Conductor Yu Long chose Chinese composer Chen Qigang’s violin concerto, La Joie de la Sou

ffrance (The Joy of Suffering) to appear on his new album with the Shanghai Symphony Orc上海千花坊

hestra, Gateways. But Yu’s first encounter with Chen was not exactly harmonious.

上海千花坊Yu wanted to perform one of Chen’s compositional works during the

Beijing Music Festival, an annual classical music festival held in the capital, which Yu fou

nded in 1998 and of which he was artistic director from 1998 to 2018. However, Chen said no. Instead, the co

上海千花坊女神会所mposer floated the idea of having a concert where the repertoires were all written by him.

“Usually a concert featuring work written by one composer is held to commemorate them after death. It did not seem like a good i

dea to me back then,” recalls Yu. “However, after listening to Chen’s work, I changed my mind. The concert was s上海千花坊

uccessful and I told Chen immediately after the concert how touched I was by his music.”

上海千花坊女神会所On the latest album, entitled Gateways, the first recording of the Shanghai Sy

mphony Orchestra signed it signed to Deutsche Grammophon label in June 2018, Yu, the co

nductor and artistic director of the 140-year-old orchestra, selected two of Chen’s works to feature the album: the v

iolin concerto, La joie de la sufferance and Wu Xing (The Five Elements).上海千花坊女神会所

“When we discussed the programs for the orchestra’s first album with DG, we all agreed to tell Chinese stories through mu

上海千花坊sic. An important mission of the album is to bridge the gap between traditional Chinese culture and an in

ternational audience,” says Yu. “Chen’s work is frequently played worldwide and enjoyed by people from different c

ultures. He has a unique way of combining traditional Chinese philosophy with Western music. You can fee

l his incredible imagination in his music, therefore, it was among the first we chose.上海千花坊女神会所

Under the baton of Yu, the China Philharmonic performed Chen’

s music during the concert in 2002, including Wu Xing (The Five Elements) and Iris De

上海千花坊女神会所voilee, as well as a world premiere of Chen’s Reflet d’un Temps Disparu for erhu (a bowed two-string instrument) and

orchestra, which was adapted from the composer’s piece with the same title originally written for cello and orchestra.

Since then, Yu has led China’s symphony orchestras in performing Chen’s work worldwide.

The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult

Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所

ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo

reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra

de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所

An important player for global governance

The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm

上海千花坊Which is why, despite their continuing differences, Beijing and Washington should work together to make the upcoming Xi-Trump meeting a success.

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment

Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊

During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊

volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.

• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所

Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral

上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga

me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.

In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o

t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr

ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p

ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所

untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.

In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil

lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec

onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre

ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.

• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?

Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that

have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high

ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm

ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the

international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

Meanwhile, the law imposes heavier fines on produce

cers and sellers of defective vaccines. Those prod

ucing or selling fake vaccines shall face a fine of 15 to 50 times the value of the illicit product上海千花坊女神会所

s, while substandard vaccine makers or sellers face a fine of 10 to 30 times the value.

上海千花坊It also raises the threshold for fines, by stipulating that fake or substandard vaccines worth less than 500,000 yuan ($72,908) shall be calculated as 500,000 yuan.

Production and business operation will be suspended for rectification, and drug registration certificates or even pharmaceutical production licenses can be revoked, it said.上海千花坊女神会所

The tough punishments will exert positive impacts on the whole-process supervision of vaccines, said Jiao Hong, head of the National Medical Products Administration.

It will further enhance the quality of the country’s vaccines and boost the public’s confide上海千花坊

nce on vaccine safety, Jiao said at a press conference held after the five-day legislative session closed.

An autopsy will be carried out to help determine the reason behind the death of a 3-year-old girl from Lianyungang, Jiang

上海千花坊女神会所su province, who died after receiving a rabies vaccine, the local government was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

The girl, surnamed Zhang, was scratched by the pet dog of her classmate on April 26. After about 23 hours, she received a freeze-dried rabies vaccine at a local hosp

ital. But early April 28, the girl suffered a febrile convulsion and was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment. She died later that day.

The case has attracted attention from netizens who wondered whether the death could be caused by disqualified vaccines.上海千花坊女神会所

According to The Paper, a preliminary investigation by local health authorities showed

no recipients had adverse reactions after getting vaccines from the same batch between March 11 and April 30.

The investigation also showed the hospital where she was vaccinated and the doctor involv

ed are qualified, the vaccine used was within its validity period and there is no problem found in its

cold-chain transportation. As required by the girl’s family, the hospital has kept a vaccine of the same batch as a sample to check.

d China has always called for resolving trade tensions with the US through dia

US threats to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports cannot intimidate the Chinese people, Geng added.上海千花坊

Gao said China’s stance toward tariffs is clear, that the country has always opposed

unilaterally imposed tariffs. “The US trade bullying eventually hurts its own businesses and consumers,” he said.上海千花坊女神会所

The “unreliable entities” list-a blacklist of foreign parties that, for noncom

上海千花坊mercial reasons, harm the interests of Chinese companies, will be released soon,

Gao said. Companies that abide by Chinese law and the spirit of contracts have nothing to worry about, he said.

上海千花坊女神会所Zhou Mi, deputy director of the Institute of American and Oceania Studies of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Eco

nomic Cooperation, said it is necessary for China to push forward with the list of “unreliable entities,” and export restriction measures.

“These moves will bring about institutional improvement,” Zhou said. “They are

上海千花坊女神会所not meant to punish any company, but to guide all market entities to abide by the laws, regulations and commercial con

tracts. They can further level the playing field for both homegrown and foreign companies.”上海千花坊

Iranian Minister of Inform上海千花坊女神会所munications Techn

Iran over the past years, saying that “We have been facing cyber-terrorism for a long time.”

Earlier this month, the United States claimed Iran is responsible for an attack on two oil

tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The accusation was dismissed by the Islamic Republic.

Over the accusation, Zarif has said the United States immediately jumped to make allegat

Following the attack on the oil tankers, the Pentagon authorized the d

This was preceded by the deployment of the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group, bo
