China's gun-control success a lesson for US

In recent years, the Chinese government took further steps to adjust and tighten its regulations on gun ownership in accordance with evolving national conditions. Although the moves are based on China's conditions, the Chinese general road map for strict gun control is worth mulling over for the US, Brazil or any other country with similar headaches. China has developed its proper way, and so can the US.

China needs to revise, improve law for children's sake

Chinese children are the country's future. And the Law on the Protection of Minors should play the role of “the catcher in the rye” – standing on the edge and catch every kid before they go over the cliff. All Chinese children should be able to play in the big field of rye safely and legally, where a promising future awaits them.

Arms race with US does not fit China's development goals

China has no intention of building barriers for a tech cold war. Beijing is willing to be involved in technological competition with the US as long as it is fair and equal. In the same light, China does not fear any military threat from the US, but will not let itself get caught in an arms race by US provocations, as this does not fit China's development goals.

China will not pick sides in India-Pakistan disputes

If Europe continues to indulge US follies, nobody benefits

China's engagement with the world over the past decades has met with twists and turns. Even Chinese private companies like Huawei are experiencing unprecedented unfair treatment. But China will continue pushing forward cooperation based on openness and mutual benefit. Europe will gain more from its interactions with China and find its due place in the 21st century.

US should stay out of China-Philippine relations

China proud to promote education for ethnic minorities

In the eyes of some Western media, it would be great that Chinese ethnic minority people remain uneducated as the more these people learn, the more clearly they can tell how the West is trying to manipulate their minds.

US, Silicon Valley unwise to bite the hand that feeds

China needs to stick to opening-up and integrating more with the world and cultivating its own talent pool. When its business environment gets better and an international innovation and technology hub is created to spur investment and power growth, more foreign talent and overseas Chinese will be attracted to this land of vast opportunities.

World should open its eyes wider to US selfishness

The US hasn't provided any massive aid to other countries in recent years and has refused to fulfill international obligations. Smaller countries would turn out to be naive if they blindly believe Washington's hollow promises.

Western mind-set misconceives China as authoritarian

In the eyes of those narrow-minded US elites, a country's model is either absolute democracy or tyranny. There seems to be no other choice. But instead of following Western countries' steps, China has found its own development path.

Scholarly article documents Western stereotyping of China

Looking at China through a Western lens and finding fault with China, a country so fast-evolving, diverse and different from the West, will make both sides lose development opportunities.

China can take initiative, join partners in wildlife protection

Cross-border trade is not a one-country issue, and a single country cannot complete the task of protecting endangered animals. Each country regulates its own market as the first step and cooperation with others within the framework of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora can be the next move.

Bay area plan builds bright, global future for Hong Kong

Hong Kong can't be marginalized as inland cities can't totally replace Hong Kong. The key is how to bring Hong Kong's special status into full play. Isolating itself from the area is swimming against the dominant tide of globalization and will never help.
