The G20 summit this year includes a trade ministers’ meeting to talk about the Doha Round, the latest round of trade negotiations among WTO members to reform the international trading system and introduce lower trade barriers. China hopes progress will be made in the Doha Round talks, which have been launched more than 10 years ago but stalled due to disagreements between developed and emerging countries. Full story >>
For more analysis on the G20 Summit, we now have Mr. Ding Yifan from the State Council’s Development Research Center in the studio.
Q1. Mr. Ding, the global demand outlook is pretty weak due to the euro crisis and unemployment problem in the US. What should emerging countries do to maintain their economies on a growth track? I mean we already see slowdown in China and India.
Q2. China just announced a contribution of 43 billion dollars to the IMF, the most among BRICS countries. On one hand, it shows China's commitment in confronting global economic imbalance as the 2nd largest world economy. On the other hand, we're hearing different voices at home, like China is still a development country with lots of poor people. So in your opinion, is a cash injection into global funds the right way forward?
Thanks for joining us. That’s Mr. Ding Yifan from the State Council’s Development Research Center.
