With Pyongyang seeking economic development, there is an opportunity for China and the DPRK to strengthen their compre

hensive friendship and deepen cooperation. The two sides have already strengthened cooperation in tourism, pe

ople-to-people exchanges and pharmaceuticals, which are allowed by the UN sanctions.

During their meeting, Xi and Kim might discuss how to deepen cooperation in security, including den

uclearization, and trade and regional development, including exploring the potential of T

umen River economic cooperation, and cooperation in developing China’s northeast region.

To work with other countries in such programs, the DPRK has to expedite the denuclearization process and focus on its eco

nomy, because a peaceful Korean Peninsula will be conducive to the DPRK’s economic development, and vice-versa.

Despite a general decline, great difficulties still exist for China to bring

down the percentage of smokers to 20 percent by 2030, China CDC said in a statement.

The survey, released ahead of World No Tobacco Day, which falls on Friday, showed increasing public support for tobacco

control. More than 90 percent of those surveyed said they support a total ban on tobacco in the workplace, and mo

re than 95 percent said they support banning smoking in hospitals, middle and primary schools and public tr

ansportation. Nearly 80 percent said they hope to see a ban on tobacco in restaurants.

These parties tend to look at trade agreements purely from

m a nationalist point of view and if a trade agreement is seen as overall beneficial for their co

untry, they could support it. For instance, Italy voted in favor of the EU agreement with Japan but again

st the agreement with Canada. The content of the agreement is key. For instance, these parties do not like clauses tha

t curtail the powers of single EU member states, such as the establishment of new regulatory or arbitration bodies.

Another uncertainty is Brexit. Whether it will happen or not? And what might change under

a new British prime minister? The new Brexit Party under Nigel Farage was the clear leader in the EP

election in the United Kingdom, but the UK’s 73 EP members have to leave the EP as soon as Brexit takes place.

Luckin, a Starbucks rival in China, rises in US stock debut

Shares of Luckin Coffee, a fast-growing rival to Starbucks in China, rose 20 percent in their US stock market debut Friday.

The Chinese company, which opened its first store in Beijing less than two years ago, has 2,370

locations and plans to surpass the 3,700 stores Starbucks has in China by the end of the year.

But unlike Starbucks, Luckin is losing money.

It brought in $125 million in revenue last year, but spent much more than

that on coffee beans, store rent and other costs. Last year, it lost $475 million.

Most of Luckin’s stores are small, have few seats and are used mainly as a place to pick up mobile orders.

It also offers delivery in 30 minutes and promises a refund for delays or spilled drinks.

Irwin said that every day the fish seem to prefer different temperatures and water depths. He is us

The half-brothers are not the only ones lured to the state by Asian car

In Atlanta, they were employed as kitchen workers by Chinese restaurants. After le

Chen Zhongjie, general manager of Hongdong Fishe

a company based in Fujian province, said that as a private fishery company, it is difficult for it to o

btain loans for investing overseas, and his knowledge about overseas markets is limited.

Sinosure’s insurance services have helped Hongdong obtain financing and accelerated Hongdo

ng’s construction of a whole industrial chain fishery plant in Mauritania, where infrastructure was very poor.

“Chinese companies do invest in the fishing industry overseas, but ev

erybody faces different situations, including differences in policies, regulations and cul

tures,” Chen said. “Sinosure has given us a lot of information about investment destinations. Its insurance services have increas

ed our credit and helped us obtain financing from banks, which in turn has helped ensure the success of our project.”
