Chinese Economics Thread

China is rapidly RISING Economically, with many International friends including those in ASEAN. The Chinese will not be deterred by "spoilers" & by any envious country leader/s. I have lectured to many young Chinese International Business Students in Macau U, & led Seminars for Guangzhou University MBA Executive Business Students in the past. They were all very enthusiastic learners and it was greatly satisfying to teach them. I hope to do the same as an visiting part-time Academic for Chinese & ASEAN students at Xiamin (China) University, recently established in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

or something else?

Yup that is the one. the old line is rickety and will soon be used as tourist train. but no new line from Hekou/LaoCai to Haiphong because the Vietnamese can't make up their mind maybe also financial reason
Here is the view of the border town Hekou on chinese side and LaoCai on Vietnamese side. What you see is the chinese side
 
I read Xinhua 2016-12-30 16:45:33 article
Smog returns to north China
Smog returned to parts of northern China Friday as red and orange alerts were issued for the new round of pollution over the weekend.

PM2.5 readings in many areas of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province exceeded 200 Friday afternoon. In Shijiazhuang, Hebei provincial capital, the index exceeded 400, meaning serious pollution.

Beijing started its orange alert, the second-highest level, Friday. The alert will continue Saturday and Sunday.

Tianjin began an orange alert Thursday night, banning heavy diesel trucks from roads and cutting 30 percent of pollutant emissions of key factories.

Eight cities, including Shijiazhuang in Hebei, activated red alerts, the highest level response, Thursday night.

Seven cities in Henan, including provincial capital Zhengzhou, began a red alert Friday. Zhengzhou suspended school classes Friday.

The new round of pollution is forecast to last until Jan. 5 in Hebei and Henan.

The smog also hit Shandong Province, where Jinan, Dezhou and Liaocheng cities will be put on red alert Friday night.

Measures such as suspension of school classes and restriction of cars, will be adopted in red alert areas.

How do genuine immigrants get their money out to set up a business or purchase a home in other countries then?

Normal business investments are excluded and not affected, so setting up a business should be fine.

And if you are genuinely immigrating, there is zero to minimal risk to you saying you need $200,000 to buy premises for your business, when in fact you only needed $100,000, and instead used the other $100,000 to buy a house also. Assuming you earned that $200k fair and square.

The purpose of these controls are to stop people making money in China, and then moving it all overseas while they remain in China to make the fen more money. Because typically that is the MO of someone corrupt trying to milk China for all they could and then relying on the overseas status of their property to stop the Chinese authorities recovering their ill gotten fortunes.

It's for the same reason China stubbornly refuses to recognised dual nationality/citizenship, and bans anyone who has a spouce or children who are foreign citizens from taking jobs above a certain rank/level.

Can immigrants who still have bank accounts in China still apply to the bank for finance on business and home loans?

Anything but Semiconductor.
US has cleared China to acquire Chicago stock exchange, also cleared China acquisition of German Robot maker Kuka
But will block China on semiconductor investment.

It's not even dual use tech, it's plain commercial tech that japan, Korea, Taiwan has but Obama wants ban Semiconductor investment in US by China. Meaning banning semiconductor companies sale to China.

WASHINGTON—The Obama administration is finalizing a study that could lead to restrictions on Chinese investment in the U.S. semiconductor sector.
The report, being prepared by President Barack Obama’s chief science adviser and due to be published before he leaves office this month, will include recommendations aimed at bolstering protection of an industry deemed critical to national security, according to people familiar with the study.
Among its recommendations could be a tougher stance by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., or CFIUS, a secretive multi-agency panel that reviews foreign acquisitions of U.S. assets for national security threats.

Right now, the field is Not level, Over 85% of China semiconductor usage has been imported, yet US still crying protectionism.

It's so lopsided right now, China determines to be more self sufficient. At least 50%, but US doesn't want that. It wants to keep China down. Alot of efforts , letters written US congressmen in blocking China acquitistion of US semiconductor firms. Obama has organized a study team and make recommendation to CFIUS to block China's investment into Semi. It's Not even dual use. It's strictly for commercial, but US wants to keep China away from semiconductor tech. In fact, anything is OK but semiconductor.
===================================================================

It's Clear whether China can truely rise depend whether it can be self sufficent (at least 75%) at Semiconductor. That's measuring stick.
Highspeed Rail is cool, Comac C919 is cool,
Y20 is cool, J20 is cool but those are Not the measuring stick.
