Guo Zhenyuan, a researcher with China Institute of International Studies, said China’s surrounding environment maintained a positive trend in 2011, and the positive trend had been developing during the 20 years since the end of the Cold War, especially the 10 years since the outbreak of financial crisis in Southeast Asia.

Xing Guangcheng, with the Research Center for Chinese Borderland History and Geography under Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said China-Russia relation is the most stable and richest relation among all the relations China has established with major powers in the world.

In 2011, new contents were added to China-Russia relations, which were enhanced to a comprehensive strategic partnership featuring equality, trust, mutual support, common prosperity and friendship from generation to generation. China should pay more attention to developing relations with Russia while carrying on the all-round opening-up.

Yuan Peng, Director of the American Studies Center, China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, said that China-U.S. relation seemed even subtler and more complex this year. President Hu Jintao’s visit to the United States has unveiled a partnership based on mutual respect, mutual benefit and win-win. It drew a semicolon for the China-U.S. relations over the past 30 years, and offered a new starting point for the relations in the next 30 years.

Li Xiangyang, Director of Asia-Pacific Research Institute under Academy of Social Sciences, emphasized that the verb should be “buy” rather than “relieve” while responding to the question “whether China should relieve Europe’s bonds”. Buying government bonds is a market behavior, and the buyer has the right to claim rights and interests. While the demand for capital decides whether the seller is willing to satisfy relevant requirements of the buyer. This issue will remain as an important problem for the China-Europe trade and economic relations in the coming year.
