Troubled Hanergy´s Debt Web Snags State Banks to Shadow Lenders - Bloomberg

One of the many mysteries behind the share price collapse of the solar panel maker controlled by Li Hejun is this: Which of the Chinese billionaire’s many creditors risk losing every yuan they put into his company?
A plethora of Chinese lenders are exposed to Hanergy Thin Film Power Group Ltd. and its parent company, including Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which is owed tens of millions of dollars. On May 20, 47 percent of Hanergy Thin Film’s market value vanished in minutes and it’s now under probe by the Hong Kong Securities & Futures Commission.
Creditors are nervous: A group of 11 lenders have asked for a meeting to voice their concerns and discuss their $82 million loan, say people familiar with the matter.

A Surprising New Source of American Jobs: China - WSJ

The 2016 presidential-campaign season will bring all sorts of familiar proposals to create jobs in the U.S., but candidates who really understand today’s global economy should highlight a more surprising possible engine of new employment for Americans: China.

China’s middle class continues to grow, reaching an estimated 630 million people by 2022. Those consumers want better health care, world-class education and a cleaner environment. China itself will eventually be able to provide those services, but meanwhile, the Internet makes it possible for China to create and sustain American jobs.

China´s internet police to "come out from behind the curtains" - Xinhua

Chinese police will on Monday publicly pilot its internet inspection arm which has long operated behind the scenes, in a bid to further combat cyber crimes, the Ministry of Public Security said Sunday.

Starting from June 1, internet police in 50 localities — including both metropolises such as Beijing and Shanghai as well as small, impoverished city such as Bijie in southwest China's Guizhou province — will officially launch their own accounts on popular social networking services including Weibo and Wechat.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd Will Eventually Take Over US$6.84 Trillion Credit Card Market in China: SiPay

In a report published on Friday, CLSA Research commented on its recent discussion with Alipay’s distributor SiPay during the 9th Annual Payment China conference in Shanghai. SiPay is very bullish on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s (NYSE:BABA) Alipay, which is consolidating other apps and cannibalizing the need for credit cards for general consumers in China. The Chinese credit card market stood at $6.84 trillion as of 2014.

No Parking Space? No Car for You, Beijing Government Says - WSJ

In addition to pollution and congestion, the city of Beijing is also inflicted with a dearth of 3.5 million parking spaces.

Due to the rapid growth of car ownership, parking has been a growing pain in Chinese mega-cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. Meanwhile, cars parked on narrow streets or curbside are commonly seen, disrupting traffic and causing quarrels.

In a bid to ease parking difficulty, the city government of Beijing aims to impose a rule from next year that will make it necessary for local residents to have a parking space before buying a car, according to a People’s Daily report last week that quoted Deputy Mayor Zhang Yankun.

Avoid this hotel. At the checkout we were forced to pay for the minibar, for products we did not use. When we protested the owner got pretty aggressive, and made clear it was impossible they could have made a mistake. The conversation escalated and he even threatened my wife. There must be similar hotels with a good location and a reasonable price.

Nice authentic Chinese food (not spoiled by European tastes) that is very good when you are craving for Chinese food after too much Italian. Preparation was a bit fast-food style, but tasting pretty well. Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere, well, real Chinese.
