For the last six years, Ma has run an expedition company in partnership with Nepali climb

ers, and it was her company which organized this year’s expedition for the Chinese trio.

For her, the main objective of forming an all-women team was to chal

lenge perceptions and break down barriers for women in the largely male-dominated cl

imbing world. However, it was a daunting task for the three to climb Mount Qomo

langma this year, because of the limited window for climbing and different speeds of the team members.

“There’s no question that China is the most significant destinati

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agricultural products

such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

roductivity in the service sector, which is an important thing that China is focusing on to stabilize economic growth,” Zhu said.

Chen Yulu, a vice-governor of the PBOC, also supported a “full-scale” opening of the financial sector. In the future, foreign invest

Li Daokui, director of the Academic Center for Chinese Economic Practice and Thinking at Tsing

hua University, said China “should be more confident” in accelerating opening-up of its financial sec

tor, which will help global investors seize numerous opportunities in the Chinese market.

Domestic financial institutions are now capable of engaging in fiercer competition with global peers as their serv

ice abilities in many aspects, such as banking and insurance, have improved a lot over the past years, Li said.

The IMF research, citing official data, found that the

 revenue collected by the US government through hefty tariffs on Chinese imports, has been paid almost entirely by US importers.

“Some of these tariffs have been passed on to US consumers, such as those on washing machines, wh

ile others have been absorbed by importing firms through lower profit margins,” the research said.

Any further increase in tariffs will likely be passed through to consumers, it said.

China and the US, the world’s two largest economies, have been embroi

led in a tit-for-tat trade confrontation over the past few months. Washington threatened to fur

ther escalate a tariff war and increased tensions by tightening restrictions on Chinese companies.

Earlier this month, the US raised tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports from 10 percent to 25 percent, and China took coun

termeasures. Then the US administration listed about $300 billion more of Chinese goods for possible tariff hikes.

Compadrazgo, a Spanish word that literally translates to

co-fatherhood”, is based on a kinship ritual that is formed after a child gets baptized into the Roman Catholic faith.

For the predominantly Catholic and close-knit Philippine society, the go

dfather (known as the padrino) is part of one’s extended family and is expected to h

elp and protect his godchild. The godchild is expected to respect and be loyal to the padrino.

Bapakism is derived from the Indonesian word for “father”. When used

in Indonesian business, bapakism demands great respect and obedience to one’s supe

rior. The manager in his role as the company’s bapak is expected to look after and care for his employees.

Although Asian values are steeped in an ancient culture and tradition, it was
