Fresh update on "xi jinping" discussed on Fareed Zakaria GPS

"This is GPS, the global public square. Welcome to all of you in the United States and around the world I'm for Aria. Today on the show a special report on fixing the Cova crisis. President trump may say, the pandemic is under control in. America. But that is just not the reality. The country has four capital about fifteen times as many deaths every day as the European Union, and twenty five times as many as Canada. So what went wrong? And what can we do now to get the corona virus under control? We'll talk. To Bill Gates about that. Plus Vaccines Treatments, the US economy ticked on and more. And School is back in session or will be soon. For most kids that means bus rides back always and overcrowded classrooms. Can that be safe in the midst of abandoning? I will ask the former director of the CDC Tom Friedman. Also route. The bustling and beautiful city by the sea. Was Hit by an extraordinary explosion. As the political tragedy of Lebanon finally reached its heart-rending rock bottom. I would. Expand. But first here's my take. This week, the trump administration explicitly announced its intention to work toward a new bipolar world of technology carved up between the United States and China. It announced a sweeping clean network initiative which seeks to ban virtually all Chinese IT products phone carrier's APPS. Cloud servers even undersea cables, Ben Trump issued executive orders, officially banning the Chinese video, APP Tiktok and the messaging APP we chat from operating in the US unless they are sold by mid-september. Taken together these move suggestive reversal of decades of American policy. Instead of favoring global Internet of open systems, open architecture, an open communications, the US now in visions of restricted. Internet. That is cordoned off by governments with political considerations dominating economic or technological wants. Let's be clear. There are legitimate concerns about China's technology strategy. The country is walled off at cyberspace like other country the government can force any Chinese. Company to handover data, and it routinely engages in international espionage to steal intellectual property technology data from other countries. And Twenty Eighteen Bite dance the Chinese company that owns Tiktok was forced to shut a different APP. The young tech savvy. John Yemen published a letter of self-criticism that like a confession at a Stalinist show trial. Quote I profoundly reflect on the fact that a deep level cause of the recent problems in my company is a week understanding and implementation of the four consciousnesses of Xi Jinping. All along. We have placed excessive emphasis on the role of technology and we have not acknowledged that technology must be led by the socialist core value. System Unquote. Yet. Fears about Tiktok do seem overblown the using data on it names email addresses, phone numbers..

Hong Kong marks handover anniversary under shadow of security law

"Could Beijing finally getting it away and silencing Hong Kong's democracy protests once and for all the Chinese President Xi Jinping has signed off strict security laws, which critics say will place the likes of the right of free speech and an independent judiciary at risk. The law has already had an effect one of the leading voices in the pro democracy. Movement Joshua Wong said he's left. One protest group what I'm joined by Monocle Asia editor and Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers by Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue Welcome both backed Monaco for twenty four at James, let's begin with you. You are in Hong. Kong whether has been A marking of the twenty three years since British rule ended. What's the atmosphere like today? Yes, what was meant to be called establishment day a day of celebration for Hong Kong returned back to mainland, but for a lot of people here it's a solemn day to protest against. Beijing and usually there's a big march that takes place around three PM Hong Kong time in about an hour and leave from Victoria in Causeway Bay and on March to the government headquarters that hasn't been given permission to go ahead to see the police because of the COVID, nineteen restrictions but there are people starting to gather in Causeway Bay. and the police have already made their first arrest under this new national security bill. On the question, we're all asking waiting to see how this bill would be enforced. And I guess the the worrying onset is. Enforced very harshly. The first arrest was a guy who's who had a flag that just said Hong Kong independence on it. So there's no doubt that the police are going to use their full powers under under this bill to dampen down any goals. For Hong Kong independence, and it's going to have a massive impact on the ability of of activists and pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. To to to operate as they have done. For the last twenty three years. Where unlikely to see a big march this year like we did in years before because the police on hand, the right police are on the ground and are very quick to to arrest people. Isabel. It's not long since we were all given the details of what's in this bill. Could you just summarize it for us? Please well indeed. I think almost nobody outside the National People's. Congress was given the details until after the bill was rushed through a rigorous fifteen minute session. it criminalizes any act of secessions, version, terrorism, or collusion with foreign are external forces. The problem with all of those is who decides Schwarzenegger as secessions, version, terrorism, glues, and and exchange, said the question of how the law will be enacted. Is ABS will be? We'll be applied is absolutely critical including which judges. How will the? How will the legal authorities in Hong Kong React Carrie, Lam has the opportunity to appoint judges that she chooses. And the bill, also the acts now also contains a rather sinister provision. Which says that in got his described as complicated cases at Beijing can simply takeover the prosecution of the law now again. All of this is is. Subject to subjective judgment from Beijing, Beijing designs what collusion with Foreign or external forces Beijing decides. What subversion is and Beijing, can prosecute cases? There is no guarantee that they will be held in. Public is provision for them not to be and. Given the state of of the rule of law in China. I think this is really really serious concern. It's also we should remember the. Legal State in Hong. Kong has been robust and widely respected and indeed lawyers have frequently taken to the streets to defend their. That profession and the application of the law in Hong Kong in very large demonstrations when they felt that Beijing. was encroaching on it, and so the capacity to appoint different judges to these cases is signed that I didn't think Beijing trusts Hong Kong's lawyers who are after school didn't principles of rule of law and equality before the law and all those good things. To do it's will.

