My View on Popular Stars Migrating to ForeigCountries

专八范文:

In recent years, many popular stars are reportedto have migrated to foreign countries.For example,a reputable actress last year swore under thenational flag of Singapore to become its citizen.She is claimed to have a Singaporean husband.Although those popular stars have the natural rightto choose their nationalities, and there are various reasons for them to make such decisions,once they have migrated to foreign countries, they are no more citizens of PRC. While somepeople hold that it is their natural rightto migrate to any foreign country, others categorizethose stars in the group of traitors in peacetime.

据报道,近些年许多明星都选择了移民。例如,去年一名著名女演员成为了新加坡公民。据说,她的丈夫是新加坡人。尽管,这些明星有选择国籍的权利,但是,他们选择移民的原因是多种多样的,一旦他们选择了移民,他们就将不再是中国公民。许多人认为选择移民是他们的权利,还有人认为这是一种叛国的举动。

As far as I am concerned, their naturalization from China to foreign nation is notacceptable. Firstly,I agree with many observers that those stars have intentions of evadingtaxes. According to the relevant articles in tax regulations, stars that have changed theirChinese citizenship will be entitled non-citizen taxpayer status provided the duration andresidence meet required standards. This policy indicates that their earnings outside China aretax deductible. Besides, since these stars are no longer Chinese citizens, they will receivepreferential treatments such as tax reduction within certain period if they establish their ownbusinesses in China. Though there are no sound evidences on the relationship between taxevasion and migration, we are still justified to claim that tax evasion has been taken intoconsiderationby those stars based on various news coverage and columnists’ observations.

我认为,移民是无法接受的。首先,我同意一些观察员的意见,认为他们是为了逃避交税。根据现行的税法规定,那些改变中国国籍的明星就将变成非公民纳税人,他们将会满足一些相关规定。这种政策指出他们在中国以外的收入将不再征税。此外,由于他们不再是中国公民,他们将获得更好的待遇,例如特定期间的减税政策,前提是他们在中国建立了自己的事业。尽管我们还没有移民和逃税之间的确凿证据,但是,我们依然可以说逃税是其中的一方面,上述是根据不同的新闻报道和观察所得出的结论。

Secondly, many stars take advantage of migration to have more babies. Due to theimplementation of family control policy in China, the majority of families shall only have onechild. Once they are still citizens of PRC, they are not permitted to have a second child.However, there are no such family control policies in many foreign countries. In somecountries, birth rates are on the decrease to such an extent that the authorities have toencourage young parents to have more babies by providing additional welfare programs.This point can be illustrated by a famous director’s case. He currently holds the passportissued by the government of the United States and fathers two lovely sons.

第二,许多明星利用移民生孩子。由于中国施行计划生育政策,大部分的中国家庭只有一个孩子。只要他们是中国国籍,他们就不允许生二胎。但是在国外却没有这样的政策。在许多国家,生育率正在不断下降,以至于政府不得不鼓励年轻人生更多的孩子,并提供更好的福利待遇。这一点能够从一位著名的导演身上找到证据。日前,他获得了美国护照,他有两个儿子。

On all accounts, those stars migrate to foreign countries for their own interests. But theyshould not forget the fact that it is China that gives them the opportunities to becomereputable. In return, it is their responsibility to repay their motherland, instead of desertingChina by changing their nationality in their own interests.

总之,这些明星是因为个人利益而选择了移民。但是,他们不应该忘记的是是中国给予了他们成名的机会。相反,他们有责任来报答中国,而不是为了自己的利益而抛弃祖国。
