Internet Information Chief Emphasizes China’s Strict Adhernce to Doing Good Business

first_imgThe Editor-in-Chief of China Internet Information Center, Wang Xiaohui has emphasized that the Chinese Government has a strong law for doing business in China and other parts of the world where his country’s presence is felt.Making the emphasis on business practice through the internet and other commodities, Mr. Wang said the government, being the watch dog for everything in China, keenly watches out for plagiarism or copyright breach and other illegal business practices.He said though there are still those who circumvent the law to copy others’ products on the market, they are severely punished when caught in the act.“There are people who go into people’s mail boxes to get their telephone numbers and email links as a way of falsely collecting money,” he said, “but when they are caught by the government, they face harsh punishment under the law.”Mr. Wang said the Chinese Government stance against illegal business practices, especially in the technology industry, is meant to protect those branding their products so that piracy will not discourage their ventures.Mr. Wang’s remarks were made in response to concerns raised by African journalists participating in an ongoing seminar organized by the Chinese Government. The journalists raised questions about many China-made consumer technology products, such as mobile phones and digital cameras, that are imitations of well established brands and sold at a fraction of the price of the authentic items.Besides, the participants noted that some authentic products that used to be made in China are no longer on the market, but ones that are not durable.Mr. Wang also stressed that China was conscious of introducing itself to the world and the world to China, and as such the government does everything to maintain its business image since part of its objective is enhancing economic cooperation between China and the rest of the world.As an internet expert, he also said Government has a ban on Facebook, Twitter and parts of Google for the purpose of controlling the unnecessary flow of unwanted information that has the propensity to stir up conflict.He, however, disclosed that China has developed its own “web”, known as “WeChat” which allows millions of Chinese and foreigners to subscribe to, but it is closely monitored so that unwanted information will not be used on it.According to him, monitoring is done to increase protection for those engaged in creation of websites and privacy of all users.On government’s control of the economy, social and political rights for which Beijing is receiving criticism from the west, Mr. Wang said “Internet governance is sovereignty and not something another has to agree before others do.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

BRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS BOW OUT OF FAI SENIOR CUP

first_imgRovers goalkeeper Rory Kelly had a super game. Pic by Northwest Newspix.A very entertaining end-to-end game was played in front of a large crowd at Leckview Park, this being the replay, as both sides played out a 0-0 draw on Saturday night in Athlone.Letterkenny Rovers started the first half well and played well throughout. When Rovers look back on the game they will be disappointed not to turn the chances they had onto the score sheet. Steve Emeka had a goal disallowed for offside after hitting the net.Athlone started slow but grew into the game as the first half came to an end. As neither team could dominate midfield, chances were few and far between for the majority of the second half. As the game opened up with 10 minutes to go, the two sides had opportunities but neither could find that elusive goal.Both teams had a chance to win it at the depth as Rover’s striker Steve Emeka hit the bar from a corner on the 91st minute of normal time, the ball was then cleared by Athlone Town and set substitute and former Shamrock Rovers player Emeka Onwubiko bearing down on goal with seconds remaining on the clock.Paul McVeigh feels the full force of the Athlone defence.A super save from Kelly went into the path of Athlone’s Val Feeney who would’ve been sure he was sending his team through to the last 16 of the FAI senior cup only to be cleared by David Shovlin, which gave Letterkenny Rovers another shot in extra time as the referee blew the full time whistle of normal time. FT 0-0Extra time began with both sides sitting deep knowing what was at stake. The Airticity First division side began to get on top and peppered Letterkenny’s goals, but the Letterkenny rearguard stood defiant. Another good save in the second half of extra time from the Letterkenny keeper following a shot from Feeney kept the nerves going around Leckview. Good play from substitute Kevin O’Donnell gave captain Darren McElwaine the ball inside Athlone’s box, but couldn’t get a clear shot away at Ryan Coulter’s goal.As penalties were looking likely Athlone went on the attack as good wing play from Onwubiko who squared the ball to the oncoming Alan O’Sullivan to finish into the Rover’s net with 117 minutes played.A brave effort from Eamon McGonigley’s men who can hold their heads up high after competing with senior side Athlone Town over two enthralling fixtures.Athlone Town go into the next round of the FAI cup as Letterkenny Rovers have a domestic cup final against Cockhill in the coming weeks.  BRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS BOW OUT OF FAI SENIOR CUP was last modified: May 24th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AthloneExtra timefai cupLetterkenny Roverslast_img read more
