If we watch this video from 02:30, the conversation goes as follows:
Mehedi Hassan: “You've claimed that liberal democracy would be quote miserably wrong for China is liberal democracy miserably wrong just for China or are you saying it's wrong for everyone.”
Dr. Zhang Weiwei: “I came to the humble conclusion a non-western country adopting Western political system usually ends up in two scenarios either euphoria to despair or front euphoria to Anarchy.”
Mehedi Hassan: “How do you feel the Japanese feel about that or the Indians were or the South Koreans all the people of Taiwan all of whom were in naught non-western societies and happily enjoying liberal democracy in varying degrees but liberal democracy assent.”
Dr. Zhang Weiwei: “In the case of Japan its industrialization was not achieved under democracy. It's under the Imperial ruling system. With my respect a lot of respect for India, I've been to India many times you look at the gap between India and China. We start a similar level now China economy almost five times bigger life expectancy ten years longer.”
Dr. Zhang Weiwei explained Japan, but actually skipped talking about S. Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan.
