    Andy Vermaut:"Le monde Akbar, l'Europe Akbar, la France Akbar, la Belgique Akbar, et Akbar pour l'Islam de la Nouvelle Lumière de Hassen Chalghoumi."

    Notre estimé Imam Hassen Chalghoumi nous met en garde contre les faux porte-étendards qui veulent semer la guerre et la division parmi nous, une histoire qui devrait être entendue dans le monde.”
    — Andy Vermaut - World Council for Public Diplomacy and Community Dialogue

    BRUXELLES, BELGIQUE, September 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- L'imam franco-tunisien Hassen Chalghoumi s'est vu remettre le premier prix symbolique au Club de la Presse Européenne-Bruxelles par Andy Vermaut et Manel Msalmi pour son dernier livre "Libérons l'Islam de l'Islamisme". Le Conseil mondial de la diplomatie publique et du diaologue communautaire, ainsi que l'Association européenne pour la défense des minorités, ont finalement décidé à l'unanimité de remettre ce premier prix à Hassen Chalghoumi, après une longue délibération. Il s'agit de la première reconnaissance importante pour son livre qui n'est pas dans les rayons depuis très longtemps, et c'est en fait aussi une grande reconnaissance du travail que M. Hassen Chalghoumi fait au quotidien pour combattre l'extrémisme au sein de l'Islam.

    Andy Vermaut a reçu la parole de Manel Msalmi pour remettre le prestigieux prix conçu par nul autre que le célèbre bruxellois Raphaël de Marcar :"Le monde Akbar, l'Europe Akbar, la France Akbar, la Belgique Akbar, et Akbar pour l'Islam de la Nouvelle Lumière que vous représentez Hassen Chalghoumi, “déclare Andy Vermaut avec passion, après quoi, tout le monde dans la salle rit, y compris Hassen Chalghoumi. Andy Vermaut a poursuivi avec un clin d'œil : "chers compatriotes, des compagnons, des frères et des sœurs, des amis qui luttent contre toute forme d'extrémisme et qui, aujourd'hui plus que jamais, reconnaissent qu'aucun terroriste ne peut être religieux, car cela est contraire à ce que toutes les philosophies spirituelles et les religions du monde représentent réellement. Il y a un homme, plus précisément l'imam Hassen Chalghoumi, qui contribue à diffuser ce message de toutes les manières possibles, un homme en un seul morceau, un homme qui met la paix et le dialogue au premier plan, même au risque de sa propre vie, car ceux qui prêchent la paix et le dialogue sont une menace pour les extrémistes qui ne font que propager une vision du monde opposée et veulent alimenter encore plus de haine de leur haine. Aujourd'hui, plus que jamais, nous réalisons que toutes les religions du monde ne parlent qu'une seule langue, la langue de la paix et de l'amour les uns pour les autres et pour nos semblables, et notre estimé Imam Hassen Chalghoumi nous met en garde contre les faux porte-étendards qui veulent semer la guerre et la division parmi nous, une histoire qui devrait être entendue dans le monde entier et dans laquelle l'Imam Hassen Chalghoumi embrasse les femmes et les enfants pour diffuser ce message dans la sagesse et au-delà, afin qu'ils puissent libérer l'Islam de toute forme d'extrémisme. Hassen Chalghoumi mérite donc le premier prix du dialogue et de la paix pour ses efforts quotidiens contre les islamistes radicaux du monde, sa lutte contre la montée de l'antisémitisme et ses félicitations pour son dévouement et sa volonté de poursuivre ce combat, même au prix de sa propre vie. Le Conseil Mondial de la Diplomatie Publique vous remet et aussi the European Association for the Defense of Minorities te donne aujourd'hui un titre de membre honoraire et notre premier prix pour le dialogue et la paix, et vous êtes immédiatement inclus dans notre jury pour l'attribution de ce prestigieux prix l'année prochaine. Merci beaucoup et surtout félicitations pour votre engagement en faveur d'un monde idéal sans extrémisme d'aucune sorte. Nous resterons toujours vos fidèles supporters.”

