To achieve the government target of bringing down the

the percentage of adult smokers to 20 percent by 2030, we have a lot of work to do,” he said.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba

cco industry, which is one of the biggest tax contributors to the government, he said.

Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,

national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.

“Only a few big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen h

ave strict tobacco control regulations and law enforcement, but in most areas in China suc

Trade between the two countries “made a major breakthr

rough” and exceeded $100 billion in 2018, and the two permanent members of the United Na

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral ties, which are said to have reached their best level in history.

Also, the attendance of the two countries’ leaders at each other’s intern

Reportedly, the United States administration is considering extending its attacks on

Chinese companies by blacklisting China’s largest surveillance equipment manufacturer Hikvision.

If so, Hikvision — which has about 20 percent of the global market share and has been the

leading player in the industry for seven consecutive years — will become the fourth Chinese company Wa

shington has targeted after the telecommunications companies ZTE and Huawei, and drone maker DJI.

Unlike the previous three companies, which the US administrat

He said through the SAR government’s efforts and a ratio

Hong Kong, the city will eventually reach a consensus and any doubts over the issue will be dispelled.

Han, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Comm

The SAR government proposed to amend its Fugitive Offenders Ordinance and Mutual Legal Assista

Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumption in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of eco

nomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a situa

tion, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.

To make up for the increasing savings gap, the US needs to introduce and use more foreign ca

pital, which will further enlarge the trade deficit. Therefore, the US cannot simultaneously maintain a high g

rowth rate, invest massively in infrastructure, reduce the trade deficit and restrict the inflow of foreign capital.

What is really questionable is that, despite its contempt for over-regulation of the economy, the US administration has been tryi

ng to impose regulations on international trade, even for its trade partners’ domestic economic management.
