HEADLINES AND EXCERPTS:

1. U.S.-China relations

"Sino-U.S. relations get new vitality"

The pro-PRC Chinese-language Macau Daily News remarked in an
editorial (9/11): "...The financial tsunami has increased the
desire of the U.S. administration to cooperate with China and has
brought more opportunities for Sino-U.S. economic cooperation.
During Wu Bangguo's visit, he told U.S. business circles that a
cooperative and win-win situation between Sino-U.S. economic and
trade relations has already been formed. Despite the impact of the
international financial crisis, this basic pattern has not changed
because Sino-U.S. relations remain economically complementary. Wu
also pointed out that Chinese and U.S. enterprises signed 41
contracts and agreements on investments and economic cooperation
this time. It shows that there are many opportunities for bilateral
cooperation. As long as the two countries can seize opportunities
amid crisis, they will attain many achievements. But Wu also
reminded the U.S. business sector that under the current situation,
both sides should follow the free trade principle to prevent any
form of trade protectionism.... Good political relations have
boosted the development of economic and trade relations. And the
improvement of economic and trade relations will, in turn, add
momentum for bilateral relations. This will bring tangible benefits
for the two countries. This is the 'lesson learned' from
developments in Sino-U.S. relations."

2. U.S. policy

"On the 8th anniversary of '9/11', U.S. policy returns to its
starting point"

The pro-PRC Chinese-language Ta Kung Pao wrote in a commentary
(9/11), "...Eight years have passed but the event seems to be still
in sight. The innocent Americans are like big boys who have great
grievances and who think that they can use their fists to seek
justice and find peace again. After eight years, the U.S. is deeply
mired and cannot get out. The White House changed its master. The
U.S. cannot but review and adjust its policies in the past eight
years. History has dramatically returned to its starting point
again.... The U.S. has to fully readjust Bush's unilateral policies
and readjust its foreign policies. It has to drop its airs and make
use of 'smart power' to start dialogue and cooperation. It attempts
to rely on the international community to tide over its difficulties
and to restore the U.S. image so as to maintain its declining
achievements. Though the U.S. has no other alternative, it is a
good beginning."
