In this discussion, Yinuo Li will explore these three different Chinas—the global power, the developing country and the development partner.
Over the past 30 years, China has grown into a major world power, having built up the world’s second largest economy at unprecedented speed. The combination of a fast-growing pool of personal wealth, an emerging policy infrastructure and new social media technologies has propelled the rapid growth of philanthropy in the country. And yet, China remains a developing nation, 43 million of whose citizens still live in extreme poverty. There is also a third China—a source of innovation and a development partner. The world can learn a great deal from China’s remarkable track record in domestic poverty reduction. China’s growing innovation power, particularly in affordable technology and life sciences, gives it tremendous potential to contribute solutions to some of the greatest health and development challenges facing the world’s poor.
Please join us for this topical discussion on Thursday, April 27th from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.
