What they say


“It is natural and right for China to attach great importance to 6G research.

By NewsChina Updated Sept.1

It is natural and right for China to attach great importance to 6G research. However, we must also be soberly aware that we cannot stop in-depth research into 6G demands or long-term research into disruptive and innovative technology because of immediate competition. If we only care about getting ahead of foreign competitors, we’ll lose touch with market demand and be in a strategically passive position. We need to have the willpower to not be swayed by the outside world. At the same time, we need to insist on openness and cooperation.”  

Wu Hequan, Scholar at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, writing for NewsChina’s Chinese edition in mid-June

“The US’ s ‘one-China policy’ was originally straightforward, using only the three China-US joint communiqués as the attributive words. But later more attributive words began to emerge, and the ‘Taiwan Relations Act’ and ‘Six Assurances to Taiwan’ were successively added. Both the ‘Taiwan Relations Act’ and the ‘Six Assurances to Taiwan’ are unilaterally concocted by the US side, not the consensus between China and the United States. China has resolutely opposed and refused to recognize them from the very beginning.”

“Along with industrial upgrading, China has shifted from a big exporter of lower-end goods to that of intermediate goods. Given its current state of manufacturing, the US cannot fully adapt to the shift. As a result, the biggest destination of China’s exports of intermediate goods is not the US, but rather ASEAN members and other countries, which means our dependence on the American market is declining.”
