    Either a native speaker or one who is very close. It's hard to say on such a should file, but she sounded native to me.

    Default Very true, thanks for replying.

    She was the winner with highest score in NATIONAL ENGLISH SPEAKING COMPETITION 2004 held in China, reflecting the highest English-speaking level of Chinese college students last year.

    She said "Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen". Have you heard there was "and" in her speech?

    The 'gentleman' has a slightly strange stress, but that could be done by a native speaker- she is definitely of the very highest standard.
