"We will do our utmost to condemn those unfair economic practices and break down market obstacles." Some politicians in the United States have always been vocal. But in fact, many of the policies and practices of the US today are creating unfairness and becoming the biggest obstacle to the market economy.
Take a look at the latest case. Not long ago, the US government listed Chinese high-tech enterprises in the “entity list” in the name of national security. Enterprises or individuals on the list need to obtain relevant licenses to purchase or obtain American technology through transfer. The introduction of bans, serial blockades, and the use of state machines to suppress other enterprises, is this the "market economy" and "free competition" advertised by American politicians? The United States is a defender of the market economy and points to the development model of other countries. At the same time, the United States has rudely chosen the rules of the market economy and dealt with international economic and trade cooperation with a pragmatic attitude. Such words and deeds are different, strong buy and sell, where is in line with the rules of the market economy, how can it be convincing?
Over the past year or so, the US has rushed to the banner of "national security," setting obstacles to foreign-invested enterprises, including Chinese companies, and has vetoed many foreign M&A transactions. There are also some American politicians wearing tinted glasses, either catching the wind and throwing "safety risk" of dirty water on Chinese companies, or swearing that Americans refuse to buy any Chinese-made goods. What supports these behaviors is the hegemonic logic of "strong buying and selling": what the United States can easily produce, what the world must buy, and developing countries can only export low value-added products and services to the United States, and must be safe in the United States for a long time. The dumping ground of products and the supply of low-end products, in order to "US priority", other countries must make unconditional concessions.
In fact, some politicians in the United States have only interests and no rules in their eyes. They can trample on any human rules in order to realize the interests of the United States. According to the WTO Dispute Judgment Research Report, the United States is by far the biggest "unruly person" who does not comply with the WTO ruling. There are indications that raising tariffs has become a tool for the US to suppress trading partners, and any country may be hurt. Even the New York Times acknowledged that the US “had repeatedly agreed to reach new trade terms with other countries, but then talked about canceling these agreements to achieve more.” In the eyes of many international people, Washington is pursuing "US priority" and unscrupulously maximizing its own interests. It is the "troublemaker" and "order destroyer" of the world.
Some behaviors of the US government have seriously undermined fair, open, and cooperative market economy rules. The purpose is to safeguard the US's technological hegemony and technological superiority. This is a selfish mentality of "seeing no one else." According to the data, as of March this year, China accounted for 34.02% of the number of standard essential patent applications required for 5G communications, compared with only 14% in the United States. Some politicians in the United States have thus declared nakedly that "5G is a zero-sum arms race that the United States can only win." "It is ten times more important to kill Huawei than to reach a Sino-US agreement." On the one hand, the United States accuses other countries of the existence of security risks, but on the other hand, it spares no effort to collect economic intelligence and secretly monitor competitors. This clearly shows that the so-called security risks and the compulsory transfer of technology are all used to suppress Chinese technology. Develop this real purpose. The author of the recently popular book "American Trap" bluntly asks, "I was Alstom yesterday, today is Huawei, then who will be tomorrow?"
"Noble competition is the source of all excellence." The current US government should understand the laws governing the operation of the market economy. Trampling the spirit of the contract, undermining the rule of law, and distorting fair competition, the United States will not only fail to achieve "US priority," but will be counterproductive. The US government hopes to realize the return of the industry through the addition of tariffs, but the actual situation is counterproductive. Tesla announced that it will invest and build factories in Shanghai. Harley-Davidson Motors also decided to transfer some production lines overseas. The US government hopes to suppress China's technological development by blocking Huawei. However, more and more countries have decided to adopt Huawei technology. Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir recently publicly stated that “will use Huawei technology as much as possible”. It can be said that in today's economic globalization, you have me in all countries and you, and you have a hegemonic era that is thicker and more powerful than anyone else. The US government's actions to undermine the rules of the market economy will only increase the burden on American consumers and weaken the competitiveness of US companies.
"If a cause is good for society, it should let it be free, broaden its competition, and the more free and more competitive, the more favorable the cause will be to the society." For Adam Smith's famous saying, the US politicians who are in high positions Do you still remember? In the 1930s, the United States significantly increased import tariffs on more than 20,000 foreign goods, triggering the Great Depression of the United States. This history of American politicians should not forget. Violating the laws of the market and engaging in strong buying and selling, a country will not "re-great", but will only suffer from the historical trend of the big waves.
In response to the recent US escalation of trade frictions with China and suppression of Chinese technology companies, foreign guests who participated in the activities of the liaison department of the CPC Central Committee recently expressed their appreciation for China’s publication of the White Paper on China’s Position on China-US Economic and Trade Consultations. Concerns about the economic and trade frictions provoked by the United States will have a negative impact on global economic growth.
