China’s July CPI up 2.1%, PPI 4.6%

hina’s consumer price index (CPI), a major gauge of inflation, rose 2.1 percent from a year earlier in July, beating expectations of 1.9 percent and staying well within the government’s comfort range of below 3 percent.To get more china business news, you can visit shine news official website.

On a month-on-month basis, the CPI climbed 0.3 percent, according to the National Bureau of Statistics data on Thursday.

Non-food prices pushed the inflation rate higher, increasing 2.4 percent year-on-year and 0.3 percent month-on-month.

On a yearly basis, medical and health care prices ticked up 4.6 percent, transport and communications prices gained 3 percent, while costs of accommodation rose 2.4 percent. Educational, cultural and recreational prices increased 2.3 percent.

Food prices went up 0.5 percent year-on-year and edged up 0.1 percent month-on-month.

The price of pork, China’s staple meat, continued to slump in July, down 9.6 percent year-on-year, dragging down CPI growth by 0.24 percentage point. On a monthly basis, however, it registered a 2.9 percent increase, faster than the 1.1 percent rise in June.

The average year-on-year CPI growth for the January-July period stood at 2 percent, according to the NBS.

Analysts said the robust domestic consumption power and concentrated traveling demands stemming from the summer vacation resulted in such a monthly figure and they forecast that the yearly consumer and factory pricing index will be well under control, despite the escalating Sino-US trade friction and the widespread global trading tensions.

China’s producer price index (PPI), which measures costs for goods at the factory gate, rose 4.6 percent year-on-year in July, the NBS said.

The July growth slowed slightly compared with the 4.7 percent rise in June.

NBS statistician Sheng Guoqing said the carryover effect accounted for 3.9 percentage points in the PPI growth.

On a month-on-month basis, producer prices went up 0.1 percent in July, according to the NBS.Factory prices of production materials grew 6 percent year-on-year, contributing 4.5 percentage points to the overall PPI growth. Those of consumer goods climbed 0.6 percent year-on-year.

China calls itself rational amid trade battle with Trump

Launching an unusually personal attack on the U.S. President Donald Trump, Chinese state media lashed out at his trade policies on Monday.To get more china national news, you can visit shine news official website.

Engaged in a months-long trade war with the U.S., China seems to have started feeling the impact of tariffs.

With growth concerns roiling its financial markets, Beijing is engaged in various efforts to reassure investors about the health of the country’s economy.

On Monday, the Communist Party’s People’s Daily rebuked the U.S. and the Trump administration for escalating the trade conflict, and said thanks to U.S. policy, trade has become a “zero-sum game.”

While China’s strictly controlled news outlets have so far, refrained from specifically targeting Trump, on Monday, the overseas edition of the ruling Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper singled out Trump.

A commentary on the paper’s front page said that Trump was starring in his own “street fighter-style deceitful drama of extortion and intimidation.”

It further said that Trump’s desire for others to play along with his drama is “wishful thinking,” and argued that the U.S. had escalated trade friction with China and turned international trade into a “zero-sum game.”

The paper pointed out, “Governing a country is not like doing business,” and added that Trump’s actions imperilled the national credibility of the U.S.

Meanwhile, the Global Times, which is a nationalistic newspaper linked to the Chinese Communist Party and the country’s top tabloid issued a stern warning to the U.S., saying Beijing is prepared for a prolonged trade battle with the U.S. President.

Targeting top White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow in a column, the Global Times editorial board argued that the communist nation would eventually emerge victorious despite short-term pain.

The paper said, “China is bidding farewell to an era of growth heavily dependent on exports. In future, the U.S. economy will depend more on the Chinese market than the other way around, and that is a tendency about which all American elites are aware, including Mr. Kudlow.”

The Global Times wrote that China “has to defend its right to development, and we don’t fear sacrificing short-term interests.” It added, “China has time to fight to the end. Time will prove that the U.S. eventually makes a fool of itself.”

