  英语四级听力美文第48篇:Vancouver: a World—Famous Port City

  In 1986 when Vancouver, a Canadian port,had just celebrated its 100th birthday, the city'sdevelopments attracted world-wide attention. That a city is based on a harbor and developsflourishingly owing to the prosperity of the harbor is the very road to subsistence anddevelopment taken and experienced by many port cities. Thanks to 100 years of developmentand construction, Vancouver, which boasts a natural ice-free harbor, has become a world-famous port. It has regular passenger and cargo ships sailing to Asia, Oceania, Europe, andLatin America, the annual volume of freight handled amounting to 80 million tons. One third ofthe employed in the city are engaged in trade and transportation. The splendid achievementsof Vancouver are the fruits of its people's wisdom and diligence, comprising the contributionsof its various ethnic groups. Being a country with a vast territory and a sparse population, Canada is even larger than China, yet it has a small population of less than 30 million. For thisreason, absorbing immigrants from foreign countries is a national policy followed long andconsistently by the Canadian Government. It can be said that in Canada all people except theIndians are foreign immigrants. The only difference among them lies in the fact that somebegan to settle down there earlier than others. And Vancouver does particularly deserve beingcalled one of the world's multi-national cities that can be counted on one's fingers. Nowadays, of the 1.8 million residents in Vancouver, as many as half were not born in the city, and one ofevery 4 residents is an Asian. There are 250,000 Chinese living in Vancouver and playing adecisive role in its economic change and development. Half of these Chinese inhabitants havesettled in Vancouver only in the past five years. With so many Chinese living there, Vancouverhas become the largest Chinese community outside Asia.
