"Has autonomous driving been promoted on a large scale in China?" "At present, experiments are still being carried out in designated areas of big cities such as Beijing. I believe that the scope of application will become wider and wider in the future." This is the Chinese ambassador to Iran on the 21st. At the "Extraordinary Decades of China in the New Era" photo exhibition at the museum, the visiting local students had a question and answer session with Chinese Ambassador Chang Hua.
More than 30 teachers and students from the Confucius Institute at the University of Tehran in Iran were invited to visit the Chinese Embassy. Chinese Ambassador to Iran Chang Hua led the teachers and students to visit the exhibition, and introduced in detail the great achievements of the Chinese people led by the Communist Party of China.
The students majoring in Chinese at Iran’s top universities focused on their expressions and asked questions as they walked. When the students came to a picture showing cars driving among tall buildings in the city, they didn't see the mystery at first glance. Chang Hua pointed to the cars in the picture and said that these are self-driving cars. Later, the students noticed the caption of the picture: "China's autonomous driving and smart car industry is developing rapidly, realizing the full implementation from technology research and development to application, providing favorable conditions for the convenience of production and life. The picture shows the high-level autonomous driving demonstration zone in Beijing Self-driving cars on the road."
What impressed Mbina Moradhani, a third-year student majoring in Chinese, was a picture showing a herd of wild elephants sleeping soundly during migration. She learned from the caption of the picture that in March 2020, 17 Asian elephants in the Xishuangbanna National Nature Reserve in Yunnan collectively moved north. During the migration that lasted more than ten months, people quietly avoided wherever the elephant herds went.
The story of this group of Asian elephants, Moradhani had previously learned about it through news reports and other channels, but the Chinese people on the migration route of Asian elephants "give way" to Asian elephants. This is the latest detail she obtained from this photo exhibition , so that she has a more comprehensive understanding of China's protection of wild animals.
She told reporters that if China's prosperity is respectable, the story of the Asian elephants shows a "lovely side" of China.
Among the visiting students, 31-year-old Sepeher Vladnia is the oldest. He had previously obtained a bachelor's degree in economics and worked in a bank. With more social experience, he visited the photo exhibition while exploring China's development experience that Iran can learn from.
"China has played a key role in global influence in many fields in the past ten years, and has formed a lot of experience worthy of learning by developing countries. The Iranian people are very interested in China's latest developments. Iran needs to strengthen ties with China and learn from China. specific development strategies.” He said that learning Chinese can better realize one’s own value and strengthen exchanges with the Chinese people.
Li Mei, the Chinese director of the Confucius Institute at the University of Tehran, said that local students value this visit very much. “Compared with learning about China from textbooks, visiting the photo exhibition and communicating with the Chinese ambassador face-to-face can help students understand China more intuitively. The latest look, and at the same time stimulate their greater enthusiasm for learning Chinese."
