friends of norman macrae
I think you know that story of how girls built bangladesh was father's last project- and that 30 years earlier his survey of china had demanded we all help china open source jobs creating education Curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution -77 China Blossoms -it also bridged nicely my maternal grandfather's (sir kenneth kemp, uncle david's father) mistakes in 25 years of mediating mahatma gandhi and his last job the legalese of india's independence 


unfortunately i messed up in taking 20 youth to celebrate muhammad yunus in dhaka and sampling 2000 of his books, 10000 dvds, 15000 issues of journal- our 2 big projects anchored out of glasgow
-college of last mile health servants
-adam smith scholars and yunus rewrite poverty ending economics and education systems

My error was sir fazle abed of brac (Tahsinah's leader) should have been celebrated worldwide as youth world's most connected educator- ironically he's also an alumni of glasgow university who's principal is an italian who doesnt seem to understand the connections between jim kim and pope francis and sir fazle abed and xi jinping- ironically fathers main italian translator of entrepreneurial revolution in 1976 was romano prodi who went on not seeming to understand the franciscan way at the european union the network whose birth dad was only journalist of at messina onceinageneration



so is there a way to reconnect things in the bottom up collaboration sequence that I utterly failed to do

if you track the brand dna of how brac (and all the greatest bottom up partners -practical professions , and system designers like dads friend george soros in sustainability goals education and financial inclusion) became the most collaborative end poverty microfranchise network long before digital  mobility and how this  all started with infant and maternal health

first scaling oral hydration and then other basic solutions to not lettting mothers and infants die evolved into creating 100000 para health village women servants as the core of brac's grassroots human networks, soon accompanied by 40000 literacy montessori village school that first trained enough illiterate mothers before focusing on prinary children  

By turning mothers into life- savers of infants oral rehydation was the cultural magic that ended the male muslim (i mean extreme rural poverty) culture that village mothers as the ,most isolated people in the world were locked away to produce 10 children in hope that 2 boys world survive- and so girls life expectancy went up and by having maximum of 3 children they could start to be income earning provided they were trained around microfranchises around which sir fazle redesigned value chain of agricultural markets (first partnering with china on bottom up rice productivity) so that smallest poorest hardworking ladies could exchange value  (in fact sir fazle modeled all of his bottom up learning networks on franciscan paulo freire as later did paul farmer and jim kim though they claim more of a faith inspiration than friere's education one)
-we urgently need all of above linked in before argentina g20 in 2018 - that way any walls cauised by brexit or trump will collapse as china's 1.3 billion taoist people takes over bottom-up editing in chief of the open learning collaborations with worldwide youth (half the world who are under 30) and their sustainbility goals
=====================
few more jottings on last mile medical future history which bbc failed to celebrate at opening of olympics with berners lee (www hall of fame for 2 most   microeconomicsits - women -florence nightingale ; men berners lee)

by the time paul farmer and jim kim founded partners in health 1987 as medical anthropologist alumni of harvard who used haiti village as their student exchange lab - sir fazle had already found that ending tuberculosis was best served by those who were immune because they had survived tuberculosis- dad's friend george soros sponsored farmer and kim to start taking this solution from latin america (peru) to russian prisons where dissidents (ie gorbachev;s friends were now chained) and later to liberia a country soros partnered with brac in starting to develop after the genocide was over- without that very basic infrastructure of last mile health ending ebola would have been even harder

i understand that localising segmented life saving health services is opposite process of requiring total qualifications to be  a 5* nurse or doctor

actually sir fazle had first tried and failed to adapt china's barefoot doctor program- there  werent enough doctors in bangladesh of the 1970s and the vast majority of those were not franciscans who wanted to live in villages with no electricity, no communications and most risk of plagues

it shocks me to the core that this number 1 curriculum of village jobs and bottom up professional service was nowhere taught in rich nations when i followed yunus around to 50 university campuses mainly in usa and uk in 2008 which is why we  accidentally invested in yunus to take this to next level with his then core leadership of village mobile phones 

ironically gordon browns chief of staff has been asking me how does sir fazle abed want to contribute to the 30 national leaders brown has linked together including kim and jack ma committing to uniting the smartest learning generation

what those 30 leader really need to do is convene one meeting at brac where they go through the order of missing curricula interventions that brac has designed over 45 years around empowering girls- if people are serious about sustainability goals out of every community the fact is that while there the only mothers are women it will always be the case that the source of extreme challenges to a community's sustainability hit on girls first -in other woprd women have to be the greatest innovators not scientific males where we need einstein and von neuman system designs of mapping at more micro detail - for some strange reason academics make that terminology complicates - see nanotechnology partners of www.amma.org

