He's the head of strategy and biz dev it unstoppable DeFi and has become the interlocutor of European Union politics for the crypto industry during these proceedings. He wrote last week, I hate to ring the alarm bell again, but the EU parliament leaves us no choice. First red flag, different from the initial proposal that only required to collect not verify personal data from transfers made from slash two and un hosted wallet, the draft now requires to quote verify the accuracy of information with respect to the originator or beneficiary behind the un hosted wallet. But it doesn't say exactly how a crypto service provider should be able to verify the un hosted counterparty. The consequence of this, in my opinion, is that most crypto companies won't be able or willing to transact with un hosted wallets anymore in order to stay compliant. Second for every crypto transfer from an un hosted wallet over one K Euro, companies are obliged to inform the quote competent AML authorities. For all these transactions, even if there is no sign or suspicion of money laundering, this is an absolute violation of privacy rights. Third red flag, one year after entry into application, the EU commission will assess the need of quote additional specific measures to mitigate the risks posed by transfers from or to un hosted wallets, including the introduction of possible restrictions. This means that the EU commission might be prohibiting transfers from and to un hosted wallets entirely, as was already suggested by some members of the parliament in an earlier draft. Fourth, while the financial action task force travel rule only requires these measures for transactions over a certain amount, one K USD, and the TFR for Fiat only requires the information sharing for transfers over one K Euro, the draft sets no minimum thresholds for crypto transfers. That means that soon every single satoshi transaction that is not purely P2P will have to be accompanied by the sharing of personal information. This is a totally unjustifiable double standard. If anything the AML requirements for cryptocurrency should be lower, since blockchain based transfers offer new and additional ways to track and monitor. There are more problematic passages in the text, but these are the main ones to focus on. This proposal cracks down on a hosted wallets and creates huge data honeypots for hackers. What's concerning is that this time different from the proof of work ban in the Mika regulation, the council or member states seem to be on the same page with the EU parliament on these issues. No threshold for crypto transfers and crackdown on un hosted wallets. Now to this thread Paul Tang, who's a member of the progressive alliance of socialists and Democrats for the Netherlands, responded, and Tang has made himself the chief provocateur on Twitter as it comes to this legislation. He writes, another week, another social media storm by crypto Bros. Now about the transfer of funds regulation. Just like bank transfers transferring crypto like Bitcoin should be accompanied with information about the person sending and receiving the funds. Now the European Parliament wants to cover also transfers to and from un hosted wallets. These are wallets where crypto assets are stored on your PC without the involvement or knowledge of anyone else. Similar to holding cash in your pocket. But cryptos are extremely mobile and operate in a borderless world. This means that funds from un hosted wallets often come from unknown sources. And money going to un hosted wallets may end up in the wrong place, for example, with terrorist groups. So the identity of unhosted wallet holders needs identification, just like you need to identify yourself when you deposit money at the bank. And we want authorities to be notified in case anyone person receives a total of €1000 plus from un hosted wallets. This is a red flag. The parliament also covers all crypto transfers regardless of their monetary value. The unstable value of crypto assets makes a threshold in Euros difficult to enforce. And smurfing allows for many small transfers to be coordinated so as to escape any threshold. These are important tools to fight money laundering and terrorist financing. Some crypto lobbyists won't like the extra work, but being part of our society comes with obligations. Banks already fight criminal money. Crypto Bros should step up to the plate and do so too. And so here in a single tweet and a quote tweet response, you have the gist of this argument. The great debate is about financial freedom and sovereignty on the one hand versus the boogeyman of crime and societal obligations on the other. On the side of the state or MPs like Tang and aurora le Luc, who said we are talking here about a serious subject. The fight against money laundering, the financing of terrorism crime, keto crime, a subject that deserves no controversy, no buzz. Avoiding new victims, defending the general interest, these are our values. On the other side are those who view these rules as overly strict, more strict in fact than the banks. More its corner from the liberal free Democratic Party representing Germany says, if we impose stricter rules on the crypto economy than on the traditional financial sector, we risk once again over regulating and innovative economic sector that