At the same time, the tariff proposal shows that Washington has turned a blind eye to the tremendous efforts made by both n

The US announced the new tariff threat shortly after the 12th round of high-level trade talks in late Ju

On Tuesday, the Office of the US Trade Representative said it will delay 10 percent ta

Yang Weiyong, an economics professor at the University of International Business and Ec?亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信

onomics in Beijing, said the US tariff delay is more out of consideration for its own interests-creating sufficient time

for its consumers and trading companies to look for substitute goods in other markets.

“Besides, the US did so because of concerns over the Christmas shopping season. Th

?亚博在线手机乌托邦e government intends to reduce the potential impact of tariffs on US holiday shopping,” Yang said.

But the US plan to merely delay some tariffs by no means sho

According to a Reuters analysis, the delay may encompass around half of th

Sun Lipeng, a research fellow with the China Institutes of Contemporary International?亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信

Washington’s new tariff plan will further burden US consumers and dam

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亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信

Their comments came as Washington threatened to impose an additional 10 percent tariff on $300亚博在线手机乌托邦

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

亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信Huang Renwei, deputy director of Fudan Institute of Belt and Road & Global Governance, said China-US relations are unpre

“We should persist in building a new strategic balance between China and the US, a b亚博在线手机乌托邦

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

Whether the US administration makes the same mistake this time remains to be seen. In any case, it is worth considering how t?亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信

thus dissuade them from participating in the Belt and Road Initiative.

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c亚博在线手机乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
