When trade frictions among major economies escalated and talks were suspended, th上海龙凤1314女神会所
e G20 played a significant role in mitigating trade tensions, facilitating dialogue and safeguarding the m
上海龙凤1314ultilateral economic governance mechanism. And since economies still face difficulties in settling trade disputes, th
e G20 should continue to help them negotiate and reach acceptable agreements.
There is no doubt that unilateralism and trade protectionism pose a threat to economic globa上海龙凤1314女神会所
lization and intensify the global governance deficit. In particular, the US’ punitive tariffs on imports, e
specially from China, has intensified the trade conflicts and hurt the world economy－so much so that the Interna
上海龙凤1314tional Monetary Fund has warned that global GDP growth will decline by 0.5 percent if the trade frictions continue till 2020.
China has advocated that the World Trade Organization be reformed and the global economic order
maintained based on the principle of multilateralism so that trade disputes can be settled according to WTO rules.上海龙凤1314女神会所
But the economies disagree with some of the existing WTO rules and the system of governance. De
spite that, they are yet to find ways to improve them. Also, the economies don’t have any agreement on how
上海龙凤1314女神会所to govern emerging industries such as e-commerce and deal with behaviors harmful to the market. Which means there
is a need to strengthen the global economic governance system by modernizing rules, especially those of the WTO.
Besides, the major economies need to coordinate their policies to provide more public goods a
nd work together to improve global economic governance. Only if major economies cooperate can they produ上海龙凤1314
ce more public goods and strengthen economic governance. Therefore, to sustain global g上海龙凤1314女神会所
rowth and strengthen economic governance, major powers need to synergize their trade policies.
nt history, the relocation of some manufacturing industries from
上海龙凤1314China to overseas destinations is inevitable given the extent of China’s development. On the other h
and, this phenomenon does not mean China will lose its manufacturing and economic power.上海龙凤1314品茶微信
During the previous five industrial migrations, the economic development of the leading countries that hosted such industries didn’t stop after
some of the traditional sectors relocated to other countries. Instead, they soon saw the rise of new industries, high-end m上海龙凤1314
anufacturing and the service sector－and they are still developed economies. For example, the US is still the world’s larg
上海龙凤1314品茶微信est economy even 60 years after the third industrial migration, while Japan, Germany and Britain are ranked among the
top seven economies in terms of size and quality even decades after the industrial migration.上海龙凤1314
Relocation speed and scope not alarming
As a country with the world’s largest population, the third-largest territory, and the longest continuous上海龙凤1314
economic growth curve, China’s case will be the same even after the relocation of some of its manufacturing industries.
First, as mentioned above, the speed and scope of the manufacturing units’ relocation from China are not as fast and large as s
上海龙凤1314品茶微信ome people imagine. The industrial relocation from China started after the 2008 global financial crisis br
oke out, accelerated in 2012, and gained pace last year due to the Sino-US trade conflicts.
But the consequences are not expected to be very serious. For instance, from 2008 to 2018, global trade grew at an annual aver
age rate of 2.4 percent, while China saw 6.3 percent annual average export growth, which shows China’s export g上海龙凤1314品茶微信
rowth has been not only steady, but also 3.9 percentage points higher than that of global trade.
As a result, the share of China’s exports in global exports rose from 8.9
percent in 2008 to 12.9 percent in 2018, an increase of 4 percentage points. Which is a clear indica上海龙凤1314
tion that the relocation of manufacturing industries from China is not fast enough to make us feel worried.
Second, the rapid rise of emerging manufacturing industries in China will to a large extent offset t上海龙凤1314
he impact of the relocation of low-end industries on its entire manufacturing industry and e上海龙凤1314品茶微信
conomy. Therefore, China will continue to be a manufacturing and economic powerhouse.

Tianhe district is the top economic area in Guangzhou, Guangdong province. Last year, the district’s GDP reached 343.3 billion yuan.
上海龙凤1314The financial services industry is dominant in Tianhe district. Accor

上海龙凤1314女神会所The district also has built a “Internet Plus” town. Currently, more than 400 interne

In the next three years, the district government will deeply integra上海龙凤1314

two female Chi上海龙凤1314女神会所nese climbers: Ma Liyamu from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, and Tsang Yin Hung from Hong Kong.
For Ma and Tsang, it was their second ascent to the summit of Mount Qomolangma, as Ma had reached th
e top of the mountain in 2016, and Tsang conquered it in 2017. But for Sun, this was her first such experience.
“What surprised me when I reached the top was the shadow of Mount Qom
olangma on other mountains. It was simply magnificent and stunning and it was a heavenly experience,” she shared.
Growing up, Sun didn’t have any aspirati
ons to climb Mount Qomolangma, but she loved drawing, especially nature and mountain scenes.
Having worked as a designer, she had some mountaineering exp
erience after climbing Mount Manaslu in September last year. Before she came into contact w
ith Ma, it was not in her mind to form an all-female, all-Chinese team to summit the mountain.
After a disappointing performance in 2018, China’s economy appears to be stabiliz
ing. In the first quarter of 2019, GDP growth, at 6.4 percent year-on-year, matched that of the previous quarter. But grow
th in industrial production exceeded expectations, expanding by 6.5 percent year-on-year (and by 8.5 percent in Mar
ch). Even exports growth was positive, albeit weak, despite the ongoing trade frictions with the United States.
Moreover, fixed-asset investment (FAI) grew by 6.3 percent－0.2 percentage points higher than in the previous quar
ter. Investment in real estate grew the fastest (11.8 percent), followed by manufacturing (4.6 percent) and in
frastructure (4.4 percent). The growth of investment both in real estate and infrastru
cture was stronger not only sequentially, but also year-on-year. As usual, consumption growth was stable.