will, as a result, thrive in markets outside the EU. Michael Hugh Gavin, a member of the European conservatives and reformists for the Netherlands says, the greatest asset of blockchains are traceability and transparency. The amendments to the transfer of funds regulation make transfers to a wallet unnecessarily complicated. Come with privacy risk and will hinder innovation. I will vote against it. Pure person again, though not in the EU parliament also articulated the position of many. Regulating the uses of crypto requires a good understanding of how it works. We can not transpose banking and financial regulation applied to a centralized ecosystem to a brand new ecosystem. We have to invent a whole new KYC AML model adapt to this new technology. This leads us to the determination of political objectives by the regulator. To date, the Fatah has not been able to adapt its recommendations to the new technological dimension. It needs to use tools enabled by this technology to work on a new framework based on the risk approach. To date, the presumption of guilt weighs on the centralized actors and users. The prohibitive approach seems to dominate in Europe. These choices will condemn these nations and financial competition. The nations that have the courage to work to learn without dogma will be the winning nation in this international competition. Not because they will be the lowest bidder, but because they will have known how to regulate intelligently. So there are obviously a lot of specifics to this debate. While at company ledger wrote a blog post, for example, pointing out using figures from chain analysis compared to figures from the UN that Fiat currency money laundering is 232 times as large as crypto money laundering. Another starker way to put it is that the amount of money the UN estimates was laundered last year through traditional means, it's around the same size as the total crypto market cap. These are the types of details that should be debated with more time. But I don't think those specifics are really why this issue gets so hot. I think why these debates are so triggering is that there are a microcosm of the great and central conceit of really all modern politics. The rights of individuals versus the obligations of participation in a society. I point that out as a way of saying that it is not only fair but good to have those debates. Especially when they are had in good faith. This is a precarious balance that is constantly shifting. New threats and new circumstances do require new evaluations, but so too do threats to individual sovereignty. If we really decide as a society that we have zero tolerance for any financial crime, then yes, we can also put human financial surveillance to 100 and financial sovereignty to zero. But that would also necessarily mean the end to cash, among other things. What it seems strange as it admittedly outside observer is the way in which two major issues now of dramatic importance to the cryptocurrency industry have been pushed into legislation at the last minute without a lot of time for the industry to comment and engage. Now I will admit I could have the wrong of that. It could be partially on the industry that we haven't been paying enough attention or engaging enough. But it's still feels strange and hurried. This sentiment was sort of validated by silk Noah, a lawyer at gnosis, who pointed to Russia's invasion of the Ukraine as an accelerating force for, well, everything. She writes, since 2021, negotiations have been ongoing to extend the scope of the TFR to crypto. IE virtual asset service providers must collect and make accessible info about the sender and beneficiary of crypto transfers. Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the drafting of amendments has been speeded such that it now represents a masterclass in how to kill the EU's most promising industry. Whatever the case, unlike the Mika proof of work ban, this one did not go our way. At ten 21 a.m. this morning, east coast time, Patti Hansen writes, breaking the econ and lead committees of the EU parliament voted in favor of the FTR compromises D and E that cracked down on quote unquote un hosted wallets. The entire regulation draft to be voted on later today, but will certainly go through. So what happens from here? Well, one, I will not pretend to understand the EU legislative process at all. But again, here's what Patrick Hansen had to say about it. After the vote today, the econ proposal will be announced in the plenary session probably sometime in April. If no one challenges that by requesting a plenary vote, the between the EU parliament commission and council will start shortly after. The trial usually takes a couple of months and offers the last chance to introduce changes. Individual voices from the council and commission make me optimistic that we can still achieve changes. But the situation is undoubtedly more difficult than with the proof of work ban. Now, what about partisanship? Obviously I talk about that a lot in the U.S., monitoring, if and how crypto is becoming more or less partisan. And I've described how I believe that it is to crypto's benefit, how it seems to be bucking the tide of rampant partisanship. In the EU, it would be tempting to look at these results and see it as a left alliance for this identity