让更多的澳大利亚人知道中国的基层民主模式

供稿:阿德莱德大学孔子学院 李潇娇
“中国的义务教育已经推广很多年了,一些发达地区都已经开始12年全面义务教育。”
“到2011年,98%的中国公民都享受到医疗、养老保险。”
“中国农村的基层政府多数都是村民直选决定。”
 
9月18日,阿德莱德大学孔子学院特别邀请香港中文大学政治与行政学系主任、清华大学长江讲座教授王绍光先生举办题为“中国的民主模式”的公共讲座。
 
作为第六届“澳亚艺术节”的重要内容,本次讲座由孔子学院与阿德莱德节庆中心联合举办,在阿德莱德艺术中心举行。讲座由孔子学院院长高默波教授主持,阿德莱德大学社会科学学院院长Gregory McCarthy、孔子学院中方院长王绍斌等170余位观众出席讲座。
 
在本次讲座中,王绍光教授主要就澳大利亚人不太熟悉的中国社保问题、教育问题、基层选举等问题进行了详细介绍和深入分析。他介绍了中国政府逐步取消农业税的政策、完全义务教育的实施;截至2011年98%的中国城乡居民已经享受医疗、养老保险,社会保障财政支出占GDP的比重不断增加。另外,基层选举方面,村民委员会直选已经进行多年,城市也有居委会选举。伴随互联网业的飞速发展,中国网民数量已接近5.4亿,互联网普及率达到40%,网络舆论的力量越来越大。讲座之后,王教授就观众提问进行了回答。
 
享有国际声誉的“澳亚艺术节”是一个展示澳洲和亚洲各民族艺术成就的重大艺术节,在每年9月份举办。在本届艺术节上,除了由阿德莱德大学孔子学院主办的年度公共讲座 ,组委会还特别邀请了中国著名作曲家谭盾与阿德莱德交响乐团现场演奏《武侠三部曲》,在南澳当地引起轰动。
