Economy positioned for healthy future, experts say

China can push forward deleveraging and deal with short-term downside pressure in a coord

inated way to ensure sustainable and high-quality economic growth, experts said on Friday.

“Deleveraging does not necessarily lead to slower economic gro

wth. It depends on which approach we choose to lower the leverage,” said Hu Xia

olian, chair of the Export-Import Bank of China at the Boao Forum for Asia, which concluded on Friday.

As China’s deleveraging moves support supply-side structural reforms, del

everaging and economic growth actually go hand in hand in many aspects, Hu said.

Reducing the debt ratio of State-owned enterprises, for example, entails reforms to streng

then corporate governance and higher efficiency, she said, adding that China’s efforts to develop a stronger capital

market will not only reduce the corporate debt level by increasing equity financing but also contribute to economic growth.

The fierce clashes marked the first anniversary of the ral

llies, better known as the “Great March of Return,” and also 43 years for the Palestinian “Land Day.”

They waved Palestinian flags, chanted slogans against Israel and clashed with the Israeli sold

iers, who were stationed on the border to prevent the masses of demonstrators from approaching the fence.

The event’s goal, according to the members of the High Commission of the “Great March of Return,” is to end an Israeli

blockade that had been imposed on the Gaza Strip since Hamas’ violent takeover of the enclave in 2007.

For example, banks tend to gravitate to Frankfurt beca

?it is already a banking center in the European context, plus a clearinghouse. Also, Frankfurt has the Euro

pean central bank, which is now the regulator for all banks in Europe. So, the banks want to be closer to the major regulator,” Donoghue said.

As for asset management, insurance, and funds companies, Donoghue said, they are relocat

ing to Dublin because the city has a very broad and diversified set of capabilities in running funds and managing assets.

Andrew Pilgrim, associate partner at consultancy Ernst & Young, which is known as EY, sai

d it is probably not in the EU’s best interests to have financial services concentrated in one location.

“From policy and political perspectives, there is an argument to say that actually having a balanced financial sector across many EU jurisdi

ctions means that you have less risk concentrated in one jurisdiction,” Pilgrim said. “And it also means that you get a more balanced regu

latory and supervisory environment across all the EU member states, as opposed to all of that being focused on one.”

“If Thailand had not missed several good opportunities, the

Chinese squad would be in an even more embarrassing position.

“Chinese soccer is no longer among the best in Asia … for a long time now, we have been in th

e second tier. Although we call our league the Chinese Super League, the word ‘super’ only exists in the name.”

Retired Chinese international Li Yi, who helped Shenzhen win the 2004 CSL title, also expressed his concern online.

“The current Thailand national team players are all in their prim

e, and they will be strong opponents for Team China for the next few years,” said Li.

“Now the old generation of Chinese players is retiring, but the young guns still cannot sho

ulder the responsibility. The qualifying games for the next World Cup are coming. We must try harder!”

st time voter Eshna Kutty, 22, wants India’s next leader to giv

  a voice to all the nation’s many minorities.

  ”I am Hindu, I come from a privileged background, so for people like me, no matter which part

y comes to power, we aren’t going to face the brunt of it. The most affected are the minorities and

the poor… If a certain party comes to power, these people will face huge problems.

  ”They are the people I want to keep in mind when I choose a party.”

  For Aastha Kulshrestha, a 23-year-old law student from New Delhi, her expectation of the n

ext government is that it should not pit one group or religion against the other. “It is a great impe

diment to the growth of the nation, a nation that is democratic, socialist and a republic,” she told CNN.

  ”If you want to make a change… you vote”oung voters could have a huge influence on the

outcome. For some, casting their ballot is an exciting “coming of age” moment. But many are disenchanted.

  John Simte, 22, a law student in Bengaluru, says he is “thrilled to be a part of the world’s la

rgest democratic project.” He admits a “deep sense of apathy” amongst his peers but is nonetheless optimistic.

Yongbyon is the only publicly known complex where North

Korea produces fissile material for nuclear weapons, but experts

have long believed North Korea operates a series of covert sites that contribute to its ballistic mis

sile and nuclear weapons program.
Trump appeared to hint at the existence at least one of those during his news con

ference following the Hanoi summit, a second uranium enrichment plant. South Korean lawmaker Lee Eun-jae’s off

ice said that an “additional uranium facility” was discussed during the Hanoi summit.

While it’s unclear what or where this site is, a tea

m of North Korea open-source analysts published findings in the online news site The Diplomat in July revealing a c

overt uranium enrichment facility which the US government calls Kangsong.

CNN’s Zachary Cohen, Yoonjung Seo, Will Ripley and Sophie Jeong contributed to this report
