Recently, there is a new non-tariff barrier named ‘green trade barrier’ in the international trade area. Green barrier is a special trade barrier with strict environmental standards and other environmental requirements as its main content. With the worsening of environment, many countries pay more attention to the environmental protection. However, according to the economic levels of different countries, great differences exist in environment standards of these countries which have resulted in the appearance of green trade barrier as trade protection. It is just like some former trade protectionism policies and influences the international trade greatly.
With the fast development of international economy, the developed countries, in order to protect national market and consumer, are adopting various kinds of green trade barrier constantly in the trade of agricultural products. These kinds of method have already had serious impact on agricultural products trade of our country. By far, the markets of our agricultural products have mainly located in the developed countries and some new industrial countries and territories. In China, the trade of agricultural products, such as the trade of garden products, aquaculture, and livestock products, got balance in general. Those products rely on the environment and are easy to be rejected by the green trade barrier of developed countries. In recent years, it has been often reported that our exporters have sustained losses due to green trade barrier. Therefore, in the current world trade, it is necessary for Chinese export enterprises to study the green trade barrier in order to avoid it. We must comply with the sustained development strategy, bring the government, non-governmental, and enterprises organization’s function into play. Only by doing so, can green trade barriers be bridgeable. In order to fuse our…...

... to green trade barrier. Therefore, in the current world trade, it is necessary for Chinese export enterprises to study the green trade barrier in order to avoid it. We must comply with the sustained development strategy, bring the government, non-governmental, and enterprises organization’s function into play. Only by doing so, can green trade barriers be bridgeable. In order to fuse our agriculture into the world market and promote our modernization of agriculture, we must overcome the retardation on the sustainable development of our agriculture from the green trade barrier by adopting the new mode of recycling agriculture. Meanwhile, the active countermeasures we have taken can also bring us opportunities. Then the natural resources and biological environment can be protected. So taking a fresh look on the green barrier, making wiser policies and setting up more effective countermeasures should be on the highest of the agenda in order to uproot further negative effects on our business activities....

...本科毕业设计(论文) 外文翻译(附外文原文) 学 院: 信息科学与工程学院 课题名称: 电子密码锁设计 专业(方向): 电子信息科学与技术 班 级: 电信科技08-1班 学 生: 朱 日 科 指导教师: 陈 飞 日 期: 2012年5月10日 原 文 Hardware description language In electronics, a hardware description language or HDL is any language from a class of computer languages, specification languages, or modeling languages for formal description and design of electronic circuits, and most commonly, digital logic. It can describe the circuit's operation, its design and organization, and tests to verify its operation by means of simulation.[citation needed] HDLs are standard text-based expressions of the spatial and temporal structure and behaviour of electronic systems. Like concurrent programming languages, HDL syntax and semantics include explicit notation for expressing concurrency. However, in contrast to most software programming languages, HDLs also include an explicit notion of time, which is a primary attribute of hardware. Languages whose only characteristic is to express circuit connectivity between a hierarchy of blocks are properly classified as netlist languages used on electric computer-aided design (CAD). HDLs are used to write executable specifications for hardware. A program designed to implement the underlying semantics of the language statements and simulate the progress of time provides the hardware designer with the...

... thing for any government. Secondly, tariffs provide a source of revenue to the government though consumers are denied their right to enjoy goods at a cheaper price. There are specific tariffs that are a one-time tax levied on goods. This is different for goods in different categories. There are Ad Valorem tariffs that are a ploy to keep imported goods pricier. This is done to protect domestic producers of similar products. Non-Tariff Barriers Placing tariff barriers are not enough to protect domestic industries, countries resort to non-tariff barriers that prevent foreign goods from coming inside the country. One of these non-tariff barriers is the creation of licenses. Companies are granted licenses so that they can import goods and services. But enough restrictions are imposed on new entrants so that there is less competition and very few companies actually are able to import goods in certain categories. This keeps the amount of goods imported under check and thus protects domestic producers. Import Quotas is another trick used by countries to place a barrier to the entry of foreign goods in certain categories. This allows a government to set a limit on the amount of goods imported in a particular category. As soon as this limit is crossed, no importer can import further quantities of the goods. Non-tariff barriers are sometimes retaliatory in nature as when a country is antagonistic to a particular country and does not wish to allow goods from that country to be...

