US toy prices may rise d上海后花园e to additional tariff

Experts warn it would damage small companies as consumers pay for the hit

上海后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on

an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shi上海后花园女神会所

pping month, when many Chinese toy manufacturers send their products to the United States.

上海后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian

ce on manufacturing in China, many will still make the US consumer pay more if the tariffs hit.

“Hasbro will have no choice but to pass along the increased costs to our US custo上海后花园

mers,” said Brian Goldner, CEO of toy company Hasbro. He said the Pawtucket, Rhode Islandbased company, the

上海后花园女神会所maker of popular products such as Monopoly and GI Joe, was working to reduce its reliance on manufacturers in Chi

na, but he also said it has built up extra inventory, incurring additional storage costs, as it braces for tariffs.

It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton We上海后花园

iser, a senior research analyst at financial services firm D.A. Davidson Companies, told China Daily.

上海后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix

and sourcing options. Many also will continue to move manufacturing from China to countries like Vietnam.

“They will do as much as they can to mitigate or offset the impact of the tariffs through all the different measures, but it’s un上海后花园

certain now to what extent they will be able to either partially or fully offset the impact,” Weiser said.

上海后花园女神会所”The good news is that the tariff is only 10 percent, so a product-price increase of 5 percent is neede

d to keep gross profit dollars unchanged. However, the gross margin would decline,” she said.

The war of words and 上海后花园ing between Washingt

gton and Moscow over the INF Treaty, the first such agreement to reduce the two countries’ nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, has left the treaty hanging in limbo.

上海后花园女神会所It goes without saying that the exit of both signatories from the tre

aty makes the future of other such nuclear agreements uncertain. To begin with, the stabili

ty of the world order and international security could be undermined. The ruse to scrap the INF Trea上海后花园

ty is the US’ latest one in a series moves to nullify many international agreements and organizations since the incumbent US dispensation assumed offi

上海后花园女神会所ce in January 2017. The US’ unilateral withdrawal from a number of multilateral agreements and me

chanisms, most of which were created due to its own efforts, has put the world order based on rules under extreme pressure.

Besides, the conflict between the US and Russia is preventing them from improving上海后花园

bilateral relations. The actions of the US and Russia have further worsened their relations following their face

上海后花园女神会所off over the Ukraine crisis and the Syrian civil war, and led to multiple large-scale military exercises by both side

s in the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea in an apparent show of strength. Their withdrawal from the INF Treaty means the

ir tactical conflict has deteriorated into a strategic conflict, which has further jeopardized bilateral relations.上海后花园

Worse, the two countries’ moves could abort the international disarma

上海后花园女神会所ment process, because with the annulment of the INF Treaty, the US and Russia could dev

elop new intermediate-and short-range missiles without constraints, which in turn could trigger a new global arms race.

Also, the US’ withdrawal from the INF Treaty could set off a chain reaction, as it is almost certain that Washington will now d上海后花园女神会所

eploy intermediate-range missiles in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, heightening regional tensions and fuelli

上海后花园ng an arms race and geopolitical competition among major powers. The new arms race, which could prompt major

powers to build new types of smart weapons, would pose a severe threat to international peace and security.What is especi

ally surprising is that some Western observers want to drag China into the discussions on certain intern上海后花园

ational issues regardless of whether it is a party to such issues. Regarding the INF Treaty, which has play

上海后花园女神会所ed an important role in improving international relations, promoting nuclear disarmament, even safeguarding glo

bal strategic balance and stability, and therefore remains very much relevant and sig

nificant even today, China has made clear that it is opposed to not only the US’ unilateral w

ithdrawal from the treaty but also the West’s efforts to make it part of a new nuclear treaty.

desert rice’ shows adv上海后花园t of Chinese agricultur

Rice from China has been successfully planted in the deserts of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a

nd its yield has hit a record high, leading to an agricultural breakthrough in the city.上海后花园品茶微信

The seawater rice yield reached 629 kilograms per mu (0.06 hectare), a result observed by experts from China and Dubai on J

u上海后花园ne 6. This yield is on par with the advanced level of international rice planting in desert areas and saline-alkali soil.

The sea rice project, launched by the Wuhan Haidao International Agricultural Development Co of Hubei province last O

ctober, broke the record for Dubai desert rice planting in terms of planting area and rice yield. This achi上海后花园

evement was praised by the ruler of Dubai and the Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai.

上海后花园Invited by Dubai, experts from the company provided all te

chnological services for seawater rice planting in Dubai’s deserts and deve

loped the proprietary “Haidao 86” rice species. They began their work in November.上海后花园品茶微信

Dubai has quite special agricultural, ecological and climate conditi

上海后花园ons. In other words, disadvantages — including low temperatures at night for the seeding stage

, high temperatures and dry winds in the earing period and low rainfall. The favorable period for rice growth is also quite

short. Any small mistake in cultivation may lead to failure, the Wuhan company said.上海后花园品茶微信

Barren soil, insects, bird strikes and shortage of water

have been major hindrances for rice planting in Dubai deserts, the上海后花园

company said, adding pesticides and inorganic nitrogenous fertilizers were not allowed in the project area.