I am sure that the  people in this TO list
1 understand far better than my summary what i have just reported
2 can find a way to brief gordon brown

both ian and sarah were at dads remembrance party at The Economist. Ian has co-worked longest with me in trying to change mass media of hi tech brands. His current city of london friends include a lady who has just been headhunted by prince charles from leading the marketing of one of the biggest insurance companies leaving the reality tv producer richard curtis with project everyine-   women empowerment is her (prince charles trust newest chief networker) deepest joy. Sarah (Lord Sainsbury's daughter) has partnered with prince charles at Ashden Awards, sustainable and renewable energy in the UK and developing world on the leading microsolar worldwide prize network and attended the fashion4development annual  luncheon hosted by 50 first ladies the day before the start of the un year on the occasion that they made sir fazle abed their main laureate

George professor of medicine at melbourne with the lancet is open sourcing a curriculum of adolescent health which may turn out to be almost as revolutionary in scaling as the basic service of infant and maternal health

I think if gordon brown understood this chronology he could make sir fazle abed's 80th birthday wish come true - namely that gordon jack ma and jim kim as 3 most jobs and girls empowerment connectors of the greatest #learninggeneration visit brac- so far all of kim gordon and bill gates sent youtibe telegrams on sir fazle 80th birthday party but havent evidently asked him for ideas on linking in b=greatest #learninggeneration- he was very clear when we asked him - please help china and bangladesh digitally interconnect poorest women and vilage entrepreneurs and open educators

so all we have so far is 4 chinese girls editing a newsletter of what is going on in china for sir fazle- two of them know jack ma's biographer at tsinghua university; ms ying lowrey who is a fascinating character as her first job was as a barefoot doctor and tsinghua is one of the space jinping public servants and jack ma's craziest digital entrepreneurs brainstorm privately at least once a year; 2017 is the ,ost critical year in china to as for his second 5 year term jinping is allowed to choose 6 of the top 7 people; at jim kim's second 5 year term which also started in 2017 there is no such good fortune instead a paul romer who doesnt understand the most revolutionary technology of all micro-empowerment blockchain and whose knowledge of indias and bangladesh is not great and as yet i havent interviewed him on china

probably gordon brown needs to tour tsinghua- it has other exciting connectors- eg the branch of brookings at tsinghua is led by someone who spent his life on green energy while the branch of brookings where i live in washington dc has a china research unit whose leader writes up the  english language version of future diaries of jinping and g20 leaders and brics and one belt partnerships (china smartly and so far peacefully unites nations in clusters with segmented sustainability crises) and shares this with kissinger and 100 chinese americans he has most trusted to build goodwill between the 2 countries for nearly 30 years EVENT: Henry A. Kissinger Keynotes Committee of 100 Event "U.S.-China Relations in the Trump-Xi Era" in New York | December 14, 2016 - Committee of 100



amy (alizee) has tracked reporting of this over the last 18 months in usa - her first experience outside of china where she graduated in biotechnology but found like jack ma that her initial job prospects were only amplified by teaching herself english language- this should be god news from british council and british aid- father's 1984 book predicted the 3 main literacies of global village civics youth in addition to mother tongue that every 21st c kid should have nearly free access to :
chinese, english, coding maths
british aid as dfid now calls itself remains the greatest intergenerational investor in brac though georges country australia is now partnering in that and much smarter at partnering jack ma than the uk

finally where i first found brac, tania zaman kindly introduced me - she was then sir fazle abed's chief of brand chartering - she and the head of brac bank attended yunus 69th birthday party which father sponsored and where the bbc climate reporter and colleague of sarah and prince charles paul rose joined in- that was 2009; in 2010 yunus completely lost the bank and hasina's governmengt also took over the part of grameen phone he had owned on behalf of poorest village women; by 2012 sir fazle abed and the ambassador of japan to dhaka were kindly celebrating das remembrances with 2 roundtables on how brac needed to build the world's largest cashless bank www.bkash.com - this is the best that can be done if universal mobile connectivity is only text based; if you want the best when it is smart phone based you go and tour hangzhou as 17 g20 leaders did with great relish but english speaking obama and may were not in the right mood to do

