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
Wang Wen: Africa has a lot that China can learn from
I often write on the flight. This habit makes me more productive, but it carries huge risks. For example, it is easy to forget the laptop on the cabin seat. Two weeks ago, when I was transferring flights in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, the risks finally boiled over. It happened on my way back to Beijing from a visit to Zimbabwe. When a friend who works for a Chinese company in Harare heard that I was on the same plane as his parents, he asked me to help the aging couple to find their way around the Addis Ababa airport for a transfer to Shanghai. ...2019-10-08
Wang Wen: How Trump makes Chinese love China more
"Is the US a beautiful country?" My son, a pupil, suddenly raised an odd question. "Not necessarily!" I answered. "If you mean landscape, then yes - many places of the US are quite beautiful. But if you mean the society or politics, the answer is 'not necessarily attractive.'" "Then why do we translate the US as meiguo in Putonghua?" he asked. Mei literally means beautiful and guo means country....2019-09-24
Wang Wen: China’s rise, diamond doesn’t know its worth
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....2019-09-17

Wang Wen: What US embassy’s mooncake gift means
I received a special gift for the Mid-Autumn Festival this year: three boxes of mooncakes from the US Embassy in China. I shared the delicious dessert with my colleagues, and I appreciated the generosity of the senior US diplomat who sent me the gift. Over the past few months, we used to have heated arguments, but it was what that made us friends. Our argument started this spring when the US embassy cancelled my visa to the US without giving an explanation. I had paid tens of visits to the US, had been to more than 20 US states and have been responsible for a major project on China-US people-to-people exchanges. But none of this justifies the cancellation of my visa. ...2019-09-10
Wang Wen: China’s monetary sovereignty stands strong
By suppressing China, the US wants to maintain global hegemony. But by countering the US, China aims at protecting its own sovereignty. China's purpose is more just. For Chinese people, the US dollar's exorbitant privilege is a bullying act in the finance sector. Fortunately, China's yuan is rising unhindered, and the nation has dealt a blow to the US dollar's exorbitant privilege in defending monetary sovereignty. However, this is still a difficult path and China needs to walk in a more steady fashion....2019-09-03