verification and a right alliance against it. But even here, that's not fully true. If a Cali is the vice president of the Euro parliament and is from the progressive alliance of socialists and Democrats and a member for Greece, she wrote on March 29th, head of the vote for AML, it seems necessary to not put EU in the backseat of DeFi and innovation, but to support the initial approach of TFR. Proportionality and smart regulation for innovation friendly principle should be the spirit. Hopefully EU will make the right decision. Ever kept up for tweeting this morning, she retweeted Cameron winklevoss from Gemini who said when it comes to AML efforts, the inherent attributes of the blockchain, traceability, auditability, and transparency, allow it to be an effective tool to combat illegitimate activity. Subject to protecting privacy and other individual rights. She also added transfer of funds from un hosted wallets to EU crypto asset service providers should be possible in a proportionate way, otherwise EU risks circumvention of EU infrastructure via non EU providers to fight crime and corruption while remaining tech neutral and innovation friendly. And finally, no matter what happens today, there is a need to discuss further in the European Parliament. We will host workshops with experts and work with colleagues that have the best intentions for a proportionate responsibility of European Union, crypto asset service providers. So there will be a lot more ink spilled on this. There will be debates in the EU around the specifics of wallets around the practicality and legality of requiring parties to provide KYC of third parties of crypto's relevance to the EU economy and more. There will be a temptation by many in the crypto industry to say screw them all to believe firmly that this means that the regulators in the European Union do not have the best interest of this industry anywhere near their priorities. But I think that it would be a mistake. It may be late in the game, but the process isn't over, and what's more, even if it's a slim chance, changing laws before they're made is a hell of a lot easier than changing laws after they become laws. I will, of course, be keeping track of this and sharing resources where I can. For now I want to say thanks again to my sponsors, nexo IO, arculus, and FTX, and thanks to you guys for listening.

It looks like they're having a great time and us keep doing that. I can use showing that. It's not a big scary thing that people think tournaments of yeah. It can be a little bit. Daunting for sure. And i think we all have those social hangups When we go into any kind of new situation where you're meeting new people or anything like that So yeah just just humanizing. It really does help quite a bit. Yeah just always showing that the least people involved for all from different walks of life. We're all coming together to play this game. So and i was once like you. I was once like you. Who is starting hoppy for the first time and and we all got journey three Getting paid oh the help us point them in the right direction to youtube will podcast or blogs or advice forums whatever it might be To nurture nurture new people like we all have. We all have had these. You play a journey in some form will. And that's the only reason this shows even happening right now in this interview happening right now is because Somebody i know through the community supported me in the direction of your show and hey great now. we're told me your pricing. You mentioned a twenty boxes thank you. You made it a a very small barrier to entry is twenty bob. It doesn't give you a lot of factor to kind of if you want to buy trophy if you want to buy. Prizes twenty bucks person doesn't get you a lot. Obviously we want to reduce it. So it's easy for somebody to come but at the same time at it organized you won enough to be able to buy things absolutely. Yeah i just make the sacrifice. I buy all my trophies out of pocket. I do all the tickets anything that i need to to make that run. It's personal expense to me. I don't care. I don't mind doing that and then i just try to make sure that all that pricing is going back to the community somehow so again. I'll talk about paul tang He has a fabulous amount of terrain. That we all use. It's available for our whole community to us at the store. I mean the guy conduct. I think i wanna. I wanna say like fifty sixty tables for a two key game which is really impressive. Also sometimes that money goes towards repairing that terrain fixing stuff that all the community uses. Sometimes that goes back into the store or Most of it goes back to the players. I think it really helps that. We have a place that we don't have to pay for the like. The space is is a big one that allows me to do that and keeps the cost of these events lower and if you are going to charge more for an event just make sure that the value is there would be my only advice in that regard right like. Give them a fairly professional players Give them a sense that you care a lot about this event in your bringing something special for them to add value to that right also. Let's be honest if you're paying twenty bucks stew essentially entertain yourself for eight hours a day. That's a hell of a deal is pretty good and even paying more than that you know..

