As we know, in this past season, China has been facing an extremely grave predicament: the Novel Coronavirus crisis. In addition to this, China has been encountering developmental disparities and a trade war. So, should we (overseas Chinese, diaspora Chinese and Chinese nationals abroad) be helping China?
I believe we should extend a helping hand (in rescuing our motherland from a corrupt administration), because if were not for the Chinese Government’s prolonged concealment of the facts of the virus, and leading the people into not having adequate time to prepare against this viral disaster, the virus would not have spread. Gradually, this contagion has extended itself all over the world. It is due to this problem that we have therefore witnessed the closures of many factories, which has impacted a great number of countries.
The challenges do not stop there. There are still developmental disparities. China’s disparities in development are especially serious. Some areas such as Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin are all relatively more developed. There is ease and convenience in people purchasing and consuming goods and services. On the contrary, there are some rural areas with an especially huge number of poor families. Their medical access and spending power can be said to be somewhat weaker.
Moreover, there is that trade war that everyone is talking about. If there comes a day when America moves its factories out of China into India, China’s unemployment rate will dramatically increase. The living standards of the people may gradually take a dive.
Therefore, I personally feel that we should rescue China; if we did this, perhaps one day citizens of China could be free to create a better country.
