Nation remains on the right track of maintaining gro

The National Bureau of Statistics reported last week that China’s top-line GDP growth rate

in the first quarter was 6.4 percent, at the upper end of the government’s target of 6 to 6.5 percent grow

th for 2019. This faster-than-expected growth gives policymakers some breathing room to continue a stable mone

tary policy and to implement fiscal policies aimed b

oth at transforming the economy and at reducing the risks of accumulated debt.

Chinese policymakers are dealing with the hard dilemma of simultaneously transformi

ng the long-term nature of the economy while avoiding short-term inflation or recession. To transform the econo

my, the nation needs to continue to reduce outstanding debt levels and shift from overcapacity heavy and extractive indu

stries to a more innovative, consumer-focused economy. The danger is that moving too fast in that direction coul

d throw lots of people out of work or cause the financial collapse of companies.

Messi shines as Barca secure their 8th league title in year

Leo Messi scored the only goal of the game as FC Barcelona

beat Levante 1-0 to assure the 2018-19 Liga Santander title on Saturday night.

Barca coach Ernesto Valverde again rotated his starting 11 for the game and Messi spent the fir

st 45 minutes watching from the sidelines. Barca controlled the first half with Luis Suarez and Philippe Cou

tinho testing Levante keeper Aitor Fernandez, who was his side’s best player in the opening 45 minutes.

Despite Barca’s dominance, they were unable to open the scorin

g and Messi replaced Coutinho at the start of the second half to try and find a way through.

He was on target for the 34th time in the league this season in the 62n

d minute as he fired home a left foot shot following a headed pass from Arturo Vidal.

Barca has won 26 league titles in Spain, compared to

 33 for Real Madrid. But Barca have won

eight of the last 11 leagues and 10 of the last 15 (all 10 with Messi in the squad).

Earlier in the day, second-placed Atletico Madrid won 1-0 at home over struggling Valladolid to delay Barca’s celebrations.

The only goal of the match came in the 66th minute when Valladolid’s Joaquin Fernandez put the ball into his own net, but

the visitors were convinced they should have had a penalty after Santiago Arias clearly handed the ball in his own area.

Referee Melero Lopez checked with the VAR but decided the handball was accidental.

Athletic Club Bilbao remains seventh after a 1-1 draw at home with Alaves in the Basque derby.

The Belt and Road Initiative is now running for a coupl

of years and has achieved success even in Europe, but it is not finished yet and it should be a win-wi

n situation for China and Europe. China is a very big market and an important global player.

China is Germany’s biggest trading partner, so I think there will be a good future for the two countries.

The Belt and Road Initiative has been a very successful integration proj

ect which is bringing China closer to the world. President Xi Jinping’s speech today is outli
