  • China looks to call bluff on Trump trade action

    As influential voices within the U.S. business community warn China that U.S. President Donald Trump is serious about tough action over Beijing’s trade practices, there is little sense of a crisis in the Chinese capital, where officials think he is bluffing.

  • China’s got the travel bug – but it lacks visitors

    Visitors from China may have become the biggest contributors to the global tourism market, but the Asian giant with a 5,000-year history apparently is not that attractive to foreign travellers. The number of inbound tourists grew at an average annual rate of just 1 per cent between 2005 and 2015 – and eight out of 10 of those were from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, according to a report by the Centre for China and Globalisation (CCG), a Beijing think tank.

  • Trump’s tax cut bill more of a political game

    Trump won the presidential election on the promise of helping the poor. But he is doing just the opposite. His pro-rich measures will have serious consequences for his presidency in the long run, because the further widening of the social income gap will become an almost insurmountable problem for him.

  • Trump Forms Trade Council Led by China Critic Peter Navarro

    Peter Navarro, a University of California at Irvine economics professor and a frequent critic of China’s trade practices, will lead a newly formed White House National Trade Council as an assistant to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.

  • S. China Sea arbitration: A US-led conspiracy behind the farce

    Since U.S. President Barack Obama took office, “Pivot to Asia” has become one of Washington’s political pursuits and military strategies. The disputes between China and the Philippines over the South China Sea, which was provoked by former Philippine President Aquino III, came just in time as it offered Washington a good excuse and easy approach to return to the region.
