ollision of thought: Colleg 娱乐地图view cultural China

“Over the past 5,000 years, history has recorded the rise and fall of kingd

oms and dynasties. One hundred and fifty years ago, the West conquered the world but 娱乐地图女神会所

failed to conquer the hearts of Chinese. Now, Uncle Sam is seeking unilateralism by abandoning world ord

 娱乐地图女神会所ers since World War II, but they encountered resistance all over the world, especially from China,” said Wang Yao

heng, one of 12 contestants in the annual English Speech Contest held by the College of Liberal Arts & Law of Da

lian Minzu University on June 28. He made no secret of his admiration of Chinese culture. 娱乐地图女神会所

“After being informed of the speech contest, I was very excited about it. As a Chinese youth, I long for

an opportunity to express my love for the culture of our motherland. In addition, this is also a figh 娱乐地图

t back to those who turn a deaf ear to both affairs at home and abroad. I want to tell them that we college students are no

The contestants were ethnically diverse, and expressed their reverence to traditional Chinese culture and great pride

 娱乐地图for the social and economic achievements made by Chinese people in the past several decades. The recognition o

f Chinese cultural identity among young students from different ethnic groups reache

d a record high against the background of the global trade war and unilateralism triggered by the US. 娱乐地图

However, as to the role of Chinese traditional culture in the modern era, students’ views varied.

Some believe that Chinese culture is still as vibrant as it used t 娱乐地图女神会所

o be, while others see that Chinese culture needs to remember its traditions.

Tong Fei, a contestant, said that the absence of filial piety among members of the younger generation has become a crue 娱乐地图

l reality. For instance, the notion of “raising children for old age” is no longer accepted. Increasingly, more people no lo

nger believe that it is practical to wait for their children to take care of them in their old age. 娱乐地图女神会所

Contestant Shi Jia expressed her worries over Chinese cultural identity in the new era an

d appealed for revitalization of tradition. “Abandoning Chinese cultural identity is very dangerous. Only if we ke

ep our cultural identity, then we know who we are, and our nation will survive,” she said.

Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western attitude in C

hina. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and digest

their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.

“There’s no question that China is the most significant destinati

g with that comes a tremendous increase in demand for both passenger travel and freight mobility.”

Habib also applauded China’s interest in Washington’s agricultural products

such as apples and cherries, and specifically mentioned tourists and students from China.

With the current trade disputes between China and the US, however, Habib is seeing some frustration in his state.

The biggest obstacle to tobacco control in China is the powerful toba

cco industry, which is one of the biggest tax contributors to the government, he said.

Despite an increasing number of cities having local regulations on tobacco control,

national legislation is still lacking, due to causes including influence from the industry, he said.

“Only a few big cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen h

ave strict tobacco control regulations and law enforcement, but in most areas in China suc

h regulations are absent,” he said. “The prevalence of tobacco has caused serious health conseque

Chen Yulu, a vice-governor of the PBOC, also supported a “full-scale” opening of the financial sector. In the future, foreign invest

He said through the SAR government’s efforts and a ratio

onal discussion among the people of

Hong Kong, the city will eventually reach a consensus and any doubts over the issue will be dispelled.

Compadrazgo, a Spanish word that literally translates to

co-fatherhood”, is based on a kinship ritual that is formed after a child gets baptized into the Roman Catholic faith.

For the predominantly Catholic and close-knit Philippine society, the go

dfather (known as the padrino) is part of one’s extended family and is expected to h

elp and protect his godchild. The godchild is expected to respect and be loyal to the padrino.

Bapakism is derived from the Indonesian word for “father”. When used

in Indonesian business, bapakism demands great respect and obedience to one’s supe

rior. The manager in his role as the company’s bapak is expected to look after and care for his employees.

China has exercised great restraint and goodwill in

trying to maintain stable relations with the US,” he said.

Li Haidong, a professor of US studies at China Foreign Affairs Universi

ty, said Washington has pushed a hard line in relations with Beijing in recent years.

“The Taiwan question is much more complicated and nonnegotiable,” Li said.

“If the US side continues to misinterpret the one-­China policy, it will irreparably damage Sino­-US ties,” he warned.

The US Senate will have to vote on the act before it can become law. The time of the vote is unknown.

“The consensus among US officials is to be tough on China, and room for rational option

s is rapidly shrinking as overconfidence and rash actions become the new norm,” he said.
