+  20/10/2015.  The Queen is hosting the Chinese chairman. On the same day, other chairmen pledged R660 billion investment for industry in South Africa. Meanwhile, Prince William has been appealing against the love of ivory, but it wasn't announced on any main facebook pages or on TV hardly. A chairman agreed to a one-year ban on ivory trade.