Further, the Global Times column stated that the Asian nation remains “key to the survival” of U.S. businesses and farmers and labeled the Trump administration’s trade agenda an effort to “crush China’s economic sovereignty.”

An editorial in the paper also said that China is staying calm and rational in the face of an escalating trade dispute with the U.S.

Referring to China’s announcement made on Friday, in which the country said it was preparing to retaliate in the trade war with new tariffs on about $60 billion worth of U.S. goods – Global Times argued, “China’s countermeasures are rational, and the emphasis can be found in their quantitative and qualitative aspects.”

In its op-ed, the Global Times said, “China’s recent counter-response is a restrained one, and the country is reserving the right and its ability to announce more against the U.S. China’s countermeasures aim to minimize the detrimental impact on domestic production and living standards. China is balancing short-term gain with long-term interests, risk versus opportunity, along with core and marginal interests.”

The country’s Ministry of Commerce had stated in an announcement on its website that China’s import taxes would range in rates from 5 percent to 25 percent.

Massive movie metropolis launched in Qingdao, China by billionaire

Wang Jianlin, the billionaire boss of China’s Dalian Wanda Group, said on Saturday he will turn the northern port city of Qingdao into a global film production hub as he launched a sprawling studio complex in a ceremony attended by hundreds.To get more qingdao news, you can visit shine news official website.

Covering an area equivalent to more than 200 football fields, the 400-acre Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis boasts the world’s biggest movie studio and has been touted as China’s answer to Hollywood.The $8 billion project, built partly on an artificial island, also includes hotels, a theme park and a yacht club.

Wang, whose group controls U.S. cinema chain AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc and U.S. studio Legendary Entertainment, promised generous subsidies for film makers but indicated a focus on China’s domestic film market.

“We will boost the Chinese movie industry development,” Wang said at the project’s opening ceremony.

“We will also turn Qingdao into a global hub for film,” he said, making no reference to Hollywood in his brief speech.

Hundreds of Chinese film industry representatives attended, as well as Hollywood executives and Chinese government officials that included the vice governor of Shandong province.A handful of U.S.-China film ventures have fallen apart due to cultural clashes. Financing deals – including Wanda’s $1 billion wooing of Hollywood studio Dick Clark Productions Inc – have also collapsed. Hollywood’s share of the Chinese market has lost ground to a surge of popular and sometimes patriotic-minded Chinese films.

So far, no major American movie has been produced at Oriental, which partially opened in 2016, except Legendary Entertainment’s Pacific Rim: Uprising and Great Wall.

Wanda said previously it aimed to host at least five to six Hollywood projects in its first year of full operation in 2018.Oriental Movie Metropolis is looking to appeal to domestic demand, and is in no rush to attract Hollywood A-listers, President Sun Hengqin told Reuters in an interview, in contrast to the company’s previous ambition to get major Hollywood producers to sign up.

All the 30 completed sound stages have been booked to make domestic movies, including a 3 billion yuan (US$474 million) fantasy movie based on a Chinese classic novel, Sun said.Sun added that production companies will not get subsidies unless they receive the green light from Chinese regulators, potentially a hurdle for foreign movie makers. China is known for its heavy-handedness in the entertainment industry and censors are tough.

“We are not making any commitment yet,” David Kornblum, vice president of international sales and marketing for the Asia-Pacific at Walt Disney Studios, told Reuters on the sidelines of Saturday’s launch.

China’s box office revenue is still swelling at double-digit rates after years of breakneck growth and, with Hollywood know-how and bigger budgets, Chinese movies are gaining momentum as they find ways to play on domestic themes and improve production quality.

Stocks Fall as Trade Tensions Weigh on Investors

Trade tensions weighed on Asian markets on Thursday, as benchmark stock indexes in the region fell after the Trump administration said it would consider more than doubling proposed tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.To get more chinese business news, you can visit shine news official website.

China’s main stock index dropped 2 percent. In Hong Kong, an index of China’s biggest listed companies, was down by more.

