Gavin Guo, international partner of Kewei, said that they had submitted an application for the joint operation to the Shang

上海夜网hai Municipal Bureau of Justice earlier this year and it took them three months to get the green light.

According to Guo, the joint operation of law firms is different from a joint ven

ture and does not include equity options. The two law firms are still independent e上海夜网女神会所

ntities but share administrative resources and provide one-stop legal services to clients.

Such joint operation models are attractive for multinational companies with operat上海夜网

ions in China and outbound Chinese companies, said Guo. Before this, companies need to go to a foreign la

上海夜网女神会所w firm and a Chinese law firm separately for legal services. This can be avoided as communication with both the l

aw firms can be completed in the same office and will incur only a single charge, he said.上海夜网

“Given the current global economic and political uncertainties and trade friction, governments are tightening their scru

上海夜网tiny and regulation in areas like foreign direct investment. The joint operation model will play a big role in te

rms of transaction habits, disputes resolution and even company strategies,” he said.

The first joint operation was set up by the Chicago-headquartered Baker McKenzie and Beijing Fenxun Partners in April 201上海夜网女神会所

5. In an action plan rolled out in April 2018, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Justice said it will study the possibility of pro

moting the joint operation model to the rest of the city to further improve the business environment.上海夜网

上海乌托邦After Monday’s selloff, the biggest of the year, Tuesday’s rebound of 312 points put the Dow at 26,023.

On Monday, the Dow lost 767.27 points, or 2.9 percent, after US President Donald Trump called China a currency manipulator.

“There is more uncertainty in the global environment,” Usha Haley, the W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair in In上海乌托邦

ternational Business and a professor of management at Wichita State University, told China Daily. “It does not contribute t

上海乌托邦女神会所o planning or investment in the global economy and doesn’t benefit China or the US. We’re in uncharted territory.”

“Most investors and traders do not find meaningful the designation of currency manipulator and most belie

ve it is unlikely to foster successful negotiations,” Andrew Karolyi, a finance professor at Cornell University, told Ch上海乌托邦

ina Daily. “Fluctuations in the yuan continue to reflect market supply and demand pressures and have for several y

ears. I would not rule out a US-China trade deal before the end of 2019 or early 2020. There are incentives in both co

上海乌托邦女神会所untries to stabilize trade flows and ease the burden of trade policy uncertainty.”

But Trump may be able to use the currency-manipulation charge to his advantage, one expert said.

“Unfortunately, the declaration that China is a currency manipulator can be used by the pr上海乌托邦女神会所

esident as a reason to take further unilateral actions against China,” Steve Charles Kyle, an economics pr

ofessor at Cornell University, told China Daily. “It is clearly bad news for both the USA and China. The USA will see highe

上海乌托邦r prices as tariffs take effect, and China will see fewer exports as the US buys less and also as production moves elsewhere.”

China’s economic reco上海夜网as the fastest and stea

diest since World War II compared with any other major country.

上海夜网New China faced many twists and turns in the first 30 years in rebuilding its economy. Even durin

g the 40 years of reform and opening-up, it has successfully weathered many a powerful s

torm including four major external crises: the debt crisis in the early 1980s, Western sanctions from the late 1980s to上海夜网女神会所

the early 1990s, the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis and the 2008 global financial crisis.

Centralized leadership adds to China’s advantages

上海夜网Admittedly, the Chinese economy has been facing a new type of challenge since the second half of 2018 because of the tr

ade war launched against it by the US. Yet the new challenge cannot be compared with the past external crises. Ev

en in the 1990s, at the height of Western sanctions, China was able to reverse the trade deficit that had u上海夜网女神会所

ndermined its economy for nearly 100 years since the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-95).

上海夜网Now, China has to deal with the fifth major external challenge: the US-instigated trade war. Notwithstanding the s

aber-rattling of some US politicians and the US administration’s desperate attempt to prevent the rise of Chinese hi

gh-tech companies, which reminds one of the Cold War, do those trying to force China to concede ground by applying “

上海夜网maximum pressure” really understand how China has weathered powerful storms in the past decades?

Without economic resilience and expertise in the high-tech sector, China would not have been able to close the

wide gap with the US in national strength. Perhaps this is why the US has labeled China as a major competitor.上海夜网女神会所

The domestic political infighting in the US unseen in decades is likely t

o intensify and create a bigger problem for the White House. By contrast, the

strengthened centralized leadership of China is well-positioned to deal with any challenges with greater efficiency. In this上海夜网

regard, the US hawks, who have turned a blind eye to China’s resilience, should look at China’s history and see how it has

overcome challenges, and stop resorting to “maximum pressure” to fulfill their narrow political goals.上海夜网女神会所

When US President Don上海千花网p assumed office in Jan

anuary 2017, he pledged GDP growth at 4 percent. More recently, he projected

上海千花网女神会所US growth at 3 percent. Yet analysts estimate US growth this year at 2.5 percent or less. Quali

tative assessments suggest deterioration, as the growth of domestic demand is slumping.

Worse, US GDP growth forecasts for 2020 indicate softening to 1.8 per上海千花网

cent, possibly a (near-recession) slowdown-especially if trade and tech wars still

escalate. In the absence of negative surprises, China’s GDP growth is lik

上海千花网ely to stay within the target of 6.2 percent in 2019 and possibly in 2020 as well, with

supportive fiscal and monetary conditions. US tariff wars are likely to penalize the Chinese economy by less

上海千花网女神会所than 0.5 percent of GDP, which could be offset by just a modest depreciation of the renminbi.

If recent policy mistakes in the White House prevail, slower growth in i

nvestment spending, rising concern for continued trade wars and destabilizing geopolitics are likely to foster downside上海千花网

risks in global economic prospects, as risks for further downgrades morph into actual realities.

From recruitment, commandos face life-and-death tests of blood and fire, suffering and fatigue, and danger and hardship.

They have to undergo a series of rigorous tests. Only after one year of super-intensive training wi

To be ready for battle at any time, day or night, every Jiaolong commando has undergone thousands of exercises.
