Foreign Direct Investment in China

http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment-in-china Foreign Direct Investment in China By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Investors are looking outside of China for places to do business and foreign direct investment in China is falling off. According to the online Wall Street Journal China attracted less foreign direct investment in May compared with a year ago, according to new figures, amid concerns among some foreign investors about less-favorable operating conditions in the world's second-largest economy. The issues commonly cited as foreign direct investment in China which decline are those which we have noted previously. China has a less than transparent economy. The rule of law is arbitrary to say the least as the old Communist Party holds on to power. As China's work force ages the price of labor is going up. And the long expected Chinese real estate bubble may still collapse leading to long term economic stagnation similar to what happened with Japan. Meanwhile, other nations are seeing more investment as foreign direct investment in Chile has nearly doubled in early 2014 versus the year before. According to Forbes online Foreign direct investment in Chile rose 82% in January to April versus the same period of 2013, according to the Chilean central bank. How Can You Short China? If you believe that a stock is going down you can short it. How can you short China? You can certainly invest elsewhere but is there a way that you can profit if the Chinese economy tapers off as investment goes elsewhere? You can buy and sell Chinese stocks on American stock exchanges using American Depository Receipts. Level I ADRs are subject to the same rules as US stocks in terms of reporting and transparency requirements. If you believe that one of these stocks may fall substantially in price you might consider buying put options on that stock, wait for the hammer to fall and then cash out. Fundamental Analysis of Business Investment Opportunities How to evaluate a country for investment is to start with reliable sources of information such as the World Bank and by all means visit the country in question. The World Bank is a repository of excellent information regarding investing offshore. Whether you are contemplating foreign direct investment or buying stocks via ADRs, the World Bank has very useful information to help evaluate a country for investment. A useful page of results from the World Bank business project is the ease of doing business index page which ranks nations from 1 to 189 for a composite of factors that make doing business easy or difficult. Ease of doing business ranks economies from 1 to 189, with first place being the best. A high ranking (a low numerical rank) means that the regulatory environment is conducive to business operation. The index averages the country's percentile rankings on 10 topics covered in the World Bank's Doing Business. The ranking on each topic is the simple average of the percentile rankings on its component indicators. The Likely Case Foreign direct investment in China has fallen off this month and may fall off more. But, the Chinese economy is not going to collapse. A more likely scenario is that the government will make changes sufficient to stay in power, increase investment at home and do things to decrease their reliance on exports. Foreign direct investment in China in the future will likely have more to do with selling to the Chinese than making things in China to sell to the world. http://youtu.be/51YzlDqZOaA

The 15th Industrialists’ Conference‏- “Foreign Direct Investment in GCC and its Impact on Industry”
 
18:03
The 15th Industrialists’ Conference‏ “Foreign Direct Investment in GCC and its Impact on Industry” GCC countries have achieved large financial surpluses driven by high oil and gas prices, the two main sources of income for these six countries’ GDP. In addition, these countries’ balance of payments recorded surpluses that boosted their cash reserves and foreign investments. Therefore, the desired foreign investments are not only about financial capital, but they also encompass foreign capital in the form of advanced technology, research and development, knowledge-based industries, marketing, organization and innovative administration in various production and services fields. The objective is to promote high-tech Gulf industries to achieve acceptable levels of competitiveness and reinforce global networking at the levels of value chains and demand. Specialists’ opinions vis-à-vis foreign investments do not necessarily converge: some of them consider that these flows have positive impacts strengthening the economies of target countries, others disagree while several researchers detail both positive and negative impacts. Thus, in order to determine the impact of foreign investments on Gulf economies, applied economic studies are undoubtedly needed to analyse their influence according to economic indicators of Gulf countries. Industrialists’ Conference Background Information The Gulf Industrialists’ Conference hosted biennially, alternating among by GCC member states, is one of GOIC’s most important achievements since its foundation in 1976. Since the first conference held in Doha in 1985, they have been contributing in developing private and public industrial sectors in GCC countries. Each conference tackles a specific topic influencing the development of industries in the region through a series of papers delivered by international experts and specialists. In fact, previous conferences resulted in recommendations that helped in developing industrial plans in GCC countries, notably in the area of the industrial development strategy. Decision makers, officials, businessmen and industrialists are all interested in this conference. In its 14th version “Industrial Exports: Opportunities and Challenges”, the recommendations were to actively work on adopting policies and procedures aiming at facilitating the flow of Gulf exports to strengthen trade activities between Gulf countries and to benefit from GCC and Yemen seaports in addition to the existing land border points in support of Gulf industrial exports.

