Former CE calls for swift punishment of rioters to protect city’s image, business status
Former chief executive Leung Chun-ying said on Wednesday that radi上海乌托邦品茶微信
cal protesters’ violence against a tourist and a journalist at Hong Kong International
Airport was “extremely serious” as it could damage the city’s international status.上海乌托邦
The vice-chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference – the cou

Leung made the remarks after anti-government radical protesters held and assaulte

Radicals also obstructed ambulance officers and the police f
rom rescuing the two men, leading to violent clashes with riot police at the airport.
上海乌托邦品茶微信In a group interview at the Office of Former Chief Executives, Leung said the incident was “extremely serious”.
Leung noted that the violent incidents, together with protesters’ obstruction that partially paralyzed the airport for two da
ys, have seriously damaged Hong Kong’s image, reputation, and business status in the world.上海乌托邦
“It will surely have a negative impact – not just in the short term, but in the medium
term – on Hong Kong’s status as an international tourism and conference hub,” Leung warned.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Those offenders must be brought to justice swiftly. “The full weight of the law of Ho

for the park to compensate her loss. The case was heard on April 23 and the verdict is pending.
Since being disclosed by a number of Chinese media over the weekend, the case 上海夜生活
has sparked heated discussions on social media about whether it is reasonable for the world’s second largest W
alt Disney park to deny visitors the right to bring their own food. Some argue that the food and beverages supplied wi
上海夜生活品茶微信thin the park are overpriced, making the motivation behind the policy appear dubious.
In an online poll by local media shobserver.com, 40 percent of the respon
dents said they don’t mind such a policy as long as there is no price difference between the food sold in and o
utside of the park. The poll attracted more than 3,000 people in less than six hours. 上海夜生活品茶微信
Shanghai Disneyland has banned outside food, alcohol and nonalcoholic beverages over
600 milliliters inside its park since November 2017, more than a year after its opening.
This is not the first time Shanghai Disneyland got sued over the p 上海夜生活
olicy. In June 2018, a lawyer from Suzhou, Jiangsu province, tried to take the theme pa
rk to court by accusing it of violating consumer rights. But the court turned down his appeal. 上海夜生活
Wang, together with three of her classmates and a mentor, approached the case
上海夜生活品茶微信as a “service contract dispute”, calling the ban an unfair term in standard-form
consumer contracts. She also cited a statement by the Supreme Court, which said the policy of no outside food
and beverages in the catering industry is a “bullying term”, according to thePaper.cn. 上海夜生活
In one of its recent school journals, Wang and her three classmates, who are all majoring in
international law, said it’s the nature of legal practitioners to find fault with the status quo. 上海夜生活
In 2014, a college student in Yantai, Shandong province, won a lawsu

According to the plan, top local government officials will be responsible for the protection work.

“A strict management system will also be established. Anyone who conducts illegal activity that damages natural forests or threa

better address the global economic problems. The G20, for insta
上海419nce, should strengthen its position as the core platform for global economic go
vernance. Established in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, it has become a vital platform promoting global eco上海419品茶微信
nomic governance, and played an important role in the reform of the global economic governance system.
上海419For example, the G20 helped the IMF and the World Bank transform themselves after th
e global financial crisis, so they could deal with the mid-to long-term global economic problems.
But this year the G20 faces more severe challenges. Although the G20 has provided a platfo上海419品茶微信
rm for major countries such as China and the United States to negotiate trade issues, some economies
might not see the group in the same light. The G20 should therefore help the major econo
上海419mies coordinate their trade policies, in order to strengthen global economic governance. The G20 should also
focus on devising rules that would help the major economies avoid conflicts and reach acceptable agreements.
The changing profile of the G20, however, is seen as not only上海419品茶微信
an opportunity but also a challenge for the major economies. While the G20 can help coo
rdinate the trade policies of the world’s 20 largest economies, it should further enhance its authority by working ou
上海419品茶微信t a global economic governance agenda, and suggesting possible ways to resolve burning economic issues.
Thanks to China’s unprecedented economic development and increa
