The ongoing tensions between Taiwan and China have sparked speculation about China's true policy towards Taiwan. China's public statements emphasize "peaceful development" and the concept of unity between the two regions. However, China avoids explicit statements on its reunification policies, creating uncertainty about its true intentions. China relies on broad ideologies like the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the concept of "one country, two systems" to avoid revealing specific intentions. This ambiguity allows China to maintain a delicate balance of saying something without committing to a clear course of action. China's historical claims and references to the 1992 consensus are used to reinforce its position that Taiwan has always been a part of China and that peaceful cooperation has been the norm. However, China's reluctance to discuss the future creates uncertainty about its true intentions. China also uses its internal hierarchy as a signaling mechanism. When Taiwan allowed the stationing of U.S. military, China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs blamed Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party and the U.S., accusing them of undermining the "One China Principle." The coordinated response from multiple government bodies indicates a unified stance against threats to this principle, but specific actions or steps are not outlined. Overall, China's approach appears to be focused on buying time rather than taking immediate aggressive action. While tensions persist, there is no concrete evidence suggesting an imminent invasion of Taiwan by China. The appropriate response to China's rhetoric and the motivations of those engaged in dialogue with China remain open questions.

China is strategizing to become a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and data regulation. While China lags behind in unsupervised machine learning, it faces challenges due to restrictions on importing advanced chips and limitations on language transfer and speech. The initial draft of China's generative AI law imposed stringent requirements, but the final legislation was more nuanced and allowed wiggle room for tech companies. China has also facilitated easier data export for foreign companies, reversing the burden of specifying important data. This approach provides Chinese tech firms with a shield against private litigations faced by Western counterparts. China's regulatory moves could lead to a potential shift in the AI landscape, with China leveraging its strengths in applied research. Ignoring China's regulatory developments is no longer an option for businesses in the AI space.
