The public is fed CCP propaganda through mass media, such as “If you love the country, you must love the ruling party” and “Without CCP, there is no new China”, etc. “Promoting the party as the defender of the nation’s interests is a key element in its strategy for survival.” (Dickson, p. 13) So, whenever China launches a military operation for showing its sovereignty in certain islands (like Uotsuri Jima and South China Sea Islands), national sentiment is aroused. Hence, the popular support increases. But, military operations do not always happen. Instead, the news of Xi’s anti-corruption campaign has been widely circulated in the public by mass media since 2012.
Confucianism and chinese business culture Tongji university, Academic Lectures ZHANG Yan, Professor of Shanghai International Studies University Lucile Cauchy 1459183 Introduction China is a now a completely modern society, but the way in which this modernity manifest is without contest shaped by the legacy of its traditional past. When doing business in China, Managers have to consider several factors to ensure their success. First rule is understanding Chinese Culture.

The conservative factions emphasised that only Confucianism could be accepted by the Chinese. The pro-reform factions held that archaic laws such as adultery should not be regulated by a modern Chinese criminal code and should be resolved in other ways even though it ran against Confucianism9. It is significant to Note that the Japanese legal experts of the time, undergoing their own process of modernisation, agreed with the pro-reform factions, asserting that the line between individual ethics and social ethics must be drawn in a modern China10. Cixi eventually grew disdain for western powers and allied with the anti-western and xenophobic Boxer Rebellion. The defeat of China and Empress Dowager and the slow decline of state capacity, blockaded Chinas progressive advancement towards modernity11
The socialist China based its sustainability throughout Chinese history on three main features. The Public Ownership, that’s the Chinese government owned all sectors, large factories, communication and transportation enterprises to be state-owned. Full stabilization for the price system by the state and assigning low prices to agricultural products while high prices for the industrial outputs were there with autonomous investment decision making in order to secure surpluses to enhance its Big Push industrialization strategy. There wasn’t a parallel path between market and state, it was diffused. The Political Patronage, under Mao’s rule, represented in the monopoly of power by the communist party.
WILL CHINA’S CHANGE THEIR FOREIGN POLICY ON SOUTH CHINA SEA DISPUTE? “China’s does not see itself as a rising, but a returning power. It does not view the prospect of a strong China exercising influence in economic, cultural, political, and military affairs as an unnatural challenge to the world order – but rather as a return to a normal state of affairs”. Henry Kissinger (2012) 1.1 INTRODUCTION On November 2012, Xi Jinping was appointed as secretary of the Congress Party. This appointment has witnessed an important milestone in the history of China and it is a starting point to a change in foreign policy and international relations of China.
During the reformation that took place in the early years of the Chinese communist regime, there were was a simplification of the Chinese writing system, but before I explain what they did to the language, I need to provide historical context. During the 1960s, the Communist Party of China sought to obliterate ancient Chinese culture via the Cultural Revolution. This revolution targeted the so-called Four Olds: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas. Classical Chinese literature was burned, Chinese architecture was obliterated, Chinese paintings were torn apart: anything resembling to ancient Chinese culture that was nurtured for centuries was simply destroyed. In an effort to further disconnect modern-day China from its roots, the Chinese Communist Party promoted the simplification of Chinese characters, which take root from Literary Chinese, Chinese that was written during the Han Dynasty.
The party has been in power for much of the populations’ entire lives. Their policies have permeated almost every aspect of Chinese society. Mark Elvin says; “Chinese Communism did, during the time that it was a living faith and not just a discredited shell, provide the Chinese with a story by which to live. With its current disintegration they face the loss of not just one but of two systems of belief and life-orientation within a single century (Brown, 148).” This quote suggests that the CCP were so influential that they have almost become a belief system for the Chinese. The CCP were responsible for most aspects of the Chinese lives’.
Introduction China, a developing country with increasing influence and bargaining power on world economies and politics, has experienced rapid transformations since the implementation of Reform and Open-up policy in 1978. “Pop Culture China! : Media, Arts, and Lifestyle” can be regard as a Social Science and History book which covers different aspects of popular culture of China.

To understand the driving factor for internationalizing Chinese higher education is imperative to describe the position of education in China which is fundamental starting point. Any society give education due attention to education be call it modern or traditional, in its own way, like wise Chinese society. From their ancient history it is evidenced that the place Chinese give to education is comparatively high. This can be found particularly from the great educator Confucius（孔子）（551B.C~479 B.C）teaching that education is regarded as an important component of social development. I think and believe, Chinese are one of the early people, societies who think social development through education, that show their position for education.
Chinese culture and practices weather its business or culture are different than that of west.
