Experts urge people to be rational on Carrefour issue

ADMITTING the patriotism of those calling for the boycott of French retailer Carrefour, several senior Chinese intellectuals Saturday called on the public to choose a rational way to express their love for the country.

“What happened in France showed that some French people did lack true understanding of China, including the Tibet issue,” said Zhou Xing, professor with the College of Art and Communication of Beijing Normal University.

“But I think what we should do is improve foreigners’ understanding about China. We had better not turn extreme,” he said.

Online and text message calls for boycotts of Carrefour and other foreign retailers have been spreading in China in response to the disruptions of the Olympic torch relay in Paris.
