tinue to purchase China-made goods if there are no substitut

Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs hav

e been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.

US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, an

d rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the

Chinese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.

To eliminate bad outcomes from trade tensions, further opening-up in China’s services sec

tor, together with high-tech development supported by artificial intelligence, will help lift Chinese eco

nomic growth from 6.3 percent to around 7 percent by 2035, said Zhu Min, a former deputy managing director at the IMF.

The IMF report warned that the additional impact of the r

 recent and future tariffs will cut about 0.3 percent of global GDP in the short ter

m, with half stemming from negative effects on business and market confidence.

Failure to resolve the trade differences and further escalation in other areas, such as the auto

industry, which would cover several countries, “could further dent business and financial market se

ntiment, negatively impact emerging market bond spreads and currencies, and slow investment and trade“, the research said.

Experts urged the US government to stop its protectionism and proposed options for a resolution between the two countries.

Chen Wenling, chief economist of the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, said the US needs to correct moves that have

already added pressure to global economic prospects. Otherwise, it will “pay the price” for its protectionist behavior, she said.

People seem to find closure for a broken relationship by donating souvenir

s from former lover, Kang Shidong, owner of the museum, told Shanxi’s news portal sxrb

Besides closure, what surprises Kang is that some visitors fell in love after coming across each other at the museum. “As f

ar as I know, some have entered romantic relationships,” said Kang. “I’m happy to see that. The purpose of estab

lishing such a museum is for people to say goodbye to their old relationship and stride into a new one.”

In a large-scale randomized clinical study over a period

 of eight years, Ma found Chinese patients with advanced nasopharyngeal cancer suffered more side

effects than benefits from the additional chemotherapy, which cost about 13,400 yuan ($2,000) per patient.

The findings, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, drew the attention of

Western experts, and the United States and Europe revised their treatment guidelines.

More recently, Ma added a new drug to the original dual drug ch

emotherapy regimen, and moved post-radiotherapy chemotherapy to pre-radiotherapy.

In another clinical study of 480 cases, Ma and his team found th

at this regimen increased the five-year survival rate of patients by 8 percent.

The nasopharynx is in the upper part of the pharynx behind the nose, connecting the nostr

ils and throat. The location makes it hard for doctors to operate, so radiotherapy is the first choice

But if the stock-image platform doesn’t get authoriza

ion but still asks for compensation by resorting to litigation, I think such behavior may be an alleged fraud,” he said.

The core of the problem lies in whether stock-image providers get authorization from copyright owners, he added.

Zhao Zhanling, a legal researcher who specializes in intellectual p

roperty cases at the China University of Political Science and Law, agreed, but said copyri

ght owners and institutes given copyright authorization should respect this right and not abuse it for gain.

He said stock-image companies need to make authorization a priority in their opera

tions and pay more effort to finding a balance between commercial interest and public interest.

The litigation right that is to safeguard copyrights must not be abused, he added.
