FOCAC to enhance voice of emerging nations

In this emerging global landscape, African countries would gain much from looking for common ground between their own goals expressed in the Agenda 2063 and China's foreign policy strategies like the Belt and Road initiative. With its considerable scope and tangible impact, the FOCAC could just be the right place to do so.

Is Europe freeing itself from the US?

I do predict the continuation of contradictory movements within the Nord-Atlantic space and the emergence, in the next 30 years, of a post-NATO world order.

People should give up illusion that another Plaza Accord could be imposed on China: envoy

It's always been a great pleasure to come back to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), especially with my old friends and colleagues today.

Blaming women deflects attention from the actual reason behind rape

When Indian men blamed women in Western clothing for being raped, media said the country's rape culture is “thriving.” We certainly don't want a society like that.

Shared future beckons China-Africa relations

We share the belief stressed in Africa Union's Agenda 2063 that the dream of an Africa that is integrated, peaceful and prosperous is achievable. The ensuing summit will surely help shape a more enabling and empowering win-win pattern of Sino-African cooperation and an even stronger community with a shared future.

Market-driven ride-hailing business sits on the misfortune of many

But Corey Johnson, the speaker of the City Council who previously opposed a bill aiming to cap app-based cars, now admits he was wrong. And the lesson? Fairness is more important than convenience. And markets certainly cannot solve all the problems.

Five years on, BRI tastes success on several fronts

Through the Belt and Road initiative, China is trying to find a new path for national advancement without becoming hegemonic. Forming a community with a shared future for humanity is not an empty slogan. The US-launched trade war has upset many countries, but the general trend of globalization is difficult to reverse. Protectionism and unilateralism will come to a dead end. Belt and Road construction will become broader and more prospective.

Chinese volunteers help cement Africa ties

While Chinese volunteers have not changed Africa, they have been changed by Africa. Some of the young Chinese who came two or three years ago have enrolled into development studies and Africa studies; some have joined Chinese companies and are being sent back to Africa; others have decided to start their own NGOs to help African women groups sell handicrafts back to China. And I have reasons to believe that they have become an important group for Africa and China to better understand and work with each other in the future.

China-built rail helps boost intra-African trade

As the African leaders head to Beijing for the FOCAC, let them keep in mind that they need to provide conducive environment for Chinese firms and workers to operate. These contractors require a working environment that will make them work smoothly. The recent harassment of Chinese workers over a lack of work permit and discrimination needs to be considered seriously.

Greece re-emerging from debt quagmire, but with challenges ahead

Eight years after the outbreak of the Greek sovereign debt crisis and despite the impressive economic progress made, a fundamental obstacle exists. This shows the inability of Greek politicians to inspire the society, build the right paradigm and leave a legacy of unity and vision.
