Beijing: Preferential financial policies will be continued by China to support Tibet for the next five years.

On Wednesday, Deputy Head of the People’s Bank of China, Pan Gongsheng urged commercial banks to provide more credit resources for the state while risks are under control, Xinhua news agency reported.

He stressed on diversifying financial businesses and increasing branches in Tibet and encouraging qualified capital to establish small institutions like private and village banks.

More direct financing and financial bonds are expected to facilitate enterprises, especially small and micro businesses, in Tibet.

Liu Shiyu, Chairman of Agricultural Bank of China, said that the bank had set up 511 branches in Tibet and will try to establish financial services in all counties with access to highways, electricity and phone signals by the end of 2016.

Heads of Agricultural Development Bank and People’s Insurance Group also said that there will be more capital and policy support for Tibet’s local financing and industrial expansion. Tibet’s head Dalai Lama lives in India and has kept the demands of the freedom alive for the people of his place.

With such initiatives, China is trying to woo the locals of the troubled state. The communist party led country keeps facing protests all around the world for this issue. (IANS)

One more U.S. Embassy employee in Havana, Cuba, has been affected by mysterious health incidents, the State Department said.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said one of two Americans recently evacuated from Cuba was “medically confirmed” to have been affected, while the other was “still being evaluated” by doctors.

25 Americans affected

In all, 25 Americans have been affected by the mystery ailment in Cuba.

“We still don’t know, to this day, what is causing it and who is responsible,” Nauert said, noting that investigations were underway in Havana as well as Guangzhou, China, where one employee experienced similar symptoms recently.

The United States has said that the Cuba incidents started in late 2016. The State Department calls them “specific attacks” but has not said what caused them or who was behind them. Cuba has adamantly denied involvement or knowledge.

Initial speculation centered on some type of sonic attack owing to strange sounds heard by those affected, but an interim FBI report in January found no evidence that sound waves could have caused the damage, The Associated Press has reported.

Warning issued in China

The State Department issued a health warning after the employee in China reported experiencing “subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure” and was diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described it as a “serious medical incident.”

The new confirmation came less than a week after the U.S. renewed demands on Cuba to determine the source of the “attacks” on U.S. diplomats. Cuba responded by again denying any involvement in or knowledge of any such attacks. (VOA)