Hong Kong tensions rattle world stock markets, oil tumbles

"But we begin tonight with the latest flare-up in China Beijing announcing new security measures against Hong Kong sending the Hang Sang Towards. Were Day in almost five years the move escalating tensions with the United States with President trump threatening quote unquote strong reaction to that crackdown. So does China become bigger headwind for the markets as we head into the summer painting. Adjarian what do you say? Yeah you know Mel. It seems like there's always a different story every single day. That seems to lead us either up or down right on literally every day whether it's earnings one day that we focus on that the employment numbers the next day China one day the virus of course and somebody having sort of a vaccine of some sort or another is always something leading the market. So what I was encouraged. Today was the news yesterday and today about China and the US and some of the issues that we're going to be facing probably going forward. It seems to me like we've shaken that off pretty well. It's been pretty impressive. Ability of the markets just say you know what because we could have very easily slid down today and ben down four hundred points going into the weekend like we were a Friday or two ago? So I was very encouraged by that. I continue to watch the volatility index of course extremely close and I'm encouraged by the fact that we aren't seeing huge spikes anymore and we're seeing this contracted movement I think that's a much healthier environment and by the way. I think that everybody wants to focus on the big five. It's not the big five. It's biotech there's a lot of different areas of the marketplace that are giving us a foundation. I think four more upside to come in the future either shaking off the worries about China or just not coming to grips with reality. Jeff Mills what do you make of what is going on with China? I mean what's also interesting? Is that the Communist. Party has abandoned giving growth targets which they normally do Some say that that could show that Xi Jinping. Maybe a little bit on his back with that he's he's feeling a little bit cornered here because growth in China is slowing down and he needs to take control over Hong Kong before what could be a losing election for the Communist Party in September. Yeah look I think. It's indicative of the Global Growth Picture. I mean China withdrawing its growth forecasts we're seeing with a company earnings here in the US. So and I would expect to see more tensions with China quite. Frankly think you're going to see more bills. Come to Congress via unanimous consent. I think it's unpopular to try to block those bills. Now if you look at the dollar one relationship for example I know there are other things going on but it looks a lot more like it did pre-trade deal than it did after the trade deal so I think could be sniffing out some problems there and really the bullish narrative right now. I think is massive fiscal monasteries. Monetary stimulus reopening progression. All of these things. I just don't know in combination if that's going to be enough to drive earnings enough to justify the market where it is right now if you look over the past twenty years the correlation between the S. and P. Five hundred and Ford. Eps estimates is point nine since the bottom on March twenty third. It's been the mirror image of that. It's been negative point nine. So the market's been going up. Earnings estimates have been coming down. And I don't know that the economic environment is such that we're going to see a massive recovery in earnings estimates and we've also talked about the pain trade being higher and I was in that camp a couple of weeks ago. I think we're moving away from that. The put call ratio extremely low. It's actually below point five three right now. The last time that happened was January twenty eighteen than earlier this year. We both we all know what happened. Following both of those instances and then also you're finally starting to see money flow out of money market funds and now the head at the headwind of the two hundred eight moving average. I think there's a lot of things against the market right now. I wouldn't be surprised. Frosted traits were sideways down from here. That's a lot for bear to chew on My Co. you agree with what Jeff Mills is saying. Do and also some of the things that Pete was saying as well. I mean a couple of things that we can look at the markets forward. Look at what we can expect over the coming months. The vix index which basically is a measure of the market's expectation of forward volatility. Actually dropped a little bit today. Even despite this news at you're coming out of China but the important thing is that China News. This is coming after day after day. After day it's steady drip of just sort of increasingly negative sentiment on the China Front so. I don't think that we should have anticipated. Necessarily the market was going to sell up eventually. Investors become a little bit anesthetize when you can continue to hear the same bad news. It doesn't have sort of the shock and awe that's going to drive the market lower instead. I think basically what Jeff is talking about is what we should be paying attention to which is what do we really think. Eps For for a lot of these larger companies. It's GonNa look like some of them obviously are more immune to what's going on but others certainly are not their big swats of publicly traded companies that are GONNA be facing considerable pressure for some period of time. And we've had quite a bounce off the bottom and I actually kind of feel you have the opportunity. You might be wanting to pair some of those positions a little bit here. I can completely see the bear case at the same time Brian Kelly. We know that companies are are in for tough road ahead at the same time. I think that the reopening of America has happened probably faster than what a lot of people think. And I'm not talking about a complete reopening of course but all fifty states on some level have reopened at to some degree and I would think that that's probably a lot faster than what many people thought just a couple of months ago when we were sort of in the depths of this pandemic. Yeah I think that's probably right and I think also the fact that we're unsure how people are going to react when things reopen so when you start to see beaches reopened you. Start to see parks reopen. And they're crowded again. That's a different story but to me if I look at the market here we're talking about China and we're talking about the reopening and recovery from this vaccine so the bull case here is that the Federal Reserve's going to pump enough liquidity GonNa buy enough corporate bonds that companies can ride out the storm however long that takes the bear case. Is We get some kind of second wave? And or we have a serious kind of trade dispute or D. Globalization going on with China to me globalization. Argument is a lot is worse. I don't know if it's worse than the virus necessarily but it's probably a longer term headwind for the market so that's where we are. Those are the bulletin the bear cases and pizza at the beginning to show every day. There's something else driving it. The markets trying to decide investors are trying to decide and we're at a decision point in the mocking so to me if I look into the next couple weeks. I think that's going to determine what the next six months look

