Beijing’s Chaoyang Theatre has for decades been the capital’s go-to destination for el
ectrifying and awe-inspiring Chinese acrobatics performances, entertaining audiences from all over the globe.上海后花园
Located in the city’s Chaoyang district, the theater, which opened in 1984, has evolved from being a
上海后花园venue for dance dramas and opera to a must-visit destination awarded as a national center of culture in 2001.
After years of refinements, acrobatics was eventually designated as the theater’s perman

Acrobatics has a rich history in China. In ancient times, the art form was inspired by hunting and going to war. Historical documents show acrobatics first app

• What is China’s position and attitude toward Sino-US economic and trade friction?
Since some people in the US provoked the Sino-US economic and trade friction, the two sides have increasingly taken divergent approaches to this issue. That is, s上海后花园
hould it be taken as a zero-sum game or based on mutual benefit, being addressed through confrontation or cooperation? Should the countries stay enc
losed or open up, maintaining a monopolistic or competitive market? Should the countries stick to unilateralism or multilateralism? All these differences are underpinned by the ulti上海后花园女神会所
mate question of whether the world is governed by the old way of hegemonism, or a new approach by building a community with a shared future for m
上海后花园女神会所ankind. China’s position and attitude toward these major fundamental issues is clear, firm and consistent.
Faced with the economic and trade friction provoked and escalated by some people in the US, China does not want a trade war. However, the country is not afra
id of a trade war and will fight one if necessary. Proceeding from safeguarding the common interests of the two countries and the world trade order, Chin上海后花园女神会所
a has responded to the concerns raised by the US with great sincerity. China overcame various difficulties, proposed practical solutions, and conducted 11 rounds of high-level ec
onomic and trade consultations with the US, which demonstrated China’s sincere desire of not fighting a trade war. How
ever, the US has continuously challenged China’s bottom line and overstepped the red line of norms governing international relations, att上海后花园女神会所
empting to sacrifice China’s rights to development and even damaging China’s sovereignty and dignity.
No matter how the situation develops, China runs its own affairs well. The fundamental way to deal with ec
onomic and trade friction is to develop itself through reform and opening-up, which China will continue to deepen.
