Canada cancels investment immigration, Chinese people are keen on regional housing prices

China News Service, February 13th According to Canada’s “World Journal” report, the news that the Canadian Federal Immigration Department will cancel investment immigration has caused repercussions in the local Chinese real estate industry. The Chinese real estate agents interviewed believe that this decision is correct. The housing market in Greater Toronto has a significant impact, which will inevitably lead to a decline in house prices, especially in high-priced luxury homes.

Broker Li Wei said that in recent years, wealthy people in China have come to buy real estate, and the housing prices in the Greater Toronto Area have been too high, especially in some so-called prestigious campuses. Outrageous. Local people, especially those who are new to the market, simply can’t afford a house. It is a good thing that the Immigration Department now intends to close the door to those who have money in their hands and have no real contribution to their country.

Li Wei said that when such a particularly wealthy person cannot come to Canada, it will definitely have an impact on the local real estate market, and house prices will fall and eventually fall back to normal levels. He believes that the overall real estate market will be cooled, but the price of some areas that Chinese people are keen on will fall more significantly. He stressed that in the current market, the rise in housing prices in the Chinese-speaking regions is generally higher than in areas where Chinese are not interested.

As for whether house prices will fall significantly in the short term, and how much the decline will be, Li Wei said that it is difficult to predict. However, he believes that while those overseas rich people withdraw from the local real estate market, local buyers will gradually enter the market because house prices are no longer high and scary, so the market will gradually move toward normal.

In the 21st century, Fu Bao real estate agent Zhu Baolin believes that Canada will no longer absorb investment immigrants. The local high-priced housing market will experience a slight decrease in turnover and house prices, but it will not impact the market too much.

Zhu Baolin said that he took a guest to see the house the day before yesterday. He had placed an order at the evening, but after hearing the news of canceling the investment immigration at night, he offered to suspend the order and wait and see if the house price would be Down. So this is the market reaction. Because everyone feels that if investment immigrants can no longer enter Canada, the real estate market will certainly not be able to avoid the impact, and house prices will fall.

However, Zhu Baolin feels that the impact of changes in investment immigration policy should be mainly high-priced housing. The medium and low-priced housing is mainly purchased by local people, so it will not be greatly affected. Even because many first-time buyers will enter the market due to falling house prices.

Zhu Baolin also said that house prices are subject to market demand, interest rates, employment rates, Canadian dollar exchange rates, economic growth rates, etc., as some buyers’ exits will not have an excessive impact on the market. As Canada’s economic growth rate and employment rate are still optimistic, and interest rates are still at a low level, and the recent weakening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar, these will prompt investors to join the Canadian real estate market. Furthermore, although the federal government has cancelled investment immigration, investment immigration projects in various provinces still provide opportunities for prospective applicants. In addition, more and more international students come to Canada to study. Most of the parents behind them have the idea of ​​buying a home for their children. Together with their economic strength, these factors can bring buyers to the real estate market in the Greater Toronto Area. In short, house prices will fall slightly, but the impact on the overall market will not be too great.

Foreign media: The maintenance cost of the stadium after the Sochi Winter Olympics will reach 7 billion US dollars

People’s Network Moscow, February 13 (Reporter Liu Xu) According to Bloomberg News, Russian officials said that the maintenance cost of the Sochi Winter Olympics stadium facilities will reach 7 billion US dollars in the next three years, which is almost 2010 in Canada. All expenses for the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

It is reported that Russia has invested a total of 50 billion US dollars in hosting the Sochi Winter Olympics. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said that 6.4 billion US dollars will be used for the construction of Olympic venues, and the rest will be invested in the entire region. Development and construction projects.

In 2007, Sochi won the right to host the 2014 Winter Olympics. To organize the Winter Olympics, Sochi has built 14 stadiums, hotel facilities with 19,000 rooms, 260 kilometers of roads, 200 kilometers of railways, 54 bridges and 22 tunnels.

