China in the Asian century, Is the future truly Asian?



As China continues to develop, so does its global influence. What would the future be like for South-East Asia with a ‘risen China’?

Rising together: No, Chinese imperialism is not simply replacing US imperialism, as China emphasises win-win partnerships, says Prof Zhang. — Handout

 

China in the Asian century

PROF Zhang Weiwei is among the most respected scholars in China today. He is a leading expert on China’s “reform and opening up” policies and its status as a “civilisational state.”

As director of the China Institute at Shanghai’s elite Fudan University, he is also professor of International Relations and had served as English interpreter for China’s Paramount Leader Deng Xiaoping. In an exclusive interview earlier in the week, Prof Zhang spoke to Sunday Star about future prospects with China.

As the leading authority on China’s civilisational state, how would you define it, as distinct from a nation state?

With China, it’s a combination of the world’s longest continuous civilisation and a super-large modern state. A civilisational state is made up of hundreds of states amalgamated into one large state.

China is a modern state respecting international law like a nation state, but culturally diverse, with sovereignty and territorial integrity.

There are four features of China’s civilisational state: a super-large population of 1.4 billion people, a continent-size territory, significant culture, and a long history.

If we are returning to an East Asian tributary system, what changes can we expect in China’s policies in this region today?

The tributary system is a Western name for China’s relations in this region (in the past). China is a “civilisational” – as an adjective – state, a modern amalgamation of many (component communities).

During the Ming Dynasty, China was a world power – but as a civilizational state more than a nation state – and did not seek to colonize other countries, unlike Western powers that were nation states. Since then, China’s status and capacity as a nation state has grown significantly. Will it then become more like Western powers now?
China today is a nation state, but different from European (nation) states. It is also still a civilisational state.

The Chinese people are not just Han, although the Han majority is 92%. There are 56 ethnic groups in China, (mostly) minorities.

But China rejected the Permanent Court of Arbitration’s ruling on the South China Sea, initiated by the Philippines, which found China’s claims insupportable.

The tribunal was illegal; it had no right to make such decisions. The Permanent Court of Arbitration is not part of the United Nations.

How can countries in South-East Asia be convinced that the rise of China will not simply result in Chinese imperialism replacing US imperialism?

China emphasises win-win partnerships, such as in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). It encourages discovering, building, and benefiting together.

Countries in South-East Asia join the BRI out of their own interest. It is not something imposed by China.

Some countries have described the Second Belt and Road Summit this year as being more consultative than the first. As for the future?

The future Belt and Road Summits will be even more open and consultative.

Is the current US-China trade dispute only a symptom of much larger differences, such as a historic divide in the reshaping of a new global order?

It is more than about trade. With the United States especially, it is zero-sum, but for China it is win-win.

The Chinese economy is larger than the US economy, or soon will be. (In PPP or purchasing power parity terms, China’s economy grew larger than the US economy in 2014.)

The United States is trying to decouple its economy from China’s. How can China ensure that it would not only withstand these efforts but also triumph?

The attempt to decouple the two economies will fail. About 85% of US companies that are already in China want to stay.

Looking at the trade structure, most Chinese exports to the US are irreplaceable. No other place in the world gives a better price-quality ratio in manufactured goods.

So the US cannot win in this decoupling because there are no alternatives (as desirable producing countries). China has the world’s largest chain or network, or factory clusters, for all kinds of goods.

How likely do you see a hot war – more than a trade war or a cold war – breaking out between a rising China and what is perceived to be a declining United States?

The US knows that it won’t win (a hot war). No two nuclear-armed countries will go to war. It would be very messy.

So far no two nuclear-armed countries have fought. There may be a small likelihood of direct confrontation, but not a war situation.

No commercial shipping has been interrupted by China. So the US need not worry.

Can Asean, or an Asean country like Malaysia, help to bring the United States and China closer together as partners rather than as rivals?

Possibly. Malaysia perhaps can help, as it is friendly to both China and the US.

As China continues in its rise, what steps is it taking to provide for more cooperative and consultative relations in this region?

Trade between China and Asean countries, for example, has grown, and has now exceeded China-US trade.

Generally, China’s relations with Asean countries are quite promising, with Free Trade Area relationships as well.

