Stop bogus 'harmful Chinese tech' narrative


As the Chinese poem goes, “A thousand sails pass by the shipwreck, and ten thousand saplings shoot up beyond the withered tree.” Anyone who attempts to stand in the way and place a stumbling block on the road of China's scientific and technological development is doomed to fail.

US orchestrates self-defeating maneuvers

Chinese people do not know whether we should call US approaches hegemonic politics or profiteering politics. But in short, they are crooked means. The threat of tariffs will not work. Neither will US threats against Chinese companies create a shock wave against China. The US is picking a wrong opponent at a wrong time. It will find no way of crafting a good result from a strategic mistake.

Trade war may further worsen US local infrastructural woes

The public spending of the US federal government and that of state and local governments function differently. Nowadays many states lack money to improve public services and Chinese products at reasonable prices are lending a helping hand. But if they don't want help, then let it be.

US-Russia relations reset will not come easily

As the total volume of exports and imports between China and Russia exceeded $100 billion in 2018, the two sides are focusing on a $200 billion target.

President Xi will visit Russia in June and attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, further advancing the progress of China-Russian pragmatic cooperation. Against the backdrop of a China-US trade war, it is not easy to reset US-Russia relations, and China's relationship with Russia will continue to grow stronger.

Ren's mind-set fit to face down US

China can hardly make the US clear about all these issues. The only option for China is to do its own things well and accept the fact that the China-US trade war will last in the days that follow. As China becomes stronger, it will eventually see the US willing to reflect upon itself.

Now's the time for US to work with China

The issue of today is not whether China is a liberal domestic order. The issue of the day is whether China is working with the liberal international order. And I can tell you what a liberal international order is, because I was born in an era or what you call an illiberal international order in a British colony. And, as you know, when you are colonized you have no rights whatsoever.
