    Turkish central bank says used Chinese yuan funding for first time

    As I've said, the worst has yet to come, so it's not a matter of who wins, but who can survive. So I would suggest you look into sectors related to basic survival needs say food/agriculture, pharmaceutical, ICT or military/defense. Currency-wise, I prefer RMB, Yen and to some extent Euro...

    China gives 97 percent duty-free access to Bangladeshi products

    As far as I know, other than SOE's that specialized in infra, there's growing interests among Chinese private investors/manufacturers to setup or expand in Bangladesh through factory relocations, especially in the growing export processing zones (EPZ's). I believe Chinese FDI will continue to...

    10 captives, Over 20 soldiers, including Commanding Officer killed at Galwan border clash with China

    I am familiar with macro financials of China but not that of USSR, so sorry I don't have a credible answer for you. Perhaps a Russian member here will know better. Back to your previous statement, I don't see US investment an influential factor in China-US rivalry, one obvious reason is the...

    China's 294 megatons of thermonuclear deterrence

    As mentioned above those numbers were only third party estimates, and very outdated, "surprisingly" no significant change since late 1980's (see below). But let's say you believe these old numbers, China's destructive power is already more than adequate, you should know a thermonuclear warhead...