Is the future truly Asian?

The Region, while growing fast, faces issues such as youth joblessness, climate change and income gaps

THIS is a question that is at the heart of the tensions across the Pacific.

To Parag Khanna, author of The Future Is Asian (2019), the answer is almost self-evident.

However, if you read his book carefully, you will find that he thinks global power will be shared between Asian and Western civilisations

For the West, the rise of Asia has been frighteningly fast, because as late as 1960, most of Asia was poor, agricultural and rural, with an average income per capita of less than US$1,000 in 2010 prices.

But 50 years on, Asia has become more urban and industrialised, and is becoming a challenge to the West in terms of trade, income and innovation.

Global management consulting firm McKinsey has just published a study on “The Future is Asian” that highlights many aspects why Asia is both attractive to businessmen and yet feared as a competitor.

Conventionally, excluding the Middle East and Iran, Asia is divided into North-East Asia (China, Japan and South Korea), South-East Asia (mostly Asean), South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh) and Central Asia.

But McKinsey has identified at least four Asias that are quite complementary to each other.

First, there is Advanced Asia, comprising Australia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Singapore, each with per capita incomes exceeding US$30,000 (RM125,600), highly urbanised and rich, with a combined GDP that is 10% of global GDP.

This group provides technology, capital and markets for the rest of Asia, but it is ageing fast.

Second, China is the world’s largest trading economy, second largest in GDP after the United States, and a growing consumer powerhouse. By 2030, the Chinese consumer market will be equal to Western Europe and the United States combined.

China is also an increasing capital provider to the rest of the world.

Third, the 11 countries of Emerging Asia (Asean plus Bhutan and Nepal, excluding Singapore) have young populations, fast growth and cultural diversity.

Fourth, Frontier Asia and India – covering essentially South and Central Asia including Afghanistan – which have 1.8 billion in population, still rural but young.

Taken together, these four Asias today account for one-third of global GDP and 40% of the world’s middle class.

But what is remarkable is that while the region grew from trading with the rest of the world, intra-regional trade has grown faster, to 60% of total trade, with intra-regional foreign direct investment (FDI) at 66% of total inward FDI, and 74% of air traffic.

Much of Asian growth will come from rapid urbanisation, amid growing connectivity with each other. The top 20 cities in Asia will be mega conglomerates that are among the largest cities in the world with the fastest-growing income.

A major finding is that America First-style protectionism is helping to intensify the localisation and regionalisation of intra-regional connectivity in terms of trade, finance, knowledge and cultural networks.

Furthermore, the traditional savings surpluses in Asia basically went to London and New York and were recycled back in terms of foreign direct investment and portfolio flows.

But no longer.

Increasingly, Asian financial centres are emerging to compete to re-pump surplus capital from Advanced Asia and China to fund the growth in Emerging and Frontier Asia.

In short, intra-regional finance is following intra-regional trade.

In a multipolar world, no one wants to be completely dependent on any single player but prefers network connectivity to other cities and centres of activity and creativity.

As Khanna puts it: “The phrase ‘China-led Asia’ is thus no more acceptable to most Asians than the notion of a ‘US-led West’ is to Europeans.”

But are such rosy growth prospects in Asia predestined or ordained?

Based on the trajectory of demographic growth of half the world’s young population moving into middle income, the logical answer appears to be yes.

But there are at least three major bumps in that trajectory.

First, Asia, like the rest of the world, is highly vulnerable to global warming.

Large populations with faster growth mean more energy consumption, carbon emissions and natural resource degradation. Large chunks of Asia will be vulnerable to more water, food and energy stresses, as well as natural disasters (rising seas, forest fires, pandemics, typhoons, etc).

Second, even though more Asians have been lifted out of poverty, domestic inequality of income and wealth has increased in the last 20 years.

Part of this is caused by rural-urban disparities, and widening gaps in high-value knowledge and skills. Without adequate social safety nets, healthcare and social security, dissatisfaction over youth unemployment, access to housing, and deafness to problems by bureaucracies has erupted in protests everywhere.

Third, geopolitical rivalry has meant that there will be tensions between diverse Asia over territorial, cultural and religious differences that can rapidly escalate into conflict. The region is beginning to spend more on armaments and defence instead of focusing on alleviating poverty and addressing the common threat of climate change.

