And, despite ongoing tensions, the total value of impo

orts and exports rebounded sharply in March, reaching 9.6 percent higher than March 2018. S

o, overall trade grew by 3.7 percent year-on-year in the quarter despite low growth rates in January and Febru

ary. Exports of electrical and mechanical products, which are higher value added, grew by 5.4 percent in the qua

rter. And, private sector trade grew 9.9 percent, far more than the overall growth rate.

I am worried to see that total investment in real estate grew by 11.8 per

cent year-on-year. Having lived through the 2008 finan

cial crisis in the United States, I’m wary of continued high investment in real estate in a time when property prices are al

ready astonishingly high and China’s living space per person has already surpassed that in Europe.

The bottom line is that fiscal and monetary policies combined with policies to promote structural transformation have

achieved a stable macroeconomic situation and steady movement toward supply side upgrading.

After 9/11, the US surveillance became more intensif

fied. Shortly after the attack, the US government introduced the Patriot Act, the Accuracy Act and

the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which formed a comprehensive intelligence surv

eillance network. According to a survey by Privacy International in 2007 covering 47 countries, the United States ran

ked first in the monitoring index. But the United States didn’t stop there. In 2013, Edward Snowden, a technical an

alyst at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), exposed the Prism program. In this seven-year top-secret electronic sur

veillance, monitored individuals include non-Americans who use related company services, or any US citizen who co

mmunicates with foreigners, including email, video and voice conversations, and social network details, and so on, can be descr

ibed as large-scale indiscriminate monitoring. Surveillance states were finally formed.