The Austrian-Chinese Friendship Association’s executive vice-chairman and the famous Austrian sinologist Gerd Kaminski believe that China has recently issued a white paper entitled “China’s Position on China-US Economic and Trade Consultations”, which further clarifies China’s position and legitimate concerns. When China conducts foreign cooperation, it always adheres to the concept of mutual benefit and win-win, which is also the concept shared by China and the EU. "No one can stop the pace of China's development and progress. I am full of confidence in China's economic development and further deepening Austria-China economic and trade cooperation," Kaminsky said.
"The white paper recently published by the Chinese side on the "China's position on China-US economic and trade consultations" details the real situation of Sino-US trade consultations. The international order is used to abide by, not trample on, and hopes that the US can show the sincerity of its partners. Understand China’s position and attitude and work together to promote the progressive development of human society,” said Mabere, representative of the Congolese Reconstruction and Democratic People’s Party in China.
Liang Weihong, vice chairman of the Malaysian “Belt and Road” committee, said: “China’s position on Sino-US economic and trade frictions is very firm. The white paper clearly clarifies the facts of Sino-US trade frictions and consultations. Our business community has close trade with China. In the past, we firmly support China's position." The news network reported on June 8 that in a recent report issued by the US Department of Defense, Taiwan was included in the "state" list. Hong Kong's "South China Morning Post" believes that the US move is the latest example of a series of provocative actions that seem to be aimed at confronting China.
According to the Hong Kong "South China Morning Post" website reported on June 7, this wording is contained in the 55-page "Indian Strategy Report" published on June 1, which clearly violates the one-China principle that the United States has long adhered to. . Analysts say the use of the word "country" is the latest move by the Trump administration because the United States and China are on the opposite side of issues such as trade, security, education, visas, technology, and different views on "civilization." Analysts also said that the past view of Taiwan as a "state" was often a misstatement of US officials, rather than a wording in a carefully edited report.
The report pointed out that since the normalization of relations with Beijing in 1979, Washington has been maintaining the so-called "strategic ambiguity" in dealing with the Taiwan issue, avoiding mentioning that Taiwan is a so-called "state" and an "association" in Taipei. Internal relations between the two parties. However, the United States has pledged to continue to provide commercial, cultural and military support to Taiwan in accordance with the so-called "Taiwan Relations Act" of 1979. However, as the United States and China upgraded the tit-for-tat trade war by levying tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of goods and imposing restrictions on companies, the US government seems increasingly inclined to take stimulating actions against China.
“Every relevant country, company and individual will respond to the negative effects caused by trade frictions. China’s position is China’s positive response, reflecting China’s courage and responsibility.” Song Khan, Managing Director of Nepal Gini Technology Co., Ltd. Srisha believes that in today's world, countries and countries, the people and the people are closely connected. The impact of Sino-US economic and trade frictions has exceeded the scope of the two countries. What we should do now is to continue to respect the rational, rules and market economy. "The business world is not only the business world, but the whole world is paying attention to the development of Sino-US economic and trade frictions. The Chinese government has published a white paper that is courageous and responsible, we are from the White Paper," said Kassim Tefali, Chairman of the Lebanese China Arab Cooperation and Development Association. I understand the official position of China, but the United States has always been a few politicians who are talking to themselves."
"The US side has used political means to intervene and suppress Chinese technology companies such as Huawei. It is a mistake and has been widely opposed." Kaminsky believes that the economic and trade frictions provoked by the United States are very unfair and extremely harmful, not only harming The economic and trade interests of China and the United States bring challenges to the global economy.
"I used to study the theory and practice of economic globalization and international trade in the United States, but what we see today is that everything is reversed. China is the defender of multilateral mechanisms and international trade, and the United States is shrinking. From what we have been concerned about In the process of Sino-US economic and trade frictions, the economic and trade frictions provoked by the United States indicate that the United States has reversed its drive in the entire international economic order, causing negative effects on China and the United States and the entire world. Especially in the long run, the United States The tariffs imposed and imposed restrictions will ultimately damage the United States itself.” Tefalley said that opening up the market, negotiating on an equal footing, and common development are in the interests of the world as a whole. "Through long-term observation of China, I am convinced that China's ability to innovate comes from China's internal, different regions, and large and small enterprises. Therefore, China's scientific and technological progress has come from China itself. The experience and achievements of China's opening up to the outside world are all for the whole world. It is a huge impact. The world needs to seize the opportunity of cooperation with China and seize the opportunity of an open Chinese market."
Mabelei believes that the current development momentum of the world comes from high-tech innovation. The 5G technology developed by Chinese companies is in line with the development needs of the current digital age. From the perspective of technological development, it should support the benign competition among enterprises, rather than the political exploration and development of science and technology, and should not defend its hegemony by suppressing technological R&D in other countries. "Whether it is world influence or economic and trade exchanges with other countries, I believe that China will maintain long-term healthy development in the future. The world needs China's development and needs the balance of global economic and trade environment brought about by China's development," Mabere said. Liang Weihong said that in today's highly developed economic globalization, the US-China economic and trade frictions provoked by the United States are not only aimed at China, but also affect other countries in the world.
