Stockholm, Oct. 23(ChinaEurope) — Chinese President Xi Jinping made a long speech today at the grand ceremony celebrating China’s 70th anniversary of Korean War and stressed peace and development.
In Chinese the ceremony was called China’s 70th anniversary of sending voluntary army to the Korean Peninsula when a civil war was fought and with the request of North Korea.
He used a lot of glamourous words to praise the Chinese army’s courage describing them as being heroic, persistant, undefeatable, flexible and not afraid of big power with advanced arms.
Even though he used a lot of inspiring words to describe such a great deeds China has done, and it seems to be the first time that Chinese leader summarised such a battle and gave such a high level appraisal of the war.
In fact, China was almost curfewed by the west after its liberation in 1949 and felt very isolated. Many historians studied why China dared to send volunteers to the Korean Peninsula even though China was very weak at that time.
With the disclosure of many secrets 50 years ago, historians got to know that China was forced to take such a bold decision by Mao Zedong to face the strong fleet led by American General MacArthur, the five star General in America.
China was really worried that the warfire would be burned to China’s northeast across the Yalu River. Thus China sent the voluntary troops to the Korean Peninsula. People have to say that the Chinese army was brave and experienced under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party.
Even though Xi used a long chapter to talk about this great history, what he really liked to express was China’s fundamental principles:
China will never become a hegemony but China is not afraid of hegemony. This principle has been repeated many times for many years. No matter how strong China becomes or how developed China becomes, China will not become a hegemony.
China’s military policy and strategy has always been defensive. China will never offend other countries, especially neighbours, but if any country offends China, China will take measure to defend itself if necessary. But China never expanded its land, typical exemple was the war with India in 1962, even though China defeated Indian army and chased them far into Indian border, Chinese army retreated back to where they were.
China will make unswerving or unremitting efforts to maintain the world peace, especially peace in Asia. It has been proved by history that China has been really a stable force in Asia. Without China’s great efforts of peace and development, no one knows what would have happened or how it will be like today.
With China’s efforts, east Asia has been very peaceful.
President Xi emphasized that China has its tradition and core value to love your neighbour be friendly with the neighbours. Good relations with the neighbours have always been prioritized.
Xi stressed again that the world is a destine shared community, thus should support each other, look for win-win solution and achieve a win-win result.
Xi also expressed that countries around the world should search for peace and development.
“The Chinese nation has always upheld the concept of “being kind and showing kindness to neighbours.” As a responsible major country, China adheres to the common values of peace, development, fairness, justice, democracy, and freedom of all mankind, adheres to the global governance concept of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, and unswervingly pursues a road of peaceful, open, cooperative and common development. As long as we adhere to the path of peaceful development and work with the people of all countries to promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind, we will surely be able to usher in a bright future of peace and development for mankind!” President Xi said in his inspiring speech.
Chinese Embassy Spokesperson against abuse of national security concept against Chinese enterprises
Chinese Embassy spokesperson published a news today urged Swedish government to abide by market principle of open and fair competition and review the relevant resolution on Chinese enterprises.
The spokesperson said some Swedish people cooked up the opinion about Huawei’s 5G technology. The so-called threat to national security is based on no evidence. Over the past years, Huawei and ZTE have actively cooperated with Swedish counterparts and contributed to Swedish relevant infrastructure construction without any threat to Swedish national security.
China resolutely opposed the abuse of national security and use that as a pretext to put pressure on Chinese enterprises. This action is against the market economy principle. China hopes that Sweden should not discriminate Chinese enterprises and continues to be open to Chinese enterprises.

Lanke Mountain was subsequently known as “the immortal land of weiqi”.

The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2020 was awarded jointly to Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson “for improvements to auction theory and inventions of new auction formats.”
This year’s Laureates, Paul Milgrom and Robert Wilson, have studied how auctions work. They have also used their insights to design new auction formats for goods and services that are difficult to sell in a traditional way, such as radio frequencies. Their discoveries have benefitted sellers, buyers and taxpayers around the world.
People have always sold things to the highest bidder, or bought them from whoever makes the cheapest offer. Nowadays, objects worth astronomical sums of money change hands every day in auctions, not only household objects, art and antiquities, but also securities, minerals and energy. Public procurements can also be conducted as auctions.
Using auction theory, researchers try to understand the outcomes of different rules for bidding and final prices, the auction format. The analysis is difficult, because bidders behave strategically, based on the available information. They take into consideration both what they know themselves and what they believe other bidders to know.
Robert Wilson developed the theory for auctions of objects with a common value – a value which is uncertain beforehand but, in the end, is the same for everyone. Examples include the future value of radio frequencies or the volume of minerals in a particular area. Wilson showed why rational bidders tend to place bids below their own best estimate of the common value: they are worried about the winner’s curse – that is, about paying too much and losing out.
Paul Milgrom formulated a more general theory of auctions that not only allows common values, but also private values that vary from bidder to bidder. He analysed the bidding strategies in a number of well-known auction formats, demonstrating that a format will give the seller higher expected revenue when bidders learn more about each other’s estimated values during bidding.
Over time, societies have allocated ever more complex objects among users, such as landing slots and radio frequencies. In response, Milgrom and Wilson invented new formats for auctioning off many interrelated objects simultaneously, on behalf of a seller motivated by broad societal benefit rather than maximal revenue. In 1994, the US authorities first used one of their auction formats to sell radio frequencies to telecom operators. Since then, many other countries have followed suit.
“This year’s Laureates in Economic Sciences started out with fundamental theory and later used their results in practical applications, which have spread globally. Their discoveries are of great benefit to society,” says Peter Fredriksson, chair of the Prize Committee.
