Reference News Network reported on December 14 Korean media said that this year’s visit to South Korea and China tourists or reduced to last year’s level. Affected by this, South Korea’s gross domestic product (GDP) will also be reduced by 5 trillion won (about 30.3 billion yuan) or so. However, with the recent frequent warming of the relations between the two countries, if the Chinese tourists massively move to South Korea, the related losses may be reduced.
(Original title: Foreign media said India’s China model and Latin American development and trade: the fundamental difference can not go beyond China _ “Reference News” official website)
Reference News Network reported on December 14 Spain’s China Policy Watch website published on December 6 “Is India the next China for Latin America? In his article, author Alfredo Toro Adi said that Latin American trade with China increased at an average annual rate of 27% between 2003 and 2013 and bilateral trade volume reached 289 billion U.S. dollars in 2013. Moreover, in less than 14 years trade between the two countries increased 35 times, benefiting most from the South American countries, which are dominated by the export of natural resources. However, starting from 2013, China has shifted its focus to service and domestic demand, affecting the trade between China and Latin America, resulting in a drop in the prices of raw materials in Latin America. However, trade with Latin America and Latin America continued to grow at the same time as the trade with China decreased. Moreover, the growth rate of China and Latin America lagged behind that of the trade and trade between China and Latin America. According to the Inter-American Development Bank, the development potential of Indo-China trade is huge.
According to the article, as of now, the trade pattern between India and Latin America is a replication of the trade model between China and Latin America. India buys natural resources from Latin America and sells manufactured goods to Latin America. From 2003 to 2013, Latin American exports to India increased three-fold, while Latin American imports from India increased five-fold.
In addition, the growth rate of Indo-China trade during this period was similar to the growth rate of China-Latin America trade during the same period, but the starting point was much lower. The trade volume between Latin America and India increased 22 times from 2000 to 2014, but the bilateral trade volume in 2013 was only 43 billion U.S. dollars, which is only equivalent to 15% of the trade volume of Latin America and Latin America in the same period.
However, compared with the trade between China and Latin America, Latin America was the only one that maintained the trade surplus with India in the trade balance. In 2014, India’s import to Latin America was 29 billion U.S. dollars and its export value was 17.53 billion U.S. dollars. In the same year, China’s import to Latin America was 95.3 billion U.S. dollars with an export volume of 190.38 billion U.S. dollars.
The article said that it is clear that the Indo-China trade will greatly benefit Latin American countries, especially South American natural resource exporters. However, it remains to be seen whether the Indo-Iraqi trade really holds great potential as the Inter-American Development Bank predicts.
(Original title: China AI industry employment situation hot Overseas media: talent demand soared three times _ “Reference News” official website)
According to overseas media reports, although the outside world is worried that artificial intelligence (AI) will have an impact on human employment, the AI-related employment situation in China is quite hot. According to the latest report by China’s online recruitment firm, with the rapid development of artificial intelligence in China, the AI venture boom has emerged. The demand for AI-related talent in China in the third quarter of this year was nearly three times that of the first quarter of last year.
According to a Reuters report on December 12, the report pointed out that artificial intelligence is gradually replacing human jobs, especially those skilled, repetitive, and repetitive operations. Investment banking, proofreading / entry of two typical job postings showed a sharp year-on-year negative growth for three consecutive quarters.
According to the report, at present, artificial intelligence is in the stage of basic development and initial layout of an enterprise. As artificial intelligence continues to make breakthroughs in practice, more and more Chinese start-ups join the tide of artificial intelligence-related businesses. A development window has created a large demand for talent.
According to the report, the technical threshold of artificial intelligence is very high, and it is difficult to master it through short-term learning. The technical cow with academic knowledge and hands-on experience is the target for the enterprise. Knowledge-based, technical talents can be copied poor, substitutable poor, so companies are often in the pursuit of talent in a passive state, even more difficult to pay the situation of high salaries.
According to the report, those with AI skills have a salary range of 10,000-1,500,000 yuan at present, accounting for 40% of the total. With the company’s salary budget given, artificial intelligence personnel salary has great room for growth, corporate budget monthly salary of 15,000 -2.5 million, 25,000 -3.5 million recruitment gap larger.
It is reported that although the number of start-ups in China’s AI firms is relatively large, the absolute number of start-ups is much lower than the number of head start-ups. The stock of artificial intelligence talent mainly concentrated in the industry giants.
According to a website quoted by the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post on December 13, David Wei, an employee of an AI start-up in Beijing, attracted twice as many salaries and stock options as his employer This company that provides AI software for the legal profession.
The 27-year-old programmer said it was eight months ago. He now regrets not demanding a higher salary – his current annual salary is 400,000 yuan, excluding stock options – he is actively looking for better job opportunities.
