How reform and opening-up made US uneasy


US leaders must desist from hegemony as a policy and honestly face up to the socio-economic crisis in the US and its manufacturing decline.

Tokyo's TPP invitation unattractive to London

In this sense, the UK will be more interested in signing bilateral FTAs with major economies in Asia like Japan. Despite Abe welcoming the UK into the TPP with open arms, London's attitude to joining the 11-member pact may not be optimistic.

China-US competition could be driving force for human society

While China has underestimated the recklessness of US President Donald Trump, the White House has failed to realize China's resilience against pressure. Neither of the two countries will back off easily from their conflict.

Women suffer under yoke of dual responsibility

“Why do women have to pretend to be something that they're not?” Mrs Maisel, the heroine of American TV series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel set in the 1950s, asked on stage as a stand-up comedian after she was cheated by her husband and resolved to become what she wants to be. It's still hard to answer the question today. Perhaps for a long time, women will still have to fight with work, family, tradition and public awareness. Changes are coming, but they are frustratingly slow.

Seoul's diplomatic independence key to peninsula peace

South Korea has been bold about engaging with the North recently and the US should be supportive of these efforts for the sake of regional peace. The gradual withdrawal of US troops can be coordinated with the denuclearization and reunification process of the Korean Peninsula.

S.China Sea can be more risky than trade

Experience proves that sovereignty disputes can be shelved. If each side has a different understanding of freedom of navigation, they should resort to politics and law, not show of force. If the hard-won tranquility in the South China Sea is destroyed again, the region's stability and peace will be sacrificed. The biggest victim would be the countries in the region themselves.

'Seat-robbing' on trains chronicles clash of traditional and modern social values

As a global brand, China's bullet trains are bound to create another miracle. But Chinese people also hope to make our civilization stunning. It requires that every passenger should protect the rules to make our nation rise with the help of morality and law.

What's common between Musk and Trump?

As long as such performances continue, Musk and Trump will need no psychiatrists. There are, after all, so many mentally ill people who gained the “genius” tag throughout history only because they won the game. Winning is what the world really seems to care about.

Italy shuns doubt to reach out to China

It is not a case that during the last visits, Italy confirmed the intention to cooperate with China in third countries, such as those of the African continent. In this respect, an MoU signed during the last visit is already an important outcome. Moreover, at the end of the year another MoU will be signed to fully involve Italy in BRI so that it could become China's main partner in Europe. We need to adapt to our changing world in a constructive way.

Bloomberg fake report coordinated with US trade war

Many Americans, instigated by anti-China propaganda, may be willing to buy such stories. Bloomberg hasn't apologized or stopped publishing these fake reports. This reflects how unbridled anti-China public opinion has become in the US. Bloomberg specifically targeted China's telecommunication industry, a key area targeted by the US in its trade war with China. China must take actions to correct the wrong.

India over-interpreting China-Pakistan drone deal

Combating terrorism is a priority for Pakistan, but it is also a big concern for India. While the Chinese drones help Pakistan rein in terrorism and improve its security situation in the future, they will also benefit India to some degree. Perhaps Indian people and media should see the bright side more and stop feeling they are always being targeted by others.
