John Ross: US policy on China won’t change
With deep seated problems apparent throughout the world, and increasing instability and uncertainties, will there be a change in fundamental US policy toward China? We have very good news that China and the US have reached a conclusion on a phase one trade deal, which is excellent. But I suppose the answer is "No." The US won't change its fundamental policy, whether Trump is reelected or not. If he is reelected, there obviously won't be fundamental changes. If he is not reelected, the candidates of the Democratic Party are also expected to hold hard line foreign policy. Elizabeth Warren even criticized Trump for not having enough take in US arm of forces. ...2019-12-27

John Ross: Huawei access to 5G in UK involves a struggle as Washington continues interference
Over the weekend, the UK's Sunday Times leaked information about a fight taking place within the British government over whether or not to allow Huawei to participate in Britain's development of its 5G network. It is directly in the UK's economic interest that Huawei participates in developing the country's 5G network. But this involves a struggle in the coming weeks as it is clear that the US' Trump administration is continuing to intervene in the internal affairs of not only China, but of the UK....2019-11-01

" (For) the people who lead these protests, their demands are not the ones that they put forward, and what they really want is the separation of Hong Kong from China," said John Ross, a senior fellow at the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China, on Thursday....2019-10-29

"2016: G20 and China"
This book from the "history" of the G20's past and present, a comprehensive discussion of the G20's origin and role, agenda,
The violent protests in Hong Kong are organized and led by external forces, as is evident to anyone who has seen such operations in other countries – for example, the 2014 Euromaidan as a coup d'etat attempt in Ukraine. The claim that these violent actions are "leaderless" or "spontaneous" is completely false as any view of the protesters, who are clearly well organized and trained to deal with the police, and any examination of the political facts, shows. The public leaders of the protests have strong links with both the U.S. and separatists in Taiwan.