Back at yunus 69th birthday party in 2009 was where we found out that yunus was most displeased to have a birthday wish brainstorming- unknown to me he was already losing control of his bank and turning into the most departnentalised of bottom fundraiser not the most open of girls empowerment educators- meanwhile there was an argument between yunus and the leader of his green energy division in which yunus second daughter and barua's son got messed up in

sorry if this story was too long - the devil of how to end poverty is always in a web of family details with every expert knowing one piece of the story but usually not enough of all parts to dare to let children know all about this at k-12

happy20th birthday china mobile

this case study from excellent mit china researchers paper on smart cities



 China Mobile China Mobile Limited, as the leading mobile services provider in Mainland China, was incorporated in Hong Kong on 3 September 1997. China mobile is mainly engaged in mobile voice, data, IP telephone and multimedia services. Before all levels of government begin to construct smart city, China Mobile have launched various products and service which make city smart. In 2006, the first smart mobile network, the world’s largest softswitch tandem network, and the world’s largest data service management platform (DSMP) was built by China Mobile. In addition, they provided many applications, such as Locating Ambulance, E-Hospital services, Campus Information Service, Grid Enabled Urban Management Information System, Police Information Service, Disaster Alert System. Most of them are provided through Short Messaging Service (SMS) and their advantages in network technology.

In 2007, they come up with Next Generation GSM (NG-GSM), with the concurrent developments in 2G and 3G technologies. They also developed various products and services, such as Machine to Machine Services (M2M), banking information service, municipal information service, building an information system to track meat production and food safety. In 2008, they proposed “Wireless City” strategy, which plan and promote city-level initiatives using mobile telecommunications technology, such as CUPUM 2015 The development of smart cities in China 291-13 TD-SCDMA technology. It is a program under government leadership, including unified wireless broadband access for all citizens and wireless services in various fields.

In 2009, China Mobile launched Mobile Market, which is a platform for industry chain collaboration and innovative business models. Mobile Market provides 3 Platforms, that is, consumer-oriented one-stop sales platform, developer-oriented one-stop service platform, and industrial chainoriented one-stop support platform. In 2010, China Mobile pushed forward the perfection of TD-SCDMA Long Term Evolution (TD-LTE) technology and made breakthrough in the research fields of cloud computing and the Internet of Things. They also established the “114 Strategy” for the development of the Internet of Things, and developed key technologies and standardized products, such as applications for energy and transportation sectors among others.

In 2011, China Mobile established a new model featuring “Smart Pipe + Open Platform + Featured Businesses + Integrated Interface”. Mobile Market (MM), which refer to the open platform achieved 1.58 million customers and over 630 million times of downloads cumulatively. They had completed the development of the “Internet of Things” applications in the agricultural, industrial and service sectors, and integrating “Wireless City” with public administration, public services, traffic control, healthcare, education, employment, finance and shopping and others. In 2012, China Mobile achieved the many exceptional advances, such as TD-LTE development, IDC construction, Internet of Things platform construction, Call Center Construction, Logistics Center Construction.

In 2013, China Mobile successfully implemented TD-LTE trial and commercialization of 4G technology. Their 4G service became available in 16 cities in 2013. With the existing technologies, facilities and platform, such as IOT, cloud computing, they developed a growing variety of applications in 2013. ...China Mobile mainly focused on the construction of network layer, and provided applications basing on the advantages of its network coverage. In 2006, their business was limited in application layer and network layer, however, in 2013, all layers are included. Meanwhile, each of layers is developing with more advanced technology, providing more diversified services (Figure 4).

Last week after his latest round of Sino-US ping pong (ie briefing jinping in beijing and trump in NY) Kissinger briefed the 100+chinese-american network he helped to start up in 1989 on the most inspired economics idea we have heard to start 2017. Please lets do everything we can to prevent US and China going into a cold war on jobs the sustainability generation need toi co-create. If China and USA unite on collaboration map of sustainability livelihoods (many wonderful ones rehearsed with G20 leaders at Hangzhou 2016 then every nation will be free not to take sides on racing towards sustainability. However this does raise awkward questions about the role of University in facilitating the massive innovation exchanges youth now need as we pose at this job creation search conversation at The Economist

University Club NY 12/15.2016: Henry Kissinger  surrounded by members of the Committee of 100, an organization ensuring the inclusion of Chinese-Americans and advancing U.S.-China relations.