Two generational leaders from the West have approached these threats from very different angles.

Addressing the United Nations, 16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg dramatically shamed the older generation for its lack of action on climate change.

“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you, ” she said.

The young are idealistically appealing for unity in action against a common fate.

In contrast, addressing the UN Security Council, US President Donald Trump was arguing the case for patriotism as a solution to global issues. Climate change was not mentioned at all.

Since the older generation created most of the carbon emissions in the first place, no wonder the young are asking why they are inheriting all the problems that the old deny.

This then is the difference in passion between generations.

Globalisation occurred because of increasing flows of trade, finance, data and people. That is not stoppable by patriot-protected borders.

A multipolar Asia within a multipolar world means that even America First, however strong, will have to work with everyone, despite differences in worldviews.

All patriots will have to remember that it is the richness of diversity that keeps the world in balance.

Highlights: China celebrates 70th anniversary with biggest ever military parade

Square on October 1, the National Day, to mark the 70th founding anniversary of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). For the mass parade, 100,000 people and 70 sets of flower-festooned floats form 36 formations. The mass parade lasts 65 minutes. The military parade showcases China’s achievements in building its national defense and armed forces in the past 70 years and reflects the outcomes of the reform of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). #PRC70 #NationalDay2019 #70YearsThriving

Grand celebration shows peaceful intent, unity of Chinese society

A celebratory event, including a military parade, marking the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) was held on Tuesday morning at Tiananmen Square in Beijing. Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, also Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, delivered an important speech and inspected the troops of the People’s Liberation Army in the parade.

The most eye-catching part of the celebration was the military parade, including the debut of military hardware such as 16 DF-41 ICBM, which has attracted world attention. The celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC has showcased the extraordinary image of China in the new era.

China is a united and cohesive country with outstanding organizational ability. Such a spectacle, including the parade, is a super project and tests the comprehensive capabilities of the country. Strong technical support and comprehensive coordination capability are required. The one held in Beijing is a microcosm of celebrations across China.

This year is unusual. In view of the ongoing trade war that has lasted over a year and a half and continuous riots in Hong Kong, some external forces want to make China a subject of ridicule. However, Chinese society hasn’t divided but has become more united. The unprecedented, grand celebrations have brought more joy to the Chinese people. It will further boost the confidence of the people and pale the voices of some external forces.

China has become stronger, including the country’s national defense capabilities. The debut of DF-41, 16 of which participating in the military parade, indicates it has been in full service. Western analysts generally believe that DF-41 is a multiple-warhead-capable, solid-fuel and road-mobile ICBM with a range long enough to hit any target on Earth. It’s an advanced nuclear strike force. DF-41 and the JL-2 will raise China’s nuclear deterrent capabilities to a new level.

China’s national defense capabilities have been progressing in line with the country’s technological and economic strength — something expected of a major power. If one country only focuses on economy and drags its feet on defense, it will inevitably fuel external hostilities and ambitions. China should ensure a balanced development. A strong military is conducive to deterring external forces.

China cherishes peace. Grand military parade is meant to enhance military transparency, not to flex muscles or coerce. Military hardware including DF-41 haven’t been unveiled publicly until they are already in service. The restraint is rare in the world.

It is worth mentioning that all the nuclear weapons displayed by China will not be used in pre-emptive strategic strikes, or to threaten non-nuclear nations. China is the only nuclear power that declares no-first-use nuclear policy. The firm policy will be applied to all of China’s nuclear weapons.

China has firm strategic planning, which won’t be disrupted by temporary factors. Western media outlets, in analyzing 70th founding anniversary celebrations of the PRC, tend to list temporary factors as if the scale and level of this year’s military parade is designed for those factors. China traditionally celebrates founding anniversaries every 10 years. Displaying new weaponry is also a tradition.

China is marching forward steadily despite the ups and downs in 70 years. The military parade in the morning and grand gala in the evening will show China’s new image, which we believe will bring positive energy and influence to a complicated world.

BEIJING (AP) — President Xi Jinping on Wednesday inaugurated a second international airport for the Chinese capital with the world’s biggest terminal ahead of celebrations of the founding of the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Beijing Daxing International Airport is designed to handle 72 million passengers a year. Located on the capital’s south side, it was built in less than five years at a cost of 120 billion yuan ($17 billion).

