From BBC NEWS: China is expanding economically and militarily
China’s influence on the world is seen as positive by more people than is the case for the US or Russia, according to a new BBC World Service poll.
In total, 48% of people polled in 22 countries said China’s role was mainly positive. Only 30% saw it as mainly negative.
The majority of respondents were also positive about the communist nation’s growing economic power.
But far fewer people wanted to see an increase in its military might.
