NEW YORK, June 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 2014 July issue of NewsChina magazine highlights the following headline topics:

The cover story "Forward March" discusses China in Africa. Despite massive investment and firm pledges of commitment to indigenous development, China and its corporations have had a mixed reception in Africa. Facing criticism for China's policy towards Africa, Premier Li Keqiang unveiled Beijing's new strategy towards the continent on his recent African tour. Will a new strategy help to smooth out the wrinkles?

Politics: Safety First The Communist Party's newly established National Security Commission, headed by President Xi Jinping, highlights the administration's considerable emphasis on both domestic and international security.

Special Report: Lost Voices Newly-deciphered documents provide first-hand Japanese accounts of atrocities committed during World War II. Will they prove the game-changers Chinese historians claim them to be?

Economy: Ancient Practices, Modern Times China's top economic planning agency has announced its intention to revoke a regulation that grants the State exclusive rights to produce and sell table salt. Is this the beginning of the end for one of the world's oldest State monopolies?

Society: The Bad Die Young Corner-cutting, low industry standards and shoddy materials have turned the products of China's rampant construction boom into ticking time bombs.

Editorial: The success of further reform hinges on rekindling Reform Spirit China's new leadership appears to be pushing reform once more, but that enthusiasm is lacking at the local level.

Commentary: Common political ground can be worth its weight in gold Despite an economic slowdown, the shared aspirations of the BRICS nation can ensure the bloc's survival.