Wei said: “My friend suggested that I stay here for at least a year for a minimum, so my CV does not look too bad.” Wei is a graduate student in Applied Mathematics Department of Harbin Institute of Technology. University and Peking University. However, since the beginning of this year, more than a dozen headhunters have called him to provide job opportunities. Friend suggestions seem too conservative.
Currently, about 300,000 people around the world have the advanced computer science and technology they need from driverless cars to home robots. Wei is one of them. Tencent Research Institute said in a report that the global market demand for AI experts in the order of millions.
Reported that the rise of AI was called the fourth industrial revolution, and the powerful supercomputer used massive amounts of data to identify patterns and learn autonomously, leaving people worried about unemployment. McKinsey u0026 Company predicts that by 2030, 800 million jobs worldwide may disappear with automation.

(Original title: Chinese students in the United States are facing psychological struggles: academic pressure does not want to live up to parents _ “Reference News” official website)
Reference News Network reported on December 14 The New York Times website on December 12 published by Helen High entitled “Chinese, studying in the United States, struggling,” the article. The following is an excerpt from the book:
In the fall of 2015, when the graduate year began, what did I think was a problem. Wake up in the morning, heart pounding. During the discussion class, the sentences I spoke were intermittent and the voices of my classmates were particularly harsh.
This sudden anxiety. I was studying in the United States for eight years after leaving Beijing. Over time, the isolation of Graduate School, the reading burden of the second language, and the pressure of distance between me and my relatives and friends in Beijing began to add up.
I was trying to figure out what exactly was going on and recalling some of the problems my Chinese students in the United States were having. These problems appear to be only minor ebb tides: missed classes, insomnia, sudden absence of group activity, long book posts filled with gloomy adjectives. There are 544,500 Chinese people studying overseas in 2016. A more recent report said there are 329,000 Chinese students in the United States alone. To these students, this opportunity is the result of extracurricular time spent preparing standardized tests for the United States, meaning liberation from China’s ruthless education system. However, these victories are also hidden dangers. A study published by Yale researchers in 2013 found that 45% of Chinese students reported depressive symptoms and 29% reported anxiety symptoms. This figure is alarming, because the general population in the United States depression and anxiety ratio was only about 13%.
Chinese students recognize common challenges in living abroad, such as language barriers and cultural differences, but they also mention that academic pressure is the most common cause of stress. Although they have all heard of liberal education, they are often surprised by the level of learning that is required to achieve good grades. Many Chinese people who value achievement only do not adapt to the education system that emphasizes process analysis and critical thinking.
Therefore, determination of the Chinese students’ success in helping their students succeed when the piles of notes recorded with great painstaking efforts fall short of theses, or when the questions of the history examination are about a hypothetical situation rather than the data chronology they bear in mind On the contrary, perseverance may deepen their sense of frustration abroad.
A difficulty often mentioned by Chinese students does not help alleviate this sense of frustration: it is difficult to form beneficial relationships with academic advisers. One study interviewed 19 Chinese graduate students at a university in the southwestern United States trying to understand their sources of stress. Many of them said it was difficult to build trust with advisers. Some people worry that language barriers may cause consultants to question their IQ. Some people admit that they can not sleep at night wondering about the mistakes they made in their communication, such as stuttering while talking or writing inappropriate terms to consultants.
These challenges may seem ordinary again, but many are no strangers to American students. However, Chinese students whose confidence in them is likely to be hit hard for infants and young children whose in-school academic performance is almost equal to their future and self-worth. The bright future of the freedom of knowledge often ends up with a feeling of anxiety that they simply can not imagine failure.
For most of these students, the cost of failure is not an illusion. Most Chinese international students pay full tuition fees. About 50-60,000 U.S. dollars a year is about 10 times the average disposable income of China’s urban population, often requiring wage-earners to dump everything or even sell their real estate. Parents involved did not hesitate to make those sacrifices in relation to the future of the only baby boy, but for American freshmen who conscientiously did their utmost to meet academic requirements, the burden was just as avalanche.
A Chinese student in Chicago made a popular comment. She told Surging News that she often wondered if her grades were worth the money her salaried parents spent on her education.
Like this student, it is hard to find comfort in the latest figures: 80.5% of returning overseas students earn less than US $ 1,500 per month (according to a report released by China and Global Think Tank in September and Zhaopin) About 9927 yuan), the average income is only slightly higher than the graduates of mainland universities.
Common difficulties make Chinese students seek help from each other in distress. However, because of the serious lack of well-trained psychologists in China, psychotherapy remains a vague concept for many students. A Yale University survey found that while the incidence of mental illness was alarming, 27% of Chinese students never heard of counseling at universities and only 4% of students used these services.
Someone who tried these services did not feel satisfied. In addition to prolonged waiting and limited interview time, there are more difficult issues. When language barriers are a source of stress and concern, how can Chinese students express their thoughts and emotions in a foreign language? When therapists may have just tried Panda Snacks, a chain of restaurants that run American-style Chinese fast food, how do they express their cravings and memories of Chinese food?
