U. S. economic growth is expected to accelerate this year and next, yet remain modest, even if President Trump’s promised tax cuts and infrastructure spending are implemented, a survey found.
The economy will grow a solid 2.3 percent this year and 2.5 percent in 2018, according to 50 economists surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics.
President Donald Trump is set to announce a new White House office run by his son-in-law that will seek to overhaul government functions using ideas from the business sector.
A senior administration official said Trump on Monday will announce the White House Office of American Innovation. The official sought anonymity to discuss the office in advance of the formal rollout.
The plans for the office were first reported by The Washington Post.
The innovation office will be led by Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to Trump, and will report directly to the president.
Among those working on the effort are National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, Dina Powell, senior counselor to the president for economic initiatives and deputy national security adviser, Chris Liddell, assistant to the president for strategic initiatives and Reed Cordish, assistant to the president for intragovernmental and technology initiatives.
A 6,800-ton South Korean ferry was hoisted to the surface last week nearly three years after it capsized and sank in violent seas off the country’s southwestern coast, an emotional moment for the nation as it searches for closure to one of its deadliest disasters. More than 300 people — most of whom were students on a high school trip — died when the Sewol sank on April 16, 2014, touching off an outpouring of national grief and soul searching about long-ignored public safety and regulatory failures.
In other images from the Asia-Pacific region last week, about 50 farmers and activists opposed to a cement factory in Indonesia’s Central Java province encased their feet in concrete during a dayslong protest in Jakarta, the capital.

At first blush, the plight of former Chinese police official Zhao Liping might not win much sympathy.
When a court sentenced Zhao, who’d wielded enormous power over his fellow citizens, to death for murder and corruption, state media hailed the ruling as evidence of equality before the law. Reports called it a milestone in the country’s crackdown on misbehaving officials.
Yet Zhao’s brother is now questioning the verdict, saying the ex-official was abused in police custody and sentenced in a show trial — raising issues of justice that are rarely aired in politically sensitive, often tightly scripted cases.
“They want to execute my brother based on evidence that is too problematic,” Zhao Yifeng, a history professor at a university in the eastern city of Changchun, told The Associated Press.
Zhao, who had enjoyed broad powers as head of public security in the northern Chinese region of Inner Mongolia, was sentenced to death in November for murder, accepting bribes and the possession of firearms.
Authorities in Fort Worth say federal immigration agents arrested 26 parolees living in the country illegally as they performed community service.
Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn tells KXAS-TV (http://bit.ly/2o7GYcf ) his office participated in Sunday morning’s operation at the request of U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. An ICE spokesman confirmed the operation, but didn’t provide additional details.
Spokesman Carl Rusnock tells the station “ICE routinely conducts immigration enforcement operations locally and nationwide.”
Waybourn says those arrested were convicted of high-level misdemeanors or low-level felonies and were released from jail by mistake.
