Countries strive to replicate historic Silk Road’s world-changi

China would like to make joint efforts with Italy to revive the ancient Silk Road and bring more benefits for the people, President Xi Jinping said on Friday.

Xi made the remark while speaking to the media with Italian President Sergio Mattarella

in Rome. Xi left Beijing on Thursday for state visits to Italy, Monaco and France. His trip will conclude on Tuesday.

The ancient Silk Road boosted interconnectivity between Asia and Europe, and it encouraged exchanges between civilizations, Xi said.

Xi told reporters that his discussion with Mattarella was fruitful and the two leaders reached a wide range of consensuses.

China and Italy should connect their developmental strategies and enhance cooperation in such areas as infra

structure, seaports, logistics and maritime transport while promoting practical cooperation under the Belt and Road, Xi said.

China would like to increase trade and investment with Italy, Xi said, adding that Ita

ly is welcome at the second China International Import Expo as an honored guest. China would like to import more prod

ucts of high quality from Italy, and more domestic companies are being encouraged to invest in Italy, he said.

The 10 percent deduction rate, which applies to buyers of ag

ricultural goods, will be cut to 9 percent, said the statement.

“The VAT reform is not simply lowering the tax rate, but focusing on the integration with the overall tax reform. It has continued to ma

ke progress toward the long-term goal of establishing a modern VAT system, and it also leaves room for cutting the number of VAT brac

kets from three to two in the future,” said Wang Jianfan, director of the department of taxation under the Ministry of Finance.

To implement the statutory taxation principle, China will also accelerate legislation to deepen VAT reform, Wang said.

The joint statement came after Premier Li Keqiang said on Wednesday that China will imp

lement a series of measures to cut VAT rates and ease the tax burden in almost all industries.

Earlier this month, Li said in his 2019 Government Work Repo

rt that VAT reform was key to improving the tax system and achieving better income distribution.

hina military threat’ is a fallacy: Ministry of National Defense

The Chinese military strongly opposes playing up the fallacy of the so-called “China’s militar

y threat” by some US military officials, as such a zero-sum game and Cold War mentality is not cond

ucive to the sound development of bilateral military relations, a Chinese spokesman said on Friday.

“China has followed a path of peaceful development and has firmly implemente

d a national defense policy which is defensive in nature,” said Wu Qian, spokesman of the Ministry of Na

tional Defense, adding that a growing Chinese military will better help maintain world peace.

He said the Chinese side has noticed that defense authorities in the United States often do som

e “selfish calculations” for more in the military budget by hyping threats from other countries.

“Such practice is short-sighted, and very dangerous,” he said. “We urge the US side to give up the Col

d War mentality and look at China’s development of national defense and military in a rational way.”

And if parliament *actually* says what it wantsad to ask, didn’t yo

  It’s very likely that any consensus that could be reached across the Commons would be a softer Brexit than the one May is currently pursuing.

  That, I am afraid, is still a fairly open-ended answer. It might mean the need to renegotiate, which would mean a longer exten

sion, which would mean being in the EU elections, which could mean a second referendum, ultimately.

  The key point here is that cross-party consensus might soun

d nice, but on an issue as divisive as Brexit, it’s as likely as anything to blow up both main parties.

  While things are far from rosy and three weeks is not enough t

ime to sort much, it’s worth noting that while Brexit might not be going terribly well, the last thr

ee years have been a huge learning curve for the entire UK. We know more now than we did.

  So while the next bit of the Brexit process might look crunchy, the decisions made in the coming days will not be made lightly.

Xi made the remarks in a signed article published in the

Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera on Wednesday ahead of his European tour, with visits to Italy, Monaco and France.

Theresa May asks EU for Brexit delayIn his press conference, Don

the President of the European Council, made it clear that the EU would only

approve a delay to the Brexit process if the House of Commons approves the Withdra

wal Agreement signed by Theresa May last year. That suggests a third “meaningful vote” must be held in Parliament next week.

another vote. Earlier this week he ruled that the government could not hold repeated votes on the same issue without substantive changes.

The government will hope that Tusk’s statement will be sufficient to satisfy Bercow’s demand.

After that, there’s the question of persuading MPs to support the deal.

Theresa May lost her first meaningful vote by a historic margin of 230 in January, and lost her second last week by 149.

May faces an uphill challenge to pass the deal a third time – 75 MPs will have to change their mind

s. The Prime Minister will hope that the looming and clear threat of no deal will force opposition MPs to support her deal.

The trouble is, there’s a small group of hardcore Brexit-supporting MPs o

n her own side who would be happy to see the UK crash out without a deal – a clean bre

ak from the EU with no complications. Quite how she persuades them to get onside is unclear.
