Which countries are most exposed to China?

The recent drop in China’s stock prices has rekindled interest in the economic impact of a possible slowdown in China’s economic growth. China is now the second largest importer worldwide (closely following the United States), international trade is an important channel through which the Chinese economy can sway growth elsewhere. To gauge which countries would be most affected through direct trade linkages, the table below reports exports to China as a share of total exports for major advanced and emerging economies. The sample consists of the members of the G-20. The data refer to merchandise exports and are drawn from the International Monetary Fund’s Direction of Trade Statistics.

China economy "not falling off a cliff": DBS chief -AFP

China's economy may be slowing but it is "not falling off a cliff", the chief executive of Southeast Asia's biggest bank said Friday.
DBS Bank chief executive Piyush Gupta also said he does not see a repeat of the 1997-1998 Asian financial crisis arising from the turmoil in Chinese markets because the region is on a far stronger footing than it was 18 years ago.
A slowdown in the Chinese economy, a sharp fall in share prices and the devaluation of the yuan against the US dollar have hammered financial markets worldwide, underscoring China's rising role as a global economic growth engine.

How Xi Jinping let financial regulators run out of control - Victor Shih

The central government wrongly used the upswing in stock markets as a proxy for real reforms, says associate professor Victor Shih in the Washington Post. Until those shares came down and created mayhem in China and globally. ""In dictatorships, when things are going well, nobody wants to end the party."

*The Verdict on China´s Easing of Foreign Property Rules? A Resounding ´Meh´- WSJ

While some countries are starting to put the brakes on the onslaught of foreign property investors, China is doing the opposite.

Beijing’s latest move to loosen restrictions for foreign investors and homebuyers in the Chinese property market could draw some attention to the lackluster sector, but it’s unlikely to help the country regain its crown as an investors’ darling.

Only Way Is Up for China Markets as Xi Prepares for WWII Parade - Bloomberg

Chinese stocks rallied for a second day and the yuan gained the most since April on speculation authorities are propping up markets before President Xi Jinping takes the stage at a World War II victory parade next week.
The government resumed intervention in equities on Thursday to halt the biggest selloff since 1996, according to people familiar with the matter. China’s central bank strengthened the yuan’s reference rate by the most in five months Friday, a move that suggests policy makers are trying to “save face” before the Sept. 3 parade, according to Brilliant and Bright Investment Consultancy Ltd.

Can China´s One-Child Policy Enforcers Transform Rural Education?

 The Shanghai stock market is in free fall, and pundits (and Donald Trump) are in a frenzy. Bubbles, booms and collapses are the bread and butter of China punditry -- they get clicks and boost ratings.

But if you want a glimpse into China’s economic future, tear yourself away from the stock tickers and take a look at Heigouhe (“Black Ditch River”) Village. It’s here in this forgotten corner of central China that a team of researchers from Stanford University and several Chinese institutions are untangling one of the country's greatest long-term economic challenges: tens of millions of rural kids growing up cognitively stunted, lacking the mental dexterity to learn or find work in the new China.

A 2011 Paper Totally Predicted What´s Happening With China´s Economy Now

In March 2011, economists Barry Eichengreen, Donghyun Park, and Kwanho Shin released a working paper titled “When Fast Growing Economies Slow Down: International Evidence and Implications for China.” The paper focused on the rapid growth of large emerging markets in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, and in particular, the double-digit growth coming out of China. Then it asked: When might China’s economic engine slow down?

Nice authentic Chinese food (not spoiled by European tastes) that is very good when you are craving for Chinese food after too much Italian. Preparation was a bit fast-food style, but tasting pretty well. Staff was very friendly and the atmosphere, well, real Chinese.
