On 26 August 2016 I talked to a group 15 MBA students from Curtin University, including one professor.
Curtin University is an Australian public research university based in Bentley, Perth, Western Australia. The university is named after the 14th Prime Minister of Australia, John Curtin, and is the largest university in Western Australia, with over 50,000 students (as of 2014) at locations including Perth, Margaret River, Kalgoorlie, Malaysia and Singapore.
Location: Legend Beer, private room (Gongti Xi Lu). The group had a nice lunch there first.
Time 1 pm to 3 pm
Personal introduction on what is China is today, a different angle from what most speakers use.
I look back to what China was 35+ years ago, how it radically changed, I explain the today values in society, the role of “communism”, the role of government, a word on pollution issues (my book), and especially an analysis of the many challenges the country is facing today and the complexity of it all. It was followed by a Q&A covering a variety of subjects. Very active group with sharp questions.
The tour is organized by “The China Guide”.
