igation Bureau上海千花坊女神会所 said, some Chinese have colluded with their foreign accompl

ices to cheat foreign women in their 20s and 30s in the name of travel, good jobs and marriage.

ring and case investigation cooperation with their counterparts from the five count

ries to smash cross–border human trafficking criminal gangs and help the women victims return to their countries.

Habib said relations with China have also benefited Boeing, another major company in Washington.

“There’s no question that China is the most significant destinati

on for aerospace,” said Habib, as China “has the biggest middle class and it’s growing. Alon

g with that comes a tremendous increase in demand for both passenger travel and freight mobility.”

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agricultural products

such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

By late April, China had been hit by 129 African swin

fever outbreaks, affecting all 31 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions on the mainland, since the country’s first reported outb

reak in Shenyang, Liaoning province, in August, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

This resulted in more than 1 million pigs being slaughtered to prevent and control the disease, which is deadly to pigs but does no

t affect people. The ministry has called for intensified research and development to expedite the availability of v

accines for disease prevention and control, but admitted difficulties due to the complex nature of the virus.

China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of pork, with an a

nnual production of 700 million pigs. Pork accounts for 62 percent of meat con

sumption in China, and sustained outbreaks of African swine fever will cause devastating consequences to the pi

g industry and endanger China’s food security, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences said.
