美国与中国电信巨头中兴通讯达成协议U.S. reaches deal with Chinese telecom giant ZTE

美国和中国达成了一项协议,允许中国电信巨头中兴通讯公司继续经营,换取额外10亿美元的罚款,并同意让美国监管机构监督其运营。 中兴通讯已经因违反美国制裁向北韩和伊朗出售设备而支付了近10亿美元的罚款。 美国商务部表示,中兴通讯还必须提供4亿美元的托管服务 – 如果违反了周四的协议,将被没收。 此外,罗斯表示,美国选择的合规团队将嵌入中兴通讯,并且中国公司必须在30天内更换其董事会和管理团队。 4月份,美国商务部阻止中兴通讯进口美国零部件达7年之久,并得出结论认为,去年美国监管机构在对伊朗和朝鲜实施的制裁措施实施制裁后,已经欺骗了美国监管机构。这一决定相当于对中兴通讯的死刑判决,中兴通讯依赖美国的部分内容,并宣布停止运营。禁令也伤害了供应中兴通讯的美国公司。 中兴通讯案的解决可能为美国与中国的贸易谈判取得进展铺平道路。 因为双方国家都威胁要对价值高达2000亿美元的对方产品征收关税。 The United States and China have reached a deal that allows the Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE Corp. to stay in business in exchange for paying an additional $1 billion US in fines and agreeing to let U.S. regulators monitor its operations. The fine comes on top of a roughly $1 billion US penalty ZTE has already paid for having sold equipment to North Korea and Iran in violation of U.S. sanctions. The Commerce Department said Thursday that ZTE must also put $400 million US in escrow — a sum that it would forfeit if it violated Thursday’s agreement. China warns U.S. trade deals off if tariffs go ahead In addition, Ross said that a compliance team chosen by the United States will be embedded at ZTE and that the Chinese company must change its board and executive team within 30 days. In April, the Commerce Department blocked ZTE from importing American components for seven years, having concluded that it had deceived U.S. regulators after it settled charges last year of violating sanctions that were imposed against Iran and North Korea. The decision amounted to a death sentence to ZTE, which relies on U.S. parts and which announced that it was halting operations. The ban also hurt American companies that supply ZTE. Still, the resolution of the ZTE case may clear...

5月份意外丢失7500个就业岗位,但失业率保持在5.8%Economy unexpectedly lost 7,500 jobs in May as unemployment rate held at 5.8%

加拿大统计局周五公布的数据显示,5月份加拿大就业人数低于预期,大约丢失了7,500个就业岗位。 尽管工作人数有小幅下降,但上个月全国失业率稳定在5.8%。 5月份全职就业人数下降31,000人,但这一比例被本月约23,600人的兼职工作增加所抵消。 加拿大统计局称,5月份核心工作年龄为25岁至54岁的男性和女性的就业人数均下降约19,000人。 这个年龄组男性的失业率稳定在5%,而女性的失业率上升0.2个百分点,达到4.9% 按省份来看,爱德华王子岛的就业人数增加,而不列颠哥伦比亚省和新斯科舍省则减少。 在其他省份中,就业形势变化不大。 经济学家们表示,就业报告将不足以让加拿大央行下个月提高关键利率。 他们指出报告中列出的工资增长数字是该待决费率决定的潜在因素。 丰业银行(Scotiabank)经济学家德里克霍尔特(Derek Holt)表示,5月份的长期工资增长速度加快至3.9%,为2012年7月以来最快的工资增长。 运输署高级经济学家布赖恩德普拉托表示,加拿大银行“可能不会受到今天报告所有细节的鼓舞,但工资增长率将接近[年同比增长4%]将肯定会引起讨论。” The Canadian employment picture was weaker than expected in May, as the country unexpectedly lost about 7,500 jobs, according to figures released Friday by Statistics Canada.Despite the small drop in the number of people working, the national unemployment rate held steady at 5.8 per cent last month. Full-time employment dropped by 31,000 in May, but that was offset by a rise in part-time work of about 23,600 jobs for the month. Statistics Canada said employment for men and women in the core working ages of 25 to...
