|GOMA www.amnishop.com , DR Congo, Feb. 7 (Xinhua) -- In shops and restaurants as well as in villages in Rutshuru territory of North Kivu province, east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo), commercial transactions are conducted in the Ugandan currency, the shilling.
The local currency, the Congolese franc, has been relegated to the second position and it is commonly used around administrative offices.
1 scarpe nike air max italia ,000 shillings, 5,000 shillings..., prices are displayed on different products in markets just like in shops in Bungana, one of the two border posts in North Kivu province, near the Ugandan border.
"Here in Rutshuru, the practice goes several years back scarpe nike air max online , even before the arrival of CNDP rebels (National Congress for the Defense of the People) and later the M23 rebels," a money broker tells Xinhua.
"But the practice has evidently accentuated following the arrival of pro-Rwanda and pro-Uganda rebels who have been directly or indirectly controlling the region," he said.
BETTER PRICES IN SHILLINGS
With the Congolese francs, one can hardly buy any product, especially those imported from Uganda. In most cases, people are forced to exchange their Congolese money into Ugandan shillings before buying at a better price.
"With the shillings, the price is affordable scarpe nike air max outlet , but if you come with the Congolese currency, the price is higher," said Agnes Mbarushimana, a shop keeper.
"Even pupils are not spared. School fees has to be paid in Ugandan shillings, because if you pay in the Congolese currency, the fees is much higher," residents told Xinhua.
However scarpe nike air max scontate , one school administrator noted that the situation had been forced on them by the socioeconomic context they operate under.
EVERYONE HEADING TO UGANDA
In the nearby Busanza locality, which also borders Uganda, the population lives a Ugandan lifestyle.
"Here, everyone operates like a Ugandan. Beer, food and other manufactured products come from Uganda, something that forces us to keep more Ugandan shillings than Congolese francs, which may not be used in buying anything scarpe nike air max ," said Juvenal, a youth who plies Ishasha-Kisoro-Kampala route.
The people in the locality have gradually started watching Ugandan television stations that use Luganda (Uganda's national language) and English.
Each passing day, this situation continues without worrying anyone. The Congolese economy services charged with the responsibility of fixing prices and ensuring respect for the local currency seem to be absent or inactive.
The only savior at the moment is the continued payment of civil servants in the Congolese franc, something that may not be assured for a long time in a zone with no banking institution.
A life-sized replica of the Titanic will become the centerpiece of a landlocked theme park in China, featuring a museum and a shipwreck simulation to give visitors a harrowing sense of the 1912 disaster.
The Chinese version of “the unsinkable ship,” with a price tag of 1 billion yuan (US$165 million) and an expected opening date in 2016, will be built at least 1 Uomo Nike Air VaporMax Nere Italia ,500 kilometers from the nearest ocean in the southwestern province of Sichuan.
Su Shaojun, chief executive of the Seven Star Energy Investment Group that funded the project, said Asia needs its own Titanic museum.
“We think it’s worth spreading the spirit of the Titanic. The universal love and sense of responsibility shown during the Titanic shipwreck represent the spiritual richness of human civilisation,” he said.
The project aims to be more than a museum that replicates the ship and the 1997 movie that became a global hit. The simulation will allow hundreds of people at a time to feel what the shipwreck was like.
“When the ship hits the iceberg, it will shake, it will tumble,” Su said. “We will let people experience water coming in by using sound and light effects ... They will think Uomo Nike Air VaporMax Nere Bianche Saldi , ‘The water will drown me, I must escape with my life.’”
The massive and luxurious Titanic sank on April 15, 1912, during its maiden voyage from the English port of Southampton to New York, taking more than 1,500 lives with it.
The 1997 movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet Uomo Nike Air Max 95 Bianche Saldi , is the second highest-grossing film on record after Avatar, bringing in nearly US$2.2 billion worldwide.
Bernard Hill, who played Captain Edward Smith in the movie and flew to Hong Kong on Sunday to show his support for the Chinese replica, dismissed suggestions that building a theme park based on a tragedy was inappropriate.
“It’s been approached in a very delicate and a very sensitive way and they’re very aware of the extent of the disaster in 1912,” he said. “I don’t think it will belittle that disaster.”
Hill said his flight and hotel were paid for but he did not get any extra money for taking part in the media conference.
Construction of the Titanic copy is due to begin early this year. The Romandisea Seven Star International Cultural Tourism Resort will also feature a man-made beach, a “6D” movie theater and replicas of a Venetian church and European castles.
