On Wednesday 4 March Nigel Inkster, former director of operations and intelligence for the British Secret Intelligence Service, gave a fascinating talk on China’s search for a modern identity. Here Christiane, UIV, and Maya, LV, tell us more:
Mr Inkster gave a primer on China’s diverse and rich history, and explained how these events led up to the China we see today. From Confucius to Xi Ping, we were lead through China’s ups and downs to see how it has developed into one of the world’s superpowers. Later, the audience had the chance to ask their burning questions, both about the China of the past and what we are likely to see in the future. On behalf of all those involved, I would like to thank Ms Zeng for organising and Mr Inkster for delivering such a lovely talk.
