Finance trumps military power in global politics


For the audience, it was a feast of thought and dialogue which ended in laughter echoing in the room. I hope China and the US can argue while being able to laugh in the future.

Biased US perception hinders bilateral ties

Some Americans see China as a threat. Such mind-set has hindered the development of the bilateral relationship and caused substantial harm to the two sides' national interests. As Wang noted in his speech, “Is a peaceful, cooperative and open China an opportunity or a challenge to the US? Is a proactive and constructive China on the world stage a partner or an adversary for the US?”

Politics determines Trump's stance on climate change

Domestic political disputes in the US have become an important reason why the US federal government is unwilling to be active in dealing with climate change. The disputes have limited US contribution to the international society's efforts.

US political chaos will damage global confidence

If Washington continues to focus on political struggles rather than solving practical problems, if political chaos becomes normal, it may lose the attention and confidence of the world.

Taiwan should learn from island nations' snub

For the moment, it seems that the Tsai authorities have not learned any lesson from it, still sticking to “Taiwan independence” and “dollar diplomacy.” However, against the increasingly obvious comparison in strength between China and the US and between Taiwan and the mainland, there might be a day when Taiwan loses all its “diplomatic allies” if it refuses to change.

How to grow in China: Tech it from Huawei

Ren's success in China is enough to prove that China's social environment and policies can foster companies on a par with world-class ones such as Apple, Microsoft and Google. In addition, China is even able to make better use of market forces than the US.

Howdy: Though Trump pats Modi, India won't do US bidding against China

New Delhi has its guard up against Beijing. Some Indian observers see China as their biggest threat. Amid increasing US-China rivalry, India will take advantage of the situation. While leaning toward Washington, New Delhi will prudently deal with trilateral ties, making its China and American policy work in its best interest.

'Economic superpower' label doesn't fit China

The fundamental thrust of economic development is the desire of the people of all countries to lead a better life. If the West pushes to include China in the list of developed countries, this is not true at first, and certainly will not get support and response from Chinese society. It is therefore unlikely to have a lasting impact on international relations.

Balanced strategy ensures China's development

China is facing unprecedented challenges, but the country is also better positioned than ever. Today's China is more capable of handling internal and external problems and turning various factors around for progress.

Why China's politics scores above the West's

In China, high-level officials conduct extensive research in various fields every year. These investigations and the experiences they accumulate constitute the basis for major decisions, which will not be arbitrarily changed due to temporary social trends. In particular, after the reform and opening-up, China's development has not been consumed and delayed by endless ideological debates.

World can move on together without the US

If the US refuses to join the trend of globalization, so be it. The rest of the world can just cooperate and move forward toward a more unified world where countries care about sustainable development and each other's common interests.

China should remain alert to India-South Korea security cooperation

As a significant player in the US Indo-Pacific Strategy, India could garner US support by cooperating with South Korea. Beijing must be wary of the possibilities of Washington and New Delhi wooing Seoul to join the Indo-Pacific Strategy.

Pragmatic China ties in Germany's interest

German diplomatic policy toward China is not only about bilateral relations, but also plays an important role in China-EU cooperation and has global significance. With rising economic strength and political influence of China, German politicians and businesses need to seek a more pragmatic balance of interests with China, and establish a model of win-win cooperation transcending the different ideological and value norms.

Why West has begun to learn from China

We sincerely hope all countries can learn from each other's civilization, overcome ideological differences, and work together to build a community with a shared future for mankind.
