tial sale of arms worth $2.2 billion to Taiwan, the US State Department

has not only further strained cross-Straits relations, it is also trying Beijing’s p上海419

atience. And by passing a series of acts and resolutions related to Taiwan this year, the US Congress has dealt a serious bl

上海419品茶微信ow to Sino-US relations, as well as undermined peace and stability across the Straits.

The US House of Representatives enacted the Taiwan Assurance Act of 2019 and passed a resolution reaffirming the US’ commitment to Taiwan on May 7, which es上海419

sentially means the US would sell arms to the island regularly and back its participation in international organizations.

上海419品茶微信That the US has continued to meddle in Taiwan affairs shows it is desperate to use the “Taiwan card” to contain the Chinese mainland.

The US believes that by consolidating its relationship with Taiwan authorities through a

cts and resolutions, it can further integrate the island into its “Indo-Pacific” strategy to contain the mainland, t上海419

he biggest rival in Washington’s eyes thanks, in part, to the trade disputes between them.

上海419Yet the ruling Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan, which favors an independent entity f

or the island, is willing to act as the cat’s paw for the US in exchange for security protection and p上海419品茶微信

olitical cover. Which is nothing but wishful thinking on the part of Taiwan authorities, because there is little chance o

f Washington getting involved in a war across the Straits if the DPP indeed tries to split the country.上海419

Following the DPP’s ideology of making Taiwan an independent entity, t

he island leader Tsai Ing-wen and other DPP officials have intensified their pro-in上海419品茶微信

dependence activities, especially in the fields of education, culture and administration, since she took office in 2

016. In fact, Lai Ching-te, Tsai’s rival in the island’s next leadership election in January 2020, openly pitched himself as a上海419品茶微信

worker for “Taiwan independence” before stepping down as the head of the executive body.

To send a clear message against secessionism to the Tsai administr

ation and give a strong warning to separatist forces on the island, the mainland has he

ld military exercises in the Taiwan Straits and sent warplanes and warships around the island.

The China International SME Fair – which has focused on establishing a platfor上海419

held from Oct 10-13 in Poly World Trade Expo Center this year, according to the event’s organizer.

“We have designed a series of activities to bring substantial benefits and business opportuni上海419女神会所

ties to international SME exhibitors, so that they can better participate in the industri

al and economic chains of the world,” said He Zuoxian, deputy director-general of the Guan

He, speaking at a media briefing on Tuesday, said activities at the fair would i上海419

上海419女神会所So far, delegations from 28 countries, regions and international organizations have confirmed they are attending, with reservations for almost 1,100 stands – accounting for about 45 percent of all booths at the October fair, according to the organizer.

The UAE delegation will comprise some 75 SMEs from a broad range of sectors: agriproducts, trade and retail, innovation, technology, hospitality, industries and manufacturing. These will cover a total exhibition area of 800 square meters, said Rahma Alshamsi, UAE consul general in Guangzhou.

A number of countries – including Bulgaria, Mexico, Brazil, the Philippines, Laos and Myanmar – have shown great interest in co-hosting the fair in the future and will hold talks with the organizers during the event, He said.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, which co-hosted the fair last year, has agreed to take the role for the next five years starting from this year. He said the move would give impetus to the consistent development of SMEs across the globe.

Zhang Linhe, head of the business unit in the Ofice of Japan External Organization in Gua

metalware – would join the Japanese delegation. Zhang said 17 of these are new to the event.
