Not surprisingly, China has negative views from this week’s Pew Research Center survey of 14 countries with advanced economies. Half of them reached historic heights. Nor did the majority of people in this survey say that they think China acted to corrode coronovirus. Or even President Xi Jinping reacted poorly among those who responded.
After all it is china Where the epidemic started. Its government thwarted the initial response to the pathogens, then mitigated the error with aggressive “wolf warriors” diplomacy, while thousands died in Europe and then the US.
No, the real surprise from the global survey is that the only country to score more adversely than China was – by a wide margin – the US
This week in the new economy
Of the countries polled in Asia, Europe and North America, a destination of 61% said China thwarted the Kovid-19 challenge, while 84% of the US felt the world was suffering from coronovirus deaths and infections. Leads to, messes up.
Meanwhile, Xi lacks confidence Since a similar survey last year, leaping into double digits has risen to record levels in every country except Spain and Japan (negative opinions about its vast neighbor in Japan have increased over the years). A total of 78% of those surveyed said they had little or no confidence in the Chinese president to do the right thing about world affairs.
But US President Donald Trump Worse reviews are found. For example, in Germany, 78% said they had no faith in Xi — but altogether 89% said the same about Trump.
What is particularly shocking is that every one of the countries polled is either an allied ally or a regular ally for the US (China has no formal allies, unless you count Pakistan and North Korea Do.) In these countries – democratic all-republicans are held. In less respect than the head of increasingly authoritarian China.
To rub it off, the survey was conducted in a year when much of the world was admitted to China’s human rights rights in Xinjiang, its restrictive ban on civil liberties in Hong Kong And its efforts to intimidate Taiwan (whose epidemic response is exemplary). Yet the world’s most advanced economies still held intense views about America.
Now the question is whether the US and China can withdraw from this global opprobrium.
To be sure, the survey did not cover emerging economies, where China is likely to be more likely to be in position. But China certainly wants respect from other top powers in the world, at least it does not provide any substance to advance Xi’s claim.Great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. “Beijing wants to show a domestic audience that the richest countries on earth recognize the country’s achievements, even if they do not always support its economic model. And this requires capital and technology from these countries, as well as their cooperation on global issues.
So far, at least, after a year of self-inflicted diplomatic failures, there is no sign of any dispute with Beijing. Nationalist Global Times Pew’s survey called it “the inevitable result of reinforcing the persistent implicit bias against China under the anti-China statement of Western opinion”. America “trampled” its ally “China said, “and” white out their inability to handle the deadly virus, “the publication said.
On the other hand, democracies have the ability to self-improve (this right system is often their greatest strength.) American voters. It will soon pass judgment on an administration in the world, which believes that America’s most valuable diplomatic asset – the trust of its friends. A single election, whatever the outcome, however, will not flip the world opinion. Faith, once betrayed, takes a long time to rebuild.
But the Pew poll supports the argument of a long list of former US officials, think-tank analysts and others who say US foreign policy under President Joe Biden, if he is elected, starts him at home needed. America’s first step in rebuilding global relations Chronic domestic economic and social inequalities bare the epidemic.
“When a democratic America overcomes problems, The country shines as a beacon, ”writes Robert Zolik, a consultant for Bloomberg New Economy.
The second step would be to rebuild relations with their partners. Then and only then The US is in a position to pressurize China on trade, market access and other issues that greatly concern the rest of the world.
If Beijing, as illustrated Global Times Reacting to the Pew survey, continuing to blame others for his reputation, Biden’s task will be so simple.
