Lately China has remained in the news and not for being a worldwide power as much as for totally disregarding a world based upon International rules and laws. The most recent event was the shocking case of Meng Hongwei, the head of Interpol, being literally vanished for 12 days. It then came out that he travelled to China and was jailed for the normal criminal activity of taking allurements. The stunning fact is that China did this to a person leading a worldwide company, and few countries have actually said anything much about it.
A number of such arrests have actually been made because Xi Jinping came to power and not all of them were for corruption, as the state media likes to say.
It is rumoured that a million celebration members and others have been gotten rid of, or arrested or seriously disciplined, consisting of hundreds of generals, and a fantastic purge is taking place, resembling Mao s Cultural Revolution.
In addition, China s outright militarization of islands in the South China Sea threatening a major shipping path, is triggering even neighbouring nations to react with alarm.
Then there is China s insidious technique of making establishing nations indebtedto it by attracting them with substantial infrastructure jobs that are given to Chinese business at actually high rates, which bankrupts the nation and after that the Chinese
take valuable land and resources to pay back the debt. This has taken place in Africa, Asia and even in South America.
Make no error, China means to rule the world and are the new colonialists but in 2018, it is even more powerful than Colonialists remained in the 19 th Century. For one there were no Weapons of Mass damage, and China not only has them but has actually shared innovation with North Korea, Iran, Pakistan and will provide it to any nation that serves their purpose. Russia has no place near the clout that China has.
This is a nation that will prison a million Uighurs in 2018, just so that they can not practice their faith. This is a country that eliminated Tibetans by the hundreds and thousands and this is a country that will kill their own people by the thousands if
it serves their purpose. They performed in the Korean War where Mao used his individuals as canon fodder; they did it in the Great Leap Forward, where it is approximated that 30 million Chinese passed away of hunger and they brought their army in to squash a student presentation in 1989, eliminating thousands.
America hoped that with the markets opening up and China s admittance to the World Trade Organization, the Chinese would slowly end up being more politically open. But that was an absurd dream. America must know by now that dictatorships driven by ideology whether it is Communism or Islamism, are not
available to the guideline of law. Such dictatorships, can easily beat democracies as their media, their laws, their brainwashed millions understand no better and can not take on a repressive state that is willing to eliminate and send to prison millions.
Recently, Peter Navarro, Director of the White Home National Trade Council and workplace of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, explained how China has been attempting to
win the trade war versus the world. And I would say that India has actually also suffered.
He discussed six classifications of Economic Aggressiveness adopted by China:
Its industrial policy objectives were and are:
1. Safeguard Chinese markets from competitors and imports.
2. Expand China s share of international markets.
3. Secure and Control core natural resources worldwide such as copper in Chile and Cobalt in Congo.
4. Dominate conventional manufacturing markets.
5. Get key technologies and Intellectual Properties from developed countries, by requiring them to Make in China and share their technology.
6. Record Emerging high innovation industries that will drive future growth and development in the Defense Market.
This included very sophisticated cyberattacks on companies and defense establishments in the US and likewise buying companies in the US that were high tech. This was easy to do in a world that was adjoined with China in supply chains; as the major US companies along with Indian and European Corporations wanted earnings to increase and only thought of pleasing
investors, while Chinese business had no such compunctions, little oversight and anyhow had to please the government and the federal government owned banks in addition to the central leadership.The only way the countries of the world can beat such a hegemonic and
devious power is to treat it like South Africa was treated under the Apartheid Program.
I would start with India, as in the 1980s till 2000, we made high quality electrical goods such as fans, mixis, toasters, radios and a number of other such items with the very best of Indian and foreign business based in India and then we lost it, like America, for greed and profits by buying less expensive Chinese variations. We require to get this production back.
The truth is that the electronics made in China wear t last why must they-they were made to conserve money. In addition, both the United States and India lost their edge in production and tasks the US in luxury resilient electronic devices and India in everything from garments to electronics and pharmaceuticals that offered tasks and skills to our workers.
I am truly delighted that an American President is handling China for their thirty years of unfaithful by currency manipulation; stealing and copying Copyright rights; and by insisting till today at the WTO that they are a developing nation and require to have special considerations.
Nobody, particularly China, as the 2nd greatest economy worldwide can keep playing this video game at the WTO.
With nations worldwide finally acknowledging China s sneaky video games, India remains in a sweet spot to take over from China not just as the factory to the world however likewise in technology. We have the aptitude but we require the dedicated vision that China has actually had for over 50 years.
It is not far too late. I am persuaded democracies can win in the end video game however it requires not just Political Will but even states, the Centre and the administration being on the same page. I understand it is easier in a dictatorship like China, where one can move a million individuals at will and clean up cities of shanty towns in days. However I for one wish to do it by the guideline of law but it will be tough as it took 70 years for a Prime Minister to have the vision to say that we need to have
tidiness and toilets. I wonder why no one considered this for 70 years of an independent India?
But whatever it takes we need tasks and skills and India remains in a sweet area but we need to urgently provide rewards to our industries to be able to compete with Vietnam and other countries and make India a much better place to invest. Up until now, I have heard that foreign companies that were in China are moving to Vietnam
and other nations in the East. Definitely, we can offer them better terms and a supply chain nexus that together with domestic need and export rewards would be much more appealing. We have the skill; we have the ability and we have some of Asia s top corporations in India. We simply require the political will and our administration to work to make this happen and the states to compete
versus each other to be the very best in attracting organisation, which will cause tasks and growth.
