A Chinese resident of Washington state pled guilty in federal court to charges he attempted to ship 300 Xilinx radiation-hardened programmable semiconductor devices to an unnamed Chinese purchaser. In return for his guilty plea, Yang will remain free on his own recognizance until his sentencing June 30.  Possible flight risk, eh?

Chinese Yuan among Asia’s least-appreciating currencies: Although China’s renminbi has appreciated 4.3 percent in the last year, it was among the five least-performing currencies in Asia, and the only currency in Asia to appreciate less than half its GDP growth. “Renminbi: ‘Redback’ puts the brakes on,” (Financial Times) March 28, at http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/1c6a98d4-58ef-11e0-9b8a-00144feab49a.html

Chinese trade influence in Latin America worries U.S.

March 27, 2011
Financial Times

 

A Financial Times analysis sees renewed U.S. interest in Latin America, from President Obama’s visit to the urgent push a for free trade pacts with Colombia and Panama, as driven by China’s ever-growing presencein the region. China is now Columbia’s number two trading partner, and Brazil is alarmed that China’s cheap currency and low wages have hollowed out their manufacturing sector.

China tests U.S.-Japan alliance; Asian behemoth flexes its muscles in Japanese waters

October 6, 2010
The Washington Time p B-4

By John J. Tkacik Jr.
 

In a surprisingly uncharacteristic show of diplomatic backbone last month, the Obama administration sent an unwelcome message to Beijing: America will stand with Japan against China's unwarranted territorial claims on Okinawa's waters. The crisis began on Sept. 7, when Japan's coast guard arrested a Chinese fishing-boat captain who had deliberately rammed one of its vessels inside Japan's territorial waters in the Senkaku Islands, part of the Okinawa chain.

譚慎格:簽ECFA 台灣將失原有優勢

〔駐美特派員曹郁芬/華府二十八日報導〕美國學者譚慎格今天表示,台灣如果和中國先簽署ECFA,再和美國簽自由貿易協定(FTA),就等於為中國打開一道自由貿易的後門,讓他對支持美台簽署FTA持保留態度。
譚慎格說,台灣的產業外移現象雖早已發生,但台灣的半導體和高科技產業在兩岸簽署ECFA後,會加速往中國移轉,讓台灣失去原本的經濟優勢,而且白領階級來台灣搶工作機會的情況會增加。

台若被併吞 不符美利益

他批評,兩岸ECFA的談判太神秘,等大家看到最後結果會太晚了。
台灣人公共事務會今天在國會舉辦美台FTA座談會,邀請譚慎格與美國前亞太副助卿薛瑞福出席。

薛瑞福表示,他不反對兩岸簽署貿易協定,但談判和簽署過程應該透明,且對台灣人民有利,最重要的是,台灣要有避險計劃,不能因為ECFA完全依賴中國。

 The Rising Chinese Superpower

By John J. Tkacik, Jr.

Thank you Joan. The last time I spoke to you all here at the Dallas Public Affairs Luncheon Club was on January 16, 2006. Perhaps some of you here this afternoon remember me from four years ago -- I’m afraid that my presentation was pretty pessimistic. I confess, I had a number of skeptical -- if not hostile -- questions from you-all in the audience.