The airline’s first commercial flight, a China Southern Airlines plane bound for the southern province of Guangdong, took off Wednesday afternoon, state broadcaster CCTV reported. Six more flights took off later for Shanghai and other destinations.

The main Beijing airport, located in the city’s northeast, is the world’s second-busiest after Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and is nearing capacity.

Daxing, designed by the late Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, includes a terminal billed as the world’s biggest at 1 million square meters (11 million square feet).

Despite that, its builders say travelers will need to walk no more than 600 meters (2,000 feet) to reach any boarding gate.

The vast, star-shaped airport is about 45 kilometers (30 miles) south of downtown Beijing. It has four runways, with plans for as many as three more.

Carriers including British Airways and state-owned China Southern, the country’s biggest airline by passengers, plan to move to Daxing from Beijing Capital International Airport.

The capital has a third airport, Nanyuan, for domestic flights, but the government says that will close once Daxing is in operation.

Hong Kong: Police crackdown on protest activist Joshua Wong

Farce hearing shows US hypocrisy

Radical Hong Kong oppositionists Joshua Wong Chi-fung and Denise Ho Wan-see on Tuesday were invited to testify at a US congressional hearing about the Hong Kong issues. Wong and Ho described Hong Kong as a city which has lost freedom under the suppression of the Communist Party of China. The hearing was full of biased information and lies.

The hearing itself humiliated US congressional hearing system. The US Congress invited only Hong Kong’s radical opposition figures but ignored the opinion of Hongkongers who support both the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) government’s lawful measures and the Hong Kong police’s efforts to counter riots in accordance with laws. The US Congress didn’t even pretend to make the hearing look more credible.

US senators who proposed the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 have never thought about getting comprehensive, objective and real information about Hong Kong. The hearing they held didn’t aim at verifying the situation in Hong Kong, but intended to use biased information to back their bill that hurts Hongkongers’ interests.

The SAR government has officially withdrawn the extradition bill, but the opposition has extended their demands to so-called real universal suffrage. A few rioters continued to wreck havoc in Hong Kong. In such a context, the US Congress not only sided with the opposition in Hong Kong but also offered support to the extreme rioters.

Although Hong Kong society is split in public opinion, only a minority of Hongkongers would support the passing of the act. The act requires an annual assessment of the special status of Hong Kong as a separate customs territory, which will severely threaten the stability of the city’s financial environment, and thus hurt the interests of the majority of Hongkongers. This has nothing to do with the political appeals of Hong Kong citizens.

Neither Wong nor Ho can represent the majority of Hong Kong people. Oppositionists like them collude with a handful of US senators and forge a fake public opinion of Hongkongers. Such a fraud in the US political system will only stain the US Congress rather than bring it glory.

The farce of the congressional hearing showed that the Hong Kong act proposed by the US Congress cannot reflect the reality of the Chinese city. It is a perfect match between the US current strategy against China and the interests of the extreme opposition of Hong Kong. It aims at offering a new tool to contain China.

Some Hong Kong extremists are determined to take sides with the US and will not hesitate to betray their own city’s interests.

The Hong Kong act could pass as some US political elites are promoting it, and some extreme Hong Kong opposition are collaborating from within. But the situation will not necessarily develop as the two forces wish. The future of Hong Kong is not in the hands of Washington, but in the hands of all the Chinese people, including Hongkongers.

Hong Kong’s separate customs territory status is guaranteed by the Basic Law. The US move cannot represent the entire world. The impetus of the city’s constant prosperity comes from within and from its close ties with the motherland.

The US economic crackdown has not shaken China, nor will it determine the future of Hong Kong. Anyone who misunderstands this misunderstands the era and the world.

Nothing can change the fact that Hong Kong is part of China

Trump’s Foreign Policy | Full Debate | George Galloway, Mark Leonard

Hong Kong Riots, engineered by CIA, nothing but true!


