New #tariffs on Chinese goods will hurt foreign companies’ investment confidence in #China and also force China-based manufacturers to relocate their factories to #Vietnam, #Thailand and #Malaysia, reports Jeff Pao.…
The latest decision by United States President Donald Trump to add new tariffs on Chinese goods from next month will further weaken capital investments in China, some economists say.
On Thursday, US Trade representatives returned from Shanghai after talks with Chinese officials. On the same day in US time, Trump announced on Twitter that the US would add an additional tariff of 10% on the remaining US$300 billion of Chinese goods and products.

#Philippine government is not impressed with #Malaysia, #Vietnam fierce stance vs #China over the maritime dispute in the South China Sea, saying that their actions put the lives & safety of their people in danger. Right, lets surrender like Duterte does…
A standoff between Vietnamese & Chinese forces has been going on for weeks near an oil-rich area within Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone. The same activity was seen in May 2019, when a Chinese vessel patrolled waters near Luconia Shoals off the coast of Malaysia’s Sarawak State.
Asked if Vietnam’s move should serve as a model for the Philippines to address the West Philippine Sea dispute, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said: “It means also that Vietnam is risking an armed hostility between the two countries and risking the lives of their people.”

#Malaysia, #Vietnam show PH can stand up to #China - 'When claimants stand up for themselves and refuse to be intimidated, Beijing most often backs down rather than uses force,' says Gregory Poling of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative 👍 Good one…
Malaysia & Vietnam's continued oil and gas operations in the South China Sea despite tense encounters with Chinese Coast Guard vessels in their waters showed there's a way Philippines can stand up to Chinese aggression should it pursue oil explorations in the West Philippine Sea.
In an interview with Rappler, Gregory Poling, one of the world's leading experts on the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), said standoffs between China and Malaysia and Vietnam occurred near oil rigs located in the two Southeast Asian countries' exclusive economic zones.

Riza Asia, who is a Hollywood producer and stepson of Najib Razak (the former #Malaysia PM accused in the #1MDB scandal) was arrested today for money laundering.

His film company, Red Granite Pictures, produced “The Wolf of Wall Street.”

Malaysian officials wouldn’t comment on if his arrest was related to 1MDB, but I think we all know it is.
Ugh WTF?!? Autocorrect kept changing his last name, so I made to spell it correctly and triple checked it before tweeting, yet it’s misspelled anyway.

Despite all the tough rhetoric, #Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, tells top political & military officials in a religious-type meeting an hour ago in #Tehran that #Iran does not want a war with #America.

Nothing surprising here. The ayatollahs long abandoned the slogan Great Satan for the #US and actively sought strong ties with #Washington under #Obama WH. In #Afghanistan & #Iraq, the #IRGC & Gen. Soleimani quietly cooperated with US military & intelligence, until recently.
In return, again under #Obama WH, the #US turned a blind eye as #Iran/#IRGC/#Hezbollah expanded influence from #Nigeria to #Malaysia, thru #Yemen/#Gulf, and hosted elements of #Taliban+#AlQaeda as guests inside Iran, but without allowing them to be operational.

I was so fixated on sharing @NewNaratif's research article on the 50th anniversary of May 13 in #Malaysia yesterday that I forgot to tweet about another May 13 anniversary: the 65th anniversary of the anticolonial students' movement in #Singapore.
On 13 May 1954, a group of students in #Singapore delivered a petition to the colonial authorities opposing military conscription. Hundreds of their peers assembled at the foot of Fort Canning Hill in solidarity. They were met with brutal repression by riot police.
This was a significant moment for the anticolonial movement in #Singapore. It galvanised the students. They linked up with other anticolonial activists, such as union workers. The movement grew.

If the actual perps of #MH17 were to try to blame the #Russians, would @GovernmentRF be interested in expert testimony of pilot #whistleblower #FieldMcConnell @fieldmcc ?…

Barbara, Dan and Russian Federation,

In the case of the two recent B #737Max events @Boeing has been quoted as saying they would remove the #BUAP or #BHUAP..... same device as BUAP but #Honeywell was involved in the creation/installation.
I have patent history going back from 1953 to 2013.

When #MH370 occurred representatives of the Malay government contacted me and asked me how I could create the YouTube the same day the aircraft appeared to be lost.

I told them truthfully that Boeing had been installing...

“When China was poor, we were frightened of China. When China is rich, we are also frightened of China,” Mahathir said.

“I think we have to find some way to deal with China.”

In case you ever wondered where #palmoil comes from. Have a look at the #palm oil fruit here. From my visit to Surat Thani, Thailand to learn more about #sustainability in this industry. Read more here via @hillaryrosner
DYK: The oil palm tree—Elaeis guineensis—is not native to Asia but comes from West & central Africa. At the heart of the “sustainable #palmoil” debate though are #Indonesia & #Malaysia, which account for 85% of all production. 📷: young #palm in Thailand

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."…
"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."…
