CHN is no show probably due to the National City Games currently taking place.
The National City Games is second only to the National Games in importance in the Chinese sports calendar. Local sports officials are measured by the results in these games. To them, they are even more important than the Olympics. In fact, the local sports officials want to have their athletes peak at these games rather than the Olympics. It became such a problem that the national sports bureau installed the rule to count Olympics medals as National Games medals to alleviate this problem.
The National City Games is a show case for the up-and-comers. That may be the reason that CHN can't send a team to this year's WJC.

I think Chinas "Boycott" is childish, from such a great country!!!
I hope BWF puts next WCs and Olympics in Taipei also, so CHN politicians must take a stand if they want to look backward to the history or forward into the future and shiny gold medals... :-)

RI juniors to make the best of China’s absence at worlds
Agnes Winarti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 10/20/2011 8:02 AM
The absence of badminton powerhouse China at the upcoming World Junior Badminton Championships in Taoyuan City, Taiwan, provides an opportunity for the Indonesian junior shuttlers to bring home more gold medals.
“Their absence is an excellent opportunity. China has been dominant in almost all of the sectors. Now, a golden opportunity is wide open in four sectors: the men’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles,” the coach for the junior squad, Bambang Supriyanto, said on Wednesday.
“Hopefully, we can shine in those individual events,” said Bambang.
The Indonesian youngsters will depart for Taoyuan City on Oct. 25 to attend the world junior championships, which will take place from Oct. 28 to Nov. 6.
The first four days of the tournament will feature the team events, while the remaining days will host the individual events, offering a total of five gold medals.
It was not clear why China pulled out from among the 24 participating countries, though reports suggest it is due to the political situation between the Chinese and Taiwanese governments.
Last year in Mexico City, China was the defending champion and won the Suhandinata Cup by defeating South Korea (3-0) in the team final, while Malaysia snatched third place after beating Indonesia 3-2.

Badminton: Girls Expected to Help Lead the Way for Indonesia
Ami Afriatni | October 19, 2011
While Indonesia’s women in the senior national team are struggling in international tournaments, their juniors are expected to spearhead Indonesia’s team at next week’s World Junior Championships in Taiwan.
The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) sent 20 shuttlers to Taoyuan City for the event, which runs Oct. 28 to Nov. 6, and expects at least individual gold medals from boys singles and girls doubles.
With China absent from the tournament for unspecified reasons, Indonesia also has a good chance to lift the Suhandinata Cup in the team event, but head coach Bambang Supriyanto said the focus was on individuals.
“We have a better chance on winning gold in individual events, so we’ll put our efforts toward making sure of that,” Bambang said on Wednesday.
Girls doubles pair Suci Rizki Andini and Tiara Rosalia Nuraidah will be the country’s best bet as they won the Asian Youth Under-19 Championships in Lucknow, India, in July.
“This will be our last junior championship because next year we have to move to the senior level because of our age. We want to close our junior years with something great,” said Tiara, 18.
Bambang said he believed the pair could clinch the title, especially with Chinese shuttlers playing in the Asian Championships. “Right now they are the best girls doubles [pair] in the world. I have no doubt about that,” he said.
Sheshar Hiren Rustavito and Riyanto Subagja are Indonesia’s top hopes in boys singles.
In boys and mixed doubles, Bambang said shuttlers were expected to reach the semifinals. Mixed doubles pair Lukhi Apri Nugroho and Ririn Amelia have a good chance at gold as they also won an Asian youth title.
While the PBSI did not set a target for girls singles, Elizabeth Purwaningtyas has her own ambitions. “I want to reach at least the last eight. I was able to do that in India,” she said.

I really hope Suci-Tiara can win the WJC title this year as this will be the last year for them to play in WJC, they have become runner up in WJC 2009 and win AJC 2011 title. Good luck Suci-Tiara!
