Preparem-se para tempos difíceis, adverte presidente chinês no meio da guerra comercial com os EUA

A China tem que se preparar para tempos difíceis já que a situação internacional é cada vez mais complexa, disse o presidente chinês, Xi Jinping, em comentários divulgados pela mídia estatal nesta quarta-feira, no momento em que o país enfrenta aumentos de tarifas numa guerra comercial com os Estados Unidos da América (EUA). Os dois países estão elevando as tarifas comerciais sobre os produtos um do outro, depois que as negociações para resolver a disputa foram interrompidas. A disputa intensificou-se desde a semana passada com Washington colocando a empresa chinesa de equipamentos de telecomunicações Huawei Technologies [HWT.UL] numa lista negra de comércio, um golpe potencialmente devastador para a empresa que agitou as cadeias de fornecimento de tecnologia e investidores. Durante uma viagem de três dias nesta semana para a província de Jiangxi, um dos berços da revolução comunista da China, Xi pediu às pessoas que aprendam as lições das dificuldades do passado. “Hoje...precisamos superar vários grandes riscos e desafios nacionais e estrangeiros e conquistar novas vitórias para o socialismo com características chinesas”, afirmou Xi segundo a agência estatal de notícias Xinhua. “O nosso país ainda está em um período de importantes oportunidades estratégicas para o desenvolvimento, mas a situação internacional é cada vez mais complicada”, acrescentou. “Devemos estar conscientes da natureza complexa e de longo prazo de vários fatores desfavoráveis em casa e no exterior, e nos preparar adequadamente para várias situações difíceis.” A publicação não detalhou essas dificuldades, nem mencionou directamente a guerra comercial ou os Estados Unidos. Xi também falou sobre a importância da tecnologia e “enfatizou que a inovação tecnológica é a força vital das empresas”. “Somente tendo propriedade intelectual e tecnologia de base é possível produzir produtos que possuam competitividade central, e só então uma posição invencível pode ser alcançada em meio à competição acirrada.” A China precisa de dominar mais tecnologias essenciais e aproveitar o “terreno elevado” no desenvolvimento industrial, acrescentou.

Thu, 2019-05-23 01:55 RIYADH: The Shoura Council held its 44th regular session in Riyadh on Wednesday under the chairmanship of Dr. Yahya bin Abdullah Al-Samaan, assistant speaker of the council. During the session, the council called on the Saudi Railways Organization to develop the infrastructure of the existing rail system to enable it to use advanced and fast trains to reduce the time of journeys on Riyadh, Al-Ahsa and Dammam lines. The council asked the Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technology Zones (MODON) to identify the regions’ competitive advantages, urge investors to benefit from them and create agriculture-based, livestock-based and fisheries-based industries. It also called on MODON to boost cooperation with government bodies and benefit from meetings, conferences and exhibitions to showcase the strength and resilience of the Kingdom’s economy in accordance with its 2030 Vision. The session approved a project that aims to broaden the private sector’s role in heritage and cultural festivities throughout the year. It enables the private sector to play an important role in the promotion of heritage and cultural festivals in improving internal tourism and national unity. The system seeks to support local productive families and popular professions, in addition to creating job opportunities for Saudis across the Kingdom. The council also approved a convention between the Saudi government and the Republic of Benin in the field of air transport services, signed in Riyadh on Oct. 2, 2018.

