Ashley... That is a very good question concerning Mainland

China. After teaching Tourism English in China for the past 4

months, I have found that many of the growing cities in China

(almost all) are port cities located near the ocaean or a

water-way. I do not know if other locations of China has produced

Nobel prize winners, but do think the Mainland (inland) is not

developed as well as other parts of China. After the Mainland does

develop enough, it may well prodcue a Nobel Prize winner. It also

depends on what type of prize (Nobel subject) you are referring to.

Many of the Nobel prize winnners are individuals that have made a

large contribution to helping make the world a better place, or has

made a unique scientific discovery. I am not familiar with the

Nobel total system. Someone may have already made a discovery to

warrant the prize but it has not been translated into a language

that the world can understand. But with the fast development, China

is catching up with the rest of the world. Some of my students in

Business English wanted me to teach them about creativity. That may

have some reasons for not having a prize winning person, but I

think it is more the language barrier and culture barrier that is

in the way, the Chinese minds are not dumb, just quiet. So you are

dealing with smart individuals but some have a

reservation/hesitiation to speak the English. China is currently

joining many countries to improve the environment and working

closely with African countries to help in their development. Also

they are working with N. Korea to reduce the friction in the world.

What other country in the world could yield that type of power with

N. Korea? So my answer is it depends on what category you are

referring to and predicting that it could happen, but the country

is growing and needs to spend much of its resources on internal

problems improving the lives of its own citizens before trying to

cure a world problem. You are welcome to contact me for a futher

discussion. I do not know where you are from. I am from the US with

years of business experience, always wanting to teach and for many

years interested in Asian cultures and countries. I finally made it

to doing what I wanted to do for many years. You ask an interesting

question so I hope to hear from you to maybe discuss more... Good

Luck Bill
