NBC: China Offers Trump ‘Positive and Open Attitude Toward Cooperation’

November 14, 2016 — 

As NBC reports:

China is the world’s undisputed construction superpower, spending more on infrastructure than North America and Western Europe combined, according to a report published last June by global consulting firm McKinsey & Company.

China used more cement in three years (6.6 gigatons in 2011-2013) than the U.S. during the entire 20th century (only 4.5 gigatons from 1901-2000), according to a book by Vaclav Smil, a professor of environmental science at Canada’s University of Manitoba.
