tariffs by the US on solar imports, as well as the country’s anti

dumping and anti-subsidy measures, have largely reduced China’s export to the country.

Photovoltaic modules export to India also slumped 24.4 percent to 1.81 GW in the first quarter, as the Indian government ordere

d that all photovoltaic modules for government and central public utilities projects should be 100 percent India-made.

China’s top five photovoltaic modules exporters in value in the first quarter were Jinko Solar, J

A Solar, Trina Solar, Canadian Solar, and Longi, taking up 12.8, 8.6, 8.3, 7.4, and 6.7 percent, resp

ectively, of total export value. Export volume of the top 12 exporters took up 65 percent of total export, added the report.

The report projected that China’s photovoltaic modules capacity will furth

er expand 8.5 percent to 83 GW this year, with nearly 50 GW exported to the overseas market.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Suppor

t Mechanism for international users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

So far, 15 countries including Iran and Mongolia have registered as users of the mechanism.

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satel

lite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China

Meteorological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

Today’s lower-income countries already face a tough task in

 trying to emulate the impressive growth of developing economies before them. An underperformi

ng global economy, and rising national and international tensions, will make that task even harder. If th

e world is serious about reducing poverty further, it must pay far more attention to their progress.

he US has repeatedly threatened to impose tariffs on about $300 billion of Chinese ex

ports to the United States. China showed the greatest sincerity in the Sino-US trade

talks and refused wild demands by the US side, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Tuesday.

China has become the most popular investment destination for global companies, since the country launched its reform and opening-up policy, said Geng Shuang.

The companies will choose which countries to invest in, or which partners to coope

rate with based on their interests and market rules. No words can influence them, Geng said.

China welcomes foreign companies to increase investment in the country, and the country will continue gi

ving efforts to create a more stable, fair, transparent and predictable business environment for foreign investors, said Geng.

Roughly 20 years ago, when China’s admission to the

Roughly 20 years ago, when China’s admission to the

World Trade Organization was being negotiated, China’s economy was ti

ny as a portion of world GDP. It was clearly a poor, less-developed country that, except in a f

ew areas, was not able to compete with Western companies in high-value-added products.

As Alexander Hamilton, the first US Treasury secretary, argued, a developing country may need to p

rotect its “infant industries” from already established foreign competitors. This was the policy foll

owed by the US in the 19th century and by Western Europe, Japan, and South Korea in the years after World War II.

China is no longer a poor country. It can no longer compete by using low-wa

ge labor. Fortunately, it has now developed world-class companies that are incre

asingly developing new products and services that can compete successfully in many foreign markets.

China’s IPR protection efforts bear fruit for foreign enterprises

China’s constant improvement of intellectual property rights pro

tection is a huge boon for popular foreign IPs like Peppa Pig to ride the country’s consum

ption boom, according to an executive from the trademark’s owner Entertainment One UK Ltd.

“There has been a very positive trend in China,” said Tim Pfeiffer

, the company’s senior vice-president of business affairs. “Our cooperation with the China Trad

emark Office has been very encouraging and we are more than happy to cooperate further.”

Beijing’s efforts have shown that it is serious about enforcing IPR protection to safeguard justice an

d social stability. Chinese courts have resulted in a 42 percent surge in intellectual property r

ights cases in 2018, according to the work reports of the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Proc

uratorate that were submitted to the country’s annual national legislative session in March.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.
