KATHMANDU Authentic Curtis Samuel Jersey , May 15 (Xinhua) -- A team of 14 rope-fixing climbers on Monday stood atop the world's highest peak Mount Qomolangma, becoming the first team of 2017 to reach the summit from south face in Nepal.

Though other Sherpa climbers had already opened the route to the top of Qomolangma via China's Tibet last week, expedition from Nepal side was delayed this spring season owing to bad weather.

""A team of 14 rope-fixing climbers have reached the summit between 1:15 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. today,"" Gyanendra Shrestha, a Tourism Ministry official Authentic Devin Funchess Jersey , told Xinhua on Monday.

Last year, the rope fixing task was completed on May 11.

""The first two summiteers are Pema Chhiring and Pem Chhiri who stood atop at 1:15, "" Phurba Tenzing Sherpa, a record holder Qomolangma climber told Xinhua from the base camp.

Fourteen high altitude mountain guides were assigned for rope fixing from Camp II to top of the 8,848 meter peak under Expedition Operators Association of Nepal (EOAN).

Dambar Parajuli Authentic Shaq Thompson Jersey , President of EOAN, told Xinhua on Monday, ""As the route is open now, the rope-fixing Sherpa will return to base camp and escort their clients to the summit.""

The ascent of the 14 climbers has paved the way for all the commercial and independent summits of 2017.

According to Department of Tourism, 40 expedition teams comprising 373 climbers from various countries are conquering the world's highest peak this spring season. May is regarded as the perfect window for Qomolangma expedition in terms of favorable weather between winter and monsoon.

Many have expressed fears of traffic jam in Qomolangma region this season due to high number of climbers and their mountain guides and helpers.

Qomolangma has not only been an identity of the Himalayan nation but also a major source of revenue collection. The Himalayan country that charges 11 Authentic James Bradberry Jersey ,000 U.S. dollars per foreign climber earns millions of dollars annually.

This year, Mount Qomolangma has already recorded two tragedies including the deaths of famous Swiss climber Ueli Steck and the 86-year-old Nepali climber Min Bahadur Sherchan, who was in a bid to regain the title of oldest climber.

There were no expeditions in the spring of 2015 due to avalanches triggered by the devastating April 25 earthquake that killed 19 climbers, including high-altitude guides and helpers. The government had extended their permits for two years, which is ending this year.

There was no expedition in 2014 as well as 16 Sherpa guides were killed in an avalanche near Qomolangma Base Camp.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP), the first industrial park to be jointly developed by Malaysia and China, is on track to achieve its investment target, according to MCKIP Chairman Soam Heng Choon.

Soam said in a recent interview with Xinhua that so far Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey , the industrial park has secured 30 billion ringgit (7.03 billion U.S. dollars) in foreign investments, which is within his expectation.

At least 18 investors at MCKIP came from industries related to energy-saving and environmental technologies, high-end equipment and advanced materials manufacturing as well as heavy industries, he said.

Soam, also chief executive officer and managing director of Malaysia's established conglomerate IJM Corp which is one of the stakeholders of MCKIP Authentic Kawann Short Jersey , said, "The demand from investors has been encouraging. Our focus now is to get these investments on ground."

Noting that most of the investments originated from China, the veteran businessman sees the high level of interest from Chinese investors as a reflection of a positive development and investors' confidence in MCKIP and the Malaysian government's commitment to supporting the growth of MCKIP.

Although China's investors are the industrial park's main partners, Soam said the management is open to investors from home and other countries, who are looking to expand their foothold and take advantage of MCKIP's strategic location.

Soam acknowledged that competition is rife among industrial parks in the country and in neighboring countries. But Malaysia's cultural diversity Authentic Trai Turner Jersey , its high adaptability as well as attractive incentives that are doled out by the government have been MCKIP's main selling point.

Investors are given a 15-year tax exemption period by the government - a special incentive that no other industrial parks in Malaysia offers.

MCKIP's strong relationship with the Kuantan Port, a strategic shipping port located 10 km from MCKIP, also makes the industrial park an attractive destination for businesses.

According to Soam, the port is expected to secure the final clearance to operate as a Free Trade Zone by the end of this year, which he sees as a highly complementary feature.

It is also noted that Hong Kong's NewOcean Energy has recently announced its plan to set up an oil refinery and related sea terminal facilities at the Kuantan Port for the export and sale of petroleum products.

Soam is hopeful that by utilising the Kuantan Port's existing and new berths as well as its terminal equipment Authentic Ryan Kalil Jersey , the new refinery project will augment the port's throughput.

In line with the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, MCKIP together with its sister park, the China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park, has been identified by the Malaysian and Chinese governments as iconic projects in their . Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap Authentic Jerseys   Cheap Replica Jerseys   Cheap NFL Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys   Wholesale Soccer Jerseys   Cheap Authentic Adidas NHL Jerseys
