The New Prospect of African-Chinese Partnership

At the beginning of each year, Chinese diplomats visit Africa as a symbol of the special relationship that exists between our peoples. In February 2021, China and my country, Nigeria, celebrated the 50th anniversary of our bilateral cooperation.

The Biden administration’s arrival, after years of turbulent, impulsive, and damaging policies pursued by the Trump administration, was met with new hopes and optimism around the world.

“Dual Circulation Generates a Unique Juncture” – An Interview with Ecuadorian Ambassador to China Carlos Larrea

The new development paradigm which China has entered known as the “dual circulation,” has been seen as a great opportunity by Ecuador as it seeks to maintain the growth of its non-oil exports.

Biden and China: An opportunity for a reset

Since U.S. President Joe Biden's election in November, a slew of commentaries have discussed the state of China-U.S. relations, with various authors offering thoughts on what they think should or will be the future trajectory. Given the contentious state of current American political dialogue, it should probably come as little surprise that there is a decided mix of American views on China and the bilateral relationship.

The Future of Work

We are living during the biggest ever work experiment which has pushed us 10 years into the future in the span of just one. It is incredible what can be done when we have no choice. Many of those who doubted people could work from home have eaten their words as we all have gotten used to zoom calls, set up home offices, and worked out how to balance work and personal time. If we examine what this may look like in the short and long term, it is interesting to see some of the opportunities and challenges that lie before us.

Why China-India Relations Matter

It is not easy to talk about peace when two protagonists confront each other. It is danger­ous to try to broker peace when armies are ranged face to face on either side of a hypothetical dividing line, charged by high levels of adrenalin, raring to lunge at each other. It is more like what T.S. Eliot described in his play The Family Reunion through the words of Aunt Agatha: “In a world of fugi­tives, the person taking the opposite direction will appear to run away.”

AfCFTA can benefit Africa's youth and women and increase Sino-African cooperation

The new year has come with good tidings for Africa despite the devastating economic effects of the novel coronavirus pandemic on the global economy.

China-US cooperation on climate change can break the ice

The year 2020 was a turning point in so many ways. A pandemic tested our capacity for international cooperation. Our impact on the changing environment became more urgent. That was demonstrated in alarming evidence of worsening global warming and, for the first time, human-made materials outweighed all life on earth. And the two major powers in the world, the United States and China, appeared to be locked in geopolitical confrontation, with commentators fearing they are destined for war, or at least a decoupling of their massive economies.

China-Africa friendship stronger after COVID-19 test

From Jan. 4-8, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi paid official visits to five African countries – Nigeria, Congo, Botswana, Tanzania and Seychelles.

“Our Economy Has Grown Thanks to the Relationship with China”

The year 2020 marks a decade since the launch of the Free Trade Agreement between China and Peru, two countries with a longstanding friendly relationship, which is also reflected in their economic ties. China has been the prime commercial partner of the South American nation for six consecutive years. At the end of last October, Walter Martos Ruiz, who was then the Prime Minister of Peru, took time out to speak to China Today about his confidence that the increase in trade relations with China will favor the policy of economic reactivation promoted by the government of President Martín Vizcarra.

The Transformational Moment: Towards an Ecological Civilization

COVID-19 has stopped much of the world in its tracks. The pandemic has created what many hope history will remember as the Great Pause. We have before us, however, a moment during which we can turn this great pause, and the catastrophe that caused it, into an opportunity for a global re-set and the emergence of new hope for the future.

Working Together Towards a Sustainable Future

The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged every continent and put unprecedented strain on our economies. Yet, while we continue to focus on fighting COVID-19 and its consequences for the global economy, the clock has not stopped ticking on the other global crises: the climate crisis, the biodiversity crisis, pollution, and the over-exploitation of resources.

Capitalizing on China’s Poverty Alleviation Model

A poverty-free world has long been a dream of the world, but in one country that dream has become a reality. At a time when the world continues to grapple with eradicating poverty, China has managed the feat at the end of 2020.
