CHINA UNLIMITED. PEOPLE UNLIMITED. RESTRICTIONS LIMITED

By Emiliyan , BG

 China Unlimited Europe 2015China is on the planet Earth. If you watch the map – in right of Russia, there are many fabrics there and they produce everything – this is the most common view of the People’s Republic of China by Europeans and Bulgarians. Unfortunately. What do the Chinese think about Bulgaria? – Probably yoghurt, roses and nature … And what they think about Europe – the little continent between Russia and the USA, which wants to be a rocker …

But why is this? What stops us in the age of ever unthinkable moment character of the information and relations to be familiar, to be partners?

For most countries from long time it doesn’t matter what people from the other countries think of them – what matters is only the interstate relations, including most notably the economy with its various sub-sectors. Even in some cases, countries may directly benefit from non-international information and experiences between people – to make it easier to create paradigms of the “good state” and “bad state”. Accordingly, the people themselves do not have the resources to quality observe and inform processes in other countries – no matter if these are neighbor countries, whether they are large and significant once – people are swallowed by their everyday life, survival and the battle to lead some social life … And unlike humans, states simply can not have the qualities to be “good” or “bad” – states are simply a function of the ruling elite and the so-called international situation …

Obviously there are many gaps in knowledge and relationships between people in China and the European Union (including Bulgaria) … Obviously it takes a lot of bridges of friendship that bind individuals, small communities and formations on both sides.

Globally China, Chinese goods, Chinese business, independent policy, Chinese philosophies and forms of spiritual and physical upliftment … even Chinese restaurants – are key indicators for the unlimited presence of China at present. When I signify the word “China”, I mean all this and more – Chinese ancient culture, the proverbial diligence, huge scales and at the same time – the unbelievable spiritual luminance of people – all in contrast to the current Bulgarian reality (in many ways and European, too). In this sense, China is not only unlimited in its presence de facto in the whole world, but it is an example and role model – of personal, business and government level – regardless of the essential differences in the political and economic features.

For my great regret, I haven’t had direct contact with China and the Chinese culture and mentality of the people of “the state of the 21st century” (according to many political and economic analysts). Many of the people in Bulgaria and European Union didn’t have this chance, neither – an omission which can not be caught up with one or two initiatives, one or two years – can be compensated only with targeted measures by mutual projects mostly in tourism, sport, culture, education and economy. And these initiatives must go on the cumbersome vertical axis “state – people” as unfortunately the horizontal approach “people – people” in this case is very unreliable because of the numerous cultural, linguistic and other differences described in one word – distance! I.e., the required activation of relations and opportunities has to start with political will (at the level China – European Union), with specific project and initiative proposals aimed at people – small business, NGOs, sports and educational organizations, tourist companies and operators, galleries, community centers and museums. In all these areas, Bulgaria (and I believe most EU countries have much to offer) can offer really much – on the one hand as exports to China and from other hand, of course – as opportunities for adoption of Chinese projects.

Already seven-year financial and moral crisis of the “Western” political and economic doctrine that has gripped mostly US, European Union (largely and Bulgaria) impose measures to upgrade the understanding of the spatial borders in politics and business, requires measures for optimizing partnerships of any kind, for expanding opportunities and enhancing intercultural dialogue, and China is the perfect partner in this respect – due to indicated and missed to be indicated positive features. Among other positives, such enhanced dialogue and partnership would have further preventative effect on the tense international political dialogue now, it would boost confidence and opportunities for development, it would boost social, economic and sports-educational relations between China and the European Union – as a basis for better communication.

Western philosophy came to a crisis of almost all socio-economic levels and this is considered as a fatal obstacle, while Eastern philosophy and China say: Crisis equals to opportunity. Does this mean that the major crisis is actually a great opportunity? Let’s hope so!
