Look for all three articles – by Wendy Cutler https://tinyurl.com/y8fdeasb, Zheng Yongnian https://tinyurl.com/y8obormf, and Nathan Gardels https://tinyurl.com/yd7ngck8, around the theme of technological competition between China and the U.S.  All three pieces are important.

After several previous participations, China “disinvited” from participation in this year’s US-organized RIMPAC naval exercise in Hawaii.  Militarization of South China Sea islets cited as main cause.  A significant symbolic step backward, but so was the landing of heavy bombers on China’s airfield on Woody Island.

An amazing cornucopia of explorable images and commentaries – on everything “artistic and cultural,” but in this case on China in myriad ways.

https://www.chinalawblog.com/ 

Good advice on the perils of foreigners working illegally in China, and of not making sure that a foreigner’s would-be employer is acting legally in hiring the foreigner.  Teaching English the most common case in point.

The Xiongan New Area mega-city project near Beijing: monument to Xi Jinping’s vision of state-driven, advanced technology-enabled, urban development.  This writer has his doubts.

What foreign startups and small business are up against: the “free look” method of gaining foreign companies’ lifeblood IP without ever investing a cent.
