Story in latest Time magazine. "The Grey Wave Set To Crash China."

"By 2029 China's population will go into "unstoppable decline. The country may face no greater threat.

Fewer people means less domestic consumption, and thus rapidly slowing economic growth."

How many years has the west been predicting the China bubble was about to burst at any second? 20 years?

pt and his mates are flogging a dead horse.

Will China let Belt and Road die quietly?

Xi's global investment program faces domestic criticism amid economic and fiscal worries

Minxin Pei

The news for China's ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been unrelentingly bad.

Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia has canceled two mega BRI projects, including a $20 billion railway, citing high costs. Pakistan's new government has called for a review of the crown jewel of BRI -- China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), to which China has committed more than $60 billion in funding. Myanmar's government has just told Beijing that construction of a suspended China-funded hydropower dam would not be allowed to resume. The Maldives, the tiny island nation in the Indian Ocean, is trying to renegotiate down the $3 billion debt -- equal to two thirds of its gross domestic product -- it has borrowed from China to fund BRI projects.

But, inside China, it is hard to detect overt signs of any wavering in support for BRI the pronouncements from top Chinese leaders, especially President Xi Jinping. For Xi, BRI's architect, this vast project spanning half the globe with infrastructure links connected to Beijing represents his vision to project Chinese power and influence.

The world's most innovative company is a Chinese super app


Beijing: It's not the news Donald Trump's China-hawks would want to hear in the final stretch of a bruising trade negotiation where Washington's biggest ambit claim has been the accusation that China's tech industry is built on theft, not innovation.

How timely pt, you smug bugger...

Australian surfers win David v Goliath battle against Chinese company in Fiji

After a legal struggle described as a David versus Goliath battle, two Australian surfers have helped halt a Chinese development accused of causing extensive environmental damage to a tropical island.

In 2015, Navrin Fox and Woody Jack bought a 99-year lease on an acre of land on Fiji’s Malolo Island with plans to turn the site into a small eco-friendly resort or Airbnb."We just had a crazy dream when we saw the land and thought that looks awesome," Mr Fox said.

However, in late 2017 a Chinese developer leased the neighbouring piece of land and proceeded to trespass on their property, to cut down a third of the property’s trees and to dump construction equipment onto the property"We had a natural rainforest until they came along and cut half our trees down without us knowing," Mr Fox said. "I just felt disbelief. It was a horrible feeling inside."

Worse was to come when the company, Freesoul Real Estate, which intended to build a large resort on the site, brought in excavators to rip up the reef off the shoreline from Mr Fox's beach."They had no permits to do what they have done to the reef, and no permits to dump the reef onto our beach," he said.

Mr Fox said he was then assaulted by a Chinese Freesoul employee as he tried to access his own land.

The surfer only suffered cuts and bruises but was worried the fight could have escalated.

"I was concerned when he picked up an iron bar and decided to walk over," he said.Despite the Australians taking legal action and numerous court injunctions, the developer did not stop work, Kenneth Chambers, lawyer for the pair, said.

"They [Mr Fox and Mr Jack] have put their life's savings into this and ended up next to a monster," Dr Chambers said.

The country's environmental laws are adequate, the lawyer said, but enforcement is an issue.

"There have not been many prosecutions in the 14 years since new legislation has been enacted even though it is a very good law," he said.

The lawyer labelled the case a "David and Goliath battle", saying there was enough evidence to link Freesoul to China’s One Belt and Road initiative.

Freesoul's Chinese-language website says it signed an agreement with the state-run Shanghai Media Group in 2017 to explore the "highly promising" Fiji tourism market as part of the Belt and Road policy, New Zealand investigative journalism website Newsroom has reported.

However, China’s ambassador to Fiji, Qian Bo, has distanced the country from the company, saying it was not a Chinese entity.

"Strictly speaking, this has nothing to do with the Chinese embassy or China," Mai TV quoted him as saying.

Last week, after international media attention and the detention of three Newsroom journalistswho tried to interview Freesoul representatives, the High Court in Suva issued a stopwork injunction and ordered the company to clean up the area.

The environment department also revoked the company’s environment permit.

"The conduct of Freesoul Real Estate Development has been deeply concerning to me personally for some time," Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama said.

"As both a Fijian who treasures our environment and a global advocate for sustainable development, I share in the public’s outrage."

Although the Australians are celebrating a win for the "little guy", Mr Jack said he was sceptical the company would comply with the court order.

"This legal challenge was never about us; you have to do the right thing in regards to the environment no matter where you are," Mr Jack said.

The Sydney Morning Herald has contacted representatives of Freesoul for comment.

Hey Isaac, I know you haven't taken Easter off from your shadowing of Whale all over the site, so why didn't you report this yesterday? Chinese ocean floor mapping around Manus Island.

Chinese surveillance near PNG expanding as Australia and US begin Manus Island naval upgrades

Exclusive by defence correspondent Andrew Greene

Updated yesterday at 11:48am

High-tech Chinese ships are mapping waters close to Papua New Guinea just as the United States and Australia begin upgrading a naval base on Manus Island.

Key points:

  • Chinese ships deployed to waters near Manus Island as Australia and US announce naval base upgrades
  • The vessels are among a fleet increasing its surveys around the Philippines, Palau, Guam and Japan
  • Experts believe the information could be crucial in any future maritime conflict

The deep-water Chinese scientific surveys are part of Beijing's unprecedented oceanographic research of the Western Pacific, in an area experts believe could be crucial in any future maritime conflict with the US.

Military analysis of GPS satellite data reveals two Chinese research vessels entered PNG's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) north of Manus Island, just weeks after US Vice President Mike Pence announced a joint redevelopment of the ageing Lombrum naval base.

The ships involved, the Ke Xue a more...