    La protection de la loi
    Hassen Chalghoumi est un homme de paix qui affirme avoir été motivé à poursuivre sa cause par les enseignements d'Averroès et d'autres penseurs islamiques traditionnels. Libérons l'Islam de l'Islamisme est un livre qui vise à rectifier le tir et à lutter contre la minorité d'islamistes qui se comportent en ennemis de la République française, ainsi que les radicaux qui cherchent depuis longtemps à faire des Juifs et des Arabes des boucs émissaires en France. Libérons l'Islam de l'Islamisme est un livre qui cherche à corriger le tir. Hassen Chalghoumi est convaincu que la laïcité offre une chance aux musulmans de s'épanouir en France, car elle préserve la pratique de toutes les religions et constitue la stratégie la plus efficace pour éviter la reprise des conflits religieux violents. Selon lui, les femmes sont les plus grandes transmetteuses de connaissances au sein de l'islam et le meilleur antidote aux penchants mortifères de l'islamisme. Il estime également que les femmes devraient se voir confier davantage d'autorité religieuse. Il fait allusion à l'histoire, à la culture, à l'éducation des parents, à la reconquête de l'arabe, aux réseaux sociaux, qui ne peuvent être le domaine exclusif des radicalisés. Il réaffirme le patriotisme et le nationalisme des personnes qui partagent avec lui sa patrie. Selon lui, les musulmans eux-mêmes sont les seuls à pouvoir libérer l'islam de l'influence de l'islamisme. Son livre rendra furieux les individus qui ont mis sa vie et celle de sa famille en danger, ce qui l'obligera à vivre sous la protection de la loi. Il prend une position ferme contre l'antisémitisme.

  • This Caper is Motivated to Break World Record and Raise Support for Atlantic Canada

    Extreme EHCOnomics Podcast

    Extreme EHCOnomics goes to extreme measures to tackle extreme goal

    The Cape Breton community had my back, now it is time for me to do whatever I can to give back to Cape Breton.”
    — Edward Henry
    TORONTO, CANADA, September 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Extreme is what it takes for people to take notice. That is why the 1st episode of Edward Henry’s podcast Extreme EHCOnomics on October 26, 2022, starting at 6:00 AM EST. is going extreme when we attempt to break the world record for the longest continuous live video podcast for 36 hours, and the audio podcast of 53 hours to fundraise for communities in Atlantic Canada that have been affected by the aftermath Hurricane Fiona.

    Edward Henry who lives in Oshawa Ontario and operates Edward Henry Company and EHCOnomics Inc. from Whitby Ontario is from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. This is all about giving back and doing what we can like so many good people have already started to do. The difference is that many of those people are at ground zero doing the real work says “Edward”.

    Extreme EHCOnomics will cover a variety of sales, marketing, and motivational topics. This 1st episode will stay on its core subject matter, but we will be highlighting some amazing community champions that are doing some amazing things to help one of the hardest working, honest, and proud people in the world says “Edward”. We will be relying on several expert guests, and community leaders to bring this event together.

    An initial goal is to raise $250,000, but we are motivated to move far past that goal for an important cause. Edward Henry Company has teamed up with Non-Profit Groups ComeUnity Outreach of Durham and ABLE United to help with the event. Robina Brah from ComeUnity has been appointed to administer the funds raised and donate to the appropriate communities throughout Atlantic Canada that have been affected.

  • International Coercive Control Conference Seeks to Address Root Causes of Violence Against Women Across the Globe

    Experts gather to share knowledge, resources, and strategies to make Coercive Control visible and understood

    NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For the second year, experts, advocates and activists will gather to address the global crisis facing women in its most invisible and unrecognizable form– coercive control. This year’s theme, Coercive Control: Oppression in Our Public and Private Spheres, seeks to connect the dots between the root cause of coercive control male entitlement to have power over in a gender unequal world, and the countless ways in which this entitlement shows up in our most intimate and personal relationships and spaces, and when it manifests in our public spaces.

    The landmark Supreme Court decision that came out earlier this summer, Dobbs v. Jackson, held that women don’t have a constitutional right to an abortion. Right now in Iran, women are tearing off their hijabs and cutting their hair, protesting the murder of Mahsa Amini for wearing her headscarf too loosely, by so-called “morality police”. Security forces are currently killing an unknown number of protestors in the streets across Iran. In China, “Rice bunny” is the homophonic translation of the words “me” and “too” in Mandarin, a euphemism that feminists fighting sexual harrassment in China adopted in order to avoid government detection and censorship.

