WELLINGTON Women's Air Max 90 Premium SE Pink White UK , May 9 (Xinhua) -- Economic links and alignment of regulations between New Zealand and Australia are set to strengthen but the two governments have put off a proposal for a single trans-Tasman visa for visitors to both countries, according to a joint document released Friday.

The two governments pledged to continue aligning procedures such as patent application and examination, but "few easy wins remained" in the bilateral economic linkages, New Zealand Finance Minister Bill English said in a statement on the joint document.

The joint document was a response to a report by their two nations' productivity commissions, published in 2012, which recommended a series of measures to build on the Closer Economic Relations agreement signed by the two countries in 1983.

Improving economic linkages requires a range of targeted actions Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Essential Triple Black UK , as well as looking at new and innovative areas for cooperation, said the statement from English.

"We have already made significant progress in a number of areas covered by the recommendations, including aligning trademark registration procedures and streamlining the process for resolving trans-Tasman civil proceedings, which is reducing costs and improving efficiency in enforcing judgments across the two countries," he said.

The ongoing work would boost productivity, increase competitiveness and deepen economic integration between Australia and New Zealand.

However Women's Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Essential Triple White UK , in response to a recommendation for a "trans-Tasman tourist visa" for citizens from elsewhere who wanted to travel to both countries, the joint document said this "would present a number of challenges, given significant visa systems and security differences."

Further work would be required to assess the visa waiver arrangements in both countries and whether the benefits of implementing a trans-Tasman visa would outweigh the costs.

However, the two prime ministers had agreed to allow international visitors attending the Cricket World Cup in 2015 to apply for a visa under Australian rules in order to enter both Australia and New Zealand.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his New Zealand counterpart John Key had committed to review progress on the report's recommendations at the next leaders' meeting in 2015.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order Monday to roll back limits on the flow of surplus military gear, including high-caliber weapons and grenade launchers Nike Air Max 90 Mesh Triple Black UK Sale , to local police departments.

The directive Trump signed lifts restrictions put place two years ago by former President Barack Obama amid a nationwide outcry over the police use of military equipment during protests, viewed by many as an unnecessary show of force and intimidation.

The Obama order prohibited local police department from getting access to grenade launchers, tracked armed vehicles, weaponized aircraft and vehicles, and firearms, and high-caliber ammunition.

Addressing a national convention of the Fraternal Order of Police in Nashville Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Mesh Triple White UK , Tennessee, early Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said "those restrictions went too far, we will not put superficial concerns above public safety" .

Their removal will ensure law enforcement officers get the "lifesaving gear" they need to do their job, said Sessions, stressing that it would send a message that they "will not allow criminal activity Men's Air Max Plus TN Ultra Black White UK , violence and lawlessness to become a new normal."

Trump's directive restored a military program called 1033. Authorized by Congress in 1990, it allowed transfer of some surplus military equipment to state and local police agencies in order to help fight drugs and then terrorism.

Obama issued an executive order that severely limited the Pentagon program in 2015, following a spate of high-profile deaths of black men at the hands of the police, including the fatal shooting in 2014 of 18-year-old Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri Women's Air Max Plus TN Ultra All White UK , by a white police officer.

"Militarized gear sometimes gives people a feeling like police are an occupying force as opposed to a part of the community there protect them," Obama said then in announcing the reduction of the program. "Some equipment made for battlefield is not appropriate for local police department."

As of late 2016, an agency that oversees the "1033 program" had recalled at least 100 grenade launchers, more 1,600 bayonets and 126 tracked vehicles, which were tunneled through the program in past decades but listed in 2015 as "prohibited equipment" that could no longer be distributed to police.

Trump's decision to revive program was the latest move by his administration to stake out a controversial hardline stance on law enforcement.
