  • China’s newly passed Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law to bring deterrent effect against Western hegemony

    Top lawmakers in China on Thursday voted to pass the highly expected Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law, providing a comprehensive legal basis for blocking illegal foreign sanctions and preventing Chinese individuals and entities from suffering the damage resulting from such illegal sanctions. The new law will also offer sufficient legal foundation for taking an equal position with the West by imposing necessary countermeasures, Chinese legal experts said.

    The Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC) convened its 29th session on Monday in Beijing, which was scheduled to conclude on Thursday, and draft version of the anti-foreign sanctions law was put to review for the second time on Monday. According to the rules and procedures of the legislative body, the draft law in the agenda of the NPC Standing Committee meeting should generally be reviewed three times before being put to a vote. However, if there is consensus on all aspects of the draft law, it can be reviewed twice.

  • Commentary: Decoding CPC leadership's path to China's economic success

    In its pursuit of bringing happiness to the Chinese people and realizing the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has led the Chinese people in creating a phenomenon of rapid economic development and long-term social stability rarely seen in the world. This has become one of the most exciting success stories of this era.

    Last year, China emerged from the global headwinds to become the only major economy to register positive growth in GDP and foreign trade in goods, thanks to its effective anti-COVID-19 measures. The country's GDP increased by 2.3 percent year on year to cross the 100-trillion-yuan (about 15.49 trillion U.S. dollars) threshold, while its imports and exports of goods expanded by 1.9 percent.

  • Commentary: People: The ultimate success formula of century-old CPC

    The root cause and source of the power of a political party that has seen its membership explode from 50-plus individuals to over 95 million lies in its faith and ability to serve the people.

    In a world where the crisis of political representation is prompting a populist surge of disgruntlement across the Atlantic, the 100-year-old Communist Party of China (CPC) is upholding its time-honored philosophy of putting the people first, which is the key to both its success and its future.

  • Commentary: Twin failures of Taiwan authority's response to COVID-19

    The 74th World Health Assembly (WHA), which kicked off online on Monday, has decided not to include Taiwan on this year's agenda. The decision to exclude Taiwan once again proves that seeking "Taiwan independence" under the cover of the COIVD-19 pandemic is doomed to fail.

    Before 2016, the Taiwan region was able to participate in the WHA under a special arrangement made through cross-Strait consultations on the basis of the 1992 Consensus, which embodies the one-China principle upheld by both sides of the Taiwan Strait.

  • Hong Kong embraces pride, confidence, ends disorder, chaos

    A prospering China and a legally secured Hong Kong are what Hong Kong citizens aspire to, as well as a reality in today's world. However, such a reality is making the foreign supporters of the anti-China forces all hot and bothered.

    On July 7 local time, the White House unexpectedly announced the so-called "continuation of the national emergency with respect to Hong Kong" and the extension of relevant Hong Kong-related sanctions, claiming that the recent actions taken by China with respect to Hong Kong pose a threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the U.S.

  • New advances inspire China's deep space exploration

    With news of achievements pouring in these days, China is pushing forward its deep space exploration, aiming to contribute its wisdom in humankind's peaceful utilization of outer space.

    SPACE STATION CONSTRUCTION

    On April 29, China sent into space the core module of its space station, kicking off a series of key launch missions that aim to complete the construction of the station by the end of next year.

  • One-China policy never to be played with

    The World Health Assembly (WHA), the highest decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO), on May 24 refused to include a proposal on Taiwan’s participation in its agenda, which fully indicated that adherence to the one-China principle is a universal consensus of the international community.

    There is only one China in the world. The Government of the People’s Republic of China is the only legal government representing the whole of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory.

  • U.S. profiting from the China-Australia rift it stirred up

    The U.S. will not leave Australia to face “China coercion” by itself. So claimed US Secretary of State Antony Blinken at a press briefing with his Aussie counterpart Marise Payne on May 14. Indeed, the U.S. has always stood by Australia’s side in forming their hatred-driven, anti-China alliance. But as Australia gets stuck in the pair’s morality play and Cold War mentality at the expense of its economic and diplomatic interests in China, its ally is speculating and profiting from the feud.

  • UK report interferes in China's internal affairs

    With geopolitics being high on the agenda of the G-7 Summit this weekend, the British government released on Thursday its so-called "six-month report on Hong Kong", lavishing aspersions on Beijing as well as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and providing much-needed ammunition for a new round of China bashing.

    But British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab must have disappointed his allies again in the ongoing China-bashing crusade by merely repeating his usual empty platitudes.