Watch the start of the above video carefully. See the tall 6+ ft Caucasian guy easily grab the Policeman from behind first. Then he goes away. The HK rioters then rush in to beat up the Policeman, grabbing his baton, etc almost grabbing his gun. All these done in seconds. These are not ordinary HK protesters but are well trained to injure the Police, cause a loss of Police morale, create chaos that makes it difficult or almost impossible for HK Gov/Police to control. Objective is to have these riots, chaos spread to other Chinese cities, and ultimately lead to collapse of the China gov.

The same process for the Soviet Union starting with the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989, that eventually led to the total collapse of the Soviet Union, destroying the USA’s only other super power competitor then.

Now that China is economically strong, advancing rapidly technologically with adequate financial resources to build up military capabilities rapidly, the stakes are even bigger for the USA to destroy China, using HK as a “beach head” in military terms, as HK has free movement of people and has no need to build up strong local surveillance of potential terrorists, rebels or foreign instigators. Not difficult for CIA/NED agents to be employed as international school teachers, sports coaches etc.

HK gov needs to rapidly build up local Police surveillance to identify and arrest these foreign agents, preempt more training of HK people, young and older ones to become rioters, that seek to physically and organisationally destroy HK day to day functioning as a city.

China’s Beijing probably is aware of the repeat of Soviet Union act II targeted at China. Hence they are tightening their monitoring and control of Muslim population as these are likely ground forces that will be trained and groomed by the CIA/NED, if not already taking place. There are credible reports that both al-Qaeda and ISIS are trained and funded by the CIA/NED to fulfill its targeted national security objectives. So utilising Muslims in China is an easy channel.

This is the real war of modern times, where regime change in many countries in recent decades were brought about without US & Allied Forces having to send in actual uniform troops…. But troops that are incognito to the naive and innocent local people that are manipulated to act unbelievably aggressively and thoughtlessly as is now evident in HK.
HK gov needs to change their belief if so, that this is just another ordinary protests as they have experienced in recent years. Its a new war!


Top confidential: US President instructs CIA to abandon Hong Kong (Translated)

Just a small policeman got a message that is absolutely super confidential: US President Trump recently issued an order to the CIA to ask for abandonment of Hong Kong.

Why did the US president issue such an order? After all, Hong Kong is very important to the United States, especially the CIA. Hong Kong is a pawn for China in the hands of the United States. It is also the home base for the CIA’s intelligence war against China.

A small centre in Hong Kong, CIA has more than 1,000 staff! This is unique for the CIA’s global layout! Therefore, we can imagine how Hong Kong is important to the United States, especially the CIA.

Bai Bangrui, a Chinese affairs adviser to the US Department of Defense, publicly admitted in the face of a reporter’s question about the riots in Hong Kong: There are indeed many US agencies who plan to promote green activities in Hong Kong (actually riots). It is the unshakable national policy of the US government to push China into chaos by encouraging colored revolution through organised green mob disobedience and unrest.

Therefore, the main reason for the riots in Hong Kong that lasted for more than two and a half months was that the US government, mainly the CIA and CIA’s substitute NED, planned, organized and directed behind the scenes. The purpose of the CIA is actually very simple. It is to achieve three goals by creating a mess in Hong Kong.

The first goal is to continue to promote the coloured revolution”through green mob disobedience and unrest” signifying that there is a large organised opposition towards China’s policies.

The second purpose is short-term, which is to gain more weight in the trade war against China by creating a messy distraction in Hong Kong.

The third purpose is to be that at anytime, they would be a continuing and growing sympathy support for the green rioters to create disobedience and this is on long term a basis to draw the negative reactions of the Chinese government when the situation turn chaotic in Hong Kong.

It should be said that before this, the first goal of the US government has been fully achieved, while the second goal is only half completed, and the third goal is still out of reach!

However, since the chaos of Hong Kong, the situation has got out of control of the US government, and the weight is about to become a burden, making the US government very anxious. They could not control the drug rioters or other crimnals who had their own agendas.

Therefore, we have seen that US President Trump is very disappointed with the results of CIA’s actions in Hong Kong. Therefore, when he faced the international media, he used the term “thugs” against Hong Kong drug elements and claimed that this was China’s internal affairs.

Therefore, we have seen that the US Secretary of Commerce is also extremely disappointed with the situation in Hong Kong today. His reply to the politician’s request for the US government to openly intervene in Hong Kong was that he said, “Do we invade Hong Kong?”

