Chinese exporters receive subsidies for constructing plants, purchasing equipment, reimbursement of start up losses and training personnel, etc. Local and national Chinese governments create new companies to start or expand new industries. Examples are wind power, lithium batteries for electric cars, LED lighting, new flat panel screens for TV, iPads, cell phones, etc. The national government frequently enlists provincial governments and banks to arrange the financing, acquisition of land, buildings and equipment, management, etc. for these new enterprises. China does practice this extensively and does not consider it an unfair trade practice. But when the U.S. does it they scream unfair subsidies.
China also has not established controls over the quality and safety of products, medicines, foods, etc. Its manufacturers therefore do not incur the costs of complying with such safety and quality rules and regulations. As a result, for more than a decade, the U.S. and other countries have received contaminated milk, drugs, toothpaste, food and other items. These include toxic toys and odorous dry wall6 that was so bad home buyers had to surrender their homes. Even the horrible August bullet train accident in China was attributed to defective equipment. The Chinese people themselves are now protesting the poor and unsafe products being sold domestically. By not taking the necessary actions to establish regulations and inspections to insure the safety and quality of its products China has caused the illness and deaths of hundreds of thousands of people at home and abroad. This represents another area of unfair trade practices.

China fires SIX WARNINGS to US Navy in South China Sea ‘This is China...LEAVE IMMEDIATELY’
THE Chinese military told a US Navy plane flying over the highly-disputed island in the South China Sea to “leave immediately”.

The US Navy P-8A Poseidon jet was flying at 16,500 feet to get a view of low-lying coral reefs that have been turned into garrisons with five-storey buildings, large radar installations, power plants and runways sturdy enough to carry large military aircraft.

During the flight that was giving journalists from CNN a rare look at the islands, the crew was warned six times by the Chinese military to get out of their territory.

A voice said: “US military aircraft, this is China ... leave immediately and keep out to avoid any misunderstanding.”

Each time the aircraft was challenged by the Chinese military, the US Navy crew's response was the same.
The repsonse was: "I am a sovereign immune United States naval aircraft conducting lawful military activities beyond the national airspace of any coastal state.

"In exercising these rights as guaranteed by international law, I am operating with due regard for the rights and duties of all states."
CNN was granted the chance to see how the Chinese government is rapidly expanding its militarisation efforts from a US reconnaissance plane when the harsh threat was issued.

The US Navy jet had flown over four key artifical islands in the Spratly chain where China has built up fortifications: Subi Reef, Fiery Cross Reef, Johnson Reef and Mischief Reef.

Before the crew were warned, the jet's sensors picked on 86 vessels on the Subi Reef that included Chinese coast guard ships. On the Fiery Cross Reefs rows of hangars stood alongside a lenghty runway.

LT. Lauren Callen who lead the air combat crew on the Navy flight said: "It was surprising to see airports in the middle of the ocean."

Beijing has said it is necessary for the Asian powerhouse to keep growing its military presence in the South Chine Sea in order to protects its sovereignty.

China also blames Washington and its allies for tensons in the region.

It says that the regular US Navy patrols and flyovers of the South China Sea are efforts for the US to provoke China and therefore the country is justified in increasing its military presence.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said: "By playing up the so-called China's militarization in the South China Sea, certain people in the US are staging a farce of a thief crying 'stop thief'.

"It is self-evident to a keener eye that who is militarizing the South China Sea."

Parts of the South China Sea are claimed by Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei.

The sea spans 3.6million square-kilometres and Beijing's claims extend more than one thousand kilometres from its southernmost province, which is almost the entirey of the waters.

The United Nations has estimated that a third of global shipping passes through the waters.

The South China Sea is also believed to be rich in oil and natural gas reserves that have yet to be explored.

China reinforced its claims by contructing the artifical islands which are militarised with airfields and radar equipment.

In April the military placed missiles on the Spratly island chain during naval exercises.

This breaks a promise by President Xi Jinping to then US-President Barack Obama in 2015 that the Chinese govenrment would not militarise the artifical islands.

Experts claim that time is running out to challenge China's claims in the South China Sea.

Admiral Philip Davidson said in April that China is already very firmly entrenched.

He said: "China is now capable of controlling the South China Sea in all scenarios short of war with the United States."

The latest US commodity exchange data, which is more relevant than labor market statistics, has been released, which are quite unreliable, and the various methodologies show that the reality looks more beautiful than it really is. But due to the latest figures on trading with foreign partners, one should wonder whether Trump's strategy works and whether he is a winner?

At first glance it really looks like that. The trade deficit has not only fallen to 2016, but also showed the fastest drop in 10 years, if we take a total reduction of three months.
Thus, exports of goods and services have risen at a record rate and surpassed the growth of imports.

There is a noticeable supply of overseas partners, which has grown almost twice, while in the money sense, exports amounted to $ 4.1 billion. The problem is that China is introducing customs duties on soy today, and this can ruin an important item of American exports.

The overall picture looks to Trumpa and according to this data politically it successfully solves the tasks you set up. But there are also negative trends that little people pay attention to.

It is unknown in which sector export growth has been realized but it is known that the trade deficit with its main competitor - China - has not only not decreased but increased from $ 30.8 billion to $ 32 billion in the same period.

The U.S. military will not retain anything that they might seize in an invasion of the islands in the South China Sea, for the simple fact that on a long-term basis it is impossible for them to adequately send provisions to their soldiers stationed on those islands logistically.

China has already won in the South China Sea, or else the Americans wouldn't have disinvited the Chinese military to participate in the joint naval exercises in the Pacific for the current year.
