portant stabilizing factor, he said. China’s research and development spending ranks se

cond in the world, accounting for around 2.18 percent of its GDP, while emerging strategic industries, the

sharing economy and other new growth engines are also seeing continuous expansion.

The strong leadership of the Communist Party of China and the solid material and technological foundation built through decad

es of rapid development in the era of reform and opening-up will also help shore up economic growth, he said.

He added that China also has enormous resilience, potential and flexibility in developm

ent, deep experience in macroeconomic regulation and ample space for policy adjustments.

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agric

ricultural products such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned

tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

“I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chinese-im

posed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in our

aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposi

ng 25 percent tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with

tariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June

The US no longer accounts for such a significant market share as

it did in the old days,” Mei said. “And the major market share is taken by the domestic mar

ket, Europe, Japan and other emerging overseas markets. The US move will gradually later affect its own market.”

Mei said the US ban on Chinese tech titan Huawei and rumored imposition of restrict

ions on Chinese surveillance giant Hikvision will not hamper the growth of China’s tech sector.

The US accounts for only a small part of Hikvision’s overseas ma

rkets, and Hikvision is not heavily reliant on US components for production, Mei said.

“Huawei’s chip arm HiSilicon has produced 70 percent of global surveillance chips. In past years, Ja

panese companies were Hikvision’s main chip suppliers, and now the major supplier is HiSilicon.” Mei added.

Universities were urged to strengthen regulation of indepen

 independent enrollment of students with special talents.

Independent enrollment was added as an admission alternative a decade ago to allow some key uni

versities to enroll students they choose fit. Tests of academic competence and interviews are usually required.

However, the rise of fraud cases in independent enrollment in re

cent years has tainted the practice’s reputation and caught the authorities’ attention.

Huawei Technologies Co is securing support from some key suppliers and custome

rs amid the announced United States government restrictions on the Chinese telecom giant.

Panasonic Corp said on its China website on Thursday that it is continui

ng to supply components to Huawei despite reports that it will cut cooperation.

Lu’s comment followed US Treasury Secretary Steven Mn

nuchin’s comments on Wednesday that he is hopeful that both countries can “go back to the table”.

Lu told a Foreign Ministry news briefing that China has reiterated that it

s door is always open, but negotiations must be meaningful and conducted with sincerity.

“A mutually beneficial deal must be based on mutual respect, equality and win-win outcomes,” he said.

The US, out of political purposes, has used its state power to groundlessly suppress Chinese te

ch firms, which has severely affected the global development and cooperation in science and technology, he said.

It has also damaged the interests of businesses of relevant countri

es and will not win the approval and support of the international society, he added.

“Apparently it will not help create a good atmosphere for the negotiations,” he said.
