Hong Kong Debates Wild Boar Problem as Chinese New Year of the Pig Dawns
5th February 2019

 HONG KONG—One of the world’s most densely populated cities, Hong Kong, is facing a proliferation of wild boars as the large mammals stray increasingly into built-up areas.

And while some residents welcome sightings of the boars as a symbol of good fortune, especially with the arrival of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Pig on Feb. 5, others say reports of attacks show that the wild pigs are becoming a danger.
 
The global financial hub isn’t well-known for its biodiversity, but with 40 percent of its land area comprised of protected country parks and reserves, it still harbors creatures such as boar, barking deer, porcupine, otters, threatened pangolins, giant Burmese pythons and more than 530 species of bird, some of which are highly endangered.
 
Continued urbanization of the city of 7.4 million people is now increasingly drawing droves of wild boar to the fringes of the teeming metropolis. Boars have charged hikers, raided garbage dumps and campsites, and even scampered through a shopping mall and a runway at the airport.
Most Hong Kong wild boars, at this point, have already lost their fear of humans,” said Roni Wong, a member of a community group campaigning for the protection of wild boars.
 
“The cause of it is feeding, which causes them to lose their natural instincts,” added Wong, who has identified numerous spots where residents feed wild animals in violation of local wildlife
 protection laws.
The habituation of boars to humans has brought some safety concerns. Complaints against wild pigs have more than doubled since 2013; more than 700 incidents were reported in 2017, including some attacks on people.
 
“A lot of residents who used to take part in outdoor leisure activities, especially at night, are no longer doing that,” said Jeremy Young, a district councilor for the Peak, an affluent area with a conspicuous boar population in its woods.
 
“They are scared. You don’t want to run into a 250-pound male pig with tusks.”
 
The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) said in a statement to Reuters that some pigs “pose imminent risks to public safety, particularly those which have attacked people, or are accustomed to searching for food around built-up areas and also getting easily irritated.”
 
Young believes the government should again allow the selective culling of boars by “civilian hunting teams” to mitigate the threat, a practice that was suspended in 2017 after an outcry by animal-rights groups. The AFCD, however, rejected this proposal.
 
Instead, AFCD said it would take measures to put down, or relocate troublesome pigs to wilder areas, and to fit some with GPS trackers.
 
Authorities say they don’t know the size of Hong Kong’s wild pig population, or if numbers have actually increased, or whether they’re just venturing more frequently into urban areas.
 
“Most Hongkongers won’t mind the wild boars,” said 40-year-old taxi driver Water Siu, shortly after a boar interrupted his Sunday barbecue in the Aberdeen country park.
 
“In fact, we see them as our neighbors.”

City forges ahead with stable development
1st February 2019

 Shanghai remains confident it can achieve an annual GDP growth of between 6 and 6.5 percent but is prepared to tackle challenges ahead, the city’s Mayor Ying Yong told a press conference at the conclusion of the annual plenary session of the Shanghai People’s Congress.

 
“Shanghai’s economic basics remain positive,” Ying said. “We shall forge ahead with supply-side reform to ensure healthy and stable development.”
 
Shanghai will concentrate on the three major tasks designated by the central government: Seeing through the expansion of the local free trade zone, the launch of the technology innovation board, and the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region.
 
The National Development and Reform Commission is drawing up a policy plan for the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region, which also includes a pilot zone to demonstrate development synergies in the area.
 
“The pilot demonstration zone is expected to implement new reform measures as well as new development ideas,” he said. “It would also be a space to promote coordinated environmental protection efforts.”
 
Shanghai will continue to raise pensions, as well as the minimum wage and subsistence allowance to ensure all people share in the city’s growing prosperity. The government will focus on the key links in long-term care insurance, which covered more than 5.6 million senior citizens last year. These include beneficiary selection and the delivery of nursery care.
 
Shanghai will also host the second China International Import Expo, which is expected to occupy a larger exhibition space. Some 500 companies from more than 40 countries and regions have confirmed they will attend 2019 CIIE.
 
Shanghai will focus future cooperation with Hong Kong on finance, technology, culture and youth development and learn from Hong Kong’s experiences in developing financial services and human resources. Ying said Hong Kong Culture Week will be held in Shanghai in November, and HK Chief Executive Carrie Lam will be invited to visit.
 
Ying also said the government will devote more resources to the development of suburban districts and rural areas.
 
“There’s no modernization of the entire city without modernization of agriculture, no well-off society without well-off farmers and no eco-city without a good eco-environment of rural areas,” he said.
 
Building Shanghai’s business environment is also among the city’s priorities.
 
Plans are being drafted to resolve leftover issues, and learn from international best practices how to make business license registration more efficient.
 
Shanghai will also stick to the bottom line of ruling out financial risks and ensuring financial safety as the city strives to become an international financial center by 2020.
 
Based on the successes of the government’s “one-stop portal” for public services, the government will focus on the consolidation of public data for the purpose of better sharing. It will gradually move all government IT systems “onto the cloud.”
 
The government will formulate a regulation on the publication and management of public data, and reinvent the processes and procedures both within and across government departments. Some of those will be quite “revolutionary,” Ying said.
 
“We hope both the amount of time and material required for online administrative approval can be reduced by 50 percent,” he said.
 
“When companies and residents are dealing with the government, we hope it could be as pleasant and as easy as online shopping.”
 
Regarding the domestic garbage management regulations that were adopted by the city’s legislators, Ying said it gave a great boost to waste sorting and management.
 
“We will accelerate our efforts to further combine waste recycling with the collection and transportation of waste, increase the effort to separate rain water and sewage pipelines in residential complexes and build more end-of-pipe facilities to handle waste,” he added.

Fresh round of China-US trade talks start in Washington
31st January 2019

 

 
China and the United States kicked off here on Wednesday morning a new round of high-level talks to address their differences on outstanding economic and trade issues.
 
The talks, scheduled for two days, mark a significant step in the implementation of the important consensus reached by Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump during a working dinner in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 1.
 
The two heads of state agreed back then that the two sides should try to reach a mutually beneficial and win-win agreement within 90 days to bring an early end to their months-long trade friction featuring massive tariffs on imports from each other.
 
The latest talks began shortly after 9am local time at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, part of the White House complex, following a brief session open to the media.
 
All the discussions and negotiations, which are expected to last until Thursday afternoon, will be held behind closed doors.
 
The Chinese delegation, headed by Vice Premier Liu He, includes senior officials from major economic sectors of the Chinese government, while the US team is led by Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and includes Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, among others.
 
The White House has said that the US side welcomes the Chinese delegation, which arrived in Washington on Monday, and that Trump is scheduled to meet with Liu on Thursday.
 
The world is watching these talks closely, with many hoping for some substantial, positive progress to be made.
 
Analysts have warned that the lasting trade tension between the world's two largest economies would not only impact their own businesses, workers and consumers, but also stoke global market fears of uncertainty and disruption, and erode confidence in the long-term global economic growth.
 
While acknowledging that the talks will not be easy given the complexity and difficulty of certain issues in dispute, China maintains that there will be no insoluble problems between the two countries as long as they both keep the great benefits of cooperation in mind and show sincerity and mutual respect at the negotiating table.
