Ding Gang: K-pop strikes the right chord in East Asia
Korean pop (K-pop), which found birth in South Korean culture, represents a symphony of various styles and genres of music. Observing how K-pop developed and thrived can help us reassess cooperation in East Asia. As we learn to perceive young people - understand what they want, what makes them sad and happy, and how they see each other - we will definitely find ways to increase trust. Cultural phenomena like K-pop are resonating among the young in East Asia and finding favor during cultural interaction. ...2019-10-10
Ding Gang: How to grow in China, Tech it from Huawei
I visited the headquarters of Chinese tech titan Huawei in Shenzhen, South China's Guangdong Province, Tuesday afternoon with journalists from the US and Germany. During the four hours of interview, the words of former 3Com Corporation CEO Bruce Claflin kept coming to my mind that it would also be an amazing story if Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei's success took place in the US. The Chinese tech giant's story began in Shenzhen in the context of the resurgent Asian nation's reform and opening-up. A company like Huawei could only emerge in a market economy which offered favorable conditions....2019-09-26
Ding Gang: The road to sustainable peace in Asia
It was around 10 pm when I found myself on a bus leaving Gimhae International Airport for downtown Busan in South Korea. The roads of the city that became famous in Asia for hosting the 2002 Asian Games, were brightly lit up. A bridge spanning the Nakdong River was festooned with colorful lights. Coming across such a site, not many would be able to dredge up the fierce war that took place there about 70 years ago. ...2019-09-19
Ding Gang: ‘Balance of power’ a strategic trap for India
While scholars in the US and India generally believe that a full alliance between the two sides is unlikely, the two countries can still reach a general consensus on balancing the rise of China, since it is in their common interest. In reality, balance of power is usually utilized by a certain powerful country to make coalitions or military alliances to counter its rivals. ...2019-09-12
Ding Gang: Resurgent identity in ascendant India
Over the past more than 70 years since its independence in 1947, India has been facing the challenge of building national identity. It's widely believed that the move to revoke India-administered Jammu and Kashmir's autonomy by the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi through constitutional amendments is a means of consolidating national identity. Many other multi-religious and multi-ethnic Asian countries, in fact, are facing the same challenge....2019-09-05
Ding Gang: Tracking development: Railway is the key
It was a wonderful experience traveling from Zhangjiakou, a city in North China's Hebei Province, to Beijing by train K42. Although high-speed trains have become a popular choice for foreign visitors, the slower "green trains" can help them see a fuller picture of China. The sights through the windows of high-speed and slower trains can offer a 360 degree view of China. Railway is a benchmark for the development of rising powers, especially those with large populations and expansive territory. It is also a scale to measure the level of industrialization....2019-08-29
Ding Gang: Can religious identity bring unity to India?
The Indian government has abolished the special status for India-controlled Kashmir and decided to split the region into two union territories to be directly ruled by the central government. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had vowed to do so during his campaign for the 2014 election. During the general election 2019, Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) again promised to revoke Kashmir's special status. Such moves have intensified tensions in the region. ...2019-08-22
Ding Gang: China powers the Indonesian dream
Seated opposite us in a conference room, Tulus Martini, a young Indonesian mother, was answering our questions in fluent Chinese. A blue sign was hanging on the wall. It read "Jawa 7 Coal-Fired Power Plant. "In 2017, China Energy Engineering Group Zhejiang Thermal Power Construction Co Ltd started building this power plant in Kota Serang in the northwest region of Java, Indonesia. The plant is a key project of Indonesia's medium-term plan to add 35 million kilowatts of generation capacity, as well as China's first overseas mega-kilowatt class thermal power project....2019-08-15
