Association for Chinese Economic Development presents WASSUP CHINA 2010

Friday, December 3
East Hall Math Atrium and Auditorium

Event Overview
As a country that has just recently surpassed Japan as the second largest economy of the world, China is at the forefront of discussion in the news today. China has grown at double digit numbers per year for many years, the standard of living has improved dramatically with 400 million people rising above the global poverty line. This notable economic growth has served as a good lesson for many developing countries. It is this phenomenal growth that the University of Michigan’s student organizations wish to explore and provide a deeper understanding of the issues and concerns revolving around China’s growth through an economic and cultural fair.

The objective of our event is to address the social, cultural and economic transformations of China in the past 30 years, how the new values and meaning affects the world and particularly students at the University of Michigan. This event will not only serve as a great opportunity for student to gain their knowledge on issues about China, but also serve as a social event for students to interact with professors and professionals to broaden networks and be inspired by different views on the issue.
