Chen Dingding: One year into the US-China trade war, Trump is still far from winning
Capturing the world’s attention, the U.S.-China trade war has been going on for more than a year now, and yet we still cannot see an end to it. Recently, China allowed its currency to depreciate to the lowest level in a decade, simultaneously announcing that its companies will stop purchasing American agricultural products. In response, the Trump administration further escalated the situation by officially calling China a currency manipulator....2019-09-18
Is the Greater Bay Area China’s Future?
In recent decades, in addition to the famous Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), China has aimed to reshape the Pearl River Delta, which includes Hong Kong, Macao, and nine cities in Guangdong province.

3 Ways China Can Make the Belt and Road Initiative More Successful
As a midsize European country, Italy is keeping a subtle balance between the European Union and China since its signing of a memorandum of understanding on joining Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

Trade War Truce Will Relieve the U.S., for now
On February 24, U.S. President Trump twitted that he would delay the tariffs increase due to progress in negotiations with China, indicating that the possibility of reaching an agreement increases. The Sino-US trade friction in the past few months has confirmed that continued confrontation can only hurt China and the United States and even endanger the global economy. According to Reuters, the trade war has caused billions of dollars in losses to both sides. After announcing the above decision, Trump made a speech at the White House and expressed his hope to reach a trade agreement with China that is beneficial to both countries. In fact, if the issue gets properly resolved, it will be positive news not only for China and the United States but also for the whole world. ...2019-03-07
How Does China Really Think About WTO Reform?
It has been roughly two decades since China was permitted to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001. Prior to its accession, there was one economic metric on which it already ranked first. China, by multiple estimates, had the largest economy outside the WTO, ranging from foreign trade to the stock of foreign direct investment. Given the skyrocketing growth of the Chinese economy during that time, it takes very little imagination to foresee that China’s leadership came to appreciate membership in the WTO as a watershed for the country to embark on a more promising economic future....2019-03-06
