In 2015, World Animal Protection developed an initiati

ive, calling for animal-friendly tours and for tour operators worldwide to keep wild animals in

the wild where they belong. It gained support from many travel agencies. By the end of last year, mo

re than 200 companies have removed the wildlife-related entertainment services, such as elephant rides.

Although some travelers are still not fully aware of the concept of animal-friendly tra

roadcom will not supply Huawei until further notice, the report said.

However, blocking components to Huawei could also disrupt the businesses of American ch

ip heavyweights like Micron Technology and slow down the rollout of 5G wireless networks, Blo

omberg said, which in turn could hurt US companies that rely on the Chinese market.

In a Reuters report on Sunday, it said that Google has also suspended business with Huawei requiring the transfer of hard

ware, software and technical services, except those with open-source licenses publicly available.

Google China replied via email that the company is “complying with the order and reviewing the implications”, The Beijing News said.

The bicycle industry has found a driving force for new pro

 profits in producing electric bicycles, exploring niche markets, an

d improving intelligent and network connecting levels, Economic Daily reported Monday.

tariff hike against China: Intl responseses on Friday

tariff hike against China: Intl responseses on Friday

The United States on Friday raised tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent.

Here is a collection of comments on the tariff hike from analysts and business professionals from around the world.

Rene Pastor, foreign editor, China Daily

Global trade is not a zero-sum game of who gets the most benefits. The decision by President Donald Trump to up the ante in a tra

de dispute by slapping tariffs invites retaliation, as China has threatened to do, and damages a global tra

ding system that in all honesty has lifted all boats in the decades following World War II.

Countries should resist the temptation to treat global trade as purely the aren

a of winners and losers. The idea is to keep talking with the full knowledge that any co

untry, any trading power, will win some and lose some in those negotiations. The consequences and less

ons of history are clear when trade degenerates into a winner-take-all mentality, as was the case during the tim

e of the Great Depression in the 1920s. Everybody lost. We just cannot afford a repeat of that episode in our history.

Lyft ended down 6.9% on Friday, and is 28 percent below its IPO price.

Still, the world’s largest ride-hailing company appeared to ge

nerate more interest from mom-and-pop investors than Lyft. Retail investors at TD Am

eritrade executed more trades in the first ten minutes of Uber’s debut than in Lyft’s first 2-1/2 hours.

Uber had already lowered its valuation expectations twice in the last two months to address investor concerns over its mounting losses.

While early-stage Uber investors such as Benchmark, Menlo Ventures, First Round

Capital and Lowercase Capital made a killing in the IPO, some late-stage backers did not fare as well
