More than 90 percenyb亚博体育APP后花园e respondents said th

d they were worried about the prospects of Hong Kong tourism in the next year.

Wong Ka-ngai, chairman of the Hong Kong Tour Guides General Unionyb亚博体育APP后花园

, said that the tourism sector saw positive data in the first half of 2019, but recent prot

ests sent it into deep recession during the July-August period, which traditionally is the high tourist season.yb亚博体育APP后花园品茶微信

A tour guide used to receive 12 to 15 tour groups per month on average in July and August in p

yb亚博体育APP后花园revious years. But this year, the protests led to mass cancellations by tour groups from the Chinese mainland, Sou

theast Asia, Europe and the United States, Wong said. Many tour guides received no groups in August, he said.

The city’s tourism sector is facing a recession worse than that during the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome outyb亚博体育APP后花园

break in 2003, said Lau Chun-yuen, chairman of the Hong Kong Certified Tour Escort Association.

Many tourism employees would use revenues earned in the high season to h

ork and life of tourism employees will be affected, which may cause a wave of employee outflow in the industry.

US toy prices may rise dyb亚博体育APP后花园e to additional tariff

Experts warn it would damage small companies as consumers pay for the hit

yb亚博体育APP后花园For the US toy industry, President Donald Trump’s threatened 10 percent tariff on

an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods starting from Sept 1 would come during the peak holiday shiyb亚博体育APP后花园女神会所

pping month, when many Chinese toy manufacturers send their products to the United States.

yb亚博体育APP后花园Though some US toy companies have come up with contingency plans, like lowering their relian

ce on manufacturing in China, many will still make the US consumer pay more if the tariffs hit.

“Hasbro will have no choice but to pass along the increased costs to our US custoyb亚博体育APP后花园

mers,” said Brian Goldner, CEO of toy company Hasbro. He said the Pawtucket, Rhode Islandbased company, the

yb亚博体育APP后花园女神会所maker of popular products such as Monopoly and GI Joe, was working to reduce its reliance on manufacturers in Chi

na, but he also said it has built up extra inventory, incurring additional storage costs, as it braces for tariffs.

It’s hard to tell whether companies will alleviate the impact of a new tariff before the holiday season arrives, Linda Bolton Weyb亚博体育APP后花园

iser, a senior research analyst at financial services firm D.A. Davidson Companies, told China Daily.

yb亚博体育APP后花园女神会所But she said that they will try to find alternative suppliers, and work with their procurement teams to optimize product mix

and sourcing options. Many also will continue to move manufacturing from China to countries like Vietnam.

“They will do as much as they can to mitigate or offset the impact of the tariffs through all the different measures, but it’s unyb亚博体育APP后花园

certain now to what extent they will be able to either partially or fully offset the impact,” Weiser said.

yb亚博体育APP后花园女神会所”The good news is that the tariff is only 10 percent, so a product-price increase of 5 percent is neede

d to keep gross profit dollars unchanged. However, the gross margin would decline,” she said.

The infiltration chargeyb亚博体育APP后花园na are baseless. But

?Thiel is seeking to leverage the annoyance of the US Department of Defense and hawk

s in the administration that Google has withdrawn from some US defense projects after a backlash from its employees.yb亚博体育APP后花园品茶微信

Google was targeted with similar accusations in March, when General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta

yb亚博体育APP后花园ff, expressed such unfounded concerns about Google in a congressional hearing.

Google has repeatedly denied any relations with the Chinese government or the Chinese military.

In response to the latest charges, Riva Sciuto, a spokeswoman for Google, said: “As we have said before, we do not work wityb亚博体育APP后花园

h the Chinese military. We are working with the US government, including the Depar

yb亚博体育APP后花园tment of Defense, in many areas including cybersecurity, recruiting and healthcare.”

It is irresponsible of the US leader to buy into Thiel’s allegations and cast aspersions

on China. Google has little business in China. But, to some extent, Thiel has just given him the excuyb亚博体育APP后花园品茶微信

se he needs to cow Google ahead of the election campaign that is looming ever closer.

yb亚博体育APP后花园The White House has growing concerns about Google’s influence ove

r internet searches and online advertising. It is reportedly mulling a crackd

own on Google for supposedly disadvantaging conservatives in search results.

But as shown by the recent controversial tweets against four congresswomeyb亚博体育APP后花园品茶微信

n by the White House, it is not going to let the truth and social niceties get in the way of its

attack on Google. As such, China has become a victim of US domestic politics, as it hayb亚博体育APP后花园品茶微信

s been put in the cross-fire between the White House and the internet giant.

The baseless charges against China do a disservice to the efforts of those working hard to hammer out the details of a trade deal.

In the run-up to the Downing Street meeting, US Secre

tary of State Mike Pompeo increased pressure over the possible future role of Chinese telec

oms firm Huawei in the British telecoms network by repeating doubts about how secure its systems are.

In April, May decided to allow Huawei to be partially involved but it was a

disputed decision, and several of the candidates to su

cceed her as prime minister have already expressed their reservations about it.

Speaking in the Netherlands, Pompeo said he urged “our allies and our partners and our friends, don’t do any

thing that would endanger our shared security interests or restrict our ability to share sensitive information”.

The global market share for Huawei witnessed an incre

?increase from 10.5 percent to 15.7 percent over the same period last year.

Huawei’s smartphone sales grew in all regions and the company did

particularly well in the European market, with sales up 69 percent.

Apple ranked third on the list with sales declining to 44.56 million and market

share down to 11.9 percent in the first quarter of 2019.

China’s smartphone vendors OPPO and Vivo ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, on th

2.7 percent decline in global smartphone sales in the first quarter of this year.

According to another market research firm IDC, shipments by Huawei increased by 50 percent to 59.1 million uni

ts in the first quarter of this year, replacing Apple to grab the second spot again since the second quarter of last year.

This year, about 90 percent of the climbers at Qomolangma are
