ollision of thought: Colleg 娱乐地图view cultural China

“Over the past 5,000 years, history has recorded the rise and fall of kingd

oms and dynasties. One hundred and fifty years ago, the West conquered the world but 娱乐地图女神会所

failed to conquer the hearts of Chinese. Now, Uncle Sam is seeking unilateralism by abandoning world ord

 娱乐地图女神会所ers since World War II, but they encountered resistance all over the world, especially from China,” said Wang Yao

heng, one of 12 contestants in the annual English Speech Contest held by the College of Liberal Arts & Law of Da

lian Minzu University on June 28. He made no secret of his admiration of Chinese culture. 娱乐地图女神会所

“After being informed of the speech contest, I was very excited about it. As a Chinese youth, I long for

an opportunity to express my love for the culture of our motherland. In addition, this is also a figh 娱乐地图

t back to those who turn a deaf ear to both affairs at home and abroad. I want to tell them that we college students are no

t a “spoiled generation, we are not the kind of know-nothing-but-pleasure” generation, Wang said. 娱乐地图女神会所

The contestants were ethnically diverse, and expressed their reverence to traditional Chinese culture and great pride

 娱乐地图for the social and economic achievements made by Chinese people in the past several decades. The recognition o

f Chinese cultural identity among young students from different ethnic groups reache

d a record high against the background of the global trade war and unilateralism triggered by the US. 娱乐地图

However, as to the role of Chinese traditional culture in the modern era, students’ views varied.

Some believe that Chinese culture is still as vibrant as it used t 娱乐地图女神会所

o be, while others see that Chinese culture needs to remember its traditions.

Tong Fei, a contestant, said that the absence of filial piety among members of the younger generation has become a crue 娱乐地图

l reality. For instance, the notion of “raising children for old age” is no longer accepted. Increasingly, more people no lo

nger believe that it is practical to wait for their children to take care of them in their old age. 娱乐地图女神会所

Contestant Shi Jia expressed her worries over Chinese cultural identity in the new era an

d appealed for revitalization of tradition. “Abandoning Chinese cultural identity is very dangerous. Only if we ke

ep our cultural identity, then we know who we are, and our nation will survive,” she said.

Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western attitude in C

hina. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and digest

their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.

Habib said relations with China have also benefited Boeing, another major company in Washington.

“There’s no question that China is the most significant destinati

on for aerospace,” said Habib, as China “has the biggest middle class and it’s growing. Alon

g with that comes a tremendous increase in demand for both passenger travel and freight mobility.”

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agricultural products

such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

He said through the SAR government’s efforts and a ratio

onal discussion among the people of

Hong Kong, the city will eventually reach a consensus and any doubts over the issue will be dispelled.

Han, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Comm

ittee, hoped that all sectors in Hong Kong will work together to safeguard the image of the city’s rule of law.

The SAR government proposed to amend its Fugitive Offenders Ordinance and Mutual Legal Assista

nce in Criminal Matters Ordinance in March. The proposed amendments will allow Hong Kon

g to surrender fugitive offenders to jurisdictions with which it does not currently have extradition arrangements on

a case-by-case basis, with prior approval from the chief executive before an application is submitted to the courts.

es it a large exporter of manufactured goods to the US and

Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumption in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of eco

nomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a situa

tion, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.

To make up for the increasing savings gap, the US needs to introduce and use more foreign ca

pital, which will further enlarge the trade deficit. Therefore, the US cannot simultaneously maintain a high g

rowth rate, invest massively in infrastructure, reduce the trade deficit and restrict the inflow of foreign capital.

What is really questionable is that, despite its contempt for over-regulation of the economy, the US administration has been tryi

ng to impose regulations on international trade, even for its trade partners’ domestic economic management.

They cited a report in February from Trade Partnership World

wide as saying that increasing tariffs on $200 billion of goods to 25 percent, coupled with tariffs already in place — as well as expect

ed Chinese retaliation — would reduce US employment by more than 934,000 jobs and push down the US GDP by 0.37 percent.

According to data from the General Administration of Customs, two-way trade between China and

the US declined 11.2 percent year-on-year to 1.1 trillion yuan ($162.5 billion) in the period from January to April.

The fact that Beijing is still sending a delegation to the US for the trade talks is “very wise on China’s part”, said Gary Hufb

auer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington.

Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for Internat

ional Peace, said it “makes sense to continue the talks because the alternative would be a drastic signal to markets”.

China has exercised great restraint and goodwill in

trying to maintain stable relations with the US,” he said.

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs Universi

ty, said Washington has pushed a hard line in relations with Beijing in recent years.

“The Taiwan question is much more complicated and nonnegotiable,” Li said.

“If the US side continues to misinterpret the one-­China policy, it will irreparably damage Sino­-US ties,” he warned.

The US Senate will have to vote on the act before it can become law. The time of the vote is unknown.

“The consensus among US officials is to be tough on China, and room for rational option

s is rapidly shrinking as overconfidence and rash actions become the new norm,” he said.

Abe to send envoy to Belt and Road ForumAbe will

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will send his special envoy Toshihiro Nikai, secretary-general of the rulin

Azerbaijan sent a delegation to the first China Intern

ational Import Expo in Shanghai last November. “This kind of expo is extrem

ely important, and provides a chance for Azerbaijan to reach out to the Chinese ma

rket and establish contact with Chinese companies,” Hajiyev said, adding last year’s event was extremely helpf

ul to Azerbaijan and helped traders to understand the requirements and demands of the Chinese market.

Almost 50 percent of China’s trade with the Caucasus region are from

Azerbaijan, and Azerbaijan has invested $1.7 billion in Chinese securities. Current trade volu

me between China and Azerbaijan is above $1.5 billion, and Hajiyev believes there is sti

ll more to do to promote bilateral trade, as the two countries have very good relations.

Companies from the two countries are engaged in projects for the

petrochemical industry, and the two countries can touch upon o

ther strategic areas such as energy and communication, the foreign affairs head added.
