Geraci on CCTV Dialogue discusses the importance of enhancing mutual understanding of cultures in order to enhance China-EU relationship. He strongly emphasised the need for cross cultural learning to start at early age, high school or even earlier.

When Michele Geraci was interviewed by CRI, he showed great appreciation for the “Innovation growth model”, which is proposed in G20, at Hangzhou, China. “The introduction of innovation in the agenda of G20 is a very positive thing, and it is the first time that we put it in the foreground of the G20, and also, it is very important that this time the G20 is held in China. It is China that is taking the lead at this meeting, and it is China that needs to change its development model and base it more on innovation.
The RMB is now officially part of the SDR basket. Until couple of years ago, many people in China, including finance experts, had never heard of SDR. The big question is now, “What is the direction of causality between RMB Internationalisation and importance of SDR”. In other words, will the accession to SDR push for more reforms so that RMB internationalization may progress faster? Or, could it be that, since even the RMB is in the basket, the importance of the SDR will be declining, from already pretty much insignificant levels? Geraci was guest on CCTV Dialogue to discuss with issues, together with Xiang Songzuo.

Hangzhou is following Xiamen and Suzhou’ policy on restriction of non-local residents purchasing houses. Non-local residnets is becoming the main force of house purchasing since 2016. After G20, the oursiders purchase rate accounts for 39.3%, and among them, 25.4% purchase two houses.

Geraci was a guest for Al Jazeera TV to discuss Mao’s legacy in today’s China. He thinks today’s China is totally different from China in 1950. China is today 70% capitalist and 30% socialist. He divides Chinese people into two groups. The older people and the younger people. The people who are older have benefits from the last thirty year’s economic reform. They do have memory, but they don’t think much about Mao. The people who are younger have never suffered as they parents and grandparents did, so they are also not very interested in knowing what happing in the past.
