Aid is piling up on Venezuela’s border. Here’s why it’s not

  On February 23, humanitarian aid will enter Venezuela one way or another,” the country’s self-declared president Juan Guaido d

eclared earlier this month. But not so fast — President Nicolas Maduro, who won reelection in a widely-criticized vote last year, has pr

omised to block the supplies, and organizations including the Red Cross and United Nations have refused to help.

  The slow advance of aid toward impoverished Venezuela has become a proxy measure of

the power struggle between its two rival presidents. At the same time, there is little doubt that the Ve

nezuelan people are in need of help. So why is it so hard to agree on aid?

  What is happening?

  Venezuela is dealing with the worst economic crisis in its history. One

in 10 Venezuelans are undernourished, and the economic crisis has triggered an exo

dus of at least three million people, according to the International Organization of Migration.

  Venezuela closes key maritime, air borders with neighbors amid growing aid crisis

  Guaido has thrown all his weight behind a “humanitarian channel” that would bring tons of mu

ch-needed aid from foreign countries into Venezuela. But the plan isn’t just benevolent — it’s als

o a direct jab at Maduro, who for years has denied that a humanitarian crisis was happening in Venezuela.

  ”The impact of the humanitarian aid is highly political,” admits Jua

n Miguel Matheus, an MP for the opposition. “Our first and primary goal is to provide relief for

the Venezuelan population, but after that, with this move we want to checkmate Maduro.

It is natural that Europeans consider more of their own

interests, but they should stick to justice in major affairs otherwise double standards will prevail.

Europe does not feel any threat from China’s missiles. In security, Europe is caught in the middle of Moscow and Washington.

Europe is not the source of China’s security pressure. But Germany has dragged China into its own security pli

ght, which not only damages China’s interests, but also leads Europeans in the wrong direction for their security concerns.

Globalization has remolded the existing power pattern and will also change the world’s political landscape. The era that Europe’s interest

s are tied with the Western camp is ending. America First will become the dominant principle in tr

ans-Atlantic ties. Europe is destined to fall behind the US and needs to recalculate its orientation.

As the world’s second largest economy, China needs defense capabilities which should be more powerful than it has now so as t

o build peace in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. A peaceful and stable Asia-Pacific region will benefit Europe.

The Asia-Pacific is far from reaching a balance of power. Germans are clear abo

ut the wide gap between the Chinese and US militaries. Merkel’s words are nothing but a bubble in thin air.

Let’s reap potential of China-Myanmar cooperation transitio

Since Myanmar embarked on its political transition, political elites in the country have championed that peace is the premise for econo

mic and social development. In the first two years of the government led by National League for Democracy (NLD), Nay Pyi Taw devoted a lot

of efforts to promoting national reconciliation with the hope of making a major breakthrough and consolidating public su

pport. Regrettably, results are not satisfactory. The NLD government is currently locked in a stalemate over national reconciliation.

It has also performed poorly in boosting the economy and improving people’s lives. Main economic in

dicators suggest that since the NLD government assumed power, Living standards haven’t su

bstantially improved, and more economic problems have surfaced to plague the country. One of the main rea

sons why the NLD lost seats in the 2018 elections is the government’s lackluster economic performance. If the ec

onomy doesn’t improve, it will inevitably affect the NLD’s potential for victory in the 2020 election.

Therefore, the NLD government is now attaching increasing importance to economic and livel

ihood issues. It has issued a string of policies to attract foreign investment. Take the new Mya

nmar Companies Act. Under the law, foreigners are permitted to take up to a 35 percent stake in local companies and bu

sinesses with foreign stakes of more than 35 percent will be classified as a foreign company, which facilitates co

operation between foreign investors and local businessmen and will help attract more foreign investment.

Film academy probes PhD actor accused of academic plag

The Beijing Film Academy is investigating actor Zhai Tianlin, who has been the target of plagiarism allegations, Beijing Youth Daily reported on Monday.

The academy organized an investigative team to look into Zhai’s case and has zero tolerance for academic misconduct, the newspaper said, citing the academy.

Zhai, 32, has a PhD from the academy and is a postdoctoral candidate at Peking University. He

found himself in hot water on social media recently after a Sina Weibo blogger accused him of plagiarism last week.

Zhai, who is said to have the highest academic qualificat

ions in China’s entertainment industry, has frequently flaunted his academic achievements in his

social media posts, which have detailed the difficulties he said he had while working on his papers.

He raised a flurry of chatter online in August when he said in a live video appearan

ce that he did not know what the China National Knowledge Infrastructure was. CNKI is the largest a

nd most widely used online academic library in China for university students writing theses and dissertations.

Tiantongyuan redevelopment set to improve livesy station

The region to the north of Beijing’s Fifth Ring Road is dominated by Tiantongy

uan, an enormous neighborhood reputed to be the largest residential area in Asia that houses approximately 700,000 people.

The area, which is home to more than 3 percent of the city’s population, mainly migrant work

ers, is nicknamed “Sleeper Town” because a lack of amenities and entertainment facilities mean most of the residents only go there to rest.

Located at the end of subway line 5, a major route connecting the downtown to the northern

suburbs, Tiantongyuan attracted its huge population as a result of its low property prices and relatively convenient location.

However, its dilapidated condition is a major headache for the city and the area faces a ho

st of problems, including a lack of infrastructure, both social and industrial, allied to heavy traffic congestion.

Priced at 2,650 yuan per square meter in 1999, Tiantongyuan was built to provide affordable housing

. Nearly 20 years later, property prices in the community have risen more than fourteenfold to 38,000 yuan ($5,600) per sq m.

China achieved 6.7 percent GDP growth year-on-year in the firs

quarter, and the second quarter’s growth will be stable as expected, he said.

With increasing urbanization, China has great potential demand for such things as ir

on and steel products, providing room for investments from Europe, Li added.

The premier said the EU’s investment in China only accounted for 2 percent of its overall outbound investment, while Chines

e investment to EU countries was just 1 percent of the union’s inbound investment last year.

Last year saw a 7 percent year-on-year increase in EU companies investing in China, and the i

ncrease surged to 22 percent during the first five months of this year, Li said. This indicated that E

uropean companies are optimistic about China’s economic prospects and the improving market, he added.
