One of the most successful Chinese businessmen, the co-founder and chairman of the HNA Group loves to be in the limelight, not out of vanity but because of a social responsibility in wanting to share his experiences. BLUNT. Articulate. A man with stories and of flesh and blood. These are some of the descriptions that the media and business circles have for Chen Feng. One of the most successful ...

I am attempting to prove what would happen if we for once in our lifetimes forgot about who is right and wrong. How exciting would it be if we could put our valued egos down as world citizens to bring peace?The Miracle of Forgiveness Let me start out by saying that I am deeply sorry for the loss of the innocent Taiwanese civilian.

But AU efforts to tackle those problems -- especially the conflicts that plague the continent -- are strained by a shortage of cash, poor organization, lack of capacity and often reluctance to get involved, analysts warn. The key AU policy of intervening in the internal affairs of member states emerged in the wake of Rwanda's 1994 genocide, as the international community recoiled at its own ...

The Big Hit
There are scenes in "The Big Hit" that are so awful, they simply defy description. The movie is infected with the same kind of blunderheaded idiocy and misplaced confidence that made "Last Action Hero" (1993) such a chore to sit through. Presumably, "The Big Hit" is an action-comedy, a difficult but not impossible genre to pull off. Movies of this sort require a fine balance and careful tone, and ... ...
NEW YORK -- We are living in the age of the technocrats. In business, Big Data, and the Big Brains who can parse it, rule. In government, the technocrats are on top, too. From Washington to Frankfurt to Rome, technocrats have stepped in where politicians feared to tread, rescuing economies, or at least propping them up, in the ...
I write to express my concern about improving news reporting. I am a faithful reader of The China Post, and have once contributed an article to Eye on Taiwan. As a foreign Filipino student in Taiwan, the recent conflict between the two countries sparked by the unnecessary death of a simple fisherman affects me deeply. What saddens me more, however, is the way media has caused a lot infuriation ...
Yet whatever political problems Lerner may have escalated for the Obama administration in the scandal over IRS scrutiny of Tea Party and other conservative groups, history suggests neither she nor any other IRS official is likely to face criminal charges related to congressional testimony. Such charges are rarely filed, and convictions are even rarer. The most high-profile recent case in point ...
Thankfully, the following year, I changed location and began a second fellowship studying Chinese at National Taiwan University in Taipei. Classes were a marked change from those in Beijing, and they started at 10 a.m. This I could manage. A later start also enabled a later end of the day, and for me there was no better end than a late night on the campus of NTU. After the sun had set and the ...
Chinese President Xi Jinping met on Friday with North Korean special envoy Choe Ryong-hae, who delivered a handwritten letter from Kim Jong-un.

On the record
We must define the nature and scope of this struggle, or else it will define us. Neither I, nor any President can promise the total defeat of terror. What we must do is dismantle networks that pose a direct danger.

We also cover the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Hong Kong weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what's happening in sports, the Hong Kong Herald is for you.
Our Business Centre too is active 24 hours a day, bringing you the latest market updates from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Berlin, and New York.

Annie Au of Hong Kong won the 17th Women's Individual Asian Squash Championship by defeating Malaysian star Low Wee Wern here.
Top seed and World No.6 Wern was shocked by Annie, who is ranked No.10. It was Annie's first trip to Pakistan and she was very happy and excited by winning the title, reports Xinhua.
"I really enjoyed while staying here as the people are very hospitable and I am taking back many good memories. Before coming to Pakistan my family was very worried but now the event is over and nothing happened; all is safe," the 24-year-old said Sunday.
In the crowded Mashaf Squash Complex, Annie lost her first set at the hands of an aggressive Wern by a big margin of 5-11.
Annie's attacking and tricky shots were appreciated all-around the hall as she outclassed the Malaysian in consecutive three sets by 11-8, 11-7, 11-1 in 44 minutes to clinch the title.
Talking about the final match and difficulties she faced to reach the title, Annie said, "I concentrated a lot at the game today because we both knew the game plan and style of each other as we have faced each other many times before. It was really a tough match but after the first set I didn't give her any chance to attack me."