... whether a product meets foreign demand. The party takes all the risk and handles all the exporting details in some cases without even the awareness of the original seller. (Export strategy, accessed 2010) Example: In Zimbabwe when there were shortages of commodities, traders in Zambia for example, were able to take advantage of the situation and started obtaining consumer goods from manufacturers and exporting to them. Advantages A company’s product becomes known overseas making their sales and profits increase and they gain market share abroad and their production capacity is utilised. Less risk taking on the part of the original firm as they do not their commit resources. Disadvantages The exporter has no control over quality of goods or supply efficiency and availability of the goods from manufacturers. Exporters do not have full knowledge of products and are not able to adopt products to local markets without manufacturer’s involvement. 4.1.1(b) Seeking out domestic buyers who represent foreign end users or customers These buyers form a large market for a wide variety of goods and services, and include; foreign corporations, general contractors, foreign trading companies, foreign government agencies, foreign distributors and retailers, and domestic companies as well as purchase for exports.

.... She will soon finish paying off previously incurred ones. DOFS has, in effect, liberated them from bondage to their creditors. Vested interests? Mayor Davin and DOFS project manager Carlos Ortiz tell me that one of their more formidable early challenges had been lack of support from the DA, whose current pet program on promoting input-intensive hybrid rice is seen by government technicians to be subverted by DOFS. And yet farmers I met attest that their yields hardly increased using the government's imported hybrid rice seeds, while having had to spend more on inputs. DOFS made more economic sense for them. One farmer expressed suspicion that hybrid rice is being pushed because some people are making money from seed procurements. True or not, DOFS deserves much more than just token support from DA. Magsaysay is showing that sustainable agriculture works-and could improve a lot of people's lives while sustaining our environment. Truly a win-win situation. Copyright 2005 Inquirer News Service.

Influence in Everyday Chinese Politics

...Influence in Everyday Politics The Chinese political realm differs vastly from liberal democracies that people in the west are familiar with. The statement “in China today, the general public have no political influence” is complicated by a focus on everyday politics. Chinese citizens do participate in everyday politics, although not in the direct way found in democratic nations. The power of social media in China is allowing internet users to express dissatisfaction with the government, even in the face of censorship. The power of social media and its political influence is illustrated through the 2011 Wenzhou train collision case, which ignited outrage from online communities and led to the exposure of corruption amongst government officials. Typically, when a person thinks about the western concept of political influence, voting in a democratic election comes to mind. For the average citizen, their vote represents their voice in politics. If a person is not satisfied with the government or want to voice their concerns, they are able to freely criticize the state or engage in peaceful protests. They may also participate in politics by joining a political party or even forming a new party. The western concept of political influence centers on free speech and acting directly to affect politics. The concept of political influence by the general public in China is vastly different from western norms. The political system in China is not a liberal democracy, thus many...

... operation phase of the power plant, permanent jobs are created in areas such as administration, operation, maintenance, service contracting, water maintenance, spare parts and equipment, and solar field parts replenishment. CSP plants generate an estimated 94 operation and management jobs per 100 MW, whereas conventional coal and natural gas plants of the same size generate between 10 and 60 permanent jobs. Despite the greater job creation, the total operation and maintenance cost for a CSP plant is approximately 30% lower than for a natural gas plant, even before the cost of natural gas is included (Stoddard et al., 2006). The NREL estimates that an investment of $13 billion dollars in the installation of 4,000 MW of CSP, as expected based on the current and planned CSP plant development across the United States, will create 145,000 jobs in construction and 3,000 direct permanent jobs (Stoddard et al., 2006). Although the majority of the construction and operation and management jobs would be located in the Southwest, there will also be significant gains in manufacturing jobs, which would likely be more widely distributed across the country. Government support also plays a vital role in the development of new solar technologies. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, receives federal funding to partner 58 with private companies to improve the quality and cost-competitiveness of many renewable energy products, including CSP, and to perform......

