China Steps Out Despite All

Amid all the handwringing over the seriousness of the slowdown of the economy, two pieces of the other side of China.

One: Beijing has offered financial assistance to help Taipei cope with the impact of the global economic crisis and has proposed broader financial links, which would be another step in restoring government-level talks.

Two: a pair of Navy destroyers and a supply vessel will head for the Gulf of Aden on December 26 to protect merchant ships from attacks by Somali pirates. The ships will join warships from the EU, U.S., India, Russia, Malaysia and seemingly now Iran.

Steppin’ out.
