The National Mandarin Vision: A Strategic Application Paper on the Art of War

Bryant Philippe Sy Lee


In 2020, China envisioned that 80% of its population would start speaking in its national dialect, Mandarin. This is a plan envisioned by the Chinese Government in Beijing to culturally and socially unite the population and present a cohesive and strong nation. According to the Chinese government, 70% of its population in China is capable or is currently speaking in different languages including foreign languages and local dialects as well, and only 40% of the rural population are able to speak the Mandarin dialect. This paper aims to formulate a strategic plan patterned after the Art of War to accomplish the set goal as stated before. The paper is restricted to the specific timeframe and as such any social, political and economic changes outside of the timeframe would not be accounted for.
