I have spent the last few days in China. The stock market has collapsed over the past year by 70 per cent as GDP growth has slowed from 10 per cent to 7 per cent. But the optimism amongst Chinese business people has not diminished and they remain confident that they can continue to generate wealth at a spectacular rate in the coming years.

China, Does it Matter to Britain?

Stephen Fear

I would urge anyone wanting to enter this lucrative market to look at joining one of the many associations, and also writing to the commercial department of the British Embassy for advice. That's what they're there for. Its easy to look up on the Internet and should be the first place to visit if you know nothing of exporting.

April Xiaoyi Xu

The People's Republic of China has partially failed to grant its citizens their full freedom in family planning. Although political and economic policies such as this three-decade old One-Child Policy may bring positive effects to the developments of a certain country, negative consequences that underlie with the moral and ethical concerns of the people should also be considered.

Paul Reynolds

The new Chinese leadership has, over the last 18 months, shown itself to be very different from that of successive Post-1980 reformist administrations. The 'market reform' rhetoric is still there.

Of course, it seems absurd to many that the world is concerned about Chinese growth slowing from 7% to 10%. But most countries in Europe would kill to achieve any growth at all at this point. The UK seems to be the exception in Europe with the IMF predicting that UK growth will be 3.2% in 2014, falling to 2.7 % in 2015.

What's Owen Paterson's Point?

Katie White | Posted 16.10.2014 | UK Politics
Katie White

Owen Paterson over the last few days has laid bare publically the argument he's clearly been pursing privately when he was David Cameron's Environment Secretary. In his view we should scrap the UK's Climate Change Act. Apparently he believes that global warming is man-made, his "issue" is with how we deliver it and specifically onshore wind farms. I'm not sure that really is the case.

Flying wingsuits in demanding environments is not without its risk. All events have to take this seriously and, as the sport and wingsuit technology advances, so does the competitive landscape. Red Bull Aces is a novel concept and, instead of leaping from mountains, competitors exit a plane. They then fly head-to-head through a slalom course with gates suspended below hovering helicopters.

In the run-up to Hong Kong's occupation protests, the initiators of the movement were called "radicals" and "extremists" and their actions dubbed "terrorism". Yet the young people peacefully demonstrating for universal suffrage across the city have won hearts and minds across the world in what amounts to a meticulous reading of peaceful dissent. By putting the "civil" in "civil disobedience", these young protesters have already won an important moral victory, no matter what happens next.
