China's Economic Growth
Is China the Top Industrialized Country?
Some scholars have recently argued that “China has surpassed the United States and become the top industrialized country”. However, this claim is not supported by objective assessments of significant facts. By certain criteria, China has exceeded the United States in the scale of manufacturing. In terms of competitiveness, however, China is still far behind, writes Jin Bei.

China’s North Korea Conundrum
While North Korea has traditionally been a thorn in America’s side, Michael Justin Lee posits that reports Kim Jong-un has resumed the country’s nuclear development program could provide a rare opportunity to boost military-to-military relations between the United States and China, the DPRK’s long-time ally.
No Need for China to Counterattack the US
Although the US is firmly established in the region, many Pacific countries are concerned about US stability and consistency in policy. China’s recent confident actions have allowed for relations with ASEAN to grow and may have begun to act to supplant the US role. But do the two powers need to be competing or can they work in tandem?
Xi and Li Upgraded China-ASEAN Relations
In the wake of President Xi and Premier Li’s visits to Southeast Asia, China not only underscored its diplomatic commitment to the region but also elevated its partnerships with neighboring countries to more strategic ones. Zhai Kun examines in which ways the new Chinese leadership “upgraded” the China-ASEAN relations.
The World Is Counting on the U.S. and China
President Barack Obama and China's President Xi Jinping shake hands before their bilateral meeting at the G-20 Summit on Friday, Sept. 6, 2013, in St. Petersburg, Russia.
China’s Role in the Middle East: Towards More Engagement
There is nothing wrong with expecting China to contribute more to the Middle East, and hopefully China will do so, but the allegations that China has contributed little to the Middle East is far from the truth, writes Jin Liangxiang.
A Typical Case of US Politicians Going Back to Cold War Years
NASA’s ban on Chinese researchers and scientists at next month’s meeting at the Ames Research Center has caused outcry far and wide. While the backlash against NASA has came mostly from big name research institutions, like Yale University, Wu Zurong writes that US politicians stuck in a Cold War-mindset are to blame.
A New Model of Great Power Relations
Many people in my country have a misperception about the state of U.S./China relations over the last 75 years. They assume it shared much with the Cold War that characterized the relations between the United States and the Soviet Union during much of the last half of the 20th century. But China and the United States never faced each other as Cold War adversaries in the past and there is no reason that they should do so in the future, writes Stephen Hadley.
The Overlooked Partnership: China-US Cooperation Against Chemical Weapons
Both the Chinese and U.S. governments welcomed last week’s decision of the Noble Prize Committee to award the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) its annual peace prize. However, while Beijing and Washington cooperate on most chemical weapons issues, they do differ on some.
The Emerging US-EU-Asia Trade Triangle
After two decades of on-and-off talks, Washington and Brussels hope to conclude their trade and investment partnership. However, it is not a marriage, but a triangle drama. Emerging Asia is the third party.
Furthering Constructive U.S.-China Relations?
In spite of the progress made at this week’s APEC and ASEAN meetings in Bali and Brunei respectively, there are still concerns that President Obama’s absence reduced U.S. influence in the region. Stephen Harner examines these developments and the potential for a “win-win” relationship between the US and China.
US Intervention in China-Turkey Military Cooperation?
The US should help NATO countries work together with countries in the East for the benefit of world peace, writes Wu Zurong. Whether to sow discord and create new divisions between the East and the West, or to increase mutual understanding and cooperation between them is a serious test.
Asia’s Emerging Community
While US efforts to enhance stability in the Asia-Pacific region are welcome, they are inadequate to offset the rising strategic and economic uncertainty facing ASEAN member countries. Fortunately, ASEAN leaders seem to recognize this, and are working to establish a full-fledged diplomatic and economic “community” by 2015.
A Sino-America Proxy War?
Debates have been spurred over the strategies of the United States’ new Air-Sea Battle (ASB) military concept that addresses the scenario of Chinese aggression. Complications such as likely nuclear escalation may keep fighting off mainland China and lead to proxy wars that will require building strong military relationships with allies that can keep Chinese and U.S. ambitions in check.
