at both sides derive from their economic relationship, said former Chinese Vice-Premier Zeng Peiyan.

There has always been divergence between Chinese and US figures on the bilateral trade gap due to the different met

Meanwhile, 79 percent of the Chinese high net worth individuals polled said they are optimistic about their inves

tment returns for the next six months, while the average number was 62 percent in the North Asian markets.

Despite the fact that the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index sh

ed nearly 24 percent in 2018, 67 percent of Chinese participants said they will increase their inv

estments in the stock market in the next six months, much higher than the 51 percent registered in North Asia on average.

UBS found that cash still makes up about 30 percent of the investmen

t portfolios of Chinese high net worth individuals, which is the lowest among all surveyed Asi

a-Pacific markets, and even lower than the global average of 32 percent. Although China’s number is relatively lo

w, it is comparatively one of the most significant parts of the investment portfolios of high net worth individuals.

“I think there are advantages and opportunities on b

He listed infrastructure, energy, education and business-to-business relationships as potential areas of coope

ration between China and the US, and he suggested such cooperation could start from subnational bilateral exchanges.

“It’s so important to be working at the state and local level. Because in that fashion, by buildin

Learning to work together in an orderly, high trust lev

, and supported by diverse interest groups will prevent conflicts among stakeholders in the South China Sea,” Santarita said.

China is in the midst of implementing a host of reforms, which are focused on opening up its economy to foreign compet

ition and strengthening its private sector. They are needed to upgrade its industries and avoid the dreaded middle-income trap.

Many of these reforms are exactly what the United States is asking for in the trade negotiation

s, but China is actually pursuing these reforms primarily to achieve its own long-term internal economic goals.

He said Asia’s emphasis on “respect for authority, respect for the environm

ent and the discipline to control the use of resources” will also see Asian leaders purs

uing a more eco-friendly development path and honor their commitments to the Paris climate agreement.

“If there is harmony, discipline, stability and the primacy of family and com

munity over the individual, then any problem can be easily addressed,” Santarita said.

The legacy plan for the Olympic and Paralympic Win

ter Games was unveiled in February. Plans aim to optimize the

venues’ designs and operations to be beneficial to the hosting regions after 2022.

“Here, you have the venues from 2008 that are going to be used in 2022 for a complete set of winter sports. This is a wonde

rful legacy story,” said Juan Antonio Samaranch, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee.

Powering all the 2022 venues using green energy while minimizing environmental impacts, while

planning for their post-Games operations, are key in venue preparation this year, Liu said.

To support the preparations financially, Beijing 2022 has signed nine domestic market

Well-tuned steps urged for poverty eradicatio

President Xi Jinping underlined on Monday the need to shore up areas of weakness and carry out more targeted pove

rty alleviation efforts in building the country into a moderately prosperous society in all respects.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chair

man of the Central Military Commission, made the remark while presiding over the fourth meeting of t

he Central Committee for Financial and Economic Affairs. Xi is head of the committee.

The meeting stressed the importance of achieving targets for poverty alleviation across the boar

d and focusing efforts on areas of extreme poverty, according to a statement released after the meeting.

It is important to tackle the remaining difficulties faced by people still confronting hard

ships in terms of their access to education, medical care, quality housing and safe drinking water after ens

uring that their basic needs for food and clothing have been met, the statement said.

It added that solving prominent environmental pollution probl

ems must be prioritized to ensure periodical targets can be achieved before 2020.

The country will host over 5,000 participants from mor

than 150 countries, including 37 heads of state or government, for the thre

e-day event starting on Thursday, Wang said, adding the forum, themed “Belt and Road Coop

eration: Shaping a Brighter Shared Future”, aims to bring about high-quality cooperation under the initiative.

President Xi Jinping will deliver a keynote speech at the op

ening ceremony of the forum, and chair the leaders’ round-table summit, Wang said.

Saying the BRI has delivered real benefits to participating countries, Wang stated the hats like “debt traps” cannot be put onto t

he head of the Belt and Road, and this is not something any participating country would recognize.

He added that international communities should base their understandings and comments about the BRI on the facts.

Trade volume between China and the countries participating in the B

RI has exceeded $6 trillion, the number of investment is over $80 billion and arou

nd 300,000 jobs have been created for the people from the countries involved in the initiative, Wang said.

This so disappointed and frustrated it that it has begun

 question whether the US is really trying to improve the DPRK-US relationship and it is wondering whe

ther its previous steps to promote engagement with Washington were the right thing to do.

In what was the most comprehensive review of Pyongyang’s recent i

nteraction with Washington, the DPRK leader put the ball decisively back in Was

hington’s court after the US president floated the idea of a third summit on Thursday.

Washington maintains unabated zeal for a deal of some sort, because ot

herwise the engagement with Pyongyang since last year

would be regarded as failure. So, more likely than not, it will try to find a way to keep the possibility of a summit alive.

But the “correct manner” Pyongyang demands is Washington forsaking its “max

imum pressure” and demonstrating sufficient goodwill by relieving, or completely rollin

g back, sanctions, putting an end to the state of war, or, even better, offering economic incentives.

But one of the first things taught to economics gradu

 students, even back in my day, is to be wary of the perils of data mining. And the middle-income tra

p is a classic example of the pitfalls of endless number crunching. Give me a database and a po

werful computer, and I can “validate” almost any economic relationship masquerading as an analytical co

njecture. There are five key reasons to dismiss the widespread diagnosis that China is ensnared in the middle-income trap.

First, a middle-income trap may not even exist. That is the conclusion of a rigorous empirical stud

y by Lant Pritchett and Lawrence Summers that covers a broad cross section of 125 economies from 1950 to 20

10. The best they could come up with is a strong tendency for growth discontinuities and mean reversion. At the recent China Development Forum in Be

ijing, Summers went further in assessing likely outcomes in rapidly growing developing economies, dubbing any

mean-reverting slowdown as merely a tendency to close a “post-miracle gap”. Needless to say, the statistical regularity of s

uch periodic growth gaps is very different from the permanent quagmire of a growth trap.
