Earlier this month, members of the Princeton Alumni Association of Beijing and Hong Kong headed to Shenzhen for the annual gala of the Research Institute of Tsinghua in Shenzhen. In the process of forming a cooperation with the Research Institute of Tsinghua in Shenzhen, the Princeton Alumni Association took the opportunity to join the gala and visit the institute headquarters.
The gala was the premier event of the weekend in Guangdong, attracting entrepreneurs, businessmen, and alumni across the country. Head of the institute, Dr. Ji Shishan, gave the opening speech followed by PAABJ president Alex Edmunds. Following dinner, the graduating classes of alumni gave “skits” on display throughout the region via Guangdong tv.
The following day, the Princeton delegation visited the institute headquarters, where we viewed the most important inventions to have come out of the institute, including a drug for SARS. We were also given an introduction to the institute by former head of the Tsinghua Venture Capital Fund, Dr. Fang Zhu. In the afternoon, the delegation crossed the strait to Zhuhai, where we saw the Science Park.
We hope that more experiences like these can lead to more interaction and closer cooperation between China’s leading entrepreneurs and those from the West.
