Xi Jinping Seeks Global Leadership

 1 min read / 

The Chinese president attempted to take the lead on globalisation and trade issues with his Davos speech.#

Editor’s Remarks:His speech at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Switzerland, in front of some 1,600 delegates, launches China’s ploy to take up the mantle of global leadership that some expect America to vacate with its President-elect’s US-centric economic proposals. “No one will emerge a winner in a trade war,” said the leader of the world’s second-largest economy, in a thinly-veiled attempt to wheel himself into the poster boy for globalisation in response to Trump’s protectionist posturing. Some will question China’s readiness for world leadership, though – and key Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci countered with insistence on his incoming administration’s pro-free trade intent, arguing among other things that a post-Brexit trade deal with the UK will be expedited faster than most thanks to his “hard charger” boss and “result-oriented” team.
