Special: China's First Import Expo
The China International Import Expo (CIIE) has been a chance to showcase “the best of what the United Kingdom has to offer,” Britain's Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox said Tuesday, while calling for reform of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and speaking out against protectionism.
Speaking at a launch event for the UK Pavilion at the CIIE, Fox was keen to stress the importance of the theme of innovation, saying it was what “defines the UK, what excites the UK, and what unites us in our drive for a future partnership with China.”
The UK is one of 12 guest of honor countries at the CIIE, with Chinese President Xi Jinping visiting the country's pavilion on Monday, accompanied by Fox and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
Speaking at a press conference later on Tuesday, Fox said “we're very impressed by the expo,” explaining that the UK had committed to the CIIE early on because the concept of an import-oriented expo was important.
Fox said that the UK “welcomes China's ongoing efforts to open up, increasing imports across both goods and services and improving the business environment.”
The UK encourages China to further deepen its opening up efforts, with Fox calling for “a clear timeline for liberalization.”
While praising the trade relationship between Beijing and London, Fox said that there was still room for growth in cooperation on services. Only 18 percent of the UK's exports to China are services, according to Fox, with the financial services sector a particular area that could be developed.
“It is obvious that the United Kingdom will be a key financial services trade partner with China, as the UK is the world's second largest financial center and London is the global financial capital,” said Fox.
Fox strongly rejected the idea of Brexit making the UK a more isolated country, describing it as “a very open market” which has long championed free trade.
The UK minister praised China's 40 years of reform and opening up, particularly the way that it has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty.
Speaking out against protectionism, Fox cited OECD data that shows non-tariff barriers to trade applied by G20 countries grew almost four-fold between 2010 and 2015.
“I think that there's not only an economic case, but also a moral case, that those of us who have most benefited from free and open trade should want to ensure that those benefits are available not just to the next generation in our own countries, but globally too.”
While Fox spoke out in support of a rules-based trading system under the WTO, he also said that the trade body needs to be reformed. “It is in everybody's interests that if we feel the rules-based system isn't working well, we improve it rather than abandon it.”

update nov 2018 on #BR6 #theeconomist usa relations with china
Kennan Institute | Wilson Center
As chillier weather approaches Washington, trade and technology tensions between China and the United States ar  heating. At the Hudson Institute, Vice President Mike Pence said that: “Across the nation, the American people are growing in vigilance, with a newfound appreciation for our administration’s actions to re-set America’s economic and strategic relationship with China, to finally put America First.” China’s law enforcement actions were aimed inward, as Interpol Chief and Chinese security Veteran Meng Hongwei has been detained and revelations about re-education camps for Xinjiang’s Uighurs were confirmed.    
Groundwork is underway for a Xi-Trump meeting at the 2019 G20 summit, and policymakers from both governments are ramping up tariffs and law enforcement actions that don’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.

BRI.school - help with top 10 ways of valuing youth futures

use blog search to map your place/peoples connections with Belt Road trading
TOP 2 World Record Jobs Creators for every child and teacher to enjoy in 2018
#2 Sir Fazle Abed (connector of Bangaldesh's and the world's girl empowerment networks since 1972)
#1 China's Xi Jinping is sustainability world's number 1 world record jobs co-creator  (search out guterres and other BRI co-creators) while he helps us celebrate 4 things:

1 curriculum of BRI from 5th grade up (what is BRI) -(help design BRI as geographiy and future of your trading nation game for 11 year olds and teachers)

2 end poverty in china by 2020; and make sure poverty never comes back to china or anywhere in sustainability's world of connectivity including refugees at its borders or wars or other ways youth futures collapse
3 rejuvenation of china- a dream chinese parents as defining the unlimited potential of children to be both productive and happy and to connect this spirit wherever they mobilise friendships around the world  (exercise discuss similarities or differences between chna 21st c dream and what peopkle used to call the american deam - for example withiut the american dream in the 1940s hitler would probably have taken ove the world with hatred and dictatirship of the middle of te 20th C-  in all probality nuclear wars woulkd have ended our species -eg read norman macrae's biography of john von neumann the number 1 mathematician of the american dream of the mid 20th C, the father of computing networks, and sadly a man who died before his time making sure that hitler did not get nucear first)

