Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*EZ NEWS AUGUST 27, 2019 ---- E*Tai-Ex opening The Tai-Ex opened up 31-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 10,386 on turnover of 1-billion N-T. The market fell under heavy pressure Monday from US and China both raising tariffs on each other's goods (產品). There was a lot of selling in large cap stocks, especially in the bellwether electronics sector. That sector led a lot of other stocks to fall lower, a pushed the market overall lower as well. ---- E*Premier Touts US Arms Sales Premier Su Tseng-chang says Taiwan buying F-16V fighter jets is a "breakthrough" and "crucial (關鍵)" to the island being able to defend itself. This comes after comments by U-S Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Esper told Fox News he expects arms sales to Taiwan to continue. He says the US Congress has been notified of the F-16 sale, and this shows that the government plans to continue selling weapons and defense equipment to Taiwan. Defense officials here in Taiwan say the F-16 deal could be signed before the end of this year, because it seems like most of the US Congress agrees with the deal (交易、合約). A special budget for buying the 66 fighter jets plus spare engines and other equipment has been sent to the Cabinet for review. ---- E*Foreign Visitor Arrivals Up 13% The Tourism Bureau says people from other countries made more than 6.96 million visits to Taiwan from January to July this year. That's up 12.9-per cent from the same period of last year. The bureau says visitors from China increased by 30-per cent, more than any other market. Visitors from South Korea went up 10-percent. Those from Japan climbed 8.8-per cent and travelers from Hong Kong and Macau climbed 7.4-percent combined (結合). And visitors from countries under the New Southbound Policy went up 4.3 percent. ---- E*G7 Leaders Pledge Aid for Amazon The Group of Seven countries are promising tens of millions of dollars to help fight wildfires in the Amazon and protect the rainforest. The promise was made at a G-7 meeting in France. The group will set aside (撥) $20 million. Britain will also add $12 million and Canada will add $11 million. Ottawa has also offered (提供) to send firefighting planes to Brazil. It was not clear how the new money would be handled and spent. Brazil's environment minister says the country's government should decide how to use the money. ---- E*Australia Concerned Over Writer Arrest in China Australia says it is ``very concerned and disappointed'' that a Chinese Australian writer has been arrested in China on suspicion of espionage (間諜). Yang Heng-jun has been held in jail by China since January 19th, when he traveled to Guangzhou from New York. Australian officials say China formally arrested Yang on Friday last week, and have said he will continue to be "criminally detained (被拘留)". The officials say Yang has been held in Beijing in "harsh conditions" without a formal charge for more than seven months. They say China had not explained why they are holding him. ---- E*US Johnson and Johnson to Pay for Opioid Trial A judge in Oklahoma found Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiaries (子公司) was part of the cause of the state's opioid drug crisis.
