More than durian to China-Malaysia relations

Changes will surely occur. Chinese people shouldn't always relish Musang King while getting to know Malaysia only through Western media. Students learning Chinese in Malaysian universities also have better ways of knowing China than through CNN.

How South Korea can deal with a debilitating Japanese ban on semiconductor exports

China can learn the lessons from the trade row between Japan and South Korea. An ideal strategy is to develop both upstream and downstream technologies. When it comes to supplies, one should not put all eggs in one basket and try to maintain more suppliers rather than one.

Japan needs to balance alliance with a prickly US amid China's rise

Niggles don't bruise China-ASEAN ties

In the future, China and ASEAN should take economic cooperation as the strategic focal point. They should enhance the quality of joint projects so as to let ordinary people in ASEAN know better about China's development while trying to eliminate their negative image of China.

China leaves its mark in Philippines

The two China-financed bridges are not very outstanding among the tens of thousands of bridges in the Philippines, but they will certainly leave an impression on the country's modern history of bridge construction. This is just where Chinese footprints start.

Joint aircraft patrol boosts Russia-China strategic cooperation

Russia-China relations have reached an unprecedented level. In terms of security they can be described as a strategic partnership but without a similar obligation to the NATO Article V, which states that an attack on one member of NATO is an attack on all. Both countries want to preserve a free hand in their security decision-making. On the whole, Russia and China aim at playing a stabilizing role in the region.

Can the US mediate successfully in Japan-South Korea trade dispute?

South Korea has pinned hope on US mediation, but it's unclear whether Japan will show due respect for the US. If the US fails this time, it will lose trust from its allies. Its own prestige will be largely weakened. Washington's strategic implementation in Northeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region is likely to be greatly compromised.

For Abe, victory comes with a caveat

The Abe administration may be able to persuade members of the National Diet to support constitutional amendments through political promises and exchange of interests, etc. But it is obviously difficult to make the Japanese people to accept it.

Indonesia on track with China's standards

It is inevitable that Chinese technologies and standards will rise to promote the development of the West. If Western countries shut the door on Chinese technologies and standards just because of difference in ideologies, they are staring at isolation and backwardness.

Geopolitics should not muddle South Pacific

The China-Australia relationship, which is built upon mutual trust and prosperity on the back of trade and people-to-people contacts, has been strong. Their cooperation with a third party could also build upon the trust and provide a platform for communication between Beijing and Canberra. When it comes to military affairs, the only countries militarizing the region are Australia and the US.

Why US-Philippines ties are on upswing

Although the consolidation of US-Philippines alliance has not resulted in an immediate upheaval in China-Philippines relations, it could trigger negative factors in the South China Sea issue and provide possibilities for the US to implement the Indo-Pacific Strategy and boost military presence in the region.
