Mutual trust is a prerequisite for positive results in diplomacy. Inthe current crisis of the coronavirus that strikes all countries of the world, China has the opportunity to re-establish and strengthen mutual trust with all countries of the world, especially with western countries. The ‘Community of Human Destiny’ means sharing prosperity as well as overcoming difficulties together.
There are many things that can be done, including:
1. Put aside the “Wolf Warrior” thinking and action in the current crisis that all the countries are ‘at the most dangerous time’, a crisis that human society has never met before.
2. The Chinese Center for Disease Control (CDC) establishes a 24-hour per day working relationship with other CDCs in the different countries.
3. China as much as possible donates humanitarian medical/medicare equipment and materials to different countries around the world.
4. China immediately sends experienced doctors and nurses to the needed countries in the world, especially experienced nurses who are particularly in short supply in Western countries.
5. China’s advanced distance learning equipment can be donated to various countries who are in need.
6, At present, many countries have closed down their schools and school-age children have to be staying at home, which is becoming a social issue in all the countries in question. Some of the outstanding mathematics, physics and chemistry courses offered in China’s primary and secondary schools can be shared with foreign language subtitles with school children around the world. The crisis offers probably the best opportunity for online education companies to go global.
Many people think that Western society is so developed, supplies are so abundant, and management is so orderly. But this is just One Side of the Coin. As a matter of fact, except for Nordic Europe’s full coverage of medical care to every citizens, the more privatized countries are, the greater the challenge in the face of public health crises.
In economic management, the shortage of inventory and insufficient resources are a commonplace in the logistics chains of western countries, which is in effect the consequence of the double-edged sword of the zero inventory lean management model implemented by western public and corporate management in recent decades. This Lean Model is under normal situations simple and environmentally friendly, but it is easy to collapse in the crisis situations.
In today’s ‘Community of Human Destiny’, you exist within me, and I exist within you. If China does not feelgood the world can hardly feel good Likewise, if the world does not feel good, China can hardly feel good.
At present, there are some texts in the Chinese media that seem to be laughing at Western countries about how incompetent they are and how their systems are defective. This does not help to enhance mutual trust and this situation needs to be corrected.
Under the framework of the World Health Organization (WTO), let us respect the different anti-epidemic strategies and decisions made by different countries according to their own history, culture, social systems, and leadership styles.
China is currently still in the distress, but can help the people of the various countries in distress with heart just like we help our brothers and sisters. Don’t talk about who is more superior than who. Time is the sole criterion for testing truth.
During World War II, a refugee ship carrying several thousands of Jews did not get accepted by all countries except China. The Jews were well received by China who was also suffering at that time. This historical fact has, since then, been engraved in the Jewish nation’s friendly memory of the Chinese nation.
