Why globalization is good essay
n a sweeping speech at the World Economic Forum two years ago, President Xi Jinping argued that China was free trade’s greatest champion. Any attempt to stop the flow of capital, technology, goods, industries or people between economies "is simply not possible," he said. Then in January last year, President Donald Trump arrived at the Swiss ski village to deliver his own "simple message: There has never been a better time to hire, to build, to invest and to grow in the United States. America is open for business." Washington was committed to free trade, he said. But "we cannot have free and open trade if some countries exploit the system at the expense of others." Neither leader mentioned their superpower rival. But it was clear that in setting out their boundaries for how global trade should work, they were talking to each other.

And the fallout from their falling out is why there’s so much talk about Xi, Trump … [Read more...] about Why Davos is talking about the fight between two absentees
Back to English Comments News - January 10, 2019 | 08:04 am GMT+7 In Ha Giang in Vietnam’s northern mountains, poverty forces many kids to drop out, but the prospects of hot meals also entice some. It’s 11:20 a.m. Lunch time starts at the Chien Pho Secondary Boarding School in Hoang Su Phi District in Vietnam’s northern province of Ha Giang, a land of mountains, passes and rocks on the China border. The children do not waste any time. They quickly sit down, seek permission from their teachers, part of Vietnamese etiquette to show respect to elders, and begin to eat as fast as their little hands and mouths allow. Their food trays contain peanut roasted with salt, dried fish, fried eggs, and pumpkin soup besides as much rice as they want. In 15 minutes all are done with the meal. Most of the trays are clean with just a few having some remnants of fish or peanuts. Only for the last two days has Vang Thi Nga, an eighth grader, had the chance to sit … [Read more...] about Where a 50-cent meal is good enough reason to go to school – VnExpress International
(VEN) - True gender equality still lies some way off, but the world is edging ever closer to this goal as women’s access to educational and business opportunities rapidly improves. As one of the region’s fastest growing and most dynamic economies, Vietnam is very much part of this picture and there is no shortage of budding female businesswomen to look up to.

Viet Nam News True gender equality still lies some way off, but the world is edging ever closer to this goal as women’s access to educational and business opportunities rapidly improves. To give an idea of global progress, workforce participation among US female millennials is 69 per cent today compared to 78 per cent for males, while in 1963, these figures stood at 41 per cent versus 88 per cent. In developed nations today, as many as four in ten households have a woman as the primary earner. Arguably, things are progressing even faster in Asia-Pacific, with women often leading in the wealth-creation race – particularly in the very upper, billionaire, echelons. You might be surprised to learn that today over half the region’s female billionaires are first-generation entrepreneurs. At the forefront of a global trend As one of the region’s fastest growing and most dynamic economies, Việt Nam is very much part of this picture and there is no shortage of … [Read more...] about Why VN is such fertile ground for female entrepreneurs