4 by 2050 china being a benchmark for ecological world trade civilisations

in november 2018 jinping uodated 80 million community servants across china on thes goals - the source speech took 3.5 hours to deliver- the question to studnts everywhere is can this be trasblated into a 5th grade quiz by you and your tecahers and communities; how else will you be the sustainability gebneration if such extrorsinary celebrations of win-win futures are not mapped across every regions BRI


1 free universities are designed around the whole education system should be designed so students (however disadvantaged) can be entrepreneurially free to co-create communities making up their nation's joyful future as well as their worldwide generations job number 1 - returning humanity to being sustainable (by 2100 the world will be a happy place if 10 billion people are thriving , it will be an unhappy place if our species is spiralling towards extinction- id you are among the half of the world under 30 yoday and aim to be a parent -imagine your chikd being uder 30 at a time when it is clear that climate in many parts of the wporld can not be safe

more on free universites -chosen as wise and UN eminent educators (leaders of sustainability goals) year of 2018

more on bri.school =  top 10 ways of valuing youth

(please note while bri.school is concerned with every age group - as of 2018 most education systems orgamnise every grade around what univeristies lead - this is something that is very much a pre-digotal legacy - we believe the likes of jack ma has promised that from 2020 he will deveote most of hos time to chnaging this - tell else who else you know who values youth as much as jack ma  (ma at UN; ma at 2020 olympics; ma at adrica; ma at 3000 person mastraining sessions ... where do you celebrate ma being at?) isabella@unacknowkedgegiant.com

SIR FAZLE ABED: BRAC AS SDG17 GIRLS ACTION LEARNING CENTRE OF GRAVITY

BRAC partnership network is number 1 in empowering girls to be the sustainability generation and to celebrate searches of COMtech's deepest innovators of global 2.0 action networking. 

Consequently BRAC collaborations are trusted to integrate:
The world’s largest movement of beyond the classroom education
The world’s largest non government owned schooling system

Resilient world's origin of bottom-up disaster relief and community development networks
Number 2 (to China's Tsinghua) BRAC University concerned with future curricula of public servants
World’s largest cashless banking system BKASH.com  - one of the main ways to be 80% self-sustaining all work on ending Ultra poverty through livelihood creation. (Before attracting coders of www.bkash.com BRAC had been asked to be the founding partner of the curriculum sharing association of Global Alliance of Banks with Values founded around similar concerns to those that evolved the G20 was after subprime's exponential financial crisis of the first millennials goals decade 1999-2008.)

BRAC Partners include: village mothers and daughters of Bangladesh, Gates Foundation, Mastercard Foundation, Soros, British and Australian Aid, MIT Legatum Foundation, Rice Science leaders, Last mile health schools ... alumni networks of such world prizes as Fazle Hasan Abed's at WISE, UNDP, Clinton Global Citizen, World Food Prize... as well as his Alma Mater Adam Smith's Glasgow University (and so the Scottish dream of James Wilson Economist and Commonwealth Queen Victoria to go beyond the Colonial World Trade pathways that Mercantile British Empire sadly compounded into 450 years of East-West Hemisphere trade concluding in world war 2. In New Year 2010 Awards, Queen Elizabeth knighted Sir Fazle -probably the pre-eminent South Asian knighthood in English-speaking history.

LEARNING WWW ORGANISATION CONTEXT
Any errors in wording above collaboration purpose  are mine alone -if this was a first contribution to a wiki how would all of sir fazles greatest connectors and education friends reword it?-- Ever since the Chinese graduates Amy and Yuxuan attended Sir Fazle's 80th birthday party they have been asking Mostofa and me why cant something like this be scaled "educationally" .so that Sir Fazle's girls unite the world of courage and hope youth need is massively understood in China and among those whose cultures share's rejuvenation dreams and SDG's urgent timelines for action out of every community

MY BIGGEST ERROR
 In addition. the coordinator Justin Van Fleet of Gordon Brown's  (UN Education Envoy ) & Education Commission was asking in 2016 for Sir Fazle to make a speech or briefing statement to all the 30+ national leaders of commissioning education to go beyond the classroom.  I was one of several people who failed to actionably bring this message to Sir Fazle.
Please see footnote story of Van Fleet:--