The post-game utilization of Olympic stadiums is a problem that all Olympic cities must face. According to Bloomberg News, Greece spent a total of $11.6 billion on the 2004 Olympic Games, but the financial crisis that followed has caused the country’s economy to remain unrecoverable. The news said that the Russian government will have to support the maintenance of the Sochi Winter Olympic venues and sports facilities. Maintenance costs for sports facilities will remain between 60 billion and 80 billion rubles per year.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that when he met with representatives of the Sochi Winter Olympics to organize the Social Committee, the country invested a lot of resources for the development of Sochi, so no additional funds will be invested, and the development of the city depends on Other methods and funding to achieve. The Russian government hopes that the cost of the Sochi Winter Olympics can be offset by the development of local tourism. Previously, it was proposed to build a casino district in Sochi, but this proposal was immediately rejected by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sochi will host a number of major international sports events and events in the coming years. For example, in June 2014, Sochi will host the G8 Summit, and in October will also host the Formula 1 Grand Prix (F1) Russia Grand Prix. In 2018, Sochi is also one of the host cities of the World Cup.

According to a survey conducted by Bloomberg on 21 economists, the Russian fiscal deficit in 2014 was 390 billion rubles, which was without considering the cost of maintaining the Sochi Winter Olympic venues. Even with additional spending, Russia’s fiscal deficit rate will remain below 1%, which is the lowest number of fiscal deficits in the G8. Therefore, the huge cost of hosting the Sochi Winter Olympics will not affect Russia’s ability to borrow.

In order to facilitate the recovery of Nazi looted cultural relics, Germany intends to cancel the prosecution period

Germany intends to recover the period of prosecution by Nazi looting artifacts

The picture shows that in London, the auction house staff showed Meissen porcelain. These porcelains were looted from the bombed Jewish homes during the Second World War.

The German Federal Senate began to consider the draft law submitted by the Bavarian State on February 14th, intending to cancel the prosecution period of the stolen art and pave the way for the restoration of the Nazi looting artifacts during World War II.

Bavarian State Department of Justice spokesperson Hannes · Heidek told reporters on the 13th that the Bavarian Ministry of Justice will comprehensively assess the relevant laws of the Nazi looting of cultural relics and victims of Nazi policies. And later generations provide help and hope that this move will be responsive throughout the country. Marcus &middot, a lawyer who helped to recover the looted artifacts, said that the government’s move to amend the law showed Germany’s “political conscience” because Germany had a special responsibility for historical issues.

The value of more than 1 billion euros is suspected of being looted by the Nazis. The police are on the Internet for victims to identify and recover.

The Berlin Film Festival is being held to the public. The Nazis looted artifacts. The film “The Guardian of the Monuments” released during the festival tells the story of how a group of artists selected and protected European cultural relics during the Second World War and avoided the destruction of the Nazis. In the film, most of these artifacts belong to the original owner. However, New York practising lawyer Mel · Ulbach, who helped recover the cultural relics, said in an e-mail to the reporter that the true history is that most of the relics cannot be found because they cannot find the real owner of the relics or can not confirm the cultural relics. Finally returned to the hands of the robbers.

In Germany, people have been paying close attention to relevant cases, the most typical of which is “Gullit”. In September 2010, the Bavarian police conducted a routine inspection on a train from Zurich, Switzerland to Munich, Germany, and found an old man named Cornelius · Gullit carrying 9,000 euros in cash. Although this amount is less than 10,000 euros, the police decided to search Gullit’s apartment in southern Bavaria, given that many Germans had established secret accounts in Switzerland to evade taxes. The search results were shocking: in the corner of the dark apartment, between a pile of cans and garbage, there are more than 1,400 famous paintings hidden. Among them are Picasso, Renoir, Henry · Matisse, Mark · Chagall and others, with a total value of more than 1 billion euros.

