中国工人入选时代周刊 Chinese Worker Selected as Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”

Dec. 30, 2009

中国工人入选时代周刊 (Zhōngguó gōngrén rùxuǎn shídài zhōukān) Chinese Worker Selected as Time Magazine's "Person of the Year"  

On Dec.16, 2009, "the Chinese worker" ended up ranking second in the selection of Time magazine's prestigious "Person of the Year 2009." They were the only group selected. Time magazine commented: "Chinese workers are '勤奋 (qínfèn) diligent,' '努力 (nǔlì) hardworking' and '勇敢 (yǒnggǎn) brave,' they may not actually understand how important they are to the '稳定(wěndìng) stability' and '发展 (fāzhǎn) development' of China's economy, but they are the ones who lead the world to economic '恢复 (huīfù) recovery'." Chinese workers successfully "保八 (bǎo bā)," maintained 8% annual growth rate of the Chinese economy in 2009. One year ago, many thought such a figure in 2009 was a pipe dream. But China has done it. Who deserves the credit? It is the tens of millions of "中国工人 (Zhōngguó gōngrén) Chinese workers." Chinese workers contribute greatly to the development of China and deserve Time's recognition.
