     BEIJING (MNI) - The following lists highlights from Chinese press reports
on Wednesday:
     China will not engage in power games with the U.S. or give in to
Washington's unreasonable demands, the People's Daily Overseas Edition said in a
commentary today. Instead, China will persist in reform and opening up, looking
for mutually beneficial development with all countries, the newspaper said.
     In the face of ongoing attacks by the U.S., Huawei and China's
semiconductor industry as a whole need to hone their skills and come out
stronger as soon as possible, the Global Times said in a commentary late
Tuesday.
     The PBOC is unlikely to cut benchmark interest rates in the near term, the
Economic Information Daily said today citing several analysts, noting that a
marginal and targeted easing is a higher possibility than a comprehensive
easing. Even if the PBOC cuts rates, it will try to liberalize them at the same
time, the newspaper said citing Wen Bin, chief analyst at China Minsheng Bank.
The PBOC will lower short-term policy rates to guide the money and bond market,
and finally let commercial banks independently price the loan interest rate, Wen
added.
     The PBOC will sell CNY20 billion one-month yuan-denominated bills along
with CNY 10 billion six-month bills in Hong Kong on June 26, according to a
statement on the PBOC website today.
