From the bar char given above, we can observe that the ownership of houses
in China experienced some changes during the past several years. The proportion
of state-owned houses decreased sharply by almost 50% from 70% in 1950’ to 20%
in 1990’. On the contrary, during the same period, the percentage of private
houses increased rapidly from 30% to 80%.
The bar chart reveals that there exists an opposite trend in the development of state-owned and private houses ownership. What exactly contribute to this phenomenon? Reasons can be listed as follows: for one thing, the authorities have issued some preferential policies to the development of private houses industry. Additionally, with the improvement of financial status and purchasing power, citizens in mounting numbers can afford to buy private houses which were deemed expensive. Last but not least, people’s decision to buy a house can also be ascribed to the power of so-called “group dynamics”: when members of our social networks own their private house one after another, we unconsciously imitate them , of course, if we have enough money.
The continual growth of private houses is a symbol of the improvement of people’s living standard. However, the authorities should also place a value on the restriction of houses’ price. Otherwise, it will one day be a obstacle of the rapid and sound development of economy.
From the curve chart given above, we can observe that the number meals of
fast food and sitdown restaurant experienced some changes during the past
several years. The number of meals of fast food increased slowly from 20 in 1970
to nearly 30 in 1980. From 1980 to 2000, it ascended rapidly from 30 to
approximately 90. On the contrary, when observing the statistics of sitdown
restaurant meals, we can find that it increased slowly from 20 in 1970 to
roughly 50 in 2000.
The curve chart informs of the phenomenon that there exists some difference in the development of fast food and sitdown restaurants. What exactly contribute to this phenomenon? Reasons can be listed as follows: for one thing, with the pace of modern life quickening, people barely have much time to waste in lining up for restaurant meals, on the contrary, fast food meals can do help busy people save a great deal of time. Additionally, the authorities have issued some preferential policies to protect and encourage the rapid extension of fast food industry , thus the public can buy fast food at shops scattering around the city. On the contrary , people in diminishing numbers are willing to eat at sitdown restaurant. They think that eating at restaurant is always time-consuming and inconvenient. Besides, food at restaurant is comparatively expensive than fast food.
by observing the trend of the past, we may forecast that the number of fast food meals will continue to rise in the years to come. However, we should also take the detrimental impact of fast food into consideration. Do remember that fast food is one of the main causing factors of diseases such as heart attack, obesity and diabetes.
From the pie chart given above, we can observe that it reflects the
statistics of investment in Beijing from different countries and regions. The
proportion of investment from Hong Kong accounts for 44%, ranking first. The
percentage of investment from other 23 countries and regions ranks second among
all, making up 20.8 %. Japan occupies 19.2%, ranking third. When it comes to the
U.S.A., we can find that it takes up 16% , 28% lower than that of Hong Kong.
The pie chart reveals the phenomenon that most of the investment in Beijing stem from Hong Kong. What exactly contribute to this phenomenon? Reasons can be listed as follows: in the first place, China's investment policy provide preferential treatment to investors from Hong Kong. They are more likely to be immune to high taxes and other charges. Moreover, quite a few Hong Kong investors hold the opinion that, with the same language, cultures, traditions and customs, mainland is an ideal and promising investment resort which will be bound to generate considerable profits. Last but not least, it will not take a long time to commute between Hong Kong and Chinese mainland, the region advantage also has attracted more Hong Kong investors to locate their companies and factories in the mainland.
The public can benefit a lot from Hong Kong investment. People can buy products with superior quality at a comparatively cheaper price. However, balancing the investment proportion from different countries is also a issue needed to be put at the top of relevant administration departments’ agenda. Thus, people can be exposed to a greater variety of products and have more purchasing options.
