China to remain steadfast protecting national security

China welcomes the United States’ willingness to develop a stable mi

litary-to-military relationship, but will remain steadfast in safeguarding national sove

reignty and security, a senior Chinese military official said on Saturday in Singapore.

In a keynote speech at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue on Saturday morning, acting US Defen

se Secretary Patrick Shanahan said that China and the US can still have a cooperative relati

onship. Although competition does exist between the two countries, it does not always mean conflict, he added.

Shanahan also noted some “destabilizing activities” in Asia and emphasized the US’s military

presence and commitment in the region. He called for more communication between the US and Chi

nese militaries to settle their differences and build a constructive relationship.

President’s Russia visit eyes global stabilityernational Coo

President Xi Jinping’s upcoming visit to Russia reflects close cooperation between China and Russia, which is impo

rtant to maintain the stability of the international community amid rising uncertainties, analysts said.

Xi will make a state visit to Russia from June 5 to 7 and attend the 23rd St. Petersburg Inter

national Economic Forum, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang announced on Wednesday.

The trip is part of the annual exchange of visits between the two countries’

heads of state, after Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the Second Belt and Road For

um for International Cooperation in Beijing in April and had talks with Xi on the sidelines.

The visit will further display the strength of bilateral ties, which are developing “very good” momentum both politically and

economically, said Ruan Zongze, vice-president of the China Institute of International Studies.

US President Donald Trump, in the name of “national sec

urity”, signed an executive order on May 15 that led the US Department of Commerce to put Huawei and its affilia

tes on an Entity List, which would restrict the sale or transfer of US technologies to the company.

Craig Allen, president of the council, said many of its members are suppliers to Huaw

ei, and all of them have been impacted by the Department of Commerce’s move.

Founded in 1973, the council represents around 200 US companie

s doing business with China, including Apple and Microsoft. It also includes chipmakers Inte

l and Qualcomm, which have said they would stop offering supplies to Huawei until further notice.

The members will follow US law, but there is a cost associated with that, Allen told China Daily.

If they wanted a replay of what happened to ZTE, a Chinese company which relies heavily on outsider

technologies, they may never see it. Because Huawei is a dramatically different kind of business.

The Plan B Huawei has just revealed — a series of self-developed chips — is only part of what makes it an enterprise of strategic insight, and hence resilience. Over

time, that insight has rewarded it with a viable biosphere that its founder Ren Zhengfei believes will enable it to weat

her the storm. “Our growth may drop a bit in the wake of US restrictions, but negative growth is impossible,” said a confident Ren during a Tuesday inter

view with Chinese media, adding that Huawei has cultivated longstanding trust with industry partners.

That may be why, even after Google barred Huawei from some Android featur

es, Ren spoke highly of the Silicon Valley giant, praising it as a “good company”. That may

Joefe Santarita, dean of the Asian Center at the Unive

rsity of the Philippines, said Asian values promote consensual approach and communitarianism

rather than individualism, and they prioritize social order and harmony as well as respect for elders, disc

ipline and a paternalistic state along with the primary role of government in economic development.

“Asian values are the salient ingredients on how to learn to work togeth

er through trust and consequently promote globalization,” Santarita told China Daily.

He cited China’s guanxi, a cultural concept that stresses deep personal connections and maintaining relations.

“Guanxi is a clear manifestation of a success story of a cultural element that is aptly applied in

the business sector. Trust is a fundamental element for Chinese businessmen who have engaged in co

mmercial partnerships and international trading systems for centuries,” he said.

Santarita said a similar concept can also be found in other Asian count

ries, citing the Philippines’ compadrazgo and Indonesia’s bapakism as examples.

“It’s such a difference visiting today to see so many different animate

d productions being done in China. Chinese writers, directors and animators ha

ve really jumped into rich storytelling and created really fascinating worlds that the global audience will enjoy seeing,” he says.

Over the past eight years, D’Ambrosia has overseen production of such popular Disney Junior’s shows such as the Emmy Awar

d-winning Sophia the First and The Lion Guard, which is based on Disney’s Oscar-winning 1994 film The Lion King.

Speaking about the key to appealing to children aged between 2 and 7

, he reveals that the tales his team creates are built on down-to-earth research.

“We actually do go into preschools and talk to children about the stori

es and the characters. So we find their words very valuable and adapt our stories to make su

re that they not only comprehend the stories but also relate to the aspirations of the characters,” says D’Ambrosia.

microcosm of the national aspirations of both of their countries to gain a place in the global space arena via the cooperation and assistance of China.

Chea and Moreno Pena are part of a training program hosted by the China Academy of Space Technology.

The idea is to train a small group of elite foreign students to become s

pace industry engineers capable of developing and manufacturing satellites on their o

wn, thus enabling their countries to build their respective space industries and explore space.

Eight people are taking part in the program, which began in March 2018-two Ve

“I am the first-ever Cambodian studying spacecraft knowledge,” Chea told

China Daily recently at the Shenzhou Institute, which is run by the academy.
