Il meglio I think the Chinese culture is very strong to this day , these people respect its history and make it a lesson pro your day to day , reflecting on their means of education , production and social . A people that even with some severe governments , can be one of the major world powers , and one of the largest centers for large entrepreneurs who want to increase their richness . China in some decisions for its population just interfering with human rights , how can we follow the episode of employees of a bank receiving aggressions for their bad performance , we also have the example of how the country began a campaign to reduce the population , rather aggressive your advertising but in a way for them worked maintaining the desired for his government
