Question: 1. I need friends in banking and financial fields.?
Well, look at it this way.... 35 years ago, just 35 years ago, Pres. Nixon (the first U.S. President who visited China) visit China. China then, was a third world country. I remember my parents saying: finish your food, lots of people are starving in China. China, then is poor and no surplus. The gift the Chinese gave Pres. Nixon then is a bicycle. Because, then when you mention Baijing, there are thousands of bicycle there. No BMW; or Mercedes Bentz; like now.
What happen then, where did the Chinese get their money (become surplus) to do dynamic investments and productions? Well, I think, it started when the mainland China, took over Hong Kong. They were able to take over Nanyang Commercial Bank. (owned by Tiger Balm) and the wealth therein. The platinum and gold bullions certificates. It is un-authorized, of course. but they
were able to convert. This is the "SURPLUS" of China; and with this surplus; they are able to manufacture, invest, and exports. I would say,
they don't allow their money to float against other world currencies. Sooo it's always cheaper in China but the people starve and the money is weak
