ei Jianguo, a former vice-minister of commerce, said US bus

inesses and consumers will pay the cost amid hefty levies, which will eventually add significant pressure on the US economy.

The US government’s moves risk sparking a full-blown trade

war with China, and China is fully prepared for any possibility, Wei said.

Economists at Goldman Sachs said in a research note that recent data showed the costs of Washington’s tariffs on China last year

had fallen “entirely” on US businesses and households, with no clear reduction in prices charged by Chinese exporters.

The bank said that US consumer prices are higher, partly because Chinese exporters have not low

ered their prices to better compete in the US market. In addition, some US producers “op

portunistically” increased prices in response to protection from Chinese competitors, it said.

Pam Marsden, head of production for Sony Pictures Anim

mation, also considers characterization as a crucial element to developing successful animated works.

The studio’s 2018 smash hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won a string of awards, including the 91st Os

cars’ best animated feature, thanks to its unique look that combines computer animation and traditional hand-drawn techniques.

Speaking of developing a formula for making hit movies, Marsden says: “It begin

s with characters. If you can create a character that is beloved, charming and appealing, and touches the hearts of an audie

nce, you are well on your way to creating a successful animated movie that can cross all borders.”

If Hollywood’s experience leads it to focus primarily on the characters they create, Japanese director Hay

ato Date says he believes that voice-over dialogue is another important factor affecting the success of any animated work.

Best known for the manga-adapted animated TV series Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden, Date r

eveals that he has developed a particular method which gathers all the voice artists together to record the scenes.

 of eight years, Ma found Chinese patients with advanced nasopharyngeal cancer suffered more side

effects than benefits from the additional chemotherapy, which cost about 13,400 yuan ($2,000) per patient.

The findings, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, drew the attention of

Western experts, and the United States and Europe revised their treatment guidelines.

More recently, Ma added a new drug to the original dual drug ch

emotherapy regimen, and moved post-radiotherapy chemotherapy to pre-radiotherapy.

In another clinical study of 480 cases, Ma and his team found th

at this regimen increased the five-year survival rate of patients by 8 percent.
