fudan Institute of Belt and Road & Global Governance, said China-US relations are unpre

cedentedly grim, because the ballast stone-their economic and trade ties-has been facing harsh confrontation.

“We should persist in building a new strategic balance between China and the US, a b上海乌托邦

Such a balance cannot be immediately established, but the goal won’t be c

上海乌托邦品茶微信hanged, Huang said. Only when those US hard-liners are greatly challenged, will they come to seek the new balance, he added.

Wang Wen, chief economist with China Export and Credit Insurance Corp, sa

progress that both parties made in the past 12 rounds of high-level talks in vain.
