‘ GUANDONG TOP TARGET FOR ILLICIT DRUG TRADE AS POLICE CRACK-DOWN

Guangdong and Shandong provinces each have 10 cities among the 108 covered by the crackdown from the Ministry of Public Security, thePeople’s Daily online news portal reported yesterday, citing assistant minister Liu Yuejing.

The southern province is the mainland’s biggest market for illicit drugs and has developed a clan-based industry for the manufacture of synthetic narcotics, especially Ice, or methamphetamine, some experts say.

It also has the biggest population of addicts, with about 457,000 people on a register of suspected users, according to the provincial public security department.

The total has been growing by about 40,000 people a year since 2009, the China News Service reported.

Li Xiaodong , executive member of the board of the China Association of Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment, said one of the big issues was migrants from other parts of the country.

“Guangdong has the biggest migrant population in China. More than 60 per cent of drug users in Guangdong were from other provinces, according to our study in 2012,” Li said. “There are many cases of Hong Kong people making the trip to Guangdong to use drugs.”

‘ BARACK OBAMA SECRETLY NEGOTIATING TPP AGREEMENT FOR ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM ‘

#AceNewsServices – Nov.14 – Barack Obama is secretly negotiating the largest international trade agreement in history, and the mainstream media in the United States is almost completely ignoring it. 

If this treaty is adopted, it will be the most important step toward a one world economic system that we have ever seen. 

The name of this treaty is “the Trans-Pacific Partnership“, and the text of the treaty is so closely guarded that not even members of Congress know what is in it.  Right now, there are 12 countries that are part of the negotiations: the United States, Canada, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia,Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. 

These nations have a combined population of 792 million people and account for an astounding 40 percent of the global economy. 

And it is hoped that the EU, China and India will eventually join as well.  This is potentially the most dangerous economic treaty of our lifetimes, and yet there is very little political debate about it in this country.

RUSSIA/CHINA: ' Central Bank of Russia and Peoples Bank of China Agree Draft Currency Trade Swap Agreement Releasing US Dollar Dependency In Trade '

#AceWorldNews – RUSSIA/CHINA – August 10 – The Russian and Chinese central banks have agreed on a draft currency swap agreement, which will allow them to increase trade in domestic currencies and cut the dependence on the US dollar in bilateral payments.

​As China’s exporters were hit by the global recession in 2008, the People’s Bank of China began stepping up her intervention programme to prevent appreciation of the Yuan. By April 2011 Chinese state controlled banks had accumulated over one trillion in US treasuries and over 1.5 trillion in other dollar assets. China has indicated she plans to further rebalance her economy towards domestic consumption, and intends to stop buying dollar assets by 2016. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The draft document between the Central Bank of Russia and the People’s Bank of China on national currency swaps has been agreed by the parties,” and is at the stage of formal approval procedures, ITAR-TASS quotes the Russian regulator’s office on Thursday.

The Russian Central Bank is not giving precise details on the size of the currency swaps, nor when it will be launched. It says this will depend on demand.

According to the bank, the agreement will serve as an additional instrument for ensuring international financial stability.

Also, it will offer the possibility to obtain liquidity in critical situations.


​“The agreement will stimulate further development of direct trade in yuan and rubles on the domestic foreign exchange markets of Russia and China,” the Russian regulator said.

Currently, over 75 percent of payments in Russia-China trade settlements are made in US dollars, according to Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.

The Beginning and the End of the Next Global Currency

A while ago l predicted the currency changes in the market to a number of my colleagues who then could not see the“Sign of the Times” but l was looking at a number of indicators. These were that the Chinese believe in keeping to customs and are steeped very much in the past ,so much so that they would keep their“Sovereign Currency” the Yuan in tact.

Their decision on many occasions has been to not devalue, as so many other countries have advised.

They have stuck to their guns and the time is coming when this “Third World Currency” will become one that everyone will want to trade!

So to today’ s article in the AFP it deals with changes and how the deals with both London and Singapore will challenge the once “Almighty Dollar“ and how with new free-trade zones opening up ,it could well one day become the “People’s Currency” then where will this leave these oil rich nations.

The demise of the “Petro-Dollar ” could we finally see the end of OPEC and their stranglehold on the per barrel price.
