China is threatening to hit back against planned US tariffs, saying it is “absolutely not afraid” of the consequences.

This puts the world’s two largest economies at each other’s throats.

But what is a trade war? How does protectionism work? And how will it all affect you?

What is a trade war?
It’s what it sounds like – a trade war is when countries try to attack each other’s trade with taxes and quotas.

One country will raise tariffs, a type of tax, causing the other to respond, in a tit-for-tat escalation.

This can hurt other nations’ economies and lead to rising political tensions between them.

US President Donald Trump reckons trade wars are “good” and easy. He’s not afraid to raise tariffs.

One aim of the literature festival is to improve the cul

ltural appeal of the countryside so as to attract people back, Jia says. The organizers are als

o working to promote communication between the authors and the villagers, and encourage more reading activities.

Rural resident Ren Chunhua, 63, who now works as a narrator at a local history gallery, was list

ening to Ge Fei’s lecture in her gallery neighboring the festival venue and wanted to buy his work and got the write

r’s signature. She thought Ma’s work inspired by village life in the 1950s was well-written and accurately reflected the reality there.

Literature aficionado Cao Liang drove for two hours from Taigu county to attend the lectures. Having coll

ected all of Su’s books and being familiar with many of the guest authors’ works, he is currently writing his own novel.

Villagers took turns to attend the festival, a move which Ren believes will in

vigorate the local cultural environment and raise Jiajiazhuang’s profile.

letter receives high praise from primary school students in

Students from a Macao primary school hailed President Xi Jinping’s reply letter delivered to them before International Chil

dren’s Day, and they pledged to live up to Xi’s expectations by passing on the traditions of loving Macao and the country.

In the library of the Hou Kong Premier School Affiliated to Hou Kong Middle School in Macao, students clapped after hearing Xi’s letter.

Hou Kong Middle School, established in 1932, was the first to raise a national flag in Macao on Oct 1, 1949.

“I am so excited to receive a reply,” said fifth-grader Dang Wingzi, one of the stude

nts who wrote the initial letter to Xi. “I will study hard to be able to better serve the country.”

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agric

ricultural products such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

“I’m of course frustrated at the effects of some of the Chinese-im

posed tariffs on our exporters – that’s a huge problem first for our growers, and companies in our

aerospace supply chain, and definitely our fish and seafood – they’ve been affected by Chinese tariffs,” said Habib.

With the Trump administration gradually imposi

ng 25 percent tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese imports over the past year, China has already retaliated with

tariffs on $110 billion worth of US products, and has planned a tariff hike on $60 billion worth of US goods on June

First, China has undisputable sovereignty over islands and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea, backed by a wealth of historical and legal basis,” Shao said.

For a long period of time, various nations’ normal passage and flight in the region have never been obstructed. “There i

s no issue over the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea,” he said.

However, the US has frequently sent vessels and aircraft to trespass into Chinese mar

itime territory and airspace, and has conducted intense intelligence gathering and special drills in the region.

“These actions damage the peace and security of the region,” Shao said. “As a result, the PLA

has installed necessary defense equipment on the islands in accordance with security needs. This is within

the natural rights of a sovereign state, and a necessary measure to counter those provocative actions.”

an India in terms of economic might-the past two years

s have seen Modi front-loading India’s unique religious, cultural and civilizational links with neighboring countries.

This pragmatic approach has not just made the Sino-Indian summits most frequent but hopefully also more produ

ctive. Modi has not had as many one-on-one meetings with any other global leader. And since this trend is like

ly to continue, it could see them jointly responding to the White House’s blitzkrieg against friends and foes alike.

The fact that Russia still faces serious economic challenges and the US has slipped into confrontations with some coun

tries will provide further traction for Modi and Xi to play larger roles in setting the tone and tenor of multilateral debate

s and initiatives. Their synergy in tackling regional and global issues will continue to have positive effects on bila

teral equations, which remain an essential prerequisite for the two countries’ peaceful rise.
