Opinion | Canada should drop Meng Wanzhou case, shaking free of US coattails

Canada has the right to halt the case, and strong reasons to do so, given the legal questions around the arrest and Trump’s political motivations.

Opinion | China’s experience shows coronavirus second wave need not be a disaster

The good news is Beijing’s experience shows we can tame second waves in a way that minimises disruption through greater preparedness and understanding. In the next stretch of the battle against the coronavirus, global anti-pandemic efforts need to be smarter and more collaborative.

The View | Reform the WTO for a post-coronavirus world. The global economy needs a champion to lead it out of the crisis

Collapsing trade must be rebuilt to spur recovery. The WTO can work on addressing trade restrictions on key supplies in the short term, and lead discussions to lower tariffs and facilitate e-commerce and agricultural trade in the long term.

Opinion | As the West wanes, China and Europe can build a more inclusive world order together

Since the end of the cold war, the rationales used to justify the binary of East and West have been undercut by globalisation. However, Europe still has a role to play in balancing China and the US, and promoting global cooperation.

Opinion | In the face of the new coronavirus, China’s economy is more resilient than it was in 2003

While some have pointed out that the global economy is more vulnerable to shocks to China’s economy than during the Sars outbreak, China today has more effective policy levers, deeper resources and better production capacity.

The View | China is running the world’s largest tourism deficit. How can it plug the gap?

Chinese tourist traffic to the world is growing but not the other way round. To decrease its deficit in trade in services and improve the world’s understanding of the nation, China must develop new ways to enhance visitors’ experiences.

The View | Instead of US-China decoupling, 2020 should bring acceptance of different development models

In a multipolar world, a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to development will not work. We must find ways to accommodate ‘developmental diversity’ while upholding the institutions that support international cooperation.

The View | Why China should lead the mission to save the ailing WTO and revive multilateralism

China, having benefited tremendously from WTO membership, is now in a position to spearhead WTO reforms as a bridge between developed and developing nations. It won’t be easy but Beijing can get the ball rolling in areas of agreement such as e-commerce regulations and marine plastic pollution.

Opinion | From the Syrian civil war to Yemen to energy, China has a larger role to play in the Middle East

The Middle East faces a transition to a post-oil economy, impeded by great power interference and inter-regional rifts. Solutions should come within the region, but Beijing is uniquely positioned as a partner, mediator and customer.

The View | With the US absent, China should seize the day and join the CPTPP to promote a more integrated trading order in Asia

Since the CPTPP’s launch, the massive trade pact has been beneficial to its members, and China would be no different. Other members have also shown interest in Beijing joining, which would be one step closer to a free-trading Asia-Pacific.

Opinion | How to encourage the flow of Hong Kong’s youth, talent and innovation across the Greater Bay Area

Hong Kong has prospered as a gateway to China. Now, the Greater Bay Area offers an opportunity for the city to reposition itself as a hub for talent and innovation, thus offering brighter options for its unsettled young people.

Opinion | Chinese universities need to attract more foreign students, but not by treating them differently

China has a talent-deficit problem that, if unsolved, will constrain its ability to innovate and further develop. It should take several steps to meet the challenge, starting with removing the wall between local and international students.

Opinion | After the G20 trade truce, China and the US need clearer rules and more engagement to get relations back on track

China should address American concerns on investment and forge better non-governmental and state-level ties in the US, while each side should encourage more study, travel and work in the other country. Better data would also give a more balanced picture of trade.

Opinion | In Modi’s second term, China and India can overcome their Himalayan differences to benefit Asia

Opinion | China’s belt and road plan has a branding problem and needs to be redefined as a global growth project

Absent a clearly defined plan, Beijing’s belt and road strategy has been misunderstood. It has evolved into a global development project in the past five years and should be redefined accordingly to dispel misunderstanding.
