My next couple of tweets are about the horrible ordeal that I went through @bangkok_airways in Thailand at the Bangkok airport and @TurkishAirlines the international flight I booked with from Nairobi to Cambodia!
Kindly bare with me! It’s a long Read! I’m infuriated!
I will describe this whole ordeal as black profiling in flights and airports, something that governments need to put a stop to, to protect the black travel community!
As a frequent traveler, all my bookings are always last minute! A night before departure!
Hence, this time round it was no different! Booked @TurkishAirlines flight late Monday night, for Tue, 8th of October, 4:30 flight from Nairobi to Cambodia via Turkey and BKK

Thread: #Vietnam shuns #Huawei as it seeks to build Southeast Asia’s first 5G network - It is an outlier in Southeast Asia, where the #Philippines, #Thailand and #Malaysia are open to deploying Huawei technology - An example to others @Aryanwarlord scmp.com/news/asia/sout…
Vietnam is quietly siding with the Trump administration, which has barred Huawei from buying US technology over national security concerns. Vietnam is intent on being the first Asean nation to provide a 5G network – without China’s tech powerhouse Huawei.
Viettel Group, Vietnam’s largest mobile carrier owned by the defence ministry, will deploy Ericsson AB’s equipment in Hanoi and Nokia Oyj’s technology in Ho Chi Minh City, said Viettel chief executive officer Le Dang Dung.

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. asiatimes.com/2019/08/articl…
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.

China has signed a secret agreement allowing its armed forces to use a Cambodian navy base near here, as Beijing works to boost its ability to project military power around the globe, according to U.S. and allied officials familiar with the matter.
The pact—signed this spring but not disclosed by either side—gives China exclusive rights to part of a Cambodian naval installation on the Gulf of Thailand, not far from a large airport now being constructed by a Chinese company.

OPINION BY SIMON KOLAWOLE: Mr President, may we discuss your cabinet? | TheCable bit.ly/2YOC2KO Cc @NGRPresident @MBuhari @AsoRock @FemAdesina @toluogunlesi @BashirAhmaad @DigiCommsNG
.@simonkolawole: Now, Mr President, let me say here that I will pre-judge your second term by the ministerial appointments you make after your inauguration. First, I have asked my fasting Muslim friends to help pray that we would not wait for another six months for a cabinet.
.@simonkolawole: They have assured me that they would spare no “rakat” in doing that. You are aware your delay in naming a cabinet in 2015 did no favours to the economy. I would even say we are yet to recover from the damage this inflicted on the system. #PMBNewCabinet

There are guards outside Rahaf’s hotel room. It’s 6.20am in Thailand. She’s been threatened to be put on the 11.15 am @KuwaitAirways flight. She’s been denied access to a lawyer. She wants to speak to @UNHCRThailand and claim asylum #SaveRahaf
Official from @KuwaitAirways is at Rahaf’s door but she’s refusing to leave #SaveRahaf
So the 11.15am @KuwaitAirways flight has left - Rahaf is safe and still at BKK. But the Thai government is reportedly blocking @UNHCRThailand from coming to speak with her? Why? #SaveRahaf

What will happen to #RahafAlQanun if Thailand forces her to return to #Saudi? For one, she says her family has threatened her with violence. Read more here. hrw.org/news/2019/01/0…
Even women who flee to domestic violence shelters are not safe in Saudi. Shelters for survivors of domestic violence often send women back to home if their abusers sign a pledge not to harm them, and women cannot leave such shelters without a male relative to receive them.
#RahafAlQanun also faces criminal charges in Saudi for “parental disobedience,” which can result in punishments ranging from being returned to a guardian’s home to imprisonment, and for “harming the reputation of the kingdom” for her public appeals for help.

Translation of tweets from the #Saudi woman trying to flee into asylum who said she is being held at #Bangkok airport: “I am the girl who escaped #Kuwait to #Thailand. My life is in real danger if I am forced to return to #Saudi Arabia.”
“My name is Rahaf Mohamed. I will publish my full name publicly if my family and the #Saudi embassy and the #Kuwaiti embassy man don’t stop chasing me”
“I am 20 years old and I should be able to live alone, freely, independent of anyone who does not respect my dignity and who doesn’t respect me as a woman.”

Impact of trade war on emerging Asia: No short-term winner but #Vietnam , #India and #Thailand to gain in the medium-term.

•Today, 1 out of 5 manufactured goods in the world come from China – a great leap from 3% in 1996

•1 out of 2 labor-intensive manu exports are from China
1) The US is a massive consumer of Chinese manufactured goods. Look at the chart of exports to the US & China's exports to the rest of the world.

If the US doesn't buy it, then it will go to the rest of the world, which doesn't absorb it since US demand is key, then PRICE falls
2) China has MASSIVE global market share in manufactured goods, & more for specific categories such as machinery, so:

a) HARD to substitute Chinese goods in the short-term;
b) If the US doesn't buy, China will drop prices to unload inventories;
c) No short-term gain for EM Asia

In a week where the North East got yet another military commander, we got a better look at overburdened infrastructure.

Elsewhere, as MTN gears up to enter the banks’ turf, concern over Nigeria's food import practices conjures a picture of a recently painted but creaking house.
The @MTNGroup's announcement is a positive for #Nigeria's economy as it substantiates previous comments by MTN that it has no plans to exit Nigeria despite its spat with @cenbank over alleged illegal fund repatriation.
The announcement ties into @MTNGroup’s strategy to become the biggest provider of mobile financial services in #Africa.

The telecoms-led drive to provide mobile money services will introduce a new interesting chapter in #Nigeria’s financial services sector.

[THREAD] 6 OCT 1976 marked as the one of darkest days of Thai modern history. This day known as "the 6 October event" or "Thammasat University massacre". That day Thai state forces and far-right groups were raiding the university in name of anti-communist. #Thailand #6oct #6ตุลา
After the uprising in 14 OCT 1973, Thailand became the liberal democratic country after the junta PM Thanom Kittikachorn resign and leaving Thailand and the constitution of 1974 was drafted and used.
However, due the fear of communism and military influences from the past juntas they created many of the far-right groups such as; Village Scouts (Luksuea Chaoban), Nawaphon movement, and Red Gaurs (Krathing Daeng). All of them urge to protect nation, religion and monrachy.
