双语|到塔斯马尼亚去学习?Study in China’s Delicatessen?
前言
你会考虑到“中国的熟食店”去学习吗? 准确地说应该是到澳大利亚的塔斯马尼亚州,更准确地说,是去塔州的Launceston去学习。

塔斯马尼亚拥有一个绰号 — “中国人的熟食店”(熟食店通常供应高品质拥有品牌的食品,塔州向中国出口大量的农产品食品,因此得此美誉),在中国领导人习近平访问澳大利亚期间,他对塔斯马尼亚进行了特别的访问。他在那里考察和品尝了一些全国知名的农产品食品,包括牛肉,奶酪,威士忌还有葡萄酒。

在塔斯马尼亚州举行的州选举即将到来之际,联邦谭宝联合政府希望将刺激工作和经济增长的标语加入到塔斯马尼亚自由党政府的换届选举中。作为一个在基础设施建设方面不断发展,并且拥有成功的出口市场的地区,投资高等教育的确是一个显而易见的选择。

预料之举?
毫无疑问,谭宝政府将通过把塔斯马尼亚大学的主校区搬到中央商务区,来带动就业和经济复苏,没错,它的确在市中心有个校区。

这一举措对于多方来说都是赢家:房地产价值的快速增值;这也是一种解决人口结构的方法,将大量的年轻人带入人口老龄化集中区域;对餐饮业和旅游业来说都将是新的机遇;同时还能够改善交通基础设施以及住宿安置情况。

 

为了就业和经济的增长!
随着联邦资助项目的达成,塔斯马尼亚大学的建设也随即开工,这对塔斯马尼亚北部的教育和研究发展起到了重要的推动作用。

这笔投资将把塔斯马尼亚大学的主要校区迁往Launceston,这是塔斯马尼亚政府以及Launceston地方委员会在2017年4月达成的城市协议(City Deal)的核心内容。

作为城市协议的一部分,谭宝政府投资1.3亿澳元,塔斯马尼亚大学贡献6460万澳元,塔斯马尼亚州自由党政府出资6000万澳元,Launceston市政府出资540万澳元,共同使该项目的总资金达到2.6亿澳元。

大投资 大收益?
基于这庞大的投资金额,它还将吸引到一部分私人投资,而且可能会让该地区成为房地产升值的佼佼者,特别是在澳大利亚其他地方的房地产升值都在放缓的情况下。

该项目通过提供更好的高质量教育机会,解决了目前Launceston面临的严峻的经济和社区建设方面的挑战。通过投资教育将是支持生产力、保持长期经济增长和社会福利的根本。

坐落于市中心Inveresk的塔州大学Launceston教学和研究校区,以及其相关的活动将更加方便可及。该项目将为塔斯马尼亚大学的国内外学生提供更有深度的学习体验。鉴于塔斯马尼亚的知名度,中国有可能成为国际学生的主要来源地。最终,该项目将会为当地带来更多的人才和机会,并支持当地企业和社区的相互交流。

该计划是 Launceston 城市协议的重要组成部分之一,其目的是在未来五年内将 Launceston 建设成为澳大利亚最宜居和最具创新活力的偏远地区城市之一。

政府在这个项目上的投资意味着他们认识到现代基础设施建设对于整个北塔斯马尼亚州的教育质量、研究、科学和技术方面发展的重要性。

重要因素
该项目的关键要素包括在Launceston的Inveresk地区新成立的“定制校区”,它将提供现代化、世界级的教学、学习和研究设施,特别是在科学、技术、工程和数学(STEM)学科方面。

建立一个在Launceston的应用科学和设计学院,将支持该地区未来的科学和研究发展,促进新商业产品和服务的产生。

而鉴于塔斯马尼亚州的面积相对较小,Launceston地区便可以很好地涵盖塔斯马尼亚的所有自然竞争优势。

我的想法

如今,我们生活在一个到处都是数字资源的互联世界里,然而我们也应该关注一些其他趋势,特别是由大批中国和印度国际学生的涌入所带来的。

除了就业和经济增长,我们还是世界上最成功的多元文化社会不是吗? 为什么不在Launceston发展金融科技(Fintech),并将它与全世界连接在一起。如果我们能从我们的政治家那里了解到更多的愿景,更多关于如何实现这座城市的野心,那就更好了。随着塔斯马尼亚的州竞选活动的临近,即便它还没有真正开始,一些聪明的和一些具有挑衅性的意见都已经显现。我希望澳大利亚的绿党将成为这些推动力量之一,而不是试图阻止进步和发展,希望他们更多参与到创新当中,在智能领域提供远见,并带来一些光明的思想火花。

澳大利亚在完成任务的方面一直有点落后,这一迹象在太平洋岛屿上表现得最为明显,那里的人们越来越多地关注中国,而不是向澳大利亚寻求援助和发展协助。如果在未来,Launceston能成为澳大利亚成功完成发展目标的证明,那就太好了!

