How will European-Chinese and Danish-Chinese relations develop over the next 10, 20 and 30 years in regard to trade and co-operation within economy, innovation, science, education and culture? China’s former Ambassador to Denmark from 2002 to 2006, Mr. Zhen Jianguo will share his assessment and his best forecast with the participants in the meeting.
For Danes ambassador Zhen’s assessment will be of a particular interest. Since 1964, when Zhen Jianguo as a young student began the studies of Danish language and culture at University of Copenhagen, he has followed Danish affairs for more than 50 years and spent more than 15 years in Denmark including three postings at China’s Embassy in Denmark.
