Chinese army incursion into India’s territory


The fresh transgression by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army in Ladakh‘s Chumur that began on Thursday morning — hours before Chinese President Xi Jinping landed in India — tuned grave by late night. In terms of numbers, this is the third. One other has been on at Chumur, and one in Demchok. But going by … Continue reading

Is Chinese history only 5,000 years? Legends say 50,000 years!


If you ask a Chinese person about the length of Chinese history, it is easy for them to tell you we have 5,000 years history. But I suspect this easy answer is because so many historical materials were lost in the past 2,200 years since “Burning and Burying” (焚书坑儒, Fen Shu Keng Ru) in Qin … Continue reading

Do the Chinese love China?


The following are the views of a Chinese netizen: Do the Chinese love China? For this question, the answer is easy – no! Perhaps you are shocked by seeing my answer because you may think the Chinese are really united and they often refute the criticism from other countries, especially western countries. But I am … Continue reading

China targets foreigners through expat websites


In July, China Daily Mail warned about expat websites targeting expats. Unfortunately, this situation has deteriorated, with one of our favourite websites, eChinacities, going over to “the dark side.” For that reason, we are reposting this article. For many years, China have used paid contributors on internet forums to shape commentary in favour of China, … Continue reading

Getting China’s Tower of Babel on record


Michael Wu, 20, a student at Peking University, grew up in Shanghai. But when he wants to talk to his cousins in Hainan, he needs to bring his mother along to interpret the conversation. The cousins in Hainan speak two kinds of Hainan dialect. “I actually cannot understand either of them,” Wu says. “It’s actually … Continue reading

China’s glass ceiling


“It’s over for America,” a Chinese academic told me in late 2008, two days after Goldman Sachs turned itself into a commercial bank in order to fend off possible collapse. “From here on, it’s all downhill.” Sitting in Beijing as American capitalism seemed to be hanging by a thread, it was easy to believe that … Continue reading

Cambodians flock to learn Mandarin


Seventeen-year-old Muth Sovannara is not like most Cambodian teenagers. For starters, he speaks three languages – his native Khmer, the English he spent most of his life studying, and, for three years now, Mandarin. Each weekday, he wakes early to get to his high school at 7am. After four hours of lessons in Khmer, the … Continue reading

Is English or Mandarin the language of the future?


The assumption that Mandarin will grow with China’s economic rise may be flawed. Consider Japan which, after spectacular post-war economic growth, became the world’s second-biggest economy. The Japanese language saw no comparable rise in power and prestige. The same may prove true of Mandarin. The character-based writing system requires years of hard work for even … Continue reading

China Aims to Drive Domestic Consumption


China is currently facing a spending crunch from Europe and the U.S., which is impacting the economy and threatening a possible “hard landing.” The superlative growth over the last decade has largely been fuelled by export demand for cheaper Chinese-made goods. The country built thousands of plants and added significant capacity to handle the significant influx … Continue reading

The new cold war: the democracy camp


In the new cold war, it could be seen that there are two groups: the autocracy camp, centring around China, Russia and the SCO, and the democracy camp, centring around most western democracies in Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and South Korea. This article will focus on the democracy camp. It is much … Continue reading
