Japan to resume comme上海419论坛nting amid criticism

Japan will resume commercial whaling Monday amid criticism from anti-whaling states a

上海419论坛nd environmental groups after the country withdrew from the International Whaling Commission (IWC) on Sunday.

Japan’s withdrawal from the IWC is the first time in its postwar history that it has withdrawn from a major international organization. Japan has lobbied for the resumption of commercial whaling for 30 years.上海419论坛

Last September, the IWC’s annual meeting rejected Japan’s latest proposal to resume commercial whaling. The Japanese government had threatened to withdraw from the international organization.

Japan announced its intention to withdraw last December, saying it was no longer possible to resume commercial whaling under IWC rules.

Several whaling ships are ready to leave the western port city of Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, on Monday to start whali上海419论坛

ng in the Pacific. And in the northern city of Kushiro, Hokkaido Prefecture, five vessels plan to leave for whaling in nearby waters.

Japan says it will conduct commercial whaling only in its territorial waters and exclusive ec

上海419论坛女神会所onomic zones, hunting minke and other species that have large enough numbers, within quotas set by the IWC-adopted method.

Environmental activists are criticizing the resumption in light of resource conservation and animal protection.

ecial Administrative Region government wants to promote innovation and technology.

It has invested more than HK$100 billion ($12.8 billion) in innovation and technology, Cheung said.

上海419论坛女神会所Apart from offering hands-on experiences with gadgets, the gala features mu

sic concerts, trendy culture, a food festival and a special area for young people to showcase their creative ideas.

The fiesta, which started on Saturday, had attracted more than 60,000 visitors up to Sunday afternoon. It was one of som

e 360 celebrations held by the Hong Kong Celebrations Association, which is made up of 40 social groups from various sectors.上海419论坛女神会所

The association estimated that more than 300,000 Hong Kong people would take part in them.

Brave Chan Yung, the association’s acting executive chairman, said t

he festival aims to build a technology-friendly environment in Hong Kong, boost the cit上海419论坛女神会所

y’s science and technology development and provide a broad platform for Hong Kong youngsters.

People of all ages were seen snaking through the venue, event by event and booth by booth, to

try out advanced high-tech products featuring virtual reality, 5G telecommunications and artificial intelligence.

Hong Kong resident Tsang Ka-hei, 22, was amazed by a mind-co

ntrolled robot invented by Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre.

Tsang, who had a go at controlling the robot, was awed by the advanced product and

said he enjoyed the experience, adding that he had never seen such a device before.

In addition to the high-tech exhibition and food booths, music concerts by inter

national and local pop singers are also being staged in the park every night during the festival.
