China shows determination in cracking down on ivory smuggling

In terms of maintaining ecological security, global consensus has become increasingly strong. The public has gradually formed a collective consciousness in boycotting ivory products. The legal and moral risks of poaching and smuggling are growing, which will be unbearable in the future. It is comforting that China's efforts have created a stronger fence around endangered species such as elephants.

China's sharp focus on Africa dazzles many

Africa has a lot to offer in access to natural resources, trade and investment, and even migration. There are at least 10,000 Chinese-owned firms operating on the continent today. This therefore means that China's lasting effect in Africa is a foregone conclusion.

Age-old perceptions of aging need to change

Only when the public no longer puts a label with the “O” word on people in their 40s and 50s, and only when these people themselves no longer think they have passed the pinnacle of their careers, can the energy of the labor force be completely released. And only then can the aging country maintain its vitality.

Reunification will be achieved irrespective of who wins 2020 Taiwan elections

It will force us to take measures earlier. In the games that involve the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and the US, the mainland is obviously least afraid of Taiwan resorting to a face-off.

Trade gets more attention than it deserves

I think there will be some features in the agreement that probably contribute to greater (trade) balance in the relationship between the two sides. I don't know whether that's really that good or not from a free market perspective. Trade imbalances don't bother me, but that seems to be very important to President Trump. So that will be seen by him as positive. The two countries are going to create some enforcement mechanisms. There will be enforcement offices on both sides.

Much at stake for Abe in imminent US meet

For the time being, the Abe administration delays its responses to US heat on economic and trade issues, but how long can such tactics last?

West takes on China over useful mobile app

When Chinese authorities launch an app, it is taken as a propaganda tool. When China produces a Karl Marx cartoon series, it is called political propaganda. Even an English rap about the two sessions created a brouhaha in the West. If these happened in the West, would they even be noticed? Western countries should really change their way of looking at China if they want to understand it.

Repeated US slander of China shows naiveté

It is useless for Pompeo and other high-level US officials to be malicious toward China, as words don't harm. Washington needs to talk with Beijing about trade because US enterprises and consumers demand that. Although the US has a powerful army, it cannot scare off China which is also a nuclear power. Some people in the US are advocating tough stance against China. Showing muscle to China has become politically correct. If a government really leads the country into a conflict with another, the people will not forgive it. Governors in the US must keep sober.

BRI helps countries bring governance reform

BRI helps countries improve governance by advancing development. All specific projects, including durian production, road management, customs links, and cooperation in capital and technology, will bring about policy and governance changes inch by inch. It is only such steady governance reform based on development that can be the foundation of good governance.

Israel vote result hardens right-wing parties

At the same time, the possibility of conflicts with Iran, Syria as well as Lebanon has also risen sharply. In addition, due to America's bias on regional issues, Netanyahu's re-election will cast more shadow over the already volatile situation in the Middle East.

US using Taiwan question as ruse to interfere in China's internal affairs

Therefore, the US needs to exercise prudence on Taiwan and abide by the one-China principle based on the three joint communiqués between China and the US. Any US provocative move in the Taiwan Straits is detrimental to the interests of all parties. We hope to form a mutually beneficial China-US relationship, which needs efforts by both sides.

EU may take cue from US-China trade talks

China is the largest manufacturing economy, whose products have been exported to the rest of world; while it is also a huge market, attracting global companies' attention. The EU is not only an affluent economy but also a major manufacturing base in the world. China and the EU can cooperate in manufacturing as their huge markets are attractive to each other. Hence, there is huge potential for China and the EU to cooperate.

US military ties could be a trap for India

Two events in 2017, the China-India border standoff and the announcement of the largest ever Malabar series of US-India-Japan trilateral naval exercises in the Bay of Bengal, continue to serve as a reminder of the strategic trap that India could find itself in the near and distant future.

Europe mellows out after realizing BRI gains

It's expected that China and the EU will overcome difficulties under the BRI, open up new space for cooperation and development, achieve more win-win results and common prosperity and help boost global economic growth. All in all, cooperation between the two sides will show better prospects and transcend competition, especially in dealing with third parties.
