Will EU, Japan follow US lead in waging tech cold war against China?

The US government is trying to persuade wireless and internet providers in allied countries, including Germany, Italy and Japan to avoid telecommunication equipment from China's Huawei Technologies Co, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. One of the US' concerns, according to the report, is that the use of Chinese telecom equipment would pose cybersecurity risks to US military bases in these countries. Earlier in August, Australia blocked Huawei from rolling out its 5G network and it was reported Washington had weighed in on Canberra's decision-making.

High-tech export controls will bring the US no good

Beijing needs to remain calm while Washington is impulsive. It has become a trend in the US to expand technological export restrictions against China, but it's uncertain to what extent Washington will enforce the restrictions. China shouldn't be swayed from the course of opening-up because of Washington's restrictions.

Good reason for China's rising popularity in South Pacific

Australia and New Zealand are China's largest partners in the South Pacific region. There is no reason for China and the two countries to get into a duel in the region. Instead, the South Pacific should become a platform where new types of international relations are forged and tested.

It's not a bad thing if the South Pacific becomes a place where China, Australia and the US seek ways to reduce their strategic doubts about one another. Most importantly, China reaches out to the South Pacific with kindness in pursuit of common interests. Facts speaker louder than speculation.

China meets an unequal detractor in US

The Chinese public has the enthusiasm and creativity in executing public diplomacy. They can, and will, find their own way of fighting against foreign provocation. Chinese government shouldn't always be the target and Western countries should also be confronted with China's strong non-governmental voices.

Fairer competition to further advance reform and opening-up

Once fairer competition among SOEs, private and foreign sector companies becomes one of the underlying rules of China's economic governance, it will profoundly boost the overall economy and social development of China.
