Why the US is more anxious for a trade deal than China

There is a consensus in the US to get tough on China, but opinions differ on whether the US should resort to a trade war. The longer the trade war lasts, the more the US economy will suffer.

Parties' rift shows US political system is on the decline

Some say it is because US society is divided. This is nothing more than a far-fetched excuse, because the country could have bridged the gap in society through bipartisanship by choosing optimal policies. Instead, the two major US parties are using the social rifts to promote their own party's philosophy, or worse, for personal interests.

Patience and endurance best for China amid trade war

The Trump administration will eventually fail if it insists on making the trade war a tool of US politics. This may be effective in the short term, but in the long run, it does not work in a divided US.

Some in US deserve 'racist disgrace' more than others

Some Western countries don't even know Xinjiang. Their criticism against China is only based on subjective judgments and biased reports. If China is indeed as horrible as they claim, how can the country earn the support of many Muslim countries?

Western countries should learn to adapt to Chinese standards

With China rapidly progressing in innovation and advanced technology, its capabilities of standardization have also been growing. This should be viewed in a positive light, as it could drive the standards in certain areas to a higher level.

Patriotic theme in Mulan film shouldn't be politicized

If Disney wants to appropriately tell the story, patriotism should and must be included. Patriotism is natural, and it also explains why the story has been eulogized for more than a thousand years in China.

Cooperation with Huawei benefits SE Asian countries

China and Chinese companies like Huawei have never wanted to pursue hegemony, but has only been willing to help developing countries. What Southeast Asia needs is other countries' support rather than negative efforts to create strife and divisions.

Chinese products boost freedom, human rights

In labeling Chinese technologies a tool of so-called Chinese state spying, Washington is mixing business with politics. In the end, the US is losing precious time to innovate. As former US Treasury secretary Henry Paulson said, "Innovation is one of America's defining strengths. We need to protect it, but without erecting an economic iron curtain."

China, EU should further strengthen cooperation

It is important for the EU to create an ideal external environment, strengthen cooperation with strategic partners, and obtain external support to promote the European integration process.

Hostility toward China affects Australia's development

Anti-China politicians in Australia should really listen to what Keating has said, stop the zero-sum game mentality and stop hyping up the “China threat theory.” It is cooperation rather than confrontation that will benefit a country's development.

India should stop using 'China threat' to build up its military

Indian media should be aware that India's real challenges are its laggard military technologies, severe dependence on foreign imports of weapons and incomplete industrialization and modernization, rather than the “threat” from China, a fabricated excuse.

US needs to balance voices on China to bridge society

If Trump could balance different voices over China, it's also helpful for him to bridge a divided American society.

US anti-China hawks may yet scupper trade deal

Even though there are signs of China-US trade frictions turning around, as the US political system will not fundamentally change in the short term, China must remain vigilant and prepare for a long-term trade war, in case the hawks gain the upper hand.

Flailing against the world, US may risk losing everything

The trade war marks the beginning of the US closing its door and resting complacently on its laurels. It will also be the start of the thorough collapse of US global supremacy.

Blindly following US will worsen Canada's ties with China

Accusing China of disdain for the rules-based international order cannot disguise the fact that China is not the side that caused and exacerbated the deterioration of relations between Beijing and Ottawa.

DJI's success proves China is no technology thief

The issue of IP protection should no longer be a concern. A large number of innovation-driven Chinese firms are playing a leading role in different industries with no need to steal technologies. DJI's production line in the US is perhaps the best way to respond to the suspicion, so now the US can watch closely how Chinese companies “usurp” US high technology.
