Jackie Chan: Shanghai women should marry foreigners
www.chinaview.cn 2005-06-14 14:03:35

    BEIJING, June 14 -- Kung fu mega star Jackie Chan says a good way to promote Chinese culture worldwide would be to have more Shanghai women marry foreigners, a Hong Kong newspaper said Tuesday.

    "We can encourage more foreigners to marry Shanghai ladies so their children will be able to speak Chinese," Chan said at the Shanghai International Film Festival, the South China Morning Post reported on its front page.

    "It will help spread Chinese culture far and wide," he reportedly said.

    The paper reported that Chan didn't say why his proposal singled out Shanghai women, and he offered no suggestions about how to implement his plan.

    Chan also said he wanted to see more teahouses next to Starbucks coffee shops and more Chinese-style sesame seed cake shops next to McDonald's restaurants, the Post said.
