  • China offers certainty during uncertain times

    US sociologist Immanuel Wallerstein wrote in his 1999 book The End of the World as We Know It, what we know in the 21st century should be more open than what we knew during the 20th century. If this logic works, the whole world, especially the West, should evaluate whether or not China, which has developed in high quality, poses opportunities or challenges over the next five to 15 years? Should the world embrace or reject China? Should the world cooperate with or give up cooperating with China? This will test the West's strategic wisdom toward China.

  • China keeps head high facing unprecedented challenges in its global rise

    China will not copy the old path of other countries whose rise rested on war, conflict and colonization. Similarly, it will not embark on an evil path of establishing an unequal financial, trade and economic system to bully other countries. Chinese diplomacy advocates peace, cooperation and win-win solutions.

  • China's 2021 movie hits turning heads with awe

    In the third decade of the 21st century, in addition to the 1.4 billion people market, more Chinese movies are expected to enter the top 100, top 50 and even top 10 of the world's highest grossing films. More importantly, Chinese movies will break US monopoly, and even create the highest box office in the world.

  • Can China and US coexist and escape Douglas Paal's forecasted dilemma?

    Neither China nor the US can contain one another's self-evolution. There is no way for the US to curb China's development. China should also pay attention to US anxiety.

  • Discarding illusion, Chinese view US as it is

    In the past, most Chinese imagined the US to be too good; too perfect. But now the Chinese view the US the way it is: a possibly vicious, pretentious, and sometimes friendly adversary.

  • Clash of two Americas becomes more evident

    The majority of Chinese people now have comprehensive knowledge of the US. They believe this country will continue to be the most powerful country in the long term. Meanwhile, they think the US will no longer deserve much respect as it once enjoyed.

  • Overloaded West faces crisis of democracy

    Any country that is moving forward should find a balance between order and freedom, between power and responsibility, and between individual and collective interests. In a major crisis, the libra zodiac symbol of balanced weights needs to tilt toward one side. A properly chosen program should give way to effectiveness. Also, freedom should give way to lives. And arguments should give way to cooperation.

    China's new development pattern has been established. Chinese people in the new era should catch up with the trends and go forward boldly.

  • Many hard lessons ahead in great green economy gambit

    Many countries have attached importance to clean development while striving to achieve carbon neutral goals. The goal of this green and low-carbon economy war is not to destroy a country or group. Instead, it aims to save humankind itself.

  • US: qualitative changes, dysfunctional systems

    Today, we need some Chinese intellectuals to dig into American society and achieve a similar monumental work on the US in the new era. This is something worth looking forward to. In the era of great changes, intellectuals can contribute a lot.

  • Era of fresh wealth follows US election

    I have always believed that the future competition between China and the US is not about setting up a new cold war or trying to win, but about who is more capable to create a better society and help build a better future for the whole world.

  • Why China takes humble rejuvenation road

    We need to look at the current challenges and opportunities with a mentality of battling in a protracted war. We must be more mature, not pleased by gains. Meanwhile, Chinese people ought not to be saddened by personal losses. This is a time to be down-to-earth, modest and prudent, in order to finally achieve the dream of national rejuvenation.

  • China's eco-efforts bear healthy social fruits in new environmental era

    China is changing every day, so new perspectives must regularly be updated when observing it.

  • Is US a 'financial zombie' going bankrupt?

    It is not certain whether the US is bound to go bankrupt. But it can at least be said that the rapid fall of the US into the abyss of "financial zombification" under the COVID-19 pandemic is well underway.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/10/12 17:32:03
  • New worldview opportunities for China

    Chinese are gradually forming a more complete global view. More importantly, China is being fully integrated with the world (not just with the West) as a whole psychologically. China and the world are mutually recognizing, adapting and accepting each other on a global, not just regional, level.