    These examples, while varying in scale, severity, and impact, are manifestations of coercive control and the myriad ways in which it is exercised, whether privately, publicly , overtly or covertly, or through government or religious sanction. In short, these are ways in which male entitlement to have power over, is rooted in, reinforced by and maintained - by gender inequality. ICCC sessions on “Reproductive Rights: Coercive Control of Her Body,” “Violence Against Women As a Hate Crime,” and “Coercive Control in a #metoo Context” are just a few of the conversations at this year’s ICCC about how we might better identify coercive control, confront it, and end it.

    For a complete list of speakers and sessions and to register for the conference, visit: https://theccc.international.

    About The International Coercive Control Conference
    The conference is a first step towards bringing together those working on the front lines advocating for change, modernizing legislation, conducting cutting-edge research, and changing the narrative to make visible the patriarchal nature of abuse and coercive control.

    About the Engendered Collective
    The Engendered Collective is a community of survivors, advocates, and feminists that engage in knowledge-building, collective care, healing, and advocacy to increase accountability for sex-based abuse, exploitation, and violence.

  • OGarra's first book of short stories, "Mano Po," Is now also available for purchase

    Today, Western Forces Invading Algerian Sahara, Stopped by Thousands of Mounted Tribespeople: OGarra's Book. "Malak."”
    — Paul O'Garra
    FUENGIROLA, MáLAGA, ESPAñA, September 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The book, “Malak desert child.” is a stunning evocation of North Africa and its encounter with Western civilisation seen through the relationship between Pete, fleeing to Morocco to escape his mental demons by seeking solace in a pre-modern world, and a family who in escaping from their violent, drunken father to the Algerian Sahara, experience other problems and persecution. The rich valleys and deserts of Morocco and Algeria, are given depth by insight into the immediate history of the area and two upheavals, a rebellion and a revolution. OGarra brings an unusual sympathy and insight into this largely unknown world, the southern 'Other' of Western civilisation, and through his familiarity and insight probes and brings out our common humanity in this tale of struggle and adventure. Albeit in the company of a courageous girl-child, her family and her newly acquired band of personages who seek only to save her from her own valour which finds her time and again plunging headfirst into the abyss.

    Malak desert child is the second book in the continuing story of Masuhun (Moon) and his friends, and deals with how they tried to help Malak, a pupil at the local school, and her family, and finished up being pursued by desert armies in the Sahara desert…………………………. Malak is a beautiful five-year-old girl child. She lives in a cave in dire poverty with her drunkard father and her Saharoui mother and sister. Her enemies are all the towns children who victimize her and her sister because of their race and condition. Her only friend is a single mother named Latifa, and Malak´s grandmother Jeeda Hazzah who dies of cancer. But Malak is the champion of her family against a violent father and the children of the Zoco who she fights singlehandedly. This is a magical and often mystical story of a young girl and the people she stumbles upon, as she is rushed away by her uncertain destiny, to the land in which her mother was born, the Sahara Desert. The unravelling of Malak's story is also the unsnarling of the web of intrigue surrounding the North of Africa, and it´s peoples and history, and the reasons for many current dilemmas in this land of witchcraft and mystery.

    The tale begins in earnest when a wandering ex-warrior happens on the child and is struck by her magnificent courage and beauty. After a significant episode with her drunken father and his cronies, having interceded on the family´s behalf, he flees with them on a stolen high-speed cruiser heading for Western Sahara and freedom.In the course of their errant journey, they are taken into threatening custody by the Algerian police. The day is saved by the intervention of an old friend of the warrior´s. The friend, a powerful Algerian Warlord, falls under the spell of the feisty child and seems to want to help them although Malak and her mother see in him a very enigmatic and untrustworthy character. Malak´s personality and mystic nature make of her the flux in an adventure which begins as a race to return her to her maternal grandfather´s family. Things start to escalate as her father reports the family as kidnapped and his country uses it as an excuse to intervene militarily.What begins as a flight of mercy will become a race against time as Malak and her friends take on the impossible to try and avoid a military invasion of the whole region by the allied forces of half of the civilised world. In this, they enlist the help of hundreds of thousands of tribespeople. Some tribes known to all and others lost in the wastes of the mysterious desert.

    OGarra's first book of short stories, "Mano Po," Is now also available for purchase.