FDI destination
 
01:41
The FDI Model developed by Ronald Wall at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) / Erasmus University Rotterdam. Animation was created with Alex Levering. This 3D-GIS animation depicts total foreign direct investment (FDI) received by 1200 cities around the world (2003 - 2014). It is also know as destination FDI. It is based on data by fDi Markets, ORBIS and IHS-Erasmus University. FDI is the investment made by multinational firms in particular cities, into production, control, service and marketing facilities in other cities around the world. These flows of capital tie world cities together into an extremely complex but hierarchic network. FDI is one of the key indicators of a cities integration into the world economy and it explains about 50% of global GDP. These foreign investments are in most cases beneficial to urban development, but can sometimes have a negative impact. Through econometric and GIS analysis I aim to measure the effect of FDI on global cities, or alternatively try to measure the factors which attract these investment to cities. Based on these outcomes I develop urban recommendations and policy how to support a city's economic growth.and make it more competitive. In this globe we see that the world economy is not becoming more homogeneous, but instead that the geographic distribution of FDI is very uneven. It is evident that the global north holds most investment, while the majority of the world's population is in the global south. It is also seen that the highest density of investment is in Europe, North America and Pacific Asia. Understanding the urban determinants of FDI flows (for different industrial sectors) is one of the key challenges in developing truly sustainable cities. Only when we address cities as being part of complex regional and global systems can we really take on this challenge. It is this economic system that forms the backbone of the predicaments of climate change and rising inequality at local, regional and global levels. With big data availability and available algorithms an era has arrived where it becomes possible to technically and politically address the functional performance and structural geography of this disproportionately distributed worldwide system. This research forms part of the upcoming UN-Habitat "State of African Cities 2017" report. This work forms part of the Urban Competitiveness and Resilience (UCR) department at the Institute of Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) / Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), The Netherlands. The UCR team consists of Ronald Wall (Department Head), Monserrat Budding-Polo Ballinas, Dorcas Nthoki, Marina Salimgareeva, Taslim Alade.

Development Cooperation Report 2014: To know more, you can subscribe to this list: http://eepurl.com/PDb8T. What is the Development Co-operation Report (DCR)? The DCR is a yearly report led by the Chair of the Developemnt Assistance Committee and one of the OECD's yearly flagship publications. Every year, the DCR addresses an important challenge for the international development community and provides practical guidance and recommendations on how to tackle it. Moreover, it reports the profiles and performance of Development Assistance Committee (DAC) development cooperation providers and presents DAC statistics on official and private resource flows. The current cycle of reports is designed to prepare for 2015 and beyond. The Development Co-operation Report 2014 is the second in a trilogy (2013-15) focusing on "Global Development Co-operation Post-2015: Managing Interdependence". The DCR 2013 looked at how to end poverty by 2030 http://www.oecd.org/dac/dcr2013.htm. What is the background to the 2014 report? At the Development Assistance Committee's High-Level Meeting (HLM) in December 2012, DAC Ministers called for modernizing the DAC statistical system and devising a new, broader measure of total official support for development. The 2014 Development Co-operation Report (DCR) complements work to fulfill this mandate by exploring the many potential sources of development finance, as well as the diverse means of mobilising additional resources to fund the implementation of the post-2015 goals. This will include a focus on mobilising financial resources from the private sector. The DCR 2014 will do this in three parts: In part one, the DCR introduces a number of different sources of finance currently available to developing countries: from official development assistance (ODA), to foreign direct investment and resources from institutional investors, to domestic revenues, philatrophy and resources raised by civil society, as well as remittances. Part two discusses practical means of mobilising further resources: for example, smart use of ODA to leverage additional resources and mitigate risks; policy reforms to improve the environment for investment in developing countries, mobilize domestic resources and combat illicit flows; and innovative mechanisms that can generate additional resources to finance sustainable development. In part three, the DCR explores how to mobilise resources to finance the provision of global public goods: for example, to combat climate change, promote peace and security, and create a fair and equal trading system. The Development Co-operation Report 2014 will be launched at the DAC Senior Level Meeting in October 2014. Till then, subscribe for updates here: http://eepurl.com/PDb8T.

How to Measure Economic Development | Measuring Economic Development | Measures of Development
 
