Geography

Located in Southeast Asia along the coastline of the Pacific Ocean, China is the world's third largest country, after Russia and Canada. With an area of 9.6 million square kilometers and a coastline of 18,000 kilometers, its shape on the map is like a rooster.

Natural Resources

China's ship has come in – along with Australia’s and Brazil’s, mainly because those are two countries that ship raw materials to China. Many ships glide into China's ports, loaded with vast quantities of natural resources that China needs to sustain economic growth.

Economy

By 1949, continuous foreign invasions, frequent revolutions and restorations, and civil wars had left the country with a fragile economy with little infrastructure. As Communist ascendancy seemed inevitable, almost all hard and foreign currency in China country were transported to Taiwan in 1948, making the war-time inflation even worse.The new government nationalized the country's banking system and brought all currency and credit under centralized control. It regulated prices by establishing trade associations and boosted government revenues by collecting agricultural taxes. By the mid-1950s, the communists had ruined the country's railroad and highway systems, barely brought the agricultural and industrial production to their prewar levels, by bringing the bulk of China's industry and commerce under the direct control of the state.

Education

To put it more appropriately, Chinese education is a common asset of the Chinese community while defending and developing Chinese education are the common aspiration, as well as a civil right granted by the Federal Constitution.

The country has a new political landscape after the general election in May this year. Chinese education is in a dire situation, as well as the greatest need of concern and defence.Chinese education does not belong to any individuals or groups. What the team defending Chinese education needs are unity rather than split; tolerance and open-mindedness rather than exclusion and self-enclosure; and mutual respect rather than mutual derogatory.The team members defending Chinese education are now distrusting each other and even going their own ways. It is indeed a major potential crisis for Chinese education.



Living conditions


For the past 43 years I have focused my interests on China. I have lived in China (mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong) for a total of 10 years.

In the past three years I made 14 separate trips to visit China’s rural areas.

My view is that one of China’s most serious problems is that over the past 50 years China’s leaders have constructed two China’s: a modern wealthy China and a backward rural poor China.
