Business and economy
China, now the fourth-biggest economy in the world, has gained rapidly on the industrialized nations, both in consumption and gross domestic product.
China's export push over the last few years has flooded the world with cheap consumer goods, and has attracted billions of dollars of investment from U.S., European, Japanese, South Korean and Taiwanese makers relocating their factories to China.
But that soaring growth rate has prompted protests from the U.S. and Europe, which say an artificially low value for the Chinese currency gives the country an unfair competitive advantage in its trade dealings.

Arms embargo against China
EU leaders agreed last December to work towards lifting the 15-year arms embargo against China by the end of June.
But the EU is widely expected to delay lifting the embargo amid opposition from the United States and concern over Beijing's passage of a law authorizing the use of military force against Taiwan.
North Korea's nuclear ambitions
The United States, the two Koreas, China, Japan and Russia have held three rounds of six-party talks since 2003, aimed at persuading the North to abandon its nuclear weapons development in return for economic and diplomatic rewards.
But no significant progress was reported in those talks, all hosted by China, North Korea's last remaining major ally.
