“许多有钱人为外游感到发愁,他们想去Chinese-free的地方(Free不是自由,而是「见不到」的意思)。”
——陶杰

“世界焦虑于如何理解中国,中国也在焦虑于如何理解自身。” —— 许知远

与無界限講堂UnThinkTank联合呈献。

CHINA RE-VISIONED

China is no doubt a rich topic ripe for discussion, and who better than Hong Kong’s Chip Tsao and Beijing’s Xu Zhiyuan, both revered in their own right, to tackle the subject? Catch both columnists and literati together in Singapore as they chew on the topic with their characteristic wits, depth and engaging insights.

This session is in Mandarin with simultaneous English interpretation.
