Ministry: Foreign firms won’t disregard own interests

Enterprises in any country will not disregard their own interests and blindly follow other cou

ntries’ “political command”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Thursday, after comp

anies confirmed cooperation with Chinese telecommunications equipment maker Huawei will continue.

Panasonic made a “solemn statement” on Thursday that it is supplying Huawei normally, rebukin

g reports that it will cut parts of the component supply. British Telecom, parent group of telecom oper

ator EE, said on Wednesday Huawei will continue to supply their 5G radio network infrastructure, Xinhua reported.

China hopes that the US can take a serious attitude about going back to the negotiating table and ensure that negotiations are meaningful, said Lu.

tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

According to locals like Ahmat, the Lop Nur people fished for food in the area famous for the

vast Lop Nur lake, where historically the Tarim River ended. The lake dried up not long after the water in the

river had gone. As such, many fishermen packed away their rods and instead pursued herding and farming.

“When I was a child, I never ate fish. Nor did I ever see my grandfather or father go fishing,” says Ahmat.

When the ‘black storms’ struck, I could see nothing, and the shee

p couldn’t find their way home,” he recalled of the sandstorms in the old days.

“Nothing could be seen when a black storm hit, and nothing was left after the sto

rm,” says Wang Jianben, 74, who lives on a farm some 100 km away from Ahmat’s village.

“Most of the crops would be blown away, and the farmers had to replant the crops three to four times in a single spring.”

If they wanted a replay of what happened to ZTE, a Chinese company which relies heavily on outsider

technologies, they may never see it. Because Huawei is a dramatically different kind of business.

The Plan B Huawei has just revealed — a series of self-developed chips — is only part of what makes it an enterprise of strategic insight, and hence resilience. Over

time, that insight has rewarded it with a viable biosphere that its founder Ren Zhengfei believes will enable it to weat

her the storm. “Our growth may drop a bit in the wake of US restrictions, but negative growth is impossible,” said a confident Ren during a Tuesday inter

view with Chinese media, adding that Huawei has cultivated longstanding trust with industry partners.

That may be why, even after Google barred Huawei from some Android featur

es, Ren spoke highly of the Silicon Valley giant, praising it as a “good company”. That may

More comprehensive and well-targeted policy respon

More comprehensive and well-targeted policy respon

ses are needed to tackle the current growth slowdown,” Elliot Harris, UN chief economist and assi

stant secretary-general for economic development, said Tuesday at a news conference. “It is increasingly clear that policies to pro

mote sustainable development will need to look beyond GDP growth and identify new and more robust measures of

economic performance that appropriately reflect the costs of inequality, insecurity and climate change.”

In response to slowing growth and subdued inflation, major central banks have eased their monetary policy stances. The recent mo

netary policy shifts have helped to stabilize global financial markets and capital flows to emerging economies.

However, the report cautions that a more protracted period of monetary accommodation could exacerbate fina

ncial imbalances, including further fueling debt accumulation and raising medium-term risks to financial stability.

A recent report by the Beijing Municipal Education

A recent report by the Beijing Municipal Education

 Commission said that more than 231,000 college students graduated from universities in

Beijing last year, but 37.5 percent of employed graduates chose to work outside the capital.

A female college student surnamed Zhang said that she chose to w

ork in Wuhan, Hubei province, after graduating from Tsinghua University in June, 2018.

“The biggest reason driving me away from Beijing was the living cost,” she said. “Tho

ugh I can earn 8,000 ($1,160) or even 10,000 yuan a month in Beijing, the rent may cost me 3,000 yuan or more ea

ch month, let alone other expenses such as meals, transportation and getting together with friends.”

In contrast, some so-called new first-tier cities like Chengdu, Sichua

n province; Hangzhou, Zhejiang province; and Wuhan have sprung up as new at

tractions to college graduates for their cheaper living costs and preferential policies to newcomers.
