HomeBusinessEmphasis on US exports, trade secrets in China trade deal Jan. 17, 2020 at 11:00 amBusinessGovernmentNewsPoliticsEmphasis on US exports, trade secrets in China trade dealAssociated Press1 year agochinadealtradeUS exports The United States and China reached a trade deal Wednesday that eases tensions between the world’s two biggest economies, offers massive export opportunities for U.S. farms and factories, and promises to do more to protect American trade secrets.Still, the Phase 1 agreement leaves unresolved Washington’s fundamental differences with Beijing, which is relying on massive government intervention in the economy to turn China into a technological power.President Donald Trump is wanting to show progress on an issue that he has made a hallmark of his presidency and hopes to use in his reelection campaign this year. Wednesday’s signing ceremony at the White House gave him the chance to do that just hours before the House voted to send articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial.Trump promoted the trade signing as a way of delivering economic justice for American workers he claims have been betrayed by past administrations and their trade policies.“We mark more than just an agreement. We mark a sea change in international trade,” Trump declared during a rambling ceremony in which he made references to former FBI Director James Comey, the impeachment proceedings and a possible visit to Mount Rushmore on July Fourth for a fireworks display.The Chinese delegation also praised the pact. Chinese leader Xi Jinping said in a letter to Trump that the first-phase deal was “good for China, for the U.S. and for the whole world.” He said it also showed the two countries had the ability to “act on the basis of equality and mutual respect.” The letter was read by Beijing’s chief negotiator, Vice Premier Liu He.Some of the president’s Democratic critics were unimpressed.“True to form, Trump is getting precious little in return for the significant pain and uncertainty he has imposed on our economy, farmers, and workers,” said former Vice President Joe Biden, one of the Democrats hoping to replace Trump.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement that “with the economy losing thousands of manufacturing jobs and Farm Country reeling from the damage caused by President Trump, Americans are left with nothing more than a showy television ceremony to try to hide the complete absence of concrete progress, transparency or accountability in this ‘phase one’ agreement.”The administration acknowledges the agreement leaves unresolved some U.S. complaints — most notably, the way the Chinese government subsidizes its companies. That was the concern voiced when Trump sparked a trade war by imposing tariffs on Chinese imports in July 2018.“The Phase 1 deal contains meaningful commitments but by no means lives up to the initial objectives of the administration,’’ said Wendy Cutler, a former U.S. trade negotiator who is now vice president at the Asia Society Policy Institute. Further Chinese concessions would force Bejing to make major changes in its state-dominated economic model, which means “the prospects for a timely conclusion are remote,’’ she said.The agreement leaves in place tariffs on about $360 billion in Chinese imports, leverage the administration hopes will generate future concessions.U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said work on follow-up negotiations will hinge on how China fulfills the commitments it made in the initial phase.“We have to make sure this is implemented properly,” Lighthizer said. “This is the first agreement like this of its kind and we have to make sure that it works.”The agreement is intended to ease some U.S. economic sanctions on China while Beijing is to step up purchases of American farm products and other goods. Trump cited beef, pork, poultry, seafood, rice and dairy products as examples.U.S. trade officials said the agreement would end a long-standing practice of China pressuring foreign companies to transfer technology to Chinese companies as a condition for obtaining market access. Lighthizer said China has also agreed to combat patent theft and counterfeit products, which would include forfeiting machinery used for making counterfeit products.The 86-page agreement makes it easier to bring criminal cases in China against those accused of stealing trade secrets. It includes provisions designed to stop Chinese government officials from using administrative and regulatory procedures to ferret out foreign companies’ trade secrets and allowing that information to get into the hands of Chinese competitors.The deal requires China to come up with procedures to “permit effective and expeditious action’’ to take down websites that sell pirated goods. China also must make it possible for e-commerce sites to lose their licenses for “repeated failures to curb the sale of counterfeit or pirated goods.’’China is required to increase its purchases of U.S. manufactured, energy and farm products and services by a combined $200 billion this year and next. The arrangement means that China is supposed to buy $40 billion in U.S. farm exports. That would be a windfall for Trump supporters in rural America but an ambitious goal considering that China has never bought more than $26 billion in U.S. agricultural products in a year.“It’s a strong first step,” said Jeremie Waterman, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s vice president for Greater China. “It begins the process of addressing some of the structural concerns, but there’s a lot of work left to do. The meat, the core of (U.S. complaints about China’s aggressive tech policies) has not yet been addressed. Obviously, that’s going to have to wait until Phase 2.’’Most analysts say any meaningful resolution of the main U.S. allegation — that Beijing uses predatory tactics in its drive to supplant America’s technological supremacy — could require years of contentious talks. Skeptics say a satisfactory resolution may be next to impossible given China’s ambitions to become the global leader in such advanced technologies as driverless cars and artificial intelligence.The U.S. has dropped plans to impose tariffs on an additional $160 billion in Chinese imports, and it cut in half, to 7.5%, existing tariffs on $110 billion of good from China.Derek Scissors, China specialist at the American Enterprise Institute, said the trade war has already delivered a benefit for Trump, even if it hasn’t forced Beijing to make major changes to its economic policy: Trump’s tariffs have reduced Chinese exports to the United States and narrowed America’s trade deficit with China.So far this year, the U.S. deficit with China in the trade of goods has declined by 16%, or $62 billion, to $321 billion compared with a year earlier. The deficit will narrow further if Beijing lives up to its pledges to buy dramatically more American imports.AP Business Writer Joe McDonald in Beijing and Associated Press writer Darlene Superville contributed to this report.Tags :chinadealtradeUS exportsshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentLaughing Matters – Cheaters Always Prosper…Until They Get CaughtBeach Water Use AdvisoryYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor17 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press17 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press17 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson17 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter17 hours ago

