What are real challenges for China? (2)

(People's Daily Online)

08:09, August 02, 2012

Once the United States and European countries overcome the difficulties to complete a new round of institutional reform, in addition to influences of a new round of technological revolution and industrial revolution, they will become a major shock in China’s period of strategic opportunities.

In the next three to five years, the shift of U.S. strategies back to Asia Pacific attaches importance to realization of US-dominated rebalance in Asia Pacific, rather than comprehensive confrontation with China, and to a new round of Asia-Pacific strategic layout by means of sovereign disputes between China and relevant nations, instead of US involvement in military conflict with China.

In this stage, the United States will make greater use of non-military means to delay or interfere with China's rise and reap strategic benefits in attempt to achieve the revival of national strength and consolidate its hegemonic position.

Thus, China should change the traditional way of thinking and strategic opinions to turn the focus of national defense from solution of partial external military conflict risks to rebuilding of the comprehensive internal institutional mechanism. It determines whether China will successfully cope with current strategic challenges once again.