From Elbrus to Everest, a Saudi explorer climbs for a cause

Thu, 2019-05-23 02:29 From cancer patients to war refugees, the list of beneficiaries of the causes for which Saudi explorer Mona Shahab climbs the world’s highest summits is lengthy. Currently, she is tackling the world’s tallest mountain, Everest. If she succeeds in scaling it, it would see Shahab tick five boxes out of the classic adverturer’s to-do list of Seven Summits — the highest point on each of the seven continents. Raising awareness and funds — more than $350,000 (SR1.3 million) to date — for charitable causes is what chiefly motivates Shahab to win the Explorers Grand Slam title — that is, to reach the North Pole and the South Pole in addition to the Seven Summits. But beyond that, she wants to send a message to Saudi women — and to the world at large. “One of my goals is for us to gently shake the world, to change misperceptions, and maybe even shatter some stereotypes. Many raise an eyebrow when they hear a Saudi woman has achieved something,” Shahab told Arab News from the Everest base camp part way through her expedition. “Saudi women can, Saudi women will, reach whatever heights they set their mind and heart to.” DIZZYHEIGHTS 2012 — Completed Kilimanjaro4 Cancer and helped raise funds to build the first detection cancer center in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province. Also completed “A Woman’s Journey: Everest Base Camp” with nine other Saudi women to raise breast cancer awareness in the Kingdom. 2013 — Elbrus4Cancer, scaling Europe’s Elbrus mountain, to raise funds for Umniyaty, Saudi version of “Make a Wish Foundation.” 2014 — MtBlanc4Humanity by scaling Mont Blanc — the highest mountain in the Alps and the highest in Europe west of Russia’s Caucasus peaks — to reinforce the importance of tolerance among citizens of the world. 2015 — Vinson4Mohammed — a mission completed by Shahab standing on the roof of Antarctica for Mohammed, a Syrian boy diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Also completed Toubkal4Smiles, which saw Shahab stand on the roof of the Arab world. 2016 — Kilimanjaro4Mawaddah — to raise funds to help build a safe haven where children of divorcees can meet parents. Also completed LeninPeak4Tomorrow to raise funds to give 100 refugee children in Lebanon tan education. 2017 Aconcagua4Cancer — in Latin America in support of a child with cancer and in memory of her friend Marwa Fayed. 2019 Aims to climb Mount Everest as part of Shahab’s goal to win the Explorers Grand Slam title — to reach the North Pole, the South Pole and all of the Seven Summits. Together with Joyce Azzam and Nelly Attar, from Lebanon, and Nadhirah Alharthy from Oman, Shahab is part of an all-Arab women’s team aiming to scale Mount Everest, 8,848 metres above sea level, this month. Next Shahab has her eye on two of the world’s highest seven summits — Australia’s tallest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko, and Denali, the highest point in North America. Once those peaks have been scaled, she intends to make her way to the North and South Pole on skis and become the first Saudi to complete the Explorers Grand Slam challenge. “Saudi Arabia is not in the Explorer Grand Slam’s books yet and there are dear Saudi friends (HH Prince Bandar bin Khalid Al-Saud and Raha Moharrak) who are closer to it than I am. They have already completed the Seven Summits,” said Shahab, who is a clinical child psychologist by profession. “Less than 50 names are on the current list, so it will be a pretty big achievement when a Saudi’s name is finally included.” Shahab, who was born and raised in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, said that she loved the outdoors from a young age and was bitten by the hiking bug early on. “Growing up, my parents would punish me by not allowing me to go outside,” she told Arab News. “I never wanted to be between four walls, boxed up in a room. I have always loved the outdoors. “Whether playing tennis or softball, I would have bruised knees because I was always outside playing with my friends in a compound once I had completed my homework.” Shahab said it was when she moved to the US to continue her education that she considered her first altitude hike. “I was working at the Children’s Hospital Boston, and one of my close friends emailed me asking if I would like to join him and his wife who were going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in 2007.” Due to visa issues, that trip did not work out. But the idea never left Shahab’s mind.  “Fast forward to 2010, my friends and I are sitting by the sea in India and out of the blue I ask, ‘Kilimanjaro early 2012. Who’s in?’” By 2011, the trip had been planned. “It just so happened that all of us were members of the Saudi Cancer Foundation in the Eastern Province, and we ended up helping to raise funds for the first early detection centre for cancer in the Eastern province.” After that first trip, Shahab has never looked back. “So Kilimanjaro was my first high-altitude hike, and I basically exchanged vows with the mountains ever since.” In 2012 Shahab was part of the first team of Saudi women, headed by HRH Princess Reema bint Bandar Al-Saud, to reach the Everest Base Camp. It was during the expedition that she met a woman who has inspired Shahab. Shahab forged a friendship with Marwa Fayed, the late wife of Omar Samra, who was the first Egyptian to climb Mount Everest, the Seven Summits and ski to both the South and the North Poles. “Right after trekking to the Everest Base Camp together, we decided to climb Aconcagua the following year,” Shahab recalled. However, Fayed, could not fulfill her ambition: three days after the birth of her daughter in 2013, she passed away. Fayed’s death came as a shock,  Shahab said. “So I aimed to climb that mountain in her memory.” After failing in 2014, Shahab achieved their shared Aconcagua dream in 2017. Now, during her mission to the top of Everest, it is Fayed’s memory that Shahab holds dear. She is also raising funds for a charity that Fayed founded. “Marwa had founded a charity called Marwa Fayed’s Toy Run. It had humble beginnings — to collect toys and distribute them to orphans in Egypt. It then expanded to refugee camps worldwide and today the charity is educating children in all areas — from theatre and analytical thinking to space. “It only takes $500 a year to educate a child on the skills they need to become change agents in their communities. I have joined forces in the hope that we can reach 300 children in underprivileged areas in Egypt.” Shahab has teamed up with Gento, an anti-bacterial company in the Middle East, which believed in her mission and offered her full sponsorship for her Everest ascent. Together they are raising awareness on obesity and diabetes, two conditions plaguing both the Kingdom and the wider region, as part of Gento’s commitment to highlight the importance of hygiene and community physical activities. “We want to motivate people and encourage them to move and become more physically active. Research shows that women who are more physically active are at less risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer,” Shahab told Arab News. “The focus now in the Kingdom is on Vision 2030. In order to move our nation to higher heights, we need to start with ourselves. Let’s get moving, Saudi! “We want men, women, and youth to toss all those excuses — “I can’t,” “I don’t want to,” “No one’s going to support me” — out the window.” Shahab, who along with her team-mates hopes to reach the summit of Everest in late May, continued: “We are here. We are standing on our own peaks whatever they may be, one hand, one heart. If we can do it, anyone can. “Change doesn’t happen in the blink of an eye. It takes time and that is OK.”       Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Editor’s ChoiceMountaineering Nepali sherpa scales Everest record 24 times — with one more to goEverest conqueror says end of Saudi Arabia stadium ban can inspire a generation

