    The United States and China have benefited greatly from cooperation
in science, technology and innovation, a senior Chinese science
strategist said, lamenting the recent protectionist turn in the US.

    Hu Zhijian, president of the Chinese Academy of Science and
Technology for Development, said an objective appreciation of such
accomplishments would help ease recent technology and trade frictions
and reveal new grounds for win-win cooperation between the countries.

China and the US had been close partners in integrated research and
development for most of the past four decades, Hu said.

    From 2012 to 2015, the number of collaborative research projects
involving Chinese and US institutions increased by more than 80 percent,
according to a blue paper on China’s contribution to STI and global
governance published by the academy last year. Chinese and US scientists
had co-authored more than 55,000 papers by 2014.

    Moreover, scientists from both countries had cooperated on climate
change, clean energy, environmental protection, health, agriculture and
other fields related to sustainable development and people’s
livelihoods, the blue paper said.

    It added that Chinese enterprises had set up research and
development facilities in the US, while US companies had established
more than 800 R&D centers in China covering industries including
electronics, information technology, software, food manufacturing,
cosmetics, home furnishing and finance.

    “These interactions have created a flow of talent and know-how to
provide better products and services for the people of both countries
and the world,” Hu said.

    Over time, China and US had developed different but crucial
positions in the global industrial system and value chain, Hu said. The
US was at the top, given its leading position in STI and emerging
industries, while China was at the middle and lower end of the
industrial and value chain, but striving to climb up.

    Like Japan, Singapore, South Korea and other countries before it,
China was improving its people’s living standards through education,
trade, infrastructure investment and technologies.

    “These feats mean China will inevitably close its gap with developed
countries,” Hu said. “But it does not mean China wants to or is capable
of challenging the US’s global dominance.”

    Historically, China’s technological rise was not an issue that
troubled the US, he said, because the US maintained its lead role by
attracting the best talent from around the world to fuel its STI efforts

  • pushing new frontiers, making new products and climbing up the
    industrial value chain.

   “However, STI development is an arduous process, and the US has grown
increasingly anxious that its lead is being eroded,” Hu said. “So
instead of staying ahead via continued innovation, it has turned
protectionist toward China and other developing countries and used
unconventional means, from tariffs to travel restrictions, in the hope
of keeping them behind.”

    At the same time, the US was plagued by many domestic issues,
ranging from growing social inequality to rising corporate influence,
and ordinary US people, notably those from Midwestern states, felt
disenfranchised by globalization and technological progress because “the
fruits of these trends have been mostly reaped by the elites from
coastal states”.

    “When internal issues become too difficult to handle, politicians
often rely on scapegoating to divert public frustration and attract
support, especially during election years,” Hu said.

    “But the US public must realize that blaming China and other
countries for its economic, social and existential woes will not solve
its issues, it will only exacerbate them to disastrous levels for all.”

    Despite the US’s effort to disconnect with China, Hu said full
detachment was unlikely in the long run because it would not be in the
interests of either country.

    “China’s market and its pivotal role in the global industrial chain
are too important for US companies to give up,” he said.

    In addition, science requires the exchange of ideas and
collaboration to progress. When faced with common challenges, from
climate change to changing ethical landscapes in artificial intelligence
and biosciences, “it will require a global joint effort to find the best
solution to tackle these emerging issues,” Hu said.

    “Dividing the scientific community and the world, as some
politicians are implying, is dangerous and counterintuitive to
maximizing the potential of science and its benefit for the people,” he

    Given the unpredictability of the current US administration, China
needs to “keep a rational, objective outlook and focus on improving its
own capability at its own pace”, he said. “We must have the confidence
and patience to get through turbulent times.”

Treaty of Peace and Friendship.

He called on both countries to “adhere to the various principles
affirmed in the four political documents, stick to the general direction
of peace and friendship, continue their joint efforts in mutual
beneficial cooperation and further develop bilateral ties.”

BEIJING, Oct. 26 (Xinhua) — President Xi Jinping met with Japanese
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Beijing Friday, calling on both sides to
cherish the good momentum in bilateral ties.

“As China continues its reform and opens its door even wider to the
world, more opportunities have emerged in China’s cooperation with
countries including Japan,” Xi told Abe. “Japan is welcome to
participate in China’s progress in the new era.”

The Japanese prime minister called on both sides to manage differences
properly and make joint efforts to maintain regional stability and

The two countries should contribute to regional and international peace,
as well as free trade, he suggested.

“It is hoped that through this visit, the two sides will usher in a new
era when ‘competition is transformed into coordination,'” Abe said.

“China and Japan should interact more actively in the security area,
foster constructive security relations, and pursue the path of peace and
development for regional peace and stability,” Xi said.

The Chinese president also called for tapping the potential of
higher-level cooperation.

The two sides should effectively implement the consensus that they are
partners rather than mutual threats, facilitate positive interactions,
and deepen mutual political trust, Xi said.

Abe voiced his pleasure at paying an official visit to China at the
“important moment” of the 40th anniversary of the signing of the treaty.

“The treaty, signed by the elder generation of leaders of both
countries, established a general direction of lasting peace, friendship
between the two countries in the form of law, and provided solid support
for both sides to conduct mutual beneficial cooperation, achieve common
development, and properly deal with sensitive historical issues and the
Taiwan issue,” Xi said. “With concerted efforts by both sides,
China-Japan ties are back on track and gaining positive momentum. This
is worth cherishing.”
