IMAGINATION, FACTS AND OPPORTUNITIES – THE UNLIMITED POWER OF CHINA

Written by Victoria, BG

 China UNlimited___
What is the first thing that is coming to your mind when I say China?For most of the people all over the world maybe it is the GREAT WALL OF CHINA, or maybe the FORBIDDEN CITY or THE TERRACOTTA ARMY or may be something else …

Let me tell you what comes to my mind when I thing of China:

CHINA IS A COUNTRY WITH UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES. But not in the way that years ago people spoke for American dream. Here’s what I mean:

CAN YOU IMAGINE THE FUTURE?

In 20 or 30 years’ time: cosmopolitan cities, extremely well-developed technologies, electric cars buses moving around us.

Children learn in modern schools, have KNOWLEDGE FOR THIS FUTURE; developing skills and attitudes on how TO MAINTAIN THE STATUS QUO. Have the possibilities to collaborate with one another no matter of distance, language or culture.

Everybody have the freedom to travel on their destination. Everything is well organized.

No limits. Anyone can travel freely. Anywhere.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS?

This is the good side of the coin, and hopefully the other side is not so dark.

I think China will have a great contribution these things to happen. They will be part of a more technologically developed world. Let me tell you why I think so:

I live in a small country – Bulgaria. Yet we have a beautiful nature and lots of intelligent young people. Sometimes I think that Chinese people are somehow different than European. I have the opportunity to communicate with one of my daughter’s Chinese teacher. A woman with open mind and very positive attitude. I was amazed by her readiness to share all her knowledge to these children.

I’ve never been to China. But this is not an obstacle to read and learn things that China Is doing and as a whole different actions of this country. And these actions link back to this new reality that I described.

Think about who is THE BIGGEST INVESTOR playing on the world stage? This is China.

Who would invest in the national airline of Cyprus? China will do.

Who will build a HIGH-SPEED RAILWAY LINE FROM GREECE TO CENTRAL EUROPE? China will do.

Who planned INVESTMENTS IN THE MOSCOW SUBWAY? China will do.

Who is THE BIGGEST TRADING PARTNER OF THE EUROPEAN UNION? China is the one. The trade turnover is estimated at about 400 billion. Euro.

Who is THE BIGGEST EXPORTER in the world? China is the biggest exporter in the world, exporting $ 2.25 trillion in goods in 2014, according to the World Factbook. In comparison, the EU and the United States follow closely behind as second and third respectively.

Do you need more?

What about sports. SPORT in China is about more than PATRIOTISM. We can learn a lot of them. When we speak about preparation they show them as A STRONG, UNITED NATION WORKING TOGETHER. And they are proud to be the ones who represents the country.

China education is the LARGEST EDUCATION SYSTEM in the world. To be a teacher in China is one of the highly respected profession.

In addition, China is the WORLD’S LARGEST PRODUCER of potatoes, wheat, tomatoes, rice, and apples, and the top destination for the United States agricultural exports. Although China is a large agricultural producing country, it is increasingly dependent on imports to fully sustain its population.

China is often criticized for its large carbon dioxide emission and huge energy appetite. It is the world’s sixth largest natural gas importer, second largest crude oil importer, and the largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

Even though China has the world’s second largest economy, more than 135 million people in China live on less than $1 a day. This is extreme poverty and it means families are not able to afford the most basic necessities to ensure survival.

Their plans for the future are amazing: China will build enough skyscrapers to fill TEN New York-sized cities, by 2025. Can you imagine 40 billion square meters of floor space will be built — in five million buildings. 50,000 of these buildings could be skyscrapers — the equivalent of ten New York Cities.

China is giving us the opportunity to see the world through its eyes. Hopefully with good intention. I admire them for the possibility to plan so many years in advance.

If a country is developing in all possible areas there is no doubt that it is part of the new future. And hopefully China creates a world with UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES FOR ALL of us who want to BE PROUD OF WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WHERE WE ARE LIVING.

China’s got lots of room to GROW AND DEFINITELY that grow will INFLUENCE THE WHOLE WORLD not only EU.
