As social networks and online stores have become increasingly important tools for wildlife s
mugglers, the administration has beefed up its anti-smuggling work online this year.
Customs officials are working on cases involving another 100 tons
of endangered wildlife and wildlife products, of which about 300 kilograms are tusks and ivory products.
Last year, the administration purchased advanced screening and detection equipment to improve th
e efficiency of its anti-smuggling work, according to Wang Wei, director of the administration’s ports supervision department.
People caught entering China with endangered wildlife or wildlife

Erica Kohler, director of operations of the San Diego Zoo, told Xinhua it
is sad to see the two pandas leaving for China. However, it is also a time to celebrate the successful coll
aboration with China on the joint research of panda breeding and wild life protection.
Dubbing the pandas “the friendship ambassadors” from China, she said Bai Yun and Xiao Liwu attracted about 2 million visitors to the zoo each year.
As the first panda on loan, Bai Yun, arrived at the San Diego Zoo in 1996. The cuddly panda soon became an iconic imag
e of the zoo and one of the most popular animals. The name of her son, Xiao Liwu, means Little Gift in English.
Gaylene Thomas, animal care supervisor of the San Diego Zoo, told Xi
nhua that they learned a lot from the giant pandas and gathered data from them.
Thomas said as a great mother of six baby pandas, Bai Yun has a very good character, is very easy-going.
domestically rated “AAA”, the safest level. The sale to individual investors is mainly of project-link
ed special-purpose bonds, a type of local government bond vigorously promoted by the government in re
cent years. The cash flows generated from the underlying projects will be used as the primary repayment sources.
In China, there are two types of local government bonds: general bonds and special purpose bonds. According to the country’s 2019 budget repor
t, which was approved by the top legislature earlier this month, the budgeted deficit for local governments is 930 billion yuan, up 100 billi
on yuan compared with 2018, and this fund gap will be supplemented by general bonds.
In the meantime, 2.15 trillion yuan of special purpose bonds will be issued to support la
rge infrastructure projects, such as shantytown renovation projects and railways, said the ministry.
Letting individual buyers invest in local government bonds is a way to narrow the government’s financin
g gap, said Hu Yijian, a tax professor at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. The gap is expected to expand, as policym
akers decided to cut about 2 trillion yuan in taxes and fees this year while at the same time increase spending on investment.
later this week and was working to build support for the deal, which sets out the terms of withdrawing from the EU and the outline of future relations with the bloc.
May warned opponents that continuing to reject the deal could lead to a “slow Brexit” that postpones the country’s departure indefinitely.
With the March 29 Brexit day set almost two years ago days away and the withdr
awaal agreement lacking Parliament’s approval, European leaders agreed to a postponement last week to avoid a ch
aotic cliff-edge departure that would be disruptive for the world’s biggest trading bloc and deeply damaging for Britain.
However, the EU granted a shorter delay than May sought. It said if Parliament approves
the proposed divorce deal, the UK would leave the EU on May 22. If not, the government has until April 12 to tell the
27 remaining EU countries what it plans to do – leave without a deal, cancel Brexit or chart a path to a new option.
France cooperation has not changed, Xi said.
“The history of China-France cooperation shows that bilateral ties are not ‘a zero-sum game.’ The strong com
plementarities between the two economies will remain for a long time,” Xi said, adding that China’s sustained devel
opment and further opening-up will create a host of new opportunities as well as broader space for bilateral cooperation.
Xi called on the two countries to constantly explore new fields of cooperation, nurture new growth areas for cooper
ation, and speed up the implementation of the Belt and Road and third-party cooperation projects that have been agreed upon.
“China staands ready to strengthen strategic communication and coordination with France on major issues including the UN aff
airs, the reform of the World Trade Organization and climate change,” Xi said, adding that China always supports European inte
gration and hopes France can play a more active role in leading and promoting China-Europe relations.
Hailing his successful visit to China last year, Macron said that the two countries have been implementing the important con
sensus reached by him and Xi over the past year, strengthening cooperation on economy, trade, technology and culture.
the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, expressed his optimism about the second summit and said that given the DPRK’s announcement that it would shift its strate
gic focus to economic development, the country will likely make concessions on giving up its nuclear weapons during th
is summit in exchange for the lifting of sanctions and the declaration of the end of the war.
Wang said denuclearization is an irreversible trend.
But Jenny Town, a research analyst at the Stimson Center in Washington, worried that it will be difficul
t for the two leaders to generate a specific road map and schedule for denuclearization at a single summit.
Also on Wednesday, the Republic of Korea’s presidential Blue House spokesman sa
id, “Whatever concessions Trump and Kim may make at their upcoming summit will be significant as th
ey will mean further progress toward the complete denuclearization of Pyongyang.”
Trump met separately with Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Tro
ng and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc earlier on We
dnesday. Kim is likely to meet the Vietnamese leaders during his two-day “official goodwill” visit after the summit w
ith Trump, given the local media reports saying Kim would leave the country on Saturday.

Reem and Rawan say they had been planning their escape in secret for two years. They didn’t dare discuss it in case they were
overheard, so, instead, they swapped WhatsApp messages, even while alone at night in their shared room.
Before they fled, the Sri Lanka vacation was just like any other. They wore their niqabs
to the beach and sat away from the surf while their brothers swam and joked. They cooked the meals, and
spent most of their days inside. It was humid. Their niqabs stuck to their skin and made it hard to see.
”We travel to move from a box to another box. From home to hotel, nothing will change,” Rawan says. “They will go o
ut, they will live freely, the men, of course we will sit away, watching them doing what they want.”
Their five-year-old sister played in the sand, but their 12-year-old sister, like them,
didn’t. She too was learning that it’s OK to be a girl in Saudi Arabia — until you grow up.
During the trip, Rawan turned 18. The timing was no accident. The vacation was planned with gentle persuasion to co
incide with a birthday that, unbeknown to their mother, allowed Rawan to apply for an Australian tourist visa.

When the content exposed by the news media on the Internet shocked the vast number of netize
ns, but the matter may not be true. You see, the chairman of Kunlun Wanwei was exposed to fraud. The content called Zhou Yahui’s transnational fra
ud. Once the news came out, Kunlun Wanwei Public Relations made the latest response and called it a pure slander. Let’s have a look.
Recently, an investor who claimed to be an ICST project was quoted by the self-Media as saying: “
Because of the blatant fraud of the ICST project side, the ICST tokens have been traded off the shelves at zero price; the StarMaker assets have been sold for two th
ings, and there is no hope of returning the capital.” And the accusation is directed at Zhou Yahui, chairman of Kunlun Wanwei.
Among the explosive materials provided by investors, Zhou Yahui complained that in the fourth quarter of 2017, he led the initiation of the ICST Block Chain Project to pass StarMaker
assets and conduct multiple rounds of ICO public financing, raising hundreds of millions of yuan. During 2018, Zho
u Yahui delayed promoting the commercial application of ICST Block Chain Agreement on StarMaker and refused to use the Maker Platform to buy ba
ck the net profit of each quarter. ICST; Zhou Yahui will make StarMaker one production, two sales and many other matters.
In response to the above complaint, the responsible person of Kunlun Wanwei Group’s Public Re
lations Department responded to reporters that this matter is pure defamation, and we are going through legal proce
dures. “(This matter) is a completely organized malicious attack, and we will follow up with public action as you can see.”
After Zhou Yahui’s transnational fraud was reported, a lot of netizens were shocked to hear about it. What they reported was only
defamation. Now they are going through legal procedures. The defamator will receive a notice from the court and face punishment more likely.
