Trump's dallying with Trans-Pacific Partnership driven by electoral calculations


The US under Trump can never rejoin TPP if Trump clings to profits for his own country. In this sense, his declaration is nothing but a posture. It is expected that Trump will take this as a lesson and think twice before making major trade policies in the future, or he will again regret his impulsive decisions.

Why China cannot concede in trade war

Washington has unrealistic fantasies about “balancing China-US trade.” It tries to solve US economic issues with sticks and threats rather than painstaking reforms. Simply put, it attempts to make a hard sell. The world is required to buy whatever the US produces at its convenience, and developing countries like China cannot make technological progress in the process.

Home comforts

Smaller cities chase graduates with tempting offers

Preferential policies and attractive incentives are just the first step. These cities should provide better support services and facilities. They should also foster industries, create appealing job prospects and improve the recruitment evaluation system if they want people of talent to stay.

If Taiwan becomes a chess player, it will be told 'game over'

Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen said last week that Taiwan is not just the pawn of the US, but can also be a chess player. She may have not figured out how reality works. If Taiwan becomes a chess player, it will be told “game over” by the mainland. Hopefully both Washington and Taiwan can understand the warning sent by the mainland's live-fire drills.

Scholars ponder demise of liberal world order

In Europe and the US, many scholars are attributing the demise of the international liberal order, driven by the West, to the isolationist, antiglobalist and populist policies of the new Trump administration. I believe this is incorrect. The process of restructuring of the international order is longer, deeper and structural, and it goes back to the 1990s.

India should join hands with China for regional prosperity

As a major power in South Asia, India should join hands with China for common development, which will be of particular significance for South Asia's prosperity. As neighbors connected by the same rivers and mountains, China, Nepal and India are natural friends. As Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, “Nepal stands as a natural beneficiary of cooperation and development by China and India. This is a logical desire that should be supported by both China and India.”
