Desired Destination For Didi Kuaidi: Keep Drivers, Officials Happy - WSJ

China’s biggest taxi-hailing app says it can take the hassle out of travel while keeping taxi drivers and regulators happy.

Didi Kuaidi Joint Co.—the merged entity formed by ride-fetching mobile app operators Kuaidi Dache and Didi Dache—said Friday it will launch an online platform that will allow customers to order a range of transportation services online, including regular taxis and high-end taxis, as well to take part in carpooling or find a designated driver.

Hong Kong and Mainland China to Partly Open Markets for Investment Funds - NYT

Six months after a groundbreaking link between their stock markets took effect, Hong Kong and mainland China announced on Friday that they would partly open their respective markets for investment funds.

In a joint announcement after markets closed on Friday, the China Securities Regulatory Commission and Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission said a trial program to allow funds registered in one jurisdiction to be marketed to individual investors in the other would begin on July 1.

The Dark Side of Chinese Investment in Africa - ChinaFile

Sam Pa is a mysterious man, largely unknown to the outside world. Yet Pa, who goes by at least seven different aliases, represents the nefarious side of China’s engagement in Africa. Sam Pa and his associates in the Hong Kong-based consortium known as the 88 Queensway Group represent a new breed of predatory investors who work in the shadows to close billions of dollars in questionable deals that have no oversight of any kind.

Tianjin University Defends Chinese Scientists Indicted by US - NYT

Two days after the United States Justice Department announced the indictments of six Chinese scientists suspected of stealing technology, including three professors from Tianjin University, the Chinese state news agency Xinhua published a response from the university titled: “Tianjin University Expresses Serious and Grave Concern Over Accusations Against Its Professors.”
The university also expressed “indignation” at allegations that it had inappropriately benefited from the scientists’ alleged theft of technology from American companies.

American Jailed for Theft Describes Conditions in a Chinese Detention Center - NYT

In a report it issued last week about the widespread abuse of detainees in China’s criminal justice system, Human Rights Watch interviewed dozens of people who claimed to have been mistreated and tortured while in police custody. Nearly all of them were given anonymity so they could speak to investigators without fear of retribution from the Chinese authorities.

But one witness in the report stood out: Stuart Foster, an American sociology professor who spent nearly eight months in a southern Chinese detention center after he was arrested on theft charges in 2013.

More Than Half of Beijing Residents Live Far From City Center - WSJ

The bulk of Beijing’s population lives in suburban areas where public services are in relative short supply, municipal authorities said this week, underscoring the challenges city planners face in managing migration flows into the Chinese capital.

Censorship and Publishing in China - ChinaFile

This week, a new PEN American Center report “Censorship and Conscience: Foreign Authors and the Challenge of Chinese Censorship,” by Alexa Olesen, draws fresh attention to a perennial problem for researchers, scholars, and creative writers trying to reach readers in China. The lure of China’s book market is powerful—revenues are projected to top $16 billion this year—but at what cost to freedom of expression?

Chinese Scientists Indicted by US Are Seen as Stars at Home - NYT

Several of the six Chinese scientists who were charged with economic espionage by the United States this week are young stars in their fields, and any government ties they have are rooted in their work with a university vying to be a major force in microchip engineering and sales, according to online documents and an interview with a colleague.

The indictments announced by the United States Justice Department on Tuesday were widely reported in the Chinese news media, and they surprised many people here, especially those who know the six accused men.

Hong Kong to get new crowdfunded independent newspaper - Guardian

A crowdfunded online newspaper is to be launched in Hong Kong to combat the lack of diversity and add what the organisers say will be “a truly independent voice”.

To be called Hong Kong Free Press, the free English-language newspaper will have its soft launch in June and start regular publication by 1 July – the anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to Chinese sovereignty.
A group of journalists concerned at lack of press freedom secured launch funding after just two days

Hanergy Parent Says Operations Are ´Normal´ With ´No Overdue Loans´- Forbes

The parent company of Hong Kong-listed Hanergy Thin Film, the renewable energy firm controlled by billionaire Li Hejun whose shares plunged by 47% before being suspended yesterday, said in a statement this evening its group operations “are normal in all respects and we maintain a good financial position with no overdue loans.”

That assertion by Hanergy Holding Group differs from a report by Caixin magazine’s website today that said the parent company had used its shares to take out loans but has been unable to repay some of them.

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.
