China is showing strong signs of an economic rebound amidst pent-up demand at home and abroad, we examine the trends in several articles that all point to the same direction: growth. Arguably the news with the greater long-term global impact is the connection of Russian and Iranian banking networks as countries look for SWIFT alternatives.

Central Asian trade continues to be robust, while we look at increasing ties between Pakistan and Russia, and China with Turkiye. We have important tax updates in the UAE as compliance is pending with June 1st deadline for a new tax regime. Finally, we look at the Russian Far East, bordering China, where foreign direct investment increased by 23% in 2022.