It was a response to years of government pressure to try and force the separation of Telecom Italia’s fixed network to aid competition in the country.In Genish’s strategy, NetCo would be operated as an independent entity, but be fully owned by Telecom Italia.During its campaign to oust the operator’s previous board, Elliott Management said official NetCo strategy did not go far enough and a stake in the business should be sold off.Having won the savage battle for the boardroom, the new directors publicly backed Genish’s plan before eventually sacking the executive. However, the company’s present strategy, including retaining full control of NetCo, remains official policy.Agcom’s decision will now go to a 45-day public consultation.

HAMBURG, Germany – Richard McEvoy won his first European Tour title at the age of 39 after a dramatic finish to the European Open in Hamburg on Sunday. The Englishman holed a 20-foot putt for birdie on the last hole to secure a one-shot victory ahead of Renato Paratore, Christofer Blomstrand and German amateur Allen John. McEvoy shot a final-round 1-over 73 for an 11-under 277 at Green Eagle Golf Courses. He won on his 285th European Tour appearance, 17 years after making his debut on the tour and just seven days after triumphing on the developmental European Challenge Tour. ”It’s incredible. I’ve waited a long time, 17 years as a pro on and off the Tour, from Challenge Tour to European Tour,” McEvoy said. Local amateur John produced a final-round 67 to creep up the leaderboard, while Blomstrand’s birdie on the 18th was enough to seal his share of second place. Full-field scores from the Porsche European Open McEvoy had started the final day in a share of the lead with Bryson DeChambeau but successive bogeys late in his round saw the American fall out of contention. DeChambeau (78) twice landed in the water on the final hole, with his triple bogey-8 dropping him to a share of 13th place, a stroke behind Masters champion Patrick Reed, who ended tied for ninth after a 4-over 76. Paratore was closest to forcing a playoff after a superb lay-up on the 18th led to the Italian narrowly missing an eagle chance. McEvoy became the first player this season to win on the Challenge Tour and European Tour in successive weeks after his triumph at the Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge last week.

