On the eve of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China which began on Oct. 18 in Beijing, People’s Daily prepared a fast-moving four minute video giving the answers of 60 young Americans to what they think of China and its future prospects. The video features the assessment of Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the founder of the Schiller Institute, presenting her as the authority among those interviewed.
Outside of a trans-Atlantic world still dominated by geopolitics and “survival of the fittest”, another dynamic for mutual economic growth is gaining strength, as was seen at the Sept. 3-5 BRICS summit in Xiamen, China. Over the past ten years, the combined GDP of the five BRICS members (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) has grown by 179% and their trade by 94%, while the group’s New Development Bank, founded in 2014, is funding important projects. All that, as Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out, has helped stabilize the global economy.
Chinese President Xi Jinping, upon his arrival in Germany on July 4, released a signed article, carried in the mainstream media, titled “To Make the World a Better Place“. In it, he notes that the “Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, recently held in Beijing, is aimed at stepping up the synergy of development strategies and connectivity” among nations, and that it “chimes with the theme of this year’s Hamburg [G20] Summit.” He suggested that the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and G-20 cooperation “could complement and reinforce each other…”
On May 14-15 in Beijing, the Chinese government hosted the first international high-level conference specifically called to discuss the largest development project of all times, the Belt and Road Initiative, and its international ramifications. Over 130 nations were represented at the event, including 29 heads of state and government.
Alarmist media screamed last week that that an American military attack on North Korea was imminent and and that a major conflict was brewing, which threatened to lead to world war. And that, because of the unbalanced, unpredictable President Trump.
The Chinese news agency Xinhua published an article on Feb. 10 based on an interview with Helga Zepp-LaRouche, under the headline, “Interactions between Chinese, U.S. Leaders Very Positive Signs of Ties — German Expert”.
