Although its overall economic uncertainty has increased, China’s economy still has great pote

Current policy package strong enough to counter headwinds, economist says

China has no immediate need of aggressive stimulus to support growth unless trade tensions with the United States m

Good trade ties vital at state level in US trade relatio

US states continue to value trade relations with China, despite ongoing tensions at the i

nternational level, and they hope tensions will be resolved through negotiations.

“I’m very optimistic on the China-US trade relationship,” Cyrus Habib, lieutenant governor of Washington, said in an inter

view with China Daily as he was attending the Fifth China-US Governors Forum in Lexington, Kentucky, last week.

China is the state of Washington’s top trading partner, with more than 20 percent of the state’s expor

ts going to China, and around 30 percent of its imports came from China in 2018, according to the US Census Bureau.

“It’s truly something that touches every part of our state,” said Habib. “And that went from the i

nformation communication technology sector and manufacturing sector all the way to the agricultural industry and tourism.”

The escalation in trade tensions between China and the

he United States, may lead to weaker business confidence and slower

global trade growth, which is expected to weigh on investment and exports in 2020. But in the n

ear term, as China shows positive surprise in GDP growth in the first quarter, and the macroeconomic policies hav

e taken effects on stabilizing the growth, the GDP growth rate is likely to stay at 6.2 percent, the report said.

“In response to the growth moderation and less favorable external conditions, the government in

troduced a fiscal stimulus emphasizing tax incentives,” said Martin Raiser, World Bank Country director for China.

“While the central government has fiscal space to further increase spending, if necessary, the additional stimulus should be ap

propriately funded either directly at the central level or through additional fiscal transfers to the provinces. Highe

China’s Qomolangma climbing season runs from April 10 t

At least four deaths have been blamed on crowding during the climbs, Agence France-Presse reported.

People should be well prepared to handle Qomolangma’s traffic jams which are common phenomena along climbing paths, said alpinists who had reached the summit.

“Although the news about the jam on Qomolangma this year has gone viral, people should understand that it happens every year during the brief cl

imbing window. Knowing what to do when climbers jam the narrow paths should be incl

uded in their training well in advance,” said Ma Liyamu, who reached the top of Qomolangma, the world’s ta

llest mountain at 8,848 meters, on May 22 and was also held up by the crowds on her descent.

She is the leader of a mountaineering team of three Chinese women w

ho scaled Qomolangma. They launched their expedition from Nepal, which issued 381 cli

mbing permits for the season that concludes this week. Nepal’s permits this season cost $11,000 each.

The huge domestic consumer market in China will dige

est most of the unsalable exports, and many of China’s exports will also shift to other foreign markets. The US will continu

e to purchase China-made goods if there are no substitutes, but US consumers will need to pay more, Guo said.

Research released by the International Monetary Fund on Friday showed that some of these tariffs have

been passed on to US consumers, while others have been absorbed by importers leading to lower profit margins.

US restrictions on high-tech exports to China will push up Washington’s trade deficit with China, and

rising prices could also reverse the low inflation in the US. Meanwhile, any speculative trading on the Chin

ese currency amid its depreciation pressure will “inevitably suffer from a huge loss”, Guo said in his speech.

Weaker economic growth puts at risk essential invest

ments in areas such as education, health, climate change adaptation and sustainable infrastructure.

The growth outlook in all major developed economies and most developin

g regions has weakened due to a confluence of both domestic and external factors, the report said.

Following an expansion of 3 percent in 2018, world gross product growth is now projected to moderat

e to 2.7 percent in 2019 and 2.9 percent in 2020, reflecting a downward revision from the forecasts released in January.

The report identifies several downside risks that could trigger a sharper or more prolonged growth slowdown, potentially infl

icting significant damage on development progress. Those risks include a further escalation in trade te

nsions, a sudden deterioration in financial conditions, and the accelerating effects of climate change.
