What China can do!
Long time ago England was the factory of the world.From steam engines to wool products.
Now the factory of the world is China. Almost all we purchase is made in China.From excellent, complicated computers to dresses,shoes and dishes.
Chinese effectiveness and care creates admiration and envy.
In June and July alone three news from Peking caused surprise.
The cosmos ship" Shenzhou 9 " successfully completed its flight with three astronauts in the North China.
It was the first time when Chinese astronauts leaving the cosmos ship joined with the space lab ,with the chance of creating space station in cosmos.
Back on the ground, Chinese created miracles.New train line joins Tibet and Lhasa across mountains 500 meters above sea level. Karakum Highway goes over Hindukush mountains 4700 meters above sea level.That is the work demands colossal effort where temperature fluctuations from +40C to -40C.This is China's gift to Pakistan-$400 millions.
Grandiose projects are worked in Peking,involving transcontinental railroad net in cooperation with other countries that start in China,go through Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, will cross Caspian sea(avoid Russia) go to Aserbeidjan,Gruzia,Turkey, Balcans, France,London, Spain.There will be rapid travel passenger and freight-carrying trains.
Maybe someone might say that the authoritative regime is chasing dissidents,and communist party rule.That is true,but there is hope.Communist party in an upcoming party congress in October will work on a new constitution, that will guarrantee freedom to establish new parties and constitution.
Difficult to believe,but maybe pragmatism and common sense will prevail?
