I’m very optimistic on the China-US trade relationship

p,” Cyrus Habib, lieutenant governor of Washington, said in an interview with China Daily as he w

as attending the Fifth China-US Governors Forum in Lexington, Kentucky, last week.

China is the state of Washington’s top trading partner, with more than 20 percent of the s

tate’s exports going to China, and around 30 percent of its imports came from China in 2018, according to the US Census Bureau.

“It’s truly something that touches every part of our state,” said Habib. “And that went from the information comm

unication technology sector and manufacturing sector all the way to the agricultural industry and tourism.”

One of the most valuable companies in Washington, and the United States, Mic

octor draws diagrams before carrying out surgeaws schemat

heng Zhaoyun, 55, vice-president of Central China Fuwai Cardiovascular Hospital in Zhengzhou, H

enan province, has a habit of drawing schematic diagrams before carrying out surgeries on patients with heart disease.

The habit started since he returned to China after studying in Australia in the second half of 2000.

Up to now, more than 4,000 hand-drawn patients’ schematic diagrams are housed in his off

ice, recording the surgeries of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in the past 18 years.

The colorful schematic diagrams show the detailed information of different patients, Cheng said.

The diagrams were regarded as preoperative preparations fo

r better knowing the patients and also reference materials for doctors to perform heart surgeries.

Heart disease has become one of the biggest diseases in recent years, Cheng said.

ite mixed, very dynamic and very open as well.”

Liu said that according to statistics, about 80 percent of Chinese employees were employed b

y private enterprises, and 80 percent of Chinese exports were done by private companies.

Asked how the US businesses operate in China with the risk of their intellectual property rights b

eing stolen, Liu said many American companies have been established in China and they’re very profitable.

“The great majority of them, I believe, plan to continue to invest i

n China and explore the Chinese market as well,” Liu said. “Now, US President Donald Tru

mp’s tariff makes it a little bit more difficult — makes the future a little bit uncertain.”

Liu said that there is consensus among Chinese people that no c

ountry or individual “can be stronger” and “develop itself” without intellectual prop

erty protection, and that isolated cases do not mean that America is stealing or Chinese people are stealing.

Trade row must prompt China to explore other markets

Since the Sino-US trade dispute is likely to continue, China should prepare for a long haul. For instance, it should take the opportunity to further diversify its m

arket. What’s reassuring is that in the first quarter, China’s trade with Belt and Road countries grew 7.8 percent, 4.1 pe

rcentage points more than the overall trade growth, and its ratio in total trade increased by 1.1 percentage points.

The US has not only caused damage to the Chinese and wor

ld economies, but also inflicted pain upon itself by imposing higher tariffs of Chinese goods.

More importantly, by deviating from the consensus reached by the

international community and reneging on the promises it made to the world, the US has pushed the t

wo countries from a state of balanced cooperation into a state of prisoner’s dilemma.

Before the development of the possible vaccines, researchers in the academy managed to isol

The Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences will also focus efforts over the next f

Tian Dewen, a researcher in European Studies at the Chines

He is certain that nationalist and far-right parties will gain ground, but it is still possible that the mainstream groups, which a

A major problem related to pneumoconiosis is diagnosis an

d compensation, as its latency period can be decades. By the time patients seek medical h

elp they might find their employers long closed, or they may realize they haven’t signed a labor con

tract and therefore can’t provide documents often needed for the diagnosis.

Also, a large number of migrant workers have not joined occupational injury insurance progra

ms, increasing their financial challenges in treating the lifelong disease, according to the commission.

The commission is working with other ministries and departments

to improve policies and provide better insurance to such patients, Li said.

In 2018, the commission asked health authorities in all provinces to cover pneumoconiosis patients in their efforts to relie

ve financial burdens and ease the task of applying for assistance by impoverished people in rural areas.
