Xi not making global impact, Pew survey finds

President Xi Jinping is failing to make much of an impression on global politics and people concerned about human rights but on balance the country is viewed positively, Reuters reported Monday, citing a Pew Research Center report.

While more than 90 percent of Chinese had confidence in Xi, his rating dropped to 28 percent in the United States and 6 percent in Japan, the report said.

Global impressions of China were on balance more favourable than unfavourable, with the country’s economic growth generally seen as a good thing in most countries surveyed, it said.
