Dear friends, viagra 60mg

2011 was an exciting and eventful year at Columbia Global Centers | East Asia as Professor Safwan M. Masri—Chair of the Columbia Global Centers Director Group and Director of the Columbia Global Centers | Middle East—became our Acting Director. Additionally, we significantly expanded our full-time staff and moved from Tsinghua Science Park to our new office in the tech hub of Zhongguancun.

 

While continuing projects such as Studio-X Beijing and the Urban China Initiative, we also organized and hosted a wide variety of programs to further Columbia’s academic research and dialogue in China. We invite you to peruse the past year’s highlighted news and events below–and we look forward to welcoming you soon to our new office!

 

Regards,

TheCGC | East Asia Team

 

Programs

Urban China Initiative

Ina joint initiative with Tsinghua University and McKinsey & Company, we’ve continued to develop the Urban China Initiative (UCI), a think-tank composed of representatives from the worlds of academia, government, business, and non-government organizations. UCI brings together these leaders to tackle a tremendous challenge facing the Chinese government: the largest migration tour ban metropolises in human history.

 

UCI sponsors research on urban development in China and grants funding to student sand faculty, including two recent recipients from Columbia University. In October, CGC | East Asia co-organized the UCI 2011 Annual Forum at Tsinghua University. At the hugely successful event, some of the more than 200 guests volunteered to stand in order to attend the conference. Columbia Professors Elliott Sclar and Saskia Sassen presented their research at the forum.

Summer Palace Dialogue between Chinese and American Economists

In its second year of involvement, the Center took a leading role co-ordinating the 2011 Summer Palace Dialogue between Chinese and American Economists (SPD).SPD serves as a track two dialogue between economists and policymakers of both countries, this past year tackling current problems emanating from the global economic crisis. Former CGC | East Asia Director Xiao Geng negotiated the economic focus for 2011 and participated in the Dialogue.

 

Other participants included Columbia Professor Merit Janow—Chair of the Faculty Steering Committee of the Columbia Global Centers | East Asia,— retired U.S. Admiral William Owens, Nobel laureate Michael Spence, and former Chair of the U.S. Council of Economic Advisors Laura Tyson. Evening participants included the U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke and Deputy Governor of the People’s Bank of China Yi Gang. CGC staff worked tirelessly throughout, developing briefing materials through macroeconomic research, providing U.S. participants’ logistics support, and co-managing the day of the event. The Center also hosted a CGC | East Asia advisory board meeting prior to the event’s public session.

 

CGC |East Asia Annual Conferences

Throughout2011, the Center co-organized conferences that engaged Columbia professors on a range of East Asia-focused dialogues. In March, we co-organized the symposium titled “Reforming the Global Monetary System,” featuring Professor of Economics Joseph Stiglitz.

 

July featured the International Healthcare Leadership Symposium, hosted by Columbia Professor David Roye. The symposium represented a high-level dialogue between healthcare leaders, this year on the topic of “Effective Hospital Management and Policy, Treatment and Prevention.”

 

Moreover, in June, the Center assisted with the organization of the International Policy Advisory Group meeting, coordinating with Columbia professors, providing conference materials, and managing the site. Opened by Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, discussion revolved around current key economic issues that served as the basis for recommendations to the November 2011 G20 Summit.

 

Weatherhead Forum in Beijing

In October, the Center successfully organized a three-part lecture series entitled “China and its Neighbors: From Pyongyang to Kabul” in conjunction with the Weatherhead East Asian Institute and Renmin University. Professors Charles Armstrong, Morris Rossabi, and Elizabeth Wishnick lectured on fascinating overviews of China’s relations with North Korea, Mongolia, and Afghanistan respectively. Scores of students, faculty, embassy officials, and other members of the public attended the lectures and participated in the subsequent dialogues.

 

Academic Activities and Visits

CGC staff also organized a series of continuing programs throughout 2011. The Monthly Scholars’ Luncheon program brings a dozen leaders from academia, business, and government to discuss U.S.-China economic and strategic cooperation. The Center also provided on-the-ground assistance for visits from Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Office of Admissions, School of the Arts, and more. In the first official Columbia University visits to local high schools, Columbia administrators met with staff and students of several top high schools in Beijing and Shanghai to further mutual understanding. In conjunction with the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), the Center also continued to support Studio-X Beijing—a local base for collaborative architectural research, exhibitions, and cultural exchanges.

 

Alumni Events

Throughout the year, the Center co-organized and participated in alumni events with the Columbia Alumni Association of Beijing. Events included an honorary dinner for Dr. Clyde Wu and Sir Gordon Wu, a summer reception at Capital M, an evening cocktail event at Temple Restaurant, and the donation of an elementary school library in Hebei Province. More events this year are sure to come; please stay in touch!

 

Internship Program

The Center hosted some 20 interns and volunteers over the last year from a variety of backgrounds. They engaged in activities ranging from assisting Columbia faculty in their research to organizing conferences and events. The Center offers volunteer opportunities to high school students and internship positions to college and graduate students. We are always looking for sharp and enthusiastic volunteers and interns. If you know any qualified candidates, please do contact us.