Study in China’s Delicatessen?

Would you consider to study in China’s Delicatessen, to be more precise in the Australian Island State of Tasmania, to be totally specific the city of Launceston?

Tasmania got its nickname “China’s Delicatessen” as legend will have it during the visit of China’s Leader Xi to Australia when he made a special side visit to Tasmania. Where he inspected and tasted some of the states famed produce, from beef to cheese and whisky to wine.

With a state election coming up in Tasmania the Federal Turnbull Coalition Government is keen to put its mantra of jobs and growth to work for the re-election of the Liberal Tasmanian Government. As an export success with infrastructure potential, higher education is an obvious option.

 

No surprise?

The Australian Government is committed to ensuring Australia is, and continues to be, a globally competitive marketplace.No surprise, the Turnbull Government will drive jobs and economic revitalisation in Launceston through the game-changing relocation of the University of Tasmania’s main campus to Central Business District, yes it has one.

A winner in many ways:rapid appreciations of real estate values;a demographic fix by bringing in lots of young people into an ageing population; there is also the food and tourism aspect;and the opportunity for improved transport infrastructure and more accommodation.

Jobs and growth indeed!

With the Commonwealth funding agreement for the project now settled with the University of Tasmania, construction can commence on this significant boost to education and research in Tasmania’s north.

The investment to relocate the University of Tasmania’s main campus to Launceston is the centrepiece of the Launceston City Deal agreed with the Tasmanian Government and Launceston City Council back in April 2017.

As part of the City Deal the Turnbull Government is investing $130 million in the project, with the University of Tasmania contributing $64.6 million, the Tasmanian State Liberal Government $60 million and the City of Launceston $5.4 million, bringing the total project funding to $260 million.

 

Good numbers?

Given those numbers, it will attract private investment as well and probably become a standout performer in the property appreciation stakes that elsewhere in Australia have been moderating if not retreating.

The project addresses critical economic and community challenges currently facing Launceston by providing better access to quality higher education. This is fundamental in supporting productivity, long-term economic growth and social well-being in the community.

The University’s Launceston education and research campuses and activities will be more accessible in the central city site of Inveresk. The project will deliver an enhanced learning experience for domestic and international students, at the University of Tasmania. China is likely to rank high as a source of students given Tasmania’s name recognition. The result is bringing more skills and opportunities to the region and supporting local businesses and community engagement.

The initiative is an essential part of the Launceston City Deal and positions Launceston to become one of Australia’s most liveable and innovative regional cities within the next five years.The Government’s investment in this project recognises the importance of modern infrastructure in the delivery of quality education, research, science and technology across northern Tasmania.

 

Key elements!

Key elements of the project include a new fit-for-purpose campus at Inveresk in Launceston providing modern, world-class teaching, learning and research facilities, particularly in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Establishing a Launceston-based Institute for Applied Science and Design that supports the future of science and research in the region that can foster the creation of new commercial products and services.

Given the relatively small size of Tasmania, the reach from Launceston could well encompass all of Tasmania’s natural competitive advantages.

My opinion

Now that we live in a connected world where digital resources are ever present we also should look at some of the trends that could be generated, especially by the influx of a large international student cohort from China and India.

Apart from jobs and growth, are we not the most successful multicultural society in the world? Why not Fintech in Launceston, connected to the world. It would be great if we had some more vision from our politicians as to how some of these ambitions could be achieved. With the Tasmanian state election campaign looming if it has not already started some clever and provocative ideas should come to the fore. I hope the Australian Greens Party will be one of these forces that rather than trying to stop progress and development, will engage with innovation and foresight in the intellectual competition and bring some bright sparks.

Australia has been lagging behind in terms getting things done, the indications are nowhere more obvious than in the Pacific islands where people are looking increasingly to China rather than Australia for aid and development assistance. It would be great if in the future Launceston could be an example how well Australia and Australian developments can do!
