At 2 a.m. Beijing time on September 27, the US Federal Reserve announced, after a Monetary Policy Meeting, that it would raise interest rates by 25 basis points and raise the Federal Funds Target Rate to between 2 and 2.25%, the highest level since 2008. This is not a move China should emulate. Neither raising the benchmark interest rates for deposits and loans, nor increasing the open-market operation interest rates would bode well for China's current domestic economic and financial situation.

To get an estimate of how both countries’ economic growth would be affected, one must consider both the direct effect of the trade war and all the potential adjustments in government policy and company strategy. This is not a simple matter. Without a comprehensive analysis, any estimates from ‘experts’ are likely to be off the mark. In the short run, a trade war will likely lead to lower economic growth. But how it affects economic growth beyond the short run depends on many factors.

In today’s China, where a number of changes have taken place and new status quo have emerged, future expectations for the macro-economy have changed significantly from previous ones. I believe that a Dominant Strategy (a game theory concept which involves utter confidence in your choices) is the solution to the current Chinese economic situation of "seeking out changes amid stable development". Read on for my analysis on China’s real estate & stock markets and its RMB exchange rate along with an outline of feasible solutions to challenges in those areas.

October 19, 2018. Paris – The opportunities for Chinese and French enterprises to collaborate in the increasingly important field of artificial intelligence was the topic of discussion at today’s China-France Investment Dialogue. French Member of Parliament Cédric Villani, who drafted France’s national AI strategy, was among the more than 300 participants at the event. Mostly business executives from both countries, they explored the French and Chinese approaches to AI, potential areas of collaboration, and discussed AI’s role in and impact on the field of medicine. The event, co-organised with CCI French-Chinese Exchange Committee Paris Île-de-France and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in France, is part of the wider CEIBS Insights 2018 initiative.

October 15, 2018. Shanghai – China Europe International Business School’s Global Executive MBA has moved up nine spots to #5 in the Financial Times’ 2018 ranking of the world’s top 100 EMBA programmes. This is the second CEIBS programme the FT has ranked within the top 10 this year. The CEIBS MBA was ranked #8 globally and #1 in Asia in January. This makes CEIBS the first ever Asian school to have two programmes ranked within the FT’s top 10. In the EMBA ranking released today, the CEIBS Global EMBA is also the highest-ranked stand-alone programme. All four programmes ranked above it are collaborations between at least two schools whose combined data are factored into the results. As the rankings have shown, the independently offered CEIBS Global EMBA offers an increasingly international and diverse experience in providing a world class education with continued improvements being made in the quality of the school’s research.

Human society has never been so deeply driven by technological innovation as it is today. Along with the advancement of internet infrastructure, cloud computing and big data have become mainstays of the healthcare industry and VR/AR applications are also gathering momentum in the medical field. The healthcare industry has become both a testing ground and a playing field for a string of emerging technologies. Only by keeping abreast of new technologies for smart healthcare can we spearhead the evolution of the healthcare industry.
