Natalie’s Commentary: China is the number one secretive country in the world except infamously known for stealing cybersecurity intelligence and other important scientific, medical and engineering advances from the United States and from other parts of the world.
China was been handling and providing a massive worldwide supply chain to the United States, Canada, Australia, European and Asian countries evidently without a problem until the pandemic slowly moved its way through the whole investment and consumer market supply chain. I will add, this was their big idea along with Fauci’s gain of function EcoHealth Alliance partnership with Pfizer-BioNtech building a P4 Pfizer Virology Lab next to the P4 Wuhan Virology Lab in Wuhan, China.
There is something terrible wrong going on in China. The lockdowns in Shanghai are based on China’s Zero-COVID policy except I don’t believe COVID-19 is the problem.
Why is the Chinese Communist dictatorship stealing everything from Shanghai’s exclusive high rise residents including anything of value and their money hidden in their homes. European businesses are moving out because they can’t possibly sustain in this prison lockdown in Shanghai.
China is evidently much weaker than they want to appear to the world publicly while locking down more than 300 million people while continually saber-rattling their hypersonic missile capability.
JP Morgan apparently let the cat out of the bag; announcing a large number of Chinese internet stocks are uninvestable and then retracted their statement.
And here we are today in the United States with a shortage of partially important ingredients from China used in baby formula. Adding to the terrible inflationary costs due to President Biden shutting down most of our energy sector; oil and gas.
A major concern to me and should be to the United States federal government, FEMA and the FBI are major food processing plants being blown up and exploding due to arsonist terrorists. And no one in the federal government is intensively investigating who is committing these sinister acts and arresting and stopping them.
China has also been allowed to purchase major agricultural properties in the United States. China is an adversarial enemy to the United States except for the fact that President Biden and son Hunter Biden have made exclusive pay2play deals with the Chinese Communist Party proven and exposed in Peter Schweizer’s new tell all book “Red Handed”. ~ Natalie
China’s ‘Zero-COVID’ Controls Prompt EU Firms to Consider Moving Investments Elsewhere
From The Epoch Times By Dorothy Li May 8, 2022 and Nats.news Commentary
A top business group says that China’s zero-COVID policy has made European companies weigh a shift of investments out of China.
The strict COVID-19 lockdown and supply chain disruptions have rattled business confidence, according to a survey by the European Chamber of Commerce in China published on May 5.
“Our members are weathering the storm for now, but if the current situation continues, they will increasingly evaluate alternatives to China,” said Jorg Wuttke, the chamber’s president. “A more expensive, functioning market is better than one that is relatively cheaper, but paralyzed.”
A total of 92 percent of the businesses that responded to the survey stated that they had been affected by recent port closures, a decline in road freight, and rising sea freight costs.
Nearly a quarter of the 372 respondents were considering moving current or planned investments out of China, more than double the number at the beginning of the year and marking the highest proportion in a decade.
About 60 percent of businesses have cut their business revenue projections this year, while nearly a third said they have reduced staffing levels.
The survey, conducted in late April, is one of the few indicators of business sentiment over Beijing’s heavy-handed COVID-19 control measures.
The Chinese regime’s determination to eliminate the virus through lockdowns and mandatory quarantines has brought major manufacturing and tech hubs to a halt. As of May 3, 43 cities are under full or partial lockdowns or have implemented district-based controls, which involve strict mobility restrictions for local residents, according to Nomura.
There’s no sign that the regime will change its course. The lockdown in the financial center of Shanghai has entered its second month. The city of Beijing is stepping upmeasures to curb COVID-19, with about 15 percent of subway stations closing on May 4.
In a recent interview with a Swiss media outlet, the top European business community’s president said the Chinese Communist Party leaders have become “prisoners of their own narrative” after declaring their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic as being “much better than the decadent West.”
Domestically, many experts and economists have also expressed concerns about the expensive policy, to which the regime has often responded with censorship. The social media accounts of Hao Hong, a prominent market strategist, were blocked this month after he warned of the economic effects of the lockdown and the capital outflow from China.
