Different from the first several batches of tariffs that focused more on industrial and agricultural products, the most rece

nt 25 percent tariffs on Chinese imports target mostly consumer products, including sneakers, clothing and furniture.

Trump has, on his Twitter account, asserted that “there is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs”.

The open letter, however, said “there should be no misunderstanding” that US consumers pay for tariffs on products that are imported.

“As an industry that faces a $3 billion duty bill every year, we can assure you that any incr

ease in the cost of importing shoes has a direct impact on the American footwear consumer,” it said.

It is an “unavoidable” fact that as prices go up at the border due to transportation costs, labor r

ate increases or additional duties, the consumer pays more for the product, the footwear trade and business association said.

Ren said in an interview with Chinese media in Shenzhen on Tuesday that “We are very grateful to the

US companies. They have made a lot of contributions to us. Many of our consultants are from American companies such as IBM.

“We can make chips as good as those made by US companies, but it does not mean that we will not buy chips from them,” Ren added.

He said the company will not exclude US chips. “Instead, we should grow together. But if there is a

supply shortage, we have a backup. In the “peace period”, half of our chips are from the US companies and half

from Huawei. We cannot be isolated from the world.”Ren also highlighted that Huawei’s 5G plan will not be affected by

the US ban. “Others will definitely not be able to catch up with Huawei in 5G technologies for two or three years,” he said.

Beijing urged Washington on Saturday “not to go too far” in harming China’s interest

s, and called for it to change course to avoid further damaging bilateral ties.

China firmly opposes the United States’ recent remarks and actions that harmed China’s interests, in

cluding its resorting to political means to suppress normal operations of Chinese companies, State Coun

cilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a phone call with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

History and reality show that China and the US both benefit f

rom cooperating with each other, while both suffer from bilate

ral conflicts, and cooperation is the only proper choice for the two major countries, Wang said.

“We have been developing backup products for years in anticipat

ion. … Such efforts can ensure the strategic safety of most of the company’s products an

d a continuous supply of most products,” said HiSilicon President He Tingbo in an internal letter.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a news conferen

ce on Friday that the development and utilization of 5G depends on global cooperation, and inte

rference by the US undermines the principle of fair competition and shows a lack of respect for other countries.

HiSilicon, which was founded in 2004, has designed chipsets like Ki

rin, which has been used in Huawei’s high-end smartphones. In addition to server chips, th

e company has also developed chips for base stations, basebands and chipsets powered by artificial intelligence.

wei has long been preparing for independent research and development in core technologies. It has the ab

ility to adjust to changes in the global market,” said Xiang Ligang, director-general of the Information Consumption Alliance.

Huawei has also made preparations with core chipsets. Existing st

ocks are thought to provide the company with a buffer of six months to a year, he said.

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a

great extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of eco

nomics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objecti

ves-though many of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the

US hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

tains, deserts, oceans and a lack of accurate meteorological information. The number o

f meteorological disasters in the regions is more than double the global average, the administration said.

Wei Caiying, deputy general-director of the National Satellite Meteoro

logical Center, said that real-time disaster monitoring by meteorological satellites coul

d provide these countries with a scientific basis for disaster prevention and reduction.

“Weather-related disasters such as typhoons pose a threat to life and property. T

racking their path could help local authorities decide how to proceed with evacuations,” she said.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Support Mechanism for int

ernational users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

Having trouble discerning one furry panda from another? A facial recognition app will make it easy for you.

The app is developed by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas

along with researchers in Singapore Nanyang Technological university and Sichuan Normal University.

The image analysis research kicked off in 2017. A database now contains about 120,000 images and 10,000 video clips of giant pandas.

Close to 10,000 panda pictures have been analyzed, marked and annotated.

Using the database, researchers are able to carry out automa

tic facial recognition on panda faces to tell one animal from another, the center said.
