    CANBERRA Adam Shaheen Limited Jersey , Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- The amount of cocaine being imported to Australia from Europe is on the rise, authorities have warned.

     

    From January 2017 to August 2017, the Australian Border Force (ABF) made 934 detections of drugs being smuggled into the country, 178 of which took place at Melbourne Airport.

     

    James Watson, ABF Regional Commander Mitchell Trubisky Limited Jersey , said that cocaine was the most common drug and much of it was coming from Europe.

     

    He said that cocaine had been found by agents at Melbourne Airport hidden in the linings of suitcases, in children's toys, in food products and even internally.

     

    "Since January 2017 we have observed an increase of European citizens attempting to bring cocaine into the country through Australian airports," Watson told Australian media on Thursday.

     

    In July two German nationals were charged after attempting to import approximately 8 kg of cocaine, and in February a 39-year-old Italian national attempted to import 5 kg of cocaine Anthony Miller Limited Jersey , both through Melbourne Airport.

     

    "No matter how unique or sophisticated concealment methods are, importers are no match for our highly trained officers and cutting-edge x-ray technology.

     

    "There is a very high probability they will be caught and the penalties are severe."

     

    The German nationals, aged 21 and 22, were charged with importing a commercial quantity of a border-controlled substance which carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

     

    Cocaine worth 870,000 U.S. dollars was found in the suitcase of the Italian woman when x-ray screening of her luggage revealed a plywood false bottom James Daniels Limited Jersey , under which were several packages containing cocaine.

    BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- China will set up more cross-border e-commerce pilot zones in favor of trade facilitation to boost China's global competitiveness, according to a decision made at a State Council executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang on Wednesday.

     

    The meeting decided to extend the success of cross-border e-commerce pilot zones to more cities with good infrastructure and strong trade and e-commerce development potential across the country. The original initiative was set in motion by the State Council in Hangzhou in 2015 before being expanded to another 12 cities Roquan Smith Limited Jersey , including Shanghai, Tianjin and Chongqing, since early 2016.

     

    Some good practices are going national, such as the development of online comprehensive service platforms incorporating custom clearance, logistics Women's Hroniss Grasu Jersey , tax refund, payment, fund raising and risk control services and offline industrial parks providing whole-industrial-chain services.

     

    "We need to enable the healthy development of cross-border e-commerce and speed up the growth of new engines, making the foreign trade sector more adaptive to new circumstances and better endowed with new cutting edges," Li said. "The prospect of cross-border e-commerce is very bright."

     

    Statistics by the Ministry of Commerce shows that 220 countries and regions across the world were covered by China's cross-border e-commerce network as of 2016 Women's Jonathan Bullard Jersey , with a turnover of 5.85 trillion yuan (891 billion U.S. dollars), up by 28.2 percent year-on-year.

     

    The total volume of foreign trade via cross-border e-commerce in the 13 pilot zones reached 163.7 billion yuan in 2016, up by more than 100 percent year-on-year. More than 400 third-party platforms were established and 20,000 cross-border e-commerce trade companies were established in the pilot zones.

     

    The government will further reform to streamline administration, enhance compliance oversight and improve service Women's Eddie Goldman Jersey , and improve the policy matrix for cross-border e-commerce, to boost efficiency and reduce costs of doing business.

     

    Developing the entire value-chain of e-commerce will be a form of support measures, including establishing overseas storage facilities covering key countries and markets and logistics networks.

     

    "We need to expand and clone good experience and practices accumulated, and lay down the rules in a timely manner. The new growth drivers' capacity to boost employment, extend the industry chain and buttress growth cannot be overestimated Women's Kevin White Jersey ," the premier said.

     

    The meeting on Wednesday also decided to support the exploration and innovation efforts by the pilot zones. Different online platforms will be integrated to better provide one-stop services to share information, regulatory credentials and enforcement resources.

     

    Paralleled efforts will be made to match online platforms with robust offline industrial cluster development and comprehensive service provision.

     

    The government will also step up the development of credit system in the cross-border e-commerce sector and improve mechanisms to evaluate e-commerce sector, safeguard transactions, better protect consumers, IPR and manage risks.

     

    "Government oversight should be both enabling and prudent. Producers and platform companies should live up to their responsibilities Women's Cody Whitehair Jersey , while the government's focus is on enhancing compliance oversight," Li said.
