Architectural experts who have gained a hands-on unders

standing of the pros and cons of rural reconstruction through their work were also invited to hold a dialogue with the writers, which resonated so strongly with the

villagers that some of them surrounded the speakers afterward hoping to expand their discussions.

He Wei, assistant professor at the school of architecture at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, w

ho has been leading several projects in the countryside, thinks a major problem is the conflicting demands between the elite class

of city dwellers, who tend to seek spiritual comfort in village life, and the villagers themselves who naturally want to i

mprove their quality of life. However, many of the rural traditions have been lost during the process.

“Once they leave the countryside, it’s hard for people to come back and settle, both in person and spiritually,” he says.

More comprehensive and well-targeted policy respon

ses are needed to tackle the current growth slowdown,” Elliot Harris, UN chief economist and assi

stant secretary-general for economic development, said Tuesday at a news conference. “It is increasingly clear that policies to pro

mote sustainable development will need to look beyond GDP growth and identify new and more robust measures of

economic performance that appropriately reflect the costs of inequality, insecurity and climate change.”

In response to slowing growth and subdued inflation, major central banks have eased their monetary policy stances. The recent mo

netary policy shifts have helped to stabilize global financial markets and capital flows to emerging economies.

However, the report cautions that a more protracted period of monetary accommodation could exacerbate fina

ncial imbalances, including further fueling debt accumulation and raising medium-term risks to financial stability.

Four Chinese banks ranked among world’s top moneymakers

Four Chinese banks were among the world’s top 10 most profitable companies over

the past year concluding at the end of March, according to a report by Bloomberg.

The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and China Construction Bank achieved a net in

come of $45 billion and $38 billion respectively over the past year, closely following Apple Inc, which retai

ned its title of world’s biggest moneymaker for the fourth straight year with a net income of $57.2 billion.

The Agricultural Bank of China and the Bank of China were respectively ranked at the

seventh and 10th places in the top profit list, with $31 billion and $27 billion in net incomes.

While financial service companies claimed nine spots among the top 10 most profitable compa

nies, no drugmakers or automotive firms appeared in the list for the first time in eight years, the report said.

Roughly 20 years ago, when China’s admission to the

World Trade Organization was being negotiated, China’s economy was ti

ny as a portion of world GDP. It was clearly a poor, less-developed country that, except in a f

ew areas, was not able to compete with Western companies in high-value-added products.

As Alexander Hamilton, the first US Treasury secretary, argued, a developing country may need to p

rotect its “infant industries” from already established foreign competitors. This was the policy foll

owed by the US in the 19th century and by Western Europe, Japan, and South Korea in the years after World War II.

China is no longer a poor country. It can no longer compete by using low-wa

ge labor. Fortunately, it has now developed world-class companies that are incre

asingly developing new products and services that can compete successfully in many foreign markets.

Earnings growth may sustain at a rather high speed

Wang Yang, an analyst with Soochow Securities based in Suzhou, Jia

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su

pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

According to Wang, the current profit cycle of A-share companies started from 2

016 and should end with recovery this year, as the cycles usually last for 12 to 14 quarters.

This year’s gradual recovery in earnings growth could help the A-share market to withstan

d external uncertainties, said Yan Xiang, an analyst with Shenzhen-based Guosen Securities.

“It is quite different from 2018 when earnings growth of most companies deteriorated. Earn

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.