Hong Kong opposition slams China national security law move

"In Hong Kong Pro Democracy lawmakers are blasting China's move to enact national security legislation. They believe this legislation could mark the end of the One Country. Two System Arrangement that has given Hong Kong semi autonomy. Since the end of British rule in nineteen ninety-seven the move by China emerged from this week's national legislative session and event that largely serves as a rubber stamp for what the Communist Party in Beijing wants to do. Cnn's Ivan Watson joins us from Hong Kong via skype and Ivan. I can you explain what this new legislation can actually mean for Hong Kong. I think it's important to stress. How different Hong Kong is from the rest of mainland China to people? Who may not know? It's the free as corner of the People's Republic of China and it was supposed to stay largely autonomous until two thousand forty seven and govern itself while being part of China so here the Internet isn't censored and the courts are independent of the political leadership and can rule against it. None of that exists in mainland China. And what the Communist Party has now announced is in the interest of national security. It is not going to dictate a whole series of laws and criminalize actions down here in Hong Kong with a heavy handed approach and a direct approach that it has never had until today. I mentioned the One Country Two System Arrangement I mean. Does this in effect then end that arrangement but certainly would hongkongers from the opposition and elected legislator who are critics of the Communist Party in mainland China? That's they're saying. This is the end of Hong Kong as we know it. And when you see. The list of what is proposed here which includes Criminalising treason secession in sedition against the Chinese government authorizing the National Security Agency of mainland China to set up offices down here in Hong Kong secret police. All of that suggests a very dramatic shift here and something that this city has never really seen in modern times. Is this retribution. For those democracy protests we've been seeing in Hong Kong over the last year the central government in China and the Hong Kong administrators. Who are by Beijing have been defending these new national security proposals arguing that the protests were a threat to national security in all of China. And thus they have to do this. There've been some caveats saying hey freedom of speech freedom assembly all those things that you have known they will be untouched. But if you've ever been in mainland China and seeing what a police state it is there and how any dissent is absolutely crushed very quickly. It's very clear that the national security rubric can be used as an excuse to almost stop anything in mainland China. So why wouldn't that be any different down here? All of this. All of these decisions are happening as we speak in real time. But I'm wondering how will this resonate in the region with the people? They are particularly in Hong Kong. There is alarmed for instance. One man I spoke with your. He runs a photo printing shop. He said this is taking us backwards and he. Also this is ominous. He said his WHATSAPP GROUP WITH HIS CHILDHOOD. Friends has completely dried up today in response to this now. Couple of points. Whatsapp doesn't exist in mainland China. The there's such censorship it also suggests that immediately ordinary people are worried that what they may message. Each Other presumably in privacy could be used against them in the future. What's next Ivan in this process? The opposition here is calling for protests which died down over the last five months as this city was dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and as the threat of that pandemic receded here. The old political divisions were starting to bubble up again. Beijing has shot a very strong shot across the bow here and recall that last year. You Up to two million people protesting against these types of measures. That's two out of every seven. Hong Kongers were out in opposition. That even if they manage to generate that kind of popular protests right now it does not seem like Xi Jinping. The ruler of China is