50:15
Measuring Development How exactly do you do that???? What will do, take a look first on………. We going to learn that how to measure and quantifying economic growth, economic development and so on. This is really the quantification of the concept of economic development. Initially when economics development as subject, the Mercantilist were the first people who use to think about it in the 16 – 18 century, according to them economic development or economic growth were measured by the accumulation of bullion i.e. gold, silver, and other precious metals. Then came the time of Physiocratic belong to 18th century. They identify the growth of a country with agriculture growth and land base activities so a country agriculture output was the indicator of economic development according to them. Then came the classical era belong to Adam smith, in his wealth of nation he defines wealth of nation as the general eco progress the national income as developed by land, labor, capital with improve technology and increasing division of labor. The distribution of national income the growth of national income, the national income became imp indicator of economic develop. Also population began to grow at this time because the classical economists will also concerned with the role of population. They develop the additional concept of per capita national income. By late 19th century national income was an accepted indicator of the economic status of a country. Most countries when they talk of economic growth, economic prosperity etc they talk of per capita national income. It is not a complete solution, after all it is an average solution. It is does not take in account inequality, inequity dispersion and so on. We do not say that either of these measures whether taken in nominal term whether adjusted for differences in purchasing for none of them are perfect. To measure development one could be well aware from Foreign Direct Investment, Trade Policy etc. There are various measures of national income and economic growth. GDP and GNP are two of these single indicators. GDP considers all output that has been domestically produced, whereas GNP, now often referred to as GNI (or Gross National Income) takes Infant mortality rate is the number of infants dying before reaching one year of age, per 1,000 live births in a given year. Mortality rate; infant (per 1;000 live births) in Pakistan was last measured at 65.80 in 2015, according to the World Bank. A composite index is a function of variables and weights that maps attainments in a variety of attributes into a single real number, which may have cardinal meaning or be merely ordinal. Yet in the early 1970s one empirical fact caught the attention of economists and international agencies: thirty years of outstanding economic growth performance had been accompanied by notable rising dualism within nations and a failure to reduce poverty. This gave rise to a change of emphasis in the conceptualization of development. It was time to measure development more directly, paying attention to the evolution of unemployment, poverty, and inequality. An emerging new approach would emphasize the need to refocus development on removing mass deprivation and ensuring that all human beings met their basic needs. The Basic Needs Approach advocated a parsimonious set of core indicators covering six areas: nutrition, basic education, health, sanitation, water supply and housing. A few years later, the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) proposed an index of socio-economic development designed by McGranahan et al. (1972). The index was composed of nineteen indicators, including several indicators of economic development (defined as GNP per capita) alongside various indicators of structural change (such as manufacturing share of GNP), some of education (such as combined primary and secondary enrolment), and two of health (per capita-per day consumption of animal protein, and life expectancy at birth). The scaling and weighting of the variables was based on a statistical procedure. This index was expressly intended to fill in the gaps of GNP per capita as a measure of development. https://youtu.be/b5zp_EJ4LY4 https://youtu.be/xj31enuOS9I -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Eid ul Fitr Celebrations Around the World مختلف ممالک میں عید الفطر کس طرح منائی جاتی ہے؟؟؟" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EmYRkmGm_8 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Taiwan’s economy faces major challenges as both industries and investment shift overseas
 
06:03
Taiwan''s exports are expected to shrink this year, leading many to forecast economic growth of around 2 percent. While the government says poor economic data is mainly due to international conditions, some believe a more serious industrial transformation is taking place. This factory at the Changhua Coastal Industrial Park produces synthetic leather. Many of its long-term downstream customers have moved away from Taiwan, making business increasingly difficult.Chen Yung-nengXing He Industry GM At the outset, we shouldn’t encourage them to move but to instead upgrade their technology and production. The government hasn’t been very effective in cultivating this industry, so many middle and downstream companies have rushed to Southeast Asia or China to survive. Li Mou-dian Xing He Industry ChairmanWith the domestic market shrinking, downstream manufacturers have left, causing a decline in the demand for synthetic leather. This means we have to dedicate more human resources to developing foreign markets.The latest case indicating Taiwan''s industrial shift is the Formosa Plastics Group, which plans to invest US$15 billion overseas in the next three years. In the past, some 75 percent of this company’s investment was in Taiwan, though this could fall to 20 percent. Kenneth LinNTU Economics Professor In the past, capital that moved overseas was mostly SMEs in the manufacturing industry. Now, it’s big companies with more capital at stake. When the companies move overseas, so do their investments.The central bank chose the anniversary of President Ma Ying-jeou’s seventh term of office to announce that the first quarter of the year saw a record high net outflow of funds.Wang Jiann-chyuan Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research Insurance companies need to generate a fixed rate of 4 percent each year. Taiwan doesn’t have many good financial products, so they invest tens of billions of US dollars overseas, which leads to this account deficit. This is the main reason behind this problem.Taiwan’s failure to keep money in the country is compounded by the fact that foreign investment is also unlikely to be attracted to Taiwan.Wang Jiann-chyuan Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research In 2013, we only attracted foreign direct investment of about US$3.7 billion while Singapore attracted US$63.7 billion. This is a major warning sign. Among Asian countries, our foreign direct investment only surpasses North Korea and Pakistan. In the past, we compared with the United Kingdom, United States, Singapore and South Korea, but now we only compare with Pakistan and North Korea. This indicates that Taiwan''s investment environment is actually getting worse. Taking a tour of this factory, Xing He Industry Chairman Li Mou-dian says the only way to overcome these challenges is innovation.Li Mou-dianXing He Industry ChairmanThis is an example of traditional PVC material. This is our newly developed environmentally friendly TPU material. When you produce PVC, there is a strong smell. TPU is odorless and non-toxic.Li said it took years of research and development to create this environmentally friendly synthetic leather. PVC’s resistance to decomposition as well as the noxious gases it produces when incinerated make it environmentally unfriendly.Li Mou-dian Xing He Industry ChairmanThe most important aspect of TPU is the fact that it’s environmentally friendly. We managed to make it decompose in little more than 10 years. PVC can’t dissolve, so it can last for 10,000 years, leading to many environmental problems. TPU, in addition to conforming with environmental trends, can also resist cold temperatures and is easily malleable, making it preferable to PVC. Despite these advantages, Li faces many problems. Li Mou-dianXing He Industry ChairmanWhen we export to other countries, we face the burden of paying extra tariffs that other countries don’t have to pay. Not being included in some free trade agreements is a hindrance to our business. Wang Jiann-chyuan Chung-Hua Institution for Economic ResearchFirst of all, (Taiwan’s) market is too small. Secondly, there have been too few free trade agreements. Taiwan must find a ways to use TPP and RCEP to gradually increase our reach. Although there are many challenges to overcome in the future, Li hopes that he can do enough to be able to remain in Taiwan.Li Mou-dian Xing He Industry ChairmanI think industries establishing deep roots in Taiwan require consensus on the part of everyone. If future issues are not resolved, it could create a lot of pressure for everyone.Kenneth LinNTU Economics DepartmentThose companies that have remained in Taiwan this long and have continued to survive have pursued a unique development path. I just want to say the government should not ignore these companies. Their ability to endure doesn’t mean they need special care. We spend so much time thinking about creating ...

