     BEIJING (MNI) - The following lists highlights from the Chinese press for
     The Chinese government's involvement helped the decision by the U.S.
Department of Commerce to lift a ban on ZTE, Xinhua News Agency said. The
government stepped in to help save thousands of jobs in ZTE and Chinese
companies that do business with it, but the government will not help companies
every time when they are in trouble, Xinhua said. Chinese companies need to obey
local laws and regulations when investing abroad, Xinhua said. ZTE is required
to change its management structure and accept supervision from the U.S. under
the agreement with the U.S. government, Xinhua said.
     Chinese regulators are expected to slap some banks with large fines after
completing the first half of a nationwide probe on selected banks by June 20,
Securities Times reported. Regulators target mismanagement, businesses of shadow
banking and cross-market financial products, operation risks and illegal
practices harming consumers, the report said. More banks may be under scrutiny
in the second half, the newspaper said, citing banking and regulatory sources.
     Issuance of local government bonds accelerated in early June, China
Securities Journal reported. Since local governments were allowed to issued new
bonds on May 29, CNY100 billion LGB were issued as of June 6, the newspaper
said, citing data from Wind Information. Most bonds were issued by northeastern,
central and western regions due to their greater needs for financing
infrastructure building, the newspaper said, citing Qiao Baoyun, a professor of
Central University of Finance and Economics.
