China must prepare for US' containment

With strong manufacturing capability and huge market potential, China's development is difficult to suppress. But the country will encounter more barriers in future development, to which we should learn to adapt. While the Trump administration is anxious about gains and losses, Chinese people have unfaltering confidence in China's future.

Trade war likely to usher world into chaos

Is the world on the eve of chaos? It appears so. The global trade war that US President Donald Trump threatens has become increasingly likely. This will change the world's perception on global order and 21st century international relations, and eventually cause a series of domino effects.

Canada's trade reprisal sends message to Trump

Ottawa is one of Washington's closest allies, and its gap with the US is far wider that that between Europe and the US. Canada's retaliations against the US suggest that the White House has gone too far this time. Washington has been mired in several wars in history, and shouldn't be mired in a trade war today.

Behind Taiwan leader's ravings is panic

The Taiwan administration has pinned all its hopes on the international community, or more precisely, the US. Washington is using Taiwan as a cheap pawn. Tsai is fully aware of the risks of being used by Washington, but has no alternative choice. Tsai and radical pro-independence forces should consider the consequences before acting so arrogantly and frantically.

Mattis should listen rather than criticize during visit to China

If the US fails to understand China's sense of insecurity, or misinterprets the necessity of the actions that China has taken to alleviate this sense of insecurity, tensions will be inevitable in Sino-US ties. We hope Mattis can take advantage of this visit to seek maximum common ground with China.

Stay calm on tech gap between China, West

China is a super society with unbalanced development, and it's hard to compare its technological development with that of the West's. Keeping a positive attitude domestically and overcoming international barriers is perhaps the most important goal.

Is Washington moving toward containing China?

Whether the US is really attempting to contain China isn't important. Even with US intent to contain China, it is difficult to form a comprehensive force. Focusing on domestic affairs is China's best response to containment.

Trump's trade war will disrupt world economic order

China's stance is justified. The country also has a systematic basis for political stability and enormous space for economic growth. It's a daunting task for the US to defeat such a competitive rival.

Trump's gamble bets on interests of US public

It is US arrogance to believe that a trade war will exhaust China. But the boot is on the other foot. Trade is mutually beneficial to both the US and China. Scuppering bilateral trade would cause similar suffering to both sides. This simple truth can never be wrong.

Huawei block sours Beijing-Canberra ties

Sino-Australian relations will be cast in a shadow. Perhaps a few Australians want their country to become a political enclave of the US, willing to be a leverage of US right-leaning China policy. But it will come with a price tag bereft of benefit to Australia.

China knows better as Trump tariff strategy tricks US voters

Dealing with the US is difficult, but China can easily refuse theft and coercion. China will remain with the US through negotiations and war. If a trade war between the two becomes fierce, the result will not provide a favorable political environment for President Trump.
