Hong Kong has agreements on extradition arrangem

angements with 20 jurisdictions. The Chinese mainland, Macao and Taiwan are not among them.

The revision was triggered by a murder case in which a Hong Kong ma

n, Chan Tong-kai, allegedly killed his pregnant girlfriend in Taiwan and then fled back to the c

ty. The Taiwan authorities are unable to prosecute him as the two sides have no fugitive transfer arrangements.

During the meeting, Han also hailed the contribution of the Hong Kong Federation of Fujian Associations in pro

moting exchanges and cooperation between Hong Kong and the mainland, as well as its efforts in maintaining Hong Kong’s

prosperity and stability. He hoped that the organization can continue to firmly safeguard national sovereignty.

weather, and the provincial government recently announ

nced that when conditions are right, artificial means will be used to make rain.

Chen Lijuan, the chief weather forecaster of the National Climate Center, sai

d rain is on the way to the northeast and will arrive next week. That should alleviate the

drought, but dry conditions will continue to make things worse in Yunnan, she said.

Zhou Wenyi, a 26-year-old from Kunming, Yunnan province, said that the weather is very strange this year.

“The climate of Yunnan is kind of like the southeastern Asian countr

ies, where April and May are the two hottest periods before the rainy season arrives. The hig

hest temperature in Yunnan’s summer period usually is around 21 to 22 C,” she said.

According to locals like Ahmat, the Lop Nur people fished for food in the area famous for the

vast Lop Nur lake, where historically the Tarim River ended. The lake dried up not long after the water in the

river had gone. As such, many fishermen packed away their rods and instead pursued herding and farming.

“When I was a child, I never ate fish. Nor did I ever see my grandfather or father go fishing,” says Ahmat.

When the ‘black storms’ struck, I could see nothing, and the shee

p couldn’t find their way home,” he recalled of the sandstorms in the old days.

“Nothing could be seen when a black storm hit, and nothing was left after the sto

rm,” says Wang Jianben, 74, who lives on a farm some 100 km away from Ahmat’s village.

“Most of the crops would be blown away, and the farmers had to replant the crops three to four times in a single spring.”

The ministry made the remarks after the United States gover

nment late last week ordered its tech companies to cut ties with China’s Huawei and put a number of Chinese comp

anies on an export blacklist , which makes it almost impossible for listed companies to purchase US-made goods.

Gao Feng, ministry spokesman, said China will

provide consumers in various countries with quality, reliable and diverse products.

The Chinese government is confident it will protect the legitimate

rights and interests of Chinese companies, he said Thursday at a news conference.

The misuse of the state power by the US to suppress Chinese companies not only seriously undermines the commercial cooper

ation between companies on both sides, but poses a serious threat to the safety of the global industrial chain, he said.

Huawei CEO addresses US ban, 5G and users’ rights

Ren said in an interview with Chinese media in Shenzhen on Tuesday that “We are very grateful to the

US companies. They have made a lot of contributions to us. Many of our consultants are from American companies such as IBM.

“We can make chips as good as those made by US companies, but it does not mean that we will not buy chips from them,” Ren added.

He said the company will not exclude US chips. “Instead, we should grow together. But if there is a

supply shortage, we have a backup. In the “peace period”, half of our chips are from the US companies and half

from Huawei. We cannot be isolated from the world.”Ren also highlighted that Huawei’s 5G plan will not be affected by

the US ban. “Others will definitely not be able to catch up with Huawei in 5G technologies for two or three years,” he said.

employment, especially for college students, is of great

importance for economic development and social stability.

To better secure the employment of

graduates, government at all levels issued policies to redu

ce discriminatory practices these new

graduates may encounter when hunting for a job.

For example, the Ministry of Human

Resource and Social Security said in February that employees are not allowed to def

ine positions based on gender or to ask for a female job-seekers’ marital status, to protect women’ rights in the job market.

Also, the Ministry of Education required colleges to reinforce campus recruitment activ

ities, prohibiting discriminatory information concerning gender, nationality and college levels.

According to the ministry, the number of college graduates is projected to reach a record high of 8.34 million this year, up by 140,000 from 2018.

In 2015, World Animal Protection developed an initiati

ive, calling for animal-friendly tours and for tour operators worldwide to keep wild animals in

the wild where they belong. It gained support from many travel agencies. By the end of last year, mo

Although some travelers are still not fully aware of the concept of animal-friendly tra
