The fall season is a time to prepare for winter and enjoy the annual ritual of watching the emergence of fall colors as nature does it thing.  This being an election year, this annual change of seasons will be fraught with political intrusions that will test our patience and tolerance level to try to win our vote. In a democratic society as the United States of America, we are fortunate to be able to exercise our constitutional right to vote in a democratic presidential election every four years.  This year China will also be experiencing a change in government leaders that takes place every 10 years but follows a much more different process.


With this issue, China Insight officially celebrates its 10th anniversary of publishing that began in February, 2002 when we determined that there was a need for an English language newspaper that would help mutually promote business and cultural understanding between China and the United States. This would not have been possible without a dedicated volunteer staff and the support of our advertisers along with those of you that follow us regularly through print or the internet.

In the decade since our first issue was published in February, 2002, there have been many events that have influenced China's re-emergence onto the global scene.
