China is "a development miracle to be shared with the world" - but US/UK constitute the very extreme opposite!
Origin of Sinophobia: The 19th century Opium Wars were triggered by UK's imposition of the opium trade upon China. Lord Palmerston regarded the Chinese as uncivilized and suggested that the British must attack China to show up their superiority as well as to demonstrate what a "civilized" nation could do. The resulting concession of Hong Kong compromised China's territorial sovereignty. The appalling US/UK imperialism and colonialism is also the background to US dangerous contemporary meddling around China.
UN Resident Coordinator in China Siddharth Chatterjee, 20 March 2021:
What can African countries learn from China’s success in lifting millions out of poverty? UN Resident Coordinator in China Siddharth Chatterjee, formerly the Resident Coordinator in Kenya, considers how China’s admirable rise can provide valuable lessons for developing nations looking to improve livelihoods for their citizens.
Arriving in Guangzhou as a first-time visitor to China, I could not help but think of former U.S Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's description of what he saw as an underdeveloped provincial city in the 1980s.
As I gazed at the city's architecture and infrastructure from the airport and hotel during my 21-day quarantine period, I felt amazed as if my plane had taken me back to Dubai, which is another city that represents another iconic demonstration of dramatic transformation.
Looking at this city from this lens as I spent three weeks in isolation gave me a unique perspective through which to view this city's history while considering China's meteoric rise in recent decades.

In lifting nearly 800 million people from extreme poverty over the past four decades as well as the nearly 100 million poor rural citizens in the past eight years, China's accomplishments are simply remarkable.
The story of its development into the world's second-largest economy and its key takeaways
are of great significance, which we must share with other developing nations, especially those in Africa. My last posting was in Kenya.
Whether in manufacturing, its open market access, or its agricultural sectors, China's has a breadth of development experience worth learning from.
Consider this; over 40 per cent of Africa's agricultural produce is wasted every year due to post harvest loss .
Africa should be the breadbasket of the world, but yet it imports nearly US 60-70 billion dollars' worth of food.
In this Decade of Action for the SDGs, our direction is clear. We leave no one behind.
With these remaining challenges present as we embark on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the United Nations Country Team in China now stands in a unique position to cooperate with the Government of China and apply these successes in Africa and other nations in the Global South.
Working with a champion for multilateralism
Rather than shirk from international cooperation, China has shown its firm belief in the principles of multilateralism.
Despite the stresses that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on international cooperation, China has acted in tenacity and compassion, joining hands with other nations to face this global challenge.

Although many countries have a shameful past, only UK thinks it's a good idea to continue its tradition of appalling behavior
British Sinophobia hate rests on
megalomania delusion and functions as a Potemkin fasade against UK's own
historical guilt and debt to the world.
It wasn't only in Asia and Africa the Brits behaved like scumbags:
1854 British HMS Arrogant meddled, harassed, threatened and attacked peaceful Finland-Swedes in the southwest of Finland. Today the Brexit brits are equally arrogant and planning to live on weapons trade, militarism, anti-Human Rights sharia finance and money laundering etc financial cheating outside EU.
In other words UK, which already
has made a fool of itself because of its bad behavior (not keeping its
word in treaties, excusing terror and murder abroad by British military,
spying and meddling second only to US etc. etc.), will again become a
threat (as a US puppet) to world peace and itself.
British (whatever it is) has a long tradition of meddling, threatening and attacking around the world.
Industrialization started in England - and ended in England due to poor quality e.g. Jaguar (below average despite calling itself a "luxury brand") and Land Rover (constantly been among the worst in quality surveys).
So England continued its imperial ambitions by what was left from the empire namely the money hub called London.
Today England's closest ally (except for its master US) is the worst "country" in the world, namely the islamofascist, murders and war crimes committing Sunni islamic terrorism supporting Saudi dictator family. And London is the hub for Saudi islamofascist sharia finance and money laundering.
Klevius wonders, as many others also do, if it isn't time to leave evil Britishness and grow up and enter a friendlier world instead of trying to make money on evilness, militarism and destabilization?
