On December 2, the United Arab Emirates marks its National Day every year. This year the day is especially important for me and my country as we are celebrating the 48th anniversary of its founding. On this day, we remember the establishment of the UAE – a collection of seven Emirates (or states). As well as an opportunity to celebrate our young and dynamic nation, this anniversary provides an opportunity to consider how far we have come in building upon our foundations and the respective progress we have achieved. This is a particularly momentous year as it is the 35th anniversary of bilateral relations between China and the UAE. For China of course it is also a noteworthy year with the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China. When we take stock of the rapid progress of the UAE, we can see that it is quite dizzying, as its dynamic and diverse economy and cities have rapidly developed within a few short years. The nation's GDP has expanded more than eight times since … [Read more...] about Golden era of China-UAE relations
Video PlayerClose ZHENGZHOU, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- Archaeologists have unearthed a number of circular foundations at a Neolithic site of Longshan Culture dating back about 4,000 years in Huaiyang, central China's Henan Province, and believe they are one of China's earliest granaries. The Shizhuang Site was discovered when workers built a factory. According to an archaeological survey, the site covers 30,000 square meters with the main living area of 5,000 square meters surrounded with rammed earth walls. The ground bases of the granaries are located inside the ancient settlement. The Henan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology began excavation of the site in July. Cao Yanpeng, an associate researcher at the institute, said the Longshan Culture represents a gradual transition from a primitive society to a civilized era. The cultural sites were discovered in places in the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River, including the current provinces of Shanxi, Shaanxi, … [Read more...] about 4,000-year-old granaries discovered in central China’s Neolithic ruins
An early claim of the current US Administration was that China has been taking advantage of the US for many decades and previous presidents have failed to tackle it. President Donald Trump even said he did not blame China for it. It is true that the initial stages of China's rise benefited from imports by the US and other Western economies, since domestic incomes were low. However, when Deng Xiaoping telegraphed CEOs of western multinationals to come invest in China in 1979, it was so those MNCs could take advantage of low wages, increase profits and supply the US and others with affordable products which have improved American lifestyles and kept inflation in consumer goods industries low or negative. After China joined the WTO in late 2001, it became even clearer China was a "land of opportunity" for US business. In 2004 the prestigious Harvard Business Review devoted a whole edition to "Doing Business in China" and I thought I'd quote a little from the copy I still have in my … [Read more...] about China’s rise has been win-win, not zero-sum
'The fact that Modi and Xi exuded confidence to accelerate the negotiations for a border settlement alone underscores that the Russia-India-China triangle has become very dynamic,' notes Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar.
