Original title: German media said that Canada’s frozen immigration project was too many applications for Chinese riches

In order to send assets and family safety abroad, China’s super-rich have opened more than one back door. The latest news on the disclosure of huge capital migration routes shows this. This time, the information disclosed was from Hong Kong.

In the past few years, the Canadian Consulate General in Hong Kong has received too many investment immigration applications from the richest people in mainland China, so that the Canadian government has to freeze this project to attract investment immigrants. The relevant departments responsible for hosting the immigration application should be overwhelmed by the large number of application documents.

Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post said that the details of the Canadian Immigration Appeal’s immigration application data came from Canadian immigration lawyer Richard. Kuran. The investment immigration application received by the Consulate General in Hong Kong in 2011 accounted for 8606 of the total number of such applications received by Canada in the world that year.

In addition, 99% of applications submitted in Hong Kong are from the mainland. The Canadian authorities have been completely overwhelmed. In 2012 it approved 3,643 investor visas, and it was originally intended to approve more.

By the end of 2012, Chinese people’s investment commitments based on visa applications have reached 7.5 billion Canadian dollars (1 Canadian dollar is about 5.52 yuan). The Canadian Consulate General in Hong Kong has a total of 53,580 investment immigration applications. Under Canadian policy, applicants must have a net worth of at least $1.6 million and a $80,000 interest-free loan for a five-year period. Kuran criticized that the Canadian visa was “sold out”.

China’s super rich are also waiting in line for investment visas in the US, New Zealand or Australia. Since 2007, the United States has become the preferred immigrant country for Chinese.

Polls show that 58% of immigrant applicants in China want to get their children to receive better education abroad, while 32% are preparing for retirement.

U.S.-European Diplomatic Dark War Upgrades US Assistant Secretary of State Rough Words Lead to Confusion

US-European Diplomacy Dark War escalates US Assistant Secretary of State vulgar language confusing

Data Map: US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria · Newland

China News Service February 9th According to The New York Times The Chinese website reported that the serious newspaper “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” published an editorial on Friday: Berlin & mdash; — “It’s really stupid”, describing the recent sudden war of words between the United States and Europe, this The focus of one time is on who should play a leadership role and how to play it in trying to calm the Ukrainian crisis.

The report pointed out that the title shows the tension that occurred this week due to the announcement of a recording. In the recording, a senior US diplomat denounced some efforts made by the EU in Ukraine. On Friday, the second recording appeared, and European diplomats complained about the Americans in the recording.

Since the end of November last year, Ukrainian President Viktor F. Yanukovych refused to sign an agreement with the European Union, many exchanges between the West and Ukraine have appeared. The characteristics of the order, and this title also reflects this state. Yanukovych then turned to Russia and accepted the $15 billion (about 91 billion yuan) aid plan provided by the latter. However, due to ongoing anti-government protests in Kiev, the Russian capital, Russia has temporarily suspended the plan.

According to the report, after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the United States and Europe had different purposes for Ukraine. This country with a population of 45 million, a vast territory and a problem-ridden country literally means “on the verge ”.

The US foreign policy is strategically considered as the highest goal. For example, the United States helped Ukraine destroy the nuclear weapons of the former Soviet Union. At the same time, Europe saw opportunities to trade.

With the EU’s eastward expansion, including Poland and Romania, there is a growing belief that neighboring Ukraine needs to establish formal relations with the EU to regulate domestic commercial and judicial systems and promote cross-border The development of trade. In 2012, Poland and Ukraine even jointly hosted the top sports events in Europe & mdash; — European Football Championship.

Russia and Ukraine have a history of centuries. Under the rule of Vladimir V. Putin, Russia is even more painfully aware that the Soviet Empire has No longer exists, Russia is watching the situation in Ukraine with deepening doubts. Now, it seems determined to use the Western chaos in dealing with the Ukrainian issue.

The announcement of the recording made the situation further confusing. In the first video uploaded anonymously on YouTube, US Assistant Secretary of State for Victoria Affairs Victoria · Victoria Nuland blamed Europe for its weak efforts in Ukraine in a disrespectful manner, not enough to deal with Russia’s challenge.

On Friday, the second recording was uploaded to the Internet, in which German senior diplomat Helga · Helga Schmid complained to the EU special envoy in Kiev in his native language, saying that the United States is facing European diplomacy. The accusation of policy is "unfair".

The envoy, Poles · Jan Tombinski retorted, “We are not participating in the strongest game.” & rdquo; In the handling of the crisis, “we are a good means”.

Schmidt replied, yes, but the reporters are telling European officials that the Americans are preaching everywhere, saying that Europeans are very weak. So she suggested that Tumbinski talk to the US ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey · Geoffrey Pyatt, who was talking to Newland on the recording.

Although the Obama administration accused the Russians of recording first and then uploading Newland’s talks to confess, the EU or Germany did not blame Russia for the second recording.

German Chancellor Angela · Angela Merkel issued a very harshly worded statement saying that Newland’s words were “unacceptable” and that her statement showed Germany and The relationship in the United States has become so rash. Earlier, Merkel’s cell phone was the object of US surveillance.

The EU has been deeply involved in the crisis management in Ukraine, which is consistent with its status as Europe’s largest economy and its history of how many centuries it has with its eastern neighbors. In a speech to the German parliament on November 18 last year, Merkel, who grew up in the communist East Germany, stressed that for all countries, the Cold War should have ended, including those who have A country that is allied by Russia but is now independent. She provided a strong reason for Ukraine to sign the European agreement.

US Vice President Joseph &middotR· former national security assistant to Joseph R. Biden Jr., now Julian &middot, who is now at the Center for a New American Security, said that the EU and the United States There is a fundamental tension between the Americans because Americans can express their unified views, but they have no patience to wait for the EU to make decisions.

She said, “European Union countries have different sovereignty issues, different threat concepts, and different priorities. As a result, no matter what the issue of the day will be, the US will not be able to get answers and responses quickly. It is always impossible to reach a certain agreement between the United States and the European Union. The United States has been deeply frustrated for this. ”

This week, your confrontation with me has explained how much interest the Ukrainian issue involves, and on this issue, Western diplomats seem to be unable to put an end to differences.

In the editorial entitled “It’s really stupid”, the newspaper’s international news editor, Klaus-Dieter Frankenberger, pointed out How did it last month for Washington’s “bad feelings” how to provoke recent problems. “Of course, you can blame Europe for some policies against Ukraine. However, this is not to say that it seems that the US foreign policy has found it. In fact, apart from a few small sanctions against the current regime in Kiev, they couldn’t think of anything else. ”
