Arizona State University enjoys a special relationship with Sichuan University, a major university in what is considered western China. In fact, ASU President Michael Crow and his team have established deep and enduring relationships all across China, which I believe will pay dividends for generations to come.
Our delegation participated in a roundtable discussion with about 20 students from the university. A highlight of this meeting was former Congressman Matt Salmon using his fluent Mandarin to discuss issues with the students.
The students were all very bright, gracious and well informed about the world. Most expressed an interest in visiting or working in the United States.
The Arizona delegation all left with a good feeling following our discussion with China’s Gen Y.
