The Year of Culture and Tourism between Croatia and China, which will be celebrated in November in Shanghai, on the occasion of the 2nd International Import Exhibition in China (China International Import Expo), Croatian presence in Shanghai with HGK and HTZ representations, friendly cooperation between Zagreb and Shanghai which will have its 40th anniversary next year, Dubrovnik SUmmit 16 + 1, established cooperation of tourist boards between Shanghai and Opatija, etc.… This is the largest space of this Museum so far, which has gained worldwide popularity in just four years since the opening of its doors in Zagreb and has become our tourist export product. The Shanghai Museum of Illusions started its work three months after the signing of cooperation between the founder of the Museum of Illusions and Chinese partner, longtime promoter of Croatian-Chinese economic cooperation, Cai Yu, on the sidelines of the Dubrovnik Summit 16 + 1. The intention of the Chinese partner in the souvenir shop of the Museum of Illusions is to offer Croatian products as well, so that they will become available on the Chinese market. The interest of Chinese investors, strengthening ties between Croatia and China, placing our services and products on the Chinese market is constantly emphasized through the media, and the opening of the Museum of Illusion in China is one of the concrete successful economic shifts resulting from the overall positive climate between positive Croatian relations. and China. The Museum of Illusions with its great story and franchise concept has crossed all global boundaries and with currently 16th locations in the world I would not be surprised if in a couple of years the total number of franchises is finally added another zero. In fact, I’m sure that this news will soon adorn all media headlines. last_img read more

Japan suicides at historic low in 2019 but more teens kill themselves

first_imgSuicides in Japan in 2019 fell to a historic low, marking the tenth straight year of declines, but youth suicides continued to rise, police said on Tuesday.Though suicide in Japan has a long history as a way of avoiding shame or dishonor, and its suicide rate still tops the Group of Seven nations, a national effort has brought suicides down by about 40% in roughly 15 years.Suicides totaled 20,169 in 2019, 617 or 3.7% fewer than the previous year, and was the lowest since the compilation of data began in 1978. The suicide rate edged down to 16% per 100,000, a dip of 0.5% from the previous year and also the lowest in history. By contrast, the suicide rate for the United States, which has more than twice Japan’s population and a growing suicide problem, was 14.2% in 2018.The number of those under 20 who took their lives rose by 60 from the previous year to 659, the only age group to see a rise. Though suicides result from multiple causes, bullying has remained a persistent problem in Japanese schools.Suicides peaked at 34,427 in 2003, alarming policy makers and drawing foreign attention.Though the police did not give any reason for the decline, an improving economy has undoubtedly helped, and a suicide prevention program is apparently bearing fruit.
