Asia braces for Trump

The White House confirms: “On November 8, President Trump will arrive in Beijing, China, for a series of bilateral, commercial, and cultural events, including meetings with President Xi Jinping.”

  • In Foreign Policy, Michael J. Green — a senior National Security Council official during the George W. Bush administration — argues (paywall) that America’s allies on Asia await Trump’s visit with trepidation, as they worry about “American drift and Chinese expansion.”
  • Also in Foreign Policy, an article (paywall) titled “Washington has a bad case of China ADHD” says that “China is the biggest threat to the U.S.-led global order,” but that America cannot focus on the challenge.
  • Reuters says that “China is leaving nothing to chance during next week’s visit by U.S. President Donald Trump, and will likely fortify the value of the yuan” to insulate against Trumpist criticism that Beijing keeps the value of its currency artificially low.

Houston: We have a podcast

If you’re in Houston, Texas, on November 9 at 7 p.m., please come to Tiffany and Co. for a live Sinica Podcast. Kaiser Kuo will interview former NASA astronaut and International Space Station commander Leroy Chiao on the state of the Chinese and American space programs.

China in the world

Reporting and views on China from around the world:

  • Australia: The antipodean ABC says that a Chinese state-owned company might bankroll a coal mine in Australia owned by Indian conglomerate Adani.
  • India: The Economic Times of India reports that China once again blocked a move by the U.S., India, and other countries to list the Pakistan resident Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN. China’s ongoing reluctance to label Azhar is seen as a sop to Pakistan, which is often called China’s only “all-weather friend.”
  • Bhutan and India: The Bhutanese king has visited India. The Economic Times says that his trip is “a re-affirmation of India-Bhutan ties amid relentless pressure by Beijing to make inroads into Bhutan.”
  • Uganda: New Vision reports on the difficulties resident Chinese have in communicating in rural parts of the East African country.