European stocks followed Asian markets, with indexes in Germany and Britain both opening lower.Hours before, President Trump instructed the United States trade representative to look into increasing tariffs on Chinese imports like fish, handbags and other goods to 25 percent from 10 percent, a significant step in a dispute that is beginning to take a toll on industries and consumers in both countries.If it had not been for the sideswipe on trade, markets would have been in much better shape this week,” Hirokazu Kabeya, chief global strategist at Daiwa Securities, told Reuters.

A final decision on the size and scope of the tariffs is not expected before September, but any tariffs on $200 billion worth of imports would come on top of the existing penalties on $34 billion worth of products and an additional $16 billion that are scheduled to go into effect soon.
China has vowed to respond to any trade measures in kind, and it has already imposed its own tariffs on $34 billion worth of American goods.

Also weighing on the markets in the region were rising United States bond yields. Yields on the 10-year Treasury note, which rise as prices fall, was near 3 percent, the highest level in weeks. Rising yields could make dollar-backed debt costlier to repay, especially for emerging markets.

Investors often rush to the safety of government bonds in times of market turmoil. But a stretch of strong economic data reports in the United States has recently encouraged investors. The Federal Reserve, as it held its benchmark interest rate steady, said Wednesday that economic growth was “solid.”

Why Businesses Should Pay Attention to China’s Government Inspections

On July 6, China announced a campaign to inspect local governments and departments, signaling the central government’s resolve to implement core policies.To get more china business news today, you can visit shine news official website.

The announcement, detailed in the State Council’s Circular about the Launch of Inspection Program for Departments and Local Governments, outlines the scope of the inspection campaign and how it will be carried out.

The inspection campaign will increase pressure on local governments to implement core policies, as they work to avoid censure from inspectors. For businesses, this may mean quickened introduction and enforcement of new regulations and policy initiatives.

Local governments and government departments will have to undergo comprehensive self-examinations to audit their policy implementation, and report their progress directly to the State Council, China’s cabinet.

Further, from late August, the State Council will deploy teams to conduct on-the-spot inspections of local governments.

The policies laid out in the circular are not new – they largely reflect the policies outlined at last October’s 19th Party Congress and the Two Sessions meetings held this March.

However, the inspection campaign signals that China is serious about carrying out its core policies and reducing implementation discrepancies between central and regional governments.

In fact, China has been active this year, releasing various laws and measures to bring these core policies into fruition.

For example, in February, China released the “No. 1 Central Document”, which presented a roadmap for rural revitalization all the way up to the year 2050.

Targeting the more immediate term, China released a three-year action plan to improve rural living, as well as various other guidelines, like encouraging the use of Big Data and the Internet of Things in rural areas.

Some policies have already been more widely implemented than others. For example, in support of the campaign to improve China’s business environment, by June 30, local governments adopted a “One Window, One Form” policy to simplify business registration for foreign investors.

What the inspection campaign seeks to rectify, therefore, is uneven implementation of reforms on-the-ground. And local governments found to be non-compliant may face swift punishment.

Recently, China’s new Ministry of Environment and Ecology announced that 4,305 officials had been held to account for failing to rectify environmental violations uncovered during last year’s inspections, with hundreds facing jail time.

While this round of inspections targets local governments rather than private businesses, it is another measure that will increase pressure on local governments to implement central government policies.

Delta to expand trans-Pacific service with nonstop Shanghai-Atlanta flight

Delta to expand trans-Pacific service with nonstop Shanghai-Atlanta flight

Delta Air Lines is expanding in Asia with new service between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport starting in July 2018.To get more shanghai airport news, you can visit shine news official website.

The new Atlanta flight will be Delta’s fourth U.S. gateway to Shanghai, complementing existing service from Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles. The flight will provide convenient one-stop access to more than 150 destinations in the U.S. and Latin America from Shanghai. In addition, the flight will also provide access to more than 50 destinations in China with codeshare partner China Eastern.

