Based on the same pursuit, more close cooperation between China and America is expected in economy, education and medicine. He also encourages Yenching scholars to expose themselves more on Chinese society and broaden their horizons, fighting for the benefits of the human race.
The Ambassador Speaker Series is of great significance for the extracurricular programs of Yenching Academy. Before Max Baucus, Stanley Loh, Singapore’s Ambassador to China and Ron Keller, Ambassador of the Netherlands to China are the two guests of the activity.
