加拿大媒体眼中的中国   Shawn Powell - 重庆枫叶总领事处 - 重庆枫叶总领事处 的博客 

The best way to describe the view of China in Canadian media is the TV specially called “China Rising”. It was a 4 hour TV special about China and talked about all the important issues.

The documentary starts by showing us the fast economy change that has happened in China. In a short amount of time, China has become one of the most powerful countries in the world economy. The major cities such as Shanghai and Beijing have been completely rebuilt and have some of the most interesting building in the world. These cities are also very international and feature food and culture from many different countries. In the last 20 years, China has become much richer and many western countries want to do business here in China. The Olympics was a large event and it gave China a chance to show the world some of the changes. It also helped to show the world some of the Chinese history China has become one of the more popular countries for tourists to travel and China is very popular in western movies.

The documentary then goes on to discuss if the changes have all been good, since poor people are still poor and the cost of living has gone up in China. China has 3 major industries, farming, construction and manufacturing. All of these industries have low paying jobs and only the owners and managers benefit from this. Everyone is curious if China can change the major industries and establish a middle class. The lowest paying job is farming, and if people continue to leave the farms and move to the cities then China will not have enough food to survive. Another concern is that China is using natural resources at a fast pace and the pollution levels are rising quickly. No one knows how bad the pollution level has become because not enough research has been done yet.

Overall, this TV special and other Canadian media are curious about China. We are very impressed by some of the changes and we also want to know what changes will happen in the future.

 

“崛起的中国”是加拿大某电视台推出的4小时介绍中国的特别节目。

这个纪录片从介绍中国经济的巨变开始。在较短的时间内,中国发展成为对世界经济最有影响的国家之一,北京、上海等主要城市也逐渐成为国际化的大都市,林立的高楼,多元的文化,让世人瞩目。经过20年的发展,中国变得富裕了,许多西方国家都争先恐后地来到中国来开拓市场。北京奥运会的成功举办更是给中国提供了一次向全世界展示其巨大变化的机会,骄傲地向他们展示五千年文化韵味的同时又不失现代城市的魅力。中国已经成为深受国外旅游者欢迎的国家之一,并经常出现在西方的电影中。

纪录片随后也讨论了一些比较现实性的问题,人民的基本生活成本在增长,但是部分贫穷人们生活状况转化缓慢。中国有三个重要的产业:农业、建筑业和制造业。在这些产业里,只有老板和经营者能够从中获取利润,普通工人的工资非常低,只能维持基本的生活。很多人都感兴趣如果中国改变现状,发展出中产阶级会是怎样的状况。在三大产业中,农民的工资是最低的,农民离开土地到城市寻求发展,如果这种现状持续下去的话,中国将没有足够的粮食满足全国人民的需求。另外一个让人担忧的问题是中国对自然资源的使用成快速增长的趋势,随之更加严重的是对环境的污染。由于没有足够深入的研究,没有人知道污染继续发展下去会带来什么样的后果。

总之,加拿大媒体对中国有着浓厚的兴趣,中国的巨大的变化使我们震惊,也期待着中国接下来的发展。
