GLM impacts the WorldExcerpt from:Understanding China, at the English Speaker’s Union.” Today, I have entitled my speech as Understanding China.  According to Global Language Monitor, an American research body following the global media reporting, on its list of the Top News Stories of the Decade, the rise of China came as the first, even well ahead of 9/11 and the war in Iraq.  But I think 2009 will probably be remembered in our history, as China’s transition into playing a major role in the world..Here in London, I could clearly sense China’s emergence onto the world stage.  During the G20 London Summit, the close cooperation between China, US, UK and other countries shows that China has come to the centre stage of addressing global issues…– Fu Ying, Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom at the English Speakers Union 12/10/09

Excerpt from:On Equal Terms: Redefining China’s Relationship with America and the West (Wiley)
