The Netherlands’ Ministry of Foreign Affairs is pleased to invite you to a public lecture and discussion on ‘China and the West’ with professor Kishore Mahbubani on 23 May. His arrival, fortuitously timed around the publication of a new China policy paper by the Dutch government, allows us to sound out one of the world’s most prominent thinkers on Asia’s role in the world.
This event is organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in close cooperation with Krijger & Partners, China Circle and student associations CIROS, BASIS and NAHSS.
