TODAY’s Eileen Ng finds out more from four China experts: Professor Bo Zhiyue, director of Xipu Institution think-tank established by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in Suzhou, China; Assistant Professor Chong Ja Ian, who is with the National University of Singapore’s Political Science Department; Professor Steve Tsang, director of SOAS China Institute at the University of London and Mr Benjamin Ho, Associate Research Fellow at the China Programme, S.