"Miami now what I mean. Can you gotTa have this argument. You know you go somewhere else. I mean I don't care so this is this is a constant right and battle but I think it's changing people are starting to realize the detrimental effects of a lot of this stuff and it's just general public opinion. which is where I del? So now we're getting into your influenced by the Ron Paul Tang and you know we were involved in that and stuff too. And you're heavily influenced by that and I knew a lot of people would be try jumped in on that thing so much and now it has repercussion. You know it's going on. So how old are you now. Oh I'm sorry I had to push a button. I'm sorry and older you and thirty nine thirty nine. So that was that means that you're in your twenties. So you're twenty nine. Twenty eight twenty nine Ron Paul. I started going. You're still in your twenties show as you start having children you know you had children. Since then your entire our life was influenced by Rahm all in the level Lucien Yeah K.. In what way what what. What is it chain you the concept of self off ownership really I mean Not Needing to get the permission slip like the whole self realization that I am a sovereign individual individual and that I'm a nation to myself basically. Yeah I have to deal with the other nations around here but I'm a nation to myself and that and that I changed your whole thought process that just Jack you're crap up and what does your wife in into this where you guys married back then or yeah we were married Back the end I was I was I. I was home schooled kid when I was you know growing up. And so the the benefit of being a home school of kids I avoided a lot of the indoctrination so I have grown up. Always feeling like I I would just meet my own sovereign individual but I didn't know those terminologies and so when I got older and started having to think about being an adult adult and all that I started thinking about voting and all that I even registered to vote one time and that was for the Ron Paul all campaign I went and voted for Ron Paul. I went back and looked at the results. That for my district and not one person voted for it and I knew that myself and two other people are definitely did so you know. I didn't actually vote. Apparently apparently and I've never by my registration never actually went through so I've never registered to vote but all of that just to to say that During that time period I went from me and I don't care really I don't know anything about it to holy cow. I know a lot more than and I want to know and I'm definitely staying away from. Yeah it you're you're dealing with problems. I was showing some video. Some of your you're banned. You're playing videos and some people know what you're doing in your co the I. I know the impact that has on a lot. Yeah Dhabi's in Good Morning Davi. Good morning the Jeremy is a has a little farm and workshop makes Banjos and so on his thing you know we started talking his on copyright and Tatyana Zone tomorrow on the second hour. So we get to talk about that. And I I know you got your copyright. We don't care you know position but yeah yeah yeah. I don't know I only not care deeply offended so that's how I is die. Yeah Yeah I do. You can't be creative you're just. It's like mental blocks everywhere and I'm just I I I just ignore them. Well example In in my type of music we do a lot of traditional music and so most of US play everybody's music well well whenever you perform this type of music Most of the time we just automatically assume it's a traditional song and we don't even think about the copyright but the the moment you go play for a place that requires the copyright Soon as cap licenses You have to be con- cognizant of those tunes. And make sure you don't sing those songs that are copyright. What or they will find the the venue usually? It's the venue that get has to get the license and so they stop having performances so you lose locations to go play again which is your primary source of income. Imagine how ridiculous that would seem in literally any other period of history in the long history of music of humanity if like people just like hang out on their porch and play whatever song they want her on their band Joe and like like the entire like growth of of music as a thing that humans do happened in a context when people shared little ditties and went back and forth. And and and you know if you take a look at traditional music there are parts and pieces of lack of songs in lots of songs. Like you'll hear a phrase that you know came out of this song or there we everybody's got a four record Jong twinkle talk. A Little Star is also the alphabet song exactly and it's also another sign. Yeah forget the name of it but yeah happy now you got that in my ears. Now you got me messed up twinkle twinkle in alphabet. I'm screwed up now. Oh okay this one thing that brought Jeremy into it is just a self realization self ownership and all that through Paul Evolution. You know that that kind of sparked or camp and you Kinda came out in revolution too. Didn't you came out of what came out. Just a spouse John Thank you. Very closeted anarchists the Muslim anarchist. I mean you know. It's not like your you you black so but you were inspired. I mean what was the big thing in the level of self ownership thing.

