G20 leaders privately share economic fears about Trump

G20 Summit(Media Release) Canada’s Finance Minister Bill Morneau and some of his G20 counterparts have privately exchanged concerns about the impact on international financial markets and the potential harm to the fragile global economy of a Donald Trump presidency.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has held similar worried discussions with world leaders, including Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and U.S. President Barack Obama, federal insiders say.

Officially the government has a firm policy of not commenting on the American presidential election, but unofficially a Trump win is high on the radar of the Liberal cabinet as Mr. Trump has begun to close the gap in the polls with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee.

“I will go about my work as Minister of Finance and leave the opining of the U.S. election to you,” Mr. Morneau told reporters Tuesday when asked if it was time for Canada to stand up to Mr. Trump, who called the North American free-trade agreement the “worst trade deal in history” in Monday’s presidential debate.

But one senior member (Free-Pr-Online.com) of the Prime Minister’s inner circle said Mr. Trump’s anti-free trade and protectionist rhetoric has been a topic of intense discussion among G7 and G20 finance ministers and among world leaders, who expect chaos in global markets if the Republican nominee were to win the Nov. 8 presidential election.

The senior official said one big Canadian worry is the impact of Mr. Trump’s promised protectionist measures including his pledge to tear up the North American free-trade agreement.Liberal MP Wayne Easter, chairman of the House of Commons Finance Committee, said that the “official line from the government of Canada has to be that we will work with whomever is President.”

But Mr. Easter said Ottawa is well aware of the importance of trying to calm and stabilize global markets should Mr. Trump emerge victorious.

The government is also doing its homework in closely examining the policy platforms of Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton.Mr. Easter said part of the Canadian strategy – in the event of a Trump victory – is to enlist the U.S. business community to explain to the New York real estate tycoon how supply chains have closely integrated the U.S and Canadian economies.

“If you try to tear up trade agreements like NAFTA, it’s going to impact thousands and thousands of jobs in both countries because they are all supply chains,” Mr. Easter said.

He added there is an expectation in Ottawa that Mr. Trump’s advisers would be able to “moderate” the Republican nominee’s harsh protectionist views if he were elected.Craig Alexander, chief economist at the Conference Board of Canada, said the Canadian government has every reason to be anxious about what a Trump presidency would mean for global economic stability.

“I don’t think there is any doubt that a Trump victory would be negatively, initially, responded to by financial markets because financial markets hate uncertainly,” he said. “If you look at the platform that Donald Trump has been running on, combined with the comments he makes, it creates a lot of uncertainty as to what policies would arise if he were actually in the White House.”

Mr. Alexander said Canada is highly dependent on a healthy trade relationship with the United States, where the vast majority of exports go.

Any move to impose protectionist measures would impact Canada and Mexico but also weaken global growth, he said.Scott Clark, a former deputy minister of finance who drew up contingency plans during the 1995 Quebec referendum, said it would be very difficult for the G20 to concretely prepare for a possible Trump victory.

“It’s hard to know how to co-ordinate. I don’t know what you can about do it, quite frankly,” Mr. Clark said. “The thought that that person could be president of the United States is pretty scary, but if it happens there is going to be one big headache the next day. Markets will go south. There is no doubt about it.”

Mr. Clark said it’s unlikely the G7 or G20 would call an emergency session and more likely world leaders would cross their fingers and hope that “reality would take over and he wouldn’t be as crazy as he is.”

The Trudeau cabinet also has concerns about Ms. Clinton, who has become more protectionist in response to the political mood of the U.S. electorate. Ms. Clinton has promised to appoint a trade prosecutor who would report directly to her if she is elected president.

Still, the Canadian government would much prefer dealing with Ms. Clinton, who has vast government experience and is considered more rational in policy making than Mr. Trump, an official said.In a report issued in June, Capital Economics, an independent research group, warned that a Trump win would be very bad for Canada’s economy.

“If he doesn’t push the U.S. economy into recession by slashing public spending, Canada’s exports might end up as collateral damage in his push to increase protectionism,” the report said.

Republicans frustrated over perceived missed opportunities for Trump at debate

clinton-trump(Media Release) Leading Republicans vented frustration Tuesday that the first presidential debate was a missed opportunity for Donald Trump to magnify Hillary Clinton’s biggest vulnerabilities, lamenting the lack of focus on her personal email server, the Clinton Foundation and the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

On Capitol Hill, some GOP members of Congress blamed Trump for not raising the issues with more frequency and intensity. Others held moderator Lester Holt responsible for not pressing Clinton harder. Some normally chatty members kept quiet altogether.

“If anything, I think he held back in a few instances where maybe he should have gone on the attack,” said Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), a Trump supporter.

The reactions reflected a collective sense of deflation among Republicans after a rough night when Clinton repeatedly lured (Free-Pr-Online.com) Trump into defending himself and lobbing tangential personal attacks against her and others, rather than sticking to the case he has been prosecuting with more discipline in recent weeks.

“I don’t think there was probably as fulsome a discussion as there could have been last night because they did get off on some other issues,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), who backs Trump.

In the end, it was Clinton who walked away with an abundance of fresh fodder for attack ads, including one she launched online Tuesday featuring a former Miss Universe winner explaining how Trump insulted her for gaining weight — an attack he repeated in a Fox News interview Tuesday morning.

In speeches, conference calls and photo-ops staged in the fortnight leading up to the debate, Trump and his campaign waged a meticulous effort to draw attention to Clinton’s missteps, including her labeling of half of Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.”

But during the debate in Hempstead, N.Y., he didn’t once utter the words. And while he mentioned Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, calling on her to release thousands of emails she said were personal and deleted, he missed a chance to raise it again during a question about cybersecurity.