THS HAS MADE TIMING URGENCY IN 2018 EVER GREATER
GIRLS LIFT UP HALF OF BELT ROAD'S & SUSTAINABILITY GOALS GLOBAL 2.0


Urgent reasons for for circulating this feb 2018 include
asking what contributions BRAC can make at :
the next 3 wise summits
the next summits of any sort where education and girls or sustainability genration's  livelihoods are core leadership concern
making sure that education and soft skills and girl empowerment and small enterprise solutions linkin everywhere belt roads develops or superstar events eg Ali Baba Olympics Tokyo are reformed. Critical today are big data small tech    possibiilities - eg needed if blockchain is to be part of the solution of poverty alleiaition.

(Right at this moment the UN eminent committee is being surveyed by 4 expert networks- new development banking, education, green , technology for humanising 4th industrial revolution)
 =====================================
=======================

If we can get the wording right chinese female graduates can translate why BRAC is second only to china's cpc 19 in demanding futires where girls lift up half the sky by celebrating how since 1972  the most valuable development dreams of Bangladesh echo China's. The difference is China has enjoyed diaspora (as early as 1970s the 3rd biggest finacial power ) inward investment in pursuit of this dream whereas BRAC girls have had to entrepreneurially earn every investment and in so doing have been recognised by some of the world's most extraordinary knowhow partnerships both in scaling 1.0 and 2.0 solutions

With the right wording we can make it simpler for sino-eglish speaking women4empowerent networks to clarify why sir fazle abed  (and educators he inspires) connects (BRI.school) with other top 5 world record jobs creators such as Xi Jinping, Guterres, Jack Ma and Pope Francis (as well as survey through ever nation that joins belt road who they locally vote for as world record job creators for girls and end poverty communities for all

============================
The folloowin speech was made in spring 2016 at brookings (long transcript here) by Justin Van Fleet before launching te Education Commission at UN September 2016. Sir Fazle had been invited as chief guest and main inspiration of Gordon Brown but I was one of the main people who failed to explain the timong significance of this invitation.

WHAT'S EDUCATION EQUIVALENT TO JACK MA TAKING COMMERCE BEYONG WALMART
by JUSTIN VAN FLEET -coordinator of networks for Gordon Browns Education Commjison of 30 national leaders  (Gordon Brown is also the special UN envoy for education)

@ BROOKING WASHINGTON DC SPRING 2016

Can we start to be more comfortable when they're saying education is central to any social or economic reform any government wants to undertake whether it's a defense, whether it's a security reform, whether it's a health reform, whether it's climate?

Can we actually be more confident when we're putting out there what we're saying about education so that no finance minister or politician will disagree with that, and they'll actually start their statement by looking at what they can do with education? 

Can we think more boldly about what other investments actually help us further education in the 21st Century? Let's look at infrastructure. I mean, there are things -- I look at -- we had an example in January where Jack Ma, who runs Alibaba in China, said in 60 years, Walmart was on this course to go to every rural village in China and actually deliver goods and services, and bricks and mortar schools. But in eight years, we actually leapfrogged by using e-commerce.

 So I'm not saying that there's a direct parallel in education, but we need to just think differently about the changing world, and how we actually react and interact with what the reality is, and can we think forward? And I think looking at innovation, we need to not be afraid of innovation. 

This came up during a dinner last week which I thought was really interesting. Would you go into an emergency room or an operating room, and have a surgery in an operating room that looked like the operating room of a hundred yeras ago?

Probably not if you had the option to go into a 21st Century operating room, or one of 2016. Yet, everyday, we're sending children to have brain surgery in the most unreformed institution of the last century. The classrooms of today look like the classroom of a hundred a years ago, so we need to actually think a little bit differently because it really is brain surgery. It's cognitive development. It's trying to bring young people up to be proactive and active members of our society, and we just need to be thinking more boldly and differently about that. So I think we need to challenge each other to sort of get outside of our comfort zone if we're going to sort of take this next big leap forward.
