So for China, indeed China currency is the most trustworthy as it's under its control unlike other currencies which are not under China's control.
The unique role China as the world Factory means the security of the value of its currency earned abroad is much important unlike most other customer countries.
So for the sake of financial security, China must immediately impose the export payment either in China currency or commodities including gold, etc.
Or else with the financial turbulence coming soon, China as the world factory should be the greatest loser among all countries.
All of the unfair tariffs imposed under Trump should also be demanded to be removed immediately or else China should immediately impose gold to be used in trading between China and US immediately instead of the US dollar.
Suu Kyi, the current Myanmar government leader is the daughter of the leader and founder of the Myanmar military in Japan.
The Myanmar military has been targeting China for troubles instead of other foreign investors such as Japan, etc.
So investments as well as people from China were deliberately targeted against by the Myanmar military and many Chinese were arrested recently who were transferred to the police station by the troublemaker Myanmar military deliberately.
Not only the Myitsone dam was cancelled but also the New Yangon city project was cancelled to be divided into many small projects recently, etc.
Myitsone dam would help Myanmar a lot as Myanmar lacks electricity for its development but China should rather demand Myanmar to pay for compensation to end the almost 10 years-long suspended project because Myanmar is not worthy of China's help at all.
Dividing the new Yangon city project by the usual untrustworthy Myanmar government is also a good chance for China to cancel the project too as Myanmar is not worthy of China's help as well as the foundation of the Dala area where the new city would be built has been known to be frequently flooded too and it's also well known to be unfit for a city building since ancient time so sooner or later most new buildings would collapse one after another due to it unreliable very soft soil.
Recently the extreme greedy Myanmar raised the rice export duty to 52% so even Thailand immediately stopped importing rice from Myanmar.
Myanmar is a unreliable, crooked opportunist so China should keep its distance from Myanmar or else Chinese people would suffer of an unnecessary higher price.
China have a vast land so should be well utilized to produce rice, cattle, etc to not only sufficiently support all population in China but also should be able to export extra rice, cattle, etc to neighbouring countries cheaply so no country suffers from crooked opportunists such as from Myanmar, Vietnam, etc anymore.
China wasted 30 billions US dollar purchasing Myanmar Jade annually but Myanmar Jade emerged only after 1800 AD in China and it's totally different to the traditional Chinese Jade which emerged about 2000 years ago so Myanmar Jade has no value comparing to the traditional Chinese Jade.
So China have been cheated over 200 years of the fake Jade from Myanmar and also wasted over hundreds of billions of US dollar so far so it is time to inform all Chinese of the findings of the differences between the traditional Chinese Jade and the fake Jade from Myanmar and immediately bans the fake Jade from Myanmar from using in China.
Myanmar has been betraying China repeatedly so China should stop supporting Myanmar in UN and also stop supporting Myanmar by not purchasing gas, etc from Myanmar.
Anyway, China should keep its distance from the traitor Myanmar for good because nothing good would come out of the relationship with the traitor Myanmar.
During WW2, before entering Nanjing city in China, Japanese liar dropped leaflets from planes promising not to harm civilian but upon entering the city, Japanese liar didn't keep its promise and committed the greatest war crime far worse than what Hitler did in concentration camps against jews.
Jews were just slaughtered without being humiliated by Hitler but Chinese in Nanjing were humiliated without dignity such as being raped, tortured for pleasure of the Japanese liar, etc beyond humane nature before being slaughtered.
Thanks to the useless Chinese governments then and now that Japanese liar didn't have to compensate for all the atrocities they committed then though the then Chinese government emerged as a winner against the then Japanese liar after WW2.
History is repeating and see what happened after the Ming dynasty was being attempted to be invaded by the Japanese liar before and the result is that the Ming dynasty collapsed and if the Ming dynasty took revenge against the action of Japanese invasion then, history might be different now and the Ming dynasty might exist until today and all Japan islands might be a part of China now with no Japanese descendants left behind just like what the strongman Qianlong emperor did to the Dzungar Genocide during the Qing dynasty.
Myanmar alleges 'one foreign country' arming insurgent groups on its territory
Arakan Army, AA has been winning wars against the traitor Myanmar military and occupying more and more territories and many military outposts from the traitor Myanmar military unlike never seen before since the military coup in 1962.
Victories from the Arakan Army, AA are inspiring others to the extent of most armies from other races who have been discriminated unfairly as well as being robbed of their rightful territoris and resources unfairly by the traitor Myanmar military, want to unite together to fight for decisive wars to collapse the traitor Myanmar military for good.
According to the communist doctrine, the united force by all other races in Myanmar means it's the people's war and the outcome of the people's war in Myanmar should be easily predictable as it happened once before in China too which culminated in 1949.
