The foreign secretary, Hunt, has proposed reducing the rate of corporation tax paid b

More than 1,000 items of military equipment including some of the most advanced weapons and concepts are being exhibited at the Army-2019 Military an

d Technical Forum this week in Kubinka, Russia, a city about 60 kilometers west of Moscow.上海会所品茶微信

More than 1,500 enterprises and organizations are in attendance at the show, which features nearly 27,000 products and technologies. It will last until Sunday.

“This year we’ve invited delegations from over 100 countries to take part in ARMY-2019. Official meetings will be held with 70 of them on the sidelines of the forum. … The level o

上海会所品茶微信f representation of partner countries is quite high this year: Over 30 of them are headed by defense ministers, their deputies and chiefs of the general st

aff,” said Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostec, Russia’s state-owned company that specializes in the defenses and military high-tech industries.

Paul Johnson, director of the IFS, said cutting corporation tax, and another promise made by H上海会所品茶微信

unt to raise defense spending, would “leave no scope to relieve the pressure on other areas of pub上海会所

lic spending without tax rises, or a fiscal stance which risked putting debt on a rising path”.

Both Conservative leadership contenders announced this week they will bring down the barriers to talented overseas workers.

Johnson said he would make the UK “much more open” to high-skilled migrants such as scientists, while Hunt prom

ised to scrap the immigration target of keeping net migration below 100,000, which has never been met.

Hunt said: “We’re not going to be a country that changes from Little Britain int

o Little England and pulls down the shutters and says ‘Foreigners not welcome’.”

Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide follow

上海龙凤Preliminary investigations suggest the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), an autom

There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, including about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend abo

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg refused to上海龙凤

say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six-year development and cer

Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercial service by

The US’ trade deficit stems from its extremely low natio

nal savings rate and has to be compensated by other countries’ national savings, which in tu

rn adds to the trade deficit. On the other hand, China’s efficiency in the manufacturing industry makes it a lar

ge exporter of manufactured goods to the US and helps it sustain its high savings rate.

A high growth rate means higher trade deficit for US

Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumpt

ion in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of ec

onomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a sit

uation, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.
