California is a state, on the Pacific Ocean.
Washington is a state north of California also on the Pacific coast. Its largest city is Seattle (I think) which is where Boeing makes its planes.
...


Easy to remember - Washington DC is after George Washington

while Washington produces delicious Washington Apples!!!
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards

Never had these "Washington apples" of which you speak.

I would imagine that Washington state also took it's name from old George.

Remember Washington DC is "District of Columbia" and it's on the Atlantic side where Columbus landed.

thank u, Mr. Emu for the location of "Washington state"...and it's key industry, the BOEING Aircraft company!

And Mr. M Jackson, in the past, most trades came from North East Atantic to Europe. So California and Washington state were BACKWATERS!
As it SICHUAN nowadays.

Imagine China MILITARY BUDGET should be 1.5% of the GNP employing just 0.15% of the populace as soldiers (probably the lowest ratio in the world), and another 0.3.5% dependence. Procurement of parts and new weapons should be around 0.75% GNP of the budget. If Sichuan gets the buik of the aerospace indutry.....or maybe 0.25% of GNP....it will be tremendous for the 100 million Sichuanese and the some 100 million Chinese people in the hinterland of Sichuan.

now 2006   military budget is Rmb312 billion
in 2025       military budget could be US$230 billion!!!!

If Sichuan government spend time to build up RESORTS, for top 1% in China, Central Asia, Tibet, Persia, South East Asia.
Have more Sichuan airline company....with "No Frills flight"....
Set up a Sichuan "TAX FREE" CITY.....for banking.....

You just have to have some imagination!

A Harmonious China would need 4 super centers.......
The Supercenter would have 500 million people....
the Neighbouring Industrial province should have another 500 milliion....
while the hinterland would have the remaining third of the population.....


I CANNOT IMAGINE not choosing Sichuan, site of the SHU LEGACY as the 4th supercenter!!!!!

In fact, especially Mr. Pandamonium....being from Sichuan

.....Sichuan provincial government should start to have "A popular Skiing sports events" with "Million Rmb prizes"....to popularized Sichuan!

Build a beautiful CBD....(central business district)
Attract investors from Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou-Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur-Singapore to set up Entertainment outlets etc.


As a Tourist site would be 2nd step

HK is the financial center of asia while shanghai is the financial center in china.
HK is the traditional one while shanghai is a new soaring one.
HK had international background while shanghai had a great potential with china's booming economy.
I love HK and also I take a positive view on shanghai .