The objective is to promote high-tech Gulf industries to achieve acceptable levels of competitiveness and reinforce global networking at the levels of value chains and demand. Specialists’ opinions vis-à-vis foreign investments do not necessarily converge: some of them consider that these flows have positive impacts strengthening the economies of target countries, others disagree while several researchers detail both positive and negative impacts. Thus, in order to determine the impact of foreign investments on Gulf economies, applied economic studies are undoubtedly needed to analyse their influence according to economic indicators of Gulf countries.

The 15th Industrialists’ Conference‏ - “Foreign Direct Investment in GCC and its Impact on Industry”

In addition, these countries’ balance of payments recorded surpluses that boosted their cash reserves and foreign investments.

Commerce Minister: China Vows to Become Strong, High-quality Trading Power

China vows to build itself into a strong trading power in all aspects by 2050 guided by innovation and high-quality development, Chinese commerce minister said Sunday. China is a big country in economics and trade in view of its leading indicators in consumption, trade, foreign direct investment and overseas direct investment, but it is far from a strong trader, said Zhong Shan, Chinese Commerce Minister, at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual legislative session. The minister said in order to become a strong trading power, China must follow the innovation-driven and high-quality development path. The minister outlined one goal, six major tasks and eight action plans in the coming five years to make China a strong trading power in the world. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20180311/8075591.shtml#!language=1 Welcome to subscribe us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cctvnewscontent/ Video on Demand: www.cctvplus.com If you are in demand of this video footage, please contact with our business development team via email: [email protected]

Massaging GDP (Gross Domestic Product) Figures (ENGLISH, Macedonian subtitles)
 
10:25
The formula to calculate GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is this: GDP (Gross Domestic Product) = Consumption + investment + government expenditure + net exports (exports minus imports) = Wages + rents + interest + profits + non-income charges + net foreign factor income earned But the GDP figure is vulnerable to "creative accounting": 1. The weight of certain items, sectors, or activities is reduced or increased in order to influence GDP components, such as industrial production. Developing countries often alter the way critical components of GDP like industrial production are tallied. 2. Goods in inventory are included in GDP although not yet sold. Thus, rising inventories, a telltale sign of economic ill-health, actually increases the GDP! 3. If goods produced are financed with credits and loans, GDP will be artificially HIGH (inflated). 4. In some countries, PLANS and INTENTIONS to invest are counted, recorded, and booked as actual investments. This practice is frowned upon (and landed quite a few corporate managers in the gaol), but is still widespread in the shoddier and shadier corners of the globe. 5. GDP figures should be adjusted for inflation (real GDP as opposed to nominal GDP). To achieve that, the calculation of the GDP deflator is critical. But the GDP deflator is a highly subjective figure, prone, in developing countries, to reflecting the government's political needs and predilections. 6. What currency exchange rates were used? By selecting the right "points in time", GDP figures can go up and down by up to 2%! 7. Healthcare expenditures, agricultural subsidies, government aid to catastrophe-stricken areas form a part of the GDP. Thus, for instance, by increasing healthcare costs, the government can manipulate GDP figures. 8. Net exports in many developing countries are negative (in other words, they maintain a trade deficit). How can the GDP grow at all in these places? Even if consumption and investment are strongly up - government expenditures are usually down (at the behest of multilateral financial institutions) and net exports are down. It is not possible for GDP to grow vigorously in a country with a sizable and ballooning trade deficit. 9. The projections of most international, objective analysts and international economic organizations usually tend to converge on a GDP growth figure that is often lower than the government's but in line with the long-term trend. These figures are far better indicators of the true state of the economy. Statistics Bureaus in developing countries are often under the government's thumb and run by political appointees.

