The Nexus conference brought together diplomats, politicians and intellectuals from around the world to talk about the world of power. One of the panellists was Zhang Weiwei, professor international relations and  director of the China Institute at the Fudan University in Shanghai.

Professor Zhang is a board member at China’s National Think Tanks Council. In the mid-1980’s, he worked as senior English interpreter for Deng Xiaoping and many other Chinese political leaders. Zhang wrote the award-winning trilogy about the rise of China as a world power: The China Ripple (2008), The China Wave (2012) and The China Horizon (2016).

Why do so many Chinese in the West would like to stay? How will the world develop (westernization/easternization or multipolar/convergence)? How would China improve the world as a world power? Listen to CRTV‘s interview with professor Zhang Weiwei.