  • Poor Information Governance is Cause of Federal Document Leaks and Missing Secret Service Texts, Expert Claims

    Robert Smallwood, Managng Director, Institute for IG

    The leaks of classified documents from the White House, and 'missing' Secret Service text messages, are due to poor Information Governance practices.

    Misplacing, losing, or stealing classified documents would not be possible with proper Information Governance practices in place.”
    — Robert Smallwood, Managing Director, Institute for IG

    SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, September 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The leaks and alleged misappropriation of classified documents from the U.S. federal government, as well as the claim that Secret service text messages surrounding the January 6 uprising in Washington D.C. went missing, are the result of poor information Governance (IG) practices, claims Robert Smallwood, Managing Director of the Institute for Information Governance. Smallwood, a leading expert on IG, is the author of, "Information Governance: Concept, Strategies and Best Practices, 2nd Edition" (Wiley, 2020) and seven more books on IG topics. He stated, "With good Information Governance, all documents and records are tracked and controlled, and there is a 100% audit trail of who accessed which documents, and when. And that includes printing out hard copies. Misplacing, losing, or stealing classified documents would not be possible with proper Information Governance practices in place."

    Information Governance, or IG, is an emerging discipline that takes a holistic approach to governing information. IG includes aspects of records management, cybersecurity, privacy, data governance, eDiscovery and FOIA, and more. The goal of IG programs is to minimize information risks and costs, while maximizing information value. "In short, IG is security, control, and optimization of information," Smallwood stated.

    IG first entered the mainstream in the 2000-2001 time frame, when the UK National Health Service (NHS) started requiring IG training for all staff who handled patient clinical information. It has now matured and become a more formal discipline, with the advent of ISO 24143: 2022, the new standard for IG, established in May, 2022. That new standard emphasizes information risk mitigation.

    "Also, the idea that those Secret Service texts just were 'wiped away' when cell phones were changed or a new system was put in place, is a complete falsehood. Those messages are still around - on a server, on backup tapes - or, heck, doesn't the NSA keep all those messages?" Smallwood asked.

    Information Governance may be one of the most crucial issues of our time. Poor IG processes and practices are what led to the ability to misplace or even steal highly classified documents. It is also the cause of the Supreme Court brief leak.

    Smallwood is the host of the podcast, "IG Talk w/ Robert Smallwood," and is Chair of InfoGov World Conference 2022, an educational event, which will take place virtually on the 29th and 30th of September, from 7:00am to 5:00pm EST (12 Noon to 10pm London Time). The Trans-Atlantic conference targets all privacy, security, eDiscovery, and Information Governance (IG) professionals, across industries. This virtual event will have over 80 expert speakers from the cross-functional IG discipline. InfoGov World 2022 will be held in a unique immersive 3D virtual reality environment. Interested participants can register for the event at no cost here: https://infogovworldconference.vfairs.com/ There are also conference session passes and press passes available.


    About InfoGov World

    InfoGov World is a media services company that unifies the Information Governance (IG) community with a common voice. It provides a suite of educational and marketing services including digital advertising, surveys, White papers, webinars, and podcasts for corporate messaging to members of the IG community. https://infogovworldconference.com/

  • THE SIGNIFICANCE OF POLITICS

    For All Eyes Only

    Author Bunny Herschensohn shares her sentiments about politics in her book, For All Eyes Only.

    YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- History will define our nation of today. But to better understand how we got here, people should examine and study the past for red flags that were not caught and rejected…at the time.

    “FOR ALL EYES ONLY” is a compilation of blogs written by Author Bunny Herschensohn during former President Barack Obama’s Presidency. It is through these blogs there appears to be a remarkable unparalleled similarity between the differential political turbulence we face today and the systemic agenda that was aggressively pursuant during the Obama years.

    Hence, readers interested in political strategies will find this book intriguing with every page turned as Herschensohn explains in detail how politics and political ideology works. Author Bunny Herschensohn takes us down memory lane with reflections of her thoughts and observations on past issues. Those troubles of the past have forever normalized radical, life-changing reforms to our system through subtle ruse but underhanded intent.

    Queen Elizabeth II gold commemorative product buyers mailing list

    Queen Elizabeth II gear buyers mailing list

    Queen Elizabeth II stamp collectors mailing list

    Queen Elizabeth II collectable plate buyers mailing list

    Buying & selling Queen Elizabeth's commemorative products is a business opportunity for the right products and services.

    LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing is a company focused on enhancing the growth of businesses and charities with their sales or donation milestones. For groups that set their sights on working with other companies, many business postal mailing lists are available for different markets. The databases have all the pertinent details, like phone numbers, names, and corporate titles of the most relevant decision-makers for these high-volume transactions.

    Then there are those organizations with a preference for targeting the general public. These groups can benefit from the diverse array of consumer postal mailing lists that are available. The listings can be divided across both geographic and demographic marketing metrics. Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing wants to help any business or charity reach its B2B or retail consumer marketing ambitions.

    How Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing Got Its Start
    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has its roots in the ambitions of a disabled veteran. Once the responsibilities and duties of military service had been completed, it was decided to try a different direction. That direction, rather than defense, would focus on economic growth. This would be achieved by helping businesses or charities increase their outreach goals. A start-up was created in response to this, and today, the company proudly maintains staff with over 50 years of industry experience in the marketing sector.

    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing dove into the business world when paradigms shifted. The established media strategies like television and print advertising continued their dominance, but digital marketing entered the field. It was already making disruptions that industry experts expected to grow. The company put its efforts into direct mail, a good choice that unintentionally created crucial skill sets in data acquisition, management, and analytics. Then digital marketing took faster than anticipated, but few had the expertise to capitalize on it, despite the growing demand. The company integrated and offered digital marketing services, enjoying its early mover advantage and significant gains for its clients.

    Fast forward to today, and Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has moved far past its starting service range of only the hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. The rest of the United States is now covered, including Alaska and Hawaii. All of North America is also served, with listings for various markets in Canada and Mexico. And for companies or charities wanting international coverage, it’s possible to cross the Atlantic and use lists that access European Union markets like France.

    Royalty Continues To Fascinate North Americans
    Although American history is rooted in a rebellion against a ruling monarchy, the idea of a royal family with princes, princesses, kings, and queens continues to maintain a high point of interest for Americans. Queen Elizabeth, in particular, has continued a long, memorable rein.

    As a result, generations of Americans, from baby boomers to today’s millennials, still maintain an awareness of the queen of England. Some go so far as to enhance that interest by purchasing memorabilia and other commemorative products that celebrate the historically long rule of one of the world’s best-known monarchs.

    A Marketing Opportunity
    People who buy Queen Elizabeth commemorative souvenirs distinguish themselves from other Americans with unique purchasing characteristics. Those that actively collected Queen Elizabeth’s commemorative memorabilia are defining themselves as people with interest in the United Kingdom’s royal family. That interest often extends to other royals, both living and deceased, such as Princess Diana or her children, Prince Harry and Prince William.

    This type of interest can also extend to a general “anglophile” interest in England, creating a new market for many products and services. Travel to England, for example, is one area where Queen Elizabeth enthusiasts will show a higher interest than the average American. The same is true for British-based products such as food, fashion, and clothing.

    Many products and services can be marketed to this demographic with the right approach.

    Reaching The Queen Elizabeth Commemorative Buyers
    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has databases for Queen Elizabeth commemorative buyers all over the United States. The databases have the size and breadth to serve national marketing strategies but have the organizational tools to narrow down to regional approaches like the Great Lakes region. Market targeting can be even more precise, such as in a single state, like Illinois. Even single neighborhoods in a town or a city are possible, such as targeting Queen Elizabeth commemorative buyers in Lincoln Park, Chicago.

    It’s also possible to break the databases down by specific demographic requirements. Queen Elizabeth commemorative buyers can be targeted by ethnicities, such as targeting British-Americans, or religious affiliations, such as only Protestant buyers. Financial categories can be requested, targeting mainly high-net-worth Queen Elizabeth commemorative buyers.

    Contact details are available in whatever formats are needed. Direct mail campaigns will get physical mailing addresses for homes or businesses. Email addresses are provided for digital marketing campaigns. Home and business phone numbers will be provided for telemarketing-based plans. And for text/SMS-based marketing plans, cellular phone numbers can be given.

    For clients with an interest in overseeing their direct mail campaign, turnkey direct mail solutions are available for those that lack experience and want guidance. The service carefully shepherds clients through the entire direct mail process, from planning to printing and distribution with the desired databases. Everything here happens under one roof, eliminating the usual need to source and vet the different vendors for each stage of the process.

