#China's exports and imports contracted in November as the #COVID19 outbreak disrupted production and weakened demand at home. The value of exports fell to a low of $296 billion, the lowest since April when the lockdown of Shanghai closed factories. 🧵
The decline in imports also widened to 10.6%, leaving a narrower trade surplus of $69.8 billion last month.
China's government is now looking to relax the #COVIDZero policy to reduce its impact on the economy and add more stimulus.

USA doesn’t care about Africa but now is holding a summit of African leaders in Washington DC. Why?

CHINA!

But this kind of reactive policy will be ineffective.

China-Africa bilateral trade is whopping $250 billion. That’s 5x the US-Africa trade.
Every one of the 54 African countries has signed up for the Belt and Road Initiative (#BRI).

China builds highways, railways, seaports, airports, schools, hospitals, telecom networks, hydropower dams etc. in Africa.

America builds… MILITARY bases.

Most countries have adapted Rama Story acc. to their own culture with a local setting; the Indian names are used for important towns, sites, mountains, rivers, and lakes.
The adoption of Valmiki Story in Asian countries was selective and influenced by local values

Cookies, crime & lasting legacies: This inconspicuous biscuit box holds a story of Shanghai’s largest finance scandal but also enduring memories of one of its oldest consumer brands. The category-defining success story of a Western businessman in China you've never heard of: 🧵⬇
The crumb trail of Bakerite leads us back to the American J.D. Sullivan, who after serving in the Spanish War, came to China at the turn of the century & established the Denniston & Sullivan photo supplies store on Broadway (Daming Rd.) in the Shanghai International Settlement.
In June 1906 Sullivan sold the business to former employees Messrs. L.L. Hopkins and J.J. Gilmore who continued to operate it but moved the location to Nanking Rd. (todays Nanjing East Rd.). James Sullivan left China to get married in the USA in December 1906. After his return...

We're seeing easing of #ZeroCovid measures in different forms right across #China. This is only the beginning but it looks like the government has now given up on the idea of reducing each outbreak to zero cases. Take #Beijing: cases have not come down but restrictions easing.
This doesn't mean there will suddenly be no restrictions, there could even still be lockdowns if #Covid_19 deaths spread too quickly, but the long term trajectory now looks set. In the wake of the protests in cities across #China, #ZeroCovid has to go.
The can be a gradual easing though, with the government monitoring the strain on hospitals here. It can try to allow #Covid_19 to spread at a slower rate. The messaging from the government has already changed. People are now being told that the newest strains are not as serious.

BREAKING: #BNNChina Reports.

A US cybersecurity firm has accused the Chinese government of flooding social media with spam to drown voices of widespread anti #Covid19 lockdown protests. #China #health
The Recorded Future found that the government executed a volley of spam by networks of coordinated bots to target non-Chinese social media platforms to push down posts of demonstrations. It also allegedly hijacked hashtags of names of Chinese cities.
“These spambot networks are resilient, well-resourced and agile. The rate at which they are posting content and spinning up new accounts tells us that they have automation tools to flood the information space," Charity Wright, a senior analyst at Recorded Future, said.

@ulrikeguerot hat von Osteuropa keine Ahnung, also hat sie sich für ihr Buch Hauke Ritz als Co-Autoren engagiert: einen Philosophen, der in #Moskau sein drittes Rom gefunden hat und #Russland|s #Patriotismus lobt. Passt das zu Guérot, die doch die Nationen überwinden möchte?
