              Academic Hall. Yang Haitao, Party Secretary of HZU, Liu Guodong, HZU Vice President, staff

              of Economy and Management and Department of Foreign Languages. Vice President Liu hosted the

              lecture.

 

              Professor Dunn first introduced India and China in the eyes of westerners, and then presented the

              economic development of America, one that represents the biggest economic system in the world.

              Later, he compared India, America and China in terms of literate people, Internet users, laboring

              population, import and export trade, and then concluded that China and India are countries that

              have huge potential for further development. Meanwhile, he also summarized the economic

              development and challenges India and China are facing, pointing out that the GDP of China is

              second highest in the world and economic level is increasing; however, sustainable development

              should be taken into account during the economic construction of China.

 

              During the interactive session, Professor Dunn put forward the question of “China and India

              who can bid for the global economic leadership” to the students who attended the meeting,

              and he guided students to think about how to face the challenges in order to put our country’s

              economy in a dominant position. Students answered the question enthusiastically and the present

              atmosphere was pretty active.