We re-emphasised our concerns over the lack of cleaning staff following the publication of a highly critical HIQA report earlier this year. These concerns were ignored.”He added: “The result of this ballot on industrial action reflects the strong commitment of our members to fight the creeping privatisation of services in the hospital. The attempt by management to outsource the cleaning of a public hospital to private ‘for profit’ contractors will not be accepted.” Twitter Lárionad Acmhainní Nádúrtha CTR to take part in new research project Facebook Google+ Pinterest Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal Homepage BannerNews

Greece Odyssey’s Jaden Hartsfield drives baseline during a recent game. (Photo: DON SCANZAROLI)Second weekly installment taking a look at the student-athletes over the last seven days (December 3-9) who stood out while yours truly was in attendance. Worth noting, I was found at Al Masino Court on Friday night and not Rush-Henrietta. Therefore I did not see Tah’jae Hill’s 41-point performance.Michael Harrington 6-foot-3 Sr. G Pittsford-Mendon (Monroe County Division III) – Outside threat who blends an accurate scoring touch with the ability to create opportunities for teammates, quick release, comfortable in catch-and-shoot situations but can also put the ball to floor, effective and economic use of the dribble to create space, sees the floor well; responsible rebounder who makes contact early while the ball is in flight and has the ability to stay with the man; disciplined defender, moves well on the flight of the ball and takes away driving angles, rotates well into help side.Jaden Hartsfield 6-foot-2 Jr. G/F Greece Odyssey (Monroe County Division IV) – Blossoming into one of Section V’s hidden gems, has the nickname of “Sticks” because of his lanky frame, he knows how to use this build to his advantage, has to be defended beyond the 3-point arc, but smaller guards struggle to create any level of interference for him, he easily sees over smaller players and uses his wingspan to create an elevated release point, not afraid to put the ball to floor he keeps defenders in check with a smooth touch on floaters, with all that mind it is easy to overlook his ability move without the ball, he understands how to create and use angles to gain an advantage on opposing defenders; patient defender who will jump a passing lane when it appropriate.Kobe Long 6-foot-1 Jr. G McQuaid Jesuit (RCAC) – A returner to the Starting Five mix, has made a relatively seamless transition from off guard to primary ball handler without any apparent drop off in scoring, smooth and agile he plays the game at his speed with an impressive level of calmness, adept passer who understands the importance of giving the ball to a teammate where he can score, some dish off the ball as a last resort to avoid a turnover, this is not a concern with Long, a couple of years ago it could have been suggested that while playing in a lineup with the likes of Thomas Jones and Isaiah Stewart (7-8 games) as well as Anthony Iglesia, Long was thriving as the fourth or fifth option on the floor, that is no longer the case, he has to be defended beyond the 3-point arc and off the dribble; plays defense with sound instincts, shoots passing lanes well and sees one play ahead.Kai McCullough 6-foot-1 Fr. F East (RCAC) – Rugged interior performer who plays until the whistle, sure hands with the ability to score on either side of the basket, bounces off contact, fearless, stays within himself on the court, does not need the ball to work hard; active rebounder, ball-getter who wards off opponents, effectively feeds the outlet man; active feet on defense, can guard bigger and more experienced players in the post, at the same time can step out on the perimeter and cover smaller players.Terrence Reid 6-foot Sr. F Eastridge (Monroe County Division IV) – Solid post player who is comfortable with his back-to-the basket, at the same time he can catch at the high post and use the dribble to create a lane, smooth scoring touch, can finish with other hand around the rim; responsible defender who gets position on the opponent before the ball is passed, keeps his feet in motion; tireless rebounder with strong hands, easily holds position on the block.

Now Time has come to research and develop more about antivirus and vaccine to fight against these pandemics like SARS,COVID-19 etc . since it is invisible war which will smash out the human beings from the world within very short period of time . It is like a third world war which could finish the humankind . This virus may be directly or indirectly man-made. so we should not blame to each other for this outbreak and As one humankind of the world We should fight against this third invisible world war . In this world war all the defence , military , nuclear bombs , fighter jets and planes etc become useless in front of virus. Because this virus does not know which country is more powerful in military and defence sector .it can attack anybody . so we should invest more in health research and development rather than in military and defence . Because without existence of human beings all the economy , military , polity, diplomacy and other business sectors are worthless .
