Within a few years the world was debating if tech helps man reach the moon is there any mission impossible on earth.

world record job creator xi jinping

Norman Macrae wrote this in The Economist of 1977- clarifying how disastrous the world would be if China did not help its huge youth populations grow- 

We suggest people look at these areas of Xi Jinping's work to understand why he arguably brings more hope to more people than any other national leader ever has:

infrastructure investment and mapping is critical all over the 21st C world -starting with what access do your community have to a superport and if you live on a continent a railways system valuing all people- as Romano Prodi explains if you care about the future of any med sea nation then belt road is a good name for mapping this (but we welcome other names that may be preferred in different regions- it was actually india that asked countries to start forming new development banks (ndb headquartered in shanghia ,aiib headquartered in beijing but with annual summits 17 s korea 18 mumbai 19 luxembourg) - look at the projects these banks are designing as benchmarks of intergenerational sustainability

Jinping publications on out of poverty go back to 1988- thats because rural value chains were the focus he proved his ability on (and indeed which beijing's main university has turned into a curriculum); later he came to track how shanghai grew so his breadth of place development understanding is not something many national leaders have

jinping is especially worth tracking for
- valuing ,livelihoods as integral human right
-focusing on ai in education from early childhood
-ending poverty inside china

china was left out of many of the world's biggest leadership gatherings such as g7/8 for far longer than was sensible given its size and growth- as an alternative jinping was instrumental in developing annual gatherings such as BRICS, SCO africa union plus china CEEC plus greece plus china - all of which clearly value what they have learnt with china

when it comes to AIdemocracy techforsdgs.com under 30s will find china has more solutions to share than any one single nation- its worth going back to the first 12 months after the sustainbility goals were launched sept 2015- china convened the g20 in summer 2016 and helped advance tech solutions more than any g20 has ever done -example

we understand that recently Trump has aimed trade wars at china- whatever these are about they are not in line with youth being the sustainability development generation - the world may be lucky to that jinping has a total different quality of leadership and cultural diversity/empathy than trump

BEIJING – Singapore’s late founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew was honoured on Tuesday (Dec 18) for his role in pushing the city-state’s “deep involvement” in China’s reform and opening-up journey. Mr Lee was one of 10 foreigners who were awarded the China Reform Friendship Medal at a ceremony held at the Great Hall of the People to mark the 40th anniversary of China’s reform and opening up. The other foreigners honoured on Tuesday include Klaus Schwab, Matsushita Konosuke, Ohira Masayoshi, Stephen Perry and Robert Kuhn. One hundred Chinese nationals were given the China Reform Pioneer Award for their outstanding contributions to the past 40 years of reform and opening up. Among those who were on stage to receive the awards were Alibaba founder Jack Ma, former NBA basketball player Yao Ming, search engine Baidu’s founder Robin Li and former World Health Organization director-general Dr Margaret Chan. In his speech to hundreds of officials, business leaders and diplomats, President Xi Jinping paid tribute to those who have made outstanding contributions to the movement which was launched by patriarch Deng Xiaoping in 1978. President Xi compared China’s journey to a storm-tossed journey and one of hacking through brambles and thorns. “The (Chinese Communist) Party has led the Chinese people in painting a picture of magnificent scale, and a powerful, touching paean to striving forward,” he said. China has undertaken reform in virtually all sectors of society in the last four decades, he added, as it transformed from a traditional planned economy… [Read full story]

In Nov 2016 Kissinger asked Presidents Xi and Trump to be the greatest leaders youth have ever celebrated for the sustainability stakes of our species- we dont understand President Trump's response- we happily recommend every youth study innovation invitations President Xi is making

Above all we love belt road mapping which Xi Jinping spends a lot to time helping everyone to examine- why? because its the most systemic method we have ever seen of resolving all the conflicts of the colonial age which starting 15000 accelerated to end in 2 world wars

As recently as the race to the moon a search around the world would show up to half of people had no access to electricity grids let alone phones or other ways of sharing info other than person to person. Today we have about 1000 times more communications tech around the world than 1946- but has it been mapped in ways that linkin sustainability goals of all of us.
Start with the fact that 90% of world trade is shipped. If you live in a landlocked nation, you cant access that world trade unless you have a friendly neighbor and have built container overland transport.

