Time span: 2006 Jan - 2006 Jun
China's GDP Growth Rate:12%
Since it is higher than the planned growth rate(9.9%), China's gov is now trying to slow it down.

GDP growth rate of Guangdong Province(No.1 province in China): 14.4%
According to the current developing speed, the economic of Guangdong province will surpass Taiwan in 2008. The re-unification of mainland and taiwan is inevitable.

How exactly is re-unification inevitable? Because a country that has 100 times the population has a higher GDP?

Are you implying that the Taiwanese peopel will flock to the workers paradise simply because it is bigger in terms of economy?

Now if you said there is fundemental changes in the political structure that makes it closer to Taiwans, then you may have a point. Otherwise its the SOS

How is reunifying Taiwan with China inevitable? You still did not answer that question that another poster asked, thanks

That is straightforward. As the economic of China continues to grow in the next few decades, the Taiwan people will be more willing (or have to)to communicate with mainland people.
The more we contact, the bigger chance for reunifying mainland and taiwan.

As far as I know, more and more Taiwan people are now coming to visit China. And many of them also access mainland's forums and websites. China mainland and taiwan people not only discuss the political issues but also share our feelings about Chinese music, food and movie because we speak and use the same language, we have the same culture. (Remember what An Lee said in the Oscar award few months ago)

Also, according the latest poll in Twaiwan, the attitude of Twaiwan people to mainland is much better than before. In a word, reunifying Taiwan with China is just a matter of time.

imo china has been taken over by taiwan

look at it this way

Taiwan was capitalist, China was socialist

Nowdays, China is capitalist

Taiwan re-conquored the mainland

Just a opinion , a crude way of putting it

China chooes its way to be capitalist or socialist. It has nothing to do with Taiwan which is too small to influence China mainland.
Actually, nowdays China has a new form mixed of capitalist and socialist.

About Taiwan influencing China- its not true. China simply saw a great opportunity in becoming more open economically (when Nixon was president in US), and they made the right bet. The government could not pass up an opportunity to become as rich as they are today, so they altered their communist morals and culture, to be more adapt to the new capitalist liefestyle- for the most part very succesfully. And they might be capitalist in economics, but in many social affairs they are still socialist.

As for being as strong as they are- why shouldn't they. They have by far the most population of any country of earth (together with India). And population, coupled with a very cunning government still decides alot today for the country's well being. It is only natural for China to overtake US in most categories, and become the strongest nation on earth. And to be honest I am no less scared of US being the main superpower, than China being the main superpower.

And as such, it is also natural for a powerful nation like China, to quickly increase its worldwide influence, and especially influence among South East Asian countries, inclusing Taiwan. Why shouldn't Taiwan eventually join back with China. Honk Kong did it successfully. And I beilieve eventual Taiwan's reunification with China will be rather peaceful. In another decade or so, I am sure many small countries will want to be a part of the new Chinese superpower, and share its great wealth. But this process is not quick, and Taiwan will likely stay independent for many years to come. So nothing to get worried about here. Let natural politics take its course.

If other developing countries such India want to catch up with China, the first thing they need to do is to build an excellent infrastructure that China have done in the past 20 years.IMO, China is now building one of the best infrastructure systems in the world.
1. The only one magnetics aerotrain system in the world, in Shanghai
2. The biggest airport in the world,in Beijing
3. The fastest subway(120KM/H) system in the world, in Guangzhou(Canton)
4. The Tibet railway which is located in the highest altitude in the world

So we're supposed to believe China is allpowerful and awesome because you posted some minor statistics, and not even economic trends at that, followed by a list of pictures... Now, I could put up some economic stats of Michigan, which, like China, has some very strong economic regions, and follow it with some pictures of Detroit or Flint or some of the other large cities. Does that change the fact that Michigan overall has one of the worst economies, and no matter how pretty the skylines of the cities are, that they're really just total dumps? No, it does not.

This thread is just more propaganda.

You can see current GDP ppp chart above. It is obvious that USA is far a. from China. Japan is currently third major economy in the world and India forth. You can see 2005 GDP real growth rates here. China real GDP growth rate is 9.2%(Actual growth rate must be higher), USA 3.5% and so on.


So if major economies will grow approximately with 2005 real GDP growth rates for next ten years than in 2015 China and India together will have more than 50 % biggest GPD than USA. China will be biggest economy in the world and India will be third. And according to all predictions that is most likely scenario.

All predictions? And do you have any links to supporting evidence for that comment?

Interesting.

These are the first photos that I've seen of China with a clear sky in a good while. Most of the documentaries I've been watching lately make it look so desolate.

Really enjoy Chinese theatre, both live and cinema.

Ive been here a few years, the arts are fantastic. live performances are incredible, ancient fables and myths brought to life, including popular western themes. the production value is very good, right there with anything produced in europe or USA.
Have seen American companies scouting locations, imagine it wont be long for hollywood to discover the scenery and cost of filming in China as well.

The countrysise has magnificent views and vistas, it is a Nation on the verge of discovery by the rest of the world.

and dont be afraid, china has no plans to conquer the world or subject anyone to "communist rule"

Toolman, thanks for your comments. Also thank you for doing business in China. Hope that your company can help local economic.

China is still a developing country, although some big cites in China are already as modern as the western cities, there are still some very poor rural places.

If you guys are still interested on China's photos, I am going to update this thread everyday since I have thousands of photos, not only about the modern cities but also about the poverty commonly seen in the west China.

I believe the best way to eliminate one's bias is let him or her see the things with his/her eyes. The second way is to show them the photos.

You will know how does "Red China" look like from my photos, although I havn't seen the words like "capitalism" or "Communism" in China's newspaper for many years.

Great Pictures...........but you haven't shown what the majority of China looks like...the rural areas....the villages in which people are forced to abondon their homes which have been in the family for centuries. What about all the poor people in China.....all the farmers?

It is really interesting how you forget those people who make up the bulk of China's 1 billion population.

google, do you have any photos of the new Guangzhou TV Tower? Not the old one, but the one that's under construction? It's going to be the world's tallest, right?

I'd love to see some of those.
