Ahead of the second上海千花网f the bill in the Legis

 the Legislative Council, the protests escalated.

On June 15, Hong Kong leader Lam suspended the bill. The next da上海千花网

y, Lam apologized and offered to “accept all criticism” and “serve the public”.

But the demonstrations did not stop.

上海千花网女神会所Paul Yeung, a Hong Kong-based researcher and commentator on public policy, said the protests against the extradi

tion bill have morphed into demonstrations against the local government’s manner of responding to pub

lic opinion. Thus the protests are continuing, though the bill has been declared “dead”, he said.

Some observers say many y上海千花网oung people who took to the streets were merely affected b

y peer influence, instigated by a small number of radicals, and lost their critical thinking and simply followed.

Yeung said another factor leading to the situation in Hong Kong is that the government上海千花网女神会所

has failed to respond in a timely manner to young people’s aspirations and sentiments throughout the process.

上海千花网He said channels that the Hong Kong government is to establ

ish to communicate with local people can help break the city’s current deadlock.

But he said it will be a difficult task, given the tense social atmosphere. “It is imperative to restore peace and r上海千花网

ationality to society, with both sides showing a willingness to compromise before dialogue,” he added.

Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 150 years, and p上海千花网女神会所

上海千花网Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country

“Attempts to suppress Huawei’s business won’t help the US achieve technological leadership. We call on the US gover上海后花园女神会所

Washington at first put Huawei on the Entity List in May, banning it from buyin

The IMF is the world’s 上海后花园oritative institution

 to assess exchange rates, not the US Treasury Department,” said Z

hu Jun, director of the International Department of the People’s Bank of China, the central ba上海后花园

nk, at the China Finance 40 Forum on Saturday. The CF40 is a nongovernmental, nonprofit think tank.

上海后花园女神会所The IMF has long been committed to promoting international financial stability

and currency cooperation, redressing the imbalances of international payments, Zhu said.

Citing previous market performance, Zhu said the yuan has depreciated against the dollar fo上海后花园

llowing Washington’s renewed threat of tariff hikes on Chinese goods. Similarly, the yuan fluctuations earlier this m

onth were a natural market reaction, resulting from trade tensions that have been escalated by the US, she said.

上海后花园The yuan weakened to above 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade last week,

after Washington’s threat to slap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods starting Sept 1.上海后花园女神会所

Shortly after the yuan fell beyond the psychological threshold, the US Treasury Departme

nt declared that China was manipulating its currency to achieve unfair trade advantage.上海后花园

Zhu said that despite the trade tensions over the past year and a hal

f, China has never used exchange rates to respond to external disruptions.

The IMF report, referring to last year’s performance of the yuan, also said that even上海后花园女神会所

though the Chinese currency depreciated against the dollar fairly rapidly

from mid-June to early August, it was “broadly stable” against a basket of benchmark currencies.上海后花园

Moreover, the Chinese monetary authorities took measures, including reintroducing a countercyclical adjus

tment factor, to resist depreciation pressure during that period, according to the report, which is based on the IMF’s latest

上海后花园女神会所Article IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.

The IMF report released last week suggests that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, said Yu Yongding, a se

nior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant for the CF40 forum.上海后花园女神会所

The IMF report provides evidence that, rather than artificially depreci

ating the yuan for trade advantage, as the US administration alleged, China has shown a

pattern of commitment to keeping the yuan generally in equilibrium at an adaptive

level, said Liu Chunsheng, an associate professor at Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.
