  • Hong Kong, southern China clean up after super typhoon news

    The financial hub of Hong Kong began clearing up on Monday after being battered by one of the strongest typhoons in recent years, with financial markets and offices operating as normal. Super typhoon Mangkhut, with hurricane-force winds well over 200 kilometers per hour (124 miles/h), had barreled past the northern tip of the Philippines, killing at least 50 people.

  • Volvo asks US government for tariff exemption for China-built XC60 crossover SUV news

    Volvo is the latest automaker to ask the U.S. government for an exemption from steep tariffs on Chinese-made SUVs, Reuters reported Friday. Buick asked trade officials in July for an exemption from a 25-percent tariff on its China-made Envision SUV earlier this year, although Volvo's interest in seeking relief from the measure is far greater. In August, the XC60 accounted for more than 31 percent of overall sales for Volvo, according to the automaker. Since May, the U.S. has imported most of its Volvo XC60 models from China, although the automaker originally imported them from its factory in Sweden when the car was launched. Unlike Buick, which petitioned for an exemption for 40,000 of its China-built Envision crossover, Volvo is seeking an unlimited exemption for XC60 crossovers built in China, according to Reuters.  Earlier this year, Volvo opened its first North American production facility near Charleston, S.C., where it builds the S60 sedan and eventually the XC90 full-size crossover. DON'T MISS: Global trade war prompts Volvo to put brakes on its IPO In its letter to the U.S. Trade Representative, Volvo said it could eventually build the XC60 crossover in America, but said that a proposed 25-percent tariff would be unfairly passed to consumers. When Volvo opened its North American plant in June, CEO Hakan Samuelsson said that steep tariffs could threaten jobs at that plant and that eliminating global trade restrictions was the "right way" for the auto industry. “We will export as many cars from this factory as we will import in the U.S...That is a good example of how trade with cars should work in an open and free economy,” he said in June.

  • South Korean president jets to Pyongyang for 'heart-to-heart' nuclear talks with Kim Jong-un news

    Moon Jae-in, South Korea’s president, will seek to revive stalled talks on nuclear disarmament between the US and North Korea when he jets into Pyongyang on Tuesday morning for a three-day summit with Kim Jong-un. Mr Moon will be the first South Korean leader to visit North Korea’s capital in 11 years and he will be accompanied by an entourage of  senior business executives and K-pop stars as he attempts to bolster economic, cultural and security ties.  He is expected to land at 10am (2am BST), and may be greeted personally by Kim at the airport before proceeding to the negotiating table and a banquet in the evening.  On the eve of his departure for his third direct meeting with Kim this year, Mr Moon pledged to hold “heart-to-heart talks” to push for better ties between Pyongyang and Washington.  “What I want to achieve is peace. I mean irreversible, permanent peace that is not shaken by international politics,” Mr Moon said during a meeting with top advisers, according to his office.  But Im Jong-seok, his chief-of-staff, played down expectations that the summit will produce a major breakthrough on the process of denuclearisation, which has plunged into a deadlock since the historic meeting between Kim and Donald Trump, the US president, in Singapore in June.  Mr Moon will push for a second summit between Kim and Mr Trump, where he believes progress can be made on disarmament. His aides revealed that he wants to find “a middle ground” between the US position on denuclearisation and the North’s request for assurances over security and ending hostilities.  In a press briefing, Mr Im predicted that the summit would take “meaningful” steps to “fundamentally remove the danger of armed clashes and ease fears of war” between the two Koreas, moving them closer to formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War with a peace treaty. Proposals could include the disarmament of sections of the jointly controlled border area or the removal of front-line guard posts.  Trump-Kim summit in pictures: Best photos from Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un's meeting in Singapore While the moves would be significantly more modest than Kim giving up his nukes, analysts say they are key to building an atmosphere of trust that will avoid future military escalations on the Korean Peninsula.  “Most of the crises around North Korea have been started by some kind of small-scale military exchange on the border that has threatened a larger war,” said Joe Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, a global security foundation.  “Anything you can do to decrease that possibility – moving artillery pieces and physical forces back - would be good for decreasing tensions,” he told The Telegraph.  “Are we getting closer to our goal of denuclearising the Korean Peninsula? No. But we have a dramatically reduced risk of war on the Korean Peninsula compared to this time last year.”
