Chinese Publishers Rush to Grab the World Market

In the recent Chinese Publications Export Promotion Planning Conference, the General Administration of Press and Publications was pushing for more copyrighted publications to be exported not only to the major markets of Britain, the U.S., Germany, France and Russia, but also to countries surrounding China as well as Arabic, African, and Latin American countries. The “Go Out” strategy promotes these models: direct publishing overseas; using foreign planning skills for out-going projects; key products bringing along weaker ones; and publishing/printing bundling. In the recent couple of years, the China Publishing Group has already established a network of publishing companies around the globe.

Xinhua: Research Foresight Needed for Military Strategic Delivery

Xinhua recently published an article suggesting that the military’s strategic delivery capability is an important measure for national military capacity. The current Chinese strategic delivery is lacking theoretical studies, capacity building, reserve forces and a traffic mobilization mechanism. Chinese command methods are far behind the US Global Transportation Network. Strategic delivery requires integration among land, air and sea, as well as integration between national military and civilian systems. The article suggested that China should (1) establish an overall command system, (2) take full advantage of China’s railway system, and (3) enhance the “Military Representative System” along transportation lines.

Use Buying U.S. Bonds as a Political Chip

The Chinese state owned newspaper People’s Daily recently published an article discussing the way China purchases U.S. bonds. The article suggested that although Yi Gang, Deputy Managing Director of People’s Bank of China and Chairman of State Administration of Foreign Exchange, claimed the bond purchase was purely a market investment behavior, yet it is impossible to completely de-link economic and political considerations. That President Obama’s recent protectionism is serving some political interest is proof. Some U.S. bankers now see China’s holding a large amount of U.S. bonds as a threat to the United States. It’s time for China to use it as a political chip. This is an “international common practice.”

More and More Chinese Military Officers Talk Straight with the Media

Xinhua recently republished an article by Hong Kong based Asia Times suggesting the more and more high-ranking Chinese military officers are standing up and “talking straight.” Examples are comments made by Major General Zhu Chenghu, Major General Luo Yuan, and Senior Colonel Ke Chunqiao, after the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan. They all suggested that China should sell U.S. bonds, increase military spending and expand military deployment. Retired Rear Admiral Yin Zhuo also suggested expanding the reach of the Chinese Navy by doing things like establishing a Navy base in the Middle East. All these military comments covered by the media started 15 years ago with General Xiong Guangkai, who told U.S. Ambassador Charles Freeman regarding nuclear wars, “You’d better worry more about Los Angeles than Taipei.”
