AN ANCIENT CHINESE CIVILIZATION – ‘CHINA HORIZONS‘ 16/3/2005

Hello and welcome to another edition of “China Horizons” on China Radio International. I’m Tim Stoney in Beijing.

In today’s edition: We go first to Wuxi in east China’s Jiangsu province, a city credited as one of most dynamic cities in China, to explore the legends of this cradle of ancient Chinese civilization and the country’s contemporary national industry.

Top local official, Yang Weize, will share with us this city’s ups and downs during its development and tell us the dreams and ambitions of this energetic city.

Then our reporter, Zheng Chenguang, will take a look at the country’s efforts to protect its wetlands. Finally, in our travel segment of “On the Road”, we will go to Yinchuan, the capital city of north-west China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, to find out about a world lying underneath and above the relics of the ancient West Xia Kingdom. For all this and more, stay tuned to China Horizons.

CHINESE vs FOREIGN WINE BRANDS – ‘BUSINESS CHINA‘ 4/3/2005

For the second part of our wine industry report in China we decided to think outside the box. Yesterday we told you about about the industry and the challenges it faces to become respectable in the global market.

Well, we thought we would put Chinese wine to the test and give some of our colleagues at CRI a blind taste test. We are putting China’s best selling wine, Great Wall, against a gold medal winning Australian wine, Wolf Blass Red Label. We thought we knew how the results would turn out, but we were wrong. Joining us is Cam MacMurchy, Tim Stoney, and Yang Binyuan.
