    on September 24, 2023 at 3:10 am

    BEIJING/SEOUL - China's President Xi Jinping on Saturday (Sept 23) said he will seriously consider visiting South Korea, Yonhap news agency reported, as part of efforts to support peace and security on the Korean Peninsula. Separately China Central Television (CCTV) reported that Xi had told South Korean Prime Minister Han Duck-soo on Saturday that China is willing to work to promote a strategic partnership between the two countries. Xi, who has not visited South Korea since 2014, held talks with Han in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou before the opening ceremony of the Asian Games on Saturday. The commitment to cooperation came ahead of scheduled trilateral talks in Seoul on Sept 26 involving senior officials from China, Japan and South Korea, intended to pave the way for the first summit between the three countries in four years.

  • China's Xi opens Hangzhou Asian Games, ceremony dazzles
    on September 24, 2023 at 3:02 am

    HANGZHOU, China - China's President Xi Jinping opened the Covid-19-delayed 19th Asian Games in the Eastern city of Hangzhou during a spectacular and at times raucous ceremony on Saturday (Sept 23), which organisers hope will lift the mood in a nation struggling with an economic slump. Spectators in the city's 80,000 capacity stadium let out a huge roar as Xi was introduced and walked in to sit with visiting dignitaries including International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach and Syria President Bashar al-Assad. The Games, delayed by a year due to China's measures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, will be the country's biggest sporting event in over a decade in several metrics, with around 12,000 athletes from 45 nations competing in 40 sports. After the Chinese flag was brought out, the first team out was Afghanistan, whose female athletes, based abroad due to sport for women being banned by the Taliban, walked together with their male counterparts. Their flagbearers carried the tri-colour flag for Afghanistan which is used by international resistance movements and shunned by the Taliban. […]

  • Even China's 1.4 billion population can't fill all its vacant homes, former official says
    on September 24, 2023 at 2:11 am

    BEIJING - Even China's population of 1.4 billion would not be enough to fill all the empty apartments littered across the country, a former official said on Saturday (Sept 23), in a rare public critique of the country's crisis-hit property market. China's property sector, once the pillar of the economy, has slumped since 2021 when real estate giant China Evergrande Group defaulted on its debt obligations following a clampdown on new borrowing. Big-name developers such as Country Garden Holdings continue to teeter close to default even to this day, keeping home-buyer sentiment depressed. As of the end of August, the combined floor area of unsold homes stood at 648 million square metres, the latest data from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) show. That would be equal to 7.2 million homes, according to Reuters calculations, based on the average home size of 90 square metres. […]
