The prime minister is determined to secure our departu

e from the European Union,” Graham Brady, chair of the 1922 Committee that

can make or break party leaders, said following a meeting between his co

mmittee’s executive and May in parliament which he described as a “very frank exchange”.

The government has said lawmakers will be able to debate and vote on the Withdrawal Agre

ement Bill, the legislation required to enact May’s Brexit deal, in the week starting June 3.

“We have agreed that she and I will meet following the second reading of the Bill to agree a timetable for the el

ection of a new leader,” Brady said, adding that the conversation would take place whether the bill was passed or not.

May, who became prime minister in the chaos that followed the 2016 referendum when Brit

Many people have the impression that Chinese goods are dominant in US markets. That is true only in a few highly com

US market in such items as umbrellas, toys, prepared feathers, footwear, straw products, and bedding.

Chinese exporters have from 20 to 50 percent of the US market in ot

China’s IPR protection efforts bear fruit for foreign enterprises

China’s IPR protection efforts bear fruit for foreign enterprises

China’s constant improvement of intellectual property rights pro

tection is a huge boon for popular foreign IPs like Peppa Pig to ride the country’s consum

ption boom, according to an executive from the trademark’s owner Entertainment One UK Ltd.

“There has been a very positive trend in China,” said Tim Pfeiffer

, the company’s senior vice-president of business affairs. “Our cooperation with the China Trad

emark Office has been very encouraging and we are more than happy to cooperate further.”

Beijing’s efforts have shown that it is serious about enforcing IPR protection to safeguard justice an

d social stability. Chinese courts have resulted in a 42 percent surge in intellectual property r

ights cases in 2018, according to the work reports of the Supreme People’s Court and the Supreme People’s Proc

uratorate that were submitted to the country’s annual national legislative session in March.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.

Pilot blames lightning for deadly crash landingkhoi aircraft

The pilot of a Russian passenger plane that erupted in a ball of fire on the runway of Moscow’s busiest airp

ort, killing 41 of the 78 people aboard, said lightning led to the emergency landing, Agence France-Presse reported.

Investigators on Monday were working to understand the causes of the blaze after the Suk

hoi Superjet-100 returned to Sheremetyevo airport shortly after takeoff on Sunday evening.

Pilot Denis Yevdokimov told Russian media the aircraft lost communication and needed to

switch to emergency control mode “because of lightning” on the Aeroflot flight to the Arctic city of Murmansk.

He did not specify if the plane was struck directly.

“We managed to restore communication through the emergency frequenc

y on our radio connection. But the link was only for a short time and kept cutting out. … It wa

s possible to say only a few words,” he told The Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

Barca has won 26 league titles in Spain, compared to

 33 for Real Madrid. But Barca have won

eight of the last 11 leagues and 10 of the last 15 (all 10 with Messi in the squad).

Earlier in the day, second-placed Atletico Madrid won 1-0 at home over struggling Valladolid to delay Barca’s celebrations.

The only goal of the match came in the 66th minute when Valladolid’s Joaquin Fernandez put the ball into his own net, but

the visitors were convinced they should have had a penalty after Santiago Arias clearly handed the ball in his own area.

Referee Melero Lopez checked with the VAR but decided the handball was accidental.

Athletic Club Bilbao remains seventh after a 1-1 draw at home with Alaves in the Basque derby.