Well you guys don't know this I'm GonNa be a butthead about this because this tells you everything you need to know now the heads of Obama's FBI and CIA both voted for communist during the Cold War Yet were somehow able to move up the ranks within the same. US intelligence community that they had spent decades fighting that very. Sorry I I'm like what the hell all right now. This is combing in college. I was left of center. Komi told New York magazine Zien and through a gradual process. Found myself more comfortable with a lot of the ideas and approaches the Republicans were using. He voted for Carter in one thousand nine hundred eighty eighty four. I voted for Reagan. I moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I'm not even sure how to characterize myself politically maybe at some point and we'll have to figure it out. Oh my God then you get then you get to Brennan. Okay now. This is Brennan was sworn in La Director on draft the US Constitution with without the bill of rights instead of a Bible he wanted the US constantly. Just why I keep saying. The constitution is Document that didn't you Blah Blah Blah. We're GONNA have to three. You know separate branches of government aligned against the rights and individual in your in a free speech zone I mean you know constitutionally additionally I it's just it's the power the power of eminent domain power to tax power the war the power to take your money and the power of come up with a better one than we'll debate that later but go ahead. I'm from and bill of rights or something. That's fine I died. We'll debate that next week. Well this this is my point is is that Brennan was perfectly perfectly perfectly happy to be sworn into C. I. A. Director on a draft of the Constitution Russian but not with the bill of rights. So this is my point. The constitution allows for all this stuff to happen that it spoke to prevent. Okay that's my point. And he said that while he had voted communist he wasn't an official member of the Communist Party was relieved that he had been accepted into the CIA. Yea I said I was neither Democrat or Republican. You know Blah Blah Blah now. This is what happened there. Were asking him if there was anything that would prevent these these. Here's speaking to whether they're prevent them from being in the intelligence community and so on he goes and I said I I. I'm not a member of the Communist Party. So the polly polygraph are looked at me and said Okay and when I was finished with the polygraph and I laughed and said well I'm screwed so with back in one thousand nine hundred eighty John Brennan was allowed to say. I voted for the Communist Party with Gus Hall and still got through. Rest assured that your rights and your expressions and your freedom of speech as Americans. There's something that's not going to be disqualifying of you as you pursue a career in government to former CIA director concluded. He's going look. Look Yeah you know I got to be the head of the CIA and voted Communist. So I'm going. It was a requirement. I this the Obama Administration so when you have Obama Komi Brennan a spouse whatever the hell I'm I'm man with a Rubicon con got crossed. That's my point. Yeah and it's interesting that when we have the head of the CIA. You know we've got people that are communists. Communists admitted that they appreciate communism and the running the the the running our country deep state. Whatever and yet at the same time? We we have two or three candidates that are self proclaimed communists socialists. Running for president. I mean isn't interesting that we're at that point that juncture in this country in the world at the same time. Obviously it's by design and we're seeing the ramifications of years and years of their planning and to their credit. You know it's it's been pay. Hey off it's been this has been one of the largest depends if you call it. Conspiracy or not in many ways has been out. It's been out in in the open for people to see. We've sat back and watched it and for many people including conservatives that sat back quiet and said well. I don't WanNa rock the boat auto. I don't WanNa offend anybody or this is what we get. This is what happens now is interesting too. As far as the communism that this view for globalism and Communism That they h-share is similar to not trying to be funny with us but with the same problem with culture war with star wars being so neutered and watered down. It's because is that the globalists' are actually part of that new. I'm sorry of old and dying. Modernist tradition that I I was talking about earlier where you have. Fascism Communism and liberal democracy and Communism was one of them that has gone down but the whole idea of liberal democracy and communism or modernism in general role is that is that is that the politics the culture needs to be one size fits all so that it sits for every country and culture in a AH on the planet but in order to do that you have to neuter what makes each culture unique. And that's the problem that we're