Chapter 23 Increasing Number of Foreign Experts
David: The number of foreign experts in China has risen sharply. Can you explain why?
You: China has opened its doors to foreigners because we need experts to bring over advanced technology to help our country develop.
David: So you are saying that recently, as the country develops, there is an increasing need for experts. Do you think foreign experts are only good for technological advances?
You: They are also helpful in creating global connections between China and the world, enhancing friendships between nations and advancing world peace. But the funny thing is that we can’t tell who are the real experts, so we need some way of testing who the real experts are.
David: Well, what countries do these foreign experts come from?
You: You name it. They come from a lot of countries, such as America, countries in Europe, and even other Asian countries, such as Japan and Korea.
David: I see. Most foreign experts are from developed countries.
You: As China develops rapidly with an aim to become a stronger nation in the world, she needs more experts from different backgrounds to come and share their knowledge in order to keep pace with modern science and technology.
