    BEIJING, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- When China overtook United States as the world's top goods trader in 2013, the country's celebrations were led by Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng.

    On Tuesday, in response to the news that the United States had retaken the lead by about 20 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, Gao was more sanguine: For major trading powers, short-term data anomalies are perfectly normal.

    Gao is more focused on a change of trajectory. China is weaning itself off its dependence on cheap exports and foreign money. For the past thirty or forty years, China has been the acknowledged master of sustained growth. The trick now is to move up the value chain and convert that "sustained" into "sustainable."

    Fluctuations in exchange rates and commodity prices drove China's exports and imports down in 2016, but as Gao says, it is no longer about blind expansion. It is about resources, it is about the environment. The era of "damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead" development has ended.

    Today, says Gao, growth must come through quality and efficiency. Cheap labor, land and resources are no longer the order of the day. Now, a significant portion of China's trade involves imported raw materials and assembly of imported parts into finished products that are then re-exported.

    Labor and land costs are rising rapidly. The old pattern is failing. Dirty factories harm the environment. Foreign trade relies on foreign exchange that brings uncontrollable vulnerability. Protectionists circle like vultures.

    The solution lies in higher value-added and higher quality products. Progress is already noteworthy.

    In 2016, exports of large and heavy equipment grew steadily. This progress was shadowed by growth in aerospace and optical communication products. Processing trade -- putting together imported bits and pieces of other countries' products and shipping them overseas again -- slipped to less than one third of total trade.

    Export standards have improved, along with techniques, brands and services in what Gao Hucheng describes as a "historic transformation."

    The rest of the world could benefit from China's sustainable strategy, as "Made in China" makes a semantic shift from "cheap and shoddy" to "reasonable and reliable."

    China hopes to import 8 trillion U.S. dollars of goods in the next five years. Chinese travellers overseas will carry with them huge amounts of revenue for entrepreneurs at their destinations.

    What China seeks is common prosperity: a community of shared future for mankind. That will inevitably mean coordination, consistency of governance and economic globalization: an open, inclusive, balanced society that benefits us all.

    As protectionism rears its ugly head, new setbacks are on the horizon.China will not waver from restructuring nor from its commitment to open trade and free trade for all.

    BERLIN Herre Nike Air VaporMax Grå Hvid Danmark , April 14 (Xinhua) -- Small ball or big ball, this is a question. Germany's star table tennis player Timo Boll Herre Nike Air VaporMax Sort Guld Danmark , once world No. 1 in the ITTF rankings, also loves football and even played as a striker at a local club when he was a kid. In an recent interview with Xinhua Herre Air Max 97 Sølv Grå Danmark , he said he believes that the hard-working and patient Chinese will manage to get nearer to the world's best with the help of a well-designed football development strategy.

    In the interview, he also talked about upcoming games in China Herre Air Max 97 Hvid Danmark , especially his pairing up with China's Ma Long in the men's doubles at this year's table tennis worlds in Suzhou.

    Xinhua: Mr. Boll, what do you prefer Herre Air Max 97 KPU Sort Rød Danmark , a small ball or more of a big one?

    Timo Boll (laughing): "That sounds like a life-long question and an impossible one to answer."

    Xinhua: Yes, it's either a football or a table-tennis ball. It's your decision...

    Boll: "Oh thank you Herre Air Max 97 KPU Blå Rød Danmark , somehow I feel I'm in a bit of a tricky situation right now. But seriously, table tennis is my lifelong passion but there again I'm German and have a great love of football Dame Air Max 97 Shockproof Hvid Guld Danmark , too."

    Xinhua: We're happy about that because we would like to talk about football and China.

    Boll: "That's going to be interesting because at the end of April I'll be playing in the table-tennis World Cup in Suzhou - and by the way in the double event with a great Chinese sportsman - Ma Long, the seven-time World Champion. And in July I'll be playing for Shandong Weiqiao in the Chinese Super League and will later compete in the China Open in Chengdu in August. By the way with a small table-tennis ball..."

    Xinhua: "We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for you. What are your goals with the small table-tennis ball?"

    Boll: "We want to win and play great table tennis. The doubles pairing is no PR gag Dame Air Max 97 GS Valentines Day Rød Hvid Danmark , it's something we will be taking very seriously. Ma Long is a top class player of which China has many. Our games suit each other as he is an absolute killer at the table. He has the hardest shots and is a fighter with a great character."

    Xinhua: "That's something you would need in football too, a fighting spirit and a team spirit. China recently has revealed plans to establish football as a national sport. What do you expect from China's football in the future?"

    Boll: "I'm looking forward with great interest as to how the plans of President Xi Jinping develop. I don't think the people in China expect a rapid short-term growth. China won't win the next World Cup. Firstly the Chinese people generally are very patient and it is one reason why I feel so at home in China. However the Chinese are ambitious too. Meaning: Once they have a goal Dame Air Max 97 GS Valentines Day Lilla Hvid Danmark , they constantly work towards achieving it and it will be the same way with football too."

    Xinhua: Do you expect China to become one of the world's top football nations?

    Boll: "China will manage to get nearer to the world's best. Of that I am sure about. But of course it will take a while. It's not possible to copy the so successful table tennis sys.
