(The Guardian) In unguarded comments at a private dinner, Johnson said the UK needs to engage with the emerging superpower while recognising they remain commercial rivals.

“We need to engage with China diplomatically, treat China as our friend and our partner, but also recognise that they are our commercial rivals. And they will try to stiff us.”

Johnson predicted that Chinese companies would eventually take over from Silicon Valley as the world’s technology giants.

“The Americans have run the tech world for decades. Microsoft, Google, Apple, blah, blah, blah – we’re used to them winning,” the foreign secretary said.

“No, no, no. The Chinese are about to win. They’ve got 5G. They’ve found out a way. Everybody’s going to be getting stuff on their gizmos through the Chinese system and not the American system. So watch out for that one.”

It is still too early to tell who will win. It is more important for China to concentrate on the important matters like social welfare, technological development, scientific research, infrastructure development for the future, international relationship,...etc. Frivolous matters like "thumping the chest" only seeps away energy and achieves little.

Boris Johnson is a dangerous fool.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

Boris Johnson is a bigger fool than trump.
Human lives mean little when those in the WEST see a bigger gain through war
