What are the major developments in China in terms of its domestic policies and major trends? And what are the implications of these changes to Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and to the Dutch economy at large?
Subjects for the first Meet-up are China’s rural revitalization strategy and the One-Belt-One-Road (OBOR) initiative. What does China’s rural revitalization policy entail and why is it relevant for WUR? What is the current state of OBOR and how likely is it to succeed? These are the central questions to be explored during this first China Meet-up.