On the last day of their three-day visit, World Bank officials promised further help with Myanmar's electricity supply and other basic needs. "The World Bank group has been working actively with its partners to clear the arrears of Myanmar," Jin-Yong Cai, Chief executive of International Finance Corporation (IFC), an arm of the World Bank, said during a news conference in Yangon on Tuesday. The World Bank and the Asian Development Bank cleared Myanmar's outstanding debt to them of about 900 (m) million US dollars with a bridge loan from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation on Jan. 27. It allows them to make new development loans to Myanmar. The deal was a major breakthrough for Myanmar, with the new loans likely to go to upgrading its dilapidated infrastructure, including electricity and ports. The knock-on effect would be to bring in more foreign direct investment. Myanmar's reformist president has said that his country's recent clearing of (b) billions of dollars of foreign debt is its first step toward ending its least-developed nation status. According to Axel van Trotsenburg, World Bank East Asia and Pacific vice president, one of the main challenges was to start "providing electricity for all." "At this stage only 25 or 30 percent of the population have access to electricity and unfortunately many people in the rural areas don't have access," he said. Myanmar, then called Burma, was declared a least-developed nation by the United Nations in 1987. The status is given to countries with the lowest indicators of socio-economic development according to the UN's Human Development Index. Myanmar had one of the region's strongest economies in the 1950s, but plunged into a decline after a coup in 1962 instituted military rule with a socialist bent.

Animation -- Riding the crest of a global commodity wave
 
05:00
Riding the crest of a global commodity wave, natural resources have fuelled a decade of rapid growth in Africa, but too few Africans have benefited. Infographics in this animation are drawn from this year's Africa Progress Report, "Equity in Extractives - Stewarding Africa's natural resources for all". Riding the crest of a global commodity wave, natural resources have fuelled a decade of rapid growth in Africa. The continent has now joined the world league of high growth economies. In the first decade of this century, sub-Saharan Africa was one of the fastest growing regions in the world. It suffered the impact of the 2008 financial crisis less than other regions too. Resource-rich countries such as Sierra Leone, Niger, and Angola also grew faster than China and India. With significant oil, gas, and mineral reserves, Africa's resource-fuelled growth is expected to continue. By one estimate, the continent hosts 30 percent of the world's mineral reserves, including significant proportions of gold, platinum, diamonds, and manganese. South Africa alone produces 77 percent of the world's platinum, while the Democratic Republic of the Congo provides 53 percent of its cobalt. Africa's oil, gas, and minerals, have brought increasing foreign investment and revenue to the continent. Indeed, private flows, including foreign direct investment, have been outpacing international aid and setting Africa on the road to self-sufficiency. In practice, though, too few Africans have benefitted from the natural resources beneath our soils and waters. Four of sub-Saharan Africa's top oil producers have disappointing human development indicators. After a decade of the world's fastest growth rates, for example, Equatorial Guinea now has a higher level of income per capita than Poland. But three quarters of the population live in poverty and its child mortality rates are among the highest in the world. Children in Equatorial Guinea are 20 times more likely to die before their 5th birthday than in Poland. Meanwhile, Angola's economy has also been growing rapidly for the past decade. It now has a higher income per capita than Vietnam, but Vietnamese people can expect to live almost a quarter century longer than their counterparts in Angola. This year's Africa Progress Report looked at these issues in more detail to see why Africans do not benefit more from their natural resources. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo for example we examined five mineral deals between 2010 and 2012 that involved the systematic undervaluation of the country's mineral concessions and sale to unknown buyers. These deals cost the country the equivalent of US$ 1.36 billion, roughly double the combined annual budgets of health and education. Meanwhile, just one single technique to pay less tax -- known as trade mispricing -- has become a major issue for the continent. By mispricing the value of goods that it takes from a country, a multinational can effectively limit its tax obligations. The scale of this trade mispricing has become unethical and unacceptable. Africa now loses more through trade mispricing than it receives in either international aid or foreign direct investment. The Africa Progress Panel remains upbeat about the prospects for Africa. We see good momentum for change among governments, multinationals, and the international community too. African countries are leading the charge to become compliant with the Extractive industries Transparency Initiative, for example. The Africa Mining Vision offers a compelling agenda for change and was produced by the African Union and the Economic Commission for Africa. Africa's natural resources offer excellent opportunity to lift millions out of poverty. But Africa can still benefit from better policies and leadership. This year's Africa Progress Report recommends policies for African governments, multinationals, and the international community alike. Among their recommendations, the Panel recommends that: African governments should process minerals, publish contracts, and target the poor with their public spending. The international community should clamp down on tax evasion and avoidance, and tackle money laundering. International business should clarify their ownership structures, disclose payments to governments, and combat transfer pricing. Visit our website to find out more. www.africaprogresspanel.org [ENDS]