  • Tech agreement shows China-US entanglement no longer easy

    In my opinion, in the next decade or more, the frictions between China and the US will be normalized. The game is most likely to be an entanglement rather than a one-sided battle or a violent confrontation.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/9/21 17:13:40
  • Story of China's comeback invigorating

    Western media and observers tend to analyze a static China through microscopes. But when they realize China's cataclysmic changes over a long period, they are shocked by the enormity of the country and thus feel threatened. Such biases expose the intellectual inertia and ideological shackles of many Westerners.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/9/14 17:31:34
  • Media, think tanks must stick to truth, rather than ideology, about COVID-19

    Unfortunately, Washington refuses to listen. American society has been deeply influenced by the Trump administration, while US diplomacy and soft power have been destroyed by “the worst secretary of state in history” Mike Pompeo. If there is a new cold war or even a hot war between China and the US, it will be a greater disaster for humanity. Think tanks and the media all over the world need to find ways to promote China-US cooperation, rather than provoke the struggle between the two countries.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/9/11 18:13:40
  • West needs to change its China narrative

    For every foreign friend, it is easy to perceive the charm of China from the logical pattern of "development - contradiction - correction - redevelopment." It can therefore be seen that the outdated narrative about China from Western media and politicians may need a revolutionary change.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/9/7 18:08:28
  • Chinese view of Japanese PM shows seismic East Asia change

    China is not worried about whether Abe's successor will change China-Japan relations. As long as China continues developing, no matter who succeeds Abe, the general trend of a gradual warming of China-Japan relations should remain stable.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/8/31 15:49:46
  • Multipolar history is a lesson for rising China

    China has reached the "closest moment to the greatest rejuvenation of the Chinese nation." It is necessary for China to learn from the successful experience of the established great powers, regional powers, and emerging economies while understanding their current conditions.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/8/24 17:30:28
  • US-China hot war hype scary hot air

    Many Chinese people still feel anxious about US' suppression of a rising China. On the one hand, they have been mulling how to take countermeasures which will maintain the general framework of China-US relations. On the other hand, they also want to prevent the US government from playing the China card too hysterically. Hyping the possibility of a hot war hurts domestic investment, economic reforms, public's mentality and social stability of the two countries.

  • Why China recalls 'protracted war' history

    In the current fierce international competition, a country will fall behind if it doesn't strive to develop. It will be a test of the sustainability of China's development and the CPC's leadership. This is why the decision-makers have recalled the "protracted war" history.

  • China confident 'de-dollarization' is fast underway amid tense times

    In recent years, many G20 members, such as China, France, Germany, and Russia, have reduced their utilization of the US dollars in trade deals.

  • China instills certainty into a chaotic world

    That being said, to prevent the fall of China-US relations is to prevent the development of the world from further deteriorating.

    Indeed, humanity has reached an unprecedented moment of crisis. We have to collaborate and unite to avoid entering a dark age.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/6/29 18:18:45
  • West should seek fair stories and modernize its minds about China

    The Chinese have the final say of what kind of a country China is. Western media might well be reminded that they should, and need as well, to report on China's changes with a more inclusive and open manner. Indeed, they might find inspiration and fresh understandings of China if they travel to Beijing's outskirts, to such suburban districts as Huairou, Miyun, or Yanqing.

  • How to measure Trump's impact from Yiwu

    The US used to be a great country and the Americans are kind and innocent. But under the leadership of current administration, does the US still have the chance to be great again?

    By Wang Wen | 2020/6/1 20:02:43
  • US launches Scold War, not Cold War

    History shouldn't be written based on US politicians' lies. China has been left with no other options but to fight back. Since April, almost all Chinese media outlets fired a battle against the US government, especially against Pompeo, the true culprit of the decline of China-US ties. The scold war, a contest of truth and historical morality, is raging on both sides of the Pacific Ocean.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/5/24 21:53:40
  • Never underestimate awakening of Chinese people

    After the 2008 financial crisis, Chinese people fully reflected on Western countries' economic, financial and political model under neoliberalism. They confidently found China's own advantages. The Washington Consensus went bankrupt in China, and the Chinese approach was often quoted by the world.

