"Here you have a [foreign] government still claiming the waters and the continental shelf even ...Keep on reading: Ex-SolGen says PH-China deal nullifies int’l arbitral ruling.....»»

But India and the Philippines, which have less trade with China, will hardly be affected," Oxford Economics economists Louis Kuijs and Priyanka Kishore said in a Nov. 20 report titled "2019 outlook still positive despite US-China ...Keep on reading: UK think tank: US-China spat won’t drag down PH growth.....»»
