Dear Emil Levendoglu
I attended the wonderful AIIB 2017 in Jeju. I am writing to you in connection with UK
(and English-Speaking) participation in AIIB
2018 is a critical year of mediations for youth and our futures. Would a meeting be possible if information below is
worth more detailed clarification?
Chinese and English
speaking students are 10 years into the last journalism project my father Norman Macrae (also a close comrade of Lord Stern)
started. This media project concerns how did the miraculous development of China and Bangladesh connect with women holding
up half the sky, and what are the educational, technology and investment implications for win-win trading nations regionally,
worldwide and among under 30s wanting (livelihoods aligned) to being sustainability generations
I have summarised in a footnote how/why my fathers 40+ years The Economist made him
his generation's most connected Keynsian end-poverty searcher of postive East-West trading models. His globalisation dialogues
starting with Japan in 1962 for which, on retirement, he was awarded The Emperors Order of Rising Sun , reaching celebration
of exponential rise of China from 1977 - as well as his debates from moon landing onwards of what changes could positively
happen if the world invested 1000 times more in connectivity technologies 2016 versus 1946
SINO-SOUTH ASIA REPORT -CELEBRATE BELT ROADS WIN-WINS
Here are our main conclusions relevant for 2018 as a year in which
the Sino-India-Bangladesh-Asean corridor is one of the important neighborship arcs of china's 360 degree trading compass as
the middle kingdom. If you or anyone would like to meet to discuss the details of about 100 hours of student interviews/videos
mainly in Bangaldesh, please say. Visa issues notwithstanding I can usually travel anywhere appropriate quickly.
location on south coastal belt of Eurasia hasnt yet been linked into positive worldwide trade primarily because of historical
partitioning of India that my grandfather Sir Kenneth Kemp was accidentally responsible for in a legislative sense
2 If there
were not national barriers, logical Belt Road moves would straight-line rail and pipes from Beijing through Chengdu to the
coast probably intersecting in the need for a superport at Cox's Bazaar (near the Myanmar bodrer in world war 2 this
was a key american port)
2a A straight line "Road" East of Cox's Bazaar through Myanmar
could connect trading to Hong Kong-Shenzhen; West of Cox's Bazaar through India to Gwadar. A third straight line from Chengdu
to Gwadar would pass through Delhi integrating South Asia, China and Asean.
the whole coastal belt from Singapore across Bangladesh leaping over to India-Pakistan coast then across to UAE , Suez facing
nations through to Med Sea was primarily turned into win-lose trading zones by British Empire's mercantile business model.
If we accept that, this is a good time for Brentrance (at least english-sino language learning youth networking hubs) to help
positively mediate south asia and china and gulf/suez/med sea facing nations. China's extreme innovations in edutech make
this good news story easy for cultural entrepreneurs to celebrate artistically and in other ways that Jack Ma, DAMO
&Tsingua alumni networks, Taobao and China G20 promised to Expo at all future Olympics. Back in Marco Polo's Silk Road
times most of the borders now with extreme refugee problems were diversely positive win-win trading areas
3a How China
and Bangladesh from 1971 started valuing womens livelihoods as much as men is complementary and miraculous. Every 5th grade
teacher should be current with its conseqeunces for all our children. By the early 1970s the operation of regional superports
made the Chinese Diaspora the 3rd biggest investment network. They inward invested in China mainland with perfect win-win
infsratructure moves on all sides, as well as indomitable Confucian Spirit. Over a billion people leaped out of poverty. Over
90% of the future impacts of these peoples is not jobs-competitive with old industrial age markets: instead with edutech linkin
worldwide youth to collaborating around being the sustainability generation - growing people , renewing every local comunity
and racing to align with mother earth's exponential designs
3b Bangladesh is a miracle starting
with next to nothing. Here after our hundred of hours of interviews with leaders at Grameen and BRAC which included work for
the soft launch of journal of social business with Adam Smith scholars at Glasgow University we monitor how and why Sir Fazle
Abed BRAC est 1972 always enjoyed deeper trust and tech partnerships than Dr Yunus in spite of Yunus becoming a family friend
celebrating my father's last public birthday party in London St James 2008.
It is the
knowhow of BRAC and partners (the world's largest education system grounded in community's livelihhods not just academic classrooms,
the economic origin of both conditional cash transfer and postive cash flow models of girl empowered aid) that can value girls
in the most desperately disadvantaged communities: to unite the whole region - ie much of the poverty alleviation still needed
in India is not likely to resolve the deepest exclusion problems without some Chinese students and technologists knowing how
BRAC's 45 years of girls lift up half the sky is networked. Ironically in the 1970s BRAC and China did collaborate on rice
science needed to end local famines and prioritised preferential attention to barefoot doctors - something that (as Jim Kim
and George Soros testify to) BRAC remains a world benhmark for in many diseases most challenging in the Indian subcontinent.
Aditionally those who took leapfroging experiments of mobile and microsolar to Bangladesh in 1996 also shared these catalytic
mechanisms for rejuvenation dreams with China at the same time.

father was among last students mentored by Keynes at Cambridge Corpus Christi (a few years before Manmohan Singh enjoyed
the same tutors minus Keynes) ; fathers lifelong work at The Economist started in 1948 ; it was his belief that the east innovations
of post-colonial and post carbon models offered sustainable world trade maps; and while he understood Orwell's and John von
Neumann's (in retirement Macrae wrote JvN's biography) concerns that a technology networked world might vicionsly spiral to
big brother endgames he argued the opposite little sister community-linked in global economy was both possible and would need
