The yuan’s internationalization will also enable domestic enterprises to avail of both domest

ization of production factors. Therefore, China’s plan for the internationalization of the yuan should be m

eticulous. For example, it could formulate a middle-and long-term plan for Eurasian regional financial co

operation and set up a Eurasian information sharing mechanism for the yuan’s internationalization.

China should also expedite the process of economic restructuring, and take steps to lessen the impact of the US’ monetary pol

icy on its economy as well as reduce its dependence on exports for economic development.

f on additional tariffs and rapidly conclude negotiations with China, including lifti

ng the existing Section 301 tariffs in exchange for China removing its retaliatory 25 percent tariff on US soybeans.

The United States announced Wednesday that it would raise tariffs on $200

billion worth of Chinese goods from 10 percent to 25 percent, effective on May 10.

China on Wednesday expressed regrets over the planned measures in a statement, saying “Ch

counterparts in the fight against endangered animal smuggling in the coming months, said a senior local customs officer.

“Top priorities will be given to big cases: major smuggling gangs, channels and networks,” said Zheng
