In Hainan province, the local civil affairs authority targeted the na

hina takes big step in artemisinin resistance

Nobel Prize winner Tu Youyou’s team on Monday announced major scientific breakthroughs in treatment of artemisinin resistance.

Sweet wormwood was used in ancient Chinese therapy to treat various illnesses, including fevers typical of mala

ria. Nearly five decades ago, Chinese scientists, including Tu, identified its active ingredient, artemisinin.

In 2005, the WHO recommended Artemisinin-based Combin

ation Therapies as the most effective malaria treatment available.

However, the World Malaria Report 2018 published by the World Health Organiza

tion said that after an unprecedented period of success in global malaria control, progress has stalled. Art

emisinin resistance and partner drug resistance has been reported in Greater Mekong subregion.

Good trade ties vital at state level in US trade relatio

US states continue to value trade relations with China, despite ongoing tensions at the i

nternational level, and they hope tensions will be resolved through negotiations.

“I’m very optimistic on the China-US trade relationship,” Cyrus Habib, lieutenant governor of Washington, said in an inter

view with China Daily as he was 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 state’s expor

ts 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 i

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

Footwear makers: cut and run from tariffsrtment at the

US sneaker giant Nike and fancy shoemaker Allen Edmonds have joined the chorus of busines

s groups calling for the White House to hit the brakes on its move to raise duties on Chinese shoes an

d other products, further challenging President Donald Trump’s claim that China is paying for the tariffs.

A week after Trump threatened to impose tariffs on the remaining $300 billion of goods imported from Chi

na, more than 100 American shoe and sneaker companies, brands and retailers signed an open letter to the president saying the p

olicy “would be catastrophic” for consumers, businesses and the US economy.

“Your proposal to add tariffs on all imports from China is ask

ing the American consumer to foot the bill,” said the letter, dated on Monday and signed by

the companies. It was posted on the website of the Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA).

Wang said the Sino-US trade talks have made important

and substantive progress thanks to efforts from both sides. Meanwhile the talks face some serious problems which need to be resolved.

The top diplomat said that as long as the negotiations meet the general direction of China’s reform an

d opening-up policy, adhere to China’s basic needs about high-quality development and serve the com

mon interests of the Chinese and US people, the negotiator teams from both sides could have the capability and w

isdom to settle their reasonable demands and eventually achieve a win-win agreement.

Wang said China insists on upholding national sovereignty, safeguarding the inter

ests of its people and defending national honor when negotiating with any country.

According to the General Administration of Customs, trade between

China and the US in the first four months stood at 1.1 trillion yuan ($160 billion).

Chinese exporters have from 20 to 50 percent of the

 US market in other low-value-added markets, plus electrical machinery and equipment, mechanical

appliances, and iron and steel. In most other categories, China has less than 20 percent of the US market.

China also assembles and then exports a lot of phones, computers and other gadgets to the US. But, most of the profits and

wages go to Japanese or South Korean component producers or US-based designers. For example, China ma

kes less than $9 from each iPhone. The total price of a phone is ridiculously counted as a Chinese export to the US.

It’s a good thing that China is no longer a low-wage country. Most Chinese

are much better off than they were even 10 years ago. But it does mean that these lo

w-skilled, labor-intensive industries will be moving to less-developed nations. US tariffs on such products will only se

rve to hasten the transition to higher value-added industries that China has to make anyway.
