Opinion | With Laos and Vietnam, Beijing can boast its LV brand; without China, Philippines' growth is in doubt

The European brand name, LV brags a story of rags-to-riches. So do Laos and Vietnam (LV), the two developing countries, China's stable friends.

Opinion | 'Turbulence in the sky'

By now, every man and his dog knows about the rumble in the sky. Cathay Pacific flight attendants found themselves in the eye of a category-5 storm, caught disrespecting non-English speaking Mainland passengers.

Opinion | China issues loom large over G7 talks

China issues dominate the agenda of G7 summit, suggesting that China is a rising global power to be reckoned with.

Opinion | When the chips are down

Recently, China announced that it would be restricting chips made by the US firm Micron in its critical infrastructure projects, citing it as a "national security threat". In doing so, Beijing deliberately played the same card frequently used by the United States and its allies concerning its own technologies, most namely Huawei, where unfounded concerns relating to "national security" were used to exclude the telecommunications firm from participating in 5G networks, as well as the US has blacklisted thousands of other Chinese technology companies.

Watch This | Without an untainted reputation, how can one speak of re-election?

On April 25th, the current President of the U.S., Joe Biden, officially announced his intention to participate in the next presidential election, adding more highlights to the increasingly heated donkey-elephant battle. It is hard to imagine that this elderly man, who has experienced a tumultuous and challenging life, repeatedly falling short of the presidency, finally managed to defy public opinion and seize power from Donald Trump. Yet, he now faces tremendous competitive challenges once again.

Opinion | G7- A display of hypocrisy, vanity and elitism

For me personally, the G7 summit is up amongst the most insufferable political events of the year. That's because it is an exclusive club borne out of the United States, motivated by ideology, hegemony and thus, elitism, which it then uses to try and force its agenda on the rest of the world. Although it was originally conceived of the "world's seven largest economies" that is no longer a reality in practice, and it has thus become an "old guard" for how they believe the world ought to be. In the process, the US is attempting to tailor it into a distinctive "Anti-China" grouping.

Opinion | Child cruelty: Higher penalties necessary to protect the most vulnerable

Child abuse can take various forms and is not always easy to identify. Although physical abuse that causes injury is often prosecuted, those who psychologically abuse or molest a child can often get away with it. When, therefore, culprits are convicted, they should face condign punishment, and this was why the maximum penalty for child cruelty was raised — for offenses tried on indictment — from two to 10 years' imprisonment in 1995.

Opinion | US Senate's 'debt traps' torpedo Biden's planned visit to Papua New Guinea

If a man makes a promise but cannot deliver it, that is bad enough. This man happens to be the President of the United States, who has planned to visit Australia, and Papua New Guinea, "to counter China's growing influence" in the region that the US has long forgotten since World War ll.

Opinion | How should we view the exchange visits between British and HK principal officials?

The Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury, Christopher Hui, traveled to the United Kingdom and Belgium to meet political and business leaders. Later, Dominic Johnson, Minister of State for Commerce and Trade of the United Kingdom, visited Hong Kong to discuss issues such as bilateral trade and the removal of market barriers. The trip is the first visit by a high-ranking British official to Hong Kong in more than three years. Recently, Vice President Han Zheng was invited to attend the coronation of the British monarch.

Young Voices | American crisis: Devastating toll of 'fentanyl abuse' amidst political infighting

As is well known, the U.S. is the world's largest drug consumption market and the country most severely affected by drug-related harm. In recent years, with the rapid spread of fentanyl abuse, a large number of Americans have lost their lives as a result. According to data from the U.S. Congress, drug overdose deaths in the country rose from 63,632 in 2016 to 72,000 in 2017, with 29,000 deaths attributed to the abuse of fentanyl substances, representing a 45% increase compared to the previous year.

Opinion | America is sick, and needs therapy

It is getting more ludicrous by the day! The debt ceiling crisis looms over the US. But guess what? Its politicians are crying wolf, warning that this crisis is "playing into the hands of China". These days, in shambolic America, everything problematic has a China angle, including debt ceiling. They blame Chinese imports for their industrial decline. Soon, they will blame China for their constipation or erectile dysfunction. It's Sino-phobia gone mad!

Watch This | Gun violence - America's incurable disease

Over the weekend, a series of mass shootings in the United States left many people dead and injured. So far, there have been 202 mass shootings in the United States in 2023, an average of more than one a day, the most in the past decade.

Opinion | Contemptible report plumbs new depths in US' strong-arm geopolitics

The latest disgraceful Washington spasm of geopolitical bullying has emanated from the grandly titled Congressional-Executive Commission on China. In this case, the Congress and the executive government operate in tag-team mode, enhancing the geopolitical intimidation level. In a report vacuously titled "One City, Two Legal Systems", the commission recommended that the US government consider imposing sanctions on 29 judges — including Andrew Cheung Kui-nung, the chief judge of the Court of Final Appeal — who handle national security cases in Hong Kong.

Opinion | Hong Kong's business environment still ideal

Hong Kong is back on the world stage. A wide array of commercial, sports and art events have returned to the City of the Orient. Notwithstanding this, some cast doubts on the city's business environment. One of the concerns is whether and how the escalating political tensions or decoupling would hamper business operations. When facing these rumours, we should look at the issues rationally and pragmatically. Here are reasons why Hong Kong will continue to have an ideal business environment despite political risks.

Opinion | US defense chief is abominable - his gunboat 'Balikatan' has angered PLA

If asked to use three words to characterize President Biden – without thinking – I'd utter, "Rationality, Rationality, Rationality." And for his predecessor, Donald J. Trump, the words would be, "Poor Impulse Control," meaning that his sense of "control" is poor and impulsive.
