The world seems abuzz with the theme of growth, which is but natural.
Education and initiative seem to be key themes also, for further development.
German Chancellor Mme Merkel is in China to get the Chinese leadership's support for the Eurozone, to secure some investment as well as goodwill of continued support for the exports. Both of these I would hazard a guess will be forthcoming, as China has a vested interest in continued economic growth and stability in the world, which will ensure a soft-landing for China this year and create a market for their goods as well as capital.
China is said to have foreign exchange reserves of $3.4 Trillion, according to the China Central TV. Of this, they will be seeking to invest $2.4 Trillion overseas, and the last figure was of about $300 Billion for the Eurozone. If this were revised to $500B, that would make many nations happy.
Co-operation and trade will save this year in the financial markets. If that is there, it is plain sailing ahead for most of the world.