finding that's why these movies for for instance that are going out there the new stores movies and Star Trek and whatever else and that's a whole other issue up to jump into right now but the reason they're so boring in vanilla no one seems to tyranny more is because they're neutering them so that they therefore they're allowable in countries like China and so what you need to do is take away Eh. What makes what makes a movie American? Now what went. Now when a movie doesn't give a crap with the world market says and there is a movie that debt specifically thickly for the first time almost five years gave the Middle Finger to the Globalist Movement for movie making and that movie is called Joker her and that is why that movie basically was covered that the the middle singer to this whole thing China bands joker and that S J ws hate joker and yet that movie Uvi took off and I don't want to get into this whole thing about movies but that movie was really was very American. It came from the American tradition of score stacey of the seventies and yet that movie had American culture and yet it was kicked out of China. While that's kind of what the politics is this well Soros and Komi when you're communist onion est you want everything neutered and to go back to earn his point the constitution they might still wanna back but like you said the bill of rights. They don't because the bill of rights is something that is American. It's uniquely American especially the Second Amendment so therefore they don't want things that cannot be translated or transmuted transmuted easily into other countries. So that's kind of what global thing is culture and politics twice star wars can't be sold American Style and the bill of writes can't be sold overseas either so same thing K.. Whoa what Star Wars overseas can't be sold because they.

"paul tang" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"So he's pointers, even if you don't agree with these pro independence activists you've got to allow them the space to express their opinions. Well, when we do that's why not because you're banning them from standing that's different. We're banning them from real operating as a party, but we can certainly talk about this subject. And so we are talking right now. I mean, these subjects are being discussed at a university level of the day to day life. We talk about these issues. There's no one telling us not to, but you obviously don't endorse them to operate as a party to encourage independence of that is the red line. Are you really allowing them to speak? Do I'll give you an example, Paul Tang a bookseller here in Hong Kong forced to close down his shop because he was selling books, which are forbidden by the communist party in Beijing and Joshua Wong? And other pro-democracy activists says this mocks definitive proof of Hong Kong's lack of freedom. Well, if you have a chance of bizarre legislature, you can see this debate a very lively. So we certainly can talk about it. Now, I think a lot of people are confused visually optically is what happened in China in China. That's a different story. I think in Hong Kong these types of topics. These issues are discussed very likely every day. Of course, we maintain that freedom expressions in Hong Kong. So you're saying that there is no freedom of speech of expression in China, the mainland, but that there is actually in. Hello, everyone understands that we operate a very different way than the rest of China. We have that's why the two systems exist. Rely flee and Hong Kong, but then why would for example, since two thousand fourteen the pro democracy umbrella revolution protesters, even since then is still protesting as they were outside the university of Hong Kong in March to protest is saying we condemn the punishment of four students because they were defending freedom of speech, you what people don't think anywhere else in the world will allow students blocking the major highways of of any city for almost ninety days eighty days. It's unheard of. I think the fact that we are so accommodating to the students. And they continue to express freely at the university level. But because I do not believe that they represent a majority though, however, the Hong Kong citizen the rest of the Hong Kong citizens would not agree with them. That's why the whole you mentioned the umbrella movement Vissel out towards the end because they don't get the support from the rest of the Hong Kong citizens carry land. The chief executive whom you advise has said Hong Kong, our home is suffering from quite a lot of divisiveness. She said that at the time of her election two years ago, even she accepts that there is divided opinion. In Hong Kong, you compress it under the carpet. We don't have to remind you the majority of the rest of Hong Kong people with a better worries than than the independence Hongling dependent. Again, if I keep repeating that's a very small part of Hong Kong, the big about Hong Kong worry about our future. Are we going to continue to be prosperous? We