ificance of the visit? Two experts share their views with China Daily’s Pan Yixuan. Excerpts follow:

DPRK not bargaining chip in talks with US

xpected meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 su

The US has not only intensified screening and restrict

tions on Chin上海419论坛女神会所a, but also blocked technology exports to Chinese companies. Therefore we need to be prepared for

the possibility that the US may ban all high-tech product exports to China in the future,” Li said.

“The new move will be a major step to strengthen controls over technological exports. It is necessary for China to set up export control

s and management systems for certain products, especially for those advanced technological produc

ts in which we’ve gained a global edge. China needs to tighten regulations and prevent those exported products fro

m being used to suppress and damage China’s development as well as its national security,” Li added.

Mei Xinyu, a researcher at the academy, said, “Compared with ad

vanced countries, we still lag behind in management of technology concerning national security.”

“I would suggest China takes key measures to safeguard national security in terms of

both imports and exports,” Mei said. “First, we need to ensure that the imported te

Two-way trade between China and Russia hit a recor

 of over $100 billion last year. Major strategic cooperation projects have been steadily

carried out in such areas as energy, transportation, agriculture, aviation and space.

Xi said that the notable results of the two countries’ business cooperation are especially valuable given the current co

mplex environment of sluggish global trade and investment and surging protectionism in the world.

China and Russia are making proactive efforts to bring their trade volum

e to a higher level and promote high-quality development in bilateral trade, he added.

speech clearly and objectively articulated the purposes, positions and aspirations of the Chinese military.

Wei also “honestly answered all 22 very sensitive and difficult” questions from the audience

, further cementing the PLA’s image as a confident and responsible force, he added.

Major General Jin Yinan, a retired professor of international relations at PLA National D

Spain’s SEAT set to make China comeback by 2021

Spain’s largest carmaker SEAT is set to make a comeback in China around 2021, a move that will help its parent

company Volkswagen AG secure a larger share in the world’s largest new energy vehicle market.

“The Spanish brand aims to enter the Chinese market in the coming two to three years,” said Volkswagen in a stat

ement on Tuesday, citing an agreement it signed with SEAT and Chinese carmaker JAC Motors.

SEAT pulled out of China in 2014 after two years of poor sales of its gasoline vehicles.

This time, it will enter the Chinese market through JAC Volks

wagen, a 50-50 joint venture established in Hefei, Anhui pr

ovince, in 2017 to develop, produce and sell pure battery vehicles.
