American Soybean Association President Davie Stephens said on Tuesday.
President Donald Trump threatened in a tweet on Sunday to increase tariffs.
Stephens, a grower from Clinton, Kentucky, said that US farmers are in a tough situation, and with depressed prices
and unsold stocks forecast to double before the 2019 harvest begins in September, farmers urgently need the China market.
“We need a positive resolution of this ongoing tariff dispute, not further escalation of tensions,” he said in a release posted on the ASA web site.
Nicole Kaeding, vice-president of federal and special projects at the Washington-based Tax Foun
dation, said that if the Trump administration follows through on the president’s threat, it’s US taxp
ayers, not Chinese taxpayers, who will pay the price — thanks to higher prices and fewer job opportunities.
iang Uygur autonomous region in April, he realized that education is still weak in the region and good teachers are in short supply.
To help change the situation, he applied to volunteer as a
teacher at a middle school in a Xinjiang town after graduation in July.
“My biggest hope for the next year is that more students in my class will a
chieve better results, enter high school and grow up as contributors to society,” Zhang said.
Yi Zhihao, a doctoral student at the School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering of Beihang University in Beiji

eld at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, capital of China, April 30, 2019. Chinese lea
ders Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji, Han Zheng and Wang Qishan were pr
fivefold in the past few years, which helps reduce trade disparities with developed
economies. He called on all CEE nations to take the opportunity to deepen economic and trade cooperation with China.
Zhong Shan, minister of commerce, said over 1,000 people participated, the most since the event started nine yea
rs ago. “It demonstrates the increasing confidence in the forum and cooperation with China at large,” he said.
In recent years, China’s trade with CEE nations has seen rapid growth. According to the Ministry
of Commerce, China’s imports from the countries have risen by 24.6 percent to $23 billion. Chinese compan
ies have invested over $10 billion in CEE nations, which in turn have injected more than $1.5 billion into China,
focusing on machinery, auto components, the chemical industry, financing and environmental protection.
After the forum, Li and Plenkovic attended an exhibition of Chin
a-CEEC education cooperation and a dialogue mechanism to boost cooperation among small an
d medium-sized enterprises from both sides. Before leaving for Beijing, Li also had separate
mmercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (COMAC), for example. At the earliest, COMAC will get the airworth
iness certificate for C919 in 2021. Besides, just obtaining the certificate does not reduce even a bit of the difficulty in making and delivering the aircraft.
As the history of aircraft manufacturing shows, it is almost impossible for manufacturer
s to obtain airworthiness certificate and deliver aircraft to the purchasers on time. More often than not, aerospace companies ta
ke several years more than the promised time to deliver the aircraft. For instance, both Boeing 787 Drea
mliner and Airbus 380 were delivered years behind schedule. Which means delayed delivery is a norm in the aerospace industry.
In short, it would take decades for Chinese manufacturers to mass-produce airplanes irrespective of the rise and fall of other aircraft makers.
China has made great strides in industrialization during the 40 years of reform and opening
-up, but for that it learned from developed countries’ experiences and put its own experiences to good
use. The complete system of research, development, safety, production, supply chain and service that took Boein
g and Airbus decades to establish should be what Chinese aircraft manufacturers should strive for. With continuo
us efforts, C919 could earn its place in the civil aviation industry－perhaps 10, even 20, years later.
