What Can Chinese Learn from the World?
Good morning. Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m contest No.X.
Today I feel great honor to stand on this stage again. I hope
my speech can arouse your resonance. What can Chinese
learn from the world?
Thanks to the China reform and open policy, it gave us
the access to expose to the world. And during the
international exchange, we Chinese can learn a lot such as
the advanced technology, culture and even some awareness.
Yes, awareness! Recently one piece of news titled fragrance-
free workplace attracted my attention and made me
consider the relationship between the individual and pubic.
It said that In Detroit, an American city, employees were
being told not to wear fragrance such as perfume and
aftershave to work after a woman proved that her
colleague’s perfume made it difficult for her to do work. Maybe to our Chinese people, this kind of action is quite
ridiculous and fussy. But it quite reveals that American
people think highly of their public awareness. I wonder
whether you observe the gentlemen in the American movies.
If they want to smoke, they always ask the people around
them, “Would you mind my smoking here.”
How about people’s public awareness in China?
Last winter holiday, when I went back home, I happened to a man in the crowded station, he sat beside me and kept
smoking. An ensure public security came to him and told
him to stop smoking. After the man left, he smoked again. I
think people smoking in the public places are quite common
in our China.
Comparing to the American people, our Chinese are quite lack of public awareness. As an individual, we do have
a lot of rights. While, as a member of the public, we cannot
ignore other people’s feeling and affect others. So my dear
ladies and gentlemen, let us improve our public awareness
and make contribution to building harmonious society
together. Thank you!
