The so-called allegations of “forced labor,” or “human rights abuses” in Northwest Chinas Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region are monstrous lies deliberately fabricated and spread by some foreign die-hard China hawks.The vicious intention lurking behind is to hold back the growth of China and related Chinese companies. Despite the country has repeatedly offered facts and truth, the anti-China forces cannot give up the ill-intended approach to slander Chinas development. However, the truth can never be denied that, with sustained social stability in Xinjiang, residents of various ethnic groups live harmoniously side by side and enjoy their work and life.Similar logic falls within the groundless accusation of “non-market economy” of China. The concept of “non-market economy countries” does not exist in the multilateral rules of the WTO, and instead, its the US always trying to formulate a self-interested standard and impose it on others.With the new Biden administration taking office, Washington has shown intention to end previous US governments reckless confrontational approach, while replaced with tactical schemes to cajole others to vilify China. Seeing ideological prejudice extending to various public disputes and a possibility of the Western clique to take joint moves on certain topics, China would inevitably encounter worse external environment.Its also clear that the Western world is now incapable to form a complete united front to confront China, especially after years of reckless obstruction over ties between the US and its so-called allies by the previous Trump administration, not to mention the colossal Chinese market which nearly no economy can afford to give up during the post-pandemic era.Essentially it is the economic foundation determining the development prospect of a country or a region. China has been upholding peaceful coexistence principles and seeking common development with others. During the sudden onslaught of the coronavirus, the country has stepped up efforts to facilitate pandemic prevention by offering medical supplies and vaccines. Moreover, it will continue to be one of the major drivers behind the global economic recovery from the once-in-a-century health crisis.Since China and the US are two countries with different social systems, it is understandable for the two to have differences or disagreements. What matters most is to manage them effectively through candid communication to prevent strategic miscalculation and avoid conflict and confrontation. Instead of obsessing with creating barriers, its expected that the US will meet China halfway and remove its unreasonable restrictions on bilateral cooperation, including the additional tariffs imposed by the previous Trump administration over Chinese products.The article was compiled based on an interview with Huo Jianguo, a vice chairman of the China Society for World Trade Organization Studies in Beijing, and former president of the research institute of Chinas Ministry of Commerce. bizopinion@globaltimes.com.cnload_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Chinas sanctions over EU officials and entities are justified and timely: Global Times editorialWe don’t think it is in the EU’s interest to change the bloc’s policy toward China under the … China and Russia set example for international community to deter Western coercionDespite the fact that neither China nor Russia has the intent to dominate the world order, the two …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1219250;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
