This generation has grown up in an era when China

has made tremendous economic achievements, and they have enjoyed affluent material conditions since childho

od. So they set higher standards for life and ask for better quality and unique experiences,” Tang said.

“Compared with the older generation, they are more willing to pay for conveni

ence, entertainment, mental stimulation, companionship and education that will benefit their future careers.”

George Ren, a senior partner with global consultancy Roland Berger, said many companies have star

ted to respond to this demographic shift in recent years, as they have seen great potential in the singles’ economy.

“They have made products of smaller size, in smaller packages or with more divided functions. They have also deve

loped unique and personalized services to cater to the diversified demands from single people,” he said.

Innovation will drive economy in the futurepowered robot welco

  Delivering the Government Work Report to the national legislature on Tuesday, Premier Li Keqiang said the country would do mo

re to boost innovation while laying the emphasis on ethical scientific research. Over the past few years, the fast development of Ch

ina’s science and technology sector has caught the eye of people both at home and abroad. How did China make brea

kthrough achievements in the science and technology sector? And what direction should the sector take in the futu

re? Two experts share their views on the issue with China Daily’s Liu Jianna. Excerpts follow:

  Several factors behind progress

  China has progressed by leaps and bounds in the science a

nd technology sector because of multiple factors. First, thanks to its rapid economic growth, Chin

a has invested huge funds in the science and technology sector. And the results are there for all to see.

  Second, China has used its research and development funds more effectively by employing more researchers in the field o

f science and technology thanks to the rising number of Chinese researchers and their somewhat low average income.

Economist offers insights on China’s global growth

When the whole world is searching for a therapy to calm the anxiety arising from economic slowdown, China, the most important global growth engine, provides its

routes to maintain vitality – through supportive macro policies and technology-driven innovation.

That point of view was shared by Zhu Min, an influential Chinese economist and a former deputy managing director of the Intern

ational Monetary Fund. He sat down for an exclusive interview with China Daily, when international media desi

re to learn the reasons for China’s 2019 economic performance at the ongoing annual two sessions in Beijing.

“We did a study that estimated China will continue to have more than 6.3 or 6.4 percent growth this year,” he predicted.

Even if the pace of growth moderates from last year’s 6.6 percent, China is able to m

aintain the strongest economic engine and contribute more than 30 percent of the worl

d’s GDP growth, said Zhu, who is now the chair of the National Institute of Financial Research at Tsinghua University.

By trying to consolidate foothold in CEE, Washington

After the aggressive speech by US Assistant Secretary Aaron Wess Mitchell in late October advocating the US to win influence in

Central and Eastern Europe, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo recently visited Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia.

Although Pompeo’s visit covered a wide array of issues including the Middle East, China, Russia, energy

, and security, they pointed to US ambitions in winning the race for influence in Central and Eastern Europe.

Since US President Donald Trump took office, US capabilities have been on the decline along with its willingness to prov

ide public goods to the international community. Although Washington clings to America First doctrine, it doesn’t mean it f

ollows a path of isolationism. The US sometimes provides regional goods to rebuild rules that are more favorable to it.

The US strategy in Central and Eastern Europe follows this logic.

The most important US presence in Central and Eastern Europe i

s the security cooperation under the NATO security framework. If the US wants to s

trengthen its clout in this region, it must win favor from those countries that strike a balance among major powers.