Ramadan in Najd: Between the past and the present

Thu, 2019-05-23 03:18 RIYADH: The month of Ramadan brings spiritual joy to Saudi Arabia — different to anywhere else around the world. The holy month has not changed since fasting was introduced, though different areas still have their own peculiarities and quirks that have evolved gradually over time, in tandem with other traditions. Najd is one of those.    Crescent sighting According to the Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA), in the early days of the Kingdom there were traditions that were practiced before and during the holy month, such as the crescent sighting ceremony in the final days of the month of Sha’aban. Important members of the local government, as well as princes, sheikhs and judges, would gather alongside consultants atop a high, flat area before sunset to witness the crescent moon. “Equipped with small mountains and plains, the Najd region was celebrated as a hub for astronomy, serving as the source of confirmation that the sighting of the moon had taken place,” the DGCA states. “The consultants, experts in the phases of the moon, would determine the visibility of the slight crescent (hilal) moon that marks the beginning of the next month. When the hilal crescent was witnessed, neighboring areas were informed either through a loud call or through signaling shots being fired.”   Preparations  One of the main traditions that the people of Diriyah used to follow was  to make sure that the mosques were well equipped for the holy month. According to the DGCA: “Cleaning and lighting the mosques was a priority for the community, and it was a tradition for residents to bring oil lamps to light the mosques through the night.”  Now, the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah and Guidance plays an essential role in preparing mosques throughout the country and abroad. During Ramadan, it makes requests for preachers to offer religious speeches and lectures, as well as to distribute copies of the Holy Qu’ran. Restoration and refurbishment is also high on the agenda. According to the ministry’s website, this year the director general of its office in Riyadh, Sheikh Sami bin Sulaiman Al-Mashiqih, distributed 50,000 square meters of new carpets to mosques in the city alone. FASTFACT   • According to the Diriyah Gate Development Authority, in the early days of the Kingdom there were traditions that were practiced before and during the holy month of Ramadan, such as the crescent-sighting ceremony in the final days of the month of Sha’aban. • One of the main traditions that the people of Diriyah used to follow was to make sure that the mosques were well equipped for the holy month. Donations Perhaps one of the most important  Ramadan issues in the past was heat — considered a great suffering for previous generations who lived without electricity and air conditioners. According to the DGDA, the people of Diriyah used sheepskin or goatskin flasks to store water and keep it cool. The Najdi people during the holy month used to donate the skins of their sacrifices to the mosque to be made into flasks for the worshippers as a Ramadan tradition. They also donated palm trees and left dates at the door of the mosque, a practice known as “asha Ramadan.” Now, the community donates water bottles instead, as well as appliances such as refrigerators, a variety of foods, and chairs for the disabled to use inside the mosques.   Food The DGDA states that Najdi people in the past were characterized by simplicity when it came to Ramadan dishes, with a range of traditional and simple foods. They used to drink a sweet date juice called “Merais” at iftar and suhoor, which was particularly popular among the elderly. It was believed that it provided people with strength and energy when they fasted during the day. According to DGDA: “Merais is made by soaking dates in water, then filtering them into a thick juice. Some people in the region would enjoy Merais with ‘iqt,’ a dried and ground yogurt, to give the traditional drink a sour flavor. The most common and traditional Ramadan beverages among Najdi people were, and continue to be, camel milk and laban made from sheep milk.” Nowadays, drinking laban is common at every Najdi table. People drink it while eating dates, others drink Arabic coffee with dates to break their fast. “The Najdi region,” the DGDA continues, “is celebrated in the Arabian Peninsula for its local foods. Famous dishes originated in the region including ‘henaney,’ a sweet breakfast made from wheat dough, various type of dates and a thick date paste, known as ‘abet el tamer’. ‘Al-Hayes,’ a variation of ‘henaney’ made with ‘iqt,’ was attributed to the Sons of Hanifa and remains one of the most famous Najdi foods.”  During the early 1980s  new dishes were introduced to the Najdi iftar table during Ramadan through importers, including samosas, pasta, luqiamat (a crunchy sweet dumpling) and other foreign foods.  Muneerah Al-Ajlan, a local Najdi, said: “Soup and samosas are necessary on our iftar table. The family gathers for dates and coffee; after that the men go to the mosque while women head to the kitchen to carry out the second part of the iftar.”  Recently, many people and neighborhoods in Riyadh began to celebrate Gargee’an, which is primarily observed in the Eastern Gulf area, and which takes place on the 15th night of Ramadan. Children usually dress in traditional costumes and go door-to-door to receive sweets and nuts from neighbors and sing traditional songs. “On the second weekend of Ramadan, we celebrate Gargee’an in our house, where the whole family gathers and the children distribute candy,” added Al-Ajlan.

Saudi Arabia, UAE to attend US-led Palestine investment meeting

Author: Thu, 2019-05-23 05:13 JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia and the UAE will participate in a conference next month in Bahrain aimed at encouraging investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as part of US President Donald Trump’s long–awaited Israel–Palestine peace plan.  The Peace to Prosperity conference, to be hosted on June 25–26 in cooperation with the US, has already been rebuffed by Palestinian officials and business leaders, who want their political demands met by any proposed solution to the conflict. The Palestine Liberation Organization and Islamist group Hamas have called for an Arab boycott of the meeting. The Saudi minister of economy and planning, Mohammed bin Majid Al–Tuwaijri, will attend, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Wednesday. The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said Abu Dhabi would also send a delegation. The Palestinian Authority has boycotted American peace efforts since late 2017, when Trump decided to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognized the latter as the capital of Israel, reversing decades of US policy. The Trump administration has sought to enlist support from Arab governments. But Saudi Arabia has assured Arab allies that it will not endorse any US plan that fails to meet key Palestinian demands, which include affirming East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state, the right of return for refugees, and a freeze on Israeli settlement construction.  Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: PalestineIsrael–Palestine peace planPalestine Liberation Organization Bahrain says conference co-hosted with US aimed at helping PalestiniansPalestinians cold-shouldered from major US-Bahraini economic ‘peace’ workshop