When the British as main colonisers of the East gave back independence to nations starting in the late 1940s, the colonial period  left behind negative logic to where ports (and railroads if any were). Essentially they were bordered in by neighbors who had through centuries of colonisation seen each other as enemies like pakistan and india

We can all leap together into a 21st C and celebrate the best of digital and human commerce if we remap every continents- where should shared superports be, what overland grid of Roads (Rail, electricity cables  other pipes ) will ensure that every community and every enterprsie hwoever small can be free to trade. It doesnt make sense to say to everyone on mobile - ok you can trade learning but you cant trade goods because we havent mapped local to global trading infrastructures smartly

There is more good news about linking contiuents by railroads.  Like the Silk Road of old, a railroad is only effective if every neighbor ceklebrates every other. Rail trade can bring massively positive opportunities to youth even if hosti9ry had caused their parents to war against each other. Wjat we need know is massive arts festivals, langiage festivals culture festivals, joint technology expoeriemnts everywhere that youth are newly bridged,  In other words ,  can we unite the human race not just in sustainability goals but in youthful joy and peace dividends. Todays commiunications technologies can be desigend to make places safer and safer by womens standrads as the deepest judge of community wellbeing. If we dont just do it now, will we ever.

China has at least 15 near neighbors. Generally speaking the poorest chinese are clpse to neighblors who are poorest. So as adam smith would say its in china's interests to help map win-win tradiong infrastructure across borders as well as being about growth and also both the moral and the sustainability way forward.
Of course there are whole continents like africa which first need to remap their belt roads. They then need to decide which countries want to connect sustainability investments. Its up to Africans whether their favorite inward investors are usa, china west europe or elsewhere but it makes sense to check out that your investors do understand belt road mapping and value youth's worldwide collaboration towards sustainability gpoals of every community

REPORT: Joint People’s Bank of China-International Monetary Fund High-Level Conference on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) April 12, 2018 Beijing, China The Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, often referred to as the “Belt and Road Initiative” was launched by President Xi Jinping in 2013. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) aims to promote policy dialogues, foster connectivity and cooperation in infrastructure, trade, finance, and ‘people-topeople exchanges’. It aims to connect Asia with Europe and Africa, through the Middle East and reaching Latin American countries. It is expected to raise significant resources from China and various other sources, including the private sector, to support development, mainly infrastructure development, and improve growth prospects. The BRI has the potential to bring much-needed infrastructure to countries and facilitate trade and financial flows, thus acting as a source of growth and fostering international cooperation. Achieving these goals will require strong policy frameworks to ensure high-quality projects and sufficient macroeconomic and institutional capacity in partner countries to absorb investment flows, reap the benefits and manage the associated risks. China has been working with its partners, including participating countries and international organizations, to make sure the BRI reaches its full potential and the benefits are shared as widely as possible. In particular, close cooperation with the IMF will help in promoting strong policy frameworks as an important pillar for the success of the BRI.