Ed Bastian Executive Headshot“Strong demand for Delta service across the Pacific and to China nonstop from the U.S. as well as our China Eastern partnership make this route compelling for both business and leisure travelers,” said Ed Bastian, Delta’s Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to connecting Delta’s hometown and China Eastern’s home with this route, while offering our customers innovative products, thoughtful in-flight service and leading operational reliability.”

The flight creates a direct link between one of China’s major commercial and industrial centers and Atlanta. The new flight adds to Delta’s existing service to Seoul and Tokyo, providing Atlanta with non-stop service to the three largest markets in Asia and convenient one-stop access to more than 75 destinations in Asia with partners China Eastern and Korean Air.

“Both global connectivity and maintaining a strong relationship with China are extremely vital to Georgia’s economic landscape,” said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. “This nonstop flight will not only serve our tourism industry by shortening the international travel time, but will bolster our business community as well. The flight will help shorten supply chains for our companies and give them a daily link to China for time-sensitive distribution. I appreciate Delta Air Lines for all of its hard work in making sure that Georgia remains a leader in the global marketplace.”

“Delta is a leading worldwide airline, and connecting Atlanta and Shanghai with direct service is a tremendous step for global commerce and for Georgia,” said U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.).

“This is a huge win for Georgia jobs and businesses. I’m glad to see Delta leading the charge to connect the U.S. business sector to one of the world’s largest financial hubs in Shanghai,” said U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.).“We are pleased that Delta is now offering non-stop service to Shanghai Pudong International Airport, strengthening Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s standing as the world’s busiest and most-efficient passenger airport and a gateway to the world,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. “This new direct route will open new business and cultural opportunities between Shanghai and Atlanta, and will support our thriving tourism industry. Currently, China ranks second for visitor volume to Atlanta, and we welcome the new travelers who will be able to come to our city or through our airport with this new direct route.”

USTR to open hearings Tuesday on China tariffs

The Office of the US Trade Representative will hold public hearings on Tuesday and Wednesday over proposed tariffs on $16 billion worth of imported Chinese goods.To get more china business news today, you can visit shine news official website.

The announced tariffs are in response to China’s trade practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property and innovation based on the findings in the USTR’s investigation under Section 301 of the US Trade Act of 1974.

Of the 25 percent tariffs authorized for $50 billion of Chinese products, tariffs on $34 billion are in effect, and tariffs on the remaining $16 billion will be the subject of the public hearings.

Tariffs also are a contentious issue between the US and the European Union, and with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker traveling to Washington on Wednesday to discuss trade with US President Donald Trump, automobiles will be the focus.

Trump said he is prepared to impose a 20 to 25 percent tax on imported automobiles and auto parts if negotiations don’t go well.

Europe has a 10 percent tariff on car imports, while the US has a 2.5 percent tariff on foreign cars. But the US also has a 25 percent tariff on light trucks (which includes SUVs).

Trump is talking about raising the tax on automobiles and auto parts to 20 or 25 percent.

“We said if we don’t negotiate something fair, then we have tremendous retribution, which we don’t want to use, but we have tremendous powers,” Trump said ahead of the meeting. “Including cars — cars is the big one. And you know what we’re talking about with respect to cars and tariffs on cars.

“They’re coming in to see me Wednesday, and we’ll see if we can work something out,” Trump said at a White House event on Monday. “Otherwise, we’ll have to do something with respect to the millions of cars that they send in every year. Maybe we can work something out.”

“We will continue to react tit-for-tat to the provocations that might be thrown at us,” Juncker said.

The Commerce Department is investigating whether auto industry imports threaten US national security.

“The tariffs under the guise of national security should be abolished,” said Dieter Kempf, head of Germany’s BDI industry association.

The German auto industry employed more than 118,000 Americans, and 60 percent of what they produced was exported, according to Kempf.

He called for talks on resolving trade disputes to take place at the World Trade Organization.

A group of US lawmakers held a “drive-in” rally with foreign automakers last week to protest the tariffs. The bipartisan group of 149 House members sent a letter to the Trump administration opposing new tariffs.
