Title: Describe the ways in which China has more contact with the outside world than it used to have.


1
Describe the ways in which China has more contact
with the outside world than it used to have.
2
Trade
  • The scrapping of a global tariff and quota system
    for textiles at the start of this year opened the
    door for China's low-cost producers to flood
    markets in Europe, the US and elsewhere.
  • this increased trade with the west especially in
    areas such as textiles and footwear

3
Trade
  • In some categories of goods, Chinese imports so
    far in 2005 have increased five to seven times
  • In response, the EU agreed quotas on the
    hardest-hit goods

4
World trade Organisation
  •   China is now a member of the World Trade
    Organisation
  • Every member must abide by its ruling
  • Membership has attracted foreign investment and
    more Chinese citizens are travelling abroad

5
special economic zones
  •  special economic zones encourage foreign
    investment, bringing much needed jobs and
    knowledge to the areas.
  • In the south, zones were created giving investors
    tax concessions in exchange for revenue and
    technical knowledge.
  • These successful zones are in the fast-growing
    cities on the coastline.

6
special economic zones
  • Special Economic Development Zones are also
    springing up deep in the interior of China
  • regional governments are going all-out to attract
    foreign investment to boost economic growth

7
communications
  •     The Chinese people are also seen many more
    products at a lower price and sectors such as
    telecommunications which were once highly
    protected are opening up.

8
communications
  •    International media and internet has opened
    China up to foreign influences
  • most locals prefer Disneyland to the Ming
    decorative arts.
  • Just as the "open door" reform policy has
    brought economic opportunities, so it has brought
    cultural ones.
  •  

9
Western Culture
  • The Western brands in the smart new shopping
    plazas use not just Western writing but Western
    models in their window displays.

10
Western Culture
  • Vogue is among more than 100 foreign magazines
    now available in China
  • They are popular with the emerging and
    increasingly affluent middle class for the latest
    fashion tips and news about Hollywood
    celebrities.

11
Western Culture
  • Changes on the television screen have been even
    more dramatic.
  • Viewers once offered only the achievements of the
    air force can now watch Friends and Premiership
    football, or home grown versions of Graham Norton
    and Oprah Winfrey

12
Western Culture
  • Coming up in the autumn schedules will be
    Desperate Housewives
  • although what the peasants of Hunan or the
    factory workers of Guangdong will make of the
    goings-on in Wisteria Lane remains to be seen.