Anyway, Myanmar is not worthy of China's BRI investments since the Myitsone hydropower plant has been deliberately cancelled unfairly 9 years ago without compensation paid so far so China, Hong Kong, etc should withdraw all of its investments altogether from Myanmar immediately for good to leave Myanmar where it's of no much different to a beggar country until now under the thievery and unfair manipulation of the traitor Myanmar military.
Thanks also partly to India which has been shamelessly spreading lies to countries such as Nepal, Myanmar, etc since the China-India Border conflict.
Nepal government have recently officially outright rejected the lies spred by India of regarding the China encroachment upon Nepal's territory.
However, the traitor Myanmar military which was founded in Japan during WW2 in order to eliminate China, deliberately accepted the lies of India as the truth though being aware of the lies originated from India.
India is a very difficult nation to deal with because India deliberately spreads lies shamelessly like an animal against its enemies such as Pakistan, China, Nepal, etc so China have to mentally prepare to encounter more lies spred by India in the future.
China, Nepal and Pakistan might also have to come up with a master plan sooner or later to shut up the spreading of the lies of India once and for all for good.
‘Conspiracy, people trying to topple me’: Nepal’s PM accuses India after border map row
Meetings in India to topple my govt., says Nepal PM K.P. Oli
In Nepal's case, India has been clearly not only interfering in the internal matter of Nepal but also attempting to topple the Oli's government in 15 days outrageously.
Toppling the Oli's government is not in the interest of China because after toppling the Oli's government, there would emerge a pro-India government in Nepal which might not only harm the interest of China but also might follow the lead of India against China.
According to the foreign policy of China, foreign country should not interfere in the internal matter of other country.
Furthermore, PM Oli from Nepal is a true friend of China so China should help the government of Oli from being interfered in the intention of toppling by the territory thief India.
Not only Nepal but also China are victims of the territory thief India.
After toppling the Oli's government, China would be the next target of India.
So China urgently need to protect and stand with other victims such as the Oli's government, etc together and demand justice to return the rightful territory of Nepal, etc from the territory thief India.
For an another option is to shame India internationally by letting UN handle the matter of territories stolen by India, and then the truth would be revealed in the light and the whole world would realize the true colors of India which is merely a dishonest thief, the territory thief upon Nepal, etc and then no country would no longer want to associate with the very dishonest thief India from then on.
Especially in the case of Nepal which lent territory to facilitate the loser India in kindness during the 1962 China-India war but instead of returning Nepal's rightful territory, India shamelessly swallowed the 1962 borrowed territory from Nepal and even already incorporated Nepal's rightful territory in the lastest India's map shamelessly.
China was a complete winner in the 1962 China-India war but China didn't take an inch of India's rightful territory then but it's incredible for the loser India taking advantage of the helping hand from Nepal by swallowing Nepal's territory instead of returning kindness so India is the most morally corrupted and unreliable country in the world.
Moscow: Rajnath Singh holds talks with Myanmar Military Chief
Myanmar Pulls Swiss Firm to Scrutinize China’s BRI Project
It should be time to stop feeding the ungrateful traitor Myanmar military by stop purchasing gas from Myanmar, no tourism support, etc until the traitor Myanmar military is completely starved and ragged.
Historically the traitor Myanmar military was helped founded by Japan during WW2 in order to cut off the last remaining supply line from Myanmar to China so the purpose of the traitor Myanmar military founding was to eradicate China during WW2.
However, China was fortunate not being terminated by the combined force of Japan and the traitor Myanmar military during WW2, thanks to the famous KMT Ma general who famously defeated most wars in Myanmar to the extent of Japan being kicked out of Myanmar consequently (with the master Japan gone, its accomplice traitor Myanmar military should have been gone too then but the traitor Myanmar military still shamelessly survives until today) but the cemetery of the KMT martyrs who sacrificed to defeat both Japan and traitor Myanmar military in Myanmar during WW2 was betrayed by the traitor Myanmar military again out of disrespect by completely destroying the whole cemetery of the whole KMT martyrs after WW2, whereas the insignificant cemetery of few European soldiers during WW2 still remains today.
The traitor Myanmar military has been betraying and showing disrespect to China since its founding in Japan unlike the last dynasty of Myanmar kingdom where a tribute was respectfully presented to China annually.
So China should not forget the dangerous aspiration of the traitor Myanmar military which was founded by the Japan butcher king during WW2 in order to eradicate China.
Hong Kong is not a danger to China but breaking the treaty invites more enemies from countries under the influence of UK such as Australia, few European countries, etc.
Patience is what China need now for Hong Kong until 2047 where is the end of treaty and until then China should close the border where there are bunches of people like Ho Chi Minh traitor, descendants of Vietnamese dogs in Hong Kong. 2047 should also be the year Vietnam is recovered under China's rule where Vietnam had been an integrity part of Chinese territory for thousand of years in ancient time.
Liars like India and Trump should be the priority that China should handle urgently now.
