Schwarzenegger checks out high-speed rail

E-mail Print

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is engaging in a little window-shopping of China's new high-speed train lines in Shanghai while peddling Californian exports and tourism in the world's second-largest economy. This high-speed train is built between Shanghai and Nanjing.

Industry experts say cash-rich China may be best placed to help with funding, and less risk averse than others whose banks are still recovering from the financial crisis. That could prove a key competitive advantage as it goes head-to-head against better established high-speed rivals rail in Asia and Europe.

C-section in August

E-mail Print

Many motheres in China want their babies born in August of each year. Sounds strange? In a maternity hospital in Nanjing, an expectant mother was trying to persuade a doctor to perform a cesarean section on her.

 "My stomach hurts a lot," Lin said, looking hopefully into the eyes of the doctor. "Please expedite the delivery."

China fights against tobacco companies

E-mail Print

In China, tobacco companies sponsor schools and many other institutions. Almost half of all male doctors smoke. And one wedding dinner ritual involves the bride lighting cigarettes for each of her male guests.

China has committed to banning smoking at public indoor venues by Jan. 9 next year, in accordance with a global anti-tobacco treaty backed by the World Health Organization. But smoking is such a way of life that China is unlikely to meet the deadline, and even the government seems resigned to failure.


77% of Chinese would emigrate to Canada if given the chance

Poll results from shanghaiist.com

Looks like ridiculous housing prices at home isn't the only reason to move to Canada - it's actually just so nice over there, eh? At least that's what 77% of Chinese people think (and 53% of adults in the world's 24 leading economies for that matter). To them, not only does Canada have "one of the best qualities of life anywhere in the world" and tolerance of all types of people, it's also a country that's "welcoming to immigrants" and where "rights and freedoms are respected." This bodes well for both Canada's attempts to lure in more global talent and for its population to finally grow beyond that of Shanghai and its surrounding area.

E-mail Print

Rogers Corporation, a global leader in the development and manufacture of high performance engineered materials, has recently received two award honors from the Chinese government.

The first award, "Level A Credit Company for Labor Security", was given to Rogers for its labor compliance and positive management of its employees. The award is based on Rogers having met or exceeded labor compliance requirements during the last two years, including cooperation with the local Chinese labor union and the high audit scores Rogers received related to labor compliance audits. Only 132 companies of the 17,000 doing business in the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) received the Level A award. Suzhou Industrial Park is a planned industrial, commercial and residential community where thousands of companies, including many of the largest corporations in the world, have established facilities.
