This year my visit to China has been shorter than in the past, and therefore I had to cancel my visits to the Swiss Embassy in Beijing and to CELAP (China Executive Leardership Academy Pudong, Shanghai) where I was invited to give a conference on Public-Private Partnerships. Nevertheless, I was able to have several interesting meetings with professors Hu Angang (Tsinghua School of Public Policy and Management), Liu Qiushi (Research Center on NGOs, Tsinghua University), and Qin Ruimin (Renmin University).
In Chongqing I had meetings with Prof. Su Wei and gave a conference at the Chongqing Party School on the topic of the China dream.
I also had meetings at the Chongqing Law and Political Science University with Prof. Guo Xiaoke and the Vice-dean of the Public Management School (Prof. Zou Dongsheng) where I gave a conference on Public-Private Partnerships and their relevance for China.
While in Chongqing I was able to visit the cargo railway station of the railway between Chongqing and Germany (See photos below).
The article I was asked last year by Prof. Su Wei to write on the topic of China Dream has been published in Chinese : "Shèhuì biàngé yǔ zhōngguó mèng" (Social change and China Dream), Tànsuǒ (Probe), Chongqing, 15 October 2014, pp. 173-181 (translated from the original English version by Ms Zhang Junling), available at http://www.cjon.cn/probe/publish_article/2014/5/20140532.pdf.
