Providing foreign aid a way to survive (2)

(Global Times)

13:53, July 24, 2012

In an increasingly globalized world, dependence on imported resources is common. China's economy is dependent on energy resources and raw materials from other countries, but the way China feeds its development has been and will continue to be reciprocal. Domestic critics must realize that it will be unimaginable if one day there are no raw materials to feed the factories or no gas to fuel the millions of cars on the streets. This will cost China's newfound prosperity and eventually its people's livelihood.

As an emerging power, China meets unprecedented difficulties in the international political arena. Restrictions come from existent powers that seek to maintain the established world order. However, unlike previous powers who achieved their status by waging wars, China chooses to make friends. China must maintain good relations with developing countries so as to diversify the source of international assistance.

Providing aid to foreign countries isn't a cause of domestic problems. China has relatively big State assets, so providing foreign aid doesn't burden the government and won't affect domestic expenditure.

Authorities should provide greater transparency in the decision-making process of providing foreign aid and welcome public supervision. This is the best approach to quashing doubts.
