To bring an end to the protests sparked by the proposed amendments to the special administrative region’s extradit

ministration’s decision not to restart the suspended legislative process for the amendments, saying the “bill is dead”.
上海千花网女神会所The demonstrations, some of them violent, have threatened the health of the city’s economy and thus the well-being of its resi
dents, and Lam also unveiled a raft of practical initiatives aimed at strengthening communication between th
e SAR government and the public, with the ultimate objective of improving governance in the SAR.上海千花网女神会所
It might be demanding too much of those leading the protests to have the kind of vision and political courage exhibited by the chief exec
上海千花网utive in her willingness to make compromises in policymaking in the face of public opposition. But they sh
ould have the wisdom to realize that persistent political conflict and unrest do not bode well for the city and residents, es
pecially at a time when the local economy is still licking its wounds from the ongoing Sino-US trade row.上海千花网女神会所
Hong Kong’s economy has slowed significantly over recent months, with the yea
上海千花网r-on-year GDP growth having eased to 0.6 percent in the first quarter of this year — the
slowest expansion in a decade — as both foreign trade and domestic consumption have been hard hit by the tra
de conflict between the Chinese mainland and the United States, the city’s two largest trading partners. Any es上海千花网女神会所
calation of the social conflict witnessed recently will only further harm Hong Kong’s economy and people’s livelihoods.
上海千花网Yet, the organizers of some of the mass rallies have said they will announce
more protests in the coming days until the bill is officially withdrawn from the legi
slative agenda. But more social unrest will only hinder efforts to tackle the fundamental problems that have a ta上海千花网
ngible effect on the lives of Hong Kong residents, particularly the younger generation — such as the severe housing s上海千花网女神会所
hortage, lack of social upward mobility and the widening wealth gap, which have fueled the social discontent.
war is intensifying within the US. For example, the US Chamber of Commerce – one of the country’s most powerful bu
上海会所siness lobbies – has called for the reversal of all tariffs imposed over the past two years.
The effects of the trade war have already spread to cross-border investment
. In recent years, rising Chinese production costs have driven many foreign enterp上海会所女神会所
rises – and, increasingly, even Chinese enterprises – to relocate their operations to lower-cost countries such as
Vietnam and Thailand. The trade war is accelerating this process. According to the Vietnamese government, inward for
上海会所eign direct investment increased by nearly 70 percent year-on-year in the first five months of 2019, the highest such i
ncrease since 2015. Meanwhile, the growth of US investment in China is slowing.上海会所女神会所
Essential to improve investment environment
上海会所The US administration wants American companies to leave China. It is u
p to China to persuade them to stay. That means improving the local investment envi
ronment, including responding to foreign companies’ justifiable complaints – say, by strengthening intellectual p上海会所
roperty rights protection – and, more broadly, better adhering to World Trade Organization rules.
But the pressure on China does not end there. The US is also eager to exclude the count
上海会所女神会所ry’s high-tech companies from global value chains. Trump recently announced that he would allow US co
mpanies to continue to sell to Chinese high-tech giant Huawei, after a months-long campaign against the company. But it r
emains highly unlikely that the US administration – which reversed a similarly aggressive policy toward sm
artphone company ZTE last year – will abandon its efforts to strangle China’s high-tech industries.上海会所女神会所
China has three options. First, it could accede to US pressure to disengage from global value chains. Second, it could remain
committed to integration, hoping that, thanks to existing interconnections, sanctions on Chinese high-tech com上海会所
panies will also hurt their US counterparts (such as Qualcomm) enough for the US administration to back d
上海会所女神会所own. The third option is to focus on supporting domestic high-tech companies’ effo
rts to strengthen their own positions within global value chains and develop contingency plans.