Optimism from veteran participants in U.S.-China relations

4 days ago
Lucas Niewenhuis
A
t an event in New York, Henry Kissinger and other distinguished panelists expressed hope amid uncertainty about the new American administration.

On December 2 in Beijing, Chinese president Xi Jinping met Henry Kissinger, considered by many the architect of contemporary U.S.-China relations. Less than 24 hours later, president-elect Donald Trump picked up a phone call from Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen. The direct contact between the two leaders upended nearly four decades of U.S. government convention initiated by Kissinger and others in 1979. However, despite Trump’s willingness to forgo diplomatic protocol and apparent intention to confront China rather than cooperate with it, Kissinger said that he is “optimistic that the cooperative way will prevail.”
He was speaking at an event in New York City titled “U.S.-China Relations in the Trump-Xi Era.” On Wednesday, SupChina published a short report on comments that Henry Kissinger made at the event. What follows is a more detailed review, including opinions voiced by other panelists: Cheng Li, director of the Brookings Thornton China Center and author of Chinese Politics in the Xi Jinping Era, Bing Xiang, founding dean of the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, and Frank Wu, chairman of the Committee of 100, who spoke to SupChina in an interview after the panel.
Kissinger and Li both expressed hope that U.S.-China relations would generally stay their course and that Trump would eventually decide to not “tamper with that matrix,” as Kissinger labeled the complex U.S.-Taiwan-China relationships. In addition, Kissinger cited the “unusually restrained” response of Chinese government officials to Trump as evidence that China shared his view, while Li took Trump at his word that he understands how to negotiate with Chinese people and has read books about China, including Kissinger’s On China.
Kissinger and Li were then asked if we had reached a “turning point” in U.S.-China relations, and they gave contrasting answers. Kissinger noted that with every new administration and leadership change, there is a possibility of “revolution.” However, he points out that we have — through eight administrations, on a bipartisan basis — consistently seen it as in our collective interest to cooperate with each other, so this probably will not be a turning point. Li stated that it is likely a turning point, though not necessarily for the worse, as now the U.S. and China both have strong personalities for leaders. Trump in particular, Li said, will either be very successful or a huge failure.
Wu, when reached for later comment, disagreed with the question. He pointed out that strong forces of globalization have been in place and shaped China to such a degree that a “turning point” metaphor is unhelpful. “We’re always at a turning point,” he said. “Ten years ago, Facebook was nothing. Five years ago, Twitter was nothing. Alibaba, WeChat, all of them, nothing.” The turning point metaphor “means that you reach a point, and then you turn…but I think that change is constant,” he explained. He suggested that we instead view a changing world and changing U.S.-China relations with the metaphor of a “continuous circle or cycle,” and added that “we are just at an especially tense point of the cycle.”
Wu also discussed globalization and China’s economic future in an earlier panel with Xiang. Xiang noted several realities in modern China that have changed it rapidly — the adoption of capitalism and economic openness, the explosion of internet access, and rapidly growing inequality very similar to the U.S. — and one reality that hasn’t changed, namely, the Confucian norm of respect for a ruling technocratic elite. He additionally pointed out that China embodies a dependence on global trade and interconnectedness far greater than the U.S. and much more in line with Germany, so he expects it to shy away from open conflict in the South China Sea and advocate like Germany for continued globalization.
Discussion of China embracing globalization and change, and of how this trend is important in defining U.S.-China relations, ran throughout the event. When asked if the populist wave sweeping the U.S. and much of the world would extend to China, Li stated that globalization has no strong opponent in China. He explained that President Xi Jinping’s agenda, including for a China more involved in international affairs, is supported by a groundswell of nationalist support among the public and business community but opposed by a much smaller group of intellectuals — and of course by officials who had benefited from corruption in the past.
The optimistic note struck by the panelists was mirrored by Wu, who commented on the role Chinese-Americans play in relations between the two countries. He discovered from a young age that because of his race, he had no choice but to be perceived as an ambassador of China in America, and believes that “Chinese-Americans can, should, and must play a role in U.S.-China relations.” But he would not be drawn into making any specific predictions about how the relationship would develop in the age of Xi and Trump. “We haven’t seen this before,” he emphasized, speaking of China’s rapid rise. He sees his role and the point of his organization, which co-hosted the event, as building bridges and educating, rather than making grand predictions.

