(Victor Valley) — An entrepreneur in biotechnology will share his perspective on doing business in China when the Modern China Lecture Series presents its latest program on Friday, June 6, at Cal State San Bernardino.
“Changes for More Innovative, Collaborative, and Sustainable Business in China: Personal Experience and Observation” will take place beginning at 10 a.m. at the university’s John M. Pfau Library, room PL-4005. The lecture is free; parking at CSUSB is $5.
The speaker, Chun Zhou, will talk about several fascinating dimensions of the Chinese economy, providing his perspectives as a scientist and a local business leader.
Zhou received his doctorate in macromolecular science and engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, after receiving his master of science degree from the National University of Singapore and his bachelor’s degree from the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
After receiving his doctorate, Zhou worked for the American chemical companies Lubrizol Advanced Materials and DuPont, performing a wide range of duties from technical management to marketing.
Understanding China’s rapidly changing economy is an urgent obligation of any informed global citizen, and Zhou is positioned to share key insights about the world’s second-largest economy and the challenges that have come with rapid industrialization. As China innovates, it also must deal with sustainability issues in both business and its environment.
This program in the Modern China Lecture series is sponsored by the CSUSB history department, the student History Club, College of Extended Learning, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, University Diversity Committee, Pfau Library, Intellectual Life Fund and the NEH Lecture Series, with the help of communication studies professor Rueyling Chuang. Previous topics the series covered include the impact of the Tiananmen Square protests 25 years later, the influence of China on the African continent, and China’s market economy under its autocratic, one-party government.
