China’s Elusive President – James Reynolds

 Dy C 2007-10-07 U1874P1T1D14030921F21Dt20071007082314 From BBC News:

Chinese President Hu Jintao is one of the most powerful men in the world.

He leads more than a billion people, runs the world’s largest army, controls the world’s fourth biggest economy, and, if he wants, he can fire off the first weapons in a global nuclear war.

But outside China, he is almost entirely unknown. There are no pictures of going bare-chested fishing like Russian President Vladimir Putin, or power-jogging like France’s Nicolas Sarkozy.

China’s president could quite easily spend his entire day in Times Square in New York or Trafalgar Square in London and go completely un-noticed. [Full Text]

In order to present a more colorful personality of Mr. Hu Jintao, CCP’s official media site, People’s Daily Online had an article about Hu’s paper-cutting skills on October 7, 2007 (see the picture). This story has caused a new wave of satirical comments from Chinese bloggers, read here, here and here (in Chinese).
