8809

Earlier this year, China announced adding 5 million more hectares to its 42 million already connected farmland and shooting for 60 million hectares by 2022.

China’s Hidden Economic Time Bomb

56424232

The China government statistical agency just released economic data showing the poorest GDP growth in almost 30 years for China.

The underlying far more serious problem is an emerging disaster…

778855

Huawei’s flagship smartphone, the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, launched without Google products being available on it due to US restrictions against Chinese companies (and specifically against Huawei itself).

Why Russia and China Stand Together

Hong Kong Protests: Fading Foreign Tantrum, Not Genuine Revolution

CHIH7544

Hong Kong is Scared – of the Rioters

HK1

It was once a British police station, as well as the Victoria Prison Compound. Hong Kong inhabitants used to tremble just from hearing its name mentioned.

US is Behind Hong Kong Protests Says US Policymaker

POMP

The US continues to deny any involvement in ongoing unrest in China’s special administrative region of Hong Kong. However, even a casual look at US headlines or comments made by US politicians makes it clear the unrest not only suits US interests, but is spurred on almost exclusively…
