News from China

When I started this blog. I did it for Lydia. It's evolved into a communications link for family and friends...and I want to keep that aspect going...but I also want to get back to Loving Lydia's roots. Information for my child:

So here we go baby. This is what's going on in China. Stuff you might be interested in someday.

Eight Do’s and Don’t’s
Chinese President Hu Jintao recently called on the whole nation and particularly young people to adopt the “socialist concept of honor and disgrace,” also known as “Eight Do’s and Don’t’s.” The list reads: “Love, do not harm the motherland; Serve, don’t disserve the people; Uphold science; don’t be ignorant and unenlightened; Work hard; don’t be lazy and hate work; Be united and help each other; don’t gain benefits at the expense of others; Be honest and trustworthy, not profit-mongering at the expense of your values; Be disciplined and law-abiding instead of unruly and lawless; Respect plain living and hard struggle, do not wallow in luxuries and pleasures.”

CHINESE President Hu Jintao will visit the United States in April, at the invitation of President George W. Bush, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang yesterday, Xinhua news agency reported.

Hu and Bush will exchange opinions on important international and regional issues, Qin said.

The two countries agreed on the visit last year to increase mutual trust and to develop future partnerships.
