In an acknowledgment that the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have been talking at cross-purposes, US Secretary of State M

ike Pompeo said on Monday that he hoped both sides could “be a little more creative” with what they bring to the ta

ble when the two sides restart talks aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.上海夜网

The US position hasn’t changed, he said, it still wants full and final denuclearization of the DPRK in a way that it could verify.

上海夜网品茶微信But that in itself constitutes a change of approach from before — one that US President Donald T

rump signaled when he met with DPRK top leader Kim Jung-un in the demilitarized zone — as it drops t

he previous demand the DPRK denuclearize before receiving anything in return.上海夜网

Which suggests it’s not really creativity that’s required, but realistic expectations that can be translated into step-by-step moves.

上海夜网品茶微信Washington might want to bear in mind that the national legislature of the DPRK, the Supreme People’s Assembly, amended

the country’s Constitution in April, re-ascertaining leader Kim Jong-un’s status as a “representative of the state”.

Since few doubted Kim’s role as representative of his

country, the constitutional amendment naturally attracted little interest.上海夜网

But Pyongyang’s belated revelation of the full text of its amended C

上海夜网品茶微信onstitution reveals something that does deserve Washington’s attention.

Although it retains the DPRK’s commitment to being a “nuclear state” — which confirms the assumption that the DPRK has

been deeming itself as a legitimate nuclear power in its talks with the US — the most important change thro上海夜网

ughout the constitutional amendment is literally something that is absent in the present text.

The longstanding “Songun Policy”, the core DPRK national strategy that prioritized

the military in the affairs of state and allocation of resources, has been removed from the amended Const上海夜网品茶微信

itution. This policy simultaneously resulted in the country’s nuclear capabilities and its economic hardships.

Elaborating on the change, Kim stated in his speech at the April meeting that the DPRK’s central上海夜网

task is to concentrate all the energies of the state on economic construction. And the amended Con

上海夜网品茶微信stitution includes new phrases such as “socialist corporate responsibility management system” and “revolutionary busi

ness practices”. Terms reminiscent of those in the early stage of China’s reform and opening-up.

Dongxing Securities analysts noted in the report tha

hat the ban will be an alarm bell for China, and the Chinese government and domestic comp

anies will accelerate the push for developing core industries, including in chips manufacturing.

“As the division of the telecom industrial chain has become globalized, the US ban will also affect US chipmakers’ income,” the report

said. “Huawei lists 33 US companies among core suppliers, accounting for 36 percent of its total key suppliers.”

A strong 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck Peru on Sunday morning, the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) said.

No casualties or material damages have so far been reported.

The IGP first reported the quake measured 7.2 magnitude. It was recorded at 02:41

am local time (0741 GMT) in the province of Alto Amazonas in northern area of the Loreto region.

Hernando Tavera, head of the IGP, told local media: “The quake has been percei

ved with a fairly large radius, including Lima, Junin, Pasco and Iquitos, where there has been a power cut.”

ic importance to Huawei. “TSMC produces most of H

uawei’s chips. Only with its cooperation is it possible for Huawei to have a Plan B in stocking

in-house processors in order to offset fallout from the US ban on its access to US chips,” Xiang said.

He said the move by Panasonic also showcases that the Japanes

e tech company is not willing to surrender to political pressure from Washington, after ear

lier reports that it had stopped shipments of certain components to Huawei. The firm bought $6.3 billion wort

h of products including batteries and electronic components from Panasonic in 2018, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

oao Forum for Asia, that China will grant 5G licenses this year, but didn’t disclose a specific date.

“5G, industrial internet and the internet of vehicles are among the country’s top development priorities

in the telecommunications industry,” Zhang Feng, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, sa

id on Friday during the World Telecommunication and Information Society Day.

Zhang called for accelerated efforts to set standards in key areas, including 5G, to expedite the com

mercialization of this forefront technology and bolster the nation’s core competitiveness.

Major Chinese smartphone maker Huawei Technologies Co has already unveiled its first 5G chip and first 5G fold

able smartphone, the Mate X, which is expected to hit the market in June, despite challenges involving the United States.

Trade agreements can affect the types of goods being

traded and they can redirect trade toward one country, away

from others. They cannot directly affect any country’s worldwide current account balance. A count

ry that saves less than it invests will have to borrow foreign funds to import foreign goods to make up that difference.

There are two ways to reduce the US trade deficit. A serious recession would reduce investme

nt, but nobody advocates that as a strategy. The only other path is to change the US financial and gove

rnment system to encourage increased savings. China has almost nothing to do with it.

Ironically, the disputes between the US and China center around both nations’ legitimate desires to

protect some current low-skilled jobs, or at least to allow an easier transition to new jobs and industries.

retain jobs for working-class people in the US. And, China’s companies that export to the U

Vehicle sales in China continue to drop, NEV sales rise

hinese sales of passenger vehicles, MPVs, SUVs and minivans in March dropped 12 percent on a yearly basis to 1.78 million units.

This is the 10th consecutive monthly decrease, according to the C

hina Passenger Car Association (CPCA), Changjiang Times reported.

The MPV sector saw the largest sales decline, 20.2 percent to 130,000 units in the pas

t month, while SUVs and sedans dropped 10.7 and 12 percent, respectively.

The decreases in 2019’s first quarter are mild compared with those at the end of the last year, CPCA said.

As the State-VI emission standards will be implemented from July 1 this

year, some Japanese brands have launched corresponding products ahead of their co

unterparts, and performed well in sales and consumer confidence, CPCA said.

“Automobile sales in North China, and those in the county and township level, are still weak,” the association added.

Thus, another feather in China’s cap is its establishme

nt of a comprehensive social security system in record time. Having set up the foundation,

it can now focus on targeted improvements. For example, in 2017, China provided special funds for pre-preg

nancy and other medical checkups for women, benefiting 12 million women, or 91.7 percent of the target group.

The country’s modernization could not have occurred without the people increasing their capabilities. Beyond general educ

ation for the population, the government has increased the knowledge and experience of officials to be at the fore

front of solving problems. Specialist schools and academies have been set up in multiple fields, including a national soci

al security school in Beijing to build the capacity of social security officers across the nation.

It is the totality of the Chinese experience over the past four decades, in rebuilding the

country in so many ways, that has become an inspiration for other countries. C

hina has been a diligent student learning from others. Today, it also has many experiences to share with the world.