    If you want to market to Queen Elizabeth commemorative buyers throughout the USA, contact Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing. When you work with us, you support an American company owned and operated by a disabled veteran.

  • Andy Vermaut:"Many Chinese Belt & Road Initiative projects fall too heavily on the debt of underdeveloped countries"

    The term 'debt-trap diplomacy' refers to an international financial relationship in which a creditor country or organization advances debt to a borrowing nation in order to boost the lender's political influence, in whole or in part.

    The term 'debt-trap diplomacy' refers to an international financial relationship in which a creditor country or organization advances debt to a borrowing nation in order to boost the lender's political influence, in whole or in part.

    Andy Vermaut:"Sri Lanka must lease their port of Hambanthota to China for 99 years. This is a China Debt Trap."

    I became persuaded after three months that the myth was not the China Debt Trap, but the myth of the China Debt Trap being a myth.”
    — Andy Vermaut

    BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, September 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- On Thursday, September 8, 2022, Andy Vermaut of the World Council for Public Diplomacy & Community Dialogue & the fundamental rights movement Postversa and Manel Msalmi, head of the European Association for the Defense of Minorities, together with David Vander Maelen, were holding a symposium titled China Debt Trap in the Brussels press club. China Trap for Debt? What's up? Debt Trap Diplomacy" refers to an international financial relationship in which a creditor nation or organization transfers debt to a borrowing nation in order to strengthen the lender's political clout. It is argued that a creditor nation extends excessive loan to a debtor country in order to coerce economic or political concessions when the debtor country is unable to satisfy its repayment commitments. Frequently, the terms of the loans are not made public. The conference included notable speakers, and it was attended by a large number of people. Monica Andrei (International Programme Manager working for the European Commission), Paulo Casaca - Democratic Forum for South Asia, former EP, Manel Msalmi (EP Mena Affairs and European Association for the Defense of Minorities, President MR Women Brussels), David Vander Maelen - Hiking for Children, Tibet Support Group Belgium, Sid Lukkassen, Author and political philosopher, Eliyar Jan Tursun, Independent Human Rights Activist, and Razvan Hoinaru, policy consultant and former IFRS Permanent Representative.

    Correct from the beginning
    Andy Vermaut states, "Today, you can read everywhere that the China Debt Trap is a hoax, a fabrication of those who want to portray China in a negative light. Or is it just Western propaganda? First and foremost, I would want to express my love for all individuals who have fallen into the trap of rejecting the China Debt Trap, since this is the falsehood that is now being propagated worldwide under pressure from the Chinese propaganda machine. However, I wish them all love, but it is intellectually dishonest to deny the existence of anything. I understand everything, though. Oftentimes, many intellectuals and academics are blind, willing to go to any lengths to get the conclusion they want, and have also invented a great number of plausible tales designed to make you question. Nonetheless, with Sri Lanka's bankruptcy, a new consensus has arisen among the very people who are now seeing in reality the chaos that the China Debt Trap has produced on the socio-economic front; this has also affected the Sri Lankan people's basic fundamental and human rights. They need us to reveal the profound truth about the China Debt Trap. Then it turns out that I concur with former U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, his replacement Mike Pompeo, and Mr. Peter Navarro, the U.S. director of office of trade and manufacturing. They were correct from the beginning, and the effects of the China Debt Trap have been etched repeatedly into our retinas. The whole world is aware that Sri Lanka has declared bankruptcy."

    Myth?
    Andy Vermaut says, "The situation of Sri Lanka is raising a new global worry as a result of China's global lending to underdeveloped nations. This is a very serious and timely problem. Clearly, the debt that developing nations owe China is a significant issue. Many Belt & Road Initiative projects fall too heavily on the debt of underdeveloped countries, and many of these nations are unable to fulfill their debts. Thus, this is an actual issue. Sri Lanka has awoken the global community to this problem. The notion that China is accumulating debt with weaker nations in order to gain power over them and acquire both private and public assets is a very sophisticated strategy to completely rule the globe. I believe that this narrative has come true. This is also a significant concern in Africa today. There are significant issues in Zambia, Djibouti, and Kenya in a variety of locations. And I believe that part of the difficulty is that many people are unclear about the Chinese government's goals, in part because the Chinese have not spoken up. Therefore, I believed we should attempt to go a little more into this topic of guilt, without ignoring the subject of myth. After diverting and examining every stone in this respect for four months in preparation for this conference, I became persuaded after three months that the myth was not the China Debt Trap, but the myth of the China Debt Trap being a myth; consequently, I pretentiously titled this conference "China Debt Trap."

