After performing This Life of Mine in 2011, Fang began to plan other adaptations of Lao She’s works.

ndarin teacher at the University of London from 1924 to 1929. Last year, he directed another all-male cast play titled Lao She’s Six Stories, based on six short sto

y to ignore such a great novel,” he says. “The story is about a young man’s struggle against his social environment, a

Foreign investors’ access to onshore stock index futures

“Moreover, as foreign investors’ trading helps boost liquidity in the domestic market and makes the price changes mor

e consistent with international trends, domestic market participants can also better hedge against risks,” he said.

Experts also expect China to open up the stock index futures mark

et to foreign investors, as they have large exposure in t

he A-share market and are therefore in need of this risk management tool.

Foreign investors’ access to onshore stock index futures is an “infrastructure” for fin

ancial market opening-up, without which foreign investors’ passion for Chinese shares may be dampened, said Wa

ng Maobin, investment department chair at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.

The future growth prospects of today’s early-stage (that is

lower-income-some growing and others not) developing countries will be of huge importance in red

ucing poverty further. Although these countries face significant headwinds, they could also seize imp

ortant new growth opportunities-especially with the help of digital platforms.

The headwinds are certainly considerable. For starters, advances in digital technolo

gies-robotics, machine learning, sensors, and vision-directly threaten the labor-intensive manu

facturing and assembly upon which lower-income, nonresource-rich economies have traditionally relied.

Moreover, climate change has had its greatest economic impact on the tropical and subtropical regio

ns where most of the lower-income countries are located. The effects of global warming are highly disrup
