The deal itself appears to be entirely ordinary, allowing for China to “make ship visits to, carry out logistical replenishment in, and have stopover and transition in … Continue reading No to a new Monroe Doctrine in the Pacific: Solomon Islands and China

Why China stands firm on dynamic zero-COVID policy

“China is probably the first and the only nation in the world to take the suspicion of ‘must have something sinister’ for being too good at its work in fighting covid. Why? Because China’s dynamic zero policy is running against the world accepted measures like ‘living with the virus’ or simply, do nothing. What is dynamic zero policy? To put it in a simple way, it is about rapid response and precise prevention and control. China saves people’s lives and help people to get back on a normal track by dynamic zero policy, which is doubted by Western media.

Agriculture and environment: China’s food security depends on self-reliance in seed production

The soybean plant is a native to China. Scientists believe that modern cultivated soybean was domesticated from wild soybean 6000–9000 years ago. There is historical evidence that domesticated soybean was introduced from north-eastern China 2500 to 3000 years ago, leading to the agricultural revolution in the Eastern Zhou Dynasty.  There is an abundance of archeological evidence that suggests the Yellow River basin as the origin of soybean domestication. However, biological evidence based on phylogenetic and clustering analyses, and using chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA, identifies the Yangtze region in Southern China as the most genetically diverse and the likely birthplace of soybean domestication. … Continue reading Agriculture and environment: China’s food security depends on self-reliance in seed production