    Sri Lanka has shaken the world awake
    Andy Vermaut:”Relations between China and Sri Lanka, with an emphasis on economic growth, are at an all-time low.Sri Lanka must now lease the famed port of Hambanthota for 99 years in order to utilize it. This is the ultimate evidence of the China Debt Trap, since several generations are getting sucked into it. This is the instance that I intended to investigate more. The transfer of the port of Hambanthota to China is an unsustainable Chinese infrastructure transaction, in my opinion. Under pressure from China, the Sri Lankan government signed an agreement to give over the port for 99 years since the debt had grown too costly and the government could not afford to repay it. This is the evidence that many pro-China think groups would prefer not to consider. The Sri Lankan government was unable to pay the approximate 6.3 percent commercial interest rate. There is a certain mode of operation used by Chinese loan providers that is especially tempting to politicians who do not plan beyond their single time in government. For instance, each loan had a grace period of around five years. After 5 years, payments must be paid, but Sri Lanka was unable to do so. As a result, Sri Lanka has lost a crown gem to China and must now lease its own port from China for 99 years. This is evidence that the China Debt Trap exists. Sri Lanka could no longer meet its financial commitments; as a result, it must lease its own port from China for many generations, so forfeiting a portion of its sovereignty. This was a tremendously awful choice for Sri Lanka, but certainly a great one for China. The cooperation approach with China is a worse business choice. There was no way out for a poor nation such as Sri Lanka, whose per capita debt was around €2100 at the time, and where almost all government revenue is spent on debt payment. There were no other choices, so the Chinese tiger seized the opportunity to wage a 99-year battle of attrition against Sri Lanka. It is unacceptable that this agreement was ever formed. Obviously, a large portion of this is also attributable to the country's entire debt portfolio, but the Chinese bankers laughed gleefully and truly got the prize with this agreement, and Sri Lanka is now permanently in the grip of Chinese lenders. Therefore, the notion that the Chinese use debt to obtain strategic assets or influence is not unfounded. Unfortunately, nations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America continue to make similar judgments and are overwhelmed with Chinese debt; governments frequently have limited alternatives, particularly in places where there has been violence. Certainly, there are politicians who like cutting ribbons in advance of elections and make decisions based on short-term benefit, which is terrible decision making. Specifically for this reason, the World Bank and other development and financial organizations have, throughout time, included essential governance checks and procedures. China's project selection procedure is extremely political, but also involves meticulous economic considerations.In several instances of these failed transactions, Chinese players have assumed control. Since 2013, when the Belt Road Initiative was launched, an increasing number of nations have relied on Chinese financing for real estate development and infrastructure projects. "

    The Chinese are aware of their actions
    "The Chinese are not incompetent," Andy Vermaut continues. "They are well aware of their actions and their actions. Many of those who assert that the China Debt Trap is a fiction just assert that the Chinese do not know what they are doing or that the Chinese in the largely managed economy do not have a plan, that they are oblivious of the debt trap they are constructing for themselves. Those who believe in fairy tales will undoubtedly find this to be true."

    It is not a matter of China's miscalculations
    Andy Vermaut: "I think that the Chinese administration understands precisely what it is doing and also implements the Belt & Road Initiative's many initiatives in a well-planned manner. China is completely rational. They examine all cultures, nations, backgrounds, and histories of the nations with whom they do such financial transactions. China's expertise as the world's top lender is extraordinary. As a result, it is not a matter of China's miscalculations, as their ultimate purpose is to increase their strength, not to make mistakes. Many so-called investments are really loans whose repayment is not required until after five years. At this point, the shoe pinches. Sri Lanka is an excellent illustration of this. The nature of Chinese finance, which exacerbates structural and institutional inefficiencies in developing nations, is the true source of the issue. Sri Lanka is a post-conflict middle-income nation, and many aspects of infrastructure funding and development work against it, while China benefits. China is fully aware that, for instance, Sri Lanka lacks an independent technology management body. Currently, Sri Lanka has no framework for establishing infrastructure priorities. And I believe that Chinese sponsorship or China's mistake exacerbates these problems further and adds to Sri Lanka's sovereignty being undermined in particular. The Chinese risk assessment is predicated on a political evaluation and risk analysis, which does not take into consideration the carrying capacity of the nation to whom they are lending."

