ong’s rule of law, morals and ethics. They bring shame to Hong Kong, the statement said.

The guide, who has been working in Hong Kong for more than 20 years, said to his know亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦

He said his income was affected because a large number of tours had been canceled in recent months.

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦He said he was worried that the incident would harm Hong Kong’s image as a tourist d

The major stock indexe亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦Dow Jones Industrial

Average, Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 – closed up more than 1 percent each Tuesday.

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦After Monday’s selloff, the biggest of the year, Tuesday’s rebound of 312 points put the Dow at 26,023.

On Monday, the Dow lost 767.27 points, or 2.9 percent, after US President Donald Trump called China a currency manipulator.

“There is more uncertainty in the global environment,” Usha Haley, the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair in In亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦

ternational Business and a professor of management at Wichita State University, told China Daily. “It does not contribute t

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦女神会所o planning or investment in the global economy and doesn’t bene?t China or the US. We’re in uncharted territory.”

“Most investors and traders do not find meaningful the designation of currency manipulator and most belie

ve it is unlikely to foster successful negotiations,” Andrew Karolyi, a finance professor at Cornell University, told Ch亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦

ina Daily. “Fluctuations in the yuan continue to re?ect market supply and demand pressures and have for several y

ears. I would not rule out a US-China trade deal before the end of 2019 or early 2020. There are incentives in both co

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦女神会所untries to stabilize trade flows and ease the burden of trade policy uncertainty.”

But Trump may be able to use the currency-manipulation charge to his advantage, one expert said.

“Unfortunately, the declaration that China is a currency manipulator can be used by the pr亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦女神会所

esident as a reason to take further unilateral actions against China,” Steve Charles Kyle, an economics pr

ofessor at Cornell University, told China Daily. “It is clearly bad news for both the USA and China. The USA will see highe

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦r prices as tariffs take effect, and China will see fewer exports as the US buys less and also as production moves elsewhere.”

With equity markets roiled and supply chains disrupted, Goldman Sachs now ex

pects the Fed to cut interest rates by at least a quarter- point i女神会所n September and October.亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦

Trump has frequently called for more cuts in the federal funds rate, which has a target of 2-2.25 percent.

If in?ation is close to the Fed’s 2 percent target in December, Goldman Sachs believes rate cuts will stop.

Johnson had been widely expected to win ever since Theresa May, the nation’s outgoing prime minister, announced on May 24

For anyone interested in Spanish and the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-s

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦peaking world, the annual Spanish Day is a real feast that certainly cannot be missed.

As a traditional open day of the Beijing arm of the Cervantes Institute, a Spanish cultural center, the Spanish Day is celebrated to honor learners, lovers and promoters of Spanish, the world’s second most spoken native language.亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦

Held on June 22 this year, the event featured young soccer players and Spanish learners who staged a medley of sports and artistic performances.

Construction of the second 330-meter-tall tower for one of the world’s largest cable-stayed bridges was completed in East China’s Jiangsu province on Thursday.

亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦品茶微信The 11,072-meter-long Hutong Yangtze River Bridge, linking the cities of Nantong and Suzhou, is de

signed with a main span of 1,092 meters, making it the world’s first road-rail cable-stayed bridge with a span over 1,000 meters.

Ning Chaoxin, with the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co., Ltd (MBEC), the project’s contractor, said the two c亚博国际娱乐平台官方线路乌托邦品茶微信

able towers are the key force structure of the bridge. The longer the bridge spans, the higher the cable tower needs to be.

To ensure the shipping on China’s busiest waterway, the bridge is designed to have a longer span. About 73,000 cubic meters of concrete

and 11,000 tonnes of steel bars were used to build each tower, whose height is equivalent to a 110-storey skyscraper.

Ning said the huge construction volume is required so that the bridge can withstand

violent typhoons, magnitude-8 earthquakes and impacts from the collision of a 100,000-tonne ship.

The bridge will have a 6-lane expressway on the upper deck and four railway tracks on the lower deck.

The track laying on the bridge will start in January 2020, according to MBEC. The bridge is expected to ensure the river shipping on the Yangtze, while easing the roa

d and railway traffic pressure in the Yangtze River Delta region, China’s economic powerhouse.
