China’s economic reco上海夜网as the fastest and stea

diest since World War II compared with any other major country.

上海夜网New China faced many twists and turns in the first 30 years in rebuilding its economy. Even durin

g the 40 years of reform and opening-up, it has successfully weathered many a powerful s

torm including four major external crises: the debt crisis in the early 1980s, Western sanctions from the late 1980s to上海夜网女神会所

the early 1990s, the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis and the 2008 global financial crisis.

Centralized leadership adds to China’s advantages

上海夜网Admittedly, the Chinese economy has been facing a new type of challenge since the second half of 2018 because of the tr

ade war launched against it by the US. Yet the new challenge cannot be compared with the past external crises. Ev

en in the 1990s, at the height of Western sanctions, China was able to reverse the trade deficit that had u上海夜网女神会所

ndermined its economy for nearly 100 years since the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-95).

上海夜网Now, China has to deal with the fifth major external challenge: the US-instigated trade war. Notwithstanding the s

aber-rattling of some US politicians and the US administration’s desperate attempt to prevent the rise of Chinese hi

gh-tech companies, which reminds one of the Cold War, do those trying to force China to concede ground by applying “

上海夜网maximum pressure” really understand how China has weathered powerful storms in the past decades?

Without economic resilience and expertise in the high-tech sector, China would not have been able to close the

wide gap with the US in national strength. Perhaps this is why the US has labeled China as a major competitor.上海夜网女神会所

The domestic political infighting in the US unseen in decades is likely t

o intensify and create a bigger problem for the White House. By contrast, the

strengthened centralized leadership of China is well-positioned to deal with any challenges with greater efficiency. In this上海夜网

regard, the US hawks, who have turned a blind eye to China’s resilience, should look at China’s history and see how it has

overcome challenges, and stop resorting to “maximum pressure” to fulfill their narrow political goals.上海夜网女神会所

Kampar was not the only one whom Cheng had studied and mimick

ed. Another player was the legendary Jan-Ove Waldner, whose multiple encounters with上海夜网品茶微信

top Chinese ping-pong players over a career spanning three decades made him a household name in China.

上海夜网Cheng met the then-15-year-old Waldner for the first time in China during an invitation m

atch. The last time the two played against each other was at the 1995 World Team Table Tennis Ch上海夜网品茶微信

ampionships in Atlanta, Georgia, when Cheng, representing the US, won by a narrow margin.

In between the two matches was Cheng’s 1985 visit to the US, to participate in the US Open representing China.

上海夜网Having witnessed the defeat of his teammate Jiang Jialiang, then ranked the

world’s No 1, at the hands of Wu Wenjia of Chinese Taipei. Cheng, mobilizing his varie

d techniques gained as a training partner, routed his opponent while dazzling the audience.上海夜网品茶微信

One of those in attendance was Larry Hodges, a wannabe-j

ournalist-turned ping-pong coach for junior players. “When I saw Cheng winning men’s sing

上海夜网les, doubles and teams at the 1985 US Open, I had no idea that our futures would be together,” he said.

In 1988, table tennis became an Olympic sport. That year, Cheng was invited by the US Table

Tennis Association to join a resident training program and coach some of the country’s top players and ju上海夜网品茶微信

niors at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs – his previous performance had clearly been marked down.

上海夜网”At the time I was the program’s manager and coach, and w

ould later become its director. Cheng and I shared one dorm and he discovered ea

rly on that I liked kung pao chicken,” said Hodges, referring to the spicy dish上海夜网品茶微信

that ranked among China’s most popular exports. “So he made it for us about once a week!”

Besides, it should try to reform the exchange rate system

and enhance th上海夜网女神会所e yuan’s exchange rate flexibility, so as to promote its internationalization and minimize the impact of the US’ monetary policy adjustme

asures to offset the spillover effects caused by US monetary policy adjustments.

Qualitative growth can tamp up economic base

China also has to build a modern industrial system and transform its econom

Martin Haase of Victoria, Canada, practiced tai chi with his mother from a young age. He

said that when he was a child, he was very active and always wanted to go to see the world. It was just at t

hat time that Chinese martial arts films entered Canada, and Bruce Lee and Jet Li’s kung fu movies fascinated him.

Haase learned tai chi with his mother since the age of 17 and has kept this habit for about 18

years. Later he came to Hunan province in Central China and joined the Hunan Provincial Wushu Association.

“Many foreign friends who come to China with an interest in tai chi will come

to the association to study with me,” Haase said. “I will introduce them to Hunan cult

ure and Chinese culture. Sometimes I show them around the city of Changsha as a translator and guide.”

In the Wushu Association, Haase met many teachers and friends of tai

chi. He believes that practicing kung fu can help you stay fit and gain confidence.
