News from China
186 dead as rivers hit danger levels
4th July 2016

 FLOODS spawned by torrential rain in China’s southern and eastern regions have left at least 186 people dead and another 45 missing, the nation’s flood headquarters said yesterday.

The extreme weather has also displaced 1.48 million people and caused 50.6 billion yuan (US$7.6 billion) in direct economic losses in 26 provincial areas, it said.

Storms have been hitting most of southern China since Thursday, pushing water levels in rivers to dangerous levels and swelling many reservoirs.

The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters said the situation remained grave, with two more rounds of rainstorms forecast to hit southern regions over the next 10 days. Nepartak, the first typhoon of the year, is expected to bring gales and downpours to eastern coastal areas this week.

The country’s weather authority suggested people in southern areas reduce outdoor activities on rainy days and take precautions against possible floods and landslides.

Some 9,000 houses collapsed and 710,000 hectares of crops have been damaged in seven southern provinces. Combined losses have been estimated at around 9.1 billion yuan.

China’s meteorological authority yesterday renewed its orange alert, the second most serious, for heavy rain across much of the south today.

Thunderstorms will continue to affect the provinces of Hubei, Anhui, Jiangsu, Hunan, Jiangxi, Guizhou and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region this morning, with precipitation reaching up to 220 millimeters in some areas, the National Meteorological Center said on its website.

Meanwhile, the death toll from Friday’s landslide in southwest China’s Guizhou Province was put at 23 yesterday, with seven others injured, after everyone had been accounted for.

Intense rain triggered the landslide around 5:30am in Dafang County’s Pianpo Village, according to the local rescue headquarters.

Thirty people had been buried in the debris and more than 800 soldiers and rescuers had worked with excavators to search for the missing villagers.

The heaviest rain this year battered Hubei Province on Saturday, leaving at least 22 people missing or dead. Water levels of the Jushui River, a major Yangtze tributary, had risen by more than eight meters in a day, inundating at least 23 villages. Thousands of soldiers, firefighters and relief workers are working around the clock to repair the breaches.

On the same day, soldiers in Hubei’s Macheng City used a ton of explosives to open a sluice channel for the Xianggudun reservoir. It is near several key railway and highway lines and a dam breach could have put the lives of around 70,000 people in danger.

The Yangtze has seen 16 rounds of heavy rainfall since the middle of March and levels of 43 rivers along its course have surpassed the safe limit.

The water level on the Dongting Lake is about a meter higher than in previous years, while the level of Poyang Lake, China’s largest freshwater body, is 2 meters higher than the level in previous years.

Lou warns China not meeting fiscal goals
1st July 2016

 THE Chinese government is struggling to meet its annual fiscal targets, Minister of Finance Lou Jiwei warned yesterday.

The central treasury received 2.968 trillion yuan (US$447 billion) from January to May, a year-on-year rise of 0.6 percent, Lou said when delivering a State Council report on the final accounts for 2015 to the National People’s Congress Standing Committee.

The increase is below the previously budgeted growth rate of 2 percent.

Total national fiscal revenue reached 6.988 trillion yuan in the same period, up 8.3 percent year on year.

Lou said the Chinese economy is generally steady this year, and a series of policies have led to more positive economic factors. However, the economy is still facing great downward pressure.

Under the current situation, the outlook for achieving the annual national fiscal revenue target is not optimistic, and greater efforts must be made, said Lou.

Lou said the finance ministry will stabilize and improve financial macro-economic policies, focusing on supply-side structural reform and moderately expanding demand to promote the steady and healthy development of the economy.

In the meantime, the ministry will accelerate reform of the tax system and fully implement the law on the budget, as well as strengthen budget management to prevent risks, Lou said.

Lou also vowed to strengthen management of local government debt by setting limits to control the scale of the debt.

Toyota recalls 1.43 million vehicles for defective air bags
29th June 2016

 Toyota is recalling 1.43 million vehicles globally for defective air bags, although it is not part of the massive recalls of Takata air bags, the Japanese automaker said Wednesday.

Toyota Motor Corp. said it does not know of any fatalities or injuries related to the latest recalls.

Being recalled are the Prius hybrid, Prius plug-in and the Lexus CT200h produced between October 2008 and April 2012 — 743,000 vehicles in Japan, 495,000 in North America and 141,000 vehicles in Europe, as well as 9,000 vehicles in China and 46,000 vehicles in other regions.

A small crack in some inflators in the air bags in the driver and passenger sides may expand, causing the air bags to partially inflate.

The air bags were not made by Takata, according to Toyota.

The announcement by Toyota means that overall the total numbers of recalls because of air bag worries likely now tally more than 100 million globally. Faulty air bags are responsible for 11 deaths and more than 100 injuries worldwide. Three more deaths are under investigation in Malaysia.