Region, a door to global trade: SME Competitiveness Outlook 2017
 
08:23
Regional trade is the most common form of trade for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The SME Competitiveness Outlook 2017 report finds that deep regional trade agreements help deliver inclusive growth. These agreements attract value chain activity and narrow the competitiveness gap between large and small firms. When investment is part of such agreements, the impact is stronger. The report provides targeted advice for policymakers, businesses, and trade and investment support institutions. It combines data analysis, case studies, academic insights and opinions by thought leaders.
Pulling the Breaks: Regulating Chinese FDI in the EU
 
01:16:30
ISDP Forum September 29th Last year alone Chinese investors spent more than the last 10 years combined on acquisitions and FDI in Europe. Europe is now the principal recipient of Chinese FDI and receives double the amount that the United States receives. For many observers, this investment surge has given rise to concerns regarding the lack of protection for intellectual property rights and excessive government interference in China’s economy. They argue that the EU should adopt a more a stringent FDI screening process. On September 13th, the EU Commission announced that they, "are not naive supporters of free exchange" and will introduce a new framework for FDI screening. To coincide with this, ISDP is planning a panel discussion on the 29th of September to discuss and debate how these new FDI regulations might function, if they are necessary and who are the winners and losers from them. Panelists: - Bruno Maçães, Senior Adviser, Flint Global; former Minister for Europe in the Portuguese government - Angela Stanzel, Policy Fellow and editor of China Analysis at the European Council on Foreign Relations - Carolina Dackö, Specialist Counsel, Mannheimer Swartling To participate in our upcoming events, check our website: www.isdp.eu

DMCC: An award - winning Free Zone for SME's
 
05:48
DMCC awarded best MENA and UAE Free Zone for SMEs - Two awards honoured by fDi Magazine for the DMCC Free Zone’s industry leading services and support for its member companies Dubai, UAE; 9 June 2014: DMCC, the Government of Dubai Authority with a mandate to enhance Dubai’s position as a global gateway for commodity trade and enterprise, has been named by fDi Magazine as Free Zone of the Year for SMEs - Middle East & Africa and Free Zone of the Year for SMEs – UAE in their Middle East Free Zones of the Year rankings and awards for 2014 / 2015. Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, DMCC, commented: “Small to Medium size Enterprises (SMEs) are the key driving force behind the growth of the economies of the UAE and the region. At DMCC we are passionate about creating a sustainable and optimal business environment for SMEs to further enhance this growth and support His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai’s vision to position Dubai as the global destination for SMEs.” Receiving two awards, the fDi Free Zone of the Year for SMEs – Middle East and Africa; and the fDi Free Zone of the Year for SMEs – United Arab Emirates is a strong indicator of Dubai’s and DMCC’s leading role in attracting fDi to the region. As the largest and fastest growing free zone in the UAE with over 8,700 member companies, 95 per cent of which are new to Dubai and 70 per cent of which are SMEs, we will continue to ensure businesses have access to everything they require to succeed, trade with confidence and access new markets.” While 70 per cent of today’s members are SMEs representing every sector ranging from Just Falafel – the biggest falafel franchise in the world; to acdc – a LED design and technology provider; to NSI Gulf – a fast growing technology consultant firm and regional leader in Salesforce implementation; through to Unisteel International – the global steel trader; the DMCC Free Zone is also home to multi-nationals such as American Express, Diamdel (DeBeers), Glencore Xstrata, Harley Davidson, Louis Dreyfus, LVMH, Nutricia Danone and Rio Tinto Alcan. "In our inaugural Free Zone of the Year awards for the Middle East and North Africa, it gives us great pleasure to recognise DMCC as the top free zone in both the UAE and the broader region for attractiveness for SMEs. The UAE sets the standard for free zones worldwide, so excelling in the world's most competitive country for free zones takes dedication, excellence and a strategic vision as well an eye for detail and strong customer service. The fast rate at which new companies are registering at DMCC is testament to its successful approach despite the many other alternatives that companies moving to Dubai are presented with. While DMCC caters to companies of all sizes and its appeal is not restricted solely to smaller companies, our judging panel felt its offering for SMEs is particularly strong”, said Courtney Fingar, Editor-in-Chief, fDi Magazine. DMCC also recently announced its ‘Burj 2020 District’ plans which will feature the world’s tallest commercial tower as centrepiece, the ‘Burj 2020’. The ‘Burj 2020 District’ is being constructed as a direct result of customer demand in particular from large regional corporates, multi-nationals and multi-business entities. Businesses around the globe look for a place where they can expand, access new markets and conduct their operations in a world-class, secure, well integrated environment. DMCC provides this infrastructure with its Free Zone. There are today over 85,000 people working and living within the DMCC Free Zone in Dubai. With an average of 200 companies choosing to join DMCC each month and a 94% retention rate, DMCC remains the UAE’s largest and fastest growing free zone with over 8,700 member companies. fDi Magazine is a specialist investment title published by The Financial Times Group and it conducts this global survey every two years. The rankings are considered the most prestigious free zone rankings around the globe and are based on several criteria such as outstanding performance year on year, growth and expansion plans and presence of high growth industries. The rankings have a particular focus on financial aspects and other such incentives including tax exemptions offered, transport services, infrastructure development and economic potential. As winner of the Free Zone of the Year for SMEs - Middle East & Africa and the Free Zone of the Year for SMEs – UAE awards, DMCC will now enter the global rankings to be announced in October.

