Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 20, 2019

China's chief negotiator said Wednesday night that he was "cautiously optimistic" about reaching a phase one trade deal with the U.S., even as talks continue to stretch out and tensions over Hong Kong and other issues rise.

Liu He made the comments in a speech in Beijing, according to people who attended the dinner and asked not to be identified. He also explained China's plans for reforming state enterprises, opening up the financial sector, and enforcing intellectual property rights -- issues which are at the core of U.S. demands for change in China's economic system.

Separately to the speech, he told one of the attendees that he was "confused" about the U.S. demands, but was confident the first phase of an agreement could be completed nevertheless.

China Export is not CE: a symbol to cause confusion

...In recent years we've got used to the fact that if a product bears CE mark, it is safe. The reason for this assumption is the goods' compliance with EU standards. Unfortunately, there exists a much similar mark which the majority of consumers and even sellers understand as CE mark of the European Union. However, this mark symbolizes something quite different.

What's behind China Export marking?

This mark means that the product was manufactured in China, and means "China Export". This similarity is not a chance coincidence. It expresses the aggressive approach and is used to confuse European consumers.

The China Export mark is not registered, it does NOT confirm positive test results and is placed by Chinese manufacturers arbitrarily....


Is the China Export symbol little more than a negotiating tactic, or is it what it seems - an attempt to ride upon the integrity behind the similar CE symbol?
