With China-U.S. ties rapidly deteriorating, the South China Morning Post’s “China Briefing” columnist Wang Xiangwei mused in his latest article on Saturday what Beijing could do to resuscitate its tattered international reputation as it embarks on a new era in its relationship with Washington. 

“It is not in Beijing’s best interests to be in a situation of China vs the West,” argued Wang. So in an effort to dial down the tension he proposed two solutions that he thinks will help:

  • Get a daily email packed with the latest China-Africa news and analysis.
  • Read exclusive insights on the key trends shaping China-Africa relations.
  • Full access to the News Feed that provides daily updates on Chinese engagement in Africa and throughout the Global South.
