1/14. A thread on India/China. A rumored but likely authentic notice of #Walmart moving it's "Supplier Enablement Team" from #China to #India has been circulating on Chinese social media. Is this the beginning of business decoupling? A few pointers.
2. First, my understanding is Supplier Enablement team is to help suppliers getting their business efficiently so Walmart has efficiency in its own part of business. It is likely tied to Walmart commitment to source $10 Billion of India-Made Goods Each Year by 2027.
3. But is this a leading event in a significant shift of international businesses moving from China to India? It remains to be seen & an active area of attention. Southeast Asia are the common denominator in many of these supply decisions on the ground.

3. Merkel learned to make Kung Pao Chicken, a traditional Chinese dish, in Sichuan, Southwest China, in 2014.
4. She took a night tour to the Pearl River in Guangzhou, Southern #China.

#CCP party secretary Wang Yongzhen at #Fudan University in #Shanghai was killed today(June 7) by 39 y/o Jiang, who is also a teacher at Fudan University. Jiang calmly told the police he did so because he had been "framed and treated badly" by Wang in all these years. He felt... strongly about the "bad treatment" that he couldn't speak for a few seconds. He said he bought his knife on Internet and came directly from his home to kill Wang. He cut open Wang's throat...
Some Chinese netizens applauded him for "sorting it out with the right person."
The police only gave out his surname Jiang. I don't know his full name. Wang Yongzhen was 49 years old, according to the police. Image

2) Tesla Suppressed After Huawei’s IPO

Last month, China’s state media claimed that Huawei is the only Chinese company that is capable of competing with Tesla. Huawei’s first smart luxury all-electric car was launched in Shanghai on April 17.
3) The CCP atracts foreign firms using deception. When it grows stronger, it gets rid of them.

Taiwanese & Japanese firms have known this for a long time.

Now the CCP has thrusted the knife into Tesla, because it already learned to make electric cars & no longer needs Tesla.

#China #Shanghai #Coronavirus #VACCINE

A Chinese vaccine expert is referring to the vaunted Sinopharm vaccine as the "most unsafe vaccine in the world," after it was found to produce 73 side effects. On December 30 of last year BBIBP-CorV (Sinopharm)
was officially approved by China's National Medical Products Administration for general use in the communist country. This was the first Wuhan coronavirus vaccine approved by the Chinese government wit a claimed efficacy rate of 79.34. Shanghai-based vaccine expert,
Tao Lina (陶黎納), recently uploaded a digital version of the vaccine's instruction manual onto his Weibo page. His Weibo account was quickly deleted by authorities. His page now states "this content cannot be viewed due to violation of regulations."

Only a few days after the rebellion against Wirston in India, thousands of workers protests against Pegatron, the closest Taiwanese Apple supplier, have broken out in Shanghai, China. ImageImage
The reason for this was disagreement over a wage dispute. There were numerous arbitrary arrests when a large number of police came to guard the entrance to the factory.
The protest were ignited after Pegatron tried to transfer thousands of workers from its factory in Shanghai to another facility in Kunshan, eastern Jiangsu Province. Those who refused to transfer had been sacked, Image

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

Thread...People are critical of #China enforcing its citizens to speak #Mandarin, however locals can still speak dialects in #Xinjiang #InnerMongolia and #Tibet but if you can’t speak the national language of the country you live in, what future job prospects do you have?
When I lived in #Shanghai for 7 years, all locals speak Shanghainese, they love their local dialect, but TV, radio, schools are #Mandarin only, this is important as it’s the language that unites this diverse country of #China
#Mandarin is the most popular language around the world. Western families send their kids to Mandarin kindergartens, politicians like #DonaldTrump grandkids speak fluent Mandarin, but when #Chinese government enforces Mandarin in #China its consider a crime 🤔 #doublestandard

🚨Worried about the world's biggest dam #ThreeGorgesDam failing?

Take a look upstream at China's 2nd largest dam #XiluoduDam 😲#三峡大坝

This is a 2020 image and it looks like work has taken place in an attempt to buttress it.

#ThreeGorgesDamRisks… Image
This thing is HUGE! At around 940 ft high and 700m wide, it holds back 12,670,000,000 cubic metres of water in a 200 km long reservoir.

(Note: This image looks like CGI, but gives a good sense of scale) #Chinaflooding

China has a long history of corruption leading to poor construction standards and failure of capital projects.

The consistency and accurate pouring of concrete should be tightly controlled in such projects. This site looks to be shoddy, dirty and unkempt #XiluoduDam Image
