Q: Is this developing into an anti-foreigner campaign? More foreign firms targetted.

Not satisfied with probing one industry at a time, China's powerful price regulator could target the petroleum,  telecommunications, banking and auto sectors next in its investigations into violations of the country's anti-trust laws. The main targets appear to be foreign companies.

The same regulator, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), is already targetting foreign jewellers, milk producers, drug companies and car manufacturers.

 

China previously targetted individual companies such as Apple, McDonalds and KFC, but is now taking on whole sectors of industry.

 

Is this now a nationalistic anti-foreigner campaign?

some of these diehards dont like giving up the golden goose, controlling the economy, so they  are grasping at whatever perceived power they think they still have, but consumers vote with their wallet, and china be damned, one day they will learn this lesson but its like driving a hammer through concrete, they will fight it all the way to the dust they will become.

They should really look into the "benches for bus-stations" market, it is the same bloody seats in all of the country, there must be a monopoly there. Of course it is a local manufacturer so no one will care.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
