Global Powers in the 21st Century

This chapter finds that China’s international policy is opposed to that of the United States in every aspect of global affairs. Several issues of human rights violations and international peacekeeping missions continue to be a concern for other global powers, despite China’s efforts to integrate flexibility into its domestic and international policies. The country is playing a key role in determining and influencing issues associated with global trade bodies, such as the World Trade Organization, and also interacts with other regional and European countries to present a united front against the United States’ policies that affect these countries directly or indirectly. China continues to be rigid in its approach to many international issues, as opposed to the United States’ liberal attitude toward such issues. The country has adopted the policy of opposing the United States in every aspect of global affairs despite having good trade and political relationships with it.

Keywords:   China, international policy, trade bodies, United States