help us follow up hangzhou consenus and 7 wonders of jack ma and xi jinping - where is XI traveling to next to celebrate win-win trades
Oct 2016 : China’s President Xi Jinping landed in Dhaka on Friday marking the first visit by a Chinese head of state to Bangladesh in 30 years.
Chinese state-media heralded the visit as a diplomatic “milestone” of “historic significance,” as the two countries will sign at least 21 agreements amounting to nearly $40 billion investment in Bangladesh.
The deal comes after of a series of investments made by Chinese companies in Bangladesh in the past several months — including a $1.1 billion deal signed this week by Chinese cable manufacturer Jiangsu Etern Co. to strengthen the South Asian country’s power grid, and a $3.1 billion deal by China Railway Group to build nearly 170 km of railroads connecting the capital Dhaka to southwestern cities.
Xi is on a diplomatic tour that began in Cambodia and will culminate in a visit to India, during which he will attend the BRICS Summit in Goa.

ambassadors

unveil the secret

extract
Tsinghua SEM's think : nThe reporter from The Southern Metropolis Daily learns that, this low profile think tank is full of heavyweights,with former Premier ZHU Rongji as its Honorary Chairman. Its 61 members are all significant influencers in the world,including Chairman, President or CEO of top multinational corporations, Dean of world-famous business schools, typically domestic entrepreneurs and China's senior finance officials, such as Co-Founder and Co-CEO of The Carlyle Group, Chairman & CEO of General Motors Company,Global Managing Director of McKinsey & Company, Inc.,Chairman & CEO of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc., and Finance Minister LOU Jiwei as well as Governor of the People’s Bank of China, ZHOU Xiaochuan. New faces this year include Jim Breyer, Board Member of Harvard Business School, Tim Cook, CEO of Apple,Jack MA, Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group, and LIU He, Minister of the Office of the Central Leading Group on Financial and Economic Affairs. Although this think tank has been frequently received by state leaders in the past 14 years, little information has been made public about it. This is the first time the secret think tank has been officially revealed with the Advisory Board convening its 14th annual meeting last week, which included the meeting between President XI and its overseas members.
Advisory Board’s Overseas Members’ First Meeting with China's President
"As world-renowned entrepreneurs, you have profound understanding of the global economy and China's economic development. I'd like to know about your insights” and "your suggestions will be a significant source of inspiration for the Chinese government", said President Xi with a smile when he met with the 22 heads of celebrated foreign companies at Diaoyutai State Guesthouse.
These entrepreneurs are from all over the globe across various backgrounds and industries, except one common unique identity – “overseas members of Tsinghua SEM's Advisory Board".
The reporter found out that, since 2002,members of the Advisory Board had been received by China's state leaders like LI Lanqing (then-Vice-Premier), WU Bangguo (then-Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress) , ZENG Peiyan (then-Vice-Premier), WANG Qishan (then-Vice-Premier), and LI Keqiang (then-Vice-Premier). This is the first year they are meeting China's President.
Many higher education institutions insiders told the reporter that the reason the think tank was received by many state leaders is due to the great interest in its members who are high profile business leaders.
Large-scale Teaching by 14 Advisory Board Members at Tsinghua
"I went for Risto's lecture and gave him a hand fan as a small gift. I also explained to him about the four Chinese characters written on the fan-Ning Jing Zhi Yuan,which literally means Inner Peace, as Master Shifu told Po in Kung Fu Panda.He was exhilarated." said a Tsinghua SEM student excitedly reflecting on the lecture a week ago by Risto K. Siilasmaa, member of the Advisory Board and Chairman of Nokia Corporation.
Just the day before meeting with President XI, 14 Advisory Board members entered Tsinghua classroom and had face-to-face communication with students in small classroom sessions.
According to Tsinghua SEM, the board members mainly teach in high level topics which vary from member to member depending on their expertise and experience. Risto's theme is "Entrepreneurship is a Life Style." Li Rongrong, Former Chairman of State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, shared his view on China taking the opportunity in the "Big Data and Cloud Era". Victor 
K. Fung, Honorary Chairman of Li & Fung Limited and Group Chairman of Fung Group, lectured on the history of the family business and his managerial experience. Some overseas board members had interactions with students on topics like "How could China and Europe Work Together to Promote the Stability of Global Financial System", "To Cultivate 21 Century Leadership", "Academic Growth and Individual's Role in Family Business","Interaction with Political and Academic Circles", "Bilateral Relations of China and Chile", etc.
