Feb 13 , 2017It is becoming increasingly clear that over the course of the next four years, the Trump Administration is going to conduct an all-out campaign to undermine the Great-Power norms that have so far enabled peace between the U.S. and China. The result is likely to be not just instability, but a journey down the road to war.

Jan 24 , 2017In the long term, institutional guarantees that offer multilateral mechanisms for cooperation, development, mutual benefit and win-win, are essential for countries develop a sustainable community with a shared future, thus laying down a solid foundation for peace and development. That should be China’s message to the world, despite challenges from Trump’s expected protectionism, the weight of US national debt and anti-globalization movements.

Jan 24 , 2017The new president plans to combine the power of his country and his personal unpredictability to produce fear and anxiety, which he believes will lead to U.S. benefits and gains. This tactic could win in some cases in the short run, but it’s almost doomed strategically. It will not make the U.S. great again.

Jan 23 , 2017What we are witnessing today is not “the toss out of globalization” or “de-globalization”, but rather a new era or phase of globalization or “re-globalization” wherein greater and more complicated challenges become the order of the day. Therefore we need concerted efforts more than ever before to ascertain the big trends as well as individual difficulties and work out consensus and solutions for collective actions to “make globalization great again”. China has no option but to be in the fore front of globalization and global governance.
- Humanity has to choose between pressing ahead with globalization and backpedaling. China’s president seized the moment to inject enthusiasm for economic globalization as it faces strong headwind from the US.

Jan 20 , 2017While the incoming Trump administration has stirred fears that it will direct the US in an inward direction, there is plenty of reason to think that the new president is pro-trade in ways that will re-shape but not destroy the global playing field.
- Americans should understand that a harmonious, prosperous, powerful yet responsible United States constitutes part of the favorable external environment that China wishes to have. That understanding is also best for the well-being of both countries.

Jan 20 , 2017It is foreseeable that the “America first” policy will undermine the present global economic and geopolitical patterns, bringing uncertainty to the world. But so long as both sides give up the mentality of zero-sum rivalry and persist in cooperation, the Sino-US relationship will come through the current period of uncertainty and maintain the momentum of steady and healthy development.
- Chinese President Xi Jinping, in his unprecedented appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, calls for new models of global growth, cooperation, governance and development.
