A vast fishing armada of Chinese vessels just off the Galápagos Islands logged an astounding 73,000 hours of fishing during just one month... that's about 2,500 hours a day.... https://t.co/gH5IMP7WZE
This is a tragedy in the making. I learned to dive in the Galapagos in 1998. Absolutely stunning fecundity of underwater life. Ecuador has done well enough renegotiating its debts to China so far but it has little heft (only 2 frigates!) to push back so far from its shores. https://t.co/ygNfp8LKL9
Can anyone in Hong Kong open https://t.co/xIikwGO7fC? Appears to be blocked, can't tell from which side.
Very different tone from a letter that went out earlier today. https://t.co/Har2gokwmo
May I present to you the Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services? https://t.co/JRyz83Ebiq
Unwritten credit rules circulated by Beijing have prompted China Evergrande to offer discounts of 30% or more. That will eat further into profit and make it harder to cut debt. The aggressive gambit may, however, cripple the competition, says @ywchen1: https://t.co/n5Gi7r27Aj. https://t.co/wWYqzwYAuH
The WTO just ruled against Trump’s China tariffs. The case ended up hinging on a question that seems pretty unrelated to trade: Does the totality of a country’s legal system say anything about its moral values? Thread https://t.co/YXIUWtUO8H
Beijing is letting lenders go belly-up as it attacks systemic risk. That’s all fine for Benjamin Fanger, founder of ShoreVest, a manager $1.8 bln of soured loans. He talks with @petesweeneypro about China's bad debt opportunity, listen to the podcast here: https://t.co/H5Kw9zZuSg https://t.co/ohSLloI03P
A fun conversation with Ben, one of the pioneers in Chinese NPL recovery. He sure does file a lot of lawsuits, but that's the business for you. He makes a solid case that buying distressed assets in China is a good business, and getting better. https://t.co/Qgu9E9yrIw
@SiobhanFenton It doesn't sound like you've read the GFA. I suggest you do so. The UK internal market will not be divided to suit your brand of terrorism.
Men on the internet telling me, author of the book ‘The Good Friday Agreement’ which is (unsurprisingly) about the Good Friday Agreement, to read the Good Friday Agreement is my favourite genre of reply guy https://t.co/S8DAhEpiCf
Key to Ant’s success is its cut from lining up credit, insurance and wealth customers. A Breakingviews calculator suggests a reasonable starting point would be about $275 bln, says @mak_robyn: https://t.co/UvhfRCjBe8. Run the numbers here: https://t.co/2pvcfhPROb. https://t.co/Qas7Pj2yF3
Fun interactive calculator. At the high end of the assumptions, Ant is worth $564.7 billion. A bargain at any price, I'm sure. https://t.co/UANZpm0PmT
It's nice to be home but deeply disappointing to leave China under such abrupt circumstances. It's been a big part of my life & the past week was surreal. A very big thank you to the ABC, friends, colleagues & those involved at DFAT. Plus @MikeSmithAFR for sharing the ride out. https://t.co/zkJEV4Oa27
To make Mulan, Disney worked with four propaganda departments in the Chinese region of Xinjiang, the site of a genocide against Muslims, and the Xinjiang public security bureau. This is a horrific. Here's my article on the subject, and a thread on why. https://t.co/jlbv7QusCb
