Live news: China cuts 7-day reverse repo rate for first time in 9 months

The EU has pledged to nearly double its financing for sustainable investments in Latin America and the Caribbean, because the bloc seeks to maintain tempo with China’s quickly rising presence within the area.

On a go to to Brasília on Monday, Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Fee, introduced the EU would make €10bn accessible for inexperienced tasks as a part of its International Gateway infrastructure initiative.