The US CIA agents who were in the front line of the Hong Kong mobs saw the atrocities of the Hong Kong drug rioters who went out of control. The agents were forced to come out from behind the scenes and head to the frontline. Many agents were exposed.

Even the identity of the head of the CIA in Hong Kong has been exposed! This is an extreme scandal and extreme failure for the CIA!

In particular, the Hong Kong drug rioters violently attacked a mainland tourist at the airport and hit the tourist into coma. The CIA agent, who was in charge of the command, was watching closely the tourists that the rioters wanted to attack. He did not succeed in stopping the atrocities. In the end, he had to go out and personally protect the mainland tourists.

Of course, this is by no means the kindness of the CIA agents. In the CIA’s plan, the first thing is if a ‘colour’ rioter dies, it will become Hong Kong’s poison. Now it’s a waste against their plan, and by no means the plan can be achieved if the victim is an innocent civilian.

If the victim is not a green rioter, it cannot be used as a Hong Kong poison, it just a waste. Otherwise, the US government can launch propaganda machines, lead international public opinion to discredit the Chinese government, put pressure on the Chinese government, impose sanctions, and then acquire weapons for trade wars against China in a short period of time. In the long run, it will win support to help promote the “color revolution” against China!

However, if the first death incident is the death of an non green victim; just civilians or journalists from Hong Kong, and if it can be seen as the work of CIA, it also can be construed that the CIA was the one behind-the-scenes of the murders. Then CIA’s reputation will go completely bankrupt worldwide.

Therefore, CIA agents will be forced to jump out to “protect” the civilians who have been violently attacked by the Hong Kong drug rioters.

Therefore, the development of the situation in Hong Kong had gone out of hand contrary to what the CIA wanted. However, for the CIA, this is not the worst!

For the CIA, the most unsatisfying situation is coming.

Hong Kong poisoning in the inhumane violence against mainland tourists, beating lynching mainland reporters, and then inverting black and white on the international network for high-density publicity, these acts angered the mainland’s audience.

So what made the US government withdrew? They didn’t want to see the worse from happening was an international public opinion from changing that what the Chinese government did not do was done by the young rioters.

This is the “814 big action of the rice circle girl”, “the emperor 817 big expedition” and “overseas students surrounded by the Hong Kong poison”!

These young Chinese people, even teenaged girls, who are mainly born after the years of 90s and 2000, are eager to stand out from the patriotic ideals and beliefs. The had gone out to the international public opinion field to speak for the country. Maintain a united national stand.

We know that these two sudden online battlefields and real live battlefields have won forvthe Chinese people an overwhelming victory. It is not only to make the overseas network full of five-star red flags, but also to let some anti-China media directly stop their comments. In international circumstances, the conspiracy and shamelessness of Hong Kong drug elements were exposed.

One thousand CIAs can’t think of it. The Hong Kong chaos they planned has inspired the young people of China to have such a strong patriotic enthusiasm and patriotic conviction!

What is the core of the “color revolution” promoted by the CIA? The core is to win the hearts and minds of other countries through rumors and smearing, and thus break through from the inside to achieve the purpose of subverting the political power of other countries.

However, the chaos in Hong Kong not only failed to win the hearts and minds of the people they thought would support them, but also indirectly drew out a very vivid patriotic thinking to the Chinese, especially the young people in China So that Chinese people, especially young people, saw the true CIA sponsored “color revolution.” “The scam behind the truth!”

It has inspired the Chinese people’s strong patriotic enthusiasm and united the Chinese people unprecedentedly! The most important thing is that the most patriotic enthusiasm is actually the Chinese young people whom the CIA have been trying very hard to brainwash, to fool. But, they know who, what or how to fight for, as the future owners of China!

The “color revolution” of the US government against China has completely gone bankrupt in essence!

Their original plan had become a gift to China! Americans, now regret it!

Although China is currently suffering from the riots in Hong Kong, it has gained such a strong patriotic enthusiasm from the Chinese, especially the young people. It is definitely far more than a loss! CIA, there is an assistance of God in China!

Therefore, US President Trump is definitely very angry and very dissatisfied with the CIA’s defeat. It is the reason why of course he ordered the CIA to stop activities in Hong Kong!