The Global Innovation Policy Index, produced by ITIF in conjunction with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, assesses the effectiveness of the innovation policies of 55 countries using 84 indicators grouped into seven core innovation policy areas: 1) trade and foreign direct investment; 2) science and R&D; 3) domestic market competition; 4) intellectual property rights; 5) information and communications technology; 6) government procurement; and 7) high-skill immigration. The Index, which ranks almost all EU, OECD, APEC, and BRIC economies, categorizes countries as either upper tier, upper-mid tier, lower-mid tier, or lower tier on each of the seven core innovation policy areas and overall, and highlights best practices in innovation policy development amongst these countries that other nations can learn from.

Vietnam - An Emerging Economy to Watch Out For
 
02:28
Last year, the stock market of Vietnam outshined the counterparts of various other emerging economies and a similar trend is expected through the current year. When various economic performance indicators of Thailand and Indonesia were deteriorating, Vietnam’s were shining brighter. There are expectations for the Vietnamese market to outperform its neighboring countries’ in the current year. More than a third of the 700 companies listed in the stock exchange have their stocks traded at a price to earnings ratio between 6 and 7, while others feature a dividend yield of over 9%. Some companies even have a cash position that is almost as high as the market capitalization. Several factors have pointed towards a healthier economy. The Vietnam Ho Chi Minh Stock Index (VN-Index) turned out to be one of Southeast Asia’s top performers last year. The trade deficit of the country showed continuous improvements and a strong inflow of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) greatly favored the economy. Strong growth was seen in the manufacturing sector as foreign direct investment reached over $20 Billion last year and more than 70 percent of it was invested into the manufacturing sector. Reasonable labor costs coupled with a stabilizing local currency are expected to further increase the foreign investment. The stable growth rate, respectable levels of FDI and low inflation rates have helped the manufacturing sector developed greatly when compared to other economies such as Indonesia and India, which have a slower growth rate due to the high rates of inflation. The economy of Vietnam is expected to grow at a rate of over 6.2% in the current year as it registered a growth of around 5.8% last year. The inflation rates are also expected to remain below 5%. Various economists have claimed this to be a healthy growth rate for an economy like that of Vietnam. One of the major factors that have been affecting growth adversely over the years is the presence of nonperforming loans and bad debts in the banking system. In order to recover these debts, the government employed the services of the state-owned Vietnam Asset Management Company, which recovered large amounts of debts from various defaulters. The government is expected to give more powers to the Asset Management Company in order to clean up the banking system of nonperforming loans. The bad debt ratio is expected to fall down to 3% by the end of this year. With the economy on the rise for past few years and the trend expected to continue into future, Vietnam is a business opportunity to get high returns on your investment.

UN Issues Warning China's OBOR could drag South Asia into Debt Trap
 
05:31
The United Nations, close on the heels of OBOR Summit between May 14-16, has raised a red flag over economic, financial, social and environmental risks of China's Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) across a number of countries that are part of the mega connectivity project. A recently concluded UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific Study (UNESCAP) has warned of financial risks in countries in south and central Asia where China's announced investment value under BRI is high compared to the relative size of the economy of the recipient country. The $15 billion China-Uzbekistan investment deal signed in late 2013 is roughly equivalent to a quarter of Uzbekistan's GDP. Similarly, the $37 billion China-Kazakhstan cooperation agreement signed in late 2014 and early 2015 and the $46 billion China-Pakistan agreement in April 2015 each represent over a fifth of GDP level in Kazakhstan and Pakistan, according to the UN study. China's commitment to Pakistan has now reached $ 62 billion. Similarly, the $24 billion China-Bangladesh agreement in October 2016 is equivalent to almost 20% of Bangladesh's GDP. "External account indicators for some of these economies are relatively weak. In Kazakhstan, the current account deficit amounted to about 6% of GDP in 2016, while external debt stood at over 80% of GDP in 2015. In Pakistan, foreign external reserves are rather small at about 4 months of imports in early 2017," said the report. "Relatively easy access to large foreign loans for infrastructure projects, even if most of them tend to be on a concessional basis, can lead to risks through a slight deterioration in trade balance, undermining macroeconomic and balance of payments stability in small economies with underdeveloped financial markets and less effective debt management," the study said regarding the nature of the Chinese loans. It is no secret that Sri Lanka has run into a huge debt trap by welcoming Chinese funded projects. Sri Lankan debt exceeds $60 billion, more than 10 percent of that is owed to the Chinese. To resolve its debt crisis, the Sri Lankan government agreed to convert its debt into equity. This may lead to Chinese ownership of the projects finally. The financing for BRI or OBOR related infrastructure projects will require large scale capital investments. An estimate by the Chinese government suggests total investment by China would amount to about $4 trillion. The McKinsey Global Institute (2016) and the Asian Development Bank (2017) estimated that infrastructure development needs in Asia are about $1.6 to $1.7 trillion per year on average in the years to 2030, according to UNESCAP study. "On the social front, displacement and marginalization of local communities and indigenous groups is possible as a result of land grabbing and changing communities. Similarly, workers in industries that will no longer be competitive after opening up of markets could be marginalized. Poor working conditions, especially for migrant workers and construction workers in remote areas, are also a concern...More broadly, social unrest and ethnic conflicts could escalate in societies and areas where management of BRI projects is viewed as unfair and lacking a people-centred approach. Finally, despite notable economic benefits, it is not clear whether such gains will be inclusive," the study underlined. On the environmental front, construction and operation of large-scale infrastructure projects under BRI is likely to result in land use changes and poorer air and water quality. In addition to the direct environmental impacts, new infrastructure, particularly transport infrastructure, may also cause indirect environmental impacts by facilitating access to areas previously reserved for environmental purposes, such as protected forest, the UN study said. "Simply channelling exorbitant amounts of money into other countries is not going to be enough for realising the New Silk Route. The implementation of the initiative calls for something more — understanding and adapting to the internal processes of BRI participants...Like a chain, the Belt and Road is as strong as its weakest link and public perceptions toward China can become an existential issue for Beijing's ambitious initiative," said Daniel Balazs, a graduate from China's Tongji University, Shanghai, while writing a piece for Australia-based East Asia Forum.