Export of Chinese High-Speed Train

... still around 80 to 110 kilometers per hour and that of cargo trains around 70 kilometers per hour. The year 2002 witnessed accomplishment of the self-designed and constructed Qinhuangdao-Shenyang high-speed railway on which trains traveled at 200 km per hour. In November 2002, the DJJ2 “China Star” Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) reached a record trial speed of 321.5 km per hour, so affirming that China had mastered EMU design capability. In January 2004, the State Council passed, after due deliberation, the Medium-and Long-term Railway Network Plan. The plan was modified in October 2008, so creating the blueprint for China’s high-speed railway expansion. According to the new scheme, by 2020 the national railway mileage will reach more than 120,000 km, of which 16,000 km will be exclusively passenger train lines. The focus will be on the construction of eight railways across China’s territory whose transportation arteries will connect the whole country. A batch of inter-city high speed railways will be simultaneously constructed in populous economically developed areas. To achieve this goal, the Ministry of Railways set down the fundamental principle of “bringing in cutting-edge technology to combine with domestic design and production, and create China’s own brand.” A new program operation mode would at the same time introduce a small amount of overseas products assembled with domestically manufactured components. April 2007 marked Chinese railways’ sixth......

Existing Product to Go Green

...Grade Received - "A" Address the following: Pick an existing consumer product. Pitch an idea to the product’s manufacturer to position it as Green. Sell the concept as if you are the marketing executive for the Green company looking to win the account. Identify your competition, and discuss how your new and improved product is poised to compete (3 paragraphs total for the post). In this discussion I will attempt to pick an existing consumer product and pitch an idea to product manufacturers to position it as Green by selling the concept as if I were the marketing executive for the Green Company looking to win the account. I will do so by identifying their competition and discuss how my new and improved product is poised to compete. I had a talk with a good friend of mine about two weeks ago about what some companies can do in order to go green. I will give some insight on what it was we conversation about in relation to this discussion. The type of consumer product that I chose is not necessarily the product, but what is used in order for consumers to enjoy their product. What I am talking about our aluminum cans. All of the major soft drink and alcohol industries use them in order for their consumers to enjoy their liquid refreshments. Not all people recycle and because of that there is a better way for these companies to reduce the amount of metal that are not recycled for these cans. Because I am hungry, I cannot just settle on trying to win one account but...

Green Barrier to China's Export

...Introduction As the world economy moves towards globalization, China has become more open to trade with other countries. Its international trade volume had risen from US$20.6 in 1978 to US$1,422 billion in 2005 (Wang & Liu, 2007). Since China’s exports mainly focus on the labor intensive and resource intensive industries, this exports pattern causes a serious environmental problem in China. Green barriers become a kind of emerging non-tariff barrier which is used for the developed countries to protect their production and economic development in recent years. The main forms of green barriers include green tariff and market access, green packaging and labeling requirements, green technology standards, Green health inspection system, environmental costs and green subsidy system (China west products, 2011). China’s agricultural, mechanical and electrical products are all facing green barriers, such as pollution, noise, safety standards and recycling requirements (Wang & Liu, 2007). How to cope with green barriers becomes the biggest challenge that China faces to continuously expand its exports. The purpose of this paper is to address and analyze the green barrier issue in China and to provide my ideas and suggestions on China’s exports related to green barrier. My following analysis is mainly based on the positive effects of green barriers and the specific example of China’s tea exports as well as three policies to cope with green barriers. I feel confident that you...

Influence of Chinese Culture on World Markets

...Influence of Chinese Culture on World Markets China has one of the largest populations in the world, it stands to reason cultural beliefs and trends would hold sway with many of the major manufacturers who sell internationally. Markets such as music, movies, television and video games are all affected by the preferences of one of the largest consuming countries on Earth. If a certain type of movie is popular the time, it’s only reasonable that the movie producers would cater to that. The influences are wide spread and well defined in nearly all forms of pop culture. China, as a nation, is growing very rapidly, both economically and in terms of population. They’re spending power has grown nearly 57% in the last five years alone. This allows them to invest in foreign markets on an immense scale, and therefore hold considerable sway over what is produced and distributed. Industry is moving East, and as such, so is a lot capital which fuels this investment. The continuing growth is expected to be at least 30% in the next year for most major industries. Movies with martial arts sequences tend be very popular. Even if the actors are not themselves of Asian descent, the fighting styles are visually interesting, and therefore the movies do well. Actors like Jet Li, Jacky Chan and many, many more have revolutionized movie making by implementing different forms of karate, tai kwan do and other fighting styles. Movies like The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The...