Exporting Authoritarianism

"I will relate that interesting story. The president of Kazakhstan actually visited a company called hike. Vision is another one that provides surveillance technology visit their office in China and he saw how with one. Click on a person's face. You could get that person's school history work history financial situation. Wow and wait for it. How did this person spend his or her leisure time? So where did this person go to have fun? Did you go to the movies? Did you stop by the bank to go to the post office where you hang out with friends? Did you participate in a protest and his reaction after seeing all of this was we need this technology. That's not where I thought the story was going. This is probably not the first time you're hearing about China's surveillance technology and that's because it gets a lot of coverage it's like a Black Mirror episode. It gives us visions of a dystopia in future but this technology and the eagerness of some countries to begin implementing. It is only a small part of a much bigger story about China through its belt and road initiative China's in the process of building and funding infrastructure projects across the globe and loaning vast sums of money in the developing world. Some observers argued that as it does this. China is also exporting its authoritarian model of government and eroding democratic norms. That many of us take for granted others say that China is simply taking business opportunities where it sees them and providing countries with an alternative to a global order that has gone unchallenged for decades. The debate comes down to one question. How will we choose to view China as they pour money into hospitals ports and roads around the World I'm Gabrielle? Sierra and this is why it matters today is China exporting authoritarianism. I think the most important thing to understand about China's foreign policy over the past ten years or so is that it really has been transformed. This is Elizabeth Economy. She's a senior fellow and director for Asia. Studies here at the council. She's also a distinguished visiting fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution beginning in about two thousand and eight with global financial crisis China's hosting the Olympics. These are really moments that defined in the minds of many Chinese leaders that China was rising. Chinese have many goals for these Olympics. One of them was to announce to the world. The China is back after two hundred years. China's economy has grown faster than that of any other major country. The Asian giant has now grown into one of the most important export markets for manufacturers from all over. The world is a period of historic change in China. There haven't been many periods in history as fascinating as this so there was a real sense within China for the first time that they had always expected that at some point China was going to surpass the United States but maybe that time was coming sooner than they anticipated. But what really has changed the game on the ground has been Xi Jinping everything for Xi Jinping is under the mantra of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and it is a call for reclaiming a much greater degree of centrality for China on the global stage. Xi Jinping became China's president in two thousand thirteen some observers have called him the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong. Look I think there are any number of objectives and we can find them all and Xi Jinping's writings and speeches but fundamentally what I think. Xi Jinping attempting to do is simply to make the world safer authoritarianism. Teaching is a dictator but dictators. Still have to answer to domestic constituents. This is Jessica. Chance Weiss associate professor of government at Cornell and a leading expert on Chinese politics. She has a different take on China's expansion. One that sees it as being less offensive and more defensive. China's concerned about a whole lot of different risks. Some of them domestic others ones. That emanate from abroad sparks. That might start the prairie fire and bring down the Chinese government and might take units overriding purpose is to continue to make the world safe for the Chinese Communist Party to strive at home. So this is a world that safe for autocracy to coexist alongside democracy in the international space. So it's not been as ideological I think and it's foreign policy is some admitted. It out to be so. China is trying to find a way to sort of fit in with a world. That might not be comfortable with its model of government tried to make space for its form of government to be regarded as one that can continue to exist that is legitimate than democracy isn't the only form of government so to speak and so this has made it easier for other authoritarian states to survive

