The latest Chinese edit上海乌托邦 book, RN: The Memo

irs of Richard Nixon, was published in May this year to mark the 40th anniversary of th

e normalization of China-US ties. Different translated versions were also published in 1979 and 2001.上海乌托邦

The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree

上海乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.

In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa上海乌托邦

nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.

“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers

上海乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in

ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com

munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.上海乌托邦

According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi

bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.

Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h

上海乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”

The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w

ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.上海乌托邦

“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w

orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l

ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C

hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin上海乌托邦品茶微信

g. He also hinted that China would welcome a high-ranking US official as head of the delegation.

The Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News praised the play to be “a highly aesthetic new Kun

Encouraged by the success of the premiere, SGT has decided to present a second round of performances over Nov 22-24.

“We hope to add the play to our repertoire so that it can go on to be sta上海千花网

ged for many years to come,” says Zhang Xiaoding, the general manager of SGT.

US toy prices may rise d上海后花园e to additional tariff

Experts warn it would damage small companies as consumers pay for the hit

上海后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on

an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shi上海后花园女神会所

pping month, when many Chinese toy manufacturers send their products to the United States.

上海后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian

ce on manufacturing in China, many will still make the US consumer pay more if the tariffs hit.

“Hasbro will have no choice but to pass along the increased costs to our US custo上海后花园

mers,” said Brian Goldner, CEO of toy company Hasbro. He said the Pawtucket, Rhode Islandbased company, the

上海后花园女神会所maker of popular products such as Monopoly and GI Joe, was working to reduce its reliance on manufacturers in Chi

na, but he also said it has built up extra inventory, incurring additional storage costs, as it braces for tariffs.

It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton We上海后花园

iser, a senior research analyst at financial services firm D.A. Davidson Companies, told China Daily.

上海后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix

and sourcing options. Many also will continue to move manufacturing from China to countries like Vietnam.

“They will do as much as they can to mitigate or offset the impact of the tariffs through all the different measures, but it’s un上海后花园

certain now to what extent they will be able to either partially or fully offset the impact,” Weiser said.

上海后花园女神会所”The good news is that the tariff is only 10 percent, so a product-price increase of 5 percent is neede

d to keep gross profit dollars unchanged. However, the gross margin would decline,” she said.
