    Lovely speaks to China Daily about US techno-nationalism

    Professor Mary Lovely says it's "not true" that the US sees all its technological advantages being stolen by China. "We can see the majority of high-tech goods, defined by the Chinese, are still being exported by foreign-invested enterprises operating in China. And (we can see) the amazing amount of R&D which is being done jointly by foreign companies in China, as well as the productivity of Chinese scholars (operating internationally)," she says. Read more in the China Daily article "'Techno-nationalism' unlikely to succeed: experts."


    Lovely weighs in on EU-China investment agreement in SCMP

    "Given that many Chinese outward investors are state-owned or state-invested firms with access to state-owned banks, showing an absence of government subsidy could be difficult. Thus, the proposal alone can deter Chinese investment activity in Europe. In short, the pandemic has led to greater fear of Chinese unfair practices, not less," says Professor Mary Lovely. She was quoted in the South China Morning Post article "EU-China ties hinge on Germany’s political future as reign of Beijing ally Angela Merkel nears its end."


    Lovely comments on Barr's speech on pro-China policies in Wash Post

    Attorney General William P. Barr recently accused Beijing of pressuring American business leaders to promote pro-China policies in the United States, and suggested that U.S. executives who do so might be violating U.S. lobbying laws. Professor Mary Lovely says the speech "seems designed to show the world that the U.S. will interpret every action of multinational firms operating in China through a lens of bilateral hostility." She was interviewed for the Washington Post article "William Barr cites Disney, Apple in speech accusing U.S. companies of ‘kowtowing’ to China."


    Estevez-Abe explains Japan's success with coronavirus in Newsweek

    According to Margarita Estevez-Abe, one of the keys to Japan's success is being able to control the spread of infections in facilities for the elderly. "From an international comparison, it can be seen that Japan's nursing-related administration and nursing homes started corona countermeasures at a very early stage," she says. "Whether or not this group can be protected well is the basis of corona countermeasures." Her article, "Factors behind unknown success in Japan's corona countermeasures — Nursing facilities," was published in Newsweek (Japan).