上海后花园品茶微信In recent years, many domestic and international companies tried to plant rice in Dubai wi

thout satisfying results due to existing obstacles, said company investor Xie Xiaoqing.

But the experts finally succeeded by applying creative s上海后花园

eeding methods, scientific water management and strict growth process control.

The success of the project has presented the technological progress of Chinese agric上海后花园品茶微信

ulture to the world and benefited people across the globe, and will help in prom

oting both international cooperation and the sharing of agricultural technology, she added.

ompanies should explore上海后花园 ‘dark’ datastry insid

More efforts are needed from Chinese companies to explore the potentia

上海后花园l of massive data as mounting firms globally own “dark data” and very few know how to u

上海后花园anager of security markets at Splunk, delivers a speech during the three-day Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “d

ark data”, which refers to all the unknown and untapped data generated by an org

anization’s s上海后花园女神会所ystems, devices and interactions”, said Song Haiyan, senior vice-president and general manager of se

curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.

“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opport上海后花园

unities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.

Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect da上海后花园女神会所

ta but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.

In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial intell

上海后花园igence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.

Splunk, founded in 2003, is a Nasdaq-listed company. Its total revenues hit $425 milli上海后花园女神会所

on for its fiscal first quarter ending April 30 this year, which was a 36 percent increase year-on-year.

“I am glad to see that here in China, companies are putting the use of AI into a higher-than-ever role in their bu

sinesses,” she said, adding that she was confident about business growth in the country.

The move marks an accelerated push by China to app

o apply上海后花园品茶微信 5G. Its previous plan was to commercialize the technology in 2020.

“The 5G licensing will help deepen structural reform in the telec

om industry, improve the level of social and economic informatization and foster seve

ral leading companies with global competitiveness,” said China Mobile Chairman Yang Jie.

China Mobile claimed its 5G services will be available in more than 40 cities by the end of September.

China Telecom also said in a statement that the 5G licensing will be a key step to build the country into a cyber power. It is also c

onducive to gaining a competitive edge in the telecom sector, which will help drive technological innovation, e

mbrace industrial upgrading as well as boost high-quality economic growth, the company said.

China Unicom noted it will continue welcoming foreign companies to participate in domestic 5G construction.

China launched an investigation into FedEx because the United States express delivery service provider allegedly failed to

deliver parcels to designated addresses, a violation of Chinese postal regulations, a senior official said, adding that

all foreign delivery companies should obey local regulations when operating in China.

The State Post Bureau did not disclose how many parcels were allegedly rerouted, and said it recently received comp

laints from an unspecified number of FedEx clients saying the company rerouted their parcels to destinations other

than the designated addresses without informing them or asking for permission.

Nobody likes competition against themselves. So, it mu

st be admitted that China’s transition to a high-tech, high-value-added economy will come as

a shock to many companies around the world. The US economy, which has about 7 percent of G

DP in high-tech manufacturing, will be lightly affected by this change.

On the other hand, advanced manufacturing contributes ar

ound 20 percent of GDP in South Korea, Japan, Germ

any and a few smaller European countries. They will be much more directly affected.

China’s transition over the next 10 years will not be pai

nless for its companies or for foreign competitors. But, refo

m and opening-up policies that create more competitive companies and markets are t

he only way to achieve a richer and more productive world economy in the long term.

The success case of Entertainment One in defending th

Last year, the Hangzhou Internet Court ruled in favor of Entertainment On

e which identified the infringement of the Peppa Pig copyright by two Chinese comp

anies. These companies were subsequently ordered to cease production and sales of their toy kitchen sets

that featured the image of Peppa Pig. They were also ordered to pay a combined 150,000 yuan ($22,150) in fines.

“As we are still a relatively new brand in China, the biggest achievem

ent is to have made such an impact on piracy in such a short space of time,” Pfeiffer said.

First broadcast in the UK in 2004 and formally introduced in China

in 2015, the cartoon chronicles the adventures of Peppa, her family and friends. The latest trai

ler for the theatrical release of the Peppa Pig generated more than 1.5 billion views in China, according to company stat

istics. Its popularity has generated a raft of toys, clothes and other spin-off products. Counterfeits are also rife.

In addition, the institute will invite foreign experts

to give lectures to the students to provide access to new developments in the international space sector.

“We want to make sure that they will be able to design satellites when they complete their study here and go back to their countries,” Cui said.

He added that compared with their Chinese peers, the foreign

students are more active in class and are better at asking questions and sharing their thoughts.

The foreign students will choose either remote sensing or comm

unications satellites as the topic for individual research at the Shenzhou Institute, Cui s

aid, adding that their choice will depend on what they will do in their homeland after the program.

Wang Jie, the mentor of the eight-student class, said that in addition to professional knowledge

and on-site tours, the institute also arranges lectures on Chinese language and culture for the foreign s

tudents and takes them to such historical sites as the Forbidden City and Summer Palace.