The conference is sponsored by the China-IMF Capacity Development Center (CICDC), Tsinghua University PBC School of Finance and the International Financial Corporation. The CICDC is a new IMF center funded by the Chinese government to provide training and other capacity development events for China and other IMF member countries, including those participating in the BRI. 2 Macroeconomic and Financial Frameworks for Successful Implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative Ritz Carlton, Financial Street Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor) APRIL 11, 2018 6:30 PM WELCOME DINNER HOSTED BY THE PBC AND THE IMF VENUE: Temple of Heaven (2nd Floor) Welcome Remarks • ZHU Jun, Director-General, International Department, People’s Bank of China • Changyong RHEE, Director, Asia and Pacific Department, IMF • Sharmini COOREY, Director, Institute for Capacity Development, IMF • XING Yujing, President, Shenzhen Sub-branch, People’s Bank of China • ZHANG Yuanjun, President, Dalian Sub-branch, People’s Bank of China APRIL 12, 2018 8:15 AM REGISTRATION 8:45 AM WELCOME AND OPENING REMARKS YI Gang, Governor, PBC Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, IMF 9:15 AM Inauguration of China-IMF Capacity Development Center (CICDC) 9:20–9:30 AM COFFEE BREAK 9:30–10:45 AM SESSION I. What Can the BRI Do to Help Participating Countries? The BRI has the potential to boost growth and foster global integration through higher investment in infrastructure, greater trade integration (including integration into global value chains), and enhanced financial connectivity. As the Initiative moves forward, three key questions arise: (i) what are the main objectives and desirable outcomes, (ii) what are the possible risks or impediments, and (iii) what can policymakers do to enhance the benefits while minimizing potential risks, including by strengthening domestic institutions. This session will take stock of the experience so far and set the stage for the discussions that follow on specific policy frameworks. Moderator Markus RODLAUER, Deputy Director, Asia and Pacific Department, IMF High-Level Panelists • FAN Hengshan, Deputy Secretary-General, National Development and Reform Commission, China • Dimitry KUMSISHVILI, First Vice Prime Minister, Georgia • Ahsan Iqbal CHAUDHARY, Minister of Planning/Interior, Pakistan • Dusan VUJOVIC, Minister of Finance, Serbia • WANG Yongsheng, Executive Vice President, China Development Bank 3 10:45–11:00 AM COFFEE BREAK 11:00 AM –12:15 PM SESSION II. Macro-Financial Policy Implications of the BRI The BRI can enhance financial connectivity and help bridge the gap between infrastructure needs in emerging markets/low income countries and China’s surplus savings and investment capacity. In low-income countries, greater connectivity can foster financial development and inclusion, including by using fintech. However, there is a need to be conscious of debt sustainability risks, given the size of participating government BRI commitments, when scaled against current GDP, fiscal space, and foreign currency reserves. Rapid increases in financial flows could pose challenges to the typical pace and sequencing of financial deepening. Key questions include: (i) what types of financing arrangements would best mitigate macro-financial risks; (ii) what can authorities do to monitor effectively the buildup of risks to financial stability; and (iii) which micro- and macroprudential tools can effectively ameliorate the destabilizing impact of large-scale financial flows in shallow financial systems. Moderator MA Jun, Director, Center for Finance and Development, Tsinghua National Institute of Financial Research High-Level Panelists • PAN Gongsheng, Deputy Governor, PBC • Daniyar AKISHEV, Governor, National Bank of Kazakhstan • Mario BERGARA, President, Central Bank of Uruguay • Alamine OUSMANE MEY, Minister of the Economy, Planning and Regional Development, Cameroon • ERDEMBILEG Ochirkhuu, First Deputy Governor, Central Bank of Mongolia • LIU Liange, President, The Export-Import Bank of China 12:30-2:00 PM LUNCHEON VENUE: Temple of Heaven (2nd Floor) Keynote Speech ZHU Min, President of National Institute of Financial Research, Tsinghua University and Former Deputy Managing Director, IMF 2:15-3:30 PM SESSION III. Strengthening Fiscal Frameworks for a Successful BRI This session will focus on the importance of fiscal institutions and frameworks in achieving macroeconomic stability and supporting long-term inclusive growth, and the role that capacity building can play to strengthen institutions. A sound fiscal framework provides the basis for governmental policies that are sustainable and transparent, leading to effective policy decision-making. Topics to be explored include: medium-term fiscal frameworks, fiscal rules, identification and mitigation of fiscal risks, debt sustainability, medium-term revenue strategies (including customs and taxation of MNCs) and the scope of government operations (for example, monitoring of PPPs and SOEs). Moderator Michael KEEN, Deputy Director, Fiscal Affairs Department, IMF High-Level Panelists • ZHU Guangyao, Vice Minister of Finance, China • Somdy DOUANGDY, Deputy Prime Minister, Lao PDR • Vache GABRIELYAN, Vice Prime Minister, Armenia • Malado KABA, Minister of Economy and Finance, Guinea • Eran WICKRAMARATNE, State Minister of Finance, Sri Lanka 4 3:30-3:45 PM COFFEE BREAK 3:45-5:15 PM SESSION IV. Bringing in Other Stakeholders (e.g. Private Sector) to Maximize Benefits of BRI Strong and sustainable growth requires that public investment be accompanied by rising private investment. Indeed, to maximize the growth impact of BRI projects and ensure commercial and financial viability, bringing in private sector participation can help. This will foster strong project preparation, execution, and financing. Strengthening the business environment, including the institutional and regulatory frameworks for private sector activity, is an important objective in most BRI countries. This session will focus on how the BRI can successfully catalyze more private investment, including in infrastructure. The session will include IFIs experienced in managing such private sector participation, such as the IFC. Moderator Hans Peter LANKES, Vice President, International Financial Corporation High-Level Panelists • Arkebe Oqubay METIKU, Minister and Special Advisor to the Prime Minister, Ethiopia • Eddie YUE, Deputy Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and Director of the HKMA Infrastructure Financing Facilitation Office (IFFO) • WANG Yanzhi, President, Silk Road Fund • Enzo QUATTROCIOCCHE, Secretary General, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development • Michael ELLAM, Co-Head of Public Sector Banking, HSBC • NAN Cunhui, Chairman, Chint Group • John WOOLLACOTT, Senior Vice President, DP World 5:15-5:45 PM CLOSING DISCUSSION ZHU Jun, Director-General, International Department, PBC Jihad AZOUR, Director, Middle East and Central Asia Department, IMF

ira hefland is a medic who has helped networks win 2 nobel peace prizes:
a medical one
a young one

his research shows that even a small nuclear war would likely end a billion people - not immediately but by putting enough of our fragile earth's climate out of sync that refugees problems would multiply and hear/conventional wars compound let alone caners and other health risks multiply through our food chain

so far since the furst nuclear bomb spending by big government on arms races has gone up and up - in other words since taxes come from the working people, each of us is spending more and more lof lour lives on the most negative of all nightmares

