Despite headwinds from the trade tensions, global investors

s are still optimistic about China’s economic prospects, said Z

hang Zhiwei, Deutsche Bank’s chief China economist and head of China equity strategy.

Foreign investors believe that China has enough policy tools to offset short-term downside pressure, while th

e financial risks are under control as the country’s debt level has shown signs of stabilizing, Zhang said.

China’s overall debt-to-GDP ratio had dropped to 249.4 percent by the

end of 2018, 1.5 percentage points lower than a year earlier, according to the PBOC.

If trade tensions escalate further, more opening-up policies in the sectors of medical care

and education will help boost global investors’ confidence in the Chinese economy, Zhang added.

Hong Kong has agreements on extradition arrangem

angements with 20 jurisdictions. The Chinese mainland, Macao and Taiwan are not among them.

The revision was triggered by a murder case in which a Hong Kong ma

n, Chan Tong-kai, allegedly killed his pregnant girlfriend in Taiwan and then fled back to the c

ty. The Taiwan authorities are unable to prosecute him as the two sides have no fugitive transfer arrangements.

During the meeting, Han also hailed the contribution of the Hong Kong Federation of Fujian Associations in pro

moting exchanges and cooperation between Hong Kong and the mainland, as well as its efforts in maintaining Hong Kong’s

prosperity and stability. He hoped that the organization can continue to firmly safeguard national sovereignty.

The US administration’s more often than not conflicti

conflicting goals have resulted in the trade conflicts with China an

d other countries. For instance, China’s exports to the US grew 11.3 percent

and its trade surplus with the US increased to $323 billion in 2018, up 17.3 percent year-on-year.

Moreover, Washington has forbidden US companies to sell chips to ZTE, a Chinese multinational telecommunications equip

ment and systems company, even after imposing huge fines on the company. By so doing, the US has act

ually encouraged China to increase investment in its high-tech sector. So, even if China and the US

were to strike a deal, China would be prompted to import lower volumes of energy and agricultural products from the US.

China and the US started tit-for-tat tariff exchanges in July,

 when the first round of tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods

took effect. There has been strong opposition to the tariff measures from the US side.

Joe Biden, a Democratic candidate for US president, said on Monda

y, “The only people paying the price are farmers and working people right now”.

“Raising tariffs will hurt both the US and China economies, plus more importantly, they will hurt US farmers, co

nsumers and businesses,” tweeted Republican Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a major soybean-producing state.

The world’s two largest economies have intensified their consultations to iron out differe

nces on existing trade issues. An 11th round of high-level talks was held in Washington on Thursday and Friday.

Short-video apps such as Douyin and Kuaishou offer maj

major platforms for them to learn about the outside world. They also l

ike to use social networking platforms such as Pinduoduo and WeChat, on which they can bu

y products, socialize with friends, learn about the latest fashion trends and make purchases, Yu said.

“For example, Pinduoduo asks consumers to invite friends to join the platform, to help r

educe prices, which can be a good way of obtaining new customers and retaining them,” he said. “C

onsumers also like purchasing activities that can strengthen connections with friends.”

Sun said that because they face less work pressure and shorter commuting time, small-town youths have more free time com

t hang out with friends, and 60 percent watch movies, according to Sun’s report.

All of my knowledge and expertise in the space field

 was about ground operations, such as telemetry, tracking and command of spacecraft.

“I want to study satellites. I want to learn and work on communications satellites operating in low Earth orbit, because no

w we have a communications satellite in geosynchronous orbit, and remote-sensing satellites in low Earth orbit,” he said.

“I want to learn how to combine these technologies and do some research here in Beijing, s

o when I come back to my country I can help to develop our own satellite technology,” he added.

Each of Venezuela’s three satellites-one communication and two r

emote-sensing satellites-was designed, built and launched by China.

The Beijing-based China Academy of Space Technology, a subsidiary of State-owned spa

ce giant China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, is a major developer of satellites and spaceships in China.

To attract more foreign investment to China, the country’s

 top legislature recently passed the Foreign Investment Law, which says China will gradually shorten the negative list fo

r foreign investors to increase inbound foreign investment. This, together with Italy’s policy to welcome Chin

ese investment, is expected to help the two countries take more measures to boost investment cooperation.

Sino-Italian friendly exchanges have a long tradition, and the prospects for deeper bilateral cooperation are bright. This ye

ar marks the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Sino-Italian comprehensive strategic partnership, and in 2

020 the two countries will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.

Therefore, the two sides should synergize their development strategies and tap the potential for further bilateral cooperation. They should also strengthen bilate

al macroeconomic policy coordination under the frameworks of G20, World Bank, Asian Development Ban

k, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and other multilateral mechanisms, and help maintain the rule-based multi

lateral trading system and jointly promote global governance reform apart from deepening Sino-Italian and Sino-EU relations.

His arrest may have an impact on upcoming Indian election

due to take place in May.

The discovery of the alleged fraud and Modi’s refusal to return to India to face criminal charges has in

creased pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi — no relation to Nirav Modi — who promised to fight corruption in India.

Tuesday’s arrest and the possibility of extradition could help to improve the Prime Minister’s tarnished image.

Rahul Gandhi, leader of the principle opposition party Congress, has repeatedly attacked PM Modi on his failure to bring fugitives back to India.

In 2016, liquor baron Vijay Mallya left the country owning an estimated $1.6 billion to 17 Indian banks.

The process for Mallya’s extradition to India is ongoing. He has denied fleeing the country ov

er his debts and described charges of fraud and money laundering as “false, fabricated and baseless.”
