2008 global fin上海419论坛女神会所ancial crisis, needs to send a clear message in opposing protectionism

and upholding an open economy to allay growing uncertainties and risks in the global economy, he added.

Guillermo Santa Cruz, director of the Chinese Investment Monitor o

f the Argentina-China Chamber of Commerce, wrote in an article published in the Previe

w Policy Report for the G20 Osaka Summit that “we are at a point where we need to strengthen the message of op

enness, integration and fair competition that will take us to a shared prosperity”.

Building an open global economy with strong multilateral institutions is in everyone’s best interests, especially less-developed and developing countries, he said.

Xi and Trump agreed in a phone conversation last week to meet in Japan. Their upcoming me

eting has raised hopes that the two countries will narrow their differences. The news has turned global s

tock market sentiment upward, though concrete efforts are still needed to reach a deal, experts said.

hina’s revised civil servant law takes effect

China’s civil servant law, newly revised in December 2018, took effect Saturday.

The revised law clarifies systems of civil servant promotion and asses

sment, and includes statutes to improve rewards and benefits such as pension schemes.

It also tightens supervision over civil servants, keeping its statutes in

line with the supervision law and disciplinary rules of the Communist Party of China.

The revised law bans civil servants from working as leaders of industry regulators or administrati

ve departments in charge of supervising businesses run by their spouses, children or in-laws.

The civil servant law first took effect in 2006.

The phone call took place days after the US Commerce Dep

artment announced on Wednesday it will add telecommunications eq

uipment maker Huawei and its affiliates to the Entity List on Wednesday. Being on the list

bars the company from buying US technology without government approval due to security concerns.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bars US companies fr

Santarita said a similar concept can also be found in other

Asian countries, citing the Philippines’ compadrazgo and Indonesia’s bapakism as examples.

Compadrazgo, a Spanish word that literally translates to “co-fatherhood”, is based

on a kinship ritual that is formed after a child gets baptized into the Roman Catholic faith.

For the predominantly Catholic and close-knit Philippine society, t

he godfather (known as the padrino) is part of one’s extended family and is expected to he

lp and protect his godchild. The godchild is expected to respect and be loyal to the padrino.

Bapakism is derived from the Indonesian word for “father”. When us

ed in Indonesian business, bapakism demands great respect and obedience to one’s su

perior. The manager in his role as the company’s bapak is expected to look after and care for his employees.

Although Asian values are steeped in an ancient culture and tradition, it was only in t

he 1990s that this concept drew global attention. This was partly due to Asian leaders like the la
