Position Paper for Peaceful Protest
China believes that a citizen’s right to peaceful protest is not a topic of much relevance. Each individual country’s government should have the freedom to deal with protestors in whatever manner they deem fitting and fair.
A more meaningful issue to discuss is the slowing of China’s economic growth, caused by investor concerns brought on by pandemic limitations, and issues lying in the property sector, such as the 1917.8 billion yuan debt that the China Evergrande group has accumulated.
This issue is important when considering China’s worldwide role as a source of imports and exports, as well as China’s massive impact on the foreign exchange market. China represents the world’s second largest economy and holds over 9.3 percent of the annual global GDP (gross domestic product). This implies that declining growth within China’s domestic economy has significant negative effects on the economies of other countries, especially so regarding China’s export hold on technological productivity assets, such as broadcasting equipment ($208 billion), computers ($141 billion), and telephones ($55 billion).
China recommends that other countries subsidize a boost in China’s economy.
