Customs makes its biggest tusk bustuangpu Customs Distri

China’s customs officers have seized 2,748 ivory tusks weighing a combined 7.48 metric tons after cracking a major smuggling case.

The case was solved in March after a combined operation of differ

ent customs offices lasting three months. A total of 238 custo

ms officers took part from cities around the country, including Hefei, Nanjing, Beijing, Fuzhou and Qingdao.

Twenty suspects were detained for further investigation, accor

China’s first cinema that shows films in the Burmese language opened in Ruili, Southwest China’s Y

unnan province, on Saturday, as the city celebrated one of its most important festivals, the Water Splashing Festival.

proximately 60,000 Burmese people, accounting for about one-third of its population.

The meetings on Thursday and Friday are all part of

f the 8th Summit of Central and Eastern European Countries & China.

At the China-CEEC economy and trade forum before the leaders meeting, Li called for strengthening trade facilitation and exp

anding two-way opening-up of markets. China is willing to expand imports of goods from CEE nations, particu

larly agricultural products that cater to the demand of Chinese consumers, he said. Trade of farm goods, machine

ry and electric devices should be further boosted and logistics sped up between the trading partners, he said.

Li said trade between China and the 16 CEE nations rose by 21 percent to a record high, de

spite a global trade slowdown. China is willing to strengthen cooperation with CEE nations in infrast

ructure based on market rules and following European Union rules and standards, he said.

Li advocated the great potential for trade and economic cooperation between China a

nd the 16 countries. China-CEEC cooperation is a helpful addition to China-EU ties, he said.

But it doesn’t mean marriage is dead. It just means

 that marriage is no longer the only place where people make all their

major financial and personal decisions, or incur obligations to others,” Coontz said.

“First of all, I haven’t met my Mr. Right. Also, I’m extremely responsible with my own finances – I have to pay my rent and my stud

ent loans every month,” said Michelle Yu, a recent graduate of the University of Southern California, who just s

tarted her first job at a publishing company in Los Angeles. Yu has been single for more than four years.

“So, if my partner also has a ton of student loans or is in a bad financial situation, I’d r

ather be alone,” said Yu. “Now, I can well manage my own money and I’m saving the down payment for bu

ying an apartment in my neighborhood. I like to do that on my own pace.”

Experts said that injuries to firefighters are mainly caused by close contact with flames or explos

ions, or by buildings collapsing as they enter a scene that fire engines have difficulty accessing.

Russia and Germany have also transformed old tanks into firefighting vehicles.

China’s poverty-relief achievements have contributed more than 70 percent to global pover

ty alleviation in the past four decades, a feat acknowledged by the United Nations and the World Bank.

China lifted 740 million people in rural areas out of poverty be

tween 1978 and 2017, or about 19 million people each year, according to the National Bureau of Statis

tics. The country had another 30 million people to lift out of abject poverty, according to the figures.

In 2018, official data showed that 13.86 million people were lifted out of poverty. The go

vernment aims to help another 20 million people in the next two years, in order to eradicate poverty in the country.

According to iiMedia Research, a market consultancy, cross-

-border online shopping in China grew by 20.6 percent year-on-year to 7.6 trillion yuan ($1.1 trillion) in sales in 2017.

The nation is encouraging cross-border e-commerce transactions by easing the annual cap

on cross-border online purchases and adding categories of imports to the duty-free list, according to the Ministry of Finance.

Starting from this year, the annual duty-free quota for cross-borde

r e-commerce purchases for individual buyers will be lifted to 26,000 yuan from the current 20,000 yuan.

“The livestreaming form, as a new operation model for online marketplaces, could settle

the problem of information asymmetry,” said Chen Tao, an analyst with internet consultancy Analysys in Beijing.

Both Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s Taobao and its rival J

D, two of China’s biggest online shopping sites, have launched their own livestreaming platforms.

Shop owners hire livestreamers with large fan bases to help promote their products, and meanwhile, a link to the purchasing page hovers on the streaming screen.

Monica Zhang, who lives in France with her husband, opened an online store on Taobao. She became a livestreamer last year.

Short Brexit delay possible, but conditionalonald Tusk has said

short delay to Brexit is possible, but will be conditional on the House of Commons passing the Withdrawal Agreement.

“The question remains open as to the duration of such an extension,” Tusk, the President of the European Council, said.

Tusk said he spoke to Theresa May on the phone earlier this afternoon.

“May’s proposal of the 30 June, which has its merits, creates a series of questions of a leg

al and political nature,” he added. “Leaders will discuss this tomorrow.”1 hr agoDona

MPs surprised by “downright reckless” strategy, Starmer says
Labour’s Sha

dow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer has opened the emergency debate into the Brexit delay by quoting Ther

esa May’s de facto deputy David Lidington, who said last week that if May’s divorce deal was not passed by parl

iament, seeking “a short and, critically, one-off extension would be downright reckless.”

Starmer says those statements led MPs to believe that May would reques

t a long extension if she hadn’t passed her plan — but May has asked for a delay only until June 30.

He adds that the confusion is symptomatic of May’s Brexit strategy to date — to “put parliament as far away as possible from the process.”

MPs Anne Coffey, Angela Smith, Chris Leslie, Mike Gapes

Luciana Berger, Gavin Shuker and Chuka Umunna announce their resignation from the La

bour Party at a press conference on February 18, 2019 in London, England.

Speaking to the BBC on Tuesday after Ryan’s resignation from the

party, Labour MP Chris Williamson said that he had never known Labour to be “more united

” than it was now, adding it was “regrettable that a minority of MPs” were out of step with the popular mood in the country.

Though many within the party have publicly moved to criticize Ryan’s decision

, her departure will likely fuel concerns that further resignations could follow in the weeks ahead.
In a state

ment after the initial resignations Monday, Corbyn sai

d he was “disappointed that these MPs have felt unable to continue to work together for th

e Labour policies that inspired millions at the last election and saw us increase our vote by the largest share since 1945.”

urope needs economic cooperation, not blind suspicion

Austria’s technology ministry has called on Europe to form a joint position on whether or not to allow Chinese firm Huawei to equip 5G for next-generation mobile networks. This consideration co

mes amid the US-hyped security concerns over Huawei and Washington’s relentless efforts to thwart the 5G efforts of this leading tech company.
5G

will be one of the most critical components of the digital economy and society, not only in China but also Europe. Europe has taken significant ste

ps to lead global developments toward this strategic technology. To reposition itself as a leader in world affairs including the field of technology, Europe h

as no reason to reject cooperation with Huawei which has developed the most advanced 5G technology, disregarding u

nwarranted US claims.
Europe is caught in the middle. While the continent treads carefully between China an

d the US, what is at stake is its own interests. As China tries to offer a cooperative approach, Europe, a longtime US ally, is hesi

ant to accept. The Belt and RoadInitiative proposed by China presents tremendous opportunities in terms of trade and g

rowth, while skepticism lingers in Europe about the geopolitical ambition the initiative may harbor.
Ob

servers believe that the funds allocated by the EU will fall way short of what is really needed. The EU will allocate funding for this project in its ne

xt multiannual budget, which will stretch from 2021 to 2027, but can Europe afford to wait till then to walk out of its current plight?
