plant business owner Lee Won-jeong in 2017 bought the site from Kim, but kept him on as manager. Lee is based in Busan, in the south of the country, and claims he was unaware of the problems at the site.
Lee says that after the sale, Kim deposited
more than 80 times the amount of g arbage permitted at the site, including household waste, construction materials, and discarded polymer.
The manager of the site had a permit to dump 2,0
00 tons of waste, the site holds more than 80 times that now. As the trash mountain decomposed, gas built up under the surface. In December last year, fires began to appear.
Lee says that when he learned of Kim’s misco

e using their own resources to tackle the trash but the
flaming mountain is too big for them to resolve. ”The waste is mostly from outside of our region. It’s too much for us to take care of the issue at the local level,” says Kwon.
technologies to support farmers to practice sustainable agricultural production.
“The combining chance of advanced breeding
technologies that makes the seeds smarter and more productive, together with modern crop protection products that are friendlier to the envir
onment, coupled with biological technolog
ies that really helps explore the power of microorganisms in the soil, w ith digital tools as integrators, you bring all of these together.”
In June 2018, Bayer completed its acquisition o
f Monsanto, a US seeds and agrochemic als company, and became the world’s largest supplier of seeds and agricultural chemicals.
“We are a leader of agriculture,” Madrazo said, “when you look
at our new,
integrated company there are three specific aspects that excite us: First one is our top innovation ability; Second one is leading the digital transformation in agriculture; and the third one is we have a re
al opportunity to shape sustainability for the benefit of farmers, consumers and our planet.”

Judging from the policies, opening up the incremental market will c

ceremony of the China International Import Expo, stating that China is steadily expanding the
opening-up of the financial sector, and will loosen
limitations on foreign investment in the medical field. Market insiders said that this is a positive signal for China’s medical sector to attract foreign investment.
According to the notice issued by the government in 2000, forei
gn capital can contribute up to a 70 percent share of China’s medical institutions.
