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.
aggressive recruitment efforts have been made by UK universities to attract non-European students.
Meanwhile, favorable policies were announced by the UK’s Department for Education上海龙凤1314
, such as allowing international students to stay up to one year after their study visas expire.
上海龙凤1314女神会所According to the 2019 survey conducted by higher education marketing company QS, which covered more
than 75,000 students and 71 universities from around the world, 77 percent of prospective inte上海龙凤1314
rnational students claim that extending the post-study leave period for the UK’s visa offer to one year would incr
上海龙凤1314女神会所ease the likelihood of them studying in the UK. And 54 percent of students stated that feeling welcome as an inte
rnational student is one of the five important factors they consider when choosing a university.
However, Zerzan says the major reason for the UK being one of the fav上海龙凤1314
orite destinations for Chinese overseas students is that British education has a trad
ition of innovation by linking academic foundations with the needs of industry. This helps to instill in its grad上海龙凤1314女神会所
uates a need for continuous learning, an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to life as well as
strong practical and relevant skills that are appreciated by employers globally.
Zerzan adds that many foreign universities aim to recruit Ch上海龙凤1314
inese students for short-term financial gains, which might result in a mismatc
h in partners, poorer research output and possible frustrations on both sides.上海龙凤1314女神会所
And he also points out that international student mobility is not just about economic funding.
“The environment now is one where there is a mass flow of students上海龙凤1314
and lecturers – a mass flow of knowledge – and the UK has to engage in that so Chinese stud
ents are among the top academic performers and contribute greatly to scholarly ex上海龙凤1314女神会所
change and academic research and development within the UK education sectors,” he says.
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.
