Polish food enterprises attend CEEC Expo

With the second session of the CEEC Expo coming in over a month, some businesses of central and eastern European countries have come to Ningbo for an early preparation. On May 4, the 17 Polish food enterprises, led by the Trade Promotion Center of the National General Chamber of Commerce of Poland, attended the Food Trade Cooperation and Docking Fair co-hosted by Ningbo Trade Promotion Committee.

The fair is one of the series food promotion activities co-sponsored by the Trade Promotion Center of the National General Chamber of Commerce of Poland, the Meat Food Association of the Republic of Poland and the Polish Association of Fruit and Vegetable Producer Groups. Ningbo Trade Promotion Committee organized over 80 people to attend the fair, from 67 enterprises including such food purchasers as supermarkets, hotels and restaurants as well as some enterprises from the fruit, vegetable and meat product associations. At the fair, the meat, fruit and vegetable products were well received by the local enterprises. Some hoped to serve as agents for the "green" meat products such as the sausage and ham, and conduct in-depth cooperation by introducing the food production technologies from Poland.

It is also learned from the fair that to promote the sales of Polish food products in China especially in Ningbo, the Ministry of Agriculture of Poland will appoint officials to lead over 40 food enterprises to attend the second session of the CEEC Expo. "Poland is an important food producer in the CEEC area. The trade fair has made great achievements and will further promote the success of the coming CEEC Expo." said Ca Lida, Director of Ningbo Trade Promotion Committee.

Senior High School Entrance Exam May Reform

It is learned from relevant department that Ningbo Senior High School Entrance Examination may have great reforms by introducing “Man-Machine Dialogue Testing of English Listening and Speaking Abilities”, which means Spoken English will be added into English Examination.
According to responsible persons from Ningbo Education Examinations Authority, it is an irresistible trend to introduce “Man-Machine Dialogue Testing of English Listening and Speaking Abilities”. But it hasn’t been decided on which exact year the reform will be carried out. 
Man-Machine Dialogue relies on computers and internet technology to perform and manage examination. To make it simple, present examinations require students to read the test papers and then mark the answer in answer sheets. However, students only need to read test papers in computer and answer questions by using the mouse and keyboard after implementing the Man-Machine Dialogue Examination. 
Currently, listening test is done with the written exam in Ningbo. In future, the speaking exam will be tested alone. 
“Spoken English has always been a neglected part in English education so that students’ speaking ability is weakened. To change this situation, we must take the first step to reform English education.” a responsible person from Ningbo Education Examinations Authority said. Many cities in China have already carried out this Man-Machine Dialogue Examination.  
From Wenzhou’s experience, adding speaking test into Senior High School Entrance Examination can effectively improve students’ listening and speaking abilities. 
In addition, Man-Machine Dialogue can reduce students’ emotional fluctuation, safeguard examination privacy and improve work efficiency by testing a large number of students in the same time. 
At present, Ningbo is carrying out research work on “Man-Machine Dialogue Testing of English Listening and Speaking Abilities”. Junior high schools in Jiangdong District have tried out this experiment, laying a solid foundation for later work.
