It is Not Just the Big, But the Biggest That Works in China
The Chinese economy is growing at an exponential rate and that is why more and more people are heading towards the country to opt for Chinese language programs and gain an insight into one of the world’s richest cultures.
China became the world’s largest economy by the end of 2009. By January 2010, China overtook Germany to become one of the foremost exporters of manufactured goods in the world. Recently the country has been nominated, unofficially of course, for the title of the world’s largest retailer.
China has gone from big to biggest in a matter of decades. If you participate in any of our study abroad programs, you will get plenty of opportunities to visit the fast-paced metropolises in China. These metropolises, full of swanky buildings with eye-popping architecture, will give you an insight into the dramatic technological development of China in various industrial sectors.
Recently the country built its biggest concrete mixture truck that was manufactured by Hongda. The manufacturers deployed high-end, domestic as well as international technologies in order to create this world-class truck, which is ready to be exported to any part of the world.
The industrial sector of China has grown by leaps and bounds and with that the nation’s energy consumption has increased as well. Today China has become the world’s largest consumer of energy, surpassing the United States of America, which is still the second largest consumer of energy. China is exploring new ways to harness more energy from a multitude of natural sources. The use of non conventional modes has also been taken into consideration. More and more windmills have cropped up in China, in no time, in order to keep pace with its monumental energy consumption. The same has been a trend with all the other developed countries of the world. With the pulse well understood, the Chinese economy has seen a lot investment in projects related to wind mills. China, now, is slowly evolving into the world’s largest manufacturer of equipments pertaining to windmills.
The country has recently planned to set up the world’s biggest solar power plant. It has already carved a niche in the construction sector, having built a 15 storey hotel in a span of only 2 days. Moreover, the country has got the world’s biggest shopping mall made. The South China shopping Mall in the city of Guangzhou is twice the size of its predecessor, the Mall of America in Minnesota U.S.A.
China’s ambition plan to connect its high speed railway to Europe is already underway. The project is almost on the verge of completion and once it is done and dusted, China will have the biggest infrastructure project pertaining to railways in the world. The country already boasts of the world’s largest three Gorges Dam. Studying abroad in China will certainly unravel some of its most mind-blowing design developments and will give you an insight into its phenomenal technological advancement that has taken the world by surprise.
