Holden is positive about the future of the relationship. “Honestly, both countries need each other,” he said.
“We need to be able to sell products in China. The Chinese population is wanting the goods that we can
produce here. China also gives us a workforce in some of our industries, which makes them com
petitive globally,” said Holden, who opened Missouri’s first trade office in China during his term from 2001 to 2005.
“I think there are advantages and opportunities on both sides if we ca
n get people to sit down and really look at how do we put these pieces together,” Holden said.
He listed infrastructure, energy, education and business-to-bu
siness relationships as potential areas of cooperation between China and the US, an]
d he suggested such cooperation could start from subnational bilateral exchanges.’
Eight life-size Terracotta Warriors from China are among the works sho
wn as part of a rare exhibition being hosted by the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
The exhibition, Terracotta Warriors: Guardians of Immortality/Cai Guo-Qiang: The Transient Landscape, runs from May 24 to Oct 13.
It offers a new perspective on China’s traditional culture with more than 160 exhibits
on show, including the Qin emperor’s Terracotta Warriors, which were discovered in 1974 in China’s nor
thwestern Shaanxi province, and are widely described as one of the wonders of the world.
The exhibition features eight warriors and two life-size horses from the im
perial army, as well as two half-size replicas of bronze chariots, each drawn by four horses.

“I’m not able to tell you exactly what the costs will be; it differs from company to company,” said Allen.
“But clearly, from a corporate perspective, this Department
of Commerce action has created costs and has escalated the uncertainty quite a bit.”
Asked to comment on some voices in the US calling for the “decoupling” of the two countries, especially in the technology sect

Zhang, a member of the CPC, was a soldier of Brigade 359 of the Northwest Field Army, o
ne of the main forces of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army during the Liberation War between 1945 and 1949.
He was honored by the Northwest Field Army several times for performing meritorious deeds as he braved enemy fire. He
was twice given the honorary title of Combat Hero. When he retired from the PLA, Zhang chose to work in the pov
erty-stricken mountainous areas in Laifeng, a remote county in Hubei province. He dedicated his life to the peo
ple, holding posts ranging from community-level government official to deputy manager of a local bank.
Ren on Tuesday expressed continued willingness to collaborate with US partners in the future.
Ren’s confidence lies in Huawei’s capacity to serve its customer
s under “any circumstances”, and has the support of its growing clientele at home and abroad.
“Last week, in public bidding by China Mobile, we won contracts to build 5G networks for 37 of the 40 cities,” Ren dis
closed. “Our capacity for mass production is enormous, and will not drop much with US restrictions”.
The otherwise low-profile Huawei leader made no secret about his pride
in his company’s technologies: “Huawei’s 5G will absolutely not be affected. When it c
omes to 5G technologies, others will definitely not catch up in two or three years”.
That was why the confident Ren said the 90-day exemption Washington declared on Monday was dispensable.
The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a grea
t extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of econ
omics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.
The US administration’s often competing and clashing objectives－though m
any of them are understandable－cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the U
S hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.
A dream called sustainable reindustrialization
Yet the US expends huge amounts of its resources just to maintain its mo
netary hegemony and thus ensure its financial sector offers higher pay and return on inv
estment compared with the real economy sectors, which helps it to maintain its advantage in

He said Asia’s emphasis on “respect for authority, respect for the environment and the discipli
ne to control the use of resources” will also see Asian leaders pursuing a more eco-friendly dev
elopment path and honor their commitments to the Paris climate agreement.
“If there is harmony, discipline, stability and the primacy of family and com
munity over the individual, then any problem can be easily addressed,” Santarita said.
With 1,000 days to go before the 2022 Winter Olympics, pr
eparations are well underway for a successful and sustainable event.
