Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information.
You should write at least 150 words.
The bar chart illustrates a numerical statistic of vehicle ownership in China. The bar chart reports the data, which is measured by the amount per thousand people according to the year.
In general, the number of vehicle ownership presents a trend of the increasing year by year. But there are two different situations of increasing speed in two periods. In the first period, from 1987 to 1993, the number of vehicles per thousand people increased slowly from two hundred to one thousand with roughly one hundred increments per year.
However, in the second period, the fast increasing speed presents a dramatic contrast to the slow increasing speed in the first period. In detail, the vehicle ownership per thousand people increased from one thousand in 1993 to four thousand in 1999, with an average of five hundred increments per year. Based on the year, it is reasonable to attribute the increase of vehicle ownership in China to the economic take-off in China.

Write about the following topic.
Rich countries should allow jobs for skilled and knowledgeable employees who are from poor countries. Do you agree or disagree?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
You should write at least 250 words.
Rich countries, especially the developed countries, are currently troubled with the lack of experienced and knowledgeable workers. However, in terms of the problem of whether should the rich countries allow jobs for employees from poor nations or not, there are different opinions. From my personal view, I agree that rich countries should permit receiving skilled, foreign workers.
On the one hand, rich countries need experienced employees to help them in staying ahead in many fields, especially the technological ones. Therefore, rich countries should permit employers to hire employees who are from poor countries. Moreover, skilled and knowledgeable employees from undeveloped countries are usually well-educated and willing to follow the laws, which means the crime possibility of this group of people can not be high. So it does not need to worry that crimes may be brought to local communities by workers who were born in poor nations.
On the other hand, it is reasonable for the locals to worry that the exotic people who are hired to work in different countries where have different cultural backgrounds and costumes may not adapt to the local atmosphere. For example, foreign employees in Japan always complain about the complex manners as well as honorifics. As a consequence, neither the employees nor employers are satisfied with each other.
However, from my personal view, the disadvantages of receiving foreign skilled workers do not outweigh the advantages of doing so. As people get along with each other with mutual understanding and respect for the culture of each country, I think the disadvantages can be overcome.
