Governance woes behind US trade war


If Trump can make more efforts at boosting the real economy instead of waging a trade war, he may get closer to “Make America Great Again.”

Did style differences cause China-US rift?

This summit can and should become a major milestone on the way to form a comprehensive backbone for the community of a shared future for mankind.

Exemplary punishment must for makers of faulty drugs

The scandal is indeed bad news for China's drug safety record. But it's fortunate that the defective vaccine has been detected before being released to the market and apparently there have been no reports of people being harmed after receiving other vaccines produced by Changsheng.

US intensifies military presence in Indo-Pacific

The US will inevitably strengthen its military presence in the Indo-Pacific region in the future.

Strategist Robert Kagan, with a Republican background, described the US under Trump as a “rogue superwpower.” The Economist magazine accused the Trump government of “undermining the rules-based international order.” What Courtney should do is not groundlessly blame China, but prevent “America First” becoming “Military First.”
