Wildlife along

Chinese investment in Europe and North America retreated in 2017 in tandem with China's posting its first fall in foreign direct investment globally since 2006 as stricter guidelines were imposed.


Chinese FDI into North America fell sharply by 35 percent to US$30 billion last year amid government policies restricting outbound investment Moins Cher Femme Nike Air Presto QS Lac Bleu Blanche , according to a report of global law firm Baker McKenzie's and consulting company Rhodium Group.


Although FDI into Europe soared 76 percent to US$81 billion, the growth was solely due to the delayed completion of ChemChina's record US$43 billion takeover of Swiss agribusiness company Syngenta. If this mega deal had not been completed in 2017, Chinese investment in Europe would have tumbled 22 percent to US$38 billion.


But the figures backed up official Chinese data showing that the country's global FDI flows had declined by over a third in 2017 — the first drop since 2006.


"The main reason for the fall was guidelines introduced by the Chinese government imposing additional restrictions on outbound investment to address balance of payment concerns and mitigate perceived risks for China's financial system arising from rapid overseas investment," Baker McKenzie said.


Additionally, Chinese FDI faced growing regulatory scrutiny in many host countries. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the US was especially strict in its monitoring that at least seven major deals were impacted greatly Rabais Homme Nike Air Presto QS Bleu , according to the report.


Also Chinese capital controls introduced in late 2016 greatly slashed the average size of deals announced in 2017 across all industries and investor types. The deals fell from US$626 million in North America in 2016 to US$282 million last year, and in Europe they declined from US$346 million in 2016 to US$162 million.


"The momentum of deals involving Chinese investors dropped sharply from Q3 2016 to the first half of 2017," said Mike DeFranco, global head of M&A at Baker McKenzie.


"Now that it is clear how the rules have changed for Chinese investors at home and abroad, activity is picking up Homme Nike Air Presto QS Grise Pas Cher , and 2017 was still the second-best year on record in North America and technically the best in Europe, despite all the challenges for dealmakers," he said.


Chinese investors cancelled or withdrew 19 announced deals worth over US$12 billion in North America and Europe in 2017, compared with the 30 deals cancelled in 2016. Around US$5 billion of Chinese investments are being reviewed by regulators in the US and Europe.


Chinese investors favored investment in real estate and hospitality, transport Homme Nike Air Presto Noir Achetez , utilities and infrastructure as well as ICT in both North America and Europe.


BEIJING, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- China's top disciplinary watchdog on Wednesday named a number of grassroots officials implicated in abuse of poverty relief funds.


The eight cases involve bribe-taking, embezzlement of poverty relief funds and fraudulently obtaining subsistence allowance, the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a statement.


In one case, a township civil affairs official in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region embezzled about 1.73 million yuan (273 Homme Nike Air Presto Essential Noir Grise Pas Cher ,133 U.S. dollars) of subsistence allowance for the needy and lost 1.01 million yuan on gambling in 2016. The official was stripped of CPC membership and his public post, and the case has been transferred to judicial organs.


The fight against corruption and malpractice in poverty relief is a major task in the following three years, said the CCDI, ordering harsh punishments for officials implicated in misuse of poverty relief funds.


China has set 2020 as the target year to complete the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects, which requires the lifting of all people above the poverty line -- per capita annual income of 2 Nike Air Presto BR Noir Pas Cher ,300 yuan -- in rural areas.




WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- China has taken effective actions to protect wetlands and wildlife along the coastline of the country, Science magazine on Tuesday praised the determination of the Chinese central government.


China's State Oceanic Administration (SOA) announced in its statement on Jan. 17 that it will dramatically curb commercial development of coastal wetlands, as well as nationalize already reclaimed wetlands that have not yet been built on.


"This represents a true 'sea change' in the official attitudes to the very large, and internationally shared Homme NikeLab Acronym Presto Mid Utility Noir Blanche Rabais , biodiversity values of the shorelines of China," Theunis Piersma, an ecologist of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands told Science magazine.


Wildlife along the coastal areas also benefit from China's moves. Those wetlands particularly in the Yellow Sea are at the midpoint between East Asia and Australia, which are crucial for migratory birds between Siberia and Australia.


Ecologists also pointed that national wetlands protection laws are needed in China, and penalties for damaging these wetlands need to be strengthened.


It will be important to win over locals by demonstrating the benefits of tidal wetlands Nike Air Presto Homme Noir Rouge Pas Cher , including nature tourism and flood protection, said Nicola Crockford of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in Britain.


Early in 2015, China created a "red line" to protect 53 million hectares of wetlands, and in 2016, SOA created 16 marine parks Homme Nike Air Presto ISLAND Bleu Pas Cher , bringing the total area with various levels of protection to about 124,000 square kilometers, according to the administration.




LONDON, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- British businesses welcomed the success of Brexit talks between the government and the European Union (EU), but said the trade talks that this success heralds will be "crucial".
