China and the United States are engaged in striving to revive their respective country’s fortunes. US President Donald Trump’s top priority is to “make America great again”, while China’s leaders have a vision of the “Chinese Dream” of national rejuvenation.
During his first year in office, Trump did not back down from his threat to punish China with tariffs, but neither did he put it into practice. His initial priorities were domestic policies such as abolishing “Obamacare” (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act implemented by former US president Barack Obama), and introducing tax reform, while foreign policy was dominated by the threat of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s nuclear program and continuing wars in the Middle East. In addition, his top advisers were broadly against trade protectionism.
The country will continue to adopt a prudent, neutral monetary policy and a proactive fiscal policy to maintain stable economic growth while taking forceful measures to ward off financial risks, according to the draft report, which was released to reporters ahead of the session.
Six Chinese survived the legendary tragedy of the RMS Titanic, but disappeared soon after. Now a British documentarian, Arthur Jones, will uncover their stories and histories of discrimination.
Once the new immigration administration is fully functioning, it "will promote China to select talent worldwide and actively participate in international competition for talent", said Wang Huiyao, director of the Center for China and Globalization.
