Beijing Rising
(Excerpts)

China’s emergence as an economic heavyweight after more than a decade of fast growth makes it likely to supplant Japan as the West’s main trade worry in Asia

中国在崛起


经过十多年的迅速发展,中国一跃成为一个举足轻重的经济强国,这使它有可能取代日本而成为西方国家在亚洲地区的贸易的主要忧患

If there is a road to China’s future, Highway 204 out of Shanghai is it. Along its two dusty lanes, local trucks and buses jockey with Cadillacs driven by financiers from Taiwan and Hong Kong investors. Migrant workers crowd the narrow shoulders. Factories line the highway, producing sneakers, toys, plastics, clothes, aircraft components and medical equipment. Eventually industry gives way to ricefields, which is being dug up to build still more factories. Cranes turn overhead as dump trucks and cement mixers nose onto the road. Outside the town of Jiading, one tractor-trailer leaves Asia’s largest container plant every three minutes, carrying goods bound for the Shanghai docks. The traffic on Highway 204 is so thick that the trip from Shanghai to Zhangjiagang –only 115 kilometers away –takes five hours.

如果有通往中国未来之路的话,那便是始自上海的204国道。在这尘土飞扬的双车道上,当地的卡车、公交车与港台投资者的金融家所开的卡迪拉克竞相向前进。外来打工者使狭窄的路肩显得拥挤不堪。公路两测,鞋厂、玩具厂、塑料厂、服装厂、飞机部件厂与医疗设备厂鳞次栉比。结果,大片稻田被工业区占用,用于建立更多的工厂。吊车在头顶转动,翻斗车与混凝土搅拌机在路上小心谨慎地行使。在嘉定镇外面,每三分钟就有一辆牵引拖车驶出亚洲最大的集装箱厂,向上海码头运货。204国道上的交通如此拥挤。以致于从上海到张家港这仅仅115公里的路程就需要5个小时。


Zhangjiagang is a commercial hub of Jiangsu, the fastest-growing province in China. China has the most dynamic economic in the world today. Its boom radiates from Guangdong, its richest province, but it has spread as far west as Xinjiang, where foreign investors are searching for oil and other natural resources. It is creeping inland, from Jiangsu to the cities of Congqing and Wuhan, where businessmen from Hong Kong and Taiwan are starting to spend billions of dollars to build factories. And it has penetrated the northeast, where the city of Shenyang, long a moribund center of state industry, is bustling with new private business, from trading companies to prostitution. Back in Beijing, officials at China’s state council, or cabin


et, are giddy with excitement –and exhaustion. “We don’t have people, we don’t have time,” says one. “Things are moving too fast.”
