China Meets with India to Discuss Common Interests…

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 5, 2010

Actually this should be called, China sucks up to India , they have no common interests nor collegiality for one another and this is just preventitive in nature. Or maybe that is too long of a title. But anyway, China and India still have land disputes, they are not friends….

From Xinhua,
“BEIJING, April 1 (Xinhua) — China on Thursday highlighted common ground with India in the run-up to Indian Foreign Minister Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna’s visit to Beijing.

“We believe the two sides will take the opportunity of Krishna’s visit to carry out dialogue, promote cooperation and push forward China-India relations,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang.

Qin told a regular news briefing that Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi were scheduled to meet with Krishna, whose visit would last from April 5 to 8.

Qin said the two countries shared common ground in tackling global challenges.

“China and India are both important neighbors and emerging economies,” said Qin. “The neighborly and friendly cooperation between the two countries is of great importance for the two sides to jointly deal with global issues and maintaining world peace and stability.

“We hope the two countries can deal with problems and challenges they are facing from strategic and overall perspectives,” said Qin.

“We are willing to work with India to boost strategic trust, step up mutually-beneficial cooperation, and further coordination in international affairs to promote bilateral ties,” said Qin.

Chicoms to World, Your Business Still Welcome- Unless You are Google

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 5, 2010

This is from the chinadaily, and basically the Chinese are saying its just business as usual, that foreigners are still welcome- much of this comes from Google taking off, and some others. The truth is that this is like China creep, they lure yoiu in and then little by blittle take away liberties or drop little surprises on you. This is probasbly why the US has been talking to India quite a bit lately. Their culture matches ours more and probably is a good option as well.

“BEIJING – Foreign businesses in China are operating in an improving and maturing environment, with the government committed to its World Trade Organization (WTO) pledges, a former top trade negotiator has said.
“It’s just not true to say that China is getting tougher with multinationals doing business in the country,” Tong Zhiguang, who is also a former vice-minister of commerce, told China Daily on Monday. “Instead, I believe the Chinese government is taking a more active and open attitude toward foreign investment in terms of the policies concerned,” China’s former WTO chief negotiator said.

Tong made the remarks in response to complaints by a number of international companies about more business restrictions in China.

These complaints flared up after Internet search giant Google withdrew its operations from the Chinese mainland last month.

From the Yangcheng evening news

“WENZHOU, Zhejiang – A former Party chief of Ouhai district in Wenzhou has been detained for allegedly killing his mistress as well as for corruption, media has reported.

On Wednesday, officials from the Zhejiang provincial department of public security said that Xie Zaixing, former secretary of the Ouhai district committee of the Communist Party of China, was put into criminal detention by the West Lake branch of Hangzhou public security bureau on Sunday.

The Standing Committee of Ouhai District People’s Congress, or the legislature, deprived Xie of his qualification to serve as a deputy to the Wenzhou People’s Congress due to the allegations.

Yangcheng Evening News said Xie is suspected of choking his mistress, Shao Huiling, with a quilt during a quarrel at a hotel room in Hangzhou.

The Guangzhou-based 21st Century Business Herald reported on Wednesday that Xie was also alleged to have been involved in corruption during his previous term in office as the magistrate of Sanmen county.

The report said Xie had illegally transferred 37 hectares of farmland in a local village in April 2003.

China Fact

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 5, 2010

The Cultural Revolution was a period of unprecedented turmoil in which society was virtually turned upside down. Students, in the form of Red Guard, went on a rampage. Schools and universities were closed, intellectuals and artists of all kinds were dismissed, persecuted, sent to labor in the countryside, or killed. Temples, monuments, and works of art were defaced and destroyed. All religious institutions were closed and religious workers were sent to prison or to work in factories or in the countryside. This was a time of suffering for all the Chinese people. Its effects are still felt in society.
