Remember H. Are the intelligence corporation of Chinese espionage.

Chinese tech giant Huawei said Tuesday it could pull out of partnerships in hostile countries as it seeks to counter security concerns in the West over its 5G technology.

Renault to play safe with French replacements for Ghosn

Carlos Ghosn’s momentous years at the helm of Renault are expected to come to an end this Thursday, with the French group set to announce tried-and-tested executives with experience in the car industry to replace him.
Ghosn held both the CEO and chairman roles, as well as leading the powerful Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, when he was arrested in Japan in November and accused of financial misconduct.
Renault is expected to choose two big-hitters from the French car industry, Thierry Bollore and Jean-Dominique Senard, to take over the CEO and chairman jobs, according to a source who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity.
Ghosn has already been stripped of his responsibilities at Nissan and Mitsubishi.

JT:Princess Mako’s boyfriend insists his family has no financial difficulties
The boyfriend of Princess Mako insisted Tuesday his family had no financial difficulties hanging over them, after reports of a unpaid loan apparently forced a postponement to a wedding between the two college sweethearts.
Kei Komuro and Mako, the eldest granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, had been scheduled to become formally engaged in a traditional Japanese court ceremony last year before a royal wedding planned in late 2018.
But the marriage was dramatically called off last February amid reports Komuro’s family had run into financial difficulties, with his mother failing to repay a four million yen (about 36k US, a big mac combo meal would be about 750 yen) loan from a former fiance of hers.’s-boyfriend-insists-his-family-has-no-financial-difficulties
