Obama meets China’s leader-in-waiting:

US president Barack Obama has held his first meeting with the man who is expected to be leading China by the end of the year. Mr Obama told Chinese leader-in-waiting Xi Jinping that China must play fair in international trade, and vowed to keep pressing China to clean up its human rights record.

The Global Stagnation and China

China, now the world’s second largest economy after the United States, “is not immune” to the general economic slowdown, warns IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde. “Emerging Asia is also vulnerable to developments in the financial sector.”

So sharp were the IMF’s warnings, dovetailing with widespread fears of a sharp Chinese economic slowdown, that Lagarde was forced to reassure world business, declaring that stagnation was probably not imminent in China.

Nevertheless, concerns regarding the future of the Chinese economy are now widespread. Few informed economic observers believe that the current Chinese growth trend is sustainable; indeed, many believe that if China does not sharply alter course, it is headed toward a severe crisis. Stephen Roach, non-executive chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, argues that China’s export-led economy has recently experienced two warning shots: first the decline beginning in the United States following the Great Financial Crisis, and now the continuing problems in Europe. “China’s two largest export markets are in serious trouble and can no longer be counted on as reliable, sustainable sources of external demand.”

Baidu Wants the World — and It Wants It Now

Baidu revealed that it plans on introducing its search platform in a dozen different foreign languages. Products in Arabic and Thai debuted four months ago, and more will clearly follow.

Is it too late for Baidu? Companies have been successful outside of their home market. Russia’s Yandex has a presence in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus. Google may not be the leader in China, but it does lead in the world’s second most populous country: India.

China’s Internet growth challenges country’s political elite

2011 was also a year that saw the increasing social might of Chinese microblogs, Twitter-like engines of public opinion that often challenged the authority of state-sanctioned news. The number of microblog users quadrupled last year to nearly 250 million, the China Internet Network Information Center said in its recent report.

Known in China as weibo, microblogs enable users to post short messages with links that can then be read by subscribers. Their speed and scope creates difficulties for government censors, who have had more success blocking foreign websites including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter using filters, often called the Great Firewall of China.

Microblogs were instrumental last year in exposing government mishandling of a deadly high-speed rail collision in the eastern city of Wenzhou and alleged corruption in the southern village of Wukan.

How the West is wholly missing China’s geopolitical focus

China is capitalizing on vast space for influence to its west in Central Asia - not in Asia-Pacific as perceived by the West.

http://oilandglory.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/01/09/how_the_west_is_wholly_missing_chinas_geopolitical_focus

Case in point: China’s choice of Turkmen, Kazakh and Uzbek gas imports, over importing from Russia, has forced Russia’s Gazprom to reassess its regional strategy. While Gazprom’s price negotiations with Moscow have slogged on over the last five years…five years, the China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC) has cobbled together and upgraded largely existing transportation infrastructure to create the China-Central Asia gas pipeline. The resulting shift in the region’s energy geopolitics reflects China’s rise.

Opening up — China’s Answer to the Past and Future

While China is steering through spectacular yet complicated economic transformation during which ideas clash and wrangle, there is little debate that an open and market-based economy with respect for laws and rules are the cornerstone of its past miracle and the elixir of future prosperity. Interesting related article
