China is in the ‘news’. But it is not always well informed news. In addition much of our news and views about China are shaped in Washington and London.We don’t really know much about China, our major trading partner by far and the rapidly rising power in our region. This is occurring as US influence is declining.
Tomorrow Jocelyn Chey will introduce a twelve part series,What,Why and How about China.The twelve parts will be written by informed Australian experts.
The series will cover Chinese national identity, Border relations,The diaspora, Soft and hard power,Role of the Communist Party,Technology and Innovation,Social Control, Environmental Policies,Religion, History and Tradition,Social Change and Health policies
