ushman & Wakefield said the slump was largely the resu

lt of stricter capital controls and regulations from the mainland. The Chinese govern

ment implemented the controls to better “regulate and manage outbound investment flows,” David Bit

ner, Cushman & Wakefield’s head of capital market research, said in an interview Thursday.

“I think Chinese investments are generally refocusing their interests into other types of i

nvestments, such as infrastructure (and) R&D (research-and-development) facilities. However, when it com

es to commercial real estate, I think the interest will remain as opportunities arise,” Selma Hepp, vice-president of b

Bitner also expects Chinese investment in US re

China will continue to propose laws and regulations to further guide and manage research

ethics and academic integrity, Minister of Science and Technology Wang Zhigang said on Monday.

Relevant guidelines are necessary for scientists to be aware of their academic conduct,

stick to the norms of scientific research and follow regulations when commercializing scientific achievements, he said.

sregard laws for the sake of personal fame and fortune should be regulated,” he said.

The nation’s current Ebola outbreak started in August. It is th

  second-deadliest and second-largest in history, topped only by one in West Africa in 2014, when the disease killed more than 11,000 people, according to the WHO.

  Last week, the WHO put the number of Ebola cases in DRC at 913 — with 848 cases confirmed and 65 probable. It said 574 people had died.

  Ebola first appeared in 1976 and is one of the world’s most virulent diseases.

  It is transmitted through direct contact with blood or other bodily fluids of infect

ed people, causing fever, severe headaches and in some cases hemorrhaging.

  UK Prime Minister Theresa May is braced for what could be her big

  That road map is at stake this Tuesday, when lawmakers vote for a second time on her withdrawal agreeme

nt to take Britain out of the EU. If that agreement is defeated, they will be asked the following day whether or not th

e UK should leave without a deal — an option May said should be kept for negotiating purposes.

Future of Sino-US ties lies in cooperationhina and the Uni

More than 40 years ago China and the United States engaged in “ping pong diplomacy”, ea

sing the tensions between the two countries ever since the founding of New China in 1949.

With the People’s Republic of China retaining its rightful seat in the Un

ited Nations Security Council in 1971 and its international status continuously imp

roving, it had become apparent that the US policy to contain New China would be fruitless.

The US, on the other hand, was mired in the Vietnam War, which was sapping its national po

wer. So the US administration realized it should establish friendly relations with China in order to end the w

ar. Against this background, on Jan 1, 1979, the two countries formally established diplomatic relations.

But even before it established diplomatic relations with the US, China launched reform and opening-up in late 1978. As the leade

r of the Western world, the US played the dominant role in the global economy, as well as the technology, invest

ment, finance and other fields, with which China had to integrate to ensure its economic development.

Over the past four decades, Sino-US economic and trade

relations have not only become more interdependent but also changed qualitat

ively. To start with, China today exports an increasing volume of high-quality goods to the US. Considered as the “wo

rld’s factory” and a country with a very high savings rate, China has built huge foreign exchange reserves and greatl

y improved its trade environment. And thanks mainly to China’s manufacturing prowess, Sino-US trade has ri

sen from $2.5 billion in 1979 to $633.52 billion in 2018, an increase of 253.4 times which is unprecedented in history.

Sino-US trade and economic relations have not been beneficial to Beijing alone, as inexpensive

but quality Chinese products have met the rising demand of the American people for affordable and relia

ble goods. Economists generally believe that Chinese products, which are good in qual

ity and low in price, help the US to keep inflation in check, and an average American family to save at least $800 a year.

nd no one outside Mueller’s circle has any idea what his

  report — expected to be delivered to Attorney General William Barr soon — will say about the President’s conduct.

  But Thursday’s events did raise some political and legal questions about the ambition of Mueller’s prosecutors, their tactics whe

n confronted by a skeptical judge and the credibility being placed in Cohen’s deeply damaging testimony against Trump last week.

  In the win-loss calculation that has characterized Trump’s life, the President can extract some advant

age from the surprising courtroom drama. Anything that be spun as a blow to the special counsel will be seized on in Trump’s co

nservative media echo chamber in the campaign to bolster the President’s standing among core GOP voters that is critical to his long-term

viability.Mueller’s team had asked for a 19-25 year jail term for a tax and finance fraud conviction arising from Manafort’s lavi

sh lifestyle as a sharp suited uber-lobbyist who spun his dark arts for pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine.

  That would have sent the 69-year-old Manafort to jail likely for the rest of his life. But the less than four year term shoc

ked many legal observers and sparked looks of astonishment among prosecutors in Judge T.S. Ellis’s courtroom.

  The judge’s leniency does not change the fact of Manafort’s convic

tion by a jury of his peers. A judge in Washington, who has been less well exposed toward Ma

nafort, will sentence him next week in a separate case, in which he has been accused of lying to Mueller and breaching a plea deal.