The most urgent matter is to have Trump fail in his re-election race at the end of this year at all cost and then on next year settle the issue of territory thief of the most shameless India which has already confiscated the whole Sikkim kingdom, part of Nepal, part of China's territory of Tibet region, part of Pakistan's territory of Bangladesh region where the thief India even helped found a nation to be confiscated later following the similar swallowing scheme of the Sikkim kingdom. China have much benefit by liberating territories confiscated by India on next year so that Bangladesh would be restored under the Pakistan's rule so that China would have access to the Indian ocean through Pakistan's Bangladesh region without relying on the Myanmar, the most unreliable traitor where China's investments of billions of dollars were destroyed one after another without compensation being paid such as the Myitsone hydropower plant which has been cancelled since 2011 and the then (the former) second ranked in minister of electricity said in a YouTube video that Myanmar was not obligated to pay any compensation for the cancellation of the Myitsone hydropower plant. 40% of foreign debt of Myanmar is coming from China and the amount is about 4 billions dollar and the dishonest Myanmar frequently released news of the idea of cancelling the China debt so China should stop investment in the shameless beggar country called Myanmar altogether where discrimination against China is not feasible and all investments in Myanmar is not safe and Myanmar Jade should be banned immediately in China, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong to prevent waste of billion of dollar annually where Myanmar Jade has no value comparing to the traditional Chinese Jade. China as a permanent member of UN should act responsibly by stop selling weapons to the shameless terrorist military of Myanmar government ruled by the most corrupt Burma race which has been committing war crimes endlessly in Myanmar until now against almost all the other races such as Rakhine, Shan, Rohingya, Kachin, Kayin, etc.
People in Taiwan have lost many right due to China's aggression against Taiwan so People in Taiwan didn't get the Thailand visa waiver just like the rest of four Asian tigers such as Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea though Taiwan itself is one of the four Asian tigers and so on. People in Taiwan are also Chinese people so China should not harm the interest of people in Taiwan even if China couldn't help people in Taiwan.
Taiwan is safe as it's ruled by people descended from Chinese which share the pure blood of Chinese in mainland China unlike mixed blood in Hong Kong so China shouldn't bother so much about Taiwan which is not harmful to China. Patience and taking care of the interest of people in Taiwan is the sacrifice China need until peaceful unification arrives at the desire of the people in Taiwan.
People in Taiwan are not allowed to stay at most of the cheap hotels in China and people in Taiwan are not foreigner because we are brother and sister after all from the very beginning and would not be the last either because blood is thicker than water so people in Taiwan should be allowed to stay at any hotel they would like to stay in China without restriction.
Food inflation in China is over 14% comparing to last year and it's absolutely unacceptable comparing to countries such as US, etc where food deflation kicks in during this difficult time so food is getting cheaper in US, etc.
Millions of Chinese lost jobs recently due to the coronavirus epidemic and have no income so as a responsible leader, Mr. Xi should be merciful by helping out poor Chinese people by kicking in food deflation to alleviate their living cost with their tiny saving.
If Mr.Xi were not capable to help out Chinese people with the problem of yearlong lingering food inflation, even during this epidemic, he should immediately contemplate the impact of his current role on the Chinese people that would influence his future whether Chinese people would embrace him or not consequently in the future and make a right decision the soonest possible where hopefully the Chinese people should be treated well and fairly with food deflation kicking in immediately to restore the food price prior to 2015.
Pork should be banned for sale in China for the sake of justice and fairness unless neither the swine virus couldn't be eliminated nor the pork price couldn't be restored to the year before 2015.
Many millions of Chinese also lost jobs due to the virus recently, China can't afford to lose the factories so China should create new regions either in Xinjiang, Tibet, etc where the salary should not be higher than neither India nor Vietnam and persuade all factories which are going to shift to either India or Vietnam to rather move to new regions in China where salary is lower and also China should support the factory moving fee so as to retain jobs in China in order to help all millions Chinese who lost jobs recently due to the virus.
The expense in the region should also be reflected accordingly to be as cheap as Vietnam or India so even with the much lower salary, people working in the new region should be content and feel no burden with the living cost.
In the meantime, China must find a way to survive as if US already collapsed and gone.
Is WTO dead already? If not, China must use the most appropriate WTO channel to beat Trump and then Trump has more to suffer than China now consequently as the foolish actor Trump is not a match to WTO which is backed almost by the whole world.
Time to act fast in a appropriate manner and no sooner the US government led by joker Trump would be shut down soon just like before in Obama's era.
Inflation problem in China too due to pork price skyrocketing must be handled immediately, deflection should kick in according to the current not-very-good situation in China to alleviate the burden of Chinese and even if pork price were out of control, chicken price can be reduced as much as half with China's mighty technologies which shall certainly remove the burden of Chinese for content and happy living and also remove the inflation.
