Unstable strategy haunts Canada's China policy


Earlier this month at the 2018 Fortune Global Forum held in Toronto, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Canada would continue to increase the trading relationship with China in thoughtful ways. How can the two countries deepen trade ties? How to comment on the current bilateral relations?

Reset anticipated for China-Australia relations

As Wang said, China and Australia are complementary economies and have more in common than differences. In today's fast-changing world where multilateralism and free trade are being challenged, China and Australia need to emphasize cooperation over conflict and join hands against those upending the international order. In this sense, a reset for the relationship is highly anticipated, even expected.

US trade war has no international support

As long as China keeps upholding its opening-up, foreign enterprises, including many US ones, will continue participating in the development of the China market. China should continue cooperating with the Western world and the US on climate change, anti-terrorism, nuclear nonproliferation, global poverty and stabilizing the financial situation. As long as China keeps its development momentum, the US is doomed to lose the trade war.

China promotes shared future in the Pacific

Under a free trade framework with China, Australia is continuing its development and economic success, with a GDP growth of 3.4 percent. China regards all humanity as a community with a common future, which Australia and the Pacific island nations are welcome to share.

With UN speech, US president does further damage to image

Whether it is an EU-Japan trade pact, Japan moving forward with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership after the US dropped out, the EU setting its own tech rules, or new Sino-Russian economic and military cooperation, these are signs of the world moving on without the US. If these trends continue, the US will forfeit its global leadership role in this polycentric world, which will become less stable in the absence of US economic and strategic balancing.

China-Japan-SK FTA key to 'Asia for Asians'

Strategic changes often come from transcendence, and transcendence requires courage, more wisdom and keen insight. If the three countries can seize the opportunities and promote negotiations, Asia will find a way out of the post-war labyrinth and achieve the goal of “Asia for Asians.”

Sovereignty, equality should go hand in hand, if Trump really means it

There are positive aspects as Trump emphasized the idea of national sovereignty in his UN speech. Meanwhile, it is common sense that sovereignty will only play a positive role if it is pre-conditioned on equality, the basic principle everyone abides by.

China must oppose US protectionism, hegemony

The problems related to international trade cannot be addressed simply by hegemonic maneuvers. A wiser approach for the US would be to use the multilateral mechanisms of the international order to resolve its trade grievances with its partners. China has to shoulder greater responsibilities to hold fast to multilateralism and oppose protectionism in this protracted trade battle.

Arms sale to Taiwan a costly US error

As long as the Chinese mainland keeps growing stronger, Washington will find it harder to play the Taiwan card and Taiwan will be unable to bear a real crisis in the Taiwan Straits.

One common thing I learned from the experiences of living in these two countries is that the best way to understand culture and society is people-to-people exchange.

Beijing's involvement in Myanmar peace does not amount to interference

Obviously, this is the biggest challenge for the dream of peace proposed in the Panglong Peace Conference, and to overcome this challenge, the Myanmar government, military and ethnic armed groups need more political wisdom and patience.

China, India should cooperate in Maldives

Beijing has come up with a constructive “two-plus-one” mechanism – China and India plus another South Asian country – as a demonstration of sincerity. The mechanism can not only enhance mutual trust between China and India, but prevent other South Asian countries from being caught in between. This aims to harmonize relations between countries and serves the interest of all relevant parties, and is worth a careful consideration by New Delhi. Perhaps the two powers can have a try in the Maldives first.
