“Wang Wen on Changing World” in Global Times
On August 20, 2019, Wang Wen, Executive Dean of Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China (RDCY), opened the new column “Wang Wen on Changing World” in Global Times (English edition). Following is the list of all articles. ...2019-09-04
Wang Wen: What’s behind the fear to criticize the US?
"Why does no one dare to criticize the US, which is the main country engaging in unilateralism? Why is the international community at its wits' end after the US has pulled itself out of various treaties and organizations? Why doesn't the international community jointly rein in the US international power?" My three questions surprised many of those present and added a tinge of excitement to the tedious breakout session. Then, I continued, "The 2030 agenda that sets out to achieve the 17 goals including 'no poverty' and 'zero hunger' needs clear and feasible mechanism rather than just empty talk." ...2019-12-03
Wang Wen: ‘Gn’ shows how power structures shape new intl governance mechanism
It is hard to imagine that Azerbaijan, a country that ranks above 90 in terms of area and population, has such a global appeal, if you haven't taken part in Global Baku Forum. I almost thought President Ilham Aliyev was the leader of a superpower, when he stood in the center of more than 40 former presidents and prime ministers from more than 30 countries and posed with them for pictures at the opening ceremony....2019-11-12
Wang Wen: Embracing and benefiting from China the best choice for the world
During my Cairo visit, I suggested to a few Egyptian diplomats that their country should allow visa-free entry for Chinese passport holders so they could visit and help promote Egypt's economic development. I was surprised to hear the reasons why this would be difficult. Apparently, there aren't enough hotels, only a few shopping malls, an underdeveloped payment system, and a shortage of Chinese tour guides. If there are too many Chinese traveling in Egypt, the country could not handle it, they explained. ...2019-11-05
Wang Wem: Hong Kong should be wary of US interference
There is another thing I cannot understand. It has been 22 years since Hong Kong returned to the motherland. Why do so many youngsters still not recognize their motherland? Why don't they respect the rule of law and social order? Why do they prefer violence? As one of the most competitive cities in the world, Hong Kong's educational and social elites have to rethink these questions. However, just as the Chinese word weiji, literally crisis, is a combination of the words "danger" and "opportunity," the social crisis of Hong Kong in 2019 is also an opportunity for the city to seek change and take off again....2019-10-29
Wang Wen& Liu Ying: Ten areas where China and US need to focus
Substantial progress has been made in the latest round of China-US trade consultations on October 11. The volatile trade dispute which has taken global economic circles by storm over the past year and a half hasn't led to the collapse of the two countries' trading relationship in at least 10 fields. Cooperation in ties hasn't evaporated but rather seems to be strengthening. Enhancing cooperation in these 10 areas will not only be a key to stabilize ties but also an effective way to reverse global pessimism....2019-10-25
Wang Wen: Finance trumps military power in global politics
We think tank scholars often summarize the lessons of the US decline. A major lesson is that the successful great power of the 21st century must rely not on squeezing others but on its own governance. If in the future, China gets an upper hand on the US in infrastructure, 5G, social security, quality of life, technological innovation and education, Beijing will emerge the obvious winner. But this can't be achieved by tragedies precipitated by military or other conflicts. Hence we need to avoid conflict with the US....2019-10-22
Wang Wen: Xinjiang deserves respect from the world
A man called Muztagata, so goes the tale, always went to distant places to fight enemies, and when he finally came home, he found his wife and nine children, who had been waiting for him to come back, had turned into icebergs. Then Muztagata himself turned into a high mountain to accompany his family and safeguard what is now Bulungkol township, Akto county in Kizilsu Kirgiz Autonomous Prefecture, the westernmost part of China. At the foot of Mount Muztagata, Li Wenjuan, chief of the Communist Party of China (CPC) local township committee in Bulungkol, told me the tale about love, home and country. But to me, the story of Li herself is more touching. The petite 29-year-old woman is as powerful as Muztagata. ...2019-10-15
Great Power’s Long March Road: The views of China's rejuvenation and the future of the world after hundred countries’
The book Great Power’s Long March Road: The views of China's rejuvenation and the future of the world after hundred countries’ visit spans the Chinese history of the five centuries before and after, covering all major powers in the world.
I have often been invited to seminars abroad and give keynote speeches in recent years, and was occasionally remunerated, which surprised me at first but then I gradually got used to it. A decade or two ago, if invited to international seminars, Chinese scholars would usually be busy applying for financial aid from schools. But over recent years, some active Chinese scholars have been frequently invited by international organizations that will pay for their travel, accommodation and other expenses, and sometimes even offer them remuneration as well as a first-class round trip.
