  • Is Trump serious about trade war with China?

    “This [appointment] is not a good sign, not a positive sign,” says Xie Tao, a senior research fellow at Center for China and Globalization (CCG), a think tank in Beijing, and Professor at the Foreign Studies University in Beijing. “There was a kind of euphoria over Donald Trump’s victory in China, and many Chinese were writing about how having him in the White House would be good for US-China relations. But in the last few weeks we’ve had a sudden turnaround, an about-face.”

  • China and US should move forward regardless of election result

    David Lampton, director of the China Studies at Johns Hopkins University in the US, offered solutions and elaborated on why there is plenty of hope for better bilateral relations, at a Beijing-based seminar hosted by the Center for China and Globalization on Thursday.

  • Harvey Dzodin: DPRK has won the Olympics, but not in terms of sports

    The DPRK delegation landed in ROK on February 9. North and South marched under a united Korean flag and the Korean leaders watched the opening ceremony while poor US Vice President Mike Pence sat nearby stone-faced, avoiding any contact with them.

  • More students returning from overseas to start business

    By the end of 2014, the country had a total of 305 start-up business incubators designed especially for students returning from abroad. These so-called “overseas students pioneer parks” are home to 22,000 start-ups, employing 63,000 returned students who have studied overseas, the report shows.

  • Talent drive looks to bring in international students

    China has stepped up its drive to lure overseas talent in its bid to become an innovation economy, less dependent on trade in manufactured goods. New measures include allowing foreign students to stay on in China after their degrees to take up jobs or internships and reducing red tape around residence permits.
