CCP Tries to Stop South Korean and Japanese Companies From Leaving China

Internal documents obtained by The Epoch Times reveal that in the wave of the global industrial chain moving out of China, Chinese authorities issued an urgent order to “keep Japanese and South Korean companies from leaving China,” for both economic reasons and the CCP’s political agenda.

An internal letter from Huizhou Municipal Bureau of Commerce to the city’s Foreign Affairs Bureau on Aug. 10, 2020 indicated that over the years a total of 280 Korean-funded companies had set up plants in Huizhou, however, “affected by U.S.-China trade war, the coronavirus pandemic, and the withdrawal of Samsung Electronics from Huizhou, along with many other factors” Huizhou’s import and export trades with South Korean fell by 77.4 percent, of which exports plummeted 89.5 percent compared with last year.

According to statistics from the Huizhou Municipal Bureau of Commerce, there were 96 Korean companies in the city as of July 2020. That is to say, two thirds of Korean companies have either gone bankrupt or left China.

The official letter from the city’s Foreign Affairs Office, which was marked “extra-urgent”, showed that the CCP is becoming desperate.

Eight Mongols Commit Suicide As Authorities Push for Mandarin-Only Education

Chinese communist regime has forcibly introduced a new education policy in Inner Mongolia, requiring Mandarin-language teaching from first grade and completely removing Mongolian-language teaching and Mongolian textbooks in two years. The new policy has triggered intense protests among the ethnic Mongols. At least eight Mongolians have committed suicide to express their anger and disapproval.

In the name of “alternative bilingual education”, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to promote Mandarin-only education at schools in southern Mongolia in September. Mongols organized large-scale demonstrations to protect their culture. Teachers went on strikes and students boycotted schools. Although Chinese authorities arrested a number of protesters, tens of thousands of Mongols continued their protest, holding banners such as “Protect Mongolian Language” and “Stop the Assimilation Policy.”

Many Mongolians initiated a petition on the White House website, calling on the outside world to support their protests, and asking Washington to prevent the CCP from destroying the Mongolian language and culture by removing Mongolian-language teaching in elementary schools. They believe the CCP is attempting to force Mongols to assimilate to the Han culture, which will lead to total extinction of Mongols as an ethnic group.

EU Asked CCP’s Xi to Tear Down the Barriers

On September 14, European Union leaders told Chinese leader Xi Jinping to open up markets, respect minorities, and step back from a crackdown in Hong Kong, also asserting that Europe would no longer be taken advantage of in trade.

Anxious to show that the EU will not take sides in a global standoff between China and the United States, German Chancellor Angela Merkel joined the bloc’s chief executive and chairman to deliver a tough-talking message to Beijing.

European Council President Charles Michel, who chaired the video summit, told reporters: “Europe is a player, not a playing field,” in reference to a growing sense in Europe that China has not met its promises to engage in fair and free trade.

China’s Xi was not part of the post-summit news conference and there was no joint statement, but the state-owned Xinhua News Agency reported that Xi rejected any interference in Chinese affairs, particularly on human rights.