    Economic and military concessions
    Sid Lukkassen says:”Complete laissez-faire liberalism cannot resist the aforementioned Chinese strategy. What do we do with our money, once other states decide to feel their people first? The information economy is a high risk in the long run. A wiser Europe should invest in industrial production capacity, and would equip itself to develop new resources by manipulating elementary particles. The US and China are one step ahead of Europe. They understand that currencies are but pieces on a game board of strategy and that money is worthless if it cannot be turned into tangible products. Information by itself cannot bring wealth to a people – access to resources must be secure at all times. China can now spread its centralistic and authoritative model. Chinese authoritarianism isn’t just a rebellion against democratization: China acts in accordance with its millennia-old tradition of centralism that united the country around a single center of power. The nation possesses the capabilities of a high-tech totalitarianism. In 2022 it is more simple than ever to influence the thinking and acting of a potentially dissident populace. Through the system of Sesame Credit, the Chinese government is able to award good behavior points to its citizens, for actions such as posting positive messages about the government on social media, or for buying local agricultural products. Aside from modern gadgets, and the rise of Communism in the twentieth century, this new China is thus a continuation of the centralism of the ancient Chinese empire. This is best known through its so-called ‘development assistance program’. Reality demonstrates that China will eventually pick up the bill, but always at the price of strategic economical and military concessions. An example of this is Sri Lanka, where an enormous harbor was built and financed by Chinese loans. The Sri Lankan government could not meet its payment obligations, forcing it to pawn the port to China until 2116. This means that China gained a geopolitical base in the heart of the Indian Ocean. Fitting in with this is the Belt and Road Initiative. China invests seven trillion dollars in building a network of transportation and energy connections across 64 countries. How many of these deals will eventually turn out to be ‘Sri Lankan ports’? Also in Europe, China wishes to deploy its geopolitical soft power. China has a long-standing tradition in which enterprise and state power are intertwined. But that is not the most far-reaching consequence for the peoples of Europe. Whoever controls the flow of capital also influences geopolitics. Whoever controls geopolitics, influences culture.“

    China wriggles its way
    “China’s authoritarianism surfaces as a legitimate alternative for the free, democratic society that the West promotes as the only justified model for statecraft. Big Western tech firms are willing to share their futuristic technology with China in exchange for access to the enormous Chinese market, where they are then allowed to operate with the privileges of state companies. This can have dire consequences. The West is currently in a philosophical crisis – I mean a crisis of morals, identity and democratic political sovereignty in the face of immigration, tribalism and globalism. This moat can make authoritarianism inspired by China even more attractive. What do we do when even liberal elites turn towards authoritarianism in the name of progressive beliefs? The negative consequences of globalism – such as immigration and the outsourcing of jobs – makes many Europeans and Americans highly critical of the Hosanna-liberalism that seemed unchallengeable in the nineties. The left, meanwhile, relapses into identity politics. Polarization in the West undermines the legitimacy of liberal democracy. China can benefit from this in many ways. We must conclude that China is an impressively successful, but threatening, power to the West. Not only economically – as the EU seems to think – but also geopolitically and culturally. And the only answer that EU-politicians offer to fighting this threat is the tried but worn out call for ‘an ever closer Union’. But even if this could unite Europe and strengthen liberal democracy philosophically, which remains to be seen considering the unpopularity of a far-reaching European merger of nations, it remains unclear whether that will be enough. Europeans will have to fight harder for their economic interests on the world stage. Everything depends on this: freedom, stability and the influence Europeans can wield. Where major undemocratic countries as China are concerned, this has to be specifically taken into consideration. It is naive to think that democratic nations can merrily continue as usual, whilst the second largest world economy behaves as a player that hardly follows the rules. For example, when Covid19 broke out, the Chinese government covered it up, then bought up medical equipment on the world market, and only took international accountability once the corona virus had already spread globally. China wriggles its way into the vital parts of the European economy. If one day the havoc in Western Europe is great enough, we will beg the Chinese to clean up our mess – inaugurating them as our new rulers. We may lose all our freedoms. and everything that makes Europe Europe, but by then this will seem like a good deal to us,” said Sid Lukkassen.