  • Wake up world: Chinese youth wave coming

    Each generation of young people has their distinctive characteristics defined by the times. The ongoing changes in the national strengths of both China and other countries are influencing psychological shifts among the post-1990s and post-2000s generations in China.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/5/11 19:48:40
  • Trump team is driving US to 'failed state' status

    It's unthinkable that US media outlets would call their own country a “failed state.” The term was once used to describe US adversaries such as Iran and Iraq. The US think tank Fund for Peace started its annual report called Failed States Index in 2005. It has been renamed the Fragile States Index and is produced jointly with Foreign Policy magazine. It didn't take long for the US to be included in the index.

  • Read the past, know the future

    Will the year 2020 be a watershed in economic cycles like the 2008 financial crisis? A watershed like the great power structure change after the end of the Cold War in 1991? A watershed like the one in world order at the end of WWII in 1945? Or even a watershed for civilizations brought by Ferdinand Magellan's voyage in 1519?

    By Wang Wen | 2020/4/20 19:08:40
  • Post-pandemic may be more enlightened era

    Focusing only on one's national borders is limited. It's also shortsighted to play the blame game during a global pandemic. Infectious diseases are no longer a simple medical problem, nor a problem of one country. Instead, it is a problem of global ideology. When facing the spread of the Black Death, humans rethought their relations with the world, which lead to the Renaissance and produced modern civilization.

  • It's the US, stupid!

    We need to start by changing the deep-rooted mind-set of existing governance paradigms and begin showing global solidarity.

  • COVID-19 blunders signal end of 'American Century'

    For most people it's unfathomable that the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic is the first global event that hasn't been led by the US since 1941. In 1941, the US was a leader in the worldwide antifascist war. During this current global fight against an invisible enemy, the US is hardly able to protect itself. The US should have been much better prepared for the outbreak considering the coronavirus came to its shores after it had rampaged through China, Japan, South Korea, Iran, Italy, France, Germany and Britain.

  • Trump govt's three big lies hurt Americans

    China's image will not be dented by lies which will however ultimately hurt Americans. There are three main “China lies” promoted by the Trump administration.

  • US should save us from 'globalization shock'

    I look forward to a better world and better China-US relations after the global shock season of 2020 finally comes to an end.

  • The US owes an apology to the world

    The US founding fathers hoped the country would be humble, pursue freedom, call for unity, and contribute to the well-being of every American and all of humanity. But how are you conducting yourselves now? US politicians today should apologize to the great American founders!

    Let's toss narrow-minded hurtful rhetoric in the garbage heap of history. If there is an upside to the novel coronavirus epidemic, it could be to inspire and create new opportunities for cooperation between China and the US.

  • Five battles that China must win in 2020

    Describing China's state of overcoming tough challenges in 2020 with words such as "battle" and "war" does not indicate the Chinese people are aggressive. It expresses their awareness of the difficulties and their determination to settle them.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/2/17 20:46:30
  • History will note China's strength, West's arrogance

    Several years later, historians may portray the year 2020 as: "The Chinese underwent a tough time over the year. They had to battle the novel coronavirus epidemic at home, and deal with insulting attacks from some foreigners. Yet they are strong and they stay strong. This great country has weathered the year of 2020, like any year over its history of 5,000 years, and they have achieved their goal of making their lives better."

    By Wang Wen | 2020/2/10 17:53:40
  • Chinese people have most positive outlook in a negative world

    The rise of nations is a never-ending endurance race. From this perspective, negative impacts, such as the coronavirus outbreak, are likely to occur frequently in China's future development. But as long as they are handled properly, there is nothing to fear.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/2/3 18:13:40
  • How can the US sell more goods to China?

    I want to tell Chinese people to have confidence in the country's opening-up. The more open our market, the more China will develop and the stronger Chinese companies will become. When China embraces opening-up in an all-round way, both the country and the world will prosper.

