US President Donald Trump, in the name of “national sec

urity”, signed an executive order on May 15 that led the US Department of Commerce to put Huawei and its affilia

tes on an Entity List, which would restrict the sale or transfer of US technologies to the company.

Craig Allen, president of the council, said many of its members are suppliers to Huaw

ei, and all of them have been impacted by the Department of Commerce’s move.

Founded in 1973, the council represents around 200 US companie

s doing business with China, including Apple and Microsoft. It also includes chipmakers Inte

l and Qualcomm, which have said they would stop offering supplies to Huawei until further notice.

The members will follow US law, but there is a cost associated with that, Allen told China Daily.

The Belt and Road Initiative is now running for a coupl

of years and has achieved success even in Europe, but it is not finished yet and it should be a win-wi

China is Germany’s biggest trading partner, so I think there will be a good future for the two countries.

The Belt and Road Initiative has been a very successful integration proj

delivery staff facing pay cutsy to make deliveries in Jinzh

hinese e-commerce giant JD is reducing salaries for its delivery staff across the country by a

dopting a commission-based payment scheme and reducing benefits, in a bid to reduce costs and boost margins

after three senior executives of the company announced their resignation.

JD will replace its couriers’ basic salaries with commission-based compens

ation starting from June, and lower contributions to employees’ housing funds fr

om 12 percent to 7 percent, a move that could result in wage reductions, according to media reports.

JD Logistics, the logistics arm of the Beijing-based tech heavyweight, responded via it

s official Sina Weibo account, saying that as the number of orders from individual clients increases, th

e company is looking to adopt an incentive plan to reward outstanding employees.

It said that the company’s deliverymen in the second and third-tier cit

ies of southern China could earn more than 8,00

0 yuan ($1,191) under the current pilot scheme. “We expect to add more than 10,000

positions this year as JD Logistics is providing services to more industry customers,” JD said.

She said women, and men too, want someone who can

 earn a decent salary, but many women now rank other factors higher, such as willingness to share housework and child care.

Coontz said that the increasing inequality in society means that ma

ny low-income individuals — male or female — aren’t seen as good marriage prospects.

“Often, couples who are for each other will cohabit in order to save money or explore th

eir relationship more,” she said. “But they hesitate to marry until they feel they h

ave enough economic security to relieve them of the chronic stress that undermines relationships.”

As women are becoming more self-reliant, the gap between their pay and men’s has been decreasing over the past century.

According to a journal published last year by sociologists Daniel Schneider, Kristen Harknett and Matthew Stimpson, the decl

ine of marriage rates is related to both men’s declining economic resources and the rising rate of incarceration.

According to him, the country’s accommodation sharin

ng industry will maintain high-speed growth this year, and might make a breakthro

ugh in legalization. For instance, owners of short-term rental houses will have a lega

l identity, and safety standard of the shared homes will be in accordance with that of hotels.

“However, there is no law to regulate home-sharing services at present, which is the biggest challeng

es we face,” Yang said, adding that the Chinese government has a positive attitude toward the sharing economy.

In October, the State Council released an action plan for 2018-20 to further stimulate domestic consumption.

Market access should be relaxed in several service-related fields, such as tourism, and efforts to boost the develo

pment of short-term rental services, such as rental apartments and guesthouses, are encouraged.

Launched in 2011, Tujia lists 1.4 million online homes, including apartments, home

stays and villas across 400 Chinese cities and more than 1,000 overseas destinations.
