How will Europe dance with populism?

After various political forces have entered the EU political arena with various solutions, China expects to see the EU become more mature and stable in the process of “co-existence and dancing,” with a clearer direction of integration, stronger sense of responsibility toward partners and more contribution to the stability and development of the world, not the other way around.

US moves like a witch hunt for China

Trump described Russiagate as “a total political witch hunt” of which he is a victim. Currently, his administration's bigoted moves toward China in economy and trade, technology and people-to-people exchanges are exactly a “witch hunt” against China. The US government is the perpetrator, while China is the victim.

Europe's future lies in Eurasian integration

In the race of the new industrial revolution, the EU lags behind China and the US, at least in 5G communication. If the EU can't lead in technical standards, it is supposed to actively participate in Eurasian integration to build the future market. The EU has to decide.

UK political rifts to continue after May leaves

There is huge space and a possibility for China-UK cooperation, such as the joint construction of the Belt and Road Initiative, financial cooperation and so on. The quality of China's development and its speed of opening-up will prompt the UK and the EU to take the initiative to cooperate with China.

Time to implement stronger traffic safety rules

It has been eight years since the latest amendment to China's Law on Road Traffic Safety. If it is not a simple work to amend a law, at least, we hope national regulations are implemented to help protect traffic safety.

Media attraction to NY high society misguided

One would think that between the impeach-Trump-or-not argument, the increasing risks of war between the US and Iran, the intensive trade conflict between China and the US and other nerve-racking major news in the world, the media would have little time for a 28-year-old woman named Anna who is known for nothing more than being vain and deceitful. That assumption is wrong.

Dangerous for Washington to exaggerate present danger

At present, there is little indication that the American public is ready to sign up for a Manichean struggle with China. The recent chill in US-China relations could thus give way to a deep freeze that works to the detriment of the peoples of both countries.

China will emerge victorious from US tech crackdown folly

But it needs a lot of time. During this process, China cannot avoid paying a price and will have a difficult time. But Huawei still has a domestic market of more than a billion Chinese people and the market of the Third World countries. When the Trump administration cracks down on Huawei, the US also goes through hard times. The final victory will certainly be China's, but China must have adequate determination and endurance.

Stop bogus 'harmful Chinese tech' narrative

As the Chinese poem goes, “A thousand sails pass by the shipwreck, and ten thousand saplings shoot up beyond the withered tree.” Anyone who attempts to stand in the way and place a stumbling block on the road of China's scientific and technological development is doomed to fail.

US-Russia relations reset will not come easily

As the total volume of exports and imports between China and Russia exceeded $100 billion in 2018, the two sides are focusing on a $200 billion target. China is becoming increasingly important to Russia's steady development of its economy and society. Russia is very clear about who is the most important strategic partner. President Xi will visit Russia in June and attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, further advancing the progress of China-Russian pragmatic cooperation. Against the backdrop of a China-US trade war, it is not easy to reset US-Russia relations, and China's relationship with Russia will continue to grow stronger.

Now's the time for US to work with China

The issue of today is not whether China is a liberal domestic order. The issue of the day is whether China is working with the liberal international order. And I can tell you what a liberal international order is, because I was born in an era or what you call an illiberal international order in a British colony. And, as you know, when you are colonized you have no rights whatsoever.
