China and Russia should cooperate to gain from each other's strengths

In recent years, China's “four great new inventions” in modern times – dockless shared bicycles, high-speed rail, Alipay and E-commerce – have been a hot topic around the world and Russia should learn from China's experience, like high-speed railway. Russian railway is not good enough and needs improvement. We can work together with China on railway projects.

Germany's skepticism of China unfounded

Whenever Chinese enterprises, especially those in the hi-tech sector, invest in Germany, the latter becomes suspicious. They have too many worries. They think the investment is intended to “steal their technologies” or that the Chinese government is playing a role of “backseat driver.” That's why it has established an EU-wide foreign investment review system with France and Italy. The system mainly targets China.

US-China ties wobble as trade war escalates

Trump's goal of reciprocity in trade and investment is reasonable. The issue is how to best achieve it. Trade conflict is more likely to grow and spin out of control with Trump's unilateral tactics.

China's presence in Africa did not marginalize Washington's interest

It is, therefore, wrong to say that China marginalized the US in Africa. The US' reduced engagement only became more noticeable as Chinese presence increased. China and the US' interests in the region are not mutually exclusive. They can work together in improving lives on the continent.

Constitution change strengthens rule of law

Another major significance of the constitutional amendment is that huge progress has been made in improving the leadership system of the Party and the State.

Constitutional changes for better governance

Italy vote results show deep disenchantment

The day after will not be easy for Italy. Mainstream political parties are losing power and populists are gaining ground. While structural reforms are important and the Italian banking sector remains problematic, inexperienced politicians will possibly have the future of the country in their hands. A complicated relationship between Rome and Brussels might start.

China's military budget needs to be viewed fairly

All facts show that China is a peaceful force. The more its military expenditure, the bigger the force to safeguard world peace and security. The rest of the world should not feel confused and doubt China's military investment.

Quad initiative unusual development in history of Asia

The European Union is not a mere declaratory grouping, but a collective institution that is achieving an unprecedented degree of common laws and regulations. Not all of its members are engaged into alliances, but stability – including in Asia, whether one terms it the Indo-Pacific or the Asia-Pacific, is a key requirement.

Ladies first: Women-only carriages split opinion

China seeks to protect international order

Whether the Chinese model fits others should be for those countries to consider. China advocates that every country make its own strategies in accordance with its own situations and needs, neither copying Western or Chinese models.

Will US accept a Chinese-American president?

American voters won't ask whether a geeky Asian is qualified to decide the future of the country. If they don't, god bless America.

The TPP-11 and the challenge for China

Rather than looking at the much-needed effort to regain the momentum of trade and investment flows across the world's biggest ocean as a zero-sum game, China should look at it as it does at much of its foreign policy – as a win-win proposition.

Germany's scepticism on Belt and Road initiative misleading and misinformed

The B&R construction strives to expand common interests, enhance dialogue and cooperation, achieve win-win results and advance global governance in a fair, balanced and reasonable direction.
