China worries weigh on shares

Posted in China Apostille, China Authentication

Australian shares fell today as cautious investors were looking for stronger evidence of global growth, with weak metal prices and China growth concerns weighing on mining stocks.

The S&P/ASX200 index shed 10.1 points, or 0.2 per cent, to 4263, while the broader All Ords fell 9.9 points, or 0.2 per cent, to 4354.2.

Miners led the market’s fall, with the materials sub-index dropping 0.8 per cent. Energy stocks fell 0.6 per cent, while financials edged up 0.1 per cent.

Investor sentiment has been improving over the past couple of months as major central banks around the world showed their determination to flood the financial system with ample funds to avoid a crisis triggered by a credit crunch, allowing money to flow broadly into assets.

While recent US data pointing to a recovery has prompted investors to shift their focus towards economic fundamentals and away from long-running troubles in the euro zone, they remain watchful of developments in the debt crisis and a slowdown in China, Australia’s top trade partner.

China aims to grow its economy by about 7.5 per cent in 2012 and sees inflation running at around 4 per cent for the year, Premier Wen Jiabao said today. That is below assumptions for 8 per cent growth in China by miners such as Rio Tinto.

“China just tweaked back its growth expectation. That just serves as a reminder that reliance on exports for growth in the short-term will be difficult,” Ric Spooner, strategist at CMC Markets, said.

Traders said investors would observe the tone of comments by the Reserve Bank tomorrow after it releases its monthly rate decision, and wait to see how debt problems in Europe unfold.

The central bank is widely expected to keep interest rates at 4.25 per cent. Last month, the bank indicated that inflation was subdued enough to allow an easing but only if the economy slowed materially.

Shares in surfwear retailer Billabong fell 2.7 per cent to $2.92. The shares have been under pressure since the company rejected a takeover approach at $3.30 a share by buyout firm TPG late last month.

Shares in Gloucester Coal rose 3.2 per cent. Media reports indicated the firm’s independent board of directors were set to approve a merger with Yancoal, a unit of Yanzhou Coal.

China’s Premier Wen opens National People’s Congress

Posted in Certificate of Good Standing Apostille and Authenticate for China, China, China Apostille, China Authentication

China’s leaders do not like to spring big surprises and Wen Jiabao’s speech was in line with that principle. His work report contained many expected details and pledges.

As usual, there was a raft of economic figures – China will aim for economic growth of 7.5% this year, slightly lower than in previous years.

This reflects the fact that the world economy is struggling, and that China needs to change the way it does business.

But there were a few items in the speech that could raise eyebrows. Mr Wen said the main task of the country’s growing military is “to win local wars” – words that will be keenly studied in the capitals of China’s neighbours.

The premier also spoke of Chinese farmers having “property rights” and “land ownership” – odd words for a man who knows all land in China, at the moment, is effectively owned by the government.

He said economic and political reforms should be pursued with “greater resolve and courage”.

The premier is on the verge of retirement. Perhaps this report contained a hint of Wen Jiabao’s true thoughts.

In an address seen as China’s “state of the nation” speech, Mr Wen said China had set a 7.5% economic growth target this year – lower than the 8% target of the last eight years.

He said the move aimed to allow changes to the pattern of economic development, making it “more sustainable and efficient”.

China also set its inflation target at 4% and pledged to create nine million new jobs in towns and cities.

Mr Wen spoke of boosting domestic consumption, increasing spending on social services and raising incomes of middle and low-income groups, as well as expanding consumer credit.

“We aim to promote steady and robust economic development, keep prices stable, and guard against financial risks by keeping the total money and credit supply at an appropriate level, and taking a cautious and flexible approach,” he said.

The premier addressed the issue of land rights – a topic that has become more prominent in recent months following high-profile protests against land seizures for development in the Guangdong village of Wukan.

“Farmers’ rights to the land they contract to work on, to the land on which their houses sit and to proceeds from collective undertakings are property rights conferred by law, and these rights must not be violated by anyone,” he said.

Security issues were also high on the agenda. Parliament convened a day after China announced a 11.2% increase in its defence spending – pushing it above $100bn (£65bn) for the first time.

Countdown to transition

  • October 2012: The 17th Central Committee (2007-2012) convenes to select China’s 18th Central Committee (2013-2018), including party secretary, Politburo and Standing Committee
  • March 2013: Selection of new government, including president, premier and State Council at the NPC
  • Timing unclear: Hu Jintao to step down aschairman of Central Military Commission
  • Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang seen as frontrunnersto replace President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao

“We will enhance the armed forces’ capacity to accomplish a wide range of military tasks, the most important of which is to win local wars under information-age conditions,” Mr Wen said.

In recent months tensions between China and its neighbours over territorial disputes in the South China Sea have been growing.

An increase of 11.5% in public security spending was also announced, bringing the annual total to $111bn.

This comes amid tension in ethnic Tibetan parts of China and days after an attack in Xinjiang – home to minority Muslim Uighurs – left 20 people dead.

During the meeting, which ends on 14 March, parliament is expected to approve changes to the criminal procedure law which officials say will give suspects more rights – but which activists fear could legalise secret detentions.

Power of Attorney

Posted in China Apostille, Power of Attorney

A power of attorney (POA) or letter of attorney in common law systems or mandate in civil law systems is an authorization to act on someone else’s behalf in a legal or business matter. The person named in a power of attorney to act on your behalf is commonly referred to as your “agent” or “attorney-in-fact.” With a valid power of attorney, your agent can take any action permitted in the document. Often your agent must present the actual document to invoke the power. For example, if another person is acting on your behalf to sell an automobile, the motor vehicles department generally will require that the power of attorney be presented before your agent’s authority to sign the title will be honored.

3Types of Power of Attorney:

Durable Power of Attorney

  • Durable General Power of Attorney for Property & Finances (Immediate)
  • Springing Durable Power of Attorney for Property & Finances (Upon Disability or Incompetence) 
  • General Power of Attorney for Property & Finances by Husband and Wife

Non-Durable Power of Attorney 

  • Nondurable General Power of Attorney for Property & Finances
  • Nondurable Limited Power of Attorney  
  • Nondurable Power of Attorney for Physical and Health Care of Minor Child ( Both Parents or Sole Custodial Parent )

Limited (Special) Power of Attorney
