Watching my brother Thomas organize the raising and decorating of the Christmas tree in Germany’s Bad Soden Catholic Church. Of 10 volunteers three were from Eritrea , two from Somalia. Merry Christmas to all.

The first round of the US-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue was held in Washington DC. The U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and China’s Vice Premier Wang Yang co-hosted the dialogue.
This new dialogue was established by Presidents Xi Jinping and Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago April meeting in Palm Beach. Since then, the 100-day economic plan for cooperation between the world’s two largest economies has achieved results. The low-hanging fruit harvest addressed agricultural products, agricultural cooperation, financial cooperation, and infrastructure investment cooperation. In addition, China abolished restrictions on imports of American beef. The U.S. delegation in turn attended the international cooperation forum held in May in Beijing, as a signal of support for China’s “Belt and Road” initiative. (The Belt and Road Initiative is a development strategy proposed by China’s president Xi Jinping that focuses on connectivity and cooperation between Eurasian countries, including the land-based Silk Belt and the Maritime Silk Road.)