And these young people who bravely stood up to defend national honor and national security on the Internet are the most powerful guarantee for China’s rapid development and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in the future!

They are the growing young generation who are born to be strong, national, and confident Chinese!

In particular, after the reform and opening-up, China’s development has not been consumed and delayed by endless ideological debates.

If the US refuses to join the trend of globalization, so be it. The rest of the world can just cooperate and move forward toward a more unified world where countries care about sustainable development and each other’s common interests.

From ‘Made in China’ to ‘Created in China’从中国制造到中国智造

Made in China” used to be a synonym for cheap products, but all that has changed. China has made huge progress in innovation and technology. From the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer, the fastest in the world, and the 500-meter-wide radio telescope in southwest China’s Guizhou Province, to the development of lithium battery and 3D-printed blood vessels made from stem cells and renewable energy technologies, Chinese innovations are making a name for themselves.

China’s central bank speeds up digital currency drive

With internet technologies advancing and cryptocurrencies flourishing amid a broad digital transformation, individual countries are starting to issue legal tender in digital form, and the People’s Bank of China (PBC), the country’s central bank, is also accelerating its pace in this area.

As of Sunday, the PBC had applied for 74 patents involved with digital currencies to the National Intellectual Property Administration, according to a report by the Economic Information Daily on Monday.

The PBC said it will speed up the development of legal digital currency on Friday.

Wang Xin, director of the PBC Research Bureau, said in July that the authority is organizing market-oriented institutions to jointly research and develop a central bank digital currency and the program has been approved by the State Council, China’s Cabinet.

“China is beefing up efforts in digital currency innovation, a trend driven by emerging technologies that is spreading worldwide,” said Huang Zhen, a professor at the Central University of Finance and Economics.

Rather than letting cryptocurrencies challenge the position of sovereign currencies, it is wiser for countries to roll out their own digital currencies, Huang told the Global Times on Monday.

Chinese authorities ordered a ban on initial coin offerings in 2017 and stopped direct bitcoin-yuan trading as the rapidly expanding market spawned concerns over financial risks.

The PBC, one of the earliest central banks in the world to start the process of digital currency innovation, launched its program in 2014 during the tenure of former governor Zhou Xiaochuan. In 2017, the PBC established a research institution for the digital currency.

“China is among the leading countries in terms of its research into a government-backed currency,” said Huang.

Favorable conditions

The basic conditions favorable for China’s implementation of a digital currency include comprehensive and fast networks, broad digitalization in the financial sector, and advanced financial technologies – particularly blockchain, a digital, public ledger that records online transactions, according to Huang.

In recent years, Chinese internet companies have made huge achievements in the mobile payment and e-commerce sectors, helping create a digital economy of more than 30 trillion yuan ($4.36 trillion), according to media reports.

In June, US social media giant Facebook released an official white paper for its cryptocurrency project Libra, a blockchain-powered stablecoin expected to arrive in 2020.

The move stepped up the global race for digital currencies, with China’s central bank paying close attention.

The central bank is closely working with market participants on creating a central bank digital currency, PBC official Wang said.

“China’s private market players have accumulated some experience in the digital currency sector. Their participation in the government’s work will effectively help promote the project,” Cao Yin, an expert in the blockchain sector, told the Global Times on Monday.

It is likely that the sovereign digital currency will be issued within two or three years at the soonest, although the authority tends to take a prudent attitude, Cao said.

Once it is broadly implemented, the new currency will have a big impact on Alibaba’s Alipay and Tencent’s WeChat Pay, the two dominant mobile digital payment tools in China, as the PBC’s digital currency is featured by decentralization, unlike the former two.

Challenges ahead

There are still some bumps on the road to promoting the digital currency.

“For this new kind of currency, its nature actually poses challenges to existing policies in such aspects as foreign exchange control, so it takes time to balance benefits with potential risks,” said Cao.

A flexible and open mechanism is needed by the PBC to attract more talent, he added.

Digital currencies can help strengthen regulation as transaction data can be tracked and analyzed, including illegal money laundering, according to Huang. But laws and rules should be formulated in a timely fashion to protect individual information. “Safety is the biggest issue,” he added.

“Use of the digital currency to better serve the real economy also requires policy guidance,” said Huang.