  • Eastern mind-set foretells global future

    Human beings are still on the way to realizing the prosperity of resources. It is thus too early to fully reach the prosperity of thoughts. The rise of oriental mind-set is only the first step on the way.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/1/13 19:43:41
  • Global efforts needed to restrict US adventurism

    Judging by the world reaction to the killing of Soleimani, I believe that the current US administration's global actions should be condemned and constrained. Iranians need to make more efforts, so do the people of the world. In an attempt to maintain the US image and the true spirit of freedom and democracy, Americans should restrict the unbridled moves of their president.

    By Wang Wen | 2020/1/6 18:58:41
  • Small cities offer better insight into China

    I appreciate the international students who accompanied me. It is hoped that more of such opportunities to research small Chinese cities will be created for them by more universities. Chinese citizens should also look around in these small cities and learn more about the country, so that they can understand its difficulty of development and greatness.

  • How China can gain from trade headwinds

    China and the US signed a phase one agreement related to the trade war on Friday. It has been widely discussed who the winner is. According to the results of my research, I believe that China has not lost, nor has the US won.

  • Russia, China need strategic reassurance

    China cannot guide Russia, nor does it need to. To China, Russia has many aspects to learn from, but Russia should also open its arms to its neighbor more widely.

  • What's behind the fear to criticize the US?

    If there are no moves from the international community to set limits on the US unilateralism, I am afraid all efforts to defend multilateralism will be in vain.

    By Wang Wen | 2019/12/2 20:18:41
  • China not in a position to lead the world

    China is trying to present some Chinese-style experiences to the rest of the world. It has not forced other countries by any means. That being said, there is no need to encourage China to become the new international leader. It is not what China wants. If possible, other countries are welcome to study more about China's development and learn from some of China's effective governance.

    By Wang Wen | 2019/11/25 21:58:41
  • Witnessing progress through wheels of time

  • Hong Kong should be wary of US interference

    The third decade of the 21st century is about to begin. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area should be the fourth opportunity for Hong Kong. If this is true, Hong Kong will surely continue to occupy an important international position in the future.

  • Africa has a lot that China can learn from

    Chinese people need to completely change their view of Africa. They should show more appreciation to Africa for the help the continent has given to China in the past and the fact that it is still better than China in some aspects, so as to better tap the great potential for cooperation in the future.

  • China's monetary sovereignty stands strong

    For Chinese people, the US dollar's exorbitant privilege is a bullying act in the finance sector. Fortunately, China's yuan is rising unhindered, and the nation has dealt a blow to the US dollar's exorbitant privilege in defending monetary sovereignty. However, this is still a difficult path and China needs to walk in a more steady fashion.

  • Clout eroded as US shirks intl duties

    I think it's necessary to include something Liu once said that also applies here, “The world needs a new America. It needs an America that is free of prejudice and intolerance. It needs an America that understands respect, that matches words with deeds, that understands the principles of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and faithfulness. The world would be lucky if the new America could become such a country.”

    The US recently acted unilaterally to impose tariffs on Chinese exports. The international community generally believes that imposing tariffs will not solve problems and will have a negative impact on the world economy.

  • Indonesia's potential can be harnessed with China help

    My arrival in Jakarta on November 26 was not smooth with two aborted landings and a diversion to Surabuya 600 kilometers away due to heavy rain. When the weather improved, I was flown back to the Indonesian capital. A friend joked, "You earned. One ticket, three flights." So there can be several ways of looking at something. The same is true of relations between China and Indonesia.

  • Ten misunderstandings about Africa

    For a long time, Sino-African cooperation has been supposed to be unpromising. Now, through reform and opening-up and sustained efforts of the people, China has reduced 70 percent of global poverty and established an all-weather partnership with Africa. Since the Belt and Road initiative was proposed in 2013, China's investment in Africa has seen a continuous rise, which has changed the pattern of economic cooperation between China and the continent. Such cooperation pattern will lead the long-term development of the world.