Over the next six month New Zealand will pay gun owners to hand over the weapons that being banned nationwide, since a mass shooting killed fifty one people in Christ Church, a March man from Australia, who describes himself, as a what supremacist opened fire inside two mosques, New Zealand's gun, buyback program is the latest development in the nation's gun reform loss. Join us to discuss this effort is Patrick Flannery, as Patrick this gun buyback program comes three months after the shootings, this will to most gun, you New Zealand and how this work. Yeah, it will apply to most guns, the shootings as we know happened March fifteenth, so barely three months ago in this, this latest step is kind of a reminder about how quickly New Zealand has responded to the worshiping in its history. The prime minister just Arden and parliament immediately committed to changing gun culture, and they have really progressed rapidly. We know just weeks after the shootings New Zealand. Band most semi on on automatic weapons. Parliament budgeted a lot of money to pay gun owners for them to hand over the guns that are now banned, and they'll, of course be reimbursed for those that'll start next month when police begin collecting guns and it'll happen in a number of ways police will host events where you can just hand them over in different towns, you can work with an approved gun dealer. Police will come to your house in some cases to pick it up. The bottom line is QA gun owners are more than happy to go ahead and start doing this. They've already begun, and they have until late December to turn in those weapons. How many guns do police expect to recover in this program, and our most Kiwis supportive of this little most of them, are they reported about seven hundred as of yesterday guns of already been handed over voluntarily, really this program doesn't begin until mid-july? They estimate about fifteen thousand semiautomatic weapons are going to be handed over as New Zealand a safer place today than it was on Marsh. Eighteen that's a great question. Because it takes into account that the, the worshiping they ever had was was very much an outlier for New Zealand. But it's most people don't realize is New Zealand has a lot of guns. It's one in four people is a gun, owner of the five million people live in New Zealand, New Zealand ranks number seventeen in the world for the numbers of guns per person. And we know that parliament is still working on another amendment to address its own issues regarding gun registry..

That is really I know strategic calculation how to disarm North Korea. Now, they don't have much consideration outline other consideration. But for South Korea is more than that it's about economic accomplishing. It's about unity, create future. And so they have different agenda. But now, South Korea, the calling for a third summit say if this summit it delayed. Again, again, of course we're not talking about the plan. Third summit anyway, say if such a gap getting longer widen wider. And then in as I said, the efforts would be somehow, you know, running out of steam, new eight has been languishing for some months, and what would happen. Next people have this concern. They're also people who call for the return of multilateral channels like the six party talks, which being stalled for years. They argue the bilateral way. I mean only talk. Between the US and North Korea cannot self issue. What's your take is easy to take that channel back yet to give a like a deal credit to the six party talks? Of course, in a way it is easier because you have the assurance not link from the US, but also from other parties, for example, China, Russia, South Korea in Japan. So it's in sense, is you're probably to have North Korea fuel assured that if the roadmap the US will follow that road map. But now it's really between south North Korea, and the United States. If there's a they have direct channels, ROY now it's like more like a game between the. Came and Trump. I I'm not sure they will be happy if you rob them of their game right now. So you say you bring other players like China of South Korean in Rheinau.

Now we're joined by shoot into our chief political analyst, so in general, how significance is to stay. Visit by the Chinese president opinion this time, well ballots. A steady visit itself is significant usually in the wizard state. Visit it means a new chapter opening a new type of relationship will for the strengthening of ballot ties. And of course when the come to China and North Korea, this is the first step visit by Chinese national leader in fourteen years. So that's something obviously, for Bala ties. It is also a.