worry about being marginalized with what's happening in the rest of the world. And he's a v China does. The big issues that we're facing of housing affordability. We have tons of other topics that we need to pay much more attention than talking about independent for Hong Kong. Which is a non-starter says wind kept saying for the the national audience. Maybe this is the burning issue, but they are not. Who is a pro democracy activists necessarily advocates independence, the two things the separate. There were those who are genuinely concerned about erosion of the rights, which are enshrined in the basic law. So criticizing here, the pro independence, and I set you accept that that is a tiny tiny minority, but there's a wider body of opinion who's concerned about the control that's coming from Beijing. But I totally disagreed as any erosion of what we've been allowed to do in Hong Kong freedom expressions continue the rule of law continue you look at our court system in Hong Kong within of the judges on these quarterfinal appeal. The most senior court, I'm not even Chinese and sixty percent practice in the common altruistic shin. So we remain very independent invasive species. There's a big fear that the, but that's not losing its impartiality. Well, I mentioned to you. The court remains very independent because majority of them practice in the communautaire restrictions. An open letter signed by twelve lawyers, including the former UK not chance low and six other QC's in twenty seventeen were responding to the jailing of the pro democracy. Protests leaders, but they set this series threat to the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary. A pillar of Hong Kong risks becoming Sherard at the beckon, call of the Chinese communist Party Hong Kong's real of law and basic freedoms at the heart of the principle of one country two systems now face grave threats. They disagree with you about. The judiciary as far as I know. People are still coming to Hong Kong the investigative really trust our legal system. We remain independent. And you know, just before itself I mean, and I have not seen one case. Now, one of our rivalry. I won't mention any name that city. You know, I think in Hong Kong, we the government lost more cases than that city ever have. So the court remain not biased. We remain very independent. We over well, whatever and swam in the law. So I disagree. And that's why we continue to see investors coming to Hong Kong to use this as a base to invest to the rest of China is not the case. Because I mean, you work in business you come from the family you've been involved in insurance and banking. You sit on the boards of both Chinese and foreign companies. And I put this to you Charles Mok, a former IT executive who represents the IT sector. In the legislative council said at the end of last year previously when I went abroad to promote investment people ask me, whether they could make money. But now, they are asking me about freedom of expression, and we have law related problems. Or I totally agree. When I go abroad. Yeah. But that's that's the first question concerning. You know, why they ask that question? Because all the Newsday got is always about issues with these one country, problem independence and reporters allowed to report ought to hear about that. They don't here. They don't see what's happening day to day in Hong Kong lies where businesses striping and people continue to invest in using the vantage point, I only got to hear from the international media all the things relating to the politics your answer to that. But the point I was made. Okay. Well, I'll put you very informed opinion, then cheap. Perhaps clarify the point. I was trying to make to you sue from the Economist Intelligence Unit says Hong Kong's prosperity is founded on global recognition of its autonomy from China, a potential, for instance, the central government over the territory is likely to bring concerns to Hong Kong's major trading partners where already seeing investor confidence being shaken in Hong Kong because of people's concerns about perhaps lack of transparency. Parents seeing the kinds of things that they've seen going on in the mainland coming here. Thanks exactly why does to system and why people coming to Hong Kong because we are very transparent. And I think central government prefer to keep the two system the way it is. Because it's exactly the reason why people would like to come to Hong Kong use Hong Kong as the pathway to invest in China because the rule of law here is something that national investors, very comfortable. With does exactly why you mentioned that. I have many locations to meet with the group setting. And each time he reminded that to system needs to continue the way it is the China also want to see the two system to thrive. Well, I mean there are warnings. That Hong Kong does risk being hurt by deterring US China relations, and that it can no longer pretend that Hong Kong has genuine autonomy from Beijing that is a few. So let me ask you