CHINA'S ECONOMIC REVIVAL WILL FACE SERIOUS HEADWINDS
Quite apart from the huge tragic cost to human life caused by the Coronavirus (COVID- 19) pandemic, mishandling of which by China’s leadership has angered and frustrated the country’s citizens as evidenced by the riots at the border check-post between Hubei and Jiangxi provinces on March 28, the pandemic has severely impacted China’s economy. The epidemic virtually stopped China’s economic growth for nearly three months and rendered millions jobless.

DISSATISFACTION WITH CHINESE PRESIDENT XI JINPING MOUNTS
Expressions of popular discontent in China have increased and are mounting pressure on Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The widespread anger among Chinese citizens at the lack of transparency and attempt to withhold information about outbreak of the Coronavirus epidemic was the spark that fanned the latent discontent which, provoked by the abolition of term-limits on appointments to China’s apex posts of President, Vice President and cadres to the Politburo and its Standing Committee, has been simmering since the 19th Party Congress in October 2017.

THE COVID-19 EPIDEMIC AND CHINA’S ECONOMY
The Coronavirus epidemic struck China when it was in the midst of serious economic problems and high unemployment and Chinese economists were already candidly warning of a 1 percent drop in growth this year. The attempted cover-up by Chinese authorities of the Coronavirus epidemic for nearly two months -- unimaginable in democracies -- exacerbated economic losses and disruption in addition to causing the loss of numerous lives and delaying an international medical response to the virus.

TIBET AUTONOMOUS REGION (TAR)’s EXPENDITURE ON PUBLIC SECURITY
Tibetans have till this day not acquiesced to China’s occupation of Tibet or large portions of its territory being merged with the neighbouring Xinjiang-Uyghur Autonomous Region and the Qinghai, Sichuan, Gansu and Yunnan provinces to create the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) in September 1965. In the process Tibet was reduced in area from 2.5 million square kms to 1.2 million square kms.

CHINA AND U.S. COULD EMERGE AS ADVERSARIES OVER THE TIBET ISSUE
China’s communist authorities appear to have reached the conclusion approximately 18 months ago that the time for selecting the reincarnation of the XIVth Dalai Lama is drawing near. Since then they have stepped up efforts to capture the hearts and minds of the Tibetan people and adapt Tibetan Buddhism to “socialism with Chinese characteristics”.

POPULAR PROTESTS UNDERMINE CHINESE PRESIDENT XI JINPING'S CREDIBILITY
Popular discontent and dissatisfaction with Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) simmering since March 2018 erupted into overt public criticism from the end of January 2020, prompted by news of the Wuhan virus epidemic becoming public. There is presently little indication of it abating till at least the epidemic begins to peter out. By then it would have palpably dented, if not damaged, the credibility and image of Chinese President Xi Jinping and the CCP.

DPP's WIN IN TAIWAN ELECTIONS WILL HAVE REPERCUSSIONS
The results of Taiwan’s national elections announced on January 12, confirmed assessments that Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen’s popularity ratings had received a substantial boost, partly because of China’s threatening posture but mainly because of the unceasing protests in Hongkong that have now entered their ninth month without losing popular support. The results will impact China. Beijing -- and Chinese President Xi Jinping -- now confront the prospect of the ‘China Dream’, envisaging China’s ‘reunification’ by 2021 or even 2049, becoming a distant prospect. The results could have wider repercussions in the region.

CHINESE PRESIDENT XI JINPING FACES DIFFICULT TIMES AHEAD
There are clear indications that popular dissatisfaction and discontent with Chinese President Xi Jinping inside China continues to simmer just below the surface. The economic slowdown, unemployment and rising cost of living have contributed to the discontent.
