Over the last 20 years, a number of thriving technology companies have emerged in China. This has invited much speculation about the country’s scientific and technological prowess, and about its ability to innovate. Some argue that China is already nipping at America’s heels in these domains, and has become a world leader in some sectors. Others believe that China is not quite as far along as it may appear, and the government’s regulatory clampdown on tech companies will impede its continued progress. Which is it?

In 2018, US President Donald Trump declared that the US had erred in backing China’s accession into the World Trade Organization in 2001. He was convicted that such political establishment had been lulled by China’s still juvenile economic situation in the late 1980s, and that American politicians failed to grasp that supporting China’s candidacy would create a political and economic risk to the US’ global hegemony.

Correctly understanding each other’s policies will avoid sinking into an infinite negative loop. Speculation about China-U.S. financial decoupling has returned. But politicization of financial matters will only do further damage to the already deteriorating bilateral relationship.

There is a global shift towards a new economic philosophy, which both Washington and Beijing are grappling with. Open understanding of both economies could help the two countries establish the foundation for cooperation.

China has had major success in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis, which the U.S. and other Western countries are reluctant to admit. It must now remain levelheaded and modest, sustain its victory and keep the elbow room it has obtained in diplomacy and public opinion.

Far more Chinese people than Americans express approval of their system and leadership, and they have good reason. Steady growth, good management, history and widened educational opportunity anchor their trust. Globally, Chinese are among the most optimistic about their government, especially younger people.

The problems the United States has with China boil down to several basic misunderstandings, starting with the fact that Marxism in China bears little resemblance to outdated Soviet ideology. The CPC should be understood from the perspective of human civilizations and, especially, Chinese civilization.

Because of its huge population and uneven development, China remains the largest developing country in the world. Everything is in transition. We ask that the country not be judged by imagination. Rather see it for what it is, in good faith. We are a hardworking nation setting great goals and striving to improve our lot.

China’s fast growing economy has been the story of the 21st century. By learning from past catastrophes, Beijing hopes to avoid the costly recessions that have burdened other wealthy nations who exposed their financial sector to risk-laden operations.

President Xi’s speech at the G20 calls to mind the childhood fable of the Three Little Pigs, in which houses of straw and sticks could not stand against a threat. The analogy is apt, as China’s response to COVID-19 has been robust. And it’s clearly worth emulating.