that much major the trade tensions between China and the United States and a lot of that trade flows through Hong Kong in their concerns. Predict over Chinese telecoms giant. Why way in its investments and involvement insensitive polyps of western economies? I mean, what's your view on that? You think that is going to affect Hong Kong or you're going to be protected from that? Well, I think it will be foolish to say that we completely ignored. Because after all our economy is very much linked with China today. So what happened between the trae talk between US and China will have effect on Hong Kong, either directly or more like indirectly, so yeah. Sure. But I I just hope that they will manage to work out something because it's certainly not in the interests of both China and the US to escalate any more of these so-called trade tension is this really about trade between the two this rivalry. Do you think is more geostrategic chess board game that's going on? Sure. I think the rise of China. I mean, clearly, I mean, it probably get a little bit uncomfortable to someone. So I think so so I think China needs to be also be smart about this too. While we continue to improve the livelihood of people. We certainly do not want to give this impression to the friends and neighbors that you know, of any of Chinese aggression, because I certainly don't think dozen intention of the government. I think China's government has a bigger problem is their own people. How are you going to continue to improve the livelihood of the one point three billion people and the increasing expectation from the middle class in China? But unfortunately, I think he may have gotten to the nerve of some of the other neighbors, and also I think we need to be careful in the reason speech by presidency. I think the message is changed each day. I think he's gonna make sure that China wants to be very much part of the rest of the world as well. So he's not all about China. So have to be in a global effort. You mentioned how economic prosperity is important for China. And obviously for the people here in Hong Kong, but I put it to you that Hong Kong actually in terms of looking at it as part of China as a whole. Has diminishing economic clout. I mean at the time of the one hundred one thousand nine hundred seven Hong Kong contributed twenty percent of China's GDP. It's now down to three percent. You're not as important as you. Exactly, exactly. What you put it? This is a bigger problem than what we discussed earlier about the Honglin dependent. That is not the problem. The problem is that independence wasn't advocating that I was talking about the rollback of the democratic freedoms enshrined in the. I think the bigger issue we need to ask ourselves. Can we continue to be meaningful to the rest of China? Now our next door neighbor not far from here. John thirty years ago is still a vicious at providence in fishing village today. Oh, my goodness GDP is hopefully even at the same level of Hong Kong, and they another Silicon Valley of China. So all the wild way the tencent all base there. So clearly, we're no longer the only, and of course, thanks to the two system there still certain things that Hong Kong continue to do none of the other cities in China can. But again, though, I mean, we can longer just assume that we can always be the largest contributor to the Chinese economy bad for you mentioned the greater bay area initiative early on in the idea is to integrate Hong Kong, both physically through infrastructure with Macau and also nine cities in Guangdong province, doesn't that religious? Make Hong Kong, then any other China. Not at all. I think the work you chose just now. Integration is. Yes. And no we try to figure out a way how we can take advantage of each other. There are certain things. But we're not integrating bay area with not integrating because we still need to keep that to system. That's why if the special status is still important things that sunshine can do we can. But that's the point. I was making is that this greater bay area. Linking you to Macau and Guangdong province makes you more like any other regular Chinese city is how we can tap on each other strength, for example for the night cities in China. They can now come hopefully in the future, they can access to Hong Kong for say, perhaps like a wealth management products that they have no access to back in those in the cities, but they can come to Hong Kong because we are to to system we have products, and what is healthcare, educations, and wealth management products things that they have no access to a now they have a chance. So I think it's two ways is allowing this bay area this nice cities to take advantage. What the two system can offer to them is it really too. Systems though, because I mean was so many people including even the European parliament in November twenty seventeen has said that look Beijing's constant interference. In Hong Kong puts at risk to use his words, the long-term viability at the one country two systems model..
