Bosse Lindstrom, a Swede who has worked in China for many years: China's rapid development is impressive
Hello, My name is Bosse Lindstrom. I live in the city of Uppsala Län, Sweden. My first visit to Hong Kong year 2000 opened my story with China. Since then, I have been a regular visitor to this exceptional country.
My working and living experience in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shanghai make me love this country. I was living in Shanghai for three years, from late 2006, and saw the development with my own eyes. Even after I retired, I went to Shanghai every year for a few months to experience the vitality of the city.
China's rapid growth over the past twenty years has been nothing but impressive. Twenty years ago, there was only one subway in Shanghai. Today, the Shanghai subway is number one in the world on mileage, and it has almost twenty lines. Highways and high-speed trains can reach almost anywhere in China, which means that traveling is very convenient and fast. And still, every time I go to China, there will be surprises. You see electric cars everywhere, and 5G for your mobile, and a lot of other new things going on.
Last winter, when I was in China, I saw the Chinese under the leadership of CPC fought the Covid-19. There is no doubt that they won. Another achievement by the CPC is how they managed to reduce the poverty to zero. I want to send my congratulations to the CPC on their hundredth anniversary. Right now, I'm looking forward to go back to China soon, hopefully, very soon. So until then, bye-bye, or say, Zaijian.