BRI.school
if you look at history its possible ti see that many wars started due to lack of communications (although systemically they were also "develoed" by generations of unfiar national ;policies like colonisation which resulted in a few nations becoming developed by sacrificing other nations development - we are entreing a strange pardox if now we are able to commuicat universally we cannot ever unite peoples in a peace dividend

---this cirespondence reminds mke how in my fatrhers day maby people becaoisme economits to tru to help natuons end wars- the only valkud purpose of the european eunion was to end wars-there is ni valid purpose for an extra top down level of bureaucrats

Sustainability Press Club Association
One of the things we want to do is issue a vear of 2019 short leaflet - if father or like minded souls were around in 2019 who would be the most unique 50=100 people concerned with under 30s around the world he was interviewing or vice versa- we will map these by key regions- we especially want the english language component to be strong as an antidote to brexit and trump. Some would say that it was my dads work in 1961 that re-established good trading connections between europe, japan and first parts of far east to innovate -so it would be pity of youth of english speaking nations are to be most excluded now

If thats the kind of contact someone in IEA or partners would want to be connected with - listing from your viewpoints eg what issues economics or education hasnt yet got a transparent model for youth to be the sustainability generation then we would love to know who to correspond with as we build this directory 

we will certainly know who jack ma and who sir fazle abed nominates by oct 6- we then need to find out how to do the journalism to contact extended partners of ma and sir fazle abed- fortunately we have at least 2 outstanding universities -tsinghua in beijing together with its cgtn media division can certainly clarify china contacts -  read to put their alumni on to this if that is the regionally suitable way to form the diary

Subject: sept 30 to oct 6 9th remembance party norman macrae, 50th of entrepreneurial revolution, 175th of The Economost's birth

Please could you relay this if relevant to any friends at IEA
My father, Norman Macrae, contributed quite a lot to IEA including review 100 of Hobarts and as a judge of the Fisher awards

He was The Economist's end poverty sub-editor for 40 years and at time of moon landing started genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution- around the Death of Distance hypothesis that mobilising 1000 times more tech connectivity 2015 versus 1946 : would this lead to sustaining or destroying 21st C generations out of every community?

We are delighted to announce that the 9th remembrance event (co-sponsored by Norman Macrae Family Foundation) is returning to Bangladesh the last country he surveyed following the 3rd remembrance party hosted by the japan embassy in Dhaka around 2 roundtable dinners - chaired by Sir Fazle Abed of brac girl empowerment and the worlds largest partnerships ngo and the founder of bkash Kamil Quadir now the world's largest cashless bank. Regionally Norman had spent 3 years in Bangladesh/Myanmar as his last teenage days were spent navigating planes in world war 2

DHAKA SEPT 30 TO OCTOBER 5
Instead of a roundtable dinner we will helping arrange a dialogue week - it will mainly take place at brac but its chief guest will be alibaba';s main academic researcher professor Ying Lowrey of Tsinghua University , Beijing. Norman had hoped from his 1977 survey that the fifts of the world's people in china would become the centre of gravity of sustaining worldwide under 30s

From Ying's viewpoint she seeks to understand Bangladesh at year 47 of girls development of  this extraordinary place and peoples - WHY NOW because jack ma has just made his first investment in Bangladesh's digotal banking for the poor -the model that Bill Gates says impresses him like no other

 and many other people see the girls economics solutions of Bangladesh being the replicable microfrnachises most needed  respond to south asia's ultra poverty challenges- between China and South Asia we map over 40% of the world's people as well as the majority of poorest women

BELT ROAD QUERY: at the same time only a first look at the maps of the east will show that Bangladesh is partitioned in by historically uncollaborative neighbors - India and Myanmar - and so the legacy from the days of the British Raj currently blocks Bangladesh from connecting SME commerce with the rich south coast of china and linking in with all the main maritime flows towards Gulf, Suez and Med Sea

we ask people to find their own traveling costs; we will mainly sponsor the accommodation ; if people don't want to come but want to submit a hugely replicable idea for appraisal we will do our best to facilitate that

if you want more information please ask me in dc or Mostofa Zaman who has been coordinating youth journalism/education out of Bangladesh villages since my father first started consider Bangladesh in 2007

some more updating of my fathers future histories aimed at including nations in win-win trading models in ways that prioritised ending poverty can be found at VALUETRUE.com Maps where we welcome the opportunity to linkin to like-minded learning=livelihood networks
