It is clear from this year’s Davos conference that while America has shifted its attention from maintaining the world order to strengthening its domestic economics, China is making use of the “leadership vacuum” and trying to convince the world that it is qualified.

Since the start of 2017, China’s economy has shown a stable recovery supported by the better-than-expected exports, high industrial reserves, and a hot property market.