Is AMERICA in DECLINE as the SUPERPOWER of the WORLD? - KJ Vids
 
13:21
Since the end of WWII, the U.S. has been the central player in the international system, leading in the creation of new international organisations like the United Nations, NATO, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. American diplomacy has dominated multinational agreements on trade, climate, regional security and arms control. Since the Soviet Union officially collapsed in 1991 there is no doubt that America has been the unilateral superpower of the world. But now not only do China and Russia contest America’s global role, a growing number of other countries are asserting an independent and increasingly influential role in regional economic and security developments. I’m Kasim, this is KJ Vids and in this video, we will look at America’s decline as the superpower of the world. Would you like to support our channel?

Surviving a Stock Market Crash
 
04:13
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/surviving-a-stock-market-crash Surviving a Stock Market Crash What is the trick to surviving a stock market crash? One of our readers posed this question after we gave our thoughts recently about the Next Big Stock Market Crash. It is our opinion that there are a lot of hidden economic factors in China that could drag that economy down and take much of Asia and the developing world along for the roller coaster ride. The trick to surviving a stock market crash is to anticipate and prepare. As such we have written about issues such as when to sell stocks and following direct foreign investment as a means of seeing where the smart money is going these days. As the US Federal Reserve reduces its quantitative easing stimulus program, interest rates are going up in the USA and taking the value of the dollar along for the ride. This is one of the factors that are pulling money out of so called developing economies. Our first suggestion for surviving a stock market crash is to avoid being over extended as some of these economies falter. What stocks will be hurt as the global economy weakens, China's real estate bubble bursts, and countries that depend largely on raw material exports to China see their orders dry up? These are not just foreign stocks but companies like Caterpillar, CAT, that depend on global construction projects for their success. And we end with the reminder that more often than not, cash is king. Panama Instead of Brazil If you are going to invest offshore you need to do your own research. Lots of folks rushed in and invested in Brazil when things were hot and now are licking their wounds. As China orders dry up Brazil is hurting. A lot of foreign direct investment just up and walked away. ($35 Billion invested in 2007 and $3 Billion pulled out in 2012) On the other hand the little country of Panama had foreign direct investment of $1.8 Billion in 2007 and $1.6 Billion in 2012. Panama has the Panama Canal that pumps a billion dollars of cash directly into the national treasury each year. It is a major transportation hub and has strong banking and insurance sectors. When the canal expansion finally gets finished it will only mean more riches for this nation. Panama exports a lot of watermelons and bananas to North America and Europe and does not worry about Chinese orders drying up for oil, coal or steel. Picking an economy offshore that will continue to thrive in good and bad times is part of the trick to surviving a stock market crash. Investing and Holding Cash at Home When economies suffer, equities fall in price and real estate goes for a song. Having a cash reserve gets you through the bad times and allows you to buy when prices are at their lowest. To the extent that you stay in stocks, consider utilities as they continue to make money selling electricity even when folks are not going out to the restaurant, taking vacations or buying an iPhone. When the dollar is strong is not the time for investing in gold but it can be a good time for investing in consumer goods companies or breweries as folks always need soap and can usually find money for a beer, or a six pack, with which to celebrate their good fortune or drown their sorrows. http://youtu.be/E0gBAa0ZKv4