In preparing to meet the US leader, Donald Trump, so to kick start the, the peace process, physically to get rid of the nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting sanctions in such as China has played very important role. So this is our third level. You can see that is a multilateral, not impotent, China and North Korea but also larger platform that is criminal on north East Asia peace stability, China as a very important. China is playing a unique role in courage in the North Korean side to take a boat step to start the negotiation process with the US side. And you know that has succeeded in two summits. So talking about if initial situation, Russia and China this week delayed, a US request for a UN Security Council sanctions committee to demand eight. Halt to deliveries of refined petroleum to North Korea. It's belief North Korea's slipping international trade including the trade between Beijing and Pignon has also illustrated the negative impact of the current deadlock. So what would be on the agenda for original countries like China and South Korea over assistance to? Yes, the larger by grown, of course, is the UN sanctions on those Korea. And of course, we know since February, the Hanoi summit between Trump and came basically that summit ended in expectedly without too much achievement in the sense. So since then, the efforts has been running out of steam, let's say, so that's a probably part of the reason why president Xi Jinping is in Korea to help that say re kick start the process and the sim time, I think China, Russia and. And South Korea. Basically think that North Korea has made some concessions by excising high degree of restraint not launch an in nuclear missile test of the past year..

Opinions was. Turkey regarding the in-depth cooperation between the two countries and our news stencils. So for more on those were now joined by Herman laurel, his the founder of the Philippines, Brooks strategic. Studies scrip a think tank on the Philippines in global affairs. Good evening. Good evening. So missiles, all you think you good evening, Janis Philippines relations winnow, it has reached a low point back in two thousand sixteen because of disputes over the South China Sea. But now things are changing since president deter to coffees and we see the two countries they are reengaging to negotiations on the South China Sea, and they are talking about joint exploration. So how would you describe the Bala ties at the moment? Well, I would describe it a presidency Jingping also described it perfectly in his speech here. In Manila, expanding the start in northern part of the world. It's getting quite cold like in Beijing. But here in Manila, he is treated with warm weather, and he called it the rainbow after the rainbow. So it is a perfect today. It has been a turnaround that has been a chief in the past two and half years with president and president Xi Jinping's. Excellent performance in Nava gate things through the rough waters that are stirred up by some elements. So we are looking forward to many many more developments in this direction. It has been of course, even more auspicious for the Philippines. As we are enjoying the goodwill of China, which is helping helping us develop many of our long pending projects from train systems, reproduce roads. And so on. So to your question. How would you describe the BI lateral eighties? Perfect today, especially government to government. They're still a lot of work between the Chinese side. And our people we need more. She stunts that directly impact the individual lives of certain poor sectors of our society today, most of the dealings between state to state the state government to government, which is alright because that is what is needed for the great lack of infrastructure in our country, which China is assisting in and hopes are already very high. The projects have been delivered very fast two years. And there have been several groundbreaking projects. Already to donate the bridges from China. A water supply. The future water supply system has also been inaugurate to massive drug rehabilitation centers in and many others. But the big ticket projects will be signed by presidency Jingping and and president in this historic visit. So it is a very good time for our bilateral ties in in terms of the sound shown is the I guess that remains potential flashpoint. But Turney has risen we said that everything has been excellent between China and the rest of our Seon spent for except for the frictions between western nations in China. So what do you make of his assessment of? Understand those who understand the true situation and understand the strategy of president the third day. There is no concern at all about the South China Sea issue. There are elements who control much of our media. These are all left over from the twentieth century era of several colonial domination and so on and the ruling class which control the neo-colonial ruling class, which still control much of the economy and much of the media, especially they have even C N N in the Philippines. So which is a version of the American CNN and throughout this passed this afternoon, they had a continuing coverage, and they insert certain. I times that are not accept. Really true and not very good for the impressions about this ongoing engagement of China in the Philippines, but that's one very small sector of our society.

So with the charting slogans with the showing of propaganda videos with all these materials that are supposed to convince people of the greatness of Xi Jinping, the one does the Chinese state, and so on people sleep sort of six to eight to room there's very little to do. And as was the main comes themselves, which have a population. We think of about a million people as I think about two million people who having to go to classes during the day.

