How CPEC hurdles can be overcome

In order to ensure the safety of Chinese workers in Pakistan and the construction of CPEC, the Pakistani government has set up a special security force, but this does not fundamentally change the current security threat faced by the CPEC and the Chinese in Pakistan. Confronting the challenges, both countries need to work together. Otherwise, not only will the construction of CPEC be unsustainable, but also the original achievements will be wiped out.

Doping scandals show field of sports is not free from scoring political points

The ban on Russia and the unfair treatment of Sun indicate that even China and Russia are powerful international forces, they are still in the disadvantageous position in terms of global public opinion. It is unrealistic to put faith in Western countries to change their deep-rooted discriminatory mind-set. Non-Western countries will have to join forces to be heard.

Race casts shadow on entertaining show

While I was watching Capri's stunts, my churning mind was calming down. I decided to not alert my niece about the unfairness of society. She will certainly have to face it in the future. But I am also certain that she is growing up in a whole new world.

West silent on Xinjiang's 'inconvenient truth'

Besides, Chinese media should take the initiative to post reliable information about hot-spot issues, such as the education and vocational training center in Xinjiang. More detailed planning can be made to increase the effectiveness of news diffusion. As long as Xinjiang develops toward prosperity, and Chinese media's publicity strategy improves, the truth will come to the light eventually. More people will recognize Western media's selective deafness strategy and break away from its lie of objectivity and freedom of the press.

How will Europe respond to China's rise?

Asia is no less challenged by globalization than Europe. The development of Asia is a process of constantly breaking the rules and orders designed by colonists. Meanwhile, it also faces the challenge of how to establish new rule and orders. Breaking and establishing the rules are inseparably interconnected while the shaping of new rules means Asia is making more and more contributions to global peace and development.

Moving videos of village life charm audiences

Can Li represent cultural export? It is meaningless to conceptualize her. Technologies and globalization have made what people pursue almost the same, regardless of where they come from. Yet Li uses the footage to remind people of this Shoshin – a plain and simple life. She tries to tell people – please do not go further and further away from the essence of life.

Move to multipolarity driving US-China rift

I don't think a new cold war is coming. I think there are a lot of things about the Cold War that are very different from the situation between the US and China today. Frankly, the current atmosphere and environment of globalization are two situations different from the Cold War period.

Listening to the call to save capitalism

It is over 30 years after the Soviet Union collapsed. The globalization of capital has both economic and conceptual significance. Few from the Western world have taken a serious view and consider the proposition beyond capitalism. In this regard, the new round of realistic critique on capitalism by Western elites not only provides an opportunity to us to better understand the profound changes in the current international situation, but also serves as a conscious reminder to strengthen our own system.

Rubio should know US subsidizes its own firms

If one country thinks another's industrial policy is unfair, the global appellate body can be approached for settlement. Yet it is far beyond ignorant to act like Rubio who has turned a blind eye to US industrial policy and calls the country a victim.
