On the evening of November.14th, all seats in C104 of D9 were occupied, where nearly 150 international students from different countries attended the lecture given by Prof. Wang Bing from the School of Public Administration with the theme as Chinese Political System and Governance System. Tilak, the director general of SLIDA and Zhao Xiaofeng, the vice dean of the School of International Education presented the lecture as well.
"The leaders in China has a tough and long way to go in their political career that starts from the fundamental social level, which is unimaginable for Trump.” Prof. Wang livened up the atmosphere with his humorous words. He covered a lot of topics with abundant facts and statistics, from China’s development in the past three decades to the challenge faced by the government currently, from the widely spread Made-in-China products to the comparison between China and USA in the governance system, from the core status of the ruling party to the socialism democracy and rule of law, which drew the intensive attention from the present audience.
In the interaction part, the international students forwarded a question one after another without exhaustion. ”Is there any other party in China？If there is any, what are they consisted of?” “What’s the financial resources of the ruling party?” “Where does the democracy lie in socialism?” Encountered with the flooded questions, Prof. Wand answered them and cleared the students’ doubts one by one patiently. “It’s my first time to attend a lecture on Chinese political and governance system and it’s amazing!” THITHIT ATCHATTABHAN commented, and he was a HUST alumni who just returned to the campus and attended the lecture specially.
