How China opened up over four decades

And now, in a period during which Trump is challenging the very notions of free trade and globalization, China is guaranteeing their continuity. Speaking in Johannesburg, Xi talked about a choice “between opening-up and a close-door policy.” He then called upon BRICS “to build an open economy” and achieve mutual benefits, shared prosperity and sustainable development. Clearly, he would hardly be confident to urge others to do it, if his own country did not set the right paradigm.

Discussing changes in the international order

The Chinese are increasingly aware of their country's emergence and their growing international responsibilities. They need to learn and raise awareness by improving their capability to communicate with the outside world.

Sino-African relations symbiotic: former envoy

Despite the overall stability in Africa, China and Africa have massive room for stepped-up security cooperation since some African countries are still haunted by security threats like terror attacks and regional insurgencies.

In particular, cultural and people-to-people exchanges need to be further strengthened.
