Shen Guiping: Across the world, regional autonomy has been implemented in many countries based on ethnic factors, such as Oran autonomous province in Finland, five autonomous regions in Italy, more than a dozen autonomous regions in Spain, and so on.

This may lead to the disconnection between the economic and social linkage development of autonomous regions and other regions of the country, which breeds a tendency of separation in these regions. Some rich autonomous regions like Catalonia in Spain want to get rid of the “burden” of other poorer regions. Some traditional settlements “abandoned” by the modern society seek to be separated from the other areas, such as 300 Indian reservations in the remote areas in the United States.

Anyway, my Comrades jokingly state that as I will be at leading from the front – I will not be fulfilling this role for very long!
