The department said it had decided to end its cooperation with the Confucius Institute p

上海夜生活rogram at the end of the 2019 school year, which would terminate the Confucius Classroo

Instead, the NSW Department of Education will invest A$1.2 million ($810,000) to con上海夜生活

tinue teaching the Chinese language in the 13 schools, it said, adding that 15 per

cent of the pupils learning Chinese in NSW public schools were doing so in Confucius Classrooms.

上海夜生活女神会所The Confucius Institute Headquarters, which is bas

ed in Beijing, said the program was established in the spirit of m

utual respect, friendly consultation, equality and reciprocity. It also said the cooper

The program had made an important contribution to bilat

“We noticed that the NSW Education Department

上海夜生活said it will continue to strengthen Chinese-language education, and we ho

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Friday that the NSW side had not consult

The Confucius Institute program was established by the NSW Department of Education and Jiang上海夜生活女神会所

su Provincial Education Department in 2012 at the request by the NSW side, Geng said.

“We hope the Australian side will respect their Chinese partn

China firmly opposes the United States’ new threat to impose additional tariffs on about $550 billion

In a brief statement, the ministry said the US act is unilateral, trade protectionism, and using maximum pressure.

It violates the consensus reached between the top leaders of the two co上海夜生活女神会所

untries, severely undermines the multilateral trading system and normal internat

ional trade order, and Washington will eat the bitter fruits of its own action, the ministry said.

“Such unilateral and bullying acts of trade protectionism and extreme pressure ru上海夜生活

n counter to the consensus of the heads of state of China and the United States, and run

counter to the principles of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit,” the spokesperson said.上海夜生活女神会所

The ministry urged Washington to immediately stop its wrongful deeds, otherwise it will “bear all the consequences.”

The ministry warned the US administration not to misj

Lee admits the recent chaos in Hong Kong has negatively affected publishing th

This time, 66 Hong Kong companies brought over 2,000 books and other works. One feature of their pavilion is a cre上海夜生活

“It seems STEM books are quite popular in the world now, and we want to follow that trend,” Lee said.

上海夜生活女神会所The pavilion also contains an artistic and cultural zone exhibiting some Cantonese books.

“I hope we will bring more Chinese mainland writers and books to Hong Kong, and vice versa,” Lee said.

Consuls general from China, India, Japan and South Korea discuss Trump’s impact on trade

上海夜生活品茶微信The Trump administration’s “America First” policy was scrutinized by the c

onsuls general of India, Japan, South Korea and China at an Asia Society seminar.

The US, which is the largest trading partner of each of the four countries, has major trade disputes with all of them.上海夜生活

The Asia Society Northern California in San Francisco hosted the seminar on Wednesday.

上海夜生活品茶微信In his presidential campaign of 2016, Donald Trump emphasized “America First”. Trump explained then that what he m

eant was that his administration would prevent other nations from taking advantage of the United States.

Since taking office, Trump has advocated the use of tariffs in the global trad上海夜生活

ing system. The Trump administration also has withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Pa

rtnership (TPP) and renegotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)

上海夜生活品茶微信with Mexico and Canada, and the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS) with South Korea.

The US revoked preferential trade status for India on June 5. Though China is atop his agenda wit

h the current trade dispute between the two countries, Trump is also highly critical of Japan’s trade policies.上海夜生活

The biggest concern of businesspeople in the Asia-Pacific region is unpredictability, Japanese Consul Ge

上海夜生活品茶微信neral in San Francisco Tomochika Uyama said at the forum. He said he hoped the US would go back to the TPP.

From India’s perspective, the “America First” policy would be “something danger

ous” if it were an “isolation policy”, said Indian Consul General in San Francisco Sanjay Panda.上海夜生活

“In today’s world, you can’t have isolation. You have to work toget

ritain’s Conservative Party leadership contest frontrunner Boris Johnson has backtracked on his prev

上海夜生活ious comments made on Brexit negotiations, saying there is only a “millio

n-to-one” chance that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal.

Just a day after he stoked concern by promising in a radio interview to leave the EU on Oct 31 “come wh

at may, do or die” with a no-deal Brexit, Johnson stated he did not believe that was where Britain would “end up”.

In a Conservative party hustings on Wednesday evening, Johnson said: “It’s absolutely vital that we prepare for a no-deal outcome if we’re going to get the deal that we need.

“上海夜生活女神会所I don’t think that’s where we’re going to end up — I think it’s a million to one against — but it’s vital that we prepare.”

The EU has said it will not return to Prime Minister Theresa May’s withdrawal deal, rejected three

times by UK Parliament, and experts are sceptical a new prime minister can secure any changes to the

controversial Northern Ireland backstop hated by Eurosceptic MPs by the end of October.

Both men vying to be the next prime minster, Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, have said they would back a no-

deal Brexit departure from the EU, if a new withdrawal agreement with Brussels couldn’t be reached.上海夜生活女神会所

Johnson said there was a new feeling of “common sense breaking out” among members of Parliament

in favor of passing a deal. He played down the idea that he would prorogue – or susp

end – Parliament in order to secure a departure on Oct 31, but did not entirely rule it out.

上海夜生活女神会所The exhibition, co-hosted by the Cervantes Institute and the Picasso Museum

in Malaga, where the artist was born, will move to Shanghai after running in Beijing.

In 1972, David Bowie gave birth to arguably his most famous alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust-an androgynous alien with spiky tangerine h

air, theatrical makeup and brightly-colored glam rock attire. An eponymous ode to the character appears on

Bowie’s album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, which was released that year.

With the album, Bowie redefined glam rock and spent 18 months in the

years 1972 and 1973 touring the United Kingdom, North America and Japan.

During the tour, Bowie invited a Cambridge University graduate, M

ick Rock, to be his personal photographer. They first met backstage in March 1972.

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).