Originally, Cornelius · Gullit was the only son of the Nazi period famous painter Hildebrand · Gullit. During World War II, Hildebrand · Gullit and other collectors were hired by the Nazis to deal with the so-called “fallen” art of Impressionism, Cubism, and Modernism. These artworks are either created by Jewish artists or whose aesthetic orientation is not in line with Nazi standards. The Nazis also legislated in 1938 to confiscate “the fallen works”. Experts said that nearly 300 paintings discovered by the police had been on the Nazis’ “Degenerate Art Exhibition”. At the end of World War II, Hildebrand · Gullit claimed that all artifacts were burned in the Allied bombing. It now appears that a large number of famous paintings have been secretly hidden. At present, the Bavarian police have successively painted these paintings online so that the Nazi victims can identify and recover them.

But whether these paintings can be successfully returned to the original owner is still uncertain. On February 11, Gullit’s spokesperson said that Gullit had more than 60 famous paintings in his apartment in Salzburg, Austria. But he said that Gullit hired a group of experts to evaluate the paintings, and preliminary investigations revealed that they “have nothing to do with Nazi looting”. Gullit also stated that he would not take the initiative to hand over his collection of paintings.

When the victim is never allowed to discover the property being looted, he is refused to say, “Sorry, the time limit for recovery has passed” & nbsp;

According to current German law, The prosecution period for theft of articles is only 30 years. Although nearly 70 years after the end of the Second World War, many cultural relics robbed by the Nazis have surfaced in recent years, and some have not been seen so far.

Hedek said that the Bavarian Ministry of Justice never allowed this to happen: a victim discovered the family property that was looted by the Nazis more than 60 years later, but was shrugged and refused to say “Sorry, recovery time has passed.”. To this end, the draft law they drafted will revoke the period of prosecution of Nazi looted cultural relics, but with two additional conditions: First, the German Federal Constitutional Court can file a counterclaim under certain conditions, and second, when the victim recovers the cultural relics, There must be sufficient evidence to prove that the current holder of the cultural relics possesses subjective malice or knows the source of the cultural relics illegally when obtaining the cultural relics.

Heidek said that Germany was one of the 44 signatories to the 1998 Washington Declaration. This non-legally binding declaration calls for public facilities such as museums and government agencies to return art and real estate looted by Nazis and their partners through theft, forced acquisition, and confiscation to victims or their survivors. The declaration did not mention the issue of Nazi looting artifacts in the hands of private collectors. At present, the German political circles still need to further unify their opinions on this issue.

The draft law submitted by Bavaria issued a positive signal and was the first step in resolving the Nazi looting of cultural relics

Attorney Marcus · Stetzer told this reporter that the Bavarian State submitted This draft law sends a positive signal and is the first step in resolving the Nazi looting of cultural relics. He emphasized that Germany has a special responsibility for history. German politicians also clearly expressed their desire to take responsibility and properly solve the problems left over from history, but more efforts are needed. It is expected that Germany, like Austria and other countries, will require the major museums to review the source of the collection and return the illegally collected items to the legal owner.

Stetzer has helped Nazi victims recover looted artifacts for 15 years, both in success and in many twists and turns. He believes that there are three obstacles to the recovery of Nazi looting artifacts. First of all, although Germany is serious about historical issues, with the changes in the domestic and international situation and the growth of the younger generation in the last 70 years after the war, many Germans mistakenly believe that “history has passed, no need to mention”, which constitutes A psychological hurdle. Secondly, the draft law submitted by Bavaria requires that the victim must have sufficient evidence to show that the current holder of the cultural relics “has subjective malice”. This high threshold will cause many technical barriers to the recovery process. Finally, the looted art has long been scattered around the world, but the relevant laws are absent in many countries. For example, many museums in the United States contain a large number of Nazi looting items. Big auction houses also need to develop internal disposal procedures for Nazi looted artifacts.

The World Jewish Congress requested Germany to establish a nationwide data center to analyze and archive Nazi looted artifacts held by various agencies. German Culture Minister Monica · Grutus said that it is difficult to achieve these goals, and the federal government is trying to resolve the legal obstacles.
