the percentage of adult smokers to 20 percent by 2030, we have a lot of work to do,” he said.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba

cco industry, which is one of the biggest tax contributors to the government, he said.

Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,

national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.

es it a large exporter of manufactured goods to the US and

Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumption in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of eco

nomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a situa

tion, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.

To make up for the increasing savings gap, the US needs to introduce and use more foreign ca

pital, which will further enlarge the trade deficit. Therefore, the US cannot simultaneously maintain a high g

rowth rate, invest massively in infrastructure, reduce the trade deficit and restrict the inflow of foreign capital.

What is really questionable is that, despite its contempt for over-regulation of the economy, the US administration has been tryi

ng to impose regulations on international trade, even for its trade partners’ domestic economic management.

China has exercised great restraint and goodwill in

trying to maintain stable relations with the US,” he said.

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs Universi

ty, said Washington has pushed a hard line in relations with Beijing in recent years.

“The Taiwan question is much more complicated and nonnegotiable,” Li said.

“If the US side continues to misinterpret the one-­China policy, it will irreparably damage Sino­-US ties,” he warned.

The US Senate will have to vote on the act before it can become law. The time of the vote is unknown.

“The consensus among US officials is to be tough on China, and room for rational option

s is rapidly shrinking as overconfidence and rash actions become the new norm,” he said.

It’s time high-tech and internet companies designed a reaso

onable salary system to motivate their employees to give full play to their creativity and pro

ductivity, instead of forcing the workers to work long hours without adequate remuneration.

Chinese internet firms should learn from the managerial experiences of their foreign counterparts such

as Google and Facebook to incentivize their staff if they want them to work overtime and improve their productivity.
