The Chinese model of economic growth has produced impressive results in the past several decades, while the rates of economic growth and exports and imports growth have been the highest in the world. It has been based on cheap money, cheap labour and resources, while the investment basis has been high rates of reinvestment profits. The most dynamic sector of the Chinese manufacturing exports has been processing trade. For this reason, it is called export-led growth model. The new model, which was announced in 2011, should result in some change of the main driving forces of exports growth – apart from investments and exports, consumption should play a significant role. In this way, growth would be driven by a combined impact of primary, secondary and tertiary sectors, by stimulating of domestic consumption, improvement of investment mix, further industrialisation, urbanisation and modernisation of agriculture.

One of the most important phenomena in US politics is Christian Zionism. The term Christian Zionism is related to unity of a large part of Protestant beliefs and the Zionists movement. The religious motives of US Protestants have coincided with the Jewish intention to go back to Palestine. In this way, Protestant religious motives could only be achieved by using political pressure on the US government. The goal of this pressure is to turn the foreign policy of Washington into a struggle for reconstruction and maintenance of the state of Israel. That is why many people wrongly believe that the US policy in Middle East is a product of the Jewish lobby. However, the US foreign policy in Middle East is a product of religious beliefs of Christian Zionists and the Jewish lobby is just using this fact for its own purposes.

The European Court of Human Rights plays an important role in protecting the rights of asylum seekers and illegal migrants through a set of different human rights. Requests for interim measures under Rule 39 of the Rules of Court have also great importance. In cases involving illegal migrants and asylum-seekers, the Court was often in a difficult position, given the contradictions that could arise from the protection of human rights and the legitimate aim of the Contracting States to control the entry, residence and expulsion of aliens. The recent Courts judgments in the case of M. S. S. against Belgium and in the case of Jama Hirsi and others v. Italy are particularly important because of their remarkable influence on the perception of the common asylum system in the EU.

The protection of intellectual property rights can be of a great importance for the development of a society. It can contribute to strengthening of the economy and improve the standard of living. The international community has established standards for the protection of intellectual property rights through relevant international documents, thus providing guidelines for the improvement of their international protection. The states which are leaders in innovation and creativity establish strong legal mechanisms that provide the protection of intellectual property rights. It is generally accepted that only the legal use of intellectual property can bring innovation and progress to a society. It is necessary for all sectors, including copyright owners, internet providers and advertising brokers, to cooperate with state prosecutors in order to find practical and efficient solutions for the protection of intellectual property rights. Types of intellectual property infringement are usually manifested through illegal production, smuggling and distribution of counterfeit products, through criminal offences involving money laundering as well as trademark, name and copyright infringement. Criminal investigations are thus focused on identifying, obstructing and disabling international criminal organizations which deal with criminal activities aimed at intellectual property infringement.
