According to a report in the Global Times (Chinese Edition) January 4, China has a leading role in many mainstream media's outlook for 2010.

The past decade proved that the 500 years of prosperity of the West is gradually receding. And who is going to be the focus of the next century? China is the top of the list. That's according to an article named "China's success secret: the world turning to the East" in the German Financial Times.

Germany's Die Welt said on January 2 in a report called "China to surpass the West in 2020 at the latest" that the era of Western domination has ended. In 2010, only China and the United States can demonstrate their roles.

Without a doubt, China's development is considered to be a great issue by many western media. A report "China to make EU face challenges" in the French Le Figaro states that the most urgent task the European Union faces is how to deal with its China relations; this is a touchstone for the EU that can not be avoided.

A report in the Observer said that China in 2010 will have problems with the United Kingdom and the European Union and that the UK should be "tougher" and "being good at anything that can mobilize the resources to bargain with China" as well as "united with the EU as a whole" to stand alongside the increasingly powerful China".