I have a question about the way China really uses technology to is China using pressing tools here in the technological space to to accomplish a feat horribly remarkable is this well, this a huge network of cameras and electronic checks throughout Xinjiang. So it almost every point when you travel through the region nowadays, and this is substantially increased in the last few years. Your ideas checked now every Chinese citizen is expected to KAI national ID card at all times anyway, but in the course of typical day in say Beijing, it's never checked. But in shin giants much more like continue series of checkpoints at Shah. Ping moles a buses so fuel taking bus through the region. You'll be the bus will be pulled over you know, sort of once every hour or two and everybody's ide- will be checked and those ideas connect to a central registry. So that people who not whether supposed to be can be identified. One of the things we've seen over the last few years is weakest systematically pushed out of the rest of China and back into Xinjang. So the week population by djing where I had a lot of contacts friends has massively diminished. I would say is down by ninety percent ninety five percent. So you have the have this population forced back to Xinjiang and then subject to vase from controls. But most of the infant is done by simple manpower. So hundreds of thousands of hundred as officials have been sent to live with Wieger in their families to effectively act as sort of spies. In the home. And they often instance tried to get them to eat pork, demonstrate their loyalty because a lot of the symbols of Islam have become seen as symbols of separatism or resistance any level of religious faith, seems to be one of the keys, particularly for young men that can get you sent to the comes. And a lot of the coverage has focused on the high stuff. They were talking about a second ago like really high textile. We're talking China's Social Credit score, which is a way of Sesing, the quality of a person, basically and giving them privileged access to certain certain types of state institutions. Right. And then you also have facial recognition software as examples of things that people have really brought up this tools used to identify repress individual weaker is to what extent is that actually the situation on the ground. So most of this is not really true. Most of the technology is technology that could have been put in place ten or fifteen years ago in the west it simply the scale the is. Elementary which these technologies obeying trout in Xinjiang in terms of how much of this. Can we do how much of this slows down everyday life? How much this does this cripple the economy? This kind of thing. Social Credit doesn't exist. The western reporting on it has been terrible.

Nation telecoms, healthcare and cultural sectors, while protecting foreign investors interests and enhancing punitive enforcement for infringement of intellectual property. She has announced plans to extend a free trade zone in Shanghai, which was set up in two thousand thirteen to facilitate deepening reform and opening up. Meanwhile, Tana will build up a new board dedicated to tech startups at the Shanghai Stock Exchange for more on those my colleague, gene, hone earlier spoke was on her tongue Tongan author and columnist and Winston one matted interrupt of ship. Stone group limited so Winston, president Xi Jinping's address among day laundry echoed his earlier remarks in a speech at the boiler foreign for Asia. Backing in April any new take away for you. From today's address. I think it's he's reinforcing the message and to a wider audience because always base. Weekly focused on Asia. Now, these imported expo is targeted at much broader bay. And he's reinforcing the message that China will be committed to further opening up, and that is that is very important message because of the disputes between China and the United States and also against the background where you see the writing protectionist movements or sentiments, and he's trying to hold the, you know, free-trade banner and can set an example by you know, what he does not only just say it will be a powerful message. So I know I guess a lot of those international companies joining events stay or somehow stuck in this kind of dilemma there on one hand they need to maintain their sharing the need to do business with China. But on the other hand that feel like all if they are like too, much engage. In west China with the Chinese government sponsored events they would somehow make make make people like Trump on happy. But somehow of the remarks from president Xi Jinping is somehow making them comfortable, and like one instance that reassuring some of the long term messages promises Chinese authorities half being making so what is your take? Well, I I like to look at it in terms of the broader context that since the out for what what have we seen here we've seen India in China getting closer together you've seen trilateral between South Korea and also Japan making a new significance with meetings between the leaders and things like that this signals that there's an Asian century. That's coming up. It also says that China is playing is not putting all of its egg in the US basket. And there's good reasons for that, regardless of whether it's Trump or democrat a lot. Out of the same issues intentions are going to be there. And a lot of same postures will be will be part of that. So well, Trump might be more rude. Moral playground bully, you know, the same pressures being pushed by somebody who's seemingly nicer it just says long-term this is not an area where you can get much traction. So China's look world's Asian. They say, look, here's the US. According to the OECD, the US exported two point two trillion dollars worth of goods and services last year. Let's go to the EU twenty eight nation states. They exported eight point three trillion four times as much as US. So you know, it brings into sharp relief number questions. Why is the world trading in dollars? When the the petrodollars set up when the US was the main demand agent. Pour oil from. The Middle East. How it's now it's much larger than the US last month became the largest oil producer in the world at eleven point five million barrels per day, and it's not the largest trading. So you're starting to see a lot of leakages people's into currency swaps. As they start looking at other things, I think there's a move towards looking at a basket of currencies rather than just one single currency to create value. You know, look at all the countries out there who are being killed by the fact that their currencies has been devalued get dollars. So their dollar loans are now in some cases twice expensive 'cause they lost fifty percent of their value versus dollar. So looking at trade looking at the monetary system looking at long-term connections, where they you can build markets where you have friendly groups who are dedicated trait like the eat you like Japan likes out pre like, Osceola like Africa, like South America, basically like..