“As far as the cyber, I agree to parts of what Secretary Clinton said. We should be better than anybody else, and perhaps we’re not,” Trump said, before talking about unflattering leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.

While a criminal probe led to no charges against Clinton for her email practices, Republicans have held up her secretive approach and questionable handling of sensitive material as a chief reason she cannot be trusted. Polls have shown that the issue worries voters as well.

“For her to get a pass and act like she’s gotten past it, I don’t think that’s appropriate,” Tillis said. “I think those are the sorts of things that he should continue to make the American people remind them[selves] of, because I think it’ll be consequential in November.”

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.), one of Trump’s most vocal advocates on Capitol Hill, said Trump did the best he could under difficult circumstances.

“The moderator has a tough job. But I think you’ve got some — the priority issues, the debt, the economy, jobs, the foreign policy crisis. And you’ve got all these things that weren’t talked about — the Benghazi situation, her emails, the foundation. I’m really troubled that we didn’t get there in this debate.”

At one point in the debate, it appeared that Trump might have been gearing up to attack Clinton over the deaths of four Americans in the 2012 assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Instead, the two sparred over the invasion of Iraq and the formation of the Islamic State.

Speaking Tuesday morning, Trump knocked Holt for the way he handled the role of moderator.

“Well, he didn’t ask her about the emails at all. He didn’t ask her about her scandals. He didn’t ask her about the Benghazi deal that she destroyed,” Trump said on Fox News. “He didn’t ask her about a lot of things that she should have been asked about. I mean, there’s no question about it. He didn’t ask her about her foundation. Why? I don’t know.”

One of Trump’s central charges against Clinton is that she has manipulated her positions of authority for financial gain — “Crooked Hillary,” as he calls her on the campaign trail. But Trump did not mention the Clinton Foundation at all, which has been at the center of conservatives’ accusations that she traded access for donations as secretary of state.

Some Republicans kept their post-debate reviews remarkably brief on Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) offered a nine-word assessment at an afternoon news conference: “On the debate, I thought he did just fine.”

“I didn’t see it, guys. I was on an airplane,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), one of Trump’s vanquished primary foes, who now supports him.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), another Trump rival-turned-backer, repeatedly brushed off debate questions. In an earlier interview with conservative host Hugh Hewitt, Cruz said he would have liked to have heard more discussion about the Supreme Court.

Many Republicans, particularly those who are not hardcore Trump supporters, have pointed to the vacancy on the court as an incentive to support him over Clinton.

However, Trump did not bring it up once Monday night. Separately — and inexplicably to some Republicans — Trump reignited his feud with Rosie O’Donnell, saying the comedian and actress deserved the criticism he has directed at her.

Clinton came to the debate prepared to steer the discussion toward her preferred topics. She introduced the tens of millions watching to Alicia Machado, the 1996 Miss Universe winner from Venezuela who has said Trump called her “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.”

“She gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem,” Trump told Fox News Tuesday.

Democrats sounded confident that the debate showcased the portrait they are painting of Trump as an unpresidential loose cannon.

“Anybody who comes unhinged like he did over 90 minutes — that’s not who you want in pressure-cooker situations, because he’s clearly not up to handling it,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), a Clinton supporter.

Overview of construction industry of Indonesia

Indonesia is currently evolving as one of the leading Asian economy with a significant growth rate and fast paced development. After 1990’s Indonesia has witnessed spectacular growth which was led by manufacturing and service sector (especially tourism). The agricultural sector no longer remains the dominating sector. Thus, in order to attain subtle (Free-Pr-Online.com) growth and development, Indonesian government introduced policies to induce development of infrastructure to foster economic growth. This has led to undertaking of huge infrastructural projects in Indonesia. Signature tower floors, Kalibaru post, Peruri 88 floors, Jakarta-Bandung super express, Trans Java toll road, etc. are some major megaprojects undertaken by Indonesian construction industry.

Major construction firms like PT PLN Persero, PT Kayan Hydro Energy, Sarula Operations, PT Paiton, PT Lestari Banten, PT Antam, PT DSSP Power Sumsel, PT Kereta API Indonesia (PT KAI), PT KAI Commuter Jabodetabek (KCJ), PT Mass Rapid Transit Jakarta, PT Jakarta Monorail (PT JM), Indonesia Ministry of Transport, Indonesia Ministry of Public Works, Jakarta City Administration have undertaken numerous commercial and residential projects which is aiding expansion of Indonesian construction sector.

Key drivers of demand

Many factors have led to rapid rise in demand for infrastructure, some of which are listed below:

  • Rapid rise in standard of living

With rise in GDP and growth in Indonesia, standard of living has also increased substantially. This hassled to rapid urbanization in the economy laden to rising demand for residential projects.

  • Population boom

Like other developing nations, Indonesia is also witnessing rapid increase in population which is leading to rise in consumption demand and demand for residential projects.

  • Infrastructure demand by manufacturing sector

Since Indonesian economy is heavily dependent on secondary and tertiary sector it requires construction of basic infrastructure like roads, railways, etc. demand for sophisticated construction projects like commercial buildings is also rising.

  • Rising public investment

Government in order to attain GDP target is rapidly improving investment in infrastructural projects which is leading to rapid expansion of Indonesian construction sector.

Future of construction industry

Indonesian construction industry is expected to enlarge further with more multibillionaire megaprojects being undertaken. However, there are some challenges and risk posed to the industry which are as follows:

  • Dearth of investment in the construction industry
  • Falling GDP in recent past
  • Inefficiency in implementation of policies