  • China's manufacturing needs to fight a protracted war

    Starting at the end of last year, the difficulty of achieving the “Made in China 2025” initiative increased, with pressure from the US trade provocation and the domestic transformation and upgrading upgraded. To get to 2025, eight years lie ahead. In that time, China's manufacturing sector faces a protracted war that's similar to the Anti-Japanese War (1937-45) it fought.

  • A common rise: future of Sino-Russian relations

    In sum, the common rise of China and Russia is the rejuvenation of peace and cooperation. Reform is an important guarantor of peace and promoter of cooperation. Both countries are committed to promoting shared rejuvenation, a theme that accords with the national development priorities of many countries and coheres with their long-term interests.

  • Co-evolution: Future of China-US cooperation

    It is regrettable the US media and certain of its politicians persist in interpreting China as a zero-sum game and power politics. The year 2018 marks the 40th anniversary of China's reform and opening-up as well as the establishment of diplomatic relations. Four decades of Sino-American evolutionary history has proven China a global force for the maintenance of peace with whom cooperation is worthwhile.

  • China should shrug off Indian scholar's slander against B&R

    At the end of 2017, Brahma Chellaney, an analyst at the New Delhi-based Centre for Policy Research, posted an article titled China's Creditor Imperialism. The article distorted China's image by claiming that it was aiming to shackle its partners with debt, forcing them to hand over domestic resources to China in order to pay it back. It also accused the Belt and Road (B&R) initiative of being a plan to achieve China's imperial ambition.

  • Chinese learning to act like global citizens

    The Belt and Road initiative has enhanced China's global influence and in turn reshaped the image of China and Chinese society. This presents a new mission. Every Chinese resident should learn to eye the globe and keep up with national development, and behave like the citizen of a global power.

  • Belt and road initiative making steady progress, concerns about risks overstated

    Over the past two years, my colleagues and I have been to nearly 20 countries and regions, and also dozens of cities in China, conducting surveys on China's “One Belt, One Road” initiative.

  • Business elite will lead Washington onto right path with Beijing

    Going a bit further, the US decision-making level lacks responsible political elite who dare to tactfully deal with the public opinion.

  • China seeks partnerships with world

    As far as the US is concerned, China is a major power that is good at playing games with the super power.

  • Relations with Washington have moved beyond Cold War shadow

    There are indeed some concerns that conflict and even war between the two countries cannot be completely ruled out. However, policymakers from both sides have fully realized the risks and disasters this would bring.

  • Common sense needed to talk down to China

    Whenever China's economic indicators have declined over the past 20 years, people begin bad-mouthing China. There have been widespread claims that China's economy has stalled and its growth has peaked. The new round of gloom-mongering over China's economic prospects, along with weak external demand, adjustment of resource consumption structure and a sluggish property market, has aggravated concerns during the economic restructuring.

  • Western scholars lead int'l China debate

    Chinese didn't participate strongly in the discourse about China's changes. This hasn't been caused by any exclusion from the West, but by China giving up the initiative.

  • Sino-US relationship solid amid stormy seas

    Admiral Samuel Locklear (Locklear), head of the US Pacific Command, recently visited Beijing for talks with his counterparts in China's PLA.

  • Dignity is Iran's greatest weapon against US

    Iranians' emphasis on “dignity” was particularly impressive during the four-hour rally which marked the Revolution Day. The roaring slogans of “Down with USA” and “Down with Israel” filled my ears.

  • Openness, safety find home in Iran crowds

    I had never thought I could be so close to Iranian Presi¬dent Mahmound Ahma¬dinejad.  The President, who is de¬picted by some Western media as the most dangerous man in the world, was not heavily guarded. Nor, from what I saw during my visit to Iran, does he forcibly control the Iranian people.

  • Media interests distort view of a varied China

    I was extremely excited about my first visit to Austria, a country I've always associated with history, music, and romance. A considerable number of Chinese hold the same positive opinion of the nation and of the rest of Europe.
