  • DATE / TIME:
    2016•02•02    18:30 - 19:30

    On 2 February 2016, UNU will host “Public Administration Priorities and Challenges in China”, a conversation with Dr Lan Xue, Dean of the School of Public Policy and Management at Tsinghua University, Beijing. This event will start at 6:30 p.m. at UNU Headquarters in Tokyo.

    China’s multi-decade high economic growth levels, significant demographic shifts and environmental challenges have attracted much international public attention, not least because hundreds of millions of Chinese citizens have been lifted out of poverty. It is now restored to great power status.

    Dr Lan Xue will join UNU Rector David M. Malone for a conversation exploring the opportunities and potential pitfalls that beckon for public policy in China in the years ahead.

    The UNU Conversation Series aims to foster audience participation: you are encouraged to engage with the speakers during the conversation and at the reception that will follow, where all audience members are invited to enjoy the food and drinks that will be served while exchanging ideas and making new contacts.

    Please note that this event will be in English only; Japanese interpretation will not be provided. Advance registration (by 1 February) is required. Please click on the REGISTER button above to access the online registration page.