"We confirm with board members about their topics in advance, and students select the topic they are interested in and attend classes accordingly", said a liaison officer who was involved in organizing such classes. This is the first large-scale teaching by the board members at Tsinghua and their lectures are not open to media.
Information released by Tsinghua SEM reveals that, from the year 2008 to 2012,there have been only 8 board members entering Tsinghua classroom so far. This large-scale teaching, according to Tsinghua SEM, is beneficial for both students and board members, because students get the rare opportunity to interact with board members face-to-face, while board members are able to understand what China's youngest and most talented students are thinking about.
ZHU Rongji Reflecting on the Board's Origin in his Farewell Speech
Tsinghua SEM, founded in 1984, is the successor to the Department of Economics. In October 2000, the Advisory Board of Tsinghua SEM was initiated by SEM’s Founding Dean ZHU Rongji, who elaborated on its origin in Dean's farewell speech in 2001.
"In 1984, I accepted LIU Da's invitation to work as Dean of Tsinghua SEM. Although I never learned economics, I took courage to rise to the challenge because of my great interest in management." said ZHU Rongji.With little time left for SEM's work due to his busy political schedule, ZHU Rongji always felt he didn't perform the duty well to his alma mater. "Therefore I invited top managers across the world to set up the Advisory Board in hope that it would help SEM's development." ZHU Rongji has made it clear that he would only be the Honorary Chairman of the Advisory Board after leaving SEM. "As Honorary Chairman, it doesn't matter whether I come or not, and I will never delay the function of the Board," he said.
After leaving his post in 2001, ZHU Rongji maintains the yearly meeting with Advisory Board members. On the same day as President XI received the overseas members, ZHU Rongji met with all the board members who attended the annual meeting. During the one and a half hour discussion, ZHU Rongji raised a humorous question, "Why do our board members look younger?" Dominic Barton,Global Managing Director of McKinsey & Company, Inc., replied with a smile,"Because we are with Tsinghua students."
After a comparative survey and interview of China's other well-known higher education institutions’ Advisory Board,such as Peking University's Guanghua School of Management and South University of Science and Technology of China (SUSTC), the reporter concluded that they have fewer high-profile members than Tsinghua SEM's.
"World-renowned universities and colleges all have special agency and personnel to offer consulting. It is the same in China. We are seeing more Advisory Board, Committee of Experts and Board of Trustees being established in higher education institutions." said ZHU Yongxin,Deputy Secretary-General of National Committee of the CPPCC, Vice-Chairman of China Association for Promoting Democracy, and Vice President of Chinese society of Education. "University should not be isolated from society. Practical subjects like economics and management,is supposed to connect with real life," he said.
The Think Tank Provides Intellect, Fund and Resource Support
What function does the Advisory Board perform? A Tsinghua SEM alumnus sums up as follows: data, project, academic opportunity,scholarship and cooperation.
Tsinghua SEM's recent public information shows that the Advisory Board connects SEM and the world, and it plays an important role in various aspects, such as SEM's cooperation with multinational corporations,construction of international standard research centers and labs, strengthening collaboration with celebrated foreign business schools, professional lecture series and internship opportunities.
On September 17, board member Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director of McKinsey & Company, Inc., signed with SEM a cooperation memo. He will offer global leadership course at Tsinghua and join in Tsinghua MBA Integrative Practice Project, in which he mainly carries
out leadership project. At the meeting with ZHU Rongji last year, many board members said they were impressed to see suggestions they had provided for SEM's development the year before being put into action, which reflected well on SEM's excellent execution ability. In response,
ZHU Rongji said, "I'm confident that, with your assistance, we could build Tsinghua SEM to be one of the world's first-rate business schools like Harvard Business School, Stanford Business School and MIT-Sloan."
Several Presidents of China's higher education institutions told the reporter that, heads of world-famous corporations make great suggestions in cultivating economics and management talents,

and more importantly they also assist the university to broaden the vision and strengthen its connection with the outside world. “Although Advisory Board members visit the university only once or twice a year, their suggestions are critical in guiding the school forward,”said ZHU Qingshi, President of SUSTC.He also stressed that SUSTC used to invite board members to have face-to-face panel discussion with students in order to promote direct interactions.
