Belugas freed from 上海会所品茶微信whale sanctuary

Two beluga whal上海会所品茶微信es have landed safely in Iceland, where they will live out their days in a whale sanctuary.

The pair, Little Grey and Little White, who had spent years in captivity as performers at the Changfeng Ocean World in Shangh

ai, were flown to the other side of the world in specially made slings and containers that were designed to their exact physical requirements.

The two 12-year-old female whales journeyed 9,223 kilometers,

including the flight from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to Iceland’s Keflavik

International Airport and trips by truck and ferry, to end up at their new home in a natural bay on Heimaey, one of the

Westman Islands, located off the southern coast of Iceland. They arrived on Wednesday.

Andy Bool, head of Sea Life Trust, said: “We’re absolutely delighted Littl

e Grey and Little White have safely touched down in Iceland. This is a complex but insp

iring project and we’ve been working with the whales for months, helping to prepare them for traveling to their new home.”

“But the adoption of (overly aggressive) macro-polices should be avoided” and there is no need to r

Finance ministers and central bank governors from the G20 group gathered in Fukuoka, Japan, over the weekend and discuss

ed possible impacts of escalated China-US trade tensions on economic growth. The International Monetary F

Finance Minister Liu Kun warned at the G20 meeting that protectionism co

ly protect the rule-based multilateral mechanism. Trade disputes should be resolved on a basis of fairness and ra

tionality,” said Liu, according to a statement on the ministry’s website on Sunday.

A hearing on the proposed tariffs on Chinese imports will

 take place on June 17, according to the Office of the US Trade Representative.

Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for Internation

al Economics in Washington, said the FDRA letter will add to the pressure on Trump to reach a deal with China.

“It will not be totally ignored,” Hufbauer said.

Over the past few weeks, business groups have voiced their concern that the escalating tariffs on Chinese imports risked knocking consumers off their feet.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association, for example, said in a st

atement: “The administration’s decision to announce a tax on every product coming from China pu

ts America’s entire economy at risk. Americans’ entire shopping cart will get more expensive,” it said.

In addition to real-time monitoring, the China Meteorological Administration set up the Emergency Suppor

t Mechanism for international users of Fengyun satellites last April, which covers disaster prevention and mitigation.

So far, 15 countries including Iran and Mongolia have registered as users of the mechanism.

According to the administration, the mechanism can switch the on-duty satel

lite to a quick-scan mode focusing on areas required by users when they are hit by disasters.

“During disasters, Fengyun satellites can scan as often as every five or six minutes. The China

Meteorological Administration could send users cloud images and products via satellites and public clouds,” Wei said.

Many people have the impression that Chinese goods are dominant in US markets. That is true only in a few highly com

US market in such items as umbrellas, toys, prepared feathers, footwear, straw products, and bedding.

Chinese exporters have from 20 to 50 percent of the US market in ot

Roughly 20 years ago, when China’s admission to the

World Trade Organization was being negotiated, China’s economy was ti

ny as a portion of world GDP. It was clearly a poor, less-developed country that, except in a f

ew areas, was not able to compete with Western companies in high-value-added products.

As Alexander Hamilton, the first US Treasury secretary, argued, a developing country may need to p

rotect its “infant industries” from already established foreign competitors. This was the policy foll

owed by the US in the 19th century and by Western Europe, Japan, and South Korea in the years after World War II.

China is no longer a poor country. It can no longer compete by using low-wa

ge labor. Fortunately, it has now developed world-class companies that are incre

asingly developing new products and services that can compete successfully in many foreign markets.
