Tax free means what ? Edited 19.08.15 - CHINA TOURISTS SMUGGLING LUXURY GOODS FROM EUROPE INTO CHINA

Being back from Europe - watching following at a DUTY FREE (Global Blue) counter:
Guy to the left got refunded EURO 1,700 - Lady in front of me got refunded EURO 4,700 - that means she has spent EURO 32,000 - nice trip - precious items bought.

So how can she import this into China ?

32,000 EURO equals to RMB 226,000.00 - how & when did that person earn it ?

With a now average annual salary of RMB 56,339.00 - how did she do it ? Spending more than 4 years salary on one trip ? And that woman was looking very humble dressed - rather shabby.
Did she save that much over how many years ? Or did she do "something else" ?

China customs regulation says following:
 3a. Residents: articles brought from overseas:
- residents: max. value of CNY 5,000.-.
- non-residents: max. value of CNY 2,000.- for articles remaining in China (People's Rep.).  


Just wonder if that lady declared that goods once she entered the mainland - because she is 45 times over the allowed limit - or does she have some "friends" at the customs ?

The guy next to her cashed in EURO 1,700 tax refund - that was EURO 12,000 spent on his trip equals to RMB 85,000.00 - surely the man was hard saving over the years - or do you think anything else where that money is coming from ?

Something from THE UNDERGRAD

Copied this from the SCMP - interesting article. Revolution in Hong Kong !

Read here:

Hong Kong University student magazine Undergrad talks of revolution, weeks after chief executive's criticism

Publication criticised by CY runs article urging city to revolt or face 'destruction'

We recommend CY Leung to step down
A university student publication that was criticised by the chief executive for discussing Hong Kong independence remains defiant in its latest issue, which publishes an article that talks about "revolution" against the Communist Party.
In a pseudonymous article on Friday, a writer for the University of Hong Kong student publication Undergrad said that after the non-violent Occupy Central protest failed to bring about changes, Hongkongers, facing "destruction", should think about a revolution to defend the city's autonomy.
"The Chinese Communist Party wants to destroy the consciousness of Hongkongers. One country, two systems is dying," the writer, whose pen name read as "Leung Sun-yeung"- similar to the name of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying - said.
"Hongkongers have nowhere to turn - either they fight the war and start a revolution, or they succumb themselves and be enslaved to the regime."
The article did not elaborate on how a revolution should be organised.
Yuen Yuen-lung, editor-in-chief of Undergrad, said the article was submitted to the editorial board before Leung attacked the publication in his policy address two weeks ago.
"It was only an individual student's idea. It does not represent the editorial board's view," Yuen said.
He said the board had reviewed the article carefully and decided it was acceptable for print, and he was not worried about further comments from Leung.
The board clarified its stance in its editorial, however. It said that the magazine was only engaging in a debate on whether Hong Kong should be independent, rather than taking actions to make the city split from China.
"To equate 'discussing independence' to 'taking steps to push for independence' is a fallacy," the editorial said.
It also criticised the chief executive for stirring up an attack on students that resembled the Cultural Revolution.
Pro-Beijing lawmaker Christopher Chung Shu-kun said the article that discussed revolution was like "science fiction". He said: "The Undergrad often publishes articles that imagine Hongkongers to be a tribe. It's illogical."
Democrat James To Kun-sun said he did not agree with what the article said but "we must defend the freedom of speech as long as no law is broken".

Government likes to make nice videos - spending a lot of money........

for example to show "happy" HKG people waiting for real democracy...........The reality is slightly different. Never we have seen so much poor & misery on the streets in HKG. Never we have seen so many mainlanders on the streets in HKG: Behaving bad, spitting, pushing, noisy. Yes, we know they bring a lot of money into the retail business & into the tourism sector. But the price is high.

Enjoy here one of the latest videos from HKG SAR government just related to CY Leungs policy address - it is just advertising:



And here a "masterpiece" called SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY - enjoy:



HAVE A NICE WEEKEND !