"Flight to Taiwan. Anytime. Soon in you have become perhaps unwittingly involved in the latest chapter of the long running fight between Taipei by Beijing over who owns a self-governed island last week, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, and United Airlines began to remove references to Taiwan as a separate country and Taipei is furious. Well, I'm during two now in the studio by David Schlesinger hit a former Reuters editor-in-chief and expert on China. Well, by this DJ David, why is this happening now? Well, I think right now you have to look at what's happening with the tensions between the US and China. You have to look at China's own economic difficulties in the moment, and it's always good to play a nationalist power card when you had troubles at home. I think that president Xi Jinping of China sees an opportunity to have a quick win domestically by showing that he's very tough on the Taiwan issue and to show that he can get a foreign companies to bow to his wishes, any succeeded. So it's a win for him. It's American Airlines in the American swathe has just arrived at just joined in. But we've already seen the likes of British Airways and Lufthansa have already changed their that their country cares their their their, their destination codes. It's actually quite a confusing system that's been put in place, isn't it? Well, look the name humiliations in the name compromises over Taiwan, have a long history since nineteen Eighty-four Taiwan has competed in the. Olympic Games as Chinese Taipei, and then the all important World Trade Organization, it's known by a very, very long name. Indeed. Let me see if he can get this all out is known as the separate customs region of Taiwan Peng who Jim and Madhu bracket Chinese Thai closed bracket. So we're not come chicane when you know, where are you going on holiday? I'm going to separate customs region of but up today. So the name humiliations have a long history. The compromises have a long history. China has the power. It can basically push things along what makes Taiwan so nervous until unhappy about this is that it's a sign that Beijing is not giving up. Beijing is not going to stop. What's next? Is it going to be telling people that telling countries that they shouldn't accept the Taiwan? I mean the Republic of China passport. I mean at the moment, the Taiwan passport is very well accepted. You get a visa, free access to one hundred and forty-eight countries. That's not quite as good as a US or UK. Is work, but it's very, very good. It's like it's number twenty six in the world. Will will that be next on the pressure list and the issue that many people are saying have noticed that it's it's the the United States companies holding back until until lost week that the United States has put up a resistance to to to switching over. It's it's description of Taipei. Why do you think that the US has held back for so long will the US has a long history of being a staunch ally of Taiwan. It's the only country that sells weapons on a regular basis to the island, but the US has since nineteen Seventy-nine has had a one China policy. So I, the US accepts that there is, but one China simply has a fudge where it doesn't actually say what that means for the island itself. And of course, in June the US just opened a very large quasi embassy triple the size of its old one, the it's called the. Institute, Taiwan not called an embassy. There's no embassador people who staff that quote, unquote embassy have to resign from the diplomatic service before they do it. So there are always compromises, but the US has been about as close to Taiwan as you can be these days while still being friends with China, we have this issue now that we have companies doing business in China. Often finding themselves struggle struggling to balance the demands of of what the. Of what the Chinese damone business to be like when it works in China, but also the fact that they have that ideological pressure saying, we can't actually just do exactly what paging tells us to. I think the real question for business is where where does it end? If it's simply a matter of changing dropdown menu, that's actually not a huge deal. If you go to the American Airlines menu and you look up Glasgow, it doesn't say Glasgow, Scotland says, Glasgow coma, United Kingdom..
