Study Times: Establishing National Image from the Inside

Study Times, a newspaper by CCP Central Party School, recently published an article on a point made by Wang Jisi, Dean of the College of International Relations, Beijing University. Wang suggested that establishing a nation’s image is an exercise for self molding instead of something set by other people.

Wang believes the media in the West demonize everybody, not just China. That’s the nature of Western media. Reports on China represent only a very small percentage of the coverage in the West. A nation full of satisfied citizens will automatically have a good international image. In recent years, a large number of Chinese people have ignored indexes reflecting happiness and social justice. Too many people have focused on GDP, which does not have a direct relationship to the quality of people’s lives. China should bravely face the mistakes made in the past.
