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?

Don't turn South Asian countries into geopolitical tool

China does not see elections in South Asian countries as a win-or-lose game with India. But it does not want to see India, along with the US, view the region as their sphere of influence and woo regional countries to counter China. They may not be able to thwart China's rise in the region, but they can put regional peace and development at risk.

China-Vatican relations look up after deal

President Xi Jinping and Pope Francis share a joint privilege while in their positions. They lead billions of people. Pope Francis is the spiritual leader of approximately 1.2 billion Catholics.

It outlines what influential leaders like them can achieve by coming together.

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.

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.
